Dr. Alin Alkass, a native of Illinois, believes the best way to beautify our world is with smiles. From his younger days in school to his current work in his private dental practice, he has worked to help others feel comfortable smiling. On days out of the office, he enjoys watching the smiles on the faces of his wife and children, and more than once his own smile has broadened as he has watched the Chicago Bears fight their way to victory.
Dr. Alin Alkass began his higher education with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Illinois Chicago. He then continued his education by earning a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from New York University College of Dentistry. Today, he maintains professional relevance by participating in continuing education opportunities as often as possible as well as retaining membership in professional societies including the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, the Chicago Dental Society and the Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. Alin Alkass is particularly skilled as a gentle dentist, especially in work with children as well as adults with fear of dentists. Additionally, Dr. Alkass is skilled in the advanced use of digital technology; periodontal maintenance or gum care; tooth nerve therapy otherwise known as root canals; basic dental repair and placement of fillings, crowns and bridges; all types of extractions and more. This skill and his chair-side manner regularly bring compliments from patients. One patient commented, “Dr. Alkass did a wonderful job of explaining the process each step of the way and is instrumental to modifying my habits for better dental health.”
Dr. Alin Alkass is a different kind of dentist. Warm, patient and caring, he takes the time to listen and then provide you with the best care possible. He is also well-regarded by his patients for his thoroughness. Rather than being rushed, he believes in personal quality over quantity and is complimented for his light, gentle touch.
Away from the office, Dr. Alin Alkass enjoys spending time with his family. As a sports enthusiast, he finds the biggest smiles coming to his face when the Chicago Bears are winning. He also enjoys giving to others by donating to charities such as the Red Cross and the American Cancer Society.
Smiles are more becoming than frowns, but many people find it embarrassing to flash a toothy grin. Dr. Alkass works to increase the number of people who enjoy grinning from ear to ear.
