I am a long time patient of Dr. Lavacca. Probably one of his first. He put my laminates on 12 years ago. They still look absolutely fabulous TO THIS DAY! I do everything he told me not to- like bite into apples and hard bread. His work stands the test of time. If I figure out how much the work cost, and how long it has lasted, the investment was so well worth it!

I know this doctor: 20

I had a throbbing ache in one of my molars and had to go to the first available dentist; in this case, it was Dr. Lavacca. He pointed out a chip in the molar, and proceeded to cut a groove through the middle of the tooth. It alleviated the pain temporarily, but a year and a half later, my molar suddenly cracked into two, and it's my suspicion that it cracked along the lines of the groove. I found Dr. Lavacca to be nice and friendly, but given the limited success of his operation, makes it difficult for me to give a wholehearted recommendation.

I had a serious dental emergency about a week or so ago. The problem is, I have no insurance; and at the time... not one thin dime to pay for even the smallest piece of dental work. I searched and searched online for dentists who could help me and work with me on the billing, but everyone I found basically required immediate payment... Dr. LaVacca struck me as a kind, caring dentist who really is concerned about the health of his patients. He was willing to forego the standard billing procedure for me because he saw that I needed help. When I sat in the dental chair really thinking about how willing he was to help me, I had to fight back tears of gratitute. I am so thankful to Dr. LaVacca and his assistant Chris for helping me. This experience has made me feel much better about visiting the dentist. His office is located in a University of Chicago Senior Medical Center - not a fancy designer office, but what the facility might lack in ambiance, the staff more than makes up for in compassion, service, and genuine care for their patients. Everyone in the office is warm and friendly. His assistant Chris is very attentive and personable. This was the best dentist visit that I have ever had.

The staff is all very friendly including the receptionists, dental hygenists and the Dr. himself. My first experience with Dr. Lavacca involved filling in two cavities. I have issues with injections, and following the Novacaine adminstration I began to break in to a cold sweat and came close to passing out. Fortunately, Dr. Lavacca spent the time necessary to get me back up to speed, ensured I was ok with continuing, and completed the procedure. He turned a traditionally painful experience in to a positive and memorable one. My past experience with dentistry has been one of pure procedure (i.e. get in your mouth, get out and move on to the next patient) Dr. Lavacca, however, is willing to spend time getting to know his patient before and after completing any procedure. I would highly recommend his services. As long as I am in Chicago, Dr. Lavacca will be taking care of my teeth!
