    After moving to the Bridgewater area it became evident that we needed to find a dentist closer to our new home. After going to the same dentist for the past 20 years we knew this would not be an easy task. A friend recommended this practice to us and we could not have found a better match for our needs. Dr. DeStefano and Dr. Raziano and the entire staff could not have made us feel more welcomed and confident that we had made the right choice. Going to the dentist feels very comfortable and we feel we are in the hands of competent professionals.

    It is a comfort to know that my dental group has my best interest at heart. I can always count on the best care from Dr. D and her competent staff of hygienists and administrative personnel. My visits continue to be a very pleasant experience!

    Dr. DeStefano is always on time with her appointments with me. She always listens and addresses her patient concerns with her professionalism. She has a great sense of humor!

    As first-time patients at Dr. Raziano and Dr. DeStefano’s we were very pleased and content. The office visit was VERY thorough and professional without sacrificing the “personal” touch. (They welcomed my family as a family and not a patient number) We were very relieved to have the confidence and trust with Dr. Raziano after being with our previous dentist for over 30 years! I am glad we chose Dr. Raziano and DeStefano. Thank you!


    I might just be the wimpiest dental patient EVER!!! As a young child I had horrible dental experiences. Dr. D worked patiently with me to overcome these fears. I now book and KEEP my appointments! I have less anxiety about going to the dentist and I have Teresa and her wonderful staff to thank.
