Dentistry involves the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of conditions, disorders and diseases affecting the teeth, gums and maxillofacial (associated with the jaw and face) region of the body. General dentists provide services related to the general maintenance of oral hygiene and tooth health.
Dr.Berkely is amazing, every time I go my experience is quick and easy. My treatment plan went smoothly
Very good experience here after having not been to the dentist in quite a while. I will recommend to others.
She explained every step she made while working in my mouth. She also looked at the problems i had and explained the reason of it. She gave me opinions and options of how to go about maintaining a great smile. Very professional, friendly and down to earth.
I was so pleased with my entire experience. The staff was kind and professional and able to address concerns immediately and clearly explain all billing/procedures/etc. Working with them on the appointment and everything went smoothly and didn't require any phone tag, which I highly appreciate. I will definitely be going back and sending my loved ones.
I highly recommend this dentist in her skills but also in her willingness to accommodate in some ways my rare special needs, MCS, without hassle or excessive questions. A dentist of this type who accepts insurance is a remarkable find.
Always look forward to my visits to Brighter Smile. Great atmosphere, very professional, awesome staff!
Highly recommend Brighter Smile with Dr. Beckerly! Fast and quality service. Front end service is excellent as well. Up to date with new technologies. Even have the option to chose the music you listen to, allowing you to feel comfortable where many people do not. Friendly atmosphere, where you're remembered even if it's been 6 months since you're last visit.
With Dr. Beckerly, going to the dentist has become something to look forward to! She is the best, and the staff is so friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend them!
Amazing service. They're patient and take their time. Great bedside manners. Front desk helped me alot with different information, payment plans, and referrals. Will recommend to friends and family.?

I have been using Brighter Smile for about a year now. Dr. Beckerly always does a great job. Couldn't be happier.
I found the Doctor to be very professional, thoughtful, efficient, my diagnosis was not exactly what I expected but the Doctor made me realize what she had to do was the only way to go. for my . I was given an appointment as soon as I called which was a big help. I had to return several times for adjustments which I understand is not unusual , the Doctor never made me feel like it was an in position but insisted she wanted me to be comfortable with this new appliance. I would definitely recommend her. The office was clean and makes you feel very comfortable. Joanne
She has hand picked the absolute most amazing staff. Extremely professional courteous efficient and personable .
Love Dr Berkerly! Highly recommend her to anyone.
She is a great dentist. Very kind and explains everything. Staff is awesome!
Going to a new dentist or doctor can always be a little nerve-wracking but everyone was really nice and welcoming. Everything was explained in detail and the whole office was clean and high-tech. Definitely happy with my decision to come here!
Very professional I highly recommend this dentist to family and friend's. The staff was very knowlegable, nice and helpful in explaining everything. Best dentist office very clean and modern up to date.
I liked Dr. Beckerly a great deal. She was thorough, cautions, and gentle; she was more communicative and respectful of my questions; and she is more conservative in philosophy than many dentists. (By that I mean, I trust her to recommend what is best for me, which is not necessarily what's most profitable for her). I came to Dr. Beckerly to get a second opinion after another dentist left me doubting her judgment. Put it this way: I'll be going back to Dr. Beckerly. I am very happy to have found a dentist to replace one I went to for more than a decade in New York City where I lived before. My one note of downside is that the office blamed ZocDoc for making me fill out my forms twice, and they spoke ill of their own experience getting ZocDoc to work for them. I encouraged them to call ZocDoc and ask the company to help them make things come out right for everybody. In my experience, ZocDoc is extremely service-minded. Though I must say about half of the Chicago-aread providers I've seen this year have struggled with the online check-in features. I'm not sure what's going on there.
Dr. Beckerly, along with Elijah and Ziggy, put me at ease during every single visit. I can't say that my visits are always pleasant because I have all sorts of dental problems, but they're bedside manner is great and their explanations are always thorough. Allowing you to choose your own Pandora station during your visit is a nice touch!
I have been looking for a Dentist near my home for some time. I am so thankful that I came across Dr Beckerly. Her staff was great and so was she. The office is clean and very comfortable. Which I have found out that not all Dentist offices are. Definitely will recommend her to my friends and family.
So far my experiences with Dr. Beckerly have been good. She's in my dental insurance network (cheaper than my previous out-of-network dentist), her office is within walking distance of my home (saving commuting time) and as a woman she's got smaller hands to stick in my mouth.
Follow up review for cavity filling - went really well! This was a different experience for getting a cavity filled (actually 2 btwn 2 teeth)...numbed my gums before the shot, hearing my music, seeing some tubes do some things, tapping my fingers to some Neo Soul while two people are staring at my face - wait, I'm getting a filling, focus! Didn't feel a thing. Except that beat. ha ha Seriously, it was a good experience - no hesitation on going back to Dr. Beckerly...and if you are a music lover, all the better, they let you pick what you want to hear (within reason). Great experience on a cavity filling!
Ziggy, Elijah, and Dr. Beckerly were great! Bedside manner on point, loved the music selection (mine) and everything was explained thoroughly. Going back for cleaning in 6 mos. Great experience!
Great Dentist ! Great people !
I have not seen a dentist in 20 years due to the Marine Corp dentists butchering my mouth. They were understanding & helped to keep me calm. Keep asking if I was alright, if u have a fear of dentist you should go here.
Excellent visit, great doctor, highly recommend. I plan to bring my mom to see her soon.
I've had bad experiences with the last two dentists in regards to fillings. I had sensitivity for 2yrs. I was weary about getting another filling but Dr walked me through the process and no pain during filling. so far so good.
Michelle is very calm and collected. She is highly respectful and you can trust her one-hundred percent. She's not there to expedite any procedures or "just get things done", she is there to make sure you're comfortable and to make your dental experience the best it can be. I am very pleased with Dr. Beckerly, her staff, and her facilities.
Outstanding manner. Walked through everything, took time to talk with me about my history and needs, and asked if I had questions or concerns at every stage.
Super friendly and relaxed environment. Michelle explained the whole process as she was cleaning my teeth. Always asked if i had questions and patiently answered them even when i repeated the same question. The payment plan was also explained to me so that by the time i left, i knew how much i needed to budget.
Just had my first appointment with Dr. Beckerly. Everyone was friendly and professional. I appreciate the effort made to explain everything and make me feel comfortable.
I had a great experience
Well, from the moment i walked in, till the time i left, my experience was very pleasant. I'd even go as far as saying my visit was enjoyable. The receptionist is very personable and humorous. The facility is brand new and state-of-the-art. The doctor was wonderful. She treated me like i was her only patient. She explained everything thoroughly before proceeding and when she proceeded, ensured that i was comfortable the whole time. I think i found my new dentist!
Really pleased with my experience at Dr. Beckerly's. Everyone was kind and considerate, and took the time to explain each and every step of the process. There was no wait and my exam went smoothly and efficiently. Would recommend to friends and family!
The facility is brand new and very clean. The atmosphere is bright and inviting, not to mention easy to find. If you're a Chicagoan like myself, you'll be thankful to know that there is free and easy parking! It's the little things that count for me. Now, on to the more important things, Dr. Beckerly was fantastic. She is undeniably great at what she does and ensures that you are comfortable throughout your entire visit. She made sure the discussion of costs occurred before anything, in order to accommodate my budget. I appreciate this because many individuals try to "sell things" to you, implying that you "need" it. Dr. Beckerly did not. She was through with her explanations, exam and teeth cleaning; I never once felt judged, rushed or felt like I spent little time with the actual dentist. Additionally, her staff was knowledgable, kind, as well as welcoming. I despise going to physicians' offices and end up encountering a rude or disengaged assistant. Overall, I'm glad I switched dentists and found a great one. Dr. Beckerly is a keeper!
Very professional and knowledgeable. Also personable and friendly! Would recommend!
Dr. Beckerly and Ziggy were extremely thorough from point A to Z. I very much appreciated the thorough explanation of my insurance coverage and my treatment plan. In addition, the actual deep cleaning was not as awful as I anticipated and Dr. Beckerly was very thoughtful and conscious of how I was feeling. She is great!
Michelle was awesome as usual. Her satff is genuine, and warm. Michelle is the real deal, from expert advice, to friendly talk, she will be my dentist for years to come.
Dr. Beckerly and her staff are wonderful! They are all about making the best experience for their patients. Dr. Beckerly has such a uplifting personality that leaves you feeling you are in very good hands. I could've fallen asleep in the chair I was so comfortable durning my cleaning. They even gave me shots to numb my gums for my cleanings because of my sensitive receding gum line. I've never had a billing issue at this office. The front desk staff is always extremely accommodating and helpful. The Treatment Manager / Office Manager does a spectacular job at Explaining your dental benefits and how much the treatment will cost and what my out of pocket would be. Very professional and thorough. Everything was proposed on a treatment plan and not forced down my throat. This is a new office in the neighborhood that has a really nice design and modern feel. There are large plasma TV's in the room to watch TV and listen to music while they work on the patients. They also present the digital X-rays onto the TV's to help the patient better understand what is going on in their mouths. All in all I love this dental office and will continue to be a loyal patient! I'd highly recommend Dr. Beckerly to anyone who is looking for a new dentist.
Showed me in detail (x-rays & pics ) what was going on and what needs to get done. She gave me a treatment plan and didnt pressure me to get nothing done. As soon as my insurance approves the work i will be back to get it done.
She was very professional and up to date in her practices and philosophy. I would highly recommend her as a dentist.
I was looking for a new dentist in my area and Dr Beckerly is a home run! She and her staff were extremely informative and helpful. The office was very updated and made me when more relaxed. Highly recommended!
She made me beautiful again!
Great experience. I was explained everything in terms that I could understand and felt very comfortable with the procedures. Extremely clean facility and professional staff. Also, the use of ZocDoc allows for a fast and easy office experience.
Dr. Beckerly and all of her staff (Ziggy and Beatrice) were all so nice and professional. The most pleasant experience I've ever had at a dentist's office.
As always visiting Michelle is always great. I have invisilign braces and every time I come for a visit Michelle will file down the any rough edges. They go above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied. I get appointment reminders by text, as well as, email. When I get there I feel like I'm visiting friends, that's how comfortable I feel. The office is always spotless, and all new chairs and state of the art equipment. Im so glad that my search for the perfect dentist is over. Thanks
This was the best appointment I've had! Everyone in the office was so nice and informative. I am no longer afraid of going to the dentist. I highly recommend!
Would absolutely recommend
Very helpful and friendly staff, even though I wasn't a local patient. Great results too!
Smart, friendly, and humorous; Dr. Beckerly is great. The staff is just the same. I'm actually excited about going to the dentists!
I was very nervous about going to the dentist since it had been a few years and Dr. Beckerly and her staff made me feel very comfortable. I also enjoyed that I could make my next appointment sooner rather than later!! I am going to recommend her to anyone who is looking for a dentist!!
Everyone was incredibly professional, and I was very pleased with my overall experience. The office and equipment was state-of-the-art. I felt I was in very good hands. I highly recommend Dr. Beckerly.
Awesome dentist! Very knowledgeable and extremely personable - made the experience, not always a pleasant one for me, an enjoyable one.
Michelle was wonderful! She took the time to ask what brought me in, asked about any pain, how I am feeling overall, etc. She thoroughly explained each step in the exam and cleaning. It had been over a year and half since my last exam but she didn't make me feel ashamed about it at all. I had two cavities and she took care of those right away, explained why white fillings are better for your health and made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire process. The hygienist who did my xrays was incredibly nice and took care to not hurt my canker sore. I am very happy with the level of service, even the receptionist who quickly calculated my costs with insurance. I highly recommend Natalia and Dr. Michelle to anyone.
Dr. Beckerly is incredibly accessible, and does a great job explaining the tasks she is performing. I went in for my initial consultation, X-rays, cleaning, etc. The staff is so friendly, and the office is sleek and modern. The team makes you comfortable, but Dr. Berkerly's professionalism and warmth, as well as skill are major differentiators. Highly recommend her, and the practice.
Dr. Beckerly was great! I went in as a 1st time patient for a consultation/second opinion. I am terrified of going to the dentist and she really put my fears at ease. She thoroughly explained everything to me in a way that I could easily understand and laid out a treatment plan that would work best for my overall dental health and budget. The entire staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I am pleased with the plan we have set forth and I'm very confident that I'm in great hands!
I really like her. She made me feel comfortable and was always asking me how I wanted to proceed, which was nice.
Took time to gather and understand prior dental history. Very thorough, and each procedure was well explained before hand. Office welcoming and atmosphere relaxed.
Extremely thorough. She created a plan for me based on my teeth both for my cleaning and follow up care. She is awesome!
I enjoyed seeing Dr. Beckerly. She has a wonderful "chair side" manner and was very knowledgable. Look forward to having her as my dentist for years to come.
