Before Dr. Gibson became a devout dentist and was on the advisory board for the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), she was crowned Mrs. USA for 2005–2006, named a Miss Hawaiian Tropic world finalist (1997), and awarded a slew of other impressive accolades. Dr. Arnold is on the Advisory Board for the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics (ACE). Let Dr. Gibson or Dr. Arnold and their skilled staff of tooth-buffers, who always put patients' needs first, brighten your smile an average of eight shades with a quick, safe Zoom! whitening procedure. Your chompers will be glazed with Zoom!'s proprietary whitening gel before the low-heat Zoom! light activates the gel's stain-busting powers, breaking apart age-old coffee, cigarette, or coffee and cigarette stains. When the treatment is finished (up to four sessions for a total of 60–75 minutes), your teeth will look youthful and naturally clean.
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.
With a history stretching back nearly 30 years, Tan City of Valpo prides itself on its well-trained team.

Besides imbuing skin with golden hues, they also provide teeth whitening, using their own Maxx White system.
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.
Dr. Ryan Molis specializes in Invisalign procedures, which he has performed since 2001, treating enough patients throughout his career to earn him a designation as an elite preferred provider and in the top 1% of all Invisalign providers.

Operating under the umbrella of Chicagoland Smile Group, the staff at both Olympia Fields Dental Associates and Oak Park Dental Group work to keep smiles healthy and bright. Although both dental teams are adept at general dentistry, helping patients maintain glittering smiles without using actual glitter, they also hold specialists among their ranks. These specialists have skills in oral surgery and extractions, as well as dental implants that can sometimes be made in just one day.
Both practices also strive to stay ahead of the curve in treatment technology. At Olympia Fields, high-powered microscopes and other tools give restorations a precise and comfortable fit, while at Oak Park, 3-D x-rays give dentists a better view of the entire mouth.
