Berwyn Dental Connection has wonderful dentists and staff. Everyone is friendly and takes time to answer questions. They are also good with children. My two children are nervous about visiting the dentist but the hygienist and dentist always put them at ease. They let them bring their own toothpaste too!

I had nothing but great experiences and good things to say until today. I received a phone call from a law office to collect a debt. I work long hours and every time I call the office is about to close and nobody picks up. I have left a voicemail asking for a call back to pay my debt and instead received a text message “asking how can we help”. Mind you the attorney that called I thought maybe it was an attorney I was waiting for a call back from and they give the wrong name. I stupidly gave out my name and received a call back a minute later with a voicemail saying they’re attempting to collect a debt. What’s hilarious to me about the whole thing is that I called multiple times after receiving this X-ray service asking about the results because nobody ever called me back with them like I was told would happen when I left. The taller Latina with long black hair who typically takes payments after a visit took my X-rays…..seemed like it was her first time and assured me the dentist would call me. Never did-But you all sure care more about the debt. I’m being charged for something I’ve received no proof or word of with results. I will not be back. The dentist here are amazing but the customer service… although very hospitable seems very money hungry rather than caring.

I had a wonderful experience at this dentist. Everyone is so friendly and supportive. Veronica was so nice on the phone and explained everything to me. Dr Peralta-Sugano made me feel very comfortable as I needed a tooth extracted. I felt nothing!! The dental assistant was also so gentle and friendly. I have found my new dentist!

Dr. Lares and her team are very welcoming and friendly. Our family that includes 2 boys ages 7 and 9 have been coming to her office for years. Her team makes our boys feel at ease so they have a good experience. Would highly recommend her office.
