What Our Patients Say

This is just a note of gratitude to everyone from Charisse and Gina in front, to the techs Marsha, Kat, Nancy, (and I must not forget Dr. Senholzi and Dr. Para). Everyone is so kind. And I have repaired teeth for my trip to Scotland! I may not be the most willing patient, but I am always comforted to know that patient case is obviously the priority at your practice. You make it all so much easier! Of course the great staff is paired with delicious minty compounds and comfy dental chairs with gorgeous window views in back. What more could one hope for if you have to go to the dentist!

Bennett Siegel

"I have been going to Dr. Senholzi for the past eight or nine years. I have had challenging issues with my teeth and she has done an excellent job addressing my needs.  She is thorough, efficient and her work is impeccable. She has a wonderful demeanor and is patient with any questions I may have."


When another professional admires the work of your dentist, you know you have the very best dentist. Thank you Dr. Para for over 15 years of keeping my teeth healthy and beautiful.


"Dr. Para's cosmetic work is beautiful and natural. My smile is now confident and dazzling! My only complaint is why I waited so long."


"My entire family of six have been patients since 2002 and could not be happier. Everyone in the office is friendly, considerate, timely and professional."


"Dr. Senholzi is everything you would want in a dentist. She is patient, kind, and gentle with a wonderful soothing manner. All staff members are warm and friendly, making both adults and kids feel welcome and at ease. I highly recommend this practice for all of your dental needs!"


"In a word, Dr. Para is brilliant. He and all of his staff are wonderfully knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I have recommended him to everyone I know."


"Choosing Dr. Para as my dentist was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Over 15 years ago, I walked into his office and can say, without exception, that every visit has been a good experience."


"The sleep apnea appliance Dr. Para made for me has been extremely effective in treating my snoring and sleep apnea. I've been able to reduce by blood pressure medications and I'm getting the best sleep I've had in years!"


"Dr. Para was just named one of the top five dentists in Delaware by Delaware Today Magazine."
