My staff and I will diagnose the problem and only treat the areas of disease. You will not be “categorized” into a standard treatment plan.

The Start Smiling team takes pride in helping patients recover completely in a short amount of time without pain medication. Also, our patients experience minimally invasive, non-incision, non-suture procedures. Generally, no swelling is noted, nor facial disfiguration, so you’re back to normal in no time. In addition, we provide multiple checkup appointments beyond 1 month to evaluate progress at no additional cost.

Recreating the natural esthetics of your smile is a passion for the entire Start Smiling Chicago team. As a surgeon, I have been honored to share my esthetic implant results internationally and become known for my pioneering techniques to maintain natural soft tissue contours around dental implants and natural teeth. Replacing your tooth, or teeth, with dental implants should be a simple transition and should mimic nature in every way. This is our goal and commitment.

With the state of the art technology, and minimally invasive approaches, I’m proud to say that many of our patients never experience uncomfortable pain levels. Your required procedures can be accomplished effortlessly and with no pain both during and after the procedure.

We customize your treatment to treat only the affected areas, and can customize a payment plan or payment options to help you get your healthy smile back and enjoy a stable and strong bite you can enjoy for years to come.

We are so confident in our results that we guarantee them in writing for 5 years.
