Dr. Pagano has been fortunate to travel as far as Trinidad and Tobago to treat sick children requiring extensive dental care. On a local level, she participates in numerous school health and child identification programs (CHIP), Give Kids a Smile Day, and visits schools and day care centers to introduce dentistry in a fun way.

Dr. Pagano and her husband, Rich, were married in 2008 and welcomed a beautiful daughter, Chiara, at the end of 2011. They have a Shetland sheepdog named Nina and a crazy cat named Hamlet. In her free time, Dr. Pagano enjoys being home with her daughter and family, cooking, reading, traveling, and figure skating in the winter months.
