Healthy Smiles' number one priority is the health and well being of their patients.

Dr. Vlachakis has been in Houston for the majority of her life. She graduated from Taylor High School in Katy and continued her education at Texas A&M - Corpus Christi where she received a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with Cum Laude honors in both. Dr. Vlachakis also devoted herself to working part time and volunteering at a local hospital as she found her calling for dentistry in those formative years. She then attended and graduated from UTHSC - Houston, Dental Branch, receiving her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.

Dr. Vlachakis met her husband, Michael, while she was in Corpus Christi studying and he was stationed there for the Navy. They have a home near the Heights where they enjoy taking their dog, Mia, to the park or on walks around the neighborhood and then they all lounge at home with Tansy, their cat. Dr. V enjoys traveling, reading, movies and being surrounded by her close friends and family. She hopes to get the privilege to work on your whole family.

I haven't been to a dentist in over 15 years because of "unpleasant" past experiences. The doctor put me at ease and I experienced no pain during treatment. I will be visiting regularly and sending the rest of my family as well. I'm so glad to have found Dr Vlachakis.

I have been seeing Dr. V for two years now and can't recommend her highly enough. Her practice is clean and efficient and they do a great job. I've gone in for both general check-ups and one filling and they always have you in and out quickly. The office can be a little hard to find, but don't hesitate to call ahead and they'll be happy to give you directions.

Loved it. Amy and her staff are so friendly and professional. I was seen right away and was able to get a teeth cleaning during my lunch break! I was in and out of there in a little over an hour since I was a new patient I had to fill out paperwork; however, I think if I didn't it definitely would've been within an hour. My teeth feel great and super clean. Best dental experience. Would recommend.

No longer do I dread going to the dentist. Amy and her staff take *great* care of their patients from the way they handle all the procedures with an eye for comfort to the gracious way they handle feedback and suggestions for better ways to care for teeth between visits. Could not ask for a better experience.

I absolutely love Dr. V! I have recommended her to multiple friends and coworkers. They all love her! Not only for her excellent practice of dentistry but also her work with patients with migraines. She and her staff are the best! Never have had any issues with them. They are very accommodating, friendly, competent and professional. Awesome view from office (conveniently near Memorial City Mall) and they always ask if you'd like music during your visit and take requests for Pandora music :)

I've never been greeted so graciously than when Michael welcomed me upon arriving for my appointment. From the minute I walked in, I was made to feel right at home and I knew immediately that I would be coming back! Everyone was very professional without being stiff and that is very important to me. Dr. Vlachakis was very thorough in walking me through my options for upgrading my smile. Her assistant Cecilia and Hygienist DeDee were polite and very attentive to making me feel as comfortable as I could be during the x-rays and cleaning. I am very happy to have made such a great decision on my first try. As difficult as it is to keep up with dentist appointments, it makes it much easier when you can look forward to seeing great people, with great attitudes who treat you like a good friend, not a client. Highly recommend!!!
