Dr. Backer and his staff were friendly, speedy, and thorough. A positive experience all around, especially considering I hadn't visited the dentist in a few years.

Dr. Backer is great! Today he completed the first filling I've had since leaving my childhood dentist—on a front tooth, no less. I was nervous, but the procedure was painless (local anesthesia) and Dr. Backer and his assistant were extremely professional. He restored the tooth to its pre-cavity appearance. Took less than an hour. I highly recommend him.

This was my first time seeing Dr Becker. He is knowledgeable, kind and thorough. He explained everything he was seeing on my xrays, and answered all my questions. The dental hygenist saw me right away, but there was a bit of a wait for the doctor who was with another patient. He really seems to take time with each of his patients. He is does not seem rushed. I will be returning for my dental procedure.

Dr. Backer is the best! He is so patient, non-judgemental. He listens and gives feedback. Even though he is younger than me he reminds me of my father. His smile and words are very caring. I met his wife and son today. The office is very clean an calming. When I returned home I talked with my son about my visit with my "papa dentist". The front office is awesome with current magazines as well. They have water available for clients . I feel like this is really family dentistry at its best.

A solid dentist. Dr. Backer made sure he answered all my questions. I really liked how they take pictures of the trouble spots in your mouth so you can see what they are talking about. I don't know why more dentists don't do this. Finally, his work was surprisingly pain free, and my whole face wasn't numbed with anesthesia either. He used the perfect amount.

This was a horrible visit. First, their internet was down and they refused to take my credit card information to process it when the internet was back up. The receptionist wanted to turn me away. Second, it took me a total of 2 and a half hours for what was a 30 minute procedure. Third, the nurse laughed at me when I said I bought temporarily fillings for my chipped filling. Fourth, my mouth was not completely numb when I had the filling redone and the dentist proceeded anyway. This was a horrible experience. I do not recommend them at all. I overpaid to have a painful procedure. Not good!

I'm pretty terrified of dentists — sorry! — so when I heard that I had to have five cavities filled, I was petrified. But Dr. Backer made the whole process completely fear-free — really! he did! — and before I knew it, the appointment was over. I felt zero pain, and had no discomfort over subsequent days. I highly recommend Dr. Backer.

The one thing I feared as I was going into the appointment was the application of the local anesthesia and it was almost painless except for the "pinch" in the beginning that is always promised. To top it all off the dentist only performed what was necessary on my tooth (so I didn't need an actual root canal to my delight!). Great staff and great dentist.

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.
