From the modest office that opened on Clark Street in 1996, 1st Family Dental has blossomed into a ten-office dental group with locations throughout Chicagoland. But success hasn't done anything to change the offices' unique connection with patients; dentists still pride themselves on personal touches. A team of 20 experienced dentists and oral surgeons work among all the locations, whitening smiles, aligning teeth with braces, and polishing away unsightly frowns.
Since his graduation from the University of Illinois College of Dentristy in 2006, I Care Dental's Dr. Samee has made quite the name for himself. He's already been voted one of the top dentists in the area, a distinction that earned him an award in 2012 and a feature in the Chicago Tribune. In addition to performing a wide range of routine and cosmetic dental services—including basic cleanings, teeth-whitening treatments, and veneer applications—he lends his expertise to the Academy of Gp Orthodontics, actively works with the American Dental Association, and proudly holds membership cards and novelty coffee mugs from both the Illinois State Dental Society and the Chicago Dental Society.
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.
Bacteria often hides under the gum line, impossible to reach with a toothbrush, floss, or tiny minecart. That’s why Periodontics & Dental Implant Center uses more advanced techniques and tools to treat gum disease and decay. Certified periodontist Amjad Aldallal, DDS, and his staff practice a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatments, including root planing, dental implants, and osseous surgery. To restore gums, the Periodontics team can also graft tissue onto areas that have been damaged.
Doctors Monika Tyszkowki and Renata Kosiek man the dental chairs at Glamour Dental Care with a relaxed demeanor and gentle approach to general, cosmetic, and orthodontic dentistry. Daily they accomplish teeth whitening and smile restoration with an artist’s eye for beauty and detail, straightening askew grins with traditional or clear braces and filling cavities with tooth-colored composites. They handle root canals with the same precision and also design dental bridges to replace teeth gone AWOL.
