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.
In 1930, Dr. Joseph Rosin and his brother, Maurice, opened a small shop on Cermak Road in Cicero. In 80 years, the shop has grown from a small family-run optometrist's office to a regionally renowned business that has sharpened the eyesight of celebrities such as Joe DiMaggio and Plácido Domingo and left its mark on the Chicago area by designing famous symbols such as Harry Caray's trademark glasses and the novelty shades that adorn the John Hancock Center. Today, Rosin Eyecare rests in the hands of the third generation of Rosins, ably helmed by brothers James and Jonathan, who continue a proud tradition of warm, personal service as they improve eyesight with high-tech LASIK and PRK treatments as well as stylish eyeglasses with scratch-resistant lenses. At 16 locations, including the newest office Long Grove, a staff of optometrists keeps optical orbs in high function with comprehensive exams, treating each patient's individual needs with products such as a contact-lens implant or a prescription safety eyewear.

Helmed by Dr. Mark Glynn, technicians at SportCo Rehabilitation help to assuage chronic pain with chiropractic exercises and nutritional counseling. Therapists craft each holistic treatment to treat the underlying causes of pain, such as headaches, lower back pain, and sleeping beneath a stampede of horses.
Finding the root of a symptom can be just as complex as finding the solution, which is why licensed chiropractor Dr. Rick Baldenegro of The Chiropractic Place (formerly called Planet Health Chiropractic and Discover Chiropractic) conducts a thorough consultation before constructing personalized treatment plans. These plans use simple yet effective steps to enhance the mind, nerve supply, nutritional quality, and oxygen and lean muscle, while minimizing toxins in the body. Programs can include a digital nerve scan and x-rays to unearth hidden ailments as well as adjustments and massages to relieve pressure and stress on the spinal cord. Once backs are back in working order, clients are provided with at-home exercises and nutritional advice to help them maintain a healthy physique and stop them from looking like a human potato.
When not aligning spines at The Chiropractic Place, Dr. Baldenegro and his team keep busy cracking backs for the Colorado Rapids' soccer team as well as participating in The Chiropractic Place's community programs.
Anu Buzruk learned Hatha yoga at the Sree Swamy Vivekananda Centre of Teacher Education in India, taught the style in India for six years, and then moved to Chicago and completed Lotus Yoga Center’s 200-hour training course. Yet, even with all of her training, she works to continually improve her teaching at Yoganubhav Studio by regularly scheduling feedback sessions with her students and their often neglected mats. Since starting her career, she has taught Hatha yoga to more than 400 students, and she employs their feedback to tailor her classes to their needs. Through this personalization of her classes, many students have reported her Hatha yoga classes have helped to increase their flexibility and alleviate issues such as anxiety, digestive difficulty, and menstrual disorders.
