The offices of Grand Dental Group dazzle smiles with cosmetic and general dentistry performed by an experienced and upbeat staff that includes Dr. Mark Kaschube, who practices at the Channahon office and moonlights as a professional magician, and music-loving Dr. Steve Napier. During the comprehensive dental exam, a tooth technician inspects enamel and gums, deftly maneuvering sterile instruments to detect signs of cavities, gum disease, and molar mutiny. A technician then captures candid snapshots of canoodling incisors and bicuspids with bitewing x-rays, which help the skilled staff pinpoint subsurface decay and root out deep-seated signs of gum disease. Enamel illuminates after a dental detailer scours chompers with a comprehensive cleaning to purge plaque.
With nearly 20 years of experience in general dentistry, Dr. Kavita Gupta creates stunning smiles with comprehensive dental exams, x-rays, and cleaning. During the thorough exam, Dr. Gupta gently inspects oral interiors, using precision instruments to poke around for signs of cavities, gum disease, or vestigial extra tongues. Digital bitewing x-rays uncover lurking decay and irregularities with reduced radiation, and a refreshing cleaning purges plaque and banishes bacteria. To help ensure sterile cleansing, Dr. Gupta's practice employs a closed water system, which minimizes the presence of germs and off-course battleships. The modernistic dental office is adjacent to Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, which offers complimentary valet parking for patients. Dr. Gupta imparts dental advice and incisor serenades in both English and Hindi.
For nearly 15 years, Dr. Yeoh Koh has been putting patients at ease with her down-to-earth, personable approach to dentistry. She leads an equally compassionate team at Purely Smiles, where they revamp grins with general cleanings, restorative treatments, or cosmetic services such as teeth whitening and Six Month Smiles’ invisible braces. Advanced dental technology plays a vital part in all of their treatments. Depending on the procedure, they may use intraoral cameras, state-of-the-art cancer screening equipment, or digital x-rays that use lower levels of radiation, reducing the risk of patients turning into radioactive super villains.
Sunny yellow walls and a crackling fireplace greet patients at Gentle Dentistry, abating the anxiety classically associated with going to the dentist. Instead of defaulting to a cold and sterile vibe, Dr. Sarita Woodson and her team of dental professionals cultivate a spa-like atmosphere, complete with a play area for children.
In similarly welcoming treatment areas, Dr. Sarita offers preventative and cosmetic dental services for the entire family. Regular exams, x-rays, and cleanings help ward off cavities, and treatments such as mercury-free fillings and Invisalign correct imperfect smiles. For yellowed teeth, Dr. Sarita offers three whitening solutions: prescription-strength Crest Whitestrips, custom-made trays to wear during sleep, or in-office Zoom! treatments that brighten teeth or pearl necklaces by up to eight shades.
The dentists at Dental Magic aren't just highly trained professionals. They also exhibit a genuine compassion for their patients and the community at large. Through their community-outreach program, they donate services to disabled, medically compromised, or elderly people who are unable to afford extensive dental care. They have also sponsored a medical mission to Sierra Leone and regularly tour local schools to teach useful oral-hygiene skills, such as how to brush properly or weave a spare gym uniform out of floss.
In his profile, Dr. Aaron Appell says that his "favorite part of being a dentist is taking a fearful patient and alleviating all of their fears of dentistry." To that end, he and the two other doctors work to build long-term relationships with their clients, carefully customizing treatments according to their specialties. Michael Wurbel, DDS, has extensive training in the surgical placement and restoration of dental implants, and Ashwini Joshi, MDS, DDS, specializes in orthodontics. Her research on the topic of mandibular growth made her the 2012 recipient of the American Association of Orthodontists' prestigious Milo Hellman Research Award.
Drs. Sinha, Frer, and Malik are surgeons who not only renovate smiles but also treat facial trauma, TMJ, and sleep apnea in eight different offices across Chicagoland. Whether they're surgically installing a single crown atop an implant or laying down whole groups of top and bottom chompers, the surgeons commit themselves to safety and attentive care. Though specializing in health-related oral surgery, such as orthognathic surgery to fix misaligned jaws and bone grafting, they also can perform cosmetic facial surgery to sculpt the face or add an extra nose.
