Meet Dr. Paul Arfanis
“My patients mean the world to me. Their continued overall health is important. I became a dentist because I wanted to help people get better and stay healthy.” – Dr. Arfanis
Dr. Paul Arfanis believes in a “whole health” approach to dental care. Why is that important? If you find a problem in the mouth, you may find an early indicator of much greater health problems down the road. Dr. Arfanis has helped patients avoid critical health issues by performing thorough examinations, explaining the findings, and referring them to their physicians for further testing.
Dr. Arfanis grew up on Long Island, New York. He pursued his undergraduate education at Muhlenberg College in Pennsylvania and received his dental degree from Georgetown University School of Dentistry in Washington, D.C. He completed a residency for dental implants at the Misch Institute & New York University School of Dentistry in Manhattan. He completed advanced fellowship training with the International Congress on Oral Implantology while he practiced in Westfield, New Jersey.
Dr. Arfanis applies his expertise in the latest techniques and dental technologies towards helping even more of his patients with a widest array of services possible.

Dr. Arfanis and his wife of 22 years have a son, Derrick, a student at Roosevelt School in Westfield. Active in the community, he has sponsored his son’s baseball team. Dr. Arfanis is a member of the Optimist Club of Westfield because he believes in the power of positive thinking and helping the youth of today find their way in life. He is proud to have inspired some of his young patients to pursue their own careers in dentistry. Dr. Arfanis also participates in local Habitat for Humanity projects. Outside the office, he enjoys astronomy, physics, and taking his family to the American Museum of Natural History.
