PATIENT REVIEWS

Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Joseph S. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I just started with this dentist today and I had three significant procedures done. The doctor was highly recommended in online reviews at his previous place of employment. The process was impressive from the initial consultation, decision making, information given and an extremely smooth execution of the first phase of treatment. The staff is comprised of very efficient and pleasant people including Dr. Gelbart, of course.

Very efficient and organized office! I was a new patient and was able to get an appointment right away. Jaime was clear in communicating what was being done as well as being conscious of my needs during my cleaning and X-rays! Sometimes it’s hard when you have stuff in your mouth! Most hygienists let me drool until I say something. Dr. Steven was friendly and truthful. He even leveled out my two front teeth that had nicks in them, complimentary… thank you! I’d also like to mention I was a little hesitant about going into Center City but was so happy to find that his office was right on the street – no big building with elevators, getting lost! It was a fast visit! I need to come back to get something else done, however, they gave me a print out of what it would cost from my insurance coverage vs no insurance (I had a waiting period to be eligible for certain benefits). Needless to say, SUPER helpful! 🙂

I’ve always had Dental Trauma and anxiety for as long as I can remember. Dr. Steven Gelbart and his amazing staff have been nothing short of incredible and have helped me move through that trauma and have been patient with me through extensive procedures. They have state of the art technology and equipment with a pristine facility and I HIGHLY recommend them!

I chose Independence Dental because of their location to my office, but was pleasantly surprised to find an office that was so clean, organized, and kind. The various staff members I encountered were all very courteous, and the best part, quick! I wasn’t left waiting for the doctor, and was out in less than an hour. I will be back!

I hadn’t been to the dentist in about a decade when I went in for my checkup/cleaning. Jamie cleaned my teeth, and she was extremely friendly and explained everything she was doing in a patient and kind manner. I was really nervous about my appointment, and she actually made it rather relaxing. She made sure I was covered for everything she did, and sent X-rays to my insurance to check if I’ll be covered for other work I need. I definitely will be going back.

I visited Dr. Gelbart’s office initially for an emergency, and he quickly resolved my pain with no interventions, just antibacterial mouthwash. I subsequently returned for a complete visit & I’m definitely planning to remain with Dr. Gelbart & his efficient and welcoming team. The pristine, modern offices are accessible from street level ( no worrying about elevator buttons ). Dr. Gelbart offers quality dental care in cutting edge offices, including panoramic xrays ( no more fumbling with bite wings in your mouth). He is caring, client-focused and he & his professional team meticulously follow all Covid-19 protocols. I highly recommend this dental practice.

I’ve been going to Dr. Gelbart for several years now, and I’ve recommended him to all my friends/family. He’s a great dentist, has a great bedside manner, and he’s a good guy. I started seeing him when I lived in center city. I’m now in the suburbs, but I still go into city to see Dr. Gelbart for dental care…he’s the best. Also, his new office is beautiful, and the location is great.

Let me start with how I have been suffering to get some relief from my pain for 4 months now i was having pain in my upper jaw above my one tooth and felt difficulty breathing like there was a blockage of some sort all day every day and I found out by a family member about Dr Gelbart. I have gone to numerous doctors, dentists, and an endodonist to try and find some relief where no one that could help me find some relief or an answer why. I went to an Ent, to my regular doctor which they did their best to try and help me had a cat scan a number of xrays AND COULDN’T See anything wrong. what got me was the compassion and heart dr Gelbart had to see me and the expertise to be able to do a xray and see the problem RIGHT OFF THE BAT and recommended that the tooth be removed DUE TO A CYST and have an implant done, ONCE THEY REMOVED THE TOOTH AND CYST I FINALLY GOT RELIEF THAT ALL THE DENTISTS I WENT TO SAID THEY DIDNT SEE ANYTHING IF ANYONE WANTS TO KNOW A GOOD PLACE AND SEE MY REVIEW THIS MAN CARES ABOUT HIS PATIENTS AND PEOPLE AND IS A GOOD MAN AND I CAN SEE THE WAY HE TREATED ME AND WAS HONEST WITH ME ABOUT EVERYTHING HE SAW AND ITS HARD TO FIND A DENTIST THESE DAYS THAT ITS ABOUT THE PATIENTS AND I RESPECT THAT ABOUT HIM THANK YOU SO MUCH I FINALLY FOUND OUT WHAT WAS WRONG AND FINALLY CAN HEAL. And start the process of my very first implant if this man is able to look and see from the xrays when others couldn’t very professional and experienced highly recommend this Dr.

Dr.Gelbart is a great dentist!!! Excellent staff. I had to go in today because I was having pain in my mouth I knew I needed a root canal , but he told me that the tooth couldn’t be saved so he had to pull it. I was soo nervous cause I had to get it pulled and I didn’t want to deal with the pain. He told me it will be alright and all I would feel is pressure. His assistant held my hand the whole time which I was grateful for because I had support!!! Even tho I was crying while he was doing it and screaming a bit lol he made me feel comfortable and spoke words of encouragement! He is a excellent dentist and nice person he knows his stuff. I would highly recommend him!!

Dr. Steve Gelbart is an incredible dentist, he relieved my tooth pain, installed perfect implants, and did so quickly and without pain. He has an amazing new office in Philadelphia, filled with brand new, state of the art equipment and technology. Independence Dental is great and not your average dental practice. Dr. Steve Gelbart will make you smile!

Having been patient (as has my daughter as well) of Dr. Gelbart for approx. 5 years in his previous office (before March 2020), I can say, without hesitation, that I am thrilled and delighted that he has now set out on his own. Indeed his new office on South 7th Street in Center City, near Chestnut, is not only convenient to everything, but is spacious, clean and comfortable. He is an excellent dentist who keeps up with all modern tech (and has even given given seminars on such to other dentists). He has a “light touch” when digging around in your mouth, and he even does same-day crowns, which are fabricated right in the office. He is super responsible about office hygiene. And he is quite compassionate about the predicaments and challenges in patients’ lives. All in all, this is a good guy and a great dentist!

The team at Independence Dental is awesome! Dr.Gelbart was incredibly thorough with his exam and addressed all of my concerns. The Dental Hygienist Jamie gave me a cleaning and was very detailed. Everything was explained to me in a very professional manor. The office looks great 5 stars.

I knew Steve through a mutual friend. While I heard good things about his skills as a dentist, I waited until my old dentist retired before checking him out. Now I can safely say I found my new dentist. First, let’s talk about the office. Clean, organized, and sterile could all be used to describe it. It is pristine! That doesn’t even scratch the surface on what they are doing to support COVID, which just takes it above and beyond. With all the latest equipment and big screen monitors in every room, you’ll be as comfortable as you can be for a dentist appointment. It was great to see the X-Rays and have Steve walk down what he saw. It is also reassuring to know that should an dental emergency come up, he will have everything he needs. Other notables: a friendly staff from the front desk to the dental hygienists. Validated parking across the street should you need. Plenty of space should you need to bring the family in for their check-ups together.

I cant even begin to describe how amazing this Dental group is. Stacey and Dr. Gelbart made me feel so comfortable even though I was getting my mangled teeth fixed. I highly recommend this place for any Philly people looking for an amazing dentist. 100 out of 10 stars!!!!!

My dental implant experience at Independence Dental was quick, clean, efficient, well done and affordable. Dr. Gelbart was very knowledgeable with over 10 years of experience and it showed. He explained to me the procedure in a very understandable manner. His office is equipped with the latest in state of the art dental equipment. I actually went to 4 different places before deciding to get my implant done here. They truly go out of their way to make sure you recieve the best in quality and care.

After finding out my previous dentist would no longer accept my dental plan, I had to find a new dentist. Dr. Gelbert was opening a new office on 7th Street ( which is two blocks from my work ) So once they opened I went in and made an appointment. I couldn’t be happier. He is a really nice person and staff are amazing ( all very personable and very sweet ). State of the art dental equipment and a very bright and welcoming atmosphere. I would highly recommend it.

Dr. Gelbart and his staff are absolutely incredible. I ended up having to come in for an emergency tooth extraction, He and his staff stayed late until I got there and removed a tooth that was causing me a great deal of pain. I’m incredibly grateful and extremely impressed with the quality of service and I received, the cleanliness and beauty of the facility and the extremely fair cost I paid after. I highly recommend Independence Dental and Dr. Gelbart.

Yesterday I had the worst tooth ache of my life. My regular dentist office was closed and with all the crazy stuff happening in the world I didn’t want to go to the emergency room. After searching online I was fortunate enough to come across Independence Dental Group. Dr. Steven Gelbart had just opened this new practice which is the cleanest and most modern office I have ever seen. Dr. Gelbart and his staff were accommodating, caring and treated me with respect. I needed a root canal on an upper tooth, and it didn’t hurt at all! The entire process took an hour and I was able to watch butterflies move across a TV screen the whole time. I never thought I could enjoy being at the dentist!
