Dr. Leslie B. Wardell

He left his cowboy boots behind when he left for the big city and fell in love with Chicago where he spent 2 years doing church service. It was there in the Midwest that he met his wife, Joan, a native of the western suburbs.
His education took him back west where he attended Brigham Young University. However, he missed the Midwest, so he and his young family moved back to Illinois where he graduated from the University of Ill at Chicago.
Dr. Wardell continued on with his education at Loyola University School of Dentistry where in graduated in 1989.
