Dr Pete worked some magic about three years ago so that I didn't have to have a root canal. My tooth was fine but finally it was bothering me again and I had to have a root canal. I was hesitant, as I'd heard nightmares about root canals. It was virtually painless -- and very fast. Plus .. I can't tell the crown from my real teeth, it's so natural looking. The staff at this office are all about service -- professional, friendly and caring.

I came to Dr. Pagano in the fall of '07 at the suggestion of my dear friend. My previous dentist said "There is nothing you can do to save your teeth." I have had cavities and decay my entire life; which resulted in a mouth full of those ugly fillings. My mouth had more metal than actual teeth. Dr. Pete and his staff have worked hard to replace my fillings with porcelain, and have used crowns where needed. They have restored my confidence in my smile! I now look like I've never had any work done!!

My experience with Dr. Pagano and his entire staff has been very positive. The first time I called in I had a toothache and had never been to the office before. They made an appointment for me the very next day and it was on a Saturday. I had to get the tooth pulled. Dr. Pagano explained to me that although that tooth had to be extracted that were options for replacement. Dr. Pagano gave me a tooth implant and you can't even tell which tooth was replaced. The procedure took a couple of months but through all the checkups I was always in and out very quickly. I never had a tooth implant before but the whole experience was very professional with great results. I would tell anyone who needs dental work done to visit Dr. Pagano. He respects your time. You are always seen right at your appointment time and you always get a confirmation call ahead of time. Dr. Pagano explains what has to be done in a way everyone can understand. I am a very happy customer and will continue to visit Dr. Pagano for all my dental needs. Angela Scott

I was missing several teeth (lower right side) and had tried partials designed by two different dentists. I came to Pete on recommendation and he fitted me with a unique cantilever bridge. The prosthesis is absolutely marvelous! The new teeth are fitted perfectly and feel like my own natural teeth. Dr. Pete did an expert job!

I've been putting it off for some time now, what I thought would be torture to my mouth. Just walking in a dentist made me extremely nervous, sweaty palms, a turning stomach you name it. After talking to Dr. Pagano he made me a little les crazy, though I still cried when I sat in that chair. I've been listening to friends' horror stories for two weeks now. I have to admit those shots did not tickle, but took no time at all. Dr. Pagano was absolutely wonderful trying to cause the least pain possible. SURPRISE! My first tooth was out. I did not feel a thing. Dr. Pagano made sure all four wisdom teeth were numb before pulling them, so numb I couldn't feel anything for about 5 hours afterwards. After listening to everyone's horror stories I sure feel sorry for anyone that goes to another dentist other than Dr. Pagano. I just wanted to thank everyone at the office. Everyone is so kind and thoughtful. The whole staff made my visit a little easier. Thank you so MUCH!!

My daughter and I have been seeing Dr. Pete for about 8 years. We've had root canals, orthodontics, whitening, fillings, crowns and wisdom teeth extracted. I've always been treated respectfully and with patience. Dr. Pete's bedside manner is very caring and his staff are very service oriented. My daughter feels the same way.

My dental experience was extremely painless! Dr. Pete Pagano is an expert in filling and I highly recommend him as a personal dentist and an artist in making people look better and feel better!

Very displeased! Dr Pete performed a very rushed and distracted root canal on me. He was doing my root canal and a root canal on the patient beside me. Back and forth between the two of us. He broke off a tool in my gum (which is still there after 2 yrs), he didn't complete my root canal on the first try, sent me home, had to come back the following Monday for the rest of my roots to be dug out of my gums. He overcharged me and I had to harrass their part time accountant for 2 wks to get my refund. Now I found out two years later from my current dentist that my root canal has never fully healed and I might have to go thru the whole root canal procedure again. Dr Pete also messed up two other procedures on me. I feel like they are just trying to make a quick buck by offering and suggesting procedures. They also sold me some overpriced Calm Plus Calcium junk that I didn't realize it was for purchase until they stuck it on my bill. My tooth whitening experience was awful since the dental hygenist didn't check on me during the procedure. The cotton swabs that were supposed to prevent the chemicals from touching my gums had slipped off and caused me a lot of pain. I would discourage any one I know from going to this dentist. I felt like all he wanted to do was sell me products and procedures then rush thru them. Him and his staff are friendly but that doesn't make up for the poor work they do.

When I first came to Dr. Pagano's office, I was very apprehensive because he was a new dentist. After my consultation and check-up Dr. Pagano informed me that I needed to pull my wisdom teeth, not 1, not 2 but all 3!! I was terrified because I had so many horrible experiences with dentists in the past. He assured me that everything would be fine. During the procedure he talked to me the whole time and kept letting me know what he was doing. This made me feel calm. He would ask me if I felt any pain and I did not. After my wisdom teeth were pulled I didn't feel any pain nor did I need any pain medication! I've heard horror stories from people and their bad experiences with their wisdom teeth being pulled, but I had a good experience and that was due to Dr. Pagano's skilled and talented hands. He knows what he's doing and he's the best! I recommend him to everyone I know and meet. Thank you Dr. Pagano.

Dr. Pete has been my dentist for over 5 years. He performs every dental procedure with care and exquisite detail. Dr. Pete takes preventative measures to prevent small dental problems becoming bigger, such as root canals. I have even gone to Dr. Pete when experiencing ear or neck pain, which he has been able to cure without a costly procedure. Of all the dentists I have gone to, Dr. Pete is the one I trust the most! He is the most knowledgeable and makes a dentist visit a pleasant experience.

Dr. Pagano is a cut above the rest! I would never go to another dentist. He is the best dentist around. Not only is he great, his office is like being in a 5-star hotel, it is very relaxing, and the service goes along with it, it is also 5-star!

After having 2 wisdom teeth pulled in one sitting, I am a happy camper. Dr. Pete was fast and efficient removing the two perpetrators. Afterward there was minimal discomfort in the affected areas, little swelling and complications that could only be attributed to the work done by a skilled professional. Thank you Dr. Pete and Staff.

I realize high ratings may win you over when looking for a dentist, but sometimes it is worth reading the review that is the negative or not recommended review. Your experience at the dentist is not only with the dentist himself, in fact you often have much more interaction with the rest of the staff. They DO NOT follow through with what they say they will do, and are very mis-leading and unprofessional. Not to mention, Dr. Pagano himself seems very hurried, and impatient, and insincere. Not funny jokes, and trying to pretend he cares...but doesn't. They all seem very much in it for the money. Stay away!!! Dr. Pagano's office staff was very mis-leading by not telling me they were not a contracted provider with the insurance I carried. After months of trying to see what could be worked out, they gave no help or explanation other "you just have to pay the full amount" They sent the bill to collections, then once again when I made the attempt to talk through why they aren't willing to own up to the fact that they said one thing and did another, I was very unprofessionally "dealt" with, VERY immaturely spoken to and ignored until valuable time had been lost while the bill was in collections.

I was told from all of the symptoms I was experiencing, that I would need a root canal. But Dr. Pete said that not all of the telltale symptoms were present and instead started with a much gentler (and less expensive) procedure. That was a year ago and since then I've had no more problems with that area. Plus, he straightened my teeth and people are always complimenting my smile. His office is geared toward treating you ... you don't feel like you're a number. Very personalized service.
