Meet Peter Barysenka DDS, MS

“I have a great love and passion for what I am allowed to do every day — partnering with patients to improve their smile and confidence through the art and science of orthodontics.”

Dr. Barysenka is originally from Belarus and moved to the United States at the age of 23. He completed dental school at the University of California, Los Angeles– one of the best and most competitive programs in the U.S.–and finished his orthodontic residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

He settled in the Midwest after meeting his wife in Chicago during residency. After practicing in Chicago for 4 years, he recently moved to Sycamore in April of 2019 and is excited to be a part of the community. Dr. Barysenka and his wife, Sarah Duchaj, are new parents to their daughter, Emma, who was born in February 2020. She already has a best friend — the family’s Rottweiler, Sophia.

Dr. Barysenka’s hobbies include traveling, working out, horseback riding, fishing, cooking, trying new restaurants, watching all forms of theater and film and spending quality time with his family.
