Patient Testimonials


Dr. Mora & Staff received a fruit arrangement from a patient in appreciation of her finished dental treatment.
The HDA team was excited over her case results and even more pleased that she was so happy.
Thank you for this delicious gift and keep smiling!

As usual the staff and care was fantastic. From sending out email appointment reminders to the staff being ready for me when my dental work was completed, every detail is executed without a hitch. I purposely try to get cavities just so I can visit with everyone (only kidding). Great job and keep up the good work!!!!

I've been a happy customer for 30 years. Consistently very pleased with the professionalism and care that I get from everyone at Hawthorn Dental Associates!

Everyone at Hawthorn Dental seems to be solely focused on the client, and lucky ME for that!!! From Anne the hygienist to Monique at the front lines (receptionist)... To the two DDS's in charge it is a friendly knowledgeable atmosphere! Thank you for my bite and the maintenance of same! Your TEAM is the BEST!!!!

This is the best dental practice around. I've been going to Hawthorn Dental for years. The environment of the office is soothing---I feel like I'm entering a spa. Then I'm offered a hot wax treatment for my hands--I really am at a spa! Judee is personable and so gentle while cleaning. Both Drs. Mora are fabulous! I'm always impressed with Hawthorn Dental and recommend it to everyone I know.

Great friendly service from Drs. Michael and Cheryl Mora! I have been going to them for over 20 years; they have delivered excellent dental care to my family.

It is hard to put into words how great Dr. Mora and his staff are. For years I would end up passing out after receiving novacaine for my dental procedures, and i would wake up feeling like i went through a prise fight with Muhammad Ali. It wasn't until i visited Dr. Mora, as referred by my mom, that after listening to my dental horror stories, found out i was allergic to the epinephrine in the novacaine. By using a lower dose novacaine, it was like night and day. I can now safely go to the dentist and actually look forward to my cleaning appointments. By visiting every six months i have had great checkups and have kept my teeth healthy and white. Thank you Dr. Mora and your wonderful staff.

David K.

Dr. Mike is skilled, thoughtful and a genuinely warm person. I have never known him to have an off day. Dr. Cheryl, Judy and the rest of the staff excel as well.

Martin K.

Fabulous dental practice! I have been a patient for many years and can't say enough good things about everyone at HDA.

Michael C.

I love this place Judee cleaned my teeth and I could not be happier. When I go there I am greeted immediately by Monique and very shortly by Judee. I have going there since I stared going to the dentist.

Nolan C.

My family have been patients of Hawthorn Dental for many years, since 1989. We have always gotten excellent care and everyone is always friendly and concerned about us. We give them the best or top rating for dental care in the North suburbs.
Cindy S.

I would highly recommend Hawthorn Dental Associates to anyone living in the Chicagoland area. I have been going to them for 15+ years; along with the rest of my family. Their staff is very friendly, professional, & treats you like family. Thank you.
Benjamin S – Deerfield

This dental practice is absolutely amazing!! I've been reluctant to find a new dentist after mine retired. I've been in here a couple of times with other patients and was so impressed with the staff and the atmosphere I decided to give it a try. So glad I did!! The entire staff is warm, friendly, professional and happy!! They're very reasonably priced, great about explaining everything they're doing and why, helpful with insurance, and they do what's best for the client rather than their bottom line. Can't say enough good things about them! I no longer dread going to the dentist! Thank you SO much for a positive experience!
Renee W – McHenry

Best dental office! I've been coming here my entire life and would absolutely recommend Dr. Mike and Cheryl . Ann is a wonderful hygienist and has a great personality. From the moment you walk in the door you're treated like family. The office is beautiful and spotless! I'll always trust HDA to provide the best dental services. :)
Becca T – Mount Prospect

I've been going to Hawthorn Dentist & Associates for over 10 years. The people there are friendly, professional and nice. They are very thorough in explaining the simple procedures and the complex. Hats off to Dr. Mora and his team. The technology and equipment is second to none.
Rob G – Vernon Hills

First class all the way! The perfect combination of expertise and friendly staff. Ann alone, is worth the visit. My cleanings are exceptional while keeping the atmosphere casual.
Greg F – Vernon Hills

I recently changed dentist and chose Hawthorn Dental Associates. I have a history of dental work in my mouth and I was hesitant to change as this would be starting over. I arrived to the appointment and was greeted by multiple team members at the front desk. I then had a few X-rays, photos and a cleaning. My dental hygienist was terrific and very thorough. Dr. Cheryl saw me and spent a good amount of time with me discussing my mouth history and what work needed to be done moving forward.

On the way out I was given an estimate of the work needing to be done prior to scheduling my appointment. This was great.

I am very happy and would recommend them to anyone!
Debbie A – Vernon Hills

My husband has been going to Hawthorn Dental and seeing Dr. Mora since he was a kid. He's always raved about his dentist (I know, who does that?!) and finally convinced me to switch. I was hesitant only because it means driving all the way up to Vernon Hills from the South Loop!

I went for my first appointment this month and have to say that it really was a great experience. Everybody was so nice and professional. They even offer a hot wax treatment on your hands while you have your teeth cleaned. From what I can tell they have a lot of people who went to them as kids who are now sending their own kids to them which speaks to the service they provide. I know our little guy will be visiting them soon as he comes up on the time for his first ever visit to the dentist!
Juliana G – Chicago

I have been a patient of Hawthorne Dental since they began operations. I am extremely happy with the treatments and care that I receive. My hygienist, Judy, is wonderful. It is good to have someone who really cares about the health of their clients teeth and gums, and who goes the extra mile to deliver great service. My dentist, Dr. Michael Mora, has done great work on my teeth when required, whether filling a simple cavity or making a complex crown. And the support staff is excellent as well. I sincerely and confidently recommend Hawthorne Dental Associates based on my years of experience with them.
Mike C – Buffalo Grove

Best dental practice in our surrounding areas! They are wonderful with kids ! I highly recommend them. The entire staff always so welcoming and happy. Dr's Cheryl and Michael Mora are lovely people (: ...I can't wait to see them again!!!
Cristina R – Mundelein

I have been going to Hawthorne Dental for years- have always been somewhat phobic when it comes to dental work due to bad childhood experiences. I immediately felt at ease with both Dr. Mike and Dr. Cheryl Mora- have had a lot of work done there over the years including crowns and many cleanings. I have always had great experiences there with the entire staff- the practice even sent me a lovely note when I had a recent surgery! They are friendly, knowledgeable and caring- don't see myself ever changing dentists and highly recommend the practice!
Lea P – Buffalo Grove

Great dentists, excellent hygienists! Today I got my next cleaning done there, and their hygienist Judy did an outstanding job on my sensitive mouth, no pain, no discomfort. Too bad I found them only recently.
David D – Vernon Hills

Highly recommend this practice for all your dental care. I have been a patient for over 25 years and they have consistently provided excellent care. When my daughter was young she was not a fan of the pediatric dentist we had (she screamed). You can imagine my concern when I took her to HDA for the first time. Absolutely no problem, they are wonderful with children and she now looks forward to her visits to the dentist. Judee is a wonderful hygienist, Sylvi is an excellent dental assistant, I have 100% trust and faith in Dr Mora, the office staff is always friendly and helpful with any issue. Thank you.
Marian S – Lincolnshire

Mike and Cheryl Mora have been our dentists for many, many years and these two wonderful people and everyone on their team could not be more talented and caring of their patients. The entire team at Hawthorn Dental is premier in their capabilities. In addition, they are genuine in their care for your health. The team also gives back to our community through annual Lake County clinics. We have been blessed to have the care of Dr's Mike and Cheryl, Judee, Silvi, Maureen, Monique, Sherry and the whole team, not only professionally, but as the dear friends that they have all become. There is no better choice!
Catherine Specht – Hawthorn Woods

My wife Janice and I have been going to Hawthorne Dental since 1987. With so many choices for dentists in the area, that should be tangible evidence of how we think of them! The entire team is extremely pleasant and goes out of their way to make a visit to the dentist an enjoyable event. They are conscientious, professional, organized, always on time, and very skilled at each of their respective positions. Over the entire span of our time there, there have been many 'constants' -- Judy, Dr. Mike, and Dr. Cheryl, to name a few.....all of their employees have long tenures here - which tells you something about the owners and their approach to customer and employee satisfaction. On a scale of 1-10, these guys are a 10!
Skip B.

This is a great place! The dentists and staff are friendly and helpful and the office is very clean and professional.
Elizabeth G.

Thank you to the amazing staff of Hawthorn Dental Associates for giving me even more reasons to smile! I couldn't be happier with their work. I highly recommend them for your dental needs!
Heather E.

My husband and I started going to HDA 8yrs ago, after several coworkers recommended them. Dental hygienist Judee is gentle on my teeth and gums. Dr. Michael is always in great mood; both are a pleasure to talk to. Everyone is so friendly, that you feel welcomed each time you return. They also have a modern and clean office. You can tell they constantly think of ways to make their patients happy and comfortable. In in the waiting room there are current magazines, complimentary bottles of water, toys for kids and coat closet. Once in the chair they offer complimentary paraffin hand wax which to me feels like I'm getting pampered, so I leave with clean teeth and soft hands. They send me email appointment reminders and email appointment confirmations which I prefer over voice messages. They offer evening hours and Saturday hours which is a great convenience. This place is top notch. I highly recommend them!
Tania T.

Have been to a lot of dentist offices over my life, but have never been treated as nice as here. Always on time, so no waiting in the lobby. Always with curtesy and by name, so you feel at home and at ease. Thank you everyone. Monique, you are the best.
Michael M.

So I am not a dentist fan, but the staff at Hawthorn Dental Associates have been amazing in ensuring I am comfortable at every step. They are always on time with their appointments, and they make scheduling a breeze. Everyone there is just amazing to work with and the I could not be happier!
Michael F.

The whole team at HDA is just so nice, caring and professional. The moment you walk in the door and are greeted by Monique you get the sense of their customer centric atmosphere. Dr. Cheryl, Gaby, Mimi and Judee take great care of my smile and always make me smile too...painlessly. Y'all are awesome!
Jeff S.

I have been going to Hawthorn Associates since first coming into the area in 1986. Mike and team have always been helpful, professional and upbeat. Their goal is to make every patient feel like family. Highly recommended !!!

Jay N.

I have been going to Hawthorn Dental for over fifteen years. Both Dr. Cheryl and Dr. Michael are wonderful people that treat you like a person and always have your best interest at heart. The rest of the staff truly compliments this fantastic practice. My dental hygienist Judee is an AMAZING woman that not only does a great job on my teeth, but makes you feel like you are a guest in her home with her warm personality and friendly conversation. If you are looking for a dental practice Hawthorn Dental Associates is a great choice!
Tom F.

So glad I found Hawthorn Dental Assoc. almost 20 years ago! The care is wonderful and only surpassed by the awesome staff. Everything gets explained thoroughly and everyone goes out of their way to make my treatment comfortable...that and always getting things done right the first time have been really important to me. I HIGHLY recommend this practice.
Lynn G.

I love my Dentists and Hygienist staff at Hawthorn Dental. I come in and have the best time at my visits. And each visit is shorter and more pleasant since I am on track with a regular schedule of care. I have recommended them to everyone I know for the past 22 years and will for as long as I know them.
Kathy V.

Hawthorn Dental Associates is a great dental clinic. The place is clean and the staff are warm and welcoming. My dental hygienist, Ann, is meticulous with her cleaning yet very gentle. Dr. Cheryl always has a smile and is thorough with her exam afterwards. I don't mind going to this dentist at all!!
Rosanna C.

Everyone was very helpful and friendly. I had X-rays and then they set me up for scaling. They walked me through issues I have and future treatment. Thorough, polite, and kind. Well done by all persons I interacted - front desk, X-rays, hygienists, and Dr. Cheryl.
David P.

Everyone was gracious and helpful. As always, even with a root canal, I did not experience any pain. I'm very grateful for being able to continue coming to your office for may dental care.
Susan S.

I appreciated being seen so quickly…and also appreciated Dr. Michael's follow-up call.
Sue E.

Lisa always does a fantastic job in cleaning my teeth. She is truly very professional at her job.
John P.

You have the best customer service. Everyone I met on my appointment were nice and the information given to me was easy to understand. Thank you for taking my urgent appointment. More Power to the team...
Elsa S.

Everyone nice as always. If it was not a dental office (say a coffee shop?), you would have a crowd:-)
Don E.

I am always impressed by the doctors and support staff at this location. They have a very tough act to follow, as my dentist was so quality before. I have told my dad and mum I've found nearly a perfect replacement for "Dr JJ" (retired at least four years), who was my dentist since I was about four years old.
Shelly S.

“Hawthorn Dental Associates dentists & staff are fantastic! They are very personable and professional. Their work is superb!”
Carol S.


"Monique, Lisa, Sylvie and Nancy (not to mention the Drs.) are all wonderful representatives of your office!"
Bridget A.


"As always very impressed with the professional, high quality, friendly services provided."
Jim C.


"The neck wrap was great! I want one! The paraffin hands were a little silly feeling but also a really good touch (pun intended). Now all you need is the relaxing new age/nature sounds in the background and we'll start thinking of a dental visit as a pleasant spa experience."
Gail G.


"Judee has a wonderful personality and made the entire experience less stressful. Her jokes where some what funny and her explanation of the floss process and reasons why to floss where fantastic! It actually made me want to be a better flossier! The only recommendation I would have for your office is to get Dish Network and tie it into the "Mora-vision" Plasma TV's in front of each patient's chair. The new equipment is very art deco / modern, I like it. Another recommendation I have would be with the selection of toothpaste flavors. Being a male, we typically prefer non fruit and meat type flavors (ie. Bacon, Pizza, Hot Wings, etc... You get the drift.) I would recommend your office to other, and already have. Go Team Hawthorn!"

"I am really pleased with the service and care provided by this office. Let it be said, you all had a tough act to follow -- I went to my last dentist for over 30 years, even when I moved out of state. I would gladly refer him (now retired) to your office."
Shelly S.
