Review Pie Chart

I've been coming to Big City for decades (since it was "Always There" across the street. No matter the name, Dr. Kalensky and his staff have always been superb, super helpful, friendly, on it and it's actually a pleasure to go to the dentist. Wait? Did I say that? Yes, I did. It's a pleasure to go the dentist at Big City. Had a new (for me) hygenist this time, Austin, and she was fantastic! Thanks for all your years of service to everyone there. I greatly appreciate the work you do and am grateful for it. -Bill 10-6-17

Dr. Kalensky performed the most thorough dental exam I've ever had in my life.  The assistant, Lisa, was quick and efficient.  The hygienist, Casey, did an excellent job. -Jerilyn 5-3-2018

I have been a patient of Big City Dental for over 20 years and have always received top quality care, respect, and support. I can honestly say I enjoy going to the dentist!-Ellie 5-15-2018

I love this office and would recommend it to anyone searching for a dentist. I strongly appreciate the way my questions are answered and everything is explained to me clearly. I feel lucky to have found a great dentist and plan to keep coming back as long as I am in Chicago! -Lindsey 10-22-17

Dr. Kalensky is gentle, caring, top-notch professional who pays attention to every detail in the practice, in order to deliver quality dental treatment efficiently and painlessly. -Brenda 10-6-17

Wonderful, warm, friendly, accommodating, transparent. Been a happy customer/patient for double-digit years. Michelle is exceptionally skilled as a hygienist and a friendly and knowledgeable dental professional.- Charlie 9-28-17

Big City Dental has been everything I'd hoped for in a dentist. From the friendly voice that answered the phone, scheduled my appointment and went over all costs involved (I don't have dental insurance), to the dental hygienist, to Dr. Kalensky. During my appointment, Dr. Kalensky went though, basically, everything that's going on in my mouth - from what I can work on now, to what might need to be done in the future. It was easy to see what he was talking about as they took photos of all of my teeth and displayed them in front of me as we discussed - so he was able to show me any areas of concern. Besides the great service, their office on Southport was beautiful too - relaxing, tranquil and very clean. Big thumbs up here! I've already told 2 of my friends about it who are looking for a new dentist!
