I never been to the dentist and I'll admit that I was curious and intimidated. The thought of going to the dentist could be just horrifying, i kept my mind open and I just called in and they scheduled me within a week, the first time I got there, they did a whole bunch of things, but all I could do is put my trust in them, after all, they know what they are doing. The visit went really well, I loved the attention to detail. They are all really nice people, from the people on the front desk to the doctors in the back. They are all very professional and really good at what they do. I would recommend them to any one that is looking for a dentist office. Also, the coolest thing about it is; if you have an appointment at 10am it won't be long until they take care of you. Once you are there, they do what they have to get done on your teeth, explain what's gonna happen, and you soon will be out. I will go there in the future because their work ethic is fantastic! read more

I called them due to a dental emergency, and they were able to take me later that day. Once I got there they treated me like I had been going there for years, which was great. I loved the fact that they spell out the prices and what work is needed all up-front, so you know how much you have to pay out-of-pocket, and how much your insurance covers. I've never had a dentist office do that for me before. I will definitely be coming back here.read more

Highly recommended! read more

I was terrified to go to the dental office, SERIOUSLY!!! Walking in to Tru Family Dental, was a completely new experience one that changed my life!I had a obvious missing front tooth that made me very self conscious so much so I stop dating and found it very hard to communicate with my own clients. Actually quite devastating to my life.Walking in I met the friendly hard working office manager and her staff, each one just as professional and kind as the last. I was taken care of in two sittings.Went out on my first date in 7 months and had a wonderful time!!! Thank you for giving me back my life!!!read more

Hands down the best dental experience I've EVER had, even for a new patient with severe anxiety!I am relatively new to the area and was looking for a dentist to treat a cracked tooth with a missing filling, as well as to (hopefully) treat and maintain my teeth with regular care. Having had bad experiences with dentists and oral surgeons in the past, I was apprehensive, but decided to give this place a try - and I'm so glad I did. I had my cracked tooth extracted as well as multiple large multi-surface fillings redone, and the doctor was speedy while still taking the time to reassure me and communicate what she was doing. All the staff was friendly and extremely accommodating, including handling billing and future scheduling. You could knock me over with a feather, but I've never been able to say that I'm not dreading going to the dentist again! Really, if you are looking for a dentist, I urge you to check this place out. This is a dental business done right, and they deserve every ounce of business they get.read more

We obviously don’t love going to the dentist. It’s not like a vacation or a shopping spree but it’s one of those things that need to be done! I have been putting my smile aside for some time now due to life situations and lack of money! I had a dentist before but his staff was awful and I was in search of a new dentist. Someone with a great staff and knows what they are doing! I found Dr. Thomas through my network and I went into her office needing a lot of work done! I am so happy I found her office!!! Super clean office! Friendly staff! Dr. Thomas — amazing dentist! Friendly. Explains everything! Shows you what needs to be done and works a plan for your dental needs. I honestly wouldn’t go anywhere else. I had a root canal done and I was amazed by her work! No pain! I have recommended her office to family and friends who will be making an appointment in the near future. I wish they had payment plans so I could get more work done. But I will just have to wait (my own fault) Other than that, five stars! You won’t regret it. It might not be a vacation ... but as far as dentists go .. they are great!read more

I have been fearful and hurt by Dentists in the past. I've found Tru Family Dental in Palos and have been a patient for many years now. I must say after Dr. Susan Thomas joined the team. I no longer am fearful. I've had major work done several times. Dr. Thomas is excellent at what she does. I don't feel the shots she administers. I've never felt any pain whatsoever during a procedure. She can perform dental work that in the past I would need a referral for. I adore her and the entire team. Jennifer the Office Manager is easy to talk to and treats you as a friend. Renee my hygienist is just as wonderful. I would request her for your cleaning! There are so many wonderful things I can say about this Dental Office. Even the Dental assistants make you feel at home.What Means The Most Is I Feel Like They Are Family to Me and Treat Me as If I am Family as Well. They care. That is a quality these days that is hard to find.Thank You for all you've ever done for me and continue to do. ❤Christina Stahr & Familyread more

Dr. Thomas is the best dentist in Chicago!!! If you live in the area I definitely recommend you coming here for all your dental visits. He is very intelligent, precise, detailed, and professional with his work.
13:59 26 Feb 20
I highly recommend Tru Family Dental and here is why!I have a really bad phobia of needles to a point where i would push doctors out the way and run out of the dentist when I would see a needle. (NOT JOKING) I was super nervous walking in but the minute I walked in, the vibes from the ladies in the front desk made me feel comfortable. They were all super nice and fast workers. I actually didn’t wait long at all for my first time there. They are super helpful, understanding and actually there for YOU! not a lot of doctors understand that. I would go and explain my fears of needles to doctors in “order top of the line dentist” that i get referred by and they will still try to force a needle in my mouth but then get mad when I would stop them. Not only did they fix my chipped root canal but NO NEEDLES WERE NEEDED! They explained everything to me before it happened and provided me with options. (They put a temporary crown) I was in shocked how I didn’t feel not one ounce of pain! I’ve never been so happy with a dentist in my entire life.Not only did I make them my primary doctor but I’m also going to bring my son here for now on. Thank you EVERYONE at Tru Family dentist that made my day. I wasn’t expecting this at all but all dentist offices should be more understanding like Tru Family Dentist!read more

19:26 23 May 18
The office staff is very efficient and friendly. My dental hygenist was super nice and took time to explain things to me. The dentist, on the other hand, was a little lacking in social skills, but I'm satisfied with my work.Update: I went in for a toothache. I have pretty good teeth, but my molars are prone to cavities. The dentist for my first visit drilled a tooth that I had no pain or problem with and looked fine to me, then he said I had to come back to have 2 more done. In the mean time, I started having severe pain in the tooth he drilled. At my second visit I requested a different dentist. The second dentist said that the tooth had been drilled too close to the nerve and that one of the other teeth I supposedly also had a cavity in was completely healthy. All this happened over a year ago and unfortunately I don't remember either of the dentist's names, only that the first one was an older white man and the second was a younger Asian man. I won't be going back to this office for dental work.read more

Do not go I repeat your teeth will be damaged. Went in for a filing and now needing a root canal. Horrible! Billing was paid by insurance I paid deductible and still receive bills. Biling did not have a clue. Reception are rude I called to say I will be a few minutes late and sure enough they would move my appointment whatever happened to a grace period? I repeat don’t go.

I love this place! Very professional with a strong personal touch. Dr Yang and the staff are fantastic. An added bonus for me is they are a high tech office and you can get all reminders and make changes right on your smartphone. Best dental care in town. No doubt.
My kids and I have been going here for our dental care for years. It is always a great experience. I highly recommend Dr. Hutnik and his staff.
Tru Family Dental is filled with experienced, patient and kind providers! They are welcoming and professional! I trust them with the dental care of my children and will continue to recommend them as providers.
Friendly people, Aaron makes the visit less of a stress. He is very nice and professional, they all are. Thank you Tru Family Dental!!
