Qualifications and Experience
Dr. Chris has been a member of the Staten Island community for almost his entire life. He was raised here, went to Monsignor Farrell High School and attended Wagner College, and completed his residency at Staten Island University Hospital. When Dr. Chris was six-years old, his father, Dr. Alexander Bernardini, graduated from New York University’s College of Dentistry and began the practice. Dr. Alex retired in 2002 and since then, Dr. Chris has continued the same high level of care and comfort to his patients and provides complete health dentistry to everyone who walks through our door.
2016 marked our 64th year of providing exceptional dental care. Dr. Chris and his beloved late dad have worked with four generations of families to bring optimal oral health to Staten Island and the surrounding areas. Our patients enjoy Dr. Chris' frank, accessible, and down-to-earth nature, and are comfortable talking to him about almost anything.
Verified Patient Reviews
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 is an 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. :)
Dr Chris is very knowledgeable, not just about the treatment i needed but also about any subject you want to talk about. The team is caring and very professional.
Dr. Chris is a wonderful dentist. My family and I go to him every six months. Linda makes sure our teeth are cleaned and polished to perfection. The entire staff is very professional and courteous. I went to Dr. Chris at first because I needed implants and there was no room in my mouth for the implants. Other dentist were suggesting removing teeth or filing them down so that the implants would fit. Dr. Chris was the only one that suggested we fix the problem. Because of the advice and recommendation I received from Dr. Chris, I still have all my teeth and they are now straight. Thank you Dr. Chris!
My family and I have been pleased patients for many years, Dr. Bernardini and his entire staff are OUTSTANDING!
Dr. Bernardini, and his competent staff are by all means, excellent.
Visiting Dr. Bernardini is always a pleasure. The staff is warming and inviting, as is the office. When I first came to Dr. Chris I was terrified of the dentist (as are many) even as an adult. My previous dentist might as well have been a butcher. Dr. Chris immediately put me at ease. My fear ended by my second visit and I have been visiting ever since (over 15 years). I have watched the office grow. They stay up on the latest technology, techniques and treatments. The dental hygienist, Linda, is thorough and gentle. Everyone in the office is knowledgable -- not only on dentistry but insurance and alternative treatments. I have referred many, many people. I can't say enough...it is always a positive experience (even when the news is bad).
I have been with Dr. Alex Bernardini for several years. He sends reminders for my appointments, He is fairly prompt when I arrive (I am not always exactly on time). He and his workers are friendly. I am uncomfortable with someone else's hands in and around my mouth, but I have never been in pain while he works on my mouth. Slight discomfort is the worst I have experienced. I have never been fond of going to the dentist, but he is the best one yet!
