My visit to Element Dental was fantastic! Will definitely be coming back for all dental work. I had a cleaning with the hygienist Jennifer and it was amazing. She was gentle and made sure I was comfortable every step of the way! Dr. Bains was great as well. Everyone worked well as a team and made my experience delightful, I got a great cleaning and the information I needed for future work. My teeth feel great!

As new patients at Element Dental my husband and I are so very pleased ! The staff and Dr. Bains are so kind and thorough . My husband is physically challenged and they are so accommodating ! Welcome to the neighborhood !

Morgan L. from Cambridge, MA (Source: Yelp)


Could not recommend more highly! Everyone is very friendly and professional, I felt much more comfortable than I usually do at the dentist. My favorite part of the experience was the high-quality Bose sunglasses with built-in speakers. These were great for watching TV, they had access to Netflix, Hulu, etc. They gave me a little hot stone massage at the end of the appointment, which was so nice. And then at check-out you spin the Gift Card Wheel! (They had Amazon, Subway, and a few other options). Very fun–will be back!

I’ve never enjoyed going to the dentist, but this truly was the best dental experience start to finish. The staff was super friendly and personable, ensuring that I was comfortable throughout the appointment, and everything throughout the appointment was explained to me in detail. I’ve always had sensitive gums, and have found discomfort during cleanings with dentists in the past, but Dr. Bains was very gentle.

Lisa A. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I never thought I would actually type these words: I had so much fun at the dentist. Dr. Bains, Chedeline and Karima made the experience amazing from the minute I drove into the parking lot. All of Covid precautions were used but it’s truly the team and Dr. Bains herself who make all the difference. Yes, there’s so many great perks like drinks when you first walk in, Netflix with special speaker glasses and some surprises I’ll let you see for yourself, but truly knowing you’re in an office with brand new, top-of-the-line equipment and such a caring team is what made the difference. I bet these girls are a blast to hang out with after work too. Really top notch place.

Krishnaa G. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t rave enough about Element Dental!  The professionalism, friendly staff and environment make this an outstanding place of service.  The newly designed ambiance is pleasant and inviting- there are even smart TVs so you can enjoy some of your favorite music or Netflix while getting your dental work done!  Dr. Bains is wonderful!  She took her time to explain everything to me with patience.  I felt like she had my best interest at heart with her recommendations.  Karima (front desk) and Chedeline (assistant) are extremely friendly and made me feel so welcome. The central location with parking also makes this an ideal location for many.  This place is definitely the new hot dental spot in town.  I had one of the best experiences here as a first-time client; You won’t regret a visit!

I have not been to many different dentist’s office but this was by far my best experience ever. Everyone there was super nice and professional. Before just jumping into treatment, they made sure I felt like I truly understood what was going on with teeth and what they were going to do and why. And for once, I didn’t feel shame for going to the dentist. Their facilities were clean and had some wonderful amenities that I didn’t expect for most dentists office’s to have

Brigitte A. (Source: Google)


This office was phenomenal! The most friendly and relaxing dentist appointment I’ve ever had. Everyone on the staff was extremely warm and inviting from my first phone call to set up the appointment to when I left after my cleaning. I only left 3 hours ago and have already told several of my co-workers how amazing it was…and you never hear that about dentists! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!

Jennifer Zuluaga (Source: Google)


10/10 recommend! Amazing new patient experience! Dr. Bains is one of the most professional and welcoming dentists around. As a new patient, she made sure to listen to all of my concerns and offer different solutions to achieving an end result that I was satisfied with. She discussed each x-ray that was taken, explaining what each picture showed which I had never had a dentist do prior to my visit at Element Dental. Her knowledge, passion for dentistry and friendliness were apparent. The staff is also amazing! Everyone treats you like family – literally as if they had known you for years. As an outgoing person myself, I was thrilled to be treated that way. From the glasses with built-in speakers to the spa-like environment, I am confident that Element Dental suits anyones needs. Bonus points for the hot stone massage at the end of the visit and the free gift card I won! I was just seen last week and have already recommended this place to 3 of my family members. Keep it up Element Dental, I will sure be back (and so will my family members)!

Wow. My visit to Element was a pure delight. Even before arriving I felt that they were the type to go above and beyond. The office was able to work with me and my insurance and was incredibly transparent about the cost I’d be paying before I even arrived- no surprises! Once I arrived, everybody was so friendly. From the front desk to the hygienist to the dentist, they did everything in their power to make me feel comfortable. Loved the special TV glasses that allow you to hear the TV through them! They had state of the art everything and I even won a $10 amazon gift card at the end of my visit. I honestly have never enjoyed a dental visit more!

Elemental Dental is exceptional in its patient centered treatment. Dr. Bains and her team made “going to the dentist” an enjoyable experience. The facility has all the modern equipments, the staff are cordial, polite and friendly. Dr. Bains explained each of the procedures and made you feel comfortable, well informed and happy. One of the best dental experiences I had here and will heartily recommend this place to everyone!

Brooke Lawler (Source: Google)


I would give my experience at Element Dental 5+ stars. All of the staff are so kind and caring. They took care of my needs and more from the moment I entered the door until I left. I agree with a previous review that I have never experienced service at another doctor or dentists like the service I received at Element Dental. I will be recommending Element Dental to friends and family.

Getting dental work has never been a great experience— until now! The doctor and staff are the nicest people. The doc does an amazing job, they are very clear on billing up front, and the hot stone massage is def a plus. Truly the nicest group of ladies. I’m actually writing this review after seeing them twice. They were so great the first time, I had to see if they were equally consistently amazing the second time around. And no surprise— they were.

I was referred to this place by my orthodontist and they had said you wont get disappointed, which was true. The office itself is clean, bright and inviting and the staff is super Friendly and attentive. Dr.Bains was very nice, friendly, and caring and answered all my questions. I had very pleasant experience here and already made my next appointment for my routine check up! They also have free parking space and are open till evening on some days which was very convenient for me.

I am beyond impressed with my experience at Element Dental today! Each staff member I encountered was exceptionally friendly and provided excellent service. Chedeline was the lovely dental assistant who helped me – she was great and made me very comfortable while prepping for the doctor. She even offered the option to cue up a Netflix show for me while she was taking my x-rays. Karima was on top of my insurance benefits, and kindly went over each procedure with me beforehand to ensure no surprise charges at the end of the visit. Dr. Bains was fantastic – she is knowledgeable and thorough, and it is evident she cares about creating a welcoming and appealing environment for her patients. She does not try to upsell you, and communicates her findings to you clearly and in an open and honest manner. Anna was very welcoming at the front desk and was efficient in checking me out and scheduling my next visit. I did not feel rushed at any point during the visit, and left feeling pleasantly surprised at my experience there. Again, just extremely impressed with this office, its staff, and Dr. Bains. I will definitely be returning, and I will be recommending Element Dental to all my friends! If you’re looking for a new dentist, this is your place.

Overall, an amazing experience. All of the staff are welcoming and knowledgeable. Dr. Bains takes the time to thoroughly explain everything and the team genuinely cares about the state of your teeth. The team is always making sure you know what’s going on and answers all of your questions at all stages of the appointment. Also at the end, there is a relaxing hot stone massage. Looking forward to coming back! Not something you can say to a lot of other dentist.

I informed them that I am deaf before entering the dentist. I was so nervous and not sure if they can communicate with me. When I entered, they were all ready and had iPad to communicate with me. I was very impressed and being comfortable with them! Everyone is awesome! I would love to go every 6 months! I recommend to anyone who is deaf. They will be happy to help you out!

Jenny Vojtech (Source: Google)


I was nervous to go since I hadn’t been to the dentist in many years and I was afraid I was going to be berated for poor dental hygiene… but my experience was the COMPLETE opposite. Dr. Bains and her staff were absolutely wonderful, warm, and welcoming. Dr. Bains took so much care in explaining what was going on to make sure I understood the state of my teeth and how I could alter my dental hygiene. The doctor and staff all took the time to explain my results, answer my questions, and ensure I felt safe and comfortable during my x-rays and cleaning (i.e., due to Covid-19). I cannot recommend this practice highly enough!

The BEST dental experience I have ever had! All the staff are so friendly, welcoming, and patient – I had to reschedule my appointment the day of and they were extremely accommodating. As soon as you walk in, you are greeted with water, hand sanitizer, and a calm atmosphere. Everyone is truly so professional – Dr. Bains is a fantastic dentist and did such an amazing job, my teeth have never looked or felt better! THANK YOU to everyone at Element Dental, I can’t wait to come back again in 6 months!

Michael C. from Somerville, MA (Source: Yelp)


Like other reviewers have said, this place is definitely one of the best dental experiences you’ll have. I had a pretty great Dentist back when I was in NY but even his office can’t match up with the enthusiasm and friendliness I’ve experienced here at Element. Being that they just opened an year ago they’re really quite nice on the amenities compared to your run of the mill dental offices. I was pretty surprised by the drink fridge in the waiting room but was more pleasantly surprised on how friendly Karima the front staff was when I first arrived! I had registered online beforehand and filled out the patient information online so the wait and paperwork was very minimal when I arrived. I probably only waited about 10 minutes before Dr. Bains and her assistant saw me. The equipment they have are pretty much in new condition and like others have mentioned the speaker glasses that they let you wear is pretty cool gadget, definitely helps take the mind off when they’re working on your teeth. Echoing another reviewer’s comment I very appreciate their upfrontness regarding prices and their recommended treatment plans. They would show me a break down of each of the out of pocket expenses and didn’t really push me if I feel uncomfortable. That’s something very different compare to some of the older traditional dentist office I’ve been to in my previous visits. It’s unfortunate that COVID hit soon after they opened their clinic but I wish them good luck and all the best as I definitely will be coming back here as a regular patient.

This was hands down the best dental experience I’ve ever had. The waiting room felt like a spa (though I was not waiting long at all). The staff were all incredibly friendly both over phone before coming in and throughout the entire appointment. All of the equipment is state of the art and brand new and Dr. Bains was incredibly kind, patient, and caring. She spent a ton of time with me walking me through my X Rays, explaining each step of what she was doing and why, and I felt like she really cared about my health and overall experience. Perhaps the best part of Element Dental is its commitment to transparency. Someone came in after my cleaning and before anything further to walk me through exactly what was and was not covered by my insurance and what was recommended vs strongly encouraged that wasn’t covered. I’ve never had a dentist or any doctor for that matter handle pricing with such transparency and thoughtfulness for the patient. Finally, the complimentary drinks, free mugs, and gift cards were really nice perks to make me feel special at my first visit. Thank you Element Dental!

For the first time I felt as though I was understood. From the time I walked in I was treated with nothing but respect. leaving I felt as though I wanted to cry not because of pain, but because Dr. Bains and her staff care. I know I am in GREAT HANDS, and can’t wait for the end results.

What a great dental experience! Going to the dentist makes me incredibly anxious but I knew as soon as I walked through the front door I could see that Element Dental was different. There was curbside check in and I was greeted by name by the most friendly and helpful office assistant (thank you for such a welcoming experience). The office itself is spotless. Literally the most clean medical office I’ve ever been in. It’s clear that Element Dental takes the work they do very seriously and professionally. ALL of the staff that assisted during my appointment were so kind and fantastic. Every part of my routine cleaning and treatment plan was explained to me in advance and I was provided with several care options. I really appreciated this part of the experience the most, because often times in medical environments the patient has no clue what’s going on. Aside from an outstanding and caring staff, I was able to use ZocDoc for appointments, there were iPads for paperless transactions, and there were even Bose frames to listen to music! Thank you for making my visit such a wonderful experience! I actually can’t wait to go back to the dentist 🙂

Sasha N. from Stanford, CA (Source: Yelp)


I think this is a new practice and they have really made an effort to make going to the dentist a pleasant and even fun experience! You can listen to music or even watch Netflix while getting your teeth attended to and Dr Bains is very comprehensive and will explain everything she does and why. The other staff are all very bright and friendly and there’s even a prize wheel you can spin if you’re a new patient to win a gift card! Highly recommended

Joey D (Source: Google)


I’ve never had a better experience at the dentist. Dr. Bains was very nice and made me feel comfortable with the whole experience. The assistant was very nice and answered any questions I had, she even gave me a warm stone massage after my cleaning. I left feeling very satisfied, and even with a gift card. Great experience, I would highly recommend them, and I will definitely be coming back in the future.

Jacquelyn Graham (Source: Google)


This was one of the best dental experiences of my life! From the moment you walk in the door you are warmly greeted. The technology at this office is top notch! I was most impressed with Dr. Bains knowledge of dentistry. She completed a full examination of my mouth and her clinical expertise is outstanding. At the end of the procedure the hot stone massage is the best! Helps with muscle fatigue after a procedure. I will recommend element dental to all my friends and family!!

First time I’ve ever looked forward to going to the dentist. Everyone is so kind and welcoming, and makes you feel extremely comfortable. They have screens for you to listen to music or watch Netflix during your appointment , and even give you a face massage at the end! Very pleasant experience and looking forward to my next visit!

I never knew having such a pleasant dentist visit was possible. Not only did I leave with my teeth shining but also with an infusion of positivity. I’ve been putting off my dentist visit for far too long and now I cannot wait for my next one. Every member of the staff is careful, attentive, and comforting. On top of that they are extremely knowledgeable and genuine people. My X-rays and treatment options were gone over in detail and explained to my understanding. They go out of their way to make the experience not feel like a chore. They provided music and entertainment to distract from the unpleasant portions of dentists visit and leave you with a relaxing hot stone massage and a gift card !! Thank you to everyone at Element Dental. I honestly can’t wait for my 6month appointment.

I had a truly exceptional dental experience with Dr. Bains. This is THE practice to go to if you have any worries, fears, or anxiety about dental cleaning or work – or, if you just want a calming and thorough experience. As the other reviews suggest, everyone in the office is gentle, warm, and welcoming. Dr. Bains takes the time to explain everything she sees and does during the visit. Dr. Bains is sensitive to experiences that might be less comfortable for a patient, and therefore she offers many accommodations to calm nerves and make all procedures as relaxing as possible. I also loved that there was so much transparency and patience in regards to explaining billing and various treatment options. I never imagined I could have such a calming and thoughtful dental visit. I’ve already recommended this practice to everyone I know!

Overall great experience and exceptional client service! Element Dental is a top tier dental office. From booking an appointment to check-in, to treatment consultation and pricing to treatment completion and check-out, Element Dental takes great care of their clients. Dr. Bains and assistants are warm, kind, and good-humored. Appointments are easily made, confirmed, and timely reminders are sent. Check-in wait times are brief and pre-treatment explanations are detailed and thorough. Treatment recommendations and treatment pricing is upfront, transparent, and agreeable. I could not be happier with my client experience or my dental treatment. I now only trust Element Dental with my smile. THANK YOU Dr. Bains and everyone at Element Dental! Keep up the great work!!!

This was the BEST dentist I’ve ever been to. Every single staff member was so sweet, and cared enough to genuinely want to get to know me as a person. Their service was above and beyond- refreshments in the waiting room, headphones for listening to music/watching TV while getting teeth cleaned, etc etc. I can’t wait to be back for my next appointment!

Needed a new dentist and saw the high reviews here, had a similarly great experience as everyone else. The office is brand new, easy to get to off the parkway, and has easy parking. The check-in process is done beforehand through an online portal and you text from the parking lot to let them know you have arrived. After getting a temperature check, was seen immediately. Each part of the visit was explained thoroughly and transparently, from billing to treatment. Dr. Bains and her staff took the time to explain each step, from x-rays to the exam and cleaning. The whole staff is very personable and professional, would highly recommend Dr. Bains and her staff.

I was recommended this clinic by my husband as he thoroughly enjoyed his treatment earlier this year. So I made an appointment for checkup and cleaning. The first thing that impressed me was the excellent communication to make the visit a smooth experience for the customer. I noticed many extra measures Were taken ensuring patient’s and staff safety during the pandemic and this made me comfortable. Now talking about the people, the whole staff and the dentist were super friendly and funny. We had so many fun conversations during my visit. The team is very professional and maintained transparency with the cost and service provided. Dr. Bains was Very welcoming and answered all the naive questions I had. The space was very clean and had a very good and positive energy to it I must admit! The $10 dunkin donut gift card that I won was an added bonus! Overall, I loved the experience and am already looking forward to my next visit. I had never imagined that visit to Dental clinic could be so much fun! Highly recommend this clinic for amazing services while having great time!
