Sunny yellow walls and a crackling fireplace greet patients at Gentle Dentistry, abating the anxiety classically associated with going to the dentist. Instead of defaulting to a cold and sterile vibe, Dr. Sarita Woodson and her team of dental professionals cultivate a spa-like atmosphere, complete with a play area for children.
In similarly welcoming treatment areas, Dr. Sarita offers preventative and cosmetic dental services for the entire family. Regular exams, x-rays, and cleanings help ward off cavities, and treatments such as mercury-free fillings and Invisalign correct imperfect smiles. For yellowed teeth, Dr. Sarita offers three whitening solutions: prescription-strength Crest Whitestrips, custom-made trays to wear during sleep, or in-office Zoom! treatments that brighten teeth or pearl necklaces by up to eight shades.
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.
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).
The quartet of dental professionals at American Dental Associates, Ltd. unite a skill set that ranges from general oral care to specializations in endodontics and cosmetic dentistry. Each member of the team brings their own unique personality and approach to their profession, though they share a philosophy of patient education and communication. Before undergoing such dental treatments as implants, oral surgery, or teeth whitening, each client works one-on-one with their doctor to devise a treatment plan that addresses their current dental condition and previous life as a shark.
Helmed by seasoned dentist Dr. Mahesh Patel, Family Dental Care of Chicago turns on smile high beams in one hour with Zoom! whitening. During the treatment, patients relax in a reclining chair while a light-activated gel bleaches away stains caused by coffee, red wine, and tonsil Rorschach inkblot tests gone awry. Some patients may be sensitive to the stain-fighting light, but any tingling will dissipate after the procedure. Bathed in bright colors and lush plants, Family Dental Care of Chicago specializes in a cornucopia of dental dealings from routine cleanings to full-mouth reconstruction.
The staff at Family Dentist prides themselves on providing top-notch dental care for patients of all ages. Children and adults can ensure their lasting oral health with exams, and receive cleanings that remove all traces of plaque or evidence of a crayon chewing habit. They can opt for professional whitening treatments to brighten their grins, or address cosmetic issues with devices such as braces, implants, and veneers.
