Thank you for choosing Smile Today Dental as your dental care professionals.
Dr. Kidonakis and her staff of well-qualified and friendly assistants will care for your oral hygiene needs. We look forward to establishing a relationship with you for all you and your family preventative and cosmetic dental needs – cosmetic dentistry, veneers, crowns, implants, cleaning and more – we take pride in helping you with any family dentist oral care need you may have.
Your Initial Visit
Initial appointment consists of you meeting the Dr. and staff. We firmly believe in providing a comfortable environment for you and encourage you to share any concerns or questions with us. We fully understand that most people avoid dental treatment because of different reasons such as fear of pain, injections, or simply uncertainty as to what is required to maintain dental health. We know that 99% of dental disease is preventable and we are available to coach you and help you achieve a beautiful and healthy smile. Once you and your family (if we are seeing them all) are comfortable with us and with your permission we proceed to collecting information including but not limited to Necessary x-rays, gum and bone exam, oral cancer exam, existing teeth restorations and pathology which will help us provide you with the best solution for you. Dr. Kidonakis will then review this information and present you at your next visit with a plan of possible treatment options and recommendations which will help you achieve and maintain dental health.
State of the Art Dentistry!
We offer state of the art dentistry, including low radiation digital x-rays and welcome you to experience the difference at Smile Today Dental. An example of our new and modern dental equipment is our Intra-oral camera.
This high-tech dental camera allows Dr. Kidonakis and staff to spot problems that before could not be seen with the traditional dental mirror and human eye. This small dental camera carries its own light and highly magnifies the images onto a computer screen in front of you. If there is a problem, we will freeze the frame, point out the exact problem, discuss it and offer a solution. Your interaction and understanding of your oral health is empowering and leads to better oral health awareness.
Also, at Smile Today Dental we utilize the Diagnodent. The Diagnodent can detect a weakness in a tooth before it becomes a cavity. That could mean no more Novocain shots and no more drills!
Diagnodent finds hard-to-spot areas of tooth decay. This FDA approved device is a compact diode laser used to identify areas of tooth decay that traditional means, including X-rays, miss. Diagnodent shines a laser beam down into the tooth, to a depth of 2.5 mm. The device is aimed into the grooves of teeth, providing a decay reading to Dr. Evelyn Kidonakis.
PREVENTION – We actively aid our patients in obtaining a lifetime of good dental health. We thoroughly examine your teeth, gums and bone structure, emphasize good oral hygiene, and offer these preventive care services:
CHECKUPS & EXAMS – From the moment you arrive at our Glenview dental practice you will be treated with professional and comforting care. During your initial exam you will be screened for oral cancer, given diagnostic x-rays for examination, gum disease evaluation and an update on your current dental health. We encourage our patients to visit on a regular basis in order to prevent disease before it happens.
CLEANINGS – The individual care you will receive includes removal of plaque and tarter from your teeth and gum line and polish them to remove common stains.
SEALANTS– We offer sealants for both our adult and pediatric patients. A sealant is a tooth colored or clear plastic material that adheres to your natural tooth enamel. The benefits of sealing common pits and grooves against tooth decay can be an effective and affordable means to head off future decay problems.
PERIODONTICS– Healthy gums make healthy teeth. We continually search for signs of early gum disease so it can be treated non-surgically prior to becoming a major problem.
