Dr. Shah is gentle, kind, a wonderful listener and a thorough dentist. Her office is wonderful, staff is great.
Very knowledgeable and pleasant to be around. Very thorough in explaining all of the procedures and my assessment. Will definitely recommend clinic and Dr Shah to other people.
They had all my info inputted for easy check in which was great. Dr. Shah is thorough and walks you through everything. Beautiful office with nice touched like massage chairs and aromatherapy. She puts a lot of heart and care into her practice.
I love this Dental practice! Dr Shah is great, everyone in the office is efficient and helpful and incredibly nice
Dr. Shah was great. Called her office in an emergency situation and they were able to see me right away. She was very comforting and supportive. Wouldn't hesitate to refer her. And I'll definitely go back for further treatments.
She's the best! Highly recommend her.
She is an amazing dentist. Best provider that I have experienced in my 31 years of being a dental patient. She is patient, kind, and thorough. Every dentist I have ever been too is rushing to get to the next patient and she takes her time to do a great job. My teeth have never been cleaner. She even remember info about me from 6 months ago - she took the time to care enough to remember that. She even has internet TV that you can select whatever you want to watch while in the chair - not to mention the wonderful smelling Lavender oil on the dental napkin they put on you. It is honestly the best dental experience that I have had. She is a great dentist that cares and she is very thorough. I highly recommend.
Ankita is extremely helpful and friendly. She very patiently explained to me overall conditions, diagnosis, treatment process, and everything else. She was very careful during the process, focused, and very considerate about my comfort level. Excellent doctor!
Dr Ankita was awesome, made me feel very comfortable. I'm pregnant and I know she was really looking out for what was best for me.
Love Dr.Shah. I found her because I was looking for a pediatric dentist, she is GREAT with kids. She's my daughters first dentist & will be her last. I now see Dr. Shah too. Staff is wonderful too. If you want a great dentist with excellent staff & office go see Dr. Shah!!!
It was incredible. I loved how she explained every single procedure she did and calmly listened when I was talking.
Thank you, as always, for making me feel comfortable & safe!
I had a great experience with Dr. Shah! She was very thorough with explaining her process and procedure, but at the same time very efficient and cognizant of my time. The office was very clean and updated and everyone was very professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Shah to anyone looking for a dentist and it is great to know she is taking new patients!
Dr. Shah is wonderful. She always makes me feel welcome and genuinely cares about my oral hygiene. You can tell that she loves what she does.
First time visit with Dr. Shah, and it was a great experience. The woman at the front desk was very friendly (it was my birthday a couple days prior and she wished me a happy belated birthday). Most of my life, I've gone to a practice where the dental hygienist does most of the work, and the dentist would come in, poke around and say, "everything looks good." That's not the case here! Dr. Shah was a part of the process almost the entire time. She was very informative and honest with what she was doing, and she was really friendly! I've never had a dentist walk me through my x-rays, which I thought was really nice too - she wants you to see what she sees. The office itself is very nice - great location right on Madison St. in the West Loop. Each room/chair has a TV with Netflix (you get to pick your show) and they offered aromatherapy too - the dentist makes me nervous sometimes, so this helped calm me down! Considering I was at the dentist (haha), I had a great experience here and would recommend Dr. Shah and her practice to anyone.
Dr. Shah makes going to the dentist actually pleasant. She is one of the nicest, most passionate, and most professional dentist I have ever had. From being gentle and comforting when doing teeth cleaning, to showing you how your teeth are, she is a professional that you should be going to.
Love her ability to teach someone that has no dental knowledge.
Very attentive dentist who took the time to provide quality care. She was genuinely interested in addressing my tooth pain but didn't up sell on other services. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for dentist in the West Loop.
Who knew, a visit with your dentist could be such a pleasure! Dr. Shah rocks! We always have the most interesting conversations and always leave feeling confident about my dental health.
Very gentle and always kind. Great doctor.
Dr. Shah was extremely helpful in the two visits I have had with her. She is very nice and knowledgeable in her field. I did not have any stress attempting to find an opening in her schedule. What was great for me was that I needed a procedure that would take over an hour, but I work during the normal operating hours for the week, and they have Saturday hours if you arrange them. This was a huge life saver! I would recommend anyone and everyone to see Dr. Shah!
I was overdue for a visit to the dentist and was a little nervous about going. Dr. Shah and the hygienist (i'm so sorry I forgot your name!)were so friendly and explained everything. I had a great experience and highly recommend Dental Smiles of West Loop.
Love Dr. Shah. I brought my daughter in to see her and she's great with kids. My daughter is only five and thus is her second visit with Dr. Shah and she is patient and puts my daughter at ease. You can watch cartoons while she works. I'm changing dentist so I'll be seeing Dr. Shah now.
She is very professional; explains needed procedures and those that do not need immediate attention. And in all this she remains personable.
Dr. Shaw is amazing. A great dentist who takes pride in her work. Would 100% recommend for anyone looking for a dentist.
Dr. Shah is so sweet and patient. I was so scared to go to the dentist (I hadn't been in way too long) and she put me at ease, made things as painless as she possibly could, and set up a realistic plan of action for moving forward. I will never wait so long to go to the dentist and that's because of her! Her assistant Gladys is also a total doll. Couldn't give enough stars!
Dr. Ankita Shah is great! I can’t say enough wonderful comments about The The Dental Smiles West Loop Practice. The dentists and staff are so sweet and kind, and work so diligently to make sure I am comfortable each visit. Plus it helps that they are efficient and get things done quickly. Highly recommend visiting.
Dr Shah is personable, knowledgeable, and professional. Dental smiles creates a very relaxing environment for a dental office, and Dr Shah does a great job of priming the patient for (and helping the patient manage) any potential pain in a procedure.
Dr. Shah is Amazing! She was kind, courteous, and explained everything she was doing and why it was important. The office is great as well. It has massage chairs, tv's, and aromotherapy that contibuted to the most relaxing visit to the dentist I have ever had. I would definitely recommend her to others.
Best dentist appointment I've had! Dentist and assistant both checked in regularly with how I was feeling during the appointment and explained everything.
Great DMD! Very thorough, office was very new and clean!
Very pleasant experience. Dr. Shah was nice and thorough and made sure that I understood everything that was going on.
Most enjoyable dentist appt ever. Beautiful office and special touches (tv and aromatherapy) made whole experience very peaceful. Dr shah was very personable and caring. Took time to explain everything. Will be taking my kids next
A very caring and patient dentist. Highly recommend.
Dr. Shah was very thorough and professional, while at the same time very personable. Her surgery is pleasant and fully appointed. Very convenient to my office in the Loop!
She was very knowledgable and professional. Super nice and comforting in an anxiety provoking situation. Affordable and reasonable too.
Dr. Shah and her assistant Gladys are amazing! I recently moved to the West Loop and switched dentists for proximity. I chipped my front tooth today and called the office in a panic, they were able to get to in for the emergency fix. Dr. Shah did a beautiful job!! Very professional. Happy to have found this new dental studio.
Very cooperative and nice. I feel safe and she takes care for everything, even tiny details
great attitude, no upsell and she didnt hurt me...highly recommend.
Dr. Shah is very professional. I can tell that she cares about the quality of her work. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends.
Dr. Shah is the very best dentist that I have seen in Chicago and I have seen over five to include a "holistic" dentist as well as a biological dentist. I have had some poor dental work and have been afraid and apprehensive after seeing so many dentists who have not taken the time to listen to me and my concerns. Dr. Shah listens and is so very professional and flexible. Gladys, the hygenist and office manager is also so wonderful, nurturing, and accommodating. They are a wonderful team and I am confident that I have finally found my dental family. If you are looking for an understanding dentist who loves what they do, is good at it, and actually is trying to help your oral health in comparison to just drilling and filling, please give Dr. Shah's office a visit.
Starting with the massage chairs and TV that make the time go by comfortably, to the rigorous explanations of how my teeth need to be taken care of properly, my visit to Dr. Shah was excellent and informative. She makes it a priority to involve you in the discussions about strategies to prevent cavities, and even explains what features to look for in the X-rays. There was no absolutely no pain during the cleaning, and Dr. Shah frequently paused her work to make sure that this was indeed the case. Quiet, soft-spoken, and indubitably honest, Dr. Shah is certainly a dentist I would recommend to anyone.
Nice and helpful. Took the time to show me my problem areas and give advice. Had a lot of cavities filled and she did a good job
Dr shah was so kind to me, as was Gladys. They understood my irrational fear of dentists and really helped calm me down. I don't have any fear of making another appt in the future. Big thanks to them.
Dr. Shah clearly cares about her patients - she takes a very technical approach in evaluating your oral hygiene. I appreciate the attention received from Dr. Shah.
She was very transparent and made me feel very comfortable.
overall, a great experience. Friendly and explained what was going on in simple terms and was very straight-forward about what needed to be done now and what needed to be kept an eye on for future visits. I've been to dentists in the past where I felt like they were recommending added treatments and purchases and Dr. Shah never did any of that kind of stuff. Very clear informaiton about costs and insurance coverage. Thoughtful and precise, I absolutely hate getting my teeth worked on, and this was one of the best experiences I have ever had at a dentist. Location is easy to get to and facilities are quite nice. Highly recommend.
Everyone one was really nice. My 4yr old loved Dr. Shah & Gladys. They eased her tensions and she had a great checkup. Will recommend
I loved it! She was wonderful and walked me through everything! Been to a few dentists in the city and she is the best!
Thorough examination on my first appointment with minimal additional x-rays. A treatment plan was drawn up for my British teeth...hence treatment needed. Dr Shah is a conservative dentist who prefers to save and restore teeth to the other much favoured method of other dentists....in my experience. She thoroughly explained my issues, set out costs and advised best case treatments. I would definitely recommend her office.
What an excellent experience I had at Dr Shah's office. I am so glad I stumbled upon her practice when choosing a dentist.
Very professional, friendly and timely!!! I would definitely recommend this office to anyone looking for a good dentist in the West Loop!
Dr Shah was very accommodating and professional. Her staff was really great too. I was comfortable and my filling was painless. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Shah is a very personable dentist who is very good at her craft. She also takes the time to answer all questions and address any concerns. Highly recommended.
I had sent information about the procedure that I wanted. The Dentist was somewhat uncaring about my tooth extract problem. All I wanted was a rough cost estimate. She gave me the run-around about how much it would cost to get my tooth taken out and do the procedure. Her secretary/assistant swore she would email me the information within the next day and she never followed up with a price. I also brought her some X-rays in a CD and she didn't even bother trying to see what was in there. She said I would need to get X-rays done again so she could give me a price. Complete WASTE of my TIME!
I was apprehensive about going to a new dentist, but Dr. Shah was incredible. She is kind, thoughtful and incredibly knowledgable - I thought I was an expert at dentistry given the number of visits I've had, but she taught me a handful of new things today. She's also the first dentist I have had who seemed to care about my overall health, not just looking for cavities or issues in my teeth. 10/10 would recommend her to anyone for any sort of dental issue. Her dental chairs also have a gentle massage mode which was a first (and awesome).
She is amazing!! I didn't have to wait at all and she took her time with me. Most dentists make me feel like I'm part of an assembly line-they come in for 2 sec and look at your teeth, talk for 10 sec and leave. She took her time and explained exactly what needed to be done and why. She also told me that she thinks it would be better for me to see a specialist for my root canal because she wants to make sure it is done thoroughly and the damage is so extensive she doesn't think she is the right person to do that. I appreciate her honesty and the fact that she didn't just try to take my money. Added perks were the Netflix on the TV and the massage chair. Nothing relaxes someone who is nervous and in pain more than a light massage.
Excellent attitude , make me feel that I am in good hands .
I swear to god this visit is the best and easiest dentist experience I have ever gone through. She is the best and make it easy for me. Thx dr. shah!
Went really great.
Dr. Ankita was welcoming and very transparent about all procedures, payment, and recommendations.
Excellent service and a very comfortable setting. The dentist and her assistant were really kind and made for a great experience...love the Netflix on the TVs as well!
