"Great experience, they went out of their way to make it very comfortable for me. I, like many people have a general anxiety about dentists but shortly into my first visit all my anxiety was gone. Explained everything very well and was continuous of my limited budget. Would definitely recommend."- V.K. / Google / Jul 31, 2017
"DentalWorks is great; Lisa is an excellent hygienist!"- B.M. / Google / Jul 24, 2017
"It was my first visit: I was extremely pleased with the dentist, hygienist and the other staff. Very friendly and a positive experience, unlike the snotty Houston dentist office I had used previously. I used the $99 new patient coupon and ended up paying $214 total (I don't have insurance) for the appointment, since I got the added-on cleaning and flouride. It became apparent from the condition of my gums that the 5 min Houston cleanings had been half-baked. I'm grateful that the problems were found before the damage was irreversible."- A.M. / Yelp / Jul 20, 2017
