Lakeshore East residents can smile confidently this year. In late November, Chicago Dental Boutique, run by dentist and Lakeshore East resident Dr. Rohi Atassi and his wife Samia Akhras, will open in The Village Market, 333 E. Benton Pl.
The practice will provide a full selection of comprehensive dental care, including routine dental care, oral surgery, Invisalign, full mouth reconstruction, implants, laser dentistry and pediatric dentistry.
North Harbor Tower resident Nadine Ferranti is looking forward to the addition. “The fact that they are going to have a pediatric dentist is a plus. Lakeshore East is lacking things for kids here,” Ferranti said.
Akhras, Chicago Dental Boutique’s patient coordinator, notes the convenience for residents. “It is walking distance,” she said. “You can get a dental exam then pick up groceries at Mariano’s, and then be home in five to ten minutes.”
Atassi received his D.D.S. in 2011 and his certificate in Advanced Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry in 2015. He then became a member of the UCLA Center for Esthetic Dentistry faculty, teaching a course on clinical skills and working closely on expanding a new clear aligners orthodontic system. Upon moving to Chicago in 2016, Atassi began working in private practices in the Chicagoland area.
The office will have state-of-the-art dental technology and equipment, and six modern patient care rooms that promote a spa-like experience, decked out with noise-canceling headphones, massage chairs, and two flat-screen TV’s in each patient care room.
“I believe that opening Chicago Dental Boutique in Lakeshore East will make dental healthcare more accessible to our community,” Atassi said.
