Absolutely love going to Floss & Co.! I have been going here for about 3 years and their service is amazing. Doctor Izzy and his staff are top of the line and always make me feel welcome. When I have a question regarding any procedure or even billing, they do a phenomenal job explaining everything. I live in the north side and I travel to the south-side for the best dental service. Also, they are open on Sundays!!! Totally recommend Floss & Co.

Impeccable! I just had Dr.Izzy replace my tooth with a veneer. Very affordable, BUT! His work AMAZING he matched my tooth exactly to my other teeth, I cant say enough how beautiful his work is! Dr. Izzy and his staff made sure I was comfortable. He also takes care of my children as well. They love him. He’s so up to date with his services, painless shots! I didn’t even know he gave me one. Also, he cares so much. That is so important to me as I’m am very picky Dr. Izzy is honest as well. Finally everything’s top notch from the second you walk in, the staff , & the office. It’s Beautiful & very clean! He treats everyone like family….everyone. I would recommend this dentist!!!!! As I walked out with tears because my smile is perfect again. We hugged! It was awesome.

I just want to say I’ve had lots of bad experiences with dentists but this place def makes you feel welcomed and very comfortable! I needed a tooth pulled the dentist made sure my mouth was fully numbed before beginning and often made sure I felt no pain during the process. It’s been 24 hours and I had no pain since I left ! No pain pills were needed! I def recommend this place and yes I did become a patient! I can’t wait for my next. Visit to fix my smile!

Floss & Co is hands down the best dentist office on the South Side of Chicago. The staff is amazing and they are always on time and very organized so I have never had to wait. The facility is completely renovated and all the tools, chairs, and X-ray machines are state of the art which makes for a very cool experience. Dr.Izzy is always very caring and truly makes you feel comfortable with whatever he is doing. So far I’ve had multiple implants done, a few crowns, as well as some general fillings. Whatever the procedure he always made me feel relaxed and gave me a totally pain free experience.   I would highly recommend Floss & Co to anyone in the Chicagoland area.

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


This place was highly recommended by friends, and it’s been a wonderful experience. Staff are friendly, professional and courteous. They explain everything thoroughly to you before moving forward, and they work with you the best they can to pencil you in. Very nice modern facility. I highly recommend coming here for dental work.

I’m a new patient and was experiencing some pain on my wisdom tooth. I called and was able to get an appointment same day! The staff is so nice and accommodating. The office is beautiful and clean. The doctor (I forgot her name, sorry!) was nice, informative and very calm, which I appreciated because I was going to get my wisdom tooth removed. I definitely recommend Floss & Co to anyone in the area who is looking for a great dentist!

Andrea Sosa (Source: Google)


I have a long and traumatic history with dentists and was scared to become a new patient at any place. After taking my son here for the 1st time and seeing how clean the place is and how professional and friendly everyone was, I decided to also become a patient. My case was seen by Dr. Naem and a few others, and not a single one of them made me feel bad or uncomfortable. I really appreciate the level of care provided at Floss and Co.

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


I can’t speak highly enough about dr Izzy and his team.   I have always been afraid to go to dentist due to bad experiences but he makes things so comfortable. I had to get a root canal.  Just the sound of that freaked me out but he talked me through everything.  FANTASTIC bed side manner.  Very little pain.  He makes a point of keeping you calm .   If you need work done but are afraid, go see Dr Izzy.  He is the best I have ever experienced and I’ve had lots of work done during my years.

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


OMG! I just want to say this place was so cool Dr Izzy and his assistant Jenny were AWESOME they really took the time and patience to make a stressful experience a really pleasant and not so scary moment…. But lets not forget the cool music and the massage chair how cool is that.. First time there but it seriously wont be the last

Eden Munoz (Source: Google)


I had a cleaning and check up done last week and everyone was so friendly and welcoming! The dental hygienist was so informative about my dental health and Dr. Naem was also amazing. I ended up having a small cavity. When I went back he used a laser and I hardly felt anything!! I was so impressed with everything! I have never had such a great experience at a dentist before!! I definitely recommend them!! P.S. I should mention that I am pregnant and the work done was all safe.

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


My entire family goes here. Dr Izzy is a great dentist and a super nice guy. His motto is… “I treat every patient like they’re family”… and he does!! Not long ago, I had a specific concern that he addressed immediately. This is a doctor with old fashioned values, despite being relatively young. He tries to makes sure you’re as comfortable and pain free as possible. My former dentist doesn’t even come close. As an added bonus, the music they play is great, not the elevator music you’d expect at a dentist’s office. Garfield Ridge Dentistry is top notch.

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


I have never in my life been to a Dentist who goes above & beyond for his patients the way Dr Izzy does. I don’t know how many times I had to call him on an emergency because I was in pain, and without any hesitation he took good care of me & my needs. I remember calling him at 7 am on a Sunday morning, crying on the phone because I was in pain. Obviously his office wasn’t open. So, he called my pharmacy & ordered an antibiotic & pain meds until I was able to see him the next day which was Monday. I went in & had to have an emergency root canal done. He made the process easy peasy. Today I took my daughter to him for a full mouth xray, and I pulled him to the side to show him my 2 front teeth had a crack in it because of a cavity forming. Meanwhile as my daughter is getting her xray done, he lays my chair back & says he’s gonna fix my 2 teeth right then & there. Seriously how many Dr’s do you know that would do that? I can tell you there’s not many. I even had a outstanding balance & that’s the reason why I haven’t been back to see him was because I wanted to get my bill down, but that did not bother him to say the least. So needless to say if anyone deserves DENTIST OF THE YEAR it’s Dr Izzy. I highly recommend him to anyone! & FYI to all the ladies trust me you won’t be disappointed! 😉 Thank you Dr Izzy for building my self-confidence back up! You truly are amazing!!! 🙂

I avoided going to the dentist for about 3 years before being recommended to Garfield Ridge Dentistry. I received a teeth cleaning and x-rays. The dentist assistants are great here. I appreciate them explaining everything that was happening during the x-rays. Dr. Izzy Naem is very friendly and makes you feel like you’ve known him for years. The teeth cleaning went very well. Izzy is gentle and gives you time to relax your jaw after having it open for a long period of time. That day I was told I had a few cavities I needed to get filled in as soon as possible. I made the appointment a couple weeks later because I was so nervous about getting the fillings! I have a big fear of shots and wanted to cry as I entered the dentist office. Izzy noticed how stressed I was as he put the numbing gel onto my gums. He told me that there was a little device that would take my mind off of it and would make the shot hurt less. It was a handheld device that vibrated. He placed it in the same area where he was going to inject the needle. I just felt a little pinch but before I knew it, it was over. My mouth became numb in a few minutes and did not feel anything during the entire procedure.  It is important for me to feel comfortable in a clean and professional environment. Garfield Ridge Dentistry exceeded my expectations

I brought in my little one for his first dentist office visit and was Impressed by the staff and the doctors on duty. I was so Impressed I made an appointment for myself. Both of the visits were informative and the quality of care was superb. Dr Izzi was great to speak with and answered all my questions. My experience was great. This practice is not the type that will rush you in and out. They actually take their time with their patients. I am truly impressed and I am glad I chose floss and co for my dental needs.

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


AWESOME …and that is coming from the biggest baby on the southside. Just the thought of a dentist makes me sick to my stomach and my palms sweat but Dr. Izzy is the BOMB! He is what every dentist should be and his staff is just as great, even though I had fear tears everyone there made me feel like they knew exactly how I felt and a shout out to Melissa who is just as gentle and cool as you could wish for. Thanks to everyone at Garfield Ridge Dentistry you are a treasure of a find. No more fear of pain or people who don’t care because this place makes you feel comfortable and welcome. 4 stars!!!!

Best dental experience. All of the personnel were very nice and pleasant. The office area is state of the art and open, not your typical dental office. Very clean. Music is played which creates a nice experience. Whole family goes here even the kids, they had no problems. Highly recommended.

I went in for deep cleaning and chipped tooth repair. The office is clean, bright, and well-staffed. They have the newest technology! The dentists and assistants are friendly and excellent at what they do. My cleaning was done quickly and well, and I love the way my repaired tooth looks! HIGHLY RECOMMEND Floss & Co.

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


Great  place. Love that it is up to date and is clean. Staff was  great they were able to squeeze me into Saturday schedule because my insurance was going to finish and I wanted to use my benefits before they expire. And Dr. Izzy  was very patient and understanding of my nervousness of needles and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible.

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


I have been going here for a few years. The staff and DRs are wonderful and pleasant to interact with. They are very caring and professional. I have a high level of anxiety which causes me to have palpitations. However, both Dr. Naem and Dr. Dabah helped ease my anxiety during any dental work I had. Thank you for the exceptional care you provided me. I will recommend you to anyone in need of dental services. Thank you very much!!

CLEAN, SAFE and KIND! With what is going on in the world, you would think a dentists office would make you feel the most venerable. Needing to have your mask off as someones hands scope your teeth… But not at Floss & Co. Of course before the pandemic, their staff was always accommodating and communicative, which has remained untouched as they just reopened for in-person appointments. They took my vitals before I entered, which gave me peace of mind that they are not just sticking their equipment in anyone’s mouths. They made me feel extremely comfortable by not having me get out of my car until I can go right into a room. Besides their recent actions, Floss & Co has ALWAYS been 3 steps ahead. They have the newest equipment and make your visit as smooth and understanding as possible. I have had both dental and orthodontic work with the team, and I couldn’t be happier, or trust my teeth elsewhere. 🙂 Would recommend to anyone!

AS a person who has required several extensive dental procedures over the years, I feel very confident that Floss is truly the best. There is a somewhat spa atmosphere – very clean and relaxing. All of the staff are very polite and very helpful. Patient care is top-notch provided by world class dentists and orthodontists. There are flexible payment solutions if you need them

I switched to floss and co 6mnths back. Our initial visit was me and my sons who have autism. I was a bit concerned that they would not be able to handle my boys. Well i was very wrong. The kids loved the whole staff even prior to going back w the dentist. The whole group there makes you feel welcomed safe and like family. Highly recommend Floss & Co

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


I recently had an implant done here. The place is super clean, staff is friendly and welcoming. Dr. Izzy made me at ease by thoroughly explaining all aspects of my procedure to me. He also uses some high tech tools that help plan the procedure and make it pain free. I’m looking forward to been a regular patient of Floss and C

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


Hi everyone, if you have a dentist. CHANGE your dentist. If you don’t have a dentist, COME HERE NOW. Dr. Izzy is legit. He is the best dentist in the world. He is friendly, nice and Hot as Hell! They charge a little bit more than you would want to pay but the experience is phenomenal. I brought my entire family here, my ENTIRE family. They even let you stick around and chill after your appointment. You want a place to relax, come here.

Master Elyse K. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been using these guys for a few years now, and after my hugeeee fear of the dentist, I honestly couldn’t imagine going anywhere else!! I am such a big baby, I am afraid of a simple cavity, but Dr. Izzy always calms me down and takes time to put me at ease and always takes good care of me.  The new office is beautiful and truly gives you a great dental experience.  He even has a device to make getting shots in the mouth feel literally like nothing at all.  Melissa always takes good care of my cleanings as well, love these guys even the office staff is so nice and they always send you plenty of reminders for appointments!!  #lovemydentis

Wendy I. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I both call Floss & Co. our family dentist.  The staff, Dr Izzy and Dr Dabah are both so courteous and professional.  I have been going to Garfield Ridge Dentistry for close to 30 years.  I went there because I always received great dental care from Dr Swiatek, and Dr Izzy,  both professional and and painless dentists.  Dr Swiatek is retired now and the practice has relocated to a beautiful, state of the art facility with state of the art technology.  A few blocks down from the old location. Dr. Izzy and Dr Dabah still provide dental care that is painless and caring. They both take the time to describe, in depth, any procedure they perform.   Answering all questions.  The staff is amazing!  Very courteous, patient and kind.  Today I had a Dental implant procedure.  I was so scared and nervous about possible pain or discomfort.  But, Dr Izzy assured me that It would be painless.  And, he was absolutely right!!  I’m embarrassed that I was so afraid.  The procedure was quick, and painless.  Three hours after Ive left the office,  I feel great.  No pain whatsoever.  My husband had three cavities filled recently and the procedure was absolutely painless for him.  There is no hurry to start any work on you until the risk of pain is eliminated.  No pain at all.  We definitely recommend that you make  Floss & Co your family dentist too.

Dr. Izzy is very stingy with the pre-medication prior to cleanings. It’s like he’s getting a kickback from the pharmaceutical companies. I don’t get it; it’s not like opiates where you can get addicted. Trust your patients a little more. Also, he requires the money upfront. I think the place is overpriced but the service is phenomenal. Leads me to believe that he paid too much for his fancy office & wants to be a billionaire, as oppose to really trying to help people. He should do some comunity service outreach or give people the benefit of the doubt.

I was introduced to Floss & Co. about a year ago and am super thankful for the recommendation. My experiences have been great so far and I’ve transferred my entire family here. With three kids, we are also an ortho patient and feel that they are well organized, clean, respectful, and thorough. It’s refreshing to have such a great place for all of our dentistry needs so close to home. Thank you so much!!

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


I CAN NOT say enough praises about this Dentist and his staff. I’ve been a patient for a few years now, and each and every time I have visited the office, Dr. Izzy and his staff have been extremely professional friendly competent in every way. I have recently had a crown installed by Dr. Izzy and he and his assistant could not have been more considerate of my comfort and satisfaction. If your looking for a GREAT Dr. and staff, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. Izzy!!!

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


About a year and a half ago, my husband was in need of two dental implants. He was not the happiest with the dentist he had at the time, so he was nervous to have him perform such a big procedure. Through searching for a new dentist, he found Dr. Izzy at Garfield Ridge Dentistry and couldn’t be happier. Dr.Izzy was friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable from the beginning. He explained everything thoroughly to put my husband at ease. When it came to performing the actual procedure, everything went so smoothly and perfectly. Dr. Izzy was so thorough and matched my husband’s implants to the rest of his teeth so perfectly, you would never know that they were implants. My husband was so complimentary of Dr. Izzy and Garfield Ridge Dentistry that I left my long time dentist and started going to Garfield Ridge Dentistry with my husband. I quickly realized why my husband loved Garfield Ridge Dentistry so much. All of the staff is so friendly and welcoming. They talk to you more like friends than patients. Dr. Izzy is very gentle and thorough in his work. Everything about my experience and my husband’s with Garfield Ridge Dentistry and Dr. Izzy has been nothing but positive.

I highly recommend this office and their staff. Their receptionist are very polite and accommodating and their dentist go the extra step to make you comfortable. I had 2 teeth extracted by Dr. Izzy and his main concern the whole time was my comfort. In the past I’ve had a bad experience getting my other wisdom teeth removed and he understood that and was very attentive during the extraction. I’ve recommended this office to multiple people and will continue to do so! If there were more dentists like Dr. Izzy – going to the dentist wouldn’t be so bad!

Theresee DeCourcey (Source: Google)


I absolutely love this dental office! They make you so comfortable, they are always happy, smiling and very accommodating to your feelings and needs. Very clean and safe. When my husband and I walk in we feel like we are visiting family. I highly recommend Floss to everyone, especially if you have anxiety and fear of dentists, they take all that away! You will walk out feeling that you should have come sooner! They have a 5 star rating but I give them a 10!

LYDIA G. from Tinley Park, IL (Source: Yelp)


I and my parents have recently become patientsof Dr. Izzy.I became his patient after he took my father immediately as an emergency patient. My father who is a cancer patient, has had multiple rounds of chemo and radiation. One day he woke up with a swollen mouth and gums. He was showing signs of a mass infection in his mouth. Dr. Izzy took him immediatley after our first phone call and began treatment without ever asking for payment. When we asked about the fee he quickly eased our minds by offering a dental plan with his office that was sooooo reasonable and affordable. His main concern was my Dad’s health and not a fee. The Dr.’s gentlehand, manner and demeanor kept my father from fear and panic. Dad, who is 86 and verrrrry thrifty was calm and relaxed as Dr Izzy worked on clearing up the infectious tissue and deep decay. After seeing his caring handling of his patients, especially my Dad and his reasonable prices, I eagerly switched dentists and became his patient. I live in Tinley Park,Il, a 35 minute ride to Dr Izzy’s office. I believe that the trip is worth it. When I finally found a dentist who is not greedy and is gentle and painless, the car ride was irrelevant. His OFFICE STAFF is a reflextion of his compassion and conern and empathy for hispatients. From Jose at the front desk to his dental technicians you will see that the patients’ comfort and feelings is number one on the list. Customer care and satisfaction is what attracted me to become a patient and will keep me as one. We, as a family feel that this dental practice is perfect for us and this staff will be our life long friends! I reccommend this Dr Izzy and GARFIELD RIDGE DENTISTRY for any age level and thier procedural prices for any economic level. You can afford Dr. Izzy’s prices and will be blessed by his gentleness.
