Many people think that if they need to get serious work done—a therapeutic massage, microdermabrasion—they have to sacrifice a spa environment for something more clinical. Spa Space defies that notion by offering an extensive menu of results-oriented treatments in a relaxed, sophisticated atmosphere. Their approach has been lauded by many: Lucky magazine called the space "pure bliss," while Allure honored their Pacific Paradise body treatment with one of their coveted Best of Beauty awards.
As one of their signature services, the Pacific Paradise treatment follows with Spa Space's philosophy. Not only is it a 30-minute mango scrub that softens skin and relaxes the body, but it also includes a one-hour massage that reduces tension. Most of their treatments are this way—there's also a pedicure with almond oil to treat dry, itchy skin, and a Sonya Dakar fitness facial with massage to tighten facial muscles. Services are administered with products from brands such as Kiehl's and SkinCeuticals, and clients can arrange to order lunch from Pastoral between services for their hungry bike waiting outside.

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.

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.

ORA Dental Studio's teams also believe that the health of individuals is inextricably linked to the health of the planet as a whole, so they embrace eco-friendly practices whenever possible.

Chicago Dental Professionals's team of dentists and hygienists scours teeth for signs of decay and fortifies oral defenses with a comprehensive array of preventive, restorative, and pediatric services. Mouths open wide for routine exams, during which dentists collect evidence that they later draw on to recommend subsequent treatments. X-rays probe enamel to check for improper alignment and reveal growth abnormalities before aesthetic damage occurs. In areas where plaque and tartar have already wreaked havoc, dentists tend to teeth with fillings, dentures, crowns, and other restorative services. Light-activated bleaching treatments replace the bulbs in dimming enamel, and orthodontic treatments correct crowded, crooked, or poorly aligned teeth in mouths young and old.
