The son of immigrants Dr. Noreika is native-born American, but is also proud of his heritage, easily converses in Lithuanian, and enjoys travel to Lithuania and beyond.
Always appreciative of the natural beauty of our area Dr. Noreika enjoys his time spent outside. Whether in his yard with his dog Margis, out in the woods or on the water all seasons are enjoyed. In recent years he has cherished the challenge and “therapy” of competitive sailing. As a crewmember of the yacht QuickSilver 33547 he reveled in capturing a first-place finish in the Midwest’s premier race, the Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac 2013—a 333 mile, 2 ½ day dash from Chicago to Mackinac Island, MI!
Dr. Noreika has an easygoing demeanor and feels that open communication is paramount. He believes in the Standard of Care and that an educated patient is a smart patient and therefore able to make the best treatment decisions. Bottom line, Dr. Noreika’s desire is to provide you with the best dental care and to establish you as a happy patient here at Edgewood Dental.
