Was a great visit. Everyone was really fun and really nice and didn't try to upsell me on things I didn't need just to see what was the max they could get from my insurance and from myself. Highly recommended.

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 (inaddition to the walls) to keep you entertained during your appointment!

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 shewas 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.

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 Janis 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.

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 recommendedbe 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!

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 hygenistMaggie 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!

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 wasprofessional 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!

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 afantastic 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.
