After graduating from dental school, Dr. Zack Zaibak didn’t open up his own office. Instead, he earned his certification in forensic dentistry from the U.S. Navy and completed a residency in advanced dentistry at Loyola Hospital. These experiences foretold a life of constant professional learning; though he now has an award-winning practice of his own, he completes nearly 100 hours of postgraduate training every year. His extensive knowledge has inspired Fox, ABC, WGN and Univision to feature the dentist on consumer-education segments. Dr. Zaibak is also the author of The Hidden Truth Behind Beautiful Smiles, published in 2011. In Dr. Zaibak's office near the Tinley Park Metra station, patients sip complimentary drinks while watching DVDs, listening to CDs, or reciting the alphabet in massage chairs fitted with neck pillows. While they relax, Dr. Zaibak and his highly trained staff make over their smiles with advanced cosmetic treatments, including Invisalign, whitening, and drill-free veneers.

Dr. Michael Egan, a dentist with more than 18 years of experience, works to fill the gaps in grins using the cutting-edge Invisalign system within a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.
