Dr. Costello and his team were amazing. The customer services were far and above my expectations. The office worked hand and hand with my dentist to have my work completed before the holidays. Dr. Costello kept me informed of every step of the procedure. I can’t say enough how pleased i’am of my experience. Highly recommend!

I went to see Dr Costello for extraction of a baby tooth and possibly an implanting replace it. I was very anxious I had heard awful stories from others. My experience with Dr Costello was excellent from consultation, to extraction to post placement for an implant. If I knew it was going to be so easy, pain free and pleasant. I wish I had done this year's ago. I highly recommend Dr Costello and his office staff is excellent also!

I was initially seen by Dr. Costello in the Maywood Office, but had the procedure done in the Franklin Lakes Office. It was the first time I went to him. The experience exceeded my expectations. Pain free, and surprisingly (for me), no swelling or black eye. I knew in advance what the out of pocket was going to be. I followed the post procedure instructions, including ice packs. I highly recommend Dr. Costello, and will go back to him if I need oral surgery again.

I had two extractions done and two implants put in. I recently completed getting the crowns. Dr Costello was caring and professional. I am completely happy with the results. Quality care at a reasonable price.

I had heard of Dr Costello's expertise but hadn't ever needed it. I finally did. I had an extraction and implant done on the same day, including some cutting of gums so that he could be sure the implant was PRECISELY in place due to some bone loss around the tooth. He explained the entire procedure to me clearly and methodically and then went to work. My mouth ached a bit when the novocaine wore off but not only did it not get any worse, I woke up the next morning and was pain free. Dr Costello is terrific and his staff is first-rate as well. Kudos!

No staff compares to Costello Oral Surgery and Dr. Costello himself provided EXCEPTIONAL care to my daughter in a pinch. I wish more providers and staff were as knowledgeable and efficient as Dr. Costello's.

I would recommend Dr. Costello based on my son's experience with him and how he treated each of us when examining him and before his procedure. He was most amenable to taking his time, talking to us and explaining the procedure he was going to be doing on my son (multiple tooth extractions).

My son had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted. My son was nervous about the procedure. Dr. Costello and his team helped make my son feel comfortable. I think he is a professional caring and thorough oral surgeon and I highly recommend him.

The Maywood office is absolutely beautiful! A very warm and relaxed atmosphere. I can't say enough good things about every one of the staff. They are all so thorough, friendly, pleasant, caring and compassionate. Dr. Tiffany Kuang is an awesome Oral Surgeon. She is extremely thorough and goes over your medical history with a fine tooth comb. Dr. Kuang discusses in detail any concerns she may have or any questions or concerns you may have. There is no feeling of being rushed. I highly recommend Dr. Tiffany Kuang and feel extremely confident in recommending her and Dr. Costello's practice to family and friends. I would like to thank Dr. Kuang and the staff at Dr. Michael Costelo's practice for a pleasant and pain free experience.

Cocky and condescending attitude. I went in for a consultation about wisdom teeth extraction. I asked him questions such as If I leave that horizontal tooth there will it move and push on to the tooth next to it. His answer was that every other patient asks the same questions and that he cannot predict the future. I mean excuse me for asking dumb questions as he made me feel. He then answer the that I would have to keep watching that tooth because it can cause damage to the tooth next to it. o_o

Dr. Costello demonstrated his above average medical skills when he knew immediately my son had a more serious condition than just wisdom tooth pain. He was gentle in his delivery in communicating that our son needed a biopsy. He is one of the best in his field. Thanks to Dr. Costello, our son has been treated and has avoided any serious permanent damage to his jaw.
