    I went in for a routine checkup- cleaning and scaling. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The doctor x-rayed my teeth and provided a detailed overview about whatever she’ll be doing. Everything was confirmed about my insurance before proceeding, so that there were no surprises in the future. The whole procedure didn’t take very long and I liked the way the attending doctor was going over and explaining everything.

    From the front desk clerk, to the hygienist, to the doctor, everyone was great. They answered all of my questions without me even asking them. Even being my first time going that particular dentist, they made me feel as if I've been going there for a lifetime.

    Best experience I’ve had at a dental office. The staff was friendly, professional, patient, and informative. Glad I tried this office and planning to make this the primary dental office for our family.

    This was my first time at Wicker Park Dental Studio. The staff made me feel very welcome. I especially appreciated the time Jenna (who I believe is a hygienist) took to listen to my concerns & help me better understand what is or could be happening in my mouth. Dr. Simpson was also friendly and helpful in laying out next steps for my treatment. I was pretty nervous about this appointment, but the staff helped me feel comfortable & begin to get the treatment that will help improve & maintain my oral health.

    Darren was thorough, personable, clearly has many years and is an expert in the field. I hadn’t been to a dentist in 5 years and he made the process anxiety free and fun. I’d HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a great dentist. Thanks for connecting me with him Opencare!

    Great dental experience. Dr. Simpson and his staff were friendly and welcoming and did everything they could to make me comfortable. Also, they are not judgmental. I finally found a dentist with whom I can be comfortable. I no longer dread going for my regular cleaning. I highly recommend Dr. Simpson.

    Dr. Simpson and his team was wonderful. They are not judgmental at all regarding your dental history. They tell you how things are in simple language you can understand and walk you through all your options for care and give you lots of tips and helpful information on how to improve your dental hygiene.
