I have recently moved my dental practice to a new building and had to build new office space from scratch. I decided to go with a contemporary look where reception area and dental cabinetry in operatories would make the central focus of the design. Sterling was recommended to me by a dentist from Rhode Island, and I quickly realized that going with them was the best decision made on the whole project. First of all, they hold high ethical standards even under pressure and limited project time. I can say that Sterling was the only team of all contractors who completed their work exactly on time and with the highest quality.
You can count on a fact that Fotis will respond to your messages in a short period and that Sterling crew would go beyond and above to work with the architect, find the best solution and implement it. Julio, Sterling’s on-site team leader , is an exceptional craftsman who stayed well after regular working hours to meet the deadlines.
The cabinetry design and implementation were excellent. Great company and very, very professional. Highly recommended.

Thanks to Fotis and his staff for supplying us with the dental cabinets for our latest expansion project. The cabinets came in exactly as promised, complete with all of the details, quality and measurements that were specified and requested. The workmanship is second to none, and the installation went seamlessly and with great care. Even when we needed a slight adjustment of two of the drawers, a technician was on-sight to complete the adjustment and make sure everything was in good working order. Thank you again!

To Whom It May Concern:
It is with pleasure that I write this testimonial for Sterling Architectural Millwork and the designer of the project, Mr. Fotis Gazis. I recently completed a renovation of my sterilizing center at my office. It was the last room that I needed to update with my recent office remodel. I was replacing an old “Stericenter” unit which had served me well since 1995, but it was time to add a more modern look to my sterilization room. I was in particular interested in a clean (sterile side) and a set up (non sterile side). Most of the designs I had looked at through the dental supply companies, just showed one large unit that was similar to what I was replacing. I wanted my center to have two sides, which clearly separated the clean from the dirty instruments and set ups. Additionally, I wanted to hide all my computer hardware as the hub and patch panel for my computers, originated from this room. I found that having all the wiring exposed like that, made this room look very messy and contrary to the clean, sleek look that I was hoping to achieve. With those ideas in mind, I was referred to Sterling to evaluate my needs and concerns. Who would think a computer company would make such a referral, but I trusted their input and contacted Sterling.
Fotis Gazis, the designer for this project met with me on a timely basis. We designed the center and incorporated all the specifics and details that I felt were important for such a project. Lighting and simplistic clean lines were what I asked for, as well as a set up station for the clean items to be transferred to the holding area. I had seen this type of set up in other centers from dental manufacturers but did not like the price or quality. With a budget in mind, I was able to incorporate all the specifics that I wanted for clearly half the price of the competitors. The quality was also exceptional, and I would highly recommend that an interested client, go out of the box and speak with Sterling Millwork. They were efficient and very professional in their services. Lastly, their installations was timely and we were able to go the project with minimal down time.

Sterling Millwork and Fotis Gazis and his team created an environment of comfort and relaxation for me during the time of our total renovation and creative planning. Many times during challenges with the building, Fotis was there without asking, to step in and offer his expertise and guidance. It is because of him, that our office looks the way it does. With all of the urban type setting of exposed duct work and lighting, Sterling’s cabinetry brought it all together. It is the furniture and dental cabinetry and the bathrooms and reception area. They over-delivered and out-performed the dental industry and they have set a mark that will be hard to beat.

Sterling Architectural Millwork built the extensive cabinetry for our new pediatric dental and orthodontic office in Glastonbury, CT. Sterling proved to be an excellent company. Their work was very good. For instance, our front desk has complicated curves that required fine craftsmanship to build and install. The product is very impressive. We also found Fotis Gazis and his staff to be very amenable and accommodating. As happens in construction, there can be instances of confusion or discrepancies. Fotis consistently said, “no problem” and came up with solutions. He strived to make the dentists’ experience pleasant and easy. Overall, I strongly recommend Sterling Millwork for anyone interested in cabinetry for an office setting.

I was exploring my options for cabinets for my new office and decided to go to Yankee Dental to see what my options were. I had spoken with several of my dentist friends and they all recommended I have custom cabinetry made and provided me with names of companies they used. However, when I met Fotios, the owner of Sterling Architectural Millwork, and his team at Yankee I knew they were the ones who I wanted to work with because I loved the fact that the owner was at the show and the whole team seemed very honest and passionate about their work. I called them up when my architect finished his drawings and I was very happy with their estimate which was much lower than the one I have been given by one of the big dental companies. There is no middle man for Sterling Architectural Millwork so they can provide one with high quality work at low cost. The work they did for me is exceptional. They did the whole office cabinetry for my 1800 sq ft office and my contractor, who is hard to please, was very impressed with the quality of work they did and decided to use them for his future projects. It was very easy to work with Fotios and his team and I have been recommending them to all my colleagues.

When I began to put together plans for renovating my existing office space, Sterling Architectural was recommended to me and it was the best decision made during our project. I went up to meet with Fotis at his showroom and factory in Springfield, MA. It was well worth the trip up I-91!! He greeted me at the door, we looked at all the amazing products in the showroom and then he walked me through the area where they manufacture all the millwork. It was all very impressive. I was on a very tight time schedule, closing for only one week, to do a complete renovation, and Sterling Architectural was up for the challenge. Renovations are many times more difficult than new builds due to problems that can arise, but any problems were handled quickly and professionally. Fotis himself was there on demolition day and actively helped to remove existing millwork!! During our construction week, his installers were always punctual, courteous and worked extremely hard to get done in our tight time line, staying for as long as it took to get the job done! On the day we were resetting the office, Fotis stopped by to make sure everything was just perfect. I would highly recommend this stellar company for not only the excellent craftsmanship, but also the outstanding customer service. We reopened after only one week and patients are just amazed by our transformation!!

If you are building a new dental office or renovating an existing one, you need to consider Sterling Architectural Millwork for all your custom cabinetry needs. For our project, Fotis Gazis and his team worked closely and collaboratively with our architects in Austin, Texas to design, deliver, and install everything from stunning furniture- quality front desk to a spectacular showcase, highlighting our CEREC milling machine so that our patients can see it in action. Most impressive was their ability to fabricate clinical cabinetry to match our A-Dec pre- manufactured cabinets right down to the exact same laminates and solid surfaces. In addition to the high level of quality, we received exceptional service that was on-time and on-budget. It truly was a pleasure working with Fotis and his team, and we would absolutely use Sterling again for any future millwork needs.

WOW!!! What a Find!
We discovered Fotis and his company, Sterling Architectural Millwork, at the 2013 Yankee Dental Meeting. We were in the planning stages of relocating our General Practice dental office. Fotis designed a custom, semi- circular reception desk, lab cabinetry, a stunning private office, and duplicated an entire A-Dec Sterilization area that was beyond expectations, as well as customized to our needs. He and his expert staff not only installed what they fabricated in their shop, but moved cabinetry from our old office and customized it to fit the new space. Of all the contractors on the project, Sterling was at the top. The cabinetry is beautiful and functional, and we are constantly complimented on their work. The two hour trip to our office was never a concern or an issue. The project was completed on schedule and on budget. I would not hesitate to recommend Sterling Architectural Millwork to anyone considering dental cabinetry.

Sterling Architectural Millwork came highly recommended by colleagues of mine and my expectations were far surpassed. Working with the team at Sterling was a pleasure all the way around. Each member of the team is courteous, helpful and professional from the office staff to the installers, to the amazing owner of the company, Fotis Gazis. There is a meticulous attention to detail and excellence in terms of the workmanship which follows through to the install. I have received numerous enthusiastic comments from my patients and fellow professionals on how beautiful the cabinetry and millwork are. Thank you.

We have been extremely pleased working with Fotis and Sterling Architectural Millwork. We had multiple design meetings to assure that we shared a vision of the end product. The quality of the build and the precision of the matching edges on the numerous doors and drawers are quite ideal. His installation team was courteous and neat. Our time frame was very tight, and Sterling delivered, meeting a very tight deadline.

There is not a single day that goes by without a patient commenting on how beautiful the millwork in my office is. Fotis and the team at Sterling are real artists in a way that you just do not see nowadays anymore. The meticulous attention to every single little detail is evident every time I walk into my office and see my front desk waiting area, as well as every time I open and close a cabinet drawer or door. I would absolutely recommend these guys for any and every job involving millwork for any purpose. They are fairly priced, hardworking and respectful, and deliver an amazing end product.

We are completely thrilled with the cabinetry from Sterling Architectural Millwork. In a project that had more than its share of other problems, Fotis and his crew were some of our heroes; coming through on schedule with a great product. We customized and adapted a major dental manufacturer layout to our needs and Fotis was able to seamlessly make everything work. Precise attention to detail, and quality materials fabricated on state of the art equipment resulted in an end product that is as good as or better than what I would have gotten from a major dental manufacturer and it was customized to my space and needs at ½ or less the cost. Can’t recommend him enough.

Feldman Orthodontics has worked with Fotis and Sterling for over 20 years, setting up and/or remodeling two offices. The quality of his work has allowed us to continue the relationship year after year. When a change in the original design needs modification, “no problem” is the response. Fotis makes certain you are happy. And when deadlines are an issue, he is there to meet the crisis. Superb cabinetry, superior design, and quality workmanship….that is Sterling Architectural Millwork.

When I was building my new office in 2010, I looked for a cabinet company that would provide us with exceptional quality and competitive prices. We decided to go with Sterling. Their quality was excellent and they knew exactly what I needed, much better than any of the major dental supply companies. The installation went better than expected, and I have no issues what so ever with the cabinets so far. When I had a minor issue with the reception desk facing, almost two years after installation, they took care of it immediately and went above and beyond what was needed to make sure the problem never comes back. Excellent company. Great people. Very professional.

The work performed by Sterling was of the highest standard of dental cabinetry I have seen. The detail and finish was very well done, as well as the installation. Everything was delivered and installed on time. In fact, any adjustments after the installation were well accomplished, without delays. It was a pleasure to work with them on our project which was rather large.

The extra time that Fotis spent with me finalizing our already well developed cabinetry plans is now paying handsome dividends. Being able to customize ergonomics has had a notable positive impact on our ability to efficiently deliver dentistry.

Fotis Gazis and the team at Sterling Custom Cabinets did a phenomenal job with the construction of my new office. Fotis took the time to meet with me multiple times to make sure that I was comfortable with the layout of the cabinets. He provided helpful suggestions, based on the space for each room. I was very happy with the service and knowledge that Fotis provided. The installation team did a great job on installing all the cabinets from the operatories to all non-clinical areas. The reception desk that was created by Sterling provides an extreme “wow” factor when patients come to the office. I would recommend anyone to use Fotis (Sterling Architectural Millwork) for their dental office needs.
