Dental Patient Testimonials
"From Scheduling, to providing the service and providing the final billing, everything was punctual, hassle free and easy. Grove Dental, thank you for making 'going to the dentist' painless."
"I've been going to them for decades. The schedule is almost always right on time. They are knowledgeable and experienced. The staff is very friendly. They are considerate and gentle. They explain anything they find in detail and if there are options, they give me those."
"The staff at Grove Dental are friendly and professional."
"I scheduled an appointment for a teeth cleaning and general checkup. Grove Dental was able to provide a convenient time for me to get in. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I arrived at my scheduled appointment time and did have to wait a little, but that is understandable since there may have been an emergency visit by someone. The dental hygienist came out and apologized immediately for the delay. She started the cleaning and was communicative throughout the procedure. She explained exactly what she was doing, which was good because I have a fear of dental work."
"It is a very pleasant atmosphere. Everyone is very professional and cares a lot about making you feel comfortable. They always explain things very thoroughly. If you are having any kind of complicated procedure done, they will take the time to sit down and explain everything to you. You don't leave with any questions unanswered. It is a very patient centered place. They are very good about emergency visits. I have had an emergency on a holiday that they were quick to answer the phone and schedule an appointment as soon as possible."
"Dear Dr. Shubat: Thank you for taking care of my broken tooth when I was in your office as it was very uneven and the ragged edge was making the side of my mouth painful. I was pleased to have this done, especially when I had thought the tooth might have had to be pulled. I appreciate your help in this matter and want to thank you for relieving my anxiety in this matter."
"Dear Grove Dental: Today, I had an appointment with a dentist (Dr. Crowe) at Wheaton--last minute; I was in pain and scared and felt terrible and embarrassed for having to come to a different dentist than the one I'd just come to. I can't tell you all how much I appreciated the courtesy and kindness--the interest and support--offered by the entire office. Dr. Crowe's assistant was SO wonderful, chatting about family and holidays and symptoms and children and everything during the x-rays, and expressing interest and sympathy. The doctor explained everything so helpfully, so that I wasn't so embarrassed; I felt understood and believed. Even the wonderful woman I saw about billing and a consultation with the oral surgeon was so clear, gentle, and helpful that it was a pleasure to go over the details. I can't thank you enough for the wonderful work you put into your patients and care. Even such a big baby as me felt trusted and cared for. Thanks so much."
"We receive our primary dental care here from Dr. Kevin Moss. Our whole family goes here. They are very nice and professional. We have had no problems with this company. He always remembers my kids and makes their experience personal."
"Dr. Shubat: Today I ate crisp bacon and, later, popcorn on my left side with absolutely no pain. It took a week of being very careful after you did your magic, but by Thursday I felt I could bite gingerly, and toda I decided to really test it. Thank you for taking care of me. Merry Christmas!"
"My daughter met with Dr. Woodward for a cleaning. He and his staff put her at ease and helped her feel very comfortable. She had a good experience with them. I highly recommend Grove Dental!"
"Dr. Stone is my children's dentist, and my children like him. It's a very good and frienly practice, and the children don't have a problem going there. They get little goody bags when they go in, and then get to take something from the treasure box. they don't ever fight about going to the dentist."
"I brought my four year old some here for his first dental appointment. the appointment went great. We loved this dentist. they have a very kid-friendly office with toys and books in the waiting room. The staff is very friendly, and they have a clean modern facility. They spend a lot of time describing what they are going to do and answering questions before they start the cleaning. They take the child by themselves to do the cleaining, and the child can watch TV and play Nintendo DS and be entertained throughout the appointment. They also have Katie Kangaroo, who they use to help children learn how to brush properly. Dr. Bob meets with parents at the end of the appointment to educate parents about dental health. This education was very good and informative. I wouldn't take my kids anywhere else for their dental care."
"Dr. Chung is my son's dentist. We took my son for sealants on his adult molars. My son has been going to her since he was 4 years old. She has don my son's cleanings, fillings, etc. Although he is not thrilled about going to the dentist, he enjoys going; he doesn't get apprehensive. I think she has been very good. They answer any questions you may have. I have been very happy with them."
"I have been coming here for over 15 years for our family dental and orthodontic needs. They are very kid friendly and put the kids at ease. They are very knowledgeable and friendly and they are willing to work with the kids with allergies and other needs."
"My son needed his wisdom teeth removed because they were causing him pain - the oral surgeon explained everything and did an excellent job. Everything went well from the initial appointment to the surgery. They were able to schedule him very quickly for surgery within a couple of days which was a good thing since he was in pain. No complications."
"I would like to thank the women at the reception desk. I came to Grove Dental about noon. I had just discovered that a piece of my tooth was lodged in my upper lip and I needed an oral surgeon to remove it. The women went out of their way to be helpful. It ended up with their calling Dr. Smith at the Bolingbrook location. I was told that if I went there, Dr. Smith could see me that afternoon. They gave me a map and directions and sent me on my way. Dr. Smith was able to find and remove the piece of tooth. I thank him for seeing me so promptly. Everyone was so helpful and I really appreciate the time and effort they took on my behalf."
"I had a wisdom tooth extracted yesterday. I'm writing to express my appreciation for my hygienist at the Lombard office. She really did a great job of putting me at ease prior to the surgery. She also did a nice job explaining post-operative care tips. Please pass on my thanks and/or let her superiors know what a great job she's doing."
"I mentioned in a prior review that I have a fear of dental work, especially root canal (which I was scheduled for). The dental assistant listened to my concerns and calmed me down. Dr. Kunath was the Endodontist and was very caring. They both continually explained what they were doing and why. The procedure went very quickly - no pain. I can't say enough about the quality of care that all involved at Grove Dental provided."
"Yesterday I had a root canal with Dr. Wiersema. I am usually very timid about having dental work done and will put it off to avoid pain. I've had many BAD experiences with going to the dentist so I was absolutely surprised to discover that I could have work done without pain. I am so glad I switched dental groups. For 25 years I suffered with a dentist who was not able to effectively control pain during dental procedures. Thank you Dr. Wiersema!"
"I wanted to contact Dr. Davenport to let him know what a great job he did on my root canal yesterday. I have no pain today, and have not had one Advil!!! Your staff and you made my visit there enjoyable. I would highly recommend you to anyone. Thanks for your help again and keep up the good work!!!"
"My last appointment was for a regular checkup and cleaning. Dr. Michael Cunningham made sure my gums were looking good. There were no problem areas so I will see him again in 6 months. Great news. Dr. Cunningham, at Grove Dental in Downers Grove, has been my periodontist for several years. He has gotten my mouth & gums back to a healthy condition. I have regular checkups and cleanings to help maintain my oral health. Dr. Cunningham is a very kind man and has a gentle approach when working on your gums. He is an A+ periodontist. I highly recommend him.
"I have been going to Grove Dental for almost 20 years. My children have gone there since they were old enough to see the dentist. My children (four of whom have always been very shy) quicly became comforatble enough to - willingly & happily - go into the office on their own! Their original dentist retired and was replaced by Dr. Cabana who stepped right in and was just as great. I have had several dental procedures done by both Dr. Smith (sinus lift, bone graft, & several dental implants) & Dr. Shubat (root canals, reconstructive work & crowns). I am always getting compliments on my teeth because of the work I have had there. Dr. Shubat's assistants are wonderful at making temp crowns right there in the office that look just as good as my permanent crowns. Everyone is friendly, even their billing office is great. Very flexible with payments and they work with you so that you can afford to have work done."
"I use Grove Dental for my dentistry. The last visit there was a month ago. I like them and I think a lot of dental insurance is covered by them. There is almost no wait time at all in the waiting room. They have children's and adult dentistry and they also have orthodontic care. The dental hygienist and receptionist are all very nice and it was an all-round pleasant experience."
