Didn’t even need to take a seat before I was called in by name. Better than concierge without the fluff. Real doctor, real care. Rare these days.

I almost don’t want to write a good review because I don’t want the entire island to discover this HIDDEN GEM but this office deserves the greatest of praises! Dr. B is the best doctor I’ve ever had across all specialties...and I’m TERRIFIED of dentists. Pain is a distant memory here. Never felt a thing; I take comfortable naps while he drills and hums. He remembers everything about you and is the kindest human being you’d ever call your doctor. His breed of physician doesn’t exist anymore. This extends to EVERY member of his staff. They make you feel like you’re their only patient and just an extension of their family. Coming from large scale offices, this is the ultimate proof that a small office is where the truest doctors are. I look forward to every appt I have with the Bernardini family!

I've visited Dr. Bernardini's office three times now, and have a few follow ups coming up for extensive dental work. Both Dr. Bernardini as well as his office staff are all extremely friendly people - they care about their patients andI have never even come close to meeting a dentist with this much compassion. I *highly* recommend this office.

First time I ever went to Dr. Chris (January 2017) I went in terrified with a horrendous tooth ache. Turns out I needed an extraction done, I had read good reviews about him online and boy were they RIGHT! He isan AMAZING dentist. I'm upset I didn't find him before this because maybe I could have been proactive and taken care of my teeth instead of reactive to my toothache. He made the entire experience from start to finish completely painless (and I'm a punk when it comes to the dentist) His staff is also really good and so nice. I'm extremely happy with how my appointment went and I would definitely recommend everyone go to Dr. Bernardini. :)
