Maritato Dental L.L.C.
I have mixed reviews. In the past, I have been very impressed by the professionalism and technological abilities of Dr. Maritato's office. However, this last visit I was not impressed at all. I broke a tooth and went in to have it fixed. Dr spent about 15 seconds looking at it and determining I needed a root canal and crown. Then he spent 3 minutes chastising me for not spending the money to fix it last year. I explained to him that I ran short of cash last year (we all know how costly dental work can be and how lousy dental coverage is) when he yelled at me and told me I was going to run short of teeth if I didn't get them taken care of. I understood what he was saying and what he meant but I don't believe he needed to say it in that manner. Then to top it off, there wasn't an available appointment for 3 weeks. So here I sit, in the worst kind of pain imaginable, with another two weeks until I have hope of relief but also wondering if I will be yelled at again and trying to figure out where I can come up with the money to pay for all the work needed so I won't ever get yelled at again. However, I am relieved that once we plan it out, all the work can be done in one or two visits. I do appreciate the kindness and the helpfulness of the front desk and hygenists. Aside from the experience of my last visit, I would recommend Dr. Maritato.

Dr. Mario has been my dentist for the last 6 years. He has been nothing but kind, patient and very thorough (don't forget painless!). I've notice more and more state of the art technology and he is an expert at using this technology to assist in providing the best, less costly, quick and painless care. When my husband and I retire to Florida, we are going to drive back every 6 months just to make sure we continue getting this kind of care from Dr. Mario. I want to thank his staff for getting me in an emergency and for their kindness. Thanks Jenny for being so professional, yet so nice. My old crown came off and they were able to see me the next day. My tooth had decay underneath the old (which made it loose). Dr. Mario took care of the decay, notice that I was on the cusp of needing a root canal and gave me the option of fixing my tooth with a root canal or proceeding with crown and see how things were. I got options and it was my choice to choose the root canal. So, right there and there, he started the root canal, finished it, molded my crown and inserted my permanent crown right there and then! All in one sitting. He is truly remarkable! Thank you, Dr. Mario and staff, I hope to never have to find another dentist!!! Caren Hallyburton

After years of "Dentist phobia," finally found a dentist I don't dread going to. Dr. Crawford always makes sure I'm comfortable. Atmosphere is very relaxing. He explains everything in detail and shows you not only the work that needs to be done, but also shows you the work in progress as he's doing it. He has the latest techniques, equipment, and expertise. A while back, I had a root canal and crown done. He made sure i was comfortable and I was able to watch on the computer screen as he took the precise measurements for my crown. My crown was made right there on state-of -the- art computerized equipment. And in just that one visit, I had the root canal and crown done! No return or second visit needed. Hygienist and office staff are wonderful as well. My husband, daughter and son see Dr. Crawford as well! Very satisfied with our dental experiences!

I would highly recommend Dr. Maritato for the whole family. My family recently switched to Dr. Maritato. He is so thorough and up to date with technology.The pictures and panoramic xrays are great, they show everything and Dr. Maritato took the time to talk to me about my childrens teeth and what we needed to do. The office staff is very friendly and caring.Our previous dentist told us our 17 year old had a lot of cavaties however he did not mention my sons wisdom teeth were already in or that one cavity he filled was so deep he may require a root canal. Dr. Maritato took a lot of time showing us where the teeth had cavities and the abscess tooth that may require a root canal. When he performed the root canal my son said it was quick and did not hurt at all. I wish we would have swtich a long time ago.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Maritato and his staff.Having not been to the dentist for 6+ years due to fear from past experiences, I needed extensive dental work. Within a 6 month span, I had visited Dr. Maritato 6 times. Every procedure has been pain free, the thing I was most apprehensive about. Dr. Maritato and his staff did everything possible and made suggestions of things I could do to relax. It is easy to trust this dentist and his staff. Dr. Maritato obviously takes pride in his work, because he explains everything thoroughly and is using current technolgy for imaging and procedures. I am more than excited to know that I will never have to neglect my teeth for years again.

I like how excited Dr. Crawford gets about teeth. He always wants to show his patients what the inside of their mouth looks like with his high-tech camera and equipment. It communicates to me that he loves his profession and really cares about doing right by his patients, and that he values being open with them and showing them everything he sees going on in their mouths without making them feel like they're failing at taking care of their teeth. There is never any pressure to do things his way. He just wants his patients to be able to make informed decisions about what happens inside their mouths. Their billing office is also always very helpful.

My family and I have been coming to this office for a couple years now and we have been very happy with all of the dental treatment received. Prior to coming to Maritato I was told I needed a crown. After checking a few other offices I found that Dr Maritato can do very natural looking crowns with no metal and he does them in only one visit . I also realized that these awesome crowns cost the same amount as other offices charge for the outdated type of crowns. No hassle and taking off multiple days of work. This office has all of the newest equipment and technology and the staff and Doctor were great. I recommend this office.

I have been coming to Dr. Maritato for a number of years and always have been satisfied with all the work he has done on me. All of the procedures I have had (root canal, filling, crowns) not once have I ever been in pain or uncomfortable. They are very helpful and answer any questions I have about my teeth. I really feel like the whole staff is watching out for me and tries to keep me as comfortable and happy as possible. Dr. Maritato is a truly amazing dentist, and I strongly recommend Maritato Dental to all of my friends and family. They never will disappoint you!

I would highly recommend Maritato Dental. Their convenient hours, location and friendly staff are superb. Also there is virtually no wait time, with sometimes they or myself calling to see if I can come in earlier or later on a few occasions. You're greeted with a smile and friendly conversation by every employee through your entire visit. Dr. and his staff explain all measures of your visit thoroughly from paperwork to all dental work: pre, current and post procedure. With being an Invisalign patient they have shown great professionalism to make my teeth perfect.

I cannot believe how beautiful my new tooth looks. I was going to another dentist for practically my whole life and I could not believe how much higher quality of work Dr. Maritato did than my last dentist. I will never see another dentist again! I look forward to getting more work done with him. He and his staff are kind and funny, they made my visit a truly wonderful experience. They also provide many reminders so it is very easy to keep track of my appointments, I highly recommend you see Dr. Maritato and his staff immediately!!
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
