Dr. Gatta's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gatta " I grew up in Newport, RI and have had the chance to practice in many locations from my time in the Navy, including San Diego, Bahrain and Washington DC. I love the challenge of my job and appreciate the scientific and artistic skills it takes to be successful. I understand what it feels like to lack confidence in your smile. As a child, I broke a front tooth and was also in braces. After I was treated to repair the damage, I regained that positive self-esteem, which inspired me to go to Dental School and provide that same sense of wellness to others. I am committed to helping you get your life back with a confident smile. Complex rehabilitations are my specialty and I look forward to working with you. When I am not practicing dentistry, I enjoy traveling, tennis and skiing. "

My family thanks you for putting a smile on my face. I was so self-conscious about my smile. You took your time and pay attention to detail, I can’t thank you enough for that.

So glad I went to this office! My mom goes here and so I looked it up on Yelp and my goodness it was all negative reviews! I was really close to cancelling. So glad I didn't. Everyone here was delightful and great at their job, from reception down to the doc. They were 100% clear about how much...more

I tend to be very dentalphobic, which means that by the time I do go to the dentist there is more work to be done causing greater anxiety. Dr. Gatta has truly helped to diminish my phobia, and has made going to the dentist a more pleasant experience.
