I saw this dentist at a location near Chicago and Ashland; not in Highland Park.

The office staff was extremely friendly and they were all assets to that business. I actually am writing this review about 8 to 10 months after my visit. I will explain.

I had a visible cavity and went in to get the cavity filled. I also went in for a cleaning and to have the dentist xray my teeth and let me know if there were any more problems I could NOT see.

Well, he only found the one cavity that I pointed out to him. He filled it. It was quick and he made sure I was numb. It went well.

The problem I have is that I mentioned to him when I eat sweets/sugary food, my upper molar feels a slight pain. It concerned me that it may be a cavity. He looks real quick and said no. The thing is, IT WAS A CAVITY that grew very DEEP over the next few months. A new dentist had to spend 5 to 10 minutes (which I have never had someone drill for more than 2 minutes...) to fill the thing and I suspect the filling is close to the root.

Dr. Reisberg also mentioned at some point that I should replace my fillings, but he never said when. He DID say they didn't need to be replaced right away though. WRONG AGAIN. The molar right below the one with the cavity had decay under the filling, which should have been visible from the x-rays he took.

Because he overlooked that, I also had to get a deep filling very close to my root (since the decay progressed way too close to it). Unfortunately, if the inflammation in my root does not go down, I will probably need a root canal soon. I can't even chew with the left side of my mouth. I wish he would have 1) LOOKED a little harder for a cavity when I said I probably had one and 2) LOOKED AT MY X-RAYS a little harder and 3) If my fillings suggested they needed replacement, he should have just said I should replace them as soon as I can.

Would I go back to this dentist? No way. He was a nice enough guy, but someone who can't prevent a much bigger, more expensive tooth problem is not worth the money.

It is really hard to find a good dentist when you're using an HMO.

Again, very impressed with the office staff.
