Wonderful dental assistant, technicians. Wonderful, friendly and did not push anything unnecessary.
Knows whats hes doing and was insightful
Everyone I came in contact to and spoke to was so lovely, helping, and sweet.
Everyone here is incredibly kind and patient, especially for someone like me who is sensitive with the dentist as it is.
Everyone there was very professional, courteous and attentive. About as good as a trip to the dentist can be. Definitely sticking with Lakeview Dental from now on.
Wow! What a pleasant first experience! Dr Scott takes the time to explain his treatments and plan of action without pressure or over selling additional services. Wonderful staff and barely a wait!
Everyone in the office is extremely nice and welcoming! So happy I found this dentist.
Great office and staff. Dr. Overholser was professional and kind. I highly recommend.
Great office, great staff, painless appointment. TVs on the ceiling! I mean it. For people who fear dental appointments. Dr Overholser is as good as any dentist I've seen. And with my history of dental issues, that's saying something. A+
A very welcoming environment and professional staff.
This was honestly the most pleasant dental office I've ever been to. Dr. Overholser is very kind, has great bedside manner, and a beautiful office. Everyone is very professional, and nice. Everything was explained in a clear manner throughout the appointment, and I will definitely be returning for my future dental work.
I love Dr. Scott Overholser! I have referred multiple friends to his office. Customer service is great, they never seem to be running behind and my actual teeth cleanings are always extremely fast. Plus, they have TVs on the ceilings (in addition to the walls) to keep you entertained during your appointment!
My visit was wonderful! All of the staff were very friendly and patient and I felt like I received a very thorough exam. I am excited to make this place my new "home" dentist!
Very friendly and great care! Staff was very nice and helpful.
Dr. Scott Overholser is a fantastic dentist. He has a great neighborhood office and his staff is wonderful. Everything was fast and quick and painless. Would recommend him to anyone.
Friendly staff, great facilities, and Dr. Overholser couldn't have been better to work with. After embarrassingly putting off the dentist for a couple years after moving here, I'm happy to have a great dentist in Chicago to come back to.
All of the staff were very friendly and attentive. The hygienist who did my cleaning, Maggie, was awesome. She was very attentive and concerned about my comfort. She also did a great job of explaining what she saw and what she was doing. Dr. Scott is very friendly and gentle. I love that he doesn't ask you 100 questions when you can't answer because they've got their fingers and tools in your mouth. The office is also very nice. There's a TV (on the wall and the ceiling) to watch to keep your mind off what they're doing.
awesome facility and dentists! I always enjoy going here!
I was nervous at first because I had never been to this dentist, but the staff put me at ease immediately. Dr. Overholser was very friendly and professional. Very glad that I made the appointment
Everyone is so friendly and personable! I moved out of Chicago, but I am going to miss going to the dentist there. I continue to recommend friends to Dr. Overholser and think he is the best dentist that I have ever been to!
Dr. Scott is highly efficient and personable! Great office
Dr. Scott is fantastic! His staff is really great, the atmosphere is nearly spa-like, and it was a very nice experience.
Dr. Overholser and his staff are my favorite of all time. It had been a very long time since I had gone to the dentist and I was very nervous, but everyone was very kind, comforting, and professional. The receptionist Jan is very friendly and helpful. Besides having dental work done which is no fun, going into the office was always a treat. I cannot say enough good things about the skillful dentistry and the customer service that I experienced at Dr. Overholser's office.
Professional and educational. Honest about my needs and didn't give me any hassle about the condition of my teeth.
Dr. Overholser and his team were very sensitive when it came to my dental anxiety, and walked me through the whole appointment. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this dentist office
This was my first time with Lakeview Dental Arts and Scott Overholser, and it was a great experience. All of the staff was extremely helpful, kind and accommodating. They also took time to sit me down and discuss what they recommended be done as well as how much it would cost and how much my insurance would cover. Am happy with them so far and exciting to find a reliable dentist!
Love going to this doctor's office. Everyone is always super nice and very quick, but thorough, with cleanings. Plus--love the tv's above the chairs so I can stay distracted during the cleaning.
I did my research before choosing to go to Dr. Scott, and was encouraged by the many raving reviews I was seeing. Dr. Scott did not disappoint. This is the most comfortable I've ever felt at the dentist. The dental hygenist Maggie was incredibly gentle yet thorough, and took the time to understand my needs. Dr. Scott has a such a warm, genuine and calming bedside manner that made me feel very comfortable. As for the office itself, it is state of the art. Brand new equipment, bright and clean, glasses for the patient to protect your eyes from the bright light above, and even has tv's on the ceiling to distract you. I'm so happy to have finally found a great dentist that makes me feel at ease and not dread my next appointment!
Staff was Courteous and professional. Office was clean and well done. Dentist was very thorough with good bedside manner.
Polite, professional and realistic. Educated me on my dental health, made sure I understood my options and was completely nonjudgmental. I've sent several friends and family his way already and they've had nothing but great experiences also!
I'm terrified by the dentist, but this was a good experience.
The appointments are always on time and the staff is always friendly. I highly recommend this Dr. Overholser.
Great service and efficient.
After years of challenging dental visits I have to say, this was the BEST dental experience I have ever had. Ever staff member was friendly and kind. The environment was calming and beautiful-- very clean and high tech. Dr. Overholser was professional but also warm and friendly. He clearly explained what needed to be done and did so with a pleasant and encouraging way (not like many dentists). After my exam, the staff explained what was next and easily explained how my insurance would work, providing me with a sheet detailing everything I needed to know. I felt very much at ease during my visit and confident in future exams with his staff. I'm actually looking forward to my next appointment and I would highly recommend Lakeview Dental Arts to ANYONE looking in the area!
I always have a very pleasant experience--friendly staff, little to no wait time, and everyone seems very knowledgeable. Big plus that there's always something on a tv in the background in case I need to be distracted during a tough procedure. Very highly recommended.
Dr. Scott is not only very knowledgable, he is also a just a super nice and honest guy! I trust his judgment completely and have taken my young son to him as well.
The staff always greets me by name when I arrive in the office and I am sitting in the chair within 5 minutes. Very organized! The dental hygienists always do an excellent job cleaning and Dr. Overholser is so friendly. I am proud to call this MY dental office!
The staff was extremely friendly and informative. Definitely felt like I was being taken care of!
Amazing office! All the staff are friendly and professional.
Dr. Overholser and the staff were great! Very comfortable environment and excellent service.
Very comforting atmosphere and beautiful facility. Personal attention and tailored recommendations - took the time to have a conversation.
Very professional and personable.
Gets you in and out quickly. Explains everything very well. Doesn't try to "upsell" you on unnecessary dental work. I highly recommend, especially if you haven't been to a dentist in a long time, he's very respectful in that sense.
Both of the people who saw me were fantastic. They came up with sensible solutions to my problems and did not berate me for the time in between visits. They were able to take care of everything quickly. They have a fantastic bedside manor. They checked with me before doing anything that my insurance would not cover. I definitely found the Dentist that I am going to be sticking with for a long time. Great experience.
Dr. Overholser and East Lakeview Dental Arts staff was absolutely great. The office was very nice and there was easy parking in garage right next the the office, which was also kindly validated for me. I hardly had to wait for my appointment. Dr. Overholser was very thorough with his examination carefully looking at X-Rays and taking pictures which we would then show and explain to me. The dental hygienist also was great at giving me tips for flossing and where I should brush especially because of my ruptured wisdom teeth. The staff was also great at working with my insurance and letting me know what my out-of-pocket costs would be. Going to the dentist is never fun but I was very pleased with my experience.
Everything was great! His receptionist was very friendly and quick. I was back to the room within 5 minutes. The dental hygentist was awesome! Gentle but very thorough. Dr Overholser was also very nice. I liked he did not try and push anything on me, but was very informative on anything I asked. Definitely going back in 6 months for my cleaning.
I had excellent experience on my first visit. Dr. Scott and his staff were some of the nicest I've seen in a doctor's office. Everything was explained thoroughly and clearly. Highly recommended.
Dr. Overholser is wonderful! Very professional and responsible. Dr. Overholser restored one of my teeth. What he did was a great job to me. I felt so lucky to go back to choose him after an one-week thought.
Very friendly and understanding, yet professional. No longer an anti-dentite!
Dr. Overholser was wonderful. He has an easy, comfortable manner- no pretense whatsoever- and still manages to be very thorough and knowledgable. Maggie (dental hygienist) is a phenom and Melinda (receptionist) was so welcoming.
Very quick-very clean office. Dental Hygienist Maggie was awesome! Very friendly staff.
The office staff, dental assistant, and Dr. Overholser were all fantastic at my first visit today. I felt very welcome in the office and will be returning in 6 months! Best dentist office in Lakeview!
I had a wonderful visit. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. Thank you!
I could not be happier with Dr. Overholser and his staff. All around they were friendly and courteous and I don't see how anyone could not be satisfied with their experience at Lakeview Dental Arts.
Very professional and friendly. I hadn't been to the dentist in some time and he made me feel like I had nothing to regret.
I hate the dentist, but Dr. Overholser was fantastic. I am so happy I found a great dentist.
Dr. Scott is absolutely the best dentist I've ever had. Melinda, his front desk professional, is very friendly and welcoming and highly competent. The dental hygienist was gentle yet thorough. Overall, an excellent experience and I would highly recommend this dental practice.
Great visit. Dentist and staff all very welcoming and knowledgeable. Felt very comfortable and left feeling satisfied.
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Overholser. It was my first time at the dentist in awhile and he and his team were awesome at putting me at ease and answering all my questions. Dr. Overholser performed the cleaning himself, which was awesome because I've definitely been places where that doesn't happen and, I swear, I kept running my tongue along my teeth afterwards because they felt so clean. The office was also pristine and I loved the tv on the ceiling so I could watch some HGTV during the cleaning.
Glad I found a modern welcoming dentist in Chicago.
The staff and Dentist were both helpful and very good about explaining everything.
The staff was incredibly friendly, answered all of my questions and made me feel right at home. I happen to love visiting the dentist but I highly recommend Dr. Overholser to anyone who is a little wary about dental visits.
Nothing but great things to say! Had an awesome experience. I got in right on time and out in 30 minutes. They were super nice and the place was clean.. had a nice small-town feel, which is hard to find in the city. Loved it!
He was very professional, made me comfortable. His assistant was awesome! Very friendly
Great people, very professional. The TVs are nice to have too.
Dr. Overholser and the dental hygienist were both awesome. Very friendly, funny, thorough. I don't think I have ever enjoyed a dentist appointment so much! The office is clean and in a great location. I was seen straight away and all of my questions were answered and the Dr. was very thorough explaining any further appointments or work that needed to be done. I am genuinely looking forward to my next appointment.
Dr. Overholser and his staff were incredibly friendly and professional; they helped make me feel completely comfortable, even though I had not been to a dentist in a long time! I will certainly be returning to work with them again!
The best dental visit I have ever had. The staff and Dr. Overholser were top notch! I will recommend his to all my friends.
I hadn't been to the dentist for awhile and was nervous about going. However, I had a good experience here. Everyone was very nice and professional. X-rays and cleaning were quick and painless. They took the time to explain things to me about my cavities, insurance, etc., which I really appreciated. I will definitely be going back.
Great experience, great professional people
Dr. Overholser was great--asked lots of questions and seemed to really care about me. Will be bringing the whole family here!
Brand new facilities and great location.
Dr. Overholser is GREAT. I am usually so nervous whenever I go to the dentist but he really made me feel so comfortable. My cleaning was quick and painless. They also offer payment plans, which is great for students and teachers such as myself! Best dental experience ever.
