Dr. Kapers and the staff at Creating Smiles, PC believe that a visit to the dentist doesn't have to be scary or painful. Their modern dental equipment is less invasive and gentler than the stereotypical tools. Both offices are equipped with digital x-rays that minimize radiation exposure. Intraoral cameras show patients what's going on inside their mouths, and full sedation is an option for patients who don't want to think about having a mouth at all. Dr. Kapers' surgical techniques are also gentler; air abrasion cleans cavities of decaying enamel without the sound and vibration of the drill.
Dr. Kalpana Doshi has helped to treat pain from multiple angles. As a board-certified anesthesiologist, she relied on Western medicine to ease patients’ suffering, but she also recognized the role that alternative therapies can play in restoring emotional and spiritual balance. Her understanding of both sides of health care enables her to treat a range of ailments, from depression and hypertension to back pain and carpal-tunnel syndrome. Her primary holistic therapy is acupuncture, which aims to redirect the flow of energy through the body. To further help clients achieve a sense of whole-body well-being, Munster Medical Acupuncture also offers yoga classes, massage therapy, and nutritional guidance.

The periodontal professionals at University Dental Associates enhance the appearance and health of smiles with preventative and cosmetic services performed at offices across the Chicago area. An initial oral examination thoroughly inspects the neck and mouth for signs of oral cancer, while laser detection shines a spotlight on hard-to-see cavities. The dentist employs all-seeing panoramic x-rays to spot growth abnormalities nestled below the gums and can use these images to create a personal treatment plan or to curate a modern-art exhibit. Plaque and tartar flee the scene as dental instruments remove buildup and polish teeth during a customized cleaning, which targets each client's specific dental needs.
"Fresh-baked cookies" and "arcade" aren't words typically associated with orthodontic care, but iDentity Orthodontics is an exception. While treatment rooms house 3D imaging and smile-straightening technologies, the Grayslake waiting room is stocked with fresh-brewed coffee and piping hot wifi signals, as well as arcade games and fresh-baked treats. And if these amenities aren't enough to put patients at ease, the knowledgeable care bestowed by Dr. Michael Stosich does. A board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Stosich doubles as a dental author and lecturer, and guides a skilled staff of capable tooth caretakers.
Advanced imaging and laser systems map out the mouth’s terrain, probing for potential damage to teeth during dental appointments at Universal Dental Clinics.

Sirona 3-D imaging with Cone Beam technology gives doctors a complete mouth scan in about 15 seconds, allowing them to quickly perform dental diagnostics, and CEREC technology offers fast, single-visit crown restorations.
