The whole team at Masterpiece are truly masterpieces as individuals!!  I came to Masterpiece Dentistry after a traumatic experience while getting a crown.  Dr. Pappas finished the crown for me, and thankfully sent me to an Endodontist prior to the final crown being put on as I needed a root canal.  The whole team is fabulous and I’m so grateful I found them to complete the work and with the highest of quality.  THANK YOU! 🙂

Just a phenomenal experience. Dr. Papas is attentive, answers any inquiries you may have, and made the filling of my first ever cavity a delightful – weird term to describe a cavity filling – experience. Desiree is bubbly, carries a great conversation and makes the prep process very simple. Cathy! First of all, my teeth feel fantastic after a cleaning and she really knows how to give you an ego boost. Cleansing for the teeth and the mind. And Karen, she’s on top of everything, super responsive and knows how to work with you. In short, you cannot go wrong with the team at Masterpiece Dentistry.

Everyone at Masterpiece Dentistry provides top level service. Karen at the front desk is organized and so helpful, Cathy is the nicest, most caring dental hygienist we’ve ever met, and Dr. Pappas is thoughtful and skilled. They’re a dentistry that is honest and trustworthy, only recommending services when you’re really in need of them. They’re a pleasure to work with.

The moment I walked into masterpiece, I felt right at home. The staff was super welcoming and were excited to see me. It’s the type of feeling you want when walking into the dentist. From there things only got better. The person who cleaned my teeth was fantastic. They felt great. Then I had my consultation with Dr. Pappas who went above and beyond. He told me things and informed me of issues that my dentist of several years had never mentioned.

We have been going here since we moved to Boston from London six years ago, and we recently convinced my parents to make the switch.  It’s a great place.  Dr. Pappas is a pleasure to deal with and great at his job, but I have to say, the highlight is Karen and Cathy.  They are hilarious and a pleasure to deal with.  And they do little things like chap stick, blankets, MSNBC, warm wash cloths and whatever they can to make what can be an unpleasant experience comfortable.  I actually look forward to going to the dentist.  They’re a team worth supporting!

So, this is how I started and how my smile currently looks like (awful pictures, but they work!!). Huge difference! I dreamed of a straight and nice smile for all my life and now there it is! And I just owe it to dr. Pappas and his whole team. I’ll never thank them enough for all they did. Always kind, professional, accommodating. The office location is super convenient and the facility is nice, super clean and comfortable. Karen, Kathy and dr. Pappas are wonderful people: they truly care about you and make you feel part of their family. I will definitely keep going and suggesting dr. Pappas to everyone I know! Thank you!!

Everyone at Masterpiece Dentistry are amazing! I’ve had 3 different hygienist and each are better than the next. Cathy is so outgoing and friendly, that it stops feeling like a dreaded dentist visit! They care so much about your comfort and do everything they can to make sure you aren’t in pain. Dr Pappas is thorough and proactive to make sure my teeth stay healthy. I can’t recommend Masterpiece enough!

This is the best practice around. Karen, Cathy and Dr. Pappas are a fabulous team and always make things work be it an emergency or a cleaning appointment. I’ve been through a LOT with my teeth and they have been there every step of the way, cheering me on! If you want caring, talented and devoted people caring for you and your choppers then look no further 🙂

Hilary D. from Brookline, MA (Source: Yelp)


I love the team at Masterpiece Dentistry! Each and every one of them is very warm, and welcoming and not to mention very efficient! Dr. Pappas is very experienced and never recommends anything that is not required. I have referred several people to their offices and all agree, they are amazing. I will continue to do so and always look forward to my next checkup! Hilary

Karen K. from Natick, MA (Source: Yelp)


The entire staff of Masterpiece Dentistry is fantastic!  They are patient and caring, they listen and advise, and they are always there during the good times and bad.  I have never had a bad experience.  Cracked tooth, no problem.  Rushed root canal, we’ll make sure you get the best care.  Regular routine maintenance, spectacular.  Their level of professionalism is outstanding, and they are a joy to engage with on a personal level.  Patient for life.

I’ve been a patient there for many years and can attest to the incredibly high standards from Dr. John Pappas to all the other hardworking members of the staff. They are thorough, efficient, prompt, friendly and excellent at follow-up, whether it’s booking/re-booking appointments or simply checking in to make sure that everything is fine after a procedure. They have always made room for me in the event of an emergency (like a detached crown!). You could not be in better hands than with the folks at Masterpiece Dentistry at Copley. My strongest recommendation – they are also very handily located, right near Copley on the Green Line. The best I know of in the Boston area.

Joe D. from Dedham, MA (Source: Yelp)


I started visiting Masterpiece over 15 years ago when I was working in Back Bay. Despite not working in the city for the last 13 years, I continue to go to Dr Pappas and the team at Masterpiece. The people are terrific and the quality of dental care is superb. I highly recommend Masterpiece Dentistry for your and your family’s dental needs.

Samantha J. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I really liked the practice. Karen the secretary is very nice and knowledgeable when it comes to insurance. The Dr. Is very thorough and practical. The hygienist was very gentle and did a great job. I also have anxiety with the “Dentist” but they are so gentle and talked me through everything it went really well. I will be going back and recommend others go there as well.

M. J. from Sharon, MA (Source: Yelp)


I had seen a few orthodontists to have permanent retainers put on and was turned away because they felt my bite was too tight to fit permanent retainers on the upper an lower teeth.  A co-worker recommended I see Dr. Pappas and I am so glad that I did because he was innovative and successfully put the retainers on!  Everyone at the practice are wonderful so I now go there for my regular cleanings too!

Jenny A. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Pappas and his staff are just fantastic! Precisely what you would want in your dental practice – knowledgeable, super-clean, state-of-the-art, friendly, honest, and fun! I personally have had crowns done by Dr. Pappas and later been asked by an oral surgeon “who did your crowns, these are perfect.” I also did Invisalign to correct some slight crowding – super happy with my outcome -I really really wish I had done it much sooner. Over the last few years, I have converted my whole office to this place and everyone, whether its veneers, or the calls to check in on you, or the bday cards or the emails to check your appointments, is just raving

Masterpiece Dentistry is amazing! Ever since I was little, I’ve always hated going to a dentist appointment, but Dr. Pappas and Marissa changed my perspective. They took me in when I hadn’t been to a dentist in 3 years! They have been truly caring, and whenever I visit, I always felt welcomed. Karen, the receptionist, always greets you with a smile and follows up with another appointment in case you forget. They took care of me even during a blazing snow storm! I’ve been going to here for past year or so, and I am extremely glad I picked Masterpiece Dentistry. I highly recommend this place!

I have been a patient since I moved to Boston (I initially visited following the recommendation of a colleague – great advice!). The staff are all excellent, and seem to genuinely care about my health. Beyond general cleanings, they have identified and taken care of a few fillings, and assisted me with follow-up issues caused by a wisdom tooth removal (the oral surgeon at another office cracked one of my adjacent teeth, causing extensive issues – which Dr. Pappas and his team helped to address).

Alexandra Kyriakides (Source: Google)


Masterpiece Dentistry is by far the most highly functioning, organized and pleasant dental establishment I’ve been to. The staff has gone above and beyond for me, they’ve gone so far as to look into my insurance policies to ensure I have proper coverage for my services. I’ve had the best experience with my my dental hygienist and Dr. Pappas is the best. Couldn’t recommend enough

Sarka N. from Chestnut Hill, Chestnut Hill, MA (Source: Yelp)


I recently moved to Boston to New York. My husband found Masterpiece Dentistry at Copley and recommended it to me. I was able to get an appointment for cleaning and consultation very quickly. I left the office feeling great, and taken care of. Everyone from Karen at the front desk, to Cathy who did my cleaning to Dr. Pappas made me feel so comfortable. They were all very pleasant and thorough. Thank you for providing great services.

Berfun T. from Columbus, Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve never had a more pleasant experience at any kind of medical office in my life. Dr Papas and the staff make one of the most uncomfortable experiences a person can go through a super pleasant one. Cathy is the sweetest, nicest hygienist I’ve ever met. I legit wanted to be her friend after the first minute of interaction. I’ve never looked forward to going back to a dental office. Highly recommended!

Sean Preston (Source: Facebook)


As a long time patient of the friendly and professional staff at Masterpiece Dentistry, I cannot recommended them more highly. They can address most every dental challenge that you can imagine, and if not they are there with top knotch referrals to specialist that can. I appreciate their modern tools and techniques that they gather by attending the latest conferences and trade shows…they are always up on the latest in Dentistry. I recommend the office to all of my friends, colleagues and business clients working or residing in Boston.

Rachel P. from Lombard, IL (Source: Yelp)


I never thought I would actively look to give a shout out about a dentist office, but I loved my experience at Masterpiece Dentistry. I strongly recommend anyone who is looking for a great dentist. From the moment you walk in, you are treated with overwhelming kindness. Karen, the receptionist, is always so helpful and timely with my requests. Cathy is a WONDERFUL hygienist. I swear she has to take notes about our appointments because she seems to remember everything about past conversations. She is incredibly personable and engaged, not to mention great at her craft. Dr. Pappas is a hoot. He does his job, and he does it well. His sense of humor is quick witted, so be prepared for some good laughs. My only regret is I had to move to the Midwest, so I won’t be able to attend for regular appointments.

I have only had three dentists in my life and all had a connection to one another. I have been very faithful to routine cleanings and necessary work, including braces in my thirties. Now living in South Carolina I continue to receive my care at Masterpiece Dentistry because they are the best!

Robert M. from Quincy, MA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to this Dental practice for years now. Dr. Pappas, Cathy and Karen strike an excellent balance of professionalism and friendliness. I was always lead to believe as a kid that the dentist was a scary place and you are supposed to hate going there. I look forward to my 6 month cleaning check in and catch up with these guys. If you are looking for a dentist i highly recommend this practice. Once you go there once you will be a client for life!!

Margaret C. from Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA (Source: Yelp)


Excellence all around. From the moment I spoke to Karen on the phone and felt her warmth and genuine kindness, to meeting Dr Pappas who listened with compassion and deep respect to my story, sculpting a plan for my individualized needs, I have had such a phenomenal experience with this team. Cathy just gave me the best cleaning I have ever had, guiding me in the care of my teeth and Laurie brings empathy, humor and capability It is a welcome relief to find a dentist and staff that works with you in this kind of sincere and dedicated way. “Your heart and my heart / Are very very old friends” Hafiz, Persian Poet Thank you.

I’d chipped my tooth, on Friday, and because I did’t have a great experience with my last dentist, I had to google for a new dentistry. I came across Masterpiece Dentistry after searching and calling around for two days. Their reviews on google lead me to call. I called on a Monday and was booked an appointment for the very next day, Tuesday. The experience, started with Karen, she took my call with care and so much concern (like a mother’s love) that it made me be at ease making the appointment and giving my information. Next, was the actually visit, I met Karen in-person and her smile matched her character, she greeted me by my name before I could even clear the door. Then, I met Laurie, one of the hygienist, she was just as nice and welcoming. At this point, I was very comfortable and had felt I made the right choice in coming here. Laurie talked me through each step while gently cleaning my mouth. Lastly, Dr. Pappas, the icing on the cake, like his team he was just as friendly (if not more). My anxiety was decreasing by the seconds. (Did I mention I have had some bad experiences in the past with dentists.) The procedure ended up being quick and painless, my smile was restored! Laurie and Dr. Pappas work so well together. I was so pleased with the visit that I instantly knew I would be returning for regular routines. Thank you, Masterpiece Dentistry!

Kirby S. from CA, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Cathy and Dr. Pappas for a couple of years now and I absolutely adore them. Cathy is the best hygienist I have ever been to as she is thorough, detailed, and gentle. Not to mention, she is a joy to be around and is always very complimentary of my teeth and dental habits (who doesn’t love that?). Karen in the front is always wonderful and I love that the staff never turns over. Having the same faces each time makes it much easier and gives a small town feel in Boston. Additionally they offer flexible scheduling. Finally, not enough great things to say about Dr. Pappas. He’s skilled, gentle, and fast. I grew up going to the same dentist for 18 years. After college I struggled to find one that I would want to see, and enjoy seeing on a regular basis. Lucky for me, I found that here.

I have been traumatized by dentists in the past and have been searching for a dentist to call “the one” for a while. The instant I stepped into Masterpiece Dentistry my nerves were put at ease by the kind and welcolming staff. This is the best experience I have ever had at a dentist office and I highly recommend it.

As always the experience (cleaning this time) was pleasant and painfree. Every time I come here I feel like all the people in the practice care about me and my well being. They’re highly professional, good humored, and when they’re working on me, I know I’m in good hands. The office staff is also very helpful in working with my insurance providers and making sure I get my senior discount – even if I forget!

Alyssa D. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I went for the first time today to originally get a second opinion and I’m positive I found my new dental home! Everyone from Karen at the front desk to Laurie the dental assistant to John Pappas the dentist made my visit go so smoothly. They were totally honest and explained everything in words that people not in the dental world can understand 🙂 I’d highly recommend!

Miguel P. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Go Dr. Pappas and his team!! I have been going to Masterpiece Dentistry for about 10 years now and I was never disappointed! I love Dr. Pappas and his team’s honesty which I have not found in many other cases before. It is really easy to exaggerate and scare customers when it comes to dentistry but it never happened to me with Dr. Pappas! It is what it is and he tells you and explains everything to you!! They are super professional and friendly! As a fact, I live in Switzerland and travel the world for work (I’m a US resident so I travel to Boston very often) and I could go to many other dentists but my “official dentist” is Dr. Pappas! (I’m not sure yet after all these years if I’m also his favorite client but for sure, I’m the one who brings him the best chocolates! You can never go wrong with Swiss chocolates!!) 🙂

Dr Pappas and the friendly staff, go above and beyond to make my teeth and dental needs the best it can be. I am very impressed with their preventive screening when experienced professional were able to point out and catch new issues as they see it. The practise has large, beautiful and comfortable rooms, too.

Diana Rivenburgh (Source: Google)


Masterpiece Dentistry is one of the best dental practices I’ve used. Beyond being knowledgeable and thorough, they treat every patient well. You are greeted by name, they remember personal information about you, and explain procedures and options for your oral care needs. They were recommended to me by a colleague, and I highly recommend them to others.

Pamela A. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


This was probably the best dental experience I have ever had. Karen the receptionist was extremely prompt in answering my initial consultation email and was very quick to process all my information and set up an appointment. She was also very helpful in the transition from my old dentist over to Masterpiece. The real reason for my 5 star review is Cathy the hygienist. I have never met someone so passionate about their job, friendly, genuine, and skilled. At every step of the way she made me feel at ease and always explained what she was doing and that if I ever was uncomfortable, she would change her technique. After having gone through many painful cleanings I barely felt a thing and she was extremely thorough in making sure every tooth was cleaned to perfection. I can truly say I left the dentist office in a better mood than I had been all day and am so glad to have found one of the best practices in Boston!
