Tezel Oaks Family Dental
Excellent, caring doctor and staff. Very very professional and very friendly. They are experts in their field. Make you feel like you are part of their family. Had dental work done and it was a breeze, no issues whatsoever. I recommend them both for children and adults. Dr Vargas is a great doctor and has an awesome personality.

Daniela Dental
I've been coming to Daniela Dental since I retired from the army in 2012. I live over 2 hours north of Daniela Dental, and think nothing of driving that distance to see them. Their skill, professionalism, service and kindness-is unmatched! I can't say enough good things about DR. Nguyen and her staff-please go to see them!John RiddickKilleen, Texas

Diana is very friendly and helpful. Michelle did a great job cleaning my teeth and taking x-rays. I was very pleased. A few days later, returned for a root canal and temp crown. Dr. Nguyen was excellent. He and all his staff were absolutely wonderful. Highly recommend this office.

Kool Smiles
Never taking my kids to this establiment again my poor daughter got a silver cap put on and the cut up her tongue. They wanted to do a procedure on my other daughter and when I went back to ask if it was necessary they told me no as if they were just doing it for insurance money.

Dr. Salinas is the best dentist I've ever been to. He is honest and extremely knowledgeable. He takes the time to explain procedures and processes you might need and is very affordable.

Kool Smiles
I am eager to boast about my first-class experience at my local Kool Smiles I had recently. As soon as I walked through the doors, the beautiful front desk girls greeted me so politely and left me almost in shock that I did not have to wait to be called to the consult room as soon as I signed in. I didn't even get the chance to take a Snapchat selfie before I went in for my regular cleaning. The dental Assistant, Maria Hernandez, took my x-rays so gently and quickly. She sat me down in my chair and beside me was the hygienist ready to clean my pearly whites. After my cleaning, my dentist Dr. Razai gave me a full exam and she even fit me in the schedule to take care of my cavities the same day! I was beyond pleased with this procedure. She took off piles of glue my past orthodontist had accidentally left on my back molars. I can finally bite correctly, and my jaw no longer bothers me. I am profoundly appreciative I found a dental team that treats me like family. My experience was stellar from beginning to end, and I'm sure I am not the only patient to have received this level of care. Thank you, Kool Smiles McCreless office!
Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
