Robert Ferrera, D.D.S.
I would like to welcome you to this dental journey of mine that began at the age of ten. Ten may seem a little young to know what you wanted to be when you grow up, but that is when it began for me. I spent the younger part of my life dreaming what could be and the rest my life trying to become the best dentist possible. Both at my skills as a dentist and the relationships with my team and my patients.
My goal as a dentist is to provide uncompromising care to all of my patients. I strive for dental excellence through first class care and hospitality. As a team we pride ourselves in changing our patients lives for the better, one patient at a time. I believing in educating my patients in current research and technologies. I invite you to participate in the decisions about your care through information and options to achieve your optimal dental health for a lifetime.
