Long but worth it: Over the past 10 years I’ve grown a HUGE fear of the dentist. I avoided it for so long that my teeth were in terrible shape only at age 20. I know, it may sound childish, but it really took a toll on me every day physically & especially mentally. I could barely even think about sitting in a dentist office without getting anxious. I would even faint at times. I started to lose hope for myself. Dental on Central has helped me in countless ways and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, especially with fear of the dentist like me. Even after just one phone call with the woman at the front desk made me feel safe. She spoke to me with sympathy and kindness in her voice, which is very important. Walking in, everyone was welcoming and friendly. I had a consultation and Dr. Herro made sure I felt comfortable. They even gave me a blanket when I laid on those scary chairs. & for the first time ever, I was relaxed. I felt like a friend was helping me, not some intimidating doctor. I finally got the courage to set up an appointment for oral surgery. Rosie and Terry, the planners for my payments and surgery date, were both extremely helpful. They were sweet and caring and didn’t look at me as just another patient, even though I was. Finally, the date of my surgery came and it went so smoothly. I asked for them to use anesthesia gas first so that I didn’t have to experience any sight of IV or any scary tools. I peacefully went to sleep within seconds as the other doctor talked me through everything. I woke up, obviously on drugs but as soon as I got home comfortably in bed with my boyfriend, I cried of joy. I felt so relieved. It was as if a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I feel more free. To think that for all these years of pain & torture, I finally found courage and just the right place to help me. I had an amazing experience and I can now say that I would willingly go back here, and I definitely will be recommending Dental on Central to people who suffer with extreme fear & anxiety. Thank you guys so much.

Dr. Hero, Dr. Anthony, and the staff one word to describe you all base on our almost 20 years’ experience under your care is “EXCELLENT”. Always make me feel comfortable and listen to all my concerns with a good attitude and warm welcome I feel doctors and staff always make me feel comfortable. Their professionalism is excellent, and I highly recommend this office to anyone.

Great experience, from the reminders before my appointment, to the greeting when I got there, to the actual treatment itself. Dr. Herro has created one, big family, of super-competent team members, making going to the dentist a positive experience.

I’ve been a patient for a while and couldn’t ask for better care. Dr. Santoro, Dr. Herro, and Dr. J are so nice and thorough and have always made me feel comfortable. It’s expensive but that’s to be expected with any major dental work. Their dental hygienists and support staff are wonderful. They’ve made dental work as painless as possible

Hannah H. from Laveen Village, Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I 100% recommend this office especially dr santoro I’ve had horror stories and been told I was allergic to things that the doctor proved I was just being administered wrong to. I will not go anywhere else. He’s calm funny and extremely good at his job. If ur scared to c the dentist he’s the one u need to see. He is amazing and his office is so friendly. Don’t hesitate to call this office! Thank you dr santoro!!! I’ve been told he like oatmeal raisin cookies lol

My experience at Dental on Central was the absolute best I’ve had in my life. Given my severe anxiety about going to the dentist, I was immediately given the opportunity to consult with Dr. Herro and the anesthesiologist to ensure I was as comfortable as possible during my procedure. When I had my work done, the anesthesiologist was incredible and I was able to have all of my dental work completed (by Dr. Herro, the oral surgeon and the endodontist) at one time. All of the staff was extremely comforting and professional! I highly recommend this office for any and all dental work!!

I saw Shannon and Dr. Herro for a new patient visit recently. My experience was top notch. I am very fearful of the dentist. Dr. Herro and Shannon put me at ease. The office is beautiful and everyone at Dental on Central was professional and very knowledgeable. I would recommend them to anyone afraid of the dentist.

Very precautious which made me feel very safe during my visit! First, a staff member must get you prior to walking in the office to check in. When waiting for your hygienist they have the chairs spaced out six feet apart and limit the amount of patients waiting in the room. Once you are taken to the back, they make sure you wash your hands and rinse your mouth out with peroxide. During your appointment the hygienist wears layers of masks and wipes down surfaces as they are used! After I did not have to check out and was able to go on my merry way!

Everyone at Dental on Central is caring and treats you like family. These are very hard times for everyone and I appreciate all of the staff risking themselves to care for clients at this time. I was in need of an emergency extraction and was taken great care of today. I appreciate everyone going above and beyond to follow the safest protocol during my visit. I recommend this dental company to everyone who is looking for a place that treats you will respect and compassion

My son has cerebral palsy, n a wheelchair, and he has been going to Dr. Herro and his father for a few years, he usually has to have sedation for cleaning, x-rays and any other work he might need. Everyone there always treats him with kindness and makes him feel comfortable. Dr Herro always explains to us and our son what needs to be done, so o we understand He is the only person I know that gets excited about going to see the dentist. Everyone is friendly and professional they are willing to work with payments too. We highly recommend them..

I have been seeing Dr. Herro for several years and have always had an incredibly positive experience!  The front staff is extremely friendly and helpful.  Dr. Herro is very knowledgable and caring. He, and his staff, create a comfortable and relaxing environment.  The staff is very accommodating to my schedule.  I highly recommend Dental on Central!!

I’m using my wife’s google account to post my review, as I do not have one. I cannot say enough about this dental office! I feel so comfortable with Dr. Herro, and even though the location is nowhere near my residence, I continue to go here because of the amazing health professionals. The front staff is always friendly, but my hygienist Sherri is the one I am truly thankful for! I used to despise going to the dentist because of previous bad experiences, particularly when my teeth were being cleaned. Sherri took the time to listen to my concerns on my first visit, and she always remembers what bothers me and works around that, while still doing the job. She is professional but still maintains a wonderful sense of humor that puts me at ease. She isn’t like other hygienists I’ve had that ask a bunch of questions while your mouth is full and you can’t answer. Sherri just makes general conversation that I can listen to or nod at, and that makes the time go by quickly. She helps take my mind off the task at hand and is so attentive, checking on me and making sure I’m comfortable with the procedure she’s doing. It’s obvious she cares about her patients and that she is a true professional following all health and safety guidelines. I would recommend this office hands down. I’m not sure how many dentists or hygienists work here, but ask for Sherri as your hygienist and Dr. Herro as your dentist… you won’t regret it!

Dental on Central is a wonderful practice! I love everyone there, especially JoAnn, who is the best dental hygienist there! Dr. Herro and Dr. Jejna are wonderful and they use all of the most modern technologies with X-rays and teeth cleanings. I love getting my teeth cleaned and trust them completely! Thanks so much!

I have a severely disabled daughter. She is 37 years old and we have had the worst experiences over the years with her dental care…that is until we were referred to Dr. Herro and his dad. I LOVE them both!!! They are skilled in their craft, but also kind, caring and considerate. I would recommend them 100% to anyone and everyone!

Ruby W. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


A very welcoming dentist! They take such good care and I always feel like I am the only one they are treating. I really like that no matter what I need, whether an easy tooth cleaning or something more involved, they can take care of it right there, no referring me to others. Also it’s really nice to see that they are care for patients and children with special needs.

I totally recommend this Dental Practice. The office staff is super nice and friendly and easy to work with. Everyone is really nice and down to earth. They also add to a service to the community. These seems to do excellent work with providing a calm and nice environment for people with mental and physical disabilities. The practice is so clean and catered and professional. I love the it is catered to a the high end North Central families and the community as a whole. Thanks guys keep up the good work.

I really would like to congratulate the associate that has been taking care of my teeth which is Mr. Jesse! Mr. Jesse is very professional, polite, very friendly and looks professional in the way he looks, talk and dresses! I live in Paradise Valley but going to Dental On Central is totally worth it as once you trust an associate you do not never wanna change, it is like a barbershop if you know what I mean. Thanks Dental on Central for having such good professional associates!

William Jr. P. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Anthony Herro, I want to congratulate you on your welcoming, professional staff, including every person I encountered from the moment I walked in your door until I left. There is a feeling of professionalism mixed with respect and caring that is palpable in your office environment. I also thank you for your generosity regarding the xrays that were done to meet your high standards, though previous x rays had been done 6 months ago elsewhere.

Hadn’t been to the dentist in over five years. Have an extreme fear of the dentist. The hygienist’s I saw were awesome, took there time and made sure I was okay. Saw a dentist briefly he could have a better bedside manner but will wait for final opinion on my 2nd visit.

My daughter and I have been going to Dental on Central for years. Great service super friendly staff! There cleaning and cautionary measures are out standing! My daughter has special needs and Dr. Hero is amazing with her! Dr. Elgundy I can’t even begin to say a nuff good things about him and Bart!! Highly recommended Dental on Central!!!

Best dental office ever!!! From the reception desk, financial manager, huge tiara to the dentists. Everyone so nice and professional. Found them as a referral from a different dental office. Needed a root canal, but due to severe anxiety my blood pressure was through the roof. So I was referred there because they can do sedation. However, they prescribed me a medication that allowed me to get root canal completed without any issues. Recently a crown popped off, and they gave me a same day appointment. Normally I would have stressed out all the way there, but for the first time in decades I felt perfectly comfortable.

Jeff S. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Brought my other half in who is terrified on needles, doctors to the point of sobbing once he sits in the chair. He had a lot of things that needed to get done and we chose Dental on Central as they sedate patents and he needed to be. The whole staff was wonderful from Dr. Herro, Rosie, just the whole staff in general. they listened and went above and beyond. This was in December. My other half was so happy to get all the issues done. Fast forward 4 months later. Went back to Dental On Central for his checkup and I broke a tooth. I had Dr. J and Coco. All I have to say is WOW. they were absolutely wonderful. I walked in and was greeted with a smile as always and rosie came over. She was just wonderful to work with. So caring and personable. they do not push for getting things done that don’t need to get done for the money and go into detail with you what needs to be done and why and what does not and why. I was impressed on how much time that Coco and Dr. J spent with me on my visit. I never felt like a number, rushed or like Aspen Dental where there I felt like I was getting an estimate for my car. Dental on Central are wonderful. I am so happy that I found them and would highly recommend them to anyone. They cater to the special needs but if you don’t have any special needs or terrified of dentists, I would suggest going here still. Great team here and will be going to them for all my dental needs. I really wish I could give them more than 5 stars.

Jayson M. from Chandler, AZ (Source: Yelp)


First time patient at Dental on Central; what a great experience! The front desk staff greeted me with a big smile. My hygienist, Sherri was very kind, personable and gentle. What a relief; my last hygienist was so heavy handed. Dr. Herro is a class act; he took time to listen to me and address all of my concerns. This is a great office and I highly recommend it.

I recently had my wisdom teeth out. They were able to get me in on such short notice which was amazing! I hit a few speed bumps the day of and they were right there helping me every step! I cant get over how nice and helpful everyone is. From the front desk, to the back, to the billing! EVERYONE IS AMAZING! I have called a couple of time and my questions were answered right away. I can’t recommend this place and the people who work here enough!

Yvonne G. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I found this place on Yelp because it takes many types of insurance. I was hoping it was a good dental place as well. I took my son there to get an evaluation. He needed a deep cleaning which was done by Eduardo. We really appreciate the time that Eduardo took with him to ensure a thorough job, free of pain. This place also works with you on pricing which is a big help. The ladies at the desk are very friendly and helpful. Eduardo, Kevin thanks you for your excellent work.

My daughter who is a minor is a patient at this facility. Most kids or adults for that matter really don’t like going to the dentist. My daughter actually looks forward to going as they all are very polite and positive, and extremely patient. They have a way of making you feel very comfortable and at ease with no anxiety. It is the only place I will ever go to. Jesse hands down is the best at his job. Extremely pleasant and cares about the patient.

Dental on Central has been my dentist for about a year and a half now, so three regular checkups. I really like how fast and efficient they are from the moment you walk in the door. Their dental care has been exceptional, as well. The hygienists are fast but patient and always as gentle as they can be (given the circumstances 🙂 ). I like that they don’t always assume that drilling is the first course of action. I have a tooth that’s been on the edge of needing some work, but they put it on a watch and we just keep an eye on it. I like that approach. All in all, I really like the team.

Jennifer B. from Chandler, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Anthony Herro and his staff are professional, efficient, and knowledgeable. His educational background is impressive and his extensive training and continuing education is remarkable. Dental on Central is a clean and child-friendly facility. The warm colors and soothing atmosphere made coming to the dentist relaxing. My daughters were able to watch their favorite show while having their teeth cleaned! Dr. Herro was patient and kind with my two young daughters…they actually enjoyed going to the dentist!! The staff is very friendly. Everyone had a smile on their face. The location is perfect. Dental on Central is located next to my favorite grocery store, AJ’s FIne Foods! I love that area! Mostly, my experience was a 10! I will most definitely be back!!!

Cecelia M. from Paradise Valley, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I think that this office is wonderful. The front desk girls are kind and very helpful! And Dr. Herro is unbelievable! He’s got such a great bedside manner and made me feel very at-ease during my exam. I didn’t wait long and got in right at my appointment time. Michelle was so sweet and gentle. I will continue to go to this practice and recommend it to anyone who will hear it! Keep up the good work!

I have never had a good experience with Dentist’s UNTIL I went to “DENTAL ON CENTRAL”. I am 71 years old. I live in assisted living facility. A friend here recommended them highly to me. I finally went and fell in love with the whole staff! They all are above and beyond any I have experienced in the dental field. I didn’t even hurt while or after having a root canal. I have lived in many states and abroad. If I have to leave my facility, I tell you I look forward to leaving to GO to “Dental On Central”. They are THAT GOOD!

Honestly this place deserves more than 5 starts !!! I took my 5yr old who is on the spectrum & non-verbal. i was so amazed by how patient and kind all of the staff were. They didnt force my son into doing xrays after trying 2 times. They answered all the q’s we had & my son got to take an awesome toy home !!! Love this place . HIGHLY RECOMMEND .

Natasha B. from Southwest Bend, OR (Source: Yelp)


This is the best dental office I have ever been to. I have debilitating dental anxiety and the staff is very patient and understanding to my needs. They are kind, pleasant to work with, accommodating and the dental work that they performed outshined every single other experience I have had. I had a crown placed here and it looks so good and was so painless I didn’t even know which tooth it was on. Even after moving to the East Valley, I will always make the 30 minute drive to go here for my dental needs. Dental on Central should have 5 starts from everyone. Thank you for being such an incredible, conscious and friendly dentist.

All the doctors and staff were soooooo amazing! Thought I needed one root canal, but I needed two! Put me under sedation and was treated with so much compassion. I was an emergency patient today. They got it taken care of right away. Highly recommend them!
