Using Dental Skills to Serve the Community
Dr. Gary Ahasic has dozens of ways to make patients smile about their smiles. A general dentist at Fairview Dental Center in Aurora, he’s done everything in his 38-year career from filling cavities, to installing colorless Invisalign braces, to fabricating porcelain crowns in his office while patients wait, rather than making them spend weeks coping with temporary crowns.
But for thousands of low-income residents throughout the western suburbs and beyond, Ahasic is the original Dentist With a Heart. The charity he founded with practice partner Dr. Brian Tonner has provided free dental services totaling $1 million-plus to more than 3,500 patients since 2001.
"I’ve always felt bad for people who can’t seek treatment. Even with Medicare, Medicaid and public aid programs, a lot of people slip through the cracks," Ahasic says. "I’d heard of a similar program years before and I thought it would be fun to try here, so I talked to one of my partners and we decided to run with it."
Participating dentists choose one day each February to open their clinics exclusively to needy patients who can’t afford basic dental care. They and their staffs treat as many of those patients as they can, all completely free. The first year about 10 other dentists from the Aurora Dental Society joined Ahasic and Tonner and treated a few hundred patients in the Aurora area. Last year, more than 60 dentists between Plainfield, Elgin, Naperville and Sycamore participated, treating anywhere from eight patients to the 128 patients that Fairview Dental accommodated.
"We open for eight hours, we have 16 treatment rooms and we spend an hour with each patient to make sure they get all the care they need," Ahasic explains. "It’s a busy day, but it’s a lot of fun. Our staff also donates their time, and it feels almost like a party because what we’re doing is so rewarding."
Dentist With a Heart isn’t Ahasic’s first foray into community service. A member of the Visiting Nurse Association board for more than 30 years, he’s currently its chairman — as well as president of the Fox Valley Dental Society and a board member at Presence Mercy Medical Center in Aurora. "I’ve always wanted to help people," he explains. "I chose dentistry over medicine in college because I felt it would let me raise a family and still help people." An Aurora native, he lives in Sugar Grove with his wife, Judy — a fellow volunteer who went to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and spent several weeks donating her services as a registered nurse.
The best way to help a drill-shy patient is to take things slow and let the patient feel in control of the process, Ahasic asserts. "I involve the patient in his treatment plan. I like to know his wants and needs so he can feel satisfied with what we’ve done. A lot of adults have had bad experiences with dentists in the past, so I do everything I can to make them feel comfortable." He takes a similar approach with children, explaining procedures and letting them set the pace of treatment as much as possible.
Though Ahasic is only a couple of years away from his 65th birthday, he doesn’t expect to lay down his dental tools anytime soon. "I don’t plan on retiring — it’s just not on my radar," he says. "I love dentistry and I love using it to help people. It’s still fun going to work, so why stop?"
Solving Serious Teeth Issues
When Robert Wolf first started working summers at his father’s oral surgery clinic, he didn’t expect to make oral surgery his life’s work.
"The first couple of summers, I was cleaning instrument trays and doing clerical work. By the time I was in college, I was a surgical assistant," Wolf recalls. "By then I’d decided that this was what I wanted to do with my life. My father never pushed me. I just found it very interesting work."
Sixteen years later, Wolf and his father, Mark, work together as partners in their Elmhurst clinic, Advanced Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, along with co-partner Dr. Anthony Dohse — for whom Wolf also worked in high school and college. "I’ve been more than fortunate to have two role models like Anthony and my dad," he says. "From the beginning, they’ve shown me the right way to do this."
That right way emphasizes treating each patient like a friend instead of just a mouth with a problem to fix. "I like to treat people the way I’d like to be treated," Wolf explains. "I try to be kind, to use humor and give patients the time they need to ask questions and understand the answers. It’s nice when I can take very anxious people and ease their fears, and it’s very rewarding to alleviate their pain. No one likes being in a dentist’s chair, so I focus on making an unpleasant experience as pleasant as possible."
Though Wolf is a licensed dentist, he points out that oral and maxillofacial surgery is a separate discipline that requires more detailed training in surgical techniques, general anesthesia, soft tissues and facial bone reconstruction. "We see people who have serious issues with their teeth, jaws or facial structures," he explains, adding that he and his partners do not do cosmetic procedures.
One of his favorite procedures is building up patients’ jawbones so that they can get dental implants. "Losing teeth thins the bone tissue, which makes it harder for patients who need implants to support them," he notes. "But dental implants can make such a huge improvement in people’s quality of life. My wife’s grandfather wasn’t able to eat almost anything because his teeth were so bad. We put in dental implants for him when he was 91, and now I love watching him at family gatherings eating raw vegetables and pizza and smiling for pictures. You’re never too old to enhance your quality of life."
People are also never too young to prepare for their long-term health. One service Wolf’s practice provides is helping patients preserve and store the stem cells hidden away inside their teeth. "Banking umbilical cord stem cells is established now, but harvesting stem cells from tooth pulp is still a new concept that a lot of people don’t know about," Wolf states. "When patients lose teeth — in an accident, when they have wisdom teeth removed, or even baby teeth, they can bank the stem cells from those teeth so that they can take advantage of genetic regenerative therapies if they ever need to down the road."
Wolf and his partners refer patients to Store-A-Tooth stem cell bank in Chicago, which charges between $850 and $1,750 to harvest dental stem cells and $120 per year to store them. "It’s expensive, but stem cell therapies are the wave of the future in medicine, so it could be invaluable in the coming years. That’s why we want to offer the option to our patients," explains Wolf.
Rehabilitating Teeth and Gums
Dr. Michael Cunningham owes his career as an award-winning periodontist to the U.S. Navy.
"I spent six years working in naval hospitals as a cytotechnologist, preparing tissue samples and interpreting the results," recalls Grove Dental Associates’ star gum disease specialist. "I worked with both doctors and dentists, so I got to know what each profession was like. I was attracted to both, but dentistry offers a nice lifestyle for a family because it has more regular hours, so when I got out of the Navy I went to dental school."
Even after Cunningham earned his doctorate in dental surgery from the University of Illinois, his love of cells and tissues prompted him to stay at the university to get a master’s degree in histology. In the process, he performed research that changed the treatment protocol for thousands of organ transplant patients.
"My master’s thesis studied the effects of ciclosporin on gum tissue," he explains. "Ciclosporin is a standard autoimmune suppressant that prevents a transplant patient’s body from rejecting the new organ, but one of its side effects is to enlarge gum tissue. Doctors thought the enlargement came from swelling, but my research showed that the drug was making the tissue cells proliferate faster. Now doctors give their patients either newer autoimmune suppressants or a newer version of ciclosporin that lessens that effect."
While organ transplant patients and their doctors appreciate Cunningham’s research skills, his patients at Grove Dental Associates appreciate his ability to fix their gums or put in dental implants while inflicting little or no pain.
The first step in making periodontal patients comfortable with their treatments is to educate them about the process, says Cunningham. "Before patients get in the chair, I concentrate on teaching them what’s going wrong inside their mouths and exactly what I’m going to do to correct it," he says. "I give them a tour of the office so they can see all the equipment and the procedures — like our sterilization process — and know that they’ll be in a safe environment. I answer all their questions before they come in to start treatment. By that time they’re confident that I can treat them without hurting them."
Cunningham also has a variety of proven ways to make his treatments as painless as possible. "I use a combination of oral sedation and ‘laughing gas’ to help patients relax," he notes. "We also provide headphones so they can listen to music; neck rests that have been warmed in the microwave; and warm wipes to clean their faces after the treatment is done. It’s almost a spa atmosphere for them."
Not only does this luxe approach to treatment make patients more comfortable during treatment, it also makes them more willing to return for checkups and follow-up procedures. And that
is especially important.
"Gum disease usually can’t be cured in one treatment session," says Cunningham. "It’s important in periodontics to keep patients motivated to come back because otherwise their gum disease will progress and they’ll lose their teeth. My top priority is helping people keep their teeth if at all possible."
Collaboration Between the Patient and Dental Specialists Is Key
Dr. Tricia Crosby learned dentistry from the ground up. Working for an oral surgeon to pay for college led her to seek a career in the field, so she became a dental assistant while she considered her future. A dental hygienist with whom she worked inspired her to train for that job, and professors in her dental hygiene program urged her to get her DDS degree.
"I was very fortunate that the program was housed in the dental college at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and a few of my professors also taught dentistry there," says Crosby. "A few of them pulled me aside and told me that they thought I had the ability to be a dentist, and I went for it."
Eleven years later, Crosby is an award-winning researcher, adjunct professor and guest lecturer, and conducts a thriving periodontics and implants practice with her mentor and partner, Dr. Martin Kolinski, in St. Charles. "I am very thankful to Dr. Kolinski because I wouldn’t be where I am today without him," she asserts. "His mentoring guided me in creating a good atmosphere in the clinic that benefits the patients."
Unlike general dental clinics, Midwest Dental Implantology does not schedule appointments with the general public. Instead, they work with about 200 clinics in the greater Fox Valley area that refer patients who need dental implants or specialized periodontic care. "We believe very strongly in collaboration between us, the referring dentist and sometimes an orthodontist or other specialist if needed. We all focus on collaborating with the patient to be sure we give that patient the best possible outcome," explains Crosby.
That collaboration begins the moment a patient walks into the clinic. "The first thing we do is to make that patient feel welcome as a person," Crosby says. "We never rush patients through the process. They can sit down, chat, receive local anesthesia or sedation and relax before their procedure. All of our staff members are educated about our procedures, so even if one of us isn’t available to answer questions, the patient can talk with other people in the office about them. Here, patients know that they’re the center of the treatment process."
Both Crosby and Kolinsky make sure to call patients the evening or morning after their surgeries to make sure they’re recovering well and to answer any follow-up questions patients might have. Crosby even chose to live in St. Charles so she could be closer to current and former patients. "I love being part of the community that my patients live in," she says. "It’s great to see them in the grocery store or when I’m out walking. I like staying in touch with them."
The president of the Illinois Society of Periodontists, Crosby also serves as editor of the Midwest Society of Periodontology’s board; serves on the board of the Fox Valley Dental Society; and works with several other national and international professional associations. "I love this field, so I want to give back to it and help shape its future," Crosby says.
