From Our Family to Yours
Our husband and wife team of Dr. Ryan Hurley and Dr. Tonya Volk are from very different backgrounds. Dr. Hurley grew up in suburban Elgin, IL and Dr. Volk grew up on a farm in Battle Creek, NE. The two met in their orthodontic residency program at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where they realized they had more in common than just their orthodontic philosophies. Despite growing up so differently, the importance of family in both of their lives is prevalent.
Our Doctors: Continuing in Excellence
Drs. Hurley and Volk attend as many continuing education meetings as they can fit in their schedules. They take pride in keeping up-to-date with current orthodontic literature in order to give patients the best treatment possible with the most technologically efficient systems and appliances.
After completing their residency training, Drs. Hurley and Volk became certified by the American Board of Orthodontics after successfully presenting past treated cases to the board and passing written and oral examinations. A select minority of orthodontists complete these voluntary steps of board certification.
In addition, Drs. Hurley and Volk are members of the following professional organizations:
- American Board of Orthodontists
- American Association of Orthodontists
- Midwestern Society of Orthodontists
- Illinois Society of Orthodontists
- American Dental Association
- Illinois State Dental Society
- Chicago Dental Society
- Fox River Valley Dental Society, both Board members
- Elgin Area Dental Study Club, both past Presidents
- Schaumburg Business Association
- Elgin Area Chamber of Commerce
