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.
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.
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.
