I highly recommend Michigan Avenue Dental Associates for all of your dental needs. It is very hard for me to believe there are any negative review about this dental office. I am one that does not like going to the dentist or having any type of dental work done. I have had the most wonderful experience at the Michigan Avenue Dental Associates. After experiencing a lot of pain in a tooth that had a root canal done in 2006 I was sent back to the office that did the original root canal near my home in the suburbs. I was not comfortable having them do the procedure again or any other type of procedure. I was talking to a friend about my situation and she recommended me calling Dr. James at Michigan Avenue Dental Associates. He was very willing to help me and recommended I call his office on a Thursday to see the endodontist. The day I called the office I was pleasantly assisted by Linda who not only helped me in my situation but made me feel so at ease. She talked to Dr. Rocha while I was on hold and then told me Dr. Rocha would be able to see me that day at 3:00pm to evaluate my tooth. Since I live in the suburbs I was happy that I had a few hours to get together and get myself there on time. The parking was so easy. I was able to park in the building right behind the office. I know in future appointments there is plenty of other parking around or I can take the train. When I arrived at the office I was greeted by Linda and other staff members who were very welcoming. The office is beautiful and very clean. Let me remind you again that I do not like going to the dentist at all. However this dental office and the staff made sure I felt comfortable from the moment I walked in the door. Dr. Rocha examined my situation and was able to retreat my root canal that day. I knew I had finally come to the right place. Not only did she do all the normal root canal work, but she also took x-rays during the procedure and was very thorough. She was concerned about the amount of infection so she packed it with antibiotics and I came back two weeks later for her to do it again. Hearing that I had to return to the dentist was something that someone like me, someone who does not like going to the dentist, did not want to hear. However I knew I was getting the absolute best care possible. The second treatment went well and I am so thankful that I could have this procedure done at the office with Dr. Rocha. During this visit I also met with Dr. James who evaluated and removed two of my wisdom teeth that were actually in my mouth as regular teeth (not impacted) but that had started to decay. I had agonized over this need to have them removed for years. If only I knew how simple the procedure could have been having it done by such an excellent dentist, I would have had it done years ago. Dr. James was the best dentist I could have asked for! I was in no pain during the procedure and he took both teeth out with so much ease. Dr. James and his assistant made sure I was comfortable not only during the procedure but after as well. They gave me magazines to read while I waited in the chair for what happened to be only a few minutes. Dr. James also took the time to discuss the procedure with me and how to care for it at home. They called me at home and continued to check up on me to see how I was doing after the procedures. I returned to the office a few weeks later to see Dr. James and have him repair and finish my crown. Dr. James is a highly competent and skilled dentist. He is extremely friendly and knows how to take care of his patients. He makes going to the dentist a very positive experience. These past three visits at Michigan Avenue Dental Associates were better than I could ever ask for. I do not remember all of their names but everyone that cared for me while at the office was caring and very professional and I know I was given top notch treatment at this office. I will be returning in a few weeks for a cleaning and checkup. Visiting this office is completely worth the drive downtown because I know I will receive wonderful care. I highly recommend this dental office for all off your dental needs. The staff is gracious and they all work together to efficiently take care of your dental needs in the finest way possible. I highly recommend Michigan Avenue Dental Associates!
