AV Dental spruces up Chicagoland smiles with its toothsome array of general and cosmetic dental services and in-house denture lab. An investigative exam first checks the chompers for mastication-threatening maladies such as gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer (a $94 value), while a cleaning removes tartar and moves plaque to the proverbial mantel, right next to spelling bee trophy (a $99 value). Diagnostic x-rays round out the visit, with expert eyes scrutinizing every area in search of decay, tumors, cysts, bone loss, and cane-carrying men sporting red- and white-striped attire (a $146 value).
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.
With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-healthcare professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack. A skilled doctor and staff will skillfully probe forgotten mouth corners, eradicating tartar and expunging plaque from bacterial lairs. The included x-rays will help uncover any oral problem areas that cannot be seen with the shamelessly naked eye. After treatment, clients will be privy to tips that explain the proper brushing and flossing techniques to ward off gum disease and tooth loss, ensuring tongue-stoppers remain firmly rooted to the rest of the skeletal system.
Although Dr. Priti Chokshi has been practicing dentistry since 1996—and has completed more than 150 hours of continuing education—she still recognizes the fundamental importance of seeing her patients on time. At Bolingbrook Family Dental, where she and her staff offer general dentistry services such as teeth cleanings, implants, and exams, 97% of the appointments begin precisely when they’re scheduled. Augmenting that dependable statistic, the office’s arsenal of top-of-the-line dentistry includes tools such as Zoom! teeth-whitening lamps, electronic hand pieces, and digital X-rays that are much safer than X-ray vision.
Drs. Xhelo Shuaipaj and Mazar Shuaipaj are lifelong students of dentistry. Although they are already accomplished doctors of dental surgery with a combined 38 years of experience, they bolster their abilities by keeping up with the latest advancements in the field. Dr. Xhelo also frequently plays the role of educator, distributing his expansive orthodontic know-how through articles, training sessions for other dentists, and announcements by the town crier. Together, Dr. Xhelo and Dr. Mazar also lend their tooth-tending hands to Donated Dental Services, providing essential dental care to the economically and medically disadvantaged. This expansive knowledge is shared with patients at Elite Dental Care, where the skilled staff treats the entire spectrum of dental needs. Whether they are in need of a basic cleaning, a cosmetic procedure, or an Invisalign treatment, patrons who visit one of the practice's two locations can confidently open wide, knowing they're in the hands of experienced professionals.
When he was a boy in the small town of Mount Olive, Illinois, Dr. David J. Rubis dreamed of being a dentist. Doggedly pursuing his goal, he graduated from Northwestern University Dental School in 1978 and opened his own practice. Years later, his son, Dr. Joseph Rubis, followed in his footsteps by joining a growing network of dental-care centers headed by Rubis pére. Now, as the network boasts 30 dentists working at 10 locations throughout Chicagoland, Advanced Family Dental & Orthodontics, PC, continues its founder’s mission to provide the best care for patrons' teeth, gums, and crippling need to collect every color of complimentary toothbrush.
