What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "Not much to say except that Dr. Pete and his staff are the very best in the business. I've been a patient for nearly 30 years and would not ever consider another dentist. I don't have a fear of dentists, but my mother-in-law did and had not seen a dentist in many, many years. When she moved back to NY from FL, she needed a lot of work. Dr. Pete and his staff took wonderful care of her and she no longer has any trepidation when she needs to go."

  • Fillings

    The bacteria in plaque produce acids that erode tooth enamel, eventually creating a hole, or cavity, in the tooth surface. Left untreated, this decay can spread to the interior of the tooth, and might lead to the need for a crown, a root canal, or even extraction. When caught early, your dentist can ...
