I’m such a baby when it comes to going to the dentist. I always get such anxiety but the Rooted Dental office experience was great. Each step was explained to me fully so I knew what was going on and future steps were easily planned out all in one cleaning. Insurance was setup and detailed out so the second the appointment was over I was on my way without worrying about payment. I’ve tested a few dentists in a lakeview and this is by far the best experience I’ve had.

Rooted Dental care is a premiere dentist office that is by far the best in Chicago. Dr. Patel and the staff operate with professionalism, and are very welcoming. I have had some bad experiences with dentists in the past. Dr. Patel has calmed all my anxieties and restored my confidence. I am no longer anxious or fearful of the dentist or procedures I may need. Dr. Patel takes her time to explain exactly what services and options are available for your dental needs. There are no surprises. It is apparent that the hygienists care about not just your dental care, but are interested in you as a person. The receptionist and front desk are also very pleasant. I highly recommend Rooted Dental Care. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent care. I’ve never liked the Dentist Office and avoided it for years. Rooted made my experiences super comfortable and pain free. All the Doctors and technicians were incredibly kind and accommodating. I watched some Netflix/Hulu during and it completely distracted me from my root canal. They are truly the best.

I love Rooted Dental Care and highly recommend this place if you live in Lincoln Park. I still go here even after moving from LP… I would rather go here than the multiple dentists that are much closer due to how awesome Dr Patel is. I started seeing Dr. Patel after she took over the location from the former dentist. I love all of the staff, the office is super cute and welcoming. She has an awesome practice overall. I have always been very self conscious of my smile and going to the dentist used to be one of my least favorite activities. Since seeing Dr. Patel, I love my smile! She did some major work on my teeth since I’ve started seeing her and couldn’t be happier with the results. Go here!

Came here after a horrible experience with Dentologie in South loop where I was quoted over $5,000 for very invasive treatments I knew I didn’t need. I got a second opinion at Rooted and surprise-surprise, other than deep cleaning I needed nothing else! The Rooted staff was honest, professional, transparent and very friendly. Highly recommended!

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


Dr. Petal is great, I got her number from my friend that used her in the past and liked her a lot. The staff is awesome, they are so friendly and professional. I couldn’t be more happier. They are so good with the appointments, they got me in within 15 minutes (I used to wait at least 40 minutes in my previous place) I would recommend this place

After years of being insecure about the coloring of my smile, I decided to set up an appointment for a whitening treatment and I am so glad I did! The Rooted team made everything a breeze right from the moment I booked over the phone. The staff at the front desk was very amiable and quick to check me in. Dr. Patel was very attentive and reassuring as she explained some possible factors that contributed to the discoloration of my smile and offered solutions for my concerns. I was able to see major improvement after just one session. I will definitely be back!

Had my first visit today. Dr. Patel, Sam and team were incredibly welcoming and knowledgable. I LOVED the clean, modern feel of the office and was impressed with the various cameras they used to complement x-rays in taking a baseline measure of my current dental health that we can compare against going forward. Looking forward to returning tomorrow for a cleaning and a laser gum treatment!

I have honestly never had such a pleasant experience with a dentist. I enjoy going in to Rooted and I completely trust that Dr.Patel and her team are going to keep me comfortable and send me home with impeccable work done. My smile has never looked better! I’m so pleased and I tell everyone who will listen about Rooted.

Dr. Patel and her staff are lovely! Very professional, thorough, and walked me through every step of my appointment. They really took what I had to say into consideration and made sure I understood the plan of care for that day as well as upcoming necessary procedures. Her office and technology is modern and the patient is made aware of any analysis as the appointment goes along. Parking was easy and there was practically no wait once I arrived. I’m very happy to have found such a reliable dentist in the city!

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


I followed Dr. Patel from her previous office to her new office, Rooted, because you cannot find a more caring, committed dentist. I had a dental abscess when I was 9 months pregnant and she went out of her way to fit me into the schedule and ensure treatment was expedited before I delivered. She and her team are careful to make the experience of undergoing a dental procedure as comfortable as possible, and I didn’t feel any pain at all during my root canal or crown. She does a great job educating patients about the risks and benefits of treatment, reviewing imaging studies, and answering all of your questions. She also did a great job with my invisalign. Highly recommend this practice.

Dr. Patel is so easy to talk to and works so efficiently. Her office is modern and inviting. She and her office send a reasonable number of reminder texts. They go over the treatment plan with you prior to treatment. So, there are no surprise charges. I’ve found a new dental

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


The dentist is the one health professional that I faithfully see, but unfortunately I had a lot of cavities in my youth, and they are in various phases of having been replaced or needing replacement. When my previous dentist stopped taking my insurance, I found Dr. Patel at her previous office. When she opened her new practice, I followed her here. She’s a fantastic dentist, and she runs a great practice. The office is brand new – no shabby furniture or equipment that looks like it’s 50 years old. The hygienists are friendly but don’t try to talk to you the whole time while your mouth is open, and they explain procedures thoroughly and ask if you have any questions. In addition to x-rays, they take pictures of your teeth – another tool for Dr. Patel to monitor your teeth and spot any troubling trends. Dr. Patel explains what she’s looking for in her exam, shows you the x-rays and pictures and points out any trouble spots, and gives you a game plan, like “let’s watch this cavity – it probably needs to be replaced soon, but not quite yet.” When I had a filling replaced, it was easy and painless, and her office followed up subsequently and easily fit me in to adjust the filling because my bite felt a little off. I like that when they offer optional procedures that aren’t covered by my insurance, they always explain why they recommend the procedure, how much it costs, and emphasize that it is optional. I also love that they have text reminders and my appointments are always on time. Great experience every time!

Great care from start to finish! Everyone from the office staff to Dr. Patel was incredibly thorough in explaining procedures, insurance specifics, and next steps. It was my first visit to a dentist in 4 years, and they were sure to cover all the bases without it feeling rushed. Looking forward to going back.

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Patel and the other ladies in this office that I’ve worked with! They all make me feel welcome and at ease during my appointments. The office has all the latest technology. Now, during covid times, they’ve taken extra precautions and I always feel safe. I always walk out of my appointment smiling and looking forward to my next cleaning!

Dr. Patel and her team are the best! I’m new to her practice but they are very welcoming and friendly, most importantly they made me feel at ease, which sometimes can be difficult, a, because it was a new place, and b, dental offices always give me anxiety period, but not hers; her office space is very “Zen” and very clean which is critical these days. Dr Patel and her staff are definitely on top of their game and I now look forward my visits! Thank you Rooted Dental!

Dr. Patel and her team take a lot of the pain and discomfort out of going to the dentist. They were extremely accommodating when it came to my overall comfort — I had the option to watch Netflix or listen to music during my appointment, they carefully adjusted the chair to my liking and provided dark glasses to minimize the brightness of the overhead lighting. During my cleaning and filling appointments, each team member explained every part of the process in detail, which made me feel much more comfortable throughout each procedure. Dr. Patel is also just an extremely pleasant person — she’s so friendly and made me feel very relaxed even when getting an injection. She also answered all of my questions thoroughly. Perhaps most importantly, the quality of their work is amazing. My mouth feels so clean and healthy since my first appointment. I can’t recommend this office highly enough!

I’m so grateful I came across Rooted Dental! If you’re looking for a change or a new local dentist, you found the right place. The office is comfortable and modern and the staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. They walk you through the processes and prices for your appointment making each step of the way easy to understand. My cleaning was terrific. All of the tools and technology are modern which made uncomfortable processes like pictures and x-rays much more comfortable and easy. I even watched a cooking show during the appointment. I also recently had cavities filled and it went great. The staff is so attentive and checks in with you frequently. They explain everything up front so you always know what’s coming next. I’m not one to typically submit reviews, but Rooted Dental and Dr. Nisha truly do everything to make your appointments as simple and as comfortable as possible. I’m even looking forward to my next cleaning!

Dr. Patel and her team are incredible!! I have not had great dental experiences in the past, but each visit to Rooted has been as enjoyable as one could ask for from a trip to the dentist. Everything is thoroughly explained by the hygienists, as well as Dr. Patel. Her passion for dentistry is evidenced in the teaching and coaching she takes the time to do with her team, pulling them in to see techniques and procedures that they don’t have much experience in. This really stuck out to me because I realized it’s not something you see very often anymore, at least not being done voluntarily and sincerely. It feels great finally having a dentist that I trust. Thank you.

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


This is a very good dental practice. Was looking for new Dentist in LP. Easy appointment and confirmation. Very efficient team. Modern clean office and state of the art technology – latest innovation techniques. Nice reception person, great professional hygienist (Erica) and caring Dentist Dr Patel. Both happy to walk you through procedures. Glad I made the move to Rooted.

Recently remodeled and the latest technology! The dentist is fabulous and makes her patients feel completely comfortable. Noise cancelling headphones!! Highly recommend. On the corner of Clark and Fullerton!

Brendan R. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Patel and her staff were very attentive to my questions regarding my teeth and were very thorough with their cleaning. They were aware of my time crunch and had me in and out with clean teeth and more importantly, I better understanding of the current condition of my teeth. I’ll be back in 6 months!

Terrence Frank (Source: Google)


Just had my first filling ever and was pretty freaked out about it. I’m not a big fan of needles or dental work. Dr. Patel instantly picked up on my anxiety and went to work making me feel at ease. She was so caring and sweet the entire time, it made the experience way less stressful. She’s amazing at what she does. If you need a dentist in Chicago, go to Rooted. They’re hands down the best in Chicagoland.

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


Dr. Patel “inherited ” me from the previous dentist. He highly recommended her and he always was a great dentist that I completely trusted. I’m glad I stayed. Dr Patel is professional, thorough, and her expertise as a dentist is exceptional! She is really dedicated to building strong positive relationships with her patients. She is kind and compassionate and a joy to visit. Her staff is attentive and very skillful at assisting with your dental care. Scheduling appointments is quick and easy. Dr. Patel and her staff go above and beyond to ensure the best possible care for you! Give her a call and you’ll never regret it.

Viktoria Z. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Patel is the most patient, thorough, transparent and understanding dentist in the city hands down. She fully understood what I needed to feel relief and comfort with my smile. I love her office! It’s clean, beautiful and the staff always greet you with a smile. You should definitely pick Rooted Dental Care when choosing your dentist. You won’t be disappointed.

Kate W. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am someone that gets very nervous with going to the dentist or having any dental work done. In the past month, I’ve had 3 appointments, one of them being a root canal. Dr. Patel and her staff made me feel so comfortable and apart of process by taking me through each step as it happened. I’ve had negative experiences at 2 other dentistries in the area and cannot recommend Rooted enough. They have a lifelong fan, now!

Madison N. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Patel is great! Unfortunately, I had not been to the dentist in 2 years. Dr. Patel and her staff never made me feel ashamed or embarrassed about my teeth. She was very kind and informative. I had a lot of questions about what my insurance would cover and she was very patient with me. I received a filling and she did a wonderful job. I was very impressed with her interactions with her staff. You can tell it is a positive work environment. Highly recommend if you are looking for a dentist in the Lincoln Park area.

I hadn’t been to the dentist for several years before going to Rooted. As a result my mouth required several follow up appointments and I appreciated how judgement free the team was about this. Despite being a new patient the entire staff treated me as if I had been going there for years. The team guided me through my treatments always prioritizing my comfort and always with a sense of humor. For the first time in my life I will look forward to going to the dentist again.

Dr Patel and staff are all very professional, efficient, and caring. We are always seen at the appointment time, the procedures are thoroughly explained, and Dr Patel and staff work to ensure appointments are pain free. The office is new, with the latest equipment and preventative practices. In addition, we like that they can accommodate multiple family members at the same time. We highly recommend Rooted Dental Care!

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


Very clean and modern office. Dr. Patel makes sure to explain everything thoroughly using all the technology at her disposal, and the staff are extremely helpful and kind. Received follow-up texts from Kelsea the hygienist the day after my cleaning. Wish I would have started coming here sooner!

Super nice, friendly and have integrity. Beautiful work, my front tooth looks great, can’t see the line where the chip is attached to the filling. They examined the tooth, took an X-ray to check that the root was healthy. Then before they started any work on the tooth they presented me with a written document stating the prices for the exam, X-ray and cost to repair the tooth, which was very reasonable. I’m paying out of pocket and you get what you pay for! The result is a lovely, seamless appearing front tooth, they also shaped the opposite front tooth, which was sharp. Quality work.

The best experience I could’ve asked for during a Root canal. I was scared and hesitant to get it done with a dentist I’ve never met. But Dr. Patel and her team were very personable and great with breaking down the ins and outs of the procedure and making me feel more than comfortable. They exceeded my expectations and I plan to continue with them for any future oral hygiene needs.

Lindsey C (Source: Zocdoc)


I have had a lot of root canals and that was by far the best experience I have ever had! It was completely painless from start to finish! The staff was attentive and put me right at ease. They worked out every single one of my questions patiently. Dr. Patel is truly talented and extremely pleasant. I will no longer have anxiety before going to the dentist now that I have found Dr. Patel and her team!

During Covid, it’s a bit scary to think of having your teeth cleaned but the staff at Rooted have thought each part of the process through. Not only that, but the office is lovely, welcoming and super clean. All the staff were friendly and eager to help make sure the experience was the best. Excited to find a new dentist so close to home and so awesome!
