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

Kizhel T. from Cebu City, Philippines (Source: Yelp)


They are the only dental clinic that was available for me for my emergency toothache…and thankfully i landed at their hands…Dr. Treinkman was so good. I had a root canal and I did not feel any pain whatsoever. I was done with everything in just 3 hours without having to go back again contrary to past root canal procedures wherein you have to finish everything in 3-4 sessions. They are also very efficient and they got the modern technology to give you a fast, painless and non traumatic dental procedure. I would recommend them 100%!

I wanted to thank the team at East Village for seeing me today at the last minute and completing a pretty painless root canal. Everyone from the front desk to the assistants and of course Dr. TREINKMAN where great. I wanted to thank you again for being so kind, patient and understanding of my situation and getting me fixed up so quick!

Mary Pat C. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Treinkman for a few years now for routine cleanings and more intense procedures as well, and I just want to shout from the rooftops what amazing people they are at East Village Dental. At another dentist, I had a horrific experience with a root canal, which is how I met Dr. T. He helped fix me up from the bad procedure, and has done two flawless root canals/crowns for me since. Not only that, but due to my upsetting previous experience at another dentist, I have VERY intense anxiety about dental procedures, and the staff could NOT be more accommodating and kind. It is really remarkable how sympathetic and supportive they are during these long procedures. I am very indebted to everyone there – from the team at reception to Dr. T and his hygienist team… thank you from the bottom of my heart. OH and thank you for bringing SHADOW the dog on the team, too! He was a huge help to me yesterday to calm my nerves!

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


Everyone from front desk, technicians to Dr. Treinkman all professional and very knowledgeable.  I made an appointment on an emergency tooth and they saw me immediately (on  a Saturday) and the procedure was flawless.  So I made an additional appointment for some crown work.  Dr. Trienkman was awesome!  Thank you!

I have visited a few dentist offices, but East Village Dental Centre is by far one of the best in all aspects. The admin staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The dental staff are also great and personable. I have had my 2 kids (under the age of 6) and I here for cleaning and treatments and super impressed of the service. You get real time and visual progress of every stage of treatment. They are great with kids and know how to make them comfortable, removing all anxiety.

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


I have been going here for years and even as I’ve moved to different parts of the city, I’ve kept them as my dentists. Pragna is AMAZING! I enjoy catching up with her and Charlie is always helpful too. Dr. Treinkman is efficient and a wonderful dentist. Confirming appointments is easy and they are always on their game. Everyone is friendly and professional. Best dental practice in Illinois!!!

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


There was a very relaxed atmosphere here- no one was in a rush, everyone was focused on the task at hand and not thinking about the many other things on their plates. This does not mean that they weren’t efficient though- my procedure was much quicker than I had anticipated. Everyone was very kind and very capable. My dental work went as smoothly as possible, and Dr. Treinkman was very careful to make me as comfortable as he could. What I appreciated most was everyone’s attitude- I have been to many other dentists who were patronizing and made me feel awful about how much work needed to be done to my teeth. Those dentists made it harder to go back (and it’s already a struggle for me). Everyone here was simply matter-of-fact about what needed to be done- no guilt trips, thank goodness. 🙂 For the first time in many years, I feel comfortable about going to the dentist. I still don’t like it, but East Village made it less unpleasant.

Awesome experience. I had been suffering in extreme pain and desperately needed emergency dental care. I found East Village Dental Centre while googling for help. I submitted a request for an appointment late Thursday and I received a call early Friday asking if I was okay and when I could come in. They even helped arrange getting my insurance information ahead of time so I wouldn’t have to worry about out of pocket costs. All the “new patient” intake forms were easily done online on their secure website. I was able to be seen immediately upon arriving and everyone was exceptionally nice and welcoming. I have a lot of problems and after getting examined and having images taken, my treatment options were thoroughly explained as well as cost of care with & without insurance. I had teeth extracted doing this visit and I didn’t feel a thing. I’ve honestly never felt this comfortable at the dentist ever in my life. I’m very thankful I came here and looking forward to the continued care of my troubled teeth.

If you’ve encountered bad dental services in the past and is skeptical of getting proper dental care. Go to East Village (Gary Treinkman) dental office; they do not disappoint! You will be very pleased with the service. The dental office provided effective dental care and detail information on the treatment needed for my teeth. They have modern technology and explain everything to you that’s going on in your mouth. The prices are pricey paying out of pocket. However, the services provided is above average; compared to any dental offices I’ve been to. You will receive treatment that equates to comprehensive, and equality care. I love this place! Thank you for redoing my cavities the correct way and elevating the pain, preventing me from eating.

Mike Y. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had two cleanings at East Village Dental, one from each of their two wonderful hygienists – Pragna and Joddi are great! I felt that my cleaning was thorough – I love that just clean feeling! Dr. Treinkman checked every tooth and gave me the low down on my teeth. The office itself is so high tech! I love the fact that I can see what the dentist sees because they show my xrays and images on the huge flat screen TV’s in each room. I haven’t had to have do any fillings but if I ever need anything, I’m gonna have these guys do it!

Lauren O. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


A few weeks ago I came in to East Village Dental and was treated by Dr. Treinkman for a cracked crown (despite it being a Monday, typically one of the busiest days yo receive dental care, I was given an appointment as soon as they could see me)  that same day. I have been a patient of Dr. Treinkman’s for over 15 years now, and as usual, I was given immediate care in a calm and efficient manner. As dental appointments go, every experience I’ve ever had at East Village Dental has consistently been pleasant and of the utmost quality. I’ve referred my closest friends to the care of Dr. Treinkman and his staff and will continue to do so. Dr. Treinkman and his right-hand hygienist Pragna are skilled professionals in dentistry worthy of the utmost client confidence. My trust in their care has evolved to my regarding them as practically family.

Emmett McGinley (Source: Google)


My visit was extremely pleasant. They were able to see me quickly when I was in a great deal of pain. The reception staff were very nice and also patient in helping me navigate payment options. The assistant, Joel, who performed my first x-rays was kind and efficient and Dr. Treinkman and his assistant were a pleasure and made me feel comfortable during the entirety of my time there. Completed a series of x-rays and root canal in one appointment that had been booked the same day. I was very happy with my experience, from top to bottom, and would recommend others who are looking for similar care.

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


Awesome experience. I have many teeth problems but pain became completely unbearable, so I googled emergency dental care and East Village Dental had amazing reviews so I visited the website on Thursday night & requested an appointment. I got a call early Friday, in which I had the option to come in immediately but I set my appointment for today. All “new patient” intake was done online so when I got there everyone was nice and ready to take care of me. I’ve never felt so comfortable at the dentist ever and I’m so pleased at the care I received. I had teeth removed and it went so well that I didn’t feel a thing. Yayy I can’t wait to continue my dental care journey here.

Eva P. from Ann Arbor, MI (Source: Yelp)


SO impressed. I called with a terrible amount of pain at about 9am and was in the clinic by 9:45. They accepted my insurance, took me in right away, and both the assistants and the dentist (Dr. Treinkman) were extremely accommodating and friendly. Very very good at what they do!! I got four wisdom teeth pulled and would go back for any treatment I need in the future. Thank you SO MUCH!!!

Leang E. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Staffing makes the biggest difference when it comes to service. Dr. Treinkman has a great team, and they make a visit to the dentist much more bearable. I will insert a shout out to Marlene and Sandy for the ease of scheduling, explaining insurance, and handling the billing. The office was able to take the x-rays from my previous dentist and also show me what was going on with my teeth and testing out what was causing the pain. Basically, I needed a root canal and Dr. Treinkman got it done very efficiently and painlessly in less than the allotted time. In any even the pain has been gone and it put my mind at ease and made me worry about one less thing while out on my honeymoon vacation. I will be back for future visits for cleanings and probably a crown.

Awesome Dental Center. Called with a horrible tooth ache. Made room for me immediately. A few hours later they send me home pain free. I might add they take measures to protect their patients from COVID. When you enter the office, they take your temperature, provide a sink to wash your hands and a solution to rinse your mouth. The staff are friendly.

Anchelle W. from Miami Beach, FL (Source: Yelp)


I love the service that I receive at East Village Dental Center. I have been a patient of Dr Trienkman for at least 10 years. I received Invisalign through Dr Trienkman and the results were wonderful! I love my smile! I have never been disappointed with the quality of his work or the customer service that I have received at the office. My cleanings are great!  Pragna, the dental hygienist is through and professional. The office is modern and very high tech. I love it!

I started going here after my veneer fell out and I needed an urgent appointment. They were able to get me in that same day! The front desk staff are friendly, helpful and courteous. The dental hygienists who performed my cleaning were also very nice. Dr. Treinkman is great and super nice. Dr. McShane is also excellent, and very personable, even to kids! He is a perfectionist and took his time to make sure my crown fit perfectly and my bite was properly aligned. Their equipment are state of the art and they show you pics of your X-rays, teeth, gums and the inside of your mouth on a big screen so you can really see any inflammation or issues that need work. I’ve needed a lot of dental work throughout my life and have gone to dentists in three different cities, this is definitely the best place I’ve gone to. The only person who made me feel awkward was one of the dental hygienists who came in to discuss my bill…i’ve interacted with her twice. The first time she said my veneers were not very good (they were done out of the country), and when she left the room the other assistant told me that my veneers were just fine. And then the second time she injected the numbing agent and then asked for me to pay for the crown that they were fitting that day. This took me by surprise because I just paid my bill when I checked in. I asked if I can pay it later because I wanted to use my FSA card and I could not check my account on my phone. I told her the front desk has told me before that I can pay online with my card later. And she says they don’t/are not supposed to do it that way. And then she asks if I want to cancel my upcoming appt until I figure things out. It felt very weird like I was trying to scam them and that I was not welcome to come back until I’m sure I had money… I’d be fine if I never have to interact with her again.

Dr. Treinkman and his staff are awesome! They are very patient-focused and use the latest technology to provide great dental care. I had a complex root canal with no pain or discomfort, and the crown was made on-site during my appointment so I walked out of the office with no need for a follow-up appointment. Yay!

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


I came here thanks to a Google ad, and because I had a dental emergency and needed same-day service. I got it… and more. The staff here is fantastic, friendly, and surprisingly gentle when it comes to actual dental work. I actually got to TALK to the doctor at length about my issue(s) and he listened intently and then offered options. I feel like they actually value me as a patient. Also, I got the most comprehensive x-rays EVER in my first visit, which they show you on big screen tvs. Pricing is very reasonable ($50 discount for 1st visit btw). And I just now returned from the best, most pain-free cleaning I’ve ever gotten (Rheanna, the cleaning specialist, is a pure delight). What started as an emergency visit only, has become MY dentist in Chicago. They would get 6 stars I’d that was an option. Highly recommend.

Sarah J. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I give my highest endorsement to the East Village Dental Centre and all associated staff. I now consider Dr, Treinkman to be my dentist of choice, despite living in Washington DC. I experienced a dental emergency on a Saturday in December and was immediately accommodated. My displaced crown was bonded quickly, comfortably and effectively by Dr. Treinkman and I have since returned to receive a replacement crown. I feel completely confident in the care of Dr.Treinkman and certainly appreciate his highly competent, experienced and compassionate approach. The atmosphere within the practice is warm and welcoming and I was immediately impressed by the tenure of many of the staff. It is very evident that the team are highly skilled, passionate and take great pride in their work and place of employment. Prior to my appointment to replace my crown, Rui, the insurance coordinator, went to great lengths to assist me with ascertaining my new insurance coverage. He was extremely pleasant and efficient to work with and even followed up with me to ensure that I was satisfied with the care I received. Emily on the front desk was also absolutely brilliant, patient and informative and was obviously treating all patients with great care and respect, During my procedure, Juana and Ludivina took wonderful care of me and were highly skilled and reassuring. They were constantly reaffirming that I was comfortable and to their credit I did not experience any discomfort despite the lengthy procedure. In summary, my experience at East Village Dental Centre was immensely positive and I would highly recommend this practice to everyone.

I had the best dental experience of my life at East Village Dental. Every staff member was polite, accommodating, knowledgeable, and comforting. The facility is clean, professional, bright, and inviting. I was so scared at first because I hadn’t been to a dentist in four years. I have sensitive teeth, and a simple cleaning is usually very painful and uncomfortable. Pragna and Emanuel were so understanding and incredibly gentle when cleaning my teeth. They did such a good job, and it was painless for the first time in my life! Dr. Treinkman was fantastic and explained a lot of things that I didn’t know about dental health. Michael and Andrea at the front desk were so nice and professional and made the check-in/checkout process fast and easy. East Village Dental exceeded my expectations, and I highly recommend them!

Matthew Aklan (Source: Google)


I was referred to East Village Dental by a friend. I wasn’t unhappy with my current dentist – but they they had a lot of turnover – each time I went I met a new hygienist and dentist. Then to top that off they had a Covid outbreak around the time of my 6 month appointment. Today’s visit to EVD was fantastic. They were welcoming, knowledgeable and very nice. The technology they use – like manufacturing crowns in house and 3D scans of your teeth and skull is quiet eye opening. I was a new patient but didn’t feel like I was new. My cleaning went great and the doctor listened to my concerns and we created a treatment plan that I really wanted. A +!!

Tom B. from Glenview, IL (Source: Yelp)


My first visit was because their location. Every visit thereafter (8years) was because of there expertiise, customer care and consideration. They want to do what is right for the cutomer’s particular situation, NOT push their services. Big props to Dr. Treinkman and his TEAM, Pragna, Juana and Charlie and many others I have not mentioned.

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


I had avoided going to the dentist for so long, until 3:00am this morning… I went online and googled 24 hour emergency dentist, called just about every number available and left messages with every call center / voicemail I could. At around 6:45am, delirious from pain, I got a call from Michael and he set me up for an appointment right at 9:00am. Michael could not have been more helpful and understanding in getting me set all set up because at that point, I was in so much pain, I don’t imagine I was being very personable. When I had arrived and filled out paperwork everything there moved like a well oiled machine. Pragna, I believe her name is, was so informative and helpful with choosing the best options for today and following visits. Everything was shown to me and explained to me clearly. The best part of the whole experience was Dr. Treikman. He was so fast and had me in absolutely no pain without having to go under, which was all I could have ever asked for. After leaving messages with all those call centers and voicemails, East Village Dental Centre was the first and only call back I had received. Even at this point. Thank you so much for the amazing service!

I was absolutely terrified to get my wisdom teeth removed and I have to say that I am SO glad I went to this office to have it done.  This was the first time I had ever gotten a shot in my mouth and I have heard that it really hurts.  I was amazed that I barely felt it!  Then, the removal of the wisdom teeth was completely painless because I was totally numb.  It definitely felt weird to hear him pulling out my teeth (cranking and grinding) but it didn’t hurt a bit.  The dentist (Dr. Treinkman) told me was going to do a special kind of extraction to minimize my recovery time.  It must of worked because my recovery went really well.  I didn’t really bleed that much and I was completely back to normal in a couple days.  He prescribed Vikodin for the pain but I didn’t even take it because the ibuprofen I have at home was sufficient.  The next day, Dt. T called me to make sure I was okay.  I could tell that he genuinely cared.

The entire staff here from the front office on back has been nothing but amazing for me. I have major dentist office anxiety and hadn’t been to the dentist in a decade. Sadly, this means I need a lot of work. I had a few anxiety and crying attacks the first few visits and everyone, I mean everyone, was so nice, patient, and accommodating. They gave me the space I needed to calm down without rushing me to “get over it” because they had other patients. No one made me feel bad for not having been in to see a dentist sooner. I never once felt judged or shamed. I highly recommend this place and regret not coming here sooner. I also bring my children here and they are so wonderful and patient with them as well (they talk A LOT). Please don’t go anywhere else. You will have an amazing experience and everyone you talk to will be kind, compassionate, and helpful.

Beth P. from Morgantown, WV (Source: Yelp)


I’m very impressed with the entire staff at East Village Dental Centre. I had a toothache all weekend and when I called Monday morning, they got in within the hour. They didn’t push extraneous services on me, and discussed all my options, answering every last question I had. Prior to doing any work, they made sure I understood how much it was going to cost, what was covered by insurance, and they helped to make sure I was maximizing my benefits. I ended up being at their office for about 3 hours for all the work I needed done, and the staff was friendly the entire time. I’ve seen a lot of dentists over the years. I found East Village Dental Centre on Yelp; usually I find dentists through personal referrals. This is by far the best dental office/staff I’ve been to. I can’t say enough good things about them.

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


Dr. Treinkman did a fantastic job of explaining the recommendations. His use of technology with photos and 3D rendering was excellent. I have been seeing Dr. Treinkman team for many years for examsand in this case I needed some specialized work The facility is super clean and there is a parking lot with plenty of parking on Ashland. Another nice thing these days is they answer the phone f you need to call. They send out reminders via text which is much better than getting a call. Just want to reiterate that the use of technology for X-rays, photos and 3D rendering is essential these days and East Village Dental is in the game.

Jacob F. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Husband and I came here for routine checkup. Managed to squeeze both of us in same day. Super high tech compared to other dentists I’ve been to. They do all sorts of X-rays and pictures, you get to see a 3D reconstruction of your teeth and jaw which is really cool. We saw Dr Treinkman, who was super knowledgeable and wasn’t pushy like others I’ve been to. Highly recommended!

Charmane E. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Went there when a filling fell out and my regular dentist was out of town.  Now I am glad it fell out because I switched to this new high tech dental clinic after the one visit when they put the filling back.  My old dentist was fine, but she didn’t have all the new equipment like TV monitors so you and the dentist can see everything better.  Crowns that can be made on the spot so that you don’t have to have a temporary and wait for the permanent one and have another visit to cement it in permanently. Free parking lot next to the office. X-rays that use less radiation.  I’m sure I am forgetting other things that I like about this place. One is that some late evening appointments available. I am so glad I switched.

I went to east village dental for a tooth pain that turned out to be something much more extensive. I have major dental anxiety and had put off going to the dentist for a long time. The staff at east village is INCREDIBLE! They started with x-rays and broke down everything that was going on with my teeth in terms that I could easily follow. They then walked me through a treatment plan and gave me a few different options that would work best with my situation. When I expressed my concerns and anxiety they offered me various level of sedation that I could choose from if desired. We made a plan and they promptly made me an appointment for the next day. The day of I was a nervous wreck but the staff was absolutely amazing at keeping me calm. DR. Treinkman did my procedure and he was so kinda and comforting while I was prepping. The procedure went smooth and although I still have major dental anxiety I am confident that East village dental will be great for my follow up appointment and all other future appointments.

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


*Easy to make an appointment *Staff is very friendly,professional and knowledgeable *Clean *State of the art equipment *Any questions/concerns with cost/payment are easily discussed I’ve had several procedures done by Dr. Treinkman over the past few years and him and his staff have always been very kind with me and made me feel very comfortable. I definitely trust and value their opinions with my dental care and I would highly recommend his dental practice to anyone.
