Meet Sara Helmi, DDS Dentist

headshot of our dentist, Dr. Sara HelmiPlease, take a moment to get to know Dr. Helmi below and give her a warm welcome!

A healthy smile not only allows one to have the ability to obtain the right diet for overall health and well being but also brings about confidence. Dr. Helmi believes that there are three aspects to overall oral health;

  • Healthy Teeth
  • Healthy Gums
  • Most importantly a healthy bite/ occlusion.

In an attempt to focus on educating patients and correcting their occlusion (bite), Dr. Helmi has proudly transformed many smiles with Invisalign aligners. Malocclusion could lead to issues such as damaged teeth, teeth sensitivity, jaw pain and much more. Prevention is key to lifelong oral health. Your oral health is important to us. We are confident that when you come to our dental office in Gurnee, IL, not only will you be provided the highest quality of care but you will also feel as if you are a part of our family.
