Meet Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Fornalczyk
Dr. Fornalczyk graduated from Penn State University with a degree in marketing and computer science. He then attended Case Western School of Dental Medicine and opened his private practice in Butler, PA in 1979. His graduating class at Case Western posted the highest QPA and is still yet to be broken. His practice focuses on cosmetic and Lumineer dentistry. Dr. Fornalczyk had the opportunity to study in Las Vegas with the prestigious Dr. Bill Dorfman of The Doctors. He also studied on site at the Lumineer headquarters. He is a trained member of DOCS and performs safe oral conscious sedation. Dr. Bob is gentle and takes time to listen to patients’ concerns and desires. He is a perfectionist in his work and has a fine attention for details. Dr. Bob stays current with the ever-changing advancements in dentistry through many hours of continuing education through hands-on seminars and independent studies.
When Dr. Bob is not helping patients, he enjoys water and snow skiing. During the winter he spends some time on the slopes at Seven Springs. He also likes the adventure of white water rafting. Many of Dr. Bob’s patients would be surprised to know that he is an avid pilot with a commercial rating. Although he has little luck, Dr. Bob enjoys a friendly game of poker. He says he loves the strategy of the game even when he isn’t winning. He also tests his sharpness with a weekly crossword puzzle. Dr. Bob is interested in nature and wildlife. He loves watching the deer and little critters that frequent his heavily wooded back yard. He is entertained by watching them eat, play, and interact with one another. Most of all, Dr. Bob is happy spending time with his close friends and family, and equally satisfied with the delicious desserts that accompany those gatherings.
