We had a very pleasant experience. My teenage daughter had her wisdom teeth pulled and Dr Swiderski was very thorough in everything he did. He also took the time to call us that night to check on how she was doing. That is above and beyond in my book. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome! Absolutely recommend Dr Swiderski to all my friends!

We were very grateful to find an oral surgeon for our special needs son. We were glad we did not have to wait long for the procedure, as it was needed right away. Dr Swiderski was able to give us special accommodations, and so the procedure and the recovery went very smoothly, much better than we expected. Thank you Dr. Swiderski!

From his receptionist with her beautiful blond and gray streaked hair to the dental assistants in there wonderful green scrubs I felt comfortable, the office was very clean and loved the big windows. Dr. Swiderski sat me down and we had a brief conference then he ask me do you want the gas? yes I replied. Once in the chair the assistant never left my side, we friendly chatted until the Doctor got in the room. Once numb he started to extract the rotting tooth, it broke off but he never stopped his motion, I am sure this has happened before. When my insurance finally kicks in and will pay for my implants. I definitely will be back. Any one needing implants need to go see David Swiderski his office is the best!

He and his staff have been there to answer any and all questions I may have, no matter how silly a question may be. When he speaks, he speaks with confidence, and looks you in the eye and focuses on you when he is talking with you. I recommend him highly, Five stars is not enough.
