What Does a Dentist Do?

What does a dentist do? I’m glad you asked! Let’s start from the beginning. Like most health-care professionals, dentists are required to obtain a degree from one of the many colleges accredited by the American Dental Association (ADA). Most are required to get their bachelor’s degree before heading off to dental school. I personally graduated in 1984 from the University of Illinois. Of course, in the years since, I have continued my education with literally thousands of extra learning hours. The day in the life of a dentist is moderately predictable… mainly because Big Smile Dental maintains a pretty organized … Continue reading

Unfortunately, one of the side effects of this glorious beverage is that it can stain your teeth and give you a nasty yellow layer that just doesn’t look pretty. That is why I am very proactive with my teeth whitening services. I’m not saying that teeth whitening for coffee drinkers are necessary, but it’s definitely something to consider if you are a two-to-three cups of day kind of coffee drinker.

Embrace your smile!

Do you have crooked teeth? If so, you know that it can be embarrassing to smile, challenging to chew, and virtually impossible to clean all of the little nooks and crannies. You’re probably saying, “I’m too old for braces.” We’ve heard it many times before, but it simply isn’t true. Every day, brave adults don metal braces and proudly flash a “tin grin.” The truth is, they work great for adults, but many of us just aren’t willing to do it. We understand.

    What Our Patients Say

    5 star review by

    Wonderful!! Always wonderful!! It's been 30 years now since we first came to Big Smile Dental. Every visit is always met with kind and courteous help at the front desk. I always feel very cared for and the care is gentle. I live 40 miles away from Logan Square now, but I still travel to see Dr. Siegel because I trust him as a person and as a professional. I trust my family to his care!
