Written Testimonials

The most outstanding care and service ever received. Dr. Bernstein and his staff are the most knowledgable and compassionate professionals you will ever encounter. As a dental phobic patient, Dr. Bernstein patiently addressed my concerns with empathy and genuine concern. Would rate the overall experience a 10+++

— Laurel G.

My visit to Dr. Bernstein’s office was the first positive dental appointment I had in my entire life. The office is state-of-the-art, yet has a very soothing and elegant atmosphere and is not sterile or scary at all. The staff is super friendly and comforting and the doctor is very professional, yet funny and understanding of my fears. I needed a root canal treatment right away, so I was referrerd to a nearby periodontist and got an appointment the same day. We opted for the conscious sedation method and not only was I not scared, nor do I remember much of anything. To my amazement, Dr. B showed up during the procedure to make sure everyhing was going fine! I couldn’t believe he would take the time to go over to the periodontist’s place to check on me personally! He is really invested in the well-being of his patients, I couldn’t have had a better experience! I can’t wait to go back to Dr. Bernstein’s office and tackle my other dental problems that I’ve put off for far too long because of my fears!

After dealing with the general population of dentists and Dr’s because my child has a needle phobia – we now know there is a heaven and it is right here on earth in Dr. Bernstein’s office. They get it!! My daughter was so comfortable with the sedation that she could be rushed off for an emergency root canal and only felt slightly scared. Why don’t all dentist get on board with comfort dentistry??? Thank you Dr. Bernstein and your wonderful staff.

“Thank you for making me so comfortable–you always seem to do the impossible–reduce my anxiety and fear!”

– Tricia Hites

“Just a note to thank you for the great job you did on my mouth. Our patients are rarely capable of making a judgment on the quality of dental service performed, but as a dentist myself the first thing I did was to use my intra-oral camera to check out the margins and the occlusion. You passed with flying colors. Sometimes we take our skills for granted, but let me thank you for your achievements and expertise to perform the involved dental procedure in a minimal number of visits. I know and appreciate the work and dedication needed to get you to the level you are.

I have enclosed some before and after photos, quite an improvement I think you will agree. This is the first morning in my office since you completed the restoration and already a patient complimented me on my teeth and smile.

I wish you continued success, and thanks again.”

– Roger A. Foulk, DDS

“Congratulations on winning the 2002 Dental Practice of the Year Award.
Your ability to provide quality care at a time when the dental and medical profession is being challenged to streamline services and work with managed care is to be congratulated. No doubt you have worked hard to bring your practice to this level of excellence, and it must bring you satisfaction to see that you efforts have not been in vain.

Good luck with continued success in providing quality dental services.”

“I am absolutely thrilled with my new look! My teeth are straight and white. What a difference from my old crooked and stained ones.

No longer am I embarrassed to smile and imagining people around me thinking how bad I looked. Now I’m fully confident to smile freely, knowing my mouth looks great. Friends say I look ten years younger—the nicest compliment of all!

You and your staff were so kind and considerate of me throughout the entire process. It was hard work for you, but you always made me feel relaxed.

Thank you very much for everything!”

-Susan Johnson

“Thank you for the luxurious spa bleaching experience! Deborah and I went to the Claremont afterwards and enjoyed the Caesar salad with Dungeness crab (‘white’ food). Thanks again!”
John Kwan, D.D.S.

“This letter is to let you know how it has changed my life! I’m smiling again! My friends have mentioned how much more cheerful I am! My children say the change is dramatic. I’m going out with friends for dinner, I’m entertaining again, visiting friends at their invitation, and certainly seeing my children and grandchildren more often. (Oh what a smile can do!)

I wish to thank you, Dr. Bernstein. When I first came to your office I was greeted with a warm feeling. You and your lovely staff put me at ease instantly. You are an excellent dentist, very professional, you made it look easy. Having worked in my younger days for some fine dentists, I know it takes much skill. I would recommend you ‘in a heart beat.’

Thank you for giving me a new lease on life! (and a lovely smile!)”

– Mrs. Jean Evart

“Thanks for being there for me last week when I needed your expert 2nd opinion for my aging mouth! Your advice eased my mind and was much appreciated. Please wine and dine (your wife) in lieu of the “professional” fee you would not accept.”

-Joel Piser, M.D.

“Thank you, thank you, and thank you! My new smile has really been a lift for me! Friends and clients all tell me I look different, younger and happier. Some of them never figure out why and I just love to keep them guessing! You were absolutely right about how my new smile would have a big impact on my looks and my life. I should have listened to you a couple of years sooner! Thank you so much.”

– Patricia Bennett

“Just a note to let you know we arrived home safely and I am ecstatic about my teeth! They are truly a work of art! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I even had some ladies stop me in the Admitting office at the hospital today to check them out. Rich thinks they are beautiful too and the people I work with were really impressed.

You are one of the kindest people I have ever met. And a gentle dentist, too.

Anyway, thank you! So much! I have been blessed to meet you (and your staff). Having the gift of the veneers was just icing on the cake.

God bless you and yours!”

– Carol Milliron (Mrs. Pacific Northwest)

“I am very pleased and excited about my “new smile”. The technology is fantastic and Dr. Bernstein is very highly skilled in its application. I was particularly pleased with my wife’s response when she saw my new look for the first time. Wow! What a boost to our marriage!”

– Raymond G. Bryant

“Dr. Bernstein and his staff are the best! I also travel from San Francisco to continue coming. As a client for more than 7 years I have hugely appreciated their attention to my comfort. The real care they bring to every appointment and their cutting-edge professionalism. I trust them all completely and enjoy my visits. The blankets, soft music, views of fruit trees make the time relaxing. Dr. Bernstein has also provided 1st rate referrals—from oral surgery to gum surgery. I have been very, very pleased with every referral. Thank you all! And thank you for the birthday cake!”

-Heather Corcoran

“On August 30th I had a filling replaced. As usual your work was excellent, painless, and very fast. You are an outstanding dentist, whose professional proficiency never ceases to impress me.

That day, I may have appeared a little tired and you noticed it. Indeed I was. It was so thoughtful of you to call me at home later that evening to inquire from my wife if everything was OK. I did go to bed early that evening and, of course, was back to full speed the next day. My appearance of being a little tired had nothing to do with the very fine dentistry, but rather from a little too much work in too short a time.

Now as impressed as I always have been with your skill and knowledge, I am equally impressed with your sensitivity and caring. You exemplify the best in your profession and I am grateful to be one of your clients.”
