Dr. Kalpana Doshi has helped to treat pain from multiple angles. As a board-certified anesthesiologist, she relied on Western medicine to ease patients’ suffering, but she also recognized the role that alternative therapies can play in restoring emotional and spiritual balance. Her understanding of both sides of health care enables her to treat a range of ailments, from depression and hypertension to back pain and carpal-tunnel syndrome. Her primary holistic therapy is acupuncture, which aims to redirect the flow of energy through the body. To further help clients achieve a sense of whole-body well-being, Munster Medical Acupuncture also offers yoga classes, massage therapy, and nutritional guidance.

The periodontal professionals at University Dental Associates enhance the appearance and health of smiles with preventative and cosmetic services performed at offices across the Chicago area. An initial oral examination thoroughly inspects the neck and mouth for signs of oral cancer, while laser detection shines a spotlight on hard-to-see cavities. The dentist employs all-seeing panoramic x-rays to spot growth abnormalities nestled below the gums and can use these images to create a personal treatment plan or to curate a modern-art exhibit. Plaque and tartar flee the scene as dental instruments remove buildup and polish teeth during a customized cleaning, which targets each client's specific dental needs.
"Fresh-baked cookies" and "arcade" aren't words typically associated with orthodontic care, but iDentity Orthodontics is an exception. While treatment rooms house 3D imaging and smile-straightening technologies, the Grayslake waiting room is stocked with fresh-brewed coffee and piping hot wifi signals, as well as arcade games and fresh-baked treats. And if these amenities aren't enough to put patients at ease, the knowledgeable care bestowed by Dr. Michael Stosich does. A board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Stosich doubles as a dental author and lecturer, and guides a skilled staff of capable tooth caretakers.
Dr. Elizabeth Reiser-Loeber leads the tooth-savvy team at Orland Smiles in a mission to clean teeth and promote oral health above and below the gum line. To kick off the roughly 30-minute visit, dental assistant Starlette helps the patient settle into a chair and select his or her entertainment from an array of magazines, DVDs, or invisibly caged mimes. Orland Smiles' hygienist Krystyna then polishes chompers to a gleam, eradicates tartar build-up, and administers two bitewing x-rays, before Dr. Reiser begins the oral exam. The dental doyen wields the DIAGNOdent laser to detect hidden cavities and stashes of walnuts.

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 more than 10 years of cosmetic and general dentistry experience, as well as a passion for ongoing training, Dr. Curt Ringhofer has turned his Orland Park office into a one-stop dental shop for most patients, who hardly ever require referrals for complicated procedures.

They also help relax patients and banish pain from services with sedation dentistry.
