"I have been a patient of East Haddam Dental for very many years. I have at all times been treated courteously and professionally. Dr. Stofko and now Dr. Goldman have tended to my teeth with a maximum of skill and a minimum of pain. Dr. Pear has also pitched in in their absence when I had an emergency that could not wait. I have never had an issue with the front desk staff. When I have a problem with a tooth they are always sympathetic and do their best to get me an early appointment to get it fixed. As for wait time, my experience is that I'm usually seated within a few minutes of my appointment. On those rare occasions where I did have to wait it was only for 15 minutes or so. I always figured the Doctor was backed up because someone needed extra help and I was just happy not to be that person. Needless to say I am pleased with the quality of care I've received and intend to stay with East Haddam Dental for the foreseeable future."

"Dr. Steven Pear is by far the best, most experienced, wonderful dentist I have ever had. I am 39 years old and from East Haddam. Dr. Pear was my dentist as a child. I still have fillings he did from when I was a kid. Meanwhile, when I was not a resident in East Haddam, I used other dentists and that work has been shoddy. In fact, it has cracked or fallen out. Dr. Pear's work stands the test of time. My children now see him, and they love him too. Not enough can be said to praise this office. From the front staff to dental hygienists to other dentists, all A++++"
