Dr. Javed Bhojani of Distinctive Dental Care considers himself a student of his craft. He's not content to rest on his laurels, riding on his 25 years of experience and education from Case Western Reserve School of Dentistry. He's working on attaining Master level from the Academy of General Dentistry, which requires advanced training in 16 categories of dentistry. Undertaking 1,100 hours of postgraduate education, Dr. Bhojani has gleaned such advanced techniques as dental implants, one-hour root canals, and laser teeth-whitening treatments.
But Dr. Bhojani knows that even the most educated doctor is only as effective as his tools. That's why he outfits his office with some of the most modern dental equipment. Digital bite-wing and panoramic x-rays reveal issues such as cavities while emitting about 80% less radiation than conventional machines. His CEREC computer crafts ceramic crowns to restore damaged teeth in about one hour, which is much less time-consuming than a traditional tooth-coronation ceremony.
Headed by veteran dental professional Dr. Umar Haque, Oak Brook Smiles keeps teeth in top shape with a suite of advanced treatments delivered in a friendly, comfortable setting. With a mouth exam, teeth get a gentle once over, helping uncover signs of gum disease, tooth decay, and calcium-mining operations backed by microscopic robber barons (a $100 value). A cleaning delicately extricates plaque and tartar from besmirched chompers, leaving smiles gleaming happily under the office lights (a $115 value), and x-rays augment the search for mouth troubles (a $135 value).
At Universal City Dental Center, Dr. Jirair Gasparian and his team perform a variety of procedures intended to protect patients' teeth and gums. Periodic checkups both detect and treat signs of trouble before they become serious complications, but when action is required to correct a problem, the practice offers surgical as well as noninvasive options.
Porcelain crowns and veneers conceal signs of damage, dental implants help fill any gaps, and tooth-colored composite fillings seamlessly replace decay. Additionally, Invisalign straighteners even out smiles, and Rembrandt teeth-whitening products brighten the stains caused by coffee, cigarettes, or a career spent taste-testing food coloring.
Dr. Azad and Associates, strive to accommodate families at Familia Dental, with time slots for working parents on evenings and Saturdays and an indoor play area for youngsters at this preventive and cosmetic practice. Its orthodontics, whitening services, and traditional dentistry finesse the smiles of both kids and adults using technology such as a digital x-ray machine, which releases 80% less radiation than its analog counterparts and 90% less radiation than Spiderman’s big toe.
When he was a boy in the small town of Mount Olive, Illinois, Dr. David J. Rubis dreamed of being a dentist. Doggedly pursuing his goal, he graduated from Northwestern University Dental School in 1978 and opened his own practice. Years later, his son, Dr. Joseph Rubis, followed in his footsteps by joining a growing network of dental-care centers headed by Rubis pére. Now, as the network boasts 30 dentists working at 10 locations throughout Chicagoland, Advanced Family Dental & Orthodontics, PC, continues its founder’s mission to provide the best care for patrons' teeth, gums, and crippling need to collect every color of complimentary toothbrush.
