Meet Dr. Neil Warshawsky

“I am so thankful to have a career that allows me to do what I love: working with my hands, meeting new people, making others smile, and positively affecting others around me.  I enjoy meeting my patients for the first time and hearing their story about why they sought us out for care. I find it absolutely essential that I keep up to date with the latest technology in the field. I look forward to helping you achieve your perfect smile.”

Dr. Warshawsky is a born and bred true Chicago native. He attained all of his college training from the University of Illinois where he earned a total of five college degrees, culminating in his Orthodontic Certificate. Today he divides his time among the three pillars that support his practice.

Dr. Neil leads a world-class staff at Get It Straight Orthodontics. With four locations spread across the city and suburbs, they are a very high energy, dynamic practice that concentrates on delivering customized orthodontic solutions in comfortable, inviting atmospheres. High-end cosmetic efficiency is the focus of this patient-driven practice. However, as you walk around the offices you will quickly notice that there is more to the practice than just a pretty space. From a paperless approach, to the online portal, to the mobile website, the practice is completely designed to utilize today’s most advanced technologies to make sure every patient’s objectives are met and every question is answered.

When he is not in his private practice, Dr. Warshawsky is an Associate Professor of Orthodontics at the Craniofacial Center at the University of Illinois Health Center. With more than 18 years of cleft palate team experience and a vast knowledge of 3D imaging, he manages a large majority of the craniofacial cleft palate orthodontic cases. Dr. Warshawsky feels very fortunate to have the opportunity to practice orthodontics, and enjoys the ability to give back routinely at the University in a place that “Makes a Difference where it matters most.”

Lastly, to stay current, Dr. Warshawsky may be found on the road some 40+ times per year lecturing to audiences literally around the world on a number of subjects including building clear aligners, lingual orthodontics, and the use of fixed skeletal anchorage for more efficient mechanics.

With more than 18 articles published, and several active clinical trials current at any given moment, Dr. Neil stays busy. Outside of work, he is an Assistant Scoutmaster for Boy Scouts Troop 156 in Glenview, Illinois. When he is not working he may be found at home with his high school sweetheart or one of their three kids, or fishing at their family cabin in the Northern woods of Wisconsin.
