Second Street Dental isn't new to St. Charles...well, not really.
The office, which looks more like a charming little home than a commercial building, has been a thriving dental practice in the community since 1947! But its new co-owner and head dentist only took over a year ago (don't let that fool you, this lady knows her stuff), so you might not have met her yet. Let's get to know Dr. Paterno...
A Dentist Born For The Job
Her passion is obvious. It will only take one meeting for you to realize that Dr. Paterno is one of the most genuine, caring medical professionals you may ever meet in a lifetime. She loves her work and really values her customers - it's the #1 thing she talks about. Dr. Paterno loves dentistry and serving everyday families.
A Dentistry Built for Families
There were several things that blew me away about this group, including their reliable reminder system to ensure you don't forget about your appointment (because let's get real, it happens to the best of us), their very friendly staff and their high level of concern for patient dental health. Yet the most impactful experience for me was how they treated my kids.
Their staff was eager to ease the stress of my kids first appointment with toys in the lobby, a friendly reception to welcome them and, most importantly, a hygienist and dentist who knew how to play games with them. Getting silly, giving them practice runs and letting my kids touch their instruments were critical steps into warming up my nervous children into their first check up. And it worked like a charm!
St. Charles History Meets Medical Progress
After being present for 3 appointments, including my own, it became clear that this practice does not cut corners when it comes to delivering the best modern dental treatment. Cutting edge technology, the most advanced equipment and highly trained staff make this group were all indicative of a company that was committed to evolving and delivering the best treatments.
They aren't limited to routine dental care either. In addition to cleanings, check-ups and x-rays, they offer the full spectrum of medical and cosmetic treatments, such as Invisalign corrective programs, filling crowns, veneer work, smile enhancement and more.
Yet, even with their progressive array of services, they haven't forgotten their history. In speaking with Dr. Paterno, it was quite plain that they were proud of their history as a St. Charles medical staple and were not about to let that story fade. They are committed to retaining all of their customers from years past, while welcoming new families with open arms. One of the ways they are able to open their doors to new families is through accessible programs, like affordable annual dental plans and flexible financing options for services like Invisalign. At Second Street Dental, patients enjoy a lot of options.
