Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - HealthThere is an age-old adage that says, the world always looks brighter from behind a smile, a philosophy Dr. Mahesh Patel shares with his many patients at his dental clinic Your Family Smiles in the Logan Square community.

“I’ve witnessed lives transform over the years that I have been here,” said Dr. Patel. “People are happy and have a positive outlook when they step out our doors. It’s pretty great.”

With a degree from Loyola University Chicago College of Dental Surgery, Dr. Patel has over 25 years of experience in dentistry, and completed a surgical residency at Cook County Hospital in Chicago. More specifically, Dr. Patel is considered an expert in TMJ disorders, a jaw-joint issue which is believed to cause headaches and migraines. “People often don’t make the connection between the two. That is what sets our clinic apart from the others because we are one of the few that specializes in TMJ and we can also do the braces to finish the whole program without major surgery.”

Not only does Your Family Smiles offers services in TMJ, but they specialize in an array of options like, dental implants, hygiene/periodontal health, extractions, veneers, teeth-whitening, and braces, among others. Dr. Patel utilizes his experience and welcoming nature allows for the best possible solution in acquiring a health smile for all his patients. Dr. Patel says he is committed to providing superior dental care in a comfortable and state of the art facility. “My goal is to help my patients feel and look their best while focusing on long term dental health.”

Dr. Patel is a member of the Chicago Dental Society, American Dental Association, Academy of GP Orthodontists, and International Association of Orthodontists. Dr. Patel welcomes new patients to his clinic for free consultations and free exams. Your Family Smiles is located on 4355 W. Fullerton. For more information, visit “I enjoy all aspects of my job.
