Darrell Kuntz ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I've been going to Dr. Vitkin at the Chicago office for a long time. Almost 10 years I think. Dr. Vitkin and her staff are always so friendly and funny. They do excellent cleanings and dental work as well! Dr. Jon gave me a cleaning that was so good it inspired me to floss more to keep that "fresh from the dentist" feeling. That was impressive in my book!
