Double Jeopardy | Dente Complete Dentistry

Double Jeopardy

When I first met Colby Burnett in 2009, he was a recent graduate and began his career as a teacher when I first met him.

In 2011 Colby tried out for the Jeopardy Game Show.

After a pretty rigid screening process, Colby was asked to be a part of the Jeopardy Teachers Tournament in November 2012.

Colby was the Champion of the Teachers Tournament for that year.

He then was asked to do the Tournament of Champions for 2013.

And guess what…HE WON THAT TOO.

Colby was the only contestant that has won the Teacher Tournament and the Tournament of Champions.

But here’s where the story gets really good.

Colby was raised by a single mother in the Austin neighborhood. Colby’s mom was determined to get Colby the best education she could. She worked several jobs to be able to afford the private schools that he attended.

Colby attended Fenwick High School a prestigious private school in Oak Park. Then later attended Northwestern University for college.

Whenever Colby speaks of his mother, his face lights up.

With his winnings, Colby was able to buy his mother a house.

He says that everyone would tell him how great of a son he is. He then responds, “My mom sacrificed everything for me and if I didn’t buy her the house, I’d actually be a bad son.

I saw Colby recently and he said that he told his mom it’s time to retire. She’s been able to earn a Pension from her employer and has been there long enough to cash out. He told his mom, “Mom I’ve been your landlord for the last 10 years and I’ve never charged you rent. I want you to retire. You deserve it.”

In a couple of weeks, Colby’s mom will finally retire.

Colby’s mom raised a very intelligent man who’s reached high levels of success. But her best accomplishment is she raised a great person.

Floss like a madman!

Emilio “Who Is: A Good Son?” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
