My Practice Philosophy
After finishing my five years of post dental school graduate education, I was exposed to a handful of practices as an independent contractor and associate. That is when I came to realize that my additional education had prepared me to provide a different level of care and approach in dentistry than my fellow colleagues. I knew that the only way I would practice was to own and operate my own practice in order to provide my unique approach and deliver the highest standards of care and customer service.
As Dental Surgeon and Anesthesiologist I have a unique advantage to safely control, pain, anxiety and reduce number of visits of treatment in a very pleasant manner. My approach can be described as the most advanced, personalized, safe approach in the most comfortable and efficient manner. Owning my own practice has provided me with the ability to tailor a practice with the best equipment, staff, use the best supplies and ancillary providers I can find and trust as well as my techniques.
My objectives and goals are to treat every patient as it was a family member in need of our services. Having the best diagnostic resources, staff, facility, and equipment to be accurate, efficient, proficient and provide the highest level of satisfaction and experience.
Our practice is a full General Dental facility offering from basic hygiene and check-ups to state of the art “teeth in one sitting”, complex reconstructive implant, facial and oral cosmetic procedures and misalignment of teeth. Anesthesiology full services for the fearful, anxious, difficult or complex cases are available including nitrous oxide inhalation, oral, Intravenous or intramuscular sedation in his fully certified and inspected facility by the American Society of oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons. As an expert in the field of airway management and sleep dentistry we also offer treatment for sleep apnea without need for surgery or cumbersome CPAP mask devices. Basically if you become our patient you do not need to be referred out of our office for treatment elsewhere. Pediatric patients referred to us for special treatment are treated in the hospital setting or office depending on age and procedure. Dr. Picofazzi offers his services in his state of the art main facility in Plymouth Meeting , Pennsylvania as well as South and Central New Jersey. Dr. Picofazzi has extensive certified training and knowledge in Cosmetic and Surgical Lasers and is also Certified as a Laser Safety Officer.
