"Dr. Patel is, hands down, one of the best dentists in Chicago. I haven't lived in Chicago since 2016 (I'm currently based in Boston) but I always fly back for my bi-yearly visits because I haven't been able to find anyone as amazing, nice, and honest as Dr. Patel. I've seen dentists who have lied that I needed to fill cavities that never existed or tried to convince me to get a $250 deep gum cleaning (whatever that is), but Dr. Patel has been always honest about the health of my teeth. I promise he's one of the good guys. Also, I saw a review here saying that Dr. Patel became upset when a patient said she would be seeking a second opinion... that seems like an exaggeration and frankly, a lie. I've done that twice to him in regards to a root canal procedure and a cavity fill, and he's always encouraged me to seek the opinions of other dentists."- N.L. / Yelp / Sep 13, 2018

"Very pleasant experience had a dental problem and was able to get in and be seen and treated in a timely effective manner"- M.C. / Google / Aug 01, 2018
"I chose DentalWorks because of the wonderful reviews that I read online. Dr. Patel is my dentist. He's kind and sensitive to the needs of the patient. I told him "I want my smile back...". With that, he devised a plan that I agreed to and have already gotten started on. Besides my initial visit for consultation and xrays. I've only had three visits to date. But I can truly say, I had "NO PAIN!" (Just pinch that come with deadening the gums which they treat first with a solution)Dr. Patel explains what he's doing as he works through the procedure. I couldn't tell a tooth had been extracted. I had several extractions and several fillings so far. When Dr. Patel comes in the room, he greets you and make you feel comfortable and tells you a lil about the procedure he's about to do. The cost for my plan is quite $$$... to have everything done. But in the end, its going to make me not only look better, but feel better about myself and that makes it worth it! The staff and assistants are very professional, kind and just nice people.Thank you, Dr. Patel for being kind, fun and putting me at ease during my visits. I'm happy I chose DentalWorks."- G.V. / Google / Jul 14, 2018
