I am very proud to say at the age to 40 something ??...I am not afraid of the dentist anymore! I've had traumatic experiences in the past with other dentist which left me afraid to seek dental treatment for years. Then I found Sylvan S. Stern DDS. He was very gentle kind and understanding of my fear. My dental work was done in no time at all with ZERO pain at all!! At this point I am able to take a small nap as he work on my teeth! Thank you Dr. Stern!
