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 !

I had an emergency dental issue on a Saturday night in Brooklyn. Half of my tooth broke off. Dr. Backer was able to see me the following morning. He replaced an entire filling and half the side of my tooth in 30 minutes. And he did a great job.

This office's staff is great. They are polite, friendly, and know how to ease of any tension you may or may not have. They also always make sure you're as comfortable as can be, which really helps people feel like they are a part of the diagnosis, rather than feel invaded and much like a lab rat. Frantz Backer, DDS is a very nice, polite man, but speaks in a low voice and it might be a little difficult to hear him! Also, when I came to my first follow up appointment, there were around two different intervals of a wait time of 20 mins, and I ended up being there a little longer than expected. But, no one can be perfect all the time.
