Every smile is its own work of art. That's why Smile and Shine's quartet of dental professionals approaches dental care with the precision of artists surveying a canvas. Of course, it helps that they're aided by only the best tools. That includes veneers, which are bonded to tooth surfaces to mask gaps, cracks, and chips. Their toolkit also include composites and dental implants, which help reshape and replace grins affected by wear or tooth loss. To keep healthy teeth pearly, practitioners break down stains and discoloration with the latest whitening treatments, such as Zoom!. Besides repairing and enhancing smiles, they tend to general dental needs, too. Their expertise extends to cleanings and root canals, as well as fillings. The doctors also know how to keep calendars happy; for convenience, the office offer Saturday appointments and evening hours on Mondays.
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.
Dr. Fedin, a Northwestern University Dental School grad, and his team of smile curators help keep mouths in working order. Dr. Fedin's successful execution of more than 2,000 implant procedures ensures masterful restorative work, with visits made short by a ceramicist who speedily crafts custom bondings, crowns, and Hummel figurines in the in-house lab. The staff's focus on relaxation dentistry eases nagging anxieties, and their courtesy car service delivers patients woozy from medication safely to their doorsteps.
