Verified Patient Reviews
I had an appointment for a consultation and cleaning. I waited for maybe a minute after I finished the paperwork. I’m always anxious at the dentist, but Vanessa put me at ease immediately and did everything she could to make me comfortable during the cleaning. Dr. Kossak was also very kind and thorough. Everyone I encountered there was lovely and I look forward to working with them again!
Best dentist experience I have ever had! Staff members are personable, attentive, careful and honest. Equipment is top notch. Treatment was incredible. Office was clean, modern, and welcoming.
Very Pleased with my whole experience with Dr Kossak and her staff! Everyone was very welcoming and super friendly and very clean office. Also I was impressed that as a new patient I was called right in within 5min of my appt time, A++ for the entire experience
Wonderfule experience. The entire team is professional and I would highly recommend them.
It was a excellent experience! They take the time to make sure you understand everything. I have a fear of the dentist but I had absolutely no issues with her!
Everyone was very professional and I'd recommend you guys to anyone. Thank you for the kindness towards me, it was very respectable. All the work done was top-notch. Most approved!
The entire staff was beyond incredible!
I was afraid of the dentist before I saw Dr. Kossak. She's a gold standard doctor and I am going back to here quickly to resolve my dental health instead of running away and hoping it will be better. Please see here while she's still in Chicago - love the office, front desk, and the way the staff informs you of what is going on.
My visit was very pleasant. I had a root canal and it wasn't painful at all. Dr. Kossak talked me through the procedure and the dental assistant was great too.
Great experience! Was more than pleased with the results of my whitening treatment as well!
Very pleasant and great bedside manner. Does an excellent job on my teeth as well as explaining what we are doing!
Dr. Kossak is amazing! Both visits I have had with the doctor were seamless and very smooth. There were no surprises and all the staff was friendly and knowledgable. Dr. Kossak is very personable and friendly she walked me through my X-rays and explained what she was seeing and what it meant. I felt very informed about my teeth and the state that they are in. She identified two cavities and recommended fillings(?). I hate getting the anesthesia shot in my mouth but Dr. Kossak did such a good job I barely felt it! My next appointment, where she did fill in my cavities, was incredibly fast (I was done in 40 minutes) without feeling rushed. Both times I was taken in quickly and had minimal or no wait at all.
MY visit was excellent. Dr. Kossak was great, very pleasant. Actually, the whole staff was great. The office was very modern and nice. Also it smelled really good in there. I'll definitely go back.
Very friendly and personable. The assistants at the office were also top-notch!
This was by far the fastest and most pleasant dental appointment I have ever had. I came in for a cleaning (after 2 years of not having my teeth cleaned :/). The cleaning was fast, and they let me know I had 2 cavities that needed to be filled. They were able to fill the cavities that day! In total for cleaning and fillings, I was only at the office for a little under an 1.5 hours. I am extremely pleased and will be returning.
It was awesome! I can't wait to get started on my dental plan with her. I finally found a Dr. that's interested in the patient's needs and wants.
Explains the treatment step by step and works in a manner that makes for a very relaxing atmosphere. All the dental assistants have also helped make my visits a stress free time.
My root canal was much less painful than expected. After the initial numbing injections I felt only a little discomfort no pain at all. Having the bite block was the most uncomfortably part of the procedure and Dr. Kossak made sure to use gauze and extra numbing medication to help relieve the discomfort I was experiencing. She was warm, considerate, and professional. I would highly recommend her.
I can happily say my appointment with Dr. Kossak was the best dental experience of my 32 years. I've tried 3 other Chicago dentists and did not like them at all. Dr. Kossak and her colleagues were super professional, but casual and made me feel completely comfortable. It was also awesome that Dr. has small hands. This was my first time being scheduled with female dentist and I loved not having huge meat hooks in my mouth. Set up my 6 month appointment before I left.
Very kind and helpful. Understanding and compassionate. Someone who I would definitely consider going back to (and actually am next week)... Through and professional.
Really glad I came to see Dr. Kossak. She was clear in outlining her observations and the options available to me for treatment. The office was straightforward and transparent about cost. Treatment was quick and efficient, but not at all impersonal. I appreciated the staff's "bedside manner," they're great people there. I'll note that I'm difficult to numb and Dr. Kossak knew exactly what to do and told me why I was a tough case. It just inspired more confidence in her expertise.
So good! They were super patient and put up with my jokes about the things women do for beauty. Everyone there is so young and beautiful; it was basically a room full of Beyonces in an industry full of Susan Boyles.
Super nice and accommodating.
Dr. Kossak made me feel very comfortable! She was both professional and friendly. It was the quickest dentist visit I have ever had. Looks like I found my new dentist in Chicago!
I'm always nervous going into big dental procedures but Dr. Kossak was awesome! She kept me very calm and comfortable. No complaints here!
Great service :) very pleased with my visit and love the office ....
Dr. Kossak is a great dentist. She also does a thorough job going over all my options without pressuring me. I would highly recommend!
A very pleasant experience overall.
She is the best! I recommend her everybody.
I always feel extremely comfortable when I see Dr Kossak at Polished! She welcomes me and treats me like a friend, which is very nice, especially since the cleaning tool makes me cringe every time!
After enduring many negative dental experiences in the past I can now rest at ease having Dr. Kossak as my dentist. She did an amazing job on a crown I needed, explains every charge before she does work and makes sure you aren't in any pain. Everyone there makes you feel comfortable and its very clear they take great interest in their patients. Never though I would say this, but actually looking forward to finishing up the rest of my dental work. Thanks!
She was very kind and had a good bedside manner. Also had very good equipment and was able to show me a darkening in my tooth crevice for which she suggested I get a sealant which I did. Glad she helped me prevent a cavity. However, I also asked about my wisdom teeth which are not fully in and one was compacted. She suggested that I get all four removed. I realize this is a preventative measure, but I got a second opinion as it seemed pretty extreme. The second dentist seemed much more thorough. Told me that the wisdom teeth were not affecting my other teeth, not hurting me etc so there was no reason to rush to take them out. Also told me that I may need to get them out preventatively after all but wanted to get better x-rays that show the whole wisdom tooth. Overall, she did not provide options and did not explain why I should take them all out. Glad I got a second opinion.
I thought this was the best dentist visit I have ever had and I have had bad experiences with dentist so I am not a fan of dentist. The consultation was personal and seemed the best answer for my situation. I had other consultations and the suggestions from Dr. Kossak were not the same; she had other alternatives that were more advantageous. I felt a sense of caring and I was very satisfied.
Dr. Kossak is a great dentist! Very personable, and took the time to explain what she was seeing both on X-rays & exam, and what the best course of treatment would be.
Dr. Kossak was great. I needed a cavity filled and she and her staff had a plan of care prepared that was easy to understand and broke down the cost to me easily.
Got a free teeth whitening appointment!
Dr. Kossak is very charming and had an excellent bedside manner. She was clearly intelligent in her field and I trusted and respected her skills and abilities within minutes. I would recommend someone else to see her and will go back to see her again.
She was very nice and very helpful. Professional dental office.
Dr. Kossak is a highly skilled dentist with a terrific bedside manner. The staff is also very friendly, professional and attentive. Glad to have found a new dental home.
Another quick and painless visit to Polished, per usual! Thanks again Dr. Kossak.
I was able to make a Sunday appointment one week before actually coming in. ZocDoc let me fill out my new patient forms online, so I only had to fill out some additional health history info when I arrived at the office. I was only in the waiting room for about 5 minutes before being seen, and the total cleaning appointment only took about half an hour. They were quick, friendly, and very professional!
Dr. Kossak and her staff are always more than friendly and get the job done quick and effectively.
Dr Kossak is very professional yet compassionate. She always welcomes you by saying your name, which I like and she knows my job and asks me about my students. Awesome!
Very friendly staff. Thorough, yet quick visit. Takes time to walk through care plan. Excellent experience.
I am extremely happy with Dr. Kossak as my regular dentist. She is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I had to have my first cavities filled after 25 years and was extremely nervous about, she was quick and the procedure was much more comfortable than expected. The staff is always welcoming and warm and the office is clean and well put together. I would highly recommend going to vist her.
The best! I couldn't ask for anything more from a dentist.
Dr Kossak was amazing, she explained everything to me so that I knew what was going on throughout the entire process. Excellent communication.
They are very nice and accommodated an emergency I had and got me in right away. This will be the only place I go from now on
Dr. Kossak was very professional, kept me very informed throughout my cleaning, diagnosis, and treatment. She was also extremely respectful of my teeth sensitivity, which was AWESOME!
Always a great experience with Dr. Kossak and Polished! She somehow managed to make my first fillings a comfortable visit. Dr. Kossak and her team are always pleasant and very gentle -- highly recommend!
Professional, sweet and thorough! Very upfront with treatment options and costs and her support staff are wonderful too!
Great Doctor. I always feel comfortable in her office. There schedules are really flexible as well. I highly recommend Dr. Kossak.
The first time I've ever truly enjoyed a trip to the dentist!
Dr. Kossak was very nice and took the time to go over my x-rays in detail. Very friendly and did a wonderful job cleaning my teeth. She is also super cute!!
What I liked best was her willingness to explain what was going on in detail and answer all of my questions. Compared to other dentists I've seen, she was extraordinary.
She was wonderful. Can't wait for my next appointment!
Fantastic experience, been avoiding the dentist for 2 years and Dr Kossak did everything to put me at ease.
She is very knowledgeable and her office equipment uses state of the art technology to give you a good look at what they are working on in your teeth
Everyone there was friendly and kind. I'd definitely go back again.
Very nice office; attentive staff; Dr. Kossak ensures her patient is aware of what is being done, and why; consider myself rather fortunate to have stumbled upon this office
This was by far the best dental experience I've ever had. The lovely Dr.Kossak was very professional, knowledgeable, and empathetic. She explained everything thoroughly in a very straight forward manner. She also went out of her way to make sure all my questions were answered. Other dentistries really need to take an example from this place.
Dr. Kossak was extremely nice and informative. You can tell she truly cares about her patients. The exam/cleaning was a breeze and the office is clean and comfortable! I would highly recommend Dr. Kossak.
I thought the office was very nice and the doctor was very thorough in explaining the condition of my teeth. The dental aides really took the time to explain to me how my insurance was helping to pay for my procedures.
I find it very important to stay loyal to one dentist- it just makes everything easier. I originally had an appt with with Dr. Desai but had to reschedule. Dr. Desai is not in on Thursdays so i was treated by Dr. Kossak. Dr. Kossak and her staff was VERY warm and friendly. I like both Dr. Desai and Dr. Kossak. To whom i will continuing seeing is based upon my schedule. Thank you, for being so kind.
I loved my experience at the dentist which is a first! Everything was professional and the staff was very friendly!
Ms kossak was awesome and very helpful great facilities.
Very professional and honest, was upfront about needing work done immediately without being pushy. Incredibly nice with a comforting yet efficient manner. The office has a very friendly atmosphere and everyone there was helpful and kind, and seemed incredibly competent. As someone who is afraid of seeing a dentist and incredibly busy and stressed, I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed my experience with Doctor Kossak.
I was so impressed with the office, staff & Dr. Kossak. They took excellent care of my daughter.
Very pleased, staff was friendly and professional. Very helpful and Doctor was great.
It was awesome! Dr. Kossak is great!
Always a good time. Very good bedside manner, compasionate, and a very skilled clinician. I would recommend her to all of my friends and family. Going to the dentist has never been this enojoyable. :)
She really did a great job. I was very impressed.
Dr. Kossak is personable, kind, and takes a genuine interest in her patients. Going to the dentist is no longer scary or a bore.
The first dentist I have ever visited that was straightforward, honest, and upfront about what we were doing. She didn't try to sell me on pulling a primary molar (that every other dentist I have seen told me was a "must"). Everything was quick and easy - the building was clean and easy to get to. I highly recommend!!
She was very patient with me and understanding. I was terrified and nervous but she helped make the experience a good one.
I had an amazing experience with Dr. Kossak. I would highly recommend her. I didn't have the best childhood experiences with dentists, but she made me feel so comfortable.
Excellent dentist. Saw me very quickly and was able to do a filling right away. Highly recommend Dr. Kossak!
Very pleased with the visit. All of my concerns were addressed in a professional yet friendly manner. She uses a small, high quality camera that is hooked up to a screen in front of you to show exactly what she sees with your teeth.
Very friendly. I've had the same dentist for a very long time so switching dentists was a big deal to me. My visit went very smoothly.
Very friendly and made me feel at ease. I went today and I've already recommended her!
I was nervous about seeing a dentist because it had been a long time. Dr. Kossak put me at ease and explained all her findings and recommendations.
Very nice and professional, straight forward and honest
I thought she was great. I've never been to such a nice, friendly office where each one of the staff members were so attentive and caring. It was extremely clean & I really liked the office vibe! I would highly recommend her!
it was better than i expected and fast.
Great experience. Dr. Kossak is extremely patient and skilled. Will definitely be going back!
Dr. Kossak and the staff were super friendly, prompt and professional. Everything was explained and the suggestions were great. I didn't feel like I was being fed a bunch of crap from them. Very personable people and very thorough cleaning. Looking forward to my next visit in 6 months.
Dr. Kossak was the best dentist I've ever seen. She made me feel instantly at ease and was accommodating to my fear of dental work! I love the massage chairs and being able to wear headphones during the cleaning was a major plus. Fantastic experience, I will definitely be going back.
Wonderful experience, at the dentist no less! Elizabeth was very nice and friendly, and took time to look at the x-rays with me and explain everything. Her hygienist, Jessica, was very funny throughout the process, set me at ease. I'll definitely be recommending this place to friends and family.
You'd be getting it wrong if you didn't go with Dr. Kossak and her team, they were just really wonderful all around. Couldn't have been more pleased after my first visit.
Ms. Kossak was very friendly yet professional. The office was clean and welcoming. I plan to return for my next cleaning.
I was able to easily get an appointment at this clinic. The assistants and the doctor made me feel super duper comfy. I was so freaked out that they might say something due to the fact I have never been to the dentist in this country. Dr Elizabeth did not just try to get me on some treatment she explained to me in detail and also said that she will get a second opinion in my braces case. It only goes to show that she is genuine. I already booked my next appointment.
Dr. Kossak was extremely attentive and gentle. She explained all of my issues clearly and presented x-rays & pictures during my visit. The facility was very clean and everybody on staff was very friendly. I would recommend Polished to anybody!
I had a great experience seeing Dr. Kossak. She was friendly, thorough, and informative. She took the time to answer all of my questions. I look forward to using her again in the future.
She was very friendly and took the time to answer every question I had during my visit.
Dr. Kossak is very professional and personable! I highly recommend her and will continue to trust her with all my dental needs.
I was so nervous to go to the dentist, it had been a long time and I have really sensitive teeth, but Dr. Kossak made it so easy! She was really comforting, and supportive. She even numbed my teeth a little with a gel to help with the cleaning. I'm not nervous anymore to go to my next 6 month cleaning with her.
Dr Kossak was very nice, thorough and efficient. She explained everything she was doing as she did it, made sure I felt comfortable and was very reassuring. I will be using her as my dentist from now on.
I found Dr. Kossak through my insurance provider, and I really lucked out! She took me as soon as I got there (20 min early) and was super friendly and knowledgeable. I will be recommending her to my friends in the city.
Dr. Kossak was fantastic. It was my first dental visit since moving to Chicago, and she answered all of my questions in a very knowledgeable and friendly way. The equipment at Polished is all brand-new. I was shocked to find that x-rays could be taken digitally, with no developing time! I will be returning for follow-up dental work without hesitation.
I would highly recommend Dr. Kossak. She's very friendly and professional. I had a great experience.
She was very nice and professional. I would definitely recommend her and her practice.
Excellent! Can't wait to come back!
