The office is very spacious; clean and well maintained. They have just renovated/expanded their facility and seating areas. The staff, hygienist and Dr. Amato are very friendly and courteous group. All questions were answered and I did not feel stress while my procedure was taking place. This is an excellent practice to be a part of.

I have an extreme dental fear/anxiety. Dr.Amato and his staff have been the only ones to give me a new outlook on dentistry and each visit they have made sure I am comfortable. I actually don't dread going there even though I need a lot of work. The office is extremely clean and I am so happy I decided after years of neglect because of fear I decided to take care of my gums first with Dr.AMATO and wasn't judged and made to feel like I didn't take care of my self like other dentists had.
