Dr Rivera has been taking care of me for about ten years. He made beautiful crowns that look just like my own teeth to fix me up after a bike accident. I get complimented on my smile regularly and no one knows that Dr Rivera made it. I have recommended Dr Rivera to a few friends and they have all thanked me as its really hard to find a good dentist that you like.

New office across the street from Raymond James Stadium looks really nice, and is kind of cool because you can stay in your seat for X-rays, work, etc...

I'd definitely recommend to friends, fun plus is you may see some of the Lightning or Bucs players while you are at the office.

I have used Dr. Gil Rivera and Dr. Sam Caranante as my dentists for over ten years. I was referred to them by one of my best friends who is a CPA for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Why is this relevant you ask? Dr. Gil and Dr. Sam are the official Team Dentists for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

This however, is not the primary reason why I have patronized this office all these years. The office staff, led by Pam, is always so warm and welcoming. They are organized and always give you calls to remind you of your appointments.

The dental hygienists treat you like family. I am partial to Tanya, who has become a great friend to me over the years. She is friendly, efficient, and very attentive.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Sam and Dr. Gil. These dentists make your trip less painful and less of a hassle.

Along with the Tampa Bay Lightning, I highly recommend Dr. Gil Rivera and Dr. Sam Caranante, so you definitely cannot go wrong.
