    Dr. Dowlatshahi and her staff are very friendly and professional, and very knowledgeable! They let me know what I need to do to get my teeth back to full health, and I really appreciated the advice. Looking forward to seeing them again!

    Really great! The hygienist gave me tips no dental professional had given me before. She taught me how to take care of my fillings, something the dentist who gave me the fillings never taught me.

    I had a good visit with Dr. Dowlatshahi; she was very honest with her recommendations but at the same time respectful of my wishes. I would certainly recommend her.

    Much gentler than my other experiences with dentists. Explained how to fix certain problems without being overbearing. Plus my teeth feel great. All in all, would definitely go back.

    Dr. Alaleh and her staff were stellar. I haven't gone to the dentist in years (part laziness, part anxiety) and I'm glad I chose to see Dr. Alaleh. They were extremely friendly, informative and helpful explaining the procedure and options to me. I'd recommend Dr. Alaheh to anyone in the city who hasn't seen the dentist in a while and wants a smooth, welcoming experience.

    Didn’t have a wait other than a little paperwork. Everyone was very nice and informative. My dentist even walked me through my x-rays to explain what she was seeing. Have already recommended her to others.

    The office was in a surprising location, just two blocks from Wrigley Field, but felt like an office you'd see downtown once you walk in. They were warm and welcoming. My overall experience was easy and smooth, which was great because it had been so long since I went to the dentist.

    I was a bit overdue for a dental appointment and overwhelmed with being in a new city. Dr. Aleleh and her hygienist were so kind and gentle with me, and my teeth feel so good now!! I also appreciate the time Dr.Aleleh took to explain exactly what she was doing and why, along with pictures of my mouth so I really understood. I cannot recommend them enough.

    I hadn't been to the dentist in probably 10 years because it terrifies me. Dr. Dowlatshahi and her staff were very patient and nonjudgemental and I'm happy to have somewhere to go now.

    The doctor and staff was very friends. I learned new things about oral cage that nobody ever explained it to me before the doctor here. They do have their own parking, in Wrigleyville that's very important.

    I had a good appointment. Dr. Alaleh Dowlatshahi is very knowledgeable and put me at ease. She did a routine check-up, took some x-rays, and did a thorough cleaning. We set up another follow up appointment that day.

  • Efficient, honest, communicative, and convenient dentist office
    Reviewed on February 20th, 2018  •  Verified patient
    What I appreciated the most about my experience at Dr. Alaleh's office was how communicative, straight-forward, and honest they were. I'm used to being up-sold everything at the dentist -- that if I didn't do what they were suggesting, my teeth would fall out. Dr. Alaleh cleaned my teeth herself, and then made recommendations regarding my future care based on the X-rays and scaling she did. She also told me it was just a recommendation, and that I could go another 6 months without it, but that insurance would absolutely cover it. That kind of honesty and transparency goes a long way in my book!

    Reviewed on December 15th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    The staff was very friendly and informative. They were good at explaining what they were doing and were helpful with getting information fro my insurance. She was a little touch on my gums but probably my fault for not flossing in forever! They were also super efficient, I was able to get my cleaning, a filling, and retainers made in an hour and a half!
