Following graduation he joined his father, Dr. Sid Wessol, practicing dentistry in Carlyle. Dr. Patrick’s goal for every patient is overall health and maintenance of the oral dentition. He enjoys making sure patients have all the knowledge they need in order to get to that end goal and enjoys watching them succeed. He treats patients of all ages, and enjoys all aspects of dentistry from restoring teeth to educating patients on preventative care to prevent further dental issues.
If not found in the dental office check a few blocks east down at the river. Dr. Patrick enjoys everything to do with the outdoors, from hunting and fishing to watching birds and gardening. He cannot wait to introduce his son, Oliver, to these outdoor activities!
Dr. Amanda Hoelscher-Wessol, a northwestern Illinois native, attended The University of Illinois and then Southern Illinois University where she received her DMD degree and met her husband Dr Patrick.

It is Dr. Amanda’s goal to use this knowledge and experience to make the patients' visit as comfortable, easy and informative as possible. Overall oral health and wellness is important to her and she takes pride in helping patients achieve that outcome.
Outside of the dental office Dr. Amanda loves to cook and workout but she usually can be found chasing around her young son Oliver and/or the family’s coonhound Lucy!
