About

Dr. Joy V. Poskozim is proud to serve Lincolnwood and the NW side of Chicago through integrative family dentistry. At Joyful Dental Care, we understand that dentistry is more than just fixing teeth; it is building relationships and creating an environment where everyone can feel comfortable receiving dental care. We have incorporated oral appliances for mild and moderate sleep apnea, dental laser therapy, quality dental care and patient compliance; creating a positive dental experience for the entire family. We also can come to you in the case of being house-bound! Many dental procedures can be performed at home. These include: 1) Dental cleanings. We brush our patients’ teeth with a toothbrush and toothpaste at the end! 2) Exams. These include oral cancer screenings with a portable screening device known as Velscope. http://www.velscope.com/ a) exams for seniors especially focus on dry mouth, since dry mouth causes so many problems from bad breath to an increase in cavities. 2) X-rays. This is done with a portable dental x-ray device known as a NOMAD. X-rays are taken at the home, then developed back at the office. 3) Simple extractions. Patients on blood thinners and/or high blood pressure medications would need a written permission note from their physician, but as long as a care-giver is with them at time of the appointment to take care of them when done, instruments can be brought to them! 4) Mouthguards. A lot of dementia medications cause patients to unnecessarily grind/clench their teeth. Impressions can be taken anywhere. 5) Complete and partial dentures. Impressions, try-ins, and adjustments can be done at home. 6) Denture and partial denture repairs. These can also be done at home. Sometimes the denture has to be repaired at a lab, but the denture is taken and brought back to the patient at home. 7) Implant-retained overdentures. The implants have to be done at a dental office, but their current denture can be retro-fitted to their new implant(s) at home.

    The team was very friendly and responsive. They answered questions I had and when I was curious about why a procedure was being done in a certain way they were very supportive and helpful. If you have anxiety around dental procedures I’d recommend coming here!

    I can't recommend this office and Dentist Dr Joy Poskozim enough! She was just fantastic! Calming, caring, compassionate, and funny. The entire staff is just as wonderful! I'm a skittish dentist person, and they really helped me get through getting my tooth pulled. An unexpected tooth fracture left me very scared, and they really helped me be at ease. The office is brand new with state of the art equipment and instruments. I had a long list of dentists to choose from, and my gut kept telling me to pick her. At first her name was what got me. Joy! And that's exactly how my experience was. Joyful!

    Dr. Joy has a most engaging "chairside" manner. She explains everything she is doing, is accommodating of all your questions, and provides a delightful history of the evolution of human teeth. It was my first visit but I felt like I had just spent an hour with a good friend.

    I've always had TERRIBLE dental anxiety. But Dr. Joy had me laughing by the end of my appointment. She's really dedicated, and doesn't try to sell you anything unnecessary. Lucy (Dr. Joy's assistant) and Diana (receptionist) are really sweet too and will do everything they can to help you. I was uninsured, and I joined their Kleer program to help save some money and it's been a great option for people who don't have insurance or want supplemental insurance.

Answered all of my questions and explained my treatment plan thoroughly. I have a long journey to getting back my smile but I can’t think of a better place to get my treatments.

    Dr. Joy is so kind, very thorough, and understands the financial aspect. She takes the time to spell out what insurance covers so there are no surprises, and even offers to split up appointments to help with payment which was huge for me! Everyone in the office was very friendly and provided amazing service. Overall, very glad I found this office and Dr. Joy!

    The best part of my experience was Dr. Poskozim; she was knowledgeable, personable, and caught some damage to my teeth that my previous dentists had not noticed. Even though the office was busy, she took the time to explain everything to me. I could tell that she was training a few new staff members, so some things were a bit disorganized, but the most important aspects of my visit (the actual dental care) were excellent. I will return again.

    Doctor was very nice and friendly. I went in for a standard cleaning as a new patient. Everything was fine . She did a great job cleaning and I was like wow she took her time. Then as I was leaving they were busy so I left. I just received my statement in the mail and found out I have some out of pocket costs. It would have been nice if they had mentioned it before starting any service.

She didn’t make me feel bad for not visiting a dentist in years, and made me feel welcome and invited; that she was genuinely interested in my care and minimizing my out of pocket expense.

    This is hands down the best dental experience I've ever had (which is saying a lot because I needed 7 cavities filled). The staff was extremely accommodating scheduling appointments, and Dr. Joy made me feel at ease throughout the visit. I definitely feel in safe hands with Dr. Joy and her staff. I'm very appreciative for the extra time she took making sure I was educated about how to care for my teeth after leaving the office. She even sent me emails afterwards with links to the information we had talked about at our visit. I don't think you'll find a more genuinely pleasant dental experience than here.

    Dr. Poskozim was fantastic. Going to the dentist is maybe my least favorite thing to do, but honestly she made me feel comfortable and got me in and out very quickly. She explained things to me so I could easily understand and recommended products based on how well they work (she doesn’t sell them in office, so isn’t trying to market anything for personal gain). The receptionist was friendly, I was able to complete the needed forms online before my appointment, and overall it was a great experience.

    Dr Joy is a dental education evangelist! No other dentist has ever got through to me about my need to take care of my teeth anywhere near as well as she has. She is very patient, non-judgmental and obviously loves her job, especially the education part. She did the teeth cleaning herself and she spent a lot of time with me and was very patient. Her assistant is brilliant at getting x-rays quickly in efficiently. She took the required x-rays in a very short space of time with little to no discomfort on my part. She also told me the right and cheapest toothbrush to buy and sent me links to my email address. It’s not a fancy office but it’s clean and who cares when you are working with a genius like Dr Joy?

    Dr. Joy is gentle, patient, and understanding. She takes the time to get to know you and your routine. The best is that she is a total dental nerd- she gets so excited to show you the cool tools she uses and why they're cool. Her excitement and enthusiasm is so infectious. I'm suprisingly excited to see her again- despite it being to get a cavity filled.

It had been a while since I had seen the dentist (mostly because of my anxiety), but as she was working on my teeth I never once felt any condescension. I will definitely be going back to see Dr. Joy for my follow up care and cleanings from now on!
