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.
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. In addition to preventive treatments such as regular cleanings, Dr. Ringhofer and his team of hygienists revamp smiles with veneers and implants, and provide dental readjustment for TMJ. They also help relax patients and banish pain from services with sedation dentistry.
This club of cuspid conservation provides a full spread of smile straightening services, specializing in cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening, and customized implants. Patients sit back as Dr. Jirair Gasparin checks mouths for cavities before cleaning crevices of plaque, popcorn kernels, and crayons. Food chewers tinted by coffee, tobacco, or Play-Doh reset contrast settings with an in-chair Rembrandt whitening. This one-visit procedure takes an hour and can last up to two years, giving you up to two years of dazzling smiles and blinding bites.
Patients at Orland Dental Care feast their eyes on TVs with Netflix access as their teeth soak up the attention of expert staff and highly trained doctors. A spectrum of services spruces up chompers as technicians use LED whitening to reduce discoloration or take impressions of teeth for Invisalign molds. In addition to cosmetic dentistry, Orland Dental Care also soothes toothaches and seals cavities to keep mouths strong before county swearing bees.
At Artistic Dentistry, Drs. Joel Akroush and Harry Oryhon anchor their general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry procedures to advanced technology, operating in an all-digital, paperless environment. Dr. Akroush—winner of the Nobel Biocare Platinum Award for dedication to implant dentistry in 2001—graduated from Loyola University's School of Dentistry in 1992, and Dr. Oryhon—an Invisalign-certified provider—graduated from the University of Illinois's College of Dentistry in 1972, the same year auto mechanics quit performing root canals. The knowledgeable duo assesses and fosters oral health with digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, electric dental tools, a Zoom! WhiteSpeed device, and a computer system that produces simulated images of patients' smiles postprocedure. Their Identafi 3000 device screens for oral cancer with light wavelengths, and their Picasso Diode laser can help zap away oral lesions and sensitive roots. Open treatment rooms house chair-side computers for staff and TVs and a collection of DVDs for patients.
From a waiting room furnished with a flat-screen TV, a saltwater fish tank, and a kids' play area to a dental staff that's both experienced and comforting, Dr. Thomas J. Dunn and his team have made every effort to make their patients' appointments enjoyable. At his practice, Dr. Dunn ensures that every smile he encounters emerges gleaming and healthy by performing state-of-the-art dental care in addition to specialty services, such as teeth whitening, Invisalign, and implants. He also knows that many of his patients lead busy lives, which is why he offers evening hours twice a week and stays open on Saturday.
