One word to describe our office: Honest. We will give you our professional opinion about the condition of your teeth and list different options on how to fix the problems or prevent new ones from occurring, and we can do all this without breaking the bank.
We are a dental practice devoted to restoring, enhancing, and preserving the natural beauty and function of the smiles of the Brazos Valley and surrounding area. Combining modern, state-of-the-art technology with traditional work ethic and practicality, our work will result in beautiful, long lasting smiles that are surprisingly affordable. Started in 1996, Honest Dental, with Drs. Svajda, Pharr, and Tyler, is a caring, positive environment for all your family's dental needs. Here are a few tenants upon which we practice dentistry:
At Honest Dental, we believe Jesus Christ to be the living Son of God, and we are only saved by faith in His death on the cross and resurrection from the grave. With this truth in mind, we strive to serve others in the same way we have been served by Christ. We each only have one life to live, and using it to love God and love others with the gifts and talents given to us is the best way we can live!
A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and preventative dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay on top of the changes and recommendations for our profession. As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, taking x-rays when necessary, and making referrals to specialists when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health. If you ever have a question about your dental health, we're always here to help.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us, especially in light of recent events. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
We understand that many people are not only nervous about coming to the dentist, but also the cost and time it takes. With this in mind, we take measures to decrease the cost and time it takes to receive treatment at our office. We do a majority of our own lab work to reduce the cost of dentures, flippers, crowns, and other treatment. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible by accepting walk-ins. We will even work through lunch to ensure same-day treatment, such as a flipper, is ready for delivery. We make every effort to reduce cost and time for our patients, so they can have a quick, enjoyable experience that is worth telling their friends and family!
A Positive Experience
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We're called honest for a reason!
We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you!
