DR. GARY SAPIENZA  I have to ask myself, how come the first thing you see when you get to this page is a picture of some other people??  I don't know, life is funny that way. Like most dentists, I graduated from dental school, went to work for someone and  eventually became the owner of a private practice. Blah, blah, blah. If I told you I was a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry what would that mean to you?  If I let it slip I am a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists what does that mean? It sounds more like a political association than a dental one. You know, every year I get a notice in the mail, informing me that I am voted one of the best dentists in the United States!   I found out every other dentist in the United States can reach the same elite status - as long as they buy a plaque from the company giving out the award. This year I think I did buy one of those plaques.  Maybe I will give it to my Mom - she could appreciate it, as long as she doesn't read this!.  Seriously,  I live and practice in picturesque Merchantville, located in the heart of South Jersey.  I love to spend time with my family; I have been married for twenty something years to a wonderful wife, Rochelle, and we have two great daughters, Gabrielle and Paige.  My family is active in its church.  I enjoy supporting my community and local schools. Throughout the year, I am involved with several charitable fund raisers.  (Oh yeah, and my favorite food group is peanut butter.)  Above all else, I would like the opportunity to meet you!

"Dr. Sapienza replaced two crowns from another dentist that had separated from the gum. Remove the old crowns and some decay under the crowns. Replaced with new double crown and reset to the gum line to prevent a reoccurrence of the previous problem. Excellent work. "

Caring, warm and takes the time to make sure you are comfortable and know the process. I hate dental visits but they always me me feel welcome, they take time with each patient and explained very detail. So glad they are in “my neighborhood”.

"I called as a new patient on Friday in a panic because my filling fell out. They called me back in less than an hour with an appointment first thing Monday morning. Turns out I needed a crown due to the filling being so large. When I say there was absolutely not a trace of pain or discomfort you can believe it. From the time I walked in to their beautiful office and was treated so kindly and professionally til the time my appointment was over all was exceptional…a special shout out of thanks and gratitude to Dr. Gabrielle and her assistant Jaz. I’ll return again! One happy patient, Barbara M"

Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.
