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.
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.
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.
A laser spa may conjure up images of a stark medical environment, but those would be images in the mind of someone who's never been to Azizta Laser Spa. The interior, which resembles a cozy living room, brims with vintage furniture that hosts exfoliating loofahs and handmade goat's milk soaps. Here, laser services and facial treatments pamper clients looking to rid themselves of unwanted hair or fine lines caused by aging or napping on a sewer grate.
