CHICAGO – Dr. Alexander G. Alemis will present his new book True Free Enterprise vs. Socialism & Communism on Sunday, Jan. 13, 2-5 PM, at the National Hellenic Museum, 333 South Halsted St. in Chicago. He will also discuss the downward spiral of the Hellenic Culture and how to reverse it. Tickets for Museum Members: $10, Non-Members: $15, Students: $5.
Dr. Alemis said, “The world as we know it, especially the Western World, is changing, and it’s changing in a way that you might not like. American forefathers borrowed from Athenian Democracy and the ancient Hellenic Spirit which was promulgated throughout the Western World. Will we continue on this path toward free enterprise and democracy or will we revert to something our forefathers fought against?”
He shared his core philosophy, “The political system which exists in a country is what determines the success or failure of that country and its citizens. Responsible democracy in a true free-enterprise system is the best governing system ever developed. It takes what naturally exists in nature and it arranges it in the best possible manner to produce the most possible success and happiness for the people under it.”
Having immigrated to the United States in 1975 from Greece at the age of 16, Dr. Alemis completed high school at Larkin High, in Elgin, IL. He completed his undergraduate work at Judson University, a Baptist-affiliated college in Elgin, where he graduated with honors and was accepted into the University of Illinois College of Dentistry. Upon graduation in 1985, he received The Clinical Excellence Award for Exemplary Clinical Work.
Dr. Alemis has been in practice since 1986 and is the founder of the Family Dental Care Group, one of the largest dental groups in Chicago with over 100 staff and more than 20 doctors. He was honored by the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) with the prestigious Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry FAGD award during its 2015 Annual meeting in San Francisco, CA. The AGD Fellowship Award is presented to dentists who complete more than 500 hours of dental continuing education and pass a comprehensive written exam. Only 5% of General Dentists in the country receive this award. Dr. Alemis’ series of seminars has been presented locally and internationally and he is the author of several books and numerous articles.
Among his many hobbies is photography and one of his photos, Ancient Face of the Acropolis, was featured in The National Herald.
