A. - Fall River, MA

Well-run efficient office with high degree of professionalism; no overbooking so the patient is seen at the scheduled time (I’ve never waited more than 5 minutes); reasonable, flexible payment plan; I like the predictability of knowing that I deal with the same dental assistant at each visit. Dr. Ponte provides meticulous dental care with the work ethic and integrity of a perfectionist. He is an excellent diagnostician and problem-solver who does no more and no less than what is required to accommodate the patient’s dental needs. I’ve been treated in his office for several years, most recently for crown work. Not only is each crown aesthetically pleasing, but Dr. Ponte was able to remedy the stressor points that I was putting on my teeth and jaw. I’ve stopped clenching and grinding my teeth.
