Dr. F has been my dentist since I moved home from college. I have been more than pleased with the level of service he and his staff have provided.

Typed in 'dentist' to google maps on my iphone and his office populated. Dr Fiss did a nice job and will work with you to determine how to want to look and feel about your smile. He takes the time to get to know you and what's important to you. He has a lot of patience and my end result was a very natural, pretty smile that suits my face and personality.

I am so fortunate to have discovered the most wonderful dentist in Chicago! After floating around to a few different dentists for several years and skipping regular dental visits for a bit, I took a friends recommendation to try Dr. Benjamin Fiss. I couldn't be happier. Not only has he gotten me and my husband back on track with regular dental care; he has improved my self esteem by fixing my smile with porcelain veneers. He and his staff were supportive and excited for me. They worked with me, so that a portion could be billed to my insurance. He definitely stands behind his work. Even calling the next day to check on me. Thank you Dr.Fiss! We appreciate you!

If you are looking for a dentist that actually enjoys what they do, cares about you as a human being, and knows how to properly communicate, see Dr. Fiss. I chose Fiss because from day one he communicated with me with honesty and clarity. He never promised anything he could not do nor did he get frustrated when I asked questions. I was also impressed by his incisiveness and the creativity he brings into his work. One of the things I appreciated most about Dr. Fiss, is how he teamed up with other specialist from around the city to provide me with the best care. Unlike some dentist I’ve seen in the past, he doesn’t try to do everything in his office. (I was especially pleased with the oral surgeon he referred me to: Dr. Gargiulo at Park Dental Specialist.) One thing I’ve learned through this whole process is that it is extremely important to find a dentist that communicates effectively with the oral surgeon and any other specialists he or she may be working with. It is also important to find someone that genuinely cares about the final results. Fiss didn’t see me as just another appointment or procedure. He saw me as a human being who was incredibly insecure about my smile. Cosmetic dentistry can be expensive and time consuming. It is important to find someone you can trust. I never had to doubt whether or not I was in good hands or whether or not I made the right choice. It is clear that Dr. Fiss and his team care about what they do. I cannot recommend them enough.

Dr. F has been my dentist for over 20 years, he and his staff always go above and beyond to make the results perfect and the experience to get there pain and anxiety free. His facilities are state of the art, and he knows every new little thing out there. He and his staff are exceptionally caring, I always feel like they are concerned about me as a person--not just another patient. He took the time to explain exactly what he was doing, every step of the way--so I could understand what the results would be way before the procedure was done. He also was focused on making my smile natural and complimentary to my face. I am overwhelmed with the results--they are amazing!!.

Cosmetic Surgery in dentistry and beautifying one's smile have become a daily request in my practice. Many patients express a desire for whiter teeth. It used to be that I could only offer my patients two different forms of tooth whitening. The first option, laser bleaching, proved to be inaccessible to many people due to its cost. Patients were also hesitant because of the time involved, and tooth sensitivity that might occur. The second option was the take home bleaching kits. This method...
DENTAL ARTISTRY Technology triggers new age in dentistry By Douglas Perry Strong, healthy-looking teeth promote self-confidence and a sound attitude toward overall health and fitness. Yet many people don't put much thought into how they care for their smile; they run a toothbrush over their teeth every day and leave it at that. Diligent home care (de: regular and proper brushing and flossing) and bi-annual visits to the dentist for check-ups remain the easiest and most effective...
The quest for self-improvement takes on many forms. Many times, this effort is geared to enhance some aspect of one's appearance. Television shows like The Swan and Extreme Makeover have highlighted the possibilities available, helping to make cosmetic makeovers an attainable goal to everyone; it's not reserved only for Hollywood celebrities. Dramatic, full-body changes featured on these shows, however, can take months to com- plete. What's more, they cost a small fortune!...
Veneers are extremely strong thin porcelain “shields” that are bonded onto the surfaces of your teeth. They have the ability to change an ordinary smile into an extraordinary smile. Porcelain veneers can close gaps, improve color as well as create the look and feel of instant orthodontics. Once the veneers are bonded onto the surface of the teeth, they are able to recreate all of the depth of color and translucency that naturally occur in enamel. To create a natural look, as if the...
