Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Arfanis ""My patients mean the world to me. Their continued overall health is important. I became a dentist because I wanted to help people get better and stay healthy."Dr. Arfanis

Dr. Paul Arfanis believes in a "whole health" approach to dental care. Why is that important? "If you find a problem in the mouth, you may find an early indicator of much greater health problems down the road." He has helped patients avoid critical health issues by performing thorough examinations, explaining his findings, and working with their medical doctors.

Preventive dental care is important throughout your life, no matter your age. By practicing good oral hygiene at home and scheduling regular checkups, you can help keep your smile bright and healthy for many years to come."
