Read What Dr. Orrico's Patients say about The Practice

I can not say enough wonderful things about Dr Orrico and his staff. They are helpful, kind, professional and efficient. Recently I have had multiple interactions with both Jen and Allison for a dental implant. The respect and teamwork is like no other. I couldn’t be any happier with the decision I made to have the implant done. Dr Orrico is so incredibly gentle, skilled and patient he was able to use the very tooth he extracted to hold the space where the implant would eventually be placed. Now that the implant is in, it couldn’t look or feel more natural. I’ve read other reviews that complain about cost but you must remember that you get what you pay for and in my opinion this has been the bargain of the decade. Flawless work with minimal discomfort, I’m not even sure how it is possible but it certainly is with Dr Orrico and his team! Thank you for all that you do.

It’s a joy to eat again!  After a lifetime of periodontal problems and oral surgeries, the biggest and best decision I ever made was to have dental implants.  I am so thrilled with the denture and implants and am amazed at how well everything fits!  It’s so easy to chew, and most of all, to enjoy my food and smile again with ease.  Most times, I forget that anything’s been done — it seems so natural, like having my own teeth again! I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Orrico. He was gentle, caring, explained everything in detail, and made sure all my questions and concerns were addressed before the procedure.  I was very impressed with the state-of-the-art equipment and his wonderful, professional staff, who make you feel like family.  I couldn’t be happier – this experience has been life changing!

I have found a renewed beginning in my life. After a lifetime of fearing dentists, and a history of various cleanings due to periodontal issues, those problems have been eliminated. I made the best decision and contacted Dr. Orrico. Together we decided on a plan that has lifted my life and improved my health. The plan of denture implants was the best decision. Now I smile without fear of shocking looks, and enjoy eating favorite foods again. Having a positive dental experience, one without pain, was wonderful. Being treated with kindness by Dr. Orrico and his amazing staff was a great experience. The professional staff would do whatever they could to make your experience life changing. Dr. Orrico has given me the best life changing experience one could wish for. I could not be happier with my smile. It is great to return to the world of smiles.
