Our staff is fantastic! We maintain the highest levels of accreditation and pursue ongoing education to stay abreast of the latest trends in dentistry.

Russo Family Dental is a friendly and inviting dental practice that takes pride in a conservative approach to dentistry. The practice of dentistry encompasses an amazing array of services and procedures, all with a common goal; to help preserve your natural teeth as long as possible.

Our practice philosophy is simple:
- we treat our patients as if we were the one's sitting in the chair.
- we are committed to providing a lifetime of optimum oral health to our patients and strive for relationships based on mutual trust, excellent customer service and the best patient care available.
- we are focused and present. We believe each and every patient deserves our personal attention which is why we only see one patient at a time.
- we treat people, not teeth. We measure success on the quality of the relationships we have, not just the dental care we provide.
