Dr. Hirsch at Elmhurst Dental. The whole family sees him. No need for a sepearte pediatric dentist. He is great and not al alarmist like other dentists we have tried. Totally trustworthy.

Dr. William Bacon, 183 N. Addison Ave. He explains things clearly and patiently. His dental assistants are gentle with cleanings.

Don't forget the pediatric dentists! Dr. Michael Ewers at DentistryForKids.com is an amazing dentist. He and his staff are organized, efficient and really fun too.

Dr. DeWitt of DeWitt Dentistry is my ONLY choice for a dentist. For the last nine years my family and friends have experienced only the best in quality care for our teeth. Dr. DeWitt is hands-down a very educated man in his field. If you want peace of mind that your teeth are receiving preventive care, the expert hygenists and Dr. DeWitt are your ticket to good oral health.

Dr. Malecki - he caters to cowards - gentle care and concern for a healthy mouth!

Dr. Pahopos at Elmhurst Family Dental (N. York by the 290 bridge). Incredibly friendly and an honest family man. I was one of his first patients and for 18 years now have been fully satisfied with his attention and personal approach to me and my whole family.

I have to agree with Cynthia. Dr. Dewitt is the most gentle and caring man. He takes such wonderful care of my niece and nephew. They have the prettiest smiles around. Keep up the great work.

Vickie DR.DANIEL DESALVO at York Rd and the Prairie Path. My whole family has gone to him for years. Excellent with children. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Daniel DeSalvo! Better known as DOCTOR D! He is such a gentle man and makes you feel so comfortable, like you have known him for years. And one day I will know him for YEARS because I will continue to see him and recommend him to all who need a kind hearthearted, down to earth, very thorough, old school, experienced dentist!!!

Dr. William DeWitt!!! For over 20 years Dr DeWitt has treated my family with gentle, professional, cutting edge dentistry. No one, including my youngest grandchild, is afraid to see the dentist. When my husband was going through head and neck radiation treatments Dr DeWitt took great care of him, making sure that his oral health was not affected. Great friendly staff and a beautiful facility round out the experience.

Dr. Bill DeWitt and his hygenist, Coral, have done a great job with me.

I've been a patient of Dr. Bill DeWitt for over 20 years. My entire family goes to Dr. DeWitt, including my mother and she drives 90 miles to see him. I had to have all my wisdom teeth pulled, something I was very afraid to do, but it went off without a hitch! Thanks Doc!

I live in CA (yes, California!) and I flew to see Dr DeWitt monthly for almost a year as he helped to solve an especially tricky and sensitive issue with my teeth. My friends thoughts I was crazy flying to IL. After my consultation and first appt I had no doubt it was the right match. After meeting dentists in eight different cities and having a great experience, I am confidently casting my vote for William E Dewitt., DDS. Thanks, Dr D.

Dr. Dewitt has been my dentist for as far back as I can remember. He has always been extraordinarily kind and skilled, leaving me comfortable in his care and in admiration of his personality. He can be described as nothing less than the best dentist I have ever had.
Bonnie Schultz July 02, 2012 at 07:45 PM
My daughter and I travel from Hyde Park to see Dr. DeWitt. In our view, he is the ONLY dentist. We adore him. Always patient with the patients! He is totally professional, yet manages to convey warmth...that human touch that is so helpful. The latest in technology, too!
Marlene Hardt July 02, 2012 at 08:08 PM
Dr. Dewitt is not only an extraordinarily skilled dentist, his level of care and concern for his patients is the highest. I am needle phobic, and Dr. Dewitt assured me that I would not feel any pain, and he lived up to his word. Additionally, he went that extra step to divert my attention from the syringe in his hand. Thanks Dr. Dewitt - you ARE the best. M.

Dr. Los on North York...my entire family uses his services, and have for quite some time. His office is friendly and non-threatening. I have had nearly every possible dental proceedure done over the years and he is, by far, the best I have seen (and I've seen a lot!). I

Dr Newman, Spring Rd.

I never enjoyed going to any dentist until Dr. BILL DEWITT. He gets my vote and a big thumbs up.
Anthony Stagno July 09, 2012 at 09:47 PM
I've gotten great comments on my teeth ever since Dr. DeWitt gave me my new smile. I absolutely recommend him.

Scott W. Hawkins Dr. DeWitt is not only a great dentist, but he is also a very kind person. He knows how nervous I get, and always is very, very understanding. He is the best!
