Dr. Alter and the rest of the team at CMB are fantastic. I neglected my teeth by not going to the dentist for several years. Dr. Alter didn’t make me feel ashamed for the cavities that he found and instead, assured me with a plan to address the issues and get me back to where I should be, so that I can have sustained good dental health. I havne’t had to wait in my first 3 appointments. I’m seen on time, and they don’t mess around. I’ve had very little pain following 2 visits with cavities being removed and filled, during the procedure and after. I’ve had awful previous experiences with other dentists and numbing not working, so this has been a huge relief. I’ve been seen by 3 different Hygienists, all of which have been awesome. Easy to talk to (when you can actually talk), comforting when needed, helpful in terms of knowing what’s going on, and overall just super skilled, friendly and knowledgeable. The front desk staff are equally as helpful and enjoyable to talk to. They get you in and out and with whatever you need. Text and email reminders are definitely helpful as well. So yea - if you’re not sold by now, I’m not sure what else to tell you other than I highly recommend Dr Alter and the team at CMB! -Mike S.

Had a tooth ache called for an appointment and they got me in within 24 hours. The staff is always pleasant and welcoming. Dr, Alter is A number 1 ; he takes the time to explain everything in detail and does an excellent and professional job. Would absolutely recommend this office to anyone needing dental work. - Larry Y.

We really appreciated the time Dr. Alter took to work with John on a tricky procedure. It helped that he clearly explained what he was going to do, the effect it would have and what to look out for in recovery. The dental assistant, I believe it was Lori, was so helpful and caring -- she was a very efficient and professional help to the Doctor, and friendly and warm to us. This could have been a very traumatic experience, but we got through it just fine because of the quality of the people and the services. - John and Marcia H.
