I highly recommend Paragon Dental for all your dental needs. Dr. Patel, his wife, Hector, Melissa, office staff and all the RDA’s are exceptional! I started seeing them 2 years ago and was very hesitant because of all the work I needed done. I was very sensitive about my appearance of my teeth. Everyone at Paragon Dental has been compassionate and very empathetic towards my needs. Hector and Melissa have gone above and beyond for me to help me understand the process and to make me feel as comfortable as possible. Dr. Patel does phenomenal work that is of very high quality. I am very thankful for everyone at Paragon!

Best dental experience I have ever had. I was referred by a friend of the family. This happened after I had a bad experience at Western Dental. I was greeted by Hector who was at the front desk, answered all my questions, very pleasant experience talking with him. I was seen by Dr. Patel, he was very professional, explained everything in detail. Even reviewed my diagnosis from Western Dental, and informed me that I didn’t need a deep cleaning that they recommended. Despite not having insurance, my visit was very reasonably priced. Everyone who worked there was doing a great job, it was very apparent that this dental clinic is being run the best way possible, by people that care about their patients.

Looking for a great dentist??? PARAGON DENTAL is the best. I have been going to Paragon in Modesto for several years. Being from an era where dentists were considered more of a torture chamber than someone who took care of your teeth, I have always had tons of anxiety with dentists. I was one of those people who avoided the dentist for as long as I could. Because of Paragon and Dr. Patel, I have now learned to use my dental appointments as my time to relax and enjoy the peaceful times watching TV. I have actually started to fall asleep during some of my visits. Further, they are never behind in their appointments. I love this place. On Thursday 10/15, I had some major dental work and was, once again, scared. However, Dr. Patel completed the work within the hour, while easing my fear. Hector, his assistant, is the most caring and informative person a dentist/patient could have. He took the time to discuss any potential problems or concerns and made sure I was at ease before I left. I would highly recommend Dr. Patel at Paragon Dental. His work and demeanor were great, his office staff is so caring and pleasant, and Hector is the absolute best. I have often wondered why EVERYONE at his office is so nice. The answer? Dr. Patel is not only a great dentist, but he must also be a great person and employee. Dr. Nanden Patel, we love you as our dentist.

Ok, I have the biggest fears of dentists! About a week ago I came down with some pain in one tooth and then a few days later it traveled to the other tooth on the other side. I have had traumatic experiences since my very first dentist appointment. So it took every ounce of courage to call the dentist this time. I looked for a good week for a dentist near me that had to have stellar reviews. I came across Paragon dental and I decided to call and Erica picked up. What a gem… from the moment she started speaking my heart began to beat at a normal pace and she was able to get me an appointment that afternoon. She reassured me that everything would be ok. As I arrived she came out to greet me and they were super efficient, thorough and sooo sweet. Bottom line is I need A LOT OF WORK. But I have never been able to find a dentist that was kind, gentle and genuinely concerned for my overall health and well being. Hector is outstanding. You can tell his passion and sincere care for the patients. We went through all my work that I needed done and costs. He laid out the plan according to my need and was willing to work with my finances. Especially because I have no insurance. Not once did I feel pressured. Fast foward to my root canal a few days later. They brought me in to the room immediately, and was greeted by the doctor who gave me a series of shots. I called him a magician because I did not feel an ounce of discomfort. Then the rest was a breeze. I really appreciated his concern for my discomfort. He asked me a few times if I was ok and in any pain. I didn’t feel a thing!!! He even said my teeth were pretty straight… its the little things. Especially for a girl coming from past experiences where the dentists never really cared. The whole thing was a breeze and painless. And FAST!!! I can’t thank them enough for lifting such a huge load that has been weighing on me for years. This office and all who work there are a complete joy.

I have been coming here for the last Ten years and I won’t choose anyone else! I had such anxiety on getting my dental work done but here at Paragon, Nadan and staff, they make me feel like family. I don’t have the anxiety to get my work done that I need or even sedation because I know they will never hurt me. Thank you staff for being who you are, y’all are truly amazing

Alondra L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have always been afraid of the dentist and have needed two implants for a while. The staff here is absolutely amazing. I’ve been coming here for years now and they treat you like family. Always extremely attentive and will go out of there way to make you feel comfortable. After years I decided to get my implants. I needed a bone graft and to me that was scary, but the process went really smooth. It wasn’t painful recovery was quick and now my teeth look like they have always been there. Thank you Dr. Patel and the team for all your work.

Let me start by saying I am not a guy who takes the time to do reviews. With that being said I felt welcome from the first phone call to shaking the Doctor and Hector’s hand walking out of the building. The ladies up front are kind and energetic. The lady who took me back to do X-rays and also assist the doctor with my cleaning was fast and efficient!! Time is money and I appreciate the staff being both thorough and quick without cutting corners. The doctor was very informative and detailed pertaining to my lifestyle and eating habits. The doctor had a great sense of humor and actually took the time to listen and answer my questions. Lastly what I believe to be the glue of the office is Hector! This guy has among if not the best customer service I have seen. He greets you with a smile , talks to you like he has known you for a while and ends it with a handshake. Best Dental experience I have ever experienced! I already recommended my Wife as well as a few co workers!

I called all over Modesto for dentists, these people were the nicest and most helpful on the phone. Came in for my first visit , and they were just as nice. They do not try and take advantage of your pocket book , they really do care about you. They take such good care of you!!! I will recommend them to my whole family.

Pamela G. from Modesto, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a difference a GREAT Dentist and Staff make!!! This team is top notch. Friendly, respectful, helpful, and gentle.  I wasn’t blessed with the best of teeth. As a matter of fact, I would dare to call me a “problem child” in terms of dental health.  Dr. Patel cares to take the time to explain my options and is prompt in addressing any questions or concerns I may have about treatment.  Once you are a patient of Paragon Dental, you will never hesitate or fear going to the dentist!

John S. from Modesto, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was in need of some crown work and really wanted to Improve the look of my teeth. Some friends had referred me to Paragon dental in Modesto. I’m not  a huge fan of going to the dentist but I must admit these folks were the best ever. Not only did they greet you professionally they were so friendly. I have been there twice now and my smile has improved 100%. I am going back now and having some other work done because of the great job they did. I highly recommend going there.

Im not sure there are enough adjectives to describe this practice. They do an amazing job. From the girls at the front desk, Hector, the hygienist to Dr Patel ( and the others I have forgotten) they are professional and absolutely at the top of their field. But more importantly they are all amazing people. As someone who has been afraid of the dentist my entire life, and I actually look forward to seeing everyone there. They do such a great job of putting you at ease and are very gentle. Dr Patel has managed to earn my trust and my loyalty. Trust me you you never be sorry you chose Paragon Dental.

J. M. from California (Source: Yelp)


I have been meaning to leave a review for a bit. But kept forgetting. Here it goes. If I could give Paragon Dental 100 stars I would. My whole life I have had fear of the dentist. My dental anxiety was HIGH!!! And due to that my teeth were atrocious. Lol (to me) I needed a lot of work. From the get go everyone was so accommodating and reassuring. I can’t tell you enough how amazing they made me feel and set all my nerves at ease. They reassured me that all would be ok and that they were going to give me the smile I had always dreamt of. In doing so they worked out a payment plan and planned my visits accordingly. Within about 2 months, (give or take) I had most of my major work finished and my brand new Caps in. I always shied away from smiling because I was so embarrassed. Now I can smile with confidence. I still think twice about smiling sometimes because I was so used to hiding it. Everything was painless and a breeze. Dr. Patel is so sweet and genuine. His empathy and sincerity he has for his patients speaks mountains. The assistants and hygienists are also very awesome at what they do. They know you by name and make you feel at home. Constant reassurance on their part and educate you on the health of your teeth. I actually look forward to my visits now. Never have I ever been able to say that. Honestly, if I ever move I will fly in for my appt. I have found my forever dentist and I could never express enough gratitude. Not having the confidence to smile and having constant worry and pain about your teeth is paralyzing. You don’t realize how much it controls your life until you have your teeth fixed. A huge load has been lifted and I have to thank Paragon dental, especially Dr. Patel for that. I have referred my whole family here and still talk about them to everyone. I tried to find a before photo… but honestly I can’t find any. I never smiled with my teeth showing. But I have posted what my smile looks like now.

So I first started going here a few years ago and I only did because I didn’t have insurance so I found some places that would do payment plans. Paragon dental came up and they had good reviews so I decided to give it a shot. Like many people I hate going to the dentist. Who wants to go and get shots and have their mouth drilled on? Not me. From the moment I walked in the door they were nothing but helpful, nice, welcoming. Any good words you can use to describe them apply. I always tell them I love seeing you guys but I hate coming here (for obvious reasons) I moved many miles away and I won’t go anywhere else. I always find myself coming back here. Great place to come to you guys! Highly recommend.

What a pleasure it is to have an appointment at Paragon Dental! Dr. Patel and his staff are professional, friendly and fun … What could be better if you have to go to the dentist? I highly recommend being one of their patients. You’ll be treated with the utmost kindness and still enjoy your dental appointment.

Sandy C. from Modesto, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love everything about going to see Dr. Patel and his staff and I used to hate going to the dentist before I started going here. They are GREAT with my son (5 yrs.old) involving him in every process, letting him look at his X-rays, hold the water sucker, and they have a tv and let him pick what cartoons he wants to watch. If you have anxiety about going to the dentist or you’re looking for a dentist to take your child to, this is the place!

On a previous review of mine I raved about the quality of service. Somehow I mistakenly hit only 1 star. So sorry. I just had a new crown seated. Amazing! From the first fitting I could not tell that it was different from my original tooth. Awesome staff; none of the very typical get there for your scheduled appt and wait. I was seated right on time. I highly recommend Paragon dental for folks looking for a quality dental office.

Steph A. from SoMa, San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


They are the best, hands down no matter what. I was always nervous about the dentist but am finally not nervous at all anymore. They are so kind and never in a rush. I make them laugh and they make me laugh too. I could never thank them enough for everything. If you’re looking for somewhere more pleasant and comforting and more patient-focused, look no more and just call them. You won’t be sorry!! 🙂

I initially wanted to be seen at Paragon dental for teethe whitening services only but was blown away by their hospitality and professionalism. The staff at Paragon Dental welcomed me into their office as if I were a part of their family. They were very kind and attentive. Dr. Patel answered all my questions and more. I have a HMO dental plan which means my services are covered through insurance but I’ve chosen to pay out of pocket and hope to become a long time patient. I will also be bringing my family here as well. I’ve had the best treatment here by far and the prices are fairly reasonable. I received services for zoom whitening and am pleased to say I haven’t stopped smiling. Thank you Dr. Patel and staff for instilling happiness back into my life!

I don’t often give a review for goods or services but I had major work done at paragon and I couldn’t be happier or look better than I do now. If you ever thought of doing something for yourself because you deserve it. This is it! Worth every penny. No one that every took my money was ever so nice and friendly than the folks at Paragon, it was a pleasure seeing them every month. The bill is now payed and I’m thinking of yanking out some teeth just to have a reason to see them all again (just kidding Dr. Petal). My name is Jimmy Monroe if you ever meet me just ask about Paragon and I’ll tell you face to face what great work and wonderful people you will find there. The Definition of Paragon is: model of perfection. Thanks again everyone. Jimmy Monroe Oct19,2015

I am from out of town and was looking for a dentist. We happened to have Paragon Dental at a walking distance from where we were staying and it worked out great. Erica went through incredible lengths to help us figure out if our plan covered our visit (we spent a whole day on back and forward calls until we figured it out). The experience at the clinic was equally as great. The entire staff was very cheerful and helpful. I felt pretty safe as well given their safety measures for COVID. They clearly have a well though out plan from the moment you come into the office. Overall would return and definitely recommend!

Linda H. from Ripon, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have gone to this dentist and everyone is so kind.I even got my husband to come over here instead of his regular dentist.And he even said they were all nice and explaining what they were doing and Hector told us how much we are going to be paying for the work that was done.All the dentists there and the people in the office is so friendly offering us anything to drink which I never had anyone do that before.Give them a try you wont be disappointed  Linda H

Personally I can say that Dr. Patel and all his staff are AWESOME!!!!!!!! I started going to Paragon Dental about 4 years ago, I had been going to the same dentist for over 15 years and was worried about the change, I’m so glad I did it. The care and treatments I’ve received has literally changed my life. Not only has Paragon Dental changed my life but also my husband’s life. I’m treated like family EVERY time I go in. I dont live very far so I even pop in and say Hi often and when I do everyone is always happy to see me. The care is the best you can get and very reasonable prices. If you decide to check them out, I promise you will not regret it!! I LOVE PARAGON DENTAL!!!! I’m sure you will too!!!

I have been a patient at Paragon Dental with Dr. Patel for along time (probably 10 years, or more) and I have never been less than completely satisfied, and happy with the care, and with all the professionalism of his wonderful staff. I am super pleased with Dr. Patel’s work. Dr. Patel did all my crowns on my front teeth uppers, and lowers and they look beautiful!! 🙂 I highly recommend Paragon Dental, because Dr. Patel is the BEST!!! You can trust their work, and professionalism. Hector, and all the staff are awesome people to be around they work with you, and they will not only explain your treatment, or benefits they will answer all your questions. Dr. Patel staff is outstanding!! Just a wonderful experience , and that is why my entire family trust Dr. Patel. Thank you Dr. Patel for all your help, and wonderful care. Rosa Hernandez

I had been going to Paragon Dental for quite a while before moving an hour away.  Life got in the way and so I just never got around to finding a new dentist.  Here comes 2020 and now I NEED a dentist (pain, cleanings).  I met with 2 different dental offices and let’s just say, there are many reasons why I did not choose to go with them.  I went back to Paragon Dental, (now 1.5 hours away from my new house) and I am very glad I did.  Yes, I pay a bit more, which is my job to know to become familiar with my dental plan, but I love this office.  Hector is great as are the ladies who work there.  I love Dr. Patel and his wife, Dr. Patel.  I am a dental coward and they sedate me for my procedures, do as much as possible in as few visits as possible, and with this last visit, sent me home with soup and bottles of water to ensure I took care of myself afterward.  I really love this group and will go nowhere else for my dental work.

Silva G. from Modesto, CA (Source: Yelp)


The best of the bestest dental office! My very first time ever experience was amazing! I can’t or don’t know where to start , from the staff to the doctor everyone was amazingly friendly & knowledgeable about everything they said or did. I felt like they were my family literally! I felt at home not a dentist office. From welcoming me, taking the time to go over my treatment plans, to trying every possible way to give me the right information and what I would need to get exactly done. Everything was perfect. I appreciate the staff and doctors effort in trying to helping me and not just get my money. Cheesy but true lol. I am looking at my new Dental’s office 🙂

Abram F. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely the best service and best over all dentist I have ever been to. My intire family goes here and now my fiancé does as well, they also do very well to work with you on insurance and paying for anything outside of normal routine cleaning. They have helped me through wisdom teeth, root canal, cavities as well as cleaning and other various things. Excellent staff and everyone is very friendly and knowledgeable.

Shreyas M. from Oakdale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Nandan Patel is Excellent doctor.He’s fabulous and friendly, always uses cutting edge of technology.I went for a cleaning and an exam. I was amazed by the quality of the service there. He took the time to read my results and explained in detail what was going on and what we were about to do. I felt very comfortable and loved the whole experience.His office and his whole team is amazing.Great dentist, I recommend him to friends family and anybody looking for a competent and caring professional.

Silva Garcia (Source: Google)


The best dental office I’ve ever been too! They are like family to me. I get treated like one & I can’t thank them enough. They always take care of me. From staff, Doctors, and the consultant Hector. They are not only amazing with customers but do their job so well and with love. They are very organized, clean, always have a smile on their face as they greet you, & you will feel like at home. Give them a call, you’ll thank me later. Thank you Paragon Dental for being the greatest of them all.

Mine and my husband’s first visit was a great experience. As soon as you enter the facility not only is it clean and welcoming but You also feel the positive energy throughout the office. Melissa was very helpful and friendly. The dental exRay session was comfortable and quick. Once it was time see Dr. He was in and out and very communicative. We Highly recommend this dental office. We will be returning clients all the way from Newman. Thank you to the Paragon Team.

Kevin S. from Modesto, CA (Source: Yelp)


By far the best! Dr. Patel and his team go above and beyond to take care of mine and my families needs. I was previously reluctant to go to the dentist due to past experiences of very poor treatment from other dentists and that has all changed since moving to Dr. Patel and the Paragon team. I use pay flex for many things and Hector takes on the task of seeing the payment through to the end. If you have ever used pay flex, you know what I am talking about. They treat my family like their family and recommend the Paragon Dental team to anyone looking for great dental care.

Linda C. from Modesto, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is not a forced review. I am doing this to help others who, like me, was in search of a Dentist in my hometown. After nearly 18 years of coming here, I still love Paragon Dental. All the office staff and Dr. PATEL, make you feel welcomed and like a friend. They are very professional and caring when dealing with patients. They are considerate when delivering your results. They offer payment plans for those who need a little extra time to pay. The office is verrrrry clean and easy to get to. Plenty of free parking in open parking lot. Never a bad experience. Always a great visit even for treatment. No regrets!!!

Sincere R. from Modesto, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would like to say I had the best experience with any dentists in the area at Paragon Dental. I walked in and spoke with Hector , he was amazingly nice but thats not the entire purpose of the review , he is also very knowledgeable. A lot of the stuff he said I looked up on my own and verified all he had told me. I also got a second opinion and found out they are pretty competitive with their pricing so thats good. Another thing I absolutely love is that even though I had more work than expected , They organized into what needs to be done ASAP and what could wait until I can afford it , they didnt try to play the “all your work needs to be done now or it will be detrimental” scheme. Last but not least I am known to be sensitive and Dr. Petal was so understanding and gentle anytime I said I had pain he would give me more numbing solution and give me a few minutes to breath and not once did I feel that he was annoyed or trying to rush me. Great place I would recommend this as your primary or even as a second opinion just check them out I am sure you will be happy with your experience. * time in and out: A+, Barely sat down before getting called back! * Staff pleasent: A++++ , Thank you girls for being awesome! * work quality: A++, After leaving no pain, no gum swelling,nice work THANK YOU PARAGON =)

My daughter and I have been coming here for years. The front desk staff to the dentist himself, are AMAZING. My daughter was about two or three years old when she first had an apt at paragon, she’s 10 now. Even though they’re not specifically for kids , they go above and beyond to make kids comfortable and ensure they have a good time at the dentist. They have always been kind and friendly. As an adult I’ve always appreciated their honesty on what needs to be done dental work wise ASAP & what I may have to put off due to insurance or money issues. As well as the work is Good, believe it or not I’ve gone to a dentist who did horrible work and needed to be redone shortly after getting the work done. My entire family, there is 6 of us total, have been going to paragon dental for years, around 8-9 to be exact. Never have any of us had a bad experience or anything short of a good appointment! I definitely recommend for everyone, including kids and family!

Richard F. from Modesto, CA (Source: Yelp)


Like most everyone, I hate going to a dentist but I had some major dental work needed. On a recommendation I went to Paragon Dental. Friendly staff, reasonable prices, experienced no pain, (even with a root canal) and they were quick to get me in. They explained the procedures in detail and I’m happy with the work so far. Not something I enjoy doing, but if I must, this place makes the best of an unfortunate dental situation.
