Vincent Laz.

"Thank you for helping me.  It's tough to say how well it's healing at this time. I do think that you maria are an earth angel whether you know it or not.   it's more than just being nice.  It's your aura energy that I read from you How you present yourself as a true friend from heaven. Your assistant in the room was nice but needs more experience though especially taking the X-rays! You might want to see about one that's more professional ok.   Amanda  at the front desk  is a sweetheart, very knowledgable, and is a keeper."

Dear Dr. Vettraino,

I wanted to write to thank you for all your diligence and the fine work you did on my poor tooth.  I was impressed with your skill but also moved by your humanity.  I realize that the first time I came in especially you could probably smell the fear coming off me, but you really put me at ease.  While I would not wish this on anyone else, I do know where I would send someone if they needed a root canal.

Thank you,

David Yang

Dr. V,

Thank you for all you've done, and especially the most recent procedure. 

All my best,


Thank you so much for your excellent and oh so GENTLE work in saving my tooth  Dr. Melissa! I am so happy with your incredible skill to get through a post and remove the infected root left behind by my former Endo. And... thank you so much for taking such good care of my fiance's problem and the President of my office. I got such a big thank you from her about you! You really are the best!!!!

Linda Peden

I really do all that I can to take care of my teeth and have spent a lifetime brushing the teeth that I've been determined to keep. A root canal is something I never wanted to do again and yet when I needed one Dr. Melissa was recommended to me. Now I know why. She is the best, a true master of her craft. She seems to be able to do her work without too much discomfort for her patients. Awesome job. It almost didn't hurt and that was a real blessing for me because I still had nightmares from a root canal that I had 10 years ago with a different dentist. I hope I never need another one but if I do Dr. Melissa is the only one for me. She knows her stuff. thanks so much.

Yuri Sirko

Dr. V,

I want to thank you so much. You're not only my doctor, you're my friend. Thank you!

Carl Schwartz

Dr. Vettraino and her staff are extremely competent, patient, and kind. You are put at ease as soon as you enter her office. Dr. Vettraino is most definitely my choice if I need endodontic therapy. She is very accomplished and gentle. All your questions are answered and she explains what she will do and what to expect. The result of her skill and experience - procedures that are TOTALLY PAINLESS during and after my root canal. I would without question recommend Dr. Vettraino. Thank you Excel Endodontics!

Patricia Rafferty

Thank you to Dr. Vettraino and her staff for making my recent procedure comfortable and as painless as possible. Their compassion for the patient is very reassuring.

Fran Incmikoski

Dear Dr. Vettraino-Bachstein, From the initial telephone inquiry to the gracious goodbye after the procedure, the Excel Endodontics staff was superb! I will recommend Excel Endodontics to everyone! Any fear that I had was immediately gone! Thank you again for providing such a fine, valuable service!

Murray Savar

The staff was very pleasant and professional. I almost forgot I was getting a root canal because I was so comfortable. This was my third root canal and this was the best experience. Dr. Bachstein can really handle the tooth, she is the best! I thank Dr. Palazzo for the referral.

I recently moved to Philadelphia from NYC. I started experiencing some notable pain in my mouth and it turned out that I needed a root canal. My (new) Philly dentist, who was referred to me by my NYC dentist, recommends Dr. Melissa Bachstein, for the root canal. The dentist told me that every single patient who he referred to Dr. Bachstein reported the same extremely positive experience with her and that she was extremely pleasant and very easygoing. Well, I concur. She's very real and down-to-earth. She took the time to listen to my concerns and immediately put me at ease. I felt comfortable and just knew that I was in good hands. I experienced no discomfort and it was over before I knew it. Dr. Bachstein's office is not only beautiful, but more more importantly, it's immaculately clean. Both the office manager and Dr. Bachstein's assistant were extremely nice and very accommodating. I was also impressed with receiving a personal follow-up phone call the next day from Dr. Bachstein to see how I was feeling. I am so grateful that I was referred to Dr. Bachstein. I highly highly recommend her. You will be in very good hands and you will not be disappointed!

Remi Barnes

Everything is fine. Everyone is very very nice.

Dr. Melissa Vettraino Bachstein & Staff:

Thank you very much for the root canal service you provide me... I really appreciate your staff getting me in on the same day...


Rosemarie I.

And she does it again! Dr. Melissa is truly a gift from the Heavens. Hearing the pain I was in, she took me in the same morning! I am so grateful to know I'd never hear "I'm sorry, can't see you until...". And she is so very gracious about you jamming her schedule, smiling all that matters is getting me out of pain now. Of course, she finds and fixed what the dentist could not find yesterday. I so adore you, Dr. Melissa!!!!!
