We Care

As a dentist in our intimate boutique setting, Dr. Widen and Nichole can take care of the dental needs of our guests and make sure they are comfortable during their procedures. Unlike most dentists, at Widen Your Smile, formerly Halsted Dental Aesthetics, we run on time! Please don’t confuse us with Halsted Street Dental down the block. This is one of the many features that makes our Chicago dental office unique! You will love the undivided attention you get during your visit. Dr. Widen remains with our guests until they are completed with their daily treatment. Furthermore, we will help you receive the dental insurance benefits you are entitled to and fill out all the necessary forms. 

The smiles and hugs we receive after a completed case reflects the quality and dedication that our office provides to our guests. We use only the best dental materials and dental supplies for your treatment and are trained far beyond most general dentists in the art and science of general, implant and cosmetic dentistry and non-surgical TMJ/TMD therapy. This allows us to help you achieve the beautiful, comfortable, natural smile you desire.

If you are looking to have a great healthy smile, you have found your dentist, don’t hesitate and give us a call at 312-266-0044. We look forward to helping you achieve the smile you always wanted!
