Dr. Urkov recently became my dentist after my previous dentist retired. I was impressed immediately by his easy going demeanor which helped me to be perfectly relaxed during the dental procedure. With his use of state of the art equipment and his ability to explain in simple terminology what he was doing made me have the utmost confidence in his work.I am thrilled to have Dr. Urkov as my new dentist.

Dr. Urkov and Bonnie are the best! He’s conservative with his dental work and will work with you to preserve your teeth. I have needed several crowns in the past 4 years and every one was done by Dr. Urkov and they fit perfectly every time with very few adjustments needed. He’s also mastered giving a dental injection with minimal pain!

This was a great visit. Nice lake views from the dentist chair. Bonnie (Dr. Urkov’s receiptionist) went above and beyond to help me with my insurance and Dr. Urkov has a great ‘bedside’ manner. Everything was on-time and I felt that I could really trust Dr. Urkov as well. Thank you!

I can’t possibly say enough positive things about Dr. Urkov and his staff. I have been seeing the same dentist my entire life but recently moved to downtown Chicago and needed to find someone new. Dr. Urkov had outstanding reviews on ZocDoc and now I know why! From the moment I walked in the door, his staff greeted me with energy and helped review my insurance docs to make sure I was within network for coverage. Dr. Urkov was incredibly thorough in his exam/cleaning and explained everything to me each step of the way. He did xrays and pulled the images up on the screen to explain why my teeth looked healthy and what red flags would be present if I had any issues. I was comfortable the entire time and I’m very happy to say I’ve found my new regular dentist. Thank you Dr. Urkov!

I had the best dental experience ever with Dr. Urkov! He is so professional, kind, and knowledgeable. I arrived to my appointment 15 minutes early and was examined and cleaned immediately. Dr. Urkov explained everything before touching my mouth and made me feel calm. Bonnie is professional and kind as well! If you are looking for a new dentist, Dr. Urkov is the way to go!

Just all around great appointment with Dr. Urkov and Bonnie. Bonnie was very helpful in sorting through my insurance in advance. When I got to the office, I was seen right away, and Dr. Urkov did the cleaning himself. I expressed some concerns I had, these were addressed clearly and effectively. And it’s not the primary reason I would have picked the office, but the office views over the lake are great. Overall just a very positive dental experience.

Such a great person and a great dentist! I knew going in that I had a lot to get fixed, even so, I always felt confident that he will help me overcome my dental problems since I started visiting his office few months ago. I would highly suggest him to anyone who needs their teeth checked, he is great! 🙂

Dr. Urkov’s office was a wonderful experience. From the moment you come in the door, you feel like your are in a familiar place. His Office Manager, Bonny, is an absolute delight and immediately brings joy into the room. Dr. Urkov himself was a fantastic dentist. He performed the entire exam and cleaning himself, explaining what he was looking for and looking at and discussing my current health habits. Highly recommend!

Andrea B (Source: Zocdoc)


He is a wonderful dentist whose work is really an art form. He gives special care to making sure you are comfortable at all times and you know exactly what work is going to take place during your appointment. He is the best! And no, I am not related to him.

Marc M (Source: Zocdoc)


I would definitely recommend to others; and I will return. There was absolutely no wait time to see him from my appointment time. Additionally, his office isn’t like other high volume dentist’s office were you see the Dentist for maybe 5 min. He takes care of you during the entire appointment. He is very personable and friendly. His office assistant is also amazing as well.

Great dentist office. The office manager, Bonnie, is a great help dealing with the difficult insurance world. Dr. Urkov is patient, gives thorough explanations of what he’s doing and what he recommends. He is always positive and encouraging but gives specific helpful feedback. I have a small mouth and really don’t like going to the dentist. Ok. who does? But Dr. Urkov really works hard to make it as painless and pleasant as possible while giving you the care you need. Oh, yes, and there’s a killer view from the dentist’s chair.

If you want the most meticulous and incredibly knowledgeable dentist with an amazing calm, informational, and caring dentist then you need to see Dr. Urkov. I had broken my tooth and I had never met him before. He came highly recommended and I called. The office was closed for Veterans Day, but he opened it for me to help me! He is a dream!

Jeanette G (Source: Zocdoc)


This is the best dental experience I’ve ever had! Bonnie was extremely helpful and friendly. Dr. Urkov was excellent and clearly passionate about what he does. The best part is that he thoroughly explains everything before he does it so there are no surprises. A thoroughly professional and seemless experience. I will recommend this office to everyone I know. Thank you!

Blair N. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


Not sure why Yelp says this office is closed, but it’s not. I found this dentist through zocdoc.com so I could find something close to where I work. I had not seen a dentist in about 5-6 years and had no major problems. Just never found a dentist once I moved to Chicago. This guy is great! He prides himself on being a “pain-free dentist”, and he definitely is. Had my very first cavity and having it filled was a breeze. He explains everything he is doing, and is very vocal/specific about what he needs you. Much better than my last dentist who never said much at all. He makes you very comfortable and is upbeat. His receptionist is super friendly, too. No complaints at all! I have a feeling he’ll be my dentist for a while.

I’ve gone to a children’s dentistry near my parents’ house all my life until I was told that it was time for me to find an adult dentist. I lived in Lakeview last year, so I found a dentistry (Homerun Dental) on Yelp and decided to give it a try because of the great reviews. Terrible mistake…that dentist almost made me get two healthy teeth drilled for NO reason and I would’ve had to pay out of pocket costs that my insurance didn’t cover. Fast forward to 6 months ago when I moved to South Loop and used Zocdoc to find a dentist near me. After meticulous research, I found Dr. Urkov’s office and decided to give him a try. He is the absolute sweetest dentist who says thank you after everything you do. His staff (Bonnie) is so sweet as well. He is also extremely transparent and knowledgeable, explaining everything he does to your teeth before actually doing them. My previous dentists always looked at my teeth for a few minutes before having their hygienists do most of the work, but Dr. Urkov does everything himself which I really appreciate. I HIGHLY recommend him if you’re looking for a new dentist in or near the Loop (seriously just check out Zocdoc reviews if you don’t believe me).

Dr. Urkov is the best dentist I’ve ever been to and that’s not just my opinion. When my daughter lived in Chicago, she was Dr. Urkov’s patient. To this day, she also maintains that he’s the best dentist she’s ever been too. He’s an expert with a very caring and gentle approach. He has all the tech a dentist could need. And the specialists he refers to are equally expert. Being his patient is like being in a super-exclusive club of dental experts.

Dr. Urkov is the absolute best! I have been seeing the same dentist for my entire life until I recently moved to downtown Chicago and needed to find a new dentist. He was incredibly thorough and explained what he was doing each step of the way. He showed me not only why my teeth looked healthy but what signs would be present if they were unhealthy. I will be going back to see him very soon for a consultation on a cosmetic procedure.

Bill L. from Oak Bluffs, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Urkov for many years and highly recommend him as a medical professional with a high level of expertise and a caring and committed attitude toward his patients. He clearly explains any needed or elective procedures and has an unwavering commitment to excellence. During the time I’ve known Dr. Urkov, he has attended many educational seminars in order to continue to learn and enhance his dental care skills. – Bill L.

From the moment I phoned Bonny the very competent and friendly receptionist I knew I will be in good hands. Dr Urkov is a wonderful, kind, considerate and highly professional doctor. I live in Oakpark and it is soo worth driving there to get the best attention possible. Will recommend to all my friends!

Sarah H (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Urkov and his team were absolutely wonderful. It had been a very long time since I had been to a dentist and Dr. Urkov made me feel very comfortable and not the slightest bit embarrassed. He did a very thorough cleaning with x-rays, and did an exceptional job explaining what he was doing, the results of my exam, and my x-rays. I really appreciate Dr. Urkov taking the time to educate me, answering my questions, and even getting to know me– this can be rare! I highly recommend Dr. Urkov and his team and will certainly be going back for my 6 month cleaning.

Kim H (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Urkov and his staff are extremely professional and knowledgeable. He takes his time with the examination and is always happy to answer any of my questions. The office is in a convenient location so you can easily make a morning or lunch-time appointment if you work in the Loop or surrounding area.

No string of superlatives can describe how fantastically fortunate I am to have Dr. Urkov and his right hand woman, Bonnie, as my dental caretakers!! It took me years to get up the courage to go see a dentist. Dr. Urkov understood from the get-go: his warmth, humor, and exceptional professionality have won me over–and now I actually look forward to my dental appointments!! Most highly recommended, especially for “dentist-phobics” (as once I was…:)

Caitlyn I (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Urkov is the best dentist I have seen to date. I told him I had anxiety going to the dentist and he made me feel very comfortable by making sure to explain every procedure ahead of time and describing exactly what he was looking for. He even showed me my x-rays and pointed out any issues in detail and was very sensitive to whether or not I was in pain. I actually arrived half an hour early and he was able to see me almost right away. Can’t beat the view of the lake either! I will definitely be back and recommend him to my friends.

Great experience for being a new patient! I’ve previously only had one specific dentist I went to but I moved. I was very nervous but Dr. Urkov made me feel very comfortable. I was late and he took it very graciously! He is friendly and has excellent bedside manner. Receptionist Bonnie was lovely and friendly. Overall amazing experience. Can’t wait to go back!
