5 out of 5 stars

As a general dentist I have been referring patients for years to doctor Pick and I had been impressed by his professionalism, skill, expertise and detailed reports. So, when I needed a periodontist myself he was my first and only choice. I cannot praise enough his staff, also (I had the pleasure to personally meet Sonya, Gosia and Annie). Dr. Pick and his office set the standard for excellence. Thank you so much, Dr. Pick!

Recently, Dr. Pick and his colleagues extracted my cracked first molar. It took about an hour an it was painless and stress-free. Dr. Pick and his assistants made me feel very comfortable. Afterwards, Dr. Pick and his assistant explained exactly what happened during the procedure and the post-operation care that would be needed. He prescribed two medications nod Dr. Pick thoroughly discussed with me the reason for each medication. The evening of my procedure, Dr. Pick’s office called me to inquire about my recovery. He also stated that I could call anytime and he would be available. I would highly recommend Dr. Pick and his staff!! I COULD NOT IMAGINE HAVING ANY OTHER ORAL SURGEON THAN DR. PICK PERFORM THIS PROCEDURE. They really have set the bar VERY VERY HIGH!!!

Dr Pick’s expertise and meticulous attention to detail was beyond my every expectation, as are his topnotch, friendly, and knowledgable staff. I would overwhelmingly recommend Dr. Pick as one of the very best periodontists in the country, and feel very fortunate to have him in the Aurora-Naperville area. If you are looking for the best periodontist around, look no further, and go to Dr. Pick, you will be glad you did!

I’ve lived in many different cities, and Dr. Pick is absolutely the best doctor I’ve had in every way. I had a few implants and gum graft performed by him, and everything turned out to be perfect. I had a very fast recovery after each procedure with very little pain. and I’ve never had any problems after each surgery. He was really great at explaining the whole procedure and made me very comfortable through the entire experience.
Not only Dr. Pick, staff and practice is state of the art, he really cares about each of his patients and always takes time to listen to them. Everyone in the office is extremely professional and nice, and the quality of care at Progressive Periodontics is phenomenal. I’m so thankful for the best care received by Dr. Pick and his staff!

Dr. Pick and his entire team has been taking care of me for years. I have severe TMJ disease. Dr. Pick and the hygienist Heather are so gentle and caring. They take their time to make sure I don’t have any discomfort. Dr. Pick also did an implant for me. I must say he is the best! He provides the highest quality of service, uses the most current techniques and has the most up-to date equipment. I have the highest confidence that he always provides the best care.

I recently had a Subepithelial Connective Tissue Graft by Dr. Pick. I have to say, he is hands-down the most knowledgeable and kind doctor I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. He was kind and within minutes of talking to him, I could see that he was clearly an subject matter expert in his field. He sat with me and explained the procedure, and why I needed it, and spent as long with me as I needed to make me feel comfortable about the procedure. I couldn’t imagine going to anyone else. I really felt like he cared about my recovery, and was available at all hours of the day in case I needed to call with a question. His expertise in this field was even clearer to me when I went through my recovery, as I experienced almost non-existent pain and swelling from the procedure. I accredit that to his excellent work in performing the surgery and his knowledge base on the subject. His staff was warm and incredibly welcoming, and his office was clean and very inviting as well. I would recommend Dr. Pick to my closest family and friends, as I have never had a better experience! Thank you Dr. Pick for saving my molars with the Subepithelial Connective Tissue Graft. I am so grateful!

I had a gum graft surgery done on my front bottom tooth by Dr. Pick in March 2015. I wish all of my dental experiences would exceed my expectations like this one did. Dr. Pick and his staff are amazing. Everyone is extremely kind, friendly and professional. Annie and Gosia – I can’t thank you enough for your compassionate demeanor. Dr. Pick – your expertise and your approach to the patient are unbeatable. Most importantly, the outcome of my procedure is superb. I highly recommend Progressive Periodontics for all of your periodontal needs!

I am a dental hygienist working in the Aurora area for 27 years. The dentists I work for have referred their patients to Dr. Pick for years. I have seen his work over & over again and have always been so impressed with the outcome. When it came time for my daughter to need a periodontist, after ortho removal, for a gingival re-contour on her front tooth, I knew exactly where to take her! He is a perfectionist! Dr. Pick is very kind & compassionate. He works slowly, precisely & explains exactly what his treatment will entail. The outcome of her procedure was amazing, boosting her self esteem! She then needed a second procedure, 2 years later on another area where the ligaments around a tooth were too tight, causing it to rotate out of place. Another amazing job done by Dr. Pick, painless & perfect! I highly recommend Dr. Pick & his wonderful staff to help you if you ever need a periodontal specialist. Do not hesitate, call immediately, they are FANTASTIC!!!

I wanted to share a unique experience I received from Dr. Robert Pick’s staff on March 24th. I know what you’re thinking, he utilized the word “Unique” for a Dental/Periodontist office.
I was extremely impressed with the knowledge and professionalism provided by their Dental Hygienist named Cara. She walked me through every step of the deep cleaning process, even to the point of announcing the depths of the gum tissue on each tooth. She made my visit educational and more importantly very comfortable!
Many individuals dread going to a dental or doctor appointment and many times extraordinary efforts go unnoticed and are just brushed under the rug (No Pun Intended).
We all interact with many people on a daily basis and most people’s names go unforgotten, but the good ones are always remembered…Thanks Cara!
Progressive Periodontics vision statement says it all “deliver the highest quality standards of periodontal, oral medicine and implant care to our patients“.

Since 1995, Dr. Pick and his team have always been in high regard with me. I wouldn’t think of seeing anyone else. His expertise and manner are 2nd to none. Annie is the best… always the first to greet you and the last to say see you next time. Nothing but pleasantness and professionalism from everyone.

Dear Dr. Pick and staff,
Thank you very much for your kindness, patience and genuine concern. While I would not wish extracting teeth (on most people.) LOL If you needed to have it done, I would send them here without hesitation. I was surprised to have a completely pain free experience. And I appreciate the phone calls to check my progress. Have a blessed Holiday!

Dear Dr. Pick,
Just a note to thank you for the fine service you recently provided me during the periodontal procedure performed on my tooth. You were highly recommended and met all of my expectations. Beforehand, you thoroughly explained exactly what you were going to do and what to expect. I must say I had no ill effects afterwards and the area healed beautifully. It was a pleasure to meet you, and if I require any future work of this nature, I wouldn’t hesitate to contact you, or recommend you to others. Sincerely, Marilynn W.

Hi Dr. Pick,
Thank you VERY much for your help. I am really happy to be able to consult with you on these difficult cases I have, as I value your opinion above everyone else. I will get going with the short implants case and order 8mm long fixtures. I have placed them in the past, I am just not a big fan of anything shorter than 10mm and I agree with you. BTW, my mom is completing her restorative implant treatment with Dr. S. I placed 3 implants in LR area, one 10 years ago and two 4 months ago, and they are all parallel to each other. Dr. S gave me a big “kudos”, so I said I had a great teacher to thank – YOU!!! I hope all is well. As you know, although you taught part time with us in the post graduate clinic, your efforts, teaching and lecture style, experience, materials, slides, cases and your surgical skill were the best of all the faculty we had!! Thank you again and all my best, Carrie

Hi Dr. Pick,
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I took this ad out in the paper for all to see!
I have had 7 years of experience as the Lead Surgical Assistant for a highly thought of Periodontist. Not only has he taught me everything I know, but he was always sending us to continuing education classes so we could learn even more. The best experience of my life was getting the opportunity to work for Dr. Robert Pick. He is hands down the best teacher I’ve ever known, he believes in you and makes you believe that you can do anything. I never thought I could learn as much as I did working for him. He cares for and goes out of his way for all of his employees all of the time. And the patients, let’s just say they LOVED their Dr. Pick. He has a way with his patients that no matter how nervous someone is for surgery, as soon as Dr. Pick walks in the room, all the nervousness seems to float away. And his patients are Number 1 to him ALL the time! Because of Dr. Pick I have learned not only how to be the best Surgical Assistant in the world, but I’ve also learned many life lessons that will stay with me forever. I can never say thank you enough Dr. Pick for all you’ve taught me, and ALL that you’ve done for me! I miss you. Stacy V.

We just wanted to thank you for all of your devotion and care you took with our daughter Amanda. We also want to thank you so very much for fighting for us with our insurance company. We just wanted to let you know that we ended up going through Gary’s company’s HR and trying to fight for payment. We are happy to let you know that our insurance company is finally agreeing to help us with a partial payment for all of the wonderful work you did on Amanda’s mouth. Thank you again for everything! Gary, Sandy & Amanda Z.

Hi Dr. Pick!
Thank you so much for taking the time to email me and send me the photos!! You are truly an amazing doctor that really cares… you emailed me on your own time on a Friday night! A caring doctor with excellent personality AND amazing top notch surgery skills is almost impossible to find… I am so thankful that Dr. C recommended you to me! The photos are truly amazing. I am so lucky and grateful that my teeth look so much better and are so healthy now, thanks to you!!! You are truly above and beyond with your patient care. I really appreciated your fun jokes and fun chatter throughout my surgery. I was able to relax and even have “fun” as I learned what interesting things you were doing during the surgery! I also liked how you said we are this % done with this side and almost done with this part, etc. I felt that the surgery was fast and I felt 110+% confident in you during the whole thing! I also thank you so much for taking your own time after work to call me on the night of surgery to see how I was doing. I didn’t get to talk to you, but the fact that you called to check on made me feel good…you really do care about your patients! Every appointment exceeded my expectations as you were patient and answered all of my questions and explained everything so well. I am so grateful that I had this procedure done and I am honored that I had it done by you! If I EVER need any dental work again in the future I am making a beeline to you! 🙂 Thanks again for making my smile so happy!!! 🙂 Have a wonderful week! Please share this email and my review with your patients! Sincerely, Julia W.
