‘‘I strongly believe everyone deserves the best dentistry has to offer. My philosophy is simple: Give you the same treatment I would give my mom (and I love my mom!).

It's important to me to have you in charge of your treatment decisions. I inform, advise, and then we work together to get you to optimal, long-lasting health.’’

Tayyabba Athar, D.D.S.

Attentive

"Providing you with the best care starts the moment you step through the door. Typically, I will show you around the office, listen to your concerns, and answer any questions you may have."

Skilled

"I adore all aspects of general dentistry, but mostly I relish the joy it brings to others when they see their reinvigorated smile for the first time. This is why I dedicate myself to so many hours of continued education and hone my skills, so patients get the best results possible."

Well-rounded

"When I'm not in the office, I spend my time reading, volunteering in my community, playing video games, and relaxing with my friends and family. I'm a huge Chicago sports fan (Go Bulls!), and I have a Terrier named Buddy who keeps me on my toes!"

 

‘‘Unfortunately, I needed a root canal, but fortunately, Dr. Athar at Westgate Dental was the one to do it. The procedure was painless and done with the expertise one would expect to find with an endodontist that does them every day. Glad I found Westgate Dental - they exceed my expectations.’’

Why I love being a dentist.

‘‘

I love being a dentist because it allows me to work with my hands and be creative in a controlled way. Every day, I get to help people and improve their lives; it's a mental and physical challenge that makes me feel great at the end of the day.

Helping others as a dentist has many intangible rewards. The joy that comes with giving a patient their smile back or the ability to chew food again cannot be measured.
