Cris is incredibly professional, knowledgeable and passionate about dentistry. He is very thorough and attentive. I had my first cavity (sigh) and the filling was very gentle and not painful at all. I trust him with any and all dental proceduresand am incredibly happy with the results. I recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist.

He is a very knowledgeable dentist and really made my 3 year old feel comfortable and made it fun for him. A first time dental experience every mom dreads. I was very pleasantly surprised with how well my son did andhow Dr. Pavel was able to keep my son engaged during the whole process.

Dr. Chris Pavel is a very skilled dental professional. My daughter and I have been patients of Dr. Chris for the past year and had significant dental work done. We had a good experience on every occasion. Also the latest technologyis used in the office. Lastly Dr. Chris has gone out of the way to make us comfortable, especially my daughter who was very fearful of the experience. I highly recommend Dr. Chris Pavel.

I was very happy to meet Mrs. Pavel who is the office manager for the practice. Dr. Pavel came on to the conference room with us briefly as we discussed my future treatment needs, insurance coverage and my costs. He explainedwhat needed to be done and she explained via a complete typed version of each procedure with costs. They then broke it down into appointments for me to schedule. Julie the receptionist was very helpful in scheduling my first appointment at my convenience with Dr. Pavel at my side for verification of time needed. This is a very professional office with beautiful surrounding and a genuine caring attitude.

Dr. Pavel is so professional yet personable and welcoming. His office is beautiful and staff is as kind and helpful as he is. He has the most gentle touch and after I've been remiss in getting my teeth cleaned or examined,he was more than kind. I would highly recommend him. He also sees children so I'll be referring him to all my kids and friends with grandchildren.

Dr. Pavel has a beautiful office. I was welcomed as soon as I arrived & did not have to wait at all. I had put off finding a dentist for around 5 years and was worried about how things would go.My appointment went great. Dr. Pavel was awesome and really made sure I was comfortable and understood what was going on. He was very careful while cleaning my teeth (I hate getting my teeth cleaned). If you've put off going to the dentist, and/or just need a good dentist, I'd highly recommend Dr. Pavel. My visit went great.

Dr. Pavel and his office were great for a first time visit. I arrived about 10 minutes early and only had a few documents to fill out as I had completed most documents online. I had X-Rays and was seated beforemy appointment time. The office and Doc were very professional and thorough, and I would definitely recommend visiting their office.

Like father like son. Excellent dentist like his dad, top of the line equipment, knowledge, honesty. I don't like dentists period so it is very hard for me to say this: Pavel family is great no matter who deal with, thedad, the mom, and now the son and getting work done at their Chicago office is the least stressful thing in the week, whatever that week may be :)
