Good service, nice people. Just be careful to read exactly what you're paying for BEFORE you pay as they seem perfectly comfortable with recommending additional items you don't really need nor want under the guise of a "plan" and then charge you for those items without ever asking if you wanted them in the first place.

I'm not even sure where to start. My first time at Dr, Ed's office I was scared to death but I'm not naming all the names because I don't remember them all so I'm not ruling anyone out, but every member in the office is amazing. Dr Ed and his staff made me feel so at ease and comfortable j can't express how much better I feel knowing what great care they take care of the patients. I will recommend lifetime of smiles to anyone and everyone thank you so much Dr. ED AND TO HIS STAFF

I have had some terrible dental experiences over the years that has left me full of anxiety when I go to the dentist. For the first time I had a cleaning that didn't hurt and a hygienist that not only answered all of my questions but addressed my concerns. Gina is amazing and so knowledgeable. Dr. Ken also addressed my tooth pain and helped come up with a treatment plan to fix the issue. I didn't even feel his shot! He had the the most calming gentle demeanor. You cant go wrong with this office. Its the very best!

I had never been to the office before, but called with a swollen face and bad tooth pain. I was able to get in the next day. I have never had such a great experience with dental work. Everyone was very friendly and gentle with my tooth. Dr Pat was able to remove my bad tooth at the first appointment! I was numbed extremely well, and the process was almost painless (a few pokes of the numbing needle were rough, but nothing after that)

Had a great experience at a Lifetime of Smiles. Gina was the hygienist and did an excellent job! Talked to me throughout the appointment so it made the time go by fast while she was very efficient. Dr Pat is my favorite dentist! He did an outstanding job, once again! Very caring and makes sure you feel at ease. Didn’t have to wait at all, great job to the front desk for scheduling appropriately.

I had an emergency extraction that needed to take place. I was nervous but Dr. Ken did such a great job that I felt no pain aside from the numbing. Even the numbing was more gentle than I have experienced before.The women in the office were amazing as well, particularly Abbey who helped me get my insurance confusion figured out. Highly recommend!!

I called them up as a last resort solution. I was in tears because I was in so much pain and my dentist had turned me away without even thinking about it. I had called over 10 places and been dealing w my regular dentist and nobody would help or put forth any effort. Sarah and Toni at front desk actually listened to me, prepared all the new patient forms, and welcomed me w no hesitation. I saw Dr Pat and assistants Audrie and Aubrey. within 10m of being called back; i got checked out, new x-rays, a plan of attack for my teeth, and a payment plan. they were able to pull the teeth that I went in for, and I have my next appointment set up for the next teeth. never going back to everyone's family dental in utica!! and never going to another dentist!!

I went to a lifetime of smiles yesterday to have some work done. Dr Ed , Dr Ken and all the assistants who helped with my visit were excellent. From the numbing of my mouth to doing a filling and making two crowns they were very good at what they did. So thanks Dr. Ed and your entire staff.

I had a great first experience here. I had Dr Pat and Brittany, they did everything they could to keep me comfortable and informed. The rest of the staff are very kind, professional and accommodating. The facility is so clean and beautiful. I was afraid before I walked in but Dr Pat was the nicest dentist I have ever been to, went over my treatment plan and insurance breakdown before I left and made appointments to return. They have changed my perspective in dentistry and I can’t wait to start my journey. If you thought you had given up hope, get a second opinion and call Lifetime of Smiles.

Dr. Monroe helped me out with an emergency root canal, fixed tooth decay and a new crown!!! It was a long day but the outcome well worth it. It’s been a week today and soreness gone. What I want to say is thank you to all the staff, Marcy was fabulous, his assistant and especially Dr. Monroe for coming in on his day off right before Christmas. He always keeps me calm because I trust him. I would highly recommend him and his staff to my close friends and family. Thank you!!! ❤️

I had some extractions done by Dr. Pat and his assistant Britney, and like all of my other visits to "A Lifetime of Smiles", I left extremely satisfied by the quality of care provided by this facility. At the time of this review, I am almost a week out from the date of my removals and, with the help of their detailed post-care guide and advice, I feel MILES ahead of where I was in previous extraction recoveries! The staff here is always so professional and it's always a pleasure to visit. If you are in the Illinois Valley area seeking dental care, you can do no better than with the team at "A Lifetime of Smiles"!

I was in a rush today so I couldn't express just how thrilled I am to finally have my bridge put in from back molar to right after front canine. It's beautiful. It's affordable and I can confidently smile. They look sooo much better than my original teeth ever did. Been smiling since I left just because I can. Thank you so much Dr. ED. It is truly appreciated. You guys are the least judgemental place and it makes everything that much more worth it.

I had the most welcoming and wonderful experience here. As a kid I had some awful dentists, so I was very nervous to go see one. Dr. Pat and his Assistant Holly were so kind to me. They stayed later than they needed to in order to help me fix some of my teeth. They were informative and always made sure I was okay throughout the whole process. They made me feel important and really took their time to care for me. I would recommend going here when you need a dentist. If you're like me and are nervous to start seeing one again, I promise they will make you feel glad that you took that step. They definitely changed my mind about dentists. I can't express enough gratitude to the both of them. it is rare to find employees who love what they do. Dr. Pat and Holly are an incredible pair of outstanding people. thank you!

I was someone who put off dental work until the very last moment and had not been anywhere in 7 years. I was recommended to come here and I was not disappointed! The whole office is very friendly and open from the receptionist, to dental assistants, and the doctors. I had Doctor PAT as my dentist and I was so happy with how professional he was in his explanations of the procedures and his knowledgeable demeanor set me at ease! The dental assistant helping him named KYLIE was so sweet and their fun banter kept my mind off the teeth! They made me feel included and comfortable. I also want to thank my dental assistant GINA for the awesome cleaning and explanation of good teeth care! Everyone here is thorough and knows their stuff!

He is an excellent dentist and I will definitely be going to him from now on!Shout out to Sarah for getting me in so soon! Thank you!!

An emergency crown is exactly what you want when away from home, right? That’s what I was facing when I called the office looking for help, but by the end of the day my crown was in place and my pain was gone. Dr. Ken and Dr. Pat did an amazing job tag teaming my treatment and the staff was so helpful and kind. I wish these guys were in my home back in Maryland but for anyone in LaSalle/Peru, count yourself blessed to have them.

When I was 18 and had to have work done I went to dr ed in lasalle. I needed extensive work. Was my fault. We had to pay cash and when i was all done dr ed said (you seem like a really good kid, I am taking off $500!off the bill). And he did just that. He made me not to be afraid of the dentist anymore. Thanks dr ed.

This lady needs a raise!! She was amazing! Walked me through everything she was going to do, explained all my options throughly, gave me a pain free experience with no pain even after the numbness wore off!Dr Pat consulted with me and was great, as well. Took his time, didn't make me feel like I was just another patient.Lindsey was my receptionist..she was a doll! Did a fantastic job walking me through the initially paperwork and explained everything well! She set the tone to this office by being the first face I saw walking in. Friendly, welcoming and great customer service, which seems to be hard to come by nowadays.Thank you all, for making my first visit a wonderful experience!

I had a scaling, which in the past had been very painful. I felt no pain during the procedure and when anesthesia wore off, I still had no pain.Now I will only go to Dr. Pat and I highly recommend him to all my friends.

I called A Lifetime of Smiles and within a day they put me on their schedule and fixed my entire bonding within an hour and a half. I was extremely satisfied and want to say THANK YOU for your expertise and kindness!See you all very soon!

Just under a week ago, I got a root canal done here. Dr Pat and the assistant (I forgot her name, so sorry!) were really patient with me, as, towards the end of my appointment, it was tiring to keep opening my mouth as wide as they needed. However, they were patient with me and they would tell me when they were close to being done, as well as lightly explaining what they were doing as they did it (enough to console me and my mom, but not enough to scare her!). The receptionist (i also forgot her name, so sorry again!) was also very accommodating and worked around our schedules.

I had some dental work done by Dr. Pat and I am very happy with the results. I have had tons of dental work in my life and have never felt as comfortable at the dentist. Dr. Pat was excellent at letting me know what was happening and everything was pain free. 100% would recommend and will be sending in my children.

I'm a big baby when it comes to dentists but I didn't mind going here at all. Gina made it pain free and did an excellent job on my procedure. I will definitely be returning and spreading the good word about this place!

Dr. Pat has so much passion for dentistry! I’ve been a patient of his for about a year and a half. He’s always so kind and caring. He wants to make sure that I’m pain free. I’m in my 50’s and he’s replacing some of my old fillings and updating my smile! The staff is so nice and really puts me at ease! Dr. Pat is, by far, my most favorite dentist I’ve ever had! I would highly recommend👍🏼👍🏼

I wish I could give Dr. Pat and Jessica 10 stars. They went above and beyond to accommodate an emergency root canal. I can't thank you enough. Your entire staff is to be commended for making me feel like a friend instead of a client. Thank you all!!!

Dr. Pat and Jessica were amazing! I had wisdom teeth removed and he made it completely comfortable. I felt nothing. I was concerned about price at first, but was actually really affordable. Everyone in the office was super nice, answered any questions I had. I would definitely recommend to everyone!

You won't regret giving them a call. I switched over from another dental office and have never once regretted it! They take great care of you and care about your well being, in all aspects. I've never et such a caring group that does just as amazing work. Thank you.

Dr Ed is always so patient with me even though I'm a big baby at the dentist. He never makes me feel bad for being overly nervous, like some dentists do. Even though I live 45 minutes away, I still like to go here if I need any "painful" procedures done. He always keeps comfortable.Today Brittney took my sutures out and I didn't feel a thing!

I’ve been going to see Dr. Ed for years now and it’s always been a good experience. Called in at the beginning of this week with a broken filling, they got me in before I left on vacation. Dr. Ken and Jessica made it an enjoyable experience. Leanne was very pleasant when I walked in and Desiree’ helped go over the treatment plan. Everyone that I have ever encountered here has been very helpful and kind. 10/10 would recommend Dr. Ed

I am a wreck over going to the dentist,but not this one. I have had major work done here, and Dr. Ed has been wonderful and provided me with pain free dental work. I saw a new doctor today, Dr. Ken, and he was equally gentle and skilled. He will be a great addition to this friendly, caring office.❤️

I went to Dr. Ed yesterday for a root canal. Not only is Dr Ed a very friendly guy he is also a true professional at his trade. He did a root canal through my crown. I'm not a dentist but, that seems like it would be a tough procedure. He saved me from having to get a new crown. His assistant Maddie was also professional and kind. Everyone there is friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Ed Monroe.

I wish I could leave more than one review on this place! That just shows how many pleasant visits I've had at ALOS! The entire team is extremely knowledgeable, professional, educational but most of all caring. They care about their patients and it really shows from the minute you enter the office up to the second you leave. I never truly enjoyed going to the dentist until I found ALOS. The atmosphere is comfortable and welcoming along with the facility being super clean. I saw Gina today for a cleaning and she was gentle and explained every step. For any of my dental work, I see Dr. Pat. He's absolutely great and also makes sure that you have no pain before, during, and after the procedure. I've finally found a dentist office that I can trust and will continue going here. I love ALOS!

First time I went here and didn't realize they do all this dental work. They did an excellent job in fixing my front tooth. Rae and the rest of the staff were awesome and will definitely be back here. Most of all I finally found a good 'place in this area to do dental work. Never going back to my past dentist.

The service I received today was wonderful. I am petrified of the dentist. I always have been. Gina took care of me. She took her time to calm me down and she was so patient with me.Desiree was SO helpful as well and sweet! She walked me through the finances and made sure I was comfortable and understood everything that was going to happen.I have never had a better experience and I couldn’t be more grateful for these two!

Tried this office for the first time yesterday and we loved it!! My daughter and I had Gina work on us and she was so inviting and thorough. Dr. Pat worked on us and my husband and really explained everything in depth. We were given a tour of the office and new patient gifts. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly, Sarah knew how to answer all our questions! Scheduled our next checkups for January and we can’t wait to go back!

Today was my first time in the office today. Gina was great! She welcomed us with a gift for it being our first time there. She gave my son and I a tour around the office, and included information of all the services they provided there (basically any dental services you can think of). Dr. Ed and Gina were very patient with my high spirited child who is very scared of the dentist. A nice perk is the office lets you book a dual appointment. So you and a child can do your cleanings in the same appointment. I am skeptical person when it comes to deciding dentists, but I am 100% happy in my decision on choising A Lifetime of Smiles.

I have never had such a comfortable and professional experience at a dentist before. Gina was amazing and walked me through all the stages of what was happening and all future treatments. Dr Pat was very thorough in his explanations and further treatments. No longer will I dread the dentist !! My girls and I had an enjoyable visit. Thank you

Dr. Ed, Ethan, and Marcie took such good care of me, AGAIN. I have terrible trauma from childhood dentistry. It takes all I have to just walk through the doors, but Dr. Ed is so completely calm and gentle. He takes the time to make sure I am comfortable and ready to proceed. I appreciate the kindness and care given at Lifetime of Smiles. I would recommend to anyone looking for a compassionate and gentle dentistry experience to try Dr. Ed and his team.

Had X-rays done for plans for future visits. Gina also did a great job with the cleaning and fluoride treatment. The Dr. and his staff are so easy to work with and have a “no shaming” attitude about previous dental work or future work that needs to be done.

I was having excruciating pain at the end of the week and into the weekend. I tried every dentist to get in as it seemed I had the start of an abscess, but everyone was out of town. I was put on meds after going to fast care. Dr. Monroe had returned my call and even though he was also out of town, he was able to see me the next day (over the weekend) when he got back. That was huge for me! We met and he took X-rays, etc. It turned out I needed a root canal. The meds weren’t working, and after I called the next day, he managed to switch things around and get me in! This is the first time I had ever met or even been there. Everyone was so nice and helpful and everything was explained very well. The root canal that I was nervous and worried to get wasn’t bad at all. I’m completely surprised at how well it went. They made sure I was comfortable and had no pain before and while working. Desiree was fantastic as well. I’m so very grateful for the great teamwork that Dr Monroe and Desiree had to help me out. Thank you so very much!Jen Marsala
