I have had many dental procedures in the past with Dr. Bartolomei. He not only takes the time to thoroughly explain what you need done but answers all questions before he proceeds. I like him most because of his ethics. You can tell that he really cares and wants to provide the best possible solution for you. I have been to other dentists that try and sell you procedures that you just don't need. Dr. Bartolomei gives you other options. I call him the dentist for scared people. I have had many bad experiences with other dentists and was anxious everytime I had to see one. Not with Dr. Bartolomei. Yes it took some time for me to trust a dentist but now, I have no anxiety when scheduling a dental appointment.
