Patient Review By Mary F
All 3 of my teenagers have had their wisdom teeth surgery performed by Dr. Moya. His office is friendly, professional, on time and the results were without any complications ALL 3 times. I hear other parents lament their choice in oral surgeons after a terrible experience and that just doesn’t happen w Dr. Moya. Thanks for such great care!

Patient Review By Allison B
Thank you Dr Moya and staff for a great experience. From the consultation to follow up after surgery, I was pleased with everything. I was very nervous but was assured that all would be okay. I followed all the instructions and everything went just as they said it would. Dr. Moya answered all my questions before and called me after to make sure I was doing okay at home. Highly recommend!

Dr. Moya and the entire staff were very friendly and made me feel totally comfortable. Dr. Moya fully explained the procedure and the necessity for it. They scheduled the procedure a few days later and a followup visit one week later. I was very impressed by the entire experience! I would definitely recommend them. Great job to all!

Patient Review By Crystal M
I was referred to Houston oral Surgery associates by my dentist and I'm so glad she did. They have the best service. I never waited more than 5 minutes to be seen. Dr. Moya is amazing if I could see him for everything teeth related I honestly would. The dental assistants as well are amazing. All of them! Overall a great experience. If you need any oral surgery done pick them.

Patient Review By Anna E
I was thoroughly impressed with Houston Oral Surgery. After hearing many wisdom teeth horror stories, I couldn’t have been happier with my experience. The surgery only took an hour, Dr. Moya gave me a detailed recovery “playbook” which I followed and ended up having zero pain or swelling. It was amazing! I was completely back to normal after 4 days. Overall, everyone was very professional, courteous, and I felt like I was in good hands the entire time. I highly recommend them to anyone needing to get their wisdom teeth removed!
