Dental Practice Philosophy

Porcelain crowns

This beautiful smile makeover was done to replace some older less attractive opaque crowns. Our patient wanted a natural healthy appearance.

OUR PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY | COLLABORATIVE PLANNING

AT LAKE FOREST DENTAL ARTS we believe that creating a truly healthy beautiful smile is a highly collaborative process. We begin by listening to our clients: your desires, your goals for better dental health, and your very personal perceptions of beauty. We take time to understand your concerns and to thoroughly answer your questions. So many of our new patients report that their former dentist didn’t listen.  That the dentist wasn’t curious enough to even ask about your past experiences, fears, personal goals and limitations.  We know that everyone is different and you all come with different issues, apprehensions, and agendas. We don’t want to pry into your life but we love to get to know you.  We figure the better we understand who you are, the better we can counsel you. We don’t just give a cookie cutter same recommendation for everyone.

Dr. Fondriest works with other top dental and medical specialists as well as world class labs, ceramists and materials. We offer our clients the best possible treatment outcomes available in dentistry today, reflecting your vision for health, function and beauty.

THE GOAL OF OUR PRACTICE –

is to realize a shared vision of uncompromised excellence in dentistry.

To fulfill this mission, we are committed to:

  • Truly listening to those we are privileged to serve
  • Ensuring a friendly and compassionate environment
  • Exceeding expectations with creative and individualized treatment solutions
  • Taking you, our patient to a place you have not been before in health, beauty, self-confidence and full ownership of your dental health decisions

PATIENT PRIVACY AND PRACTICE DISCRETION

Many clients of the practice value discretion and desire that the treatment process flow so that no other person is aware that treatment is taking place.  Our goal is to provide dentistry that is indistinguishable from natural.  This allows our patients the choice to admit or not to admit that they have had something done.

Our Chicago North Shore dental office is dedicated to earning and preserving your trust. It is our intention to show our gratitude for this trust by providing the best possible care… and genuine concern … for all that is important to you. Every treatment recommendation, choice, method, and material must pass the test of “What is best for the patient?” It’s a core value of Dr. Fondriest and his entire team.

Our lives are made meaningful by the services our patients allow us to provide to them
