The entire office staff is so friendly and they all make your visit extremely pleasant.

Michael, Portsmouth

These have to be the best people in dentistry..

Matt S, North Andover

After not having been to the dentist in a long time I was nervous and embarrassed about returning . My fears quickly dissipated as both Dr. Gallo and the extremely nice woman who did my X-rays made me feel as comfortable as possible both physically and emotionally throughout a very stressful and painful morning. I can’t give enough positive praise for their work and (for myself anyways) more importantly their chair-side manner . I left feeling well taken care of and very silly for being worried in the first place. My visit wrapped up with Kathy at the front desk going above and beyond on the phones tracking down an appointment for that afternoon so I could end my day without my face hurting. Thank you to everyone who helped me yesterday!

Renee Balfour, Andover

Outstanding experience! They always go above and beyond!

Susan Bradley , Andover

Everyone in the office is consistently friendly and professional. They work hard to make you feel like you are their most important client.

B McC, Charlestown

Best Dentist around

Steve J, Andover

Excellent, very nice practice, welcoming and friendly. Great hours and convenience. Very high quality of work. Hygienists are gentle on teeth and gums. And, Dr. Gallo did a wonderful job on my crown work. Dr. McCarthy is always friendly and knowledgeable. I've been a client for 10 years and highly recommend this practice.

J. M. , N. Andover

I appreciate Dr. McCarthy’s professionalism, concern and kindness. He has been my dentist for decades and the fillings he installed back then are still in great shape. The staff is also compassionate and professional.

Chuck T., Andover

Just an all around great environment. Staff, Hygienists and Dentists know their patients and even the patients’ family members. Very warm and welcoming.

Kevin B., Newbury

Rosemarie is fantastic ... I'm sure to news to anyone.

Richard Buck, North Andover

A positive experience with Rose and Gallo.

Susan F, Gardner

Tony p, Plymouth

Daniel B., Andover

Nancy M, No Andover

Rosemarie and Dr. Gallo are both so lovely and professional. Perfect combination of qualities!

Hallie M, Andover

Great experience.

Leonard chicarello, Groveland

Always a great visit. Great team of caring professionals.

Katelyn S., Andover, MA

This was my first appointment at the office and everyone was very thorough, attentive, informative and courteous. Dr. Gallo walked me through the exam she was doing step by step and Kristen did a great job cleaning my teeth and was a pleasure to talk to. My husband will be calling book for his first appointment soon as well. Thanks for the great experience!

Karen T., Methuen

As a first time patient, I had the best experience! The staff was overwhelmingly (and sincerely!) friendly, starting with Karen at the front desk. Everything was explained thoroughly and performed as stated. Dr. Gallo and Solangel were fabulous and my tooth was fixed in one visit. They were also able to fit in a cleaning while I was there so that I wouldn't need to make another appointment. And, on my way out of my appointment, I was introduced to Dr. McCarthy who was very gracious and welcomed me as a new patient. Great experience and I highly recommend them!

Taisha W., Andover

My family and I have been patients of Drs. McCarthy and Gallo for 12 years after receiving a recommendation from a neighbor. We receive wonderful care from the friendly, competent staff and couldn't be happier with our dental care.

Leonard c, Groveland

Long time customer. Always an enjoyable visit. Friendly environment and wonderful personnel.

Gregory T, Andover

I’ve been going to Dr. McCarthy for almost 30 years. He’s a caring and highly skilled dentist. He’s been so kind as to come in when the office was closed for a holiday to treat me. I don’t know why my teeth always act up when their office is closed, but Dr. Gallo followed in his tradition and was so kind and accommodating when she treated me on an off day, too. Five stars doesn’t seem enough for this office.

JB, Tewksbury

Wonderful staff. They were extremely friendly and helpful as always. I am a white-knuckle dental patient but dr. McCarthy always makes me comfortable.

Don M., North Andover

The service and expertise provided by the doctors and staff is 5 star.

Mindy C , Andover

Thanks to the team for their patience with my super fidgety 7 y-o!

Ann C., Andover

As a new patient, I had no particular expectations. ( I’ve had excellent dental care for many years with other dentists, in other offices.) Dr McCarthy’s thoroughness and obvious knowledge exceeded all expectations and then some. His exam was comprehensive with state of the art diagnostic equipment I’d never seen and he was gentle where I had some tender areas. His staff - Heather, Kristin, Kathie and Karen - could not have been nicer and more focused on my good care. The office was recently renovated and I think they got it just right - soothing pastel colors and artwork in a music free, fragrance free, very comfortable setting. I felt cared for and cared about every step of the way.

Michael , Groveland

Always great coming !!!

Alex V, Andover

Great customer service, professional environment, caring professionals.

Corey M, Andover

You guys were great both times I’ve visited- phenomenal customer service and detailed exams by caring professionals- thanks!!

My dental visits have always been an excellent experience at Dr McCarthy’s office. I have had horrible times with dentists in the past which rocked my confidence with dentists off kilter!! Over the last 20 plus years I have experienced nothing but positive experience with the staff and dental work done by this dental practice.

Ken A, Methuen

I had a long visit for maintenance, xrays and cleaning. Dr. Gallo is great. Explains everything clearly. Her staff is just as good. Pleasant, friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend.

Natalie, Andover

The staff and office are amazing! Love how clean and modern the office is... And Dr. Gallo is thorough and just has such a kind demeanour!! Also love Jenna my hygienist! Would recommend this office all the way!!

David, F

Kristin is an outstanding hygienist who is always in a positive and upbeat mood. Actually, I’d like to offer that all of Dr. McCarthy’s staff are kind, considerate and compassionate care-givers. If there ever was an “A Team”, they would be first ballot selections if it was up to me. A visit to the dentist’s office is something that I no longer dread, this coming an admitted big baby adult male patient! Btw, nice digs!

Susie Vogel, Andover

Great experience.

Karen Fraser, Methuen

Love Everyone at Franks! They alll make going to the dentist a pleasant experience. Frank himself is kind and compassionate. Interesting to “talk” to. He’s great!

Jim P, North Andover

Amy is always very personable and professional. In short, she’s wonderful!??

Cheryl Iodice, Dracut

This was my first visit with Dr. McCarthy and honestly my first visit with a dentist in over 5 years. I had a completely enjoyable time and how many people say that about going to the dentist ???. Mary Anne, Jenna, and Dr. McCarthy were all super nice, informative and helpful. Thankfully I didn’t have many issues even though it had been a while since going to the dentist, but I will definitely go back for regular cleanings and when other issues need to be fixed. I didn’t get oversold on anything either, which is important to me as my last dentist was too much in that area. Thank you for making my first encounter so pleasant.

Renee B, Andover

Excellent experience with crown replacement. Dr McCarthy took time to make sure I would have zero discomfort, as well as attending dental professionals who worked with him in the process. They all have a fantastic sense of humor, which was much appreciated!!

Lorraine P, North Andover

Very welcoming practice. I’m a newer patient at this practice. My experience so far has been a very positive one. This year I’ve had a cleaning, x-Rays, and just completed having a crown put in. The office is squeaky clean, has state of the art equipment, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this practice to folks.

I have been a patient of Dr. McCarthy’s for 29 years now. At my last visit I realized just how many familiar faces have been there through the years as well!

I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my dental health.

Renee Balfour, Andover

Dr. McCarthy was amazing. I get anxious for cavity fillings and he made me feel great and calm. He talked me through what he was doing and made me feel like the procedure was not as big a deal or as worrisome as I was making it out to be. It was a quick, painless, and good experience!

Toby M, Boxford

The team is the total package! From the front office to dental hygeniests to dental assistants and the dentists... you couldn't ask for a more caring, professional and skilled group of professionals.
