Dr. Marinic is a trusted, knowledgeable dentist. He has been treating cold sores since 1993 with laser treatment. In general, the laser is used without anesthesia and can treat most common forms of cold sores and oral herpes. If caught in the early stages of an outbreak, cold sores can be stopped from continuing, and in many cases may never return in that site again!

Daniel Marinic, DDS, FAGD, has been providing high-quality dental services in Evanston for over 26 years.

No need to be embarrassed anymore with the Siro Laser.

Convenient, swift treatment

Cold sores can be a regular nuisance for you. There isn’t an actual cure for them but there is a solution to managing and reducing the symptoms and frequency. They are called fever blisters as well. They pop up around the lip/mouth area and look swollen and irritated. In the case of cold sores the timing of the treatment makes a difference in the outcome. The virus resides in the nerve endings. The most effective time for treatment is during the first 24-48 hours of the symptoms, usually noticeable by the “tingling sensation”. In the majority of cases, treatment at this time prevents the virus from continuing to duplicate. In many cases the lesion NEVER recurs in this site! Dr. Marinic has had many patients who have not had an outbreak for 18 years.

When Bette retired from teaching a few years ago, she knew that it was time for her to pursue her dream of an acting career. She started taking acting classes and performing in local theatre productions, but she felt that what she really needed to boost her confidence was a smile makeover.

Dr. Marinic was very happy to help Bette achieve her goals with high-quality porcelain veneers. He designed them carefully to make sure that they would look beautiful and natural.

Bette loves her new smile! She's been in several television commercials now, and is living her dream of being a professional actress.
