customer-reviews-2I would recommend this office to EVERYONE! The staff is EXTREMELY friendly, courteous, and your appointment time is your appointment time! I wanted to get Invisalign and and was referred to them by the orthodontist in order to have my cleaning prior to getting/completing my Invisalign appointments; and they took me in right away! The fact that their chairs for service are massage chairs as well, truly a bonus! I’m very happy with Barbara Bell’s staff and service! (Nikiya M.)

Just wanted to thank Dr. Katie Bell and the assistant who helped me on Monday. I was so anxious and they were so fun and patient with me. After the procedure I was supposed to feel some sensitivity and probably some discomfort, but I never experienced those things. I can eat and drink like always. Also, during the procedure I didn’t feel a single pain or discomfort. So, I thought I needed to share my gratitude. Thanks to you too, Carolyn, for always receiving me with a smile, and for remembering me when I arrive. (Manuel P.)

Barbara, your daughter Katie did a great job patching my tooth. It is still holding up well and looks great. Your practice will continue to flourish when she takes over, if that is what you both want. You have trained her well. Looking forward to seeing you again. (Smith D.)

Going to the dentist has tended to be less than a pleasant experience and I should know having considerable dental work over the years. I must say that Dr Bell’s practice is quite a rewarding experience with excellent care and professional concern for the patient & outcome of the service provided. I highly recommend Dr. Bell’s Practice to Family & Friends and anyone who might ask. Thank You for taking sure excellent care of my dental health! (William R.)

I hate going to the dentist. HATE IT. Major anxiety. I also hate to feel pressured about cosmetics at the dentist (offered, fine, pressured, no). I just want my teeth to work and not be painful. The dentist is super nice, she understands my anxiety and reacts accordingly. And to boot she calls me by my common name, not my formal name, which surprisingly goes a long way in putting me at ease. She has been conservative with her treatment and tamed my overreactions. Very pleased so far! (Kathryn S.)

My family has been seeing Dr. Bell for a few years. The staff is very knowledgeable, and Dr. Bell is top notch. She is professional, kind, compassionate and funny too! We enjoy our regular visits she makes visiting the dentist a positive experience. (Tina T.)

Always the best care…Top notch customers service. Great conversation and explanation of care from both the hygienists and dentists. (Robert A.)

Wonderful Experience. Quick visit! I did not have to wait, and I received prompt, professional and gentle care. Looking forward to my next visit. (Elaine C.)

At my 6-month check I was greeted warmly by the front desk using my name as part of the greeting. I was taken back to have the dentist look at my teeth after waiting only a short time. The hygienist was friendly and thorough with my cleaning. She set up the next appointment before I even left the room and offered me a new toothbrush. (Doretta D.)

All around fantastic! Every visit I have had at Dr. Barbara Bell, DDS has been nothing but great! All of the staff are warm and welcoming, they are punctual, and the chairs have a massage option — always a major bonus for a busy, working mom! (Jessica A.)

For over the past ten years I’ve been extremely happy with the staff and services at Dr Bell’s and recommend her office to any that I meet. They have great schedule times, patiently explain what needs to be done and painlessly do the work. Thanks! (Dennis K.)

Super appointment. Dr. Bell is very professional, informed, friendly and compassionate! We love her! (Alice N.)

I was promptly ushered in for my tooth cleaning and examine by the Dental Hygienist. The cleaning was thorough and as I have sensitive upper gums, there was not even the ghost of a tickle. Well done! (John G.)

Best dentist ever! I love this office! (Patricia W.)

Excellent dental care. Dental care here has been great! Office staff is warm, welcoming and helpful and dental hygienists have been great too. (Marie S.)

I went in for my appointment feeling very anxious. From the moment I came in to the moment I left, I was treated with compassion. The staff is very professional. Thank you so much to the doctor and the staff that was there that day. I definitely will be back!! (Andrea G.)

I have been a patient at Dr. Bell’s office for many years – ever since they opened their Frederick office. I am greeted with a smile and cheery spirit each visit. I grind my teeth in my sleep but I have never been pushed on purchasing the guards (I explained that I have had them in the past but I take them out while sleeping – without knowing until I wake up with it stuck to my arm). I originally had the male dentist and then a petite woman dentist and now I have been seeing Dr, Bell. All of them have been great. Not sure of the reason for the turnaround but all were wonderful. I would highly recommend Dr, Bell’s office. (Michele T.)

Best dentist! I highly recommend Dr. Bell. I have been a patient of Dr. Bell for many, many years and she is fantastic! Dr. Bell is caring and thorough. She has a lovely, current facility and wonderful staff. They are all always pleasant, professional and easy to work with. I have recommended her to friends, and they were very pleased with Dr. Bell and have became regular patients. (Andree G.)

Our hygienist is absolutely wonderful. She is professional and friendly. It is great that my hygienist schedules my next appointment herself. This saves time for all. Dr. Bell is the best dentist our family has had. She has a wealth of knowledge concerning dentistry and has a genuine interest in her patients. (Sally H.)

Simply the Best. Dr. Barbara Bell and her team of professionals are the best dental experience ever. My crown popped off the night before and because they have early morning hours, they were able to see me right away. I met the doctor, who worked on my teeth for the first time, and she was able to reapply my crown right away. From the front desk, Carolyn, to the dentist chair, with Nicole and the doctor, this office is simply the best. (Deborah G.)

Happy camper. I have been a patient for a number of years now. Every time I come in for an appointment, I am greeted with a wonderful personality I am seeing on time and on several occasions have brought myself or family members in for dental emergencies and always been treated well. (Lawrence F.)

My experience was very pleasant. At my previous dentist, they were always pushing products and extra procedures. So nice not to have that pressure. Finally, I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the music. (Angela S.)

Great dentist, great staff! The doctor was very gentle and reassuring. After having a bad experience at another dental office, I had some apprehension about dental work! She was methodical, reassuring and explained each process. She found that I will need a crown and a filling. I did not hesitate to book my appointment with her! Carolyn, at the front desk was great about fitting me in right away, even though I wasn’t an existing patient. (Sue K.)
