I just recently received treatment for a broken tooth, and I got to say that I have found a dentist for life. The staff is so friendly and helpful. They treat you like family and quite frankly I got to say that I was terrified of going to the dentist always and now I think that I’m very comfortable knowing that I’m in good hands. I would recommend dental artistry to anybody that is looking for a very professional and family environment. Awesome!

Not a dentist appointment fan, but here they made sure I felt at ease and comfortable. I had the most comprehensive new-patient exam and left knowing exactly what my options are. 100% recommended! Friendly, client-oriented, professional and knowledgeable staff. They know how to take care of patients who struggle with dental visits.

To say I was impressed by the extremely thoughtful and professional service is an understatement. I have been to various dentist throughout my life and the women at Dental Artistry surpassed my expectations. If you are looking for a new dentist and you are not a fan of going to one in the first place, look no further. You will feel like you are at home and you will feel that you are cared for--because you are! They even have Netflix to watch on noise-cancelling headphones while you are getting your treatment (in case you don't like the sound of the tools on your teeth).

My experience with Dental Artistry has been lovely. All the women that work there are kind, friendly, and professional. After years of avoiding the dentist, I needed to have significant work done. The treatment has been painless and quick.

You know how you can sometimes be skeptical when you see an overwhelming number of positive reviews on a company's website? Especially when some comments seem too enthusiastic to be true? Well, those are the kind of reviews I was reading on the Dental Artistry site so I decided to drive to their office in Irving to check them out. I was so impressed I signed up for an appointment that very day. Since then I've had some procedures done and am working with them on a plan for my long-term dental care.
