I was way overdue for a dentist appointment, and my coworker recommended Mark D Pusateri DDS in Palatine, IL. I love that they could accommodate my schedule and set up two different appointments for my exam/x-rays and cleaning. That way, I didn’t need to take an extended lunch break for work. I didn’t have to wait to be seen, and since I didn’t have dental insurance, they had a few deals to help me out. Dr. Pusateri is so sweet and actually listened to my worries. My hygienist was just as kind and careful during the cleaning. My gums didn’t hurt at all after it was over. All in all, I had a great experience and can’t wait to come back!
After skipping the dentist for a long time because mine passed away, I knew I finally needed to go get a new dentist. My girlfriend told me about Mark D Pusateri DDS in Palatine, so I booked an appointment. I expected to pay a little more because of where they were located. Following my xrays and consult, Dr. Pusateri recommended that I fill my cavities before they worsened and needed a root canal. I obliged and came back at a later date. He brings out this huge needle and terrifies me, but here’s the thing: I didn’t feel a thing! I always thought numbing shots were an urban legend, but I’m so happy they exist! He fixed my teeth in no time, and I walked out with a huge smile. I was a little annoyed because my mouth was numb, but it’s better than the pain I suppose. Next time, I’ll eat beforehand just to be safe!
I love Dr. Pusateri and his staff at Mark D Pusateri DDS even though I didn’t go there for very long. If you live in Palatine, IL, go see them now! I hadn’t been to this office in a few years because I moved, but I told my cousin about them. Every time she goes for her bi-annual appointment, she tells me how awesome they still are. She even talks to Dr. Pusateri about me and my dog! Thank you for the excellent care; high-quality dental work; and kind, warm and skilled staff! Also thanks for taking such good care of my cousin’s smile - I’m still smiling even though I don’t go there anymore!
I’ve been going to Mark D Pusateri DDS in Palatine, IL for years, and I never plan on switching to another dentist - ever! Dr. Pusateri and his office staff are so amazing and considerate, and I actually enjoy visiting their office. They never told me I needed additional procedures during my check-ups/cleaning. But a few days ago, I chipped my front tooth, so I called the office right away the next day. They told me to come in that day, and they fixed it in less than 10 minutes. It was fast, simple and pain free! Dr. Pusateri is a dental expert, which is why I’ve been seeing him for so long. I also told my husband to go see him because his last dentist actually made his teeth even worse. He was in a lot of pain for a long time, but Dr. Pusateri fixed him right up! A few of my peers also go to his office, and they all really enjoy it!
I have nothing but amazing things to say about Mark D Pusateri DDS! I went to Palatine, IL for a little getaway during my time off of work, and he was very hospitable and helped fix my temporary crown that fell out. I really didn’t want to see a dentist while on vacation, but after that one and only appointment, I could tell that he genuinely cares about each patient he sees. Thank you so much Dr. Pusateri for the top-quality dental service and care!
I really dread going to the dentist. My old dentist used to scold me for not flossing routinely. Then he’d tip me back in the chair and poke at my gums until it hurt, and he never suctioned out my saliva. Definitely not a good experience. Because of that, I actually stopped going to the dentist altogether for a few years, but I knew I had to go see someone. That new dentist turned out to be Dr. Pusateri, and I actually had a great appointment! It’s hard to believe I have something positive to say about a dentist, but he was incredible! So smart and welcoming, and he never stabbed me in the gums once! His office staff is also kind and competent. Highly recommend Mark D Pusateri DDS in Palatine, IL!
After checking reviews on Doctors Network, I decided to go to Mark D Pusateri DDS for a routine check up. Doctors Network did right by me once again! Everyone here was so kind and helpful and gave me tips on how to care for my teeth. They even emailed me all my new patient paperwork, so I could fill them out ahead of time and save time at the office. That was awesome. While I was there, they kept me calm, which is hard to do at the dentist office. Dr. Pusateri is calm, welcoming, and gentle. He was also really helpful, and after speaking with him, I now see why he had such great ratings. A couple of days later, I returned for a cleaning, and the dental hygienist who cleaned my teeth was so inviting and helpful, too. I’ve seen a few good dentists in my lifetime, but as long as I live in Palatine, IL, I’ll keep seeing Dr. Pusateri.
I wrote a great review for Mark D Pusateri DDS in Palatine, IL a few years ago. But I can’t find it anymore, so I’ll write another one. Dr. Pusateri and his staff are amazing! Before I started coming here, I hadn’t been to a dentist in about 5 years, so my gums were very sensitive and tender. The hygienist had to use numbing gel to clean my teeth, but the next appointment went much better. I’m no longer scared to see the dentist! Dr. Pusateri is amicable and clearly loves being a dentist. His office staff always smiles at me and are so personable and helpful. Plus, they even remind you of your future appointments. They filled a cavity for me, and I felt no pain whatsoever! Absolutely nothing. I couldn’t believe it when they said they were done! I didn’t even feel the needle he used to numb me up - I was so impressed! I told my brother about them, and he loves them too. Plus, parking is a breeze!
I’ve been Dr. Pusateri’s patient for a few years now. I’m not originally from Palatine, IL, but I moved here a couple of years ago. Dr. Pusateri and his staff consistently provide the best service and dental expertise I’ve ever experienced. From the receptionists to cleanings to billing to checking out, everyone I’ve bumped into has been so kind. Dr. Pusateri always gives me his undivided attention and answers all my questions, which is a breath of fresh air because most doctors try to rush you out the door. At Mark D Pusateri DDS, however, they focus on the quality of patient care, not the quantity of patients. Parking is also pretty convenient, and their office is easy to find. Thank you Dr. Pusateri and staff - I wish you all the best!
Dr. Pusateri is a dental expert! He actually put off his lunch break so that he could fix my chipped front tooth - how sweet is that!? He’s attentive, takes his time, and treats your teeth like they’re a work of art, all kidding aside. Thank you Dr. Pusateri and staff at Mark D Pusateri DDS (Palatine, IL)! You’re the best dentist near me - hands down!
Mark D Pusateri DDS in Palatine, IL is amazing! If you need an experienced, competent, attentive, inclusive dentist, go see Dr. Pusateri! Being in my 30s, I’ve been to a lot of dentists, but he’s honestly the best dentist near me! Just amazing! From the receptionist to the hygienist to the dentist himself, everybody is so great, efficient, and (best of all) cheap! The perfect combination!
I brought my husband to Mark D Pusateri DDS in Palatine, IL for a teeth whitening, and his teeth looked so fantastic I decided to do it too! Dr. Pusateri made my teeth 5 shades whiter than they were originally! I paid a little extra for some at-home teeth whitening trays. The assistant made me feel so relaxed the whole time. Everyone provided top-notch customer service, too!
The staff at Mark D Pusateri DDS are so welcoming and instantly put your mind at ease. They’re pretty quick, too. I used to hate going to the dentist, but I’m so glad I found this hidden gem in Palatine, IL! I love their hygienist. She’s the most careful, thorough hygienist I’ve ever had work on my mouth. Thank you! Dr. Pusateri is very genuine and truly cares about every patient on a personal level! The environment is homey and clean. Parking can be challenging, but that doesn’t stop me from going. My friend actually drops me off/picks me up, and then we go out to eat afterwards!
Just the word “dentist” terrifies me. I’m not sure what everyone expects out of their dentist appointments, but I don’t want to be in any pain or experience any discomfort. I just moved to Palatine, IL, and I wanted to pick the perfect dentist. I called a few dental practices and ended up going to Mark D Pusateri DDS. When I gave them a call, the receptionist booked an appointment for me and dealt with my insurance coverage, which really made me feel better about it. Dr. Pusateri and his hygienist are professional and mindful, and the best part was that I felt no pain! Thanks Dr. Pusateri and staff!
Hello! I was really spoiled by my last dentist, but Dr. Pusateri and his staff at Mark D Pusateri DDS in Palatine, IL made me feel so good that I knew they were going to be just as awesome! As soon as I arrived, I knew I was in for a great experience! About a year ago, I fractured the crown on my front tooth. A few weeks ago, I was eating a sandwich, and the crown split down the center. It was still in one piece, however, so I went on with my life until yesterday when I bit into my breakfast and ended up swallowing part of it! After my x-rays, impressions, and removing the old crown, they fit me for a new temporary crown. Dr. Pusateri has such a delicate touch, and he was genuinely worried about any pain I was experiencing, which I appreciated, even though it wasn’t that bad. Though the parking isn’t always great, it’s worth it! I’ll for sure go back. He’s my new favorite dentist! If you need dental work and live in Palatine, I highly suggest you give this dentist office a call. I can’t wait to come back!
Today, I had a great experience at Mark D Pusateri DDS (Palatine, IL) during my dental cleaning! I got a good deal for an exam, cleaning, and X-rays. They were so detailed and thorough, and now my teeth feel so clean! Dr. Pusateri and his staff were very kind and considerate, and they offer flexible scheduling. The hygienist and dentist were friendly and competent. They took great care of me, so I’ll be a returning patient. It was pretty affordable too!
Typically, I dread going to the dentist due to my fear of needles, drilling noises, and pain. But I really needed to see a dentist, so I booked an appointment with Mark D Pusateri DDS in Palatine, IL. And I’m actually happy I chose them! The receptionist was so considerate, and Dr. Pusateri was really empathetic to my phobia. He pulled out my tooth quickly, and it was pretty painless! He’s amazing! And so is his assistant - she was so compassionate and informative. I recommend them to everyone because they’re incredible!
I highly recommend Mark D Pusateri DDS! I was going to another dentist in Palatine, so when my boyfriend had some wisdom teeth pain, I took him to my dentist. Let’s just say that it was a terrible experience. They took one (brief) look at his mouth and told him to come back a few days later because there was nothing they could do. No one who was qualified to extract wisdom teeth was in the office. They gave him some hydrocodone, but the pain was so bad that it didn’t help. He walks in a few days later, and the dentist told him he couldn’t do the extraction because his mouth was too swollen and the muscles were too tense. He prescribed him more pain killers, a muscle relaxer, and an antibiotic and told him to return in a few days. I called Mark D Pusateri DDS, and they told us to come in right away. You can tell they truly cared about how much pain my boyfriend was in and genuinely wanted to help him. He went to see Dr. Pusateri, who examined his mouth and extracted his problem wisdom tooth in a matter of minutes. We were shocked by how fast he did it. He said the swelling was still pretty bad, so he prescribed a stronger antibiotic to take care of it. My boyfriend needed help immediately before his condition worsened, and Dr. Pusateri helped him out! He even followed up, asking if he was okay. Now, my boyfriend and I scheduled our next cleaning appointments with this office. Thank you so much!
I highly recommend Mark D Pusateri DDS! Dr. Pusateri is great and very truthful. He would never push unnecessary procedures, and he’s super experienced in dentistry. He and his staff are fantastic - at every appointment, it feels more like getting together with friends than a dental visit! If you need a new dentist in Palatine, give Dr. Pusateri’s office a call!
Mark D Pusateri DDS is the best dentist near me! Dr. Pusateri is just incredible, and his office staff is so kind. He even calls me and my children by name. We’ve been seeing him ever since he started his dental practice years ago. He does everything from routine cleanings to cosmetic surgeries. Once, I chipped my tooth, and he fixed it the following day! Bonus: you can’t even tell it was ever chipped! He also fitted me for teeth whitening trays and a mouth guard because I grind my teeth at night. You do have to wait a while for an appointment, however, because they’re busy, so make sure you schedule a few weeks ahead of time. I love Dr. Pusateri - highly recommended!
I love going to Mark D Pusateri DDS in Palatine, IL! The location is easy to find with plenty of parking. Don’t judge a book by its cover - the office is gorgeous on the inside! Dr. Pusateri’s operatory is cheerful, sanitary, and beautifully decorated. The environment is super family friendly, and they always make me feel so comfortable during my appointments. Dr. Pusateri was so kind and professional. He shook my hand and actually listened to what I had to say about my tooth issue. He told me the cause and the solution, and then he went right to work. I was only there for about 45 minutes, and I experienced no pain or discomfort. After running my tongue over my teeth, I couldn’t even feel where the filling was, and he color matched it perfectly! The dental assistants were wonderful with incredible chairside manner. They kept reassuring me, which I appreciated, and they worked so efficiently with the dentist. Teamwork truly makes the dream work here! If you need a good dentist who does top-notch dental work, check them out! Highly recommended!
Fortunately, I discovered this welcoming dental office thanks to a friend’s recommendation! The hygienist who bleached my teeth even knows my friend personally! I got an exam and full X-rays done at Mark D Pusateri DDS. From the front desk to the back, everyone was so sweet, gentle, and competent the entire time. I loved the environment, demeanors, and (duh!) the gorgeous smiles! After seeing Dr. Pusateri, I, too, have a shiny happy new smile! Thank you Dr. Pusateri and staff for the pleasant chats, and maybe next time, I’ll sing to you! You’re all so funny and made me feel so comfortable - I’m so glad to make you my new dental family in Palatine, IL!
I found Dr. Pusateri on Doctors Network, and I’m so happy I did! I called for an emergency appointment, and they were able to fit me in a few hours later as a new patient. There was a little bit of an issue/miscommunication, but they handled everything very well. The front desk receptionists were so kind, and they even treated my boyfriend, who was waiting for me in the lobby, with nothing but respect and kindness. The hygienist was kind and empathetic, and Dr. Pusateri was the best dentist I’ve ever met. He was even better than my pediatric dentist! I’m returning to Mark D Pusateri DDS (Palatine, IL) very soon for some more dental work. I’ll definitely make my boyfriend go to him, too!
Though strange, I actually love my dentist! My sister-in-law recommended Dr. Pusateri to me after her kids had a great experience with him. They actually like going to the dentist - they’re some strange children if you ask me, haha! I hadn’t seen a dentist in years, so my teeth were in rough shape when I walked into Mark D Pusateri DDS in Palatine, IL. I scheduled an appointment because I had a horrible toothache, and they saw me the same day! Turns out, I needed a lot of dental work. After he examined me, he went over the recommended treatment plan. He even explained the white porcelain fillings compared to the silver fillings and how much everything would cost. They may be able to work with you on a payment plan, but you’d have to ask. They tried to do as much as my insurance would cover to make it more affordable. They scheduled all my procedures out so that I wouldn’t exceed the annual maximum for my insurance, which meant I didn’t have to pay a ton out of pocket. The office is cozy with lots of parking and a welcoming staff. I was so embarrassed about the condition of my mouth, but everyone was so professional and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Pusateri takes a conservative approach, so he won’t tear up your mouth. He said my top wisdom teeth didn’t even need to come out. Plus, I felt no pain during any of the procedures he did for me. My teeth look great. Did I already say how much I love my dentist?
I’m so glad I found Dr. Pusateri on Doctors Network. I went to Mark D Pusateri DDS in Palatine, IL for a cleaning, and it went smoothly. He told me everything, including what he’d be doing and why and what to expect out of the appointment. I always wonder what doctors/dentists are doing, so I like that he explained everything ahead of time. He found a tiny cavity, but his staff scheduled me an appointment for when I wanted it. Before he did the work, he did a consult appointment with me, during which he checked out my x-ray and told me what he was looking at and what that meant for my teeth. He had great bed-side manner, and I will never go anywhere else for cleanings or dental work. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a great dentist!
I’ve always hated going to the dentist, but after doing some research I found Dr. Pusateri and his staff, and they’ve completely changed my mind. My advice to everyone is to do their research when looking for a new dentist in Palatine, IL, and then you’ll find the best one, which is Dr. Pusateri. I’m actually excited to fix all my teeth problems now. The front desk staff was very helpful, and so was the assistant and Dr. Pusateri. They are very friendly, and you tell they truly care about their patients. I felt very welcome there. They have the latest and greatest in technology that helped find areas of my mouth I didn’t even know about. I had 2 fillings done today, and I had no pain or problems afterwards.
I hate all medical offices, but this dentist makes me feel comfortable. If you have the same anxiety I have you should come here. The staff is very caring and they have a very clean office. Dr. Pusateri makes sure you’re comfortable and stress-free every time you’re in there, no matter the procedure. This is the best dentist I’ve ever been to. I’ve even flown back into the US to see my dentist. A coworker told me I should go see Dr. Pusateri but I was nervous because I didn’t know what to expect from a new place. But I went because I trust my coworker. some people might say I’m crazy for saying this about dentistry, but this is honestly the best decisions I’ve ever made. I’m so happy with this place. This place is affordable and they made me feel very comfortable, everyone looking for a dentist in Palatine should come here.
Dr. Pusateri is a great dentist. I had a veneer come off of my front tooth, and after I called his dentist office in Palatine, IL, and he was able to get me in within hours. He’s very knowledgeable, and he was able to fix up my venner with zero problems. I was there for only an hour, that’s how fast he was. The procedure wasn’t expensive at all, very reasonably priced. I will recommend him to everyone I know because I’m very happy with the results.

General Dental Care for the Whole Family in Palatine, IL
General dentistry is as important to your smile as taking care of your teeth at home. For instance, preventive exams and cleanings are necessary to prevent dental health complications such as tooth decay and gum disease. At our Palatine, IL dental office, Dr. Pusateri and our team offer a wide range of family dental services to help you enjoy a lifetime of beautiful smiles.
The Necessity for General Dentistry
When it comes to your health, prevention is the best medicine. Therefore, the primary focus of general dentistry is preventing dental diseases from developing in the first place. Besides keeping your teeth clean with good hygiene, professional dental cleanings and check-ups help stop the accumulation of oral bacteria into plaque and tartar. Other treatments, such as scaling and root planing (deep cleaning), bone and gum grafts, dental extractions, and more, can also help you manage existing issues before they grow worse.
Maintaining Good Oral Health in the Long Run
At your general dentistry appointment, your dentist will thoroughly inspect your teeth and oral tissues for signs of trouble. If any are present, then he or she will consult with you about appropriate treatment options to stop the problem from growing worse. However, successfully protecting your smile from further trouble will still rely on ongoing general dental care.
