"How many times have you heard "I hate going to the dentist"? Dr. Macaluso and his absolutely wonderful staff have trashed that statement. Never a 'painful' experience, but more like a family gathering!"
"While many hate going to the dentist, my family and I love it. We don't even live remotely close to this dentist, 40 minutes out. However, the drive is totally worth it. Dr. Macaluso and his team are top-notch, always considerate of our comfort and needs. The wait time is always just a few minutes and they never leave you stranded, wondering if your presence is known. They keep meticulous records of any issues had and communicate clearly what needs to be done and why. I have never left there in pain nor have I have ever had any discomfort from tools during a procedure; not even when drills are involved. They always call with genuine concern to make sure you are okay and if any pain med prescriptions are needed (when applicable). And if all this wasn't enough to garner loyalty, they are very accommodating with payment for service; they understand that these services are not "free" and are typically needing arrangements if insurance is not available. Super great people with a very compassionate approach to dentistry and business."
"Excellent dental care! Cleanings are always thorough, gentle, and quick. The staff places a high premium on your comfort and peace of mind. They also send helpful appointment reminders, coordinate a timely wait list, and work with your schedule. I highly recommend Dr. Macaluso's practice!"
"Always on time - always polite - always a comfortable experience!"
"Dr. Mac is the best dentist ever. I have recommended him to my family and friends and the have all used him. He has excellent beside manners"
