Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Lena exceeded my expectations. Quick, efficient, and super friendly. This was my first visit and I've already recommended to a family member.
Lena and her assistant were wonderful and I will definitely be letting people know how amazing they were.
Favorite dentist ever. Lena is the best!
I think she is really listening to my ideas and concerns. Been happy with her 2 times in a row. Dr Lena is a great professional, whatever she touches is looking really good!
Dr Lena and her staff were super friendly, professional, and even stayed late for me ona Friday!!! I'd highly recommend her to anyone who has dental needs.
Very sweet and quick to get you from the waiting room. Sometimes her intern/assistants don't seem to be well versed (everyone has to start somewhere), but Dr. Salha works to do the very best for you. She saved my tooth that was only about 10% left. Eventually, I might have to have a root canal or implant, but for now, she's fixed me up!
I love seeing Dr. Salha and her staff!
I need multiple crowns replaced or redone within one year of Dr. Sahla doing them. I would not recommend her.
Dr. Salha is very kind! She helped me look at the problem areas with my teeth and told me why/how come things build up in certain areas. The hygienist is also very kind and helpful! They have really nice equipments there, but the XRay machine can hurt a little, I have a small mouth. They also provided a washcloth to wipe my face down afterwards, so very good hospitality. Will go again!
Dr. Salha and her staff are absolutely amazing! I went to see her after not being to a dentist for almost 20 years, and was very apprehensive. She and her staff were so kind, understanding, and put me at ease. I could not have asked for a friendlier or better experience. Thank you to Dr. Salha and her staff for being such kind, professional and lovely people!
SHE IS AWSOME!!!!!! I am terrified of doctors (especially needles) and she was so comforting and sweet. Her workers were also very sweet and caring. If there is a rating higher than a 5star I would so give it to Dr. Lena. Thank you Doc
Lena was so kind and welcoming. Her assistant was lovely as well. Prompt and professional.
I had a sudden and painful issue with a crowned tooth (infection/abcess). Dr. Salha got me in immediately for an exam, and had me on the road to recovery right away. For various reasons this was my first time going to the dentist in over 20 years, but due to my recent pleasant experience with Dr. Salha's office, I plan on starting back up with regular cleanings and maintenance of my teeth. I will go back to this office for all my future dental needs. Thanks Dr. Salha!
My experience was great, friendly staff, no wait time, very knowledgeable.
Dr. Salha was excellent! Very personable and helpful. She was willing to work with me on the price of a mouth guard when my insurance wouldn't cover it. Also, her dental hygienist Karen was highly skilled as well. Best cleaning I've had in a while!
Lena is awesome. She made me feel very comfortable and actually did the cleaning herself, which I have never seen before. She let me know exactly what she was doing, what everything meant, and what she will need to do for a follow up. This is the first time that I don't mind going back to the dentist
She is probably the sweetest person I've ever met in my life, and made my daughter feel very comfortable and cared for! Highly recommend her.
Lena was very friendly and caring. She seemed to really know what she was doing. My only complaint was that she really pokes at your gums, which I liked because she was able to spot problem areas that other dentists have missed. Sensitive people might want to check out some other places though.
I have had awful experiences with dentists and orthodontists in the past, so I was a little anxious about my appointment. Dr. Salha and her assistant immediately put me at ease. The office is cozy and welcoming with flowers and a courtyard garden. I've never had an enjoyable experience with a teeth cleaning before, but that's what I got with Dr. Salha. She is friendly, warm, and personable. She is very thorough and yet also very gentle with her work. I absolutely recommend Dr. Salha.
I love Dr. Salha. Her bedside manner is the best!
I am very pleased with Dr. Lena! First off, the office looks great and its obvious its well taken care of. Everyone is incredibly friendly as well! She was very up-front about pricing and insurance which I appreciate a lot, since sometimes I worry about something being more than I expect. I look forward to seeing her again.
Definitely knew how to take care of my issue & right away did the recommendation & appointments that needed to be done before evan leaving the office .
Very professional, efficient and painless. Explained each procedure thoroughly.
Dr. Salha is so friendly and has a wonderful bedside manner. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family and will be returning to her for all my other dental needs.
Extremely personable and professional. Followed up with a nice thank you card in the mail. I would recommend her to anyone.
Felt very good, she is very friendly and caring.
Dr. Salha and her staff are very thorough and attentive. I was seen right away and she took her time answering all of my questions as well as going over everything. She went above and beyond when I even had questions about my insurance coverage. I have already recommended her to my entire office!
Excellent service and very professional. I highly recommend Dr. Salha.
She is a good dentist. My gums were sore after exam and cleaning. She was thorough and really cleaned between gums and teeth. They are very patient centered.
Seemingly very unconfident in her abilities. Told me for 3 different things that she could not do the procedure, and would have to refer me out. The only thing she seemed capable of doing was a cleaning. Her assistant was rough and unenthusiastic and was irritated when I bled while she jammed the bitewing in my mouth for x-rays. Dr. Salha was NOT upfront about costs and I left paying way more than I had walked in expecting to pay, and after having a procedure performed on me that I didn't understand before she had already started performing on me.
She has a great bedside manner and she is very meticulous. I'll go to her again.
She was great!
I was blown away by how kind and cooperative Dr. Salha was. She let me know what exactly she was doing and why she was doing it every step of the way. It's very important to develop a liking for a dentist before really coming to grips with the idea of allowing them to dig and jab and scrape and poke you in the mouth with sharp instruments, and Dr. Salha is just a very likable and positive person who obviously loves what she's doing. Her office took care to inform me of the out-of-pocket costs of a follow-up procedure that I need to have done. -- Next time I'm in Austin and need to see a dentist, I will definitely be returning to Dr. Salha
Loved the visit. Dr. Lena was the friendliest doctor I have ever seen.
Dr. Salha and her assistant Rene are amazing people. They put me at ease immediately. They are very caring and loving.
she was short staffed but i managed to get in,,
I'm extremely nervous about dentists, and I've had quite a few less than stellar experiences in the past that have only served to fuel the fear. My visit with Dr. Salha was very different. Dr. Salha was very friendly, and didn't make me feel judged or guilty for the condition of my teeth and gums. She seemed to make it her personal mission to make sure that I felt more comfortable with my image, and gave useful tips and tricks for me to help take better care of my teeth, and also told me everything she was doing and why it would help. She seems to genuinely enjoy her job, and everyone in the office was very friendly. I will definitely be back!
My experience was pleasant. Dr. Salha and her staff were very friendly and thorough with everything! The office was clean and comforting. I highly recommend this dental office for all ages.
Loved her a lot and really loved her staff and helpers. She really knows her stuff. She took great care of my teeth and took time to show me what I need to have done and why. She made me feel very good about my teeth and smile. Loved her office ambiance. You do not feel rushed. will definitely tell all my friends about her.
Dr Salha is one of the most charming dentists I have been to. Not only is she kind, and compassionate, she is also very knowledgeable in her field. Her office setting is ultra modern and very high tech. Her staff put me at ease and her office is so spa like and all the nice relaxing aromas floating all over the place made me feel very comfortable. All the rooms are so spacious and look out to the backyard with all of her pretty flowering plants and trees. I would just go there to read it is so relaxing , nice and very clean. Loved my dental visit.
I will return
I will return
Dr. Salha was so nice and really put me at ease.
This was my first time with Dr. Salha, and I loved her! She is such a sweetheart, and was very gentle and funny. I always put off going to the dentist, but wont anymore. She took the time to show me my x-rays, and explained both what she liked about my teeth, and were she was concerned. No complaints!
Dr. Salha was very friendly and made me feel extremely comfortable.
She is incredibly nice and very honest. She does amazing work.
