My husband was referred to Dr. Belinfante because he was having an issue with a tooth that needed to be extracted and he also needed an implant a well.. to say that his experience was pleasant would be an understatement.. his experience in his words was AWESOME!!!. He hasn't experience any pain and the next day to our surprise Dr. Belinfante himself actually called to check on him.. (sidenote: No doctor that I'm aware of let alone a surgeon has ever called his patients personally to check on them after a procedure and it was on a Saturday) so with that being said.. we are recommending our friend and family to Dr. Belinfante for all of their dental needs.. he is absolutely the best .. Thank you Dr. Belinfante for a job well done!!

Dr. Wundele, III agreed to see me immediately to perform a tooth extraction bc I was in pain. I have major anxiety about going to “the dentist ,” but Dr. Wundele made certain I was comfortable and felt no pain during the extraction. He did such an excellent job that - in spite of having infection, afterward I had almost no swelling and and very little pain that his prescribed pain pill eliminated. The office staff accepted Medicare and my dental insurance. They filed my claims for me. Though I’d never been to this office before, Dr. Wundele and his staff had to stay late on a Friday to help me, and no one mentioned this. The only reason I knew was that I saw all the staff leaving after I left. If you are afraid of any dental procedure or of pain, but require excellence in skill and knowledge, Dr. Wundele, III is the doctor for you.
