I was late, but was still seen promptly! Everyone was extremely nice and Dr. Backer is very conversational so it's comfortable. The office is clean (waiting area and actual rooms) and the a/c was blasting. My dental cleaning was very thorough and didn't feel rushed, but also didn't take a long time. It left a good impression on me being that this was my first time here.

He is a friendly professional and begins his appointments on time. I'm terrified of dental work but he has a calming effect when he's by your side. I would recommend him to my family and friends.

Excellent that he was able to see me on short notice on Easter Sunday. Not much wait, basically just long enough to fill out the paperwork. I've had a toothache for probably five or more years, and in the last couple of days it has become unbearable. He's the first dentist to even admit that something's wrong with my tooth, most keep telling me I'm fine and I just need to use Sensodyne toothpaste. His suggestion is a root-canal though, and wasn't able to do it today. Recommended me to someone else for tomorrow morning, we'll see how it goes.

Had a tooth issue that could not wait...desperate, I turned to Zoc Doc, it led me to Dr. B and I could not have been more pleased. The service was professional, informative, efficient. In less than 24 hours I was treated and on path to recovery. I am going back in to do more work.

Dr. Backer was great at removing my wisdom tooth, however his receptionist failed to tell me he didn't take my insurance after two visits and I had to pay Dr. Backer full price. Double and triple check he takes your insurance before getting treatment.

Dr. Backer is an exceptionally patient doctor who takes the time to answer all of my questions. The whole staff works together to create an unusually friendly, warm environment. Dr. Backer has been incredibly financially generous with my treatment plan. I am very grateful to have found him. He is reminiscent of a dying age of doctors who cultivate genuine relationships with their patients rather than treating them quickly and charging them exorbitantly.

Doctor Backer has been my go-to dentist during the four years I lived in New York and I have nothing but praises to for his office. He is friendly, professional and great at his work. If you are looking for a new dentist, this may be the end of your search!

The wait time wasn't my biggest issue with this Dr. Backer. My biggest issue with Dr. Backer was his attitude. I went to him based on a procedure recommendation from another dentist and I wasn't sure if they dentist was being truthful (I've dealt this dental dishonest in the not so distant past). Throughout the less than 10 minutes that I spent with Dr. Backer, he was dismissive and condescending. It was as though my appointment was a waste of his time. And although he said yes, the procedure was unnecessary, I'm not entirely sure if I believe him because he was disinterested in me from the start of the appointment! Now, I need to seek out a third opinion, hopefully from a professional that will take my dental concern seriously.

1 st off... i was greeted with a pleasant smile. And how are you. I like that cause I been placed where they act like they don't even see you. Then, I met Dr Backer he is extremely nice. He took the time to explain what he was doing. He also made sure my insurance covered all the work!! And the hygienist Maria she was great. My basic cleaning like a deep cleaning. I will be smiling all the time because of these guys!! Thanks!!

Great doctor and dental assistance. The receptionist made an error in my billing and charged me the wrong amount. They fixed it though, but she had a sour look on her face despite the fact it was her error. Regardless, I would recommend this dentist because Dr. Backer is awesome.

I really feel like Dr. Backer cared even though it was my first time as a new patient. He came out and spoke to me before he brought me into the back to apologize about having to reschedule the previous appointment. I am going back on Sunday because I have a bunch of teeth problems but I'm glad I found him.

Was not very interested in his service. He suggested not to do my fillings now I am in pain and he wanted to shave my gums. He wanted to do unnecessary procedures probably because i have good insurance. never again !
