Verified Patient Reviews
I was reluctant to visit as I had neglected my teeth for years and had terrible build up of tartar. I was seen promptly, no waiting time at all and her staff were extremely friendly and polite. The office is bright, clean and very modern. I had a new patient exam and had a root scale and polish to remedy my smile. I am absolutely delighted with the results and am will be back within the week to have my cavities taken care of. I can not recommend Dr Youn highly enough. She is a real credit to the industry.
Alexis was a great doctor. very informational and friendly.
My visit was great. Super nice and very professional. Very modern and fast!
Excellent bedside manner Demonstrates legitimate empathy Hires professional and friendly staff
Dr. Youn is wonderful! Very friendly, professional, very considerate of my comfort. I would highly recommend her. Her office staff is wonderful, too. They are all so polite and considerate.
I admittedly hadn't been to the dentist in a few years after moving to Chicago and Dr. Youn made the experience surprisingly pleasant. Went back after my teeth cleaning to have a few cavities filled and was in and out in a half hour. The whole process was completely painless. Her staff are also fantastic and the facilities are prestine. Would very highly recommend.
She's great and very detail let me know all the work that I need as well as the price so glad I went here...
Dr. Youn is very personable and wonderful at explaining everything. I would recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Youn is the best dentist I've found in Chicago. She is great at explaining the details of the work that's being done to your teeth without dumbing down explanations or being patronizing. She's quick to answer any detailed questions about your oral health. She also takes great effort in being as transparent as possible in explaining the details of your bill and how insurance fits in - patient transparency is key!
I love it!! My daughter is 4years old and she was nervous but Dr. Youn made her feel comfortable
Great visit - friendly, accommodating and netflix at your chair was a nice perk.
She was great! Very friendly, informative, and professional. The office was clean and new. I didn't have to wait at all.
Awesome as always! Thank you!
It was my first time visiting Dr. Youn. The office is extremely clean, bright and welcoming. Everyone there was very friendly, efficient and communicated well. I was in and out in 20 minutes (x-rays + cleaning) and watched Netflix while I was in the chair - it was great! Definitely going back, and would recommend her and her staff to anyone looking for a dentist!
Another awesome dental experience! Quick and painless.
Awesome visit! Been avoiding the dentist because it's always been a horrible experience. I will make it every 6 months now ??
Dr.Youn is the most professional, thoughtful dentist I have ever dealt with. Cannot wait to continue working with her!
My apointment was fantastic! Quick and painless and Dr. Youn is so nice. Certainly the best dental apointment I've had. I will be back and refer friends!
I had not been to the dentist in so long but scheduling an appointmemt as a new patient was so easy! The staff are very friendly and I received prompt care for my teeth. I left feeling great and wishing I had been coming here since I moved to Chicago. I'll be going back for another cleaning soon.
Dr. Youn was personable and professional. Once I arrived, I was seen right away and the overall aesthetic of the office was pleasing. She was quickly able to answer all my questions, elaborating on many areas, and provided me with a comprehensive understanding of my overall dental health and treatment plan. I will be recommending Dr. Youn to family and friends!
I had the last appointment of the day so I was seen right away. Dr. Youn is very professional and asked several times if I had any questions. She patiently answered and explained everything. She reviewed my xrays and looked at my teeth and recommended a treatment plan for me. She knew my insurance deductible and recommended the treatment plan based on it. I've never had a dentist take time to explain everything so thoroughly. Going to the dentist can be a nerve-wracking experience but Dr. Youn goes out of her way to make you comfortable. Loved my experience and I recommend her to anyone in the neighborhood looking for a friendly dentist.
Doctor Youn was super nice and knowelegible. She had no problem answering my questions, explaining what needs to be done and also she gave me the breakdown what is going to be covered by insurance and what won't be before she did any work. Her assistant and the reception staff was super nice and professional as well. I am glad I found my new dentist. Highly recommend.
Dr. Youn and her dental hygienist were both excellent. I thought they were very personable, professional, and approachable. The Netflix at each chair is a nice perk that I didn't even realize I wanted, but definitely appreciated. Dr. Youn did an excellent job of thoroughly explaining everything she was doing and making sure I understood. My wait time was essentially the amount of time it took me to fill out new patient forms once I walked in. I would (and already have) absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a dentist in West Town.
Very quick visit. Lots of open scheduling. Renovated office. Highly recommend.
Very efficient and friendly staff and doctor. Transparent with care and pricing. Highly recommend.
very thorough. explained everything she was going to do beforehand. the office itself, modern, new and clean. helpful front desk staff. very pleasant experience.
Awesome experience for our little one.
I would highly recommend her.
Great appointment. I had been dreading going to the Dentist for years, but Dr. Youn made my first appointment easy. She is very knowledgable and worked efficiently. I had to return for cavity filling and it was easy and not painful. The office is really nicely set up and very clean. She is HIGHLY recommended, I will not delay returning for my regular cleanings.
Doctor Alexis was very prompt and courteous. She explained everything that she was doing and why which I always appreciate! Also a plus having a TV with netflix in the room!
I'm ashamed to admit, it's been many years since I've last seen a dentist. If I had known there were dentists like Dr. Youn, I wouldn't have waited so long between visits. I had multiple cavities and a deep cleaning that needed to get done, and it was so painless. Dr. Youn and her staff were amazing. I believe her assistant's name is Rosa, and she couldn't have been more kind and patient during my visit. I have to go back in for a few more cavities after the new year, and for the first time, I'm not dreading my trip to the dentist. Thank you Dr. Youn and staff!
Very pleased. Was able to get in same day for emergency. Very courteous and very nice office.
Doctor Alexis and her staff was incredibly helpful and professional. They took the time to ask me about my insurance, provide guidance, and to help me make the best decisions based on my situation. It's great to meet a doctor who truly cares about her patient's outcomes and Im very glad I came in
Dr. Youn was amazing! When I stepped through the door, all of her employees were friendly and made sure I was comfortable right away. The Ukrainian village location is brand new and super clean! Xrays, cleaning, and my first filling went great. She made sure I was comfortable the whole time and her communication skills were very clear and concise. Dr. Youn is great!
I have been visiting Dr. Youn for over a year now. She is super patient and she makes sure you are comfortable with the procedures she perform. I am impressed with the work she does and the customer service is amazing!!
It was great! Super helpful and had my best interest in mind.
Dr. Youn was really good. She explained everything perfectly and the treatment also was perfect.
Dr. Youn is very thorough! Super police and sweet.... the office is very clean and such friendly staff
Dr. Youn has a good professional manner and clearly made an effort to do a through dental examination and explain her actions and observations. I would certainly see her again and recommend her to others.
Very detailed, easy to talk to, made you feel very comfortable to be at the dentist.
Completely unprofessional. AVOID SEEING HER. I saw Dr. Youn and she recommended a two part treatment for a cracked tooth that I completely agreed with. After confirming my second appointment (and she also confirmed, according to management) she submitted a letter of resignation in the middle of the night, hours before my appointment. Any doctor who abandons her patients and leaves them high and dry mid-treatment deserves to have their license revoked. Such a disappointment and I'm left scrambling to find someone else to finish my treatment.
Going to the dentist is rarely enjoyable but I can honestly say that Dr. Youn and her staff go ahove and beyond to make your dental visit as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. From sunglasses so the light doesn't hurt your eyes to chapstick for your dry lips! I highly recommend Dr. Youn!
Hadn't been to a dentist in almost 5 years. Dr. Youn was very warm and professional, while still detailing the work I need done clearly in detail. Going back for some fillings and to have a broken retainer removed next week. I'll be back every six months instead of every 5 years. Thanks, Dr. Youn!
Alexis is fantastic. I was worried because I've neglected going to the dentist for a few years, and she was completely honest with my check-up. If you're looking for a great, caring dentist This place is a must!!!
Top notch service. Professional and personable.
Dr. Youn was personable and professional. Everything was quick, but I also felt like she took the time to make sure I was comfortable. I will be recommending her!
Good: Decent bedside manner, attentive and thorough Bad: Cares more about about profits than a patient
Very Informative and Comforting
Another great experience with the Dr. Youn. I had 3 fillings and the entire process, including check in/out, took 45 mins tops. I've had consistent and positive experiences with Dr. Youn and her staff. Highly recommend!
Kind, professional, precise and timely!
I visited Alexis Youn yesterday and was very impressed. It was for a checkup and cleaning and what I thought were 2 problems with molars. Turns out they were both minor issues that she fixed during the appointment. First off, it was very convienent, I work downtown and was able to walk 3-4 blocks and get back to my office within an hour. As a new patient I had to complete insurance forms which I did on a laptop that only took a few minutes. When I was done she was ready to see me. Overall I have been to many different dentists and with Alexis I felt more comfortable and at ease than with the others. She is very professonal and patient taking the time to explain each problem and potential problem and offered recommendations and alternatives. I have already scheduled my next appointment and can say with certainty I have found my new dentist Dr Youn!
It was a very pleasant experience Dr. Youn is very professional and thorough in her explanations. I just found my new regular dentist!
Dr. Youn and her staff were so friendly and attentive. Really can't say enough nice things. I was in and out of there quickly (went on my lunch break, so that was ideal) and she stopped during the exam/cleaning several times to be sure I was comfortable and to ask if I had any questions.
Great visit, highly recommend.
Oh my! My visit was memorable, I learned that the sudden pain was due to an infection in a previous root canal and three impacted molars. Dr. Youn was great! She was was very attentive and did her best to lessen any pain, however, there is only so much any one can do with medical concern that I had. I will be back for a follow-up. She and her staff, again were excellent. Note to anyone reading this... Don't ignore the pain, go to the dentist right away.
I didn't want to go to the dentist. I had not been in years, but going to her has made all my fears leave. She was awesome. Lady T
Very professional, quick, and overall the best experience I've had going to a dentist!
She was very professional and made you feel at ease. Everyone was very nice!
My visit with Dr.Young and staff was a great day.

Very understanding with my child. Educated me and my daughter on what has to be done and assured my daughter that she will be in good hands. Considerate and compassionate. Daughter number 1

It was pretty cool. She was very nice and helpful. I'm glad to have her as my new dentist.
Fist time visiting this office. The employees were pleasent and nice. The doctor came right in introduced herself and and got right to business, they did not let me leave without knowing what I needed done right away and how important it was. I even got names and numbers of dentist that I needed to go to. I will definately be recommending this facilty to everyone I know.
she was very nice and informative. she showed me she really loves what she does and care about not only the health of your teeth but your health overall. she noticed that my daughter nasal passage was blocked because of how she was breathing. I told her she has allergies and sinus problems but she was concerned and recommended that my child see an ENT specialist. She also made my child as comfortable as possible after knowing she had a hard time breathing through her nose.She did great job on filling all 6 of my child's cavities without discomfort. So i made appt to ENT and she was diagnosed with nasal polyps and is receiving treatment. Thanks Dr Youn. If it wasn't for Dr Youn she would of still be getting misdiagnosed by her primary care physician.All along my child was getting treated for wrong thing. No wonder her sinus problems never went away. I learned a big lesson that day.
It was a great my kids was very comfortable with her and she answered questions very thoroughly.
Alexis Youn, DDS was precise and efficient.
It was great. Not many dentist wanted to see me because i'm pregnant and her staff was extremely pleasant. Alexis Youn was great, explained everything to me and less than the hour i was out of the clinic. i would highly recommend her to anyone.
It was very professional. She was very informative about what was going on, and she offered options.
My daughter jahzara was very comfortable unlike other dental offices. Very good experience.
