Best Dentist on Marco! My whole family goes to Dr. A. Trustworthy, honest, knowledgeable, and has always been there for us. His work is always outstanding and he is fun. Who thought that going to the dentist would be fun. He sings, dances, and tells jokes. Highly recommended!
in Ft Myers, FL |
I have been to many dentists over the years and Dr. Abbiati is the best dentist! He explains his treatment plans in detail. He shows each and every patient the condition of their teeth, tooth by tooth. He is an honest to a fault dentist and his knowledge of dentistry is extensive. Island Paradise Dental is a no pressure office. He has done extensive work on my teeth and the work is excellent. I highly recommend Dr. Abbiati and everyone at Island Paradise Dental!
Marco Island, FL |
Beware. Have a second opinion before you go along with his enourmous treatment plan and scare tactics that your teeth will all be gone in a year if you do not get something done immediatley. I was told I needed 12 crowns, and a root canal "redone". I asked 3 times for info in writing which I never got. 2 other second opinions confirmed I only needed 5 crowns and root canal was in perfect condition. Also, he wants full payment for crowns up front. The norm is 50% down and balance at delive
We are sorry that you disagree with Dr. Abbiati's professional opinion. We provide top quality patient focused dental care in a no pressure environment. Every patient gets a detailed intra-oral photo exam where we show the patient what their teeth look like. Then, we step back and allow the patient to make their decision on treatment. We also explain to every patient what treatment is urgent, future need, or cosmetic. We offer several payment plans or payment is made in full upon treatment.

Seems to push you into numerous expensive crown replacements. Had some pretty far out statements, for example; "this crown has shifted due to grinding" (Crown was still perfectly situated between adjacent teeth, but had a pocket at the base due to poor prior workmanship. If it had shifted, it would have come off). Another one; "this filling came off due to grinding" (Small filling between front teeth at base. There is no way to grind my tooth there)
We are sorry that you felt your experience at Island Paradise Dental was not 5 star and an excellent experience. We pride ourselves on providing top quality service and fully explaining your treatment options. Dr. Abbiati's treatment plans are detailed and discussed at lengthen with each and every patient. We are sorry that you do not agree with his professional opinion, but wish you well regarding your future dental care.

Best dentist for a crown and whitening. I had such a great experience with Dr. Abbiati that I now have him treat my kids.
in Marco Island, FL |
Thanks to Dr. Abbiati and his caring staff! On a weekend, I was in terrible pain and he answered the call. He is extremely knowledgeable and walks you thru everything. I am afraid of the dentist and he got me thru this terrible pain without issue. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. Best Dentist on Marco!

My wife and I have a 10 year history with other dentists on the Island. We have no serious issues other than the occasional filling. We decided to switch to Dr Abbiatti's new practice. At the initial visit he recommended massive treatments for my wife including replacement of old crowns and fillings costing $20,000 plus. We decided to get a second opinion. We ended up with another dentist who recommended less than one third of the treatments at a much much lower cost.

Dr. Abbiati did crowns on my six front teeth and they are absolutely beautiful. I constantly get complements on my teeth and no one believes that they are crowns.
Dr Abbiati is always helpful and sensitive to my needs. I really enjoy my relationship with him.
