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.
After sustaining an injury at a previous job, state-licensed Doctor of Chiropractic Frank Frydrych came to the field of chiropractic when he found his prescribed physical therapy didn’t live up to its billing. Rather than continue on an unproductive course, he took charge of his own healing. Today, he applies his findings to help others overcome their own medical issues, often faster than with conventional treatments.
Despite the breadth of healing therapies and procedures at his command, the doctor focuses his skills on the principles of biomechanics. During treatments, he investigates clients' deficiencies and imbalances and corrects them through services such as chiropractic manipulations, pain therapy, and acupuncture. Performed alone or within a multifaceted plan for overall health restoration, the procedures can tackle maladies related to musculoskeletal issues, digestive problems, and sports-related injuries.
AV Dental spruces up Chicagoland smiles with its toothsome array of general and cosmetic dental services and in-house denture lab. An investigative exam first checks the chompers for mastication-threatening maladies such as gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer (a $94 value), while a cleaning removes tartar and moves plaque to the proverbial mantel, right next to spelling bee trophy (a $99 value). Diagnostic x-rays round out the visit, with expert eyes scrutinizing every area in search of decay, tumors, cysts, bone loss, and cane-carrying men sporting red- and white-striped attire (a $146 value).
Helmed by a trio of attentive dentists, 34th Street Dental Care makes mouth pearls glow during Kor Whitening treatments. Powered by deep-bleaching technology, the Kor Whitening system blanches enamel more dramatically than a surprise brushing from Hamlet’s ghost. Suitable for patients ages 14 and older, the treatment is gentle on sensitive teeth but powerful enough to dissolve stains from coffee, wine, and medications, making pearly surfaces appear up to 16 shades brighter. After two weeks of bleaching, the dental team completes the treatment with a one-hour inspection and a celebratory conga dance.
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.
