I've been a patient of Dr. Torma and the entire team for over 25 years, starting as a kid myself to now bringing my whole family. Everyone involved in the practice provides expert care, and they have stepped up their already excellent process to meet the challenge of COVID extremely well. On top of that, given how kind and welcoming everyone in the office is, we truly look forward to a visit to the dentist. They are professionals, neighbors and friends.

Dr Lauterbach and her team are the most professional I've ever worked with. Thoughtful and considerate is the best way to describe them.

For all my dental work I have been seeing Dr Lauterbach for close to 30 years and also occasionally Dr Torma. I have been continouesly impressed by their great work and the wonderful treatment by the whole staff. My whole family is in their care. Congratulations on the new attractive and very accessible office!

Had a terrific experience with this group . I am the nervous type of patient even when it comes to a cleaning. They made me feel at ease with the whole process . I would definitely recommend Katherine and her staff.

Dr. Pappas is the BOMB! So grateful & lucky I found her. If you are looking for an excellent dentist, Dr Pappas is the one to meet. She has an amazing bedside manner. She is smart, friendly, calm & explains everything. I have never felt rushed in all the years I've been seeing her. Her assistant Alex is amazing as well. I'm always greeted & treated well when I go or call. The whole staff is on point!

We've been patients of Dr. Lauterbach's for well over 30 years. She is the absolute best. The office is immaculate. The equipment is state of the art. The office staff is friendly and personable. Dr. Lauterbach and her partner, Dr. Torma are more than dentists, they are good people. We refer them to all of our friends.

If only all professional service practices were like this one! Drs. Lauterbach and Torma are knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and caring. The word integrity springs to mind every time I think of them.We are all busy and pressed for time yet I gladly brave Chicago weather, construction, and a 45+ mile drive to continue seeing Dr. Lauterbach. And I'd drive even farther if that ever became necessary. I simply know of no other practice that offers the obvious skill along with the personal touch that is offered here. If you're looking for a dentist you cannot do better than this practice. These are people who care and it shows.

I have been going here for about 9 years. This office is too notch, well run. It's professional and always running on time. Dr Lauterbach is a gift to all dental patients but esp patients like me. I fear dentists and dental work. She is so competent and provides excellent work. I'm so grateful for her. I would trust her to care for every member of my entire family. Thank you Dr Lauterbach + crew!

Best dentist I've ever had. Highly professional, honest, friendly, with state-of-the-art tech, and a great front-of-house staff. Can't imagine going somewhere else.

Consistently excellent: courteous, caring, and very professional. I frequently have recommended this office to my North and Northwest side friends and family who are looking for a dentist. Young, middle aged, or older family and friends have had nothing but good things to say about the work and "we care" attitude at this office.

I worked at Dr. Lauterbach's practice for 12 years.  During that time I was able to witness her first-rate dental work on every single patient she treats.  Her approach to her patients' treatment is one of the most compassionate and ethical I have ever seen. As a result of the practice's incomparable reputation, it is a busy practice.  However, I have seen how the entire office works to accommodate patients who have dental emergencies.  She treats every patient as if it were a member of her family.  For this reason, even though I am no longer a part of her team, I am still a patient.  This practice is the only practice I recommend my friends to go to.  I know that they will be attentively cared for by the entire staff.

Even though I live 40 miles away from the office, it is definitely worth it the trip. Her dental office is up to date on all techniques; my former dentist was not. The waiting room is friendly and cosy, and they have an nice toys-and-books areas for waiting children, right next to where the dental chairs are, not shuttled off in some corner.For special procedures, such as root canals, she has a network of equally great professionals. Her office partner is also as good as she is, have gone to her when my doctor was on vacation. Have been very happy with Dr Lauterbach for 21 years now. Once you find someone who's *really* good, you stick with them.

Dr. L , is awesome.  Totally trustworthy, very professional and just a great caring person.  She is NOT trying to push unnecessary gum surgery, removal of all your teeth or major jaw reconstruction as an "upgrade" (unlike MENTIST aka  marketing dentist). Only downfall, is she does not employee those super model hygienist like those Mentist  , but actually hires really well qualified hygienist.

I actually look forward to my dentist appointments with Dr. Lauterbach, et al. This office is cozy, friendly, clean, and proficient. The staff has great humor, TVs in each patient area, free WiFi, and those old-fashioned water cup dispensers. Dr. Lauterbach herself is friendly and knowledgeable. I find her trustworthy and not in the business to create or find dental problems to fix. I pay premium dental insurance because I refuse to go anywhere else.

Let me just say I hate going to the dentist - the smell, the sound, and not least of all the DRILL. Dr. Lauterbach understands my stress and after about 20 years, I wouldn't go anywhere else. Thanks for being there for all us neurotics. You saved my teeth and my psyche.
More
Dr. Lauterbach and Dr. Torma are amazing professionals, and lovely people. Caring, flexible, collaborators .  I have been with them from age 26, just now 52. OMG!  Doubles!

I couldn't agree more with the other reviews. We've been seeing Dr. Lauterbach & Dr. Torma since our 35 year old son went there after getting his braces off. This is a great experience in every.

My husband and I have gone to see Dr. Torma for years, and now our son goes as well - we like her waaaay better than the well-known, highly-touted pedicatric dentist we had taken him to before.

Dr. Lauterbach has been doing my moms teeth for yeeeaaarrss so finally my brothers and I started going to her and we all absolutely love her! Everyones so friendly and the staff always recognizes us - even when we call! Will be going here for a long time :)

Dr. Lauterbach and team are my Dental Dream Team.  I've been working with Dr. Lauterbach for the past decade and I cannot say enough great things about these people.  The office staff are friendly, kind and oh so competent.  Trust me, when you can look forward to going to the dentist... this is no small feat and Dr. Lauterbach's team ensures a pleasant visit and dare I say... it's fun to see them and catch up.Dr. Lauterbach's style is calm and very present to you as a patient.  She loves to learn about you as a person outside of your "grill" and at the same time attend to the business of those pearly whites.Her practice is state of the art and her skill level is top notch.   The team has been very responsive to me in emergencies and they are GREAT problem solvers.  I have a complicated dental situation and they are ever compassionate, positive and willing to assist! Love, Love, Love this woman!  She's absolutely great!Thanks, Dr. L!KjSchulte

I have been blessed with cavity free teeth (knock on wood) so I can only review for my twice yearly cleanings. The staff is always friendly, and I have never had to wait overly long in the waiting room. Also, every exam room has a TV, so I can catch up on my daytime shows. The weird thing? I feel like I am always there when The View is on. Apparently, Barbara Walters is concerned about my healthy gums.

Professional, clean office, with a courteous staff.  I never have to wait long, and the cleaning and exams have always been painless and easy.
