I broke a tooth and knocked the fillings out of my front teeth and really wanted it fixed right away. They got me in the next day and the work is pretty good but I have super sensitive teeth and they didn't care that it hurt me after I went home they said that what they did didn't warrant anything other than advil. I do not like being treated as if I was a druggie I would have kept these people as my dentist but they didn't even bother talking to me just had the secretary say sorry can't help you.

I have been a patient of Dr. Driscoll since he took over Dr. Fox's practice (at least 20 years ago). I really appreciate the care and compassion they show here and there amazing professionalism. He has never suggested any treatment I did not need and his recommendations for courses of action for my dental hygiene have been easy to follow and my checkups are always fast and easy. His staff is very personable and the office warm and welcoming.

I've had an excellent experience everytime I visit this office. I love having the same higienist on every visit. It makes me feel as if I have a personal dental assistant. Dr. Oliver is always kind and caring when he enters the room. His mix of professionalism and care are second to none. I look forward to my next visit to the office. Keep up the Great Work Doc!!!!

The doctors and clinical staff were very courteous and gave me helpful advice on how to keep my teeth healthy. Whenever I come in for an appointment, I have the opportunity to speak with the doctor about any problems or questions that I might have and they do an excellent job of answering any of them. The whole staff is very friendly and accomodating.

The staff at Enlighten Dental always makes me feel like I am important, and that means more than they will ever know! I appreciate the thoroughness, and thoughtfulness of everyone. My hygienist took special time to demonstrate the correct way to use my sonicare toothbrush, and that helped so much! Dr. Driscoll and his staff are simply the best! :).

I have been extremely impressed with Dr. Perrotta and her staff. Appointments are easy to schedule (or reschedule) and everyone in the office is always extremely friendly and professional. I have (and will continue to) recommend Dr. Perrotta to my friends and family for everything from regular teeth cleanings to Invisalign!

Dr Taylor was very thorough and professional. She has a wonderful way of providing expert information and advise. I was very happy with my treatment. She did not rush and spent adequate time explaining her observations. I truly can say it was the best dental visit I have ever had!!

Dr. Driscoll is the best! He is out of network on my insurance but the quality of care is well worth the few extra dollars. He take his time to explain and perform all dental treatments. I am happy I decided to leave the large practices in town for a more personalized care.

Dr. Kelly and Dr. Cobham are the best!!!They made me feel like they really cared about helping me and giving my family top shelf service. Super friendly and professional atmosphere. They are perfect for a family that is needing and looking for a family dentist.
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
