What our patients are saying

My personal experience and why I feel so good about Dr. Carroccia and his team: Because, honestly all I remember was walking in and seeing Diane’s smiling face, and next thing I knew, I was at home sucking on a peanut butter fudge shake from sonic. After my milkshake I slept for a while and woke up to almost no soreness. Awesome! Now I have a lot of things in my mind for my mouth!

From day one Dr. Carroccia talked to me and let me know everything and was upfront about it. I had a wisdom tooth pulled and a root canal. I was real worried because at the time my ins would not cover it. After talking with the Dr. he made some phone calls and got it fixed. Regardless he would have had his money but he went the extra mile and made it happen for me. I was sedated for my work. He gave my pills for the night before and morning of. It mellowed me out and it was like going to sleep. All I remember is parts of the ride home. The whole team here has been nothing but helpful. My wife and my self will be returning our business here.

Personally, I do not remember much, but I have had no additional problems with the work done. Also, it meant a lot to me when Dr. Carroccia called my home several hours after my sedation to make sure that all was well and to let me know how surgery went. I felt very taken care of. Overall it was a great experience!

Having a lot of dental work to be performed, I elected the sedation. They were very nice and informative. The only thing I remember was having asked if I would like a blanket. Very good experience, would recommend to all.

Dr.Carroccia and ALL of his staff are really friendly and sincere. Very caring and concerned about the patient’s physical and emotional well-being. The sedation treatment was a great experience for me. I am so glad this is an option.

I have a big fear of the Dentist. I went to the Dentist because I need my teeth and that was important to me. When I went in I was a handful to handle. This was my first time having sedation and what an experience. They should have done this 20 years ago. I was happy with the results and the staff was wonderful. When my Dentist retired, I will go to Dr. Carroccia, anxiety-free Dentist is the way to go. I am gald I had a good dentist all these years and I am glad I am not by myself when I say thank you for a job well done and a beautiful smile.

I had a bad tooth that was causing bad breath and some pain. I had a root canal several years earlier and due to the pain had decided not to go through another root canal. My wife noticed an ad for pain free dentistry and I decided to try it. I came in and was sedated and when I awoke everything was completed and no pain. This is definitely the way to have my teeth worked on.

Dr.Tony took great care of me during sedation because I came out feeling great and I don’t remember anything during the procedure at all. Dr. Tony kept me in great hands. Thank you Dr. Tony for making me feel better and for making my visit great!

Best dental experience I’ve EVER had. Dr. C & staff went out of their way to make me feel at ease from the very beginning. I needed extensive work done and chose to have sedation dentistry. They explained the procedure exactly as performed. I felt 0, none, zip, nada pain!!! I would recommend this type of dentistry to anyone who is anxious & needs extensive work done. I’m so thankful for Dr. C & staff.

When I came into Dr. Tony’s office, I was a very scared person. I wanted to leave. After talking to Dr. Tony and his staff, I had all the confidence in the world to make myself look & feel better. I give Dr. Tony & staff my appreciation for caring the way they do. I came in as a “chicken” and left as a rooster!!! Thank you all very much for making me look & feel better.

I never felt anything.

I did not feel a thing during the sedation/anxiety dentistry procedure. Now I feel better about my appearance and ability to eat anything I want.

Everyone is so pleasant. I feel more at ease with the staff at this dental office. I didn’t even use the sedation procedure this time.

After a terrible dental experience I was so afraid, I would cry days before any dental appointment. Going through with an appointment was not always possible for me, due to my fears. On the night before my sedation apt. I cried as usual but the anxiety/sedation medicine I got helped me get a good nights sleep. The morning of the procedure is nothing but a blank. I remember NOTHING!! Not of the procedure itself either! It is awesome and I definitely recommend it to anyone with a fear of dental work. This dentist and team have done a terrific job and I am forever grateful to them all.

I was so terrified of dentist I can’t put it into words all because of an experience as a child. The day before my procedure I thought about putting it off many times. But continuing on, my husband kept me going. It was an amazing thing I don’t remember even going. I woke up at home, secure, with everything done I could not believe it. I don’t remember any pain. I have told many people how pleasant a dentist visit was.

This has been such a blessing. Chris can eat steak, candy bars, etc… now. He is no longer in pain. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Chris’ wife. P.S. your team was very helpful and positive.

I’ve always been afraid of dentists, but no more. I had about 2 hours of dental work completed, and I don’t remember a thing. I woke up in my own bed later that night and never experienced any pain throughout the entire experience. I will definitely do it again.

My personal experience and why I feel so good about Dr. Carroccia and his team: They are very professional, caring, understanding of your fear so they try to make you feel at home. When my orthodontist told me that I have to removed 2 molds, I was already upset. I waited one month before I had to do it. Dr. Carroccia reminded me about the sedation and it was the best thing I have ever done. Do not remember or felt anything. Dr. Carroccia and his team are the best and for that reason my kids and my husband we all come here. I have referred him to my friends. Thank-you guys for making all my visits just like being at home with friends.

My personal experience and why I feel so good about Dr. Carroccia and his team: Polite and professional. Dr. Carroccia did a very good job and I was pleased with the outcome & had been well informed from my completion of dental care.

The experience was wonderful. I didn’t remember a thing. Everyone was so nice & I felt very welcomed.

The days were good. I had the best night sleep ever. The staff was friendly and helpful with all my needs. They walked me through the entire process during my first visit, called to remind me of my appointment and Dr. Carroccia called to check on me at home after the procedure. I found my new dentist and tell everyone I know, who is looking for a dentist, that he is the ‘the man.

My personal experience has been extremely varied. Years ago I had good insurance with a previous job. They gave me a good amount of coverage for my dental care needs. However, the dentist I went to kept sending me to a specialist for a number of root canals that I personally felt were not necessary. They performed them on teeth that I felt were beyond the need for root canals. They needed to be pulled. But, unfortunately they maxed out my insurance so I was unable to get the final work I needed done. So I lived with teeth damaged from root canals for a number of years, while my impacted wisdom teeth kept damaging my back teeth. I always felt ashamed to go to a dentist after what happened because I was afraid to hear how bad the damage would be by now. But, after the pain became a nuisance and it was apparent I needed to see someone, I talked to Dr.Carroccia. We have been friends for some time, so I trusted him to be honest with me and tell me the truth about how bad things had gotten and what needed to be done. His team worked with my insurance as best they could, and helped me get serious work done. I had 10 teeth pulled at one time. They gave me the sedation dentistry work that I pretty much slept through the whole way. I was sore for a couple of days, like anyone would be. But they gave me plenty of help and I was back to work the next week. Pretty quick I think for the massive work they did. They helped me realize that I didn’t have to be ashamed for how bad my mouth situation had gone. They didn’t judge me. They told me what needed to be done and were honest about everything up front. And the best part was I slept through the whole procedure and had great friends to help me out afterwards. They really are professional and do great work. I recommend them highly to everyone and all my friends.

I had my deep cleaning done with sedation in February of this year. Before coming to Dr.C I didn’t want anyone touching my teeth with any instrument because of extreme sensitivity. I have returned twice for regular cleanings since February and have been able to sit through both just fine without additional sedation! Thank you Dr.C and staff for getting my dental health restored to a place I never thought it would be again.

Dr.Carroccia is the best dentist I’ve ever been to. His staff is also incredible. It is a good feeling to enter an office and be known by your first name. Dr. Carroccia and his staff make everyone feel comfortable with their visit and they keep you involved and interested in your own dental health. If I move away from Clarksville, I will never find a dental office as great as St. B. If you have the option, sedation is the way to go.

My experience with Dr. Tony and his team was great. I was really scared of the dentist and they made me really comfortable with going to the dentist. I was in a lot of pain with my wisdom teeth. I had waited so long to get them pulled. They were really badly decayed. But I didn’t have any pain afterward.

Great Job! They were very professional and made me feel very confident in their abilities. As I have indicated above I was very uneasy about dental work, and with the tremendous amount of work needed on my teeth, sedation dentistry was the perfect solution for me. Dr.Carroccia and his team went to great lengths to explain the procedures and helped me in any way that I requested. My hat’s off to the whole team and thanks very much to Dr. Moseley for recommending Dr. Carroccia.

They took care of me and made me feel very comfortable and relaxed about the whole sedation process.

Being put to sleep is the ONLY way to have any dental work done. You don’t have to hear all the noise and you don’t remember a thing.

They did what I took to make me feel comfortable and secure. They talked to me and told me up front what will be done. It was the best dentistry experience I have ever had. Thank you to Dr. Carroccia and his team for a great job. Now I have no fear of going to the dentist, especially if it is this team.

I was terrified after my last experience that I had over2 years ago to see a dentist until my tooth started to hurt & also broke. I then began to have insecurity & refused to see a dentist until I couldn’t take the pain anymore and I knew it would lead to infections and more. When I found Dr. Carroccia and did some research I felt more at ease. Mind you I still was terrified and had a fear of dentists but then I learned he could do sedation. I forced myself to go in and get my tooth fixed. Since I let my sooth go untreated that amount of time I need a root canal. So I tried oral sedation and came home and felt like I didn’t even get started. I did, I did it! With the oral sedation I underwent the root canal and didn’t even know it. Personally, I have had 2 major back surgeries in the past 2 years and seeing Dr. Carroccia was a piece of cake! Thank you for helping me overcome the fear of coming to the Dentist and if I can do it anyone can.

Everyone on his staff was kind, patient and allowed me to progress on my terms. The sedation process was the right procedure for me. It gave me the confidence to continue my dental visits. I would like to say a “big thank you” to everyone in helping me to overcome my fear of the dentist.

I have an extreme fear of the dentist. Dr. Tony and his assistants were extremely friendly. I felt safe and comfortable in their presence. I will not go to any other dentist! Thanks for such great work & a relaxing atmosphere.

I have always hated getting dental work done because of the pain. With the sedation dentistry, Dr. Carroccia performed, I didn’t feel a thing! Just like the advertisement says, I went to sleep and when I woke up, I was at home and it was all over with. Now, I feel confident that if I need any dental work done, I won’t have to let fear of pain keep my from going to the dentist. Dr. Carroccia and his staff are awesome and I hope he can be my dentist for life!

Everyone was extremely nice and very personable! I have plenty of local dentists near me, but will definitely drive the hour to have such a good experience. Knowing that I don’t have to dread going to the dentist makes all the difference in the world.

My experience with Dr. Carroccia and his team was so wonderful. I don’t even remember leaving my house that morning. I don’t remember anything until that night about 6:00pm. I had no pain what so ever. It was so great. I’m not afraid of the dentist anymore. I can smile again and my smile looks great. I love the dentist now!

Dear Tony & Diane, I want you to know how very much I am enjoying my new smile. Just recently I have seen some people who did not know I was doing it and they have been quite surprised and complimentary. The time and work you put into my dental work makes me very appreciative, proud and attentive to their care. You will never know how happy you made me and how much I appreciate all that you have done! I love you guys very much. Thank you for making one of my lifelong dreams come true.

Dear Dr. Carroccia, On Tuesday, August 5th, 2009, I made my first visit to your office, and I wish to express my most sincere appreciation for the excellent dental care that I received from you and your staff. I look forward to my future appointment on September, 16, 2009, and the opportunity to have you and your staff take care of my dental needs.

Dr. Carroccia & Staff- Thank you for making my teeth sparkly white! I appreciate everything you all do for us! I’m so happy with my results and I can’t wait to come back! P.S. I’ll definitely throw yall tshirs at the games!

You are the Best! I just wanted to take a moment to thank you. The kindness of you and your entire staff means so much to me. Thank you for making such a huge difference in my life. I have a beautiful smile again! Kind regards.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Tony and his staff for the kind and professional treatment I received. You have taken my fear of the dentist away and for that I am forever grateful.
