Dental fillings or restorations are sometimes needed to restore the function and integrity of teeth.


Fillings are often needed as a result of tooth decay (caries), trauma, and broken teeth.

Digital X-Rays


X-Rays are pictures or images of the teeth, bones and soft tissues which surround them. Dental x-rays are used to “see” and identify problems such as cavities, hidden dental structures and bone loss, which cannot be seen by simple visual examination.


Make an appointment.



A tooth which is very badly decayed or damaged may need to be surgically removed.

Prior to removing the tooth, dentist will provide a local anesthetic to numb the area; sedation dentistry may also be employed.

Dental implants are often the preferred method for replacing missing or badly damaged teeth. Dental implants are long-term replacements of missing or badly damaged teeth which are surgically anchored to the jawbone by the dentist.

Dr. Struzziero, as per usual, was his expert, professional self with a touch of comfort and humor! Danielle, the dental assistant, was great too! Coming in and upon checking out, Danielle, the receptionist couldn't have been more helpful or friendly! Great experience at a most uncomfortable time! Thanks to all.

Always a joy to go to the dentist. Staff and doctor are great...just like family.

~Ronald G.

Dr Richard Struzziero is the best dentist I've ever had, and in 63 years there have been a lot! He is so knowledgeable, so savvy as to what problems are, so honest about NOT having to do dental work if not needed, and uncannily gentle when working in a patient's mouth. The staff are wonderful, friendly, patient and super helpful.

~Bob G.

Prompt appointment. Lovely personalities of staff. The Jet Blue of Dental Offices. ~Kristina C.
