03/07/14 5 5 5 5 Dr.Arena is my dentist and my family dentist and has been for many years. Dr. Arena has been working in this area for over 15 years and has had way over thousands of patients. I just went for my 6 month check-up, everything looks good. Dr Arena over the years has done a bridge,crowns, fillings, cleanings and lazar whiting for me. My husband and children love her and her staff,they all have have had dental work by her, also my parents have had work done by Dr. Arena when they are here. A very caring dentist with great skills and a kind person.Will go out of her way for you.

20/06/14 2 1 2 2 I do not want to negatively effect someone's livelihood. But the care was terrible and took months. Appts. took hours as the Dr. scheduled too many patients at once. The "real" tech was relegated to filing insurance claims while a "trainee" was doing procedures he was unqualified to do (not his fault-no real training or license). I had to ask for the real tech when he couldn't figure things out and instead jammed things into my mouth. I would leave the office and the temp would fall off on the way home. Bite hurt but Dr. in a rush esp. once she was paid. Six months later I went to a new dentist and was told that two of the three crowns were done improperly and had margins. As a result,bacteria reinfected the root canal on one. Need 2 new crowns. Got 2nd opinion that confirmed it was true. Had first $900 crown drilled off (money down the drain)and a temp put on. Retreated root canal $1600; now will need to pay for new crowns. My instinct was to RUN when I first went here-wish I had.

25/07/13 1 1 1 1 This was the worst dental experience of my life. Her 19 year old assistant did more work in my mouth than Arena did. He tried to yank out a temporary with pliers in one hand and his other hand on my forehead. I couldn't believe it. My mouth was killing me and when she did the procedure it was extremely painful. That was over six months ago and the crown she put in is still sensitive and hurts, and it doesn't look so great either. All she cared about was being paid in full. And I was even threatened that she wouldn't finish anything or even look at me unless she was paid in full. OMG! Never again.  Respond

24/05/13 1 1 1 1 I have been to many dentist and this BY FAR was the worst experience I've ever had. I left there with cracked lips from where she pulled the sides of my mouth without putting moisturizer, her mother who was working at the front was sooooooooooo rude, didn't want to answer any of my questions and even insulted me. They are not compassionate people and just after money money money. Oh, and a year later, I've got so much pain in my mouth from the teeth that she worked on--sensitivity that I've never had before..DO NOT GO TO HER. The only reason I went there if because she was supposed to be the best dentist in Naples. Whoever voted her the best must be in her family or friends trying to get her more business because she is the worst and her office is the worst dental office I've ever been in.  Respond
