Dr. Ghassan Abboud believes that if a business is a good member of the community and helps those around it, success will follow—a philosophy he explained during his interview with Naperville Community Television, Channel 17. It was this approach—doing things such as helping people with financing and offering free dental care to those in need on certain days—that allowed Abboud to expand from one 1st Family Dental office in 1996 to 10 offices in the Chicagoland area.
1st Family Dental believes in providing all patients—insured and uninsured—with affordable, high-quality dental care in an appealing setting at the hands of friendly, talented doctors and staff. The practice’s dentists have also helped draw in patients with their multiple awards, their credentials in everything from maxillofacial surgery to orthodontics to prosthodontics, and their refusal to use duct tape to attach crowns. Their cosmetic-dentistry services let clients revamp their smiles with Zoom! whitening treatments and let dental implants replace any missing teeth. The 1st Family Dental experts practice dentistry for the whole family, teaching young ones how to clean their teeth without having to smile while walking through a car wash.
Dr. Moltz believes in improving patients' self-images by using his carefully honed skills and artistry, which the Academy of General Dentistry recognized with a fellowship. Classes keep his technique sharp, and advances such as digital x-rays, laser dentistry, and intraoral cameras ensure that teeth are treated with the latest tools. FAQs furbish patients with background information so they can enter the office with a wealth of wisdom and know where their mouth is located.
Drs. Thind and Mailapur and the staff at Definite Dental Solutions welcome patients into their office as they would guests to their homes, fostering a warm and relaxed environment. In that environment they practice general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry such as teeth whitening, root canals, and dental implants. As a family dentistry, they treat patients of all ages and educate on proper preventative oral-health maintenance.
Dr. Chris Krueger studied to become a dentist so that he could help patients feel more confident in their oral health as well as their appearance. Alongside his staff at Regency Dental Group, Dr. Krueger uses a combination of digital imaging systems and thorough examinations to check for signs of disease or binary messages hidden inside molars. The dental team then revitalizes smiles with porcelain crowns, teeth-whitening treatments, and other services.
Dr. Maha Blaibel’s cut her teeth in the dental world by treating underprivileged children at the Infant Welfare Society and Boys and Girls Club of Chicago. Now firmly ensconced at RiverWalk Dental, she leads her friendly staff in providing patients of all ages with everything from routine checkups to cosmetic procedures. She corrects imperfections with porcelain crowns, veneers, and both invisible and traditional braces. For teeth discolored by drinking coffee or napping near a tanning bed, Dr. Blaibel uses Zoom!’s light-activated gel to lift stains and increase brightness by up to eight shades.
Though most people don’t like sitting a classroom, Dr. Goel is different. After graduating from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in a mere three years, she went on to study at one of the top programs in the country at Northwestern University Dental School. And though some would be content with simply graduating, Dr. Goel expanded her knowledge by using a dictionary as a pillow and participating in an advanced dental program at Northwestern Hospital.
Today, she strives to keep her practice on the cutting edge of the industry by continuing her education at the Spear Institute and ensuring that her office has the latest in dental technology, including a diode soft-tissue laser, intra-oral cameras, the Six Month Smiles teeth-straightening system, and the Velscope oral-screening system, which assesses a person's overall health in just 1–2 minutes. Other cutting-edge services available at Avid Dental include porcelelain veneers and same-day Cerec restorations and crowns.
