Tip # 1

Read what other people have to say about the dentist before you make your first appointment. Look at their reviews on Yelp! and assess from there. Patients are typically honest about their experiences and it will give you a good starting point to decide which dentist you want to choose.

Tip # 2

Treat choosing a dentist like hiring someone, because you are. You are their customer and it is perfectly okay for you to ask questions and see if the answers fit what you want. It is fine to call the office and ask about insurance and fee scales and treat the phone call like an interview. You can use this information to make a choice you will be comfortable with and is the best fit for you.

Tip # 3

Be sure that you are choosing a dentist based on the services that they offer, most dental groups will have websites where you can check out what services are available. You can also check out other information about the group as well to get a feel for what to expect.  You want to be able to see a dental group that offers some of the latest options in dental care.

Tip # 4

Make an appointment for a consultation and be sure to take any dental records that you have with you, it will make it easier for the new dentist to diagnose and come up with a treatment plan. If you are not comfortable with the practice you do not have to stay with the practice, there are plenty of dentists and you should find one that is the right fit for you. The dental office should be welcoming and make you feel comfortable if they do not find one that does.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
