"Can't say enough good things about Dr. P, his staff & the incredible work they did. I am probably one of the worst dental patients a Dentist or his staff would want. I had some bad experiences with dentist's when I was young and as an adult neglected my dental needs. That was a bad idea but the thought of the pain kept me away. After seeing the transformation him and his staff did on my wife I reluctantly went to him to get some work done. WOW is all I can say. I can't thank them enough! Calming, gentle, felt almost no pain. The slight pain I did feel was so minimal I was ashamed & embarrassed that I had avoided it for so long. Dentistry has come so far since my youth. I would recommend Dr. P to anyone that has a fear of dentist. Him and his staff are very caring and treat each person as an individual. I could hear him talking to each patient as I waited for him to see me. No more fear here!
Thanks Dr. P & staff, you have changed my life."

"When I was a kid, I was never taught to go to the dentist, went to 2 dental check ups ever, and never really taught proper dental care. When I needed my wisdom teeth removed, I went to see Dr. Papagayo for a look-up and cleaning. I went from sheer terror to cannot wait to go for a check-up. Dr. Papagayo is one of the best, most professional people I have ever met. He is patient, calm, and always has a good vibe to him. I have recommended him to everyone I know, saying the office itself is relaxing and the staff personnel are beyond friendly. It's great to walk in and someone greet you by name-without looking at the appointment log. I will never go to another dentist office as long as I live in Springfield or even the surrounding area. When I have kids, I will trust him as much with their oral health as my own. He is fantastic and has hooked me as a life long patient. "




"Dr. Papagayo is the best dentist I have ever had in my life. I like many other people put off going to the dentist because I am scared of being hurt. Dr. Papagayo is a dentist of high integrity and always treats his patients with care and concern. I never feel like he rushes through any appointment or I am just a number. His staff is wonderful and I feel like I am friends with them. I can honestly tell you that even when he administers a shot for a cavity or I have a root canal that there is no pain. I have gotten many of my friends and my husband to switch to him. Everyone has the same to say about him..."he is the best"."




"I love going to Dr. Papagayo's office. The atmosphere is friendly and fun. Not to mention, the staff is really cool. Dr. Papa makes me feel very comfortbale when I am there. He's by far the best dentist I have ever had. I highly recommend him to everyone "

"Dr. Papagayo is a very informative Dentist. His chair side manner and personal care are the best I have ever experienced.  My children are very at ease with this man and his staff."

"I have several horror stories about past dental appointments. I went to my appointment dreading my visit. I was pleasantly surprised! Dr. Papagayo has a way of making his patients feel at ease and really cares for them. I will definitely return and have told several of my friends about him. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a new dentist."

Daryl Lindsay, Psy.D.



"I had been putting off my dental care over the past few years because I feared dentist. Whenever I went to the dentist I would have a panic attack so in order to stop the attacks I quit going. My wife went to Dr. Papagayo to get a crown. I had needed a crown for about a year and was living with the pain so I asked her how bad it was. When she told me that it was the best dental experience that she ever had I thought I would give him a chance. That was a year ago and since that time I have visited Dr. Papagayo multiple times without any anxiety. I was so impressed that I recommend Dr. Papagayo every chance I get. I am still amazed when I eat something that use to cause me so much pain when I tried to chew. Now I do not hesitate to get my problem taken care of as soon as something happens."
