Schedule your visit at one of our 4 locations in Massachusetts; Billerica, Dracut, North Andover, and Wakefield.

We call this the “Happy Visit!” It is vital that children start their early dental experiences with fun, easy, non-threatening visits. Our dental hygienists are great with the little ones. At our dental center, your children will learn about the suction (“Mr. Thirsty”), the water squirter, the bright light, and, if they are ready for it, the tickling toothbrush.

Teaching The Importance Of Oral Health At A Young Age

A great way to gradually introduce your children to the dentist is to bring them along on your dental visit! By doing so, you give your child the chance to get acclimated to the dental environment. Parents can play a big part in showing that going to the dentist isn’t something to be afraid of.

By making every experience a positive one, you can help ensure that going to the dentist will never be something your child avoids because of fear. This also allows our dentists to begin checking your children’s teeth early, to ensure that they are practicing good brushing and oral care.

At Future of Dentistry, we understand your concern for your child’s oral health. We will help you make the right choices to ensure that your child has a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile for years to come!

Essential At-Home Dental Care Habits To Develop

Here are some things you and your child can do at home to maintain oral health and make your dentist visits that much smoother!

  • Brush your teeth 2 times a day.
  • Floss every day.
  • Eat nutritious foods.
  • Cut down on sugary beverages.

We invite all parents to help their children develop good eating and cleaning habits early in life, so they can continue to enjoy great health well into adulthood.

Athletic Mouth Guards

Every child who plays sports should have a customized mouth guard. Research shows custom-fit mouth guards help prevent concussions and other head injuries, in addition to protecting the teeth. Ask our staff how custom guards make a difference — and ask about our programs to help make sports guards affordable for local families.

Dental Sealants

Looking for a little extra help keeping bacteria and plaque buildup at bay? Dental sealants may be the answer.

Sealants act as a shield against all sorts of harmful substances that can get stuck in between and along the surface of your teeth. They’re a great preventative measure for children and teenagers struggling with good oral cleaning habits.

The sealant itself is a thin, clear plastic coating that is painted onto the surface of the teeth and in all the little grooves where bacteria loves to collect. Sealants are particularly advantageous for the back teeth, specifically molars and premolars.

Sealant Procedure

The dental sealant procedure is quick and painless, with no anesthesia, shots, or enamel removal required. The teeth are cleaned with a special gel to ensure all debris has been removed for the sealant is placed. Once the sealant is applied, we use a bright curing light to speed up the hardening process.

One set of sealants can last upwards of ten years! They are a safe, effective defense against decay.

Invest In Your Child’s Health

We at Future of Dentistry are excited to get your children started down the path of great oral hygiene. To learn more about our pediatric services, visit our office!

I was asked today if I wanted to schedule my next cleaning with a specific hygienist. I don’t feel the need to choose one. They’re all excellent. I’ve been going to Future of Dentistry and Dr. Casazza for well over 10 years. I’ve had fillings replaced, cleanings, a mouth guard, an implant etc and it’s always a good experience (I mean, considering it’s the dentist). I highly recommend them. Future of Dentistry has made me one of those weirdos that like going to the dentist 😀

They are the nicest people. They make you very comfortable. We are not just another patient. I hated dentist all my life. They make you feel like you are at home. The girls at front desk very nice. Again made you very comfortable, not a number. I was in a tough situation snd the doctor made it work, whoever heard someone hugging your dentist, I did,

The most recent surgery went off beautifully. Painless and extremely fast and efficient.Tini takes such great care with me as did Dr Costello. After a lifetime of dental fear I’m starting to embrace the process. Trust is imperative. I’m starting to take the needed steps for oral health. Thank you.

I really can not say enough wonderful things about this place. Every person that works there that I’ve interacted with is just great, from the girls up front to the hygienists and doctors. Even the consult lady is amazing! And the work they’ve done on my teeth is top tier. They’ve improved my teeth/smile 10x better than any other dentist office I’ve been to in my life. I’m a forever patient there.

I was very happy with the greeting I got coming in. Bree was my hygienist. She was great very professional yet personable. There were a few new experiences for me. She explained everything thing in detail. I felt very comfortable. It was very convenient that she could make my next cleaning appointment in the room. I thought it was great she walked out with me up to the front. Please continue this great service.

Went in with a very badly hurt and infected wisdom tooth, they were able to get me antibiotics and scheduled me for the following week which is significantly quicker than every other dentist I had called which were out a month minimum. The procedure went very smoothly I was in and out in about an hour and by the time night I was able to drink liquids and eat soft foods. The following day there was also very little pain. Very impressed and will be returning for more dental work in the future.

Loved my experience here! Came in for an annual cleaning after switching from a another dentist. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Everything was explained to me during my entire visit. Don’t hesitate to switch here if you are thinking it making a change with your dental care!

I have been a very happy customer of Future of Dentistry for two years now. They made upper and lower dentures for me. Very happy. All the staff are highly professional and work together as a team.Most recently I dropped and broke my lower denture. They have gone out of their way to get it repaired in short order. Love these people!

I had an emergency in 2017 and was seen immediately. I have been a patient at FOD since. They have a friendly staff and fit you in for emergencies. They also make sure that you are comfortable. I was there for an implant and they made sure I was not cold from the air conditioning.

Navigating your dental care can be an at times stress inducing experience. After reviewing various local Facebook groups for recommendations I was elated to find that Future of Dentistry not only met the expectations set by the feedback of local families but exceeded them tenfold. Compassionate and communicative, I would stop your search here knowing your in the best possible hands. They earn five stars and more!

I was initially hesitant about seeking an oral exam for the excruciating toothache I had been enduring for the past couple of days, mainly because my insurance wasn't active yet. However, the front office promptly scheduled me for a same-day dental emergency care checkup.Dr. Kayla and her entire staff were incredibly accommodating, addressing all of my concerns and providing me with pain medication. They also took the time to explain the subsequent surgical tooth extraction process required to remove my wisdom tooth, and to my surprise, I wasn't charged anything. I had expected the cost of a dental emergency without insurance to be substantial, but that wasn't the case at Future of Dentistry. I wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone residing in the North of Boston area.

During 20 years as a patient I have received outstanding care for a many dental procedures, including numerous crowns, implants and a bridge. The team made sure the result was perfect each time, even if it required replacing something that didn’t meet their standards.They are also a great group of people. Absolute professionals.

I have had such a great experience with Future of Dentistry through different stages of my life journey. I used to deal with really bad anxiety around going to the dentist. I always felt supported when I was there. I'm happy to say that I've worked through the anxiety, and their attention to detail is still phenomenal! I highly recommend!

I chipped my front tooth and I was able to get an appointment the next day with Dr. John. I was nervous about this appointment but the minute I met him, I instantly felt comfortable and relaxed. He was so attentive, personable and very east to talk to. The dental assistant was absolutely wonderful as well. My appointment was just great and the best part is my front tooth looks amazing. No one can even tell that my tooth was chipped at all. I was so worried about how it was going to look and it turned out just beautiful. Dr. John is an amazing dentist and a true artist. The whole team at this practice are friendly, welcoming and wonderful. A big "Thank You" to all!!!

From the first time I called, to the meeting the hygienist and the dentist, I was comfortable and pleased with the interactions. I transferred X-rays from a different dentist, and the person I spoke with (I think Sophia??), was super helpful and I never felt rushed or that this was a hassle. The hygienist, Danielle, I fantastic. She was very knowledgeable (and I ask a lot of questions), and took great care. Usually I feel a bit anxious at the dentist, but I ended up relaxed and felt like good care was taken. I already told my husband to switch his dentist too. Highly recommend!

Allie was excellent and the most knowledgeable hygienist I’ve ever had work on my teeth. She was friendly and made me feel comfortable. John, the dentist gave me recommendations for my health but didn’t push anything on me, also very friendly. The rest of the staff was very professional. I think I finally found my long term dentist office.

I would recommend this place to my family, my friends and anybody in need of dental care! In fact, I travel 50 minutes one way to go there whenever I am in need of dental services. And its worth every mile. They are reasonably priced, have options that might help assist you with your care needs as well as provide excellent -service to perfection. That's right, no more visits for ill fitting dentures, or frequent bite adjustments after fillings or crowns. They take their time, and actually listen to your concerns. But don't just take my word for it- SEE for yourself!! I can almost guarantee that once you go there - you will never want to go anyplace else. And best of all, in most cases you can get everything done in one place!!! A big Gas savings for YOU !

Future of Dentistry is the most amazing dental office I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of. The entire staff is professional, friendly and always there to assist you. I have had a very positive experience each and every time I have an appointment whether it be a routine cleaning or more extensive work such as crowns/fillings. I have referred several of my friends (who are scared of the dentist!) to the practice and they are all very happy too (and look forward to their appointments!)Try FOD out - you will be glad you did!!!

As someone who has never loved going to the dentist (which I assume is the same for most people), this was the best dentist experience I have ever had. Everyone was incredibly nice and communicative, everything was prompt, organized, and I didn’t have to wait around at all.What stood out most to me was that they were really helpful at every step — explaining the X-rays, explaining what/why they were doing next, explaining what my next visits would entail, and so on. There was also the added bonus that they were very conscious of what was and wasn’t covered by my insurance, and were very helpful/deliberate in planning future visits around maximizing as much of my insurance coverage as possible and minimizing all out of pocket costs.I think it’s a pretty good feeling to have found a dentist that I feel comfortable and even enjoy going to. 10/10 would recommend.

My teeth are a battle, have been for a long time. When I walked into the future of dentistry, I thought I may be headed for dentures. one year later I have a positive outlook on my teeth. The visits have been painless, professional and because of some of my teeth are on the edge of being pulled, they did what they could to repair them. one of my caps had a problem and they replaced it free of charge, without question. Besides the fact they do great work, are really nice, make people comfortable, I am impressed that I was actually allowed to leave the office with a small balance due and they did not harass me over it. Other dentists I have dealt with would not let you leave if any balance was due, these folks are reasonable and understand that we are not all rich and dental work is expensive. Having said that the prices are reasonable. Overall you could not find a bad person at this place, everyone is so nice, professional, caring, really they worry about my dog in the car, and when you have a problem they fix it immediately. People make a place great and this place has great people!!

My experience today was great. I contacted the office to inquire about a procedure. They were able to get me in same day for a free consultation, and I was received on time. The dentist was attentive, provided all the necessary information about my options, and provided an estimate of the cost to me based on my insurance. The reception staff were very pleasant. Definitely felt valued as a patient.

Tini, the dental hygienist who is top notch and so informative and does a super job - she's the one who always keeps me coming back! Met Tony who will be taking over for Dr. Lin (sorry to hear he left!). Tony has big shoes to fill but I can see he will do an excellent job and I already feel comfortable just talking to him about my treatment plan. I will continue to highly recommend Future of Dentistry !

Great place. Friendly and happy atmosphere. Very nice and clean office. The tools they use are really modern. Everybody it’s friendly and professional. They explain everything they see during your visit, (it’s nice to know they will apply some cold air or a pinch) so you know what’s going on. Finance help you along with the process for you to understand. Great location. They are experienced and know they are doing. Very competitive prices and work with a lot of insurance companies.You can communicate via phone, email, text. It’s awesome. Glad to find you!

From my he moment I walked in the support staff was friendly and professional, but most importantly they made me feel at ease .Once I meet my Dentist, she made me feel comfortable and relaxed. She spoke to me and listened to my story with compassion and empathy.The exam was a consult but because of my unique situation the Dr . Extended me extra time and completed a task that I thought would take several visits . I was so happy and smiling when I left and truly surprised by the level of service provided .I am sending my family there going forward . I found the future of dentistry .

My first visit. The front desk staff was super friendly and welcoming! I waited only about 5 min and was called back. The DA who did my X-rays was sweet and very good at her job. Dr. Cifuni was very nice. He looked at my tooth issues carefully and took plenty of time to explain everything to me. He is patient, smart and kind, a very, very good doctor. Thank you all very much.

Future of Dentistry is top notch. One of my front teeth got chipped so I called them. They were able to see me in a timely manner, Also my appointment ended up on day there was a snowstorm. Future of Dentistry called prior to my appointment and asked if I would like to come a day earlier to avoid any inconvenience of the storm. Dr. Tony was the doctor that fixed my tooth. He was Fantastic! He assured me as soon as I got in the chair that he would be able to fix my tooth no problem, he had me in and out of there within 40 minutes. The work that the team performed was excellent I can’t even tell my tooth was chipped. Thanks so much!

I have been a patient for a couple of years. I am so impressed by the eagerness of all to make my experience the best it can be. I have never been one to look forward to the dentist office …However the pain free experience I have received at Future of dentistry is by far the best I have ever had. I had my teeth cleaned by Pia this week, she did such a thorough job, very professional and very knowledgeable and willing to share mouth hygiene tips. When I moved to NH I thought about changing dentist…I just couldn’t !I now travel an hour and a half because I know I can’t replace this quality of dental careThanks…

I’ve gone to Future of Dentistry for as long as I can remember. I have had great experiences every time with different dentists, and that’s saying a lot because I’m one of those people who can’t stand going to the dentist. The dentists there are very kind and try to make the visit go by quickly and easily! Great place, if I’m being completely honest, parking can be tough, but you can usually find a spot. (But if that’s the biggest problem I’d say Future of Dentistry is great!
