Meet Dr. Vargo

Being the father of my two beautiful children is my greatest accomplishment and pride thus far — I love to spend every free moment with them. They have taught me so much, including humility, patience, and how to listen. Communicating effectively and understanding the needs of children in my practice is a direct translation of my experience as a dad. While continuing education is a requirement of my profession, I believe my best work training is found in being a dad.

A personal experience led me to pursue a career in orthodontics. At the age of seven, I sustained serious damage to my teeth in a school bus accident. Six years of extensive orthodontic treatment followed. Not only was the problem corrected, but it created the desire for my professional life. Dedication and skill helps me to educate others about the benefits of orthodontics.

Community outreach is a part of my practice. Since coming to Rome in 1996, I have been active in the community. I have been blessed to be a major sponsor for the Ridge Ferry Playground project and have been able to give back to the schools in our area through Partners in Education, a program that helps to provide a well rounded education.

Field trips to our office are a highlight of my practice. I enjoy the opportunity to help educate children on the importance of proper dental care. Giving of time is very important to me. I am currently serving as board member of the Sexual Assault Center. Winning the People’s Choice award for the Rome Celebrity Dance Challenge was a rewarding experience. I enjoyed both the challenge of learning my dance number, but I most enjoyed the fundraising and giving back to a great cause.

My family and I continue to stay involved in our community. We enjoy an active church life as well as participating in various community organizations.  When time permits, I like to bike, ski, play tennis, and spend time with Sophia and Denton.
