Kathy W., Boston, MA

I am so happy to have my smile back. A freak accident in 2008 damaged the appearance of my teeth and it impacted my personality. Dr. Bufo and his team gave me back my confidence to smile, and smile often. Thank you!

Kerstin V. -- Boston

I am an anxious patient. Seeing a dentist is a very difficult endeavor for me. When I first entered the office of Dr. Mathew, I already felt that his team knew how to deal with anxieties. It starts with with the staff treating you properly. Dr. Mathew's took great care of me and I would recommend him to another patients with anxieties.

I would highly recommend this practice. I showed up early and they were able to see me right away. The hygenist, Nicole, was able to both keep me engrossed in conversation and do a great job with the cleaning. Dr. Bufo was very kind and very knowledgeable. The office staff was also very friendly and helpful. If you want great dentistry with a "small practice", personal feel, try BBDC!
