Family man. Dentist. Committed community member. Valparaiso resident, Dr. Robert Behrend takes tremendous pride in both his work and his hometown. Behrend grew up in Valparaiso where his Dad was a physician and several of his neighbors were dentists. This had a profound impact on him deciding to study dentistry. With this career choice, he believed he could achieve an ideal balance between work and family life.
“I wanted more free time with my children and dentistry offers you a lot of choices,” says Behrend. “It’s a wonderful career.”
After graduating from Valparaiso High School, Behrend moved to Bloomington to begin his undergraduate career at Indiana University.
