I am not a fan of the dentist because of prior bad experiences but I absolutely LOVE this place! On my first visit, they gave me a tour! I’ve never been given a tour of a facility before and while I never considered it, it DOES matter. The staff is friendly and welcoming. They provide great service, easy to get in contact with AND they send you reminders of your appointments. The Dental Hygenist at the Pines Office, Claudia, is AMAZING!!!! She educates you on whats going on in your mouth and keeps you informed as shes servicing you. Definitely a great place to be!!

The Dr was friendly, thorough and made me feel at ease. It’s obvious that he’s an expert in his field and I felt I was in good hands. The office and staff is also knowledgable, professional and welcoming. Other doctor’s offices could learn a thing or two from them!

Normally hate making the dreadful trip to the dentist, but not this time. I went in for my monthly check up and was greeted by one of the lovely staff members, Sarai. Welcomed with a smile and kindness she informed me that I was right on time and that my doctor, Claudia would shortly be with me. My deep cleaning went as planned, Claudia took her time and was very informative throughout. I now look forward to my monthly appointments thanks to this delightful staff.

Abigail, Veronica, & Dr. Mars were absolutely wonderful from start to finish. Abigail was professional, gave me a tour of the clinic, and was so kind. Veronica gave the best cleaning I’ve ever received. The clinic is very clean and they are using the highest standards for safety. I am very impressed.

Raquel S. from Opa-locka, FL (Source: Yelp)


I love Claudia, she always takes good care of me and informs me of what I need to do to better take care of my teeth.  She doesn’t treat me like a child as other hygienist have done in the past.  I’ve been going to her for a year and will continue for ever.  The office personnel is, also, very sweet and personable.  I love to be treated like family.  Thanks Dental Care Group for bringing my trust back to dentistry.

Karen C. from Hollywood, FL (Source: Yelp)


Everyone is very professional and friendly.  Dr. Mars and Dr. Fien explained everything I needed and the cost.  Dental procedures are expensive, but I had a dentist and periodontist that I thought were good (recommended by very good friends) and they did not help my situation. Claudia who is my hygienist is great.  I would recommend this office to everyone.

This dental group is one of a kind. From the time I walked in to the time I left the staff was professional, friendly, and nice. The facility is spotless they make you feel like a person not just another patient.They are sanitary,always checking on how you feel and explain what they are doing each step of the way. I’ve had nothing but a great experience

It’s a Saturday and I’m having horrible pain from one of my molars. Couldn’t eat barely sleep the night before. Never been to the office called them up and they went above and beyond to help me. Got me in and the staff were very kind and professional. They did take ever precautionary measure to insure their patients and staff were protected. I felt comfortable and well taken care of.

My experience at Dental Care Group at Pembroke Pines was outstanding. The inviting and modern design complemented by happy pastel colors was topped off by the happy and professional team. Vanessa the assistant walked me in to the room and have me set in the chair. Everything looked very clean and brand new. Claudia the hygienist came in with a huge smile on her face complementing the color selection of my attire and I felt like a friend is helping me. She was on top of her game. Rick the dentist made very good impression on me. Claudia and Rick explained the status of my teeth and all necessary procedures needed to be done to not only have better and nicer looking teeth than a movie star, but what could be the consequences to my overall health if I skip one or two steps. Jessica the office manager was super nice and good partner for my Hungarian negotiation techniques. We made a good deal 🙂

Marian M. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


Most of these reviews are about mostly people with few reviews and I assumed from people who are upset because of the high cost everywhere for dental services. This is my first time here that I brought my son who recently moved to the area. One of their dentist was recommended by another dentist. We come from a solo practice and this is a big practice but I was always asked about the possible service provided.

The staff here are amazing! Super friendly and make you feel very comfortable. Dr. Pagani & Dr. Mars are awesome. I just got my wisdom teeth pulled with Dr. Morell and he was phenomenal! Surgery didn’t take long and the pain level has been very minimal. Would definitely recommend this dental company to anyone.

Man, what a great experience it was. This has to be the first time I have ever gone to a dental office and I was given a gift. I love the atmosphere and vibe that I got from this office. I was being treated by Dr. Mars and the Hygienist Irina. And I must say, I loved how honest they were about on what I need to to do to improve my oral health. I am so glad, I came here. And I can’t wait to come back again. Thank you everyone at the Dental Care Group. You guys rocked!

I really love this dental office. I been a patient of Dr. Mars for six years and I think he is greatest. He has ALWAYS worked with me to ensure that I received the best dental care ever. I really appreciate Marlene for working with me and instilling the confidence that everything will work out at right time. I also appreciate Cheryl for staying on top of me to ensure my cleaning are complete every six months. For your dental needs, I think you should give Dental Health Group a try. You will be glad that you did!!!!

It was my first time here and it was an amazing experience my cousin Jenny recommend this location to me. I met with April the hygienist and as she cleaned/checked my mouth she explained what each instrument was and what it does. She was very thorough with all the information I received and gave me an expectation on what the visit was consisting of. I also met with Dr. Mars and he was super outgoing made me laugh the moment he walked it. He made the environment very relaxing and comfortable. I love coming to the dentist and now thanks to April and Dr. Mars it’s my favorite thing to do. ❤️

Dr. Rick Mars and his staff are the absolute best. I highly recommend him and his team for all your dental needs. One year later and my teeth are straight as can be. I can’t thank him and his team enough for the support and expertise. Thank you Dr. Mars. You are truly the best!

The Dental Care Group has been taking care of my dental needs for over 20 years. They are friendly, efficient and highly professional. Dr.Mars is an amazing dentist, he is gentle, very knowledgeable, experienced and talented.

DCG in Pembroke Pines is top of the line for me. Apart from the staff being beyond amazing all around, the service to their patients is priceless. Whether it’s a simple cleaning to an invasive procedure, they make you feel at ease and not just a “deli number” to speed up the process. I too, work for a medical office (high risk pregnancies) and know how the MO goes. It’s nice to know they function with their heart and compassion versus the clock——Jr

I was lucky enough to find the Dental Care Group through ZocDoc when i relocated from Connecticut and Dr. Mars (and Dr. Winer!) are absolutely the best. In fact, the entire team from the receptionists to the dental technicians, etc. make going to the dentist (who wants to do that??) a welcome experience. I’ve experienced some unfortunate dental problems over the last couple years – which has required many extra trips to the dentist. If you hate the dentist, go see Dr. Mars!!! Take it from me. He and his practice will change the way you feel about those semi-annual teeth cleanings!

Dannitra D. from Hollywood, FL (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient here for the last year and a half. From the day I stepped into the office, I have received nothing but white glove service. Sarai, Lana, and Claudia are all gems! Dr. Pagani has such a gentle touch, it makes getting a filling bearable. Dr. Mars is excellent! You won’t be disappointed! I’m a patient for life!

Willie G. from Pembroke Pines, FL (Source: Yelp)


there are so many amazing things to say about this, they’re not your typical dull dentist. From the first day of walking in they were attentive to my well being and care. The front office staff is beyond unforgettable. Sarai, Lana and Carol always greets you with a smile and they know your name. lets not forget about the amazing Claudia, “THE” hygienist she always on top of me with my care and her beautiful smile. So look no father this one stop shop is the best “10 Stars!!

I went in for a dental cleaning with Solange who was extremely helpful on how I should take care of my dental hygiene. So happy with how clean my teeth/mouth is and how my gums aren’t inflamed anymore from the cleaning! I also went in for cavity fillings with Dr. Kellesarian and Aasha who assisted him during the procedure. Not going to lie, I was freaking out when my gums became numb but they were both extremely patient with me and understood. They asked if I wanted to rinse my mouth and let me sit up until I was ready to lay down again! Everyone was professional, patient, and treated me like family!

I’ve been seeing Veronica (dental hygienist) for about two (2) years now and have never been so pleased or impressed with the quality of care that I’ve received. Not only is she exceptional in terms of professional aptitude and overall skillset, but also in terms of her approach and an undeniable level of knowledge & the experience she brings. If you’re looking for someone in the industry that will go above and beyond for you; ceaselessly remaining attentive, devoted to your overall wellbeing and provides a personalized approach to patient treatment and (L-T) care, look no further than Veronica.

Flores A. from Hollywood, FL (Source: Yelp)


The whole invisalign experience from start to finish was unbelievable! Dr. Mars and his staff are more than professional, they treat you like family. It was such a pleasure dealing with Sarai at the front desk…she knows your name from day one and is on top of any and all appointments you might have. I almost never had to even think about any upcoming visit dates and times due to her superb customer service. It was so satisfying to gradually see the change in my smile and even though I was an “extreme case”, the end result was amazing! Nothing but gratitude and praise to the talented Dr. Mars, his staff and the facility as a whole. I’m glad I decided to do this and even more happy I chose the Dental Care Group. My wife is especially happy to see my perfect smile!

Angie L. from Hollywood, FL (Source: Yelp)


If you’re looking for a great dentist in the pembroke pines area, Dr. Mars is your best choice. Our family has been going to him for over 10 years and we’ve always received the most professional and high quality service. Besides being a great dentist you can trust, Dr. Glicksman  is also a great guy with a good sense of humor So whether it’s my husband, our son, or me, everyone enjoys his visit to the dentist. I would highly recommend Dr. Mars to anyone!”

Michelle L. from Pembroke Pines, FL (Source: Yelp)


I was so impressed with the amount of care and comfort that I received from the practice. I was so scared and nervous and filled with anxiety! However, the moment I waked in, I felt like I was with family. They explained everything to me and assured me that I was in the best care. They also helped entertain my eight month old so that I can focus on what was going on. He was happy and loved all of the wonderful staff! The financial department helped ease my worries as well and explain things to me over and over and over again! All in all, I would recommend this practice to anyone and everyone! I will also be bringing my children to get their dentistry care!

Kalvin K. from Orlando, FL (Source: Yelp)


I came across the Dental Care Group with the advice from my coworker. He went to the Aventura location, but since the Pembroke Pines location is closer to me, I visited there. During my first visit, I was immediately greeted by both my hygienist (Claudia) and dentist (Dr. Mars), both of whom were very friendly and professional. I normally visit on my lunch hour from work and their office staff and dental team are very accommodating to this fact. In fact, they call me before my appointment (day of) to let me know how they are running (behind or on time). I would recommend coming here to anyone. I have not had any up-selling experience here.

Hi, My name is Barbara S. and I have been a patient at the Dental Care Group, with Dr Mars, for about 20 years. I’m a retired educator who wears many hats–real estate referral agent, substitute teacher, hospital volunteer, actor, and grandmother. I’m called the “happy lady” so it’s important to me that my teeth look good. As I approach this new milestone of completing my Invisalign treatment, I am extremely satisfied with the process and outcome. Procrastination was a factor for years because I thought Invisalign at my age (65) would be a waste of time and money. Ironically, when I started my last set, casting call for commercials increased. Now, when the camera person asked for that big smile, I gladly show all 28 beautiful teeth. Hats off to my dentist, Dr Mars, for his expert skills, professionalism, caring heart, and contagious sense of humor. When it comes to giving back to the community, Dr. Mars should receive the Humanitarian Award for opening his heart and providing his professional services to the public. The deco style waiting room, with the added computer, is warm and inviting. The entire staff has always maintained exceptional professional ethics. It is true that the company’s success is, also, determined by the staff that customers initially encounter. All of the office staff exemplifies that pleasant and helpful spirit and is an asset to the Dental Care Group. Special thanks to my special team of helpers, Valrie, April, Anel and Marlene who always made me feel so special. Thanks, again to Dr Mars and the staff at The Dental Care Group. Much love.

This is by far the best dentist I’ve been to in my life. This place makes you feel at home. From the moment I walked in the door I felt at ease I knew I was in good hands. Solange my hygienist she’s absolutely the BEST. I’ll recommend her anyday to clean your teeth and etc. Special thanks to Abby and Dr.K. See you guys soon.

Bonnie is one of the best dental hygienists I’ve had, she is knowledgable and explains everything very clearly. Dr. Mars has a great sense of humor and is on the Invisalign Board – if you’ve been thinking of doing Invisalign, this is the place to do it. They make paying for it very attainable. Thanks to Dr. Mars and The Dental Care Group I will have the straight teeth I’ve been wanting in less than 6 months!

I’ve been a patient now for 3 years and highly recommend the entire team at Dental Care Group. I had a few big procedures (extractions, implants, crown) and the team has been great through the whole process. Not often you can say that you enjoy going to the dentist, but I really do enjoy seeing the them all! Adding an update on 10/1/20. Just went yesterday for cleaning and other procedure. First time since COVID. The precautions and procedures that the office are using are amazing. I felt completely safe and comfortable. Thank you for the concern you show your patients!

I moved to Florida about 2 years back from CT and more or less blindly found a dentist within my health insurance network. I have to say luck was on my side because I hit the jackpot. Between the office staff, Dr. Mars, his assistants, and Dr. Winer – I am beyond satisfied with the care and concern I’ve received at each and every visit. This group is excellent. Their bedside manner is on point and as hard as this may be to believe, a visit to this office could actually be considered fun. I’ve never been a fan of the dentist. These guys have changed my outlook completely. Blessed to have found them!! Thanks so much for the ongoing care and consistency!!
