When our dentist unexpectedly retired, we were worried that it would be a long process finding a new one. Several names were provided and Dr. Michael Contes was one of them. He was our first choice and we did not need to look further. We immediately felt like we were “home”. Everyone is so friendly and fun to be around that they make you forget you are there for dental work. Dr. Contes has been great for our family, this includes my parents who are in their 90’s. Between the four of us we have had a myriad of procedures done all with happy outcomes. We highly recommend Dr. Contes and his office.
