Qualifications and Experience
I have always believed that every person deserves quality dental care and a healthy smile. As your dentist, it is my job to help you achieve this. I am committed to developing and maintaining long term relationships with all of my patients and you can feel confident in knowing that I strive to provide the best treatment for each and every one of them. I received my Bachelor Degree from Northwestern University in 1982 and attended Loyola University Dental School where I received my Doctorate in Dental Surgery degree in 1986. I enhance my education and keep up-to-date with changes in dentistry by participating in continuing education courses in general, cosmetic and restorative dentistry. I began practicing dentistry in 1986 at a multi-specialty dental practice in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. It was the winter of 1990 that I started working for a local dentist in the Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago and fell in love with the people and the community. In 1991 I opened my own practice on Chestnut Street and in June 2000, I moved my office to its present location on Walton Street. Over the years I have been asked to be the featured speaker at local schools and businesses as well as the Girl Scouts. I have sponsored Northbrook hockey for many years and I have the honor of serving as a “mentor dentist” and working directly with many dental students at the University of Illinois Dental School in Chicago. My patients know me as a compassionate, trustworthy dentist, who cares about them and their dental health. I take time to talk with each patient and together we determine what treatment option is best for them. I invite you and your family to come visit our office and I would consider it a privilege to help you with your dental needs.
Verified Patient Reviews
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Block! She was thorough and you can tell that she is very passionate about her job. She talked exactly the right amount and only asked questions when she wasn't cleaning your teeth so that you could answer (rare)! She's also very funny. I will definitely be returning.
She was nice and caring. She always wanted to make sure I was comfortable
I don't usually respond to review requests, but this is well warranted. Dr. Block and her team and the office as a whole are amazing! Great bedside manner, very kind, professional, efficient yet extremely thorough. I have finally found my go-to Chicago dentist! Thanks Dr. Block and team. Keep up the excellent work. See you in 6 months!
Dr. Block is very kind and a great dentist! I highly recommend her
My experience with Dr. Block was delightful, for a dentist! She understood my immediate need which was to re-cement my cap for a job interview the next morning! She reassured me that my teeth weren't cracking down the middle but, that I just needed a good cleaning. What I thought was a piece of my tooth attached to my dental floss was just, a very large piece of plaque! YIKES!!! Anyway, I would go back to her but, I got the job and now, she's no longer in my zip code! She's delightful and a great dentist!
Dr. Block is very sweet and very professional. She asked for my questions and answered honestly and thoroughly. I'm so glad I found her by chance!
Dr. Nancy is excellent. She's experienced, courteous and welcoming. Straightforward and honest with her assessments, I'll be sure to recommend to friends and family in the area.
I strongly discourage you from seeing Dr. Block. This is the first time in my almost 30 years of life to be coming to a doctor who tells you they won't help you! First I was maid to wait over 30 minutes, although I called 30 minutes before to reconfirm the time and was told to come on time. When the doctor finally showed up, she took another 15 minutes to tell me she is not going to help me and that I'm to keep going with a hole in my tooth. Please do yourself a favor and never see any other doctor, but this one.
Overall experience was excellent. Dr. Block was friendly, professional and very helpful in addressing questions and concerns. Appointment was right on time and finished promptly.
I was greeted by the dentist directly, shown to my seat and was promptly treated. Good visit, very nice.
I love Dr Block. I always leave here so happy with sparkling teeth.
Nancy was very professional and incredibly nice. She took the time to answer all my questions, even if they were very basic ones. She was very thorough in her analysis and went the extra distance in making sure I was comfortable before I left.
Awesome helped me quickly when I was having tooth pain, and got me on track to getting my teeth healthy again Glad to have found a great dentist in Chicago!
Sincerely the most painless doctor I have dealt with, she's lovely and I went from avoiding the dentist to looking forward to my next check up!
She was great!
Dr. Block and Christina are awesome!
Scarcely have I been so well attended at a restaurant let alone at the dentist's office. Dr. Block was prompt, personable, professional, and highly capable. I highly recommend her to anyone in the area that wants a higher caliber dentist and a higher caliber person.
great! extremely personable. you can tell she truly cares about the patient.
She is so nice. I got in right away and I had to wait maybe 3 minutes before she came in. Highly recommend !
