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.
With seven locations and 14 dentists, Illinois Dental Center brightens smiles all over the state with a variety of dental services. Using advanced dental technology and years of practical experience, the team helps keep chompers healthy and attractive with teeth whitening and cleaning, fillings, veneers, wisdom-tooth extraction, dental implants, dentures, and crowns. The dentists also specialize in cosmetic services that range from enamel shaping and bonding to gum lifts and bite reclamation.
Drs. Sinha, Frer, and Malik are surgeons who not only renovate smiles but also treat facial trauma, TMJ, and sleep apnea in eight different offices across Chicagoland. Whether they're surgically installing a single crown atop an implant or laying down whole groups of top and bottom chompers, the surgeons commit themselves to safety and attentive care. Though specializing in health-related oral surgery, such as orthognathic surgery to fix misaligned jaws and bone grafting, they also can perform cosmetic facial surgery to sculpt the face or add an extra nose.
The teeth-whitening technicians at Smiling Bright help customers forge whiter smiles with professional-strength in-office and at-home treatments. Cool gray walls and rich, mulberry-toned ceilings envelop Smiling Bright's inviting interior, accented with undulating mirrors, a sleek leather sofa, and private, curtain-drawn treatment rooms. In-office sparkle sessions outfit chompers with a tray preloaded with clinical-strength whitening gel, after which an LED light activates peroxide molecules to coax out stains and nesting yellow finches obscuring the enamel. Smiling Bright's specialty at-home X Cell Erator whitening system comes equipped with the same powerful gel as the in-office treatments, along with a battery-operated whitening light, a list of tips and instructions, and a shade guide to assess how much teeth have improved and whether to ground them from after-school privileges.
People who fear going to the dentist may not feel that way after a visit to Kedzie Dental Clinic. Inside the family-friendly neighborhood office, warm lighting glints off sleek hardwood floors in hallways that lead to inviting treatment rooms. Here, clients lounge in chairs that face large windows, where streaming sunlight warms them and melodious birds warble songs about painless molar implants. The friendly staff echoes the serene vibe of the clinic, personably attending to the needs of clients through services such as extractions, veneers, and bridges.
The mouth doctors at Art of Modern Dentistry's Lincoln Park and South Loop offices hail from some of the top dental institutions in the country and attend to the multitudinous needs of teeth with preventive, restorative, and aesthetic treatments. As patients recline in comfy exam chairs while watching movies flash across flat-screen TVs, dental hygienists evict tartar and temporary tooth tattoos during routine cleanings. X-rays capture images of roots and jawbones that dentists can later glue to their break-room collage, and whitening procedures brighten smiles by removing coffee and tea stains. The team also performs surgical procedures, such as implanting custom-made artificial teeth.
