New Patients

At Smile First Family Dental Studio, we place a HUGE emphasis on first getting to know the patient first, so that you can feel like you’re part of our family. We will first begin with a questionnaire and a thorough discussion with the doctor about your needs and goals for dental treatment.

When we examine you as a patient, we always keep in mind that your present problems, variation of anatomy, and medical and dental history are all unique to you. Your examination will include an evaluation of past, present, and potential problems. We will examine all oral tissue for decay, gum and bone problems including an oral cancer screening.

We will take digital x-rays to identify hidden problems (if necessary). If a malocclusion (something wrong with your bite) is present or developing, we may also take diagnostic impressions (molds of your teeth in order to study and diagnose). This information will guide us in planning your treatment. We understand that not all your needs can be covered in the realm of general dentistry, that’s why we work with a highly skilled group of  specialists including but not limited to:

  • Dr. Robert Busan – Periodontics
  • Dr. Kirk Kollmann – Pediatric Dentistry
  • Dr. Cissy Furusho – Pediatric Dentistry
  • Dr. Ron Jacobson – Orthodontics
  • Dr. Raymond Tsou – Orthodontics

We also have the best Oral surgeon and Root Canal specialists and dentist in the 60659 region under our roof!

Dr. Cristian has such gentle hands and makes me smile every time I walk in there. That’s hard to do considering he’s working on my teeth. I recommend the practice highly. You won’t be disappointed 😉👍

It’s usual to say I’m worried like going to the dentist, with My dentist it doesn’t fit. I enjoy meeting the staff, the treatment is so lightly done I do not have the slightest feeling that pain may be involved. Also the new information is welcome and to the point. I was almost sorry that it came to an end, I wanted to be in the salon a little longer. I pray that you will have the same experience!Thank you Dr Ilie Pavel and each and every one that make the team! God blessings on you and every one you care for!Thank you!

My experience at this dental office has been nothing short of amazing. The level of care Dr. Pavel provides is unmatched. He has a way of lifting spirits and making you feel extremely comfortable through the entire process. I was referred to Dr Pavel from my physical therapist to be fitted for a mouth appliance to help my jaw and overall body mechanics. No other dentist I know actually understands this relationship but Dr. Cristian Pavel does and it has made such a difference in my overall health.
