First Dental Checkup

Well-Baby Checkup 2020

Dr. Orbon, Dr. Maddox and Dr. Paula suggest that you bring your child in for a well-baby visit after the first tooth comes in, and no later than the first birthday.  The Doctor will check for cavities and any other problems, and will show you how to clean your child’s teeth properly and how to handle habits like thumb sucking.
Think of the appointment as a happy and fun experience.

Successful Toys for Tots 2019

Thank you to all of our patients and staff for making 2019 another successful Toys for Tots collection! The marines for Great Lakes Naval Air Base picked up the toys today and are distributing the new, unused toys to children in need in Lake County. We wish all the children and families a happy and healthy holiday!

We Named Our Latest Affiliated Parrot Fish!

Reid and Andres named our latest Affiliated Parrot Fish! Our two new parrot fish to join the Affiliated Fish Family in Vernon Hills are named Fay and Miles. Thank you Reid, Carlos and all the Affiliated Families for trying to come up with names for the latest members of our Affiliated Fish Family.

Everyday, we see what an important part our fish play at Affiliated Dental Specialists. Our patients constantly interact with our fish in the reception areas at our Vernon Hills and Gurnee offices. Our Doctors and Staff see and hear the joy and curiosity that our patients express when they stop by the aquariums before and after their dental visits. Patients ask what the names of the fish are, how old are they, why is a certain fish missing and the list goes on and on. We know the important role that our Affiliated fish family plays, and we love our fish family! We’re glad you love our fish family too!

Both Affiliated Offices are Official Toys for Tots Dropsites

We’re in the home stretch of collecting new, unwrapped gifts for Toys for Tots! The last week of collections at both of the Affiliated offices is just as important as the first week. We make sure that dropping off new, unwrapped toys is as convenient as possible for our patients and their families by making sure that the Toys for Tots boxes are at the Vernon Hills and Gurnee offices. The patients and staff get excited about helping the marines make the holidays a little more special for children in need. This year, we’ve seen patients and their families bring everything from single toys to sacks of toys to our drop-sites! Thank you to all the families who donated toys for the children through Toys for Tots.
