We love Dr. Chris and his whole staff! They are awesome, friendly, and flexible!!
I brought my 3 year old daughter in for a check-up and Dr. Compton was wonderful. I had a lot of anxiety going into this appointment since she can be a nervous kid and HATES to sit still, but the staff was caring and really made my daughter and myself feel welcomed and calm. I have recommended this practice to all of my friends and family and will definitely be returning! Thank you for such compassion!
I am so pleasantly surprised by my experience at Chicago Kidds. I brought my 2 year old son in for his first cleaning and because he is so young I wanted to see a specialist. They definitely made us feel special. From the personalized sign in the waiting room to the assistants who were so great with my son. I am so glad we went to an office that specializes in kids. Dr Sandra was so sweet and the front desk thoroughly explained the next visit. My son can't wait to go back!
I have twins which are a handful. I have used multiple children's dentists before and all have been a disastrous experience - and I wasn't blaming those other dentists, I knew it was the twins! But this time I decided to try Chicago Kidds Pediatric out of sheer luck. Sure enough, this was the first time that the kids did not come out kicking and screaming. The staff is super friendly and professional, and Dr. Neal really knows how to work with kids. I will definitely come back again next time. And the toy at the end was a nice bonus!Grant W.
Always great and friendly service by the entire staff. Dr. Neal is great and my kids love going there. We've been coming here for at least ten years and not once have I received a complaint about going to the dentist.
It's always nerve racking to take your 3 year old to their first dentist appointment. But the staff at Chicago Kidd's made her feel calm and she had a great first visit. They were able to get all the plaque build up off her teeth! Daughter loved picking the surprise toy at the end of her visit. Lucky our friends referred us to this office! Will be bringing my other 2 year in for his first cleaning soon!
We were recently in the Chicago area visiting family when my 5 yr old son chipped a tooth while playing with his cousins. My sister-in-law called Chicago Kidds (her kid's dentist) to see if they could see my son on short notice. Not only did they squeeze him in on what appeared to be a very busy day, the staff was very friendly and they did a great job fixing the tooth. Thanks Chicago Kidds, you guys are awesome!
The office staff is super nice and friendly and the dental hygienists are amazing all extremely patient with the kids. My son had a couple cavities and a root canal filled by the female dentists who are fantastic, and so patient. I just don't know how to read the male dentist whose always there. He seems pissed off all the time and like he hates his job. I recommend the practice itself as a whole but maybe request only the women dentist.
My daughter just turned 4 years old, so she was overdue for her first dentist visit. When seeking referrals, I found out 3 of my good friends take their children here, so I was definitely taken by their raving reviews and I took my daughter on Thursday (11/29/2018). From I moment I made the appointment over the phone, I was impressed! The receptionist was polite and informative. The reminder of appointment texts was helpful as well.The day we went, my daughter's name met us at door on the "Welcome New Patient" Chalkboard. She was so excited to see her name! There were plenty of toys and a Christmas movie in the waiting room (excellent for keeping kids of all ages entertained). The office was clean, holiday friendly and the wait was not long!My favorite part (aside from it being my daughter's first dentist appointment) was in the back they have EVERY fish from "Finding Nemo" in their fish tank! It was a nice/unexpected surprise. Fast forward, they were EXCELLENT reassuring my 4 year old daughter that everything would be okay. They explained everything in ways she could understand and gave examples of each tool and it's purpose. My daughter got to pick her own teeth cleaning paste (from at least 8 different flavors); she smiled and wanted to talk most of the cleaning process. My daughter left with a cute baggie full of dental goodies, stickers, rings, a balloon and she got to pick a Disney character tooth the brush. Last, she received certificate with her picture (to congratulate her on completing her first dentist visit). As a parent, it's an amazing feeling when your child is made to feel "special"/important. It was definitely a memorable first experience and the talk of her Preschool class Tuesday morning. Thank you Chicago KiDDS; see you in June!
( I posted this review on Facebook and they blocked me lol so nobody can see this) A bit disappointed I had seen all the wonderful reviews and was very excited to bring my son in. When I made his appointment I specifically mentioned that this was his first visit and he does not do well with doctors. They said that they would use something to relax him and let him be cooperative. (That's why I decided to look for pediatric. I should of just used my insurance and saved my money)That was not even an option once we got there unless he needed a major procedure. I told my son they where just going to count his teeth and look inside but the nurse was fast to tell him that no they where going to clean his teeth and that made him freak out even more. I also did not appreciate that they kept repeating that for his next visit he should come back on his own. I'm sorry but my son is only 5 years old I don't feel comfortable for him to be on his own. And for paying the $104 office visit it would of been nice to have received his little goody bag since the doctor mentioned he would be putting a couple other items for him. Made an appointment for September but it will be canceled.
I was recommended this place by some friends and my pediatrician. I brought my daughters here for the first time. It was awesome. The staff was great, and we saw Dr. Compton. She was really great with the kids, and very informative. I wish this could be my dentist
Fantastic visit with my kids. Dr. Neal is great with them, i would highly recommend!!!
Amazing Dentist!!!! Took my kids to my dentist, and it was an awful experience. We looked for a pediatric dentist and we are so happy that we did. Dr. Neal and his team were so awesome with the kids. They were all happy when they left. How many people go to the dentist and are happy when they leave?!! Job well done! I would recommend this office to anyone with children!
I just started bringing my children to see Dr. Neal. He is a great doctor that went into detail with me about both my children’s exam. The way he interacts with the kids is phenomenal. He made it a great first experience at his office, where my children now no longer dread going to get their teeth cleaned.
Just had a fantastic visit with my 2 year old. These guys are great!!!
Terrific bedside manner with my 2 girls. Very nice doctor
Always an Awesome Experience, everyone from the staff to the doctor is fantastic!
this place is great, my son loves coming here!
We LOVE Dr. Chris! He is the best!!!!
Always a great experience for my kids!
Had our first visit with Dr. Neal, and it was fantastic. He was terrific with my 2 girls. Great experience
We love Dr. Neal, hes great with the kids
Amazing with the kids
We had a really nice experience. The whole office was so friendly
In the past I have had terrible luck with pediatric dentists. Dr. Neal was FANTASTIC with my children. He was able to comfort them and make our time there amazing! I will now only bring my children to see him.
It has been so hard to find a good pediatric dentist, so when we found Dr. Christopher Neal it was quite a relief. Him and his staff are so caring. I am very happy with their service and would highly recommend!
AWESOME DENTIST! best experience by far that Ive ever had with my kids and the dentist. This place is the best, and Dr. Neal is so nice. Top Notch
My son had a dental emergency, and was in severe pain to say the least. Luckily, I found Dr. Neal! He took great care of my son and for that I am thankful. This office and Dr. Neal are wonderful along with the rest of the staff.
I have 2 young boys (5 and 9) and the boys previous dentist was not the best. I was on vacation in Chicago when my oldest son started having pain in front tooth. He would not stop complaining :-/ I yelped and made a few calls. I choose Dr. Neal's office. Dr. Neal's whole office was amazing, even the woman who I spoke with on the phone was polite and informative and was able to accommodate my schedule. My boys each needed a cleaning and a checkup. The office was able to see both of mykids. My oldest needed 2 fillings and myyoungest needed no work. This was all a month ago. My oldest has had no pain and tells me his teeth feel great. My youngest was told his mouth was great and he needed to brush more...andhe is! 7/5 stars, everyone was amazing, skills of dentist super, my boys loved them. Really I appreciate the fact my boys now have no fear of the dentist. Great office, I recommend them to everyone.
My daughter has been going here for quite some time. She'll be 8 in a few months and has been fearful of the dentist since she was 3. We were REFERRED here because of this issue, so they were well aware. We've never had a problem, but this day in particular was a rough start. We had a long weekend of her baby sister being in the hospital and going to bed late. The appt took longer than usual, she came out in tears. Dr Neal proceeded to tell me she was "downright combative," they were able to successfully clean her teeth but were unsuccessful at obtaining the X-rays. I explained it was a rough weekend, apologized for her behavior and I quickly rushed her to the car and scolded her for acting out. I was livid with her. I could tell something was bothering her the entire afternoon. A few hours later she proceeded to tell me that the hygienist as well as another woman told her, while attempting to take the X-rays, "I can have the mean lady come do it and she'll shove it in your mouth." My daughter said she was "afraid of choking" and tried to tell them this. She was in tears explaining that she "tried to be brave" but was clearly very uncomfortable. She said she even asked for me to come back there and they refused. Now I know this would maybe not help the situation, but whatever happened back there (as they encourage parents to not go back with the kids) threatening a 7 year old that is CLEARLY fearful is not acceptable in any sort of situation. I called and spoke to Dr Neal, he apologized and in a sense blamed my daughter for "needing to get over it" as she's "almost 8." And perhaps this was "their tactic" to maybe scare her a bit into cooperating. Yes. Exactly. A THREAT. Totally disregarding that perhaps she was maybe just having a bad day due to an extremely stressful weekend. He DID agree it was unacceptable and said he's speak to the staff. He was also quick to hang up with me, as he "had patients waiting in the chair." Completely insensitive move, especially since my first reaction was to return to the office and cause a scene, as most parents would. I also have yet to hear back from anyone in that office. I was sure to notify the dentist who referred me, as well as MANY FAMILY MEMBERS who are in the dental field. They were mortified as well. I'm never one to claim my kid does no wrong. I'm a pretty understanding person. But you threaten my kid, especially in an environment where she's supposed to feel safe, thats where I draw the line. If your child is the perfect patient and has no fears, maybe this place is for you. If not, AVOID AVOID AVOID.
I am so happy that we found this office. From the minute we walked in, the staff was so calm and comforting towards my 4 year old son who was extremely anxious. We have had bad experiences at other offices. They took the time to explain everything to him from the cleaning to his "pictures" xrays. Then Dr. Neal came, and he was so nice and made my son actually enjoy the dentist. This is by far the greatest experience that we have ever had! I recommend this office to anyone with children! Job well done!!!!

Grossly incompetent, disgusting excuse for a dentist. Should be ashamed of himself
Dr. Neal was FANTASTIC with my two girls! We had a terrible experience with another local pediatric dentist, and he was able to comfort them and put them at ease. I would highly recommend his office!
This office was an absolute blessing to find after we went to numerous "family dentists" that couldn't help my fearful daughter.
During my visit, I needed to take my daughter to get some dental work done. I was so relieved to find Dr. Neal! I was referred to him by many people. He was gentle and caring with my daughter who doesn't take dentists lightly. Thanks for helping her and getting her to be more brave!
I could write a book but this place is the best for kids. The entire staff from the front desk, to billing, assistants, hygienists and dr. Neal are all super friendly and made my kids (6 and 2) fall in love. Both kids are shy and were super scared of the dentist. My 2 year old wouldn't stop talking to dr Neal and loved it and looks forward to his visits. My 6 year old had to have some dental work done (not fun work), and I was so scared/nervous trying to figure out how she was going to handle it, and dr Neal went above and beyond to make her feel comfortable and relaxed. My daughter didn't even need my help during any of the work! She was a pro! Now neither of my kids want me going back with them, they love it! Highly highly recommend. They also got my son in immediately when he was having tooth pain, and are extremely easy to make apts with. I have went to a few pediatrics dentist before this one too and they don't compare
Awesome place. My daughter loves to go to the dentist because of the special care, games on the wall and the service. Really great place.
It's hard to find a good pediatric dentist so we are so relieved to find Dr. Neal. Him and his staff are so caring and gentle. Very happy with their service and would highly recommend Dr. Neal and this office.
My kids LOVE this place. The staff was so kind! Everyone from checking in to the doctors was top notch!!!
My husband and I are absolutely relieved to find a pediatric dental clinic where my daughter feel comfortable going to. Dr. Neal took great care of my 8 year old daughter during her last visit. Her teeth are in tip top shape and she actually likes going to the dentist now! The staff here is excellent and the waiting room is clean and kid-friendly. In fact, it's also fun. There are two game stations that kids can play on so they don't get bored while waiting. Overall, I highly recommend this place! Your kids will thank you for taking them here!
I was in town with some family and my niece had a dental emergency. Thankfully, I found Dr. Christopher Neal! He took care of my niece like she was family and for that I am grateful! This office and Dr. Neal are great along with being very nice and welcoming. I would highly recommend Dr. Neal to anyone looking for a great pediatric dentist.
I was given multiple referrals to Dr. Neal. This is a dental practice that is really child centered. I was very nervous about choosing a dentist for my child, as I myself had negative experiences as a kid. I found I had nothing to be nervous about! My son adores going to Doctor Chris. This place is made for kids. There is no detail left unattended to. Your children will love going to the dentist. You will be impressed, I guarantee it!
I am not one to write reviews, but after taking my 20 month old daughter to Chicago kiDDS there was no way I couldn't not write a review. This was my first time taking my daughter to the dentist and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect experience! From the minute you step into the office you are greated with superb customer service, the dental assistants were so friendly and Dr. Chris was so gentle and outgoing. He made my daughter feel comfortable and put me at ease being a first time parent! The entire experience at the office was far beyond perfection! I would HIGHLY recommended Chicago kiDDS to any parent! Thank you for making our time there one to rave about! Thank you, Lea and Grace
I was here for an appointment. Waiting room is good. There are games for the kids and another room with a TV. When your called, there is a nice environment and service. You have nice dentists working with the teeth. After your done they will talk about what happened. Then the most annoying thing happens. I heard everything, but then they have to send a letter for no reason. They do the letter nicely, but they didn't have to do it in the first place, which I think is a bit pointless. I think they are nice, but that one thing is why it isn't 5 stars. For a new company, it's great!
I brought my 3 year old for her first dentist appt today, and I could not have been more impressed. First of all, the office was immaculate, and is very kid friendly and fun. Before the appt started, the hygenist explained in detail what they would do during the visit. The staff was VERY gentle with my daughter. Both in their bedside manner and their touch. They cleaned and flossed my daughters teeth very quickly. She didn't have one complaint! Dr. Neal is very personable and professional. He handles everything very efficiently and is always willing to answer any questions or concerns. Thank you so much Chicago Kidds!!!! My daughter and I love you!!! And a HUGE thank you to Dr. Neal for being such a kind, good natured, and easy to talk to doctor.
I have been there multiple times and each time all the doctors, hygienists, and coworkers have been so warm and welcoming to my family. Could not ask for better service. I would recommend this practice to any family.
We are so happy that we found Dr. Neal!! My 4 year old has had some rough experience with other dental trips, and this office and Dr. Neal were just awesome with him!!! I would highly recommend this place for anybody with kids!!!
They are awesome! Took my kids here after a bad experience at a regular family dentist. Dr. Neal and his staff were great. They put my fearful daughter at ease. I would tell anyone to bring their kids here, its the best!
I absolutely LOVE Chicago KIDDS! Dr. Neal and all of the staff are wonderful.... from the front desk to all the hygienists! My boys love going to the dentist and that is a win in my book! The waiting area is great for the kids and the wait is never long! I really appreciate the communication they offer, from the text message reminders for appointments to the one on one with the doctor after all appointments. I truly love this office and I recommend them all the time to all my friends and anyone looking for a dentist for their kids!
I bring my 5 year old triplets to see Dr. Neal and we are very impressed by the professionalism and care that my children receive from the front desk assistance to the dental hygienist to the service that Dr. Neal provides. Highly recommend.
I have been bringing my son and daughter to Chicago KiDDS Pediatric Dentistry for the last 3 years. Dr. Neil and his staff have continuously met and exceeded my expectations in regards to dental work that has been performed on both of my children. His staff has been very kind, caring and patient. This is one doctor appointment my kids actually look forward to!
I am beyond ecstatic that we found Dr. Neal. My girls absolutely LOVE him and the office. He is fantastic with the kids, and the staff is all around great! I would HIGHLY recommend this office for children!
This dentist office is incredible!! From Start to finish I was pleased with every step. The lady at the front desk was very helpful and quick to get us signed in. The hygienist was so sweet. She talked to my daughter, asked questions and sounded like she genuinely cared. The dentist was great. He pointed out problem areas and made sure to explain each step of what he was doing to my daughter and myself. When I told my husband about our dental experience he wanted to make this his dentist! We are both very jealous that this is a pediatric dentist and not for us. I would recommend Chicago Kidds Pediatric Dentistry to anyone!!! Oh, and the office... its a kids dream! Ipads, books, and movies to watch!! LOVE LOVE LOVE this dentist! This dentist office is incredible!! From Start to finish I was pleased with every step.

The staff is super nice and professional. Dr Chris is awesome with the kids. The atmosphere is fun for the kids instead of scary which makes it a fun trip. My kids were happy after they left. Thanks!
This was my daughters first experience with a dentist at age one and she loved it. She couldn't wait to go back. The staff and office are great and the dentist is very detailed with his visits. It is now her second visit and she loves coming here. I would highly recommend them!
Chicago Kidds Pediatric Dentistry is an amazing place to bring your child. They are fast, efficient and have the most amazing attitudes.. Best Dentist and staff I've met so far.
Dr. Neal Is simply the best dentist my kids have ever had! The best customer service around and his staff are equally friendly and helpful! He is so attentive and wont do unnecessary procedures. I feel he is very honest and I feel so comfortable taking my kids to him. My kids LOVE going to see him!
I took my 4 yr old and 2 yr old in for their first dental appointment this week and I couldn't have asked for a better first visit! I expected both my kids to cry and be upset but they had the complete opposite reaction. They loved the office. Dr. Neal and his staff are so friendly, knowledgeable, and are excellent with children. The office is the cleanest office I have ever visited and perfectly decorated for children. It's bright, fun, and has iPads for the kids to play with. I recommend Chicago Kidds Pediatric Dentistry to anyone with children.I took my 4 yr old and 2 yr old in for their first dental appointment this week and I couldn't have asked for a better first visit!

We went for the first time today and loved it! Everyone was very friendly and patient. We didn't feel rushed like we have at other offices. They were very patient with my very scared 4 year old. Very happy with our choice and will highly recommend them to anyone!
I took my 8 month old in to the office and we were in heaven. No tears visit! The hygienist was so sweet and explained everything to my daughter. Our previous dentist was not so gentle and had done a few things that upset my daughter and made her resistant to cleaning x rays etc. Today she got X-rays and a cleaning with no issues at all. The hygienist was patient and did not rush her at all. The doctor was wonderful. My daughter loved him and his easy going, friendly personality. Office is inviting and makes kids feel comfortable and safe. Love it!! I took my 8 month old in to the office and we were in heaven. No tears visit!

My daughter's first dentist visit and she loved it! So did I. The offices are inviting, clean, cheerful, and bright.. also a reflection of all the staff we encountered and their delightful service. Thanks for making it a great visit and setting up my daughter for a healthy view of what great service is!
I cannot believe how lucky we were to have found this office. Our 8 year old is VERY anxious about certain things. Dental work is one of them. Dr. Neal is gentle, takes his time with his patients (as well as nervous parents) and explains everything he is doing. I cannot recommend this place enough!
I heard great things on a parent group about this place, and it definitely lived up to the expectations. I'm so glad we decided to take our 3 year old here, and will continue to do so. The environment was friendly, welcoming, professional, and they really know how to help kids through the visit. My daughter was nervous and by the time we left, she was happy to have gone to the dentist.
Amazing! My daughter had such a fun time! They really care about their patients! They go above and beyond! My daughter was a fuss monkey!!! So they kept giving her toys to entertain her! Nothing but good vibes from every staff member there!
Dr. Savide was great and we like Dr. Neil even better. It is a big busy practice and scheduling can be a challenge.
