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.

So happy I chose The Dental Connection and Dr. Lares. I’ve been going there for over three years and am very happy with the level of care and attention I get from Dr. Lares and her crew. All of the staff is so accommodating and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at ease, especially Veronica, one of the receptionists, who is the first person to greet you!

I am one of those people who is afraid of the dentist. I searched around and read every review for the Berwyn Dental Connection. All great reviews! So I was having tooth pain. I wanted an extraction. They got me in the next day! Dr. Lars was so amazing and all of her assistants were too!! So I do have high bp. They checked it before doing any type of procedure. It was high. So she wanted to wait to proceed to make sure I was ok. After a few minutes of talking it went down and she was able to pull my tooth. She was informative and patient and kind. I will be back to see Dr. Lars. I 100% recommend Berwyn Dental Connection ❤️❤️

Really warm and welcoming staff! I just received the most thorough cleaning of my life! The Dr. Lares was fantastic and adjusted my night guard for me and made recommendations for preventative care. Appreciate the wonderful care and service!

My 4 year old son and I just had our teeth cleaned and per usual we had the best experience ! The staff always makes us feel welcomed and like we are family. My son feels so comfortable with the staff as well as Doctor Camila that he didn’t even wince when asked if he wanted to start his cleaning (in a separate room) while I got mine done. He absolutely loves going to the dentist! Doctor Camila and staff always make sure that my concerns and questions are answered and are super flexible with appointment scheduling. They are truly the best!
