Best dentist I have had since I have lived in Philly (18+ years). The whole staff is great at making you feel welcome and comfortable. They answer any questions you have and they genuinely care about you as a patient. Have recommended this practice to all my friends.

I love seeing Dr. Backiel for my dentist appointments. She and the dental hygienists are very thorough and explain what they are doing and why they are doing it. They also use language that is very simple for me to understandas a layperson. I never have to wait long in the waiting room. They also have good music and magazines. There is also a very cute puppy. I just recommended by partner to see her as well.

Dr. Backiel was so friendly and knowledgable. I can say the same for her staff who were really welcoming and nice. The office was spotless. They really try to get their patients involved - you can tell patient satisfaction is highon the priority list. I'm really glad I found them and I'm looking forward to going back(this is from someone who avoided going to the dentist for 5 years).

This was my first time here,and I wasn't sure what to expect. However, everyone was super friendly and made me feel right at home. I interacted with a lot of the staff- honestly more than I can remember. But each was friendly, chatty and the appointment flew by.

Dr. Backiel and her staff always treat meet with the utmost care and patience. I have very very sensitive teeth and gums and they always go above and beyond to ensure my comfort while securing my oral health. The are verykind and gentle. I’m a baby, I admit. But their tender care keeps me on a regular schedule with cleanings. Great group of people!

For the most partI was happy with the visit. However, I was somewhat surprised when she told me I needed invisalign before looking at my teeth. I have been to several dentists/orthodontists in the past six months (since I got mywisdom teeth out), and heard that I had perfect teeth and eclusion each time. It felt a little bit like an ambush.

Dr. Brackiel is very pleasant and patient as always. Alyssa who led me to the operating area first seemed very nice and friendly. However, Alyssa did not operate on me; Ronda did. She seemed a bit rough, not gentle or considerate.She hooked the suction tube in my mouth as if hooking a fish. It hurt a little. She got water splashed all over my face and dripping out of my mouth to my chin and hair. As I tried to wipe it, she said "it's just water!", as if I was making a big deal about it. I did not know what it was and it was dripping out of my mouth. I did not like it. I asked her to hand me a tissue and she ignored me. She then turned on the fan saying she needed air, which made me very cold. I do not want Ronda to operate on me ever again unless she learns to respect patients and learns to be considerate.

My experience today was rather extensive, but it was explained the delay was due to an associate being absent unexpectedly. Moreover, part of my services today consisted of removing and replacing the composite on my K9 teeth. Upon me initiallyreceiving the services for this, I repeatedly asked if my actual teeth would be impacted in any form and was always told it would not. This continued throughout the years when they needed to be touched up, etc. Nonetheless, today when the composite was removed, I asked for a mirror to see my teeth and the response was, "you don't want to do that!" Once the tech left the room, I used my own personal mirror to view them and was completely shocked to see how small my teeth are!! Apparently, they were being shaved the entire time. I would never get the composite on any of my other teeth and have a major issue with the miscommunication because there is nothing that can be done about it now! I should have received accurate information on this process, which would have given me the option if I wanted to go this route.

I've been a patient of Dr. Backiel for many years. I've always been impressed by her professionalism, her bedside manner which is the best, and her knowledgeable and friendly staff. Her offices are bright and clean (the reason I chose herin the first place!) and the décor is modern and pleasing to the eye. She also keeps up with new practices and techniques so you're sure to get the best treatment options available. Also, it's important that when I get needles, I barely feel a thing.

It's tough finding just the right doctor. I've been a patient of Dr. Backiel for about ten years -- making an appointment is easy, I'm always seen on time (and with a smile), and costs are extremely reasonable. I no longerlive as close to this practice as I used to, but I'm so pleased with Dr. Backiel and her team that it makes the travel time worth it.
