Dr. Skleba did his undergraduate studies at Northwestern University, graduating in 1980 with a degree in Biology. In 1984 he earned his DDS degree from Loyola University graduating 2nd in his class and earning the title of Salutatorian. After graduation he served one year as a hospital dental resident and received a General Practice Residency certificate from Illinois Masonic Hospital. Dr. Skleba spent the next 10 years on teaching staff at Illinois Masonic Hospital working with graduate students in the Dental Residency Program and practicing handicapped dentistry with the Special Patient Care Program at the hospital. This experience included regular visits to the hospital operating room for more advanced cases done under general anesthesia. Between 1985 and 1989 Dr. Skleba was also an associate in private practice in Skokie, IL.
In 1988 Dr. Skleba formed a partnership in Cary, IL, known today as Cary Dental Associates, LLC. The practice changed locations in 2001 but has remained in Cary since its inception.
Dr. Skleba has been a volunteer for the ADA Give Kids a Smile program as well the Donated Dental Services charity that provides care for the handicapped and elderly. Dr. Skleba was part of the Mission of Mercy volunteer medical and dental team in New Orleans that provided badly needed care to over 800 patients in one day. He also donates services to victims of domestic violence through the Give Back A Smile foundation, a charitable arm of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

In 2018 at the Convocation of the Academy of General Dentistry in New Orleans, Dr. Skleba was awarded Fellowship in the Academy. This is an honor earned by only 6% of the dentists in the United States. An accumulation of more than 500 hours of continuing education and the passing of a rigorous four hour examination on clinical dentistry are some of the requirements required to earn this title.
