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!

Root Canal, Part 2. Dr. Gamalinda's bedside manner and obvious desire to get it just right is so welcome and appreciated. 2 beautifully sealed root ends 3 hr procedure--so numb I dozed off a few times. He and his asst. were a great team.

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!

Dr. Gamalinda is fantastic! I never wait for more than a few moments in the waiting room. He is funny and calming. His staff front of house to back are all kind and intelligent people. The young lady who does the cleaning of my teeth has a gentle touch and a great personality. Dr. Gamalinda is always on top of the latest in technology and extremely informative and helpful. I would recommend him to anyone who needs an experienced, gentle, and highly educated Dentist with great pricing.

I visited Dr. Gamalinda for a routine checkup and cleaning. It had been a while since my last cleaning (1-2 years), and I was trying the Dr. for the first time, as I had moved away from my previous dentist. Overall I was very pleased with my experience. Dr. Gamalinda did the cleaning himself (usually I always have a hygienist do the cleaning), and he was very quick and thorough. He also explains everything he is doing which is nice (instead of only answering questions). I would definitely recommend Dr. Gamalinda!

I've been seeing Dr. G for almost ten years now, and I think he's one of the best dentists in Chicago. He's efficient, highly skilled, kind and has a wonderful way with patients. He makes what can be a very unpleasant experience as pleasant as it can be.

Dr. Gamalinda is the best! On this visit, I requested info on how I might address a single tooth that, in my opinion, ruined my smile. Correction involved dealing with a vulnerable area of my gums and also cosmetic correction. Dr. Gamalinda described several possible options, and took his time to explain the advantages and possible consequences of each way it could be addressed. We found an option that will be affordable for me, and I am currently saving up to have it done. Don't hesitate to see Dr. Gamalinda, even if it's been a while since you've seen a dentist and/or are afraid your teeth and gums are in rough condition. He will do his best to put you at ease while also getting you on a positive path to better dental health.

I had an appointment to see Dr. Gamalinda to pick up my new night guard, which was a quick appointment. While I was there, I asked him about repairing a very small chipped area on my front tooth. I thought I was going to have to make another appointment, but he was so kind to thoroughly explain all the options and once I chose one was able to repair it right then. He was so patient and kind and did not make me feel like I was asking or feeling anything ridiculous. He has such a caring bedside manner!!! The only issue I had in the office was that I paid in full for my night guard, and now I am waiting for a partial refund as the refund is going to the dental office, but that does not take away from my rating.

He's very patient, caring and empathetic to the needs of his patients. Takes the time to provide you with step by step information after asking your preference. Very calming personality which is needed in this high anxiety provoking environment. Seen right away. no wait and no waiting after seated in his chair like other doctor offices where they call you in but you sit in there for another 20-30 minutes. Not here, they call you in and you are seen the moment you get comfortable in the chair. Great experience all around!!!

It was my first time meeting Dr. Gamalinda (recently moved to the area from out of state), and it went very well! Everyone was extremely friendly and answered all of my questions right away. Dr. Gamalinda also took the time to show me my x-rays and explain everything in simple terms. When I asked more questions, he pulled out a graph and diagram that help me to better understand everything he was showing me. Additionally, the office was very clean, which is always a primary concern of mine.

My family was in need of a new dentist about 4 years ago. Dr. Gamalinda has been our dentist since then. He is great with the kids. He also speaks with you and comes up with short term and long term dental plans. He will let you know if you need treatment beyond what he can offer and will refer you to someone that is very professional and capable. I do not hesitate to recommend Dr. Gamalinda and his staff. I don't see me going to another dentist.
