Dentistry has come a long way over the years so if you are having any dental concerns, dental insurance questions, or just want to know how we can accommodate your busy schedule with a cleaning, just give us a call!
I chose Dr. Aygen and his team over a year ago. It was the best decision I have made in choosing a dental health care provider. He and his staff are welcoming, professional and always thinking of the patients comfort and health. Best of the best!

Dr. Aygen and his staff are the best at what they do - no matter how complicated your case, I highly recommend them; especially if you've had bad experiences with other dentists in your past. These folks will absolutely erase all of that and reset your perspective.
If you're delaying dental care for whatever reason, as I did, please see Dr. Aygen. I had no idea how much better I'd feel, and I only wish I'd gone sooner.

Maggie took wonderful care of me today for my 6 month cleaning. She had carefully read the notes from my prior visit and understood my preferences (and stresses from childhood dentist!) without any lengthy comments from me. I left the office with clean, white teeth and no pain. Although most people would not say that a dentist visit is enjoyable, Maggie made mine very pleasant!
- Mary K.
This is an excellent dentist office with professional compassionate care and great service. My teeth are very happy we found them!
- Johnny D.
Best first visit I’ve ever had at a dentist’s office. The entire staff go out of their way to make sure you’re comfortable.
- Nancy W.
Meticulously done. Sarasota Dental Arts has the most modern and up-to-date dental office I have seen. Exceptional attention to detail in treatment.
