Dr. Michael DeGould
See Well inventor and entrepreneur, is first and foremost an accomplished, board-certified oral surgeon who practices in northwest Illinois. He graduated with honor from Northwestern University Dental School and then completed a four-year oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at Case Western Reserve University Hospitals of Cleveland. He also spent two months at St. Richard’s Hospital in Chichester, UK, for plastic and reconstructive surgery.
The See Well product was invented out of frustration when Dr. DeGould was fine-tuning his distinctive method of surgery.
“There was just not enough room to see well and work efficiently when doing certain procedures,” he maintained. “I knew we could do better. I wanted a suction and retraction device in one, and when I couldn’t find one on the market, I made one. Why use two when one will do? I am confident the See Well instrument will make your job easier. It did mine!”
