Dr. Ghassan Abboud believes that if a business is a good member of the community and helps those around it, success will follow—a philosophy he explained during his interview with Naperville Community Television, Channel 17. It was this approach—doing things such as helping people with financing and offering free dental care to those in need on certain days—that allowed Abboud to expand from one 1st Family Dental office in 1996 to 10 offices in the Chicagoland area.
1st Family Dental believes in providing all patients—insured and uninsured—with affordable, high-quality dental care in an appealing setting at the hands of friendly, talented doctors and staff. The practice’s dentists have also helped draw in patients with their multiple awards, their credentials in everything from maxillofacial surgery to orthodontics to prosthodontics, and their refusal to use duct tape to attach crowns. Their cosmetic-dentistry services let clients revamp their smiles with Zoom! whitening treatments and let dental implants replace any missing teeth. The 1st Family Dental experts practice dentistry for the whole family, teaching young ones how to clean their teeth without having to smile while walking through a car wash.

With more than 10 years of experience, Dr. Harj Khaira oversees the technicians at Lake Street Dental as they keep patients' smiles shipshape with a combination of general and cosmetic procedures. In addition to periodic cleanings and examinations, the practice's services include crowns, bridges, and veneers, which aim to hide damaged or discolored teeth more effectively than a camouflage mouthguard. Dr. Khaira performs minor oral surgeries—including root canals and extractions—and, as a certified Invisalign provider, he can help straighten wayward chompers without affixing braces. When he isn't working at his practice or traveling to dental seminars to learn about new technology and techniques, Dr. Khaira dedicates his time to providing professional dental care for charitable organizations.
