Meet Dr. Milton Pagonis

Dr. Milton Pagonis

Dr. Milton Pagonis treated his patients at Cupertino Dental Group for over forty years and loved providing quality dentistry in a calm environment. He grew up less than a mile from the office. A graduate of Fremont High School he went on to the University of California at Berkeley for his undergraduate training. At the University of Pacific School of Dentistry, Dr. Milt was selected to work in the newly instituted, government funded, Expanded Duties Clinic. He graduated with honors in 1972 and joined Ken Frangadakis’ practice in the nearby Town Center.  They were soon joined by Dr. Milt’s brother, Dr. Gary, and the three of them founded Cupertino Dental Group.

Prior to his 2014 retirement, Dr. Milt had the great pleasure of working alongside his daughter, Angie for almost three years. Even though he retired earlier than expected, he did so with the confidence that his patients would continue to get high quality, patient-centered care from his daughter.

In 2023, the Cupertino Dental Group family was deeply saddened to say their final goodbyes to Dr. Milt.  He is survived by his loving wife (Joanne), three children (Nick, Katrina, and Angie), and seven grandchildren.
