A Message From Dr. Catoggio:
“It is an honor and privilege to work collaboratively with my patients to achieve the smiles they desire. Dentistry has come such a long way in recent years and so often I find that my patients are amazed by what can be accomplished in so few appointments. By incorporating innovative technology such as advanced digital photography, ceramic restorations and custom dental composites, dramatic changes can be achieved in a short time. Dentistry is an art; one that deals with the shapes, colors and contours that make smiles beautiful. It is in this medium that I love to work. All too often, I meet patients who are self-conscious about their smile and find themselves compensating in other ways. Our smiles make up much of our identity and we should be proud to show them off. I look forward each day to knowing that by working closely with my patients, together we can create a profound result.”
