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.
At Cary Grove Dental, Dr. Gail Pokorny sets the tone by emphasizing the importance of getting to know every patient personally. To that end, and in addition to their technical proficiency, Gail and her team boast one critical skill: the ability to listen to each individual's needs. This attention to detail enables the Cary Grove staff to explain beforehand exactly which treatment is best, and why, rather than having patients search for answers on the Internet or in a maze on the back of a cereal box. The treatments themselves, of course, vary from case to case, and range from cleanings and preventative tactics to cosmetic services and oral surgeries.
The Chicago Center for Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry's Thomas Jackson, DDS applies advanced training mastered at the University of Pennsylvania to help restore smiles through dental implants and crowns. Dental implants begin to fill the void left by missing teeth by replacing the root of the tooth with a titanium screw that unites with the jawbone around it through oseointegration. Once dental implants have been fully adopted by their foster mouths, they stand ready to accept crowns, snap-on dentures, or semipermanent swirly-straws (none of which are included in the first package). The dental-implant and crown package outfits mouths with a natural-looking, porcelain tooth starting with the placement of an abutment. Three to six months after having the implant put in place, patients return to receive their titanium abutment, which serves as a sturdy stage from which the artificial tooth can join other chompers in a smiling chorus. Once in place, the dental implant and crown are designed to look, feel, and function just like original teeth and last for a lifetime with proper care.

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.

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.
