Chicago Dentist Begins Offering Early-Bird Hours

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - March 31, 2015) - Dr. Michael Griffin, a top Chicago cosmetic dentist, is offering early-bird hours at his comprehensive dental practice.

Dr. Griffin, owner of the practice Northalsted Dental Spa, will now open his practice at 7 a.m. on Thursdays. Dr. Griffin said the new hours will allow patients to schedule appointments before work.

Northalsted Dental Spa has convenient hours and is open Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and some Saturdays. The office, 3710 N. Halsted St., is open Mondays and Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.; Thursday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and some Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Americans lose about 164 million work hours every year because of dental problems, while children and young adults lose more than 50 million instructional hours because of dental issues.

Dr. Griffin said he added the early-bird hours because he often hears from working professionals who put off their dental care because they cannot take time off work. Other patients end up losing vacation or personal time off because of their dental visits.

"These early Thursday hours will give patients a chance to get their dental care completed before work. With our same-day crown technology, we can even prep a tooth and place a permanent crown before 9 a.m.," the Chicago dentist said. "With our convenient hours, we hope our patients can find time to schedule their visits and keep their mouths healthy."

Dr. Griffin, a Chicago-area native, received his bachelor's degree in human biology from the University of Kansas in 1994 and then his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine. He has completed hundreds of hours in continuing education in orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry and implant dentistry.

Dr. Griffin serves families and is a GLBT-friendly dentist.

Dr. Griffin opened Northalsted Dental Spa, a comprehensive family practice in 2005. Since then, he has expanded his services to include treatments like Invisalign, an orthodontic solution that allows patients to straighten their teeth without metal brackets and wires. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gradually move the teeth into the desired position. The aligners are removable and virtually undetectable.

Other individual services from Northalsted Dental Spa include restorative onlays and crowns, porcelain veneers, teeth-whitening treatments, non-surgical periodontal therapy, dental implants, bridges, extractions (including wisdom teeth extractions) and Botox injections to treat TMJ issues.

Dr. Griffin uses revolutionary CEREC technology to provide patients with same-day crowns. Typical dental offices require patients to visit their office two or three times before a permanent crown is placed -- forcing the patient to wear a temporary crown for several weeks. Dr. Griffin can restore teeth with a permanent dental crown in under two hours.
