Horrible! His front desk staff was very nice and helpful and that is where it ended, I agree with the other reviewer that said he went form room to room, he didn't wait for me to be numb and then ridiculed me for complaining about it. I asked for gas and he told me I didn't need it. Real arrogant would have more compassion from a doorknob. When I asked him if I needed an antibiotic he told me I didn't need pain meds when I again said I was asking about antibiotics if the tooth was infected he told me yes the whole tooth was infected and when I asked a thrird time if I needed antibiotics he said no and walked out of the room.

So I'm not a dentist but if the whole tooth is infected and you just cut in the gum had to break the tooth in 4 pieces to get it out you have to put sutures in it and it is bleeding....I would think maybe antibiotics might be appropriate??

The staff was very friendly the dr not so much. Went in to get my wisdom teeth removed he must have over booked himself because he ran from room to room doing different procedures which I didn't care for a dr should take his time with each patient. the sedation never worked so the expierence wasn't a comfortable one. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone

I cannot say enough about Dr. Modugno and his staff. The office is immaculate and the staff are extremely professional. My 12-year-old had 5 teeth removed and they made her feel so comfortable and at ease she went through the process with flying colors. Dr Modugno even made her laugh a few times! I would highly recommend Dr. Modugno for any of your oral surgery needs! ​

Excellent doctor. I wish he was my dentist. The extraction was painless and they healed great. My only gripe is that he is very busy and it can take a while to get an appointment.

Dr. Modugno is THE BEST oral surgeon I have ever been to. Just walked in the door from having 2 wisdom teeth pulled. He numbed me up great , gave me a little gas and before I knew it we were done!! I HIGHLY recommend this Dr. If you are in need of an oral surgeon. He has an awesome attitude and bedside manner, always checking to make sure you are comfortable and not in any pain! Thanks Dr. Modugno for the pain free experience, have a great rest of summer, you're the BEST!!

Never go to this Dr.! He severed my nerve and has left me permanently numb in my lip and chin. He's always on vacation and his staff are extremely rude and getto. This is the worst dentist I'v ever seen and made a huge mistake by letting him take out my wisdom teeth. Make sure you take your time to pick a good oral surgeon before getting your wisdom teeth pulled. There's a 1% chance the dentist would sever a nerve and Dr. Vito Modungo has done it many times which I didn't know till after he did it to me.

Dr Modugno removed 4 wisdom teeth quickly and effectively. His "bedside" manner wasn't much to speak of but he was pleasant. The office staff is very nice.

After reading all the positive reviews I can rest a little easy..Will be seeing Dr.Modugno in about two weeks...My regular dentist preferred me to him..I have a total of five teeth that have to be extracted..I am praying Dr.Modugno can do them all at once so I can get it over with.I also pray he have something strong to put me right out so I will not feel not a pinch....If he as good as ppl say he is I will definitely salute and bow to him...LOL!!

Dr. Modugno is an absolute HERO in my eyes. I went to him for two extractions, after putting it off for at least 4 years. I evgen have walked out of many appointments bc I was too anxious to even let them sedate me. He ended up taking the two plus an extra that wasnt serving a purpose. I was TERRIFIED (and let him know about 17 times, lol) but he was amazing, his staff was amazing, and he got the teeth out in literally 5 minutes. My appt was at 10, and including paperwork, xray, gas/numbing, and extractions I was in the car on the way to the pharmacy at 10:45. I am day 2 post op and I have zero swelling, zero pain. Have been taking ibuprofen just in case to prevent soreness because Im a baby, but honestly I dont even need it. AFTER THREE TEETH BEING YANKED OUT, ALL ON ONE SIDE. Dr. Modugno is a miracle worker and has completely alleviated my fear of the dentist. I will return to him for an implant that I need on another tooth when I am ready to do that one, will never go to anyone else. ~~~ Daniella S.
