We are a family owned office with deep and longstanding ties to the Orange, Milford, New Haven, and West Haven communities.

Did we say we’re family owned? We did! But we’ll say it differently. We are NOT owned by a large Corporation whose only goal is to make money at the expense of their patients. Our goal is to improve and maintain the oral health of our patients.

We always provide up front and honest treatment recommendations – we will never sell nor push unnecessary procedures – unlike the offices owned by large Corporations.

We will always work to ensure you can use as much of your dental insurance in our office as possible. We are considered “in-network” with most large dental insurance plans (Cigna PPO, Delta Premier, Met Life, Aetna, Anthem BC/BS, etc.)

We offer convenient, family-friendly appointment times, with all care being delivered in a modern and clean setting. What more can you ask for?


Sure, we’ve treated lots of celebrity patients in our office.

But you don’t have to be one of the most famous people in the world to to be treated here! We treat ordinary patients too. Teachers from the New Haven public school system, engineers and machinists from Sikorsky, professors and administrators from Yale, police men and women from Milford, cashiers from Costco, students from Univ. of New Haven, etc. – are all currently seen in our office.


In addition to being a family office offering comprehensive care for your entire family, we are also the leading IV sedation dentistry office in all of Connecticut. In fact, we are aware of no other general dental office in Connecticut which completes as many sedation cases per year as we do.

IV sedation dentistry in Orange, Connecticut

Want to sleep in the clouds while your dental work is completed?

Dr. Nicholas Calcaterra is fully licensed through the state of Connecticut to administer IV sedation in our Orange office. For us, this is a routine procedure, as we sedate patients for all types of procedures (wisdom teeth extractions, root canals, crowns, or even fillings).

Dr. Nick is the only actively licensed general dentist in the entire state of Connecticut who has achieved Master Status through the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology. He routinely completes over 125 sedation cases per year. It is not uncommon for patients from other New England states and New York to commute to our office to be treated by him. He is a true expert in his field.
