What Our Patients Say About Us

  • "On my first visit with Blanding Dental Associates, I was very impressed. Chris, at the front desk was friendly and helpful. Trish, the hygienist is thorough, which I appreciate. I learned where I can improve my own oral health. Dr. Chamberlin is kind, efficient, and relaxed. Everyone was professional, helpful and I didn't feel rushed when I had a question.
    The whole office is clean, and the waiting area is pleasant. I am very glad I found this dental practice and I'm confident about the care they will give me."
    Teresa C. - from Google
  • "At first, I didn’t believe that a $2,000 dollar plastic appliance would work for my jaw problems, but Chris was right! For no more excruciating pain, it’s worth $10,000 dollars! I would absolutely recommend Dr. Cioffi’s office for anybody with jaw problems!

    I’ve been going to Dr. Cioffi’s office for about 2 years now ever since I noticed that my jaw suddenly started popping very loudly and painfully. The amazingly friendly and knowledgeable staff were able to quickly diagnose my problem and start working on a solution. They made sure I would never need surgery on my jaw. Which was incredibly reassuring considering I was only 19 years old when my jaw started popping painfully. My favorite staff member has to be Chris. He is very genuine and personable. He’s had personal experience with the same problems I have, and really was able to talk me through all the reservations I had. Chris, you told me it would work from the beginning and you were right! Thank you for everything!"
