Family & Cosmetic Dentistry In Buffalo Grove, IL

David Papworth, DDS and Al Vargas, DDS have one goal for their dental practice: to provide comfortable, professional oral health services to their patients. With over 30 years of dental experience, Drs. Papworth, Vargas, and Associates are proud to offer dental services to the families of Buffalo Grove, Wheeling and Arlington Heights.

General Dentistry for the Whole Family

Drs. Papworth and Vargas are experienced family dentists who both offer general dental services, and each dentist has additional training in other dental fields: functional jaw orthopedics for Dr. Papworth, and endodontic and cosmetic procedures for Dr. Vargas. Additionally, both of our Buffalo Grove dentists have taken advanced education courses in dental implant restoration, allowing them to successfully provide the prostheses that dental implant posts support.

Our Commitment to Successful Dental Implantology

Dental implants have allowed their patients to replace missing teeth with the most natural-feeling results, and so our Buffalo Grove dentists want to ensure that they are able to provide these implants and restorations in a high-quality manner.

This commitment to proper dental implantology is evident in the fact that Drs. Papworth, Vargas, and Associates have spent the last five years taking continuing education courses on dental implants and providing these services. Providing dental implant placement and restoration requires a careful eye for the unique details of a client’s bite, an awareness of the health of the jaw bone, and a thorough understanding of the patient’s teeth replacement needs. Our Buffalo Grove dentists have been dedicated to providing excellent dental implant care, developing these skills, our dental team is able to ensure our comprehensive services meet your dental restoration needs.

As dental professionals it is our priority to provide quality dental care you can trust.


I was thinking today about how I MUST give a review, when I was having some major dental care done; which went very very well (root canal process), as usual though, because every time I am here, I think how professional they are and how well they treat me as a patient, as well as how very close to painless the processes are on my teeth. I have been a patient for about 20+ years and have gone thru so many changes in my mouth; braces, not having the best dental genes; I also got really busy over the past 5 years and missed some basic care for a while. The office treated me as if I was just there, even though many yrs had passed and I felt again the same top notch service as before. Never let down. Thanks

I have been going to this dentist practice since the late 80's; I can't imagine going to any other practice.

Dr. Papworth and Dr. Vargas will spend time explaining treatments and options and do not rush the appointment. They have a great bedside manner; very gentle, and very cautious as to not cause any pain. They have state of the art equipment that covers everything from x-rays to root canals. I don't have the best teeth in the world and have had plenty of procedures done. All were required and never was any unwanted or unnecessary service done. The quality of the work is EXCELLENT!!! They have a variety of time slots for appointment options (which is important when you are trying to juggle work and life schedules). They never keep me long in the waiting room. I've never had any problem with insurance either.

The entire staff truly cares about you.

I moved several years ago and make an hour's drive each way to be their patient. Quite honestly, I would drive even longer to keep them as my Dentist.

Highly professional and friendly environment. They did more than clean my teeth; I learned more during my first cleaning alone than I have from most of my other dentists. After learning why/how flossing works, I was far more motivated.
