There are not enough good things to say about Dr. Arauz and his entire staff. I have had cleanings and oral surgery there, with exceptional results. Dr. Arauz, at each visit, took time to explain the procedure and patiently answered my many questions and eased my anxiety. His manner is calm, kind, and professional. Everything went without a hitch and exactly as he had explained. His hygienist, Jessica, is absolutely amazing! She took extra time, not only to ensure my comfort level and under

Caring and concerned about my oral health. Always honest and compassionate with his patients. Truly cares!

I have been using Dr Arauz for a few years now. I find that he genuinely cares for his patients . He does not try to patronize or down play my concerns. He is open, honest, and patient . Which in a dentist is VERY important to me. I appreciate everything he does.

Dr. Arauz is perhaps the best Dentist I have ever been seen by. His moral and ethical background, allow him to use his uncanny ability to do what is in your best interest in the field of oral medicine. He goes above and beyond his medical duties, to present himself as a caring and compassionate doctor, with your overall health at the top of his concern. His staff is outstanding and easy to work with. From the moment you arrive, to the moment you leave, you are treated as royalty.

i don't really enjoy the dentist.....let alone a periodontist. But I have to say if you need treatment, Dr. Arauz is the dentist to see. He is a extremely caring and gentle. And to me, most importantly, he cares about the whole person and treatment, not just his specialty area. My only wish is that the office would bill medical insurance in addition to dental.
