“I came to UIC after several years of being unsatisfied with the dental care I was receiving at private clinics. I can’t say enough good things about the care I’ve received at UIC in the last year.

Fatima was the student who did my intake and assessment appointment and we immediately had a wonderful rapport. From the start, she has been caring and communicative. She explained the entire treatment plan, and has continued to make sure I understand each step. I am an anxious person, but Fatima has made me feel safe in the dentist’s chair. She has gone above and beyond to check in with me, and even scheduled an extra appointment when I broke a temporary onlay. I feel that I’ve learned so much from her explaining things and I am more empowered to care for my teeth and advocate for my ongoing care.

Over this last year, Fatima has built trust with me as her patient. Her skill is evident in my huge smile. I couldn’t be happier with the quality of her work. I speak highly of UIC to all my friends and family because of the care she’s given.”

“Dr. Obrez and Dr. Sahni, have worked as a team to find solutions to my TMJ pain management in addition to monitoring the joint issue they’ve identified. My issue is connected to a form of arthritis of my jaw joint based on the continued deterioration. It’s been a journey to say the least, but my daily pain level has lessened with much thanks to your team’s excellent care.

In addition to the phenomenal care I’ve received, I also believe not enough dental schools around the country are specializing in TMJ or truly understands the complexities of it as well as Dr. Sahni and her colleagues do. They are good to their patients and training the next generation of students as well.”

Nerve damage during a previous wisdom teeth extraction by another dentist, led Tanya to Dr. Michael Miloro, Professor and Head of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at UIC / UI Health. Dr. Miloro is an internationally recognized expert in trigeminal nerve repair. He performed a repair of the right lingual nerve using a nerve allograft, restoring feeling in her tongue and her ability to taste and eat normally. “The care I received at UI Health was unbelievable! I did not tell anyone I was an employee here, and I was provided an exceptional patient experience.”

“I underwent extensive oral reconstruction and believe me it is not fun! BUT So far from the receptionists to the professors I am Thrilled. Every one has been kind, caring, and knowledgeable. Dr. Diana Cuestais very skilled, compassionate, thorough, meticulous, and mostly, in this career for the joy of helping people regain their confidence through a wonderful pain free smile. I could tell by her enthusiasm when she showed me my smile in a mirror after finishing 2 long grueling days placing my provisionals. I still have a ways to go but I honestly could not be happier with the care I am receiving and super excited for the outcome!”

“Dr. Marinis did a phenomenal job of keeping me informed of what was causing the issues and walked through what my course of action should be. I’ve been to other dental practices and hated going to different locations to get certain types of services done. I love the fact that you can do everything in one building. The front desk staff are always a pleasure to talk to and you always get that welcome feeling and a sense that they care about their patients. I would definitely recommend for people to come in and see for themselves.”

“I’ve been coming to the UIC College of Dentistry since last year, and I’ve been extremely pleased with the treatment. The students are incredibly professional and extremely conscientious about what they do. I don’t mind the appointments taking a little longer because I feel like it’s for a great cause – education of the next generation of dentists! I highly recommend them!”
