At Lake Forest Dentistry, Dr. Dennis Horanic is well-known for offering patients cutting-edge dental services and treatments, but he is also dedicated to protecting their overall well-being.

Recognized as the first solar-powered dental facility in the United States, the Lake Forest Dentistry office infrastructure also includes a state-of-the-art water purification system and advanced sterilization process to prevent clients from being exposed to life-threatening germs and bacteria during their appointment. 

“When I designed this office, I wanted to proactively establish processes and systems that would ensure our patients can not only maintain the best dental health, but also the highest quality total body wellness,” says Dr. Horanic. “Our VistaClear dental waterline treatment system allows us to do this by eliminating bacteria in the water lines. Featuring a seven-stage filtration process, we can keep our lines sterile to prevent colonies of bacteria from ever developing and deliver the purest water during our procedures.”

In addition to water purification, equipment sterilization is also a priority at Lake Forest Dentistry. 

“Traditional sterilization systems are often plagued by human error, leaving room for bacteria and disease to travel between patients,” Dr. Horanic points out. “Utilizing advanced technology that is monitored online 24/7 by the manufacturer, our STATIM G4 sterilization machines produce real-time analytics, reducing human error and delivering sterilized instruments in               just minutes.”

This commitment to patient care is just one reason patients like Marvin Newman come to Dr. Horanic. 

“This is a dentist who is an exemplary professional. He is also superb in diagnosis, treatment, preventative care, and in every aspect of the practice of dentistry,” Marvin says. “Dr. Horanic is caring, extremely patient and kind, and each member of his staff treats patients and performs their professional responsibilities with excellence and dedication.” 

And, while Lake Forest Dentistry employs the most high-tech equipment to keep patients safe and healthy, Dr. Horanic says there is one simple way to improve your dental health at home: change your toothbrush.

“Switch to one of the new electric toothbrushes which give you immediate feedback from an iPhone or Android app,” he says. “Also, the app will automatically alert you when you need a new brush head, so you no longer have to remember. The app provides immediate feedback to dial in proper brushing pressure for those who brush too hard. You can also keep track of how long your children are brushing!”
