I have been a patient of Dr. Beal since 1992 and he is by far the best dentist I have ever had.  He explains everything thoroughly and is very kind and friendly.  His staff are also wonderful, very flexible when the need arises to change appointments and for those of us who work full time during the week, there are early morning, late afternoon and Saturday appointments available.  The office is located on beautiful Newbury Street and inside is lovely; lots of bricks, plants and personality.  Helps if you enjoy classical music, which I do!!!  Visit Dr. Beal & Associates if you need a new dentist!!

Mark Beale has been my dentist for over a dozen years (he is also dentist for two adult daughters). Dr.Beale and his staff have taken excellent care of my teeth — and in the process helped repair damage left over from earlier dentistry. The team is very competent in both preventative and restorative work. And to top it off they are extremely pleasant to deal with. I would recommend them without hesitation.

A great customer service! The team always greets you very friendly. Very professional environment! Cleaning, treatments and consultations always go very nice and pleasant. Love the location as well – street parking is available and it’s 1 minute by foot from T stop. 5 stars

Dr. Beal is a very kind dentist. When the crown on my front tooth came off, I was referred to him by another of his patients. His very friendly and accommodating administrative staff fit me in for my emergency, and he took care of me the same day. Knowing that I would need a lot of work from a car accident and neglect I had been putting off going to the dentist. Dr. Beal immediately made me feel comfortable and that over time I could return my mouth to good health. We are half through my treatment, and I can’t recommend him enough.

I’ve been going here for around 3 years, the big draw is that they’re open on Saturdays and that works with my 9-5 schedule so I won’t have to take time off work. They gave me a great recommendation when I needed a root canal and then finished by installing a crown on my tooth. Very friendly and courteous staff, I couldn’t recommend them more. Also it’s not my cup of tea to go shopping nearby but it is located on Newbury St so if you want to go shopping before/after everything you could want is right there.

Elena S. from Wayland, MA (Source: Yelp)


We have been patients of Dr.Beal for over 10 years. Cannot say enough of good things about him. Best dentist, great person. For the office in general – receptionist and office admin are doing a good job. Yes, there is usually a wait of 15 to 30 minutes, but I believe it is due to Doctor’s attention to details and desire to do a perfect job (I spent more then scheduled time in the chair on several occasions, and result was flawless!). So, if you are looking for quick in and out visit – maybe this is not a place for you. If you are looking for a lasting quality – then you are in the right place. PS. Never been treated by Dr.Chu – so have no opinion on her service.

R S. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I love this dentist!! His office is in a great location right off Newbury Street. All of his staff are friendly and really make you comfortable. He has no problems answering questions about dental care. Best of all, he’s not anxious to sign you up for dental work you don’t need. He told me about a couple of things I could do in my mouth but let me know that they could all wait. I’m skipping the cheaper dental HMO option next year so I can continue to see him.

I met Dr. Mark Beal years ago. He was just starting his practice, and did all the cleaning himself. He fixed a tooth — a front one — which to this day he keeps an eye on. Today? He’s gathered up an incredible team of hygienists, support staff, and a host of others. Yet he’s still the same guy who keeps an eye on my teeth. He’s the best, and so is is his staff.

I have been going to this dental office for many years now (close to 10 years). When I come through the door, it feels like I am visiting friends. Everyone is very pleasant and I trust the care Dr Beal and his team provide. I love their new system that provides text reminders for appointments and allows me to text back when I need to make changes or ask for information. I have moved to the suburbs 4 years ago (and don’t work nearby either) but I still go to the same office, which I believe says it all.

David S. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Exceptional service! My tooth broke and Dr Beal fit me in a few hours later by staying late. He did great work to provide a temporary tooth. Then he called a few hours later in the evening to check up on his patient. I’ve never seen such great service! He also is an expert dentist. All together a remarkable experience. Highly recommended.

Zay S. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I don’t think I have enough good things to say about this practice and specifically Alana and Dr. Beal. This was my first dental cleaning in Boston and I came in with very high expectations. All of these were met…and then some! Alana was my hygienist. She’s smart, thorough and I felt so very comfortable. It was such an educating experience and more than that I never once felt pressured time or money wise. Dr. Beal has excellent bedside manner and took the time to go over my questions along with giving great advice medically. I only wish more dental practices were like this one. Fantastic team.

This place has completely changed the way I view going to the dentist. Admittedly, I avoided the dentist for many years due to some rather unpleasant experiences. I found Mark Beal and Associates through google and found that they accepted my insurance so I decided to give them a shot. I’m so glad I did! Alanna made me feel very comfortable right off the bat. She’s very sweet and has a great sense of humor. She’s very knowledgeable and always informs you of what she’s doing (and what you should be doing too). My dentist, Dr Balaban, is probably one of the coolest doctors around. Very down to earth, honest and super informative. Not to mention, my teeth look better than ever! The office staff is great too. Scheduling is convenient and they are very good at it, so it’s rare that you even have to wait to be seen. All in all, very happy I found this place!

Michael D. from Somerville, MA (Source: Yelp)


This place is fantastic! I have been coming here for five years and I always get top notch service. Alana and Katie are both fantastic hygienist’s. Everyone is very laid back and kind. Dr. Beal does fantastic work. He may take longer than most Dentists, but he is thorough. He does a job once and does it right. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my dental care.

Lisa O. from Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Beal was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! He didn’t do much work, but that’s one of the reasons he was fantastic! Instead of jumping right in to do a ton of expensive work, he took a great deal of time and care to hypothesis test and see what was REALLY going on with my teeth. He also explained everything from a medical perspective (from what he was seeing on the x-rays and why, to what he was doing and why, to even what the chemicals were that were being place don my teeth and how they work), which I find is unusually rare with dentists.  I have a lot of anxiety about dental appointments and he made me feel better than any other dentist has. I will be back for sure!

Sandra S. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’m not sure how you could have a bad experience here. Sure, it’s a dentist. But Dr. Beal and especially the hygienist Alana are so sweet and kind and – most importantly – do an amazing job cleaning without causing pain. Really what more do you want? Like absolutely any other doctors office (or plane flight, or dinner reservation), the later in the day your appointment is, the more likely it is that the doctor is running late and you’ll have to wait a little. It’s worth it to have a great dentist.

Emily C. from Brookline, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Beal is skilled, considerate and compassionate. Amy, the receptionist, is an absolute doll. And my hygienist could not be more efficient, thorough and sweet. I would recommend Dr. Beal to anyone. He’s done some pretty extensive crown work for me and the results have been perfect. He’s also had to refer me to an endodontist (Dr. Nasseh) for a root canal, and my visit there was exactly the same–a great experience with every single person I encountered, from the receptionist to Dr. Nasseh himself.

Tim S. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Beal replaced a crown which i am extremely pleased with. It took a little longer than anticipated but was well worth the extra time. He provided photos to show the progress of the dental work which i found very helpful. He explained everything so i would understand how a crown works. He made the new crown much more appealing that the previous dentist did. I am very happy with the work

Having seen far too many dentists who performed sub-par work on my teeth, I was thrilled to be referred to Dr. Beal & Associates by a friend. The dentists here are perfectionists, and do everything they can to save a tooth structure, rather than immediately resort to a root canal, implant or removal. I’ve even experienced their staying beyond regular business hours in order to complete a necessary procedure. Just terrific!

Anna Babayan (Source: Google)


Dr. Beal is what I call they don’t make them like this anymore. He is an artist. He respects his craft, he loves his craft and he respects his patients. I have been seeing dr Beal for over 8 years and he is so honest, careful and has the best work ethics. Never after money, always after whatever is right for your teeth health! True doctor. Office is a bit chaotic, they always make some mistakes. I definitely go there for Dr. Beal’s expertise, experience and I trust him with my dental health!

Steve M. from Waltham, MA (Source: Yelp)


I have been lucky enough to have had Dr. Beal as my dentist for the last 20 years. He is the sun in my medical solar system. I love him. He’s the sweetest, and smartest guy in the city. Really. I only wish I could spend more time in the chair getting my teeth worked on (we’ve been through cavities, crowns and even an implant). Go just for the comfort, music and laughs, if nothing else. He’s an artist. -and the staff is a reflection of him. Superb. – Steve M.

Joe K. from Allston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr Beal for years now. Not to knock the care that I’d had in the past, but he’s the first dentist I’ve had that really made me feel comfortable, relaxed, and personally cared for. He’s fantastic. Recently, I saw Dr Ly for a couple of appointments, and she has unbelievably met the high bar set by Dr Beal. Very kind and friendly, unrushed, and I again felt comfortable, relaxed, and personally cared for. As another reviewer noted, she’s got a very good, soft touch delivering numbing needles. Honestly, I can’t say for certain that I had gotten a needle, but as I had two fillings done and wasn’t in pain I must presume that she was just that good on both occasions. The friendly atmosphere doesn’t stop at Drs Beal and Ly, however. Everyone across the board is wonderful and always has been since I started seeing Dr Beal in the mid-90s. You can’t go wrong with Dr Beal & Associates. The only way I will stop seeing them is if I move too far away. Even then I might try to find a way!

E T. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Beal & Associates are top notch. From the administrative staff to the clinicians, they are all professional, courteous and helpful. My husband and I returned to their office after both of us had a bad experience at a local dental school. We are happy to be back, knowing that we are being taken care of well. Thank you!

Laszlo Gardony (Source: Google)


Dr. Beal is an amazing dentist. I have been his patient for about 30 years now. His dental work is always impeccable, extremely durable, and the treatments are practically painless. He is a genuinely caring, dedicated dentist and a very intelligent, kind man. He always creates a pleasant atmosphere during my visits and has proven highly trustworthy in his diagnosis and treatment plan suggestions. Highly recommended.

I never thought I’d say I’d love a dental office, but I’m extremely happy I found this practice. The staff is super positive and helpful, transparent in their procedures, and are upfront about billing questions. I definitely appreciate the effort and attention they give me every appointment, and have recommended this office to multiple coworkers & friends.

Matt D. from Dunmore, PA (Source: Yelp)


I am in Boston for work and broke a tooth this morning.Being in pain and 300 miles from home I called the front desk at my hotel who told me to try Dr. Beals office. I called and a wonderful woman named Aimee answered who listened to my problem and asked where i was, I told her and she said”Good get a cab and you will be seen in a 1/2 hour” I did as I was told. 37 mins. later i was in a chair where this “Angel” Dr. Chu was fixing all my dental woe’s.They fixed Me up,sent me to the Walgreens and even called back later to check on Me. I don’t live here and they treated Me this nice, Wow if you live in Boston this should be your Dentist. Thank You all esp. Dr. Chu.

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


How did I not review this place already? I’ve been coming here on and off for years (depending on where I work, sometimes it’s just easier to get a cleaning near my office), but I always get top notch service from start to finish. No attitude at the reception. No condescending attitude from the hygienists or dentists. Just high quality, great service. I’ve seen multiple dentists here through the years, including Dr. Beal, who I think is retiring though now. But the other dentists were great so I’ll still come here for sure.

Emily L. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


All of the doctors, hygienists, and office personnel are beyond amazing here.  They are great with people who are not thrilled/anxious about the dentist (like me), and they do everything in their power to make you comfortable.  Cleanings are a breeze and very thorough, and any other restorative or cosmetic work is very, very carefully done – they don’t let you leave unless everything is perfect.  They’re the best!

Cindy L. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Beal and Dr. Ly are both incredible. I just switched over to this dental office two months ago from my dentist in California after coming to Boston, and I had a series of fairly urgent fillings done. I’ve seen Dr. Beal and Dr. Ly each 3-4 times and they are always very efficient and professional. I also LOVE that they really take care in polishing the teeth properly afterwards so it feels smooth and exactly like my real teeth. Also side note, they have THE MOST comfortable dental chairs.

Merry Melody (Source: Google)


Dr. Beal did a total restoration of more of my teeth than I can count and I didn’t feel a thing! — including filling removal, core build up, posts and beautiful crowns. You can’t do better than Dr. Beal and his amazing hygienist Katie, his top-notch assistant, Bruno and friendly patient coordinator, Ariana . I owe them all many thanks.

I was referred to this practice after a terrible previous experience, where they not only physically injured me, but also threatened to sue me if I left a negative review online. My experience with Mark C Beal’s practice has been the exact opposite , and I am happy to have the chance to leave a glowing review. I was treated with kindness, courtesy and the staff helped me solve my dental issues quickly, painlessly and with no drama. I am happy I found them and will stay with them.

Lisa D. from Newton, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Beal has been my dentist for about 30 years.  Back in the 1980’S when the AIDS virus condition was hardly known and unstoppable, Dr. Beal knowingly suited up to examine and work on my 20 year old cousin’s teeth–  this is the man he is!   He has been consistently attentive and focused on me whenever I step into his exam chair.  His work is always excellent and there’s never a question of whether he is doing the best for me.  He is one of the most hard working and caring people I have ever met.  You will feel privileged if you are given the opportunity to step up and settle into his exam chair and enjoy the best selection of classical music in the world!

Kate S. from Quincy, MA (Source: Yelp)


The team is very professional! Office is very clean and plays relaxing classic music. Any questions I have during appointment are answered and clarified in a professional manner. They always take a good care of you that makes you feel appreciated as a client. My treatments always go smooth, painless and relaxing. Location works great because you can either park on street or take train.

Matt R. from Waltham, MA (Source: Yelp)


I am a patient of Dr. El-Hadidi, an Oral Surgeon, around the corner from Dr. Beal. Dr El-Hadidi recommended Dr. Beals’ office based on my insurance coverage (MED TAC). I have a new implant and need a dentist to take over where the surgeon stops. First off, booking; Dr. Beals office has been very thorough about my appointments. In my experience Dr. Beal or Alana the Hygienist will mark off a time in their personal schedules via PC at their stations and on your way out you will get confirmation in writing, email and snail mail. Solid and professional. Thank you. The Hygienist Alana does excellent work. I have somewhat sensitive teeth and while there is a slight tingle I must say that I credit her attention to detail and dexterity to my comfort and rapid recovery after implant surgery. I am a smoker and was told there was a 33% chance of the implant being rejected. One Month out and my gums are doing much better. There is a new x-ray machine that is very convenient. No more cardboard film trays. Digital x-rays right from the seat. No more waiting for film and then a reshoot, all in real time. Have not had to deal with billing yet but I will wait and see. I’ve been looking for a top quality Dentist and I have found his office. I’ll update my reviews as I return more and more. UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! Dr. Beal and his team are incredible. They provide comprehensive service, outstanding care and extremely accurate foresight when it comes to dentistry and oral health. I see some reviewers have made negative complaints about the timeliness of the appointments and I must ask, Do you want to be treated like a fast food customer? Dentistry done well should be done with accuracy and this takes careful consideration. Gentle Dental will get you in and out in no time and you will suffer the consequences down the road. Dr Beal is the maestro of dentistry and his team from the front desk to the back hygienists to the billing department and so on are an orchestra in perfect synch. Bravo PS, they are so good I went to an appointment on the morning of my birthday as a gift to myself. It’s a pleasure to be treated there.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Beal and several of his associates in the practice for years now. I originally started going there because they were close to my work, but they are all super nice and super professional. I don’t exactly look forward to going to the dentist, but I know I’m in good hands when I do go.

Erica F. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a loyal patient of Dr. Beal’s for over 10 years. We’ve been through thick and thin together – multiple crowns, replacing old fillings, cracked teeth, you name it. And he lets me choose the music when I’ve got a long procedure going on. He even doled out advice over the phone once during a hurricane on a Sunday when we were all supposed to “shelter in place” and my temporary crown had shattered. Everyone at the practice is great to deal with. Alana is a particularly awesome hygienist. Please, never retire, Dr. Beal.
