I have been going to Dr. Cyr since she opened her office. I am terrified of the Dentist and have had allot of work over the years. Dr. Cyr has a wonderful way about her. It is paramount to her andher staff that you are comfortable. She always asks what's new in your life and makes you feel at home.

Let me preface this by saying I am very knowledgable of most things medical and dental. If you ever wondered why you hate going to doctors and dentists rest assured you are not in the minority! For years medicine/dentistry was thedomain of mostly men. Not a problem if the pool of potentially awesome docs included female prospects but alas that was not the country nor world we live in. The truth of the matter is as with life to pick and choose poeple based on any criteria short of high acumen, depth of conscience, inclusiveness, and general “awesomeness” with no regard for superficial or cultural trappings leads to very slow social progress. Over 50% of the polulation on this planet is female. So my point is that we now live in the 21st Century and thank Providence that worthy and deserving people like Dr. Lilia Cyr have some opportunity to get into the physician mix. These are the traits one’s doctor should have (DDS/DMD/MD/DO/OD): 1) Superior intelligence 2) Ability to translate learning to DOING/APPLYING 3) A strong conscience or in medical parlance “excellent bedside manner” 4) The ability to explain in laymen’s terms to the patient what is being done or going to be done 5) A positive ambiance in the clinic and/or operating room 6) The ability to be EMPATHETIC 7) Someone who will not quit when it seems daunting or to refer out when they do not know or cannot do something 8) The ability to treat strangers with respect 9) Efficency and proficiency in equal measures 10) An innate acumen or “knack” for their profession; tactile refinement in the case of any surgeon Dr. Lilia E.M. Cyr has them all and then some. Most dentists/other doctors meaning 60% or MORE have maybe one or two. Dentists who know any better will use her as their dentist. Also often overlooked is the PHENOMENAL staff! All the assistants are so nice, knowledgable accommodating and sincere! The hygienists are top shelf! Mary at the front desk is A +++! If you want to know if a clinic is worth your time just look at the surroundings and especially the staff. Are they smiling? Are they aware? Do they greet you in a kind way or even acknowledge your presence? Do they look happy to be there and to see you? Something like a gentle touch or small hands is often overlooked when it comes to dentistry. Dr. Cyr is trained to handle almost any type of dental contingency from orthodontics and implants to general dentistry. If you want the best there is in the region your one stop shop is with Dr. Lilia Cyr and Encore Dental Care. I could write a book, but I’ll leave it at that! Thanks so much for the years of great experiences Dr. Cyr, Mary, Myra and Encore Dental Care!

I arrived early to the appt. because it was my first time to see her. Check in time was quick because I had done most of my paperwork on line. Literally no wait time. Dr. Cyr had a wonderful bedside manner.She made sure I was comfortable before proceeding. During the appt. she performed a thorough assessment and her assistant had done X-rays prior. All in all, a very wonderful visit.

I love love love this place. If i can write a long book i would about this fabulous place. Well this a true story, before i live in Austin and Houston had dental insurance and we all know teying to findthe righr or perfect dentist is very scary. So the first dentist i went to was nice the inly problem was when i there she took exrays and said we gotta pull these teeth out bc it had a infection and a cavity didnt know it was a training office with new assistance learning. So they pulled them out and put a bridge on wasnt happy couldnt smile anymore bc they were uneven then i had another appointment to go back to get the real bridge on and they told me it never came in,i was tranfering to another city so i couldnt wait. Whe i got to the new city i was asking looking around for a good dentis that could make me smile again,well i had book a dentist she took me in bc the bridge was falling off and breaking and would use super glue to hold it (sorry it was a emergency ) so i explained to her during our consultation so she took everything out did exrays etc. The assistant was not helpful he was rough and not making me calm or relax looking at my mouth and eas digusted with my teeth so they put some other bridge on and it looked way worst from the first one. I was geeling way unhappy and depressed didnt want to smile if i had to didnt want to be seen. The dentist said this is tempting for the mean time but had to wait for the insurance to see what it could pay for the next procedure. I went back for cleanings and other service but was still unhappy. Waited 2 yrs had to move to a different city due to job well had a little infection on my actual tooth went to monarch and the wanted to pull all my teeth out and said u need dentures. That just threw me over board and was like im done with dentist. This is a true story i met Dr Lilia Cyr.and was talking to her about my whole experience with all these other dentist. She told me to come in on monday she wanted to check out my infection . So i made a appointment on Zoc Doc and filled out all the paper work and got a confirmation email and it was really quick got a phone call for the receptionist form the office. Her name was Mary very sweet on the phone sounded very caring and was asking if i was in any pain or anything she would recommend something over the counter to take. I felt wow shes very nice . Monday came around went to the office met the nice lady Mary very humble /sweet fiiled.out some paper work and went from there. The office felt very cozy and warm had a very good vibe about this place. Waited to 5 min then there was a assistant open the door and introduce her Self her name was Myra she shook my had and tolk me to follow her to this chair she was so sweet to me talking to me the whole time i was sitting in the chair sheade me laugh and was telling me stories which made feel great . She explained everything she was doing and went from there. Then there was another assistant her name was Vanessa she also shook my hand introduced herself also,i was blown away with the customer service here was very happy and excited about having a smile now lol. She was very kind and funny also them 2 girls made me laugh while i had stuff in my mouth lol. Then Dr Cyr came in the room was very happy /excited to see me and have a a hug while i was in the chair i huged her back and said in very excoted to see you. I said im leaving it in your hands now your the dentist no pressure lol we all strarted laughing. She took exrays and showed me what my next steps will be i felt happy now, she told me my tooth with the infection can be saved i was like yes,she cleaned it out and prep it up and built it up. Then she told me about everything else for the next procedure. She said no more bridge this has to go she said i was a good candidate for implants theat i need 7 of them she said if i would be happy the thaat and showed me the model of it. I was very impressed and said hell yeah doc lol you do your magic. So she prep me up got eveything cleaned out felt way happier than ever. She was talking to me to see if i had any pain or if she was putting pressure to hit Myra with my left had lol she was cleaning my teeth an preping me up for the implants. Short story lol i am way happier i have 7 implants from the surgery never had pain at all plus have braces to get all my bottom teeth straight. I recommend and referred family friends clients coworkers to see her and they have. I give the whole staff rewards or a plaque for best outstanding customer service award. And it's no joke i highly recommend this place if you are like me scared afraid of dentist no be this place is like a family and a perfect team. I give this place 5 more stars and beyond. This a very ture story and patient Thank you , Mr PT -B

Being new to San Antonio, I choose ZocDoc to check on reviews for a dentist. I had a great experience from the time I checked in and during my cleaning procedure. Filling out my history was easy, the staff was friendlyas well. My x-rays went smoothly! (Some might say x-rays feel weird, but I would expect them to get every detail of my teeth! - That's what they did.) Dr Cyr was kind with introducing herself and went straight to working on my teeth. She was very detailed, even explaining to me as she cleaned my teeth and showing me what she was finding! All of my questions were answered. I highly recommend coming here! I also felt very comfortable. Thank you!

First time client. Receptionist thought I was another person and asked me if my name was ........, that was not my name. Was never introduced to dental assistant, finally asked for her name. Dr. Lila Martinez Cyr quickly fixed the issueI came to her office for, she also never introduced herself, only stated that she saw me enter the office. How do you pronounce "Cyr"? I was never addressed by my name, or how it is pronounced if there is a perceived challenge with my name. How could I have a different outcome? To feel invited into this office, then into the dentist chair, and finally, having a stranger (stranger, since no introductions were made) work inside my mouth. Not being acknowledged by name is disrespectful. There are two professional letters of recommendation that are combined with information about Dr. Lila Martinez Cyr educational background inside one large frame. The two letters mention a dentist retiring and selling his practice to another dentist. This second dentist later sold the practice to Dr. Lila Martinez Cyr. There are no dates on the letter heads, so am unsure of time frame of each dentist departure and entrance of new dentists, including Dr. Lila Martinez Cyr. Dr. Lila Martinez Cyr letters state her credentials, as well as her educational acknowledgements among her peers in 2010. Has Dr. Lila Martinez Cyr had this practice since 2010? There was one other patient when I arrived, and one other patient arriving as I was leaving. Xray equipment is outdated. When xray was being taken, film dug deeply into my gum and assistant continued pushing it into my gum and asking me to firmly hold film holder and rigid film in place. When I said film holder + film hurts my gum (with equipment in mouth), she responded that this is the only xray equipment they have.

Until this visit it had been quite awhile since i had seen a dentist ( bad wisdom tooth removal experience) so i was hesitant to go in, but i saw that she had absolutely amazing reviews on this site as opposedto the other dentists that i looked at. But i was so impressed i have already gone back to have some cavities filled ( did not feel a thing the entire procedure) I also had a regular cleaning, which was painless and great compared to the cleanings had elsewhere in the past. And i have another appointment set up to have the rest of the work i needed done. it is no hassle at all to go here. the prices are great ( i have humana insurance). The people are so nice and they do wonderful work i would tell anyone to go here. You will not be sorry!

From Mary (up front) to Myra (who got me "seated" and prepped and X-rayed ... and who was more helpful than I remember any dental assistant ever being) ... and, finally, the leader herself, Dr. Cyr, who in non-robotic manner explainedwhat the X-rays revealed to be the problem, discussed my symptoms again, especially any pain. Soon was rescuing me from a problem that involved most teeth on one side of my lower jaw. The expertise and the personality all kept me from dread and pain. When finished, I felt more impressed and warmly relieved than I remember ever being from my many dentist visits (and major "rescues") over the decades. Encore, indeed! I'll be back to this establishment/crew for years to come.
