This was the most enjoyable dentist appointment I have had in a long time. Extremely professional and competent staff. Felt relieved and secure that everyone knew what they were doing. Especially impressed with the hygienist - I usually dread my teeth cleaning because I have sensitive teeth, but she recognized this and took the time to do it without the machine for my comfort. These guys are great!

Pleased with all aspects of this dental office. Since retiring 4 years ago (and needing to change dentists because of insurance) we have gone to two other dentists and we're not pleased with either. Now we are satisfied!

I seemed to wait a lot longer than I did at my last visit. I was brought back for x-rays in a timely fashion however the time between the x-ray and the dentist seeing me was longer than expected, and the time between the dentist and the hygienist was far longer than I would expect. The overall time I spent there was 1.5 hours which seems a bit slow given past experiences. However everyone was very nice and the service itself was still great.

I really enjoyed my last visit. I hate going to the dentist and I know that most people do, but I felt very comfortable yesterday and really enjoyed getting to know my hygienist. She did a wonderful job cleaning my teeth. I had very little anxiety which is a big deal for me. I also really appreciated the orthodontist and his willingness to fix/replace my permanent bottom retainer. Yesterday was a really, really great visit! Thanks again!

My experience was great although I experienced issues with the x-rays... it took a great number of bad x-rays to get the right images so I was exposed more than I should have been. An experienced assistant took the lead and got the job done much easier and faster. My dentist and hygenist greatly impressed me with their good work and advise.

I felt like the hygienist was rushed and not as present as I would have liked. She was in and out of the room until she started the cleaning. She was good and I was pleased with her cleaning but overall not as much as usual.

I have to say it took 3 visits to find my cracked tooth. The girl that took exrays a few weeks ago had major problems getting the right pictures. Even when we located the sore tooth, I was told to eat on the other side for a while. Clearly the pain was the cracked tooth! This last visit was much better and the assistant was very good!

Question #7. Dr Upright/Dr Dent are working on a treatment plan and are supposed to get back with me. My answer on #7 is not negative, it's just too soon - the plan is being developed. Dr Upright is very personable. I like it when a physican shows that they are "human" also and don't have a chip on their shoulder because they have DDS or MD behind their name.

Dr. Dennis and his assistant were great with my root canal procedure and treated me with the highest quality of customer service and patient care. I was really nervous about the procedure but he clearly communicated to me the process during the procedure and had great touch and precision during the root canal. It's my first day of recovery from the root canal procedure and I only have some minor soarness and no pain. Dr. Dennis has been the best to work with from the office since I've been a patient at Sugar Land Modern Dentisry.

The receptionist acknowledged me as soon as I walked to her desk with a warm smile. I felt comfortable. The waiting area was neat and clean quiet. The dentist explained what the issue was with my oral health and what the procedure is was about to get. My hygienist Shanna was awesome she explilain everything to me I actually felt more comfort in know she knew what she was going to do. I was the student and she explained it to me so I would understand. I was comfortable in the chair she made sure of that the whole time. My teeth have never felt so good. The finance Lady explain the cost and payment plan for my procedure. Look forward to coming back for another visit. Thanks again I have and will continue to refer people to this dental office. My smile is back!!!! Paying for what I was given is extremely affordable for anyone.

My appt was timely. My wife had to wait over 20 minutes for the dentist to come in after her teeth was cleaned, only slight negative. Everything else about this practice is professional and great!! I do wish they would reopen the pediatric dentistry office so my whole family could go to one place for all their dental needs!! But I would definitely recommend them for anyone looking for a good dental practice.

I have been very happy with the level of service provided to me and my husband at this facility. We have different insurance and they worked with both of our providers. The dental team has given us phenomenal service each time we visit. We have both had major work completed this year and each visit has been a breeze. They give a clear explanation of what is covered by insurance and out of pocket expenses. The treatments are quick and mostly painless. I had a root canal done and I was in and out of the office in less than 1 hour!!!

Luke the hygienist was VERY capable, professional and courteous. However, I could not understand what he was saying most of the time. He has a beautiful accent, but I really needed for him to speak more slowly for me. I didn't want to embarrass him so I didn't ask him to do so...I probably should have.

I had a great visit. I had a different Dentist and Assistant than I had had before. Both were excellent and I was very impressed. First time I had my teeth cleaned with the newer method and it was quicker and more comfortable. If I have anything negative at all it was that neither my husband nor I got toothbrush kit our visit this time. I knew it was time to get a new brush and I put off getting one because I look forward to my dental kit. I know I will get the right kind of brush that way. Now I have to put it on my list and remember to get one at the store. I hope I will continue to get one in the future.

Disappointed that services provided were not covered by my insurance even though I was assured the services would be covered. I made it a point to question the coverage but was reassured insurance would cover at 50%. Have now been notified the service were not covered and that I would be responsible for the entire amount. The office manager did reduce the amount without any hassle but I'm still on the hook for the balance. Other than that issue this office and its employees are really great.
