Get a Great Smile
Such a friendly office! They don’t pressure you into something that’s unnecessary, they’re courteous, and extremely patient. I would recommend this office to anyone! I live on the south side of Chicago, and thank goodness we continued to go to Lazzara after he left our primary dental office. Well worth the drive! Thank you doc! You did an AMAZING job on my sons teeth! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
We had such a great experience today at the orthodontist. The office staff is very friendly and inviting. The Doctor we saw was very nice. He explained everything really well and answered all of our questions. So happy to have had such a wonderful experience with the orthodontist.
I would highly recommend Dr. Lazzara and team. They are very personable, accommodating and flexible with their schedule. They have met us in the office during off hours when needed. We have three kids with braces and they all loved Dr. Lazzara!
very good with kids. i never waited long on appointments
Can’t say enough about how happy I am to have received treatment from Lazzara Orthodontics. Highly recommend.

I highly recommend Lazzara Orthodontics! They make you feel like family when you’re in the office and their results couldn’t be better. They really care about their patients. Both of my children love going in to see everyone. To top it off, they are very affordable.
Very friendly & efficient! Great experience!
Dr. Lazzara was wonderful when working with me and my braces. He always worked around my schedule and figured out what good times were best fit for my needs. The people that work there are all nice and comforting. I was nervous before getting my braces, wondering if it would hurt or if something would go wrong. Dr. Lazzara took little steps and after each one he asked if I was doing good, that was reassuring because he does want to know if you are in pain or doing great. It was smooth getting my braces on and they went over what I could and couldn’t have to eat. Sadly I didn’t eat candy for 8 months but it’s ok, I survived. Other people try to scare you when they hear all the rumors about how it hurts when getting your braces off. When I was waiting to get them off I was terrified. But it was nothing. They just snap right off and you don’t feel a thing. The staff was thrilled when I got them off and they gave me a bag of candy! I have never been so happy to get sweets! They gave me a short celebration and I was off. Thanks Dr. Lazzara!
