'm so pleased I found this place. They always go over and beyond to help their patients I had issues with my insurance they went as far as calling my company to answer all if my questions they are always working very hard to ensure we are satisfied. Dr Venterina and her staff have been by my side since day one I'm so happy I found them I didn't think a dental office would be this warm and kind Thank you all for always going above and beyond from Dr Venterina to the periodontis Dr.Stevens to Dr.berger Dr cataldo all the girls in the front and the amazing hygenstist Toniann thank you are you guys truly are EXCELLENT!!!!!

I have to start out to say this office is full of professionals they get right to the point with your dental needs they explained everything so clearly I felt as if I could of been the dentist at the end. They greet you with smiles and speak to you like they have known you for years... They don't judge you they are there to help you along the way. Dr Venterina has been practicing for over 30 years she is so smart and caring I'm so glad I found this office I recommend this place to everyone I just wish I found them sooner instead of bouncing from dentist to dentist

Alyssa Ramirez: She is an Amazing Clinical Assistant/ Business Staff to the firm!!! I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how much I appreciate your dedication and professionalism in handling my mom's dental and health issues. It is acts of kindness like yours that help us get through these very difficult times. You're the shining light that reaffirms my belief in humanity. I really appreciate your guidance, and the time you spent with me to make this transition go well for her. I can’t express the gratitude that I feel and appreciate everything you do. Furthermore, you do this all with a fantastic attitude and willing disposition and can we talk about that smile!!! I think you deserve a raise and promotion because people like you are so rare and we need to keep. We just wanted to make sure you know how much you are valued and appreciated. Rock on Alyssa!!! BTW Valerie Venterina, DDS, PC is an amazing doctor!!

Toniann, the hygienist has the GIFTS and skills of a MASTER. This is found with her calmness her patience and complete perfectionism that I have not experienced in my 40+years of visiting NUMEROUS hygienist. Having my teeth cleaned by her is always an experience of a POSITIVE joy ...

This has been my best dental experience. I don't like going to the dentist at all, but since I have found this office I don't mind now. They take care of you in a timely fashion and make you feel at home. Everyone in the office is very welcoming and kind. I even had an emergency and was in very bad pain and they had me come in right away to take care of the pain. I give everyone in the office 5 stars.
