Verified Patient Reviews
Growing up, I had a multitude of tooth problems and received excellent dental care for years. After moving to the area, I struggled to find a quality dentist until I went to Dr. Kwon's office. My boyfriend and I have now been seeing Dr. Kwon for the past four years and we absolutely love him. He is extremely patient with questions, and explains things in great detail so you truly understand what is causing the issue and how to prevent it from occurring again in the future. I highly recommend him - he's awesome!
My 3 kids and I were all seen for cleanings. Both children needed extra treatments. Dr. Kwon clearly explained the procedure to me and cost. We all left with smiles and clean teeth! Dr. Kwon is an excellent dentist that I highly recommend.
He was extremely nice and made sure to help walk me through the cost of the visit and spreading the treatment plan out so that I can afford it.
Just wonderful, he does extra work for his patients though he may not get paid. I am bringing my whole family to him . A+++
Dr. Kwon is the best!!!! So glad a friend recommended him to me!!!
I highly recommend Dr Kwon! I’m so glad we found him. Amazing with kids, and nervous adults.
High quality work; pays attention to details. But also very quick and efficient!
What other dentist actually does the cleaning?!!!! Dr Kwon genuinely cares about his patients and doesn't press unnecessary work. I feel well taken care of.
I LOVE DR. KWON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had been going to the same dentist for 18 yrs and have found out I was really taken for a ride. A fellow co-worker of mine recommended him and am I impressed!! I have a multitude of problems with my teeth due to YEARS of grinding and clenching. Dr. Kwon gave me a thorough examination on my first visit and not only outlined and explained everything I need to have done and why, but also gave me a print out of what I needed and prioritized the order in which it all should be done, which my other dentist NEVER did for me! I'm totally convince that he chose the most expensive procedure I needed and told me that was a priority. What do I know, I believed him. I've only been to Dr. Kwon three times and my teeth look better than they have in years!! Not only was his original pricing MUCH BETTER than my previous dentist, he gave me awesome discounts on top of it!!! Dr. Kwons beside manner is amazing. He's very soft spoken and patient. He's very quick and efficient. His staff are all very friendly and sweet also. At my previous dentist's office when I would ask questions I was always asked why I was questioning his expertise and he made me feel stupid. KUDOS to you, Dr. Kwon!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dr.Kwon is my superhero. MY kid went in 5 different doctors, she wouldn't cooperate and have the fillings done. I was recommended a pediatric dentist that will sedate my kid so thedoctor could do the filling. I didn't need to do anything like that with Dr. Kwon, he did the filling, and I will be going there all the times. I will recommend Dr. Kwon to everyone. I am very happy with all the treatment, his explanations, communications, and professionalism. Great doctor. Thanks a lot.
Another great visit. Awesome dentist!
He was kind and very patient and informative
Dr. Kwon is always so pleasant to see and very honest with his work. I love that his practice is small and he doesn't try to upsell you anything. I think it's just him and an admin/hygenist. It's so small Dr. Kwon even cleans your teeth during a cleaning! Though I do have decent dental insurance, Dr. Kwon's prices are super reasonable in comparison to other dentists. Dr. Kwon is such a wonderful dentist that even after I moved into Chicago, and got rid of my car, I still take the train all the way to Palatine for my dental work.
Dr. Kwon is an excellent Dentist. He is knowledgable, gentle and informative.
Awesome as usual!
Fitst visit. Friendly greeting efficent staff. I was early but appt started on time. Dr James is knowledgable, professional, efficent and kind. I will continue with him!
Great Dentist. Knows what he's doing and is upfront about cost. Thank you so much!
Dr. Kwon was great! He showed me where I need to brush better and why, which I appreciate since this way I might actually learn.
Friendly, professional, always on time.
Very thoughtful, kind, + helpful.
He is such a honest guy,excellent work and professional. If you want someone professional who will make you feel free and give you all the options available,he is the guy.
He is an excellent doctor who explained all the treatments I needed and was not in a hurry forcing me to get it done right away .
Very professional and made me feel comfortable..would recommend to anyone
This dentist never fails to amaze me. He provides state of the art dentistry with modern equipment to everyday people -i.e. Gold Coast, Chicago or Hollywood, Ca.treatment right in the heart of Palatine, Illinois. He explains all procedures and keeps the patient informed every step of the way allowing the patient to make educated choices regarding their treatment. Calm and reassuring demeanor , he is a pro through and through. Office staff is very nice and professional too.
He is an amazing dentist and i hope he keeps up the great work.
consummate professional, caring meticulous, skillful,great office staff
Very good dentist, seems to really care about the patient and his practice, office staff is very pleasant.
Dr. Kwon is an excellent dentist. I've never felt more comfortable and understanding about my dental care.
Took me in right away. Knew I would have the dental work done at another office equipped with nitrous he did a standard exam and X-ray for Medicaid coverage. He revealed 10 small surface cavities via x ray and video examination. All of your exam is done on a video monitor you are holding and controlling. He is willing to stop and explain at any problems or questions. I come here yearly for exams and wont stop any time soon
Dr. Kwon is a great dentist. I'm very scared to go to the dentist so I put of dental work that needs to be done. Since seeing Dr. Kwon I feel much more comfortable and have already scheduled more work to be done. Him, and his staff came up with a action plan, and financial plan between my insurance an myself that is very affordable. I'm looking forward to getting all my teeth healthy again!
I mostly recommend because Dr. Kwon is knowledgable, tactical, quick, and affordable. He has the latest technologies and legitimately cares about his patients. I have only had good experiences.
Through several appointments, Dr Kwon has been very professional, skillful, knowledgeable and fast. He appears to have the latest in technology available to him on site for for quick and accurate diagnosis and treatment. I know from experience that Dr Kwon's prices are lower than area competitors ... and yet quality of service is at least as good. I highly recommend him and his pleasant and efficient staff
One word. Tactical - had me in and out super quick with no hassle and provided high quality work as usual. Highly recommended.
My whole family sees Dr. Kwon. His office staff is always warm and welcoming. It's always easy to make an appointment. Dr. Kwon is great with kids and adults. I highly recommend him.
This guy is the real deal. He has the modern equipment and knowledge that you want with a dentist. He is very precise, tactical, clear in communication, and quick! Some people mention his bedside manner being less than perfect (although i think he's a nice guy myself) and i have one thing to say. If you find a dentist that is so good but doesnt ask you how your day is, how much does that bother you? If you're that insecure about your life, go See a therapist where that matters! If you're looking for a DENTIST, definitely give him a try - From my experience, you wont be dissapointed.
Dr. Kwon was very detail oriented and was very patient friendly. Very thorough in his work.
Dr. Kwon took time to explain what he was going to do and was very thorough.
Lectured me on things I was already aware of and continued to do so after acknowledging it initially, which was completely unnecessary & uncomfortable.
I like that he proactively looks for problems and treats them. He doesn't waste a lot of time with small talk and I really appreciate that - another office I went to asked me about 100 personal questions per visit it was pretty uncomfortable.
Dr. Kwon and his entire staff are highly efficient and courteous professionals. The entire office is pristine and the equipment is state of the art which I feel is very important. Dr. Kwon's processes and overall knowledge of dentistry are clearly advanced and this along with his friendly demeanor and integrity is immediately comforting. The dental work I received was performed perfectly and the cost was very fair.
Knowledgable practitioner who performs his duties well.
Dr. Kwon is the best. He is very calm, explains everything he is doing, and tries tirelessly to make sure you leave his office with a healthy mouth. I wouldn't go anywhere else!
The office is just overall professional. James is always friendly when I see him and the receptionist is absolutely adorable! She helped me look up my boyfriends insurance in order to set him up with an appointment as well. They are awesome, I would definitely recommend to anyone!
Very skilled dentist. He got right to work instead of scheduling multiple unneeded appointments. Very straightforward on what needed to be done and how it would be handled. Shows you your xrays and actually explains why he's doing what's he's doing.. I've never been able to smile and now with every appointment I get that much closer to a smile of my own. Thank you
He is a very good doctor! Very quick and very professional!
He is great! I'm terrified of dentists and he makes me very comfortable. He talks to me throughout the entire procedure.
Dr. Kwon is great. I needed a tooth pulled. He explained the procedure very clearly and went to work once I was numb. I complained about a bit of pain so he gave me another shot and that did the trick. I'm not a fan of dental work but Dr. Kwon knows his stuff and keeps things nice and calm.
Very nice doctor. On time, and took the time to explain all procedures.
Dr. Kwon made going to the dentist as pleasant as it can be. He was nice and had a sense of humor which helps aleve the nervousness of it all. I would highly recommend James Kwon, DDS to anyone looking for a dentist.
I was very pleased with the way Dr Kwon explained everything to me. His staff is very friendly and professional.
He runs the practice himself and is the only dentist there. It's obvious he takes pride in his work. His prices are also very fair and he is very nice and easy to talk to.
Everyone in the office is very nice and informative. Dr. Kwon made me feel comfortable during my procedures. I would highly recommend Brite Dentalcare.
Dr Kwon is very knowledgable, used a lot of new technology to help explain what he is seeing, shoes you the prices before starting any procedure, and does most of the work himself- as opposed to having the hygienists do it.
very time efficient and attentive. Understanding of the patients needs and explained thoroughly, the options for treatment.
He knows what he's doing and gets right to the tooth!
Very to the point, recognized my grinding and did some touch up for it. Like all docs not much scaling for the clean - find a Dental Hygienist to do your cleans! (Make sure they scale thoroughly).
Dr. Kwon is very good with kids and helping them not to be scared, even when pulling my son's baby teeth out. He is very organized and fast to minimize the trauma. Also the staff was very helpful.
I am highly satisfied. He did a quick, painless, and well done few fillings. After today's visit, I have referred my sister to Dr. Kwon.
Only had to wait a few minutes and it was an emergency visit that was squeezed in!!
I was a new patient with an emergency visit. I was able to get an appointment right away and when I arrived, I was seen right away. Dr. Kwon explained everything clearly. He made sure I had no pain, giving me additional pain numbing shots as needed. I will continue to see him as my new dentist.
Very honest and frank consultation.
The doctor was very nice. He answered all my questions and didn't try to talk me into unnecessary treatments. I would highly recommend Dr. Kwon to anyone looking for a dentist.
He pulled 3 teeth and cream gave a prescription for antibiotics. He is very professional,takes the time to explain everything he found on x-rays ,will show you them and explains it to you. Not in big hurry, for next patient, wait time was 1 minute.
He was fantastic. I'm that person who normally loathes going to the dentist and avoids it until I'm forced to go because something is wrong. He lives up to all of the positive comments in the rest of these reviews. He was very comforting and attentive. He listened to my concerns and even calmed my nerves when I started freaking out because I had a few cavities. He was able to take care of them right away and even gave me the price beforehand. This is the best dentist I have ever been to and I will be going back in six months for a regular cleaning.
It was great!
Very patient and reassuring.
Dr Known is very through, patient and takes time to explain the procedures and does a great job!! Highly recommended. In addition the office staff are very pleasing and nice to work with.
Very good chair side manners. Quick and effective care. Nitrous Oxide is NOT available at this office, if you are squeamish you may need a different office if you intend to get a procedure done. Simple preventative care was zero copay on my medicare and medicaid which is real nice. The office is very clean, but amenities are limited
Such a great dentist and great staff as well. I needed a dentist immediately due to wisdom tooth pain and they were able to have me come right in even as a new patient ! He was very thurough and made sure I understood everything and even had prices ready before the procedure which I had never had a dentist do it was really nice! The receptionist helped with insurance and had everything prepared and was able to answer so many questions as well. Highly recommend Dr. Kwon to anybody needing a dentist!!
My first visit I was running 10 min late and I was the last appointment of the day. Even though I was late the greeted me with smiles and saw me right away, but didn't rush. Dr. Kwon's bedside manner professional and polite. They treated me like I had been going there for years. He was efficient and painless. He always explained what he was doing before he did it and did I mention painless. Dr. Kwon is a great Dentist and has great taste in music. I definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist in the Palatine area.
Dr. Kwon is a competent professional, but his bedside manner could improve. I had a filling that needed to be repaired, and a cavity that had to be filled. Shortly after he began to fill my cavity, I felt a sharp pain and expressed so. Dr. Kwon asked me "Are you sure?" Seriously? No, I just lurched because I felt a sudden urge to lurch. Also, I felt like Dr. Kwon, rushed, and did not inform me of exactly what he was doing at each step, as my other dentists have before. I'm accustomed to dentists that keep me informed as they do their job, and work to ease my anxiety about having drilling done on my teeth. While Dr. Kwon is a competent professional, I like to fill that my dentist is doing everything reasonable to make me feel at ease, and informing me of exactly what he or she is doing.
short wait, dental cleanings done efficiently. Very organized office.
The best dentist ever!
As always, he is very professional, efficient with excellent approach to patient courtesy!
Dr. James Kwon is a fantastic dentist! I highly recommend him not only as an excellent dentist but also as a very trustworthy person!
Dr. Kwon was very thorough, friendly and made the whole experience for me a very pleasant one despite the procedure I had to do. Definitely will recommend him to family and friends.
Dr. Kwon was professional and timely. The office was spacious and organized. I always love a TV in the dentist office as it helps to focus on something. It has been a while since I have had the dentist clean my teeth and not a tech or hygienist. He was quick and thoughtful in regards to pain levels. I had a small cavity in one of my remaining wisdom teeth, and rather than recommending pulling it (like a previous dentist I had) he told me that a simple fill would help save the tooth. He gave me options as to types of fillings and prices (which my last dentist didn't do). Couldn't ask for more in a dentist!
He is very knowledgeable, friendly and courteous, He explains thing very well and his fees are very very reasonable.
Very professional and I actually felt relaxed during the visit
He was very friendly and took the time to explain things that I didnt understand. This is the best experience I have ever had at the dentist.
It was a good experience and my 5 year old was very comfortable in the clinic. Everything went very smooth and fearless for the child.
awsome job keep up the amazing job
It went extremely well. He's a professional that does excellent work and has the ability to make you feel like his only patient. He genuinely cares about his customers and has surprisingly made me look forward to going to the dentist. A truly selfless person.
Very pleasant, professional and thorough! The online appointment was INCREDIBLY easy and efficient for us busy people! Thanks Dr. Kwon - see you in 6 months or less!
Dr. Kwon was able to see me on short notice. I had cracked a tooth over Labor Day weekend, and Dr Kwon talked me through the crown procedure to help ease my apprehension. Also, at first there was an issue with my insurance, but with an extra call to Delta Dental, Dr. Kwon's office was able to set everything straight.
It was my first visit and I was very impressed with Dr. Kwon and all of his staff. Everyone made me feel comfortable and at ease. I would highly recommend his practice. FIVE STARS :)
A great DDS up dated knows his job and very friendly.
Top notch DDS warm friendly
Explained everything that was being done with my dental procedures today. Made sure I was comfortable and at ease during the entire procedure.
Quick, knowledgeable, gave good feedback.
Excellent bedside manner and very caring toward patients. Would recommend this dentist to anyone! Many thanks for excellent service, Dr. Kwon! :)
He was very patient friendly and proffesional. Will love togo back to that office for my next appt.
The entire staff is very professional and friendly! Dr. Kwon made going to the dentist an easy, painless process. I highly recommend him as your dentist.
Dr Kwon was very knowledgeable, courteous, explained all procedures and advised on treatments. His assistant very pleasant, helpful as well.
He was every bit a true doctor....very impressed! Already recommended him to a friend.
great service by front desk and by doctor. hardly any wait time from time I walked in door.
For a "first"visit Dr. Kwon got to work right away and was friendly and very professional. He must be good at what he does was I was in the chair getting a lot of fillings and work done and I didn't mind it a bit. Mike Teruggi
He's a helpful dentist and very nice.
Dr. Kwon was very friendly, professional and timely. He did a thorough cleaning and I would definitely see him again and recommend him to everyone! Thanks for everything and making the process as painless as possible!
This office is very clean. The staff is very friendly and the environment is comfortable. Pretty sure he may be my family dentist forever.
Dr. Kwon is absolutely the BEST dentist I have ever been to. I was treated with the greatest care and I was always fully informed on what was being done. Even the assistant was very friendly. Highly recommend!!!!!
it was excelent except the bump in my head lol
BEST - BEST - BEST Dentist = EVER! Clean office. Polite staff. Excellent availability. Very knowledgeable about treatment options. He took the time to help me understand my options and he worked with me to make a realist treatment plan. I had lots of work to be done = but no pain. What really makes him a 5 star dentist in my opinion is that his work is so BEAUTIFUL. He's part dentist - part artist. Nimble fingers, calm compassionate demeanor, and skill = beautiful dental work! By far the best dental experience I have ever had!
Professional, explained the situation clearly, and made the dentist office feel comfortable. Would definitely recommend Dr. Kwon to others!
