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

Samantha M. from Vernon Hills, IL (Source: Yelp)


I have had universally good experiences with Dr. Barsa and his amazing staff. I have always had a hard time going to dentists, but This office is super friendly, and Dr. Barsa really takes time to make sure patients are comfortable, they understand what should be/is being done and that his work is perfect. They have really impressive measures in place for cleanliness/sterilization, so I felt relieved since I was going during Covid. I highly recommend Confident Smiles!!

Dr. Barsa is one of the best dentists I’ve ever had. I came in with a cracked tooth and filling. He took a sincere interest in saving my teeth and keeping them healthy. The two new fillings and a crown were done right away and are perfect. I especially appreciated knowing the pricing upfront. The staff was very professional helped me understand my insurance. The facilities are gleaming and up-to-date, and their procedures are well thought-out and effective, with special considerations for Covid-19. This is a first rate practice!

Belmont & California dental has changed its name to “Confident Smiles”. This name do honor the professional services given by Dr. Barsa and his staff. Dr. Barsa like not many dentists guide you through, and explains carefully every step he takes while doing dental works on you. He takes his time to learn carefully your dental insurance policies and discusses them with you. The quality of his work is highly commendable. His outgoing personality adds up to make a visit to his office a wonderful experience. Thanks Dr. Barsa and staff, you are doing a great job

Dr Basra is a great dentist. He is very professional and honest. Not only does he explain to you everything he does along the way, he makes sure the procedure is painless. He loves what he does and it shows in his work. Love that they use a text reminder system as well. I came to him when I didn’t have insurance and his prices are very competitive and fair. Now that I have insurance, I will continue coming here because he treats you like family.

Dr. Barsa and his staff are wonderful. I’ve always had trouble getting dental work done in the past, but with Dr. Barsa it’s much more comfortable. I had an issue that forced me to find a dentist (long overdue) in October of last year. I arrived and was relieved with the Covid precautions they employ. The front desk staff and assistants are kind and upbeat. The office is clean and comfortable. Dr. Barsa is enthusiastic and explains everything clearly and concisely, and really wants his patients to be well informed. They created a treatment plan and my issues were resolved within a few weeks. I had to come in again recently and was reminded at how good the whole staff is at their jobs. The visits are thorough without being excessively time consuming. I fully plan on sticking with Confident Smiles and would definitely recommend them to anyone seeking a dentist.

Nicholas B. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Dental work is usually not very pleasant, but Dr Barsa does make you feel welcome, informs you of everything he is doing and why, and most of all comfortable. I had to get a couple fillings, which he took his time and made sure I was not in any pain. In the end it was a thorough and excellent job done. He was also very fair with the costs that insurance did not cover, which i really appreciated since I live on a very tight budget. I really don’t have any complaints so I can’t help but give them five stars!

Nora D. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


When you need to go to the dentist this is the place to go. Dr. Barsa and his staff are friendly and welcoming making Confident Smiles my go to dental office. While getting major dental work done is not fun, getting to pick what you want to watch on Netflix or listen to on Pandora makes the appointment more relaxing. Dr. Barsa is clearly very skilled and knowledgeable. I received perfect crowns and root canals. He talks with you about your treatment plan every step of the way so you understand what he’ll be doing and why. He is accepting and nonjudgemental. I give Confident Smiles and Dr. Bards five stars for outstanding care, service, and providing a welcoming atmosphere.

I drive 45 minutes to go to this clinic because the staff are extremely helpful and always very nice and accommodating. Dr. Barsa takes his time explaining every single detail to me and at no point did I ever feel that I was being given a service I did not need or over charged. During COVID-19, I was hesitant to go to a dentist, but when I went to Confident Smiles, I was asked to wash my hands for at least 20 seconds, and gargle for at least 30 seconds. All the equipment is clean, and the staff wears multiple personal protective equipment while they perform the service; at NO extra charge; I heard some dentists are charging 10 to 25 dollars for such services. If you did not like the service, they will get you back in to make sure you are stratified.

I always get excellent care and service from Dr. Barsa and Lea. They always take the time to discuss and explain what options are available to me including my insurance coverage and out of pocket expenses. Dr. Barsa is very honest and sincere in his intentions to provide the best care and best treatment possible to his patients. Wishing you all the best for this New Year!

Perla T. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Shoutout to Dr. Barsa & Armando as well as the whole team at Confident Smiles for doing an excellent job and ensuring that I felt comfortable and safe throughout my various procedures. The clinic is clean and professional and appears to be well maintained. Regarding the dentist: Despite feeling anxious and nervous in my initial appointment, Dr. Barsa made sure that I was fully aware of what he was doing and checked in with me to ensure I was comfortable and pain free. I appreciate his compassionate yet honest bedside manner. I truly recommend this dentistry practice if you are someone who gets nervous at the idea of going to a dentist. They do not rush the process or make you feel like they only care about the money. I am thankful for Dr. Barsa’s commitment to his patients.

Angelica B. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I had been going to the same dentist since I was a child. I decided to switch dentists since my old one was out of the way and our schedules never lined up. My first visit was because of bad tooth pain. Dr. Barsa was thorough and honest (which is something my old dentist lacked and I think the instruments/machines they used weren’t as up to date)I’m glad I made the switch and am now pain free! I only regret not coming to Confident Smiles sooner!

Taylor Nettnin (Source: Google)


Dr. Barsa is fantastic! I was so afraid of going to the dentist for years due to a bad experience in the past, so I ended up getting many cavities that were left untreated for quite some time. Dr. Barsa has not once judged me for this or made me feel bad for neglecting my oral care for years, instead he has made the process of fixing my smile painless and now I’m super happy that my smile is almost 100% again. He also took me in as a new patient during the lock down Covid order in Chicago due to emergency tooth pain caused by a cavity and fractured tooth, so I’m super thankful that the entire office is very careful with their sanitization process and being overly careful to ensure everyone remains safe. Gargling with hydrogen peroxide is not a taste that I can say I enjoy, but I understand that it’s necessary and will continue to do so to show that I also care about the health and safety of those around me, and also to show my appreciation that they were willing to even let me walk through the front door.

I was lucky to find Dr. Barsa. I had not needed dental work for many years, and recently have needed several fillings including one large filling on my front tooth which needed cosmetic work. As a nurse who has worked in customer service and healthcare for many years, I can say from experience that Dr. Barsa and his staff here truly give competent, compassionate, honest and individualized care. Dr. Barsa is an expert at what he does. He provides complete explanation of what he is going to do, and prioritizes your comfort. He treats you like a human being, with true compassion. The filling on my front tooth is not even noticeable, and I had no pain. I highly recommend this office and Dr. Barsa to anyone needing any type of dental care.

Will M. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I went to see Dr. Barsa on a referral from my girlfriend. Normally I am quite nervous to go see the dentist especially with the fact that I had an impacted wisdom tooth that was decaying rapidly. Dr. Barsa took extreme care of me and the whole experience of going into his office was stunning. He is the definition of white glove service. He actually cares about you and that is the quality that made me like him the most! His whole team is extremely professional and courteous. They make sure you are well taken care of just as Dr. Barsa does. I didn’t have insurance so Dr. Barsa has his own dental plan that I highly recommend for anyone who doesn’t have insurance. Prices are very very competitive. He did an amazing job on what was a difficult extraction. Thanks again Confident Smiles! I will be using you all as long as I live in Chicago.

Sarah D. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I’d to start off by saying I’m pretty much terrified of the dentist. But Dr. Barsa  is amazing. I came in to his office a few weeks ago and found out I needed a root canal and was not looking forward to it. When I came in for the root canal I was more than terrified, I actually had a little anxiety attack right before. Dr. Barsa was so kind and understanding. First he helped me breath and calm down and then he gave me a cool damp towel for my head, turned the lights off in the room and just let me relax for a little bit before we started. The root canal went really well and it really was not as terrifying as I had imagined it would be. Not that I ever wanna do that again! But if I ever do I’ll definitely trust Dr. Barsa to take care of it for me! He is an awesome dentist and I’m so happy I found him!

Carmen L. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I recently became a patient of Dr. Barsa and my experience every time I go has been wonderful. He is a very knowledgable and kind Doctor. I love how the office is very diverse from the assistants to the receptionists they all speak different languages. When I made my appointment I had a few problems with my dental insurance but the ladies at the front desk were so kind enough to contact my insurance and help me. They are very efficient as well as kind enough to give me a variety of options for appointments since my work schedule always changes. I love the fact that while patients wait in the waiting room the receptionists offer you water or coffee as well as allowing us to change the channel. The office from the outside may not look as modern as the others but don’t let that fool you. The inside of the office is very modern and even up to date. Dr. Barsa let me know that he uses the latest technology when it comes to taking x-rays. Towards the end of my new patient exam I absolutely loved how the two receptionist came into the room and explained my treatment plan from the payments to how the procedures would be done. I will definitely continue coming here as well recommend my friends and family to be seen by Dr. Barsa.

Dr. Barsa and Dr. Carla are very professional and down to earth people. I am very satisfied with the services I was given by both doctors on separate occasions. Their dental assistants Lea, Martha and Fabiola are very skilled and experienced and very friendly to their patients. Lea is my favorite one, very calm, sincere and attentive to the patients’ needs and does her service with a smile. She is the “one of a kind” assistant there. The front desks ladies are okay but really needs improvement with their customer service. They speak and chat in their language and never heard them nor see them get up on their chair to even just do a small talk to their patients at the lobby. I understand their language too. The big lady there is very unfriendly. I have been their patient for years now. Their office manager before was awesome, she called to confirm your appointment and called if the doctor was not available to see you for your appointment and she knows how to speak professionally on the phone. There is a great improvement on the patients wait time now!!! Before Dr. Barsa’s time it was too looongggg of a wait. From 30 minutes to an hour and more. It was unbelievable and irritating. No kidding! That is why I decided to go to a different dental clinic. And then last year I had to go for an emergency root canal and went to see Dr. Carla again. And then met Dr. Barsa who is the new owner of this clinic. I saw good people in there so now I am back to their care. Kudos to the doctors and their awesome assistants!

Dr Barsa is incredibly friendly and helpful. And giving. He goes out of his way to make you not just comfortable but happy. He is often doing more and going above and beyond because he wants you to be healthy and love your smile. I have always hidden my smile and after my last visit, for something unrelated to the work I need done, I left wanting to show my smile off for the first time in decades because of his kindness. He and his staff are truly good souls. And skilled as any you will find in their field.

Been going to Dr Barsa for three years now. He is an excellent doctor with a great personality—and his STAFF also reflects his generous attitude toward life and the care of others. His staff is professional but warm-hearted. He is an artist and a perfectionist and will never cut corners, yet, looks out for each person on an individual basis and does not make recommendations if they are not necessary. This guy is not out to make the almighty buck—he actually loves what he does. He is a family-man who understands the need to care for our teeth to be healthy in all aspects of tooth care. Bottom-line. I highly recommend him because he cares.

Karina Z. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Barsa is the best. He has been my dentist for about a year now and he really knows what he’s doing. I had a tooth emergency while I was away on a work trip in France and he was so nice to give me his cell number and help me figure out what to do. Not many dentist will let you call them in the middle of the night when you’re freaking out. I usually hate dentists but he’s really patient with me and always reassures me. I’m so glad my cousin recommended him to me.

Ashiqul S. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I recently just moved to Chicago and I’m happy to say that I’ve found my go to dentist! The staff is super helpful and friendly and Dr. Barsa is just an amazing and funny person. He made sure I was comfortable and informed about everything that he was doing. He even gave me information and knowledge on what he’s looking for when he’s examining my teeth. I love that he takes the time to actually interact with his patients. I highly recommend giving this place a try!

Dr. Barsa is a perfectionist and I appreciate that. He takes the time to tell you everything going on with your teeth and with your oral health. If there is something going on, he will tell you why and what can be done to fix the problem. I’ve only been seeing him for a few months now, but he’s been able to help me fix years worth of dental issues. Also, his staff is amazing 🙂

Love this place! I have been coming here for years now, got my braces here and the experience was fantastic. Dr. Barsa is such a friendly guy he makes you feel at ease each visit. Highly recommend this place the environment is clean and sanitary especially in these times, rooms are cleaned before and after every patient. Everyone here works hard to make you feel satisfied with your visit!

Luz C. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


First time at this dentist office. Dr. Barsa and his staff are amazing. Those that know me know that I am a nerve wreck when it comes to seeing a dentist. Dr. Barsa and Martha made me feel so comfortable. He explained every detail on the Xrays and exam. He has an affordable dental membership for those that do not have dental insurance. I highly recommend this place. Thank you Confident Smiles.

Damian Z. from Lower East Side, Milwaukee, WI (Source: Yelp)


The dentist was amazing. He helped my wife with a last minute appointment when her filling fell out. We had been going to another dentist before him but they were closed when my wife’s had her tooth issue. I found this place through yelp and called them. They made me an appointment the same day, we came in and they fixed her tooth. It looked amazing and way better than how the previous dentist had left it. Now you can’t even tell she has a filling. Definitely will be coming here for all my future dental needs and cleaning. I recommend this place to all my friends and family.

Jane D. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Excellent experience! Easy to schedule, appointment went quickly, and staff was very informed and friendly. Dr. Barsa kept me very informed on what he was doing and very interested in making sure I knew the purpose behind it. He’s a big proponent of having the patient see for themselves where a cavity is and what it looks like, so there’s no chance any of the work is unnecessary. He also offers a great deal for uninsured cleanings & preventative care that I will definitely be making use of in the future.

Seleen Z. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


My initial visit was an awesome experience. When I arrived the front desk was very friendly. The dental assistant/hygienist was also friendly and considerate of my TMJ when taking x-rays. Dr Barsa clearly loves what he does and his explanation of my care was thorough and easy for me to understand. I was also impressed by the positive energy in this practice.

Sharon Mylrea (Source: Google)


Dr Barsa is fantastic. I’m not one who’s very comfortable at the dentist, but his professionalism and empathy is something I have never experienced at a dentist’s office. All of the staff are kind and skilled and work as a team and during COVID were very strict with all their protocols which helped me feel more at ease. Most of all, the work that was done was excellent, he did little things to make my smile shine

Very pleased, he was friendly, communicate, bright clean office with friendly staff. I was most impressed by their procedure for handling insurance. They gave me a sheet explaining the cost of procedures I was to have done with the amount insurance would cover and then what I would pay out of pocket. This is the first time I have ever seen this and it was so nice not to have to guess or be surprised by a bill.

Jessica S. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I stumbled upon Confident Smiles while looking for a new dentist after moving. At my first appointment, I was especially struck by how informative and upfront Dr. Barsa was. Dr. Barsa took the time to make sure I knew what was going on with my teeth and always asked my opinion on my treatment. Dr. Barsa has a great personality and is always happy and humorous. He truly cares about his patients and their care, while not being pushy. You never feel as though he is rushing or doing anything less than his best. I have now seen him for cleanings, fillings, and a root canal and have been extremely happy with the results of each procedure. I will definitely continue going to Confident Smiles.

Lynnette A. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I moved into the Avondale/Logan Square area last year and after reading several great reviews decided to try out Confident Smiles. The entire staff is very friendly, and the hours are flexible. I have a pretty crazy, ever-changing schedule so I have had to reschedule appointments many times and they have always been accommodating. Dr. Barsa has a professional bedside manner, but also a good sense of humour. He will walk you through everything to make sure you understand, and will give you the option to choose which procedures you want to move forward with if he thinks they are not immediately necessary. I have had several cavities filled with no pain whatsoever. Dr. Barsa and the rest of the staff do everything they can to make sure you are comfortable.

Nour K. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. George B. is a complete professional and expert at doing his job. He demonstrates incredible accuracy and precision in his work and goes through every step by explaining the pros, cons and future consequences to the patient. I personally had to get one of my teeth extracted and his friendly and cooperative environment really made me forget about all worries. The technology used is also very advanced as he was able to spot all the issues through an HD x-ray image within minutes. Most importantly, Dr. George is very understanding in terms of the patient’s budget. Acknowledging the fact that I had no health insurance, and that I am a minor, he made a significant cut on the prices. Overall, a very positive experience for me 🙂

Amazing Experience. A+ The entire staff was very nice, helpful and detailed. Doctor was awesome very professional and very clear and detailed on the upcoming work I need to get done and I am very excited in getting my issue resolved soon.I am in excellent hands. Definitely will be recommending for all my family to come to this office.

Malissa V. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I definitely recommend Confident Smiles! It is now one of my family dental homes. Dr. Barsa always makes me feel comfortable and calm. I was worried of getting two cavities filled, but he made me feel comfortable! My fillings were done amazing and look natural. I had the tooth colored fillings. I did not feel any sort of sensitivity after. He truly cares about his patients by explaining, in depth, the dental treatment he recommends. He prioritizes which dental treatment should be completed first in order to avoid severe dental treatment in the future. It is rare to come across dentists who truly care for their patients!
