2005-11-13 12:52:07 I like Pisciotta, he's a pretty cool guy but you usually deal with the staff rather than you actually deal with him. —LizethCazares
2005-12-10 10:07:51 I recently visited Dr. Pisciotta's office for the first time. He and his staff were very friendly, helpful, and thorough. I will definitely continue my care with them. —AmandaSmith
2006-12-19 11:08:34 Yeah, he is a nice guy, surrounded by a wall of incovenience. Not possible to leave voicemail or e-mail or any other way to cancel appointments... Don't call them at lunch —MichaelCase
2007-07-19 10:08:08 The second greatest dentist in the known world. The first is Steve Cavagnolo, but he has retired. I don't know why Italians make such great dentists, but quello è fortunato! Also, he has dreamy eyes. —HeywoodJablome
2007-08-24 17:27:41 I went to see Dr. pisciotta after a not so good visit at Dr. Lin's office. He was very nice and understanding, I think this dentist is a keeper. —jess
2008-01-18 10:41:38 I love Dr. Pisciotta. He's awesome and does great work. I've been going to the same practice since before Dr. Cavagnolo retired and I agree with the other comment here—sad to hear Cavagnolo was retiring, but he couldn't have left his clients in better hands. —KarenEmbry
2008-05-13 20:23:09 I went to Pisciotta for many years but had to find another dentist because he does not control his staff very well. Don't expect his staff to care about you even though you may be a long-time patient. I tried to work out a minor Delta Dental billing problem with his staff and they acted like jerks. Who needs that? I recommend going to a dentist's office where the dentist is in charge not rude staff people. —jakedavis
2009-03-17 13:09:25 Great experience with Dr. Pisciotta - he's friendly and kind, and seems to genuinely care about patient comfort. I had a cavity filled and he kept apologizing for any discomfort, but he must be pretty good because I didn't feel any. His staff is friendly as well, and I've never had any problems getting in touch to confirm/change an appointment. —scottfischbein
2009-06-16 11:42:15 He's great, I had teeth pulled by him and I stayed awake for the entire procedure by choice (I could have fallen asleep if I'd wanted to) because I was curious and he made the entire thing painless, even when the anesthetic was going in. —JacobMealy
2010-01-29 10:33:01 Dr. Pisciotta took care of a cavity I had on my wisom tooth when I first moved back to Davis after graduating dental school. I was impressed with the detailed anatomy that he carved into the filling. Detailed anatomy is not always clinically necissary but I always take the time to add this level of detail because it shows an appreciation for quality work and the art of dentistry. I was very happy to see this level of dedication. I have also seen the same detail on some of his patients at the community clinic (so it was not just a special treat he did for another dentist). He is also nice guy. —DagonJones
2010-06-09 13:37:37 I've gone to Pisciotta several times, and he's great, as is his staff. Can take a LONG time to get appointments, so call ahead! —JohnW
2010-09-16 21:23:21 I have had nothing but excellent service and experiences from Dr. Pisciotta and his staff. My husband and I have been going to him for 5 years, and my husband had several cavities filled and said he did an excellent job and it was pain free. —Barley123
2011-03-28 22:08:28 My children and I have been seeing Dr. Pisciotta for almost 12 years now and I have only good things to say. My youngest has a hard time sitting still and is also very talkative, and the hygienists are always patient with her fidgeting and talking during the cleanings. I have some weird thing with my nerves which make it difficult to numb my molars, so I was really worried when first starting with a new dentist. He is fabulous! I swear he can read my face to see if I'm having pain before I can even gesture or anything and he stops immediately. I just want to be clear, it is not that he is not numbing my mouth properly, it's some weird thing with my nerves. The difference between Dr. Pisciotta and the other dentists I've seen is that he is much more patient with having to stop and give me another shot and much more sensitive to the fact that I am still having pain. I do agree with the previous comments in that if you need to be seen at a specific time for a cleaning, you may have to wait a bit for an appointment, although after your first cleaning they just schedule you in advance for the next ones. However, anytime I've had a toothache they have been able to fit me in the same day I call. I can not imagine having a better experience at a dentist's office. —HilaryGarvin
2011-07-11 11:17:41 I had been going to see Dr. Cavagnolo and for the past few years Pisciotta and everything was great. Then I tried to make an appointment in late June for a cleaning and to discuss a possible new development and was offered an appointment in late August. Two months? Something about a summer schedule, which I figure means either staff vacations or more people coming in with kids during the summer. They did offer to call me if there was an opening earlier, but alas, I have to go find a new dentist now. —m610
2012-10-31 16:13:20 I've been going to Dr. Pisciotta for several years and have found both him and his office to be professional and provide good care. He repaired a damaged crown for me and from a cosmetic point of view I was very pleased. —BethGoodstone
2013-11-30 13:06:32 Dr. Ron has all of the state-of-the-art equipment and skills to make and install a perfect crown in one visit. After getting two crowns the old way, I'll never do that again. Dr. Ron's computer-cut crown fit perfectly the first time and looks and feels just like the old tooth. Highly recommended. —JimStewart
2015-03-10 11:41:52 He's a good dentist, but expensive. Went in for a 5 minute conversation with him about some discomfort and received a $120 bill for an "office visit." Apparently the receptionist coded the visit under something that my insurance doesn't cover under any circumstance. I called the insurance company and they suggested I have her re-submit under the code that my insurance will cover so I didn't have to pay $120 out-of-pocket. When I went in to ask the receptionist about it she said she doesn't know of any other codes and that if I have one I would like her to use she would do it. It boggles my mind that Dr. Pisciotta doesn't have a proper insurance specialist in his office. The fact that she suggested that I should be responsible for my own medical coding is ridiculous. The office was unwilling to work with me on the insurance issue. Needless to say, Dr. Pisciotta lost me as a patient and I will not be recommending his office. —CT2008
2015-07-08 12:44:13 I've never been one to dislike going to the dentist (or to write poor reviews on the internet), but my appointment here was the worst dental experience of my life. The receptionist was rude and made me feel bad because my insurance company didn't file me the way she expected them to and she was having a hard time finding my policy. Go in and get x-rays, they cut me with the tool and don't notice until they realize there's blood on the sensor. There are no doors, just doorways, so there's no privacy as people walk by. Additionally, staff are constantly going in and out to talk about other patients or tasks to be done. There's a time for that... and it's not when I'm sitting in the chair and they're putting things in my mouth. Just wait until they leave the room unless it's an emergency. To make it worse, they literally would stop what they're doing and leave the room to do the other thing. After an hour, I finally meet the dentist. At this point, the cut is quite painful and I have a hard time opening my mouth without my eyes tearing up. He looks at my mouth and tells me nothing I didn't already know and I'm free to go. But I don't want to go, I want the cleaning I was scheduled for. Only I'm not in the system to get a cleaning and it's another month until there's an opening. The whole thing felt like an exercise in torture and I had to pay for the experience. Do not recommend. —TheAlbatross
