I'm a new "phobic" patient. Just had my pre-op visit with Cindy and Dr Nick. They're great. They put me at ease and explained everything clearly. People at the desk are very friendly. I'm confident my big appointment next week will be a success!

I had 5 of my teeth extracted here. WAS SO MUCH BETTER THAN I EXPECTED IT TO BE! I thought I would be in so much pain and miserable and the following day I did my nails, etc. there was pain but very bearable. Dr. Nick did such a good job and Cindy was also awesome. The entire staff here are great and friendly. I live travel 40 minutes just to go to him and I wish I knew about their office sooner. I love that it is family owned with him and his wife. Dr. Nick is a great dentist. I have had very bad experiences and I am so grateful for coming here! I am now 8 days post op and I am doing a lot better than expected. I have recommended Dr. Nick and his wife to my coworkers and I hope that everyone experiences what I have because the dentist is never fun to go to. They make the experience very easy and anxiety free. Thank you so much Dr. Nick and to Cindy also. There is also a dental hygrntist there that I forgot her name. But she was brutally honest with me but very kind with her words on my dental hygiene. I now feel more educated and safe going here.

I brought my kids to Calcaterra when their previous pediatric dentist stopped taking Husky insurance. I had been nervous about the switch because I really liked their former dentist and felt unsure about switching them to a practice that wasn't specifically pediatric. From our first visit, however, my concerns were completely gone. I was so impressed that I wanted to switch to Calceterra myself, but I had to wait until I was no longer on Husky (unfortunately, few practices can take adults on Husky). I was honestly jealous of my kids when they went to the dentist. I especially appreciated how friendly, patient, and caring all staff members are, and the way they get to know and remember all their patients. Unbelievably, even without the gimmicks of a pediatric office, my anxious and sensory-sensitive son would actually get excited about going to the dentist and getting his teeth cleaned, even after they had to treat him for a cavity!! The care that my kids were receiving at Calcaterra was obviously totally superior to the care I was receiving elsewhere. I had just received a painful and probably poorly done root canal (that I wasn't even sure was necessary) at the other practice I was going to. After I got on a private (non-Husky) dental plan, I started experiencing pain in my jaw. I was able to get into Calcaterra right away and received gentle, thorough, and high quality care. When I worried about being able to afford the copay for my insurance, they worked with me to create a payment plan I could afford so I could get the care I needed when I needed it. I was so relieved to be with a dentist I could trust, and I have never looked back. It has been years now, and every time I go, I count my blessings. I just went yesterday for a cleaning. My family is in the midst of a medical crisis that I had told them about the day before when they called to confirm my appointment. As a result, I ended up running late. From the time I called to let them know I would be late and ask if they could still see me through the time I left the office, I was treated with the utmost compassion, understanding, and warmth. It was a much needed kindness in an extraordinarily difficult time. I couldn't let the week go by without leaving a long-overdue positive review.

Dr. Carla handed a filling for me today, and I was in and out of the office within thirty minutes. It took longer for the novacaine to wear off than it did for the entire procedure. I was home and pain-free before I knew it.

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.
