My first appointment today. I have never felt more welcomed or comfortable in a dentist office. All the employees have the utmost respect for Doctor Proto and it shows. Everyone took the time to make sure I understood what was going on, and to explain in detail if I had questions. Dr Proto is not only very knowledgeable but very kind and professional as well. 5 stars from start to finish. Thank you.

Dr Proto comes with my highest recommendation. 5 stars just isn’t enough. He is knowledgeable, fast, has amazing staff, uses the latest technology, is ultra concerned about his patients being pain free, has been very flexible during multiple emergencies, and frankly is just a great person to talk to. Having travelled the country for work for the past 25 years I have been forced to see a variety of dentists for all kinds of procedures. I am fortunate to live to close to Dr Proto’s offices so lucky to have him as a dentist now.

Dr. Proto has the best office. The girls are so friendly and you just feel at home there. Dr. Proto is the greatest DDS there is (pain free too). He is just such a nice guy. Love the office and anyone I have recommended feel the same. Happy with all of his staff.

From the moment I you arrive, the entire staff extends themselves in every endeavor. The patient’s comfort is THE utmost concern of Dr. Proto, Dr. Serigano, and the entire team. My family and I have been patients of Dr. Proto since the mid 80’s! We travel from as far away as NYC and Port Jeff because they are not only talented and trained in the latest techniques, their concern and care goes well beyond the norm! Truly the best in dental care, I would never consider another practice!

I LOVE Dr. Proto and his office staff!! Not only are they professional, they make you feel like you’re the only patient they have. They really take the time to get to know you as a person, and they are invested in your excellent dental health. Dr. Proto is top-notch! He is up-to-date, tech savvy, and can handle any situation. I have supreme confidence in him, and I never mind going to the dentist!

Proto Dental is the most professional, caring, thorough and pain-free experience i’ve ever experienced in any dental office or medical facility. The things that go right include scheduling flexibility, on-time appointments, expert care and great follow-up and most important: great communication throughout the care process. You will love Dr Proto and his A-team staff! Steve

So what really is a Root Canal. This is the question. And I who played with Dr. Proto when he and I were kids possibly on the same spot where I had the procedure am not quite sure I know what one is. But this I do know. The procedure was done efficiently, quickly and successfully. And Thanks to Dr. Chris Proto (my cousin on my Mom’s side) and his assistant the procedure was no more invasive than a general cleaning with my Hygienes Cathy. Proto Dental. What a great Team.

Dr. Proto’s office is always nice to deal with. Very caring staff and it’s always nice to see familiar faces over the years. Would highly recommend to anybody looking for a new dentist been going here for years and so have other family members of mine. The office is always clean and I wouldn’t hesitate to tell anybody to use Dr. Proto. Donna is also a great hygienist and always a pleasure to talk to!

I have been going to Dr. Proto over 20 yrs. I have to say it is the most satisfying experience I have ever had going to the dentist. I now drive 30 miles for my appointment and would drive further if I had to. The staff is most courteous. Dr Proto can make you laugh. But more than that he really cares for his patients as does the assistance. I would highly recommend this Dental Practice

I just switched to Dr. Proto based upon a friend’s referral. I needed MAJOR dental work done and wanted to make sure I had the best of the best. Well, I did! Instead of trying to hide my teeth when I smiled, I freely smile bigger than ever! Dr. Proto is gentle and a perfectionist when it comes to his work. To me, he is like an artist who settles for nothing less than a masterpiece. He has all the top technology and equipment needed. All the dental assistants, hygienists and ladies in the office are sweet and always so pleasant. I travel pretty far for him. But, it is definitely worth it. Clearly , I highly recommend Dr.Proto!

My 4yr old daughter had to get a baby root canal and Dr. Proto and his staff couldn’t have been more gentle and supportive. My daughter was so happy and relieved that her pain is gone and she can chew on both sides of her mouth. For a pretty scary procedure, she really loves the dentist…maybe the treasure box has something to do with it too. 🙂 Thank you Dr. Proto!!

Dr. Christopher Proto of ProtoDental has been my dentist for the last 10 years. Dr. Proto is so professional, takes his time with each patient and is conservative in his approach to dentistry. He will never talk you into a service you don’t need. From the front desk to the check out, the staff makes it a seamless experience. Staff is welcoming and friendly. I. Ever have to wait and never feel rushed. I have bi- yearly cleanings with Kathy. X-Rays are only used when needed. They even have stopped asking me “do you use your mouth guard at night?” No shaming here!! Barbara Brownyard

As a senior with much experience requiring dental care, I can’t say enough about the above excellent experience with the office of Dr. Proto in all categories. Dr. Proto is an extremely competent and caring professional with a staff of equal credentials. The office is a warm and friendly immaculate environment and a pleasure to visit. Patient since 2011

I would recommend this dentist practice to anyone! From the first phone call, to my first visit and beyond the entire staff is SO nice! They take the time to listen and truly get to know you and show that they truly care and make you feel as comfortable as possible! The dentists are so knowledgeable and explain everything so thoroughly!

It is always a pleasant experience at Dr. Proto’s office. Starting with Dr. Proto, all of his staff is compassionate and professional. And, most importantly, Dr. Proto is an excellent dentist — careful and sincere. I always recommend ProtoDental.

There are no words to express how Dr. Proto has changed my life. I have always had fear of the dentist and unfortunately my teeth suffered from that fear. Dr. Proto not only cured me from my fear but he also gave me the most amazing smile with my amazing implants which he worked with me to achieve. I am constantly told, wow, you have amazing teeth and I always say you can have this also. I have always been envious of people who had a great smile and now I can say I have one also. This was not only done for looks but for health reasons. I now can chew and digest my food with no problems. Dr. Proto surrounds himself with an amazing staff who always welcomes you with smiles and helps keep you calm. I now look forward to going to the Dentist but only because I know the person I am seeing is the most unpretentious human being and deserves all that he has accomplished in his life. Thank you Dr. Proto and Staff Mary Lou Klammer.

What can I say…… From the moment you’re greeted at the front desk to when you walk out the door, you are treated like family. The entire staff is always polite, helpful and they always greet you with a smile. As far as Dr. Proto? The best dentist period!!! Want a painless dentist? He’s the one you want. Just 2 days ago I had work done where he had to inject a needle the size of a railroad spike ( LOL ) into my gum and I didn’t feel a thing. How about a dentist who actually shows you x rays and explains to you what needs to be done and why? Dr. Proto…….He will always do what’s best for you…..You’re in good hands and your teeth will thank you. I’ve been going to Dr Proto for 28 years and I wouldn’t trust any other dentist.

Our family has been patients of Dr. Proto for over 15 years, as usual his professionalism and attention to detail was excellent. The staff is also so friendly and kind. A huge shout out to his wonderful office manager as well, she goes beyond to help patients. If you are lucky enough to have Dr. Proto as your dentist never go to anyone else.

Love this place. I had an issue with my insurance but Barbara, the officer manager, was a trooper and figured it out. My insurance kept denying payment for a mouth device for my sleep apnea. It took months of fighting and I’m so grateful to her for getting my refund from the insurance.

I am not a fan of the dentist. Especially when my mother worked for an orthodontist while my brother & I grew up and should would be poking around our mouths constantly. I haven’t had insurance in a long time and to say my teeth are in a bad way is an understatement. Dr Proto made me feel as if my case was not hopeless. He helped make me feel as if there was still hope for my teeth. Dr Proto’s staff from the 1st phone call, confirmation phone call, check in, and dental asst were amazing. His staff is a pleasure to work with and are a wonderful reflection of Dr Proto.

My 10 year old had his first cavity filled today, the dentist was beyond wonderful explaining every step to him and keeping him comfortable. She even did it without novacaine!! He didn’t even flinch once. Highly recommend. We have been for cleanings also and Donna and Kathy were fantastic with my 3 kids and myself! Glad we switched to Proto!

The finest dentist I have encountered. A visit is just about a pleasure (what dentist can one say that of?) and it feels like visiting family owing to the friendly environment. Dr Chris Proto is a charming and friendly individual who is extremely careful to avoid causing pain and in reducing stress. He is thoughtful, caring and extremely skilful. His helpers and staff are equally caring and thoughtful.

Simply lost a cap however it was late on NY’s Eve…Ugh! On their next day back in the office, Dr.Proto and his amazing staff were able to fit me into a very tight schedule. As always, the warmth and genuine concern was apparent from the moment I entered the front door. I drive from the Port Jefferson area to this Babylon location because they are far and away…the best. My adult children travel from NYC to the office that has taken care of their dental needs for over 30 years. No question, Dr. Proto and his staff are worth the effort because they’re THAT good.

Have been a patient for over 25 years. The care, service, cleanliness, and professionalism is outstanding from the front desk to the Hygienist and the Doctors. Dr Proto did my inplants over 12 years ago and I just developed a small cavity. I would highly recommend Proto Dental, and give it 6 stars if I could. Joe Fruendt Babylon NY

Dr. Proto truly cares about his patient’s happiness and self-esteem. If you aren’t smiling when you walk into his office, you will definitely be smiling when Dr. Proto is finished with you. EVERYONE in the office is truly concerned for the patient’s well being. I am so grateful to have been referred to Dr. Proto and would refer ProtoDental to anyone looking for a healthy and happy smile.

You won’t find a better Dentist or staff. State of the art services with a high priority on patient care and satisfaction. Office staff is always friendly and accommodating. Office space is extremely comfortable and visually pleasing. Wait time is always minimal. I highly recommend ProtoDental for all your dental needs from regular cleanings, fillings, tooth extractions, crowns and implants.
