Dr. Calamia was very clear when explaining to me what was wrong with my teeth! I knew I needed to get some wisdom teeth removed and she was super helpful letting me know which ones needed to go & why. Shewas also patient and explained what I was looking at on my x-ray. I’ve also been to her office for 3 cleanings and although I received the usual scolding for not flossing/drinking too much soda (I know I know, I’m bad!!), I appreciate that she was direct & she wasn’t too harsh about it! ??

Dentists don't get any better than Dr. Calamia. She's a gem! Skilled, empathetic, and fun. There's a reason she's booked so far in advance but totally worth the wait

Christine is an incredible dentist. I have an extreme aversion to dentists and haven't been in a few years, and she was very kind and informative. She answered every question I had and was extraordinarily knowledgable. She made a trip to the dentist a pleasant experience.

She’s so nice and funny! Made me feel super comfortable! She did my root canal and ALL of my experiences in the past from previous dentists were awful. I haven’t been to the dentist in 4 years until this year. Iwas super hesitant about getting another root canal because of the past but it was painless. Christine knows what she’s doing and cares about the quality of her work! Coming back to get another one done soon and I don’t feel anxious about it for the first time ever. So happy!

I’ve had two appointments recently, and both visits were fantastic. The entire staff is friendly and helpful, I was seen immediately upon arrival for my appointment, and for all the bad press “going to the dentist” can get, both visits werethoroughly pleasant. I’ve already referred coworkers and friends to this office. Great experience!

I hate dentists and will find a way to avoid them at all costs. Dr. Christine Calamia is the only dentist I will ever go to. She is skillful, genuinely kind and makes me feel that she has my best interest(s)in mind. When I step into her office I feel like I’m visiting an old friend so it’s a totally different experience from the horror show I was used to. Hands down, absolutely the best!

I was looking for a new dentist and found Dr Calamia! She is fabulous, as is the entire practice. I've enjoyed every visit and that includes a root canal!! You KNOW a dentist is great if one can say they enjoyeda visit that included a root canal. This is a family practice and they clearly practice with love. The entire staff is fantastic. I highly recommend this office.

I used to pick dentists based on my availability through zocdoc. Now I will cancel plans, take off work, travel distance based on Dr. Calamia's availability. She's the best at what she does! The rest of the staff are incredibly friendly as well.

This was my first cleaning with Dr. Christine Calamia and just like her brother & colleague, Dr. Vincent Calamia (who I have been a patient of for over 3 years), the visit was professional and timely!

Let me preface this by saying that I'm absolutely terrified of even stepping foot into a dentist office. In fact, when was escorted back to the exam room and greeted by the hygienist for my first visit I started crying. Iknow, totally absurd. But I can't help it. But both Christine and her brother Vincent made me feel so at ease. I have since been back a number of times, due to the fact that I neglected my teeth for about 5 years prior to going to see them. And every single time I go I feel more and more comfortable. They're both super pleasant and gentle, but thorough in their services and explanations. I highly recommend them both, and look forward to getting all of my dental issues sorted out and back on track in the next few months!

This is going to sound silly, but my appointment with Dr. Calamia actually left me in a great mood. That's not something I can say about any other doctor's appointment I've ever had. The dental cleaning was easy and painless, asshe was attentive to my sensitivities. I was in and out in under an hour, and the staff were incredibly kind. Highly, highly recommend!
