Such a lovely dental appointment...like you. Ant usually use that descriptor, but in this case it’s completely accurate. Dr Baker is kind, careful, remembered to ask after my family and gives great advice. After seeing him in July I changedsome tooth brushing methods at his insistence that I had been doing it all wrong and had dramatic improvement. Add to that the fact that my appointment was at 4:30, I barely waited and was on the street by 5:00 and he is truly amazing!

It was hassel free. I walked in filled filled out the paperwork and was called within 10 mins. Everyone was kind. They weren't encouraging me to have unnecessary work which has been my experience at other dentist. It was the way thing should be. Thanks Dr. Backer!

My first visit was good but my second visit not too good. I have a phobia with the dentist far as pain the noise and all which I explained. However when he examine my tooth he said it was infected andI am surprise he didn’t offer the oral surgery. When it was time for my extraction I felt everything in the infected too and felt like I was being yank out the chair i was tearing up and cause my fear of the dentist even more. I was stitch up for about 3 weeks and they never even called to check to see how I was doing . Knowing I left the office in crucial pain. They only called 2 months later for a x - ray cause they forgot to take and can’t get bill . I didn’t like the 2 nd visit because he wasn’t no gently with me just criticizing me on why I took so long .

The office is borrowed time in another doctor's office. They don't have priority over any of the rooms and their system of scheduling doesn't interact with zocdoc properly. Had to wait over 2 hours after showing up to my appointment ontime. The doctor is a very sweet man who's good at what he does, but they really need to fix things on a logistical level.

I'm a huge fan of Dr. Backer and his office. I never thought I would say I'm a huge fan of any dentist, really. Both Dr. Backer and my dental hygienist, Jackie, were warm, engaged, compassionate, and patient. Not to mentiontotally insightful and expert in their recommendations and care. Feel lucky to have found such a great team in a really convenient location. Definitely recommend!

Dr.Backer is great which is why I continue to visit him. However, his front office staff is not great. Anytime you need something it needs to go through "Jackie" who is not the best at returning calls or following up. Apartfrom my own incident not getting the feedback I needed for my insurance claim, during my appointment while I was waiting to be seen there was another patient complaining to the secretary about an insurance mixup which also "Jackie" has failed to help them with.

Dr Backer is a professional who cares for his clients. He would rather save what is there than dismiss the problem. Floss and brush daily- is his key words. Do that and your smile will brighten everyone’s day.

My whole experience with Dr. Backer went great, except for the wait time. The weather was bad today and they were short on staff so Dr. Backer had to take care of a lot of things that are usually taken careof by others. I scheduled a second appointment for next week and I hope the wait time will be a lot more reasonable.
