I’ve not been to the dentist since the pandemic but had a dental emergency. The safety protocols they’ve implemented at Suffolk Dental Group are top notch. This will be unsurprising to anyone whose been there before. Beyond the COVID protections, like so many other reviewers, I cannot say enough about how amazing Dr. Hsu and everyone who works there are. The care is so thorough and gentle. Everyone is so patient with people who have anxiety about dental care. Everyone is treated with such dignity. Dr. Hsu and his team are so engaged and curious, always learning and sharing such helpful information. They truly see patients as whole people. So appreciative!

All the staff at Suffolk Dental are friendly and well oriented. We have the feeling like home without any pressure. They take all the necessary procedures to make the clinic as a safe area during the COVID. I have been working in NY and NJ since 2015 and still keep Suffolk Dental in Boston as my choice.

Dr. Hsu and his staff are very knowledgeable, skilled, prompt, and friendly. They patiently and clearly answer questions and do not try to push any type of services and products on you, like my previous dentists (e.g. tooth whitening). The office itself is very clean and the equipment is new /state of the art. I’ve had bad experiences with other dentists in Boston being late, not doing a good job and requiring “fix it” visits, having rude & incompetent staff, or being unfriendly or unhelpful themselves. I’m so relieved to have found this place finally and will probably commute here for my cleanings even when we move away. Parking around the office (across from Boston Commons) is tough, but this is the best dental practice I’ve ever been to.

I’ve been with Suffolk Dental Group for nearly five years and have not ever considered going elsewhere. Dr Hsu and his staff deliver great, caring service: he wants to get to know you and is very attentive to your needs. I’ve probably done the whole gamut of dental work and can speak about all of them: – Fillings: Dr Hsu is meticulous and explains to you from the x-rays what needs to be done and why. – Root canal: Dr Hsu and the endodontist were a great team. The whole root canal process was painless (no throbbing after procedures, I didn’t take any painkillers); Dr Hsu without complaint or admonishment put back in the “spacer tooth” (while the crown was made) when I had accidentally popped it out flossing. Great service! I have not had any complaints with the root canal since – Invisalign: Took a little less than two years to do but that’s because Dr Hsu wasn’t happy with the results the first time round – he’s a perfectionist – now I have perfectly aligned teeth! They’re very knowledgeable and I came to him -after- a consultation with a regular (aka wire braces) adult orthodontist who insisted on pulling out two teeth to make space. Dr Hsu managed to get my teeth aligned without any teeth pulling – he listened to my concerns about not wanting any teeth pulled and conveyed that to Invisalign (who had also initially recommended pulling one tooth). Right now I’m looking at dental insurance that will allow me to still be his patient because I don’t want to go anywhere else! You can’t go wrong with Suffolk Dental!

The ultimate caring and educational dental practice I have ever been to. I have been a patient for at least six years. Even after moving out from Massachusetts and relocating to other states I return to this practice. Dr. Hsu is painless, thorough and thoughtful as is his entire staff. If you are searching for a place to have great dental care this is the place!

FEAR NO MORE….   After years of not going to the dentist because of fear I have found a wonderful dentist.  I went in office for a cleaning exam and xrays.  After my appointment I did get a treatment plan and it was explained to me in detail for the services I needed.  THere was no pressuring into doing any treatment that was unnecessary.  Dr Hsu and his staff are absolutely superb and very friendly.  They are simply the best.  The office is very professional and convenient and affordable……

Nancy M. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Highly recommend this dental office and doctor Hsu! It has been about two years I go to this office for my dental treatment and I don’t regret a second or a penny I have spent there. This dental office is by far the best dental office I have experienced. Doctor Hsu is a very knowledgeable and a very ethical doctor. In my experience he never charge extra or recommend any unnecessary treatment. Also the result of treatments are always great. He has done filling and crown for me and all services and treatments have my highest satisfaction. He is very kind, attentive, friendly, professional and a great listener. He also gives you great suggestions about health and hygiene. in general all staff in this office are very caring and professional. They have a great dental cleaning team as well. I just wish Dr Hsu was my dentist since the beginning of time! and the same for his dental cleaning team! Highly recommended!

I was having pain in my mouth and jaw. I called to make an appointment and they were able to get me in the next day. Their COVID precautions were the best I have seen in any other facility I have been in. Everyone was very attentive, nice and really cared about what was going on with me and finding the right solution/s. Dr. Hsu was very knowledgeable and informative. I hadn’t been to Suffolk Dental in about about 3 years because I moved out of the city and it was not convenient for me anymore to just get a cleaning every 6 months, but they were the first dentist office that came to mind when I was experiencing pain because of past experiences. I would highly recommend them for all or any dental care need.

I’ve been going to Suffolk Dental Group for over 10 years. They are professional and friendly. Jalila is my dental hygienist and she is absolutely wonderful. For a dental office, they give you the best service, they even give you hot towel to wipe your face, it was like in a spa! Dr. Hsu is super nice and smart, and he continues to learn the latest technologies. I felt totally safe going back after COVID because they were cleaned and they made sure they follow all the sanitation procedures. I highly recommend them.

Tigran M. from Sarasota, FL (Source: Yelp)


Finding Dr. Hsu was a blessing. The passion for his profession and the care for people is obvious. This doctor has golden hands and heart. He puts patients before financial gain. My wife and I are impressed by his and his team’s professionalism and friendliness. Dr. Hsu is amazing and I wouldn’t want to go to any other doctor. Front desk help is outstanding. Ann and Terry are so knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We are very thankful to Suffolk Dental Group and grateful for all their help.

Julianne N. from Framingham, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hsu is awesome! Yes, the location isn’t great, but there are dodgy spots all over Boston — kind of difficult to find a “warm” location in a city. I always feel reassured by him and his staff. Regular cleanings are thorough and my teeth always feel very clean when I leave the office. The front desk does a good job of explaining what is owed and what is covered by insurance, which not all places do. I’ve had a few questions about this and they always point me in the right direction. I’ve had a few things come up since I moved to Boston 6 years ago outside of regular cleanings. 1. Got married and one of my bonded teeth was becoming discolored. I scheduled time with Dr. Hsu to fix it. He was very nice, asked my opinion and asked multiple times before packing up that it was comfortable and that I was happy. The overall outcome was great and the cost was very reasonable. My wedding pictures looked awesome and I felt confident smiling. 2. More recently, my 3rd wisdom tooth started coming through and I was experiencing extreme pain. They squeezed me in day of and Dr. Hsu explained what was happening in great detail. He assured me of how we were going to treat it, and as other reviews suggest he has a holistic view on health and dental health (which I really appreciate it) — for example, I have an infection and he suggested Listerine + antibiotics to treat it, but if I’m interested in a natural solution, warm salt water should also suffice. I appreciate multiple suggestions and lenses he takes to medicine. Overall, I feel very comfortable and happy going to him.

I’ve been going here for a few years now and I’ve always been happy with my visits. I feel welcomed, taken care of and my teeth have shown significant positive results since switching over to the SDG team. Given the Covid outbreak I was a little nervous on how their protocols would be but as always they surpassed my expectations and made sure they were inline and above what the CDC guidelines recommend. I highly recommend.

Suzanne T. from Oviedo, FL (Source: Yelp)


I was visiting Boston on a Saturday afternoon in Oct 2016 when I had a dental emergency. Using yelp, I tried to find a dentist that was still open. Suffolk Dental was only going to be open for another half an hour when I called them. The wonderful dentist, Dr. Hsu and staff stayed open and took care of me- my visit ended an hour and a half after they had closed. I highly recommend them and if I was in Boston, they would be my dental practice of choice. You cannot go wrong using them!!!!

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


I needed a second opinion for an old root canal that my other dentist thought has an infection and I called in last week. They were able to get me an appointment in a week (today) and I saw Dr. Hsu in the afternoon. Now i understand why fellow yelpers rave about this place. Besides being very nice and patient, Dr Hsu explained the difficulties of my situation to me (two root canals done a few years back, but now with not much tooth structure left, and I need invisilign to correct the front teeth crowding). For the first time after seeing many other dentists, Dr Hsu said I didn’t need to get my root canaled teeth pulled out (my regular dentist suggested and insisted so) to do the invisilign and explained why it might be better to leave them there as long as there’s no infection. Also for the first time, a dentist is saying something I always felt true “there’s no infection in the root canal”, since it hasn’t bothered me in the past 9 years, while my other dentists have claimed that there’s an infection based on the denser appearance of the bone from the X-ray. Moreover, after suggesting I do a temporary crown in order to get the braces done, he Recommended and Referred me to another dentist, the best orthodontist he knows, a professor at Harvard School of Dental Medicine, to double check the root canal for me. He made sure his assistant sent my x-rays to the orthodontist he referrred to and instructed me on things to prepare before seeing that dentist. It was a truly professional experience. I highly recommend Dr. Hsu.

When looking for a new dentist (I moved 2 years ago and have been putting it off until now) I really felt like it was suspicious to see so many 5 star reviews for a dentist. I read through them and decided to give it a shot. Let me tell you, this is the real deal. This place is super patient-focused and is all about making you feel comfortable. That’s a big deal especially in a place that so many people feel very stressed and uncomfortable. The staff is personable and helpful. The hygienist was very gentle during my xrays and the cleaning but my teeth still feel super clean. She put a little vaseline on my lips so they didnt get irritated by her gloves and they give you a little hot towel at the end too. I know those don’t seem like a big deal but the little touches really make you feel more comfortable. The hygienist did a great job answering my questions and giving me little tips about how to improve my dental health. Dr. Hsu came in to check on everything and was also very friendly and helpful. I love that they really explain what they’re doing and don’t make you feel rushed. I can’t recommend them enough.

Best experience that I have had with a dentist in a long time –Dr. Hsu took the time to answer my questions, he didn’t pressure me to perform unnecessary procedures, and most importantly he did an excellent job completing my filling. I am very impressed with his work, his office atmosphere, and the friendly and helpful staff. I would highly recommend him…

Lau W. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Typically I would say it’s difficult to rave about a trip to the dentist but Dr. Hsu and his staff make it quite easy. He has a great bed side manner and is incredibly educated. He takes the time to explain things so that you understand and alleviates any anxieties before you leave his office. His front desk staff and hygienists are equally as wonderful. Thank you Dr. Hsu & team!

Anna Rothenberg (Source: Google)


I was recommended to Suffolk Dental by a coworker and honestly loved my experience! My hygienist Jalila was very thorough and Dr. Hsu addressed all of my concerns, giving not only advice for dental health but also advice to improve general health and wellbeing! I will definitely continue care here, and highly recommend the group!

I’ve been a patient at Suffolk Dental for over ten years now. Super convenient location right near the Park Street T. I also really appreciate the Saturday hours. When I worked outside the city and lived downtown, this was one of the only dentists I could find that had Saturday hours at all. Would highly recommend!

Ryan D. from North Andover, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’m a college student who switched from my pediatric dentist to Suffolk Dental, and they’re as good as it gets. They were easily able to debunk all the weird pains I had in my mouth for the past 9 months, and were incredibly informative in showing me what to do to better my dental hygiene. Setting up an appointment was easy, the staff was all kind and respectful, and the location is awesome. Highly recommend!

Leanna O. from Everett, MA (Source: Yelp)


If you’ve been avoiding the dentist because you’re afraid it’ll hurt or that you’ll be hit with bad news this is THE BEST place to settle all your fears and anxieties. In summary, this is the cleanest, friendliest, most professional, caring Dentists. I’ve been avoiding going to the dentist for years. Almost 8 years to be exact. I was so scared of hearing the worst news and needing a lot of work done. Dr. Hsu and everyone in the office is so patient, kind, and supportive. Dr. Hsu is passionate about helping people feel confident about their teeth and it shows. He takes the time to describe what he’s looking for, what work may need to be done, and how to get to a good place with your teeth. He’s so gentle that I barely felt a thing during my cleaning- and I consider myself so sensitive to oral pain. I listened to music in my headphones and barely noticed I was having my teeth cleaned. The office is friendly and the doctors make you feel right at home. Plus you might get a seat with a great view of the State House. I’m so happy with my experience and I’m actually not dreading my next appointment at all. I owe Suffolk Dental Group a big thank you!

Suffolk Dental has earned every single bit of their 5-star rating. I am an executive assistant and sometimes help colleagues set up appointments. I used Yelp to narrow down the selection and then a call was all it took to know that my fellow Yelpers did not lead me astray. Ann was fantastic and extremely accommodating. The colleague I was setting the appointment for was mainly interested in Zoom whitening before his wedding and Ann was able to fit him in on VERY short notice. After his appointment was set, his fiance wanted in on the Zoom action too, and again, Ann went above and beyond to fit her into the schedule as well. This was the first visit for both. They said that everyone at the practice treated them great and did a thorough and fantastic job on the whitening. That appointment took place about a month ago and I just scheduled a follow up visit for my colleague to address an issue that came up during the initial visit. Again, the person that answered the phone (not Ann this time) was very friendly and was just a pleasure to deal with. I live in another state, otherwise I would schedule my own checkup here in a heartbeat!

I had an appointment to have my teeth cleaned. Everybody was very nice and very professional. Every step of safety regarding the COVID-19 was taken from the time you enter in the office until you leave. Nick is really incredible as usual about cleaning my teeth. Every question I had after the cleaning sea answered nicely and professionally.

Even after moving out of the city, we travel to come see Dr. Hsu and the staff at Suffolk dental. They go above and beyond to make sure you feel welcome and comfortable and talk you step by step through what is going on. In the seven years we have been going there I have never had a single thing to complain about.

Ben B. from Cambridge, MA (Source: Yelp)


The amount of food places I review probably gives an indication why the only non-food place I’d review would be a dentist. My teeth and I have a very close relationship. These folks are great. Everyone’s super friendly and super enthusiastic about your teeth. That’s a breed of enthusiasm you don’t find often. It’s definitely not one of my favorite activities to have someone poking my gums with needles, but when they do everything to put you at ease about it, it’s not so bad. I find myself sometimes almost falling asleep while they work, which is definitely counter to every animal instinct. The enthusiasm extends to Dr. Hsu, who is just super stoked to talk about care regimes. He takes the time to answer your questions, give you suggestions and explain everything. People who are excited about their work are nice to be around, and so I enjoy talking to him. Just a great place all around. They need to fix their intercom, though. It’s been just raw blasts of static for years now.

Rachel B. from Rochester, NY (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Suffolk for two years and I figured after I almost fell asleep getting my teeth cleaned (they are that gentle) it was time to finally leave a review. Everyone in there is friendly and the women who run the front desk area are amazing and will go out of their way to answer your call after hours if you’ve had surgery. My hygienist uses a high-powered water scraper instead of a metal scraper on my teeth which means no bleeding gums or swelling. The lead Dentist also takes a more holistic approach instead of recommending excess procedures which is refreshing. The entrance of the building isn’t an ideal spot as there’s a lot of riffraff in the area but don’t let that deter you. I recommend them to everyone who is looking for a dentist.

Boston B. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Jalila is the most amazing hygienist on the planet. I have only seen her so I can’t speak for the rest of the team but she takes such amazing care of her patients and is so sweet and endearing. I haven’t been to the dentist in over 10 years. She didn’t judge me she was happy to have me in her chair and I am beyond thankful I found Suffolk Dental and Jalila!

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


I cheated on this dental office and went to another dentist office as I no longer pay for dental insurance and wanted to see what else was out there. I regret my decision, not because the other place wasn’t good, but this place is so much better! This is honestly the best dentist office I’ve ever been to and who raves about dentists? Seriously though I will never go to another dentist office. They are very kind, informative, gentle, and go above and beyond. Highly recommend this place!

Catherine Choi (Source: Google)


Two thumbs up for Suffolk Dental! Dr. Hsu and Nick were wonderfully professional, thorough, and knowledgeable throughout my first dental visit at the practice. Dr. Hsu gave some excellent advice and tips about breathing, sleep patterns, and oral hygiene and never appeared rushed during the visit. He truly seems to care about his patients. I would highly recommend this team to all my family and friends!

I have been going to Suffolk dental for 15 years. I tell anyone who is looking for a dentist about SD. The staff is friendly, kind, consistent. The hygienists are excellent. Dr. Hsu is so calming and gentle. Going to the Dentist used to cause me such stress but since going to SD, I never feel that way! Thank you for the excellent care!

Kelsey K. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Let me just start off by saying that I hate the dentist. I hate people’s hands in my mouth, I hate foreign dental utensils in my mouth, I hate being chastised for not flossing, I hate responding to questions when my mouth being held open; there’s essentially nothing enjoyable about the experience. In fact, I put off going to the dentist for 5 years (I’m sorry if that’s gross, but that’s how much I hate the dentist). Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I have to say that Suffolk Dental Group creates the most pleasant experience possible for going to the dentist. The office is clean and they open a brand new set of dental tools in front of you. On my fist visit, the dental hygienist put my fears at ease and she actual explained to me her process. In fact, all of the staff is knowledgeable and review your x-rays with you so you actually get a sense of what’s going on instead of being reprimanded for not using mouth wash every morning. Dr. Hsu is great, and makes sure to check in with every patient at the end of their cleanings. He’s also not out to just get your money; I ended up with 2 cavities (cuz that’s what happens when you don’t go to the dentist for 5 years) and he advised that only one needed the actual filling. I will absolutely continue to come here and recommend this to anyone looking for a great dentist.

Anna R. from Medford, MA (Source: Yelp)


I think everyone agrees Dr. Hsu is a superstar dentist. I have complete trust in Dr. Hsu, I always had issues with my teeth (myself and genes to blame) but Dr. Hsu and his staff assures me each time I visit that everything is in check. Everyone takes time to explain the procedure/process/ or even just the importance of oral health. People always picture dentists as someone who invents more problems to get more money out of you but let me tell you, Dr. Hsu stops me from making unnecessary and expensive procedures (like whitening) and embrace my natural teeth as long as they are healthy. Get that. :)) All his hygienists are top-notch as well and have really gentle hands. I went to a different dentist one time because I switched jobs and this location became inconvenient for me and after one visit to that dentist (I cried in pain during a routine cleaning), I came running back to Suffolk. 🙂

Clo X. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Professional and friendly dentist and staff. I’ve been seeing Dr. Hsu and his hygienists for a few years now and now my family (husband and 2 kids) get/will get dental care here as well. Almost forgot – convenient location (Park street T stop) and scheduling flexibility (Saturday appts) guarantee I’ll never look elsewhere.

Lexi Klym (Source: Google)


This place is one of a kind! I’ve never been to a holistic dentist before or even knew that they existed! Dr. Hsu thinks about all things that can be impacting the oral microbiome in one’s life and addresses them. He helped me with my breathing, acid reflux, and insomnia. He has an MPH and gets the whole picture and treats each patient as an individual. Every experience there is a good one from the check-in to the cleaning. I also love my hygienist because she gives me very specific and actionable tips on how to brush, floss and when to drink water, and I use them every day!

Sasha M. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve only wrote yelp reviews for restaurants & bars here, but this place definitely deserves a good yelp review…scratch that, the BEST yelp review. I’m terrified of going to the dentists and get super nervous when I’m in a dental office but I had a dental emergency so I needed to be seen right away and they were able to squeeze me in for the same day. (I ended up having an infection where my wisdom tooth was growing in so I looked like a chipmunk and needed medical attention right away) When I got there, I was nervous but Ann, the practice manager, greeted me with a smile and explained to me what was going on and had me fill out new patient forms. I noticed it was pretty busy so I was grateful that the Dr. agreed to see me. I waited for a little while, which I didn’t mind about because of the fact they were seeing me with such short notice. When I was seen by Dr. Hsu, he was so gentle and so friendly, he made me feel at ease and not so nervous anymore. He prescribed me antibiotics and pain killers for the infection, and gave me referrals to oral surgeons to book an appointment. He explained everything to me in an easy manner so I can understand and also not freak out. I like this place and will definitely make it my go to dentist because everyone is so nice. Even if it seems hectic, they don’t rush you…they actually sit and talk to you and help you out with whatever’s bothering you. They seem so genuine, I’m happy I chose this place to go to for my dental emergency and will def. be coming back in the future!
