Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Dr. Golden is my orthodontist of nearly 3 years and I have never had a problem with the quality of treatment or the time frame in which it was accomplished.  Waits were always reasonable and I never felt confused on what to do with other appliances such as rubber bands or my retainer.  The atmosphere is good and they always make sure you are comfortable, and honestly I can’t think of many negatives.  If anyone needs an orthodontist, this is the place to go.

My family has been going to Dr. Golden for many years and have always been happy with our results. He’s the best Orthodontist out there and I am very thankful for the work he has done. Dr. Golden honestly loves what he does. I was really nervous about getting braces since I had so many problems with my teeth, but he always knew what he was doing and he saved us a lot of money by doing the best he could do to avoid more expensive options. After my braces were taken off I needed some bonding for a few teeth and went to the dentist for that where they told me it was going to be more complicated and very expensive, and after seeing another dentist and a prosthodontist, I came back to Dr. Golden and he quickly did the job and for much cheaper. I totally recommend Dr. Golden. He’s a very friendly guy, very intelligent, and you won’t be disappointed.

I will start by saying that having a beautiful smile is such a confidence booster. My son cannot stop smiling now that his braces are off. Dr Golden exceeded my expectations in every way. From day 1 I knew what was going to happen, the expectations and the commitment it would take. Also the front office is so easy to work with and professional. I had researched various orthodontic offices in the western suburbs and this one wasn’t the closest but Dr Golden and his team live up to their reputation. I would without a doubt recommend Dr Golden to anyone needing orthodontic help.

I think the most telling thing about Dr. Golden is that the every time a new dentist checks my teeth, the first thing they say is how amazing my teeth look. Even with an untrained eye, I can still see the huge difference myself. I’ve had I had some friends and family try out other people for orthodontics, but none were too pleased with who they had. Not with Dr. Golden. I can’t recommend him enough.

Can’t say enough about how amazing Dr. Golden is! I had braces for 2 years and never had issues (never had a bracket fall off). Everyone at the office is so nice and really cared about my comfort. My brother and sisters also go to Dr. Golden for their braces too and we all have glowing reviews of the experience with Dr. Golden and the staff! I would highly recommend going with them for anything!

Dr Golden worked miracles on my 3 children. They all have perfect teeth now! My kids never complained about going there, he never kept us waiting like other doctors and the staff is always so efficient and pleasant. My fourth will be getting braces soon and we wouldn’t consider going anywhere else!

We brought our son Gabriel to Dr. Golden for braces. He was very apprehensive, and had heard “horror” stories from other kids who had gone thru a set of braces. Opposite of those stories, we found Dr. Golden to be terrific! He has a very calming demeanor, and quickly put Gabriel at ease. The procedures were pain free, no stress, no trouble. Everything went very smoothly and he’s now in the process of having them removed. We are very thankful to Dr. Golden for making the entire process so “patient friendly”; and the results have been quite appealing. Thank you!

Great Orthodontist. I am in my late 40s and Dr. Golden was recommended to me by my dentist and neighbor. He takes time to explain and is a perfectionist! And… has a great “bedside manor”. I wish I had him as a doctor back when I was 12 years old! I have already recommended him to others. Nice staff too. Highly recommended.

Lisa S. from Wheaton, IL (Source: Yelp)


Dr Golden has treated both my boys.  He is the kindest, most gentle orthodontist I could ever imagine.  He is excellent, clinically, and gets teeth straightened quickly.  He truly cares about his patients and treats them with such respect.  I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone, especially sensitive people, who need orthodontic work.  He is outstanding.

Dr. Golden and his team are excellent at what they do. But beyond their professional knowledge and skills, which are excellent, they are all the kindest and most patient and understanding people. They have gone above and beyond to help my daughter get through treatment with the hardships and stress that comes along with her anxiety disorder. They are so sweet to her and are able to comfort her without making her feel bad or embarrassed. I would recommend them to anyone who wants outstanding professional performance and genuine care for their patients.

I have had all four of my children treated by Dr. Golden and highly recommend his practice. The staff are professional and kind. Dr. Golden takes his time to explain exactly what needs to be done and I have never encountered any “surprises” with the treatment my children received. I am a very satisfied customer, and my kids smiles are perfect!

Dr. Golden is by far the nicest orthodontist and he does fantastic work!!! His “bedside manner” cannot be beat. He explains every detail every step of the way. When my child had a wire poking the staff got her in immediately without fail. Front staff are wonderful and so are all the supporting dental techs. Can’t say enough positive things about CDO and Dr. Golden!!!

Dr. Golden and staff ar the best! I’m super sensitive in the toofers. They work with me to make sure I’m in as little pain as possible! They are super flexible with appointment times and are always very responsive when I Call. Issues have come up here and there and they are always super professional about resolving whatever issue I’m having. I would definitely recommend!

Dr. Golden is a wonderful orthodontist with kindness and patience. I am over 40 and had to have braces as an adult. He explains things very well and is very detail oriented. He wants your smile to be perfect! The staff is very friendly and helpful, as well. I highly recommend Dr. Golden.

My son was a unique case due to being born with a cleft palate. The orthodontist office from the cleft team was not near our home and orthodontist appointments are often and ongoing. However there is more intervention needed with a cleft than without and the treatment is not the same. Dr. Golden was extremely knowledgeable even with my son’s circumstances. It has been a long process but we are finally in the end phase and couldn’t be happier with the results! Dr. Golden and his staff are extremely professional and flexible in meeting the needs of their patients. My oldest son also saw Dr. Golden with fantastic results. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Golden, his assistants and his office staff. I’m hoping my youngest son will not need orthodontics but if he does I know where to go!

At 50 something I decided it was time to straighten my teeth and correct an excessive over-bite. Luckily, I was referred by my dentist, to Dr. Golden; it took about 2 years, and I am so incredibly happy with the results! Dr. Golden, his assistants and staff were exceptional to work with, they made an uncomfortable experience easy to get through, with their support, encouragement, and explaining every step of the process with professionalism. Such a great team!! Thank you!!! :))

I wanted to take the time to write and tell everyone about Dr. Golden and his staff, something I don’t normally have/take the time to do. But knowing that our experience was so VERY EXCEPTIONAL it was a must do! My 13yr old son had braces and treatment with Dr. Golden. I can not say enough about his gentle and kind chair side manners! He is an exceptional doctor with outstanding communication and professionalism. His staff are just as gentle, helpful and kind. Never leaving my son with a bad experience. Always explaining what was done at an appointment and explaining any possible discomfort that he may experience due to tightening or wiring. I was leaning toward veneers, believing that my sons teeth were beyond help. He had an overbite, large spaces in the front as well as bell shaping to the front teeth that were angled to the side. We were told by a dentist that his bite was “perfect” and we should consider veneers to correct the spacing and shape. HOW VERY WRONG he was. I am so grateful that we consulted Dr. Golden before making that forever commitment of veneers!!! Dr. Golden was patient and explained his treatment and expected outcome thoroughly. I never once felt that he tried to contradict or undermine the dentist, he only explained what he had to offer thoroughly. Answering all my questions and concerns completely, and there were a lot! The decision to have Dr.Golden treat my son was one of the best. One and a half years later my son has a smile he is so very proud of. He can not stop smiling ear to ear, showing off a “naturally” beautiful smile! I will be forever grateful to Dr. Golden and his staff for all their help and kindnesses but especially for my sons beautiful smile that is a lifelong gift!
