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

First and foremost, this dentist office is absolutely by far the best I have ever been to in my life. Taken from someone who is constantly worried regarding the appearance of my teeth. Originally from Michigan, I moved to Chicago 3 years ago. Why I picked So-Well? Well I wanted to find an office that was close to my apartment and being it was only a few blocks away I was sold. Second, I was looking for a dentist that offered Invisalign. Now I had braces when I was a kid and being the early teenager that most of us were, I was responsible and didn’t wear my retainer post straightening. Lastly, my first appointment was just a cleaning but once I was in there and met the whole staff, including Doctor Zenobia Sowell, I was convinced this was the place for me.They truly are quite the professionals and great bunch. After cleaning, I decided to schedule an appointment for a consultation for Invisalign. Long story short, they set me up with the 5 month Express (10 sets) changing them out every two weeks. So let’s just say I was in the office alot and I truly enjoyed every visit. Post invisalign, I opted to not only wear the permanent retainer but also the Vivera retainers. It’s alot of work to keep clean but well worth it. Invisalign has seriously changed my life and confidence in my professional and personal life. Never did I think I would feel this great post braces. I work in an office so the clear aspect was perfect and since I am such a OCD person, the process was a breeze. I want to say thank you for the So-Well Dental Associates team who truly changed my life and I would recommend them time and time again. They really do care about the patients dental hygiene and make you feel right at home. They not only look at you as a patient but a good friend (I tend to ramble on regarding my personal life and they are terrific sound boards). Please, if you are looking for a dentist in the Chicagoland area, go to So-Well!!! Sincerely, A very happy patient who will continue to support my favorite dentist team ever!

So-Well was the most spa-like dental experience I’ve ever had. The staff was incredibly engaged and informed and the technology was beyond anything I’ve ever seen. The best bedside manner I’ve ever received in my 30+ years of visiting Dental practitioners. I would recommend this practice to everyone; especially those who haven’t been to the Dentist in awhile and need a little extra hand holding. Thanks Ladies! See you soon!

Amazing place- can not say enough good things about them. Came in with excruciating pain, having gone 3 days without eating and 2 days without sleep and after a quick visit and some antibiotics I was eating again and managed to get enough sleep to not be legally crazy. I was impressed by how clean the office was, and how everyone took precautions wearing masks. 5 stars all the way around

I can’t believe the reviews for this office have been so terrible! I did see a groupon for this office but I didnt come here because of any groupon purchase.  I came here because I was referred by a friend.  If you are referred, you get $25 credit towards your visit. Yay!  The staff here was very nice and my dentist was awesome! She catered to my needs and is super friendly!!!! I left feeling refreshed with clean teeth! Very easy to get to on the Red line (get off at Clark and Division Stop).  On the ground level. Hard to miss it! Right across from Treasure Island grocery store.

I visited Dr. Sowell upon the advice of a lady I sat next to on an airplane. I called first to make sure this dentist was in-network with my insurance, because I don’t have a lot of moneys. I was relieved to learn I didn’t have any cavities. Just an aside, I think switching to an all-natural toothpaste has helped (no particular brand)… I haven’t had a cavity in two years, ever since making the switch. Anyway, the visit went so well, I decided to return for laser whitening. It cost $275, but I drink a lot of coffee, tea, wine, etc… so I thought it would be a good investment. They told me about Invisalign, but I’ve had two sets of braces in the past + was already spending a significant amount of money on the whitening procedure, so I wasn’t interested in doing that right away. Maybe later, since some of my bottom teeth shifted from not wearing my retainer… now they have a procedure where, after you finish Invisalign, they can do something to make your teeth STAY in place, how cool is that? Which is why I might do it later on when I have more moneys. The staff is very kind, very concerned. I had a good experience with them. Dr. Sowell is wonderful. I admit the laser whitening hurt a lot more than I thought it would. In ads, it looks like a spa treatment… quick, painless, and you leave w/ a beautiful smile! However, I don’t have sensitive teeth, or at least didn’t think that I did… but toward the end of the laser treatment and for 24 hours following, I had sensitivity and shooting pains through my teeth, especially the front. They say people react differently to it, some don’t experience anything. Ibuprofen helped, which is what they told me to take. I think I’ll work hard to keep my teeth white (i.e., drink coffee through a straw or something, use maintenance whitening trays, etc.) to keep from having to endure that again. My visits here have been very positive. I have suggested to several of my friends already, as I feel they do good work and have a great attitude which goes a long way in my book. 🙂

Dr. Sowell is awesome because she’s so personable, professional, welcoming, and thoughtful. She takes her time while working on you making sure your listened to, comfortable, relaxed, and not in pain. She really takes the time to get to know her patients and staff, whom she trains very well. I just adore her, she’s my favorite dentist who will continue to get my business!

This is my go to place for any dental work. Highly recommend getting a cleaning by Jocelyn who is a highly skilled hygienist. Dr. Sowell is also a very smooth and efficient dentist. I received three fillings and a frenectomy from her on the same day. Also the staff at the front desk are very knowledgeable and friendly.

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


I always get excellent service at Sowell.  I come in for what I need and they don’t try to push extra procedures or unnecessary work done as I have read about many other dentist offices.  They threw a really fun neighborhood get to know you party last year where is was great to sit and chat with all the staff and other clients and get to know everyone on a more personal level.  I really hope they do another one this year!  I’ve been with them for about 6 years now and I can’t see going anywhere else 🙂

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


Amazing and friendly service provided by the whole office staff. From the moment I walked in I was made to feel very welcomed and received exceptional treatment. What can be a dreaded experience for some was made to be very pleasant. I highly recommend Sowell dental–not only for the quality dental care, but for the fantastic customer service.

I must say that this establishment is top notch, from the receptionist to the dental technicians to Dr. Sowell. I was so worried about my dental well-being, but they quickly put me at ease and put a plan in place, tailored to my schedule availability, always with a smile. I am so glad I decided to visit So-Well Dental Associates. You are a God-Send! Thank you all for the encouraging words. It was greatly appreciated.

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


My new dentist rocks! When I called to make my appointment it was after hours but Dr. Sowell just happen to be there and answered the phone. She answered all my questions regarding my appointment and even scheduled it for me. The next day I received a call from the office to confirm my appointment and to make sure I didn’t have any additional questions. On appointment day the staff was very friendly and prompt. My hygienist was thorough and gentle and answer the 101 questions I had about next steps with my dental health. My experience was great! Service was on-point, office clean and up on all the current dental technology. Thanks to my dentist friend who recommended her!

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


I found out about SoWell Dental thru a Groupon Advertisement for Invisalign.  I looked up the office to see if they took my insurance and once I found that they did, I made an appointment and Very Pleased that I did.   I have been coming here for a couple years now and the staff is always really friendly and helpful.  The big  thing that sets this practice apart from others that i have been to in the past is the focus on the health and maintenance of your teeth and gums.  I feel that this office takes the time to take a closer look at any issues or potential issues and will put a plan in place. Dr. Sowell is very patient, gentle and kind as well as hygetist Cheryl and Alexia.  Thank you Groupon because I am Very glad to have found So Well Dental 🙂

Hands down the best dental office I have ever been to! Dr. Sowell did a remarkable/perfect job with my fillings, and Dr. Drach the best cleaning I have ever had – he also spent plenty of time explaining the importance/purpose of dental health/hygiene/cleaning in such a memorable way, that I will never brush my teeth the way I used to… Thank you So-Well team for a job So-Well done 🙂 Till next time!

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


I broke my front tooth when I was in high school and have had problems with it still after 5 years. During this time my tooth had fallen out close to ten times, my “bite” was uncomfortable and it was starting to feel that my confidence was breaking as well. After losing my trust in my original dentist and being turned away by others, So-Well Dental Associates helped a struggling college student by fixing my smile. Honesty is extremely important to me and they certainly were throughout the process. The staff was knowledgeable, professional and kind beyond words.

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


I’ve never really like visits to the dentist, but I have been very pleased with the service at So-Well Dental office. The whole staff was very friendly and kind. I have a busy schedule, but they always find a way to work with me in terms of time for my appointments. I started with them last year for a cleaning, Marla the hygienist was very good at explaining the best way to keep my teeth clean and gums healthy. Dr So-Well was fantastic, very professional. I’m currently in the process of getting my teeth straight with invisilign, I couldn’t be happier with the results.

Dr. Sowell and Associates – 100% fantastic!! I would give Dr. Sowell and her staff 10 stars if I could. I’m a long time patient (of Dr. Sowell) for over 28yrs, and her medical and professional care has always been the utmost to her patients. I moved away from the Chicago area some years ago, but when my job relocated me back in 2010, I resumed my Dental care with Sowell and Associates. She truly is the “Gentle Dentist.”

I’ve been with Dr. Sowell for several years. I travel from the western suburbs and pass up several suburbs and dental offices to make appointments with her. While going to the dentist period isn’t on my list of favorite things to do (kind of like going to the gynecologist), I’m not sure where I’ll go if she decides to retire anytime soon. Just wish they had Saturday hours. A very professional-looking, clean office. The staff is very customer friendly and careful when working on your teeth!

Miss Zenobia is a very good dentist she is very personable and she works with you to help you maintain good dental health she is also very kind and understanding and helpful in explaining what is going to be done so you don’t have to be scared even though nerves are ok LOL she is a positive person that believes in helping people and it shows in her work

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


It’s really unfortunate that the previous reviews shown on yelp do not talk about how amazing this place is! The staff are super friendly and I would argue that they are the friendliest dental staff that I’ve ever encountered! It is without a doubt that Dr. Sowell truly cares about her patients; she’s very kind and willing to work under difficult circumstances. If you need excellent dental service in the Chicago Gold Coast area (General dentistry, dental implants, invisalign, etc.) then you need to come to So-Well Dental Associates!

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


What a great dentist! Everyone was very nice, and to me, that’s what really matters. Nothing is worse than feeling condescended to at a place you don’t want to be in the first place. So many dentists seem to take poor dental hygiene as a personal insult, but not here. The entire staff was friendly and ready to help me. My dental hygienist was very concerned about my comfort. When she gave me advice on caring for my teeth, she wasn’t rude about it. Unlike most dental visits, I was not, for example, aggressively interrogated about my flossing schedule. When Dr Sowell came in she was also very gentle and friendly. Oh, and my teeth look and feel great. I’ve spent the last year or so stressing about my teeth, totally sure they were going to fall out by the time I’m 30 or worried that I have killer gum disease. The last time I saw a dentist he used scare tactics to try to get me to buy a full deep cleaning for over $500. Well, guess what? I never got that deep cleaning, but all that plaque is gone now with just one regular cleaning at So-Well. My only complaint is that So-Well is pricey. I never would have been able to afford this awesome dental care there if it wasn’t for a special group-on discount. I’m still giving them 5 out of 5 because, come one, dental care is just expensive, bottom line. And while I’m no expert, they seem to have all of the latest in fancy tooth technology (digital x-rays!), so at least all that money is going towards something that benefits the patients. I just hope they continue to find ways to offer discounts to those of us without insurance.

I came here the first time with a Groupon, and returned to have cavities filled.  I was very happy with the work by Dr. Sowell (or as happy as I can be to have cavities filled!).  All staff members have been consistently polite and friendly.  Plus, I have never actually had a female dentist before, so this was a pleasant change for me.  I will definitely be going back!

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


I, too, bought the groupon, but had been putting off going. But I finally got around to it, and I had a very pleasant experience; I have to admit, I’m a little baffled by the I arrived a little late, but they got me set up with my paperwork and the hygienist came in almost immediately. The cleaning was very gentle, no pain or bleeding whatsoever. They did digital x-rays, which were cool — it took about five seconds and was much less of a hassle than the older kind. A prior commenter noted that the x-ray does not capture the back teeth; well, they got mine, and additionally, these x-rays are so quick and easy to do, I cannot imagine they wouldn’t re-do them if you had concerns that they hadn’t captured all of the relevant teeth! The hygienist was very nice, and did scold me a little for using a hard tooth brush as opposed to soft, but not in an oppressive way, just in a ‘this is going to cause problems for you down the line, even if it doesn’t seem like it now’ way, which was appreciated. Also, nobody gave me a hard time for not having been into a dentist in so long. My exam was also fairly quick, but very through. She was concerned that I had just a little bit of gum recession, but did not attempt to sell me any extra procedures or anything like that, just noted that it should clear up now that I’d gotten the cleaning. They did try to book me for a 6 month cleaning, but this seems pretty normal. All in all, a very pleasant experience, with no pain from the cleaning at all.

Great practice! Convenient location and lovely clean reception. Dental hygienist is gentle and amazing and Dr Sowell is a superstar with 26 years experience. Not a start up. Very high tech systems that showed me each one of my teeth and xrays on the tv in front of me. I hadn’t had a cleaning in 4 years and they didn’t try and up charge me or sell me unnecessary services. Highly recommend.

Had to share again. I did Invisalign with Dr. Sowell. I couldn’t be happier with the results. She had built a great team of women around her. From the entrance when they greet you to the cleaning and amount of detail she puts in, I have been remarkably impressed. Thanks to the staff and Dr. Sowell for making this a great experience for me.

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


Do you have any friends that really HATE going to the dentist? Well, that friend is me. There is just something about the sharp instruments in my mouth and I can’t see what’s going on that really irks me about the dentist. However, it was time for my check-up and I needed to find a dentist that would be good. I read the reviews online for Dr. Sowell and they were pretty outstanding so I went to her yesterday. And it was great! The staff was amazing, explained every part of the process (Pictures, measurements, what axis my teeth were rotated on, etc),and talked through invisalign and luminere’s with me outside of my cleaning. I spent over an hour at the appointment but it was because we kept on discussing options and I never felt rushed or pressured to make any decisions on the spot. I will be going back to Dr. Sowell for my next 6 month check up and getting invisalign done here!

My day got off to the most amazing start today …. I went to the Dentist. Yeah, I know, it’s usually not my favorite place to go. But, So Well Dental made it a very good experience. They are professional, knowledgeable and simply the best in their class. I am looking forward to working with them to help me achieve my goals. That is, to have healthy teeth and an incredible smile. Thanks to the entire staff for making me feel like “one of the family” and for your unparalleled expertise. Cheers .. and, see you soon. -Shawn

I drive into the city from the ‘burbs to see Dr. So-Well! Love her and all her staff. Super friendly, great work, and they even moved quickly to get me back to my parking meter on time! The Doc’s techniques are wonderful as well…as she was drilling my tooth down for a cap, I had no pain and was able to hum along with the Christmas songs playing overhead. Thanks to everyone at So-Well Dental!! Happy Holidays and here’s to joyous 2017!!

After completing my time in the military I moved to Chicago in January. I needed to get a cleaning done but I was nervous to go to the dentist. I was in an unfamiliar city and I didn’t have many connections at the time. But I did some research and found Dr. Sowell. I read her reviews and I requested an appointment that same day. I had bad tooth pain, the lovely ladies at the desk called me to come in right away. I have never felt so much warmth, and love coming from a Dental Office. Dr. Sowell provides top notch service as well as her staff. Dental Hygienist Jezz is AMAZING! I am always afraid of sitting in the dental chair. But whenever I see her warm and friendly smile my nerves go away! I had a teeth whitening and cleaning done a couple of weeks ago and Jezz took wonderful care of me. She was SO gentle that I actually fell asleep twice in the chair! If you want personalized care and comfort, So-Well Dental Associates is for sure the place to be. Thank you Dr Sowell, Jezz, Raven, Nikki, and all of the other lovely ladies. Thank you for making Chicago feel a little bit more like home. – Cory
