Meet Dr. Cristina Nastea

Dr. Nastea feels truly blessed to live and work in such a wonderful community. She enjoys getting to know her patients and their families, and it is a great honor to know that she makes a difference in so many of her patients’ lives. She couldn’t ask for a better job or better people to share their smiles with her and her staff. She welcomes you all to her practice and looks forward to working with you.

Approach to the Practice of Dentistry

Dr. Nastea believes in the practice of dentistry with appropriate care and attention to each patient. She believes that dentistry cannot and should not be practiced like a factory pipeline. Every patient has personalized needs that require and deserve personalized delivery of dental care as the only respectful, professional, and effective way of practicing dentistry. 

Dr. Nastea implemented this approach to dental care in her practice. As our patient, you will be given a dedicated appointment, during which you will get undivided attention. As needed, Dr. Nastea and her staff will explain and document for you in detail any dental condition you may have; she will review your status, dental history, and the possible clinical choices; and then together, doctor and patient will decide the best treatment plan that fits your needs.

You will experience a gentle, informative, and quality-oriented approach to dentistry that’s tailored to your dental care needs in a caring, friendly, and warm environment. At the completion of your visit, you will have your dental needs taken care of and you will be advised and prepared on how best to maintain your mouth health and beautiful smile until your next visit in the office.

Practicing dentistry has been Dr. Nastea’s professional calling, and dental care excellence has been her commitment to all her patients. Over the years, she has had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, and the trust that she builds with her patients and their families are one in a million. It has always been her focus to make each person feel comfortable and at home when they come for treatment, and she and her staff work hard to give all our patients the attention they deserve and dental care they need.
