“As a terrified product of the worst of British dentistry I first went to Steve in the mid 80's. Nobody else has touched my teeth since ... nor will they. He completely cured me of my fear of dentists - and I still have most of my teeth! I can think of no better endorsement.”

First hired Steven as my Dentist in 1986
My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Alter for more than 10 years and we absolutely love him!
Over the years we have visited Dr. Alter for everything from routine cleanings to root canals and his treatment and care have been first rate. Dr. Alter's friendly, personable nature puts you right at ease and his expertise and skill assure you that you are in great hands. He takes a genuine interest, taking the time to listen and talk with us: he has even called me over the weekend to check up on me after a procedure. We appreciate that he takes a conservative approach, always suggesting the least invasive procedure, but talking through all our options with us. His technique is painless. Dr Alter has created an environment where his high standards, deep commitment, and wonderfully positive attitude make a visit to him an enjoyable experience.
We are both so thankful to have found such an excellent dentist in Dr. Alter.

“I have been a patient of Dr. Alter’s for almost a quarter of a century, so speaking of my experience involves speaking of a lot of dentistry. Dr. Alter has always been a skilled technician, who comforted me with a ‘gentle-touch.’ Moreover, his method of explaining the proposed treatment step-by-step, and doing periodic “R-U-OK’ checks, have been a particularly welcomed relief to someone who is extremely pain-averse. I have also found his treatment room atmosphere to be serene...with classical musical waxing against my mounting treatment anxiety. To quote the Greek Philosopher, Seneca,...’People pay the doctor for his trouble; for his kindness they still remain in his debt.’”
