Thank you for making this experience as comfortable as possible! Dr Kakos, you are a gifted Dentist who extends the utmost in care & comfort! Your staff is warm and friendly!

Marcia K. Apr 16, 2015

This office is the best! It’s been 10 years since I’ve been to the dentist, and I was nervous about my appointment to say the least. I shouldn’t have worried! Joanna was amazing! So pleasant, so knowledgeable! She did such a thorough exam and cleaning! Kara was wonderful as well: She did my job for me, checking into my insurance, and she was also beyond pleasant! This office is out-of-network for me, but the extra expense is so worth it! I spent a lot of time on the Internet checking out a lot of dentists–let me save you your time and trouble: Just go here. You won’t find a better dental office anywhere.

Irene M. Apr 10, 2015

Dr. Kakos, Once again, your kindness and above all your professional care is greatly appreciated. Althought my new bridge doesn’t show, my Kakos smile does. Thank you. Ken and myself are fortunate to be among your patients. We compliment you for your professional staff as they welcome us so graciously and care for us.

Nick T. Apr 11, 2014

Joanna was my hygienist for the 3rd time since I have started having my dental work done at this practice. She is the very best hygienist I have ever had. Every time she cleans my teeth (which is an understatement – as she does so much more) I learn something new about caring for my teeth and gums. Joanna is also very personable and puts you at east.

Joann G Apr 8, 2014

I was nervous to walk through the door just because my anxiety in dental offices goes through the roof. I was warmly greeted by everyone in the office. Granted, I only had a couple x rays taken but Dr Kakos made me feel comfortable and addressed all my questions and explained everything clearly.

Jennifer Z Apr 3, 2014

Entire staff feels like family. No office changes necessary.

Always a great experience!

David K. Feb 1, 2014

I was impressed with everyone in the office. I was greeted from the moment I walked in the door and sent off with smiles all the way around. Joann, my dental hygienist, was awesome! Couldn’t of had a better experience. She made me feel at ease, explained everything she was doing and talked me through options for dental care before I left. Dr. Kakos came over to say hello and introduced himself and I just felt welcomed from the moment I walked in to the moment I left. Great job! Will definitely recommend friends and family to your practice. Thank you.

Mario P. Jan 31, 2014

I appreciate all the talent and hard work you all do for your patients, including me and Andy. I’m very thankful for your practice as this Thanksgiving approaches – have you all have a nice holiday!

FM, Nov 25, 2013

Dr. Kakos, I just wanted to tell you how many compliments I receive on my teeth. I’ve had a few cleanings and check-ups out here in Arizona and I’ve gotten surprised reactions from every doctor and hygienist because they can’t believe the teeth you made for me are not real. Each one had the best things to say about your work so I really wanted to share that with you. Teeth are extremely influential to one’s appearance and I am beyond appreciative of your work and for giving me the confidence that accompanies a beautiful smile. Hope all is well with you and I’ll try to send some of this Arizona heat up north!

Best, Emily, October 22, 2013

Very nice offices and friendly and professional staff.

Peter L, Aug 13, 2013

I recently had Joanna as a hygienist. I have had many hygienists in my life, but none were in the same league as Joanna. She taught me more about caring for my teeth then I ever knew, and did an exceptional job cleaning my teeth, as well. She also puts you at ease.

JoAnn G, Aug 12, 2013

My technician (Lisa?) was excellent! Very thorough, and explained everything as she was progressing through the appointment. Very knowledgeable, efficient and friendly, with a courteous, professional demeanor. My first appointment here was a real pleasure!

Everything was great as it always is when I visit.

Dan W. Mar 25, 2013

I have recommended you to all of my friends and some of them already work with you and agreed 100% with my comments

Charlotte O. Mar 22, 2013

I can’t express how comfortable I felt with the office staff. The person who took my x-rays was so kind and gentle. The person at the front desk was very sweet. I can’t answer some of the questions on the survey because I don’t know all of my options. The doctor was very nice and did explain some of my options. I’m still some what nervous about the things I need done but I trust that I will be happy in the end.

Marlene P. Mar 22, 2013

Dr. Kakos, mouth/ jaw is feeling better. Thank you

Joanna was very personable and explained everything in detail to make my appointment comfortable.

Jack S.

I’m very happy with Joanna. She’s extremely conscientious and very pleasant to deal with.

Elaine S.

Explain the financial situation before I’m in chair. Rather then at the end of the appt. Other then that I had a pleasant experience with the staff and Dr. Kakos.

Randi H.

I would like to thank Dr. Jim and his entire staff for the excellent treatment I received this past year. I had extensive problems with my teeth and was forced to seek treatment after putting things off for a number of years. I was fearful of the prospect of wearing dentures for the rest of my life. After 10 months of treatment, I now have a perfect and permanent set of teeth, for the first time in my life. Although the work was extensive, it was painless and left me wondering why I hadn’t done it sooner. The cost was competative, but for the smile I have now, its worth twice as much. Thanks Dr. Jim and staff for helping me retain my active lifestyle with a perfect smile.

Love you guys, Mike C.

Dear Dr. Kakos,I was your patient a few years back and had my teeth beautified at your practice in 2008. Since then I moved out of the United States and lived in various places around the world. Right now I live in Germany and had seen a new dentist just recently and I just wanted to tell you that every time a new doctor sees my teeth, and particularly the veneers that you had done for me, they just can’t stop praising the excellent job you did! This last time I heard a compliment that I feel obligated to pass on to you – that you are not just an excellent dentist but also true artist and that my veneers are one of the most beautiful they have ever seen. I hope to one day come back and finish what we’ve started! Wishing you all the best and please say hello to my favorite city in the world – Chicago!

Sincerely, Paulina F.

Dr. Kakos and Staff,I just wanted to thank you for your help with my dental work over the past several months. I wasn’t looking forward to all of the dental work that needed to be done. However, you and your staff helped me through it. I am doing well and enjoying my new smile.Thank you.

Kathleen W.

Just a quick note to express my gratitude for making a “new patient” feels very welcome and comfortable. You found my entire experience to be very amiable and professional.Thank you very much!

Regards, Jimmy R.

Dear Dr. Kakos,I want to sincerely thank you for giving me a beautiful smile. You are truly a talented doctor. From the beginning you helped me feel comfortable and confident in making my decisions to pursue a new smile. The compliments I have received from others are endless. I would highly recommend your services to others who are interested in having any dental work done. You truly are an artist. In addition, your staff has been amazing and pleasure to work with. I look forward to working with you in the future as my new dentist. I appreciate all you have done.

Sincerely, Roberta D.

Dear Dr. Kakos!I want to express to you how greatly I appreciate your professional expertise in performing my recent most difficult dental procedure.Your great staff makes coming to your practice a pleasure!

Thank you, Irene J.

Dr. Kakos and his Staff are Excellent! Like many others, the dentist office is not my favorite place. However, Dr. Kakos and his staff have turned my visits into pleasant experiences. I used to feel anxious before going to the dentist. Now, I am comfortable with the idea of my appointments. Even more to their credit, I won’t wait and suffer from dental pain before calling for an appointment. I know that they will take care of me and that seeing them sooner rather than later is better.I would refer Dr. Kakos (and have) to many people. The only downside is that there is only one of Dr. Kakos, his staff and the location.

Monique B.

Dr. Kakos, you and your staff have changed the way I feel about going to the dentist! I’m looking forward to my next visit. A special thanks to Lisa for taking such good care of me.

Kari T.

I refer people all the time. People in grocery store love my smile and i give them dr k’s number:))

Kelly H.

Dr. Kakos is a master at giving shots. He is cool calm and efficient.

Irene S.

My visit was very pleasant. The staff are always very friendly and helpful.

Joe K.

Everyone is always so welcoming and feel like family with the staff. Every visit is always a pleasure and not many people say that when going to the dentist so we highly value your office, service and staff! Thank you for all you do!

Julie K.

I had a new hygienist, Lisa – she was wonderful! I loved Terri and miss her – but Lisa was fantastic! I always LOVE Dr. K but I may have found him on an off day – he was a bit grumpy – I hope everything is OK.

Lisa T.

During my visit, I was offered various services/products. I would like to know whether insurance would cover these services and, if not, what the cost of the services are. Additionally, when setting up future appointments, I would like to be notified which dentist will be available to see me that day as I do have a preference.

Adam R.

Very clean facility, friendly staff and on time. Didn’t spend much time in the chair which to me means the office is very efficient.

Galen D.

Visit was quick, painless and work done to fix my chipped tooth looks perfect. Thanks again!

Bill K.

Lisa is a wonderful employee 🙂 Keep up the good work:)

D Haley W.

Your office and staff are excellent. Thanks for the great service.

Stefanie G.

Love the practice and all it’s employees.

Ryan M.

Cant think of any way that you could improve an already quality team… Thank you for helping me through an extensive dental reconstruction & keeping my “SMILE” the best it can be

Jackie F.

Great experience! Thanks!

Peter P.

Dr. Amiran and Mary are terrific. They work extremely well together and make you feel so at ease it’s as if you are talking with old friends (and in a way they are) and not having your teeth drilled. Always a pleasure to visit here.

Gerry H.

Truly, I have had good, average and one other wonderful dentist, but Dr. Kakos and his staff are the best in the Chicagoland area. I have no problem driving to Arlington Heights because of the outstanding service I receive.

Meredith W.

I can’t imagine what else you could do! Overhead TV, headphones, neck roles, friendly staff and conscientous desire to care and please the patients all contribute to an excellent visit. Thank YOU all!!

Sherry W.

Lisa and Dr. Kakos are an absolute delight. I appreciate the quality of care and recommend this place to all my friends and neighbors in AH. Thanks!

Dr. Kakos and Associates is a great facility for all dental needs.

Bill K.

Great, clean and professional environment. Everyone there is so happy, you can’t fake happy.

James B.

As soon as you walk in the door you are made to feel at ease. While signing some paperwork I noticed other cosmetic procedures available and it was so nice to to be upsold. Unfortunately the DR is out of my insurance network for my chipped veneer situation but I will make a appointment for other cosmetic procedures I would not trust anyone else to do.


As always – the best treatment no matter who takes care of me when I visit.

James S.

As always your staff turn a not so pleasant experience into a pleasant one.

Kathy L.

Keri, Joanna, (another aide or hygienist…don’t know her name), and Dr. Kakos are all absolutely wonderful. We’re happy with all staff and the other hygienists have also been wonderful to our entire family.
