Dr. Kalpana Doshi has helped to treat pain from multiple angles. As a board-certified anesthesiologist, she relied on Western medicine to ease patients’ suffering, but she also recognized the role that alternative therapies can play in restoring emotional and spiritual balance. Her understanding of both sides of health care enables her to treat a range of ailments, from depression and hypertension to back pain and carpal-tunnel syndrome. Her primary holistic therapy is acupuncture, which aims to redirect the flow of energy through the body. To further help clients achieve a sense of whole-body well-being, Munster Medical Acupuncture also offers yoga classes, massage therapy, and nutritional guidance.
Dr. Ryan Molis specializes in Invisalign procedures, which he has performed since 2001, treating enough patients throughout his career to earn him a designation as an elite preferred provider and in the top 1% of all Invisalign providers. His staff at Molis Dental keeps patients smiling with everything from family check-ups to cosmetic laminates, crowns, and veneers.
The periodontal professionals at University Dental Associates enhance the appearance and health of smiles with preventative and cosmetic services performed at offices across the Chicago area. An initial oral examination thoroughly inspects the neck and mouth for signs of oral cancer, while laser detection shines a spotlight on hard-to-see cavities. The dentist employs all-seeing panoramic x-rays to spot growth abnormalities nestled below the gums and can use these images to create a personal treatment plan or to curate a modern-art exhibit. Plaque and tartar flee the scene as dental instruments remove buildup and polish teeth during a customized cleaning, which targets each client's specific dental needs.
Operating under the umbrella of Chicagoland Smile Group, the staff at both Olympia Fields Dental Associates and Oak Park Dental Group work to keep smiles healthy and bright. Although both dental teams are adept at general dentistry, helping patients maintain glittering smiles without using actual glitter, they also hold specialists among their ranks. These specialists have skills in oral surgery and extractions, as well as dental implants that can sometimes be made in just one day.
Both practices also strive to stay ahead of the curve in treatment technology. At Olympia Fields, high-powered microscopes and other tools give restorations a precise and comfortable fit, while at Oak Park, 3-D x-rays give dentists a better view of the entire mouth.
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.
