Meet Dr. John Korolewski (The Dental Health Coach)

added on: November 22, 2019
Dr. John Korolewski

Before he became known as Sheboygan’s dental health coach, Dr. John Korolewski always knew he wanted to help people. He saw how dentistry could change lives by watching his grandfather work at his practice in small-town Wisconsin. He listened intently to stories about how his grandfather impacted lives throughout the community, thanks to relationship-based dentistry. 

Dr. John was born in Milwaukee and raised in Mequon. He went on to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Marquette University School of Dentistry. Dr. John also completed the Advanced Training Program in Dentistry at Meriter Hospital in Madison. He remained a member of the Meriter Hospital teaching staff until 1994.

What is Dental Health Coaching?

Our holistic dental office in Sheboygan is unique in many ways, especially having Dr. John as your Dental Health Coach. Being a coach is defined as “a method of guiding others to address their health and, if need be, make behavioral changes to improve health.”

Think of dental coaching the same way you would regular coaching. Dr. John will help you:

– Set goals

– Identify any obstacles

– Find personal support systems

Dental Health Coaching is sharing and educating what health is and the value in having it. Coaching is never pushy or coercive; it is supportive and uplifting. Coaching is supporting the desire for change and assisting in the goals needed to produce results. Rather than tell you what we think you need to do, we first ask what you want for yourself and why. Rather than focus on your disease, we help you understand what health is and some of its benefits. Rather than push or coerce you into altering your lifestyle, we support your desire for change to get the results you want.

The result is a partnership where you decide what you want, and we make a plan together. Think of a fitness coach. One person’s goals may be to run a marathon; another may be to lose 20 pounds. One person may be experienced at fitness; one may be new to this and require more education. Different people, different goals, different plans. A “one size fits all” approach is not the most effective way for people who want to be healthy to work with their dentist or other healthcare providers.

A Love for Learning

As a trusted Sheboygan holistic dentist, Dr. John believes in providing customized, relationship-based dental care based on wellness and longevity. We want to help teach you about how to create dental health for yourself, not just treating symptoms and problems. The end result is you have more control of your oral and overall health.

It’s safe to say that Dr. John is a lifelong student. You’ll find that he regularly attends continuing education courses every year. He takes a special interest in the treatment of:

– Complex dental issues

– TMJ disorders

– Dental Sleep Apnea

– Mercury Safe Dentistry

– Tooth wear and breakage

– Cosmetic dentistry needs

In 2007, Dr. John completed the curriculum of study at The Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education, generally regarded as one of the premier post-graduate comprehensive dental training experiences in the world. In February 2016, he was among the first to have completed an 18-month curriculum at The Texas Center for Occlusal Studies and Minimally Invasive Dentistry. Dr. John was invited to join the Teaching Staff there as Adjunct Faculty in April 2016.

Dr. John and team also completed one-year coursework in The Dental Practice Management Program at The Schuster Center for Professional Development in 2011. The learning included refinement of our practice vision, mission, and philosophy to serve our patients better. Dr. John was also involved in Schuster Performance Coach, a community of dentists dedicated to the pursuit of the Private Care dental practice, where patients are treated one at a time, rather than on an assembly line. Dr. John has recently become a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine.

Dr. John is an active member of the American Dental Association, The Wisconsin Dental Association, The Sheboygan County Dental Society, The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, and The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.
