It's widely known that people have more motivation to leave negative reviews then people do for good service. And common sense tells you no matter where you go, there are going to be mess ups & upset people. It happens at the best of hospitals and offices. Despite my knowledge of that, I admit I was a nervous wreck going here. I had to travel from the far northwest suburbs, away from my nice dentist offices I am used to because the government cut funding and I needed to get my tooth extracted and no one closer would do it for me. So already upset about that, the reviews on every website didn't help.When I first called them, they got me in two days later. Upon going in, I really didn't see how it was so dirty as other people have said. It's an older Chicago building. A good paint job could be had, but honestly this was nice compared to a dentist I even had out here. Inside the rooms, everything was bright and in their sterile packaging.There were many people waiting, and it was a bit tough to get the staff to hand me a pencil to sign in, but that was it. They got me back pretty quick for an x-ray (First time I ever had one that circled around my head and take it, as opposed to taking a bunch of pictures)Went back to the waiting room, and then was called in about 5 minutes later. What I realized is if you had an appointment, you did step in front of all the walk-ins.Dr. W. and her two assistants that helped were beyond kind, and trying to put me at ease. The extraction was super fast and painless after the Novocaine shots. It took longer for her to ask me if there was a way I can find money for a root canal, because she didn't want me to just lose a tooth if I didn't have to. But until I get a job I couldn't, but I thought it was nice of her to try to explore that option with me first. Within an hour I was in and out with a package of gauze, instructions and pain medications. My train ride there was longer then that.My experience was really good, and I wish more people would leave good comment so not everyone is scared away.

I have always been afraid of going to the dentist for some weird reason and I can honestly say my previous experiences have been rather unpleasant to say the least. But my teeth were at such horrible condition that they either had to be fixed or taken out at the age of 25. So I called my friend who’s father is dentist and he suggested I book an appointment with their office immediately before the things get any worse. So I decided to give Brickyard a try and booked an appointment to come to the Island and get this done. Because I live in Vancouver and it is hard for me to commute, the receptionist was kind enough to book me in for a longer appointment and since I explained the situation the wait wasn’t to bad either. When I got there I was welcomed with the friendliest staff who offered me tea/coffee among other treats. The wait wasn’t too long to see Dr. Feizi but while waiting I was extremely worried about the whole thing. They took x-rays and did a full check up before I sat on his chair. I felt confortable right away and he perfectly explained the procedure after reviewing my file, said he was glad I’m treating it early before it turned to a nasty infection and even explained the costs. I literally DID NOT even feel the injection and after that everything went easy and smooth, although it took much longer than I anticipated. It was a rather time consuming getting to the Island it self, but it was definitely worth it. I booked my next appointment with the people up front and for the first time I actually look forward going back to see my dentist.

Dr. Kenneth Szurgot, DDS
Going to the dentist can be fun??? Lincoln Park dental practice offering cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign, exceptional hygiene care, and more! I have known Dr. Szurgot for over ten years. He is a highly skilled, personable, honest, and gifted dentist. From a patient's perspective, I can attest to receiving the highest quality of dental care available in the city. He is timely, precise, friendly, and always explains the recommended treatment and corresponding fees before anything is done. Any concerns, issues, or problems are addressed professionally and honestly. His staff is outgoing, fun, and make visiting the dental office worthwhile. Let's face it...no one enjoys sitting in the dental chair, but Dr. Szurgot, Karen, and staff make your time there pleasant and comfortable. I trust them with my dental needs and concerns as well as those of all of my friends and family. Exceptional experiences, caring, compassionate...you wont be disappointed. Reasonable treatment fees, accepts insurance and willing to work with your time/work constraints. Highly recommend! Be sure to speak with Rui (pronounced Roo-ee) when scheduling your appointments--he will go above and beyond the call of duty to meet your time requirements. They are even open on some Saturdays...perfect for all of us who are too busy during the week. You will leave this office feeling like part of their family! ***For those of you that love shoes, this office is located above Slithers on Clark--the most reasonable and affordable shoe store in Lincoln Park!

Dan B., 02/19/2015EditBeen going here for around 12 years. Not a big fan of dentist really either. But the staff was very nice upon my first time visiting. Of course You need a cleaning and X-rays first. I for one was like ok whatever. My hygienist was named Cheryl, before I met her I asked the girls up front even if a cleaning was necessary. They chuckled and told me Cheryl was very thorough. I was like um ok what does that mean. When I got back there probably one of the most nicest people I met. Before we even started the cleaning and xrays she said just let them know if I am uncomfortable at anytime and they will stop. Well Cheryl started her work and to my surprise, any time she thought there would be something she gave me a heads up. She cleaned my teeth like an artist painting a picture. When everything was said and done, BAM, super clean teeth, and a fresh new smile. Everything went very well, and you would of thought I had brand new teeth when I was done. And she even explained things to help protect my teeth and gums before my next visit. What also helped is the explanation of everything they were saying and doing. I will say again I do not like dentist but seeing Cheryl and the rest of the staff, I don't mind at all. Great People, helping me keep a great smile.

Family Dental is a great place to go and have your teeth worked on. From the very start of my visit to the last everyone is helpful, patient and kind. There are smiles on all the employees faces and a cheerful greeting as well. Dr. Chris is my dentist and he is wonderful! I had to go in because of some tooth pain and was told I needed a root canal. The specialist Dr. Rogers happened to be working that day and he was fantastic. Dr. Rogers fit me into his work day and didn't make me set up another appointment. This was great news because I live a good distance away and had to go in between school and work. I didn't feel any pain and he was done very quickly explaining what would be happening every step of the way. After you have left the dentist there are follow up calls to check on how you feel and to remind you of any appointments that need to be made. I highly recommend Family Dental to anyone looking for a dentist office that puts their patients first and goes the extra mile to make sure that the dental experience has been a good one.

Millennium Park Dermatology Sc
I travel a lot on business in the US and abroad which means I've been to a lot of dentists. They've been well-meaning and good dentists. But Dr. Stephen Gordon's practice stands out head and shoulders. I've gone to his practice and that of his father before him for many years and received the most thorough and knowledgeable treatment possible. Dr. Gordon always has the newest equipment and is always up on the latest dental technology. You leave pain at the door when you enter his office. As a devout coward, I couldn't believe how painless he makes removing decay, etc. His staff is wonderful. I've called his assistant Sheri long distance to get advice on insurance papers, etc. and received the best information and caring help possible. Teeth cleaning a bother? Not a problem when Kyle in Dr. G's office cleans your teeth. I sound like a commercial but going to the dentist used to scare me to death...until I started going to Dr. Gordon's office years ago.

I came to Family Dental Care because my crown fell off, and I was terrified to go to the dentist after my last experience with another one I was seeing prior. It had actually been a while since I had been since the last time mainly because of my fear. I came into the office and the staff from the moment I walked in to the moment I walked out from my appointment were so friendly and caring. I was so shaken up and so incredibly nervous, but they were understanding and worked me through everything. They explained everything to me step by step. After going to a few visits my nerves have gradually seized. I am no longer afraid to go to the dentist and am very thankful to have found this office to help me with my dental needs. Since I have been going to see Dr. Chris whom I absolutely love, my teeth are seeing better days. I highly recommend Family Dental Care if you are looking for a great dentist! The service all together was fantastic!

Printers Row Dentistry
Ok, so I don't like going to the Dentist, I had received Printers Row Dentistry postcards for years, I didn't respond until this year. I am in the Public eye all the time. I had missing teeth on the bottom that I was not happy with. I went into see Dr. Page, he assured me he could make me a beautiful smile. I was still scared because I hate pain. Well I have completed my first round to a beautiful smile and I am so pleased, I could cry. I had no pain and I an so pleased to have met Dr. Page. He is very perfessional and he knows his work and he loves his work. If you have been putting off going to the dentist. I recommend you meet Dr. Page, Rachel & Sandra. They will take Good Care of You. This is True and I am very Happy to have my Smile Back again. Jackie G.
Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
