Dr. Oliva and Tina genuinely care about your overall health and well being! I felt completely safe going in for a lengthy procedure during the pandemic - they were taking all of the right precautions. I also appreciated how much time Dr. Oliva took to explain all of my options with regards to the procedure, his recommendations, and then to mutually decide on a path forward that I was completely comfortable with. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Oliva to everyone

Dr. Oliva has been my dentist for 25+ years and now takes care of my two sons. Dr. Oliva and Tina are wonderful. My youngest is Autistic and it took a year plus for him to be comfortable. They were great with him. He is now 16 and had his 1st wisdom tooth out. They made my son feel comfortable and everything went smoothly. I am so grateful for not only the experience but also the care and compassion provided by Dr. Oliva and Tina. I highly recommend Oliva Dentistry. You will be in good hands.

I would highly recommend Dr. Oliva to anyone. I have been under his care for 10 years. During this time he has spared me costly and unfortunate outcomes for my dental health. He is detail oriented and meticulous. His care is genuine, and he thinks "long term" for each of his patients. He actively learns new approaches in technology and the science of dentistry. I could not be more grateful to be under his care.

By far the best dentist I have ever had. His attention to detail (not many dentists do their own cleaning), keeping up with technology and running a great practice is unparalleled. In fact I now have my son seeing him as well.

I've been working with Dr. Oliva and his team for nearly thirty years and have nothing but high praise for his skills, for his dedication to the practice, and for his genuine compassion and empathy for his patients. Dr. Oliva did a huge amount of work on my badly-cared-for teeth in the mid-1990s and that work has lasted to this day -- and his coaching and regular cleanings have kept my mouth incident-free since then! His colleague, Tina Ness, who manages the office and assists with patient care, is equally skilled, caring and efficient. Their new office in Braintree is great -- and they have implemented a very high degree of protection (air quality, sanitation, etc.) to ensure a safe visit. I trust Dr. Oliva completely and am grateful for all the care he and Tina have provided to me and my family over the years!

Could you ever imagine smiling or laughing with your mouth closed? Try it yourself for just one day, and you will realize just how difficult it is. I had many years of practice and had become quite an expert. For various reasons, my teeth were extremely discolored. I thought I would have to live with this problem for the rest of my life. That was until I was referred to Dr. Oliva, who offered me a choice. He reviewed his plans with me and we moved forward to change my smile forever. The many hours of hard work and dedication he devoted to me were worth the final result. Just as he had promised, I now have a smile I can be proud of. Many thanks to you, Dr. Oliva.

I have been a patient of Dr. Oliva since 1990; he has provided dental care ranging from cleanings to implants. In all of these cases, he has been both thoughtful and kind. He keeps current in all of dental and medical literature, sharing this with his patients. An incident that demonstrates the care he provides patients is that he opened his office at 11 PM to provide emergency treatment to me. I would never consider seeing an other dentist.

Dr O is the best dentist our family has ever used. His office works hard to accomodate our needs and schedules. Dr O is so skilled at his craft that he is virtually painless.

I have been a patient of Dr. Anthony Oliva for 24 years.. Dr. Oliva has educated me on the importance of flossing, fluoride and wearing a nightly bite guard. He answers all of my questions patiently and completely in terms that I can understand. His concern for my overall oral health gives me satisfaction that I am receiving the best dental care possible. Dr. Oliva is a credit to his profession and I wholeheartedly recommend his dental practice.

It is a personal pleasure to recommend Dr. Oliva to anyone needing a dentist in this area. For over three decades, he has been my dentist. During these years, Dr. Oliva has always been professional and personable. Over the years, it was necessary to contact him about a dental emergency. He was always able to help me. Dr. Oliva's professionalism is unequalled.

Going back, like in a time machine to my Dorchester roots, I found a "Pot of Gold", my new dentist Dr. Anthony Oliva. Dr. Oliva straightened out my bite, treated my infected gums and firmed up my loose teeth. I am so happy now to be on maintenance while my mouth has never felt so good. Thank you Dr. Oliva.
