  • You have been such a great support in the care for our mother over these years. I wanted to keep her pain free and you helped us with that. The last miraculous feat was the saving of that front tooth that broke. It made me smile because she hated that her teeth were discolored. She would have LOVED that shiny white tooth!! Thank you for that and, for contributing to alzheimer's research in her name.


  • I always have an outstanding visit and just recently referred two more people who raved about the experience they had! The proper time and attention to detail is always taken on every appointment.

  • I didn’t go to the dentist for a while because I had bad experiences. Then a friend referred me to the Spa Dentistry office. I usually see Dr. Silk. I have a lot of confidence in him and am very comfortable with everyone in the office now. The office is beautiful and comfortable. Everyone is friendly and professional and always makes you feel comfortable. I had two bridges done that have worked out great! I highly recommend the dental group to anyone because they are very personable and always make me feel comfortable.

  • Just a little note of thanks for taking the time to deal with my big baby! He is terrified of the dentist and you made it a bit less scary for him. The tender pampering you and your staff offer goes a long way! Thanks a million.

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Vagnozzi Bucci Spa Dental Practice since April 2002 and I’m extremely happy. I have dental insurance that I cannot use at the office however, I still choose to go there. The whole staff is superior in their technical abilities, attitude and professionalism. Every procedure I have had done there has exceeded my expectations. Painless dentistry at its finest. I can not use enough adjectives to describe and praise these doctors and professional staff. It’s not the dentistry you remember from your childhood; this is the dental practice of the future.

    Gayle D.

  • I just wanted to thank all of you for taking such good care of my aunt while she and my uncle were in the states from Australia. They were thrilled with her new teeth and told us you were amazing! I know medical/dental care is no where near as good in the U.K. or Australia as it is here, so I am glad if she had to have treatment, it was done by you. Thanks you again; I owe you one, but hope you don’t need any physical therapy anytime soon...

  • I want to thank you for going out of your way countless times to correct and fix my two permanent crowns. It is rare to meet a person of your character. I am lucky to have you and your magnificent staff care for me.
