I fist went to Perico in 1978 (Dr. Nevins), now I see Dr Hanratty. I get the best dental care at Perico. All the hygienists are excellent (I have cleanings every 3 months). I highly recommend.

Referred by my dentist for some extractions. They got me in right away for diagnostics. They had a cancellation for the Dr. consult so that is happening right away as well. Awesome!
