“Growing up in a close-knit community, I came to appreciate the trust that we could place in those businesses we relied upon, including our dentist. Unfortunately, in a large city like Chicago, it is often difficult for individuals to find that same personalized and trusting atmosphere. My goal is to offer patients reliability and affordability, in a warm and inviting atmosphere.
As a dentist who has been trained in the latest procedures, I also realize that honesty and a caring atmosphere are not enough in offering patients the high level of care they deserve. As a result, we have designed a facility that offers the latest technology available. For example, our state-of-the-art equipment allows you to view your teeth and x-rays on a large-screen TV so your treatment needs can be fully explained to you.
I feel it crucial that our patients not only understand their treatment, but that the doctor and patient work together to establish a treatment plan that fits both your needs AND your budget. I realize choosing between dentists can be confusing, but I know once you’ve visited us, you’ll see we’ve made patient care our top priority… the difference will be clear.”
