I've never had such an amazing cleaning in my life. Megan walks you through everything she's doing and is super gentle while making sure she gives you the best cleaning possible. Dr. V, Jackie and everyone else at this office is the absolute best.

I almost look forward to my appointments with Dr. V. His staff keeps the environment fun and light. It helps to pass the time quickly and reap the benefits of great work with the least amount of pain and bother as possible. Who would have thought the dentist could be fun?

I have been to Dr. Vocaturo only 2 times and have had only great experiences with such a well mannered office staff and doctor. I've had many bad experiences with other dental offices. None with Dr. Vocaturo and his staff. Wonderful work.
