I have been looking for a dentist since moving to the area and came across Serang Dental based on Yelp reviews. Dr. Serang and his team live up to every 5-star review posted here. They are courteous, informative, and very professional. I have some emergency work that needed to be done, called them when they opened and they squeezed me in the same day.

I had gone to a chain dentist (dental solutions) and got my mouth throughly ruined by a shoddy haphazardly installed implant that kept falling out. Dr. Serang made me a new abuntment and crown, special ordered me a super comfortable healing cap, and installed my new tooth perfectly during the current epidemic!

I recently got a root canal – which for me was a BIG DEAL ( I have passed out in a dentist chair before) . Serang Dental did a fantastic job making me feel comfortable and relaxed during the entire process. The staff was very friendly and the environment was clean. Oh and I should mention they are affordable too. I don’t have dental insurance so it was a big help to me!

Jill K. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Serang is truly an excellent dentist! He is very compassionate,honest and trustworthy, and he makes his patients feel at ease in the office. He provides high quality dental care, but he does not try to up-sell or force any unnecessary treatment plans or procedures.  All of the staff members are very friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Serang Dental Associates!!

I have been a patient at Serang Dental for several years; the staff is very friendly and professional. They are always able to work around my work crazy work schedule and find a day/time that works best for me. You can tell Dr. Serang cares about the overall health and well-being of his patients which is a valuable community commodity these days. I highly recommend them to anyone who listens! Also, I am loving the new office updates!!!!

Ben H. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Serang commits to high quality dental care with integrity and compassion. He treats every patient in a caring, empathetic, honest and professional manner. He is truly an excellent and trustworthy dentist. The staffs are amazing, friendly, and caring. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a reliable dental practice to take care of their oral health.

Ron A. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I previously had a root canal done. It was long, a little painful and left me with a gap in my mouth that trapped food. Dr. Serang suggested I get it redone and informed me that the gap shouldn’t even be there. I put it off because of my last experience. Good thing I took his advice because he knocked it out the park. Proper application of Lidocaine on my gums before injecting the Novocaine rendered the procedure painless. But let’s back up! The temporary implant he put in before getting the crown was a perfect fit and colored well. Dr. Serang explained my options and weighed the pros and cons with me. He was knowledgeable, friendly and super good at his job. I used to hate going to the dentist, with this guy and his staff, I would gladly go every month! In fact, can we get a check up 3 times a year, instead of two!?

I had a crown fall off of a tooth and had to get in as soon as possible to fix it. The front desk was friendly and called me back within a reasonable amount of time. Since I was paying out of pocket, they quoted me what I could possibly be paying, which ended up being right on point. I was met at the time I was scheduled for and was in and out. I would recommend and go here for future needs.

Dr. Serang is a dentist who does everything he can to make you feel welcome and comfortable while providing you with top-notch dental care. I was very impressed that Dr. Serang cleaned my teeth on my first appointment so he could get to know me and my teeth. I was also impressed by his knowledge of holistic health. Later I had a dental emergency, and he went out of his way to get me in and then to see a specialist as soon as possible. Like most people, I don’t enjoy getting work done on my teeth, but since going to Serang Dental Associates, my anxiety about the experience has completely disappeared.

Kira H. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Serang is wonderful! Went in for a routine cleaning this week and was very impressed by the attentiveness of the entire staff. My teeth are EXTREMELY sensitive, which usually make even the simple checks and cleanings painful. Not this time! Dr. Serang was incredibly careful and gentle, really taking his time to make sure I was comfortable. After my positive experience, even my husband has made an appointment with him!

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


Dr Serang is different than other dentists. He really cares, and does his best to do right by the patient. I came off of 4 years with a dentist who I didn’t feel really listened to me, and charged me a lot of money for things I’m not sure I needed. After one 20 minute conversation with Dr. Serang I felt much more comfortable that this guy would tell me the truth and not try to gouge me. Highly recommend him! I haven’t been going to him long enough to know if his work lasts the test of time, but the dental surgeon that he sent me to for my dental implant told me that Dr Serang was his favorite too, and the surgeon even gives Dr Serang’s patients a break because he’s a great dentist and doesn’t give headaches. I’d say thats a pretty good endorsement as well!

Search no further… you have just found your new dentist!! Trust me… You will find out what I did… Dr. Serang is the very best dentist that I have visited in my (many) years of life experiences. His procedures are done painlessly and expertly, with the utmost care taken to ensure that each patient is treated like an individual in a happy, warm and genuine atmosphere. This makes Serang Dental Associates totally unique. A model of today’s best practitioners in the profession, he is up to date in all aspects of dental care. This includes a broad range of medical knowledge, employing cutting edge technology and techniques – all of which allows him to give his patients the very best of care. And yet he is traditionally kind and compassionate – always putting his patient’s well-being first and foremost. As I said… Unique! My wife and I read a ton of reviews about dentists in the Philadelphia area, and the ones written about Serang Dental Associates helped us make that (scary-ish) leap of faith and by doing so we found the Best of the Best! I had 2 Root Canals and Crowns done over 3 visits – and after my first visit was finished I said: -> “I think that was the best medical experience I’ve ever had.” And it was! A family based practice, my new granddaughter will most definitely become a patient of Dr. Serang… as soon as she gets all of her teeth! 🙂 I love her too much to send her somewhere else.

Jeanee V. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I wish I could take Dr. Serang back with me to Seattle to be my dentist for life! This is the only dentist I’ve gone to the past two years living in Philly… I loved this place from the very first visit. I always feel so taken care of! The staff are knowledgable, patient and kind. It’s clear that Dr. Serang truly cares. I love the fact that I can ask as many questions as I want whether it be about my own case or general questions about their tools and techniques (I’m absolutely fascinated with dentistry). They never make you feel rushed at any point during your appointment. The facility is super clean and cozy. Another plus is that they have free street parking and their very own private lot just outside! So what are you waiting for? This is the place to book your next dentist appointment! You’ll definitely leave with a smile! 😀

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


As a person who is scared of going to the dentist, doesn’t like to wait and likes a thorough explanation of things, I highly recommend Serang Dental Associates. I’ve had great experiences so far with Dr. Serang and his office, for my initial appointment, follow up cleaning, and an emergency visit for a toothache.

Andrew G. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going here for a couple of years now for all of my (and my wife’s) dental needs. Exceptional office. Pleasant, clean and modern. Friendly staff and Dentists and probably the most efficient doctors office I have ever been to. Never a wait. I have had cleanings, fillings and now resolved a problem with past work – everything has always been flawless. Could not more highly recommend them.

Ron Adams (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Serang and his staff are the most welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable people I have met in the industry. I have searched high and low for a good dentist, but the problem was I didn’t really know what that meant. I do now! It’s pain free care and it’s excellent work. It’s educating the patient about care and prevention. Dr. Serang and his staff are the epitome of first class dentistry.

Sophie R. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Love this place! I had Lumineers installed by another dentist who did a terrible job so I had to have them removed and replaced:( Dr. Serang did an excellent job! And this was no easy matter! Now, I need to do the same for my lower veneers, which were, also, very poorly installed! So that’s my next project. I trust Dr. Serang will do an outstanding job. I am back after my six lower veneers were removed and replaced too due to gum disease. I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Serang and his super friendly staff! I just love going there. Now both my upper and lower gums have recovered. They are pink and healthy and Dr. Serang made it happen! Absolutely outstanding job! I highly recommend him.

Ryan G. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t know how much detail I can go into without it coming off like I have a major crush on Dr. Serrang! This guy does great work, he’s gentle, makes me feel like I’m the only client in the office and is incredibly meticulous. I’ve had some bad dental experiences in the past so I’d like to think I have a keen eye of good vs bad… Dr. Serrang is beyond good! So good in fact, my wife has switched dentists recently and is now a client!

Dr Serang and his amazing team do everything possible to make their patients feel like they are family. In the middle of a very busy day Dr. Serang called me to discuss my husband’s TMJ symptoms. He spent over 20 minutes coming up with a plan and he wouldn’t get off the phone with me until he knew he knew he answered all of our questions. His team even called me a couple days later to check on my husband. They rock !

Angelo D. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


As one who has an extreme fear of the dentist and would avoid going as much as possible, I am so very glad that I found Dr. Serang and his understanding, caring staff. They all listened and  understood my concerns and fears and treated me accordingly. I no longer have ANY fear or concern going to the dentist thanks to the way they conduct business. By all means the most gentle dentist out there with virtually no pain experienced during my three visits to correct a split tooth and follow up cleanings! I recently returned for my 6 month check-up and again no anxiety or worries! I have convinced my wife and family to become his patients! If I could give 10 stars I would.Wonderful experience.

Stephen K. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I grew up in an impoverished house where there was no floss, where we drank sugary, artificially flavored orange juice right before bed, and where brushing teeth was just an occasional, voluntary habit. I was never taken to a dentist until I was a teenager dealing with an excruciating toothache, and at that very first visit I was told I would need two root canals. As an adult capable of leading an orderly life, I became much more conscientious about brushing throughout the day and flossing at least once every night, but by that point significant damage had already been done. My teeth are weak. I grind them in my sleep at night, which doesn’t help. They’re crooked, a trainwreck. Although my dental hygiene is now top notch, I can’t escape the damage that’s already been done. In the past, I’ve dealt with dentists who blamed me and treated me like garbage. My dentist in DC shamed me for, in his opinion, having worse teeth than villagers he had operated on in Jamaica. As a white American, he told me, I shouldn’t have such bad teeth. I visited him over a dozen times without insurance and put thousands of dollars on my credit card. I vigorously brushed every day using expensive fluoride-loaded toothpastes that I bought online. But even that couldn’t stop the march of decay. My dentist in Austin treated me like a specimen. His practice was completely open to other patients, with no privacy whatsoever, probably because that was the cheapest floorplan possible. While operating on my tooth one day, without asking my permission or saying anything to me at all, he loudly called over all the dental hygienists to come marvel over my mouth, referring to my tooth pulp as “shoe leather” and acting like he was a barker at a freak show. “Would you look at that? That’s textbook. That’s got to be about the worst I’ve ever seen.” Meanwhile, the angry woman at the front desk was essentially running a scam, trying to milk the customers for as much money as they could legally get. Even though I had insurance, they had found a way to charge people for anesthesia. They had, in fact, found a way to charge patients for absolutely everything and then some. Going to that dentist was one of the most thoroughly unpleasant experiences of my life. So, yes, I’m afraid of the dentist–but not because of the pain or because of the drill. I’m afraid of dentists themselves. But then my husband told me about Dr. Serang. I really mean it when I say that this guy is the absolute best. I joined Yelp so that I could write a positive review for him. He’s honest, he’s open, he’s friendly. He tells you what your options are, and you can always trust that he has your best interests at heart. He’s a doctor who clearly wants to help people above all else. And, at least as far as I can tell, he’s very good at his job. He’s fixed my teeth without once making me feel overwhelmed or uncomfortable, and that really does mean a lot to me. And it’s not just him, either. The whole staff and the office itself is warm, down to earth, and accommodating. Honestly, and I say this without exaggeration, recommending Dr. Serang is about the most wholehearted recommendation I can possibly give.

Renee K. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Wonderful practice!  A dentist that actually listens to you and works with you!  Dr. Serang and his staff are fabulous!  I am deathly afraid of the dentist. Dr. Serang sits with you and talks with you and tells you everything that is going to happen; he calms you down and does the best he can to allay your fears.  So glad I found him!

I was recently in for a routine cleaning and had a terrific experience! Excellent front desk, attentive staff, and extremely gentle cleaning. I have extraordinarily sensitive gums & teeth & my cleaning was top notch with no bleeding or soreness afterward. (This is a big deal!) I would (and do) recommend this office to anyone & everyone! It’s clean, well maintained, and spacious. Thanks Serang Dental! ☺️

Richard Miller (Source: Google)


Top notch in every aspect. The staff is terrific and helpful, the place is clean and up-to-date, and the doctor never ever makes you feel uneasy. He is great at working with you and your insurance, making sure you know exactly what all of your options are. I never worry about going to this dentist office – and that’s a pretty big accomplishment!

Leah C. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


This is a great place to go for Dental Care. The office is lovely. Very soothing and nicely decorated..which helps when you are nervous about being at the dentist in the first place! Dr. Serang is really nice and gentle. The Dental Hygienist was a sweetheart and did a great job. I also took my two kids there (ages 2 and 5) and all went smoothly. The staff is really good and patient with kids. The receptionist was great too. All in all- this is a great family Dentist to go to! And this is after years of looking for a dentist in the Philly area that I liked. Thank you Serang Dental Associates!!!

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


I visited Dr. Serang’s office a couple of weeks ago. I was impressed to say the least!!! It was clear that Dr. Serang loves people. He made me feel comfortable and was very sensitive to my needs. The work he has done on my teeth was outstanding. If you are looking for a dentist that knows what he is doing and truly cares about his patients, then Dr Serang is your doc.

Susan B. from Conshohocken, PA (Source: Yelp)


I called for extreme tooth pain and the lady on the phone was excellent with helping me make an appointment as soon as possible. Luckily, there was an opening within the next hour. I was taken care of and Dr. Serang was the best dentist I’ve ever been to. He was personable, explained everything, and his work did wonders. I was very pleased and looks like I found my dentist for life.

J P. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Serang, is an amazing dentist. I have a whole host of work that needs to be done and during my first visit they took the time out to still do a cleaning. Which is big because every other dentist I went to wouldn’t do a cleaning without the dental work being completed first. I had a few extractions today and Dr. Serang answer my million and one questions and provided me with great information. He and the young woman (I think her name is Heather) made sure I was ok the entire time and I honestly did not feel a thing. He is a genuine person and cares for his patients.

Ron Adams (Source: Google)


Dr. Serang is top notch and at the forefront of Dental Care. His approach is patient friendly and pain free. Not only have my cleanings gone amazingly well, Dr. Serang fixed a gap left from a poorly done root canal. The things I felt were just normal, the pain, the gap left, the poor temporary fit, were all things Dr. Serang proved he could do better. His hygienist are top notch, friendly, and give great advice on dental care. Dipping my floss in Listerine, brushing at an angle, even how to properly use an electronic tooth brush correctly were all very well explained. I can not recommend this guy enough. If you are looking for a new dentist, this guy is top notch and a class act! My smile has never been better!

This is the first time I have ever been so upset with a place as to leave a negative review. I was a patient here for approximately three years and over that time, had several cavities filled. At the time, I did not believe they were well done–after the fillings were done, there were large pockets between my teeth where food would be captured. I mentioned this to Dr. Serang, and he dismissed my concern. Well, I finally found a new dentist, and sure enough, I have five cavities, four of which are from the fillings I had done at Serang Dental. My new dentist remarked several times at how poorly done my latest round of fillings were and how they were not done with attention to detail, which is what created the gaps. I am very angry. I have a lot of dental anxiety, which Dr. Serang tried to make me feel bad about despite having witnessed me have an embarrassing panic attack the first time I was scheduled for fillings with him. After that terrible experience, I asked for a prescription to ease my nerves for the first time in my life, which he tried to dissuade me from repeatedly, attempting to make me feel ashamed and guilty about my anxiety attack as though it was something I could control. Now, I have to have even more dental work done just to undo the shoddy work I received at Serang Dental. I would give one star, but I always received great care from the receptionists and hygienists. If you do not need any fillings done, this is a good enough place to go. If you are prone to cavities, go elsewhere.

It seems strange to me to like a dental office so much, but they are amazing. I came to Serang after a bad experience at another chain dental office in the area. The two things I look for in a dental office is good work and no upselling, which is exactly what I got here. About a year ago, I moved to South Philly and I still make the effort to come here and get my teeth cleaned. You probably won’t be able to get an appointment right away (it took me about 3-4 weeks to get in) but it’s worth getting in.

Jess L. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I haven’t been to the dentist in years and selected Serang Dental because of the great reviews. I’m glad I did! They were so kind and patient. They were flexible in their schedule to get me in as soon as possible. They knew I was experiencing pain and were great about not adding to that when examining me. I’m so glad I chose Serang!

Bridget K. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I was wayyyyy (painfully, horrifyingly, embarrassingly) overdue for a dental check-up, and kept putting it off. If that sounds like you — or even if you are better about getting to the dentist regularly — drop what you’re doing and make an appointment with Dr. Serang. I was in an out in under an hour, and it was a breeze. Like, unbelievably pleasant. Dr. Serang and his staff are super nice and reassuring and, if they were judging me for my drastic lapse in seeking dental attention, they never once let on. I’d recommend Serang Dental Associates to anyone.

Char K. from Market East, Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Wow! This office is lovely and so are the staff. Dr. Serang did an excellent job cleaning & checking my teeth. I have super-sensitive teeth & gums & am very picky when it comes to my mouth/teeth being touched. Dr. Serang has a gentle touch & relaxed demeanor & I immediately felt comfortable and at ease. The dental chairs are soft and comfy & the rooms have flat-screen TVs for watching during long procedures & also reviewing your digital X-rays. (How cool is that?) I had a few cavities filled by Dr. Serang & honestly, it was a nearly painless experience! He took time to adjust everything perfectly & addressed all my concerns. For someone who’s had sensitive teeth forever & some really bad experiences with fillings, this dental practice is a breath of fresh air!  They care about their patients & treat them with respect. Looking forward to my next cleaning!

Christie P. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


After a horrible experience at another local dentist I’m so happy I found this place. Thank you to Ariel for taking such good care of me today. These guys really care about the work they’re doing and it shows. The staff are friendly, professional, and the quality of work is outstanding. When asking about other services like Invisalign, they explained costs, financing options, and length of treatment without being pushy. Overall, this place is fantastic. I am looking forward to my next 6 month cleaning!
