"Best dentist appointment ever! I have a long horrible dental history, most of my own doing. So when I go to a dentist, I get really nervous. Alejandro saw this right away and throughout the whole appointment made sure I was confocomfor and kept me distracted. Not that he wasn't super gentle the whole time, because he was. I go back in December and am just fine with that."

"The best experience at a dental office. The receptionist were polite and great at explaining everything regarding your bill. The dentist made sure I didn't feel a thing and that I was comfortable and understood what was being done to my mouth. They even gave a courtesy call to check up on how I was doing the next day. I highly recommend this office and especially doctor Patel."

"My experience at dental works was life changing.!!!!!!!! I had a terrible experience with my previous dentist who butchered my mouth. And the very first visit at Dental works Forest Park completely erased that fear. I was warmly greeted ( reception staff is incredible). Every thing was explained in detail. I was given several options concerning my treatment plan and my financial needs. When it came to the actual procedures they were very comforting making sure I wasn't in any pain. Even offering comforting words when I seemed anxious. It took years for me to trust another dentist and I am so grateful I found Dr. Patel and the staff here. Now I can face the world with my beautiful new smile.!!!!!!"

"This team is awesome. After having a bad experience at another Dental Works in Aurora I was quite skeptical to stay with the same company and actually almost left after receiving unexpected information after arriving. The manager of the Dental Works at Harlem and Both was very accommodating and understanding. She took her time to explain things to me and answered all my questions. She made me feel comfortable. I feel the same about the surgeon and the administrative and support staff. They were all so great. They gave me two times the information that I needed to make an informed decision than the Aurora, IL location, their customer service was 10 times better than the location in Aurora, and their knowledge was 10 times better than Aurora. To top it all off, the manager was able to financially relieve me of some financial stress, which eased my mind a ton. Her going over and beyond for me literally almost made me cry right in the office. I would recommend them anytime! Andie B."

"They were caring, efficient and considerate. The doctor was extremely knowledgeable and empathetic. They desk staff was approachable and kind but the opening they seat at allows the patients to hear their conversations which was somewhat of a private matter and we as the patients should not here them. Also they should not eat their lunch out in the open where they greet patients. However the front desk was still very professional when interacting with patients."

"I love the doctors I have delt with 2 in the last few years. I am usually very happy with the whole staff they are friendly and make me feel comfy. No one I know likes to go to the dentist but I dont mind coming here even when there is an issue. However the last couple times I called I spoke with a new person I was unfamiliar  with. She was cold and unfriendly and made me not feel so comfy. When I did get there I listened to her on the phone with another patient and said eww that's the one from the phone. Later I questioned  one of the assistants as to who the new gal is she needs a few classes on being friendly as it is an important part of the job especially when you are at the the front desk. I then found out she was a new manager. I was shocked and this made me feel uncomfy. I had the feeling some of the staff were not their happy selves. Perhaps she should be in another field of management not dealing with the public."

"I went in about a week ago after not visiting the dentist for a few years. I knew I had at least 1 cavity because I could see it and it had been causing me pain for a while. Turned out I had 4 ): I made an appointment for an exam and cleaning and ended up being able to get all 4 fillings done in the same visit (they weren't very busy the day I was in only 2 other patients that I saw)  I am very happy with the results! No more pain with just the fillings which was a huge relief because I was worried that I was going to need a root canal. I would give this location (more specifically Dr. Thind) 5 stars except for the fact that she mentioned something about giving me free teeth whitening gel with custom trays which I did not receive. The gentleman that went over my insurance coverage and my out of pocket costs was very nice and broke down the cost by procedure. I have to go back this week to have 2 impacted wisdom teeth removed so I will update my review after that. The only other complaint I have is that the oral surgeon is only at this location 1 day a month which isn't very convenient. I am also a little wary about getting surgery (even if its just wisdom teeth removal) in the basement of sears but based on my previous experience I think it will go well."
