Emily Wible loves watching the transformation of her patients and the joy a new smile brings.

In her spare time, Wible enjoys spending time with family and friends. She also likes baking, exploring new restaurants, hiking, and traveling. Her favorite hike to date has been climbing a Fourteener in Colorado.

Dr. Tonya Volk

Tonya Volk dreams to put smiles on her patients’ faces and make a real difference in the community.

Volk attended dental school at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry. She then completed a residency program at the University of Illinois at Chicago where she received her Master of Science degree in Oral Sciences and her Certificate of Orthodontics. After graduation, Volk was invited to teach as a clinical instructor at the University of Illinois at Chicago Orthodontic Department.

Rutger Stache
Dr. Rutger Stache

Dr. Stache is a lifelong Illinois resident. He graduated high school from Wheaton North and completed his undergraduate studies, dental school, and a 3-year orthodontics specialty program at the University of Illinois at Chicago. During his residency training, Dr. Stache’s research focused on treating patients with obstructive sleep apnea using an oral appliance, and he has presented at numerous professional conferences throughout the country. Most recently, he was the recipient of the AAO Thomas M. Graber award for his thesis project.

He currently lives in Glen Ellyn with his wife Dr. Laurie Susarchick-Stache (also an orthodontist), and their black lab, Zeke! Outside of the office, Dr. Stache can usually be spotted running or biking on the lakefront path. He is currently training for the Berlin Marathon. He is a diehard Chicago sports fan, and thinks there is no better way to spend a summer day (or night) than at Wrigley field cheering on the Cubs.

“My daughter just completed her treatment there. We couldn’t be any happier with the results. Dr. Hurley and staff were professional, courteous, and always had a genuine interest in my daughters treatment and social life! Before I became a dental hygienist I was an orthodontic assistant for eight years. I was very impressed with the way the office was run. The office was always clean and great detail was put into how efficient practice is run. The waiting room was more than just welcoming. It’s spacious, has complementary water and coffee, and several iPads to keep the little ones occupied. I definitely would recommend Dr. Hurley/Smile Doctors to friends and family for any orthodontic treatment!”

“If anyone is looking for an amazing Orthodontist… Hurley and Volk are hands down the best! Not only do amazing work (our daughters teeth look fabulous!), the doctors and staff are awesome! They are great with kids and make getting/having braces so fun with their incentives and contests. If you or your kids need braces… Definitely check them out! If my other kids need braces, we will definitely be returning and I would highly recommend them to family and friends!”
