Professional Statement

Dr. Adelakun grew up in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago and graduated from Roald Amundsen High School with high honors. Continuing his education, he graduated from University of Illinois at Chicago, with a bachelors of science in mechanical engineering and a minor in mathematics. After working several years as a mechanical engineer in the nuclear power plants industry, Dr. Adelakun returned to his alma mater to embark on a new career in dentistry. In 2009, he was awarded his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree by the UIC College of Dentistry.While in dental school, Dr. Adelakun distinguished himself by conducting research on dental materials. In a paper titled, “Tensile, 3 and 4 point bend, bond strength determination,” Dr. Adelakun explored the bond strengths on various composite materials; these restorative materials are widely used in dentistry to replace decayed and missing tooth structures. In addition to excelling in his studies, Dr. Adelakun was among the few top students who were chosen, based on clinical skills, to spend half of his senior year working at low income clinics in the Chicago area instead of working in school. During this time, he did residency in three pediatric and AIDS clinics in Chicago and in Lake County.Dr. Adelakun is very passionate about his profession. He loves the science of dentistry and has traveled all over the nation to continue his education and learn from the best in the field. He is actively pursuing continuing education in the areas of cosmetic dentistry, endodontics, and oral & implant surgery.

I'll get straight to the point-- this was, by far, the worst experience I've ever had with a dentist. For context, this was a filling for two teeth. Dr. Adelakun continually knocked his instruments against my other teeth, could not get the numbing agent to work correctly (and subsequently I was in a great deal of pain-- to the point of tears during one of the fillings), and had an unapologetic, very robotic bedside manner. Granted- my jaw doesn't open quite as wide as most people's, however the least he could have done was talked me through the procedures and apologized when I was at the point of tears due to the pain.

He was fantastic. I am extremely afraid of dentist visits from really bad past experiences but he rolled with it. He was very professional, very friendly, and his staff were also extremely nice and professional. I have a ton of work to do (cavities and then eventually wisdom teeth) with him, but so far I like everything about the location and the staff. Everything is clean and modern. Its kind of rare for dentist offices and I have no idea why. Good choices from dr. adelakun all around.

My husband and my visit with Dr. Adelakun was stellar. His office is ADORABLE, serves coffee/water and has a lovely and functional waiting room space (can't say the same for every doc/dentist I've visited- it matters!) and the dental rooms were comfortable with TVs! The dental assistants were very sweet, as well. We are new regulars for our monthly cleanings! We were won over!

Dr. Adelakun and Melanie are awesome! They used a Cavitron for my cleaning, which was super quick and totally painless. It had been awhile since my last cleaning and unfortunately, in my mid 20s, I had the first cavity of my life. The filling took no time at all, and there was no discomfort or downtime. Love Lakeview Dental. Thanks Dr. A!

I really enjoy going to this dentist office, but I'm super disappointed with the front office. I've had two issues with scheduling. Once I scheduled an appointment on Saturday morning, but it turns out the office wasn't open that day. That appointment was scheduled on the phone. I scheduled another appointment to get my wisdom teeth extracted. That also meant I arranged time off work and canceled plans for the weekend. I got a call that there was a scheduling conflict, and that the office would also be closed that day. I'm sorry. I think I'm going to have to find another dentist. This isn't acceptable. I've not had this problem with any other providers.

Made a last minute appointment, got in early and he saw me right away. His assistant is amazing as well. She had already looked up my insurance, took x-rays and explained the process to me. Dr. Adelakun was awesome. I was given a treatment plan that worked for me. He was easily accessible after hours as well as replied to my emails quickly when I had issues with the medication. Definitely recommend and continue going there.

He explained the problems and laid out a course of action. The actionable items could be broken up into multiple times of completion. I liked that aspect of the treatment.
