What People Say About Dr. Atcha And His Team

I came to the center to get my wisdom teeth taken out. I only had three, so I got three wisdom teeth out under sedation.

Sedation was good, I don’t remember anything. I was just asleep and it was fine. I woke up and I didn’t remember anything.

I was nervous because I had never had an IV before but I don’t remember even getting the IV because I had a pill that morning to make me less nervous.

The staff here is really good at the center, everybody’s really nice and they make you comfortable and Dr Atcha was really good. He explained everything to me before it happened and what he was going to do, and then after he told me that everything looked good. I would recommend Dr Atcha, I have actually, I tell a lot of my friends to come here to get their wisdom teeth out.

Amanda Dernulc

Actually when I came to Dr Atcha I came because of my wife. She had finished her complete work up; I’m not too good on dentists and because she had so much success that’s why I came here. I chose the option of having all of the teeth in the upper part of my mouth removed. There was a partial there already and there were a couple of caps in the front, so we decided that that was the option that I would take. I’d only have one piece that I would have to worry about and that it would be put in with a screw-type post. It would be permanent and it would be matched to my lower teeth which are actually mine, and they would make it look like it was actually there for a long, long time.

I did not feel any of the extractions. When I actually woke up they were just finishing up with the stitching and I didn’t even know that. They put some gauze in and told me to come back the next day and the next day they started putting in the material to create the temporary and that was pretty much it. I’ll be honest with you, I never felt hardly anything and I don’t like dentists so they did a great job!

I’ve been through this before, I’ve had some other dental things and in a lot of the dentists that I went to when I was in the service and where I worked where they made you go to that particular dentist, I never was comfortable, but this was excellent. The people that worked on me made me feel safe and I felt comfortable.

Whatever they did, it works because I had no pain and the good thing about it is that they gave me prescriptions for pain pills which I still have at home on the table, I have not used them, I did not need them, there was no pain when I was done.

After my wife and I have come here Dyer Family Dentistry is my guy now, and if someone told me they needed to go someplace I would tell them to come here.

Larry Millar

It’s a very sensitive issue for me because I have been fighting all my life. It’s been a war that I’ve been fighting since I was nine years old. Generally it was because of the work I always had to have done, I would go and do it but I didn’t like it.

When I came into Dr Atcha I was really unhappy with my teeth. My confidence level, everything, was just ‘in the tank?so to speak and I just wanted something done. I was really tired of the way I had a crooked smile. It was just depressing to me.

When he explained that I would have permanent teeth, I would never have to take these out, I was a very happy person. I can’t even explain it to you what it has done for me.

I was awake but I didn’t feel anything, they talked to me and asked me to do certain things and I could respond to them, but I didn’t feel anything, even afterwards. It was amazing.

I do feel Dr Atcha is different from other dentists because there’s just a comfort level that I don’t feel with other dentists. You don’t go into the chair and feel all tensed up, it doesn’t make you scared to come in, it really doesn’t. I would highly recommend Dr. Atcha. If you are looking to do implants you should absolutely see him because I really lucked out when I found him. I love my teeth Dr Atcha!

Eileen Edmisten

Last August, of 2008, I experienced a severe pain in my upper left jaw and so I made that call. I found them in the phone book and they took emergency cases. They took me in that morning and examined me thoroughly and saw where I had a problem with my tooth and told me what I needed to have done to get my mouth healthy so that’s when I started.

I had gone to other dentists in my entire childhood and then my young adult life. The way that other dentists treated me was not like when I came to Dyer. I have to admit I hadn’t been to the dentist for at least 25 years before I found this group. They treat you so well, other dentists I’ve found to, I can’t explain the difference but I felt like I was important to them.

I have a high tolerance to pain and I didn’t want to be put under so they did Novacane and they were just excellent in how they administered it and I didn’t really feel anything in every visit that I came.

The total complete work I had were three root canals, six crowns, one implant, removal of all of my metal fillings and replacing with a resin, and two extractions.

All the people make me feel so important and have persuaded me, or not persuaded me but taught me, that good dental health is very important and I am going to keep all my appointments and return every six months because it’s important to me. I feel healthy, my teeth look good and I’m just very happy with them.

Helen Millar

I had what’s called dental implants; it started because I had a full upper denture and that full upper denture, by using the adhesive type material that was used to keep it from falling out when you eat, was making me sick to my stomach and I couldn’t eat. And so I came to Dr Atcha and went through a process of looking at what could be done. From that we sat down and went through a program and from there my wife and I decided that this would be the best thing for me to do. In the whole process there was no pain. I went home and I was pain free, I took Advil and Tylenol the way it was prescribed and it feels more like your natural teeth. There is no plate up in the top of the roof; it is basically regular like your teeth. That is a real big help when it comes to eating, tasting your food and so forth.

I like the work that Dr Atcha and his staff do; I like their kindness, their courtesy. They greet you when you come in the door; they know the patients by name. I would recommend them to any person that is having dental problems.

Robert Johnson

I’d been thinking about doing this procedure for quite a while, actually probably for a couple of years. Several things sort of came through my mind, one was the cost factor and the other was just something that was in the back of my head, you know, dentists and things that you want to try to avoid. However those fears were all allayed and the only thing I wish I’d done would probably have been to make the decision to have the procedure done earlier.

I haven’t had much dental work done for the last 30 years and between that time and now dentistry has improved so much.

My approach to it was quality of life. I’m not that old and I’m going to be around for a while and the dentures that I had in my mouth were terrible, they were awful, so I just made the decision this is it, I’ve got to do something. The thing that really caught me was just coming into this office for the first time. There’s a sense that you get that people here seem to really enjoy what they’re doing.

I can’t talk about pain or discomfort because there really wasn’t any. Dr Atcha said you won’t remember the procedure and I don’t remember the procedure.

It’s an unbelievable thing for me having gone through dentures for nearly 30 years that were absolutely horrendous. Why I waited this long I will not to this day know but all I can say is thank goodness I did it.

It’s not a financial burden. The way we have set up our payment, actually what I’m paying per month is worth what I’m getting today. Being able to eat, being able to taste food, just feeling comfortable about myself in a way that I haven’t felt for a long time.

I would definitely recommend Dr Atcha to any person needing dental work, but most especially from my experience anyone needing work done with dentures.

Lowe

For years I’d been meditating over implants and six to eight years ago my regular dentist told me that I didn’t want to do this because of the time involved and the procedure involved and the pain involved. I can convince you I had none of the above, it has been perfect.

Dr Atcha’s office, as far as pain goes, absolutely nothing, not a thing, nothing. I knew I was going to get sedated but I really didn’t know when I was sedated until after it was over and done with. It was remarkable; it was an experience like I’d never had before. Anybody knows you go there really groggy and all that nonsense, but here it’s not that way at all. You’re a little unstable after sedation but prior to that there is nothing, it’s that quick, it’s that fast.

I had no pain; I had no nothing afterwards or prior to all the times that I’ve been here with the implants.

Eating is a treat again. I can actually bite into something and not have my dentures slip and fall out or come down on my gums and tear my mouth apart. Eating is absolutely terrific with dental implants, absolutely terrific.

I have many friends of mine that I have talked about Dr Atcha to, whether or not he knows about it, but I have done so. With my family I have four members in my family alone that are considering it.

He gave me confidence. His ability to do what he is going to do, he gave me that confidence. I felt confident and secure with him.

These dental implants are the second best thing God ever gave a person.

Kenneth Matthews

I had upper dentures put in, implants, and the whole top redone and it was wonderful, it came out wonderful. Very comfortable, easy procedure, very relaxing, I found the perfect dentist.

Dr Atcha is a very good dentist for me. He worked with me, seeing that I was nervous, needing a lot of dental work done. I had some done and knew that the procedure that I needed done would be the right thing for me and he worked very well for me to get it done.

My implants have turned out wonderful, they’re very comfortable. I can eat properly now, I smile without hesitation, I laugh without hesitation now.

I went so long without good teeth that I didn’t know what it felt like to have a full mouth of teeth and be comfortable for a good 20 years.

They’re like regular teeth, you really can’t tell the difference. There’s no movement, they’re comfortable and cleaning is nice. You just go right back to your old routine, I can eat corn, I can eat apples; it’s great.

Don’t wait to take care of work that is needed in your mouth for as long as I did. He will do what is necessary and make you comfortable and take any route that you want to have done to make you comfortable and healthy. That’s what he has done for me, 100%.

Mary Ann Shirey

I used to wear an upper partial and I had some missing teeth on my upper right side. My teeth were kind of big and crooked and I would always hide my smile.

I had teeth in a day, my total upper teeth. I came in here early one morning, about 8 o’clock or so and I met with Dr Atcha and I was sedated and all of my upper teeth were totally extracted. By the time I woke up and walked out of here I had teeth.

I was afraid to go to the dentist because I had had a lot of bad experiences. I think that’s why I just kept putting it off for so many years.

When I first came to visit with Dr Atcha I was a bit nervous at first, I really was, but after speaking with him and meeting part of his staff I felt comfortable. That’s what was more convincing for me to go ahead and have my work done here with Dr Atcha.

For me it was fabulous to have new teeth because my upper teeth were all crooked and deteriorated, I was always so afraid to go to a dentist.

When I came here for my procedure that morning I knew that I was going to be sedated, but to be realistic I don’t really recall. It was just that simple I guess, and painless for me. I didn’t feel a thing, I felt fabulous, I felt like a new person, I really, really did.

My husband loves my teeth, my new smile, my new teeth. I think he’s a lot happier knowing that I’m happier also, so we’re both happy, very happy.

I would recommend Dr Atcha to my friends, to my family, to strangers, to anyone that needs special care with their teeth.

Stinson

My history of what brought me to having bad teeth all on the top was that I had blunt trauma to the top teeth twice in my life. Once I hit the bar of a rollercoaster when it snapped back, and then another time I was riding my bike being chased by my brother and my foot slipped off the pedal and the bar to the handlebars hit me in the mouth, so I always had to deal with loose teeth and there’s all kind of problems with loose teeth.

I had five implants a year ago at Christmas time. Mine are the removable implants so I take them out at night which in my case is good because I tend to clench my teeth when I sleep.

I came to Dr Atcha’s office by way of advertisement. I loved the staff immediately. When you call this office and they know who you are just by saying your first name you just feel this overwhelming feeling of family and concern and compassion.

As soon as my teeth were in the process of getting changed, like I said the implants worked, everything started to feel like normal, like people that smile all the time. I’m known for my smile but once your teeth start showing their wears you start kind of hiding your mouth with your lips. I didn’t have to anymore. I felt a whole new world open for me, I feel like smiling all the time and when you smile at even a stranger, they smile back at you and that’s a good part of the world that you’re touching when you touch the sentimentality that’s involved in everybody’s life.

The last ones to get fixed were the bottoms and they had everything ready for me yesterday and I went out and chewed food like I’m supposed to chew food.

I’m in the right place at the right time getting the right thing done for the rest of my life. They put them on and I’ve been smiling ever since. I love to smile; now I have the mouth to smile with.

Mary Ann Stroymeyer

I am getting implants. I’m 80 years old and I have some health issues. I think normally they pull the teeth, put the implants right in and you have the new teeth. However my bones are soft, I have some heart problems and some blood problems, so I have the implants in at the top and they have to heal well and I think that’s very good to do it slowly so that I have no trouble down the road, so I’m not unhappy about that. The bottom half will be done next month and I’m looking forward to that. What I’m wearing right now is a temporary plate until the real teeth are put in, and I had a compliment just the other day, ‘boy it’s a good thing you’re going for the implants because those teeth look so natural.?I didn’t want to say these aren’t even the real ones, they’ll look even better I’m sure.

I think Dr Atcha is always looking for the best way and the safest way to do the best job he can for you. Actually I think there may be dentists who would have rushed this process, I’m relieved that he’s taking my health into consideration and watching out for me the way he is.

Everyone in here, all of the staff, are very much like he is. They’re dedicated to making you feel comfortable and not afraid, there’s nothing to be afraid of here. I can remember when my mother got false teeth, her mouth was swollen and miserable looking for weeks. I didn’t have that, there was very little swelling. I had these teeth put right in and I could eat soft foods right away.

I took a pill to relax me before I came in that morning. They put a needle in my hand and that’s the last thing I remember until I woke up.

I would recommend Dr Atcha, and also all his workers to anyone. There’s the man that does the moulds for the teeth, Alex, he’s a wonder, and Jen, the young lady that assists Dr Atcha is just a dream girl too. You couldn’t ask for anyone better.

I’ve had compliments on what’s been done so far. I just think he’s a very exceptional dentist.

Mary Baranowski

When I came to Dr Atcha he said there is something I can do for you so I left here with some kind of hope. I wasn’t looking for anymore partials because I did have partials so I had a cosmetic denture. It’s not just a regular denture; it’s a cosmetic design especially for me.

I’d never had this kind of work done before so I was kind of leery but when I came in they were very nice. The staff is very nice and Dr Atcha is very nice, they made me feel very comfortable. It’s not a scary atmosphere; it’s a very pleasant atmosphere, a very comfortable atmosphere. I didn’t think I was going to get this type of care, they’re always there for me when I call them, and I can call them anytime.

I’ve had sedation in the past and I had more idea what sedation is, but they had a two step program for sedation and now I can see why they did it. It was for people not to be upset the night before the surgery or be upset before the surgery. I had medication the night before and medication in the morning, then when I came in I’ll be honest with you, I don’t remember anything. They walked me in, they had an escort to be present for me which was my son, and all I remember was Dr Atcha came and greeted me and asked me how I was feeling and looked at my hand and the next thing I knew I was done.

I honestly had no pain through this oral surgery.

All my coworkers said it’s a new you because I had my smile back. They told me I looked much younger, they didn’t want to insult me by saying you do much younger. I eat better, I smile with more confidence, I really do, I have more confidence. The staff here made me feel more confident; when I walked in they told me to smile.

Dr Atcha did give me hope, he gave me hope.

Anna Albano

Everyone I have come into contact with in the practice is absolutely top-notch!

Karen Hayse

I've neglected going to the dentist out of fear. Today was my second visit and I had no fear at all. I felt everyone at Dyer Family Dentistry was there to help me and had my best interest at heart. I'm having a little cosmetic work done, too; and I could feel everyone there was excited for me and my appearance would be enhanced.

Debbie Reilly

I was impressed with the technology being utilized during my examination and with the level of competence Dr. Atcha displayed during the entire process. I was very comfortable with all aspects of my experience. Thank you for the respect that you showed me as a patient.

John Saraceno

Going to the dentist was one of the hardest appointments for me to make. This dental office has removed all of my former fears of being seen and treated by a dentist. Thank you!

LaShonne Randolph

Everyone at the office was very pleasant and professional. I would highly recommend your office to others.

Tiffany Douglas

I am a "former" reluctant patient. Now, with each visit, I am more comfortable going for dental care. This is a big step for me! I am very pleased with the care and compassion I receive from Dr. Atcha and the staff at your practice. Cannot think of any needed improvement. Thank you!"

"P.S. Thanks again for changing that "goopy" stuff amt for impressions. Whew! What a relief! :o)

Mary Wall

I am very pleased with the ease of getting in promptly and being able to be seen by your office. Everyone was very nice and procedures were explained thoroughly. I was pleased with my visit. Thank you.

Rose C.

Thank you so much for all of the kindness all of you showed me! Also I appreciate Dr. Kapadia calling me the next day to make sure I was doing ok, I have never had a dentist do that before and it means a lot!

Prior to my visit to the Dyer Family Dentistry, I wouldn't go to the dentist. I hadn't been to the dentist in over five years because five years ago, I became an adult and my mom stopped forcing me to go. I have no phobias. I can jump from an airplane, traverse the worse parts of Chicago without looking over my shoulder; to put it mildly, I'm not afraid of anything, except the dentist. With fear comes anxiety, and I had the worst. I've fainted at the dentist office. I've gotten sick. I hyperventilated. My heart rate has scared healthcare professionals. I uncontrollably shook. I cried. I had top notch anxiety attacks. It got so bad that the thought of the dentist or the sight of an office made me slip into apprehension. My past dentists didn't like me either. When I was younger, I'd kick, scream, bite, and scratch. As an adult, I'd make appointments only to cancel them. In fact, I'm not allowed to go to two dentist offices because I've canceled on them so many times.

But time took its toll and my smile became noticeably deteriorated. My mother begged me to call a dentist for almost a year. Then finally, she found Dr. Atcha and the Dyer Family Dentistry. I really wanted to get my teeth fixed, but every time I've been to the dentist, my anxiety made it near impossible to last a full visit. The team at Dyer Family Dentistry did not only understand my anxiety, but they did absolutely everything in their power to help me get my teeth fixed. I had to have over $16,000 dollars of work done because of my poor care of my teeth, and they were able to help me through it. They helped me through the long day full surgeries with amazing amenities and sedation. They treated me like a guest in their home and never let me feel scared or feel pain. I wasn't a file or an HMO number. I was Elizabeth, and I never felt anything different.

I just finished my last appointment today and looking at my long journey from the first appointment to the last, they have helped me through my fear of the dentist. I can make appointments on my own without the last minute ditch effort or without canceling them. I can sit in the dentist chair without feeling dizzy. I can even take a drill to a tooth without novacaine or any other form of sedation. I don't have my anxiety attacks anymore. I don't think I could have done this without them, and now I'm on my way back to building healthy teeth. Before this, I was ready to let all my teeth fall out. Now I have a real smile that I can thank Dr. Atcha and his team for. Without them, I'd have holes in my teeth and impractical anxiety. My thanks can never be enumerated in any amount of words.

Elizabeth Bodeker

Everyone at DFD is fantastic. There is not much harder for me to accomplish then to get dental work done. Especially with the shape I was in. Three names specifically stick out. Dr. Atcha is great and extremely pleasant. I have worked hard to make the dentist the bad guy in my head. Dr. Atcha changed that all around. Alessa is the best dental hygienist I have ever seen, and at the age of 45 that has been a few. Finally, the person that really made me feel that DFD is the place for me. Karen is incredible. I don't think anyone could pretend to care that well. She really cares and she made me feel so comfortable. She, more than anyone, made me feel like I not only found a place to go to the dentist, but I made a friend.

Derek

I would just like to say thank you to Dr. Kapadia and all the staff at Dyer Family Dentistry! Everyone is beyond nice and friendly. I heard a commercial on the radio and thought "why not try a new dentist?" I needed to get a cavity filled (my first one ever). I ended up have many fillings filled. You have the best reception staff, and they give you so many options for scheduling.

Recently, I also had an accident at work. My two front teeth had been hit and needed to be replaced. I had an old crown and bad bonding on my two front teeth that was done years ago. I had a bike accident when I was 11 and my old dentist put a huge crown in, he said I would grow into it. Well I never grew into it and it had discolored. I was so self-conscious about them that I would even cover my smile with my hand. I was scared that I was not going to look the same. When I came in Alice took care of everything and I didn't have to worry about any workman's compensation problems. Thank you! Dr. Kapadia and her staff made me feel extremely comfortable. I had my teeth whitened, and they look great. Lindsy did a great job making sure I was comfortable and she even popped in a movie for me to watch. Everyone worked very hard to make my experience wonderful. I was even sent to the dental lab to get a custom color match for my new teeth. My new crown and veneer look wonderful. My co-workers joked that they need to get hurt so their teeth can look as good as mine. My mom noticed my teeth within 30 seconds of me walking in her door. It is a great feeling to smile again. I love my new, white, and cosmetic smile. Thank you again for all of your help.

Dear future patient, I am a new patient of Dyer Family Dentistry, and let me say “they are the most skilled dentist and dental assistants you will ever find? All of my life I had been insecure about my smile because of the spacing of my teeth. I had been searching and searching for a dentist who could solve this problem without having to deal with the agony of braces, but could find no one with an alternative solution. Well, one day I came across Dyer Family Dentistry on the internet, and I soon found out they had the answer to my problem.

"I had a very special event coming up in only two weeks, and even thou I knew it would probably not be enough time to change my smile I decided to call anyway. Well to my surprise, the very same day I called they got me in for a consultation, in which Dr. Atcha and Dr. Jasmine, along with their entire staff; immediately dedicated their concerns, time, and highly professional services to me. This meant so much to me as a new patient! And by the time of my event I had anew, beautiful, perfect smile, and a new found high self-esteem. It’s a miracle how a beautiful smile can change how you feel about yourself!

"My overall experience with Dyer Family Dentistry was amazing. There facility is clean, welcoming, and comfortable. Also, the entire staff is congenial, well-educated, highly skilled, and enthused about what they do. But most importantly, the staff at Dyer Family Dentistry is “genuinely?concerned about the wants, needs, and concerns of, not just me, but all of their patients.

"So if you’re considering Dyer Family Dentistry as your dental home, I highly recommend them! And, if you are not quite satisfied with your smile, from my own experience, I have the perfect solution: “Lumineers? So what are you waiting for? You’re worth it!

New (excited) patient.

My name is Sharon and I just wanted to write this in hopes it may help other patients like myself with their fear of Dentistry work. First to say I am one of the those people that have been very very scared and nervous of "Dentists" that I've actually have lost sleep the night before my appointment. Also, I have gone into panic attacks, almost passing out right in the dentist room. But I have to say now that with the patience, care and concern with the entire staff have helped me to relax a lot before and during my whole procedures. The Dr I saw was Dr. Joshi and he was kind, patient, caring and tender with me. Knowing my fears he was very supportive, talked with me before, during and after procedure that I became very relaxed and calm. I didn't even need any type of sedation or any gas to help me relax (which I usually do take at least the gas) and before I knew it my tooth was out and didn't feel any of it, I didn't even feet the shots to numb me. Dr. Joshi's bedside manner are very very good and relaxing and he made me feel so special and at ease. My experience here at Dyer Family Dentistry was the first positive time, I would suggest that If you like me to talk to staff and especially the Dr. you have so they know how to help you. The Dentist here are the best and very professional with their patients and will go out of their way to assist you. I would like to close by thanking the staff and to you Dr. Josh for your kind, gentle care etc helping for making my appoint a positive one. Keep up the good work.

My husband Dave had a emergency situation occur last year and we called Dyer Family Dental. They took him in as a new patient on Saturday which we greatly appreciated as he was in much pain. I then decided that I would try using your dental services and have been coming ever since. Everyone on the staff is positive, and very through. I also am appreciative of the evening hours! Thanks everyone!

Dear Dr. Atcha and Dyer Family Dentistry Associates,

"Thank you very much for your generous care package. The three MASSIVE boxes of candy were well received by the Marines and should keep everyone smiling for awhile! Even those of us that are training and dieting had to have a few pieces. Can’t let it go to waste right? We have been in Iraq for about a month and things are going well. Time is passing quickly, but our thoughts are still of home. Getting mail and packages from people like you really keeps our spirits up and we appreciate it. We hope all is well with you and your family and employees. Please pass on our thanks to those involved.

Best Wishes,

Ordinance Marines

I just want to say thank you very much for the very professional and personal manner in which you are conducting business!

From the time we walked into your office, being greeted by Lynn, and seeing the familiar face of Holly accompanied by a sweet spirit, continued on through with Amy (Beth), Deb, Alyssa and Kara, topping it off with the charisma of Dr. Atcha, our experience has been more wonderful; it’s been completely awesome!

I was further impressed with the notes of welcome in the mail and additionally, your innovative communications via e-mail! Thank you for taking time and effort into making our dental experiences pleasurable. We look forward to keeping our smiles healthy and happy!

KUDOS

I spoke to Holly when I called the referral dentist and I could actually see her smiling through the phone for she was so enthusiastic that I called. She gave me extensive details on financing and let me know that they offer this to everyone which made me feel that I was not alone in my quest to get a more beautiful smile. Her excitement for what the office had to offer really came through in her voice on the phone and it made me feel good about calling their office. I felt compelled to book my consultation appointment right then and I am happy that I did! Thanks!

A New Patient

Thank you for your “Cash for Candy?buy back program you made available to the community yesterday. As a patient, I appreciate your thinking of our troops, as well as promoting good dental health.

Our church had a “Trunk or Treat?night on October 31 with all of the candy being donated by our congregation. We served several hundred children, but still had a lot of candy left.

I dropped off 30lbs. yesterday and thank you for the $30 for our Children’s Ministry. Your gift will be put to good use. We still have candy available if you need more to send to the troops.

Thanks again for a “win, win?program for our troops, our community, and our church. Be sure to let us know if you plan to offer this program again.

Allen, Director of Ministries and Administration

First, I need to apologize for sending this so late. I came in on June 11th to have my teeth whitened. I was very, very nervous as my niece had the same procedure done a few weeks before me and told me it was really painful. Also, that was craze for me and I found myself rushing just to get there on time. Needless to say, I forgot to take ibuprofen and to bring my iPOD. ( I have very sensitive teeth) Well, I shouldn't have worried. Lindsey was the one who was whitening my teeth not only did she give me ibuprofen but she also let me listen to her very own iPOD. I was cold (I was wearing short) so she gave me a blanket! I have never been someplace where someone was so nice - especially a Dentist's office - she calmed my fears and I must say the entire experience was pain free! She was so nice and caring and I just wanted to say "Thank you so much" I will definitely recommend other people to get their teeth whitened by her! Also, I wanted to thank Karen for taking and sending my before and after pictures of my teeth! Thanks again!

Amy Beth:

Thank you so much for putting me at ease during my visit, you and the Holly who assisted you were both great! Thanks again!

On April 12th, 2007. Thursday you came to my rescue as I had a filling come out and you repaired it with a crown and my last visit April 26, 2007. My daughter-in-law found your place for me, she found a great place to go as everyone was caring and very polite.

Thank you from a 71 year old man.

Your staff is the BEST!

Dr. Atcha and his assistants are AWESOME!!! I finally found a dentist and dental staff that truly cares about their patients and the quality of work they perform!! I've already given your name out to family and friends. The only down side, is I wish you were a MetLife Provider so that all 7 of us could use your dental services :).

The nurses and the Doc (Dr. Atcha) were very attentive to my back molars nerves. I have an abnormal amount of nerve endings in one of my teeth and the Doc made sure that I was not going to feel any pain...Thanks! In one visit I had a crown replaced and two old fillings removed and replaced and within 1 1/2 hours. That is very important to me considering that I can't be away from my work too long. I would return to your dental practice for future treatment and I would definitely refer a friend to Dyer Family Dentistry.

Dear Dr. Atcha:

This past fall, I came to the Dyer Family Dentist with a throbbing toothache. I hadn’t been to a dentist for many years and didn’t look forward to this visit. Now I had to go, as the pain was getting worse day by day. I needed so much work done on my teeth that I was embarrassed to get started.

When I arrived for the appointment, I noticed how personable and professional everyone was. There was hardly any wait and everyone was very friendly. I was in and out of there in only about an hour. Dr. Atcha quickly took care of the toothache, and the pain was gone. They also took pictures and x-rays of my other teeth to determine what other work I needed to have done to get my mouth healthy again. It turned out that I needed to have a thorough cleaning, including scaling and whitening, 2 root canals, 2 cavities filled and three crowns put on. One root canal and crown was on a upper front tooth that was discolored. The new tooth, along with the whitening made an unbelievable difference in my smile.

I was amazed that I could go to the dentist 10 times in two months to have all this work done and not even have any pain. There was hardly even any discomfort.

It was so refreshing to find a group like yours who really care. The friendliness and professionalism at the Dyer Family Dentistry puts a person at ease and turns an appointment that I normally dread into something constructive and positive, and even makes it a pleasant experience.

Sincerely and Smiling,

Bill Clark

I could not be more grateful! After 10 years of extreme fear of dentists I had let my molars decay. All of them. My shame and fear left me feeling hopeless.

I would see the ads for your dentistry in the NW IN Times and after tow weeks of pain with an abscess I made the call. From the first phone call I’ve been ecstatic with your practice!

Peggy got me in the same day and Dr. Atcha removed two molars which brought immediate relief.

In five weeks, I’ve had eight molars removed in office. Dr. Atcha is very kind, gentle and informative and the support staff remarkable!

I have hope in saving the rest of my teeth and am excited about the partial plates that will complete my smile.

Dyer Family Dentistry filed all of my insurance papers and found 0% financing for the work beyond what my insurance would pay. I cannot thank all of you enough for what you have done for me. I will continue to tell everyone about your practice! Thank you again.

I would like to compliment one of your star employees. Who am I? Just a plain Jane guy, nobody special. Theresa seemed to be very knowledgeable at her job. She was very friendly, kind and did a great job on my broken tooth.

I suggested that she needed a big pay raise, but I guess if you paid her what she was worth, you could not afford her. Again, I was honored to have her work on my broken tooth, and she did a great job. Thank you again, Theresa.

R.P.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your advice and time you shared with me during my teeth whitening procedure. I’m sure you treat all your patients with as much care and attention as you showed me, but you sure made me feel extra special.

I’m very pleased with the results of my teeth. I appreciate all you did for me.

When I came in to see Dr. Atcha, I was missing several teeth on top and had a lower partial. I was unable to chew the foods I wanted to eat. I was eating what I could and not what I wanted too. Dr. Atcha was able to give me back my smile and my ability to eat. Dr. Atcha went over all my treatment options with me and made sure to take everything into consideration, so that I could make the right decision based on my wants and desires. I feel that I was in the right place, at the right time, getting the right thing done and this is going to last me for the rest of my life. I love to smile; now I have the mouth to SMILE! Dr. Atcha and the staff here make you feel good from the time you call the office to the time you come in, when you call the office and they know who you are just by saying your first name, you feel this over whelming feeling of family and concern, and compassion. I am very definitely a firm believer in sending people to Dr. Atcha.

"I've neglected going to the dentist out of fear. Today was my second visit and I had no fear at all. I felt everyone at Dyer Family Dentistry was there to help me and had my best interest at heart. I'm having a little cosmetic work done, too; and I could feel everyone there was excited for me and my appearance would be enhanced."

"Prior to my visit to the Dyer Family Dentistry, I wouldn't go to the dentist. I hadn't been to the dentist in over five years because five years ago, I became an adult and my mom stopped forcing me to go. I have no phobias. I can jump from an airplane, traverse the worse parts of Chicago without looking over my shoulder; to put it mildly, I'm not afraid of anything, except the dentist. With fear comes anxiety, and I had the worst. I've fainted at the dentist office. I've gotten sick. I hyperventilated. My heart rate has scared healthcare professionals. I uncontrollably shook. I cried. I had top notch anxiety attacks. It got so bad that the thought of the dentist or the sight of an office made me slip into apprehension. My past dentists didn't like me either. When I was younger, I'd kick, scream, bite, and scratch. As an adult, I'd make appointments only to cancel them. In fact, I'm not allowed to go to two dentist offices because I've canceled on them so many times.

"But time took its toll and my smile became noticeably deteriorated. My mother begged me to call a dentist for almost a year. Then finally, she found Dr. Atcha and the Dyer Family Dentistry. I really wanted to get my teeth fixed, but every time I've been to the dentist, my anxiety made it near impossible to last a full visit. The team at Dyer Family Dentistry did not only understand my anxiety, but they did absolutely everything in their power to help me get my teeth fixed. I had to have over $16,000 dollars of work done because of my poor care of my teeth, and they were able to help me through it. They helped me through the long day full surgeries with amazing amenities and sedation. They treated me like a guest in their home and never let me feel scared or feel pain. I wasn't a file or an HMO number. I was Elizabeth, and I never felt anything different.

"I just finished my last appointment today and looking at my long journey from the first appointment to the last, they have helped me through my fear of the dentist. I can make appointments on my own without the last minute ditch effort or without canceling them. I can sit in the dentist chair without feeling dizzy. I can even take a drill to a tooth without novacaine or any other form of sedation. I don't have my anxiety attacks anymore. I don't think I could have done this without them, and now I'm on my way back to building healthy teeth. Before this, I was ready to let all my teeth fall out. Now I have a real smile that I can thank Dr. Atcha and his team for. Without them, I'd have holes in my teeth and impractical anxiety. My thanks can never be enumerated in any amount of words."

—Elizabeth Bodeker

 

"Everyone at DFD is fantastic. There is not much harder for me to accomplish then to get dental work done. Especially with the shape I was in. Three names specifically stick out. Dr. Atcha is great and extremely pleasant. I have worked hard to make the dentist the bad guy in my head. Dr. Atcha changed that all around. Alessa is the best dental hygienist I have ever seen, and at the age of 45 that has been a few. Finally, the person that really made me feel that DFD is the place for me. Karen is incredible. I don't think anyone could pretend to care that well. She really cares and she made me feel so comfortable. She, more than anyone, made me feel like I not only found a place to go to the dentist, but I made a friend.."

—Derek

 

"I would just like to say thank you to Dr. Kapadia and all the staff at Dyer Family Dentistry! Everyone is beyond nice and friendly. I heard a commercial on the radio and thought "why not try a new dentist?" I needed to get a cavity filled (my first one ever). I ended up have many fillings filled. You have the best reception staff, and they give you so many options for scheduling.

"Recently, I also had an accident at work. My two front teeth had been hit and needed to be replaced. I had an old crown and bad bonding on my two front teeth that was done years ago. I had a bike accident when I was 11 and my old dentist put a huge crown in, he said I would grow into it. Well I never grew into it and it had discolored. I was so self-conscious about them that I would even cover my smile with my hand. I was scared that I was not going to look the same. When I came in Alice took care of everything and I didn't have to worry about any workman's compensation problems. Thank you! Dr. Kapadia and her staff made me feel extremely comfortable. I had my teeth whitened, and they look great. Lindsy did a great job making sure I was comfortable and she even popped in a movie for me to watch. Everyone worked very hard to make my experience wonderful. I was even sent to the dental lab to get a custom color match for my new teeth. My new crown and veneer look wonderful. My co-workers joked that they need to get hurt so their teeth can look as good as mine. My mom noticed my teeth within 30 seconds of me walking in her door. It is a great feeling to smile again. I love my new, white, and cosmetic smile. Thank you again for all of your help."

 

 

"Dear future patient, I am a new patient of Dyer Family Dentistry, and let me say “they are the most skilled dentist and dental assistants you will ever find? All of my life I had been insecure about my smile because of the spacing of my teeth. I had been searching and searching for a dentist who could solve this problem without having to deal with the agony of braces, but could find no one with an alternative solution. Well, one day I came across Dyer Family Dentistry on the internet, and I soon found out they had the answer to my problem.

"I had a very special event coming up in only two weeks, and even thou I knew it would probably not be enough time to change my smile I decided to call anyway. Well to my surprise, the very same day I called they got me in for a consultation, in which Dr. Atcha and Dr. Jasmine, along with their entire staff; immediately dedicated their concerns, time, and highly professional services to me. This meant so much to me as a new patient! And by the time of my event I had anew, beautiful, perfect smile, and a new found high self-esteem. It’s a miracle how a beautiful smile can change how you feel about yourself!

"My overall experience with Dyer Family Dentistry was amazing. There facility is clean, welcoming, and comfortable. Also, the entire staff is congenial, well-educated, highly skilled, and enthused about what they do. But most importantly, the staff at Dyer Family Dentistry is “genuinely?concerned about the wants, needs, and concerns of, not just me, but all of their patients.

"So if you’re considering Dyer Family Dentistry as your dental home, I highly recommend them! And, if you are not quite satisfied with your smile, from my own experience, I have the perfect solution: “Lumineers? So what are you waiting for? You’re worth it!

"My name is Sharon and I just wanted to write this in hopes it may help other patients like myself with their fear of Dentistry work. First to say I am one of the those people that have been very very scared and nervous of "Dentists" that I've actually have lost sleep the night before my appointment. Also, I have gone into panic attacks, almost passing out right in the dentist room. But I have to say now that with the patience, care and concern with the entire staff have helped me to relax a lot before and during my whole procedures. The Dr I saw was Dr. Joshi and he was kind, patient, caring and tender with me. Knowing my fears he was very supportive, talked with me before, during and after procedure that I became very relaxed and calm. I didn't even need any type of sedation or any gas to help me relax (which I usually do take at least the gas) and before I knew it my tooth was out and didn't feel any of it, I didn't even feet the shots to numb me. Dr. Joshi's bedside manner are very very good and relaxing and he made me feel so special and at ease. My experience here at Dyer Family Dentistry was the first positive time, I would suggest that If you like me to talk to staff and especially the Dr. you have so they know how to help you. The Dentist here are the best and very professional with their patients and will go out of their way to assist you. I would like to close by thanking the staff and to you Dr. Josh for your kind, gentle care etc helping for making my appoint a positive one. Keep up the good work."

Thanks everyone!"

"Dear Dr. Atcha and Dyer Family Dentistry Associates,

"Thank you very much for your generous care package. The three MASSIVE boxes of candy were well received by the Marines and should keep everyone smiling for awhile! Even those of us that are training and dieting had to have a few pieces. Can’t let it go to waste right? We have been in Iraq for about a month and things are going well. Time is passing quickly, but our thoughts are still of home. Getting mail and packages from people like you really keeps our spirits up and we appreciate it. We hope all is well with you and your family and employees. Please pass on our thanks to those involved.

"Best Wishes,"

"I just want to say thank you very much for the very professional and personal manner in which you are conducting business!

"From the time we walked into your office, being greeted by Lynn, and seeing the familiar face of Holly accompanied by a sweet spirit, continued on through with Amy (Beth), Deb, Alyssa and Kara, topping it off with the charisma of Dr. Atcha, our experience has been more wonderful; it’s been completely awesome!

"I was further impressed with the notes of welcome in the mail and additionally, your innovative communications via e-mail! Thank you for taking time and effort into making our dental experiences pleasurable. We look forward to keeping our smiles healthy and happy!"

"KUDOS!"

 

 

"I spoke to Holly when I called the referral dentist and I could actually see her smiling through the phone for she was so enthusiastic that I called. She gave me extensive details on financing and let me know that they offer this to everyone which made me feel that I was not alone in my quest to get a more beautiful smile. Her excitement for what the office had to offer really came through in her voice on the phone and it made me feel good about calling their office. I felt compelled to book my consultation appointment right then and I am happy that I did! Thanks!"

"Thank you for your “Cash for Candy?buy back program you made available to the community yesterday. As a patient, I appreciate your thinking of our troops, as well as promoting good dental health."

"Our church had a “Trunk or Treat?night on October 31 with all of the candy being donated by our congregation. We served several hundred children, but still had a lot of candy left."

"I dropped off 30lbs. yesterday and thank you for the $30 for our Children’s Ministry. Your gift will be put to good use. We still have candy available if you need more to send to the troops."

"Thanks again for a “win, win?program for our troops, our community, and our church. Be sure to let us know if you plan to offer this program again."

"First, I need to apologize for sending this so late. I came in on June 11th to have my teeth whitened. I was very, very nervous as my niece had the same procedure done a few weeks before me and told me it was really painful. Also, that was craze for me and I found myself rushing just to get there on time. Needless to say, I forgot to take ibuprofen and to bring my iPOD. ( I have very sensitive teeth) Well, I shouldn't have worried. Lindsey was the one who was whitening my teeth not only did she give me ibuprofen but she also let me listen to her very own iPOD. I was cold (I was wearing short) so she gave me a blanket! I have never been someplace where someone was so nice - especially a Dentist's office - she calmed my fears and I must say the entire experience was pain free! She was so nice and caring and I just wanted to say "Thank you so much" I will definitely recommend other people to get their teeth whitened by her! Also, I wanted to thank Karen for taking and sending my before and after pictures of my teeth! Thanks again!"
