Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

The worst dentist I have encountered in 20 years of living in NJ. The crown he placed has fallen off only months of being placed. Even when crown was placed it never sat well. He inflicted pain in trying to make adjustments by drilling the healthy tooth matching the crown.

My first visit with Dr. Silvestri was a dental emergency. I called his office and he was able to squeeze me in despite having a full waiting room. He fixed the problem and my teeth have never looked better. Since that visit, I switched dentist and now I take my family here. I also want to mention that unlike any other Doctor k have seen, Dr. Silvestri gives the best patient service.There have been times he has answered his cell phone on Sunday night cause I had a question about my kids tooth.

They were great! The staff was friendly and professional. They took time to explain everything clearly. Dr. Silvestri was kind and explained the procedures that I needed. Best yet, he made the dental work painless. My teeth look great!
