My experience at Crescent Dental with Dr. Shahwan and his staff was the best dental experience I have ever had. Everyone was incredibly friendly, helpful, and patient. I had an appointment for myself and my two children (ages 2 and 4). My four year old was having a hard time and incredibly scared. Dr. Shahwan and his staff were extremely patient with her and made every effort to calm her and were able to help her get through the checkup and cleaning. Dr. Shahwan did a great job explaining everything to the kids in terms they could understand and made them laugh and feel better about the experience. After leaving, my daughter said it was a great experience and she would be happy to go back in six months for her next appointment. This is definitely a great practice for the entire family. Not only did my children get excellent care, but I also had a great appointment. I felt like Dr. Shahwan was honest with only the dental work that I actually need and wasn't trying to talk me into unnecessary procedures to make money (as I had previously experienced at my former dentist office). I would highly recommend this dental office to anyone.

Your company of Crescent Dental in San Marcos, Texas, under the public relations of Ms. Rachel Valdez, has been well received by our school district of San Marcos CISD. At Travis, Ms. Valdez, called first for permission to hand book marker for each student at our campus. After hearing her pleasant presentation, we agreed. The next day Ms. Valdez came with enough book markers for each student and some to donate to the library. The students loved them! Plus she went above and beyond to bring water bottles with a business card for each administrator and office staff. The way Ms. Valdez represented your company encourages us to bring her to talk to the families of our students. She will be working with Connie Perez to have Family Night thus discussing dental health. I, for one, plan to use my dental insurance at your firm. Thank you for selecting a beautiful and compassion employee to our school. Welcome to San Marcos CISD!

Generally I am NOT a fan of dentists. Much like the math teachers growing up, I always seemed to get the impersonal, impatient and plain unfriendly sorts which didn't instill a lot of confidence OR inspire loyalty...The first moment I entered Crescent Dental I knew something was different. The front desk women were very warm and welcoming, not to mention the modern pop playing softly in the background and Despicable Me showing on the tv, which seemed to relax me from the start. This was the smoothest dentist visit I can remember having in my 42 years. Thank you, Crescent Dental for finally changing the way I feel about dentists! :)

Crescent Dental in San Marcos, Tx is a great place to go to get any dental work done. The wait was only 5-10 minutes and the staff makes you feel comfortable while there. The receptionist Vanessa all my questions I had before my procedures and helped me checked in. DR. T and the dental assistants made sure I was okay the whole time and told me everything they were going to do before doing it. When leaving the other receptionist, Erica, helped me understand my treatment plan, payments, and answered my questions I had after the procedures. The whole staff has great customer service and I would recommend them to everyone.

Excellent Dental ExperienceI had not been to the dentist in years due to a VERY traumatic experience I had. Dr. Shahwan and his whole staff were very nice and understanding. I went in for a broken tooth his staff was able to get me that same day. I was very anxious about the whole visit but they were very patient with me and didn’t make me feel rushed. I was able to make appts around my schedule when I was comfortable both emotional and financially. Office was very clean with update equipment; the staff was friendly and personable. I highly recommend Dr. Shahwan at Crescent Dental!

I just moved to town and was looking for a new dentist in the local area...after a checkup and cleaning with Crescent Dental in San Marcos I don't need to look any further. Dr. T was easy to talk to and explained what he saw in the x-rays and his recommendations for treatment. He also gave me a timeline for treatment and discussed alternatives (to better fit my budget).The ladies at the front desk were pleasant and easy to work with in booking my next appointment.I would recommend Crescent Dental to anyone!

they have great customer service and make you feel comfortable whether your going in for just a cleaning, check-up or further work done. They call to confirm your appt. as well as text you which I enjoy because I am very forgetful and when it pops up on my phone to confirm my appointment all I have to do is reply "YES". Would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for a new dentist office or wanting to find a different one.

Everyone is great!!!!! They all make sure you are comfortable and understand everything! The receptionists Erica and Vanessa are polite and nice and answer any questions you have!In the back, Dr. Tijerina and Mercedes and John are all nice and make sure you are comfortable and ready before starting any treatments whether it be a cleaning or getting rid of a nasty cavity! I would definitely and will definitely come back!
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
