I decided to change my dentist mostly out of convenience because of the close proximity to my home. I am soglad I did because this was one of the best dentist experiences I have had. They actually took me n earlier than my appointment time which is unheard of. Then when I sat down they had a HUGE tv and handed me the remote to pick something off of Netflix. It was nice to have something to distract me from being at the dentist. The Dental Assistant was so so nice and helped me get my x-rays. Dr. Youn was just as pleasant and I felt so at ease. I was super impressed with how quickly she was able to look at everything and determine exactly what I needed done. I didnt get the best news and found out I need my wisdom teeth removed but I feel super confident having it done with her. She also seems to care about the patient and actually cared to get to know me a little bit as opposed to getting me in and out. Thank you!

Didn’t feel rushed. Listened to my dental history. Explained exactly what was next while I was there. Easily made followup appointments. Made sure I didn’t have any questions. Polite. Courteous.

No wait time! My husband and I had back to back appointments, but she was able to see us both at the same time. Quick and to the point. Makes recommendations but realizes you may not follow them.

The office was ready to see me as soon as I arrived! My only issue with the visit overall was the doctor decided to do more than originally planned for a filling so after I had paid upfront I had more charges before I left again.

Dr. Youn was great! She's very knowledgable and explains everything throughout your appointment. The office staff is extremely nice and helpful as well. I was seen before my actual appointment time which was awesome and was done quickly. Nogimmicks or up sells either which I really appreciate from a doctor/dentist. Highly recommend giving this office a chance if you’re looking for a new one!

I had a great experience with Dr. Youn and her team. She was efficient but I didn't feel like it was rushed at all. I had one cavity filled on the spot and she made sure to let me know thatwe can stop for breaks or raise a hand if there is pain and need to back off. She put a watch on a couple other spots but didn't recommend an aggressive treatment plan, which I appreciated. Overall, would highly recommend.

Dr.Youn and her staff were great! I just moved to the area and was looking for a close dental office and I'm so happy I went. It had been a few years since my last visit and I was a bitnervous about the work I might need. The front desk verified my insurance for me, told me in detail what was needed, and scheduled me out for the work in a timely manner. I didn't feel pressured by the doctor or the staff and will definitely recommend others to the practice!

She was friendly but did not make me feel comfortable at all. She was rough on the tooth cleaning and didn't take her time. I didn't like the way she addressed her staff either. At the end, she charged me aridiculous amount for the dental work that I needed done.

The doctor and staff were very polite but she recommended a much more expensive procedure than what was necessary to cure the problem.

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!
