It was excellent. I felt like he took time to find out what I needed and treated me like a person not just a set of teeth. After my last visit to the dentist this was a dramatic improvement.

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.

I was skeptical about the wait time during my first visit to Dr. Backer, but I stand corrected. He had all his staff in the office today and I was seen within five Minutes of my appointment. Extremely happy and looking forward to me next appointment.

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.

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 extremelyprofessional. 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 ofa 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 sontoday. 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 dentistsdon'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 totalof 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!
