I have no doubt in Dr. Yahav's medical capabilities, granted I saw him for minor procedures. However, my 3 stars come from the level of poor admin (calling patients on time, ordering the right things from third party vendors on time, billing accurate amounts as per agreements) and the lack of billing transparency here. If you're looking for a quick fix that costs a few hundred bucks, Dr. Yahav may be the guy as he works fast. But if the procedure costs a few grand, I recommend staying away, as you'll feel rushed / pressured into decisions only to have continuous surprises down the road (e.g., billing higher than agreed upon, appointments made many weeks after what was promised, very little understanding of the process and what to expect after your procedures).

Absolutely terrible in admin and management. I have waited 3+ months to get a simple transfer of documents and called at least 20 times to the office only to be falsely promised things will be taken cRe of "immediately" each time. Each time a promise was made to call me back, I receive zero calls and have to follow up. When I attempt to give some direct feedback over the phone regarding this, receptionist cuts me off and rushes to hang up the phone. Dr Yahav is competent, but the admin at this office has spun out of control and will make your life a living hell.

I went to Dr. Yahav for a consult on my fill ins. He tried to get me to get porcelain "onlays." When I said that I can only afford new fill ins he pressured me into getting the more pricey options. Meanwhile, I almost walked out because he was so pushy but stayed because he agreed to go ahead and do the ceramic fill ins. Fast forward 3 months, I'm in pain and seeing a new dentist who is fantastic and had no qualms about re-doing my fill ins. Didn't even understand why I was offered porcelain anyway. If you want to be stressed out at an appointment, go to Dr. Yahav. If you want a stress free experience, I suggest you go elsewhere.

To say that Dr. Yahav and his team are amazing is an understatement! Millie greets you with the warmest smile; you feel welcomed immediately. Connie, dental hygienist , is very energetic , warm, and friendly. She smiles from the time you come into the patient chair. She is extremely sweet! Dr. Yahav is very attentive, warm, knowledgeable, and caring. You can tell that he is genuinely vested in the comfort and overall well-being of his patients. He made me feel so comfortable and assured me from beginning to end that they would take care of me. I was terrified of getting fill-ins! Dr. Yahav did 4 fill-ins in under 15 minutes, and completely pain free! The office is state-of -the -art and he uses tools with the latest, advanced technology. I am very satisfied and I recommend Chicago Smile Center to anyone that is nervous about going to the dentist. At Chicago Smile Center, you are treated like a friend! Thank you so much to the CSC team!

He was so comforting. I hate getting dental work done, hadn't gone for 4 years and he said I was all good. The technology was pain free, for my mouth at least. Well, it hurt a bit- but that was just uncomfortable! The cleaning was so quick and efficient and he wanted me to let him know how I felt every step of the way :P .

Dr. Yahav saw me on little to no notice, determined I had an impacted wisdom tooth ready to erupt and pulled it all in less than half an hour. He informed me that I needed to get my mouth deep cleaned and schedule a surgery to get the rest of my wisdom teeth out. Thanks!

I came in and gave the front desk my insurance information (waited 45min). Dr. Yahav seemed intelligent and helpful, recommended a longer lasting filling than the one that had previously fallen out. I was asked to cover the expenses out of pocket and deal with the insurance company on my own because "they didn't trust students to be on time," or something obscure along those lines. Then, the insurance company said their policy is to reimburse dentists, not patients. So we had to haggle Dr. Yahav's assistant/spose for the insurance reimbursement. Several months later and after many frustrating phone calls, I got a check for about one third of the original procedure amount. I'm not sure how much of this is the fault of their administration vs. the insurance plan, but they certainly weren't helpful in solving my issue! (not to mention their lack of trust in me from the beginning)

I have visited a few times and for the most part my experience was pleasant as far as procedures are concerned. When it comes to billing, that was a different issue. I am still on my mothers insurance so she takes care of all payment arrangements and for my invisalign things got a but shady. He was supposed to bill the insurance and flex pay for a portion and then we financed the rest. He financed the entire fee and we now have to go though the insurance to get reimbursed. That is not what my mother agreed too. They have been on the phone several times trying to straighten things out and I don't know all the details but its a mess. He will rushes you to make decisions. I'm not one to be rushed into things and I am pretty stern with my opinion and not easily swayed but for other who are not, Yahav can be a bit of a bully for lack of a better term. He is not a mean person, but he can be very pushy. Over all, he has done a great job with my teeth. I have had them cleaned 2 times, 4 wisdom teeth pulled all at once which went very well and he is doing my invisalign. No complaints about his work, but he can be very pushy. Be aware!

Dr Jonathan is a capable dentist but I felt very rushed during my visit. He was attending different patients at the same time and running around from room to room. He came in my room and started cleaning my teeth right away. I had questions for him but I didnt even get a chance to talk. Overall I would not recommend him. There are many capable dentists who will be courteous and take time to explain the procedures.

I have seen Dr. Yahav three times in the past year. First of all, his office has spectacular views! It is in the Hancock Center and definitely makes the routine dentist visit more pleasurable. His staff was extremely professional and friendly, and the teeth cleaning (which I usually hate!) was fast and efficient. Dr. Yahav had to do some extra work on my back molars, because I had a cavity on one of my upper molars as well as a deep cavity on a bottom molar. I had to get a regular filling on the upper tooth cavity which Dr. Yahav took care of very quickly. I then found out that I was going to need a porcelain cap for the bottom molar, because of the depth and severity of the cavity. Dr. Yahav's bedside manner was excellent and he (almost) completely alleviated any of my concerns. He took the mold for my tooth and put in a semi-permanent filling in my tooth and told me to wait a week and come back in to put the porcelain cover in. Putting the porcelain cover back in took NO TIME at all! It fits perfectly and I can't even feel that it is there. He is an excellent dentist and extremely kind. I recommend him for anyone in the Chicago area!

I haven't been to the dentist in some time because I didn't have one I could trust. This experience DID NOT help! I was pressured to have additional work done (beyond a typical cleaning) that I could not afford at the time, but the doctor and staff kept insisting. I eventually just cancelled my follow up appointment because they were stressing me out!
