Dr. Stephen J. Palluotto, D.M.D. At his Hamden practice on Whitney Avenue, is by far, the best dentist I have ever had in my entire life. He is professional, knowledgeable, and has never lost his passion for his profession. In these most difficult of times, our health providers need our support more than ever. Thank you Dr. Palluotto, for all you have done for me. You have my respect and admiration. Please keep doing what you do best.

Ari did great at her first visit to the dentist! She came along with me for my cleaning and Stephen kept her nice and calm. She didn’t bite him once! Got some great advice from Dr. Stephen J. Palluotto DMD both dental and parental. Much appreciated!!

I contacted Dr Palluotto due to a major issue with two of my teeth. He was the only dentist that advised me he would come into the office that night to assess my pain. I was pleasantly surprised with his professional nature and expertise. He was able to alleviate my pain and permanently fix my teeth. I would highly recommend Dr Palluotto to my friends and family. Thank you!

Best dentist I’ve ever experienced. Gentle, caring , Friendly, Very concerned about patient well-being and trustworthy- never tries to upcharge. I came to him after a dentist in his area presented me with an astronomical treatment plan.Dr Palluotto presented me with a sound and reasonable plan and put my mind at ease that I did not need all the treatment that I was previously scared of.He was an exceptionally good listener during the whole process. He and his staff treated me like family, made me laugh, and Always had an awesome recipe or restaurant suggestion ! I already sent him a friend for an implant and her 2 children.

I went to Dr. Palluotto because of excruciating tooth pain. I confess that I only picked him because of how close he was to my home. I found the right guy! Not only did he help alleviate the pain but he was so kind and compassionate. After 10 minutes I felt like this guy was an old family friend. To top it off, for the next 3 days in a row he called me PERSONALLY to ask how I was doing! I would’ve been happy if someone on his staff did that but it was the Dr. himself! His dental work ain’t too shabby either. I recommend Dr. Palluotto to everyone! I would give 10 stars if I could.

Great Dentist … Very experienced, caring, gentle, thoughtful, and kind! Always quick to tell a joke or share about a new place to eat adding more comfort and care to what can be a scary situation to some. Have seen him working with children, teens, adults, and retries with the same passion, caring and superior knowledge that sets him above the rest! I am thankful that I meet him and recommend him to all I meet!

I have been a patient of Dr. Palluotto’s since 2012 and have had a wonderful experience! Upon graduating from Quinnipiac University in Hamden, I was looking to switch from my family’s practice back home in MA to somewhere local. Dr. P’s office made this a seamless transition! Every time I go in for an appointment I feel welcome as soon as I walk in the door. Dr. P’s positive energy, sense of humor and professionalism instantly make you feel very comfortable. I knew from moment I walked in the first time I was in good hands! Over the past couple years I have had a few minor dental procedures and I have been very pleased! Dr. P always communicates what is going on throughout the procedure and his experience and expertise are quite apparent. In the years since I have been a patient I moved to Stamford, CT which is 45 minutes to an hour away from the office. My experience is consistently wonderful and despite the drive and possible traffic, I will not be looking for a new dentist anytime soon:) I highly recommend Dr. P!
