Went to have my teeth cleaned and they told me x-rays were mandatory. Never in my life has any dentist insisted on x-rays before a cleaning! Plenty of info can be found in Google showing dental x-rays have been shown to cause thyroid and brain cancer, so x-rays should only be used when absolutely necessary. No wonder there is a cancer epidemic! When I refused the x-rays for health reasons, they refused to clean my teeth! Unbelievable.
UPDATE: I went down the road to another dentist and he cleaned my teeth without insisting on any x-rays.

My whole family ENJOYED going to the dentist! I’ve never been able to say that before. Crystal was a miracle worker with my two and half year old. She used a quirky puppet to patiently explained everything to my daughter before each step of the exam. She even held my 6 month old when my daughter needed a potty break. Dr. Calcaterra is friendly, efficient, and doesn’t push unnecessary procedures. Great staff, clean and modern office, convenient location and hours, and affordable.

Highly recommend this dentist office. I’m usually very nervous going to the dentist, but the Calcaterra staff always makes me feel safe and comfortable every time I come in for an appointment. I recently had my wisdom teeth extracted and it went better than I thought it would. They made sure I felt no pain during and as little of pain after. I also would like to give a big thanks to one of the dental assistants, Cindy, she called me a few days later to make sure I was recovering properly! They are just amazing.

Amazing. everyone there is very friendly, I did not like the dentist before I went here. it has been 5 plus years since I went. I just had a total of 6 extractions and did IV sedation. Jennifer, Toni, Cyndi, Carla and Nick Calcaterra are the best out people out there. I love this place and will be going here from now on.

Recently I brought my 16yr old son to Calcaterra Family Dentistry. We were advised to try the office out after my sons severe needle anxiety was making it near impossible to get any dental work done at our normal dentist. From the very beginning my experience was phenomenal! The receptionists were very polite and understanding and I was able to get a consult appointment fairly quickly! The office itself was an hour away from our home but was it so worth the drive and I wish I had known about them earlier! They talked my son through everything and helped put him at ease. When the day came for the appointment everything went so smooth. Cyndi was so helpful and not once did my son have any anxiety! in fact we left the office SMILING! The whole appointment went very smoothly and the dentist did awesome work. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone with any kind of fear or anxiety of going to the dentist! I have already passed their info on to my sons therapist for anyone else who might need work done. THANK YOU for turning what usually is a near tears experience into something positive!
