Find out why Barr & Diachenko is the best dental office in Millennium Park.

You’re a high-achieving business executive in downtown Chicago, which means you have ambition, a tight schedule, and the need for the best services available to help your day run as smoothly as possible. So when it comes to your oral health, you require the best dentist in your vicinity. Look no further because our team at Barr & Diachenko dental office checks every box, and we’re not about fluff.

Allow us to explain why we’re one of the best dental offices in the Millennium Park/Chicago area.

Warm, Inviting Atmosphere

Whenever you’re undergoing any dental service, you don’t really want to receive just the service. You most likely want personable interactions with the dental team, high-quality services, and an overall feel-good experience.

Our team at the Barr & Diachenko dental office prides ourselves on our warm and inviting atmosphere. You’ll be immediately greeted by our friendly and competent team (get to know our team here) who will attend to all your needs. Not only that, but our office has been designed with a sense of care and cleanliness to add another layer of comfort to your visit (see our office photos here).

Expert Training and Decades of Experience

You shouldn’t allow just anyone to handle your teeth; after all, they’re some of your most-prized possessions. They’re the core of your beautiful smile, and smiling has been proven to increase the production of the hormones that combat some of the negative emotions that often plague busy people like you, such as stress, sadness, and anxiety (the temporary kind, not the clinically diagnosed kind). That being said, you can most certainly trust our team to take care of you. Why?

Dr. Barr, one of our dentists who graduated with a degree in both psychology and bioscience, has over 40 years of experience with more than 80 annual hours of continuous education in his field. He’s also a holder of multiple renowned certificates (CEREC mentor, doctorate of dental surgery, and more). Dr. Diachenko (previously Dr. Barr’s assistant) has over 25 years of experience under her belt, with at least 50 annual hours of continuous education. Dr. Zaim, the newest addition to our dental lineup, earned her undergraduate degree in biological sciences and her doctorate in dentistry from the University of Illinois.

Last but not least, the team at Barr & Diachenko is well-trained, holding multiple certifications and completing dozens of training hours. The team members also dedicate tens of annual hours to enhance their expertise. In short, you can rest assured that you’re in good and qualified hands.

Latest and Greatest Technological Tools and Techniques

Older tools and techniques are still valid and effective. However, they may not be the most efficient when considering the three most important factors of dental work: time, cost, and quality. As a highly competent and competitive dentistry practice, our team makes sure to learn and acquire the newest scientifically proven advanced technological tools and techniques. That gives us leverage over our competitors and, at the same time, helps us provide you with the best care and services available on the market.

Here’s a small list of dentistry services we provide and the technology we use for them:

  • VELscope® for oral cancer screening
  • Digital X-rays (radiographs) for less exposure to radiation and quicker treatment
  • CariVu™ for caries detection through tooth analysis using near-infrared transillumination
  • T-scan system for detecting and balancing occlusions (the meeting of the upper and lower jaw), which reduces the number of patient visits
  • The Wand™ for painless and fearless anesthesia. An amazing alternative for our patients with trypanophobia (fear of needles)

Understand the Unique Composition of Your Smile

Every smile is different, which makes sense since our genetic code is incredibly diverse. While oral ailments are not as diverse, we cannot prescribe the same treatment for one condition to all of our patients if we want to see the best results. For example, two patients dealing with an overbite wouldn’t necessarily be prescribed braces. One of them may require an aligner, while the other one might need surgery.

On top of that, every individual has a unique set of teeth, which is why dental records are used for identification. Therefore, we do our very best to understand the unique composition of your smile to provide you with the best solutions. See our smile gallery here.

The Cherry on Top

As a successful professional, you understand the power of one’s image. You also understand that your smile is one of your most effective tools in your arsenal when engaging with business partners, clients, and teammates. Therefore, you wouldn’t want to put the fate of your oral health in the hands of just anyone. Fortunately, Dr. Barr was honored as one of Chicago’s top 20 dentists by Chicago Magazine in January 2017. So as far as credentials go, you’re in safe hands.
