Before Dr. Gibson became a devout dentist and was on the advisory board for the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), she was crowned Mrs. USA for 2005–2006, named a Miss Hawaiian Tropic world finalist (1997), and awarded a slew of other impressive accolades. Dr. Arnold is on the Advisory Board for the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics (ACE). Let Dr. Gibson or Dr. Arnold and their skilled staff of tooth-buffers, who always put patients' needs first, brighten your smile an average of eight shades with a quick, safe Zoom! whitening procedure. Your chompers will be glazed with Zoom!'s proprietary whitening gel before the low-heat Zoom! light activates the gel's stain-busting powers, breaking apart age-old coffee, cigarette, or coffee and cigarette stains. When the treatment is finished (up to four sessions for a total of 60–75 minutes), your teeth will look youthful and naturally clean.
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).
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.
After receiving her aesthetics and massage-therapy licenses, Gloria Bach assembled a crack team of professionals and enlisted the help of Pevonia Botanica and DermaQuest skincare products to devise the well-rounded service arsenal at GT Massage & Skin Care. The in-house massage therapist, whose quest to bolster his prowess brought him to study in destinations as diverse as India and Texas, demonstrates his bodily know-how by easing sore muscles prone to overworking themselves during action-movie marathons. Meanwhile, aestheticians tackle rosacea, acne, and signs of aging with 18 assorted facials, many of which harness microdermabrasion or Purelight LED technology to rescue the face from impurities and dead skin cells.
