A message from Dr. Oliveira:

“I am so pleased to have Dr.Pappas as a part of our practice family!

Our team is a group of people who genuinely care for each other and for our patients and this reflects in our patient referrals and our overall office success. Therefore, is it no surprise that Dr. Pappas is a perfect fit as a leader and healthcare provider within our dental family.

Dr.Pappas is my own personal dentist and has the same overall gentle touch and technique when it comes to dentistry. She is extremely thorough and friendly, which is a combination that is a necessity in the dental field. She always strives for her patients to fully understand their treatment needs. Also, Dr.Pappas is so calm and patient which is comforting to anyone with dental phobia. She is extremely considerate of all individual needs and requests. It is no wonder she is so well liked. Overall, she is soft-spoken and respectful and an absolute delight to be around.”
