The offices of Grand Dental Group dazzle smiles with cosmetic and general dentistry performed by an experienced and upbeat staff that includes Dr. Mark Kaschube, who practices at the Channahon office and moonlights as a professional magician, and music-loving Dr. Steve Napier. During the comprehensive dental exam, a tooth technician inspects enamel and gums, deftly maneuvering sterile instruments to detect signs of cavities, gum disease, and molar mutiny. A technician then captures candid snapshots of canoodling incisors and bicuspids with bitewing x-rays, which help the skilled staff pinpoint subsurface decay and root out deep-seated signs of gum disease. Enamel illuminates after a dental detailer scours chompers with a comprehensive cleaning to purge plaque.
