ORA® is one of the few facilities in Chicago to offer the i-CAT 3-D digital CAT scan for oral and Maxillofacial imaging. The i-CAT offers the most complete information (and 0.01mm accuracy) on the anatomy of a patient’s mouth, face, and jaw areas. Anatomy we once estimated is now completely visible. This leads to the most accurate diagnosis, treatment planning, minimally invasive procedures, and predictable outcomes for oral and Maxillofacial procedures.

Patients love the i-CAT because it’s more convenient, less costly, and it uses a significantly lower radiation dose compared to traditional hospital-based CAT scan and dental x-ray units. Images produced by the i-CAT reveal medical problems much earlier, when they can’t be seen using conventional x–ray films or two-dimensional imaging equipment. Patients remain seated in an “open environment,” which increases their comfort and captures the natural orientation of anatomy. The digital data is transferred to a computer within one minute, and is displayed on an interactive, 3-D mapping tool that allows us to easily format and select desired regions for immediate viewing. We use the i-CAT with nearly all of our patients and make it available to other doctors that wish to capture the highest-quality images of their patients.

Pleasantly surprised by post-surgery follow up

It was a pleasure to have straight forward information provided and constant follow up after my surgery. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call from Dr. Steven Koos late at night to make sure I was having a healthy recovery. And the cherry on top of the ice cream was how updated the office was. State of the art equipment that I had no doubt I was in good hands.

Great place and great staff.

Great place and great staff. I was well informed about the entire procedure and the follow up process. I also felt very at ease knowing the doctor called me later in the day and him providing me his number in case anything happens.

They took great care of me.

I had an amazing experience. I went in scared and in pain and honestly they took great care of me. I would definitely be going back for any dental need. They are friendly and make you feel at ease.

Earns my trust for comfort and care

I had two implants, a sinus lift and one other procedure within the last year or so. I can’t speak highly enough of Dr. Koos and his staff. I was well informed about my needs and next steps. And more importantly, all went well with very little discomfort. I’m usually a little skiddish when it comes to dental surgery and any associated pain. ORA Oral Surgery & Implant Studio earns my trust for comfort and care.
