Alexis’s office is super modern and fresh. They even have tv’s in the room where you get x-rays done so you can watch whatever you want. I had a filling that had to be re-done and she performed the fix super quick and totally painless. 100% recommend.

I truly was pleased with my experience with Dr. Youn. I showed up earlier and they got me right in and out. The cleaning took less than 30 minutes. The place is modern and clean. I felt taken care of andtrust that her and the technician knew what they were doing/ talking about. I look forward to going back for my 6 month cleaning :)

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.

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 ina half hour. The whole process was completely painless. Her staff are also fantastic and the facilities are prestine. Would very highly recommend.

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 aboutyour 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 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 atmy 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 shedid 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 didan 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.

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 thatneeded 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!

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.
