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!

Patient Review By MICHAEL E
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!

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!

I cannot express how relaxed I felt from my very first visit. I expressed to Dr. Moya that in my 47 years of living his was the first and only doctors office I did not cry in. I still need extensive work done.. but now I can start my journey of achieving my goal but this time without fear of the dentist. Thank you ladies.. and Thank you Dr. Moya!

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.

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!
