I have been a patient at Berwyn Dental Connection for about a year- but what a year it was! The team in this office is so fantastic! They are kind, professional, warm, intelligent, and care for their patients. Dr. Peralta-Sugano has gotten me through infections, an extraction, a dental implant, and an after-hours emergency appointment because I was in so much pain over the holidays. Veronica and Bianca are so kind, responsive, and friendly. I'm thankful to have established care at such an exceptional dental office.

Dental work can be a bit intimidating. However, at Berwyn Dental Connection the entire process is professional and calming. The atmosphere is relaxing, and the staff are very personable from the front desk to the dental hygienist and even the doctors! I received a root canal performed by Dr. Lares and she and her assistant made me feel comfortable. Overall, the entire staff are professional and skilled, I'd definitely recommend.
