Pearl Dental Care was started by Dr. Gary Pearl in Chimney Square on Dixwell Avenue in 1987. The practice started from scratch with initially only 1 dental treatment room. With a burgeoning reputation the practice grew enough to support a dental hygienist and within a few years a greatly expanded dental team. 

Since 1999 we have been located in our current location on Dixwell Avenue closer to the Parkway. The core values of the practice remain as important today as they were in 1987- to build relationships with our patients and provide them with the latest dental technology and an overall genuine experience. 

​Technology has advanced greatly since our founding and Dr. Gary’s son, Scott, is now a partner in the practice. Looking ahead, we hope to continue acquiring the latest in dental technology and increasing our community presence.
