The founder of Smile More Today, Dr. Amit Kumar, who treats other dentists, and his on-staff maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Sunil P. Sinha, combine their extensive expertise in general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry with industry-leading technology. Composite-resin fillings replace cavities without the use of heavy metals, digital photos help dentists and labs communicate, and digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation emitted by traditional x-rays or superheroes by up to 90%.
No matter what the treatment, the doctors believe in pampering patients with upscale amenities, such as aromatherapy, neck pillows, warm facial towels, and a refreshment bar stocked with coffee, smoothies, and snacks. They can also dissolve facial wrinkles with Botox cosmetic injections and help soothe tension headaches and migraines with headache appliances and soft lullabies.:m]]
Dr. Alma Lombardo believes that a trip to the dentist should be unintimidating and anxiety-free. To accomplish this, she adopts a compassionate attitude with patients of any age and she stocks her practice with cutting-edge medical technology. Digital x-rays give the practitioners a clearer look at a patients’ mouth, televisions in every room help patients relax, and the office’s computerized system allows the staff to keep detailed records without wasting paper or hand-chiseled stone tablets. In addition to the technology, Dr. Lombardo and her practitioners draw on their vast experience to provide comprehensive general as well as cosmetic dental care, preventing the spread of disease and keeping smiles bright.
Dr. Ghassan Abboud believes that if a business is a good member of the community and helps those around it, success will follow—a philosophy he explained during his interview with Naperville Community Television, Channel 17. It was this approach—doing things such as helping people with financing and offering free dental care to those in need on certain days—that allowed Abboud to expand from one 1st Family Dental office in 1996 to 10 offices in the Chicagoland area.
1st Family Dental believes in providing all patients—insured and uninsured—with affordable, high-quality dental care in an appealing setting at the hands of friendly, talented doctors and staff. The practice’s dentists have also helped draw in patients with their multiple awards, their credentials in everything from maxillofacial surgery to orthodontics to prosthodontics, and their refusal to use duct tape to attach crowns. Their cosmetic-dentistry services let clients revamp their smiles with Zoom! whitening treatments and let dental implants replace any missing teeth. The 1st Family Dental experts practice dentistry for the whole family, teaching young ones how to clean their teeth without having to smile while walking through a car wash.
Dr. Joseph A. Favia and his skillful staff polish pearly whites to a high shine inside a modern 2,500-square-foot office. To kick off the two-hour BriteSmile treatment, the staff leads patients on a tour of the facility, then lets patients scrub their chompers clean with a brand-new toothbrush. Dr. Favia then checks for existing restorations before beginning the first of three 20-minute applications of BriteSmile gel, whose low concentration of hydrogen peroxide can whiten smiles more gently and permanently than wearing a set of fake Dracula fangs. Following the trio of plaque purges, patients brush teeth a second time to ensure their new shade has set. As clients depart with shiny new grins, the staff will advise them on post-treatment protocols such as avoiding foods that stain and refusing to let toddlers finger-paint their back molars.
At the offices of Dental on 45, no detail pertaining to patient comfort has been overlooked. Distilled, bottled water hydrates guests in lieu of tap water to prevent potential contamination and a modern sterilization system further impedes the spread of germs. The greatest comfort, however, comes from the bedside manners of the two doctors, who use their many years of experience to strengthen smiles with porcelain veneers, full porcelain crowns, Invisalign braces, and an in-office power whitening system. Along with their general and cosmetic dentistry, the duo also treat conditions such as gum disease, implant dentistry, and root canal treatments, referring patients to dependable outside specialists as necessary.
Dr. Maha Blaibel’s cut her teeth in the dental world by treating underprivileged children at the Infant Welfare Society and Boys and Girls Club of Chicago. Now firmly ensconced at RiverWalk Dental, she leads her friendly staff in providing patients of all ages with everything from routine checkups to cosmetic procedures. She corrects imperfections with porcelain crowns, veneers, and both invisible and traditional braces. For teeth discolored by drinking coffee or napping near a tanning bed, Dr. Blaibel uses Zoom!’s light-activated gel to lift stains and increase brightness by up to eight shades.
