About Our Office

Welcome to The Classic Smile! We have been practicing in Medford for over twenty years and have recently moved into the historical Armory Building in Medford Square. The Classic Smile is a full service dental practice with state-of-the-art technology provided in a clean, comfortable, and modern facility. We pride ourselves in this relaxing atmosphere, which is evident when patients who have chosen to watch a video on a virtual headset during their visit, request to stay after their procedure to finish it. We treat every patient as one of our own family and, therefore, on your first visit, we perform a complete and thorough examination of not only your mouth but also your feelings and desires about your teeth. Our mission is to help educate our patients on dental care and provide recommendations to fit your needs. We explain the care that you require and answer all of your questions. We listen to you. This allows us to provide the very best dentistry that you want at a pace and price that you can afford. Our administrative team will work with you to maximize your insurance benefits and offer payment options to fit your budget. No treatment is ever performed without your full knowledge and consent. We are smile artists committed in providing you with the best and latest materials and techniques and our staff is committed to providing you with the very best service.
