in Ellwood City, PA |
I was very impressed with the overall expertise and care provided by Dr. Roccia and his team. The process was completed quickly, efficiently and much more painlessly than I could have imagined. What I anticipated as being an extremely traumatic experience was quite the opposite and I would certainly recommend this professional and his team!
in Mars, PA |
I have been a patient of Dr. Roccia for several years and every appointment has been a very pleasant and positive experience. He is always cheerful, inquires about any health issues since my last visit, answers all my questions and never seems rushed during my appointments. His staff are very friendly and make me feel welcome. I would highly recommend him to family and friends.
Glenshaw, PA |
Dr. Roccia is the best! He removed by wisdom teeth with zero complications and very little pain - I didn't even need the narcotics. He's super friendly and you can tell he really cares about his patients. Office staff is friendly as well, I was able to get an appointment quickly which I really appreciated!

Dr Roccia did a great job removing my wisdom teeth. I was near full health in less than a week and the swelling was minimal.
in Pittsburgh, PA |
Dr. Roccia did an implant for me. He explained the exact procedure from start to finish. There was very little pain. Actually the last time we met I didn't even have to be numbed because the pain was so little. I would definitely recommend Dr. Wayne Roccia to everyone. The entire practice is great! I had also taken my children there to have their wisdom teeth removed. Very efficient practice. Julie Flaherty
Pittsburgh, PA |
Dr. Roccia was very welcoming in getting me into his office and taking care of a problem that 3 other professionals were unable to remedy. On the day of surgery, he and his staff worked efficiently and empathetically while I was awake and under local anesthesia only. The doctor also personally called me after surgery to be sure I was doing well and had no questions. I would recommend Dr. Roccia and his staff wholeheartedly and without reservation!
in Pittsburgh, PA |

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with Dr Roccia and his staff. He removed my son's wisdom teeth. From the beginning of the first appointment he made us feel at ease and was very invested in my son's care. He's a very personable surgeon with an excellent bedside manner. On surgery day, the office made my son and I feel completely at ease. The care he received was top notch. He had very minimal swelling and barely needed any pain medication. Highly recommended!

Dr. Roccia has an amazing touch. I felt virtually no pain during the extraction or the placing of my implant. I would highly recommend him.
in Wexford, PA |
I needed an extraction of a molar with 3 roots that had root canal but that had too much decay to be salvaged, he did it without complications and just with novocaine, no need for sedation and no pain whatsoever. The healing process was as he had described, and one week after the extraction (as I write this), everything looks and feels good.
in Mars Pa |
Very patient friendly and technically brilliant.
in Beaver, Pa |
Very excellent oral surgeon. I had no pain with excellent results. His staff is very kind and calming. I would recommend Dr. Roccia to everyone. Very talented Doctor.
in Gibsonia, PA |
Dr Roccia removed all 4 of my wisdom teeth. He explained everything very clearly before the surgery, and was able to perform it within a week of my first visit. I want to Thank him for the Great job he did, and would HIGHLY recommend him to my friends and family.
in Pittsburgh, PA |
I cannot express enough how satisfied I am with the results of the orthognathic surgery completed by Dr. Roccia. Dr. Roccia and his staff were first class throughout the entire process and fully explained the overall surgical timeline prior to the procedure and provided top-notch care and expertise after the surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Roccia to those that require orthognathic surgery (double jaw). He is the ultimate professional and exhibits considerable compassion and expertise.
This man verbally abused my child while I sat in the waiting room and then said she could not have remembered correctly because she was under anesthesia, which was not true. He made these statements before she was administered any medications. He is arrogant and does not hold himself accountable for his actions or his responsibility to the patient.
