Drs.Papworth, Vargas and team are a very caring practice. I have been going there since the mid 90’s. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Dr. Papworth is one of the nicest people I know. Dr. Papworth and Sarah make a great team. They keep me amused by talking about current events while performing procedures to take your mind off being in a dentist’s chair. They have squeezed me in on more than one occasion when I have had a problem arise. I am so pleased with their service. They only perform necessary procedures. Dr. Vargas does a nice job filling in when Dr. Papworth is unavailable. Marta is my hygienist. She is gentle, but does a thorough job. Robin and Rachel at the front desk are always smiling. If your looking for a full service practice with a caring staff, Papworth, Vargas & Associates would be a great choice.

DR. Papworth and his employees are amazing. I’ve always been slightly scared of the dentist but in the last few years that I have been going to him, I have found him to be nothing but professional, kind and understanding. He has always taken his time to calm my fears and give exceptional treatment. I would recommend him to all of my friends and family. The staff is exceptional also and I never have to wait to be seen.

I’m absolutely thrilled with my experience at Papworth, Vargas & Associates. Recently, I went in because I had some small gaps between some of my teeth primarily due to some old, worn-down fillings. These gaps seemed fairly innoculous, but not only would I get food stuck in them almost every time I ate, but during cold weather the gaps would cause the teeth to become sensitive and give me serious headaches. But in just a few hours of work, the team fixed up the gaps and I feel a hundred times better! Plus, the dentist and the assistant/hygenist were friendly and entertaining throughout the entire procedure. The last time I was there, which was at least a year ago, I had a deep cleaning procedure. This was also a fantastic experience because not only was the team able to clear some of the gunk from between my teeth and my gums, but on this last visit they mentioned that my gum health had seriously improved due to the work. I credit the other hygenist’s suggestion to invest in a water flosser as it helped with a lot of the maintenance.

The team here was extremely attentive and did a great job cleaning my teeth. The hygienist, Marina, was very helpful and had a lot of great guidance on how to maintain my oral health. I would highly recommend Dr. Papworth, Vargas & Associates for anyone looking for great, friendly service and excellent care.

You can’t do better than Dr. Papworth and his associates–the office staff is helpful and friendly–willing to talk you through the insurance maze and the hygienist I see, Marta, is careful, kind and has great suggestions each time for improving my oral health. I see Dr. Papworth and he’s patient, practical and a perfectionist when it comes to taking care of my teeth 🙂 I highly recommend this practice!

I have been seeing Dr. Papworth for many yrs now. Always a great experience! Sarah (Assistant) and Robin (Front desk) are like family, always cheerful and willing to help with anything!… Dr. Papworth gave me my smile back in many ways, with my cleanings and even braces! Recently he introduced me product called Opalescence. I’ve always been a fanatic on keeping my teeth white, and this product is the absolute best ever. Easy to apply and results are immediate!! Love all my experiences at Papworth / Vargas office..

I had a great experience here. The team is extremely knowledgable. On my first visit, the hygienist offered more in-depth care instruction than I’d ever gotten from any other dental practitioner (plus she was incredibly friendly!). I’m in the process of undergoing additional work and was incredibly thankful that Dr. Papworth walked me through exactly what this work would entail as well as what I could expect in my aftercare. My teeth feel better than they have in years! Excellent dental care truly does make a difference in overall wellness and I would recommend this group to anyone.

SUPERIOR!!! I have been going to this dentist practice since the late 80’s; I can’t imagine going to any other practice. Dr. Papworth and Dr. Vargas will spend time explaining treatments and options and do not rush the appointment. They have a great bedside manner; very gentle, and very cautious as to not cause any pain. They have state of the art equipment that covers everything from x-rays to root canals. I don’t have the best teeth in the world and have had plenty of procedures done. All were required and never was any unwanted or unnecessary service done. The quality of the work is EXCELLENT!!! They have a variety of time slots for appointment options (which is important when you are trying to juggle work and life schedules). They never keep me long in the waiting room. I’ve never had any problem with insurance either. The entire staff truly cares about you. I moved several years ago and make an hour’s drive each way to be their patient. Quite honestly, I would drive even longer to keep them as my Dentist.

Great dentistry and amazing staff! I cannot say enough about this place and my treatment spanned over a course of months so I can attest to their consistent and reliable great service! It had been over 10 years since my last dentist visit, and I had 10 years worth of dental work to address. I was terrified of the pain and cost. There was no judgment, they were incredibly profession and they made me feel so comfortable. Treatment itself was virtually painless, although you are sensitive afterwards for a short period of time. Dr. Papworth and staff explain in great detail their treatment plan and even narrate you through each stage while performing the procedure. One thing I really appreciate is that they can manage your treatment plan according to your budget and insurance, so the bill is never a surprise and was able to pay the around the same amount with each billing cycle. My blood pressure was taken prior to my first a cleaning. I didn’t even know your BP was taken at the dentist office?! I was strongly encouraged to see my physician because my BP was so HIGH. They also lovingly told me that I must have a release from a doctor before further treatment. Due to their concern, my BP is now stable and I am now on track with my health. I am truly grateful because going to the dentist not only benefited my oral health but also because it also addressed an unexpected health issue that is now being managed.

I had a very positive experience with Dr. Papworth having some work done. I had a few cavaties filled and Dr. Papworth made it a pain-free experience. I also appreciated that he tool the time to explain everything as he was working. He also was very thorough in his examination of my entire mouth. I would definitely recommend Dr. Papworth to my friends and family.

Dr. Papworth was a great help. I was in town due to a software implimentation, when my temporary bridge broke. It was a Saturday and I thought I would not find help. Dr Papworth got me in and made me the most beautiful temporary bridge. He is such a great! Dentist. I wish I lived in the area. I would never see anyone else. I can not Thank him enough!
