  • Love this dental office! I was looking for a new place and so happy I chose this one. As soon as I went in for the first time, the front desk ladies were very welcoming and kind. They explained the dental plan very well, so I knew I had to get it!! It really did save me money. DR. MICHAEL HOLMES assisted me the first time and DR. KEVIN CHUANG assisted me the second time I went. They were both very gentle with my teeth. They both asked if I was doing ok while the process of my deep cleaning. I really recommend this Ideal dental, you will be wishing you would have found this place sooner! I have my next appointment tomorrow and can’t wait! Call and book appointment today!

  • I rarely give my rating but this one is worth it. If I can give them 10 stars I would. Dr Holmes and his friendly and professional staff are excellent. Like most people, I get really nervous every time I go to the dentist but Dr Holmes and his staff make sure to keep me calm and comfortable. On top of it all, they work with you on your payment plan. Great experience! Professional staff!! and last but not the least, excellent dentist!!

  • Well today I went to Ideal Dental, not such a big fan of the dentist. I sat for a root canal and extraction all in one sitting. I hesitated to do both but I had to suck it up. This was the most comfortable, relaxing experience I have ever had at the dentist and Dr. Holmes is very patient and takes his time with his work. I will definitely be making this my permanent dentist!!!! Thank you Dr Holmes and the team at Ideal Dental!!!!

  • Dr. Holmes and the entire crew at Ideal Dental are so professional, kind and helpful. I’ve had several crowns done, and have special circumstances as I’m allergic to Lidocaine. Not only were they prepared but were also very attentive and made my dental experience the best possible. I highly recommend this office.

  • I have started grinding my teeth again in my sleep, so I came here after a referral from a friend. Super nice location and really easy convenient parking. Dr. Holmes did a thorough exam and decided it was best to fill the holes I created to decrease the chance of food getting stuck and later causing decay. The two fillings were quick and painless, and I didn’t even need to be numb! The assistant Stefanie was great as well. The trays for my night guard impression didn’t jab into my gums like they have at other offices. Definitely my new go-to office!

  • My son and recently visited this location for routine cleaning. We transferred from one of the Houston locations. I’m always skeptical about new Dentists, just because your smile is the first thing people see, so it’s important to maintain great dental health. Unfortunately, I was born with bad genetics on my teeth. I always need something done, even though I see the dentists on a quarterly basis. After my initial X-rays and exam Dr Holmes introduced himself, I felt very comfortable and confident in his skills. He had great bedside manners. He took the time to show me all of my imaging and areas of concern. Unfortunately, I’m use to hearing I need something done. Since I’m in the medical field I knew he was correct in his diagnosis. I didn’t feel like he was just trying to get my business. His assistants and office staff were also great. Stephanie was awesome, she made my son and feel very comfortable and took time during my procedure to make sure I was doing ok. The office staff explained my benefits thoroughly and they also offer payment plans even on your out of pocket portion, which is great for me. I feel very confident in their work and am looking for to going back to finish up my work in a few weeks. To a woman, Finding a great dentist is like finding a great gynecologist, when you find one you like, they are yours for life. Great thing about him is that he’s young enough to be around for mine for a long time!!.. He’s also great on the eyes!!

  • My wife and I have had nothing but great experiences here. I’m surprised to see so many negative reviews. I had not been to the dentist in about 5 years prior to starting treatments here in 2015. I was recommended to get a “deep clean” which was long and unpleasant but I feel like it helped my mouth. Since that time I have been coming quarterly and every single visit has been satisfactory. Dr. Michael Holmes is a super nice guy, and the same is true for the dental hygienist, Samantha. The front office administrators are good too. My insurance and HSA has covered most services here, but I don’t feel like they have tried to misguide us in any way. They are just taking care of their patients. I would recommend this place to anyone in the area. I’m skeptical of these negative reviews after more than a year of using this office.

  • Great experience. Was a new patient, didn’t wait in the waiting room for longer than 5 minutes. Dr. Holmes is very nice, always smiling and does a great job of explaining your situation. His assistants are great too! Love that they constantly ask how you’re doing to help make the uncomfortable situation of getting fillings a bit better and show they care. There’s a television in the room so you’ve got something to watch while they do work. Lastly, services were quick! 2 fillings, I was in and out in 40 minutes.
