Dental recommendations for west of Chicago

I'm looking for a personal recommendation (i.e. not a yelp listing) for a great adult dentist in the near west burbs of Chicago or even the southwest burbs. So anywhere from Oak Park to Oakbrook and south to Tinley Park. Important: weekend hours, experience, knowledgeable staff, a dentist who won't scold or up-sell. Not important: flat screen television, high tech equipment.

Need to create budget for graphic novel

I'm interested in hiring an illustrator to turn a recently completed screenplay into a graphic novel. Any ideas/resources I can use to create a budget for such a project? I'm looking to come up with a ballpark figure which can be fine-tuned later. Where do I start? The story is set in Los Angeles and the desert Southwest. Any suggestions regarding potential illustrators from that part of the world would be appreciated.

You can't get that from here.

What goodies do we need from Phoenix, AZ? Husband is going there for a few days in July, and we're trying to think of what treats he ought to bring back to New England - stuff we can't find here at home. Cactus Cooler soda and prickly pear jelly/candy are all I can think of. See's Candies would be wonderful, but would not travel well. Any other regional favorites? Thanks in advance!
