He is the absolute best! I’m terrified of getting work done on my teeth, but he definitely put my mind at ease. This past year I’ve had 4fillings done and each had a chance of a root canal being needed however his skill with a drill allowed me to escape that fate. I also had 4 wisdom teeth removed this year; he and his staff again were absolutely wonderful at putting me at ease considering my phobia of dentists and made the experience as stress free as it could possibly be. Finally I had a bridge fall out and again he was excellent at making me feel comfortable while he quickly did the work required to reattach it. He made sure I knew and understood what needed to be done and communicated what my expected costs were before any work was done, and because I’m on a budget that communication was essential to me staying within my means. Honestly I couldn’t not offer him and his staff a higher recommendation. So as a final note I want to extend my extreme gratitude to Dr.Gamalinda and his staff for all that they do. If you are looking for a dentist look no further because they are the best!

I was at Dr. Mark Gamalinda’s office today for consultation for my dental work. He was so professional and gave me a thorough explanation of my options and the pros and cons of the treatments. He gave me a clear picture of my options and offered me an alternative treatment, to my advantage! He was not merely thinking of what he can get from doing the procedure, but rather was thinking about the long term effect on my dental work even if that means less expensive treatment, which means less money for him! I just admire him for his honesty and very excellent work ethic which you don’t find a lot nowadays anywhere! Thank you Dr. Gamalinda! May God bless you more!

The problems I had were less with the doctor and more with the actual office and other staff. Office wasn't very clean. There aren't any actual rooms, just makeshift walls that separate patients which means ZERO privacy. Asked if there were other options for a procedure that was suggested and got a really rude look. Payment options are either in full or you have the option to apply for a credit card which seems bizarre to me. Overall I liked Dr. Gamalinda but I wouldn't go back to that office.

This visit was for cosmetic reasons. Dr. Gamalinda turned to chipped teeth in the very front of my mouth in to perfect teeth. I also had a tooth with a really bad gum line, which he made into a tooth with no signs of a very receding gum line. I am very thankful to have him as my Dentist. Thanks Dr. Gamalinda.

My son hated going to the dentist until I switched him over to Dr.Gamalinda. Now dentist appointments aren’t a fight and he is actually excited to go. Dr. Gamalinda is a very delicate wonderful dentist and even though I moved over 40 miles away we still make the trip out to see him. Thank you for being so good to us both.

Our entire family has been seeing Dr. Gamalinda for well over 20 years, ever since he began his practice. Presently, we live in Lake County and still make the drive into Chicago when we're in need of his services. He is the most professional and courteous Doctor we have, and his staff are a reflection of his training. He has been there for our regular as well as for our emergencies. One highlight is he often calls us at home to do a health check after we've had major dental work done. He's the best!

Having gone an unconscionable five years between dentist's appointments, I was prepared for plenty of bad news and a stern lecture during my first visit here.Thankfully, neither came to pass - Dr. Gamalinda was straightforward, understanding, and a pleasure to be seen by; he walked me through every step of what he was doing and kept a professional yet relaxed tone throughout. He, the hygienist, and everyone on staff were all great - I scheduled a follow up appointment with no hesitation. Great first experience with a new office - highly recommended!

What a great guy! I'm one of those people who DREADS the dentist, as every time I walk in the door, I end up with a root canal. Today was no different (LOL--ugh), but Dr. Gamalinda was so easy-going: great pricing, in-office root canal, no pain, no guilt-trips or hard sells, and headphones so I could (sort-of) distract myself with a podcast during the proceedings. I still hate going to the dentist, but Dr. Gamalinda is the closest I've ever come to someone who would get me to come back. I know this sounds like faint praise, but coming from me, it's huge. Kudos to him and his wonderful staff!
