Finally I Love my Smile - New Haven, CT

The experience from start to finish was excellent. Dr. Lerch and her staff are warm, caring, lovely ladies. They took their time to explain the procedure and each appointment was a pleasure. I am having other cosmetic dental work done with Dr. Lerch as she is truly an artist in her field.

Half-way Through - Orange, CT

I went to someone I had done some research on so I knew she was experienced. She is very pleasant, as is everyone in her office. Very professional but not off-putting. She explains things in detail and gladly answers any questions. I have never waited more than a few minutes for my appointment. She does required a deposit of 1/2 before starting treatment. i am paying the balance over a period of 4 months. Since I am only 1/2 way through I cannot comment on "after care" but her website suggests many happy clients.
