Patient Comments (11)
Laurel, MD |
I have been a patient of Dr. Vargas for over 10 years by way of introduction from my dentist for prosthodontics. He is a gifted dentist and very exacting. I highly recommend him for general dental care and as one of the best prosthodontists in the area.
in Dunkirk, MD |
Dr. Vargas and his staff are wonderful. I came to his practice about 4/5 yrs ago. I was at my wits end with previous dentists, failed crowns, root canals, even fillings. I had been to many who all gave me a different dental plan that would line their pockets but kept me spinning wheels with no resolution. After I consulted with him, he and his staff "we" decided on a treatment plan and it was done in a timely fashion. He is a wonderful person who takes pride in his work and his patients.

in Washington, DC |
Staff is rude and hygienists do not follow instructions. I asked the hygienist to use the water pick to clean my teeth when I made my appt, followed-up a few days before my appt. and spoke to her, mentioned it again the morning of my appt before she started. She did not use the water pic. Not sure if she knew how. I complained and the hygienists was rude. I complained to the Office Manager. and she was very rude to me. Very rude. No professionalism and the Dr. was never available to help.
in Upper Marlboro, MD |
Dr. Vargas and staff are friendly and would definite recommend to others. I have been a patient for over 10 years had never had an issue so I keep coming back, awesome dentist and staff.
in James |
Love Dr. V and his staff. Very friendly, practically painless. Best experience I have ever had at a dental office!
in Bowie, MD |
I have been seeing Dr. Vargas for 24 years and I would highly recommend him. I was missing a number of teeth do to my going to a 'puller' dentist rather than one who would save teeth when I was in my early 20s. Dr. Vargas provided me with implants that gave me back the ability to chew and enjoy food once again. I have been seeing him ever since and I am 77 yrs old now. I would not go to anyone else. He is an expert in my eyes, or should I say mouth?
