Patient reviews for Dr. David Behm
This was my first visit to Dr. Behm. I found him to be very pleasant, very knowledgeable, and he made me feel very comfortable. I highly recommend him. And his receptionist is great too!!
He is professional and kind.
Dr. Behm is very thorough in his cleaning, and my teeth build up a lot of plaque. My family has gone to him for close to 20 years now. I highly recommend.
As a long time existing patient, I received the usual Quality of Care & Service again today.
He was extremely kind and patient with me, despite us being late and keeping them waiting.
Dr Behm is very professional and Donna is so nice! I really recommend them
It was a very easy procedure went really well and quick. I’ve been a patient with Dr. Behm for years
Very experienced and knowledgeable dentist. I am very grateful for his great work. Always fertile with a great sense of humor. I’m trust him and will recommend to my friends
I have severe dental anxiety, and Dr. Behm was really wonderful, he is ready to assist, and even checked in on me after my procedure to make sure I was healing well!
He and Donna are always relaxed and quick with humor;as well as very professional!!
Got in quickly, got a thorough cleaning, and got out painlessly!
Dr. Behm is an incredible dentist. He is super nice, genuine, and extremely knowledgeable. His wife is super sweet with Dr. Behm makes a great team. I had a dentist while growing up that was a close family friend. I feel like I've finally found a dentist practice with which I get a similar level of care.
Dr. Behm and Donna are a great team. Not only do they treat their patients like family, but they provide 100% professional care.
He’s the best! I actually look forward to going to my visits with him. Very thorough and personable.
Dr. Behm is a really nice guy, he's very attentive and works with care. I love visiting his office!
Dr. Behm is an excellent dentist who cares about doing quality work. He keeps up with technological advances in dentistry, too. I've been going to him for 20 years.
He is a very good doctor..he understands your teeth well and knows exactly what treatment is required.
He has been my dentist for many years. I find him to be very professional. I would recommend him to my friends!
Dr. Behm is a kind and professional dentist who I have been seeing for years. He is personable, which is what you want in a doctor and actually cares about his patients. I like small, intimate offices that provide patients with old fashion service. And, if he can't provide you with the best service for a specific procedure, he will recommend you to someone who can. He is the best!
I’ve been seeing Dr. Behm since 2015 and I’ve had nothing but great experiences. He always does a great job. The dental office is full of humorous and classic portraits and they, Dr. Behm and Donna, make you feel right at home. It’s also right off of the red line and in a really cute neighborhood to boot. I’m so glad I found this place. I won’t go anywhere else.
The best dentist in Chicago! Very personable, attentive and thorough. Any question or problem I had, he gave me a solution for. Him and his staff are top notch!
They always treat me like family
Very professional and extremely superior dental work. Highly recommend our dentist, Dr. Behm, in every way.
As always, Dr. Behm and his sidekick Donna are professional, no nonsense, and friendly. Dr. Behm performed my cleaning himself and articulated what he was doing in a plain uncomplicated way. Donna expedited the check-in and check-out and provided me a selection of days and times for a follow up.
As usual, Dr Behm was very pleasant and thorough. I went in to have a filling done, and he took great care to ensure that I didn't feel any pain and was meticulously attentive to detail in getting the filling just right. His wife Donna, who also works in the practice, is also professional and warm. I have been coming to Dr. Behm's office for over seven years now and am happy to have him as my dentist.
My most recent treatment required an crown to be made by an outside lab in an expedited manner. Dr. Behm personally volunteered to take the casting to the lab on a Friday evening in order to expedite the process, where had he sent it through regular channels it could have easily added an extra week for completion. He can be direct at times, and I don't think he'd deny that, but he also takes a personal and sincere interest in his patients and I'm appreciative for all the work he's provided to me over the past decade.
Doctor Behm is a very caring doctor, my services are always excellent.
This is the first dentist I've gone to who engaged in friendly conversation (or who wasn't weird in general). Dr. Behm thoroughly explained what was going on with my teeth and gave a thorough examination, even checking lymph nodes. He even said I could call his cell phone if I had any questions or concerns about anything discussed. I would highly recommend this dentist!
Dr Behm and his wife make a great team! They are very much in sync when it comes to executing procedures, and they're a delightful pair of people to talk with. I feel very comfortable in their office.
Dr. Behm is the best dentist I have ever been treated by in my life! Completely professional, skilled, kind and patient, Dr. Behm is the best dentist I have ever been treated by in my life. Completely professional, skilled, kind, and gentle, Dr. Behm has given me the educational instruction I need to continue a healthy lifestyle concerning the care and maintenance of my teeth and gums. I truly appreciate being Dr. Behm's patient all these years. I'm so lucky to have found him, and I can highly recommend Dr. Behm to anyone looking for a great dentist !
Dr. David Behm is awesome and gave me good recommendations on how to take care of my teeth. His assistant is very pleasant and helpful.
Outdated office, outdated equipment. Behm bickered with and belittled his assistant the whole time. Getting x-rays was painful. My wife's experience was even worse.
Incredible staff, in and out.
Both Dr. Behm and his assistant were nice enough, but the facilities appeared very antiquated and it was one of the most painful basic cleanings I have ever received. The office is small and difficult to find as it is on the first floor of an apartment building. It looks like someone set up a dental practice in an actual apartment unit. The equipment was browning and cracked and if I were to date the era in which it was purchased, I would say the 1980s. I was also immediately greeted with passive aggressive comments about my insurance - not the strongest first impression. As my teeth were being cleaned, Dr. Behm appeared to have a muffled argument with his assistant. It was uncomfortable and unprofessional. It was a VERY aggressive cleaning for my gums in particular, starting with the scraping with the hand tool and continuing through the drilling tool he used to continue scraping at my teeth. I felt that my gums had to be bleeding. I don't know if this is normal, since I've never had another dentist do this, but maybe my other dentists just haven't been thorough enough. All I know is, I did not find it necessary. Like I said, while they were nice and I could tell that they were well-intentioned, the entire experience paled in comparison to every single other dentist experience I've ever had. I wish I could bring my dentist from home to Chicago. The search continues.
Dr. Behm was very informative about my case & I would recommend him to everyone he's an excellent dentist. I call him a mad scientist
My visit to Dr. Behm's office was as pleasant as a dentist's visit could be. His staff were friendly and worked quickly and Dr. Behm's cleaning and exam was thorough with minimal pushing and pulling on my teeth. The office is very small and the layout is a little unusual but don't be discouraged by that. I'd recommend Dr. Behm to anyone!
After putting off a visit to the dentist for roughly 20 years my natural fears of the dentist chair were even stronger than usual. Dr. Behm's entire office staff have been nothing short of amazing in making me feel comfortable and in good, safe hands. From the first contact with Donna, the receptionist, to the reassuring words Dr. Behm & his awesome nurse would say to me during my cleaning I couldn't be happier with having found them. On a side note, as a confirmed baseball junkie & Stooge-aholic, the fact that there are baseball pictures & 3 Stooges pictures throughout the office didn't hurt at all!
Dr. David Behm is the best dentist on the planet !!
Dr. Behm was very rude to his coworker and would undermine her work. He literally was in the next room having an argument with her while I was in the chair. The cleaning was very violent and my face was wet afterwards because he kept flailing the water thing around while he was being passive aggressive to the coworker. It was the leart professional and worst experience I have ever seen.
I am satisfied with Dr. Behm. I used to be a patient with another dentist until recently, I changed because I do not think they were not careful enough, specially because I have very sensitive teeth and the way they were cleaning them was too rough. Dr. Behm was the complete opposite. I'm definitely going back there.
He is a perfectionist!!
Always gives great advice on oral care and Listens patiently to patient's concern.
He spent a lot of time cleaning the extensive stains on my teeth in what was supposed to be just a routine cleaning and exam. I really appreciate the great deal of extra effort he made for my health and appearance.
A fantastic, friendly, dentist. One of the best...
Dr. Behm did a filling on my front tooth and it looks amazing, you wouldn't know there was ever a chip, the color is perfect. Dr. Behm is an expert, I would recommend him to anyone.
He is a very nice guy?
I thought he was very professional, honest, and kind. I appreciated his recommendations and will be seeing him again for my follow up appt.
