Most important is patient comfort so please let them know if there is anything they can do to improve your visit. Dr. Matthew Flak, DDS grew up in North Canton, Ohio.

I really like Dr. Flak, but the cleaning I had today was super painful. My gums are pretty cut up and my mouth is sore, it hurts to chew, etc. Never had that happen before from just a cleaning.

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 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.

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 theyused, 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.

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 intothe 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.

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 hadsome 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!

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 tothe 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.

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 tookcare 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.
