I appreciate that Dr. Spano does not try to sell services like a used- car salesman. He seems very honest, allowing delays of x-rays when deemed appropriate and not presenting a financial burden on the patient. And, even when missing a tooth, he doesn’t keep giving me estimates on replacements, like a former dentist. Instead, he has given options, opinions, and assured me that it is not causing a problem at this time, rather than trying to coerce me into having an expensive replacement. As a retired senior, I especially appreciate this. I also like that Dr. Spano never seems hurried. He takes time to chat with patients, treating us like friends, not just patients. The staff is always friendly and competent. The environment is attractive, peaceful, especially views from the windows. I am very pleased with South Side Dental Center and recommend it to others.
