Your first visit to Essex Street Dental Medicine establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During the first visit, we make sure to obtain important background information, like your medical history, and give you time to get to know your doctor. To understand what to expect for your first visit to our practice, please read through this page. You'll find all the practical information you need, such as a map and directions to our office, practice hours, payment policies and more. There's also background information about our committed staff and our first visit procedures. You can even save some time at your first visit by printing out and completing the patient forms in advance of your appointment.

Our Philosophy

Below we enumerate some of the beliefs that govern our practice of dental medicine.

Doesn't this sound like the care you deserve?

Your Time is Valuable. We appreciate your choosing us to provide for your oral health needs. We schedule generous time for your appointments. We do not overbook or double book our schedule. You will not be kept waiting more than ten minutes for your appointment without an explanation, an offer to reschedule, or some form of compensation.

Our commitment to you doesn't end at our office door. In the event of pain or emergency, Dr. Casiglia can always be reached personally by cell phone. You will never wait more than 24 hours for an emergency appointment.

We value your trust and loyalty. We understand and appreciate that your faith in us and your referrals to friends and family are what truly define a successful practice. To show our gratitude, we will issue you an account credit for each individual that joins our practice as a result of your referral. These are cumulative and there is no limit to the amount you may accrue. Ask Lucy for details.

We appreciate prompt payment. To show our appreciation for timely settling of cash account balances, a 5% courtesy will be applied if payment in full is made at the time of treatment.

We back up our work. Dental work can represent a significant financial investment. We stand behind our work with a warranty program where we will replace or repair damage or failure. This means that we may replace work that does not meet our standards -- even if it is not causing you a problem and you have not noticed it. You need only consistently attend your recall appointments, and we will monitor the work for you.

These are some of our practice philosophies. We hold ourselves to very high standards and our only goal is your complete satisfaction. We believe that these concepts exemplify the commitment we have to our patients.
