I went to see Dr Arfanis for some cavities to be filled and all I can say is it was a simply wonderful experience ! I do not enjoy going to the dentist but Andrea and Dr Arfanis make it far far better than simply bearable ! The office is clean and the staff friendly , the wait is never too long either. He uses excellent technology and nothing he did hurt at all. Thank you all for reframing scary dental office visits and giving me an excellent dental experience !

It's so clear that really cares about your health. The office is very nice, the staff is kind and warm, and the hygienist was very skilled. I have lived in several areas of the country and I've gone to about a dozen different dentists over the last 20 years. Dr. Arfanis and his staff rank at the very top.
