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.
Dr. Sonia Moussa opened Clark Dental Care in 1999. Years later, when it came time to expand her practice, she decided to add another location and another Moussa—namely, Dr. Therese Moussa. Today, the duo fosters oral health during general and cosmetic dentistry services including Invisalign regimens, teeth-whitening sessions, and restorative implants. In order to successfully treat as many patients as possible, the doctors speak English, Spanish, and Arabic, which, when spoken all together, sound a lot like Portuguese.
Lincoln Square Dental's expert practitioners assuage stained, dull, or discolored smiles with in-home Pola Night or Pola Day whitening kits and custom mouthpieces. A crisp spearmint flavor and desensitizing agent distract fussy tongues from noticing professional-grade peroxide in Pola gel, whose conditioning ingredients and pH neutrality protect pearly whites as they negotiate tarnish's unconditional surrender. Teeth slide into gel-filled, custom-fitted trays for daily microscrubbing sessions ranging from 30 minutes to overnight depending upon which Pola formula patients use. Each kit includes four plastic syringes, which provide a total of 10 day's worth of whitening treatments.
Before the experienced stylists at Salon 44 Spa cut into coifs, they carefully consider each individual's facial structure, lifestyle, personality, and hair type. The team aims to match clients with their ideal elegant, classic, or trend-driven tresses, whether the process requires just a few snips, a full permanent wave, or dipping bangs in honey. The menu also features antioxidant-infused conditioning, European color and highlights, massages, mani-pedis, and waxing.
Fresh flowers, framed Japanese kanji, and complimentary cups of steaming tea help put clients at ease as soon as they enter Aroma Spa. The massage therapists further relax visitors by having them lie atop heated tables during luxurious sessions lasting up to 105 minutes. They use unscented organic oils and hot towels to accentuate the therapeutic benefits of the signature massage, which primarily employs Swedish techniques in order to gently soothe and rejuvenate muscles across the full body. Other specialized modalities include deep tissue and prenatal.
Outside of massage rooms, aestheticians clarify skin with peptide-rich skincare products and chemical peels. They can also use mineral-laden ash from the most accurately constructed science-fair volcanoes to moisturize and soften skin. The spa's nail technicians prettify digits by adding vibrant coats of OPI, Essie, or no-chip polish.
Dr. Trupti Desai and the entire staff at Polished - A Dental Studio aim to make dental care as stress-free as possible, whether someone comes in for a regular cleaning or full mouth reconstruction. They even let their patients quickly schedule all sorts of visits online via ZocDoc, removing the hassle of calling the office or learning how to telepathically commune with the receptionist. Depending on each person's set of chompers, sessions might be for fillings, crowns, root canals, or sealant applications. Dr. Desai also consults with patients on various cosmetic treatments, including Invisilign treatments and veneers.
The office's location on Belmont Avenue adds more convenience to visits, as it's only a short, five-minute walk to the office from the Southport Brown Line stop. If patients drive, the office is happy to reimburse any parking fees.
