The team at Windy City Smiles has been treating the citizens of Chicago for over 30 years. We are…………….. Where Chicago Smiles.

Windy City Smiles is Chicago’s premier dental practice. We are pioneers in Cosmetic Dentistry and Laser Dentistry, which allows us to deliver No-Shot / No-Pain Dentistry ensuring our patients receive the finest care and highest-quality minimally invasive treatment available.

Our Mission

While we view oral health as a vital component to the total health and well-being of our patients, our focus is not limited to dentistry. 
Our mission is to ensure that each individual remains healthy in all aspects of their lives.

At Windy City Smiles we know your life doesn’t revolve around your teeth, but high-quality dental care is important to you. Therefore, our bi-lingual and specially trained staff is dedicated to providing the highest quality care in the least amount of time to get you back enjoying the things your life does revolve around.


Windy City Smiles uses the latest technology to provide you and your family with the highest quality care. We have replaced our traditional dental drill with the Biolase® Waterlase® laser to provide No-Shot / No-Pain Dentistry ensuring our patients receive the finest care and highest-quality treatment available.

Our laser uses a combination of water and light to replace the drill. The laser energizes the water droplets and the droplets actually do the work! We can use the laser for the following procedures:

  • Teeth Whitening
  • Cavities
  • Implants
  • Root Canal
  • Cosmetic Gum Recontouring
  • Soft tissue procedures (such as smile re-design)
  • Dental Surgery
  • Canker/Cold sores
  • Aphthous Ulcer treatment
  • Frenectomy
Benefits of Laser Dentistry

This state of the art technology provides numerous benefits to the patient. Here are the most important benefits to you:

  • Many patients find that with the Waterlase®, they no longer need painful, uncomfortable anesthetic shots. They leave the office without feeling numb!
  • You will be out of our office quicker, because the Waterlase® enables us to work faster than with the traditional drill. This means that you and your family are out of the chair and back to enjoying life as soon as possible.
  • If you are disturbed by the whine of the dental drill you will be pleasantly surprised at the quietness of the laser.
  • Your fillings last longer because the laser enables them to bond more securely to your teeth.

The Waterlase® makes surgical procedures more comfortable because there is less bleeding, less swelling and faster healing than with using traditional instruments.

Hello Windy City Smiles patients and families,

We hope this email finds you and your family in good health. We have all been through a great crisis over the last few months, and we all look forward to getting back to our normal routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for Windy City Smiles and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

You will see the following new protocols at your next appointment. These must be followed to help protect our patients and staff:

  • Our office will call you a few days before your appointment to ask screening questions. These questions will be asked again when you are in the office. Your temperature will be taken. If your temperature is 100 or above your appointment will be rescheduled.
  • On the day of your visit, we ask that you stay in your car and call us to see if we are ready for you. Only patients are allowed in our office, to allow for social distancing. If it is necessary for a patient to have a parent with them, then the parent will be subject to full check-in protocol including wearing a mask.
  • Hand sanitizer is available in reception as well as treatment rooms and must be used before your treatment.
  • We will no longer offer magazines, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
  • Everyone entering the office MUST wear a mask.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 773.588.SMILE(7645).

Thank you for being our patients. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
