Dr. Sanfilippo is a very beloved character around our office, and he’s actually the original founder of Endodontic Associates Saratoga!
Dr. Sanfilippo received his dental degree from the University of Pacific, San Francisco, and he went on to complete his specialty training in endodontics at the prestigious Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA. He deservedly retired from full-time practice in 2013, but he continues to volunteer at many local clinics. Dr. Sanfilippo returns to our practice part time, because he loves helping patients so much. We are so fortunate to have him around.
When not helping patients, Dr. Sanfilippo enjoys learning Italian and fishing. He also travels to Africa to teach endodontics a few times each year. Over the years, he has earned a tremendous amount of respect from both our referring doctors and his peers, so we’re extremely happy that he chooses to continue working with our practice.
"Like others have said.. you don't want to come here but if you must it's really not that bad. I had an appointment with Dr. San Filippo. Very cool and very knowledgeable about what he's doing. I think it took longer for the shots to work then the procedure. I had a root canal yesterday and it was less painful than a cavity fillings I've had done in the past. Basically didn't feel anything. Staff is very nice and sympathetic to your pain. They must hear it a 100 times a day but they still care and want to make sure you're taken care of. If you have a choice then go see these people. You'll be very happy you did."
