We would like to welcome you to our office. We take great satisfaction in helping you maintain optimal oral health and our practice is devoted to comprehensive and preventive patient care.

Throughout our website, you will find information about our practice, the procedures we provide, and dentistry in general. Please explore and learn as we believe that our patients should have as much information as possible in order to make important, informed decisions regarding their oral health and treatment option.

Our Philosophy

The goal of everyone in our office is to provide you and your entire family with the best dental care available. We promise to provide the finest quality care while striving to make your dental experience as comfortable as possible.

We believe that it is important for you to feel comfortable with your dentist and therefore provide comprehensive dental treatments including root canals, crown and bridge and dentures. If we do need to refer you to a specialist, you can be confident that they are exceptionally qualified in their field and will treat you as comfortably and professionally as we would have them treat us.

Your knowledge of dentistry, the care you are receiving and how to care for your mouth and teeth are very important to us. We encourage you to ask about anything you may have heard about dentistry, from new materials and techniques to modern methods of ensuring your health.

Our exam includes more than just checking your teeth for cavities. We will discuss your medical history and examine all of the soft tissues of your mouth for cancer along with your teeth and gums. Your overall health is important to us!

Our patients are our most important asset, and we strive to develop long-lasting, trusting relationships with all of our patients. Your referrals are welcome and appreciated. We look forward to seeing you!


See What Patients Say About Us

  • "Dear Dr. Mike, Venus, Georgia, and Gang,
    Thank you for the great dental work you've given me and my family over the years - but more importantly, for the warm welcomes, big smiles, and the dignity I leave with after each visit. These things kept me coming back til I could smile at the world again! Your practice is very special."
  • "Dear Dr. Tepedino,
    Just a little note to say thank you for all you have done for me. You are always considerate of my fears and you are always concerned. I may not see you very often (which is a good thing I guess) but you never forget me or the problems I have had. You show an incredible concern for your patients. You are kind and have a way of making people feel comfortable. I speak for myself and I am sure your other patients would say the same. You took the time to squeeze me into your schedule when I was in pain and you take the time to help me when I need it. You never make me feel like I am a burden. I can't thank you enough. It is very hard to find a doctor or dentist, :) that knows their patients and cares. With your office not only have I found you but your staff is always very pleasant and they make me feel very comfortable as well. It is not easy to find an office where the entire staff is kind, patient, and considerate. Thank you again for everything."

  • "Dear Dr. Tepedino,
    Whenever I would receive an invitation to some dreadful social event that I did not wish to attend, I would say, "I'd rather have a root canal". Never having had a root canal, I really didn't know if what I was saying was actually true.
    Well, this past summer I needed a root canal. I said, "Uh-oh, God is going to punish me for all of those times when I said I'd rather have a root canal than go to some social event." But that did not happen at all. When I came in for my root canal, I didn't even know that you had started and were halfway through until you told me! I comfortably watched TV the whole time, as the entire procedure was completely painless.
    Now I can truly say that I would rather have a root canal! I just want to thank you for making an honest woman out of me."

  • "I appreciate being a patient of yours all these years because you have always made me feel at ease. This last visit was the same in that it didn't take long and mainly no pain but also my teeth look better.
    Thank you so much"
    Mary G.
  • "Dr. Tepedino,
    Thank you for making an unpleasant experience a pleasant one! If that's possible, going to a dentist.
    I would recommend you to anyone!
    Also, your girls in the office were all as helpful and nice as could be!"
    Cathy E.
  • "Dear Dr. Tepedino and Wonderful Staff!
    Thank you for the many years you have cared for my family, from my (now) grown children's first check up to the care my husband and I need as older (!) adults.
    I unhesitantly recommend you to my friends because you all are the BEST!"
    Sue D.

    Thank you for all your help transforming my smile for the big day, and for understanding my bridezilla moments!

    Thank you so much for taking my braces off. You are such a funny person, and you made me feel welcome. I hope that I see you again someday."
  • "We can't express in words how much we appreciate your office and your staff. You have welcomed us and always make us feel uniquely welcomed. We wish you, your staff, and your families abundant blessings for 2019 and beyond!
    Merry Christmas and A Wonderful New Year"

  • "Dear Dr. Tepedino,
    Thank you for the warm welcome letter. You and your staff are very refreshing. Sometimes it's good to get outside your own zip code.
    After recently losing my mother and 2 brothers, you've given me a reason to smile again. And... "A Smile you can smile about." ~ You guys are terrific!
    (^I wrote that slogan for you!)"
