#1 dentistry
Very friendly office. Knowledgeable staff. Clean and inviting space. They go above and beyond to accommodate their patients, and pay a lot of attention to each patient's individual needs and concerns. I've been coming here for something like 5 years now and I simply can't imagine going to any other dentist's than Dr. Nick and his team. Calcaterra Family Dentistry is the best!

A dream come true for the worried medical student!
I came in as a new patient with multiple known dental caries, one of which was quite large and required extensive, highly delicate drilling and repair. As a medical student, I tend to overly scrutinize my options when it comes to healthcare, and it becomes difficult to find providers whose clinical judgement and skill I can wholeheartedly trust. Those concerns dissipated the second I met Dr. Nick. Here’s what I loved most about my most recent visit: 1. The staff are warm, welcoming, and genuine. They greet you with a smile and have a fantastic attitude that helps put you at ease. 2. Dr. Nick is an all-around fantastic dentist—clinically knowledgeable, technically skilled, and has an excellent bedside manner. I enjoyed our wonderfully nerdy discussion on the mechanism of action of pilocarpine, and picked up some pharmacology pearls that will surely help me during my upcoming residency. I was also tremendously grateful that he was able to save my decaying molar from needing a root canal. He did a very thorough job with my teeth, and I could tell that he was taking his time to ensure the very best results. I cannot emphasize enough how much this meant to me! 3. I didn’t feel a thing! Yes, really! This was the most comfortable experience at the dentist, ever. Dr. Nick has a trick when it comes to injecting the lidocaine that works wonders. And after that, it’s smooth sailing. I was more than pleasantly surprised. In short, coming to Calcaterra Family Dentistry was the single best decision I have made regarding the care of my teeth. If you’re a Yale student, like myself, and looking for a great dentist in the area, I would highly recommend this practice. Be prepared to look forward to trips to the dentist from now on!

Excellent experience with sedation dentistry!
I am the type of patient that has serious issues handling any amount of dental work due to high sensitivity. I cannot stand the feeling of dental cleanings or even the feeling of my electronic toothbrush! I had so many terrible dental experiences that when I moved to New Haven, I put off seeing a dentist for three years (ugh), until it was absolutely necessary. Dr. Calcaterra and his staff were nothing but kind, professional, and completely understanding of my anxiety regarding pain. After discussion, I opted to have an extraction as well as many fillings completed under sedation, which was really amazing. I should also point out that I had this work done during one of the most stressful times of my life so I cannot emphasize how important it was to me that everything ran smoothly. I did not experience any pain or discomfort during the procedures at all. Under my insurance plan, the procedure cost me less than the two fillings and bogus sealants I had done prior. Both my husband and I would highly recommend Calcaterra dentistry to anyone looking for a new dentist!

First Visit
Today was my first Visit to this office. I appreciated how nice and welcoming the staff were. They helped put me at ease for a procedure I'm having done in a couple of months. Dr was very good at explaining everything to me. I have bad dentist phobia but am very comfortable so far...will repost in a couple of months after my extractions and fillings under iv sedation and let you know how it goes...I'm not gonna lie...I am nervous!!!
