Someone you can trust. The. Set dentist I have ever had
in Mokena, IL |
Monday night an old gold crown came loose. It was almost 7pm but I called his office thinking I'd get a recording and would then know his office hours for the next day. A real person answered the phone. I explained the problem and asked for an appt. I was told Dr P. would be at his New Lenox office the next day at 8 am. Could I come in then? I sure could. The next day I went in and after an examination Dr P. put the crown back on. What great service. Thank you, Doctor Patterson.
in Tinley Park, IL |
Wonderful staff. The whole group is very accommodating and always pleasant. My wife and I have been seeing them for only about a year but they are very thorough with cleaning and checkups. My wife has MS and is having a tooth restored and they have worked hard to break up appointments and make her comfortable. I would highly recommend them.

Dr. Patterson is very friendly and professional. After a bad experience with a pediatric dentist, my children were scared of going to the dentist until they started seeing Dr. Patterson. He put them to ease and gained their trust. We have all now seen him ever since - several years now.
in Mokena, IL |
Nearly 30 years with this practice for good reason: Dr. Patterson and his staff are awesome. Excellent service for fair prices.
Mokena, IL |
Our whole family has appointments with Dr Patterson, but so far my 5 year old is the only one that has been to the office. It was her first dentist appointment and she went back ALL BY HERSELF! (I'm a little sad she didn't need me.) She loved her hygienist and Dr Patterson. Best experience ever!
Joliet, IL |
I do recommend Dr. Patterson, without hesitation, to family and friends. Very friendly and courteous and the office is very clean. The patient's comfort is always very important to the dentists and hygienists.
Mokena, IL |
I have been seeing Dr. P for many years. Excellent service.
Darien, IL |
All staff are knowledgeable and friendly, making the visit to the dentist as "pain free" as possible.
in Mokena, IL |
I had a great experience, he put my fear of pulling my teeth at ease and with little to no pain and I thank him for that.
Mokena, IL |
I had no problem with Dr Patterson or the hygenist who performed my teeth cleaning. However, the office manager was asking for money from me for a procedure that my husband had done LESS THAN A WEEK AGO!! The staffer then asked me for payment on a procedure I had done ALMOST A YEAR AGO!! I never received a bill! Due to the office staff hitting me up unexpectedly for money I am giving a low score. I have insurance, how about letting the insurance process the claim THEN ask for money??!!
in Monee, IL |
I've always had such a fear of going to the dentist but the staff at Dr Patterson's make me feel very comfortable and put me at ease. Dr Patterson makes sure I have no pain at all when doing fillings or crowns. I would recommend them to everyone.
in Mokena, IL |
One minor note, Dr. Patterson doesn't use your name when he greets you. It seems rather impersonal. It's a small thing but I do notice. His care and treatment is very good. Also, my last few appointments have been with Dr. Sadie and she is excellent!
in Homer Glen |
Great service Dr. Patterson is great with his patients
Naperville, IL |

in Mokena, IL |
Very knowledable about care, and solutions to my needs. Never had a bad experience. Top notch service by the whole staff.
in Chicago, IL |
Dr. Patterson is an excellent dentist. He assesses carefully, knows what is needed, and takes time to explain all options. He is understanding of dental fears and makes every effort to alleviate them. He is pleasant and takes all time necessary without rushing. I trust his ability, his professional opinion and his advice, as I have for many years. The staff is very professional and pleasant.
in New Lenox, IL |
My Family and I have been going for over five years. Good Good Good Good Good. Never any issues. If you have an emergency, they work you in, no questions asked. Billing insurance without issue. Appointment notification system works great.
in Mokena IL |
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.
Frankfort, IL |
You will be treated kindly and professionally here. Very thankful to have found these people.

Beth has been cleaning my teeth for the past three years and I wouldn't want anyone else doing it she's awesome. I would and do recommend people to Dr Pattersons office.
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

in Palos Park |
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 |

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.

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.
