On a visit to her dentist for a regular checkup, Dr. Irena Hyvel looked around, figured she "would look good in a white lab coat," and decided to enroll in dental school. The rest, of course, is history: Dr. Hyvel graduated from and practiced in her native Ukraine before coming to the United States where she went back to school and received her dental license from the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. Today, Dr. Hyvel owns Bond Dental Studio, a general and cosmetic practice that she describes as "kind of like my first child." This dedication to dentistry is visible through her meticulous attention to detail with each patient.
A quick glance around the office supports this statement: the place has been meticulously designed and cared for, and resembles a spa more than a typical medical practice. Patients wait in buttery leather chairs while tapestries of fuchsia and green pop against silvery walls and lush ferns and flowers spill from vases. Beyond the slick marble reception desk and the candles flickering in pebble-filled trays, treatment rooms bear the practice's name in glossy letters that shine against matte black walls.
By offering cosmetic care alongside preventative and restorative dental procedures, Pacer Dental P.C. ensures that patients of all ages have keep their smiles healthy and vibrant. Dr. Rathi and Dr. Sway oversee the practice, using modern advancements in dental technology, such as digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, to help them locate and diagnose potentially troublesome areas before the decay or infection has a chance to cause major damage. Regular exams and routine cleanings help prevent the spread of decay, although the doctors are also capable of repairing existing damage with implants, crowns, or holographic veneers. The practice also performs dental work on dentures or orthodontic braces and their team may provide assistance with snoring or sleep apnea. To keep smiles looking flawless, Pacer Dental P.C. offers in-office teeth-whitening procedures along with treatments designed to address signs of gum disease.
At Universal City Dental Center, Dr. Jirair Gasparian and his team perform a variety of procedures intended to protect patients' teeth and gums. Periodic checkups both detect and treat signs of trouble before they become serious complications, but when action is required to correct a problem, the practice offers surgical as well as noninvasive options.
Porcelain crowns and veneers conceal signs of damage, dental implants help fill any gaps, and tooth-colored composite fillings seamlessly replace decay. Additionally, Invisalign straighteners even out smiles, and Rembrandt teeth-whitening products brighten the stains caused by coffee, cigarettes, or a career spent taste-testing food coloring.
Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. The resident toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, staining, and loitering Minnesota Twins, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting, and gums and soft tissues will be inspected for any signs of periodontal disease. The x-ray battery exposes the roots and inner sanctums of oral stalagmites to reveal any soft spots, problem areas, or cavities. When your mouth checks out as mammalian and your teeth are cleared for takeoff, the professional teeth cleaning begins. An expert cleaning removes all the buildup and surface staining that regular brushing and flossing can't—hardened tartar, hard-to-reach plaque, and bacterial graffiti along the gum line.
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.
