After graduating from dental school, Dr. Zack Zaibak didn’t open up his own office. Instead, he earned his certification in forensic dentistry from the U.S. Navy and completed a residency in advanced dentistry at Loyola Hospital. These experiences foretold a life of constant professional learning; though he now has an award-winning practice of his own, he completes nearly 100 hours of postgraduate training every year. His extensive knowledge has inspired Fox, ABC, WGN and Univision to feature the dentist on consumer-education segments. Dr. Zaibak is also the author of The Hidden Truth Behind Beautiful Smiles, published in 2011.
In Dr. Zaibak's office near the Tinley Park Metra station, patients sip complimentary drinks while watching DVDs, listening to CDs, or reciting the alphabet in massage chairs fitted with neck pillows. While they relax, Dr. Zaibak and his highly trained staff make over their smiles with advanced cosmetic treatments, including Invisalign, whitening, and drill-free veneers.
Dr. Michael Egan, a dentist with more than 18 years of experience, works to fill the gaps in grins using the cutting-edge Invisalign system within a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.

From a waiting room furnished with a flat-screen TV, a saltwater fish tank, and a kids' play area to a dental staff that's both experienced and comforting, Dr. Thomas J. Dunn and his team have made every effort to make their patients' appointments enjoyable. At his practice, Dr. Dunn ensures that every smile he encounters emerges gleaming and healthy by performing state-of-the-art dental care in addition to specialty services, such as teeth whitening, Invisalign, and implants. He also knows that many of his patients lead busy lives, which is why he offers evening hours twice a week and stays open on Saturday.
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.
Patients at Orland Dental Care feast their eyes on TVs with Netflix access as their teeth soak up the attention of expert staff and highly trained doctors, all skilled in a spectrum of services that spruce up chompers. In addition to cosmetic dentistry, Orland Dental Care also soothes toothaches and seals cavities to keep mouths strong before county swearing bees.
Dr. Elizabeth Reiser-Loeber leads the tooth-savvy team at Orland Smiles in a mission to clean teeth and promote oral health above and below the gum line. To kick off the roughly 30-minute visit, dental assistant Starlette helps the patient settle into a chair and select his or her entertainment from an array of magazines, DVDs, or invisibly caged mimes. Orland Smiles' hygienist Krystyna then polishes chompers to a gleam, eradicates tartar build-up, and administers two bitewing x-rays, before Dr. Reiser begins the oral exam. The dental doyen wields the DIAGNOdent laser to detect hidden cavities and stashes of walnuts.
