Christie Olis, New Britain

It was about 13 years ago that I had meet Dr. Treado and it was the best thing that ever has happened to my teeth! Many years had past that I have been seen by a dentist, I knew something had to be done soon and that my teeth had been hurting. Found the dentist in the phonebook and when I went, found he wanted to pull teeth and do unnecessary work on them. Went to work and talked to my boss to see what my insurance would cover and any help. My boss and his wife took me to see Dr. Treado, he was so easy to talk to and answered all my questions. He knew that I had an intense fear of dentists, but he was so gentle and made sure I was comfortable and pain free. Dr. Treado also helped me gain my self-esteem back. I have seen friends from back home and the first remark is, Oh my God your smile is gorgeous, who is your dentist? I have no fear of the dentist anymore and enjoyed having check ups. Took sometime and many visits but it's worth it, also made some friendships with wonderful caring people. Thanks to Dr. Treado and his staff....and I didn't have any teeth pulled!

Thank you Dr. Robert Treado. It was very kind of you to look at my mouth and for everything. It means a lot to me. You are a very nice/kind man who did not try and scare me like everyone else. Instead, you took the time to talk to me about what I was going through. So thank you!

I have been coming to see Dr. Treado for many years. In addition to routine cleanings, he has performed a minor gum surgery on me. The fact that I still come down here despite having moved to Boston over 15 years ago is a testament to my complete satisfaction with him and his staff.

Very good dentist -- have been seeing him since 1984 -- very professional, smart, friendly -- same receptionist (Marge) -- nice surroundings in office -- would recommend Dr. Treado easily

Was sent to Dr. Treado by my primary dentist over 30 years ago and have continued to see him as needed for any needed procedures -- Dr. often hums while he works which is relaxing, also has a big hearty laugh in between which shows his "person' side -- would highly recommend -- also office is very efficient, run by Marge, receptionist since before I came, very personable all around

Dr Treado's work kept my compromised back teeth for 25 years

When I first came to Dr Treado in 1990, he was fairly certain that several of my back teeth were unlikely to stay in much longer, the result of prior smoking and 3 previous gum operations. He put me on a 3 month cleaning schedule and successfully was able to keep all those teeth for 25 years! It wasn't until two teeth broke that we decided to replace those two and two surrounding teeth with implants. The job he did with the implants was excellent and I don't even notice that I have them. I highly recommend Dr Treado for your periodontal needs.

Dr. Treado and his staff are very polite and professional. I was referred to Dr. Treado by my dentist for an issue regarding my implant. Dr. Treado came up with a plan on how to correct the issue and two visits later the implant is back to normal. I would highly recommend using his services. Thanks again Dr. Treado.
