Meet Dr. Chad Seubert, oral and maxillofacial surgeon
Thu, Jan 3, 2019
Seubert broke his arm in eighth grade. After being treated by an orthopedic physician and marveling at how his arm healed, Seubert was dazzled by orthopedics and sports medicine. Could he be just like his orthopedic surgeon?
Then he visited his dentist’s office. Everything changed.
“He asked if I ever thought about being a dentist,” Seubert recalls. “At first, I asked ‘Who in their right mind thinks about being a dentist?’ But I shadowed him and thought, ‘I can do that.’”
Fast forward to Seubert’s sophomore year at Marquette University. A visiting oral surgeon’s presentation further inspired Seubert, this time toward a medical career in oral and maxillofacial surgery.
“An oral surgeon came and gave a speech and I knew that’s what I wanted to do,” he says. “It’s a combination of medicine and dentistry.”
Today, while Seubert still admires orthopedics and sports medicine, he isn’t regretting his career track. That includes the surgeries, co-workers and his patients.
“I truly enjoy the people interaction. We see people on probably one of their worst days,” Seubert says. “To be able to talk to them, to put them at ease, to help them with whatever is ailing them is pretty rewarding.”
Seubert has no doubts he chose the right field. His career in oral surgery is everything he hoped it would be, he says. He also appreciates the work-life balance.
“Outside of here, I truly enjoy being a dad. I have three young boys right now,” Seubert says. “Nothing makes me happier than going home and playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with them. Every day, nonstop. It’s right up until they go to bed.”
Dr. Chad Seubert is a surgeon with Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons BayCare Clinic. He sees patients in Green Bay, Manitowoc, and Sturgeon Bay.
