The man who called me was very rude and told me I basically had no choice in keeping my appointment the day I was supposed to go - The excuse he gave was ridiculous and could have been fixed in minuteson my end as I have done it before. He refused to even let my mother make an appointment for herself. He has no skills and no reason to be making calls for this Dentist as she herself is wonderful - he isnt doing her any favors,

My son and I had an appt with Dr. Precilyn Silvestre-Melo today. This was not our first time here. She and her staff are awesome! My son's first visit here, he was very anxious and nervous. She and her friendly staffslowly eased him in and took their time with him, assuring him the whole way through. By today's visit, he was like a seasoned pro. While I was talking to her assistant, he went in with out any coaxing and I find him sitting in the chair chatting with another staff member getting ready for Xrays. Wow! As for me, I've been through a lot of dentists in my life and I can say with confidence that Dr. Silvestre-Melo is exceptional! She makes sure that I'm comfortable and well taken care of throughout my visit. Hands down the best!

Dr. Precilyn Silvestre-Melo was very nice and informative. I Must admit that I was scared at first because I don't like the dentist but Dr.Melo was welcoming and knew her stuff. I will definitely be back in the future. The front desk staff was also very nice. Great office!

Great! Dr. Silvestre was recommended to me from family and I will be recommending to more family and friends. They fit me in right away and were ready for me as soon as I got there. Explained everything to me andanswered all my questions so I was comfortable and understood what needed to be done. Super nice and friendly staff from the dentist to the assistant and Anne at reception. They did a great job, were very affordable and even called that same evening to see how I was feeling.

I thought she was extremely professional and knowledgeable and very thorough, painless and excellent in result. However, the patient has to be aware & question necessity, insurance coverage & cost of all suggested procedures & treatments--& decline those that are not covered or affordable!

My fillings were very sloppy, the office is disorganized (I waited over an hour and left, then came back for a later appointment), and they did not listen when I told them my medical history. I informed them I needed morepain treatment than the average person, yet I heard the doctor say to use the normal amount. Guess who experienced excruciating pain over and over until they gave me more meds, like I asked for in the first place. Worst dentist ever.

Dr. Silvestre's bedside manner was extremely professional. Also, she was able to immediately determine how to fix all initial problems with no pain--going to great lengths to include additional details to make the treatment complete, so that further visits would be unnecessary. Finally, all treatments were done very speedily!

She's very tender and compassionate. She allay my fears of House of Pain (Dentist). Initial visit was a piece of cake. The worst is yet to come and she will have to hold my trembling hands. Will try my best notto shed tears. Salama and Aloha Lei (Ray in Hawaiian)

She was very friendly and knowledgeable. She took her time and educated me about the purpose of my visit. I didn't feel rushed the staff was really really helpful and showed me examples of my options for my next visit. Itwas my first time at the Newark location, I felt like I've been coming to this office forever! I think I've found a new dentist, so happy! Thanks for making my visit so pleasant!

I had a very bad experience with this office. The office is only opened 3 days each week Wed Friday and A Saturday once each month. My appointment was last Friday and the Dentist had no help because her assistant calledoff work. I needed what I thought to be a routine root canal job but turned out to be a nightmare. Dr Silvestre-Melo first glued my teeth upper and lower and asked that I try to open my mouth so that I could use my jaws to extract the tooth in question I cannot believe that she would attempt this primitive like technique in the 21st century but she did. Very painful, Needless to say I asked to go to a Specialist to have the root canal work done there. Very disappointing with the techniques this dentist is using and would never recommend this Dentist or office to anyone.....

I was elated about the appearance of my gums & teeth after my Deep Cleaning treatment session with Dr. Sylvestri. Included in my gum treatment for recession & gingivitus was whitening/polishing the surrounding teeth. Although I have very sensitiveteeth, her work was virtually pain free; I had no need for anesthesia.

I went in for a invisalign consultation. I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't offered free like all the other dentists and orthodontist, but my insurance covered it, so no problem. The front desk staff was very helpful and patientwith me, also seemed professional. The dentist seemed very nice as well, but I felt a bit rushed out of the consultation. It only lasted about 10 min, since there was no x-ray or pictures to take nor any brochure to give out. Over all, the consultation was very casual- but the price they quoted me was much more reasonable than any other place! I am happy about that.

Our appointment was at 2:00, my son was in the chair by 2:10 and seen by the doctor right away. The consultation was great, very detailed in her explanations but in a way that I could understand it all. She sensedthat my son was a little nervous so she went ouf of her way to make him feel comfortable.
