I would like to nominate Dr. Pizzi for the Nobel Prize in Dentistry! In just over the last 5 months Dr. Pizzi has done a fabulous job in resolving my following dental issues: (1) Difficult root canal problem…now solved (2) Excellent work with needed on lay (3) Dental Bonding (teeth look great now) (4) Created effective Night Guard to prevent teeth grinding. (5) Night Guard also helped resolve my sleep apnea issues as measured by Oxymetry test…I now sleep great and have retired my annoying CPAP machine! Dr. Pizzi is a Dental Rock Star!!

The staff is very pleasant and through. They will take the time to answer your questions and point out areas of concern that will need to be addressed in the future. They provide good recommendations for ongoing care and seem to have your best interests in mind. Its nice to see a dental office that keeps up to date on the latest technology and training.

A wonderful practice with 2 amazing dentists. I travel a long way to have Dr. Pizzi care for my teeth because I never take for granted someone I can trust completely with what I need; both on what I need AND I’m doing the work PAINLESSLY and precise! You won’t find many dentists like Dr. Pizzi with the foresight to set up a plan to help you have a smile you can be proud of for a lifetime AND the skill to make it happen! Dr. Pizzi is also one of the few who takes a proactive approach addressing underlying causes of issues related to the mouth from sleep disorders to Tmj. I couldn’t recommend Dr. Pizzi enough or this practice; they are exceptional in every way!

Dr. Pizzi is wonderful ! This past year I’ve had extensive dental work done…everything from crown replacements to work to correct my bite. Dr. Pizzi is skilled and meticulous, and the staff is fabulous. I couldn’t be happier with the results.

This is a new Denist Sevice  location for me as I have been seeing the same Denist for 40 yrs. ( he has passed on ) regardless to say, I was saddened by his passing then by my selfishness who will work on my teeth now ????? After a LOT of research I have now found Modern registry of Shrewsbury. So happens to be, my visit which I thought would be a cleaning trail basis type thing turned into an emergency two teeth extraction. My emotions were thought the ceiling needless to say. However I was totally satisfied, happy and relieved from the performance from the complete staff the Doctors. Thank you Modern Dentistry of Shrewsbury.  Paul W

What a great office. The dentists Dr. Pizzi and Dr. Messina are excellent. Extremely knowledgeable and very nice. I have a brother who is mentally ill and they are wonderful with him. From the friendly front desk staff to the assistants and hygienists everyone in the office is friendly, knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. Makes going to the dentist not so bad!

F. M. from Westborough, MA (Source: Yelp)


My whole  family  has been going to Dr. Pizzi’s  office  for several years  now  and  we will  continue to do  so.  The office is very  clean and Dr. Pizzi and his entire staff are very friendly and very competent. I  have always had a great cleaning by Marie, who I just love ! and more recently had invisalign to  close a gap in my lower teeth. I was very happy with the results. They explain your situation very well and answer all your questions. You will never feel rushed and  will be  well  taken care of. They all really care about you and your health.  It is also very well located and  easy to get to. you won’t be disappointed.

My family has been going to Modern Denistry for almost 5 years. Unfortunately we had to find them because of a tooth ache and we had just moved to the area and didn’t have a dentist yet.. Dr. Pizzi fit me in as a new patient and was very kind. The whole staff is wonderful and my family loves them!! Wouldn’t go anywhere else!!

Who likes going to the dentist? Not me … UNLESS I’m heading over to the folks at Modern Dentistry of Shrewsbury. These people are first class. Professional, fast, courteous, and they do excellent work. They make having a healthy gorgeous smile so easy! Best of all… no pain involved. 🙂

The office is well designed, cared for and clean. The entire experience from the time that I called to the completion of my appointment was a pleasure. Ms. Ellis was my hygienist and she was very pleasant, knowledgeable and thorough. Ultimately, I felt like a customer, and for many doctors and dentist offices I cannot say the same. Highly recommend.

Melody D. from Shrewsbury, MA (Source: Yelp)


It is a rare thing to actually look forward to going to the dentist.  This practice, including everyone in it, makes you feel good about the experience.  As a long time patient of Dr. Pizzi’s, I recently started seeing his new partner, Dr. Messina, who is, without a doubt, one of the MOST skilled and wonderful practitioners on the planet! The entire staff is welcoming; the office is beautiful; the technology they employ is cutting edge.  A special shout-out to hygienist, Marie, who is just the best.

Our family has been treated by this practice for almost three decades. Our kids looked forward to their visits with Marie and Todd and continued as adults for as long as they were in this area. The staff are warm, welcoming, and professional, and they treat you like family. As someone who spent their career advising health care providers, I can tell you that this practice exemplifies a well run, innovative, high quality operation.

I just recently moved to the area and I was due for a cleaning, so I found Modern Dentistry was highly rated on Google & Angie’s List. Making an appointment was easy and my experience with my first appointment was very nice. The hygienist and dentist were both very informative and showed genuine interest in gaining a better understanding of my dental history, Overall, I was very pleased with my experience and I look forward to a continued pleasurable experience for both me and my family in the coming years.

The engaging staff makes patients feel welcome upon arrival. The office feels fresh and current and appointments run on time. Have had six years of positive experiences with Dr. Bellisario and Dr. Pizzi. Would definitely recommend these guys!

Anna L. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I thought Dr Bellissario was good but I find Dr Pizzi to be even more amazing! I have had so many health issues over he last 5 years and went thru tons of testing with all sorts of specialists. Dr Pizzi suspected sleep apnea and helped me advocate for the correct testing and sure enough that is exactly what was going on. I feel like I owe my life to this guy for helping me figure out how to sleep properly and get my life back. He has also helped me find the right people to help make sure my kids don’t end up with the same issues. Jaclyn cleans my teeth and she is great. I have also has sealants and an onlay and I find this practice to always do high quality work. Trish at the front desk is so friendly and welcoming.

Donna R. from Worcester, MA (Source: Yelp)


I love this practice. Today I had my teeth cleaned by Marie. She is highly trained to look at more than just the tartar on my teeth. She teaches me about how the health of my teeth and gums relate to my overall health, and she is knowledgeable about dental procedures so that she can anticipate what may be in store for me regarding future procedures. Years ago my dental cleanings were painful and I did not look forward to them. In this practice and with Marie, I actually look forward to my cleanings because my teeth feel so good afterwards. With the preventive care that I get with Dr. Pizzi and Marie, including a bite guard and checking the alignment of my teeth, I’m in better shape than I’ve been for years. Also, I feel like a family member in this practice! Donna R. Shrewsbury

We moved to the area about a year and a half ago and had not found a dentist yet when unfortunately I had a bad toothache. Modern Dentistry got me in for an appointment right away and Dr. Pizzi was wonderful. He quickly found the issue and explained the solution and was not pushy at all about me using his office since I was new to the area and really without a dentist. Over the next couple of weeks I got to know Dr. Pizzi and his staff well as I had several appointments for root canal, crown, etc. I was very pleased with my initial experience and continue to be happy with the office as now my entire family goes to Modern Dentistry and Dr. Pizzi. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for a dentist!

X. Y. from Worcester, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Pizzi for many years and he is the best dentist I have ever had – ever. He is a perfectionist and repaired a front tooth filling perfectly where the previous dentist had drilled nearly all of the tooth away to the point of breaking and the filling kept chipping off. He fixed it cosmetically – matching the color and giving it a shiny finish – so seamless you can barely tell there is a filling there and it has lasted years. I have gotten a few crowns and he also replaced a few HUGE old decayed silver fillings – NO PAIN the next day (unlike previous dentist). The office is hygienic and modern and they make some things onsite – I think it was a temporary crown. Highly recommend him and the staff is friendly and hygienists are excellent at cleanings and examining teeth/gums for issues. He also helped with migraines / is helping me with TMJ issues. Extremely knowledgeable on complex dental issues – like a walking encyclopedia – but he explains everything simply and all options / long term effects thoroughly.

Nancy S. from Paxton, MA (Source: Yelp)


Staff is very  friendly, and provided me information that I need.     Dr. Pizzi    has been Great!!  he has made me feel at ease, and well informed about my future dentistry needs and the dental care I will be receiving, I feel so confident in the care i am getting here compared to what i had experienced prior to coming to Modern Dentistry ….I actually enjoy going to the Dentist which has never been the case.

Giuseppe F. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I love this office so much that I actually drive out FROM Boston and dedicate quite a few hours to the experience. The staff, both dental and office, are incredibly friendly and welcoming. My teeth are very well taken care of, the office is super clean, and they help make the best of one of life’s least pleasant maintenance activities.

Rob B. from Westborough, MA (Source: Yelp)


Like most, I am not a fan of going to the dentist. However, Modern Dentistry really does their best to make the experience pleasurable. The office is 5 star from the waiting room through the treatment/cleaning rooms. The team is friendly as well. Also, Dr. Pizzi takes the time to talk to all of his patients, learn about them and connect. He does not just parachute in and out. I have also had them do a filling. They called me a few hours later to see how I felt. That weekend I felt a sensitive spot. Dr. Pizzi called me back directly to check in. You really can’t do better than Modern Dentistry. There is also a great coffee shop downstairs so after your cleaning you can get a nice treat!

Everyone at Modern Dental is GREAT! They got me in when I had a semi emergency right away. Dr Pizzi talked with me about the tooth gave his opinion and we did what was best for me. It didn’t even hurt. I’ve been going there for many years after previously going to many other dentist offices, and will not ever be going anywhere else. The office is beautiful, incredibly clean and exactly what I want in any healthcare experience. Thank you everyone there my family and I are truly happy with you all.

Modern Dentistry has caring and professional folks. Their facility is just that…modern! I have only been going here for about a year and am so glad to have found them! They are just what I was looking for…professional, warm and caring. Thanks Dr. Pizzi and staff!!

Marie McConkey (Source: Google)


Truly Modern dentistry! It took a year but after extraction, bone graft, implant, healing time and finally tooth! I can say I had nothing but the best care during this process. Anytime I was uncomfortable or unsure I got help. Would definitely recommend. And now I can eat normal again!!!
