Patient Comments (5)
Haven't been to the dentist in a few years and was very nervous. The whole staff treated me so well and kept me calm and comfortable. Would recommend this practice to anyone looking for a new practice. Thank you do everything you did for me. Matthew Duffy

My dentist, whom I trust implicitly recommended I see him for gum surgery and I sure wasn't looking forward to it! I was very pleased to find that Dr, Amato is cheerful, exceptionally caring and very personable. He makes you feel at ease and explains what he's doing. My entire procedure was painless-before and after. I highly recommend him - without a doubt, he's the best!

Dr. Amato explained the procedure I needed (dental implants) and without haste I moved forward with the work. But I admit. I was scared. Dr. Amato removed 2 teeth but it was painless and far less scary than I imagined. The implants were a piece of cake. I highly recommend Dr. Amato. He is friendly, respectful and knows his job. His staff is tops plus the office and treatment rooms are you whistle clean.

I concur with Nancy who wrote a review here about Dr. Amato. He has an absolutely lovely manner - as do all of his staff - and his work is exemplary (I had gum surgery). He explains everything fully and, like Nancy, I had absolutely no pain post-surgery. Recommend highly!

Gum recession surgery went smoothly. Dr. Amato explained the treatment for me, answered my questions and the surgery was painless. Office staff is positive and mirrors Dr. Amato's fantastic bedside manner.
