He gets my recommendation for painless dentistry. He has my vote! I hardly felt anything. And during the rest of the appointment, I almost went to sleep.

-

He did a great job. With the injection, I didn’t feel a thing. It was pretty comfortable and it wasn’t at all frightening.

-

I am delighted that my dental condition has stabilized and my treatment has reversed some of my condition. I was having a lot of tooth discomfort and Dr. Argeros thought it was all related to my jaw issues. The discomfort is totally gone now. The orthotic mouth guard is not uncomfortable to wear at all, unlike previous guards were. The orthotic mouth guard was expensive – but worth it.

-

It has been a positive experience. The teeth cleanings are always good. I appreciate the reminder postcards. The temporary on my implant held up very nicely. I am very happy.

-

It went pretty well. Eating is totally different and I can enjoy food now! The whole surgery experience was pretty easy. I am so happy with my smile.

-

I don’t remember the surgery at all. It was great. When I came for the appointment to preview and evaluate the look of my final dentures, even the wax dentures felt fine. When the real ones came in they felt great! It was nothing like the old dentures which caused sore spots and didn’t fit well. They look great and my family loves them, and so do I. I wish I would have done it sooner. I recommend Dr. Argeros to anyone needing implants.

-

Nothing was bad at all. It was a very good experience. I was very comfortable the entire time with very little discomfort. The results are great. The bottom fits so much better than the old one. The entire staff was and is very professional. Painless dentistry! I would recommend Dr. Argeros to anyone who needs implants.

-

I am thrilled about this place! I reached a point where it was implants or it was soup everyday (and I hated the thought of that). My implants are perfect for me. I can eat whatever I want. Dr. Argeros does a great job and I couldn’t be happier.

-

I am always impressed with the technology here. One time I had a huge problem in which he referred me out because he did not think he could do it all himself. I like the low turn over in staff – which is a rarity. I, also, like the availability if I have an emergency. I know I am getting quality service because of his vast education and the improving technology. You get what you pay for.

-

Everyone is very helpful, polite, and explain everything very well. They’re expensive but worth it and they have very up to date equipment. I have bad luck with my mouth, but everything is treated well. I wouldn’t have kept my teeth for 20 years if I hadn’t taken care of it.

-

When I first came here I was a “white-knuckler.” They had to give me shots and topical for cleanings and I gripped the chair the whole time. Now, I come in voluntarily because the service is great and my schedule is accommodated. Dr. Argeros fixed a broken tooth that another Dentist was not able to. I really appreciate the technology and I feel calm when I leave!

-

I really trust the care. I have been coming here for a long time. I get laughing gas when I need it. Everybody here is great. It is advanced dentistry that serves the community with compassion. Contemporary Dentistry has definitely and thoroughly earned my trust. And the Dental Hygienist is a technical and personable superstar.

-

The crown was professionally handled with minimum pain. I was leaving for Mexico, so they used super-heavy duty cement and worked if off when I got back. It was an emergency visit in the beginning and I didn’t have an appointment. Dr. Argeros squeezed me in on his lunch hour. He has a great bedside manner. My partner has severe dental fear and waits until things are a disaster. We are coming here to get it taken care of because he can be sedated and is comfortable. Dr. Argeros is great.

-

I’m glad I had the medication! When I was nervous, I kept telling myself that this is what they are here for as medical professionals. They respected the fact that, for fearful patients, it is important to have a steady step-by-step process for optimum relaxation and success. The dental assistant put me at ease and answered all my questions.

-

The Dental Hygienist is kind and pleasant and thorough. She does great patient education. It is a very convenient location. Dr. Argeros and his Dental Assistant were really nice when I had my root canal done. They made a difficult situation easy to go through.

-

For me it was the only thing that worked. I don’t remember getting in the chair at all. What would normally have taken two appointments, we got done in one.

-

It really hasn’t been difficult. I don’t remember a thing. There was initial discomfort and at times, but mostly hasn’t been a difficult process.

-

It was great. Other than the cost, it was a flawless experience. I like Dr. Argeros because he is gentle but yet thorough. My implant is fine and chewing is no problem.

-

I know I get the most modern and advanced dentistry at Contemporary Dentistry. I have complete confidence. Dr. Argeros explained things clearly and gave me plenty of his time. I’d highly recommend him to anyone out there looking for a dentist. I’m very satisfied with the dental care I have received.

-

This is my story and how it begins with fillings, crowns, bridges, unable to eat certain foods and a limited smile. Finally, I realized it was time to decide between dentures or implants. After a great deal of thought, dentures were not the solution. I obtained all the information I could on implants and implant procedures. One day I received an advertisement in the mail from Dr. Argeros. I waited several days before making my appointment. The receptionist gave me a warm welcome. I found the reception room and dental rooms very neat and clean. Dr. Argeros was pleasant and explained in full detail about the procedure. I have my implants now. My smile is back and I am able to eat a variety of foods. Dr. Argeros and the staff were wonderful and patient throughout the procedure.

-

It is virtually painless (in fact, I often doze in the chair while they work on my teeth). I have a quick recovery time and have never had problems afterwards.

-

I was amazed at how easy it was. It ached a little that night after surgery but beyond that there was no pain – the very opposite of what I imagined. Cost is an issue for me, as it is with a lot of people. I am willing to forgo going somewhere else just to save a little more or have better insurance coverage. My comfort and the quality of the work is the most important. Considering my caliber of teeth, I know I am going to need more work. I will definitely do it here.

-

Because I have a full mouth of teeth now, I am not afraid to smile. I have received so many compliments on the brightness of my smile. I feel so much better about myself.

-

When I first saw my dentist with my five hopeless teeth, I was certain that there would be no option other than dentures. Next best would seem to be extensive bridgework. I was pleased and enthusiastic at the possibility of implants. The best help was Dr. Argeros’s careful explanation of the future work. At the time it was all hard to imagine. However, as the work progressed it was systematic and obvious. One of the most interesting parts of the adventure was to see the actual plaster molds of my jaw with all the new work in place.
Now the implants have been well used and admired for seven years. I am now 75 years old with 20+ years of Diabetes, so an ok was needed from my M.D. All went well during and after the procedure. I observe that Dr. Argeros has fine dental skills, also people skills. Beside these qualities, he has the artistic skills of Michelangelo and the craftsmanship of Paul Revere. I am proud and pleased to recommend Dr. Argeros’s work and the adventures in general to anyone.

-

Superb. I am extremely happy. Good service and a well educated, friendly staff. Dr. Argeros is a more than competent doctor. My care was absolutely perfect.

-

I am very happy with the dental care I have received from Dr. Argeros. He has provided excellent care to my entire family. We recommend him highly.

-

I was having jaw joint problems with headache. It (Dr. Argeros’s treatment) was a dramatic improvement. My jaw used to lock up and now I have no problems.

-

I have come to Dr. Argeros’s office somewhat by surprise. I’ll add that I could not be more satisfied with the care I am receiving. He’s taken care of all 4 children into their adulthood as well. Dr. Argeros, his staff, and his work are exceptional. He brings all of the training he’s received, the family attitude toward dentistry that’s been his legacy, and all of the ongoing current advances in the field. Newest technology, pain-free techniques, curiosity and love of people all come together here. Thank you!

Having moved to the Boston area from the Midwest 5 years ago, at the age of 77, I looked for dental care to continue and maintain the excellent dental care I had previously received during my entire adult years. Dr. Argeros was recommended to me as a Dentist who is highly qualified through his professional training and whose technical skills are superb. Dr. Argeros demonstrates a great deal of experience in the dental procedures he provides with no hesitation in explanation of the procedure he may be performing. In my visits to his office, I am led to believe that he is continually involved in perfecting his skills through advanced professional training. During a visit, the entire office staff makes an effort to make patients feel comfortable. I have been very pleased with the dental services I have received and I highly recommend Dr. Argeros and his staff to persons my age who may need dental care.

-

My treatment seemed simple to me even though I know it was complex. I was one of those patients that were fearful beyond belief but Dr. Argeros’s sedation techniques took care of all of that. I went back to work very quickly and without any pain. Things turned out the way I expected including with how Dr. Argeros worked with my personal time frame and without any disruption with my family. I would recommend Dr. Argeros’s implant care to anyone considering it. Going into it with a positive attitude really helps as well.

-

I’ve only had my implants for 2 weeks and I can eat all the foods I want again! I don’t even want to think about how bad things were before. I can smile again. My life has been changed.

-

I basically couldn’t smile and was embarrassed with the way my teeth were. Now with my implants and cosmetic teeth I’m smiling and getting my social confidence back. My dating life has improved too!

-

Based on previous experiences at other dental offices over the years, I found that even minor surgery was always very painful afterwards. My surgery was pretty serious that Dr. Argeros had to perform but I was AMAZED at how comfortable I was after my surgery. I was virtually pain-free, and I don’t remember a thing, unbelievable!

-

My headaches are gone. Thanks a million.

-

I can’t recommend having your care done with sedation dentistry highly enough. It is the only way to have treatment. Before, my dentist could never get me numb. It always hurt. None of that happened with Dr. Argeros. I can order what I want on the menu now instead of pasta for every meal and my teeth look great! I even got to eat what I wanted on vacation for the first time since I can remember.

-

For the first time in twenty years, I am comfortable enough to be in family photos. Before I always volunteered to take the photo since I was so embarrassed about my teeth. Now my teeth look so great everyone thinks they are real, Thanks Dr. Argeros!

-

When I had my false teeth, there were a lot of foods I couldn’t eat like corn on the cob. Now I can eat whatever I want like the implants are real teeth. I don’t remember a thing from my surgery, it went well with not too much discomfort. It was worth it. Thanks to Dr. Argeros, my teeth don’t fall out in the swimming pool anymore!

-

I had trouble with my teeth due to not taking the best care of them. Also, my gums were tender and bled often. Dr. Argeros and staff took the time from day one to explain to me what was needed, how long it would take, and what it would cost. We had a couple situations where the damage to my teeth was worse than anticipated and Dr. Argeros explained to me what we would need to do. I feel I have gotten my money’s worth and am saving money because after I have a procedure done it is back to prevention and gum care and keeping my oral health good. What I have appreciated most about Dr. Argeros is his patience and continual emphasis on education and prevention. He takes time to make sure I understand what he is doing, why he is doing it, and what follow-up care will entail. I was always comfortable during my procedure. Right now, I am more pleased with my smile and my overall dental health than I ever thought possible. What I love about the continuing care at Dr Argeros’s is how professional everyone is and how friendly. If I knew of someone to be helped I’d urge them to try Dr. Argeros — I’m glad I did!

-

I was always surprised at how quick the visits went by even though when I woke up I realized that I had been in the office for a couple of hours. My lower teeth are rock solid. I would never go back to a denture!

-

I used to be so afraid I couldn’t even walk into a dental office. Not anymore thanks to Dr. Argeros and his great team!

-

My natural teeth had been a source of embarrassment and pain for many years. The embarrassment was difficult enough to deal with but the pain was excruciating at times. I will never forget waking up in early 2002 and discovering that several of the crowns in the front were loose. My biggest fear was having my teeth fall out while talking. I carried a mirror in my purse so I could check my teeth several times a day to make sure they were all there. I couldn’t smile, as much as I wanted because I was afraid people would see my teeth – or lack of teeth. During this time, I consistently made excuses for avoiding social situations, especially those that involved eating. I became known as the person taking all the pictures instead of being in them. I couldn’t smile lest my teeth show and be recorded in family albums for all to see. At Dr. Argeros’s office, I had many questions and all were answered completely and to my satisfaction. The surgery was scheduled and after years of avoidance, I was actually looking forward to starting the process. I was given medication to take both before and after surgery so I felt ready to deal with the pain. Immediately after arriving home, I took the pain medication as prescribed and then proceeded to sleep for several hours. Upon waking there was no pain and I did not need any additional medication. I immediately ran to the mirror and was completely surprised. The healing teeth looked great and I was ready to face the world with a smile. My happiness this past year has increased hundred folds as years of stress have been lifted from my life. I also have started appearing in family photos after a thirty-year absence. That will be a mystery to future generations as they review family albums! My story would not be complete without giving complete credit and thanks to Dr. Argeros and his staff. From my initial phone call last year to this point, I have experienced quality care from all members of his team at each and every appointment. All procedures are performed in the office, which not only is comforting for fearful patients but also scheduling and travel hassles are eliminated. I am told in advance how long each appointment will take and in all cases, the time commitment has been met. This certainly makes it easy when scheduling around work and family obligations. The office is meticulously clean and free of loud noises. One gets the feeling of peacefulness, which reduced my stress. I will forever be grateful for finding Dr. Argeros and entrusting my dental needs to his care. His expertise, professionalism, and sense of humor have taken me from hopelessness to happiness over this past year. Cindy, Sue and Nancy are integral parts of his team as they helped guide me through procedures, appointments, and insurance claims. They empathized with me at the beginning when I was full of fear and now rejoice in my success as I near the end of treatment.

Due to many years of not having dental insurance and not doing the best at oral care, my teeth had become embarrassing to me. The front two overlapped, some were missing, and I was seemingly always having some sort of abscess or other oral issues. I decided to get proactive about my dental health and was looking for a dentist who could provide solutions to my problems. I came to Dr. Argeros for a consultation. He offered it for free and it was very thorough. Dr. Argeros made me feel comfortable, I could feel his compassion about his profession and I knew I could trust him to take care of me. The solution was to be fitted with implanted teeth. It started with the extraction of my poorest teeth (leaving me with 7 of my own natural teeth) and I was immediately fitted with a denture to use while my mouth healed. The drugs used for this first procedure were completely effective at numbing the pain senses and I was back at work in 4 days. At this stage it was very nice to have a mouth full of teeth that could actually grind and chew food and the fact that I could smile without embarrassment. The next steps were equally pain free; Dr. Argeros and his staff always provided me with the best of care and treatment. Now that my implant dental work is complete, I will continue to see Dr. Argeros and his team to provide my regular dental care.

-

It was very fine being sedated. I couldn’t remember most of my appointment, just spots. It was very comfortable.

I have been visiting the dentist chair for most of my life. When I was born, it was discovered that I had virtually little to no enamel coating on my teeth for protection against decay and breakage. I was one of twelve children from an upper middle class family. However, dental plans did not cover much, if any, major dental procedures. The seriousness of my condition was, unfortunately, not really recognized until the extent of damage was way out of control. In my early twenties, I was involved in a major auto accident which split my face wide open and literally knocked out most of my teeth. My course of dental treatment involved removing what remaining teeth were loose and re-implanting the teeth that I had fortunately kept after being knocked out. Then, I received root canals, bridges, cavity fillings, braces temporarily – and ultimately my entire mouth of teeth being capped with white gold and then baked enamel. The result was very satisfactory – initially. However, the maintenance and upkeep was very intense, let alone expensive. Over a period of less than ten years, despite my vigilant upkeep, the gum tissue recessed to the point of no repair and the bone deteriorated rapidly as well. I felt that there were no affordable or effective solutions with any type of duration of stability. I finally had to accept the inevitable and had to have all of my teeth removed (and get dentures). I initially decided to go to Dr. Argeros for an exam and appraisal of my dentures and to find out price, aesthetic appeal (natural looking), and options available. I was aware that the health of my mouth affected my over all health and well being. I feel that I was provided with the latest state of the art technology and information at a reasonable cost overall, everything considered. The utmost attention to every detail was attended to in a comfortable environment with a pleasant staff with a minimum of discomfort and pain. The efforts to provide complete customer satisfaction in every way possible are the reasons that I continue aftercare with this clinic. I would refer anyone to Dr. Argeros that is willing to seriously address their dental needs rather than just get by for the moment. Time, of course, will tell the true attributes of my treatment. I was never led to believe that anything was a sure remedy or solution. As a result of my experience, I walked away with a beautiful smile for the first time in over a decade. I am now able to eat most any type of food very comfortably. With the implants, my teeth don’t move around anymore. The natural, “not uniform,” appearance of my new teeth make them look as real as possible, rather than draw attention and “scream fake.” Thank you for convincing me to take the first step and follow through.
