    Excellent dental practice. They are caring and professional. Betar dental attends to every detail and makes each patient feel like they are the only patient in the office!

    I love Betar Dental. The technicians and doctors are compassionate and understanding I suffer a great deal of anxiety when seeing the dentist. They all tell me what they are doing and give me frequent breaks. I highly recommend.

    Ann of Altoona, PA

    Very thorough, patient and qualified.


    Staff & Dentist were great! My son fell on the playground and I was concerned about his teeth. They examined him and addressed my concerns without hesitation.

    They are fantastic with kids here. If you have a young first time patient or maybe a child who is a bit nervous? This will put them right at ease.
