At Modern Dental, which was featured on OfficlaBestOf.com as Chicago’s best cosmetic dental office of 2011, Chicago native Dr. Phillip Palella and his team of dentists fire up exams by checking on chompers to deduce their dental hygiene and decide which treatments, if any, might be needed to achieve pearly white perfection. X-rays provide a more in-depth look at your mouth’s enamel entities and any potential cavities or catastrophes lurking beneath them. With a cleaning, a hygienist will scrape and soak away tartar and other plaque hanging on the walls of your dental den, leaving your mouth as clean and clear as a starving minimalist artist’s living room. While your teeth are held firmly in place, Modern Dental’s offices allow your brain to wander to a TV, your iPod, or to painting imaginary presidential portraits on the ceiling.
Modern Dental Chicago
Chicago native Dr. Phillip Palella and his staff want their patients to have a relaxing experience at Modern Dental Chicago. Accordingly, they’ve fitted their cozy Lakeview clinic with high-speed Internet access, televisions in the treatment rooms, and headphones to cancel out any noise during general cleanings and root canals. Before patients kick back in the chair, they can check in quickly and paperlessly on an Android tablet and grab some juice or coffee from the refreshment bar. Dentists are also sure to set aside time at each appointment to explain all treatment options and relay any messages for the tooth fairy.
