What we are doing to make our office safer regarding COVID-19...
We will start seeing patients on June 1, 2020 but are limiting how many patients can be in our office at any one time. Call our office (847-564-9115) from the parking lot to let us know that you have arrived. We will let you know if we are ready for you to come in or should wait in your car and we will call you when we are ready to see you. We encourage all family members to remain in their cars while the patient is being taken care of. If you have any questions about the appointment, feel free to call our office.
If you are sick, do not come to our office. Always sterilize your hands upon entering our office. Patients must brush their teeth at home. Everyone must wear a mask when entering our office. Our staff is wearing masks and eyewear to protect themselves while they work on the patients as well as following the same hand washing/sterilization regimen as we ask of our patients and their families.
We will keep you informed about any changes as they arise.
STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY!

Dr. Kaspers will be on the road again...he is going to Detroit to make another presentation regarding 3 D imaging and condylar positions.
In September, Dr. Kaspers lectured to other orthodontists showing them how a CBCT scan can help orthodontists diagnose their patients more accurately than with 2D radiographs. He will show the clinician the importance of addressing the vertical dimension to enable the patient to achieve a seated condylar position at the end of orthodontic treatment.
Dr. Kaspers has been busy teaching students on how to accurately treat and diagnose patients to have a balanced occlusion. His hope is for all patients to avoid TMJ issues-lock jaw, breakdown of teeth, bone and gums, as well as headaches. Dr. Kaspers last spoke to a group of students in St. Louis, MO on March 9, 2018.
Dr. Kaspers spoke at the Midwest Dental Meeting in Chicago on February 22, 2018. Many dental professionals came to the Kavo Kerr booth to find out what he had to say.
Dr. Kaspers taught a class at Case Western University in Ohio. His hope is that the new class of orthodontists will be knowledgable on treating patients to avoid TMD problems in the future. He will also be leading a seminar in St. Louis in March. He will be discussing how to transition an orthodontic practice from 2D imaging to 3D imaging.
Dr. Kaspers spoke at a professional seminar on Friday, September 29, 2017 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Des Plaines. The seminar focused on transitioning orthodontic practices from 2D imaging to 3D imaging as well as the advantages that 3D imaging offers to the orthodontic specialty.
WE HAVE NOTICED A PATTERN AMONGST OUR PATIENTS.....HOLIDAY FOODS FOLLOWED BY BROKEN BRACKETS AND BENT WIRES. PLEASE BE CAREFUL!
Smile! According to a sudy in Psychological Science, participants who were assigned to stressful tasks recovered from the stress faster when the tasks were done while the participant was smiling!
Dr. Kaspers spoke in San Diego, CA on April 20, 2017. The program was about how to use 3D technology to achieve a seated condylar position for accurate clinical diagnosis and treatment. He has already heard from other dentists that would like him to speak at their study clubs!
Dr. Kaspers spoke at the 3-D Congress in Las Vegas on March 9-11, 2017. He discussed his desire to help the dental/orthodontic profession understand the advantages of the CBCT scan machine so that diagnosis of orthodontic cases can be made more easily and more accurately.
Why did the vampire go to the orthodontist?
****** To improve his bite!!!!!
Dr. Kaspers is featured in the Dental Products Report magazine. The article is about how the I-Cat 3D imaging helped diagnose and correct constricted airways for a patient, her siblings and her father. The family is relieved knowing that Dr. Kaspers is taking care of health issues that may happen when the children grow older as well as straightening teeth.
