Patient Review By Heather H
I highly recommend Dr. Moya and his staff. The implant process was almost a year, but Dr. Moya walked me through each step of the way. He is very personable, very knowledgeable, and very good at what he does. I hope that I do not need another implant in the future, but if I do, Dr. Moya will be my first call. Thank you for a job well done.

Everything went as planned. Waiting time was always minimal. Office is very clean and staff are friendly. Text messaging was used to tell us when to come up to the office. Very prompt!

Patient Review By mara z
I went in there was major pain. Dr. Moya did not let me go another day in pain. Immediately he got his staff to get me in the next day for my extractions. Everyone was helpful and very nice! Unfortunately he does not do most of the work that I am needing done. If so he would be my first choice to go back to. I will go back to get my implants done when needed.

Patient Review By R C
Thank you sooooo much for fitting me in last min. Losing my front teeth was one of the most traumatic things that has ever happen to me! Do not know what I would have done without your help to put my "teeth" back in the right location. Everyone in the office was very kind and made me feel very comfortable. Thank you again!

Patient Review By Pamela F
I"ve been thru a lot with dentists and have lots of apprehension, but his chair side manner and knowledge completely put me at ease and his evaluation of work previously done was very detailed and explained what the next steps should be were very encouraging. I am sure I have finally found the right DR!!

Patient Review By M.J. B
I would highly recommend Houston Oral Surgery Associates. I had extensive work that needed to be done and Dr. Moya and his team made the entire process manageable for me. I am so very happy with all of the procedures needed and only wish I had stepped up and had implants done much earlier.
