Dr. Alin Alkass has opened his own dental practice on Elston Avenue in Chicago after working with other dentists for seven years. His new office is called Smiles on Elston, and his aim is for all his patients to smile when they attend their dentist appointments and leave with a beautiful smile.
Dr. Alkass earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the New York University College of Dentistry in 2005 and hasn’t stopped educating himself on the latest techniques and advancements in dentistry. He is also a member of the local, state and national dental associations and societies and keeps close contact with innovations in the field.
When people visit a dentist’s office, they are usually tense and expecting pain. Alin Alkass knows this from his own experience and after years of working with patients in the Chicago area. He believes that a happy experience at the dentists will promote better dental health. He has learned that when he explains the issues clearly and suggests the possible solutions, his patients relax and feel they have some control over their problems.
People who don’t dread visiting the dentist, tend to take better care of their teeth and get regular check-ups. Getting check-ups on a regular basis is the best preventative treatment for avoiding serious, complicated and expensive dental procedures.
With today’s advanced dental procedures, there is more than one way to handle missing teeth, crooked teeth, stained and chipped teeth as well as serious infection and tooth extraction. Dr. Alkass makes sure his patients understand the possible solutions, and he also recommends what he thinks is the best option.
The patients of Dr. Alkass regularly give him ten out of ten for his care and attention as well as quality of work. One patient said Dr. Alin Alkass really knows his stuff. The bridge he put looks and feels great. Another patient said I don’t mind going to the dentist any more. Another said, we sincerely appreciate the professionalism and care Dr. Alin Alkass gives to each member of our family. We have recommended him to friends and other family members because of our satisfaction.
Dental insurance is another complicated issue for many people. The staff in the office helps explain dental insurance policies to patients. One person writes, I used to be afraid of going to the dentist after I had my wisdom teeth removed in the army. Visiting Dr. Alkass was a completely different experience. He was understanding and gentle, and the lady at the front desk explained my insurance in a clear way. I learned a lot that day.
Dentistry has come a long way from the days of fear and pain. Dr. Alkass has made it his mission to treat his patients with the gentle care, consideration and respect that makes them look forward to dentist appointments. It is his experience that these are the people who have the best oral health and, therefore, the best overall health. He and the staff at Smiles on Elston encourage everyone to leave their fears behind.
