Particularly with all the work that I needed done, I must say I had an overall excellent experience with Dr. Bicakci. She is very personable, and took the time to explain everything, incorporating images that she had taken. I felt verycared for, and the pain control was excellent (there was none). The team in her office does an excellent job. I am happy to say, I have found my dentist.

Very friendly, with excellent communication skills. Highly trustworthy! I particularly appreciate how she includes her process of decision-making in formulating recommendations in our discussion, and methodically reviewed the xrays.

Had my teeth cleaned a month ago by Dr. Nihal Backci. It was very well done and professional. Suggested I get my wisdom teeth taken out for better overall dental health. They worked with me on getting a time where Iwouldn't miss work. They are great for people who work 9-5 like me, because they have later hours. Dr. Ozdemir Bicakci did the extraction on my wisdom teeth. He was very professional and did a great job on making me feel comfortable during a very stressful surgery. They even called me Monday morning to see how I was feeling. I would highly recommend them for your dental needs.

Doctor Nihal Bicakci is very good and experienced. I was literally afraid and hated going to the dentist but that was before I met her. Once I started going to see doctor Nihal and her husband, they changed my bad apprehensionabout dentists and I'm no longer anxious when going to see the dentist. I have a healthier month and a beautiful smile now thanks to them. Last but not least the hygienist Stephanie is incredibly nice and always do a good job as well. I strongly recommend going there.

Dr Nihal is the real deal. I was so scared to have a rear tooth extracted, she was so patient and had it out in no time. The staff are really friendly, wouldn't trust my smile to anyone else.

Dr. Nihal is fantastic! For the past 9 years I have been traveling back to St. Louis to see my dentist. I'm super picky! I've tried 6 in Chicago to no avail. The other day I tried this practice. So elated!Dr. Nihal and her staff are wonderful! I finally found a dentist I trust. She was professional, explained everything, and was great with a nervous Nellie like me. I've not found anyone that can get a full set of X-rays and her team accomplished it! (I'm a terrible patient). The whole staff is wonderful and I highly recommend. I had a cleaning and then three cavities filled. She also found a fractured tooth and was able to save my healthy tooth without costly procedures. She really thought about the best way to protect the tooth. I'm happy! And trust me...that rarely happens.

Dr. Bicakci was great and took care of me and they offered a few different treatment plans to find a way to pay for my care that worked for me and was covered by my insurance. Everyone at Lincoln Dental care was professional and friendly and very accomodating.

After we refused to do the full set X-ray as we already did it in Feb 2014. The doctor showed up and only examined me by looking into my mouth in seconds. She did not look into my husband mouth even.Then she said if you wanna be my patient we need to have an x-ray done . We asked about cleaning and she said no cleaning and that is it for consult visit you can come back for cleaning seriously ?? I felt we were treated as source of money not a patient at all. Thanks god we knew this before we go for anything in this service. Btw we came in 10 min earlier than our appointment and we also filled all the papers online before we come. With all this we waited about 1 hour before someone came to us for the full X-ray .

Unsure yet. I had the original work done in San Antonio, TX and it was quoted to be a third of the price. I still need to figure out of this place is trying to fleece me or are more comprehensive.

It was wonderful :) Her staff is super nice, and she was amazing! She made me feel so comfortable and relaxed, very fun lady actually! But she gets straight to the point with your teeth, which i loved. I felt reallyinformed. I was actually very nervous at first, because you never know what to expect when you move and have to get a new dentist, but i am so glad I found Dr. Bicakci. The environment was wonderful. The most comfortable i have ever felt at a doctors office for sure. I'm sticking with her for sure!

New dentist for me. She was professional and carefully outlined how further work can be completed with an insurance breakdown giving me a good idea of out of pocket costs before things begin.
