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.
Led by the personable Carl Henley, DDS, the staff at Center For Dentistry promotes healthy, beautiful smiles using the latest in preventive and cosmetic technology. Staffers evict plaque and tartar with cleanings, treat periodontal disease, and whiten teeth stained by coffee, red wine, and a steady diet of silt. Patients can while away appointments by watching TV or listening to relaxing music before bouncing back to the outside world armed with smile-ier smiles.
Dr. Pope understands the general anxiety associated with dentistry, so he works closely with his patients to help them understand dental procedures and to make them comfortable. He honed his craft at the University of Illinois at Chicago and now draws on that knowledge while performing general, cosmetic, and surgical dental services. As a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, he also gives back by offering benefits to his fellow veterans. Besides employing the latest technology to foster pain-free treatments, he offers nitrous oxide sedation, which keeps patients in a conscious but deeply relaxed state.
A full service tanning salon with UV tanning, spray tanning, with redlight therapy sauna sessions, and site-specific body wraps that tighten, tone and firm, TanExpress Naperville helps transform and energize tired bodies through the catalyzing effect of far-infrared heat waves.

TanExpress Naperville also darkens delicate skin tones with speedy and modern tanning services, available ? la carte or through monthly packages.
Operating under the umbrella of Chicagoland Smile Group, the staff at both Olympia Fields Dental Associates and Oak Park Dental Group work to keep smiles healthy and bright. Although both dental teams are adept at general dentistry, helping patients maintain glittering smiles without using actual glitter, they also hold specialists among their ranks. These specialists have skills in oral surgery and extractions, as well as dental implants that can sometimes be made in just one day.
Both practices also strive to stay ahead of the curve in treatment technology. At Olympia Fields, high-powered microscopes and other tools give restorations a precise and comfortable fit, while at Oak Park, 3-D x-rays give dentists a better view of the entire mouth.
When not training for the Chicago Marathon, Drs. Neeta F. Bhushan and Bahareh Sabzehei draw upon their focused energy and resourcefulness to meet the cosmetic, dental, and orthodontic needs of visitors to Lisle Dental Center. Dr. Bhushan, along with being a published author and frequent student, holds a membership in the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and has received extensive training focused on teaching dentists the techniques of Botox injections. She and Dr. Sabzehei work in tandem to captain a staff that's fluent in Spanish as they educate clients on the necessary steps needed to maintain a healthy smile and smooth pie crust. To minimize patient stress, the doctors outfit each treatment room with personal flat-screen TVs and digital sound systems. Contemporary black furnishings pop against mint-green walls, which colorfully mirror the dental practice's green and paperless habits.
