Dr. Turcic made my previous apprehensions about going to the dentist completely go away. His expertise set my mind at ease, and the fact that his whistling song can be heard all over the office made me smile. I recently visited a dentist in Sears in Fox Valley Mall who tried to convince me that I needed to have a tooth extracted and a bridge put in. The cost was going to be more than 1,500. As a 26 year old, who has taken pretty good care of her teeth, I was horrified. Needless to say, I decided to get a second opinion. After reading several great reviews of Dr. Turcic, and a personal reference from my husband, (he actually was a patient of Dr. Turcic as a child), I decided to give him a try. The moment I walked in, the office ladies had me cracking up. The x-ray tech was very informative and worked quickly. Dr. Turcic told me that I did not need to have the tooth extracted, but that he could perform a root canal and put in a crown instead. I am so thankful that I found him!

my family and i have all been patients of dr. turcic for as long as i can remember. Dr. Turcic is by far the best dentist i have ever experienced, he is efficient and has the bedside manner of george clooney. However Dr. Turcic's knowledge of the inner workings of my mouth are not the only reason i am a returning, satisfied customer. The staff at Dr. Turcic's office is irrefutably the most friendly, compassionate group of people i have ever had the joy of encountering. They make sure that every time i visit it is an enjoyable experience rather than the typical "dreaded trip to the dentist." The Hygienists are always more than helpful and make the dental experience seem like a vacation. The receptionist in particular is always extremely delightful and patient when it comes to booking appointments, taking care of the financial situations, and even giving helpful information to questions i may have. She is always cheery on the phone and even returns my calls in a timely manner even on the weekend if need be. Her customer service is commendable, and ive always noticed she goes out of her way to maintain a positive attitude and professional atmosphere. i particularly love that she offers to book a six month cleaning when i leave but does not harass me about it like other dentists seem to do. Thank you Dr. Turcic and staff, my teeth appreciate you.

I've been a patient of Dr. Turcic's for the last 2 years or so. His cleanings go by really fast and I love that fact. I haven't had any problems with Dr. Turcic himself. However, it's quite annoying when every time you call the receptionist hardly EVER picks up the phone nor do you EVER get a 6 month reminder that you are due for a cleaning. It's bad enough that many people try to avoid going to the dentist as it is and those same people may need to little reminder as their "push" to make the appointment. This lack of customer service and follow up is enough to make me want to change my dentist but again, I do like Dr. Turcic so I'm not sure what to do. If they would only replace the receptionist, things might be better!

I have been a patient of Dr. Turcic and love him and his employees. They are all very friendly and in my book they care. I walk in and walk out- he understand we are either on a lunch break or need to get out as fast as we can. 4 years ago I walked in for a cleaning and a few questions. He referred me to my incredible ortho - Dr. Patel. I had braces for 3 years. He took care of my maintenance every 6 months - no issues. I have now a great smile!
He is the first dentist that makes me feel comfortable when visiting the office. No pain, conversation, and music whistling while working.

I recommend him.

High tech office...yes, he can find cavities with cool machines and fill them with durable resin. The facilities are nice and there was never any worry in my mind that my teeth wouldn't be fixed. The staff is a bit stand-offish in my opinion but I'm going there for my dental health so that doesn't really matter much to me. What made me not want to go back is that it kind of seemed like he just looks at his patients as a line of mouths coming down a conveyor belt. I have only been there twice but he just seemed like he was in a hurry. I know it's busy there but sorry, I'm gonna find a different dentist.

A very high tech office! It's nice to see doctors keeping up with the times. Seeing the x-ray instantly of my teeth was very interesting. Also, the film on Periodontal Disease was very informative.

I was weary to go here because of the reviews but had little choice do to insurance purposes. And I am soooo Happy that I did. My first visit was excellent. All of the staff is extremely nice and helpful. The dental assistant is so great, she tells you everything that is going on and is genuinely so nice. Dr. Turcic is also very nice and answers questions well. The entire staff is humming and singing. Great job cleaning my teeth as well. I had this same process done a few years ago and it has a short duration by nature.

I have been reading some of these reviews and can't believe my eyes. I am a current patient of Dr. Turcic and I have had nothing but EXCELLENT results. From the first visit I felt totally comfortable, the office environment is warm and friendly. I had recently had a cosmetic procedure and the treatment from start to finish was great.The front desk and the assistants are so accomodating and Dr. Turcic is just the nicest dentist you could ask for. I had 8 Lumineers placed on top and 6 on bottom and they look Fantastic. I'm a nurse and all of my co-workers at the hospital on my floor couldn't believe how remarkable my smile looked after. It was a little on the expensive side but far worth it in the end. Thank you Dr. Turcic and Staff.

Had a cleaning done which took all of 8 minutes - not kidding!! All my previous cleaning visits have taken at least 30 to 45 minutes;
I would definitely switch back to another dentist before my next visit as i am not sure of the extent of cleaning done this time, this was my first visit.

If you are looking for a Dentist well look no further. My recommendation to you would be Dr Stefan Turcic. I was deathly afraid of dentists until I went to Dr Turcic and his caring staff. I'v been going to Dr Turcic for 5 years now and have NEVER experienced anything but a warm and caring office and staff. The office is warm and welcoming even with the remodeling going on which is turnig out quit well. I have NEVER had a bad experience with Dr Turcic or his staff. I would recommend Dr Turcic's office to anyone looking for an exceptional Dentist.

After reviewing many dentists who were approved by my insurance, I chose one close to my office. He had graduated from Northwestern ? good school, right? You would then assume that he has his act together. Well, it was a disaster. His office is in a strip mall. That?s not necessarily bad however, close inspection of the outside would have given me a clue about the inside of the office. As I opened the door, I was just about knocked over by the old strong cigarette smell. Not good for my allergies. There was no place to hang a coat in the reception area ? again not necessarily bad. Receptionist with 1 inch long fuchsia fingernails. When I finally was taken back to the exam office, I noticed that the walls were dirty and damaged and no baseboard at the bottom of the walls. In the actual room, there were several areas on the wall that had peeled off and there was one damaged hole - they had taken putty and just smeared it on without trying to make it flush with the wall, sand it down or paint it. There was a dental instrument on the floor. The cup dispenser which held the cups for patients to use when flushing their mouths hung down from a cabinet, close to the wall. The wall around the dispenser was very dirty ? hmm, dirty fingers reaching for cups?!! I?ve never had my teeth cleaned the way the dentist did it (yes, no hygienist doing the cleaning). First, a lady who is spending far too much time in a tanning booth, took 5 x-rays of my teeth. Then the dentist came in. He used an instrument that sounded like a drill to clean the build-up on the inside of my lower front teeth. Then he used something that I think he called a prophy-jet (with baking soda) to clean my teeth. The whole procedure, including the x-rays and development took about 10 minutes. A thorough cleaning should take 40-45 minutes! Then, as I was leaving, I noticed their file room. Files were haphazardly put in boxes scattered on the floor. And mismatched filing cabinets were randomly placed along a wall. I know they are not moving because I?ve seen them in this location for a long time. Just too weird and scary.

PROS: NONE!!!
CONS: Unprofessional, uncaring...wasted my time and money

I contacted his office because I just moved to the area. His office manager stated that I was not on there sheets and I can not make an appointment till after October 1st. I contacted my Insurance company and they were able to make an amendment to the patient sheets because I moved out of the area of my last dentist. His office manager then told me on the phone that it is against there office policy to take me under my insurance. she showed no empathy or remorse towards my need to see the dentist. She did not even offer to accept me as an out of the network patient to get me in there for my emergency procedure. At the end of the conversation she then informed me that I can find another dentist. I attempted to call back 3 times to file a complaint against her with Dr. Stefan. No response as of yet. I did file a complaint with my insurance company and changed my Dentist.

PROS: None
CONS: Poor Office Staff

I've been with Dr. Turcic for about 4 years. Normal 6 month check up was done by him, usually takes about 15 minutes. One time, he had done a cavity filling for me, after that, I feel so pain, I can't eat anything. So, I went back to him, he check and said there's nothing can be done, I have to go to specialist to have a root canal. This bothers me, before I went to him, I don't feel the pain at all, after his dental work, all the option left is root canal?People go to dentist to relief pain, not getting pain. I was not very happy, so I asked for before/after x-ray. The staff was very rude.I went to another dentist to get a second opinion, he checked my tooth and found out the filling has a hole in it. Dr. Turcic has not done a proper dental work. So, my current dentist has to took out the old filling, and do filling again. and I have no pain ever. How come Dr. Turcic can't find out what's wrong? I am wondering how many of those unnecessary root canal has done under his advise.There is more, when I had my 6 month dental cleaning at my current dentist's office. They asked me when was my last cleaning was done? I told them 6 month ago with Dr. Turcic. I was told, it was not cleaned properly as well, because under the gum, it all turn black. I was shocked. My current dentist did a good 1 hour of cleaning for me. Finally I knew a proper dental cleaning should take about an hour, not 15 minutes.

Went to Dr Turcic's office for more than a year, and although I have no specific complaint it did not meet expectations. Staff was cordial, but not caring. Dr Turcic was efficient, but not the type who really seemed to be interested in long history. Also, Dr Turcic's helping dentists left much to be desired.

I had imagined that the office for the dentist would be a bit elegant. I was totally shocked when I saw the utter chaos at Dr. turcic's office. The receptionist made me wait for a good 15 minutes before even talking to me, She was talking with someone on the phone and did not even care to look at me for the whole time. The doctor himself for all the experience he may have seemed to be quite incompetent. He actually suggested that I need to have a root canal done and that it would cost me a net of ~700 after my insurance paid the rest. I knew that it could not have been that serious as I have started experiencing tooth pain only recently. I actually contacted my old dentist, took an appointment with him, drove a good 300 miles and had him give me a second opinion. He said that all I needed was a cavity filling and did that job for me. Fortunately my insurance covered that for me in entirity and I have not had trouble with my tooth since then.

PROS: none
CONS: does not care about his patients
