I was very pleased with the entire staff and Dr. Boncanegra. They were all so friendly and helpful. I never felt anything from start to finish and have had no pain afterwards. He is absolutely great and cares about his patients. He explained everything he had to do in detail. I have never been to a better dentist and the first time I've never had any pain. Thanks to the entire staff!!! Brenda Williams, Ft. Myers, Fl.

Patient Review By Naomi T
I had a strong fear of going to the dentist, but after I lost a filling I realized that I had to do something about it. Recognizing my fear, the entire staff at Porto Fino supported me with soothing words and a strategy that involved gentle progress and anesthetic. Following the cap of my unfilled tooth, the real work had to be done - getting me to come to the dentist more often than once a decade. Here, my hero, Sarah D’Andrea, RDH, played a key role. With firm but gentle guidance and some ether, she brought me through a two stage complete cleaning. Today - was my first routine visit. I went with some fear, because I knew that I was not scheduled for anesthetic; however, the fear was misplaced. My gums are much healthier than they were, due to the previous cleaning and home-care guidance, and the work that needed to be done was soothed by good music and excellent professional care from Sarah. I scheduled my next appointment already, and I am not afraid at all. In fact, I look forward to it.

Patient Review By Rick G
I have been a patient of Dr. Bocanegra for several years. My experiences have been exceptional. My only regret is the I did not discover him 10 years ago. He is a "straight shooter". He recommends procedures only as needed, and goes out of his way to ensure that you remain comfortable as he performs the procedures. I'll never see any other dentist.
