Kirk Family dentistry

2933 Kirk Road, Suite 101, Aurora, IL | 630-499-1800


Maggie G. | "[The dentist and hygienest were] so kind, helpful, and awesome with my kiddos! Their first visits and they left happy as can be!"

Heidi H. | "Dr. Kapadia is knowledgeable and lets you know your options and what would be recommended." 

Christen G. | "My kids love everyone there, and they have a kids section in the waiting area where they can watch Netflix while they wait. It takes away some of the nervousness!"

Keri L. | "Dr. Kapadia and her staff are so welcoming! The office is incredibly organized. Dr. Kapadia explains things thoroughly in a down to earth way and is totally relatable mom to mom! When I told her my mom guilt for my daughter having a few cavities, Dr. Kapadia shot that right down, explained it was normal and why."


mccall family dentistry

407 Williamsburg Ave, Geneva, IL | (630) 232-9620


Ivette B. | "[Our whole family] can be in the same office. The kids like the staff, I love the staff, and Dr. Ryan is so approachable and helpful."

Tina B. | "Our kids and I have seen both Dr. Ryan and Dr. Jim. The televisions [that are above the dental chair allow you to watch something while you are getting work done]. The kids' treasure chest is a nice touch but the entire staff is warm and friendly. They are great!."

Meghan R. | "It’s super convenient because our whole family can go [to the same dentist]. The staff are all great with kids! Kids actually love going to the dentist!"


geneva family dental

2631 Williamsburg Avenue, Suite 201, Geneva, IL | (630) 262-1055


Sarah R. | "It is a female-owned and operated business, and every single person I have been seen by- dentists, hygienists, office staff- are all incredibly sweet and warm. Also, if anyone is looking for Zoom Whitening, they are hundreds below the average cost."

Amy S. | "Dr. Amanda Thornton Morken is a local mom and grew up in St. Charles!"


Krizek Dental PC

19 S. 4th Street, Geneva, IL | (630) 232-0044


Ann S. | "My whole family has seen Dr. Krizek in Geneva for the last few years. He’s been very thorough with any issues we’ve had and very understanding of my little guy being anxious for his first checkup. I’ve always been welcome to come back to the exam area with my kids until my older kids decided on their own they were ready to go alone. I know there are some practices that discourage parents coming in, and I’m just not comfortable with that until they’re older." 


elliff dental

1912 W. Wilson Street, Batavia, IL | (630) 482-7200


Dana E. | "They are always very quick to get us in and out (not in a bad way but super awesome when I have two busy boys). Also Dr. Elliff has three kids of his own, so he explains everything in a kid-friendly way and is super patient. They also do a lot for BatFest in Batavia and that’s one of our favorite events!"

Tabitha J. | "Amazing at explaining and making sure the child (and adults) are comfortable. Never had a problem getting in!"


second street dental

115 S. 2nd Street, St. Charles, IL | (630) 343-5822


Katharine P. | "We FINALLY got ourselves dental insurance this last winter and needed to find a local dentist. Took myself and my two kids, 2 and 4, and they were awesome each time we went! The staff was so welcoming, so thorough, and Dr. Paterno was great with the kids. They also didn’t try to push any unnecessary procedures. Very happy with them!"

St. Charles Dental

2455 Dean Street, Suite E, St. Charles, IL | (630) 377-7760


Christina G. | "Such an amazing office! For the adults, they offer paraffin hand waxes before you get your teeth cleaned. If you have kids, ask for Andrea to be your hygienist! She's a wonderful mama to 5 kids herself and is exceptionally patient with littles who may have a hard time. Treasure chest at the end too, of course!"
