What our patients have to say about us

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."

- Adriana S.

"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."

Commonly Asked Questions

Where are you located?

We are conveniently located in Colts Neck, NJ 07722. NJ-34 in Colts Neck, NJ only 1 mile north of Delicious Orchards. DeFabio Dental Design is easy to get to from the Garden State Parkway, Route 18, and 195.


What COVID-19 precautions do you take?

We take many precautions to keep you and your family safe when you are in our care. We limit the number of patients at our Colts Neck dental office and we allow time in between appointments to sterilize the office. Our air purification system, which we have had long before the pandemic, has been approved by the FDA to kill 99.99% of COVID-19. We also use a sterilizing fogger to further sanitize the office.


Do you accept my insurance?

We do not accept any insurance directly. We are a Fee-For-Service dental practice. This is what allows us to offer such high-quality care, the cleanest environment (we limit appointments and allow time to sanitize the office in-between appointments), and why we never have to rush treatment.

We do offer payment options to help you get the excellent care you deserve.


Does this mean my insurance won't cover my treatment? 

Not at all. This is a common misconception. Your insurance will likely cover a large portion of the treatment. You are only responsible to pay the difference and for that, we offer different payment options. Often this is not much more than what you would be responsible for with an in-network dentist. Our team is happy to file your insurance claims on your behalf.
