“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 and his staff are simply excellent! They really care about their patients and it shows. The office itself is in a beautiful part of Westfield. From my exam chair, I had a lovely view across Saint Paul St and up to Saint Marks Ave. The hygienist was very kind and gave me some useful pointers. She was so careful, too. Dr. Arfanis really takes his time with me, asks me a lot of questions. I know I’m in good hands here and I would recommend them to anyone.”
