Our Happy Clients
I have found my Chicago Dentist and couldn’t be happier. Dr. Wittmus is genuine, extremely knowledgeable and makes you feel really comfortable in the chair. With a great support staff and his expertise, it makes going to the dentist an actual pleasure! Can’t recommend them high enough.
Dr. Wittmus has been my dentist since Day One of his current office location of 20 years. He is one of the most caring people I have ever encountered, and the most considerate and gentle dentist I’ve ever had! Dr. Wittmus returns calls, and accommodates emergencies. I highly recommend him and his equally gentle staff to anyone looking for a professional, up-to-the-minute trained and cheerful dentist!
Absolutely phenomenal! LOVE the entire staff at Grateful Dental. Which, coming from someone who used to have to be dragged to the dentist, is no small feat. The staff is friendly, welcoming and kind. I even make my own appointments which I am told is something adults do. Knowing I used to fear (note the past tense) dentist’s visits, they always ensure I am aware of what is happening and what the next steps are. Dr. Wittmus is just as informative and straightforward. No one is trying to push anything on you at all. Everyone is efficient yet immeasurably kind. I never feel like Dr. Wittmus or the staff are rushing to get to the next appointment and yet, I am in and out with everything taken care of, all my questions answered and a warm, moist towel.
Grateful Dental has been phenomenal. My husband and I are new to the area and needed to find a dentist. Through Yelp, we decided to give them a try! The five star ratings our true and I would rate higher if there were a higher rating. The staff is efficient, kind, caring, compassionate and competent! The office is welcoming and clean. Most importantly, it is excellent dental care with no pain. I can honestly say it is the first filling I have had done in years with no pain. They understand the most modern techniques including digital X-rays Sensors which was neat to be able to understand my specific teeth. Thank you Grateful Dental!
Dr. Wittmus is by far the best dentist I have ever had in my life! He is very caring and knowledgeable and always does what is best for his patients’ well-being. He lets you know exactly what is going on and thoroughly explains all options. And to top it off, he is very timely and compassionate as well. The office staff are extremely professional and skilled, and all together they make a 5 star team. Grateful Dental rocks!!!
AMAZING experience. Grateful Dental is hands down the best dentistry I have encountered. The staff there really accommodate to your needs and the atmosphere is relaxed. I have learned so much about oral health and I now look forward to cleanings! Since going to Grateful Dental, one of my personal goals is to be cavity-free in 2017 and I take pride in my teeth.
What can I say that hasn’t already been said? Everyone at Grateful Dental was fantastic. In no time, I was sitting in the dentists chair and getting the process started. It was painless and my mouth feels like a million dollar smile. I had a wonderful experience from beginning to end. I even go myself a goodie bag!
I just want to thank you tremendously for getting me in, for your patience, caring ways/kindness, great personality/sense of humor and knowledge that goes even beyond the 3D way of life. It was such a pleasure meeting you and your beautiful, patient staff- val and Julie (such angels)! It’s unfortunate I didn’t see/meet you earlier, but needless to say, I’m grateful (no pun intended) for having manifested you into my life at the present moment and will spread the love of your practice to others I know! Truly thank you- I have never experienced a dentist like you and I’m glad you created a benchmark as to what to look for in a dentist/in people overall. Thank you for your guidance! I thoroughly enjoyed the short 2 visits I had.
Dr Wittmus is extremely knowledgeable about his profession. You can ask him any question and he can answer it with confidence and explain it simple terms so you can walk away with an understanding. They make sure to give you friendly reminders of your appointments and answer questions you need answered.. Overall, Dr Jeff is like an extended part of our family and treat us like one in return. You can tell he loves his job and it shows in his work. My family and I completely trust him with our dental care. I highly recommend him!
