I just had my teeth cleaned and I thought she did an excellent job. The front desk took the time to reschedule an appointment that I missed and Dr. Patterson is always willing to listen to any problems I am having concerning my teeth. Would highly recommend them.
in New Lenox, Il |
Great dentist. Nice office with friendly helpful staff.
in Homer Glen, IL |
Dr. Patterson and his office staff are great! Friendly, accommodating but highly professional. I never dread 'going to the dentist'. I have been a patient of Dr Pattersons' for almost 20 years and would never consider another dentist, even if my insurance required it. I have had teeth pulled, root canal, and other work completed. Dr. Patterson is a wizard with the novocaine! Highly recommend him.
Mokena, IL |
I am a new patient. I was there for a cleaning and just saw Dr. Paterson briefly. He was thorough in his exam and friendly in his approach. He listened and took seriously information I had received from my previous Dentist when we were on a work assignment out of the state.
in Mokena, IL |
Dr Patterson is the best. Wouldn't go any where else
in New Lenox, IL |
Although I didn't work directly with Dr. Patterson, Dr. Sadde along with Lia took care of my office visits. They both were exceptionally informal, professional, and were just outstanding people. I felt as if their knowledge of my dental care was at an elite level. Aside from their dental knowledge, their ability to treat people with care and respect set them apart from anyone else.

in New Lenox Il |
Dr Sady is always wonderful. She is always very gentle. Which is extremely important to me since I hate going to the dentist. I'll rephrase that. Hated! Not anymore. Michelle has made each visit easier with helpful advise on how to attack the tarter that she has to endure while cleaning my teeth. Thank you, and I highly recommend your office and staff. Tom Butkus

Dr Patterson is the most patient person I have ever met in my life. Everything is explained step by step as you are treated. He is a very caring person. The office staff is friendly, polite, and very professional. You are always reminded of your appointment with a phone call, email reminder and a text message. How many dentist offices do you go to where you see children leaving and smiling? A great professional business....
in Mokena, IL |
Dr. Patterson's Office and staff have always been very professional and friendly during all our visits. They have also been very accommodating to our needs and for the rescheduling of appointments if necessary.

The hygienists are always very friendly and do a fabulous job, and I love that I actually see Dr Patterson on every visit so I know I'm getting the best care possible.
in Frankfort, IL |
I am extremely grateful for the care given to my mother by Dr. Patterson and his staff. They were extremely patient and flexible with my Mother's appointments. My mother has advanced Alzheimer's which makes for difficult treatment, but Dr. Patterson and his wonderful staff were very professional and successful in treating her.
in Mokena, IL |
He was very understanding when I told him I couldn't afford going to the dentist he gave me estimate of work needed and didn't charge for 1st visit. I will be going to him for my dental needs.

Dr. Patterson and his staff ALWAYS have the patient experience in mind. If you could actually say you like going to the dentist, this is as close at it gets. I am now retired and on Medicare, knowing I didn't have the insurance coverage from my job, I was concerned about the cost. It was nice to see a discount for those without insurance. Again, thanks to Patterson dental. Jim Kupiec, Mokena Illinois

I visited for my regular semi-annual checkup. Some of my favorite things about this Dental Center: I get a text message and email reminding me of my appointment; the hygienist is very thorough; they only do what's necessary (never try to sell me something I don't need); Dr. Patterson always does the final review and consultation. Very professional staff!
