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.
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 friendly oral and facial surgeons at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Chicago wield 10 years of experience to help restore smiles with standalone dental implants and abutments. After a consultation and examination to determine eligibility for treatment, review medical history, and ascertain the patient's likelihood of trying steak-flavored toothpaste, dental experts place the implant into the jawbone with the aid of anesthesia and sedation. The small titanium screw is designed to fuse to the body's existing structure in a process that may require several visits over the course of a few months, followed by the attachment of an abutment. Like a well-programmed robot butler, an implant normally serves its owner for life.
The staff at Smiling Bright believes that there’s one accessory that looks good on everyone: a gleaming, white smile. Luckily, that happens to be the office's specialty. During procedures, trained technicians help clients swathe their smiles with dental trays full of peroxide-based whitening gel, which is then activated by an LED light. Though the solution contains at least 10 percent peroxide, it stays gentle thanks to a vitamin E coating that shields the lips and gums. Stains disappear from the tooth enamel in 20- to 60-minute sessions erasing all evidence of coffee drinking, wine sipping, and newsprint gnawing. Smiling Bright’s retail store also sells professional-quality X Cell Erator systems that can brighten teeth several shades at home.
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.
