Hi, I’m Dr. Jon Szewczyk (pronounced “chef-chick”), the proud co-owner of Hartstone Dental. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Iowa. I continued my education through a general practice residency at the Chicago Veterans Association Hospital where I received advanced training in multiple aspects of dental care including implant therapy, endodontics, and oral surgery. After completing my training, I returned to the Madison area and have been calling it home ever since.
I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to build upon Dr. Brad Hartjes’ (founder of this practice) legacy with such a great team and practice partner alongside me. We have many long-term staff members who have the experience and expertise to help provide you with excellent dental care. This practice subscribes to the golden rule of “treating people the way you would like to be treated” and I promise both myself and my team will always do what is best for you and your family.
Providing my patients with the best experience and optimal treatment are of the highest priority to me. I am committed to staying on the leading edge of the latest proven advancements in dental technology and treatment so I can provide the most up-to-date and best care possible. I participate in many continuing education classes through the Greater Dane Dental Society, Wisconsin Dental Association, and the Chicago Dental Association. I am a member of the Seattle Study Club of Madison, which is a group of local dentists and specialists who discuss the latest techniques for treating different dental issues.
We are a private practice office owned completely by my partner, Dr. Joel, and myself. This style of practice is becoming more and more rare in today’s healthcare/dental landscape. We have no outside influences or shareholders that could affect your dental experience and we are truly committed to providing the best quality and personalized care to our patients.
Dentistry is a rewarding career, but it would get a little dull without appreciating and cultivating the relationships I have with my patients. Everyone has their own unique story and I truly enjoy getting to know my patients beyond their smile. This keeps my life more interesting, but I also believe it allows me to be a better provider who can collaborate with my patients in finding and obtaining their ideal dental experience.
I was born and raised about an hour south of the Madison area in Rockford, Illinois. My wife, Madison and I recently welcomed our first child into the world, Owen. We also have two adorable rabbits named Charlie and Sugar.
When I am not in the office, I enjoy biking and hiking around the area and beyond, eating something delicious from a local farmer’s market or one of the area’s great restaurants, and visiting some of my favorite local spots—Olbrich Botanical Gardens and the Henry Vilas Zoo.
I look forward to meeting you and taking care of your dental needs!
