About Dr. Pappas

Dr. John Pappas

Dr. John Pappas really loves what he does and spends a great deal of his free time focused on the art and science of great dentistry.

Dr. Pappas is a Faculty Club member of the Spear Institute, a world renowned authority for cosmetic and restorative dentists.  He is also a Study Club leader, mentoring general dentists and specialists in their quest for excellence in the treatment of their own patients.

Dr. Pappas has also studied at the University of Southern California, attending a year long continuum in the placement and restoration of dental implants. During his training he was presented with an award from the USC School of Dentistry “in recognition of outstanding commitment to life-long learning”.

Dr. Pappas was recently named a “Top Dentist” by Phoenix Magazine in both the General Dentist and Cosmetic Dentist categories, distinctions that only a handful of the thousands of Valley dentists receive and the only dentist in Arizona to receive both!

While away from the office, Dr. Pappas enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, Jonah (8) and Zoe (3), and training for Ironman Arizona (his 6th Ironman!) in November 2014.

About Our Office

Dr. Pappas and his caring team of professionals pride themselves on the superior level of care and service they provide to each and every patient.  From the moment you are greeted until the moment you leave, you will find an environment of warmth and caring paired with artistry and attention to detail.  You will be treated like family!

Dr. Pappas and his team are perfectionists.  At Arcadia Dental Arts, we are proud to offer the most advanced treatment modalities available.  Of course, an array of treatments are utilized every day from the very simple to the most complex.  You can rest assured that you are receiving care that is thorough and state-of-the-art, yet comfortable and conservative.

Our state of the art facility includes Dexis digital x-rays which greatly decrease radiation and eliminate chemical waste. Our Nomad portable X-ray unit also dramatically reduces radiation to both our patients and our team members.  Digital photography of the teeth and facial profile is utilized to aid in patient education and communication, and in the planning of cosmetic treatment.  Lasers are used daily to aid in reducing bacterial levels around teeth and gums, and for detecting cavities in their earliest stages, preventing the need for extensive treatment.  Last but certainly not least, our CEREC (same day crown) technology allows to fabricate beautiful, long-lasting porcelain restorations in as little as a few hours with no impressions or temporaries!

Our sterilization techniques are second to none.  The latest hospital grade instrument sterilization and monitoring, paired with adherence to a strict infection control protocol allow you to rest easy knowing that your safety and comfort are at the very top of our list.
