"I've been going to Lakefront Dental for many years and I just can't say enough about it. Dr. Obucina and Dr. Ceisel are both delightful people. They are always on time, I've never experienced any scheduling issues and they're quick as well - I'm in and out for a cleaning in about 40 minutes - perfect for a lunch hour appointment. The cosmetic dentistry they've performed on me has been top notch. The view from the office is spectacular and they make going to the dentist fun."

"Dr. Obucina has been my dentist for many years, and I have loved her. I actually enjoyed going to the dentist! It was like having fairy hands in my mouth. When she began teaching dentistry, Dr. Ceisel became my dentist and now I feel very confident in him. Their Lakefront Dental office is conveniently located on Wabash and Washington, in the center of the Loop, with a wonderful view overlooking Millennium Park."

"I needed extensive dental work, mostly to fix problems that had been created by poor dentists from my past, and I can not speak highly enough about Lakefront Dental. The staff and beautiful office setting made me feel comfortable right from the start, and I am extremely grateful for the affordable and wonderful care I received."

Oral Health for a Lifetime with Preventive Care

You may have heard the saying, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This old adage still has bearing on modern dentistry. At Lakefront Dental, we believe it is essential to help patients maintain healthy smiles rather than treating problems after they occur. In most cases, oral health issues have few, if any, warning signs before they reach advanced stages. That is why we are passionate about having patients maintain general and preventive dental checkups every six months at our practice.

Eat Your Favorites Again with Dentures & Implants

If you’ve experienced extensive tooth loss, it is essential to replace missing teeth to regain the ability to chew and digest a varied diet, speak clearly, and smile with confidence. At Lakefront Dental, we are proud to offer both traditional partial and full dentures as well as implant-retained dentures for those in need of advanced replacement solutions. Depending on your oral health and overall goals, our doctors will create a tooth replacement plan customized to you.
