"Dr. Mahale & all of her staff are fabulous. They were all so very kind & welcoming to me. This was my first visit to Ruocco Dental & I could not have been more pleased. My dentist of 35 years just recently retired & I was hoping to find a dentist that could live up to my expectations. I have to say that Dr. Mahale far exceeded. She was so thorough. She took the time to explain everything to me. The clarity of their xrays, pictures & large screens that they are displayed on are state of the art. I don't usually write reviews but wanted to acknowledge Ruocco Dental. Thank you Dr. Mahale. I have found a new dental home for another 35 years."
