Dr. Eman A. Shirazi has spent hours upon hours perfecting his ability to effortlessly insert dental implants, a technique he willingly shares with other dentists during lectures. And it is because of his commitment to his craft that he has not only earned the coveted Diplomat of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists title, but also membership into a variety of dental societies across the state and country.
Plus, Dr. Shirazi beautifies smiles with more than just dental implants. He also straightens crooked teeth with clear Invisalign retainers, erases food stains with whitening treatments, and helps teddy bears finally get some rest with sleep-apnea-prevention services.
Under the direction of Dr. David H. Min, the specialists at Crystal Lake Family Dental provide mouth maintenance to clients of all ages. Their caring services aim to prevent problems before they arise, with appointments that polish teeth, head off cavities, and regularly re-inscribe the ruins that keep the tooth fairy at bay. Cosmetic treatments can fine-tune smiles with veneers, implants, and bridges. And new technology, including a device that screens for oral cancer, ensures patients stay healthy.
Dr. Ghassan Abboud believes that if a business is a good member of the community and helps those around it, success will follow—a philosophy he explained during his interview with Naperville Community Television, Channel 17. It was this approach—doing things such as helping people with financing and offering free dental care to those in need on certain days—that allowed Abboud to expand from one 1st Family Dental office in 1996 to 10 offices in the Chicagoland area.
1st Family Dental believes in providing all patients—insured and uninsured—with affordable, high-quality dental care in an appealing setting at the hands of friendly, talented doctors and staff. The practice’s dentists have also helped draw in patients with their multiple awards, their credentials in everything from maxillofacial surgery to orthodontics to prosthodontics, and their refusal to use duct tape to attach crowns. Their cosmetic-dentistry services let clients revamp their smiles with Zoom! whitening treatments and let dental implants replace any missing teeth. The 1st Family Dental experts practice dentistry for the whole family, teaching young ones how to clean their teeth without having to smile while walking through a car wash.
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.
Doctors John Dano and Mary Haupers and their smile-saving staff employ their powers of dental foresight with comprehensive preventative care. The 60-minute preventative session begins with a tartar-tackling cleaning that lets floss shimmy freely through newly polished mouth fences. An initial exam will determine teeth health and tattle-tell on any mouthy misbehavior before x-rays take a peek at your smile’s porcelain skeleton.
Dr. Alma Lombardo believes that a trip to the dentist should be unintimidating and anxiety-free. To accomplish this, she adopts a compassionate attitude with patients of any age and she stocks her practice with cutting-edge medical technology. Digital x-rays give the practitioners a clearer look at a patients’ mouth, televisions in every room help patients relax, and the office’s computerized system allows the staff to keep detailed records without wasting paper or hand-chiseled stone tablets. In addition to the technology, Dr. Lombardo and her practitioners draw on their vast experience to provide comprehensive general as well as cosmetic dental care, preventing the spread of disease and keeping smiles bright.
