Like going to the dentist?? Almost....Relative to dental visits, Dr. Dallessandro's is top tier. He himself is a genuinely winning fellow - someone you'd be happy to add to guest list for a dinner party. Besides being very personable, he communicates well in the office. When he recommends a procedure, he explains in non-technical terms what the options are and why he's recommending this one. (He'll also take into account costs and insurance). While he's working, he'll tell you what's going and what's coming up. (Very important to the person in the chair) And he is sensitive to the patient's comfort (or discomfort, which he really does try to avoid). The folks on his staff are competent and nice, and they stay, which is a good sign. He's been my dentist for a decade - since first discovered. That says something; and that after all this time he still gets universal Excellent ratings says even more. (Although, on reflection maybe I overdid it on the office environment - the décor was maybe a 9).
