About Us & Our Team

The Island Dental Health Team

The ladies of our team bring more than exceptional talents and their extensive knowledge of dentistry to our practice. They are a caring, friendly, compassionate group and they complement each other and the practice well; the true definition of a team. Their camaraderie and comfort with each other translates to our patients and makes for a very pleasant dental experience. Most dentists dream of working with such a fun and caring team, yet Dr. Faiella has the pleasure of experiencing it everyday.
