When Sun City Center resident Jerry DiAntonio decided it was time for a smile makeover two years ago he turned to Brandon dentist Larry Saylor.

“I knew I needed a lot of work in my mouth and I wanted the experienced dentist completing it to have a plan,” he said.

Two bridges, several crowns and one implant later, he couldn’t be happier with the results.

“I smile a lot more now because my teeth look so much better,” he said.

Located at 213-B Kingsway Rd., Dr. Saylor specializes in giving patients like DiAntonio options for treatment to improve their dental health. His routine treatment plans can include veneers, same-day crowns, Invisalign, Six Month Smiles, tooth whitening, dental bonding, silver filling replacement, dental implant and bite correction.

“Good dentistry can last you a lot longer and cost you a lot less in the long run if it’s done with a plan in mind and done well the first time,” said Dr. Saylor.

“Our experienced and helpful staff work with patients to get the most out of their insurance benefits and help make any remaining balance affordable to them,” he said.

His office accepts cash, debit and credit cards as well as offering financing through CareCredit.

Dr. Saylor, who recently received the designation of Master of the Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD), said ignoring dental problems won’t make them go away. Instead, minor problems later turn into more costly treatment plans. DiAntonio admits his treatment plan wasn’t cheap.

“Spending this kind of money was an investment in my dental health and I wanted the work done right,” he said. “It was worth every penny.”

New Orleans resident Dan Hoffman agrees. A former resident of Tampa who still visits Tampa every couple months on business, Hoffman decided he needed to find the most qualified dentist to tackle the extensive reconstructive work his mouth required. Dr. Saylor’s experience and honesty impressed him.

“When I initially asked Dr. Saylor how much it was going to cost, he told me it would cost about as much as a small car and he wasn’t wrong,” he said.

The treatment plan involved transforming his mouth full of hollow, crooked and missing teeth to a mouth full of pearly whites. “There hasn’t been a single day that I have regretted this,” he said.
