Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Josephine G. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient at Plaza Dental since moving to St Louis about 10 years ago. I am more than thrilled to have found Plaza Dental! Over the years, I have had 1 root canal; 2 crowns and regular deep cleanings all without EVER needing any pain medication afterwards. I can only attribute that the capable hands of their staff! The hygenists and front desk personnel are awesome!!!

I had a great experience went in for a crown and it was a quick and pain free experience. The entire staff from the door to the chair was amazing. The smiles and warm welcome were very refreshing as well as comforting when you have a fear of the dentist. It was my first experience but definitely not my last.

Everyone in the office is always so nice and helpful. I had a two part procedure done on Monday and Tuesday. The dental hygienist made sure I was confortable throughout and checked in on me during the procedure multiple times to monitor any discomfort. She did such a wonderful job that there was literally NO discomfort, which is the exact experience that you want when you’re in a dentist’s chair! She was quick, thorough and efficient and she took the time to answer all of the questions I had. She did an excellent job of preparing me for what to expect and gave detailed instructions for aftercare. I’ve moved about 30 minutes away and am still going to use Plaza Dental simply because of their professionalism and excellent care.

The dentist and staff here are genuinely caring and take their time with patients to provide excellent care and customer service. They are very accommodating and explain each step along the way so even getting a filling isn’t too bad. I couldn’t be happier with their care and I highly recommend them to anyone in the St. Louis area.

I’ve been going to Plaza for a few years and haven’t been disappointed once! Great staff! Cutrona is absolutely amazing and kind. He is very thorough and will make sure you get the best possible care! I have been recommending Cutrona to everyone. Definitely 5 star rating on Cutrona and his wonderful staff!

Jeremy G. from Brookline, MA (Source: Yelp)


Called with pain in my gums, they saw me the same day I called. Needed to schedule a deep cleaning and explained I was in pain. The staff worked with me to get it scheduled within the next two days. Everyone was super kind and helpful. I went in with extreme pain in my gums and they performed a deep cleaning. Two days later I am feeling like a brand new man! Thanks to everyone at plaza!

Willa X. from Baltimore, MD (Source: Yelp)


As someone who normally hates going to the dentist, I can definitely say that Plaza Dental is the most pleasant experience I’ve ever been through, and recommend Dr. Cutrona and the rest of the staff wholeheartedly. I’ve never had issues with the care or service here. Dr. Cutrona fixes all of my dental issues up in a heartbeat and really goes above and beyond. Everyone in the office is extremely friendly, the pricing is affordable, and scheduling is truly painless. No complaints here!

Best Dentist I’ve ever had! Just had two crowns replaced, really appreciate how my dentist (Dr Cutrona) and everyone from my hygienist to the reception staff explains everything that’s being done and are so professional and pleasant to be around! Couldn’t ask for a better experience or more satisfactory outcome, at reasonable cost and under estimate. I’m happy to highly recommend Plaza Dental Center

Deilysion Thomas (Source: Google)


MY FIRST VISIT WAS EXEMPLARY. Pleasant staff, not crowded, clean atmosphere. I Am highly impressed with the service I received. Work to be performed was explained indepth with an estimate in writing for services upcoming. My technician (BECKY) was the most pleasant person I’ve come across in a business setting since COVID started. No one seems to care about the customer anymore, which makes you reluctant to participate in situations of this nature. I have cancelled maybe 5 dental appointments since March 2019 because I couldn’t forsee going back to my previous dentist. So I searched and searched until my initial phone call was met with satisfactory results. Found that here and I am whole heartedly impressed. THANK YOU STAFF at Plaza Dental

Adam J. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


I scheduled an appointment for a cleaning just a few days in advance. When I arrived they realized that I needed a general exam due to the amount of time that had passed since my last appointment. They squeezed me in just a few hours later, and I’m pretty sure the person who did my cleaning put off her lunch and missed part of a seminar to get it done. I feel that they really went the extra mile to accommodate me. Additionally, the cleaning was excellent, the place was immaculate, staff answered every question I had, and everyone I spoke with was genuinely friendly. Based on this experience, strongly recommend.

Amy P. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr Cutrona and staff were great. Very professionally run and all procedures were explained to me clearly. Dr Cutrona filed and smoothed a botched-composite done by a different dentist the week prior. Dr Cutrona did a great job and am definitely going back for more serious work needed done. Glad I found this dental group!

Mattie Ewing (Source: Google)


Dr. Catriona was very friendly and let me know everything that he had to do to prepare my tooth for the crown. His nurse was so nice and made sure that I was comfortable and made the procedure less fearful. The receptionists were nice and professional. For a dentist office I give Dr Catriona an A plus Very patient and efficient. I am 86 years old.

Katie Walters (Source: Google)


I love this place! Everybody was super friendly! The only negative was they put the wrong info in my chart and quoted me for implants when I only needed a crown, which is waaaayyyyy cheaper then implants. The was in 2019 but I’ve been back a few times since then and they fixed the mess up and now everything is fine! Again, I love this place. Doc is super friendly and knows what he is doing

Morgan Schoer (Source: Google)


I’ve been going to Plaza Dental regularly for ~5 years now, and I’ve never been disappointed. The staff is friendly and caring, and Dr. Cutrona is thorough and helpful. Most recently, Becky and Madison went absolutely above and beyond to help me out with a problem I was having. Without a doubt, five star care. Thank you guys!

David Lamont Brown (Source: Facebook)


I definitely recommend this dental center. I had a root canal and a crown done this week. The dentist and his assistant made me feel extremely comfortable. They told me about the procedure and kept me updated through the entire thing. I have high anxiety about going to the dentist and I was pretty nervous. They kept asking me how I was and made me feel extremely comfortable. Thanks guys!

As someone who truly hates going to the dentist, the entire staff here made it not only bearable, but pleasant! The front staff are wonderful, and Dr. Cutrona is very knowledgeable and helpful. His bedside manor and demeanor is unmatched. He took the time to explain risks and benefits of various procedures, and came up with a treatment plan that worked for me. I can’t say enough about this team!

I am, and always have been, extremely pleased with the service provided at Plaza Dental. The staff is always been extremely friendly and professional dental care provided. They have always gone out of their way to ensure that I fully understand the procedures needed as well as associated costs (which are very reasonable with insurance) and have gone out of their way to make sure that I am comfortable. I’ve now had a full three page report of dental work done (including three crowns, wisdom tooth extractions and a plethora of fillings) and I’m just waiting on my final crown. I have been a patient of Dr. Cutrona for 2 years and it sounds silly, but I’m actually a little upset that I’m basically done with my procedures! Now I won’t have an excuse to go over there and hang out under the drill! At least there’s always my bi-annual tooth cleaning. The staff is always very accessible by phone and have never hesitated to provide me with information requested directly to my email inbox, which is something a lot of places would not take the time to do. I thoroughly enjoy my visits and chats with their crew, even when the drill is in my mouth. Dr. Cutrona is outstanding and always makes sure that both he and I are 100% satisfied with my dental work. I wish I knew more people in St. Louis (after moving up here from Texas), because I would certainly go out of my way to recommend Plaza Dental to them.

From the time you walk through the door, you feel like family. Dr. Cutrona does a fantastic job of making it feel like he’s known you forever, taking a real interest in not only your oral health, but also your personal life asking about vacations, families and work. As someone who hadn’t been to the dentist in quite some time, and being very anxious about it, it was a wonderful experience. Allison, the dental hygienist, also showed genuine compassion and really made me feel comfortable the whole time I was there. I highly recommend Plaza Dental!

Literally the best experience I have had at a dentist in my 35 years of living! The whole team is kind and caring! The dentist informs you of what he is doing every step of the way! Very comforting and affordable! I have struggled in the past with keeping up with payments at my dentist and have been kicked out because of that. They work with you and give you an affordable payment plan

Sheila T. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


Oh MY GOD!! I watched the video on the Plaza Dental website AFTER I had a visit and all I can say is, this practice lives up to that expectation plus some!! They are excellent at what they do from the greeting of the staff when you enter to the actual work getting done. What a great choice I made by going there. I give the highest recommendation to Plaza Dental Center. I am in the process of getting some very challenging work done but, they are such excellent human beings that I still enjoy going to the office! Who enjoys going to the dentist?!..LOL..! I LOVE Plaza Dental and special thanks to Dr. Cutrona, Dr. Kelly, the Office Manager and staff.

Toni H. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


This review is waaaaaaay overdue but better late than never…. There are not enough words to convey our gratitude for the service we received from Becky at Plaza Dental Center. My fiancé was hospitalized, and his bottom denture was broken around the bottom which caused a lot of discomfort and created a sore mouth. The problem was the timing as we were leaving town the following week and needed to get them repaired asap. I will leave out the rat race and empty promises that we were put through with a different dental provider, so we were pretty exasperated by the time we reached your office. Becky had us bring the denture there and after examining it advised that she could get it fixed and have it back in time for our trip…which by the way was to meet my family face-to-face so you can imagine our joy for her life-saving service. We have been singing her praises and have given Plaza Dental info to anyone who is looking for an excellent dental care provider. A million thanks for his million-dollar smile!!!! 🙂

All of the staff at Plaza Dental are absolutely exceptional! This is definitely the best dental care I have ever received, and they are leagues above other general dentists I have been to in St. Louis. The exam was thorough, and the treatment plan was well thought out and explained. The people at Plaza Dental are friendly and caring.

I have been a patient here for the past 4 years and have had a great experience each time. I transferred here after a first visit with another dentist that didn’t catch a major issue I knew I had and could be clearly seen on x-rays. I have found everyone working here, from reception desk staff to the dentist himself, to be very knowledgeable and friendly! Dr. Cutrona makes sure to always ask if I have questions or concerns and has referred me to specialists as needed. The dental assistants/hygienists I’ve had have been extremely knowledgeable and courteous as well.

Mike J. from Cincinnati, OH (Source: Yelp)


I needed a lot of work and I have about the cheapest insurance money can buy. Dr. Cutrona is an awesome guy who really just wants you to be well. He will seemingly work with whatever money or insurance you can come up with. Its not just a good deal, he also does very high quality work. After visiting 3 different dentists in St. Louis my search stopped here. In addition to the skill and affordability of Dr. Cutrona, the staff is incredibly friendly and the appointments always run on time. I came here because it was so affordable, but I can’t imagine I’d go anywhere else no matter what insurance I had.

L O. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Cutrona and his staff are awesome! I had 2 cavities filled yesterday. The entire appointment took less than 20 minutes, and the actual drilling/filling process took less than 5. Dr. Cutrona was super fast with the drilling, made the smallest possible filling, and matched the shade to my teeth perfectly. Even the Novocaine injection was done quickly and skillfully so it wasn’t painful. 4 hours after the fillings, I had ZERO pain in my teeth, zero pain at the injection site, and zero jaw pain because my mouth was only open for a couple minutes! Dr. Cutrona and the hygenists are also very knowledgeable and up to date on current best practices in dentistry

Thomas L. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


I have used Plaza Dental for about 10 years. The wait is usually pretty reasonable and the staff is super friendly. They take good care of me and my wife. This last time they went above and beyond. I needed a small filling and set the appointment at my last cleaning. I rely on my phone’s calendar to keep everything organized, but apparently I made a mistake when setting the appointment reminder. I showed up today, but my appointment is tomorrow. They checked with Dr Kevin and he said they would have time to fit me in! This, for an overly busy person like myself, is a life saver. I showed up at 3:30 for a 4:00 appointment. I was done and in my car at 4:09! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Brielle B. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


I love this place. Who loves the dentist? Me, apparently, now that I’ve been going to Plaza Dental. I’ve needed a lot of work done for quite some time, and they were able to provide me a great breakdown of all of the expected costs as well as the costs with my insurance applied. This greatly helped me visualize the work I was able to get done and I’m extremely happy with the service they’ve provided. Dr. Cutrona is a friendly and excellent dentist and the entire staff is friendly and helpful. I’m not sure if it’s a good thing that I’m on a first name basis with so many of them (especially the wonderful ladies at the front counter) but to hell with it, they’re awesome. They even recognize my voice on the phone; that makes me feel important. They’re super flexible with scheduling and I look forward to going to the dentist. All of the work has been top-notch (mostly fillings) and I’m not experiencing any of the pain I used to. The wait is typically short (the music they have on is great classic rock anyway) and everyone is so friendly I don’t mind hanging out, anyway!

I have been a patient since I moved to St. Louis 21 years ago. They have been always so helpful when I needed to find insurance, when scheduling an appointment and when informing me about my treatments. The place is always clean and I have become very familiar with some of the staff after seeing them for 21 years.

I have been going to plaza for almost 5 years and I have never had a bad experience, even when I had to get debridement and a crown. The staff is professional, friendly and helpful and they explain everything fully. They’re always willing to answer any questions and talk through procedures and pricing before charging you. I live about 40 minutes away now and refuse to change dentists because of how amazing they are.

Our family members have been going to this dental office for 9 years with excellent service from the Dentist and the staff. They are very professional and friendly. Many staff have been working in the office for years. We don’t say this lightly since dental care is one of the most important care needed for our health!

Exceptional Service all the way around. Dr. Cutrona performed a miracle by saving my very infected tooth. The root canal performed was flawless. The team, specifically, Lisa, Hannah, Erin, and Stacy put me at ease. Everybody was very nice, and accommodating. Among many positive things the clinic is very clean. Subsequently because of this I had no worries about hygiene problems. I was also very impressed with the billing department because I was told about the price up front. I thought this was very unique because I am used to being told how much the cost is after the services have been performed ( pay now or go right into collections). I fully recommend this clinic because you will be treated well by everyone, not just by the dentists.

Travis Hornsby (Source: Google)


Dr cutrona always took my concerns seriously and when I had a major prosthodontic need he referred me to a specialist. My wife also got a referral to an oral surgeon for a need she had. It’s nice to have a dentist that doesn’t try to keep all the revenue in house and isn’t afraid to call in specialists when needed. He gave me good advice and we appreciate him and his team!

I had 3 fillings done at Plaza today. I walked out of there thinking, “that was a pleasant experience.” Obviously a bazaar reaction to a dental appointment, it speaks to how remarkable this office is. I have had over 20 cavities and subsequent fillings. I had fillings in my baby teeth. Despite, or maybe because of, all this experience in the dentist’s chair, I am a total wimp when it comes to tools and drills in my mouth. In general I have been really disappointed by the insensitivity of most dentists to the pain and discomfort of their patients. The dentists at Plaza are the complete opposite. I had a lady dentist, and she was SO NICE! And gentle! She explained everything she was doing as she did it, she was quick, and she didn’t make me feel like a jerk for being apprehensive about the procedure. I really can’t recommend this place enough. Also, the hygienists really seemed like they knew what they were doing. ok June update: Here is a downside to Plaza Dental: when they call you, they block caller id. In general, if the point of a call is to contact the caller, or, failing to contact him or her, deliver a message or solicit a return call, this goal is frustrated by the policy of having the number come up as “unknown” or “blocked.” I don’t think I am unusual in generally not picking up calls from numbers I don’t know or can’t ascertain (I have to judge whether the call is important enough for me to stop doing what I’m doing. No information = no, not important.) Once a message has been left, I check it less quickly and return the call more slowly. The last effect is due to the the fact that returning calls from blocked numbers requires extra steps. Plaza dental, what is your average pick up the phone rate? how long does it take, generally, for people to return calls? I will bet $20, if you unblock caller id, more people will pick up and you will get calls returned more quickly. Blocking caller id is a vaguely creepy move. Who blocks caller id? Debt collectors, prank phone callers, out of state sales calls and angry exes. In short, people that want something from you they know you don’t want to give. You want customers to think fondly of your business, don’t put yourself in an unpleasant category. That’s $20 worth of consulting right there.
