Drs. Xhelo Shuaipaj and Mazar Shuaipaj are lifelong students of dentistry. Although they are already accomplished doctors of dental surgery with a combined 38 years of experience, they bolster their abilities by keeping up with the latest advancements in the field. Dr. Xhelo also frequently plays the role of educator, distributing his expansive orthodontic know-how through articles, training sessions for other dentists, and announcements by the town crier. Together, Dr. Xhelo and Dr. Mazar also lend their tooth-tending hands to Donated Dental Services, providing essential dental care to the economically and medically disadvantaged. This expansive knowledge is shared with patients at Elite Dental Care, where the skilled staff treats the entire spectrum of dental needs. Whether they are in need of a basic cleaning, a cosmetic procedure, or an Invisalign treatment, patrons who visit one of the practice's two locations can confidently open wide, knowing they're in the hands of experienced professionals.
The dentistry expertise at Provenzale Dental spans more than 30 years and two generations, with the father-and-son team of Drs. Donald Provenzale and Donald Provenzale Jr. working to fortify mouths against decay. With an ever-expanding repertoire of restorative techniques, including implants, natural-looking resin fillings, and porcelain crowns, they transform dental crags into pearly façades. Their comprehensive approach to dental well-being also includes noninvasive cosmetic procedures as well as round-the-clock emergency care for late-night chipped teeth or victims of rogue tooth fairies.
The periodontal professionals at University Dental Associates enhance the appearance and health of smiles with preventative and cosmetic services performed at offices across the Chicago area. An initial oral examination thoroughly inspects the neck and mouth for signs of oral cancer, while laser detection shines a spotlight on hard-to-see cavities. The dentist employs all-seeing panoramic x-rays to spot growth abnormalities nestled below the gums and can use these images to create a personal treatment plan or to curate a modern-art exhibit. Plaque and tartar flee the scene as dental instruments remove buildup and polish teeth during a customized cleaning, which targets each client's specific dental needs.
Operating under the umbrella of Chicagoland Smile Group, the staff at both Olympia Fields Dental Associates and Oak Park Dental Group work to keep smiles healthy and bright. Although both dental teams are adept at general dentistry, helping patients maintain glittering smiles without using actual glitter, they also hold specialists among their ranks. These specialists have skills in oral surgery and extractions, as well as dental implants that can sometimes be made in just one day.
Both practices also strive to stay ahead of the curve in treatment technology. At Olympia Fields, high-powered microscopes and other tools give restorations a precise and comfortable fit, while at Oak Park, 3-D x-rays give dentists a better view of the entire mouth.
When not training for the Chicago Marathon, Drs. Neeta F. Bhushan and Bahareh Sabzehei draw upon their focused energy and resourcefulness to meet the cosmetic, dental, and orthodontic needs of visitors to Lisle Dental Center. Dr. Bhushan, along with being a published author and frequent student, holds a membership in the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and has received extensive training focused on teaching dentists the techniques of Botox injections. She and Dr. Sabzehei work in tandem to captain a staff that's fluent in Spanish as they educate clients on the necessary steps needed to maintain a healthy smile and smooth pie crust. To minimize patient stress, the doctors outfit each treatment room with personal flat-screen TVs and digital sound systems. Contemporary black furnishings pop against mint-green walls, which colorfully mirror the dental practice's green and paperless habits.
The exams at Advanced Lisle Dental begin with experts assessing the patient's mouth health: how much tartar and tooth decay the patient has, and whether x-rays show hidden dangers such as misaligned wisdom teeth. After that it's time for a cleaning to remove built-up plaque. Finally, if patients choose, comes the in-office teeth whitening. The Zoom! whitening system brightens teeth a number of shades, lifting away the stains that result from drinking coffee or licking paintings of wine.
