I’ve had several different insurance coverages over the years so I have been to several dental offices and I must say no other place offers as much care and kindness as they do at Garden State Dental Associates. The staff is incredibly kind and very helpful in answering any questions or concerns you may have regarding your teeth or any dental knowledge in general. They make you feel very com…
Love it here. Everyone is extremely friendly and very gentle :-)
I am a new client to Garden State Dental due to insurance change and I am so happy I made the switch! All the staff is friendly and inviting to the office. My hygienist Cassie in particular was the best of all, she was professional, kind, and did a great job. I highly recommend making the switch to Garden State Dental!
friendly and efficient…amazing work.
Great work and fantastic Staff, Dr Aiello and his assistants really make you feel comfortable. Extremely professional and I felt no pain.
Friendly staff, always accommodating
This is the best dental facility, they are friendly. The dental hygienists are really gentle. The dentists offer so many ways to reconstruct teeth when needed. They help you with multiple payment options and check with your insurance coverage before applying procedures that may not be covered. Going to the dentist usually causes me anxiety; I look forward to my dental visits! They are simply the b…
The doctors and staff at Garden State Dental in Toms River are amazing! Highly recommend them! I was experiencing pain on a Wednesday morning and they fit me in as a new patient the next day at 4pm. I filled out the paper work they have posted online and I was seen promptly at my scheduled time. Unfortunately I had to have a root canal but the during procedure I was made as comfortable as possible…
Dr. Aiello did my orthodontic treatment and I had a wonderful experience with the doctor and the staff!
Staff is always friendly ! I’ve been coming here for many years and can’t imagine going anywhere else !
I was nervous since it was my first time In 31 years seeing another dentist other than the one I went to my whole life! I got there and the experience was amazing from Bernie at the front desk to Cathy who cleaned my teeth, she was so gentle and very thorough with the cleaning and explaining everything, my teeth have never felt so good and everyone was so pleasant to be around!! I made my next app…

Got a cleaning from the hygienist Cassandra and she was amazing! Everyone is really welcoming
Very good experience, Kathy is a very competent hygienist. Dr. Aiello came in to check X-rays and completed my visit promptly.
Very professional, friendly and courteous staff. I would recommend this dental office highly!
I have been going to this location for almost 5 years. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. My hygienist is awesome! She always makes me feel comfortable and truly cares. I’m so glad I found a dentist that I like.
Absolutely LOVE this office! Everyone is very friendly but still professional-and what would we do without Kathy and Dr. Aiello?
Two children in braces currently and we couldn’t be happier with the treatment they are receiving. Staff is always welcoming, accomodating, and patient. We have also been coming to the office for dental services for the last 5-6 years and have been continually impressed with the hygenists and Dr. Aiello. Highly recommend!
Dr Aiello is the best! Patient, gentle, thorough and efficient. I’ve never trusted and dentist in my life and am not a fan to have to go but with Dr Aiello you’re in good hands!
All of the staff are pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. They are very professional and friendly. I have never had an issue at the office.
Friendly and efficient front desk. Dr. Aiello is the best! Always listens to your concerns and is very accommodating to your needs.
I went to Garden State Dental for my braces. Dr. Mike made my teeth nice & straight! I finally feel confident every time I smile :) Thanks to him & the wonderful staff for all that they did. You guys are awesome!
Always a pleasant experience. Great staff but Kathy my hygentist is who i appreciate the most. My family and i have been coming to GSD for years now and each time we leave very satisfied! She is kind and very professional and does a very thorough job cleaning our teeth!!! Wouldnt go anywhere else!
The entire staff is very friendly. initially the entire procedure was fully explained as well as payment info. Dr. Mike was the best, no pain during three extractions Going back today for follow up
I was extremely greatful that they could fit me in for an emergency visit! The dr and staff were very very nice and explained everything very well!!
Went in for a cleaning and check up. The entire staff is just so pleasant and they do a great job. From making an appointment to fit my schedule to handling my insurance questions they are very helpful.
Thanks for all you do! My boys have beautiful smiles because of Dr. Mike and the great staff at Garden State Dental! Thanks for being so accommodating and compassionate too.
I wouldnt go anywhere else for my dentisty services! Love my hygentist Kathy! She is thorough and so very pleasent!! The staff is always courteous and professional!
I have been phobic of dentists for many years, until now. The staff and Dr. Mike are so calming and look out for your every need, not just your teeth. I would never go to any other dentist office again. I used to have panic attacks when at the dentist office and I have not had one since my first office visit because the staff is calming and patient. Love you guys!!!!
Both myself and my children have had great experiences at Garden State Dental. I had braces as a teenager and did not wear my retainers so my teeth had shifted and were crooked. As an adult I was apprehensive to get braces again. Dr. Aiello put my mind at ease and thoroughly explained what he could do with braces to make my teeth once again straight. After less than a year wearing braces my teeth…
I was very happy with the care I was given. Everything was explained to me in detail with every procedure that was performed and what to expect. Tbe staff was great and very caring.I’m also very grateful that your office is working with me with providing me with a payment plan that works with my budget so I can get the proper dental work. Not many places would do this and I really appreciate…
Garden state dental is the best dentist office I’ve ever been too. The office is very clean and the staff are all very friendly. They are pretty efficient with sticking to schedule appointments. I would recommend this place to everyone!!!!
