Dr. Bernardes is a caring, attentive, and efficient dentist who pays attention to details. She always explains what she is going to do and carefully and skillfully executes it. Today, she had to fill some cavities and take an impression for a new crown. I was not too excited about visiting the dentist this morning, but Dr. Bernardes' professionalism and skill put me at ease. In addition, her assistant and front office staff were kind and efficient. Don't let the outside appearance of the office building fool you. You will get quality care from Dr. Bernardes and her office staff.

Dr. Bernardes has been taking care of me since 2011. Her practice is very professional and a pleasant place to go (even though going to the dentist is not high on anyone's list that I'm aware of) even when I'm grumpy...and yes, I have been.

Communication is lacking with the doctor and the secretaries. They should do everything they can to make sure you understand the plan of care, your options, and what you might have to pay.

Dr Elenir Bernardes was fabulous! As nervous as I was about having a wisdom tooth pulled, she put me at ease. The procedure was completed with very little pain. She took time to go over the care of my mouth afterwards. Highly recommend Dr.Bernardes

She's the best in prothedentistry (crowns) in my opinion, based on six implants in the past and one upcoming. And she cooperates with dental insurers. Ray E.

Upon arrival I noticed how clean the reception area was; that to me is a great sign. The receptionist was very inviting and friendly. I was 20 minutes early for my appointment and I was called back within 10 minutes of arrival. My actual appointment went very well, Dr. Bernardes was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would come back and recommend her to others.

I always appreciate that the dentist herself does my cleaning and I'm very satisfied with this service. I was disappointed, yet again with my interactions with staff. In the past, a receptionist was quite curt and a bit condescending with me. Today, I entered and approached a receptionist who literally told me to "sit down" while she took a phone call (no "please", no "one moment", etc.). Afterwards, the dentist herself was very condescending. Bedside manner was terrible. As I attempted to relay my concerns and belief that my chart was mixed up, she cut me off in mid-sentence at least twice by loudly talking over me. Later, she asked the hygienist to share her notes with me to prove that I was wrong. This guy didn't even understand what or why he was showing me the information. The info actually proved my point and at no time did I ask them to fix a crown (which was fixed over a yr ago by my previous dentist). I left feeling very frustrated, and this isn't the first time. Not sure that I'll return. Definitely won't be referring anyone here.

I was not very enthusiastic about my visit yesterday but was pleasantly surprised and very satisfied with Dr. Bernardes. She made me feel very comfortable and was very good at explaining everything she was going - excellent bedside manner! I would love for her to be my son's dentist. The front desk receptionist was also wonderful - very helpful; seemed to be on top of everything. Great first visit! Brenda
