Your First Visit
Your first visit to our office typically includes an X-ray that allows us to view the structure of the jaw, the position of any teeth that have not yet erupted, malformed roots, and tooth decay.
The initial visit involves a review of your medical history. When you share your medical history, be sure to provide complete, up-to-date information on your health. Inform our office if you have experienced recent hospitalization or surgery, or if you have recently been ill. Also tell us the names, doses, and frequency of any medications you are taking — whether prescription or over-the-counter products — and the name of your physician. Inform us of any changes in your health or medications. This information will help us select the safest and most effective method of treatment for you.
We encourage regular checkups for individuals age four and up. Regular checkups are important to:
- Check for problems that you might not see or feel
- Find early signs of decay
- Treat oral health problems early, while they are still manageable
Regular checkups include a thorough cleaning, polishing, and an oral exam by the doctor. During the oral exam, your doctor will check the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue, and will check your existing fillings and restorations because constant pressure from chewing, grinding, or clenching can cause them to wear away, chip, or crack.
Regular checkup appointments typically take about 45 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.

KIND WORDS FROM OUR PATIENTS
Dr. Tom and his fabulous hygienist, Cathy, provide wonderful care for my family! I have referred many friends and colleagues who have been quite pleased with the services at this practice. The music is great too!Donna
Very professional, great environment , recommend highly.Brian
Dr. Thomas Pizzolo and his hygienist Cathy are knowledgeable professionals. What I liked- answered all my questions, clean office, good attitude, put me at ease. Additionally, I liked the fact that Dr. Pizzolo called me about my concerns regarding orthodontic treatment that I'm about to get from my orthodontist.
It takes that extra step of personal approach to each patient to be different from the corporate world.
I'm not really good at going to the doctors or especially dentists. This time I'm actually planning on going back for my next appointment in May and I'm looking forward to it.
I have been a patient for roughly 25 years, since I was a small child, and have always had pleasant and positive experiences during my many visits to Dr. Pizzolo's office. The entire staff is friendly, professional and extremely skilled at what they do.
I have never dreaded going to the dentist and I contribute that to the people here and knowing that I have always been in good, capable hands. I have recommended this family practice to many, and will continue to do so!Chris
Outstanding Customer Service! My dentist is out of town and I had a dental emergency. She called me and told me to come and see Dr. Pizzolo. Both Dr. Pizzolo and his office staff were friendly, kind and patient. What a lovely reminder that customer service and compassion are still a core value for people. Thank you for treating me like part of the family.Suzanne
I have visited Dr. Pizzolo and Dr. Elashmawy on several occasions and have found them to be very professional, understanding and knowledgeable. They listened to my questions and concerns. Appointments are easily made and they are "on time" with my appointments. Their staff is very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend them.Janet
