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.

Additionally, the dentist maintains his chops with esteemed membership in professional associations including the Chicago Dental Society, the American Dental Association, and the National Academy of Tooth Fairies.
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.
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.
The specialists at Venus De Milo Dentistry work under the guidance of Dr. Reem Obaisi, a dentist with a thorough approach and a knack for cosmetic improvements. The practice’s comprehensive exams include oral cancer screenings and examinations of existing dental work, after which the team corrects issues with procedures ranging from simple plaque removal to endodontic surgery. Treatments such as porcelain veneers or teeth-whitening brighten and straighten smiles, improving the overall appearance.
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.
