I love Dr. Flak and the other staff that work in this office. They’re always on time, always kind and trustworthy, and they’re super funny and make going to the dentist a fun time. Highly recommend!!
I really liked the young women Hygienist. I forgot her name very sweet and professional.
Very nice and considerate!
Dr. Flak is great! I went here after a friend recommended him and was not disappointed. He has great hours (including 7 am cleanings) and I was in and out of the appointment quickly. The TVs on the ceiling were a bonus!
I hate that I cant remember her name but the dental assistant age 31 was absolutely perfect. Sorry if I was rude dental visit make me nervous
From the moment I stepped through the door they were amazing professionals. They make sure to make you feel as comfortable as possible. I'm extremely uneasy about going to the dentist, but these guys made sure to let me know that the patient comes first. I look forward to my next appointment!
The staff and doctors were very friendly, answered any questions I had, and made the process much easier and painless compared to other dentists. And despite being busy, the wait time was very short.
Dr. Flak was great, as always! In and out in less than an hour, great bedside manner but doesn't try to get your life story while his hands are in your mouth. Hygienists and front desk were friendly, too!
I had no insurance, and the doctor's explanation for options of treatment was very clear.
The hygienist was a bit rough, but very pleasant. Dr. Flak was warm, efficient, and knowledgeable.
Dr. Flak is the best!
Dr. Flak and the rest of his office were some of the nicest professionals I've been around! Every move was explained to me and I felt comforted throughout.
Very friendly... i will visit again for sure
Quick and friendly as always! In and out within 45 min.
Friendly staff and great service. Would recommend anyone to go to Dr. Flak.
Effecient, yet thorough cleaning with Dr. Flak and his hygienist. Highly recommended.
I went for a general 6-month cleaning and had a great experience. Everyone is very professional, but also nice. I like the windows that look out into the city. They also have TV's that you can watch while you get your teeth cleaned.
Limited interaction with Dentist, but it was a basic cleaning and X-Ray so working with Hygienist was adequate. Friendly and professional staff with no wait.
I liked the experience overall. Nice tech and dentist. I will definitely be going back.
Dr. Flak is a cool guy. His staff is exceptional and I'd recommend them to anyone!
Great bedside manner and worked very quickly! I really enjoyed working with him. The hygienist was very rough with my teeth, and it hurt quite a bit when she was working on my teeth. I really enjoyed the x-ray equipment they used, not at all clunky. Very cool to get the x-rays while sitting right in the chair.
Dr. Flak and the office staff were fantastic. The hygienist was a little rough for my taste, but I'm super sensitive, so I think it's more of a personal problem. Dr. Flak was personable but worked efficiently, which I really appreciated. In and out in 45 minutes, including forms and x-rays. Can't ask for much more.
Friendly and efficient staff! Their feedback was professional and I didn't feel like I was being scolded (like I had at past offices). I would definitely see Dr. Flak again.
Unlike previous dentists, I had a great experience here this morning. I arrived at 7:59am for an 8am appointment. They only made me fill out one small privacy form b/c they had all my info from Zocdoc. I was taken into the chair within 3-4 minutes. The hygienist and the doctor were very nice, did quick work and had me on my way in 45 minutes total. I'll definitely be back.
The Dental Hygienist and Matthew Flak were great. I would definitely recommend and come back.
The hygienist was great too!
I was very pleased with the care I received at Dr Flaks office. I had not been to the dentist in more than 4 years. They made me feel welcome and comfortable. They answered every question I had. Very successful appointment and I am glad to now have a dentist I am excited to go to!
Dr. Flak was personable, friendly, and courteous. He has a very easy manner about him and made the visit a breeze - and this is coming from someone with really bad dental anxiety! The office overall was very clean and had some pretty awesome technology. The TV is positioned directly above the dental chair, facing down at the patient - so you can watch while you're leaned back and be distracted. That was pretty helpful!
Totally happy after my visit!
He is so nice!!! I'm forever coming back here.
I had a great experience with the office of Matthew Flak, DDS. Everyone from the admin to the doctor were very cordial from when I entered to when I left the appt. I would recommend this office to anyone!
Really quick appointment (under an hour). The staff was friendly and the office was very nice.
Everyone in the office was friendly and professional.
Dr. Flak, Serena and the entire office were amazing! We just moved to Chicago and didn't know any dentists. Dr. Flak was very knowledgeable while being friendly too. Serena made me feel very comfortable and was very kind - going to the dentist is not my favorite thing to do. The front desk staff welcomed us warmly and answered all my questions. I've already told my family to choose Dr. Flak for all their dental needs.
I was so nervous going to the dentist for the first time in a while, but everyone at the office was so friendly and made sure I was comfortable
Kind, funny, thorough, wonderful support staff and nurses.
Everyone was so nice and friendly! When asking "how are you?" They actually looked for a response. The listened and reflected on my concerns and questions about my teeth. They told me exactly what they were going to do and took care of me throughout the whole visit. Afterwards, they followed through with their promises of checking my concerns and and giving me recommendations. I have found my new dentist for good!
Both Doctor Flak and my hygienist were professional, friendly, and took time to ask me questions to get to know me. No gimmicks either- he didn't need to perform any extravagant procedure for a routine cleaning.
