Mike was one of the nephews that would assist his uncle, a Pipefitter, with various projects and repairs. He chose the field of Dentistry because it combined science, problem solving and working with your hands.

Beyond Dentistry, Dr. Patricoski has many interests in exploring and participating in the Great Outdoors. Since childhood, he has enjoyed hunting, fishing, trapping and shooting. At home, he is an avid gardener and beekeeper.

Currently, he serves on the Board of Directors of the Will South Cook Soil and Water Conservation District.
