Life & Hobbies

Dr. Henley was born in Benton, Illinois, and lived there as a young child until moving to Downers Grove. His interest in dentistry dates back to 1962 when, at age 6, a bicycle accident forever changed his smile. The loss of his front teeth and several lengthy visits with his dentist only further planted the seed of his curiosity. Dr. Henley enjoys furthering his education, traveling, and spending time with his wife, children, and two Bengal cats. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing, boating, and living life to its fullest.
