Virginia S, Silver Spring

Lets patients know what she is doing Always patient and kind

Vee Cee, Silver Spring

Finally, I found a dental clinic that feels like home ; thru a recommendation of a trusted friend. And she was right, David, the front desk personnel is so nice, friendly and accommodating. He explains everything you want to know to the best of his ability. Their dental hygienist, Ate Beth, is very caring and gentle and will take care of you while you're on that seat. And of course, our very own, Dra. Pagan, very sweet and caring, beautiful dentist and she will make sure she heard your voice in decision making to make your smile great! Thank you and will definitely recommend them to everyone I know.

Steve , Washington, DC

The best dental care I have ever experienced. Great attention, care, and service from Dr. Pagan. Also, the professionalism and friendliness of the whole team is outstanding. I wish I had switched sooner. I will be coming here for all my future dental needs and I highly recommend to anyone. Great location as well.

Lauren, Silver Spring

Dr. Pagan and her staff were extremely professional, efficient and kind. They made me feel comfortable and were very informative about the treatment plan. They implemented precautions due to covid-19 and I felt safe during the entire appointment.

K. Bonner, Silver Spring

I haven’t been to the dentist in quite some so I was a little nervous about my appointment. With Dr. Pagan and her amazing staff, I felt completely comfortable and my nervousness went away. They were friendly and thorough in examining my teeth. 10/10 recommend!

Marie T. , Silver Spring

I have been a patient of Dr. Arcilla since 1997, then been seeing Dr. Raquel Pagan (New Owner) same location for almost 23 years now. I am very pleased with her Professionalism, thorough examination of my mouth/gums/teeth (using high magnification loupe, digital x-ray), I saw how dental assistants and dental hygienist disinfect their rooms (made sure is thoroughly cleaned/disinfected). I can even see UV lights - in rooms, Hand sanitizers, Posters to fight against Covid-19 (6 feet apart, etc). Everyone in the dental office strickly wear mask, personal protective equipment, and checking temperatures of all individuals come to the dental office. I am confident to tell everyone that Dr Pagan’s office really cares about the well being of their patients. I am cavity free with healthy gums! Thanks to Dr. Raquel Pagan and all her staff!

Ruth P, Dunn Loring

Dr. Pagan is a great doctor who listens to the patient And takes care of him/ her with great attention.Everyone at the office is very kind, knowledgeable, and helpful! I visited in August and the whole office took every precaution to make sure their patients felt safe being in the office post-COVID.

Joelle, Silver Spring

Dr. Pagan and her team were really great. I suffer from anxiety and doctors are an intense trigger for me. But Dr. Pagan and her team were really patient with me, doing whatever they could to calm me down while trying to make sure they thoroughly completed their work, which wasn't easy with me at times. I apologized profusely but they seemed to understand, and I really appreciated it. Thank you Dr. Pagan and your team, because this could have just been another bad experience that would have affected me, but it wasn't. You've got a great team.

K.A., Temple Hills

She is very professional and takes her time getting the job done perfectly. Her dental staff, specially her assistant is very very kind and does her job right and makes sure you are comfortable. Definitely worth driving 40 minutes.

LK, SilverSpring

Dr. Pagan was very friendly and professional, and was open to answer any questions I had. This was my first dentist visit in 5 years so it was predictably on the extreme side, but she was understanding and passed no judgement. During the appointment she was very efficient with her time without being in a rush, and I felt very comfortable. Her assistant is also very friendly and great at her job.

Liza E. , Silver Spring

Excellent customer service ! I always feel comfortable during my visits. Dr. Pagan's hands are so light ! Barely felt any discomfort during fillings.

Madison M., Silver Spring

She and everyone in the office was absolutely lovely. She did a great job on my terrible teeth.

AL, Silver Spring

Highly recommended. Dentist & all the staff are very friendly & accommodating.

I.H., Silver Spring

Great experience.

Chase K., Silver Spring

Hi Dr. Pagan, Thank you for cleaning my teeth and skillfully filling my cavities with such care. I appreciate you explaining how to better care for my teeth when I'm at home (floss with the "C" shape!). I've always dreaded going to the dentist in the past, but you made my experiences (twice in the same week!) pleasant and comfortable. Beth and David are also highly professional, respectful and friendly. Thank you for your service!

Maryel M, Colmar Manor

Dr. Raquel Pagan and Staff are all accommodating, committed, and professional in their services. They helped me bring back my smile through the Maryland Bridge procedure :) These past months have been uncertain and tough to be in public places like the clinics due to close contact, yet I trust them with their preparedness in the clinic regarding the COVID-19. They make sure they are, and the clinic itself, is ready before, and after they serve the patients. They wear PPE at all times and prepare the desk area with screens, the wating area with enough chairs for social distancng, provide supplies of tissues, alcohol/sanitizers, and check each arriving patient's temperature for precautions. The cleaning procedure leaves no discomfort but clean healthy teeth and gums. They are gentle and thorough. We admire their work because they truly care for the health of me and my family's teeth. Thank you WeCare4U Team :) :) <3

Erwin T., Upper Marlboro

After leaving my appointment, I was very satisfied with Dr. Pagan's work, along with the rest of the staff. Throughout my lengthy appointment, they constantly made sure I was completely comfortable, which I really appreciated. After my appointment, they even made sure that my biting, teeth, etc., didn't feel uncomfortable at all. They truly care about making your experience with them easy and light. Thank you!

RK, Silver Spring

Tess is a great hygienist, really thorough! And Dr Pagan and staff are all amazing as well!

Chuck L, Silver Spring MD

As great as any dental services I’ve received in 72 years. Dr. Pagan takes time to discuss alternative approaches to complex dental problems, very patient and interactive. The staff is very competent and supportive in each of their roles. At no time did I ever feel their were services recommended that I didn’t need.

Ybony M, Upper Malboro

NR, Silver Spring

Excellent dental care provided by dedicated, highly qualified professionals.

Malou J, Silver Spring

One of those regular appointments that you would rather miss; the dental appintment. BUT not when you are seeing Dr. Raquel Pagan and her wonderful staff and my awesome hygienist Tess ! Yesterday was a regular cleaning that turned out to be more. The procedure was a breeze and barely a discomfort. Both service and professionalism, as well as a friendly comfortable place. Her clinic offers these with a smile.

Francine B, Silver Spring

Everyone in the practice seems to genuinely care for your well-being. They take the time to know you and understand any qualms you might have about going to the dentist.

LaCaille P, Chevy Chase

Great customer service !!!

Deborah Ann S., Silver Spring

Dr. Deressa M., Chevy Chase

Exceptional ! I feel I am in the hands of caring and skilled family member. Also very friendly and cordial staffs. Superb professionalism. That is why my family and I will continue to stick around

Jacob G, Silver Spring

The treatment I received at this dental practice was truly phenomenal. Scheduling is flexible, the staff are unfailingly polite and very informed in their specialty area. The location is literally a 5 minute walk from the nearest metro stop at downtown Silver Spring.

MJ, Silver Spring

I have been a patient of Dr. Arcilla for over two decades. The clinic is welcoming , and Staff are warm and efficient. They make you feel so at home, and the prospect of a root canal or root filling or cavity cleaning does not seem scary at all. With Dr. Arcilla's retirement, transitioning to Dr. Pagan came so smoothly. Dr. Pagan is confident and knowledgeable. Respect was instant. I will miss Dr. Arcilla definitely , and I am happy that Dr. Pagan has taken over the practice !

Ammar A., Silver Spring, MD

Everyone was professional and courteous and fun. My situation was explained to me clearly and the treatment went smoothly.

Ernesto R, Bowie, Md

Professional and very friendly environment.

John P, Washington, D.C.

Nice and friendly. I felt relaxed and comforted during my visit at the clinic

Melda M., Silver Spring

It is my first time to visit Dr. Pagan. She has gentle hands and is very informative for what I should do for my teeth. I am very satisfied on my first visit. I'm glad for col. Castro recommendation. I am gladly recommending Dr. Pagan.

Maria Jackson, Sikver Spring, MD

Dr. Pagan and her dental staff are efficient and very knowledgeable. They also make you feel at ease during a procedure. The removal of my old crown, the precision in which she go through the process of molding the new crown, made me feel confident that I am in good hands. I would recommend her and her staff to anyone looking for a family dentist. She will be my dentist for as long as I need one. My husband will too. Thank you Dr. Pagan and team. Keep N up the great work.

Nancy R. , Silver Spring

Dr. Pagan, in addition to being a very skilled dentist, is a kind, compassionate human being with a lovely sense of humor. I have an aversion to the dentist's chair, however, knowing it is she who will attend to my dental needs- believe it or not I can relax and let her use her skills and knowledge to repair what needs repairing. I highly recommend Dr. Pagan to all ages, all mouths-- I'd bet she is fantastic with children. N. R.

Kalen Nash, Washington DC

Friendly environment, felt comfortable even after not being at the dentist for a while, and the experience was smooth and easy.

Michael W.R, Silver Spring

Wesley, Silver spring

Deborah B., Silver Spring

i was very impressed with the letter of introduction and endorsement Dr. Arcillia wrote to her patients of Dr. Pagan upon her recent retirement. I As a patient of Dr Arcillia since 2013. I am very pleased with the outstanding service I receive from a warm, courteous, knowledgeable (always professional) staff. For me, the convenience and flexible appointments can't be beat -- only a 10 minute walk from my job. I highly recommend this office for expert dental care.

eden sembrana, rockville

very friendly health workers ,we feel very comfortable with all of them plus we felt at home just like as family

Ginky A. , Laurel

Me and my husband have been patients with Dr. Arcilla for 10 years now. We will definitely miss Dr. Arcilla and we we can’t be thankful enough that another dentist, Dr. Pagan, took over. She also makes us comfortable and she’s sincerely concern of our dental health.

Pete F, Washington

Great dental office, nice people, good service, my whole family goes here!

Jeffrey G., Bowie

Friendly staff. Honest and competent clinic. Cleaned and organized equipments.

Francesca Persick, Kensington

Great experience! Would recommend to anyone!

Ayi B, Rockville

Awesome dentist! Awesome service! I went to Dr. Pagan’s dental clinic about a month or so ago. I was immediately impressed by her and her staff ‘s professionalisms. Dr. Pagán is very knowledgeable and very skilled in her profession. She listened to my concerns and addressed them accordingly. She understands that my time is just as valuable as hers , and that I do not have time to keep coming back only to be seen for 15 minutes after a 25 minutes wait. The work she did on my teeth was very complex but she got it done in just two visits. Her patience and dedication to give her patients the care they want and need in timely manner is very commendable. She and her dental assistant, Elizabeth, showed great teamwork and skills. They gave me the smile I had always wanted. Thank you so much Dr. Pagán and staff, you are all awesome. I recommend this wonderful dental office to anyone looking for a caring, professional, and very skilled dentist.
