A graduate of Marquette University’s School of Dentistry (May, 1988), Dr. Gruchalski (Dr. Jon) established Willow Dental in July, 2014, after practicing dentistry in New Berlin for 26 years. When not treating his patients, Dr. Jon enjoys running, playing badminton, model railroading, and spending time with his wife, Joanne, and family.
“Providing our patients with a relaxed, welcoming office and up-to-date technology is what motivated us to open Willow Dental. Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible while waiting for your appointment. That’s why we designed the waiting area to feel more like a living room than a stuffy doctor’s office. Brew a cup of coffee or grab a cold beverage from the fridge while you wait. Our friendly staff will ensure you have everything you need. During your appointment, you’ll see we use the latest digital charts and x-rays to get you taken care of in a timely manner, allowing you to get on with your day. No longer will you be terrified by the sound of dental tools. We utilize quiet electric drills to ensure our relaxing atmosphere is carried throughout the entire office, including our operatories.”
At the heart of my practice is quality, passion and personalized dental care that is shared by everyone at Willow Dental. We welcome you to come in and welcome you to experience the Willow Dental way.
