    First, here are my recommendations (I tried to put a positive spin) 1) Be professionals, learn to introduce yourself and explain what is going to happen, share findings, recommendation and next steps. 2) train your team to use proper techniques, develop finger/hands skills or whatever is that you need to use the tools in a proper way. Evaluate how your team does certain procedures, keep the bar high, keep them trained. 3) Do not dismiss patients' pain, concerns, fears, etc. You do this every day, patients sometimes see you because they have no other choice. 4) You are a business and you try to get more procedures to generate revenue, but put the patients care and needs first. Here is a summary of my experience: Sadly, I did not have a good experience. I have had many deep cleanings due to gingivitis and tartar buildup , so I had experienced skilled dentist professionals that have mastered the techniques, with soft fingers and hands that pay attention to details and are able to do this type of work with care and without inflicting unnecessary pain. But in this case, it was not only excruciatingly painful, but it was done so rough and without any care....then I heard I was the last appointment of the day (Friday), which may explain why they were in such a hurry. I think a dentist came (I am not sure, she never introduced herself...funny, nobody introduced themselves....front desk was the exception, they were super nice) , but only checked my teeth for 20 seconds, and I asked about any cavities or the situation with my gingivitis, but I only got was a sales pitch about doing some kind of cosmetic procedure to close the gap of my front teeth, because and I quote "You don't have a pleasant smile". I was baffled, not offended, but baffled that they would say such things to a patient. I asked again about the conditions of my teeth, cavities, gingivitis, etc. But the Doctor (I think she was a DDS) continued with her sales pitch about the cosmetic procedure. At the end, I was supposed to get some kind of recommendations for care, a special tooth paste to reduce gum inflammation, but I got nothing. Only a horrible experience.

    Downtown Dental has been my primary dental care for the last 7 years since I moved to Chicago. They have been excellent and I've honestly never had an issue! Dr. Borga is absolutely amazing - so kind, considerate and helpful with all of my questions! Michael who has done my cleaning is very thorough and explain the importance of practicing great dental hygiene. I'd 100% recommend them to anyone!

    Best dentist in the city. The staff is very accomodating, willing to help, and knowledgeable. They are very easy to reach. I'm really thankful for all the help they provide keeping my teeth healthy and I would recommend them to anyone.

    This place has gone way down hill since COVID. Their only redeeming qualities are the nice views and the wonderful desk staff. I've been coming to DD for years prior to COVID and had a wonder male dentist do my original veneers, using very sheer brand that break easily. They have chipped over the years and he always graciously replaced them for free. Well it's 2022 and I've been in a bike accident and chipped the front two. My dentist is no longer with DD, sadly, so I was made to pay $2k out of pocket for replacement veneers. I was then told I would need to wait 2 weeks for them (while wearing these hideously done temps). Well it's 2 weeks and I get a call saying they don’t know when they will arrive (literally call the lab? do something?). Will not be coming back here after this treatment process is complete (not that I know when that will be)

    Have been with DD for almost 8 years now... Top notch dentists, latest equipment and no hassles with insurance till date.. Biggest draw is they are upfront and honest about complications and surgeries etc...The same cannot be said for many other dentists that we have encountered in the suburbs and the city
