Bonding, Fillings and Restorative Dentistry

Over time, maintenance of the health, integrity, and esthetic appearance of our teeth is important to preserve that beautiful smile. Our general dentists are here to not only catch any problems early before they progress, but also treat those issues with the highest quality care. We pride ourselves on being conservative dentists, always practicing minimally-invasive dentistry. All of our crowns and bridges are metal-free and made of porcelain ceramics to offer the best in strength and esthetics. Our practice is built on principles of quality, trust, compassion, and personalized care, and at UAD, our motto is “a good dentist treats the disease, but an exceptional dentist treats the patient with the disease”

Dental Implants

Single Tooth Implants, Snap-On Teeth & All-On-4

You will receive all your care for dental implants and other procedures in one office, from the same team, from the time you walk through our door until you leave as a happier, healthier patient with fully functioning teeth and your brightest smile. All of your maintenance and annual dental care is also right in our office, with doctors and hygienists that you trust. Most implant procedures are completed at the same time that the tooth is removed, replacing a tooth or multiple teeth in one visit. Your experience and care is the most important to us, so we make sure your customized treatment is always thorough, efficient, and comforting.

Start with a complimentary consultation with one of our internationally regarded implant-expert doctors. From there, we will review your best treatment options to address all of your needs and desires, discussing appointment details, financing options, and any questions you have. Redefining the standard of care, we use our innovative 3D imaging to ensure precision and safety for all of your procedures, also allowing most implants to be placed within an hour and only require a local anesthetic.

We pride ourselves on not offering a one-size-fits-all dental care like many of today’s emerging corporate dental chains. With our team all in one location and dedicated to provide the best care to you, we have eliminated the hassle and confusion of coordinating the costs, visits, and communication between multiple offices. Instead, we’ve made it convenient for you to receive only the highest standard of care by experienced team of doctors, all in the comfort of our Chicago office.


UAD doctors understand that simple steps to brighten your smile can significantly change your quality of life, boost your health, and radiate your confidence.

With an expertise and passion for aesthetic dentistry, we apply the same precision and patient-centered care to your cosmetic procedures. In our practice, we maintain special relationships with the most highly-talented ceramists, on both a national and international level, which only benefits our patients to receive the most beautiful results. Our gentle touch, state of the art technology and techniques, and dedication to patient satisfaction will leave you loving not only your result, but your overall experience.


Many patients want straighter teeth without the hassle or appearance of metal braces. UAD’s Dr. Zalay is recognized as a Top Doctor for Invisalign treatment, the most popular clear retainer system that straightens your teeth and smile.  During your complimentary consultation, you will discuss your teeth-straightening options and details of your case, including a estimated treatment time, financing options, and a digital visualization of the planned outcome.

Emergency Care

At UAD, our patients appreciate that our doctors are available for your dental emergencies 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. During office hours, we make ourselves available the same day you call and manage your urgent dental needs in the comfort of our office. Our doctors know that dental emergencies often arise outside of office hours though, and we make ourselves available to immediately relieve you of your dental pain when you need it most.

If you lose a tooth, your bridge falls out, or if you have a challenge that is much more painful or complex, UAD will be here to manage your care.

Let’s face it, tooth aches, infections and injuries can be extremely painful, leading to problems for the teeth and compromising the remaining tooth structure. In times like these, a root canal is often the therapy of choice, as it is a proven and highly successful treatment for removing diseased tissue from the inside of the tooth and quickly eliminating that miserable toothache feeling, all while maintaining the tooth for the future.

Root Canals

“Excellent, caring team.”

“Dr. Marcus listened to my concerns, was able to assess my complicated dental situation, and suggest a reasonable treatment plan.”

- Patty, Chicago patient


Sometimes a tooth is too compromised to be saved, and restoration procedures like root canal therapy, fillings, or crowns are just not enough to predictably save a tooth. In cases like this, the compromised tooth is best removed and replaced to restore the appearance, function, and stability of your teeth. Extractions are a regular procedure that our doctor’s complete with ease on a daily basis, leaving you with minimal discomfort and successful healing.

Sleep is critical to a long, healthy life. Sleep apnea not only interrupts rest, it is a potentially serious disorder that impacts one in six people. If you are over the age of 50, your chances of having sleep apnea may be as high as 50%.

Obstructive sleep apnea is one of the most common and life-threatening sleep disorders, with increased risk for heart attack, stroke and dangerously high blood pressure. People with obstructive sleep apnea stop breathing periodically while sleeping. As the muscles in the back of the throat relax during rest, the tongue and soft tissue block the airway rather than allowing healthy air flow. A sleep apnea sufferer’s slumber might be disrupted hundreds of times a night. To learn more about sleep apnea or how you can overcome your sleep apnea to get a better and healthier night’s sleep, schedule a consultation with Dr. Marcus
