Richard J. Salvatore, Sr. said just like the dental practice itself has moved through the generations, so have the patients. He even treats a patient who's been coming to the dental office since before he was born.
"I still have patients that originally started with my father," said Richard J. Salvatore, Sr.
The office has seven operatories and two hygienists. While the values and approach to dentistry have remained largely unchanged through the decades, there have been some upgrades.
"Technology-wise we stay up with the technology," said Richard J. Salvatore, Sr., who said he does all general dental procedures, including root canals and cosmetics.
Richard J. Salvatore, Sr. said he's pleased with the reputation he's built.
"I wouldn't do anything different, I wouldn't change a thing. I've been doing it 40 years and it feels like four. I enjoy it so much and don't have any plans of retiring," said Richard J. Salvatore, Sr.
Salvatore Dental participates with about 90 percent of insurance companies and with the addition of Richard J. Salvatore, Jr., will be offering evening and weekend hours.
