Today is a Saturday, a day off at Center for Progressive Dentistry and I have a few moments to reflect on my first 4 months as the new owner of the practice. My experience has been overwhelmingly positive. I cannot help but be exceedingly thankful that I came across this opportunity. What has made this so special? Well, let me tell you…
Aside from the beautiful dental office, the amazing team (Joanne, Bertha, Kathy, Stevie, and Julie), and the most grateful patient base a dentist could ask for, one more thing puts this practice over the top- Dr. Santelli. “Dr. Joe” (as many of his loyal patients call him) has been practicing dentistry for over 44 years. During that time, tens of thousands of patients have been treated with the utmost care and skill.
Working alongside Dr. Santelli has been a pleasure for me. One reason I am so thrilled to be in this position is that we can offer our patients so much more than either one of us could by ourself. As dentists, Dr. Santelli and I have many overlapping interests, but each one can also offer services the other cannot (or has chosen not to focus on). Dr. Santelli has been placing mini dental implants for 20 years. I (Dr. Scardella) place standard or conventional dental implants. Due to the fact that I have also been trained in mini dental implants and Dr. Santelli was first trained in standard dental implants, we can discuss cases together and agree upon the best possible treatment for each patient. This unique combination of training will not be found many other places.
Fortunately for the practice, Dr. Santelli has kept up-to-date with many modern dental technologies, making visiting the dentist more comfortable than ever before. As a young dentist myself, I am aware of even more new technologies and procedures to improve the patient experience and increase the number of services we can offer. It all amounts to a comprehensive general dentistry practice where the whole family can be treated. Most procedures and cases can be completed under one roof, minimizing the number of visits and cost of treatment. That being said, we are fortunate to have top quality specialists nearby, such as pediatric dentists, endodontists, orthodontists, oral surgeons, and periodontists. The close relationship with local specialists ensures that our patients will receive the best possible care.
