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.
When she set about choosing a career, Dr. Purvi Thakkar knew she wanted one where she could make a difference each day. At Lotus Dental Care, the dentist achieves just that by giving both children and adults dental care that covers the full spectrum of oral health, including general preventative care as well as intricate procedures such as implants and the crafting of bridges without the use of tollbooths. To ensure effectiveness and patient comfort, the dentist employs the latest technology, including digital x-rays that reduce patients’ exposure to radiation and rotary endodontics that expedite root canals while making the process gentler. She also understands that the aesthetic of a person’s smile makes a big difference in his or her life, so Dr. Thakkar carefully carries out cosmetic treatments such as Venus White max teeth whitenings with the same attention to detail she uses for other oral health care.
At Crest Dental, the ever-courteous staff joins forces to cover all the bases of general and cosmetic dentistry. Inside their state-of-the-art, fully digital and paperless office, the Crest Dental team provides basic services, such as digital x-rays and fillings. They also deliver more advanced fix-ups, including dentures, implants, and root canals. Cosmetic dentistry services include revolutionary teeth whitening that can be performed in-office or even provided in take-home trays for added convenience.
The friendly oral and facial surgeons at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Chicago wield 10 years of experience to help restore smiles with standalone dental implants and abutments. After a consultation and examination to determine eligibility for treatment, review medical history, and ascertain the patient's likelihood of trying steak-flavored toothpaste, dental experts place the implant into the jawbone with the aid of anesthesia and sedation. The small titanium screw is designed to fuse to the body's existing structure in a process that may require several visits over the course of a few months, followed by the attachment of an abutment. Like a well-programmed robot butler, an implant normally serves its owner for life.
By stunting tooth decay, preventing gingivitis, and restoring mouth bones to their native tones, the dentists at Dental Salon have collected a trophy case’s worth of awards and endorsements. Visitors to the Chicago Reader’s website voted the center Best Dentist in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. And, since 2009, the office has thrice earned the title of Premier Provider from Invisalign, an alternative to traditional orthodontia that straightens teeth with a series of invisible, custom-fit trays. Patients can speed through dental chores and paperwork thanks to the office's crew of 25 dental assistants and cheetah receptionist.
The dentists at North Aurora Dental Associates—Drs. Melissa Ledwidge, Ingy Nessim, and Irbad Chowdhury—unite around a simple philosophy: there's no quick replacement for preventive dental care. It's simply a lifelong process, one they facilitate with rigorous exams and oral cancer screenings. The dentists assist with any maladies preventative care fails to prevent, too. They tackle rogue cavities, for instance, with cutting-edge air abrasion so non-invasive, it rarely requires an anesthetic shot or a distracting Magic Eye puzzle. Meanwhile, they conquer deeper-seated decay with root canals, and their nightguards protect against unconscious teeth grinding. The dentists tend to the aesthetics of smiles, too, with cosmetic treatments such as light-activated Zoom! whitening.
