Proud Supporters of Amity Regional High’s Production of Into the Woods

For the second year in a row, we are proud to support Amity Regional High School’s Spring drama production. This year, the Theater Department is producing Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine.

We are SO excited for it that we even had a graphic developed for the production using characters from Into the Woods:

Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf both had their teeth done here before their big night in Into the Woods! Dentistry by Dr. Nicholas Calcaterra.

As you can see, the Wolf had his teeth worked on by Dr. Calcaterra. Dr. Nick did several porcelain veneers and then pulled the Wolf’s wisdom teeth. We think the results speak for themselves!

All joking aside, we are proud to report that several of our patients are members of the Cast, Crew, and Orchestra. In fact, for every production for the past several years, we’ve had multiple patients involved.

Congratulations to all those involved in this exciting show. And as we said last year, break a leg not a tooth!

Murphy Molargator Teaches Orange Kids Oral Hygiene

In early March, our hygienist Crystal and Murphy Molargator traveled just down the road to the Southern Connecticut Hebrew Academy in Orange to visit the preschool. With so many students from the school already being patients in our dental practice, we saw many familiar faces!

Our mission was simple: to show the entire preschool the importance of oral hygiene. Murphy’s big teeth and Crystal’s infectious enthusiasm guaranteed that all the kids learned proper brushing and hygiene skills. We think the photos speak for themselves:

This preschooler had lots of fun brushing Murphy’s teeth.

Murphy has 32 teeth and can open REALLY wide.

This little one took her brushing very seriously.

We spoke to several different groups and all the kids had a great time. And Murphy left with shiny white teeth!

We are always accepting patients of all ages. Visit this page to request an appointment or call us at (203) 799 – 2929.

Use Apple Pay at our Office

We know that coming to the dentist is not everyone’s favorite activity. We also know that teeth and a great smile are a worthwhile investment, but paying for dentistry is not everyone’s favorite activity either.

That’s why we’ve made it even easier for our existing and future patients.

Use Apple Pay at our Orange, CT dentist office

We’re the first dental office in Orange to publicly announce we accept Apple Pay!

For our patients who have an iPhone 6, or who are thinking about an upgrade to an iPhone 6, you can use Apple Pay at our office. While Apple Pay is still relatively new, for our patients who do utilize it, we’ve found it to be very convenient.

Why do we mention this? We do it to emphasize our commitment to adopting and using modern technology in all aspects of our dental practice. Since being one of the first offices to implement digital x-rays, to allowing our patients to receive appointment reminders via text, to even offering gluten free dentistry, we are constantly evaluating ways to make your experiences as pleasant as possible.

Have an idea for us? Want to make an appointment? Call us (203) 799 – 2929 or visit this page.


Break a Leg – Just Don’t Break a Tooth!

As the opening performance of Tarzan the Musical approaches, we are pleased to announce that we are AmityBill Advertising Partners for this exciting show! We are one of only a few dental offices making such a significant financial commitment to this production. Tarzan is scheduled to kick off on Friday March 20, 2015, at Amity High School in Woodbridge.

Our Orange, CT dentist office are Advertising partners for Tarzan

Many of our patients make up the Cast, Crew, and Orchestra!

In addition to being Advertising Partners for the show, we have another connection. Several of our dental patients are involved with Tarzan as either Cast or Crew members or playing in the Orchestra. As a result, our entire office has a special connection with this Amity High Production.

In addition, Ryan Rappaport, son of our Office Assistant Cathy Rappaport, has a major role in the show. This past week, he has been rehearsing from 5:30 to 10 PM. Go Ryan!

We’d like to wish all of our dental patients – either audience members or those involved with the show – the very best. And remember – break a leg – just not a tooth!
