Team Dentists for the Rockford Ice Hogs

Dentist in Loves Park, IL 


Riverside Dental Center was founded by Dr. Gerald Donnelli in 1983. As Loves Park & the Rockford, IL metro area have grown, so too has Riverside Dental with 3 dentists and a staff of 28, we are truly a full-service office.

Dr. Aaby

Dr. Aaby grew up in Rockford and graduated from Guilford High School. She received her bachelor’s degree from Western Illinois University and her dental degree from the University of Illinois College of Dentistry. She lives in Rockford with her husband of 24 years and has two sons that are both in college. She enjoys tennis, ballroom dancing, and spending time with her family and friends.

The best part of dentistry for Dr. Aaby is getting to know her patients on a personal basis. Over the past 25 years, we have watched families with young children expand to families with grandchildren. The staff at Riverside Dental feels like family as well, and we think our patients can sense that we all like working together in our hometown.


Dr. David Dimke

Dr. Dimke was born and raised in Rockford. He graduated from Auburn High School in 1997 and returned to Rockford after graduating from Southern Illinois University in 2005.

Dr. Dimke and his wife Jamie live in Rockford with their three children, Andrew, Avery and Henry.  Dr. Dimke spends his rare time off either golfing, or trying not to hurt himself working with heavy machinery. Dr. Dimke has been the Ice Hog’s team dentist since they moved to the AHL and partnered with the Chicago Blackhawks.  Dr. Dimke performs all aspects of dentistry and hopes he can help you and your family feel welcome at Riverside Dental Center.

Otis (our therapy dog)

Otis is a 7 year old black standard poodle. He loves meeting people (especially kids) and works hard at making your visits to Riverside Dental truly enjoyable. He also understands that not everyone likes dogs, so he only visits patients on request. The rest of the time, he is sleeping in Dr. Dimke’s office. Whether you stop by to give him a scratch or throw his ball for him, Otis would love to meet you and your family.


Sully (our therapy dog)
