Dr Silvestri and his staff are all very friendly...I was a new patient and needed a root canal done. Dr Silvestricalled me the night of the procedure to make sure I was ok...I think that says a lot about him as a person. I have never had a doctor or dentist call to check up on me! I highly recommend him

Richard is extremely fast and gets all tooth procedures done rapidly. From root canal, crown, and bridge work, and fillings..I wish I had used him years ago, but I stayed with an unnamed dentist for so long, I didn't know of Dr. Silvestre, but now I am completely sold, on Richard, he is an ace dentist AND a very interesting person who I now consider a friend.

Dr Silvestri is a no nonsense dentist. He found problems with my teeth that he caught before previous dentistry that was done elsewhere recognized. I had 1 and 1/2 hours in the chair, in relative comfort and have now a temp covering what will be a bridge in two weeks..

Dr Silvestri was nice. More importantly, his receptionist Patty was so absolutely sweet and helpful. Also, the hygienist Peggy was the nicest and most caring dental professional I've been to.

Doctor and assistant made me feel very comfortable which is saying a lot because I am a nervous dental patient. Very professional yet very friendly. Watching the TV and chatting during the visit really helped a lot!

The whole office was really great and Dr. Silvestri was fantastic in his care. He even called me later that night to make sure I was feeling OK after the anesthetic wore off and to hear if I was experiencing any pains.

As far as dentist visits go, Dr.Silvestri's office was top notch! His staff was friendly as they were happy to take any questions you would have. The doctor actually came out and introduced himself while he was in between appointments, whichwas very cool. When one of the assistants took me in for my cleaning, she talked to me and we laughed through it (when the tools weren't in my mouth) and before I knew it, it was done! Then, when the doctor came in to administer the exam and he was just as personable! He took his time to check every single tooth and told me I needed to have my wisdom teeth pulled and gave me a card to see an oral surgeon, which was incredibly helpful. What a fantastically run office!
