Patient Reviews


“I was referred to Dr. Barrack’s office for an extraction and implant. I was extremely anxious and they did everything they could to make me feel comfortable. The office is professional, clean and has good mojo. I felt comfortable that I was in the right place. The experience was the best that it could be and I am confident that I will have a good result.”
“Never ceased to be amazed by the quality of care and professionalism of this practice”
“One of the things I always notice at any business establishment is how the employees relate to each other. The folks in this office are always cheery and seem to get along so well with each other. That makes it a very pleasant environment when you’re about to get your teeth hammered out. And, Dr. Barack made the experience quite pleasant as well as his assistants did. A headset with music, a gentle and well planned numbing protocol made this procedure painless. I had two teeth pulled, bone grafts and a post put in which although exhausting, was a piece of cake. I also visit this office for my periodontal maintenance every 8 months and the hygienists are fabulous”

“This is a top notch practice! I needed a tooth extracted and an implant inserted. I have had implants performed by another dentist, but I was awed by the care, concern and expertise demonstrated by the multiple staff who participated in my procedure at Dr. Barack’s. I will NEVER go anywhere else for this dental work. I am so glad that I left my prior oral surgeon and took a chance on Dr. Barack.”

“Dr. Barack is a great doc. No matter how busy his office is, he always creates time for your questions and concerns. His staff is very professional and friendly. The office is run the most efficiently I have ever seen. I wish other businesses ran as tight a ship as he does. I highly recommend this office!”

“Professional, courteous, and friendly. Dr. David Barack is the real deal, not just a Dentist but someone who understands his craft and excels at what he does.
His office cares for you and makes certain everything is done right from beginning to professional follow through.
When you take a free water tell Dr. Barack Uncle Louie sent you for a special treat. He will have no idea what you are talking about if you are the first to do this “

“If anyone out there needs periodontal work, this is the place to go. They are professional, informative, and just plain nice people. My daughter had a tooth implant and the pain management was so good, far different than her experience at another place with her wisdom teeth. In addition, there are different payment options and the office is willing to work with you to come up with a payment plan. My daughter and I are both very pleased. Although we hope to not have occasion to see Dr. Barack after my daughter’s treatment is complete, if we need work done we will not be scared at all because they do everything possible to keep you comfortable.”

“I had gum surgery last week with Dr. Barack, and I just want to say what a wonderful experience it was. From the moment I sat in the chair, everyone was so kind and considerate. I get anxiety when I have any kind of procedure, especially when it has to do with my mouth being frozen. I have a fear that I won’t be able to swallow. Dr. Barack’s staff was very careful to only numb my gums and made sure that my tongue and throat were suctioned so no numbing medication came near the area. I never felt bad about being anxious. So far, I am healing quite nicely and am expected to have a full recovery. I would highly recommended Dr. Barack and his staff!”

“Dr Barack and his staff offer the best professional dental care I have experienced. I just had my first implant so understandably was very nervous. What makes them different?

They get to know you as a person so they see beyond the patient. They explain the procedure in layman’s terms and take time to answer questions. They are friendly and reassuring. They call afterwards to make sure you are doing okay and answer any questions you may have forgotten to ask.

Their approach went above and beyond my expectations and I would recommend them in a heartbeat.”

“Dr. Barack & Staff, Thank you so much for the fine job you all have done making what could have been an unpleasant experience “a walk in the park”! Although I am not ready to sign up to do it again, I am happy to refer anyone to your practice. Your professionalism, friendliness and attentive approach to my well-being is much appreciated.”

“Now that my implant surgery is complete, I want to officially thank Dr. Barack for not causing me any pain that I had contemplated prior to starting the treatment. It was utterly painless and I am so pleased with my implants, your work is faultless. Not only was it painless, it was also quick and I have never looked back. I only wish I had had them sooner.”

“My father had his implant planning appointment at Old Orchard Periodontics. They were exceptionally kind and accommodating of his mobility challenges. They accomplished all the necessary diagnostic exams professionally and quickly, keeping him comfortable.  They explained his options clearly and allowed for decision making without pressure.  We’re so excited to be working with Dr Barack‘s office.  Highly recommend!”

 “Follow up appt to complete implant procedure yesterday was seamless and relatively pain free. Truth be told, the worst part was overcoming my gag reflex during the X-rays! I’m also grateful for the coordination in care between Dr. Gupta and my family dentist, Dr. Oleari of Winnetka Dental Associates.

“True compassionate professionals all the way around. And I appreciated Dr. Gupta checking in on me after hours last night at home! Very impressed with Dr. Gupta and his staff. They run a very efficient operation! He truly listens and makes recommendations without being “preachy” or pushy. I have total confidence in his professionalism and care.”
Vicki Woodward
 “Two words. Meticulous and professional! I have never been to a practice where every person you interact with is the consummate professional. And Dr. Barack sets the tone for it all. I would not trust my teeth except for him.”

 “Everyone in this office is very professional. I found their work outstanding and highly recommend them. Dr. Barak takes time to explain the work and listens to to your questions. He really cares about his patients. He makes sure to follow-up to see that everything is healing correctly. Dr. Barak is very precise and his dental work is excellent. He lectures to other professionals and is noted as outstanding in his field. I am lucky to find Dr. Barak. I highly recommend him. I am a very satisfied patient.”

 “The receptionist, hygienist, office manager and Dr Barack were all very courteous, informative and thorough during my consultation appointment on September 28th. And they answered all of my questions and concerns. As a result, I’ve decided to have my dental implant done at Old Orchard Periodontal Center.”
Kathleen Van Kirk
 “I’ve been with Dr. Barack for the last five years or so. He’s ultra professional in his work and approach. Surely, he has hands of gold when working with a patient. But most important, he truly cares about one’s well being, how you feel and helps relieve any stress or anxiousness that might occur while in the chair. If I could give his rating a sixth star, I would.”
Brad Kaste

 “From the moment I arrived, I was treated with warmth and professionalism. The front office staff was friendly, welcoming, and efficient. The office is a place of calm and serenity, starting with the peaceful deep-sea video in the reception area. Once in the examination room, Alyssa gave me a comprehensive explanation of my diagnosis and treatment plan, and invited and answered all questions. Dr. Barack, likewise, encouraged questions and gave thoughtful, expert responses. His demeanor was reassuring and calming. For the procedure, he was joined by Whitney who also exhibited professionalism and confidence. I felt that I was in the best of hands. The procedure was painless and relatively quick. My post-op has been pain-free and uneventful. I cannot recommend Dr Barack highly enough.”
Deborah Cogan
 “As a long time patient I can enthusiastically recommend this practice. The entire team is warm, engaging and thoroughly professional. They really go out of their way to make you feel comfortable—from the beautiful decor to the ambient music and the evident camaraderie the staff enjoys. Naturally I was a little apprehensive about coming in for a routine cleaning during the Covid crisis but the extensive safety procedures they have put in place completely reassured me.”

 “My first experience with a periodontist was at another location in Skokie that my dentist had referred me to. They spent no more than 20 minutes on my consultation before telling me that I needed $8,000 worth of grafting to repair my receding gums. Due to cost and the amount that I was quoted, I decided that I wanted to get a second opinion. One of my family members recommended Old Orchard Periodontics and I am so glad that I chose to go here. Alyssa was absolutely amazing. She was so thorough and answered all of the questions that I had. She explained what causes gum recession and how it can be repaired. She showed me how I should be brushing to prevent injury to the gums and recommended that I get a water pick. She took photos of my mouth and measured my gums and areas of inflammation. They were able to determine that I have pockets of gum area that extend down to 7mm in some areas and that a regular tooth cleaning at the dentist only gets down to 5mm so they recommended that I have a deep cleaning that involves numbing the gums to be able to address the inflammation that can be causing some of the recession. Once that inflammation is under control then some areas of the gum line may tighten back up so we can reevaluate to see where I actually need grafting and if some areas can just be monitored. I really appreciate this slow approach and I feel like this is the way it should be handled. My consultation took almost 2 hours and I really appreciated all of the time that was spent to inform me and evaluate my case. I highly recommend scheduling a consult here if your dentist recommends you to see a periodontist.”
