Daniel Allen, DDS Ideal Dentistry, PLLC
I am afraid of dentists and it had been 7 years since I had last seen one. I was scared and embarrassed and brought a friend to literally hold my hand. Dr. Allen came over to say hello to us in the waiting room, noticed I was quiet and asked if I was ok (not really). When I got in the chair, my friend told him I was afraid and he jokingly responded that he “spoke dentist” and he could tell when people stopped making eye contact. His sense of humor and calm demeanor helped me stay as relaxed as I could. I didn’t feel judged for being afraid or not having gone to a dentist in so long. He asked about why I was afraid and understood why someone could be scared. Dr. Allen made sure I was ok the entire time he cleaned my teeth and kept reminding me to breathe while chatting and joking with my emotional support friend. No other dentist has taken the time to explain what they were doing, why and the what the long terms effects of things could be. He showed me the x-rays and went through them with me to so I could see what he was talking about. I had 3 cavities which he offered to fill that day since there weren’t any other other appointments afterwards. Being brave, I agreed to get one of them filled and I’d come back for the other ones. The filling was done so fast and without discomfort or pain that next thing I know, I’d agreed and gotten all 3 of them filled! . After I was done, I went back to the waiting room and played with Dr. Allen’s boys while my friend got his teeth cleaned. Having a small pillow fight with a happy child was a great way to feel less anxious and, once I stopped freaking out, it seemed like a pretty cozy office. I will be sure to schedule future dentist visits here. The whole experience was better than I could have imagined and I am so thankful for the time Dr. Allen took to make me feel comfortable and explain what was happening.

Familia Dental
I have gone to Familia Dental here in NB, Tx three times now. I absolutely love it and recommend it to my co-workers. The first visit was for a deep cleaning on the right, second visit for a deep cleaning on the left, and third visit for six fillings. The dentist is very nice and the staff was very friendly and professional. The dental office was clean and neat. I'm used to ridiculously loud and obnoxious waiting areas with dirty kids running around (San Antonio) and this was a very nice change. The office hours are convenient for me since I work M-F 8-5, two appointments were at 6pm and one on a Saturday. I don't wait long in the waiting area at all and it never took longer than one hour, even for my six fillings. I plan on going back and will take my husband and son there as well.

My family has gone to Dr. Haerens for years for our dental care. He always does a fantastic job with our cleanings and explains everything in detail if any additional work is needed. Dr. Haerens is always so patient with my children that their cleanings are never a fuss. His office staff is always so friendly and helpful. We have dentists who are closer to our home, but we would rather drive further for the great care we receive from Dr, Haerens and his staff. Definitely an A+ office!

I am Jolene Neighbors. I had an appointment with Dawn Brown (dental hygienist) today, December 8, 2016. Dawn has been my dental hygienist for several years, and she is the best! Both Dr. Smith and Dr. Cole have been my dentists for several years as well and are the best, also! I am so satisfied with the dental care I receive and the professionalism and helpfulness of the entire staff that I look forward to my dental appointments.

Affordable Dentures
I had gone about 4 years ago to get dentures from another dentist. the dentures i got did not fit. They were too big for my mouth and when i went to the dentist to have them fixed they asked for 7,000$ to redo them. Last week i went to Avoidable Dentures and crowns. They redid my dentures for less and made them right the first time. I am so happy to have my smile back!

My family, as well as my son's family, have been using Dr. Haerens for several years. We have nothing but the highest regard for his services. We are also aware of his countless hours of volunteer service to the community in helping those who are in need of assistance. We would highly recommend his office to anyone searching for a dentist in the area.

Tips & Advices
This depends on the prosthetic.
  • Dental implants, when cared for properly, can last a lifetime.
  • Crowns typically last between 10-15 years.
  • Resin-bonded bridges typically last between seven  and 10 years. Tooth-supported fixed bridges generally wear out faster than this.
  • Removable partial dentures typically last around 15 years.
  • Complete dentures typically last between five and six years.
The entire process for adding dental implants could take as long as eight months. There are three phases:
  • Phase 1: Grafting. This may take between three and six  months.
  • Phase 2: Artificial root placement. This may take one to two  hours to complete and will take between three and six  months to heal.
  • Phase 3: Crown placement. This is usually done over the course of two visits, two weeks apart.
One dental implant typically costs $1,000-$3,000. However, the abutment (a connector added onto the top of a dental implant) and crown can add $500-$3,000. Multiple dental implants may cost $3,000-$30,000. A full set of implant dentures may cost as much as $90,000, though the average is around $34,000.
A dental implant is a titanium post shaped like a natural tooth's root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gums. These posts allow dentists to secure a replacement tooth or bridge in the correct position.
Maxillofacial prosthesis is a subspecialty of prosthodontics. A maxillofacial prosthesis is meant to rehabilitate patients who have defects or disabilities due to trauma, disease, or those that a patient is has from birth. The prosthesis is designed to replace parts of the bone or tissue that are missing, or to help restore functions of the mouth, such as swallowing, chewing, or speaking. Other prostheses are created to protect the face during radiation therapy. Dentists that work with maxillofacial prostheses often collaborate closely with ear, nose, and throat doctors.
