Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Murad is a great dentist! I am always confident going into First Family Dental knowing I'm in good hands!
Dr. Murad is a very good professional. I am very happy that I found for her. I'll continue treatment on Dr. Murad and I would rewrite my daughters to the clinic. 1st Family Dental is now our friend :)
Very professional, clean office, very gentle doctor. HIGHLY recommend :)
Very nice staff!!
Dr Murad was very sweet and very gentle when looking at my teeth! Highly recommend!
She super helpful and nice
As usual Dr. Sandy Murad is very talented in her profession. Excellent up to date knowledge in technologies used in dentistry. She explains treatment plan and out of pocket cost very thoroughly. The team of professionals in her office is fantastic and their team work is excellent.
Best dental experience I have had. So easy and painless everything explained to me.
Dr Murad has an excellent bedside manner. She's very professional, straight forward whatever treatment plan you need and fast doing her work. No sugar coating, she'll give you options what can be done to bring that best smile back. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend her!
I came to Dr. Murad on referral from a dentist I trust. We had a very short wait and the receptionist was quite pleasant. My son was seen briefly by the Dr and in that time I was told that they do often work on kids teeth but not necessarily with kids as young as my son (18 months). I wish Dr. Murad had been more forthcoming in the details as to why a pediatric specialist would be preferable, but overall she was kind. My issue with this office was with the assistant. She looked at my sons teeth, made snap judgements and gave what I felt to be medical advice- which being a healthcare professional (Rad Tech) I know is not her place. I felt dismissed and like I was being rushed out by the assistant- when the doctor had said I was welcome to weigh the options. In total we were in the exam room perhaps 5 minutes. I left with many unanswered questions and yet another referral. I will not return for dental care for any of my family, child or otherwise. Another assistant did intercede and offer additional information, which was quite acccomodating of her given my perplexed state. Had we had her from the start, my opinion of our short visit would have drastically changed.
Dr. Murad is the best dentist that I have work on my teeth, and I have had a lot of work done. All of the staff in the office are very pleasant. If you are having trouble with your teeth or just need a cleaning call Dr. Murad's office. You will leave satisfied!
Dr. Murad is a wonderful Doctor. She is warm, kind, and very gentle. I had a wonderful visit and I highly recommend her.
Dr Murad is a great Dentist,me and my family very happy with her care
Love coming in seeing dr murad for my teeth cleaning! Always recommend her to family and friends and even coworkers!
Dr. Murad was amazing, office is very new and clean. The only problem I had is that they are not in network with bcbs so my regular check ups are covered but unfortunately not for my wisdom tooth extraction.
I have the worst case of Dentist Terror!!! Dr.Murad has cured me!!! She is amazing !! I had to have a root canel and I felt Nothing!!! She has the best bedside manner , she was so king & gentle.She has put my dental fears to rest! !! I HIGHLY recommend Dr Murad!! I've told all my family and friends how great she was !! Also the whole staff was awesome and the office was very clean!!!
As always, the treatment is superb, makes you understand plan of care. Dr. Murad and her staff always give that warm smile especially to my little ones and it makes them like to visit each time.
Highly professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Other staff and reception equally efficient and friendly.
Both Doc and others working in the office (i have visited both offices) were very professional and never had to wait long time to see the Doc.
Friendly knowledgeable dentist very professional. Hightech equipment/xrays. Very little pain throughout entire procedure. Highly recommend!
As always Dr. Murad is very pleasent, highly skilled and professional. I recommend her to all my friends and relatives.
Very professional office all the way around. Dr Murak is the first dentist to identify grinding as the source of many of my problems. Office staff were very helpful sorting out insurance.
Beautiful office, clean , neat and new equipment. Great prices , nice helpful staff! Great experience ! Bringing my whole family !!!
Honestly the best dentist I've ever seen! Understands the extreme sensitivity of my teeth & made me very comfortable. No Pain!!!
She's the best dentist I have ever had!
Listened to my concerns and addressed them ... Very happy
Very fast, very professional...
very good!! i was very relaxed the entire time and would make sure i was comfortable with everything.
excellent. highly recommended!!!
She seemed knowledgeable, thoughtful, no complaints. pleasant.
It was great.
Everyone was really nice, the facility was beautiful and comfortable inside. Overall, a good appointment except the cleaning technique was pretty painful because I have sensitive teeth.
Dr Murad and her whole staff were great. I felt at ease and all my concerns were addressed and answered, most importantly I've received a great service. Definitely would recommend her.
My young sons felt very comfortable with her. When making appointments they always ask me to make sure I schedule them with her. Shes very nice and personable.
Doctor Murad knowledgeable and professional explain the process and the outcome of the procedure ,I felt she have a great deal of practical bedside understanding and skill,easy accessible.
It was good. Dr Murad was very knowledgeable and factual. Dr. Murad offered numbing gel or nitrous if I needed it; I thought that was a nice touch. Only hiccup was that the lady who took my x-rays treated me a little too much like an animal with one word commands i.e. "Open...Relax!" etc. One odd thing is that I heard a lot of arguing/rumbling going on during my visit and it was a little unsettling. It almost seemed like patients were trying to argue about what another Dentist said. I would take this with a grain of salt because anyone can get upset when they don't get what they want or get their way. I just wish I didn't have to hear about it too :)
Everyone in the office was very friendly and helpful. It was absolutely painless and they even gave me a complimentary orthodontic consultation. I would highly recommend everyone in this office.
She is great. Very quick and great bedside manner.
Awesome. She is very nice.
Very informative. Had a question about widening gap between front teeth and she explain some possible solutions before referral me to othrodontis so consultation. She was very nice yet super thorough. Massage chairs are definitely a plus.
I really like Dr. Murad, she is so nice. Cleanings are not a painful experience like at other dentists I have gone to.
Just as the last time Dr. Murad and her staff are very nice and professional. They are pleasant and always helpful. They make going to the dentist a pleasurable experience. Keep up the excellent work. I recommend them to everyone I know looking for a dentist!
Wonderful, great patient interaction very caring of the patients needs and comfort.
Great doctor! Very friendly and honest. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Murad is a great dentist, very fast and quite painless. This was my first root canal, and I was worried about the pain during and after the procedure. Dr. Murad put my mind at ease and administered painless Novocaine shots! I didn't think that was possible! After all is said and done, my crown looks and feels great. She also took note of my teeth grinding and her staff quickly took impressions for a mouth guard. I had been meaning to do this for many years and am glad that it was such an easy process with them.
It was excellent, first dentist my kids have visited were staff was friendly, understanding and professional
Very professional, nice bedside manner and excellent knowledge and skills.
This was the best dental visit I've had in a very long time. The whole staff was great & so.... professional. Made me feel so at ease!
My family loves Dr. Murad!! I recommend her to everyone I know that is looking for a new dentist!
Dr. Murad is very professional, I have and will keep on recomend her to others. I feel comfortable the entire time. I am never kept waiting she does everything in a short time with amazing work.
I made an appointment at 1st Family Dental in Roselle, IL, based on a friend's recommendation. The facility was immaculate and the staff was friendly and professional. The dental massage chair, the "no-shot" gum numbing gel and the Nitrous oxide the dentist recommended to "relax" me made this visit the most positive dental experience I have ever had in my life. Dr. Sandy Murad tailored a treatment plan to meet my specific needs and I was able to get everything done in one visit. Although this was my first visit, I have no hesitation about recommending 1st Family Dental to anyone I know based on the terrific experience I had. Overall, 1st Family made what is typically a very anxious experience, an excellent experience.
Dr. Murad is great. Will recommend her to anyone who I know.
I enjoyed my visit with Sandy Murad very much. I get very nervous and uncomfortable at the dentist but Dr.Murad kept me relaxed and comfortable. I will recommend her to others.
One of the best dental experiences I have had. She was very good at explaining everything and making sure I was comfortable. Very happy I found this place. Office was very nice and love that they had TVS in the room so you could focus on something else during procedure.
She was very helpful in terms of answering all the questions I had. She was very friendly and she made the experience very relaxing. She really took her time to make sure that all my needs were met, it was a great visit!
I was very pleased with my visit with Sandy Murad. She was very direct in her conversation with me and her professional performance was very outstanding.
Very impressed from beginning to end. A very kind and helpful receptionist greeted me. I was very impressed with each professional I interacted with, from assistants to Dr. Murad. I felt Dr. Murad was attentive not only to the state of my teeth today, but on developing a plan to make sure I have a healthy smile in the future. I have had a bit of an aversion to dentists/the entire dentist experience since I was little and had a couple of bad experiences with my childhood dentist. Dr. Murad and all the staff create a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere. (Added bonus points for the massaging dental chair!)
Great! She was so nice and caring. Would definitely recommend.
Sandy explained my situation and took care of me in a quick efficient manner. She answered all my questions and her dental assistant was wonderful as well.
I have always hated the Dentist, but the whole atmosphere and people are great! I took my daughter in for her wisdom teeth, And I ended up making an appointment for me. They are very friendly and what I love are Sat. hours.
Very happy with my visit and treatment. Would go back again.
Great Dentist, she explained a lot and even checked to see if my insurance covered some things
It was my first visit to a dentist in a long time. The staff and Dr Murad made sure my concerns were addressed and I felt comfortable moving forward. The staff was very knowledgable.
So nice! Very professional, made sure I was comfortable! This is my second visit and i'm glad I found my new regular dentist! Highly recommend Dr murad!
All my life she is my Dr
Very good in every way. Made going to the dentist very tolerable.
It was an overall pleasant experience for a Dental visit.
She's very nice as well as efficient!
Had to wait a bit as a 1st time patient (understandable, to fill out forms and so forth). I also had to wait some after my X-rays, but I liked the fact that the office was busy. After that my service was quick and they were very nice. I enjoyed that each chair (room) has its own TV and you get to control what you watch. I also appreciate everyone talking English instead of in their own language to each other. I am looking forward to my next appt in Nov.
She is very professional and friendly as well..One of the best in her area..My best dental experience..Her staff is also very polite and friendly..They treat you like a special guest
Great she saw me right away and she was very caring and patient with me.
Dr. Murad is very knowledgeable and professional. She makes you feel very comfortable and everyone in the office is very friendly and willing to answer all of your questions. I recommend Dr. Murad to anyone looking for a great Dentist.
Dr.Sandy Murad was recommended by my husband, and as he recommended, I also had a very best dental experience with Dr. Murad. She is very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. She is through in her treatment and excellent in her skills.Her office staffs and clinical staffs all are wonderful, friendly and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Murad.
Dr. Murad is awesome!! I have taken my 5 year old son to her every 6 months since he's been 2. Her staff is great with him and she really makes him comfortable and unafraid. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great dentist!!
Mom is the one that saw Dr.Sandy, not me. She liked her as she is gentle,understanding, knowledgable and skillfull.
This was the best dental experience I have ever had. Everyone was wonderful, very kind, gentle and patient. They explained things every step of the way and made me feel very comfortable. I have extreme dental anxiety and they truly put that at ease. Dr. Murad is a dental angel. I would highly recommend her and her team.
Great ! I love Dr. Murad. Professional, friendly, efficient in all she does. And painless!! She has replaced old crowns for me and done a tooth extraction and procedures have been easy and I truly mean it when I say painless.
Excellent. Love the TV and HBO options. Oh, and the dental exam was great.
Dr. Murad is a true professional. A very good experience and her staff is a pleasure!
Dr. Murad has a welcoming and professional staff to greet and check you in before she meets with you. I have never felt more comfortable visiting a Dentist. Dr. Murad is upfront, attentive and appears to truly care about the services she provides. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a quality dentist.
I would marry her if she was single
Dr. Sandy Murad was recommended to me by my many co-workers. As they recommended, I found her very knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient dentist. She is very upfront with treatment plan and financial obligations. Her dental assistant and dental hygienist also were gentle, friendly and professional. I am leaving my former dentist, who I seen for last 22 years because of all these positive thingsI observed with Dr. sandy Murad and her office.
i was amazed bacause she is really pretty in person! :) she's sweet and nice! and i would recommend her to all my officemates and friends! :)
Always pleasant,informative,caring thru the whole visit
Dr Sandy Murad is a very sweet, kind & friendly person. She works very professional, and she is very knowledgeable. I feel very comfortable in her hand because she is very experience. I truly enjoy every visit. Dr Sandy Murad is an amazing dentist.
Last tie she pulled my tooth, same spot just upper this time, i had no Pain after. Right now its excruciating.......
Very professional, and genuinely concerned definitely going to return to her for future services
She is great! I got an appointed in less than 24hrs. She was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. Great experience.
I felt very comfortable, Dr. Sandy Murad was very kind and I am thrilled about how she has fixed my teeth.
She is Simply Awesome!!!! You're a fool to go to anyone else.
I loved that her office does late appts and Saturday appts. First, the front office lady was so sweet. I didn't have my insurance card so she tracked down my info without any sort of attitude about it. She looked busy with paperwork, so I know it was an inconvenience but she was happy to do so. The girl did my xrays was absolutely professional and sweet. I have terrible gag reflexes, so she was quick to take it and get and get back to me. With my previous dentists, they would also have to redo the xrays, but she knew exactly what she was doing. Dr. Sandy=LOVE! She was very kind and professional. I admitted it had probably been 2 years since my last appt, and she didnt lecture me but was very honest about the damage I had and could have done waiting that long. There were some issues with my insurance so the receptionist came and explained everything to me and explained what insurance would cover and what i would be responsible for. I thought that was nice that it was addressed up front instead of me being surprised when the bill comes. I can know include that in my budget and set aside the money. I felt bad for the lady that cleaned my teeth! She was also very kind and stopped when I needed her to. She was quick with the cleaning. Overall, this was the best dentist office and staff i have ever been too and will def. keep up my appts with them every 6 months! My past dentists havent necessarily been mean or unprofessional, i just feel that Dr. Sandy and her staff go beyond the expected professionalism and are all so sweet.
Always hated going to the dentist, not anymore.
Excellent,Dr.Sandy Murad is a very pleasant,professional,very intellengent person.Great people at 1st Family Dental Roselle Il.Did I mention,she is very attractive as well! Thank-you 1st Family Dental,and thank-you Dr.Sandy Murad.
Very friendly, has gentle hands.. didn't feel any pain! Accommodated me even though it was already near their closing time. Receptionist and assistants were very nice too.
Very professional, knowledgeable and took her time with evaluation.
The office was very modern and clean. I was seated right away. The doctor was very nice and informative. She took the time to show me my x-rays on the tv screen in front of me and went through the treatment I needed tooth by tooth. After she answered all my questions the office manager Ana explained what was covered by my insurance and gave a very fair price on what was not covered. She helped to work out a plan to use my insurance to my benefit this year and wait for next year for what was not urgent. It is refreshing to find an office where everything is explained- including the expected costs. I am very happy with Dr Murad and appreciate the service of ZOC DOC that helped me find her and book my appointment online
Dr. Murad was a great dentist. She had me in and out of the office within an hour and I had an excellent cleaning. She also re-did a cavity I had filled several years ago that had been done poorly by another dentist. She was honest about what I needed done and her dental assistant was great as well!
Sandy is absolutely fantastic. Always caring about the patient.
I thought that Dr. Murad was very friendly, good bedside manner, I don't like going to the dentist all that much, but Dr. Murad made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Murad.
Making appointment online was very easy, office nicely furnished and designed, personal friendly and helpful, and price very reasonable. Dr Murad was very professional and right to the point. Overall, very nice experience.
Dr Murad Excellent care giver and very patient with me and respects me as old lady.very confident and smart.
She did a great job explaining everything and filling my chipped tooth!
She is very friendly, she answers all your questions.
Dr. Murad is professional, courteous, gentle, and yet gets things done quickly
Dr. Murad is the very, very best. I went to see her under the the worst circumstances and she put me at ease almost instantly. I am thrilled to have found her! The Dental community is very lucky to have her. She is kind, caring and extremely efficent. While I certainly don't like going to the dentist, I will NEVER be anxious again when going to see Dr. Murad. Thanks DOC! Also ALL of the staff were terrific.
I hadn't been to see a dentist in quite awhile and was a little nervous. Sandy and the entire staff made me feel very comfortable and were friendly and professional. I'd have no problem recommending them to my friends and family! :)
I have to say it exceeded my highest hopes I had concerns being a new patient and my dental health has been paused with other health needs which has come to recent solution (neck surgery) I was needing a fractured temporary bridge repaired and a treatment plan. I was wondering what could be accomplished in one initial hour. I got a cleaning,filling ,extraction, a treatment plan with upper dentures,a consult appointment with dental implant doc , a plan with dental implants, & a return appointment in a week to remove stiches an recement temporary bridge. On the phone the front desk lady assured me all the time needed would be allowed in this session. alot of things given at end of session extraction instructions antibiotics perscription appointment card recipt of payment poposed treatment plan, toothpaste,brush,floss, and implant doctor card My 3hr & 45 minutes was testament of my excellent choice and outstanding session with knowledgeable doctor who cares what is best for the patient
The visit was great, and Dr. Murad is a great doctor!
Quite impressive. Very relaxing, could not have imagined an easier visit to a dentist. Truly makes you feel comfortable and does absolutely terrific work.
Sandy are her team are excellent and very professional. You will never see anyone else after you experience how wonderful this team is.
Truly an amazing Dentist, unbelievably satisfied with my visit.
The doctor was late unfortunately. I had to wait for more than half an hour.
its an amazing doctor, definitely took care of me and i would recommend it to anyone that truly wants a good dentist.
She is the best. I did not have to wait to see her and she made some very helpful recommendations. She even called me the day of and the day after to make sure I was not in any pain.
