Biography

Dr. Timothy Garofolo has been practicing dentistry since 2002. He is proficient in nearly all aspects of dentistry including dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, and root canal therapy. His former fear of dentistry has helped him create a peaceful environment and an enhanced chairside manner. Dr. Garofolo is Cerec, Galileos CT Scan, and Invisalign certified. He also received a fellowship with the International Association of Implant Dentistry.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

Patients should choose The Dentistry Collective because our top priority is to deliver a truly exceptional dental experience. We will remain on the frontier of innovation to improve the services we render from the technological advancements our industry has to offer, to the serene environments that we passionately create.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

The top 3 treatments that I focus on are implants, full mouth reconstructions, same-day smile makeovers, and same-day crowns/bridges.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I am most proud of our team, our culture, our community involvement, and our desire to ensure that every patient has the best possible experience in our office. We take pride in giving back to our community and we do this in multiple ways. Annually, we have a Smiles For Veterans Event. At this event, we offer free dentistry to as many veterans as possible.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I most enjoy treating patients that need implants, a full mouth reconstruction, or a same-day smile makeover.

    I had a great experience here. I received a gentle cleaning from very friendly staff. I liked that a CT scan was included in my dental.

    The office is at the Dentistry Collective is so nice and all of the employees are extremely friendly and caring. One of the best dental experiences I've had. Location is convenient, right off the 15 freeway and parking is a breeze. The technology they have is top notch and I felt extremely comfortable during the whole experience. My insurance combined with an in network discount made the pricing extremely reasonable for the work that was done. Would highly recommend.

    Amazing office with kind and responsive staff! Gave such amazing care, better than even offered by other dentists. They even gave me a blanket during my cleaning! I’m going to stick with them.
