Webster was founded in 1976 by Dr. Steve Rempas on Webster Street in Lincoln Park. Within a few years, the Webster name was synonymous with quality comfortable dentistry by a doctor and team that cares. That passion and commitment was valued in the community and so Webster began to grow to larger, more accessible and accommodating offices and locations.
We were pioneers. We believe in bringing care to patients by connecting with Specialists in the area to one central office, making it more convenient and comfortable for you, the patient.
We grew. We believe in this model and this approach and slowly, strategically acquired other practices in the Chicagoland area to bring care to a wider population.
We believe in quality over anything else. We are doctor owned. That says a lot in the market today and is a testament to our belief that care is best delivered when the patients’ needs aligned with the doctors recommended treatment are essential to a successful relationship.
