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

Edward G. from Bala Cynwyd, PA (Source: Yelp)


I had a real Dentist phobia from my teens. I wish I had known about Dr. MARCUS a long time ago. They made me feel comfortable, explained in detail what they were going to do, and answered all my questions. After my first visit,which was the best dental experience I ever had, I thanked my friend who suggested Dr JONI and staff to me. I am so happy I found out Bout Dr Marcus!

I would like to start this off by saying that this is going to be a long review, that it glosses over many visits I’ve had here, and that it is very positive. I almost never write reviews, but I will say that if you’re looking to skim, the summary is: I would recommend this dentist to the absolute fullest to anyone I know who has any kind of serious dental problems or any dentist fears/hang-ups. If you’re looking for more of an in-depth description of the process and people there, though, please read on. I’ve had terrible teeth throughout most of my life, and never had the money or guts to really figure out a game plan for fixing them. On top of that, sometime around 30 I developed a sort of physical anxiety that left me restless whenever I was in situations that took away my ability to control my personal space. Thus, dental work has been, on top of having a pretty bad set of broken, yellowed and rotten teeth, really difficult for me to approach. I wish I could change the anxious part about myself, but it’s something that is just there, at least for the moment. To sum up my experiences with other dentists before I found Dr. Marcus’ office, it was mainly people looking at my teeth, seeing my insurance, and treating me as if I weren’t even a serious client. Clearly if I had allowed my teeth to get this bad, it wasn’t even worth their time to create a serious plan for me. Add to that fact that I was asking for some sort of sedation/pain amelioration (because of the anxiety) and the dentists I saw became even more dismissive. This was super-disheartening and led to me prolonging treatment even longer. From the first minute of my first visit, the people at Dr. Marcus’ office were insanely positive, therapeutic, gentle and effective. They also offer twilight sedation for the weak of heart, like myself, which is what made it all possible. I waited until my final crowns were put on to write this review, but I could have written it after my first interaction with the team. Every single person in that office was concerned for my dental health, while being funny and generally cool the entire time and making sure that my teeth would be as beautiful as they could be by the end of the process. I can’t believe how well everything turned out. My smile is amazing (even though there’s a bit more work to do) and they are so incredibly responsive and flexible to any questions I have or tweaks that need to be made to the treatment plan. Even though there are probably 50 dentists closer to where I live, I will never go anywhere else because of the amazing experience I’ve had there, an experience that is built completely upon the amazing, compassionate people who work there, especially Dr. Marcus herself. If you have difficulty with dental work, have teeth that you’re embarrassed about, or don’t know if you can afford to have your problems fixed but you want to speak with someone compassionate, I would wholly recommend you go to Dr. Marcus.

This is the absolute best place to go to for dental care and work. My father and I have now been attending for a number of years, rarely if ever leaving disappointed in the service or the treatment. Prices seem affordable, communication is timely and effective, and you get the care that one deserves when one of your teeth decides to rebel against you. Must visit place, and you can’t say that about a lot of healthcare facilities.

Sam M. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I am 50 years old and I have going to this office since I was 17 and I needed my wisdom teeth removed. I’ve been treated by a variety of doctors from Dr. Harold Marcus and now his daughter Dr. Joni Marcus. Every doctor and all the staff over the years have been great! They really make you feel at ease and comfortable in a place this is usually stressful for most.  I highly recommend them!

Pollab Das (Source: Google)


Love it. I am a patient of Dr Marcus since 2006. All the employees are really friendly. I love it there because they don’t treat you as a patient– they take care of you as a friend. Love it. I just hope they would remodel their office a little bit. For example- the waiting room chairs and the patient restroom. Wishing them the best.

Michael N. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


It’s not that close to where I live. There is a dentist literally 4 doors away. But I go here because I’m treated like family, The entire staff is not only welcoming but incredibly adept, and Dr. Joni is the best doctor/dentist I’ve ever been associated with. They are always willing to work with you, it often amazes me how genuinely concerned they are about helping. I’d give them 6 stars if I could.

Koya W. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


This has been my family dentist since I was about 8 years old! The family is funny nice and I love dr. Chew! Dr. Joni is okay. I just get my teeth cleaned every 6 months. They are very professional. I use insurance and there has never been a problem! I don’t I’ll recommend this dentist and I’ll stay a patient as long as I live in philly!! This place is small and family friendly. There is street parking only close by. Please arrive on time or call if your late. This place is clean but not modern.

Going to the dentist isn’t my favorite activity by any means but my experience at Total Dental Care was very different than past visits to “the chair” and “the drill”. I had very little apprehension and even less pain during and afterwards. Like my barber and my mechanic it takes time to find the right pros for your team. I’m happy to say I now include Dr. Marcus onto my happy band of personal professionals.

I had to have an extraction done. It went more smoothly than I anticipated. Even the needle for the anesthesia went well, because Dr. Joni Marcus put a gel on so the injection wouldn’t hurt. Angie was a great assistant, and Dr. Harold Marcus came in and did the extraction. I was done in less than an hour.

Cynthia W. from West Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to this dentist by my coworker and I’m very pleased. The location isn’t bad and the parking was better good. I was greeted by a polite receptionist and we made great conversation. Then I was escorted to the back to get X-rays done. They found something that was missed by my previous dentist. Smh. Dr. Joni was super sweet and very mild mannered. Her entire staff made me feel comfortable and explained everything to me in great detail. I was a bit nervous bc I was having problems with my wisdom tooth and they were very gentle with everything. I would def recommend friends and family here. I hope this helps anyone looking for a new dentist.

My only complaint is that I could never move away now that I found these great dentists! Warm, family atmosphere. The doctors know what they’re doing, and will go the extra mile to help you. The staff is kind and understanding and every precaution is taken for those of us who are “afraid of the dentist.” Just marvelous.

When I first went to Dr. Marcus Dentist, I immediately notice the sign on the door stating “WE CATER TO COWARDS “. I was very impressed with the statement and even more impressed when it turned out to be true. They were very kind and patient with my fear of what it is they do. I am loving my teeth and I will definitely keep all my appointments. I was so satisfied, that I am now taking my 5 year old granddaughter to Dr Marcus office. She wad first seen at 52nd Jefferson a new Dentist, however, I have been waiting for someone to call me back with an appointment and have not heard anything yet so I called Dr Marcus office on 7/14/17 and received an appointment for 9/1/17.

My husband generally goes to Dr. Marcus’ Total Dental Care. I’d switched my girls to this dentist office after I’d recently had issues with the previous dentist office. Every staff member I’d encountered during both visits were very helpful and seemed happy at their place of work. I would definitely refer anyone to Dr. Marcus’ Total Dental Care. Thanks!!

Very professional and well-trained staff. they give extra exceptional care to everyone they are A Step Above the Rest they come highly recommended and will deliver I would like to say for the people that like to splurge splurge on you you deserve it your health deserves it your family deserves it instead of getting that new big screen TV or Whatever item you desire take care of you first and if you have coverage that is only a plus take care of you and you will be just fine

Dr.Joni Marcus took care of me herself today and she was marvelous and so very pleasant and courteous as always, tell her thanks For the comfortable check up ,she’s a very good dentist , with excellent people and dental skills that means so very much when you in the dental chair I had a good day and tell her to have one also !

I simply love this place, the staff is simply amazing, personable, and welcoming. I lost a cousin having a simple root canal procedure (at another dentist office) so needless to say my fear of simple procedures are extremely high however, when I say each hygienist that came in talked to me throughout all of my procedures….I cannot thank all of you enough!

Jonathan Irons (Source: Google)


It had been at least ten year since I had been to the dentist, because of my fear of dentist and a couple of bad experiences. My significant other suggested I see his dentist, Dr. Joni Marcus. Dr. Marcus and her entire team took the time to first talk to me to find out why I was afraid of the dentist before ever looking in my mouth. Then they gave me options to make me feel comfortable. There is one technician In particular that held my hand during my extraction even though there was no pain, simply because she knew I was nervous. I highly recommend Dr Marcus and her team.

Dan Buckley (Source: Google)


Never listen to a 3rd party…Belinda is going on what she heard and sounds like a suspect story. Dr. Marcus does great work. As a former resident of the neighborhood, he was my dentist. I had a root canal which was approximately 12 years ago and the cap is still as good as new (hopefully writing this review doesn’t jinx it.) It was done so well that I went up the street to Falone’s and got a cheesesteak after the procedure since I knew I wouldn’t be back in the neighborhood for a while. Dr. Marcus knows that the hell he’s doing and you will be in good hands…only downfall is the location of the office.

Michael Fields (Source: Google)


Dr. Marcus has been my dentist for approximately 7 years and each experience has been pleasant. The doctors and the staff are friendly, knowledgeable and compassionate. My time is important and appreciate being seen timely and professionally. I would unequivocally recommend Total Dental Care for everyone who appreciates quality dental service that is delivered in an efficient and professional manner.

Ralph B. from Lansdowne, PA (Source: Yelp)


i been going only to marcus since 1989, they are very ‘personable” and patient with their patients, lots of nice women working there, the fees are cut/rate without compromise on attention to details-[they are not in a hurry to get you out] i think dr. [mr.marcus]  may have lost patience with someone complaining about basicly everything [like ‘mark s’] especially no free  oral b toothbrush -so sad. mr marcus recently worked on me and i was just in there last week-im always very happy when finished and respect the opinions of dr.joni and mr. marcus. [thanks again]

Darlene S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve never felt so comfortable going to the dentist until I went to Dr. Joni Marcus’ office. I love how the staff makes each patient feel important and the environment overall is nice and friendly. This is the dental practice that’ll take care of just about any dental problem; I’ve had root canals, extractions and an implant done here and all of my procedures were pain free with all positive results. Going to Dr. Joni Marcus for dental hygiene was a great decision for me, I highly recommend her!

Pat Evans (Source: Google)


This is a small private practice. I’ve been a patient since I was 19 years old. I am 58 now. They are flexible. They accomadate emergencies with a same day appoinytment, most of the time. The staff are very friendly and will try to help you resolve all dental issues. I am a Dental Coward. I hate pain, needles and the sound of the drill, sends me. I feel that I can talk through my issues with the doctor and staff. They don’t tell you to just get over it and act like and adult. This is my lifetime Dentist Office. I send members of my family to their office. Keep up the TGood work Dr. Joni and Staff!!!

Marc McGarrigle (Source: Google)


Everyone there is knowledgeable, professional, and very nice. I still go to Dr Marcus even though I’ve moved from the neighborhood because I value the friendly and courteous staff. No one likes going to the dentist, but they make the whole experience much easier and more comfortable.

Deb Rowell Wright (Source: Google)


I have been a patient at Marcus Dental for years. Dr Joni Marcus is always willing to listen, help & guide you through any dental concern. I am a big ‘chicken’ whn it comes to dental procedures, Dr R. Chew is great with his calm & reassuring manner for me. And Angie is the best dental tech EVER! And not to forget the wonderful office admin team . I do not usually do reviews but felt I had to do this one.

Theresa L. from Darby, PA (Source: Yelp)


I also have to disagree with the negative review. I don’t just have anxiety about dentists, I have a fear on the level with a phobia. (Several really bad experiencing many years ago.) It took every ounce of courage I had to go to my appointment. Dr. Marcus and her staff were kind, understanding, solicitous and informative. I was tended to almost immediately upon my arrival. There was always someone there with me. If I showed any anxiety at all, they stopped what they were doing and gave me a chance to catch my breath. When I objected to a standard piece of dental equipment, Dr. Marcus opted not to use it. The second I started experiencing pain, they stopped what they were doing and helped me relax. My options and the costs were clearly explained to me. I need several follow up appointments and I was offered one for 2 days later. Unfortunately my life obligations stopped me from taking that appointment but they did make one available to me the very next week, around my schedule. When you have a fear like mine it is incredibly hard to overcome it. Thanks to Dr. Marcus and her staff, I am not dreading my next visit. If even 1 thing had gone wrong during this initial visit, I would have left and probably never gone to see another dentist. While my fear is a long way from being gone, I am confident that, with time and the atmosphere at Dr. Marcus’ office, I will be able to overcome this. I am already extremely thankful to Dr. Marcus and her staff.

Jennifer D. from Sharon Hill, PA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr Marcus Dentist office for 22 years and never had any problems. The dentists who did my dental work did a great job and I never had any problems with my teeth. Everyone in the office is very friendly and they make you feel very comfortable.

It is always a pleasant experience when I receive dental services from DRS. Harold & Dr. Joni Marcus and Associates. Everybody is so nice and extremely professional. They use updated and use the latest high tech. equipment, (always up to date with the most modern technology.) The staff are very courteous and generally concern about insuring we, the patients are comfortable. I have been a patient with them since before I retired, 6 years ago and am extremely happy with all of the dental work that I have had done there. I truly recommend their service highly. You don’t feel the pain. YES, they numb you mouth real good and once they go in your mouth to do “whatever”, you will leave their office knowing that you have just experience, a little but if Heaven, on earth. Smiling all the way. If you are looking for a Dentist that you won’t dread going to, when needed, don’t look any further. I can guarantee you definitely will be as happy with their flawless services.

I couldn’t disagree with the negative review more! I have had some really horrible experiences with dentists and as a result hadn’t been to the dentist in 7 years! I’m so unbelievably glad I chose Dr Joni Marcus, on the recommendation of a friend! It has been a week since my appointment and I have not stopped talking about how great it was! Everyone in the office was helpful and generous with his or her time. It was explained that we would do x-rays and then Dr Marcus would come in for an exam and we’d talk about what was to happen next. I never felt like I didn’t know what was happening. It was all spelled out, which helped my anxiety tons! I’m super lucky, because there were no major problems other than a cavity and two fillings that needed replacing (one fell out a bit ago, and the other – even I could tell was degrading). Dr Marcus again talked through the whole process with me ahead of time so that I knew what was coming, and during the dreaded Novocaine (I really hate that part!) even counted down how long each of the shots would take! Overall – I was treated with great care, compassion, gentleness and humor. I have told everyone I work with and all of my friends and they are all starting to set up their own appointments. It’s a bit out of the way and maybe some of the decor could be considered dated? But, honestly… who cares! I’m not there for an interior decorator. I’m there for the care and that was exemplary.

I have been afraid to go to the dentist over the years because of the pain they cause me when I receive treatment from them. Sometimes I leave their office feeling worse instead of better. To me it seemed like they didn’t care about the way they treated me. After have a toothache for weeks I decided to find a new dentist. I figured over the years new treatment technology would provide me with a better experience. But when I my treatment at with Dr. Marcus I was overwhelmed with the care that he and his staff provide. While treating my tooth they wanted me to feel nothing. No pain at ALL is what they wish me to feel. They went above and beyond my expectations to ensure that I was comfortable and in no pain while they worked on my tooth. I will never go to any other dentist as long as I live. Thanks again for the amazing care and treatment Dr. Marcus

Good morning everyone I’ve just finished my visit with Dr Marcus and my dental experience was phenomenal the staff are very professional and courteous and will always make you feel comfortable. Whatever preconceived notions you may have about a dentist will quickly go away with the warm greeting from the staff and Dr alike. I will gladly urge anyone who needs dental care but have a phobia of a dentist to give them a try and watch your fears melt away Thanks dr.Marcus

Very good own Family Dental office I’ve been going here for over 20 years and I’ve always had good quality no problems I’ve had a couple caps I’ve had a couple wisdom teeth pulled and the reason why I started going here I dropped off someone my godmother and they had a sign saying we (cater to cowards ) and that drawed my attention cuz I was afraid of dentists but it’s a very good strong structured dental office dr. Joni Marcos and her father and the whole staff are very pleasant and the rest of the family also people and easily to get along with and you will find yourself feeling at home I was very afraid of the dental offices at one time but now I’m very confident and comfortable with the staff and the dentist that work with the family.

I’ve been going to the Marcus practice for at least 10 years. In that time I have moved to the other side of the city and tried dentists that were located closer to my home or job. I alway end up back at the Marcus practice. Both the dentists and the staff are professional and caring. They never recommended unnecessary treatments. I’ve always been happy with their work.

My daughter was a first time patient a few months ago and she had to get an extraction and two fillings. She’s never had Work done on her teeth before so she was very nervous. After everything was completed she walked out of the office extremely relieved. She said the dentist who worked on her was really really nice. He even played her favorite song to lighten the mood. His name was Dr Chess. I then recommended my mom to go there and she said they were really good. Now it’s my turn. I was in there about an hour ago for a crown and filling. Dr Joni’s Marcus was BEYOND AHHHMAZING. She explained the process the entire time. She even counted me down when she was almost done on my tooth. Dr Chess came in for my cleaning and he was just as nice. And let’s not forget Ms Barb. She is such a cute lady. She also did a great job assisting and placing my temp crown on. My interactions with the other ladies in the office were good as well on previous visits and this visit. Dr Joni have a great group of employees in her office. Now I see why one of the reviews stated that she travels from De or Nj to her office.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Marcus’ office. From the initial telephone appointment to my actual in office visit the team has been great. The conversation and interactions were genuinely warm and friendly. The xray techhnician was inviting (no scratched gums, if you have never experienced that I envy you), Dr Joni was friendly and took her time, though I didnt have any concerns she still managed to give me some good advice. Now the kicker, the hygeinist. I received a thorough cleaning without flinching or wringing my toes in pain. She was gentle, I didnt drown under the water pik and didnt gag from the suction. This was absolutely my best ever dentist appointment. I highly reccomend this team

On Friday January 12th 2018 I had a root canal performed by Dr Rosenbach and assisted by Avery at Dr Joni Marcus and Associates dental office. I have to say thank you to all that were involved. The proccedure was painless, the people were friendly and pleasant making me feel comfortable in a stressful situation. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for Dental Care.
