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.
Stains, discoloration, and yellowing fade from careworn chompers during in-office LumiBrite and Zoom! treatments, brightening smiles up to seven or eight shades. To kick off one of three Zoom! sessions, a technician applies a layer of whitening gel to exposed grins, then shines a specially designed UV light to kick through residues of coffee, tea, and invisible ink. In a 30-minute LumiBrite session, a 35% hydrogen peroxide solution forms oxygen bubbles to scrub teeth’s microscopic pores, foaming away stains in a 30-minute session under a sapphire plasma arc light. Both treatments are overseen by Lincolnway Dental Center’s Dr. Young Kim, a 20-year veteran of anticavity combat, and several highly experienced ceiling lights.
Scott Morris DDS & Associates preserves chomper health with a fusion of time-tested dental training and the advantages of whiz-bang technology. Each 75-minute visit commences with a comprehensive examination, as technicians snoop around incisors and comb through oral histories in search of cavities, oral cancers, or jawbreakers masquerading as molars. After dotting eyeteeth and crossing tusks, technicians snap intra-oral pictures of ivories with environmentally friendly digital x-ray technology, detailing tooth health while reducing patient exposure to radiation. Finally, a hygienist painstakingly cleans teeth in a whirlwind of flossing and polishing, banishing plaque and bacteria back to their cruddy stomping grounds.
When he was a boy in the small town of Mount Olive, Illinois, Dr. David J. Rubis dreamed of being a dentist. Doggedly pursuing his goal, he graduated from Northwestern University Dental School in 1978 and opened his own practice. Years later, his son, Dr. Joseph Rubis, followed in his footsteps by joining a growing network of dental-care centers headed by Rubis pére. Now, as the network boasts 30 dentists working at 10 locations throughout Chicagoland, Advanced Family Dental & Orthodontics, PC, continues its founder’s mission to provide the best care for patrons' teeth, gums, and crippling need to collect every color of complimentary toothbrush.
With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-healthcare professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack. A skilled doctor and staff will skillfully probe forgotten mouth corners, eradicating tartar and expunging plaque from bacterial lairs. The included x-rays will help uncover any oral problem areas that cannot be seen with the shamelessly naked eye. After treatment, clients will be privy to tips that explain the proper brushing and flossing techniques to ward off gum disease and tooth loss, ensuring tongue-stoppers remain firmly rooted to the rest of the skeletal system.
Sunrise Dental Care's dentist, Dr. Vesna Sutter, DDS, and hygienists use cutting-edge equipment and attend lectures and conventions to stay well-versed in their rapidly advancing field. A thorough cleaning leaves comely chompers in peak aesthetic shape and performance capacity, allowing patients to gnaw through rock-hard lollipops or federally regulated tracking bracelets. Each office contains a flat-screen TV so patients can watch their meticulous exams, which include oral-cancer screenings, inspections of previous dental work, and assessments of tooth and gum condition. A full set of x-rays helps reveal hidden decay, developmental irregularities, and valuable candy deposits. Sunrise's cheery facilities bask atop pleasantly manicured lawns, leaving patients relaxed in the careful hands of qualified American Dental Association-certified cuspid coddlers.
