Brite Dental is a hidden gem in the Chicagoland area! Why do I say Chicagoland? Because I come all the way from Lincoln Park to get my teeth cleaned and taken care of! I've tried other dentists in Chicago, but Istill keep going back! Where else can you have the dentist clean your teeth?

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 nowbeen 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.

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 multitudeof 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 doanything 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.

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.

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 proceduresand 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.

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

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 copayon my medicare and medicaid which is real nice. The office is very clean, but amenities are limited

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 tobe 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!

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 experiencethat 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

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 ithink 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.

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.
