Snelling Avenue is excellent!  They are friendly, helpful, and always listen to any issues or things I want to convey.  They aren’t “pushy” about procedures and are honest about what they think.  I’ve had some bonding work as well as repaired a chipped tooth with them…and they are never “guilt-ridden” about what you have to do better…i.e. floss more.  This dental practice is as good as it gets!

Originally I have been with Dr.Bomberg for over 20 years. He Started in Midway and then moved to Snelling Ave. Shortly after he was there ,Dr.Pham merged with Dr. Bomberg and then moved to Hamline Family Dental.. Both Dr. Pham and Dr.Bomberg are rock stars! For me to be with them for all there years should indicate how amazing they are! The people there are wonderful-including Charlene the business manager. She is a lot fun and very nice! Everybody there is great! I have lots of dentist in my area I could go to, yet I choose to go out of my way for my care.

After I moved from St Paul to Richfield, I thought I should really find a dentist closer to me than Snelling in Highland area. Then they moved to Falcon Heights and I began searching in earnest, plus was now on Medicare. Then COVID 19 hit! Forget about convenience! I decided to stick with tried and true. And am not disappointed. Dr Bomberg and Al, my hygienist, are so helpful, knowledgeable and honest about my best interest and health. Confidence is so important at this time to me. Thank you to you and the front line warriors- most susceptible to the virus- for your courage, service, and help to your patients. ~ Robbyn

I’ve relied on Snelling Avenue Dental for years. Although I usually see Bernie Bomberg, I’ve been treated by two other dentists there, as well; and although Julie is my usual Dental Hygienist, I’ve been treated by others on occasion.  Everyone there is friendly, competent, and confidence-inspiring.  I’ve been known to delay treatment when I haven’t been in the vicinity, because I wouldn’t go anywhere else unless necessary.

Receptionist Charlene welcomed me and I had no wait before Al came to bring me back to the chair. Al’s cleaning and X-ray procedure was gentle and thorough. I also was seen by Dr. Bomberg who is the best dentist ever. My experiences at this dental clinic have always been positive, thorough and timely. Good service from a team who obviously love their work.

Sherrie B. from Saint Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


Super friendly and welcoming from the moment I walked in the door. The entire staff genuinely seemed happy to be there, which is always a good sign. I went in for a cleaning and possible cavity. I’m sometimes reluctant to tell a dentist what issues I think I might have because I always feel like I’m at a car mechanic and they are going to make up issues to boost the bill. Not here…..they informed me I had no cavities, no issues, and even filed down a chipped tooth for free. I will definitely be returning here for my future dental needs!

P H. from Saint Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


I became a patient here about 20 years ago. I had no insurance and was struggling financially. Dr. B was willing to work with me and made it possible for me get the dental care I needed. I also didn’t have many positive experiences at previous dental offices, so I also had fear and anxiety. The entire staff was very patient and kind. They did everything they could to make me feel at ease. I have been a patient here ever since then. I am very happy with the care I receive. I am not afraid of the dentist any longer. In fact I actually look forward to my appointments now! My husband is also a satisfied patient. The entire staff is great! I would never go anywhere else.

I had been looking for a new dentist and had tried another dentist office and had a bad experience. Then I purchased a groupon for Hamlin Dental, was a little nervous, but needed to see a dentist. My experience at Hamlin Dental was awesome. Everyone was friendly and concerned about the issues I had with my teeth. They took extra measures to make sure everything was COVID safe. I am excited for my next appointment.

I am in my late 50’s and have NEVER felt more comfortable in a dentist office than I did today at Snelling Ave. Dental!! From my walking in the door greeted with a smile, having an awesome, yes awesome teeth cleaning and an extremely informative conversation with the dentist! She was so calm and soothing and gave it to me straight!! Never has a dentist talked to me and taught me about my teeth before!! I would recommend this dental office to EVERYONE!!!

Dian P. from Saint Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I have been customers at the Snelling Avenue Dental for years.  The dentists are very personable individuals.  The staff is the best bunch of people you could meet.  We always enjoy going there.  We have sent friends and family members to see the whole group at Snelling Avenue Dental.  I would not advise anyone to go to a business unless I truly believed they would be treated as a valued customer.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Bomberg for about 27 years, going way back to his location at the Griggs-Midway Building. His office was right around the corner from where I worked in the same building. Since the early 90’s I’ve moved to a different job and home, but I will never change my Dental office! Dr. Bomberg and Dr. Pham are the best!

Sonja Harlane (Source: Google)


Started coming to Snelling Ave. Dental several years ago when my husband and I realized we were St. Paulite’s and going back to our hometown twice a year for the dentist seemed silly. We’ve had nothing but excellent experiences here. The staff is wonderful and thorough, remember details of things we previous talked about. They are great at getting you in and out quickly. We haven’t taken our kid there yet but won’t hesitate to once he’s old enough. This is an excellent choice for your dental care!

Bridget E. from Saint Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


I love this place. I came here because another dentist told me I had a cavity (I was dubious). It’s been 5 years and no cavity there- just staining! The cavity I did have filled here was very clear existed. I trust them entirely. I also love the feel of the place and staff- very kind, welcoming people.

Jennifer C. from Roseville, MN (Source: Yelp)


I’ve gone to this dentist for my routine checkups 3 time since moving back to Minnesota. I was referred by my boyfriend who raved about his long-time dentist, Dr. Bomberg. I’ve been going to Dr. Tami Pham who has been also great although you really only spend the last 2-minutes with the Dentist. My Hygienist, Sara, was a pleasure to talk to and put me at ease. She did an awesome job cleaning my teeth getting off a few stubborn stains that I thought were permanent! I have never felt sales pressured either, which I’d been accustomed to at my prior Dentist’s office. This is a place I trust that if they say I need some extra work that it’ll be necessary. Although I’m sure if you are looking specifically for extras they will gladly accommodate.

Georgia O. from Saint Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr. Bomberg for many years. Now I have been seeing Dr. Pham too. Al is the hygienist that I usually see. All of them are very professional and caring. I recommended them to my daughter, grandson and sister and they have also been impressed by their practice.  They are the best!

Carol Ellingsberg (Source: Facebook)


Been seeing Dr Bomberg and staff (and now Dr Pham) since the earth was cooling. Quality service, professionalism and friendliness has kept me coming back. I never felt like just a number. COVID has added another dimension but Hamline Family Dental made me feel very secure, they met or exceeded all standards of care/ COVID precautions.

Rachelle Lozano (Source: Facebook)


the staff, hygienists and doctors are so amazingly talented, helpful, warm and welcoming! I’ve been coming here for almost 20 years! highly recommend Snelling Avenue Dental! I also, brought my 3 year old for her first dental visit and the hygienist and doctor were so good with her, she did great!

I have been going to Snelling Avenue Dental for over 10 years. Dr. Bomberg is the only dentist who has made me enjoy going to the dentist. He is professional, funny, understanding and is in tune with each and every one of his patients. Even though he has sold the practice nothing has changed. In fact it has only gotten better. The entire staff is amazing. I would highly recommend Snelling Avenue Dental.

My dentist retired, I had to find a different dentist. I felt lucky that I didn’t have to go during the past year due to Covid (my excuse). I finally made an appointment with Hamline Family Dental, so glad I did. The staff is very professional and helpful. Thank you for making me feel at ease and comfortable. See you in six months

Helen T K. from Saint Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


For something that is not my desireable (although necessary) experience I receive the best treatment and everything is done to make it as easy as possible,  These are professionals in the fullest sense of the term.  I am grateful to turn to Snelling Dental for the best care and interest in me.

Terri T. from St Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient at Snelling Ave Dental for 5 years. The office staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable. The staff are like family to each other, which makes for a welcoming environment and excellent patient care. They are honest with you about what upcoming work you will need, but don’t push you to do it until it’s absolutely necessary. I recommend Snelling Ave Dental to everyone I know.

Edie Naiman (Source: Facebook)


My dentist retired so I needed a new dentist. A friend knew Dr. Bomberg and I decided I would try his practice. Dr. Pham became my dentist as Dr. Bomberg was retiring. I have not been disappointed with anything at this dental clinic. I never liked going to the dentist – Here I am always welcomed and treated well. Best all around staff and I believe fair prices. They can help set up payment plans when major work needs to be done. I trust Dr. Pham and Leonard and feel I am getting the dental work I need done with exceptional care and understanding of my needs. I wish them continued success in their lovely new office on Larpenteur Avenue.

This was by far the greatest experience I’ve had at any doctor And as a veteran I’ve been too many, 2 appointments, 1st appointment for a X-ray I was in-and-out in about 15 minutes, 2nd appointment for a extraction, from my appointment time I was out of there in 35 minutes with a very pleasant experience although I couldn’t talk to well, lol, Highly recommend. I also was referred.

David Epstein (Source: Google)


They got me in immediately for an urgent nasty toothache today and took care of it on the spot. I’ve been going there for decades and Dr Pham, who took over from Dr Bomberg a few years ago, has a really gentle touch. That is very appreciated when the novoacaine wears off. So far, for regular check ups, cleanings, fillings, an implant, and today’s emergency, I am really happy with this practice.

J O. from Saint Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


Very pleasant experience. I was fit into the schedule quickly for a cleaning and a subsequent filling that needed attention. Friendly staff who’ve all been there forever. Always a good sign when a business can retain staff. They actually saved me money by letting me know the previous dentist I was seeing was doing work that either didn’t really need to be done, or could be “watched”. While I never like the Novocain shots, they did a great job and I felt no pain during the drilling… Sensible and so far only good things to say. Will bring my wife and kids here.

Stacey J. from Saint Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


If you want a dentist office where you feel “at home” this is it! Everyone you interact with is incredibly friendly and professional. From the receptionist, office manager, hygienist, and dentists……..you get an “A” team. I switched from another outfit down the street and was looking for an incremental improvement; what I found was a HUGE difference. I felt the other place cycled you through and there were always long waits. Here they help you by informing you of everything so you can be your own advocate on making the right decisions. The best thing is that I’ve never had to wait more than 2-3 minutes! Sometimes they greet you at the door and walk you back to your room. I will be a life long client 🙂

Rachel C. from St Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


This is an awesome practice! Dr. B. and Julia who I usually see are amazing! Very thorough and really know what they are doing! ! Also, I think anyone who works there has to pass a humor test!! I will have to look into the massage chair that Stephanie R mentions; I have not had one when I have gone there 🙂

C A. from St Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


Our family of four has gone to Snelling Avenue dentistry for four year and were very pleased. Unfortunately, my company switched to Delta Dental PPO which Snelling Ave Dental doesn’t accept so we’re stuck finding a new dentist. Now we know how good we had it. This is a well run outfit that requires little waiting to be served. When the work is beyond their capabilities, they have a good network of specialists to refer us to (implant surgeon for me, pediatric dentist for my daughter who had particularly unique difficulties).

Michael Rainer (Source: Google)


A+ It’s a shame I can only give them five stars. Dr. B is the best in the business, and so fun too! He has done my veneers and crowns and everything else I can think of and all of it has fit perfectly. His staff is just as good as Dr. B especially Julia to whom I have been going for the last nine years. If I moved to another state I would still drive/fly back to see my friends there; and they do feel like friends. When I leave their office from say getting a routine cleaning, my cheeks hurt, not from the dentistry but from laughing. Please leave your current dentist and come see Bernie and his awesome crew.

Great clinic. I have been to a few places over the year and they have been ok. I was truly impressed. Clearly everyone liked working there, all friendly and nice. They were able to get me in same day due to a cancellation. They pulled all my insurance information and made the check in process very easy. The hygienist was amazing, the best I have had. She did a great job clean and explaining things. She was even able to floss under my fixed retainer, other hygienists just gave up or caused a lot of pain. Update: I went in today and needed a small filling, lucky they have a little extra time so they were able to do it this morning so I did not have to come back again. What great service!

I have never liked a dentist more in my life. I have even written a 1 star Yelp rating for a dentist before, so I’m really not kidding. At Snelling Ave Dental, I have always felt welcomed being there from checking in at the front desk to sitting in the patient’s chair. Everyone is extremely friendly and loves chatting with patients when they’re up for it. (Pro tip: Talk about food. They LOVE to try new foods and share their foodie experiences.) I’ve visited here for a total of 3-4 times over one year, and I like how seriously they take their work here. During checkups, the doctor informs me of ways to improve my brushing and the spots that might need more attention. Something that’s super simple, but I’ve never been told by a dentist what spots I haven’t been reaching. Besides checkups, I also had a mouthguard fitted because I constantly clench my teeth when I’m stressed. It was a pain-free process, and they checked my insurance coverage and gave me a quoted price before initiating the whole process. Their communication is amazing and there was no confusion. I’m really sad that I can no longer go to Snelling Ave Dental because I moved out-of-state recently, but I’m so happy that I was able to find a dentist that I was satisfied with.

I have been seeing Dr. Bomberg for my dentistry needs since I got my first tooth!  After 2 decades of of care, I would probably come back to Snelling Avenue Dental even if I moved halfway across the planet!  I am always treated promptly, and the hygienists are friendly, don’t lecture too much, and are also quick!  (No one wants to spend forever in the dentist chair!)  My fave hygienist even has a massage pad on the chair for a relaxing experience!  Even I can’t believe I can describe a trip to the dentist as relaxing!

Diane Schultz (Source: Facebook)


Just had a great check up with Dr. Bomberg for the first time at the brand new clinic. Was greeted very promptly and shown to a very clean room, beautifully appointed, and of course, I loved the bright purple uniforms! Was pleased with the consideration and easy manner of the appointment.

I’ve been going to Snelling Ave Dental for over 10 years and they’ve always been great! I can usually get an appointment within a week or so for cleanings and same day for emergencies. They offer me other services (like whiting and such) but aren’t pushy when I decline. They referred me to a surgeon for my wisdom teeth some years back, but still followed through and took care of the insurance.

Friendly & efficient. My check-up was pleasant from start to finish. I was admitted right on time. The thorough cleaning revealed a cavity which they were able to repair on that visit. The receptionist, dental assistants, and dentist made me feel welcome and comfortable. This was, as I recall, my third visit and all of them were consistently pleasant. I felt more like a guest than just a cliant. Thanks.
