Sarah P

“Shoreline Dental Care is great! I became a patient there after seeing an ad for quick braces. I wanted to straighten my teeth before my wedding (9 months away at the time) and Dr. Tartagni & Cameron made that happen. My questions or concerns were always answered and taken care of. Cameron did an awesome job with the braces. Everyone is very nice and I am so happy I went there, as well as with the outcome of my new smile! Thank you so much!”

Amir Z

“My kids love coming to Shoreline Dental Care in Milford. They always feel comfortable with everyone. The staff makes you feel at ease and they explain everything they are going to do before they work on you. I had major work performed in my mouth and I love the results. I smile all the time. Nancy is a great hygienist.”

Who know a visit to the dentist could be pain free??? Let me start by saying: “I don’t like going to the Dentist”. So, needless to say I did not go as often as I should have. My last dentist was horrible. He didn’t do a good job. He did not even try to make me feel comfortable in any way. I finally had enough and decided to find another dentist. When I called Dr. Tartagni’s office to get more information, the lady on the other end was so friendly and helpful, that I made an appointment on the spot. That was the best move I ever made! I was very nervous the day of my first appointment, but as soon as I walked in the door, everybody welcomed me with a friendly word and a warm smile. Dr. Tartagni and his assistant made me feel extremely comfortable. He’s always upbeat and positive, all of which makes me even more relaxed. Dr. Tartagni was very understanding of my needs and I have never felt more confidence in a dentist.”

Christopher N

“From the time that I booked my first appointment with Shoreline Dental Care, Dr. Tartagni and his fantastic team of administrators and hygienists have made me feel welcome, respected, and cared for. The pride they take in their work and the care they provide is evident as soon as you walk in the door. Additionally, Dr. Tartagni is continually bettering his practice by researching and incorporating the latest techniques, technologies, and methods into his dentistry; I’ve never had a painless analgesic shot until today at my first root canal! The entire experience was so much better because of the Shoreline Dental team’s patience, compassion, and diligence. I would recommend Shoreline Dental Care to anyone!”

Dwayne H

“I required a tooth to be removed. I called the office and was assisted with an assurance of help and concern. I was seen within a reasonable amount of time and my issue was resolved. There was no pain, and I was handled efficiently and my time was valued from the initial phone call, to the instructions on care afterwords – it was great.”

Thomas H

“Today’s visit with Shoreline Dental Care was a phenomenal one. I began treatment at the end of October 2009. The beginning process was a rough one but Dr. Joseph and staff were great. Since then and through today, Dr. Joseph has been right there for me each and every step of the way. They have at all time answered each and every question that I have had no matter how big or small. His dental assistants are the most professional and compassionate individuals that I have ever met. Kudos to Maria, Reina and Chris on a job very well done. Each and every time I came in for an appointment Sarah, Kristen and most of all Sandi went out of their way to always make sure that I was always taken care of in a prompt and most professional manner, always making sure every detail was covered. Last but not certainly least, I want to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Joseph for everything he has done for me in making sure that everything would be letter perfect in the end and that has done. Dr. Joseph, you are truly and awesome role model to those in your field and I am proud to have you as my doctor. Thanks for everything.”

Mary S

“I have been a patient of Dr. Tartagni for more years than I would like to admit. My visit today was to remove a tooth and prepare for bridge work. This visit wasn’t any different than any other procedures I have had in the past; totally painless, quick and stressless. Everything a dentist visit should be. In addition, the staff at Shoreline Dental is caring, efficient and always willing to help. I have and continue to recommend Dr. “T” to my family and friends.”

Kimberly P

“I cannot say enough about this entire team. They were terrific! I have been scared to have dental work since I was young. I elected for twilight sleep and it was the best thing I ever did. I was taken care of and had no pain at all. The entire staff at Shoreline is professional and understanding. My mouth has never been in better shape. Thank you Shoreline Dental”
