A history of our Practice.
In July 1987, after completing his periodontics residency at Northwestern University, Dr. Mark Lindman established his first practice in Rockford, Illinois. Located on Brynwood Drive, the inaugural office of Periodontics of Rockford featured three treatment rooms and two staff members. During this period, Dr. Lindman collaborated with various dental groups in the Chicago area to steadily grow his Rockford practice.
Recognizing the need for expansion due to the practice's continuous growth, Periodontics of Rockford moved to a larger location at 1075 Featherstone Road in Rockford in November 1996. This relocation provided increased space to cater to the expanding number of patients.
In July 2006, the practice welcomed the expertise of Dr. Jeffrey Burch, enriching the team's capabilities. Dr. Burch's valuable contributions led to his partnership in the same year, solidifying his integral role within the practice. As the practice flourished, they expanded into the adjacent space at 1055 Featherstone Road.
Acknowledging the demand for their services in the Dixon and Sterling areas, Periodontics of Rockford established its third location in Dixon in November 2009, aiming to better serve patients in those regions.
In early 2005, while interviewing Dr. Burch at Southern Illinois University, Dr. Burch introduced Dr. Lindman to a senior dental student as a potential future partner. This student, Dr Brandon Hull, joined Periodontics of Rockford as the partner in the fall of 2014, further strengthening the practice.
Leading up to Dr. Hull's partnership, Dr. Burch and Dr. Hull collaborated to establish a new practice in Janesville, Wisconsin. Initially formed as a partnership with another dental specialty practice, they later acquired Dr. Anthony Urlakis' periodontal practice. This acquisition prompted their relocation to a newly renovated office on Main Street in downtown Janesville in late 2013, and the new establishment was named Periodontics & Implant Dentistry of Janesville.
Dr. Katrine Andreasen became a valuable addition to the practice in the summer of 2019. As a Board-Certified Periodontist accredited by the American Academy of Periodontology, Dr. Andreasen brings her expertise to Periodontics of Rockford. She is dedicated to providing exceptional care and specializes in a range of procedures, including extractions, bone grafts, implants, gum grafting, and LANAP surgery.
At the beginning of 2020, Periodontics of Rockford rebranded all of its offices as Featherstone Periodontics and Implant Dentistry.
Dr. Novin Pishevar, joined the practice in the summer of 2022. With his background in interdisciplinary health and dental education from the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Pishevar brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to Featherstone Periodontics and Implant Dentistry. He is committed to delivering comprehensive periodontal and implant dentistry services and enriching the practice's patient-centered care.
Today, the practice boasts a team of five doctors, including Dr. Lindman, Dr. Burch, Dr. Hull, Dr. Andreasen, and Dr. Pishevar. Supported by a dedicated staff of over 40 members, Featherstone Periodontics and Implant Dentistry has performed over 60,000 dental surgeries and successfully placed more than 20,000 dental implants throughout the past three decades. Their unwavering commitment to excellence ensures exceptional care and expertise for their valued patients.
