I am a 74 year old man who had to have complete dental restoration done. My bite had to be corrected first before I could get my super star smille. I am so happy that my daughter recomanded me to Dr.Scerbo he has performed a miracle in my mouth. Not only do my teeth look phenomenal but they fit so perfectly that I now enjoy eating a steak which I was not able to do before. Thank you Dr Scerbo Robert N

You can get everything done in one location. Ask about their office plan and get discounts off almost everything. Nice crowns . He can do natural looking or very white if that's what you want (like me). Very nice staff.

I hate giving bad reviews and I have to say Dr. Scerbo is excellent, excellent bedside manner, great personality, very professional. Very happy w/his work. Anytime I've ever had issues it is never w/the Dr.... always with the staff unfortunately.I had scheduled a regular routine cleaning (covered 100% by insurance), nothing else was scheduled or mentioned. When I went in for the cleaning she did the cleaning and wanted to do x-rays which I agreed to. When I get the EOB from the insurance company they had also billed me for "periodontal maintenance" which I never requested, was never mentioned at anytime during or prior to the visit. I asked why I was being charged that and why it was done and they claim "it was because of a deep cleaning I had 3 years ago"!!!! WHAT????? Ridiculous... I couldn't get thru to her that they can't do maintenance without my consent or approval and they can't charge my insurance company for work I never agreed to. She wouldn't listen, so unfortunately I had to send a claim into my insurance company and also had to send a complaint form into the Florida Board of Dentistry to "excessive treatment". I have advised the the office in writing that, that particular bill will not be paid and would like to settle this amicably... .still no answer. Will update .....

Dr. Scerbo office staff is always professional in their respective positions, but in the event one employee may be out, the office is never without an answer for your questions, and always welcomes you with the utmost friendly greetings. Dr.Scerbo is a great Dentist who takes pride in not only his profession, but also the care of his staff and office to make sure all runs smoothly for his patients. I wouldn't change Dr. Scerbo for any other Dentist, ever!

My visit with Dr. Scerbo was great. I had no been to the dentist for about 3 years due to lack of dental insurance. They were quick with getting my back to take x-rays, have the exam and explain what hefound. They also explained all the plan and associated costs with the plan of action and they were extremely helpful with scheduling. . It really helps to make an informed decision. I highly recommend Dr. Scerbo and his entire office staff.

The Dental hygienist, while cleaning my teeth, could not prevent water from constantly spraying all over my face while she used the tool she was using. Other hygienists at other offices I have gone to have never had that problem.

i called for an appointment because of a serious toothache. The staff gave me an appointment time which was met. Dr. Scerbo made a determination that extraction was necessary. The fee quoted was reasonable, and for the next hour and ahalf work of the ultimate in professional decorum came from Dr. Scerbo and several side chair assistants. The offending tooth came out. I had no residual pain, or complication, .and while no one looks forward to dental work, this is the office of choice to have it done.

Dr. Scerbo is an excellent dentist!!! He was my dentist when I lived in South Florida. So when I moved four hours away and fractured my tooth, it was a no brainer who would repair it. I knew it would berepaired correctly with minimal pain. I was up at 5am slightly excited to go to the dentist. LOL By that afternoon, I was done. The next morning I woke up with no pain. YEAH!!

Very professional and personable. He and the staff made me feel very welcome and important to them. They have lots of technology that gives them the best data possible about the condition of my teeth. I saw the xrays they tookimmediately on the computer screen and I could see for myself as they showed me the condition of my teeth and gums. They create a relaxed and professional atmosphere. I barely had to wait 10 minutes during the entire visit. I'm very happy with the future health of my teeth after my experience at Dr. Scerbo's office.
