In addition to regularly scheduled visits, our general dentistry services include:
- Laser gum treatments and PerioProtect® for the treatment of gum disease
- VELscope oral cancer screening
- OralDNA saliva testing
- DIAGNOdent for the detection of cavities and Ozone therapy for drill-free cavity treatment

We also offer a full range of restorative dentistry services such as tooth colored fillings, dental crowns and bridges, and implant supported dentures to ensure all of the functional and health issues surrounding your teeth and gums are addressed.
The Importance of General Dentistry for Chicago Area Patients
The health of your teeth and gums is important not only for your smile, but for your entire body. Several studies have found a link between issues such as gum disease and an increased risk for heart attack, stroke, and respiratory issues, as well as complications with diabetes and pregnancy.
As a founding member of the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health, Dr. Alfe has a deep understanding of the mouth/body connection and is pleased to provide targeted solutions to help you maintain optimal overall health.
