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

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


PAIN FREE root canal. I discovered I needed a root canal during my 6 month dental cleaning this past week. Dr. Anast was able to do it the same day, making it convenient for me not to absolutely dread having to get a root canal and making another trip to come back in. I was very surprised that I did not experience ANY pain during the procedure. The worst part was just knowing what they were doing and having to hold my mouth open for an extended amount of time. I can honestly say I had minor discomfort maybe twice through out the entire thing, and I am so grateful for that! I have been coming here for about two years and I will continue to remain a patient here. Dr. Anast and his staff are great, knowledgeable, and take the time to explain and educate.

I absolutely love going here! They tell u charges upfront and what’s covered whats not. Doctor is attentive and everyone else is super nice and helpful. I got my molar extraction done here, the process was so simple and since then never had toothache. Doctor Paul is a great dentist and knows how to make his patients feel comfortable.

This morning I broke my tooth, I don’t have dental insurance and I was freaking out! Not to mention the pain I was in….. I called around to a couple offices and no one could take me today. Dr. Anast came in got me out of pain right away. I had no idea what I was going to do but I was offered many options and he walked me through the procedure. I’m traveling to go see my family and I’m still blown away that dr. Anast was able to get back to normal. He’s so good at his work and such a nice guy i’m so happy I found a place that I can trust and count on! 

Nea H. from West Town, Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I had the most painful toothache, my bottom jaw has been overcrowded because of my wisdom teeth for a while. My final wisdom tooth was coming out and my cheek and gums were swollen, I had soreness in my lymph node and even my ear was starting to hurt. I called all the dentist in my area and they all gave me the run around and only had space for me 3-4 weeks later. I honestly was losing hope and I thought I was going to die from an infection in my gums. Then I called Dr Paul Anast’s office. His staff was a God sent. They fit me in that day and when there was a new opening they asked if I would like to come earlier. His staff were so kind and understanding!! Seriously the best! Dr. Anast was so understanding of my situation and took the time to go over my options. No judgment and only kindness. He even fit in an extraction of 3 wisdom teeth that day. I was only there for antibiotics and I thought I would have to reschedule for an extraction later in the month. Didn’t feel a thing, super gentle and kept checking up on me. I couldn’t have asked for a better dentist. Definitely not going anywhere else for my dental needs. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!! They are all super professional and kind hearted! They will help you get what you need.

I have been going to Kimberly Smiles since 2014. The reason why I come back is because they are good at what they do, but more importantly the staff. The staff has always been great and I completely trust Dr. Paul with my teeth. This place is super clean and I feel comforable every time I have my visits.

Ashley K. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I LOVE Kimberly Smiles! You feel like you are at the spa, not the dentist. The staff is SO warm and friendly, and they always make sure you are 100% comfortable- whether you want to experience your session with a massage chair, laughing gas, cable TV/movies, etc. They also make your teeth look so beautiful! I had a tiny groove in my front tooth that I have had since I was born that I didn’t even realize could be “fixed”- Dr. Anast asked if I wanted it filled as I was filling a cavity. They go above and beyond. I can’t stop gushing to all my friends and family!

Jennifer M. from Roselle, IL (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient here for 3 years and would never go anywhere else. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I have my routine checkups here, teeth whitening and a had a crown put in and have been extremely satisfied with my services. Mary is always there explaining procedures throughly and making me feel relaxed and comfortable. She calls me the following day after a procedure just to see how I’m doing and to answer any questions I may have, she truly cares about the patients. I highly recommend this office for any dental need you may have.

Dr. Paul and all his staff are awesome. Mary and Wendy are friendly and helpful from the very beginning. His assistants/ dental hygienists Jenny and Elizabeth are great as well – always making sure I’m comfortable and know what is going on. I got a root canal retreat yesterday and a wisdom tooth pulled – the experience was as painless as possible (tooth extraction is never fun). I’ve seen Dr. Paul for cavity fillings and whitening in the past as well and always had a positive experience. Compared to some other dentists I’ve gone to in the past, this has definitely been the best experience- no matter what the procedure performed.

Dr. Anast is and his assistant are exceptional professionals. They are very pleasant and whenever there’s an issue, they really try to address my concerns or needs. Whenever I have questions about my ortho treatment, they answer my questions to the best of their knowledge. They really want to make sure I understand without using too technical jargon. With that being said, I recommend Kimberly Smiles as the place to go for any treatments! You won’t be disappointed!

Carlota P. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


To be honest, i’m not really a review person, but since I saw some bad comments about this office I wanted to share my experience. First off all what I like the most is that they work great with my dental insurance, also the staff is really friendly and the attention really deserves 5 stars, I can’t say anything bad from Dr. Anast, he is a great professional. I had a cavity and he showed me with an intraoral camera, so i’m pretty sure that he didn’t made that up HAHA. They offer me a whitenning (in office) and for a small amount I also got the “take home whitenning”, I would definitely go back with Dr. Anast because I want to get some veneers too, I’m living in Chicago right now and I’m glad that I have found a good dentist in town.

Darla P. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Where to start?! I always enjoy my visit to Kimberly smiles! I know,  i know,  how could i possibly enjoy a visit to the dentist but the staff & Dr are really great! They always make me feel comfortable and are very hospitable offering coffee or water when you come in, massage chairs, blankets & tvs overhead in every room!! Talk about smiles! Dr Paul does great work & takes pride in what he does, another reason why i love coming here!  So so happy i chose Kimberly smiles as my dental office!! Keep up the good work!

Jeff Carrier (Source: Google)


Everybody at Kimberly Smiles is great! Friendly and polite staff and a comfortable waiting room with plenty of direct sunlight. TVs hung over each dental chair help make the experience go a little bit better. “Dr. Paul” tolerates my nickname and treats my tendency to get a little jumpy with equal parts chit-chat and drugs. Both are appreciated. Recommended!

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


I’ve never felt more comfortable or at ease in a dentist’s office. Dr. Anast and his staff go above and beyond to ensure comfort and make you feel at ease. They are more than happy to explain and answer any questions regarding billing, treatment options, and go over x-rays. All assistants and staff have great attitudes and smiles. Like any kids, ours were hesitant and cautious on their first visit, but within moments the staff had eased any concerns. Dr. Anast even stayed late on a Monday night before his vacation once to take care of my wife’s dental needs. Do I recommend going here? We have for 10 years and will continue to do so. Great, great group of people.

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


Just moved to the area and was looking for a new dentist. I found this dentist from recommendations from very pleased friends and bonus they were also listed on my insurance website!! The whole experience was great. The girls at the front were friendly and funny and scheduled me an appointment quickly and also in the evening which i definately need, they are open til 8 two nights a week which is great.  Once I got to the office I was shown around and even given a nice thank you for choosing our office letter and gift!! The hygienist Jenny was super friendly and super gentle. I am a bit of a chicken so when the Doctor came in I was a little nervous but he was very relaxed and explained everything to me. He did find one cavity and I chose to have it done then, which was nice they didn’t make me have to come back for it. I told him I was nervous so they offered Nitrous and I had a massage chair and A tv above the chair. The filling was painless and quick and feels great. Everything about this office was really nice from the decor to the staff. I’m glad i found my new dentist!

I have been a patient of Dr Anast for over 8 years.  I was originally a patient at his Niles practice and followed him to his current wicker park location.  He is a wonderful dentist.  I find him to be an honest caring health professional.  At my very first visit, I was told that I have multiple cavities.  This was shocking to me and I was in disbelief.  I wasn’t in any discomfort and have been cavity free my entire adult life.  Dr Anast took the time to go over my x-rays and show me the location of the cavities.  He recommended that I remove two cavities on the same side and come back another visit for the cavities on the other side.  I was hesitant at first, but decided to follow his recommendation.  Dr Anast was gentle and made sure I was comfortable.  He also brought out a mirror to show me the actual cavity.  Yup, there it was.  The cavity was very deep.  If I waited any longer, I may have needed a root canal.  Dr Anast is an amazing dentist and I highly recommend him!!

Dr. Anast was very friendly and informative about what he was going to do and what I needed done. He didn’t mind that I asked questions because I was unsure what the procedures were. I will definitely be coming back here and recommending them to friends and family. It was such a nice environment, friendly, and clean.

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


I came in to Dr. Anast’s office after having the same dentist since childhood before and even a while after I moved to Chicago.  What a change!  Dr. Anast is very professional and you can tell he really enjoys his work and cares about doing the job right.  He clearly invests a lot in his business with flatscreens above the chairs, and he is able to show you your x-rays on the screen, too, to walk you through exactly what is going on.  I had a couple of cavities (don’t forget to floss, people!), and he made the process very easy and painless.  He was very thorough and I will definitely be going back regularly.  His staff is very friendly and helpful, as well.  Glad I found a new dentist I can rely on.

This office is great! Everyone here is friendly, accommodating, and professional. Dr. Anast is wonderful and makes even unpleasant procedures painless and easy! The office is modern and comfortable and has TVs in each room which really helps with long procedures. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for an amazing new dentist!

Akshay Gandotra (Source: Google)


I’ve been going to Dr. Anast for years now and the experience at his practice has always been exceptional. The staff are great and always willing to answer questions. He cares for his patients and takes the time explain the right plan of action. In addition, his treatment skills are forward looking and prioritize patient interest first. Overall, highly recommended!

Edward P. from Rogers Park, Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


The service I received from both the dentist, Paul Anast, D.D.S. and the dental hygienist, Nicole was really outstanding. I had a very bad infection in and immediately adjacent to one of my wisdom teeth and the tooth absolutely had to come out. They took care of my problem in a matter of minutes and I felt almost normal before I even left the office and completely normal by the time I exited. Furthermore, I bought the most important of the three prescriptions of tablets that you recommended for me two hours after I left and the medication is so effective that I’ve been feeling completely normal ever since. And last but not least, I’m of the opinion that your treatment was so effective that anybody in my situation who received the same remedies that you gave me has no reason to miss even an hour of work once the surgery has been completed. Thank you very much again

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


I love my smile again. If you have a substantial investment in your mouth and took it for granted, as I did, Paul Anast, D.D.S will work wonders for you, on your terms. He listens and uses up-to-date technology, in house, to make it happen quickly, painlessly and, yes, with a smile. I never found out who Kimberly is, but if Dr. Paul Anast is her dentist I know why she’s smiling.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Paul for 5 years. His staff is amazing. Mary and Wendy are always smiling and greet you with a warm welcome. The practice has a very comfortable and modern feel to it. Fresh towels and cold bottled water are plentiful and offered freely. The treatment rooms have massage chairs and cable TV with recently upgraded very large televisions. They also have the ability to display your X-rays and oral camera images on the television so you can see this information without moving from the chair. As a dentist, Dr. Paul is second to none. He loves his work and cares deeply for his patients, and it shows. He comes from the pain-free school of Dentistry and after having extensive surgical work done I experienced very little discomfort. Dr. Paul makes it a priority to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during any procedure. The office is equipped with the latest technology that allows them to build and place a crown in a single visit instead of waiting weeks and enduring multiple visits. Dr. Paul’s work is very solid; I haven’t experienced any failures and in fact he has repaired substandard work of other dentists. His prices are very competitive for the area and his staff works with your insurance to make sure you get the best value for your plan. All treatment options are clearly explained to you. As a cosmetic dentist, his work is impeccable. I have had two implants placed and being able to enjoy eating my favorite foods and not having gaps in my mouth has been absolutely worth it. I highly recommend Dr. Paul and his practice.

Nice people and they know their stuff. They always explain whats going on and answer my endless questions. They have a good atmosphere too which makes a big difference. Some have complained about the prices but I don’t find them to be any higher than my old dentist. Plus, I’m 48, I don’t want a cut-rate medical care. Take care of your teeth.

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


I walked in there with no money at all. Walked out with a root canal and deep cleaning done because they worked with me on a payment plan. I can’t tell you how many times I went to a dentist and had to leave without anything being done because I’m unable to afford  the costs and they couldn’t help me at all. Amazing experience. Every single person there was polite and really wanted to help relieve my pain. Can’t wait to go again.

Tim M. from Stone Park, IL (Source: Yelp)


I’m just gonna start by saying that I really do not like going to the dentist. I’ve always felt like you’re put in such a vulnerable and awkward position. However, this week I went to get an extraction done on a tooth that had been causing me so much discomfort and something that stood out to me was how attentive Dr. Paul was. Throughout the whole procedure he kept making sure I was doing ok and that I wasn’t feeling any pain. You can tell he genuinely cares about his patients. He was also very thorough with explaining the procedure. Very thankful for that

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


Had my first appointment at Kimberly Smiles last week and loved it! The staff was very friendly and easy to talk to. Loved the TV’s and massage chairs as you didn’t feel like you were at the dentist other than someone’s hands in your mouth 🙂 The office has parking (with a pass from the desk) right in front and easy to get to. Also did a teeth whitening which really cleaned up my smile. Overall highly recommend KS and Dr. Paul if you are looking for a dentist in Chicago and especially in the Bucktown/WP area.

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


I got my wisdom teeth pulled, it was fast, I didn’t get swollen which was a concern for me. I went to work the next day. That’s the kind of dentist I need. As dreadful as its been for me through the years finding a dentist that really knows what he’s doing I’m happy to say I finally found one. My cleanings are great never have to wait and everyone in the office is always in a good mood.

Harli Kral (Source: Google)


I had my wisdom teeth removed on my right side recently by Dr. Paul and he did an amazing job. My first wisdom teeth removal on my left side was done by another oral surgeon and it scared me so much that I thought I wouldn’t be able to ever get my right ones out but this doctor knew exactly how to handle me and his dental assistant made me feel super comfortable and I am glad I went here and would recommend him to anyone. Thanks to them I’m now wisdom teeth free and very glad I went here. Really nice office and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Dr. Paul Anast is definitely the best dentist I’ve ever been to. I’ve only had two appointments with him so far, one being a cleaning and the other getting my wisdom teeth out; and boy, did he make that a breeze. I was nervous as all heck to get this procedure done, but to start off, the receptionist (who’s always so kind and pleasant) made me feel so comfortable, telling me “it’ll be a breeze, he’s so good at extractions and he’ll make sure you don’t feel a thing, you got this”. Hearing that definitely boosted my confidence about getting this done. Then getting greeted by doctor Paul is always so nice, he talks as if he’s known me awhile, asking how my weekend was, or how work is, that makes things a little personable, which I find comfort in. He walked me through things and got the procedure started. Through the whole thing he made sure I didn’t feel a thing, numbing me some more if it was necessary, and kept asking if I was okay! The extraction only took about 30-40 minutes, impressive huh? Then afterwards, I wanted to see my wisdom teeth and he took his time to explain parts of the teeth and why my top ones were hard to take out, which was so cool! Let me not forget to mention the dental assistants, I was lucky enough to get two! One that was a trainee and one that was training her! They were both so wonderful and friendly! The one that was training, kept rubbing my arm to insure that I was okay and kept wiping my watering eyes, she definitely has compassion for the job! And I just want to tell the trainee that she’ll be a great dental assistant, don’t be so nervous you got this and know what you’re doing, thank you for sucking up my saliva making sure I didn’t choke! This whole team, from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave is great! And I’d choose Kimberly Smiles dental over and over again! And so should you!

I have been a longtime patient at Kimberly Smiles — even worked there for a little bit while I was finishing up college. After graduating and finding a job in the suburbs (Naperville/Warrenville), I still drive back into the city for my check-ups. As someone who has seen how the staff at Kimberly Smiles works — as a patient and “behind the scenes” — they are the only team I trust. I like how Dr. Anast will point out any cavities — even if they are still small. I would much rather fix a small cavity sooner rather than waiting until it’s so big it’s visible on an x-ray. Because of his early detection, I’m the only one in my family who has been able to avoid needing root canals. His lead assistant, Glenda, always helps me relax right before I get a shot and keeps me laughing through the visit. Jen is awesome and is always fun to talk to. My teeth feel really clean and smooth after leaving. And she always has desensitizing products available if my teeth are feeling sensitive. The rest of the staff — especially the girls up front — are friendly and a pleasure to see. I never have any billing or insurance issues. If my insurance is trying to not pay for a service, it’s nice that the staff will sit on the phone for hours dealing with an insurance representative to handle the issue so that I don’t have to.

Loose S. from Homer Glen, IL (Source: Yelp)


Clean and beautiful facility, friendly staff, and overall environment is top notch. I had my first Botox injection on 06/27/2012 at this facility, and then went with cheap Groupon’s after that thinking every place that provides Botox would provide the same result. This is not true. I’ve learned that the way you get injected coupled with the quality of Botox (not diluted) makes a huge difference with the result. I’ve never had a better Botox result than from here. I had forgotten the name of this place considering I had my first injection here almost 3 years ago. I actively searched out the forgotten name of this facility determined to go back here. Now that I have found it again, I will never go anywhere else. Paul Anast does an absolutely killer job with Botox. He is incredibly precise, and marks exactly where the Botox needs to go during the consultation. The consultation is included. He is very practiced with this per the injection pain level. You can barely even feel it. If you’re not interested in Botox, the precision and care Paul takes with Botox is indicative of how amazing he would be with dentistry. I regret already having an established dentist otherwise I would treat with this office (specifically with Paul Anast) in a heartbeat. If you ever want to say you enjoy going to your dentist, Kimberly Smiles is where you want to go.

I was scared walking in the dentist office last night, my wisdom had been bothering me for 8 months now and I couldn’t take the pain much longer. So after going to other places and not feeling comfortable with the other dentist, my friend recommended this office to me from the moment I walked in everyone was so friendly to me. When it finally came down to taking ALL 4 of them it took the dentist 5 MIN AND HE WAS DONEEEEEEEEE!!!! I’ve never in a million years would’ve thought that taking out my wisdom out would be this GREAT. Thank you so much Dr Paul as of right now I’m driving to work with NO PAIN and on top of that NO FAT cheeks it was like this never even happen. Thank you all so much again I really love this place and would recommend to all my family members and friends !!!

My face was busted up after a bicycle accident that resulted in some shattered front teeth. I discovered Kimberly Smiles after a google search of “Cosmetic Dentist accepting new patients.” I called many different offices that failed to compare to the empathetic service that I received from the wonderful people at Kimberly Smiles. They were able to see me hours after I called and offered to move appointments around in case I was unable to wait. I came into the office and filled out paperwork and burst into tears when the very friendly people at the front desk asked me what had happened. I cannot express the level of sympathy and helpfulness that I received from everyone at this office, but especially from Mary at the front desk and Dr. Paul Anast. Mary did everything in her power to make sure that I was able to choose the right financing option for my budget and was very patient with my indecisiveness while figuring it all out. She even had me laughing over her childhood animal stories through my busted up teeth. Dr. Paul stayed after work late to make sure that I walked out of the office with temporary teeth and all of my questions answered. He clearly takes great pride in his dentistry and assured me that I would achieve a boost of confidence once the official veneers are complete and my smile is symmetrical. I cannot thank the people of Kimberly smiles enough for all of their help during such a difficult time.

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


Dr. Anast is great.  He is very professional and caring. I have always dreaded going to the dentist, but won’t anymore ! The whole staff made me feel very comfortable. I got a cleaning done and a filling and it was painless and quick. The office is very clean and modern and all of the chairs have tvs to watch while you’re getting work done ! I will definitely be recommending this office to my friends and co-workers !
