Statistics prove time and again that those of us who smile a lot enjoy better overall health along with social and professional success. The opposite is true, unfortunately, for people with persistent tooth, gum or bite problems as poor dental health is linked to an array of negative quality-of-life indicators including sleep disorders, diabetes and heart disease.

When you need a smart, compassionate dental team, contact Crystal Family Dental Care at (815) 893-6345 or send an email to cfdcdesk@gmail.com.
