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.

What I love most about Dr. B, as I call her, is that she remembers things about you from conversations had at previous visits and she is very kind-hearted and gentle. This kind of rapport with her patients is why I like coming for my dental visits and the staff is great too.

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

I consider Dr. Bernardes a complete professional who is competent,thorough, and highly skilled in all phases of treating her patients. She can do the most delicate dental work so well and so gently that one feels relaxed and peaceful during treatment. My visit today was on time, efficient, without even the smallest discomfort, and the work was done by Dr. Bernardes herself. I am always glad to refer friends and family to her dental practice.

The service was terrible! The worst experience I ever had! They had the wrong billing information and they sent a debt collector, without even calling in advance, later on they didn't even try to fix it. I would strongly discourage to visit this dentist
