Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

I’ve been a patient since Dr Darancou took over the business from Dr Ponsford. WTS, he had very large shoes to fill because Dr Ponsford was outstanding both in dentistry and as a person. Not only has Dr Darancou made improvements in the business physically his investment in technology is really unbelievable. I have had many crowns over the years and to tell you the latest was the quickest and most efficient is an understatement. I’m not technically versed in the equipment involved but watching a 3-D image being created as I watched then a design to “get” the exact measurement he wanted without sending impressions and instructions to an outside lab is incredibly impressive. No waiting, no adjustments when inserting the crown and done in 24 hours with the best fitting crown I’ve ever had. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful which starts at the top. Not a fan of going to the dentist and definitely not a fan of writing letters of recommendation but felt this one was really warranted (in my opinion).

This dentist office is great. They get you in on time and take their time with you. April is the sweetest person I’ve ever met and I can honestly say I completely trust her in the advice she gives me. She always does an amazing job cleaning my teeth and in no way rushes through it. She explained exactly will be happening in my upcoming procedure and was patient with the 100 questions I asked over and over. The front desk staff is also very helpful in explaining prices and breaking down how the insurance works. They have been very patient with me when it comes to rescheduling appointments. I would definitely recommend El Paso modern dentistry.

I can’t recommend this place enough! Dr Darancou is truly a good dentist, and he and his staff are all so kind. They were sensitive to my needs, as I have always had a fear of the dentist. They are gentle and explain everything very well. I have had two sessions with them so far, and I have two more to go. I know each time that I’ll be well taken care of. They also really try to work within your financial means. The office is always so clean, and their use of technology is so amazing. Save yourself the worry and the hassle and go see them.

The staff at El Paso Modern Dentistry was wonderful and incredibly kind! It’s always hard finding a dentist when we move, and I tend to put it off much longer than I should – I’m very glad to have decided to call here and they fit me in very quickly. The lady who performed my cleaning and exam was so kind and patient with me! Julie at the front was also very friendly and help put me at ease with understanding the billing and insurance aspect as well.

Finally a good dentist you can trust! I was very nervous going to another dentist because my last dentist was taking advantage of my insurance and not cleaning my teeth right. I was terrified to go to the dentist because of my previous experience, but Modern Dentistry staff is excellent. They take the time to learn about their patients on a more personal level before beginning treatment to make patients feel more comfortable. Dr. Darancou and his team are passionate about providing care to those in need.

Being a military family, we frequently move and have to change providers with each new city. Dr. Darancou was recommended to us and I have been so pleased. Everything from the friendly staff to the quality of service was beyond my expectation. I required a root canal and called several dentist to obtain service, but Modern Dentistry was the only office who was willing to take our insurance. We are grateful to have found a dentist who treats you like family rather than a patient.

I have been going to El Paso Modern Dentistry for well over four years now. The entire staff are amazing. My hygienist, April, is freaking amazing!! I realize you can find a good dentist anywhere; however, finding an amazing hygienist is sometimes a difficult feat within itself. I would recommend my dentist to anyone, but my hygienist…OMG she is irreplaceable I’d put her on a pedistle any & everyday. She truly is one in a lifetime and could never be replaced.

By far the best dental care I have ever experienced! The professionalism and friendliness of the whole team was outstanding. Dr. Darancou was very informative/detailed and incredibly nice. Julie went out of her way to help me schedule an appointment as quickly as possible since I was only in town for a short period of time. They actually got me in the very next day. I HIGHLY recommend to anyone!

Kim Morris Hansen (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Darancou is one of the best dentists that I have ever been to. He has an awesome “chairside” manner. He always makes sure that you are comfortable, I had a horrible toothache and they fit me in and fixed it the same day. His staff is awesome, they are all so friendly and caring. I would recommend Dr. Darancou and his staff to anyone. He is my dentist for life!

Best dentist I have ever experienced! The staff is super friendly. Dr. Darancou is very knowledgeable and kind. After removing two wisdom teeth, I did not feel any pain. I did not have to take pain pills after the anesthesia was gone. He was very careful with all the work he did. Something I love about this place is that the appointments always start on time. I have never had to wait. Also, this place is impeccably clean and nice. I highly recommend Dr. Darancou and his amazing staff.

I have never been a fan of going to the dentist, but Dr. Darancou is outstanding! He is great at what he does and has a calming presence. He is always willing to explain the process and then listen to questions and concerns. The staff is always helpful and friendly as well. This is the only dental office I would ever visit!

I was looking for a new dentist and was referred to El Paso Modern Dentistry. I have nothing but great things to say about the doctor, staff and facility. It has been a great experience and always feel very welcomed when I go as well look forward to seeing my hygienist April and Dr. Darancou. They are always so pleasant and I never experience pain or feel uncomfortable during my visit. The office is spotless and felt very safe during Covid-19. Very modern technology as well. Definitely recommend them.

Great overall dental experience, from start to finish Dr. Darancou and his staff gives you an amazing experience and treats you like a part of their family. They’re friendly and knowledgeable. This modern facility is pretty great too and leads to that awesome experience. He walks you through your treatment plan by making sure its the best option for you. Overall I am really impressed with the services I’ve received from Dr. Darancou and his staff!!! I highly recommend him. Mrs. Erica is truly a blessing, great experience and works wonders best cleaning I’ve ever had. Mrs. Julie and Mrs. Laura is the icing on the cake great receptionist.

I’m new to El Paso and was leery about finding a new dentist. I found one on google close to where I live. I called and made an appointment, which was very smooth and easy. The gals at the desk were very friendly and helpful. The dental hygienist Erica was so nice and gentle that it made getting my teeth cleaned enjoyable. The technology at El Paso Modern Dentistry was unbelievable. After my cleaning and all the X-rays and pictures of all my teeth I visited with Dr. Darancou. We reviewed my problem areas and explained everything to me in terms that I would understand. I ended up coming back for two fillings and a crown. The service by the dental assistants, Vickie and Alecia was amazing. They were so knowledgeable and gentle on me. The Dr. was so amazing too. I never had any pain or discomfort during my procedure. The two fillings and the crown was completed in less than three hours. I got my permanent crown put in the next morning and it fills great. Thank you to Dr. Darancou and all the employees at El Paso Modern Dentistry for their professionalism and their caring way that they treated me. You are all amazing and I will return and be a happy patient again and I will highly recommend them to all my friends. Harry Veruchi

This place is Amazing!! Just by talking to the receptionist over the phone I could tell it was a well run establishment. My Hygienist Toni was awesome and caring. Dr Darancou has impeccable chair side manners and made sure I was comfortable because I had sensitivity. I could also tell he cared about my oral health. If you’re looking for a dental office that’s well run with knowledge and professional staff, this is the place to go!

Amazing staff! This is the best dental service I’ve ever received. Had an emergency while no other place could get me in same day the receptionist here went above and got me in the same day for an emergency crown. The dental assistants were very curious and professional as was the dentist himself. This is now my dentist and I’ll recommend anyone needing dental work to come here. Very very clean and well maintained. Thank you!

Everyone is so friendly! Front desk, my hygienist April and Dr. Darancou! Julie is so helpful in working with my insurance and scheduling and April is so sweet and thorough in my cleaning and X-rays and explaining everything I needed to know! They asked me about setting up my next appointment and if I needed a note for work before I could even ask myself! They are 100% on top of it!

This is where you want your whole family to come for their dental needs. Not only is Dr. Darancou a skilled dentist, he and his whole staff are always pleasant and personable. When you walk through the door, they treat you like an old friend. The office is clean and well equipped. I started bringing my children here as well, because they receive excellent care that far exceeds what they were getting at the kid’s dental place we went to before. The staff is great with small children. Overall, top notch care and amazing environment. Highly recommend!

Teshanna F. from El Paso, TX (Source: Yelp)


The staff is AMAZING!!!. I could tell from the moment I called and the receptionist answered that it was a well run establishment. My hygienist Toni was awesome. The dentist Dr Darancou has impeccable chair side manners and goes above and beyond to make his patients comfortable. I could also tell that he truly cared about my oral health. If you’re in the El Paso area and you’re looking for a dental office or if you have an emergency and you’re looking for an office. This is the place to go.

My uncle and his wife retired in 1991 and went to live in Chile where Coke is much sweeter than Coke made in the U.S. After drinking Coke in Chile for several years, the health of his teeth deteriorated and when he returned to the U.S., he needed Dr. Darancou! He says he has never experienced such pain free dental work as that done by Enrique Darancou and his staff.

Absolutely amazing office. The ladies in the front reception area are so very nice and professional. The Dr.and staff will treat you with respect and your teeth pains and needs with absolute care. They make sure to keep appointments as scheduled. My overall visit if I could give ten stars I would I highly recommend Modern Dentistry to you and your families tooth-care.

I visited Dr. Darancou’s office, first for a routine cleaning and then for a crown replacement.  The dentist and his staff took time to explain the reasons for the procedure and talked me through the treatment.  They have the modern equipment and expertise to design and mill their own crowns on site.  So I didn’t have to wait 2-3 weeks for an outside laboratory.  The procedures went smoothly and pain-free, and I received my new crown in 2 days.  The doctor and his staff were friendly and professional.

After Dr. Ponsford retired I was apprehensive about someone new because he had been such a great Dentist and I had been going to him for so long. I have been pleasantly surprised and so impressed with Dr. Darancou. He is a true professional and has a great mannerism. He takes the time to answer any and all questions. His staff is very courteous and friendly. There is little to no waiting time with your scheduled appointment. It is a great atmosphere all around. I highly recommend El Paso Modern Dentistry with Dr. Darancou and his wonderful staff. Rating 5 STARS.

Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Answered all questions and concerns. Enrique Darancou, the dentist was great and I was able to have work done without having to make another appointment, even though this was my first visit. I generally have to have numbing gel to have my teeth cleaned, not this time , the hygienist was super. I highly recommend this dentist.

First off the staff is incredibly welcoming, polite, and professional! Now let’s talk about Dr. Darancou. He is so nice and did a wonderful job on my fillings! He took the time to explain my treatment and afforded me an opportunity to ask questions. During treatment he was gentle and asked how I was feeling! Overall 5 star experience! Oh and April did a fabulous cleaning!

Everything! Office staff is very kind and professional and Dr is great! The doctor takes time to explain everything to you and when he is working on you tells you everything he is doing first very good experience because I am generally scared to death of the dentist! Everyone makes you feel at ease. Recommend El Paso modern dentistry highly!

The place was very clean as soon as you walk in. The ladies at the front are quick to greet you and make you feel welcome. The dental hygienist Ericka was awesome and pleasant. They are very thorough on their work. The dentist was nice. He explained what he needed and would ask if you have anymore questions. They take x-rays and photos of your teeth, which is awesome and helps you see better what needs to be done. I like this because it better shows that what they are saying is true. Their prices for their work are great as well. Glad I decided to go here!

Our family is new to El Paso and found El Paso Modern Dentistry through an internet search for an urgent dental issue. We were able to get in early the next day and have a plan put in place for next steps and schedule appointments. The staff is very helpful, friendly, and caring. The facility is clean, family friendly, and has great/quick technology. We’ve scheduled our family cleanings and have a new family dentist in El Paso.

Laura was able to get me in on short notice due to an infected tooth that was causing pain. Hygienist Staff was extremely accommodating and personable. Convenient location. Julie was very helpful explaining my benefits and out of pocket costs for the work I needed done. Dr Darancou discussed all options with me. So thankful to have found a great dentist after recently moving to El Paso!

I am the classic “I hate the dentist” patient. I put it off and then end up having to get work done because I neglected my oral health. That stops today, because I have found an office that is amazing! Erika was my hygienist, and she was so professional and compassionate. She explained everything she was doing and was very encouraging. This is the first time I didn’t hate getting my teeth cleaned. I actually (kind of?) enjoyed it! The dentist came in and introduced himself and was also very professional and kind. He explained the work I need and prioritized it so we can the most important stuff first. I will absolutely be recommending this office to my friends and family. Also, unrelated to the care I received, but the office decor is super nice and everything was spotless. Thank you! -Jessie Kelly

Every member of El Paso Modern Dentistry is super kind and knowledgeable. My son and I have been patients for 2 years now. Dr. Darancou is very patient with me (I have a bit of a phobia of dental work), and his staff are very gentle. I had an emergency arise this weekend (my permanent retainer came lose). I called at 7:35am asking for help and was fit in that very day at 8:40am. I truly and wholeheartedly would recommend El Paso Modern Dentistry to anyone.

El Paso Modern Dentistry is a great place- I really, really get anxiety when needing anything with my teeth, but I was in so much pain that I had to bite the bullet and find help- I was in so much pain when I got to the office. The office staff is so nice and accommodating, the dental hygienist was very gentle- and the dentist was great, I’m sure he could tell I was nervous and he put my mind at ease. After he did his exam and looked at X-rays he decided I needed to go to a specialist for a root canal- he had his staff find a dr for me to go to THAT day. I came back to get a crown put on that tooth. I would continue my care except Im moving to Florida. Thank you

Went to get a crown fitted, found out I had multiple cavities. Got them filled and a temporary crown put in place until the week after I leave for town. Great dentist with tons of high tech devices to serve you and a great explanation of what he is doing at all times. Staff was friendly and courteous as well! Would recommend 10/10!

I’m usually terrified of dentists. I had a tooth break on 8/17 while I was visiting El Paso from DC, and on 8/18 I was seen by the Dr. Very quick turnaround. From the first callback on 8/18, all the staff, Laura, Julie, April, and Dr. Darancou, made me feel like I was in good hands. Usually I’m a nervous wreck at the dentist, but I felt right at home the entire time. Highly recommend EPMD. Glad I trusted my gut and the other reviews!
