About Our Guest

Dr. Blake Westra first realized he wanted to become a dentist on a mission trip during college.  He went on to graduate from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine, then moved to a small town in east central Illinois to join a friend in practice thinking it would be a short-term commitment.  His friend ended up moving to Michigan, but Dr. Westra stuck around the area, realizing that he greatly enjoyed working with other people with similar mission and vision.  He has sought to grow his own practice as well as continuing to grow with other dentists and offices, and now has a group of eight offices across IL and IN. As the group of offices has grown so has his family. Dr. Westra is married with four kiddos, and when he is not in the office, he can generally be found at one of the local baseball fields, tumbling gym, piano lessons, pool, soccer fields, etc, etc.

Dr. Tracy Liang recently received her DDS degree from Touro College of Dental Medicine in Hawthorne, New York. She is pursuing postgraduate studies in orthodontics at the University of Minnesota. Having served as the 2019-2020 Student Trustee for CMDA, she is thrilled to be continuing her involvement with CDA by recently joining the Dental Advisory Council.
