    The team at EPIC Dental did a great job on my 4 crowns and 1 implant. They were always pleasant, helpful, and professional. Dr. Chidella has a great personality and great skill in making your new teeth fit like a glove. You can't go wrong by going to EPIC Dental for your prosthodontic needs.

    From the moment that I first met Dr. Chedella at his dentist chair, I knew I was in good hands. I had implants started in another country but not finished due to the pandemic. Dr. Chedella did a perfect job in completing the procedure. After waiting 20 months in limbo, I can't thank you enough Dr. Chedella.

    Nice friendly staff. The doctor gave practical, easy advice on every day changes I could make to help my TMJ problem - and it worked! One of the few specialists I’ve seen in years who I didn’t feel was trying to push an expensive device or unnecessary procedure on me - it was refreshing.
