Meet Arthur Chal
Dr. Arthur Chal is driven to excel in all that he does. He is a consummate perfectionist who insists that nothing is too good for his patients. His long list of impressive dental credentials, and his recognitions and awards clearly attest to this.
Originally from the Midwest, he had a strong work ethic instilled in him from his youth. He did his undergraduate work at Northwestern University in Chicago, where he received the Minerva Club Award for scholastic achievement.
He attended dental school at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio, where he was a 1975 honors graduate and received the prestigious National Student Award in periodontics.
After graduation, he was one of only fifteen doctors selected from across the country for a residency program in surgery and prosthetic dentistry at the Great Lakes Naval Hospital near Chicago. As a result of that training, he is one of a very few dentists qualified to treat complex dental problems as a trauma team member.
