The things I love most about working with Doctor Lepore are that he is very thorough and comprehensive, yet he is extremely easy to talk to. As a family man, you can tell that he really truly cares about his patients. Things that separate Dr. Lepore from other dentists that I work with is that Dr. Lepore is constantly learning. He also sees the value in working with other professionals in the team; you can find him on the weekends going to CE courses, travelling always trying to serve his patients better and in serving his patients better, that often means working as a team. Doctor Lepore doesn’t have an ego or an agenda. He simply wants what is best for his patients. Working with doctor Lepore in an interdisciplinary approach is really optimal for patient care. Our training and dental school is broad but that doesn’t make it specialized so it is just like building a home – you wouldn’t enlist just one person to build it from top to bottom. Our mouth is very complex with our gums and teeth and even patient-level anxiety. Dr. Lepore recognizes and sees the value in working as a team to achieve optimal results. Dr. Lepore and I worked really well to optimize patient care by picking up the phone after hours. Dr. Lepore is never shy to give up his personal time to work with members of the community and members of the dental community so that when I receive one of his patients in my office I already knew everything about them that he is taking me from start to finish in the thoroughness of his letter and phone calls to me so that I know how the patient is feeling what are their desires, what is it that he sees so that when they come into my office I can take his pediatric patients and deliver the best-tailored care for them. Dr. Lepore is excellent at wanting the best for his pediatric patients when it comes to comfort and sometimes that means when you have a three-year-old with 6 cavities there might be a different place where they are best served! Dr. Lepore as a dad himself understands that every dental experience should be like Disneyland for a child.
As a person with extreme anxiety (especially at the dentist) I have to say, this is one of the few places I have ever felt comfortable. Well, as comfortable as I can, that is. The staff has always gone out of their way to make sure I was doing okay and never made me feel like I was being ridiculous (even though I usually am). I am greatly appreciative of their patience, humor, and honesty.
