At Oak Ridge Family Dental, Drs. Victoria Pavletic-Vorderer and Meghan Gaffney combine their years of experience, emphases on preventive care, and up-to-date technology to bolster oral health for the entire family. Before perusing teeth, the dentists first gain thorough understandings of patients by combing through their family histories and discussing the James Bond villains they most relate to. After considering the results of examinations, the doctors help patients devise treatment plans. The staff works to assuage anxious patients with thorough communication and step-by-step explanation of potentially intimidating procedures, such as root-canal therapy, extraction, and the unwrapping of new toothbrushes.
Since his graduation from the University of Illinois College of Dentristy in 2006, I Care Dental's Dr. Samee has made quite the name for himself. He's already been voted one of the top dentists in the area, a distinction that earned him an award in 2012 and a feature in the Chicago Tribune. In addition to performing a wide range of routine and cosmetic dental services—including basic cleanings, teeth-whitening treatments, and veneer applications—he lends his expertise to the Academy of Gp Orthodontics, actively works with the American Dental Association, and proudly holds membership cards and novelty coffee mugs from both the Illinois State Dental Society and the Chicago Dental Society.
AV Dental spruces up Chicagoland smiles with its toothsome array of general and cosmetic dental services and in-house denture lab. An investigative exam first checks the chompers for mastication-threatening maladies such as gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer (a $94 value), while a cleaning removes tartar and moves plaque to the proverbial mantel, right next to spelling bee trophy (a $99 value). Diagnostic x-rays round out the visit, with expert eyes scrutinizing every area in search of decay, tumors, cysts, bone loss, and cane-carrying men sporting red- and white-striped attire (a $146 value).
Elite Brights’ at-home advanced teeth-whitening kit lets users buff molars and blanch incisors without swapping plush recliners for dentist chairs. After a routine tooth brushing, flossing, and fang sharpening, customers apply the kit’s pale-making gel to a plastic whitening tray. They then install the tray securely in the mouth and fit an LED light against the front teeth to activate the gel’s hydrogen peroxide cleaning agent, brightening chompers without harming preexisting dental fixtures, such as permanent harmonicas. The kit comes with enough gel for 2–5 whitening treatments, allowing clients to spread their dental purification over time.
