Founders

Perico PC was founded in 1966 by Dr. Gerald M. Kramer. Perico PC operated out of a white house by the ocean in Swampscott, Massachusetts. This same building houses the main office of the Perico Group to this day.

Dr. Myron Nevins joined Dr. Kramer in 1967, followed by Dr. Gary Reiser in 1970. The doctors maintained their primary practice in Swampscott, but also travelled to Maine to provide periodontal care. In 1973, Dr. Roger Wise joined the practice, followed by Dr. James Hanratty in 1986. It would be 20 years before Dr. Simon Bernstein joined in 2006 and supported Perico PC’s expansion. Dr. Thomas Sterio followed in 2012 to further sustain the expansion.  Most recently, Dr. Daniel Sabra and Dr. Rory Lock have joined the Perico family.

In 2007, in order to expand the area of patients it was able to serve, The Perico Group opened its second location in the Metro North suburbs of Boston.  This second location was quickly followed with a third Perico office in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston. In 2018 Perico announced the expansion of their Wakefield location into to a new, state of the art facility in neighboring Reading.  The move was announced in early 2018 and completed in August. The Perico-Reading location provides a central, easy-access location to patients along the I-95 corridor, and was designed with all of Perico’s unique patient goals and educational meetings in mind.  The Perico-Back Bay location also continues to makes itself convenient to those who live or work in Boston. Fall of 2018 will also see the opening of The Perico Group’s newest location, Perico-Chestnut Hill. This exciting new location will provide access to patients outside of Boston while continuing to maintain the original legacy of excellence that patients and referring doctors expect from The Perico Group.

Regardless of the physical location and 50 years in practice, patients can expect to receive the same superior periodontal care by a clinical staff dedicated to the pursuit of excellence. Professional staff supports efforts to provide each patient with a complete, rounded, seamless treatment experience of care and courtesy.
