We had a great experience with Dr. Swiderski and his staff. My son had all 4 wisdom teeth removed and everyone was so helpful, and kind and made the whole process easy and fast. Highly recommend Dr. Swiderski!
- Michelle K
This medical team was amazing. I have a lot of fear going in for any care and they listened to me and took good care of me. I had to have teeth removed and the surgery went very fast and good. I am feeling much better than expected after surgery and I know if I have any trouble I will be able to reach out to them and receive care.
- Joy L
I just had two wisdom teeth pulled last week and the process could not have gone any better. Dr. Swiderski was kind, confident and compassionate and the whole office was warm and friendly. Highly recommend!
I just completed my triple tooth extractions and dual implant procedures. From start to finish everything went very smoothly and without a glitch. I’m extremely happy with the results. Dr. Swiderski is a friendly, compassionate and highly skilled surgeon who I recommend without hesitation. All the procedures were completely pain free and done in an efficient, professional, cost effective and timely manner. The staff is fabulous as well, always highly concerned about your comfort and well being and always patient in answering all your questions. The Mid Valley is extremely fortunate to have such a superb facility in our midst.

We would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Swiderski and his team. Very happy with the care my son received for his wisdom teeth removal procedure. Very clear post-op care instructions were helpful and he had no problems at all after surgery.

Doctor explained everything about surgery and recovery. Great office staff. My daughter felt at ease as she went back for procedure. Great experience for 1st dental procedure ever 😉
- Kimberly F
Thank you for making my experience a good one.
I was unsure about getting dental implants at first. I thought there would be a lot of pain and discomfort. Was I ever wrong! This is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Thank you Dr. Swiderski!
- Doug B
This office is one of the most friendly offices I have been in, I was not there because I wanted to be but was there because I needed to be there. As soon as you walk in the door to greeting you to take you back - everyone is friendly, caring, and happy to see you. Dr. Swiderski is happy to see you with a genuine smile on his face and then will explain everything so you know exactly what is going on. This office makes an unpleasant experience easy and painless. Caring, professional, excellent are 3 words I would use to describe this office.
- Lisa Y
I loved it. The staff was amazing and it was just a great experience. I knew exactly what was happening and I felt very comfortable during the whole experience
- Stephen U
Doctor Swiderski is very professional caring doctor with a great sense of humor, which helps to take anxiety away at the appointment. He cares and calls his patient at night after the surgery to see if you are ok. I had 3 implants done and will not go to anybody else if I need another one. He also has a great team working with him.
- Iryna F
Two of my children have required multiple extractions for pre-orthodontic treatment, and I have had one surgery myself. We have experienced a total of 5 office procedures so far and have had an excellent experience every time. The entire staff is welcoming and compassionate, the office is beautiful and comfortable, and the care is top notch. I highly recommend Dr. Swiderski and his staff for any care you may need.
- Dana M
Great care from everyone , from front office to the Dr. and assistants. Everyone took very good care of me through my procedure . I will return for all of my surgical needs as well as my family. Thank you for getting me out of pain .
I have had numerous dentists and oral surgeons over the years. Dr. Swiderski ranks right at the top. He has pulled several of my teeth, performed a bone graft and did several implants. All procedures were successful in that they were completed fairly quickly and did not have any after surgery complications. Dr. Swiderski personally followed up at day end on patients progress and their concerns. He runs a well functioning practice, his staff know their jobs, work well together and make his patients their priority, as does Dr. Swiderski.
- Gary G
I highly recommend Dr. Swiderski. I was somewhat nervous about dental implant surgery but he put me right at ease. He was fast, efficient and very professional. I had an excellent outcome & will definitely go back to him if I ever require another implant!
- JoAnn B
My experience with Dr. Swiderski and all of his staff including the front office were the most helpful and courtious Team I have encountered in the Dental field. I would highly recommend you choose them first before moving forward on any important surgery for you or your Family.
- Robert H
The staff was compassionate and professional. Could not ask for more attention and cooperation. Dr. Swiderski was friendly, concerned and professional. A post surgery call to check my status is a reflection of his overall treatment. Great dentist
- Henry E
Everything went so well. The office is such a pleasant, calming place (although I did accidentally walk in the wrong door). The medical assistant that I worked with was amazing. She did everything -- took xrays, looked at my case, set up the OR, gave the shots, assisted with the extraction, and so nice! This lady might consider medical school!? Dr Swiderski came in with a big smile, very friendly and made me feel this was going to be easy. The procedure went well. A little tough getting out the roots. I had some pain afterwards, but one day after surgery I'm having no pain at all. Thanks!
- Evan L
I would highly recommend Dr. Swiderski. He made me feel relaxed and put me at ease. He called to check up on me the night of my surgery. It was nice to have someone check up on me to make sure I was doing good. I was expecting to be in pain, after having 5 back teeth pulled. I didn't have any pain after one day surgery.
