    Alyssa is extraordinary. She is a dental assistant that can clean your teeth professionally! I advise anybody to stop by Ideal Denal and get your teeth clean by her..

    The staff at Ideal Dental are polite, intelligent and meticulous. I have a wisdom tooth procedure and Dr. Pham explained to me the options of getting this procedure. Also, the financial options exceeded my expectations. Overall, this is a great dentist.

    This dentist office has been so wonderful to me and my family. Each member of the staff is so kind, personable, helpful, and informative. I had not been to the dentist in years because of previous negative experiences and have had absolutely none of the sort in my experiences at Ideal Dental of Forney. I have now been multiple times and will be giving them my patronage for the foreseeable future! Amazing team!

    I had a wonderful experience in the office today. I went in for a cleaning, was able to check in from my car (due to COVID precautions) and was promptly addressed, 5 mins later. My hygienist was Alyssa, she was awesome! She worked quickly and thoroughly, and was very nice from beginning to end. It briefly made me forget my nerves of being in a dental office during a pandemic. Dr. Shovak was nice, as well. I’m glad to see Customer Service is still prominent in public places during these tumultuous times. Two thumbs up!

    The staff was very friendly!

    I did not have to wait very long in the waiting room before be called back by the dental assistant.

    I have been to other Dentist in the past and actually feel asleep because the wait was so long.

    I was also quite taken by surprise by the affordability of the dental work that is so badly needed.

    Today was my 2 nd visit everything went smoothly from me walking in being greeted, to a short wait to see the dentist Ms. Shovak is great.
    I have nothing negative to say at this time about the service or procedures.
    The cost is expensive but was less priced than the other dental offices I’ve contacted.

    I would recommend this office.

    My wife has not been to a dentist in at least eight years – part for lack of time, part for anxiety and fear – so when the time came to finally get some basic dental work done, she was hesitant to say the least. She chose Ideal fairly randomly and gave it a shot for a check-up knowing that if she hated it, she could wait a little while or try someplace else.
    As she went through with her check-up, she found herself having a panic attack during the middle of the exam. The technicians worked with her and helped ease her nerves. She decided to go back to them for the deep cleaning and fillings she needed and once again her expectations were exceeded with Alyssa, one of the technicians, who was patient, kind, and knowledgeable on anything she had questions on. She humored her as she got a little loopy and was incredibly patient throughout the process and her nervousness.
    Walking away from the experience, my wife has nothing but good things to say about Alyssa and this office. In a world where we need special insurance for our mouth bones because they have audacity to be in our mouth and most people my age have to go without insurance because of our screwed capitalist system that values corporations over human life, Ideal Dental made the whole process a whole lot easier and that’s all that matters.

    Today was the first time going to the dentist since I was a teen, and I’m 27 now. My experience was amazing! I was soooooooo nervous knowing I havnt been in years and not exited to get my mouth poked at. (I’ve always been afraid of the dentist) Dr. Paul Pham made my whole experience fun as weird as that may sound. But he walked me through every step that should be done to my teeth (which wasn’t as much as I thought) first he suggested to get fillings done on top then come back later to do the bottoms. Following with removing my wisdom teeth on top then the bottoms later. Whatever made me feel at ease and comfortable. I didn’t feel a thing today as he was grinding on my teeth. Didn’t even feel the shot. I was so relaxed I almost feel asleep during the drilling. I’m so glad I found a dentist and now my husband can get some work done too without worrying if it’s going to hurt or not. Also if anyone has their tongue pierced, as long as you wear plastic and clear, they don’t care if you have one. I know some dentist won’t do work unless it’s out, but that there could heal within an hour or two. They didn’t say a thing about mine 😉 thanks ideal dental I Feel better knowing I have a great dentist to go to.

    Today was my first time visiting Ideal Dental and I felt welcomed . I usually avoid dentist offices because of bad past experiences , but the team at Ideal made me feel so comfortable and they were all very polite and very professional . I haven’t seen a dentist in almost 4 years and I thought I was going to get bad feedback and feel like I haven’t done a good job taking care of my teeth but the people who helped me today made me feel like I was doing a good job and talked about the options I had to fix the issues I had with my teeth and two different payment options to fix the important issues first . I felt like they truly cared and wanted what was best for me. I’d definitely recommend this Dentist office to friends and family.

    My first appointment at Ideal was truly an ideal dental experience. I recently moved and could tell I was receiving friendly/quality care, which was definitely a step up from my last Dentist. The staff especially Dr. Shovak and Brenda were very accommodating, gentle, and easy to talk to. They allowed my husband to sit nearby and even asked if we wanted to change the tv channel. I was a little nervous because it was my first time with cavities. Dr. Shovak told me how my mouth would feel and told me to raise my hand if it was ever too uncomfortable. I loved how Dr. Shovak wanted the best for my teeth. She fixed my grooves until they felt normal to bite. Thank you Ideal Dental Forney, I’m not afraid of cavities anymore!

    This place was a godsend. My wife had been suffering from a broken tooth for a little over ten days. Her normal dental office found a small infection and refused to do anything until the infection was gone. They gave her antibiotics that made the pain worse and the infection got larger and they still did not examine the tooth. She was going to need a root canal but they only did them on certain days and through other companies. My wife called Ideal Dental at 8am, we were seen at 8:20 am, and by 930 the same dentist who examined her, the wonderful Dr. Pham, began her root canal. Within 2 hrs of calling, my wife was out of pain that she had been in for almost 2 weeks. She cried actual tears of joy. The staff was incredible, helpful, personable, and exceptionally efficient. This is the best dentist office I have ever been to and they will be getting our family services from now on.

Brenda the dental assistant help set up everything perfectly and Shatoya the main dental assistant made sure I didn’t feel a thing while assisting Dr. Shovak, Shatoya took xrays and impressions and I never felt a thing Everyone was so professional and nice and my teeth have never felt more perfect. Ideal dental of forney will forever be my dental home, be sure to make them yours as well
