Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. R is very kind and is very upfront with what is going on and what will be needed.
I hate hate hate going to the dentist - that being said this was by far the best experience I’ve ever had. It was fast, pain free and Dr. Ranganathan and co explained what they were doing during the entire process. Also the office is super cool and the exam chairs are super comfortable (massage chairs!). High tech gear and technology.
Offices are nice, clean, and sunny. Staff is very friendly and professional. The office really takes its care to make you feel welcome and comfortable -- little things like having a massage feature on the chair while you get your teeth cleaned, or providing sunglasses so the bright lights don't bother you.
This was the best dental experience I have ever had and I have had a significant amount of dental work done. The office itself is beautiful. They have really gone above and beyond to create a great, welcoming and modern experience. At reception you are asked to complete paperwork on a tablet. After completing, I was taken back to see the dental hygenist within minutes. Lindsey did my cleaning and was absolutely amazing. She was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. Also, the dental chair is a massage chair and the team provides Ray Bans for you to wear under the bright lights. Dr. Ranganathan was helpful and spent a ton of time with me. She showed me details on my X-rays and walked me through any next steps and asked questions! Overall, this was just a wonderful experience and I will recommend State Street Dental to friends and family!
Dr. Ranganathan was so pleasant and made me feel at ease. Her staff was also quite nice and the office overall was very clean and modern. Dr. Ranganathan explained everything clearly for me and I am looking forward to my next appointment.
I was pretty nervous go in to a new dentist after not having dental insurance for several years (thus no visits) but Dr. Ranganathan and her staff were very nice, personable, and so not judgy (which is my only dental fear, weirdly). She and her hygienist were thorough from x-rays to cleaning. The receptionist was also super helpful and very nice!
Very friendly and considerate staff. Gentle and quick cleaning.
Everyone there was a pleasure. The receptionist helped me when I forgot to bring my dental insurance card. The hygienist was extremely informative and made sure I was comfortable. The doctor was helpful. Even the chairs were great - they're massage chairs.
Very friendly and professional staff. The office was very modern and clean.
My visit was extremely pleasant. The dental hygienist was professional and had a great sense of humor during the cleaning. I immediately recommend State Street Dental to my friends upon leaving. I was be using State Street Dental for all of my oral hygiene needs moving forward.
I had a consultation and then a follow-up appointment for a cavity filling. Dr. Ranganathan and the entire office was great. I really appreciated that after my first consultation, I was given a estimate of how much the filling would cost out of pocket after insurance.
The office has a lot of small details that made me feel at home. It's cozy, the staff is personable and thoughtful. Didn't feel rushed or that I was ever waiting long. Wonderful experience would recommend to everyone.
It was a great experience. Everyone was super friendly and it didn't take long at all!
Everyone was very friendly! The office was very nice and clean, the chair is a massage chair which is awesome, the hygienist as well as the dr herself were VERY gentle which is always nice. My appointment was at 8am and I was leaving the building by 835am! Will definitely recommend to everyone I know!
This was the best dental experience I have ever had. A massage chair, hot towel at the end, and lip balm were bonuses. But Dr. R. is professional yet relatable. And, as a person who often has pain even with cleanings-- I had the least amount of pain ever.
Very polite staff and dentist. Nice befsude manner. Professional. I had some concerns beyond basic exam that she didnt follow up on. Seemed more interested in selling their products and dental devices.
I've never left a dentist visit so relaxed. The office is beautiful and immaculate, the receptionist/hygienist is so pleasant and knowledgeable ... and the cherry on top was all the little things that I would never think to expect from a dentist visit: sunglasses while I'm under the bright light, a massage chair while I'm waiting, light music to drown out the drilling, a hot towel on my face after the work (!!!) ...
I really appreciated the way Dr. R took the time to explain my diagnosis and next steps for the treatment plan. She answered all of my questions, and things didn't seem rushed. All of the staff at the office were very helpful and friendly!
I have not seen a dentist in over 5 years. Great team. The clerk was really accommodating. Rose the dental hygienist was super friendly. An Dr. R was awesome. I felt so pampered I didn't want to leave =). Can't wait for the next visit ! A+
Dr. Nanditha was all-around fantastic. I had not been to the dentist in over five years and she made my re-entry into the process extremely easy. She’s welcoming, funny, and definitely an expert in her field. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a new dentist.
State Street Dental is the nicest dental office I've been to. Dr. R is very kind and personable, and I've never had to wait more than 5 minutes in the waiting room. The massage chair and hot towel are extra perks of the cleaning, and really makes the experience more relaxing.
Dr. R is wonderful!!!
The soothing atmosphere of the office and bedside manner of Dr. R and the rest of the staff made for a pleasant trip to the dentist!
Office is really nice, she has very modern and updated equipment she is very nice professional and quick!
Very tech savvy office. Doctor was very patient and made it easy for me to understand what my treatment plan was.
Best dentist I've seen in years!
She is so, so sweet. Seriously one of the nicest people I have ever encountered, and definitely the kindest and most caring dentist. I booked my next appointment before leaving, and would recommend her to anyone (especially people who usually don't like going to the dentist).
Great Visit - had some emergency tooth pain and my normal dentist was OOO so went here to see what was going on and if there was anything they could do. Doctor and Staff were very accommodating, same day appointment and were able to take a look. Unfortunately I need to have a root canal done and the doctor was not able to perform it herself so have to find a different dentist to perform but overall great experience, great staff, and nice clean office
I hate the dentist so for me to rave about one is a big deal. Nanditha is so nice, professional, and makes you feel very comfortable. The office is so luxurious that you feel truly pampered. They even have massage chairs! I truly enjoyed my experience and am excited to come back for a follow-up. I highly recommend Nanditha.
Dr. R was great, she listened to my questions and concerns and explained things so thoroughly. I felt great with her recommendations! Her staff are friendly and nice as well.
Super friendly from check in to departure. Dr. R is very welcoming and did an efficient checkup and painless cleaning. All staff was great and facilities were top notch.
The doctor and staff were extremely helpful and very nice. Always asked if I had any questions about what needed to be done. They thoroughly explained procedures and pricing/insurance. They also gave options for installments for payment and worked with me every step of the way. I was early for my appointment and they were able to take me when I walked in and the estimated time in the chair was almost exact.
Dr. Ranganathan was phenomenal. She provided a very comprehensive treatment plan for me, and made me feel like she had my best interests at heart. She definitely puts the patient first! The office was very nice and staff was professional. She was confident but also in tune to my needs, which was very refreshing. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a dentist!!!
I saw Dr. R twice for a cleaning and filling. She is very kind and also very quick. There was no pain with my filling and it fixed the pain I was having with sweet foods. I have had many fillings and this was one of the better experiences, honestly I didn't feel any pain and barely discomfort when the novacaine was administered. The office is very nice clean and spacious. I was able to come in, have a filling, and be back at work in about a half hour. They were also very flexible when meetings came up and I needed to reschedule. I'm also hoping this review will ward off the tooth fairy from causing future cavities.
This was by far the best dental visit I've ever had. Everything was perfect right from the support staff to Dr Nanditha. Everyone was very polite and courteous. What amazed me the most was how quickly Dr N got my tooth extracted and I was out of there in 15 minutes. As per my previous dentist, it was going to be a complicated extraction. But Dr N made it look like child's play! I will definitely return to Dr N for future dental consultations.
It was one of the best doctor Visits I ever had. Lovely doctor and a friendly an amazing employees. I would definitely recommend her.
I had a great experience.
This office team is amazing. Nanditha (the doctor) will do a consultation, explain her strategy and send you a full disclosure of what you are paying for. Everything is clear and transparent so you don't need to take blind decisions. Anna, the receptionist, is always on top, she will run pre-estimates within a few hours and always follow up with any email you send to her. Their service is outstanding!!
Second visit with Dr. Ranganathan, and it went great! The office is absolutely beautiful and the staff is so friendly and helpful. I have never been a big fan of gbing to the dentist, but they make the experience as pleasant as possible.
Everyone was very friendly and I was taken care of right away. The office is gorgeous and I loved the extra touches of a massage chair and a warm towel at the end of my cleaning.
The office has a very neat setting. The staff is nice, Dr Ranganathan is knowledgeable and professional. Will go back again. Recommended.
This place is amazing! Found it by chance on ZocDoc due to its proximity to my work and I'm so happy I did. The office is well decorated and maintained, t's like going to a spa instead of the dentist. Everyone that worked there, especially Dr. Ranganathan, is super friendly and knowledgeable. Would absolutely recommend (and already have to several people)!
The entire experience exceeded my expectations. Everyone was kind and informative. Also the office is beautiful, peaceful, and full of relaxing amenities! So happy to have found Dr. Ranganathan.
Dr. Ranganathan and her team were kind, thorough, and responsive. Easily one of the best dentists I've worked with!
Great location & very nice office. The entire team here was very nice and professional!
I am one of the most nervous patients in the world… And I was completely relaxed I would almost say I enjoyed myself and I would highly recommend This doctor and State Street dental to everyone !
This was my best experience with a dentist. The staff was amicable and professional. Dr. Ranganathan herself was cheerful and professional (as well as nonjudgmental of my dental habits :D). Moreover, my cleaning was painless. The wait time was very short and the premises were great. The chair I waited in was a massage chair! Also the hot towel at the end of the visit was a nice touch.
Dr. Ranganathan is one of the best dentist I've had! Her office is so neat and has great amenities (including massage chairs and warm face towels). I was seated within five minutes of my arrival and probably taken care of. She has excellent bedside manner and is very skilled, honest, and professional. If you're looking for a great dental experience in Chicago, I highly recommend!
I would highly recommend Dr. R and the entire staff at State Street Dental. Everybody that attended to me was professional, courteous, and welcoming. Dr. R made sure to fully explain every step so that I was not in the dark about any of the procedures. She is an excellent dentist that makes sure to listen and cater to your health.
Beautiful office and a really nice staff. Already recommended Dr. R to my coworker and husband!
My experience with Dr. Ranganathan was excellent! Her entire staff was extremely friendly and professional. The office is very clean and well decorated and they have all of the latest technology. I would recommend her office to everyone in the Loop!
Fantastic doctor. Very calm and knowledgable
Dr. Nanditha Ranganathan is amazing! Her entire team took great care of me from the moment I walked in the door. She made sure to listen to all of my concerns and assured we would go over everything. She was very informative and comforted me when she discovered a cavity (my first one ever!). The office space is beautiful and the chairs have a massage feature! I am looking forward to having her as my dentist long term.
Shez awesome ! Felt No pain what so ever during the process
Dr. Ranganathan was extremely nice and professional. No one likes going to the dentist, but she and the rest of the staff made me feel comfortable and welcome. I was able to get in and out in a reasonable amount of time and get right back to work. I would highly recommend Dr. R to anyone!
Nanditha was so pleasant, and lovely. I HATE going to the dentist, and was quite nervous. She put me at ease and explained everything she was doing, and why. The dental hygienist was a little rough when doing the cleaning, but overall a great experience.
Office staff and doctor were all very pleasant and enjoyable to work with. I am very happy that I found this dentist office. Perfect location as well!
Dr. Ranganathan has a great bedside manner and is very professional. She is also very thorough. Highly recommend!
The appointment went very well and everybody in the office was extremely courteous and professional. I will be going back and would recommend her to anybody else who is in the market for a dentist.
Very professional and a pleasure to visit. I did not have to wait to be seen. I will continue to go back and recommend to any friends looking for a new dentist!
Dr. R. and her practice were fantastic. Zero wait time, professional, comfortable. Sunglasses were provided for the bright dentist's light, and the patient chair had a massage feature. All kinds of little things to make the experience just that much better. This was my first visit to a dentist after moving to Chicago. I don't feel a need to look anywhere else for future visits.
Dr. Ranganathan is very attentive and professional. Her support staff are extremely kind and accommodating. Absolutely excellent office!
Best experience at the dentist I have ever had!!! Dr. R and staff are very friendly and they make sure the patient is as comfortable as possible. Dr. R explained each step of my dental procedure and answered all of my questions thoroughly and thoughtfully. So glad State Street Dental is close to my office! Highly recommend!!!!!!
Extremely caring and an excellent professional. She makes you feel comfortable and explain the procedure in detail. Always attentive to you during the procedure.
Best dental visit I've ever had!
Very pleasant experience. No pain, no waiting, peaceful and pleasant environment!
This is my first visit to dentist in a few years (no need to say how I don't like seeing a dentist). Dr. R was very kind and professional. She has a very gentle touch, her assistant, on the other hand, has a heavier hand when handling the machines that go into your mouth. They are both really good at what they do and always check if I'm comfortable. I might not be the easiest case because I have a small mouth that can only open at a certain width and tend to gag whenever I have anything down my throat but Dr. R was very patient with me and I really appreciate that. The office was great and everyone from the front desk to the doctor were super friendly!
Dr. R is fantastic! She's friendly, courteous and explains every step of the procedure. I needed my sealants replaced and as far as dental visits go, it was pleasant and totally painless. Not to mention, the staff is phenomenal. The office is decorated beautifully, and the receptionist and hygienists are beyond friendly. I would highly recommend State Street Dental!
My first visit to Dr. Ranganathan's office was great! I am never a fan of going to the dentist, but she and the rest of staff made me feel very welcome and comfortable. Throughout the cleaning, she checked in on my comfort level and made sure I was doing okay. I will definitely be making the switch to her for my general dentistry needs!
Dr and her assistant did a great and fast job on my fillings. Dr. Ranganathan is very gentle with the needle. Great office and staff.
Dr. Ranganathan was very nice, friendly, fast and liked to talk to me. She has one of the nicest doctor's offices I've ever been in, certainly the nicest dentist office. They even give you sunglasses to wear so that the light doesn't blind you while they're checking your teeth. She was great! Highly recommend to anyone.
She was Awesome. No Wait in her office and Easy to make an appointment.
This was my second visit with her. She is excellent and very informative. You will not be disappointed, your in great hands.
Best experience I've had going to a dentist in a long time!
They have thought of everything here! The dental chair is a massage chair, they give you sunglasses so the light doesn't hurt your eyes, and chap stick at the end. Almost makes me want to go to the dentist...almost.
First time seeing a new dentist as I had been seeing the same dentist my entire life... very pleased with Dr and staff. Everyone is great, friendly, efficient and helpful even though I was a little apprehensive, it couldn't have been a more positive experience.
Dr. Ranganathan, dental assistant and office manager were very friendly and welcoming. They explain everything and small details make it into a great experience. Beautiful office as well!
The doctor is very kind and explains everything to you in a manner that is easy to understand. She really makes sure you are informed about your oral health. I would recommend her to my friends and family. Great bedside manner and great job with the exam and cleaning. The office is immaculately clean and comfortable (well designed too). It's a little hard to find (there is no sign, just one door wedged in between buildings downtown). Also, you have to call the receptionist to get in. I'd recommend to plan on getting there a bit earlier the first visit to give yourself some time to find the office and get in. Once you're in though, you shouldn't have a problem finding it again. The office does have a great centralized location, they also take into account your lunch hour and try to accommodate you. My only qualm: the dental hygienist did not floss, which is crucial during a cleaning appointment. She was in a bit of a rush because I said I had to go back to work, so that can be attributed to my sense of urgency. Overall great appointment. I really liked the doctor. Office was great. Service was friendly. Definitely would recommend!
Very nice, very professional, and she and the hygienist went out of their way to explain why they're doing every maneuver. She recommended certain procedures to help my long term dental health but was merely informal and not pushy about scheduling the procedure. Definite recommend for any loop employees.
Very nice and professional. Great staff too.
Easy checkup. Friendly staff.
Fast, effective, and very much to the point. One of the best experiences I have had on a dental visit.
Had a great experience with the entire crew. The office is very inviting. I will be back.
Love this dental office and Dr. Ranganathan is a great addition!
