Dr. William “Bill” Vergados attended the University of Illinois at Chicago for his undergraduate studies. Understanding thatindividualized care and patient management would be a critical component to his success as a dentist, he pursued a degree in Psychology. To connect further to his Greek heritage, he also earned a degree in Classical Studies. With hard work and dedication, he graduated Summa Cum Laude and was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa honors society.
Dr. Vergados went on to study at Southern Illinois University, where he received his Doctorate in Dental Medicine. He graduated Magna Cum Laude and was presented with the Academy of Oral Medicine award. Further, by “distinguishing himself with excellence in scholarship and demonstrating exemplary traits of character,” Dr. Vergados was nominated by his faculty and inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental honors society. While at SIU, he had the privilege of participating in community outreach programs such as Give Kids a Smile, Mission of Mercy, Veteran’s Care Day, and the Jamaica Dental Mission Trip.
Dr. Vergados enjoys both prosthodontics and restorative dentistry because it gives him the opportunity to not only restore his patients’ smiles, but their confidence as well. Accepting the lifelong student philosophy, his goal is to acquire the skillset for more advanced rehabilitation cases alongside Dr. Goetz.
