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.
The Chicago Center for Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry's Thomas Jackson, DDS applies advanced training mastered at the University of Pennsylvania to help restore smiles through dental implants and crowns. Dental implants begin to fill the void left by missing teeth by replacing the root of the tooth with a titanium screw that unites with the jawbone around it through oseointegration. Once dental implants have been fully adopted by their foster mouths, they stand ready to accept crowns, snap-on dentures, or semipermanent swirly-straws (none of which are included in the first package). The dental-implant and crown package outfits mouths with a natural-looking, porcelain tooth starting with the placement of an abutment. Three to six months after having the implant put in place, patients return to receive their titanium abutment, which serves as a sturdy stage from which the artificial tooth can join other chompers in a smiling chorus. Once in place, the dental implant and crown are designed to look, feel, and function just like original teeth and last for a lifetime with proper care.

"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 certified orthodontist, Dr. Stosich doubles as a dental author and lecturer, and guides a skilled staff of capable tooth caretakers.
Doctors John Dano and Mary Haupers and their smile-saving staff employ their powers of dental foresight with comprehensive preventative care. The 60-minute preventative session begins with a tartar-tackling cleaning that lets floss shimmy freely through newly polished mouth fences. An initial exam will determine teeth health and tattle-tell on any mouthy misbehavior before x-rays take a peek at your smile’s porcelain skeleton.
