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.

They were quick and to the point. I had to wait for maybe 5 min in the waiting room before they called me. The hygienist was professional and did an amazing job. The dentist came in and did a final check up and as always friendly and professional. Staff is always friendly, helpful and well groomed. They take care of themselves and they pass that caring to their patients. Good place to visit. Do not get scare because the front of the store looks a little run down. Inside, it is clean, safe and very family oriented.

I am a difficult, scaredycat patient, and found Dr. Gamalinda via many positive review online that spoke highly and his ability to work with people like me. I was not disappointed. Dr. Gamalinda made every effort to put to at ease during my initial consultation (which is NOT an easy thing to do), and presented me with a positive option within my budget. I required a pretty extensive set of procedures right away, and opted to schedule three hours of work to address these issues for my first surgical appointment. For me it was a very bold move, but it was also most definitely the right decision. My previous dentist offered nitrous oxide, and at first I was hesitant to schedule with Dr. Gamalinda because he didn't offer it. His assistant described what their practice offered instead--a strong oral anti-anxiety medication given shortly before the procedure, along with the option of wearing dark glasses and listening to music via headphones during the surgery. I eagerly took them up on these options, and they worked really well for me. I was only vaguely aware of what was happening during my surgery (and that's exactly what I want during a procedure), and hardly even felt the shots that were given to deaden surgical sites in prep for the work. I now look in the mirror and feel so much more happy and confident about the appearance of my smile. I will not hesitate to recommend Dr. Gamalinda to friends. Quality work with a gentle touch and excellent, caring followup...very happy to have found him.

Dr. Mark was very nice...asked about my problem (a tooth from my upper plate broke loose) and he gave me a choic of having it put back into the plate or duplicate the entire plate. At my age, I chose putting the tooth right back into its place in the plate. Within an hr. he had his Dental Lab partner do the work, and It was done! I would recommend him to anyone.

I was seen very quickly. I was a new patient this visit, so even though I arrived early, it took me a few minutes past my appt. time to complete paperwork. After the initial cleaning with the hygentist, Dr. Gamalinda came in, introduced himself, welcomed me and was very thorough in the time he spent with me. The front desk office staff was also very professional and courteous. I recommend Dr. Gamalinda and his staff most definitely !!!
