My dental hygienist, Mary, is always has the most upbeat personality & makes me look forward to coming in to get my teeth cleaned (not the most exciting to do on the calendar!). She's so personable & also great at explaining what she's doing and breaking down any recommendations she suggests. She takes her time & is very thorough, making light conversation that makes the visit enjoyable.

StarStarStarStarStar Great practice —    (Patient since 2015)

In the 10 years I have lived in the greater Boston area, I have tried many different dentists. But once I found South Boston Dental Associates, I will never go anywhere else (even though it now is 30 minutes from where I live). They are accommodating, professional, and trustworthy. You never feel like they are trying to do unnecessary treatments and they explain everything from start to finish. I actually enjoy dentist visits.

I have always feared the dentist but since finding this office, that has changed. I am always greeted with the warmest welcome from Amanda at the front desk and have the sweetest hygenist! The dentist has patience with my fears and I trust we will never do anything not necessary - unfortunately that is not the case everywhere! I trust I am always in the best care. I’m very grateful I found them!

I can't talk for any one else, but I believe I have the best doctor, (Dr. Ferro) she not only listens to me, she does everything that needs to be done, she realizes that elderly people like myself, sometime do not have the financial resources to have expensive procedures and is still considerate enough to help me out, I want to thank her for that!! Dr Ferro's assistant is so friendly and makes you feel as ease. I want to thank Ann for cleaning my teeth she does the best job ever!

StarStarStarStarStar First Time Here and Loved It! —    (Patient since 2018)

I switched to SBDA from a co-worker recommendation and am so happy I did! The staff is super friendly, they were running on schedule and took the time to answer all questions I have as well as explain proper dental care beyond the "brush and floss twice a day" standard.


StarStarStarStarStar Friendly and flexible —    (Patient since 2015)

I have been going to South Boston Dental Associates for over 3 years and I have always found that they are extremely friendly and very flexible to my schedule. I have had to make late changes and they have worked with me to figure out solutions each time. Though I am mostly going for routine cleanings, I have had to have a couple last-minute emergency procedures and they have accommodated my needs and have done great work.

StarStarStarStarStar Dr. Ferro is a great addition to the team!!! —    (Patient since 1999)

In the 20 years I've been coming to SBDA I have had a handful of different dentists. They have all been very good, but I can say with certainty that Dr. Ferro is my new favorite. She is as thorough and professional as any, but much more transparent and personable than most. She is able to translate her observations into layman's terms, and will take as much time as needed to make sure I fully understand both the condition and any options. The anxiety factor has dropped from an 8 to a 3 with Dr. Ferro.

StarStarStarStarStar Teeth Cleaning at South Boston Dental Associates —    (Patient since 2015)

Like most people, I get my teeth cleaned twice a year. Like most people, I am not excited when the date comes. It helps that I know that I get the best care in the cleaning of my teeth. The cleaning itself is exquisite and thorough. My teeth end up white and cleaned of any tarter. Then, my gums are checked, and each tooth examined. I leave knowing that my teeth, gums, and entire mouth are in the best of shape and health. This makes it all well worth the effort. They consistently do an excellent job.


StarStarStarStarStar Friendly and Knowledgeable Staff  —    (Patient since 2006)

Gentle cleaning on the gums and teeth while still feeling squeaky clean teeth.

My teeth could not be in better hands :) Every time I am there, they are always looking for ways for me to improve my oral hygiene, and lets just say it has been so many years since I last had a cavity, I don't even remember when. My teeth were in horrible shape when i first went there, and now they are in great shape! What more can I say!

This was an emergency treatment and an appointment was set up for the same day I called. Doctor Barber and his assistant worked through their lunch hour to take care of my dental problem, and made me so comfortable I was actually laughing despite the pain. My treatment options were clearly explained by Dr. Barber, and I left a happy pain-free client. I would recommend SBDA without hesitation. Ellen Berkland

StarStarStarStarStar I love going to the dentist! —    (Patient since 2015)

Growing up I always had lots of cavities and frequently had to go to dental appointments, often for painful procedures. Now that I have a dentist who cares about me and my oral health I don't have any cavities for the first time in years! All because my dentists here helped me to do things better and were always willing to help and talk to me.

Visit was good but I was disappointed that no dentist was working (I understand the dentist gave birth earlier than expected) but I would have appreciated a phone call telling me that I can still have my cleaning and X-rays but that I would need to come back on another date for the dentist to see me and check my X-rays. I was unhappy to have to schedule a second appointment. I would have preferred to reschedule. Because now I am unable to see the dentist for another two months and I will have moved out of southie by then. I thought it was unprofessional that I was not notified prior to my appointment.

I truly appreciate a dental practice that cares as much about my teeth as I do. The hygienist takes time to meticulously clean my teeth, provide guidelines for care and answer any questions. I have questioned the dentist about certain procedures and based on his answers, I trust that he only recommends services when they are truly necessary. For no reason, I get anxious going to the dentist so I appreciate that office staff is efficient and the wait is never long. Once I am in the chair, the treatment I receives puts me instantly at ease.

If you are looking for professional high quality dentistry than this is it! I was 20 when I went to a different dentist that told me I needed dentures. I am so glad I went for a second opinion, because I am now 51 and still have all my teeth. Don't get me wrong they were very bad, but South Boston Dental Associates were able to bring my teeth back from the brink. I just have to say thank you to Dr. Barber and the whole team there. I mentioned the team because it is not just the doctors. The whole support staff is great, from the receptionist to my dental hygienist Peg, all have a high standard of quality and professionalism. They are nice people as well :) Which is just as important! Thank you guys!

StarStarNo StarNo StarNo Star Need to improve timeliness —    (Patient since 2014)

I was very disappointed in how late I was taken for my appointment. I make every effort to get to my appointments a few minutes early, and I was taken over 20 minutes after my scheduled appointment time, which meant I was away from my own staff and clients for more time than I should have been during the work day. This is not the first time the timeliness has been lacking, and it does make me consider other options in the area, or in my own town. The treatment received is very good, but what I remember most about that appointment, and others, is how I am never seen on time.

Have been a patient for 35 years and would not even dream of going anywhere else! I have recommended this practice to many friends and they are always pleased with the results. Visiting the dentist is not easy. ( I swear my normally low blood pressure goes up 20 points when I cross the threshold) However, I am always treated in a reassuring manner I love my dental hygienist, Ann LeBlanc, who catches everything. My husband and daughter are also long time patients and pleased with the care they receive.

Everyone is always pleasant and Dr. Phillip Barber is more critical of dental work than any other dentist I have had. He is a perfectionist, which shows when people tell me how great my teeth look. His bondings have outlasted crowns and veneers, and look great!

I found the care I received at SBDA 20 be excellent.


StarStarStarStarStar Quality service —    (Patient since 2013)

I am very pleased with the quality of the service at SBDA. I had insurance questions that were addressed in detail, even with follow up suggestions made. The dental hygienist was very thorough, gentle and got an extra x-ray (no charge) and got both the dentist and periodontist's opinion when she noticed something questionable. I find Dr. Barber exceptionally detailed and careful with his work. I am very happy that I made a switch to Dr. Barber. While the dental costs are not inexpensive, I feel you often get what you pay for with good dentistry.

I would give these people 10 stars if I could. They are beyond excellent. I have been going here for decades and travel the extra way because they are that good. Dentists, support staff, specialists, hygienists -- they are all wonderful, knowledgeable, caring people.

By far the best place I have the pleasure of entrusting my dental care to. During my recent visit, I have had extra staining between my teeth despite brushing & flossing 3 times daily. If it weren't for my hygienist alerting me of Crest Pro Healths' containing a stain causing agent, the problem would have worsened over time damaging my teeth. Thankfully, she was able to safely eliminate the staining resulting in a brighter smile and perfect check-up. Staff is friendly, courteous and always willing to go the extra mile for their patients. Happy smiles all around 😄

The dental team makes me feel very welcome... However the front seat is a bit off putting. Possibly smiling more and offering that they will notify the team of patient being present would ease the anxiety and wait... My neighbor refers to the front desk people as " grouches" and has left the practice based on that!

I'm annoyed that the oral surgeon is only available on Wednesday's till 3:00pm. Leaving work early and charging a $175 consultation fee is unacceptable. I'm going to seek out someone else for my oral surgery. My only issue for your dental practice is the "contracting" for oral surgery and orthodontics. I had bad experiences with both. (Dr. Beuchel left the office with my daughter's teeth a mess). I would rather be referred to a specialist and go to their office.

It seemed like the new ortho people really didn't know what they were doing. I waited almost 30 minutes for my appt, waited while 2 assistants finished up the previous case (I believe) then given my invisilines, some of them, was told the doc would be in to see me, she told me to take all of them (not just the 10 the assistant gave me). The pictures needed to be taken, 1 person started then a 2nd finished the pictures, then I was just left, he walked into the other side with a patient in it. I didn't get a follow up appointment, nor a have a nice day. The whole appt. took an hour. A bit disappointing.

Though my primary residence is now in Chicago I continue to travel back to Boston for my dental needs; that is level of trust I have in Dr. Luccio and his team. Simply put, SBDA is an exceptional practice.

I may have acted a bit disappointed, but she was great. She pointed out several things that were occurring and why. We needed to make a follow-up appointment with the dentist. When we went to the desk we found out he was in the office and he came right in to check out my problem. Didn't have to wait days (or weeks) for him to see me! I've been going to SBDA for over a decade. Have never had a bad experience.

StarNo StarNo StarNo StarNo Star My visit to South Boston Dental was not at all pleasant —    (Patient since 2014)

My visit to South Boston Dental was not at all pleasant. First, I received a phone call telling me that my normal appointment, which was in one week, had to be cancelled. I had to reschedule at the last minute and come in the next day, since the orthodontist is only there one day. When I arrived, I checked in, sat down, and started the timer on my phone. 35 minutes later, I was finally called. 5 minutes after that my appointment was over and I was in my car. Did the orthodontist (or anyone) look in my mouth? No. Do he say anything more than "how's it going?" Nope. I waited 35 minutes to receive 2 Invisalign aligners. Why couldn't I have just have picked up my aligners from the front desk as soon as I arrived? Yes, I know, it was a busy day because of the change in schedule. But this situation repeats EVERY time I visit. I have never waited for less than 20 minutes, and I've even waited for 50 minutes! Not to mention the constant rescheduling and harassing calls!

This was my second visit at this office and I have actually enjoyed both times (I generally don't mind the dentist anyway though). They did an excellent job cleaning my teeth and giving me helpful info to reduce my sensitivity from gum recession. The hygienist gave me excellent info about my own and my toddler son's dental care. When my son saw her, it was just to take a look to make sure all was progressing as it should. They make a point of not scaring little ones and treating them with the same respect as adults, which I appreciate in a BIG way! I would definitely recommend this office to anyone, big or small:)

I would recommend South Boston Dental to anyone. Dr. Barber is a perfectionist, and you want someone who is as meticulous as he is when you have dental work. His staff follows suit. They are all extremely knowledgable and have improved my dental health exponentially. I have gone to Dr. Rider as well who is equally as outstanding as Dr. Barber. The adminstrative staff is outstanding as well. My husband and I joke that they could run a small country. They are extremely organized, they understand all insurance policies, and they do all the work for you. If you want productivity to increase at your work place, steal this staff!

My schedule and the dr. schedule rarely match and I can't be made to feel guilty for it. I need to attend to things on my schedule - it pays the bills - and some wiggle room on your end would be greatly appreciated.

Everyone in the office is friendly, helpful and efficient. I appreciate the appointment reminders and being notified of open appointments. All the work I have had done at SBDA has been satisfactory, and I've always been accommodated for any emergencies. My hygienist is very thorough, but also gentle.

Hi Kate, Sorry that you experienced a bad wait time. We do understand that your time is just as important as ours and we will work on that. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving.

StarStarStarStarStar 3.. —    (Patient since 1999)

My left front cap needs to be replaced because there is a large gap between the cap and the implant next to it. The work was done there. Why should I have to pay if something was incorrectly sized? I made everyone that saw me aware of this gap over the past few years and that I had to continuously floss that area. Not to mention I complained about those teeth hurting. A root canal and an implant, so how could they hurt? No one immediately said, maybe we should fix this gap. So why do I now have to pay $1550 to fix it? Also the girls on the desk strong arm you to put the cash up front. I have been using your services longer than they have been alive. Thank God Ellie is a reasonable person. I think I may be looking for a second opinion.

I'm completely terrified of any dental surgery, so I've been putting my wisdom teeth off for literally a decade. Although I'm not healed yet, and I had a weird reaction to the IV, all I heard around me were calm, soothing voices. Dr. Lincoln is so kind, and I have just loved every dental hygienist I've ever had at South Boston Dental. The reception/administrative team is also wonderful--answering all of my insurance/money questions. Long story short--you guys are the best!

For many years I avoided going to the dentist. When my sister finally talked me into going I was afraid, of course. From the moment I walked into the office I felt very comfotable. Everyone took their time with me knowing how scared I was. Of course I needed dental work. Dr Barber made me feel very secure. He explained everything he was going to do. The dental hygenests right from the get go were also very comforting and personable. The office staff I feel I have known for years. I live 25 miles from this dentist but would not think about going anywhere else, even closer to home.

3 Things! 1)I was called to say my appt. needed to be changed to 20 minutes later...when I arrived, I waited another 20 minutes to be seen. I had a demanding work schedule that day...and I was late for a very important meeting. Not happy! 2) The week before...I was called,late in the afternoon, to move my appt. up because of a cancellation on your end, however, the next morning I knew a meeting we had scheduled was going to run longer than expected so I called to cancel. I was billed $55.00 as a no-show. I've been coming to this office for over 20 years, I do not have a history of being a "no-show"...when I called Ellie to question it, I was faced with a nasty attitude and a few condisending remarks. 3) I was there for a cleaning, no one was available for my check-up. When I tried to make an appt. with Dr. Barbar, I was told "Nothing is available"...really! The office is obviously over-booking, creating a chaotic atmosphere.

I've been a patient for over 20 years - even after moving to the suburbs 11 years ago! That speaks volumes for the care that I've received over the years from Dr. Barber and the entire staff at South Boston Dental. They are one of the few doctor's offices that is run so efficiently. There is almost NEVER a wait time; their entire staff is time-cognizant, so I know I can rely on getting out for my next appointment/meeting. They provide courtesy calls to ensure that your appointment still works with your schedule and are happy to reschedule for you. They handle all the insurance paperwork, so all I have to do is show up for my appts!

The office seems to run without a hitch keeping me abreast of my appointments and taking care of my insurance claims. And of course the dental work, cleanings through braces has been exceptional. Parking is pretty easy too.

I felt the hygienist was very thorough and explained things clearly. The dentist took time to examine my mouth carefully and explain his recommendations. The reception area people are polite and helpful. All in all a good experience.

StarStarStarStarStar I came to SBD in rather poor shape —    (Patient since 2010)

I came to SBD in rather poor shape. Had multiple cavities and much work (root canal, crowns) that needed to be be done. I was not too happy when I started. But Dr. Barber took one thing at a time, explaining exactly what I needed to have done. Also explained the health benefits from all the work and that it would be well worth the effort. I cannot tell you how happy I am that about a year and a half later - all my work was done and now I just go in for the cleanings and checkups! I feel good about the investment in my teeth and gums for the long hall.

Also, they ensure I understand the insurance and payment options before they begin work.

I have been a patient for many many years and have never had a bad experience. Dr. Barber has done a beautiful job on my many crowns. People are always shocked when they find out I have crowns on my front teeth. I've always had Anne as my hygienst, and of course I may be a bit partial since she is my sister, but I truly believe she is one of the best. As for the front desk, they always welcome me with a smile and a chat, especially Mary Kay.
