DISTEFANO FAMILY EXPANDS DENTAL PRACTICE


It's an impressive feat! DiStefano Family Dentistry recently added their 4th dentist to the practice, marking a milestone for father-son team, Dr. John and Dr. Nick DiStefano. Dr. John started the practice more than 30 years ago, building it from the ground up before adding his son, Dr. Nick, to the team. The two are a gregarious pair with a passion for dentistry and helping people. That energy has translated into a lot of growth for this high-tech practice. Recently, they added their fourth dentist, Dr. Mike Fazzone. Dr. Mike graduated from Columbia University and completed his residency at the University of Utah with a focus on comprehensive dental care. The practice as a whole offers some of the best dental technology in the field including ZOOM whitening, CEREC same day crowns, 3D scanning for guided implant surgery and root canals. To make an appointment, call 860.308.1777 and tell them we sent you.

ODDS & ENDS...



*We hear that the owners of a restaurant potentially going into the old Gallery on New London Turnpike will go before the Architectual & Site Design Review Committee in the next couple of months. The owners have multiple restaurants throughout the state, including Marketplace Kitchen & Bar and Mercado Italian Kitchen & Bar. Stay tuned for details coming soon about this!


*There is a proposal for a giant townhouse development near Feldspar Ridge off New London Turnpike. The development, named Elf Way (ELF stands for the initials of the developer's daughter), would include 174 townhomes, plus amenities. The council didn't vote on a request for a zone change so this won't happen anytime soon, but just keeping our eye on it.


*The Scoop has just a few spots left for the 2023 Holiday Gift Guide set to be released on November 20th (Monday before Thanksgiving and Small Business Saturday). We would love to feature your unique offerings! To be included, email Jackie at thescoopglastonbury@gmail.com
