West shore dental is the best. Everyone there is so friendly and caring. My husband and I have been going there for many, many years and wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. We appreciate all of the people that are there, from the front fest to the back offices. Simply the best!!!!
I got the most out of my cleaning with Cheri. She took extra time to teach me the importance of teeth health. Cheri is a top notch hygienist.
This facility is state of the art. The staff is friendly and the services is expedient. I would recommend this facility to anyone!
Response from the owner: Thank you Mike!
I recently had a cleaning, a filling, and 2 crowns in a combined office visit that took a little under 3 hours. There was NO pain and everyone I dealt with was very nice and very informative.The girls in the office, along with Amber, David,Tammy, Dr. Johnson, and Dr. Conte, were a pleasure to work with.I was happy I picked them based on a lot of ND recommendations!
Response from the owner: Thanks Deb! Always fun to hear nice feedback
Very good result very satisfied explained the procedure very well
Response from the owner: Thanks Jim!
My 1st experience here was amazing. The facility itself is gorgeous. Nikki, Tara and Dr. Johnson were fantastic and knowledgeable - they made me feel very comfortable and explained every procedure and recommendation so well. The front desk ladies were very friendly and helpful. So glad I transferred here!
Response from the owner: Thank you Kendra! It was very nice to meet you

Dr Conte is always so efficient ,accurate , and pleasant I love the fact that you can tell how much he likes what he does .
Response from the owner: Thank you!
Dr Conte’s office was the only dentist in town that would take me in for an exam. I was in deep pain. No other dentist office would see me. I received red carpet treatment when I arrived. Staff was extremely professional and sympathetic to my needs. Dr Conte made me feel very comfortable. Dr Conte talked to me step by step on the procedure he was doing. I was so comfortable on this visit. I would highly recommend to any person to try to get into his office. Thank you Dr Conte and all staff members !!!!!!!!
Response from the owner: You are very kind Michael. It was great to meet you!
Great staff!!! They work as a team to find best solutions for your individual needs. I’ve been a patient of Dr. Conte for many years and continue to highly recommend him and West Shore Dental. Mary, my dental hygienist, is wonderful! Greets with a smile and makes you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in, excellent care, always a pleasant experience. Office staff, Tracy, Maureen, Danielle and Donna are so friendly, incredibly knowledgeable and always helpful. It’s like visiting friends while getting your dental treatments. Great experience always!!!
Response from the owner: Thank you Joan! It's always a pleasure!
Dr. Ben is very informative and kind. If you are scared of dentists, this is the place to go! They are great at managing Periodontal Disease and putting you at ease with realistic and hopeful expectations and solutions. I want to say every single staff member in this office is so friendly. I have never seen so many people smiling at once. If it wasn’t for this dentist office I would never go to the dentist. THANK YOU WEST SHORE DENTAL!
Response from the owner: Thank you Chloe! Very kind!
I enjoyed talking to Dr.Ben,I felt relaxed and he explained my different options I had.
Response from the owner: That is very nice to hear James!

Response from the owner: Thank you Laura! It is always a pleasure
Very nice staff with great looking rooms and equipment. 100% recommend them if you need a dentist.
Response from the owner: Thank you very much!
I've been coming to West Shore Dental for a couple of years now and let me tell you I searched for somewhere I felt comfortable. I have a little dental PTSD and I'm an admitted baby, so for awhile I didn't go to anyone. But you can't avoid it forever so I searched and went to at least 4 different places until I found Dr. Conte and his whole staff. I finally feel at ease and am getting the work I need done. It feels good I found a dental home :) I've switched my whole family here too. Anyway, the reason for my review after 2 years was that I broke a tooth and needed a crown. Having no idea what that entailed I was petrified. Thank you for making the whole experience quick and relatively easy. Anxiety stayed at bay and I left feeling like I could do anything. Thank you again, I'm so glad I found you!!!!!
Response from the owner: Thank you Kristin for the kind words. You made our day!
A very nice place to go and have your teeth cleaned Mary I've known her for a long time she's very professional a great sense of humor.
Response from the owner: Thank you Mark!
Amber always does a great job with my cleanings!
Response from the owner: That is very nice to hear, Bill!
Very professional and best quality of service from start to finish. Highly recommend!
Response from the owner: Thank you Vin!
I am forever grateful that I am a patient at West Shore dental, the care I get from the whole staff is always friendly and professional, thank you! Mary, Tracy, Maureen and Dr Conte , what a great team. I very much appreciate all that you do. Thank you!
Response from the owner: You are always a pleasure. Thank you so much for the nice words!
Wow everyone here is all so friendly and welcoming. I hate going to the dentist but they made the whole experience easy. I need some work done including an extraction. Needless to say the whole experience was painless including the numbing! Dr Ben and his assistant are amazing!
Response from the owner: That is really great to hear. Thank you Joseph!
Always a pleasure to visit with Mary to have my teeth cleaned. She’s thorough, professional and does a great job. Highly recommend this practice
Response from the owner: Thank you!
I have been a west shore dental client for 33 years! I love this office and my hygienist, Tara! She is amazing. And she is very good with kids also. My daughter sees Tara also and talks about her year round!
Response from the owner: Thank you Keri!
I love going to the dentist! My hygienist, Mary is awesome! Aside from the fact that she does a great job by keeping my not-flossing nearly enough self healthy, I feel like I'm visiting a friend whenever I go for my appointments. We laugh and joke and have a good time. Well, I do anyway. Mary...Mary? My dentist, Dr. Conte is pretty great too with a great dry sense of humor. However, I can't say that I enjoy my visit with him as much as I do my visit with Mary, especially like my next visit when I need to get a cavity filled. Drills are no fun anywhere but I wouldn't want any other dentist to do it.
Response from the owner: Thanks for the kind words Michael. Always a pleasure!
I LOVE Mary, my hygienist! She is always warm and friendly. She takes a moment to meet her patients and even asks about my life every time! I am not the biggest fan of the dentist at all. But, I can handle it with Mary's presence. I have even asked to only be treated by Mary. If she were out, then I would willingly reschedule. I am very happy with her care! And I highly recommend her!
Response from the owner: Very nice to hear! Thank you Laura!
Always treated kindly, thoroughly, and quickly, if needed!!
Response from the owner: Thanks for the kind words. Always a pleasure to see you!
Mary did an amazing job. Quick, thorough, and painless. She is so friendly it’s no wonder why everyone requests her.
Response from the owner: Thank you David!
West Shore Dental is the best! I would dread and get anxious going to dentist before becoming a patient at West Shore. From the front desk to the hygienists and dentists they have an incredible team. I would highly recommend this dental office to anyone!
Response from the owner: Thank you Deb!
West Shore Dental is wonderful! Friendly, compassionate, up to date with technology, and very clean.
Response from the owner: Thank you Carol!
Dr Conte filled a cavity without me even knowing it while he prepared me for a crown replacement. It was painless. Then he used 3-D computerized development of my crown, which was amazing to watch. A great experience!
Response from the owner: Thank you Linda!
She is the greatest, make the time go by fast and so very pleasant.
