Local business owner Dr. Rajan Sharma has lived in Oak Brook for more than 20 years and has fallen in love with the area. He and his wife, Mintu Sharma, have three children and a family dog named Harley. Their children, including 26-year-old Radhika, 24-year-old Devika, and 22-year-old Indra, all went to Hinsdale Central High School. Dr. Sharma, founder of EON Clinics, is an alumnus of Case Western Reserve University, School of Dentistry—graduating in 1991 with a certificate and master degree in endodontics. His work at EON fulfills a need he saw for a specialized, state-of-the-art facility devoted solely to dental implants with everything under one roof, from the prosthodontist and oral surgeon to the anesthesiologist and master technician.
1. Great book you read?
Lust for Life by Irving Stone
2. Life-changing moment that continues to impact what you do?
I have had five back surgeries in my lifetime, and my most recent surgery was just a few months ago. I continue to struggle with back pain and disc issues, which is not easy when you own a business. However, it truly continues to make me a stronger person as it has taught me that I need to keep moving forward, no matter what the hurdles I face in life are.
3. Memorable story you told about your childhood?
The most memorable story or event I recall is watching the 1976 Montreal Olympics when Nadia Comaneci received a perfect score of 10 and took home the gold. I still think about that moment, and derive inspiration from that.
4. Act of kindness, either given or received?
I do believe that every act of kindness should be kept to yourself for your own spiritual uplifting. Thus, I am unable to share in this interview.
5. Fantastic meal you enjoyed?
I enjoyed my best meal most recently with my family for Thanksgiving.
