What our patients have to say about us

Over 120 5-Star Reviews on Google & Facebook

"Dr. Fabio's office is ALWAYS on time - Love this because some doctors make you wait forever - I guess some feel our time is not valuable. I have been going to Dr. Defabio for probably 30 years. My family and I would not go to anyone else."

"If you want an excellent dentist who is funny, does great work, and cares about his patients, Dr. DeFabio is the one! He did an excellent job fixing my chipped teeth! I couldn't be happier! Also, I've been coming to him for a long time and I drive 45 mins to see him!"

"By far the best dentist I have ever had. They saved many of my teeth. Always painless. Gentle caring and kind office overall. My family and all my friends go and have the same great experience. You're lucky to be with both Dr. Defabio and Dr. Erica Defabio. They are the best with the highest level of training."

"Dr. DeFabio is an excellent dentist. I have been going to him for 27 years. He has a great sense of humor but when it comes to his work he is all business. If you don't enjoy going to your current dentist you may want to consider switching to Dr. DeFabio. You will not be disappointed."
