History of Highland Park Endodontics, LTD.

Highland Park Endodontics, Ltd. was started in 1969 by Dr. Robert Zelikow and Dr. Myron (Mike) Chubin.  Their original office was located at 480 Elm Place in Highland Park.

Dr. Frank Woolman joined the practice in 1977 and became a partner in 1978.  In 1980, they opened a second office in Chicago at 2320 W. Peterson Avenue.

In 1984 Drs. Zelikow and Woolman purchased the Highland Park office from Dr. Chubin.  Dr. Chubin in turn became the sole owner of the Peterson office thus leaving the Highland Park office to Drs. Zelikow and Woolman.
