Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Backer was attentive, he explained everything to me. He was distractive and funny while giving the Anesthesia (needle) which is the worse part for me. I highly recommend Dr. Backer and Jackie his assistant was great as well. I was comfortable there and will travel for his service
Satisfied with the service.
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.
Dr. Backer was great. The service was all around excellent.
always amazing., very concern about how your feeling. great experience.
He was warm friendly and efficient. I will be returning for a follow up appointment. I would recommend to friends and family
Dr. Backer was friendly and explained both my diagnosis and my options for treatment. I was seen quickly.
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.
Was able to take me on very short notice, and provided good, fast service, and fixed the issue at a reasonable price. Would highly recommend.
It was my first time visiting this office. I was very happy that I didn't have to wait. At first, I was slightly nervous, but Dr. Backer was very professional. He answered all of my questions and concerns. I immediately made another appointment.
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.
Very pleasant and professional. From the front dentist to doctor
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.
He is an excellent, thorough dentist. Gentle, clear and extraordinarily knows what he is doing as a dentist
Dr. Backer is very knowledgeable, thorough, very detailed and makes sure your questions are answered. I was very comfortable with him the few times I already went to him and his staff are friendly and very helpful. I would most definitely recommend him!!
Mr. Backer and his team was great! easy to talk to and quick! I would come back again!!
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.
All staff was very professional and friendly. Dr. Backer gave me a lot of information and made sure that all of my questions were answered.
The office was very clean and beautiful, and the staff were all very friendly. The doctor was very thorough and kind. I will definitely continue seeing him and highly recommend him!
My visit with Dr. Backer was great. Dr. Backer was very courteous and professional as he attended to my dental needs. He took time to explain the procedure and answered my questions. I felt calm and relaxed and was thankful that I was seen within 10-15 minutes. I would highly recommend Dr. Backer.
Very thoughtful. Took his time and asked a few questions then quickly did my exam and cleaning himself. Great service!
I had an excellent experience. I went in for a dental cleaning, and the doctor was tremendously thorough, very knowledgable, and very gentle. Very friendly too! I highly recommend him.
Very personable and thorough. The doctor and staff were great! Dr. addressed all my concerns. Will definitely be back.
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.
Zero wait time, friendly, informative, and careful...I had a great experience!
Dr. Backer was very personable, which is greatly appreciated when going into get an extraction done. I was taken care of right away. I was in and out, done with the procedure in 90 minutes. I would highly recommend him.
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.
Dr. Backer has been my dentist for over 10 years. He is a wonderful person and an amazing dentist. His staff is highly professional and courteous. There is no doubt that this practice stands among the best in the city.
It was great. Quick and mostly painless :)
Dr Backer is the most personable medical professional i've ever encountered. There's no one else you should see.
Everything was good. He was very nice with me.
Friendly staff. Wait time was extremely long
Very pleased with Dr. Backer and his staff.
Everyone was very nice. Would return!
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.
Kept me informed throughout the whole process
He was very personable and professional. I waited less than 5 minutes.
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.
I was late, but Dr. Backer was nonetheless accomodating and patient. i have had a filling done here (porcelain) as well as regular maintenance. Clean office, professional, courteous, and competent staff. I highly recommend him!
Dr. Backer was friendly, courteous, and helpful. He was willing to answer any questions I had.
Both doctor and staff were very professional, cordial and helpful. Everything you could hope to get out of a dentist appointment!
Painless. Quick. Would definitely recommend them to my family and friends.
I don't hate the dentist anymore!
This is an awesome place to clean ur teeth. I would highly recommend it to anyone! Thank you and thank you for the awesome job!
DDS Frantz Backer is a very good dentist. I was comfortable and he was very attentive to me.
I had an awesome experience. I was seen quickly. The office was clean and modern. Everyone was polite. The Dr. was relatable and comforting throughout the process. Seeing him again in 2 weeks.!
Dr. Backer was kind, patient, and clear. I am a very nervous dental patient and had to go through a root canal. There were some hiccups, but Dr. Backer always set me at ease and was wonderful to work with. I'll definitely be back (though I wish I didn't have to be)!
I am satisfied with the attention of the doctor and his assistants.
Dr. Backer, is very knowledgable of the dentistry field, he does a very thorough oral exam and his office is very clean! The staff was great also.
As others have said, really liked the hygienist. The girls working in the office are nice too. I went in primarily for issues with wisdom teeth, xray machine was not working when I went in, would have liked to have known that before going in for the appointment since it was one of the main reasons I booked it. Dr. Backer spent more time talking to me about Invisalign than my other concerns (I think it's important to note that I already had braces, with the exception of one tooth, they are all pretty straight). I would go back to get my teeth cleaned, that's about it.
I have been a patient of Dr. Backer for about 7 years now. He is always pleasant and efficient. He may even make you laugh from time to time. He is a great dentist and I would recommend him to anyone. I have kept him as my primary dentist because he is awesome. Have a great visit.
Everyone was really slow. I arrived on time but was still in the waiting room for an hour. Once I was on the dentist's chair I still had to wait a while until I saw him. Basically for a quick consultation and a cleaning I was at the office for over 2 hours. Also no one was speaking clearly, a lot of mumbling. As a patient I would imagine that the employees at this office to be the authority on their fields of expertise - however that is not the impression I got.
I was in the chair for an hour and a half while Dr. Backer came in and out with various failed attempts to provide the emergency service I required. I wish I had waited to see my regular dentist instead.
Very nice man and thourogh. Explained every detail
I was very impressed and happy that I was able to find a dentist who is open on Sundays.
Very thorough exam! Dr. and Associates all have excellent bedside manner and were extremely knowledgeable!
Dr. Backer remains the only dentist that I actually don't mind visiting. He is professional, caring, and responsive to my fear of pain.
The doctor is very professional, knowledgeable and k
I have a fear of dentists and avoid going to them unless its absolutely necessary. I was an hour late for this appointment and I was still seen immediately. The staff were kind and efficient. Dr. Backer was easygoing and professional and put me at ease. He explained everything and cleaned my teeth quickly and thoroughly. I have low tolerance for pain and was anxious. However there was no pain to complain of. I am not hesitant to return to him, and for me, that says a lot.
Everyone is very nice and made me feel comfortable. The cleaning went very well and am looking forward to my follow up appointment with my new regular dentist.
Dr. Backer's staff isn't very helpful. I was never told how long I would have to wait, or what would happen next. People were nice enough, so it wasn't awful, just not 5-star service. Dr. Backer doesn't have a panoramic x-ray machine, so a member of his staff had to take what seemed like 20 individual x-rays to get a full picture. This wasn't a very pleasant experience, again, because I was never told how many x-rays would be taken, and nobody explained what was going on. However, Dr. Backer himself was great. He personally cleaned my teeth (which is unusual in my experience with other dentists) and then gave me a thorough consultation. I haven't seen a dentist in a long time, and was expecting a reprimand, but he was quite nice and encouraging. I've been postponing a wisdom tooth extraction for about 4 years, and he simply laid out the facts for me and referred me to a doctor who would be able to handle my procedure.
I'm so glad I found Dr. Baker.
Seems intelligent and knowledgeable, has friendly staff. However he was dismissive of one of my issues and had a bumbling manner, which I found disconcerting. Will go back though and give him another shot.
Very comfortable and practically no pain during cleaning.
Good doctor!! Will be going back to him for sure
I never wait long and I get in and out pretty quickly. He is very nice and professional, and I love that he is open on Sundays.
The staff was very pleasant and accomodating,but the wait was too long. I enjoyed my visit however, the staff and Doctor made me comfortable.
I had a 9am appointment, he showed up at the office at 9:02, which is fine. His nurse rushed me to take Xrays, I think she just wants to raise $$ for the office. (it didn't cost me, but maybe unnecessary?). Otherwise, he was mostly knowledgeable, and helpful. And nice.
He did a really thorough job and it wasn't painful at all. I will definitely be back.
Extremely light hands which meant little to no pain at all.
The whole visit was just a commercial for invisiline braces. I went in to get my teeth cleaned and my wisdom teeth pulled, which they assured me over the phone they would be able to do all in one day. They didnt. They took xrays and kept asking me about braces (my teeth are straight!). I made a follow up appointment for the wisdom teeth and cleaning. I called them to confirm the appointment the day before the date and time they had written on a card for me, and they did not have me booked. They had me booked for another two weeks later, and they had me booked for 3 separate appointments, after assuring me that it would be only one. They also informed me during this call that the price would be significantly higher than what they had quoted me in person. I canceled my appointment at that point and I would not recommend this practice to anyone.
He is:Professional,friendlily, I'm satisfied.
Dr. Backer and his assistants were amazing. Just got back from my appointment and I have another one next week. Can't wait to have some healthy teeth !!!
Interestingly enough this is actually the very first time that I met a dentist that met all of my expectations. Dr. Backer was thorough with my examinations and I did not feel rushed at all.The location speaks for itself and is in a good neighborhood. The office is clean, comfortable and offers privacy. The receptionist as well as the rest of the staff were nice and professional. I will continue to receive dental care there without any hesitations.
My son, Elijah met with Dr. Backer and stated that he liked this dentist (despite getting a filling). We saw him right away without any wait. He was very gentle with my son knowing that he may be afraid of needles. As a parent this is very important because I want my son to feel comfortable (which e completely did). My son will continue to see Dr. Backer because of his competency, nice office, and a well mannered staff.
Dr. Backer and his staff are amaziinggg. Today was my first visit and I most definitely will go back to them. Dr. Backer is very courteous and makes you feel comfortable from the first moment he walks in. He is also very professional and knowledgable since he did a great job with my teeth. The staff is also very friendly and works efficiently. They are reaaally great!
I found him to be extremely knowledgeable and he took the time to explain everything that he was doing or going to do. The staff was extremely kind and helpful and the utilities are clean! I would definitely recommend Dr. Backer.
He was extremely attentive...
Very thorough and was willing to answer lots of questions. Office staff also very friendly.
I was very happy with my consultation with Dr. Backer. Based on the opinion of another Dentist, I was afraid that I would need a very expensive implant, but Dr, Backer took several x-rays and photos of the tooth and determined that it was still healthy and most likely would only need a less expensive root canal and crown. This service was offered for free.
He was very patient and listened intently to my concerns. He also made me feel comfortable being in a dentist's chair again. The staff in general was very courteous and friendly. They explained procedures before performing them. I had a great experience and look forward to making my follow - up appointments. I have already started to recommend him to fammily members.
Dr. Backer came at a high recommendation to me from my boyfriend, and once in his care I could understand why! The doctor, hygienist, and receptionist were all very pleasant and made my first time at the dentist in about a decade a far less scary experience.
Dr. Backer and his staff are fabulous! I have recommend him many times to friends and family.
DR.BACKER AND STAFF WERE VERY POLITE, INFORMATIVE AND NICE.
Dr. Frantz made feel very comfortable and at ease.
Dr. Backer is the utmost professional with an amicable bedside manner. Support staff are top notch and super communicative.
He was polite. He explained everything that was wrong with my mouth and that needed to be done. His assistants are very nice. This was great experience
Dr. Backer went beyond the extra mile to address my crisis by seeing me without notice and after normal office hours.
I made an on line appointment for the same day, received treatment beyond my expectations. Great support staff too.
It was great.. Dr Backer was very nice. It was a good experience...Thanks a million....
Dr Backer and the whole staff were WONDERFUL! Everything was explained and they made sure I was 100% knowing of what was going on. Great place!
Very money hungry and pushed procedures i could not afford and told him i could not andsuggested procedures where as.more simpler surgeries would graver sufficed
