Dr. Diperna is absolutely Impeccable! I strongly believe that Dr. Diperna is the Best Periodontist in Allegheny County. I’ve worked as a Dental Assistant for 29 years so I am very knowledgeable in the field of Dentistry. After 3 consultations with different Periodontists I chose Dr. Diperna do my surgeries. I recently had a bone graft, surgical placement of implant and extensive gum tissue grafting. I had a very difficult case. I was anxious before my surgery. Dr. Diperna is so gentle that I was immediately relaxed. The results from my dental surgeries are absolutely Perfect! I am so happy with my smile. Dr. Diperna and his staff truly care about their patients.

I attempted to get a second opinion from Dr DiPerna on the necessity of gum surgery and he refused to see me. The office informed me that I had not been compliant with DiPerna’s recommendations in the past - which is totally true. I’m a busy mom taking my kids to all of their pediatrician, dentist, and orthodontist appts and neglected my own care. I explained this to his office but they still treated me like I was a drug addict asking for opioids.

Dr DiPerna was very thorough. He explains your care plan and reasons why one procedure is needed versus a different one. He is also compassionate and has options for those of us that are VERY NERVOUS having dental procedures. The staff is personable and professional. They explain the entire process as easy (and painless) as possible.

Visited Dr. DiPerna's office again today: Now have clean gums and white teeth! Never even knew the procedure was underway - so pleasant. Was over before I knew it. No after effects either - Except am willing to smile now! :>) Can't wait to return and see Karen and Judy again! Whatever extraordinarily high expectations you may have - Dr. Diperna's office and staff will exceed them!

Dr DiPerna made my surgery easier to handle by explaining each procedure, step by step, before he performed it. He’s caring, genuine, thorough, gentle, and professional. I think he’s very deserving of the 5 stars I gave him!

I have had several implants completed by Dr. DiPerna over the past 14 years. He is always thorough in his explanations of the treatment needed and he and all the staff in the office are courteous and caring. I have had good outcomes with all of the oral surgeries that I have needed and the follow up care is excellent as well.

Dr DiPerna is simply the best. I have unfortunately worked with numerous periodontists in my 60 years, and Dr. DiPerna combines techical excellence, manual dexterity, intelligence and a professional and caring disposition in a manner that is rare. His office and staff are excellent. All the work he has done for me (three implants) has bern excellent. Finally, Dr. DiPerna collabotates and communicates well with my general dentist and endodontist and serves as my quarterback for dental needs.

I have been a patient since the 80's. A friend recommended him and it was great that she did. I started treatment with gum grafting and then have needed several dental implants over the years.. He has always been accommodating, professional and caring. He is not only concerned about dental health, but one's entire health. I have not had any issues with the work that has been done. I definitely would recommend him (and do).
