As always, the entire staff is welcoming and very responsive. I have been a patient of Dr. David Bell for 30 plus years and continue to have “perfect” teeth. I am pleased to have Dr. Brian Bell here as well; I know my dental needs will continue to be well taken care of.

I’ve been coming to this office for at least thirty years, and I can’t say enough about the staff, it’s always been a good experience. When I first came here, it was Dr.Herzig and he was great, and then Dr. Bell took over and he was a great fit, I highly recommend this office to everyone I know.

I have been a patient at The Dental Center since 1990. I have been extremely pleased with the service, professionalism and kindness they have shown me over all these years. The office staff and hygienists are fantastic!!!! They are the main reason I staff with this practice. My husband, children, and extended family are all patients here for the same reason. Great practice and wonderful staff!!

The whole staff is outstanding!

From all my cleanings twice a year to the new crown to the ease of scheduling, the professionalism throughout the office is second to none.

I would recommend anyone looking for a dentist to go to The Dental Center.

very pleasant office staff, familiar with insurance, easy to get an appointment that fits in my schedule. Dr. Bell is very gentle and makes the visit pleasant

Jon T.

Oct 13, 2014

Always accommodating when it comes to scheduling and very helpful in explaining how my insurance works, and why I owe what I owe. The dentists are all very friendly and go to great pains to explain everything they are doing and why. They also provide me with great visuals so I understand what is going on in my mouth. When it comes to crowns I never feel pressured, and I appreciate the different options I am given. So far I have received two crowns and have had no problems with either. I trust my dentists to give their best efforts always to insure my teeth are well taken care of. I wish my medical doctors could be more like them.

I’ve been coming here for over 40 years and can’t say enough good things about Dr.Bell and his staff. I have a big fear of the dentist and they do a good job about putting me at ease.

Meghan C.

Sep 26, 2014

Dr. Brian is the best dentist ever. He knows how fearful I am and always takes his time & checks to make sure I am doing ok through the appointment. He has also made himself available for all of my teeth emergencies (cracked a tooth twice in my sleep). The following day he fit me in so we could repair the tooth. He truly goes above and beyond what I’d expect from my dentist.If you are looking for a new dentist I highly reccommend the dental center. Not only is Dr. Brian great, the hygienists and the staff are also very knowledgeable and friendly!

I am not one to overly compliment any business unless they have truly swept me off my feet, when it comes to Brian Bell and his staff, that is an understatement. I have found it very rare that you leave a dentist or doctor appointment smiling, cavity or no cavity I have left The Dentist gleaming. I cannot compliment Dr. Bell and his staff enough, they are amazing, funny, attention to detail, real people. Unlike any other dentist office I have been to they do not create more problems =higher bills than those that truly exist. They are fair and honest people (really hard to come by these days) especially in the medical field. I have been seeing Brian Bell as my dentist for the past couple years, being the extreme perfectionist that I am I have wanted to straighten my teeth for quite some time. I approached many orthodontists that quoted me in the 5000-6000 range for Invisalign and/or adult braces. When I asked Brian Bell for his opinion he told me he could fix my teeth to my perfection standards (which are the highest they come) for 1/4 of the cost and in half the amount of time. 6 Weeks later I am here writing this review because I cannot boast about my experience enough! In less than 2 months my teeth are EXACTLY what I dreamed of. In the 6 short weeks it took, Dr. Bell saw me almost weekly to ensure everything was on the right path for perfection. He was attentive, informative and always made time to squeeze me in. Not only did he align my teeth but he also whitened them. In the past 2 weeks I have had people chase me down to compliment my smile . If you are back and forth on invisalign due to age, fear of how it will look, or contemplating if it is worth it or not, do not think TWICE about seeing Dr. Bell. I have recently moved to New York City, my passion for Brian Bell and his team is so strong, he will remain my dentist. If you are looking for a dentist, please remember if I will travel 2 hours to continue seeing him, you should too.

My experience with dental treatment has not always been pleasant because I get so anxious and frankly cannot take pain very well. But with Dr. Bell, I can truly say he is so gentle, and doesn’t let me have any pain. He is a competent Dentist that I recommend highly.

If it wasn’t for this practice I would have had all my teeth pulled. The doctors and staff put me on the right track and were able to correct years of poor dentistry. I have medical issues that complicate my dental care and the care I am given has been tremendous.

Excellent technicians. I’m familiar with many Dental offices in the Hartford County area & these Doctors are in the top 5% of their field. Dr’s & all staff are gentle, professional, experienced & pro-active to “help you” keep your dental needs from becoming unwanted emergency issues! Costs are appropriate & in line for the treatment. No hidden costs or add on surprises. Well worth your time to try them out. I have been a patient for 20+ years & all my referrals are still patients at The Dental Center.

I have been a patient of Dr. Bell since 1985, I have nothing but good things to report.I have physical problems that make dentistry a nightmare for me but Dr. Bell always rises to the occasion and gets me through the process with his quick wit and sense of humor.

Feb 02, 2014

I recently moved out of the area and still come back to Newington to go the the dental center. I’ve gone to see both David and Brian for appointments and both doctors are extremely nice and truly care about the quality of their work. I tend to ask a ton of questions about what exactly what all the dental codes mean and what they’re doing to my teeth – they are both very patient and honest and take the time to explain on a level I understand. They seem to really care about their patients and always seem to help fit me in anytime I’m heading back that way – wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Sarah R.

Feb 02, 2014

Friendly staff. I have been going here for years. Both Dr. David Bell and Dr. Brian Bell are great! Dr. Brian also did my Invisalign case. It was nice being able to stay in the practice and not have to find an orthodontist- especially when you already have a relationship and trust your doctors!
