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.
With more than 25 years of experience, Dr. Brian Evans expertly leads his staff in improving smiles with everything from comprehensive exams and cleanings to whitening treatments and crowns. But it's not all about teeth. The staff also fosters a better night's sleep without the noisy flock of sheep by outfitting patients with sleep apnea appliances. In addition to helping patients at Stratford Dental, Dr. Evans travels to locales such as Sierra Leone, Ecuador, and Brazil to provide dental care and training.
By stunting tooth decay, preventing gingivitis, and restoring mouth bones to their native tones, the dentists at Dental Salon have collected a trophy case?s worth of awards and endorsements. Visitors to the Chicago Reader?s website voted the center Best Dentist in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. And, since 2009, the office has thrice earned the title of Premier Provider from Invisalign, an alternative to traditional orthodontia that straightens teeth with a series of invisible, custom-fit trays. Patients can speed through dental chores and paperwork thanks to the office's crew of 25 dental assistants and cheetah receptionist.
Before Dr. Acierno came into the picture, Tracy Jones had little to laugh or smile about. In her testimonial on the doctor?s site, Tracy explains that when she was born, she was exposed to a medicine that stained her enamel. So in her adolescence, it got to the point where she no longer smiled, or if she did, she covered her teeth with her hand. After multiple visits to Dr. Acierno, her smile and confidence had transformed, and the looks that once chipped away at her self-esteem have turned into compliments that boost it.
Many patients at Acierno Dental have a similar story to share. And in addition to improving smiles with teeth whitening, Invisalign braces, and restorations, the staff also treat bad breath, maintain tooth health, and prevent disease. During visits, Acierno Dental?s resident dentist, Dr. Alan Acierno, screens for oral cancer and gum disease with a thorough exam and x-ray screening, and then recommends treatments ranging from general cleanings to other preventative and cosmetic services, ensuring comprehensive oral health.
The dentists at North Aurora Dental Associates—Drs. Melissa Ledwidge, Ingy Nessim, and Irbad Chowdhury—unite around a simple philosophy: there's no quick replacement for preventive dental care. It's simply a lifelong process, one they facilitate with rigorous exams and oral cancer screenings. The dentists assist with any maladies preventative care fails to prevent, too. They tackle rogue cavities, for instance, with cutting-edge air abrasion so non-invasive, it rarely requires an anesthetic shot or a distracting Magic Eye puzzle. Meanwhile, they conquer deeper-seated decay with root canals, and their nightguards protect against unconscious teeth grinding. The dentists tend to the aesthetics of smiles, too, with cosmetic treatments such as light-activated Zoom! whitening.
