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 mecomfortable 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!

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 seehere while she's still in Chicago - love the office, front desk, and the way the staff informs you of what is going on.

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 myX-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.

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 Ihad 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.

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 sureto 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 casualand 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.

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.

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 sureyou 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 helpedme 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. Ihad 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.

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 theoffice. 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!
