Emma Z. from Skokie, IL (Source: Yelp)


As a patient of this practice, I have always had such lovely and comfortable time dealing with my dental needs. The care I got was extremely thorough, gentle, and professional (which is quite hard to find in dental offices). The doctor and all the other employees are super friendly and accommodating. Amazing experience and would highly recommend!

I’ve been going to Glenlake Dental for years. All of the staff is super helpful and willing to do what they can to make the experience great. Dr. Lim is wonderful and such a great dentist. Katie Miller has been the dental hygienist I’ve seen a number of times and she is phenomenal. She gave me more information and patient education during my last dental cleaning than I have had collectively from anyone else. I highly recommend her, Dr. Lim and this practice. Thank you guys for everything : )

Eric Lim, DDS, is well educated, attention to detail, professional, cares for patient’s needs, concerns & provides solutions. Dr Eric Lim is top notch. I would not trade him for any other dentist. He is the best in every professional aspect. His dental hygienists have also been the best. Thank you for your services. Hope to see you for a long time.

Diana V. from Palatine, IL (Source: Yelp)


I’m so glad I found this dental office. It’s far from my house, but came highly recommended. It’s worth the drive for me. I love the front staff (which can make or break a doctor experience for me). When I was getting my XRays, I mentioned to the tech that I don’t like getting xrays in my mouth done. She did everything she could to make it painless and fast. She actually sprinted to me after each xray. Wonderful place and I highly recommend!

Cheryl Bizzell (Source: Google)


I’m a new patient to Glenlake Dental but will definitely make Dr Lim and his staff my place to go. The technician was friendly, careful while performing the X-rays, and very efficient. Dr. Lim explained what he found in a manner I could understand and alleviated my concerns about two issues. Although he could have recommended further treatment which would have been quite expensive, he assured me that such treatment isn’t necessary now. I respect his honesty and enjoyed my visit.

Sunshine R. from Arlington Heights, IL (Source: Yelp)


Great place, pleasant staff. Very knowledgeable doctors. I’ve switched to Glenlake from my previous dental office 2 yrs ago and am very happy I did. Dr. Lim is a wonderful doctor. He did my crown and when it came back from the lab, he sent it back because he thought that the color could have been matched better to the rest of the teeth (I thought it was pretty close to begin with)! Most of the other doctors that did my crowns would just use it as it came in as long as it fit… I also liked Dr. Nouneh, periodontist. Very thorough, knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. One more good thing I like about the office: I never (so far) had to wait for longer than 10-15 min! That is a huge deal for me. All in all, my son is now a patient at GLD as well as my mother.

Ronald M. from Morton Grove, IL (Source: Yelp)


This spring, I had some dental work done at GDC, and am very pleased with the results. The staff is really friendly, and they made my stay as easy and relaxed as possible. The Dr. and assistant worked well together, and made sure many times that I was comfortable. I liked the clean, fresh look of the office… I know that’s not the main reason to get your teeth taken care of, but the whole environment does make a big difference. I give GDC a very high recommendation

I have been a patient of Glenlake Dental for 20 years and have been treated as well as conceivably possible. All this from the surgical procedures, filling replacement and prophylaxis to the natural friendliness of everyone who works there, in my 68 years I’ve never been to a more competent and comfortable dentistry operation. This from someone with “White Coat Fever” is high praise indeed.

What a delightful experience to meet the dedicated team at Glenlake Dental Care in Glenview, IL. Dr. Eric Lim is a honest, straightforward professional. I appreciate how he takes time to answer all my questions. Dr. Lim has mastered repair and bonding of my aging teeth. Of course, he couldn’t perfect his work, without the awesome assistance of Vonya. Dr. Lim and Vonya work incredibly harmonious together! Katie, is my dental hygienist. She is lively, enthusiastic and enjoys getting to know you. She will zero in on what areas you can better brush, and will educate you for at home care. A day at Glenlake is not complete unless you’ve met Tamara, who helps with appointments, dental treatment plans and financing. Tamara’s Loveliness is like a fresh bouget of flowers! I am humbled and grateful to be Glenlake Dental Care’s patient.

Lee-Ann C. from Libertyville, IL (Source: Yelp)


I am new in town and needed a new dentist and Zocdoc rates Dr Lim very highly. Ignore the location, it’s in a strip mall and is very unassuming but inside are friendly reception and admin ladies and Dr Lim himself is knowledgeable and straight forward. I was quickly in and out and will be back tomorrow for a cleaning. Will update my review then . As far as it stands I have no hesitation in recommending this dentist as he seems to genuinely care about his patients. Thank you Dr Lim

Lilia P. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I consider myself fortunate that I found Glenlake Dental many years ago. I was always concerned about retaining healthy teeth, but all dentists I saw were just “kicking the can down the road” by never signalizing the growing problems. This is what originally appealed to me in this center – doctors, hygienists and administrators were genuinely concerned about their patients’ dental health, and were willing to address tough issues, even under the threat of losing some prospective patients.  As a result, my whole family – children and adults, have been going to the Glenlake Dental center for 12 years. During this time, Dr. Lim worked on my husband’s implants, my Invisiline treatment, and multiple big and small dental issues.  The staff is always respectful and attentive. Marina is my choice for hygienist. I appreciate her passion and professionalism, she truly cares for her patients’ dental health, and addresses smaller issues before they have a chance to become larger problems.  Really great place, I am glad to recommend it to everyone!

Dr. Lim is an EXCELLENT dentist. He is very thorough and meticulous. He replaced a faulty filling from my previous dentist, and replaced two other fillings I had for over 30 years! Fast forward four years and all of his work is in tact, problem free. While the office doesn’t have some of the “bells and whistles” of my former dentist (TVs, headsets, etc.); the workmanship and honesty of the practice makes it a no brainer. In addition, the hygienists are amazing. I never knew cleanings could be pain free. I know this sounds like I’ma paid spokesperson, but this has been my actual experience.

Allie W. from Glenview, IL (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to Glenlake Dental since I was very young and I have nothing but great things to say about their office. From the dentists to the hygienists to the office staff, everything about Glenlake Dental is 5 stars. I have very sensitive teeth, and the hygienists are very gentle and always make sure I am comfortable during my teeth cleaning. Dr. Lim is amazing as well. He is very personable and a great dentist. Renata at the front desk is so nice and is also very helpful with anything financial related. I would recommend this dentist office to everyone, and I would never go anywhere else!

Sean W. from Glenview, IL (Source: Yelp)


The doctors are very nice and my family comes here for all our dentistry needs. The staff has always been friendly and professional.  I’m currently seeing Dr. Lim for invisiline and am quite happy with the progress. Overall I am quite satisfied with the service and would recommend them to anyone in the area looking for a new dentist.

Leo T. from Wheeling, IL (Source: Yelp)


Everyone at the office was extremely professional and attentive from the receptionist to the doctor. The staff made me feel comfortable and at ease. The doctor answered all of my questions and made the process very simple and easy to understand. I recommend this office to anyone looking for good quality dental facility.

Amanda C. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Before moving to San Diego this was my dentist. They always accommodated my schedule and had me in and out. No long waits in the waiting room while your in your head trying to prepare for the pain of the dental visit your going to endure. Thankfully all the hygienists and the doctor are so gentle. I’m not really afraid of the dentist its just usually unpleasant, but the staff here genuinely makes you feel comfortable. Thanks to everyone here, smiling at you all, all the way from sunny San Diego 🙂

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


Although I feel so nervous with seeing a dentist, I have to say Glenlake Dental is a great and warm place to go. Appointment is easy to schedule. Doctor Sullivan is very detail oriented and kind. All the staff treat you nicely. My hygienist Lauren is so sweet to stop by to greet every time. Great experiences all the time.

From the very first phone call I made to my most recent visit just last night my experience has been wonderful. My dental care and experience at glenlake Dental has been ” THE BEST”. I have had much dental care throughout my life time. Glenlake Dental ranks number one from all of my previous dental experiences. Having specialist is a huge advantage for me. Their staff is truly great from specialists, hygienist and assistants and the office workers. Dr. Lim has transformed my smile and I am more confident. The change in the appearance of my teeth and smile have been having a great impact in my life. I can not thank glenlake Dental care enough for the fine job and great experience.

August 2020. Three visits. New patient. Senior citizen (bioscience researcher – retd.). Over one year since last dental visit due to move from Atlanta to North Shore Chicago area/lockdown. (Recently lost a filling.) Detailed evaluation/assessment of dentures, gums and teeth (crown and bridge) presented professionally and candidly. Reassuring of status and and needs with emphasis on retaining and maintaining remaining teeth. No “up-sell.” Second visit – four fillings painlessly an comfortably accomplished by Dr Lim with excellent assistant. Third visit: Exceptional cleaning by Katie, with helpful suggestions for in-home cleaning and rinsing with non-alcoholic anti-cavity mouthwash to nurture gums. Thankful to find a trustworthy affordable practice and practitioners. No waiting, efficient methods, great support staff. Adhering to best practices for dental clinics during Covid-19.

Kristy M. from Wheeling, IL (Source: Yelp)


I have to say, I’m terrified of dentists. I went to Dr. Lim with fear, not only because he’s a dentist, but because I knew there was something wrong with a few of my teeth. I can’t emphasize how great my visit was. The staff treated me like family, and Dr. Lim made sure I understood everything that I needed, every detail. I have never felt this way with a dentist before. I would recommend this practice to anyone who needs a dentist, because for the first time in my life, I’m not afraid anymore. My teeth were fixed and THERE WAS NO PAIN! I wish I had found him 10 years ago!

Shelley M. from Glenview, IL (Source: Yelp)


Glenlake Dental Care is a wonderful dental practice. Everyone that I’ve encountered at Glenlake has been so professional and accommodating. I have a large family and they are always so helpful in fitting in all the appointments around the same time. I feel that we are getting a very thorough check up/service. I DON’T ever feel that they are trying to make up dental issues just to bring in money and I never feel pressured into any services that might be recommended. There was a time my insurance changed and we had to switch dentists for a year and I was so sad to leave the practice and disappointed with another dentist we had to use. We were able to switch back to Glenlake and I’m so ecstatic that we are back with this dental practice. I highly recommend Glenlake Dental Care!

Cathy H. from Prospect Heights, IL (Source: Yelp)


I have seen Dr. Lim for several years now and been a patient of Glenlake Dental for 20 years.  They have all the necessary specialists as well as general dentistry.  Dr. Lim is very patient and answers all questions along with being concerned about my #1 fear, a painful experience.  I have NEVER had a bad experience here and it’s all been painfree while procedures are being done.

Courtney Curtis (Source: Google)


Went in as a new patient to get a composite filling replaced (it had popped off). Was able to get an appointment the next day, pre-fill registration forms before arriving, was greeted and brought in promptly, and was in and out in 30 minutes with them taking care of all insurance related things. You can also book online through their site apparently, which appeals to me. Dr Lim and his staff were nice, personable, and efficient. Will be recommending to my husband that he move to them as well.

I give this place high ratings for Covid 19 cleaningness and prevention. My family and I switched to this practice more than two years ago. Having various services such as dental cleaning and occasional cavity work we never had an issue with any of their services. Since the beginning of pandemic I felt apprehensive about going to the dentist. Having an emergency rooth canal, I had to go here for the crown work. Though I was worried about going in, after seeing their prevention protocols, I felt v comfortable. They follow CDC reccomandations and go beyond with preventive measures. If you are like me, having Covid 19 anxiety but need a dentist, this is the place to go.

I’ve been going to Glenlake Dental since 2000, so this review is looong overdue. The doctors here are highly skilled and caring. I’m very afraid of needles and probably one of the worst patients a Dr. can encounter. Yet, Dr. Lim has the patience of a saint. I hardly feel the shot, as he does it very, very slow and takes a lot of time to numb me. I didn’t commit to the full recommended treatment plan they gave me, but I do it at my own pace. I feel more comfortable this way. I read other patients’ reviews here and it’s surprising to me. No one ever pressured me to get work done. Yes, they insist on the BEST possible options for you but never coerced me. As far as the quality of their work, there are not many that come close! I moved to New York a few years back and hesitantly went to 5 different dentists in NY. I regretted each and every visit! The fillings weren’t polished enough, the floss gets ripped by jagged edges of the fillings, some even discolored after just 2 months, some of the equipment looked dirty etc. For example, the light handles that NY Dr. was pulling toward my mouth with the glove that was going into my mouth, were covered by blue sticky plastic that wasn’t replaced after each patient! Disgusting! I guess am spoiled by Glenlake’s Dental sterilizing procedures… I’ve see the assistants here clean a room after me and every inch was wiped down, including UNDER those disposable lamp handle covers. So when I see cheaper prices at another practice, I now know where they are cutting corners – my safety and quality of the material! It costs money to have the best materials and high sterilizing standards. My decision is to come for my dental work here, whenever I visit my friends and family in Chicago.

Carly P. from Highland Park, IL (Source: Yelp)


I have tried many other dental practices, and after finding Glenlake Dental, my search has ended! Everyone here is so nice and truly helpful. They have give out of their way with last minute emergency appointments, and always give me options for my next steps. I would highly recommend this practice!

Aleksandra Veselovsky (Source: Google)


Great staff and doctors. I am not a fan of dentist and avoided them for many years before coming to Glenlake Dental, but I actually do not mind dental appointments anymore because of how skilled the doctors and dental hygienist are. I have been going to Glenlake Dental for almost 10 years and recommend it to all my friends.

Torrey Marie (Source: Google)


Always have a good expenerice at Glenlake Dental, never have a promblem getting an appointment. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. My brother recommended Glenlake to me and he swears by them. I don’t have dental Insurance and they are the most reasonable by far. Highly recommend Glenlake Dental!

Natalie F. from Northbrook, IL (Source: Yelp)


” Recently I visited this office for the first time and was very impressed with the way they took care of me. The doctor took his time to listen to me and the way he checked my mouth I have never experienced such thorough exam. He was very pleasant, seemed very knowledgeable and professional. His assistant was checking up on how I was doing throughout the exam, since she noticed I was a bit nervous. and let me tell you I hate going to a dentist and i know I’m not the only one. I was glad to find out I only had one cavity, which they took care of at the same visit, so i didn’t need to come back. I was relieved to hear that everything else was fine, no gum problem. The staff was very attentive. This experience made it easy for me to gladly agree to schedule my 6 months check up with them.”

Era R. from Buffalo Grove, IL (Source: Yelp)


Very pleased with my first visit.  Office is very clean and staff is very professional and attentive.   The dentist took his time to listen to my concerns and discuss various treatment options.  He was very knowledgeable and asked about my past dental work experiences and pain/sensitivity threshold.  The dental assistant was very courteous and gentle.  She explained exactly what she was doing and made sure that I was comfortable.  Visit was fast and efficient, I didn’t wait a long time in the waiting room or in the patient chair.  Office is easy to find and there’s plenty of parking.

Great experience all around. Checkin was easy. He saw me within 10 minutes of my appointment time, which for me is spot on. I had a loose filling. He replaced it in less than half an hour. Pay,Eng was quick and prices reasonable (with insurance). He has a great manner, carefully explaining what was happening. His staff is also great,

Aaron V. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Lim is friendly and thorough. He is great at explaining problems and necessary procedures. The staff is very nice. They did not accept my insurance but they informed me of that ahead of time and worked with me to make payments almost painless for the first visit. I highly recommend this dental office!

Steven P. from Racine, WI (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Lim’s for close to ten years now. I can honestly and wholeheartedly recommend Glenlake Dental Care for your dental care. I am an adult and required metal braces for close to three years. While this is somewhat “traumatic” as an adult, Dr. Lim did a great job individually, and in consultation to make sure my teeth were saved and are now in great shape. Unlike other postings, I have never experienced any “scam” tactics. I fully understand the difficulty in getting insurance companies to pay anything. I think Renata, Tanya and the rest of the staff navigate those difficult waters very well. It is important in this day and age that the patient also gets involved in making sure insurance companies pay what they should and in a timely fashion. To expect to just leave it to others is, in my humble opinion a fool’s errand. Again, I cannot speak for anyone else, but I have had nothing but a positive experience for close to a decade with G.D.C. From Anna to Marina to Dr. Lim and all the other folks I mentioned, I am completely pleased with the service and attention I receive on each visit.
