I followed my intuition after reading the reviews on Google and figured I’d give Dr. Aygen a chance. Good move. Not disappointed. Actually, he exceeded my expectations! Very surprised to feel better about my smile than I ever have. He and his staff were exceedingly kind. Thanks, Doc!

I cannot say enough about this office. Everyone was a pure joy to deal with, as I was treated with such care and respect. They truly care about your needs. This is my dentist forever.
- Barbara N.
By far the BEST dentist office I’ve ever been to. They take their time with you, there is no rush, especially with scaredy cats like me (and my husband). They actually care about doing the best for you and try to find all the possible ways to help you. Won’t go anywhere else. To go to them I drive 2.5 hours each way and it’s well worth it.
- Kate I.
WOW! What an incredible office! Sarasota Dental Arts is absolutely the best dental practice in SRQ! I have never met a team of people who are so welcoming, caring, and knowledgeable about each and every one of their patients who walk in through the door. They have truly set the standard for what a visit to the dentist should be like. I highly recommend them for anyone in and out of the area looking to find a dental practice to call home. Thank you Dr. Aygen and all your amazing staff for all that you do! My smile appreciates it!

I had an amazing experience at this office. The staff is professional and polite. My cleaning with Shelly was fantastic, and Shannon, who performed my exam, was a delight. Randy did some exquisite work making my retainers. The check out process was quick and easy, with Rachael answering any questions I had without delay. This place really knows how to treat their patients!
