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

Mitch W. from Great Neck, NY (Source: Yelp)


I want to preface this review that I rarely take the time to critique business on yelp however in this particular instance I felt that several of the previous reviews were so utterly inaccurate that it drove me to write this: 1. Dr. Gordon and his entire staff are excellent, helpful, honest and knowledgeable. Most importantly they are completely upfront about the type of procedures they are recommending. The entire staff clearly goes out of their way to deliver a clear and concise explanation regarding any procedure. The entire team explains in laymen’s terms the justification of the recommendation in additional to detailing and itemizing all costs taking into account insurance coverage payment, as well as any out of pocket expense that may or may not exist. 2. The people at this practice care and do not treat patients like cattle. They call after business hours to check on your progress if you had a procedure and although this is a slight nuance compared to other dentists and physicians I equate it to the difference between flying commercial vs. private. Personally, when my health is involved I have no problem potentially paying slightly more out of pocket than my insurance will cover and I mean slightly for a significant increase in service, attention and follow-up. 3. Dr. Gordon takes a holistic approach to dentistry and that is important to me and in my opinion should matter to most people as well. Dr. Gordon has taken the added effort not to use mercury fillings as wells as purchasing state of the art x-rays machines that emit the least amount of radiation necessary. I recently read that Americans receive the most amount of radiation on an annual basis from their dentist office. Although this may cost slightly more to install it pays off in spades in the long run for his patients. Augmenting their overall health and quality of life. 4. For example, I had two mercury fillings removed due to elevated mercury levels in my blood and after a great deal of research I realized that Dr. Gordon was uniquely qualified to perform this procedure. His practice incorporates the latest state of the art equipment that protects patients from added mercury exposure during the removal process. Remarkably, the process was basically painless and relatively quick. 5. Dr. Gordon has clearly spared no expense in furnishing the office with the latest equipment in order to insure the safety and long term health of his clients. 6. On a slightly different note relating to a previous Yelp post; to criticize someone for making a personal attempt via telephone to address a dissatisfied customer is completely absurd in my opinion. Keep in mind what people write is directly correlated with perception and who wouldn’t take the time to try and alter a negative perception when it affects their livelihood. If the circumstances were reversed I certainly would have done exactly the same thing in Dr. Gordon’s position. 7. Lastly, poor Yelp review explanation — my belief is that the only reason several of the other reviewers were dissatisfied is entirely an issue of paying a slight out of pocket expenses and has absolutely nothing to do with service or quality of care. In conclusion, I truly believe the old adage you get what you pay for in this world and this proverb applies directly to Dr. Gordon and all of his employees.

BEST DENTAL EXPERIENCE EVER!! Dr. Stephen J. Gordon is brilliant, compassionate, and most caring. I received great service from my first phone call from an exceptionally professional office staff. Insurance and pricing were discussed upfront with no hidden surprises. I am most grateful!!

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


All my visits have been great over the years that I have been seeing Dr Gordon, but this one was even more special since one of my front teeth got chipped in a recent home accident.  Not only did Dr Gordon quickly fit me into his busy schedule but he managed to fix it during the visit without capping it which would have entailed additional visits and significant cost. I happily walked out of his office with my smile back. I just wish there were more stars I could give him!!!

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


I am a long time patient of Dr. Steve Gordon and can’t recommend him too highly.  I owe the health and appearance of my teeth to his expertise.  His totally modern office is a very pleasant place, not to mention the fantastic views of Millennium Park and the lakefront.  Dr. Gordon has always gone out of his way to make sure my dental work is as pain free as humanly possible.  I recently needed to have a lower bridge replaced and the result was perfect.  My teeth have never looked better.  Dr. Gordon has that perfect combination of experience gained through many years of dentistry and a youthful attitude and physical ability.  Dr. Gordon’s staff is second to none.  I want to especially mention Kyle, the best dental hygienist  in Chicago.

Renee Boesch (Source: Google)


Don’t believe the bad reviews! I have feared dentists my whole life because I was born with weak teeth. Lots of procedures! Dr. Gordon and his amazing staff are kind, gentle and make your appointment feel like you’re just going to visit old friends. He also refers you to the best of the best. His words, “I will only refer you to a specialist that I would refer my family to”. He’s terrific. When COVID calms down, I’ll be heading back to see my “old friends”.

Judy W. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Excellent service and care.  Dr. Gordon and Patty were very thorough in explaining each step of my dental care treatment.  I especially appreciate the fact I was able to take care of what would have been 3 treatments in any other dental office in just one visit.  I was equally impressed with the technology they use for treatments…I’ve never seen anything like it.  My treatment was painless.  I have never written a YELP Review…but felt I needed to share my exceptional experience.

Peggy A. from Evanston, IL (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Gordon for years for my abysmal teeth. While going to the dentist is never a treat, he has always given terrific service at a price that, if not inexpensive, is along the lines of other dentists in the Loop. Most important for me, he’s managed to deal with a couple of emergencies that other dentists would have walked away from. If you’re looking for a a great dentist, a nice staff, and an experience that is made as pleasant as possible, I can highly recommend him.

Dr. Stephen Gordon is the most thorough knowledgeable up to date conservative honest dentist I have had the pleasure to work along side. My family friends and long time patients have expressed the most positive feedback on their experience with Dr. Gordon. The best chairside manner and the most sensitive compassionate care for the apprehensive nervous patient. Treats his staff tops as well!!

Janet W. from River Forest, IL (Source: Yelp)


Once again, I had a great experience at millennium park dental. I have been following Delia around for years. Not only is she the most thorough dental hygienist I have ever met, it she is a deeply caring and beautiful person. She really is passionate about her vocation. I am so glad she introduced me to doctor Gordon. Yesterday, I was sure that I would have to have a crown. Instead, he was able to evaluate the problem and treat things much more conservatively. I was thrilled not to have to do any major work. Beyond this, all the extra precautions for safety that they take was no surprise. Everyone who works here has a great personality and makes the patient feel welcome.

Louise E. from Saint Charles, IL (Source: Yelp)


DR. Gordon is the most exceptional dentist I have ever been to. He is thorough and professional with a wonderful “bed side manner”. The education and exemplary dental care is beyond any dentist  care i have ever had. His office manager is professional,, helpful and kind. I have problems with my gums in part from poor cleanings over the years. The cleanings were the deepest and best I’ve ever had. A very big difference from all past cleanings . DR Gordon and his entire staff are  outstanding.

Daniel M. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Gordon is VERY professional. I need extensive work to repair my teeth (going to the dentist has always brought me great anxiety). Dr. Gordon is serious about his patient’s oral healthcare. He explained, in GREAT detail, the treatment plan he created. The plan he built for me will fix all of my teeth, but it is pricey to say the least. It is important to note that I checked the procedural codes he provided me against my insurance provider’s website and I will say that what he is charging, in most if not all covered procedures, is much less than the local maximums. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gordon

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


I have never had any dentist explain things nearly as much as they do. Most dentist just tell you you need something and then do it. These amazing professionals tell you why they’re doing everything. I learned so much everytime I go there I feel like I should pay for a class! When Delia cleans my teeth she tells me about the history of Dentistry about how Native Americans used to clean their teeth about how you can tell if you have an illness just by looking in your mouth. It’s fascinating!

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


Dr Gordon has great chair side manner. He used the latest in technology to obtain baseline data. He used a camera and explained what was going on tooth by tooth! Wow! I have never had an exam as thorough as this one. He thoroughly explained what was going on with my teeth and preventative measures I could take to preserve my teeth. Never once did I feel he was pushing expensive or unnecessary treatment. After his recommendations he offered to submit a pretreatment estimate so that I could review the costs of future treatment. This practice also accepted my PPO insurance, submitted my claim and I will then be billed for the difference. The dental hygiene experience was the best you could ask for. Thorough and educational. This was not a 1,2,3 polish you’re done. Teeth never felt as clean as when I left that dental practice. 5 stars!

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


This place is the BEST!!!!!! Delia has changed my life!!! My teeth have been TRANSFORMED!!! I’ve sent many people to her and they all come back SO HAPPY and pleased with the results. Best hygienist EVER. Dr. Gordon is awesome! He gave me a full TOUR of my mouth. I’ve never had such an exam. So very happy to have found this place. 5 stars all across the board!!!

Tony H. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I had an amazing expierence  with Dr. Gordan. I went to my ex dentist for a cavity and they told me it would be 1000 out of pocket.  I went to Stephen because I couldn’t hear good enough about him from a family member. He told me he could do it for 50. He used no anesthetic and it only took 5 min.  I didn’t feel a thing. Dr gordan is a real pro and knows what he is talking about. I can’t recommend him any higher. He will now be my dentist for life.

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


I love Dr. Gordon and his staff. Very welcoming and put my anxieties at ease. Like many of us, I hate, hate, HATE dentists. A necessary evil in my humble opinion. But this office has helped sway me a little. They actually stay by your side for nearly the entire appointment. No “let me give you a shot of Novocaine and disappear for twelve hours while you wait for it to work…” Nope- Patty and/or Dr. Gordon stay right there with you. It’s so nice for someone like me who gets so anxious about medicine- even when I take Tylenol! They are very attentive and put your comfort first. Dr. G is also super fast, but thorough (he has done a filling in under 30 minutes for me!). The receptionist, Sherry, is great and very careful to explain everything you need to know re: cost, apptmt possibilities, etc. AND, she learns your name and remembers it! Overall, best dentist EVER!

Allyson E. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Gordon was very friendly, and I really appreciated that he took the time to explain what procedure was needed. His entire staff is very friendly. The dental hygienist, Brenda is very thorough in her cleaning, and tries to make the process as painless as possible while making sure the job is done well. As someone who has not had the most pleasant of experiences with dentists, this has been a good experience, and I will be making Dr. Gordon my regular dentist.

Nicole R. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


The quality of the service and level of professionalism is excellent at Dr Gordon’s.  Dr. Gordon is focused on preventive care and is concerned about the overall health of patients which is a rarity for dentists. He uses state of the art equipment, explains the health condition of every tooth in your mouth and shows it to you on a digital screen.  Every procedure is fully explained, so you can determine if you want it or not.  I’ve had other dentists in the past who may have been less expensive, but most were mediocore to the extent they compromised the health of my teeth.  The one exception is Dr Thomas — but he passed several years ago and I had not found another dentist I liked as well as him until now.

They’re so good we keep going back. At least more than 5 yrs. My wife and two kids. The staff is professional. And you know you’re surrounded by individuals that will provide proper dental healthcare,-And know what they’re doing… The only pain you’ll ever really feel is “the little pinch”. We don’t just go when we have to. We also see the hygienist twice yearly to prevent any gum disease then Dr. Gordon checks to see if there’s anything that needs to be addressed. It’s a win win

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


this is coming from someone who has extreme phobia and anxiety of dentistry, i put off going to a dentist for about 10 years partially from lack of health insurance/money and also because of the anxiety of going. I start to get some intense tooth ache pain from a known cavity that I have put off having looked at. His office was able to fit me into an emergency appointment the same day and also discounted the exam fee due to my situation. Everyone there was extremely professional and nice and they didn’t make me feel bad about taking bad care of my teeth. When he concluded that a root canal was needed, he was able to get me an appointment at a specialist that SAME DAY, a good contact who also discounted my costs. (i suppose one could argue that they rather he do the root canal rather than pay a higher prices specialist for the job, even with my extremely limited interaction with him, i believe he would be perfectly qualified to perform a root canal, but considering the scheduling constraints I really can’t complain!) I will definitely recommend this place and come back for cleanings once my root canal issue is taken care of. PS the view of the lakefront from the dentist chair is wonderful.

Sarah M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gordon has been a savior to me during what I’m calling my “Dental Odyssey 2012-13”. I came to Chicago on holiday and was badly in need of root canal therapy on one of my teeth — the concierge at our hotel (the W) referred me to Dr. Gordon and I got in immediately!! SO thankful! Sheri, his receptionist, was so incredibly nice and helped me relax about the situation. Dr. Gordon’s assistant was also incredibly kind and easy to talk to. Dr. Gordon explained everything he was going to do, explained as he did it, and moreover answered my multitude of questions before and after the procedure. Even better than that, Dr. Gordon wanted to hear how things turned out for me after I left — which I think is a sign of someone who really cares about, and has interest in, their profession and patients. Dr. Gordon stayed in touch with me throughout my continued journey (it’s a long story) after I returned home from the holidays even. I cannot recommend Dr. Gordon and his staff more! The view from the office ain’t bad either 😉

Joyce W. from McHenry, IL (Source: Yelp)


I am a long-time patient of Dr. Gordon’s. I live a few miles from the Wisconsin border, and it’s not always easy or convenient for me to go downtown to see a dentist. But that was my thinking before the Big Dental Debacle. You see, about 8 years ago I had an emergency dental problem and foolishly thought I could see a dentist out where I live. What a fiasco that turned out to be! I discovered I had a bone infection in the front of my mouth, necessitating extensive dental work. Well, the local dentist wasn’t sure what was wrong or what to do to correct it (neither he nor any of the other local dentists he spoke with understood that the bone was infected!!!). He consulted with a local dental surgeon, as well as two other dentists from the area, and even sent me to see a specialist. They all talked about maybe giving me a bridge, and whether they should take out one tooth or if more would be better, and on and on, but no one was sure exactly what to do. Meanwhile, I was taking pain pills and not getting any help. Honestly, it was pretty scary that none of them could agree on what I needed. I quickly realized I needed to see Dr. Gordon. He had been my dentist for several years when I worked downtown, but after I retired I felt I was too far away to go downtown a few times a year for cleanings, etc.. But I called Sheri and got in to see Dr. Gordon immediately. The problem turned out to be even worse than I could have guessed, leading to the removal of several teeth as well as the diseased bone; then bone replacement and, eventually, dental implants. But as soon as Dr. Gordon spoke with me and examined my mouth, he knew what course to take. He then consulted with a dental surgeon nearby with respect to the surgery I would need. Dr. Gordon and the surgeon laid out a plan and determined everything that was required to bring my mouth back into good health. It was a long process before I received my final implants, but I was kept informed every step of the way, and felt comfortable knowing I had the best dentist in the business working on me. I never felt for a moment that either of the doctors was uncertain of what course of action to take or what was going to happen next. Dr. Gordon is an easy going guy who genuinely likes his patients and LOVES what he does. He does, indeed, have a state-of-the-art office, and some very cool gadgets. If you ask, he’s happy to show you some of them! I have never had to wonder how a procedure would be performed and never had to ask him to explain why a certain procedure was necessary. These are things that Dr. Gordon explains to his patients before he does anything. Oh, and he’s great at giving those sometimes horrible numbing shots. I hate shots, but feel next to nothing from his. As for his staff, Sheri and Kyle are the greatest. Sheri is always there to make sure you get an appointment when you need it, understand the charges for your procedure, and gets your claim in to the insurance company almost before you walk out the door! She’s awesome. And Kyle, the hygienist, is kind, sweet and is without question the best hygienist I’ve ever gone to. And during my old search for a suburban dentist as good as Dr. Gordon, I’ve sadly seen quite a few. To sum it all up, I’m a Dr. Gordon devotee at this point. I make the trek to Chicago on the train – about 2 hours each way – and don’t complain about it. Well, maybe to my husband. But I would never consider going to another dentist, and am grateful that Dr. Gordon will most likely outlive me. I’d hate to go through the nightmare of trying to find another dentist to replace him! Oh, and one other thing. I receive compliments all the time about what a beautiful smile I have. Why, thank you – yes I do!

Delia is absolutely the BEST dental hygienist ever! She provides excellent service and is highly knowledgeable. She takes the time to thoroughly educate her patients regarding the importance of oral hygiene and goes above and beyond. She has many years of experience and knows what she is doing! Dr. Gordon is a great dentist! He is very personable and intelligent. He takes the time to educate his patients as well. He is up to date and highly knowledgeable in the field! The practice is located in a beautiful suite across Millennium Park , so you get a stunning view of the city and lake while you’re there!

Amy Graff (Source: Google)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Gordon for years and there’s no better dentist in the city. He’s caring, has a kind bedside manner, attentive, and always up-to-date on the latest in the dental industry. More than anything, he’s committed to doing minimally invasive work. Sherry, his longtime receptionist, is competent and makes sure payment information and appointments are always confirmed. And, to boot, his office is beautiful and has the most stunning views!

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


Absolutely feel at home at this dental office. The receptionist is amazingly kind and patient. I have had cleanings done by multiple of the hygienists here and they are very experienced and VERY knowledgeable. They take a full hour to thoroughly clean your teeth from every angle and beneath the gum line. On my last visit, I really made them work because I’ve been drinking fruit smoothies every day since my last appointment and admittedly not keeping up as well as I should be with oral hygiene. This resulted in a black line outlining the lining of my gums on the insides of my teeth. Walked out with all of that gone and as if I had a new set of teeth. Definitely the boost i needed to get on top of my oral routine. Dr. Gordon is incredible as well. Very personable, very honest, and very skilled. Everything you want in a doctor or dentist.

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


I was referred to Dr. Gordon because like most people I’m afraid!  I was so pleased!  He explained the whys of my problems.  Put me at ease because he explained everything so well!  Helped me prioritize and his staff was very helpful and sensitive to my fears!  I strongly recommend Dr. Gordon, especially if you are afraid of the dentist.  I also learned how those silver old fillings release harmful fumes.  I read the book he recommended, by Dr. Tom McGuire.  Always felt mercury was not a good thing to have in your body!   No issues with my insurance!  He is very considerate with my financial situation and my dental fears. Thank you Dr. Gordon and staff!

Racquel J. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I love this place. Every time I walk in they make me feel like Family. And this is only my second time. I have known Delia for years and I will follow her where ever she goes. Delia, is perfections and takes the time to educate her patients. Every time she teaches me something new. Delia has been in the field for over 20years and speaks very highly of Dr. Gordon and I can see why. He is a sweet knowledgeable professional man. That’s why I’m bringing my whole Family here!

Betsy C. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Great experience! The hygienist was very kind & thorough. Dr. Gordon did a great job with walking me through my options and has an excellent bedside manner. I’ve been to dentists in the past that really go into overkill with diagnosing everything as a “cavity” when in fact I just have deep grooves in my teeth.

Lavetta M. (Source: Zocdoc)


From the moment I walked into Dr. Gordon’s office I felt welcomed. Dr. Gordon and his assistants were extremely professional, detailed and made me feel comfortable. I expressed my concerns to Dr. Gordon and he answered them in detail. Bedside manners are 100 plus! I would recommend this office to everyone. I am looking forward to my next dental appointment! Thank you so much Dr. Gordon and staff. Many blessings to you!

John K. (Source: Zocdoc)


I am a new patient with Stephen Gordon, DDS and he got me right in to take care of a broken tooth I had. He explained why the condition ocurred, what treatment steps were recommended and had the tooth stabilized for the plan of action in less than 1 hour! The only challenge the office had was getting into the provider side of Zocdoc to access all the paperwork that I had pre-filled out. This link did not work

Amy G. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Despite having moved to the northern suburbs eight or nine years ago, I still make the haul downtown to see Dr. Gordon. With Sherry’s cheerful demeanor at the front desk, Patty and Kyle’s attentive, thorough cleanings, and the amount of time Dr. Gordon gives each of his patients and their concerns, I’m happy that this has been the office taking care of my teeth for most of my life. Most of all, I have a strong appreciation of Dr. Gordon’s embrace of new technologies. Dedicated to being as minimally invasive as possible in his procedures, Dr. Gordon always is on top of new techniques to make his patients more comfortable and enhance their smiles. Add in the beautiful new decor and one of the most amazing views in the city of the lakefront, parts of the skyline, and Millennium Park, and you have a truly winning experience.

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


I recently moved to Chicago and was worried about finding a good dentist out here.  I have visited Dr. Gordon’s office twice and am really pleased with the care and attention I have received.  I have put off going to the dentist for far too long (and wanted to put it off even longer, but had a toothache). I was impressed by the thoroughness of the exam.  I was concerned about costs due to the fact that I don’t have comprehensive dental insurance, but the office was willing to work with me.  I am now able to get the level of care I need without breaking the bank. Even though there are many other dentists that are closer to where I live, I will continue to go to Dr. Gordon.

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


I am beaming after just leaving Dr. Gordon’s office to get my first 2 cavities filled. It was easily one of the most pleasant experiences I’ve had at any doctor’s office, from start to finish. After an initial consultation appointment to determine insurance coverage, I returned to the office and was seen before my appointment time, was treated with the utmost respect and kindness, and had both my cavities filled in less than 30 minutes. I understand my cavities were probably very shallow and caught early, but they used a fancy sandblaster tool instead of a drill and I didn’t even need Novocaine. Dr. Gordon and Veronica kept me looped into every step of the procedure. Sheri is incredibly pleasant and patiently took the time to help me understand my insurance coverage. I paid about $280 since I opted for the Ozone treatment, but it feels like a worthwhile investment to know the cavities are gone. What a joy, I can’t say enough good things about this experience or this staff; they are all amazing! I highly, highly recommend them for your dental needs.

I have seen Steve Gordon my entire adult life. He and his staff are excellent! A group of talented professionals, courteous, and capable. This visit, as all visits, went smoothly. It was painless and pleasant. He and his staff make every consultation for individual needs and situations. I recommend him completely.

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


I was referred to Dr. Gordon by my fiend Delia Vazquez.  I know Delia for over 10 years and she has been my hygienist all this time.  Not only i trust her excellent work, but i also trust her judgements when it comes to my dental hygiene.  Delia felt that Dr. Gordon will meet my expectations since I am always seeking for sound, loyal and professional services.  I finally went to visit Dr. Gordon and from the time I entered his office and was greeted by Sheri to the time i had my consultation with Dr. Gordon, i can say that his professionalism, his knowledge, the way he found time to explain to me what i need to get done, was beyond expectations.  He efficiency in communicating with me was  in such detail work i needed done vs prices involved, I did not think twice to consider a second opinion.  You do not find services of that excellence nowadays.  I wish i would have found him years before so that i don’t have to address all the changes he is recommending today.  In summary I am glad i found him and i know he will take care of my dental needs in the next months to come.  I highly recommend a visit with him if you are looking for a GREAT/ BEST dentist with excellent service and hygienist team.     Maria Mora
