Verified Patient Reviews
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 and her 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 the domain 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.
Cannot say enough about the great service provided by all of Dr. Cyr's staff. In 72 years I have seen many Dentist's offices. I will say unequivocally, that this office is the best I have experienced.
awesome dentist. she took care of me right away. she is very honest and doesn't try to rip you off like other places. Highly recommend her to any one looking for a dentist.

Dr. Cyr is awesome! Clearly the best dentist I have ever had. She is so upbeat and positive about everything I will definitely continue to see this dentist and switch all of my dental care needs to this office.
I loved my visit. The staff was very polite and pleasant. I was a bit nervous about seeing a Dentist after 5 yrs from my last dental work but Dr Martinez Cyr made me feel comfortable and safe. I should probably mention that my last dental experience was not a possitive one and at a different place. I have found my new dentist. Thank you.
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 find the 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 friendly as 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!
I love going too the office. The staff is wonderful and they make you feel right at home. And Dr Cyr is wonderful. She is patient and takes the time to explain things to you until you understand. She is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. And the staff rocks too ?
She was great and so was her staff. They were all so sweet and very helpful. She explained everything she was doing and was very gentle.
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 issue I 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.
Dr. Cyr is undoubtedly a gift to San Antonio, she is caring, warm, professional and competent in spite her teenage look :-) Her staff are no less angles either, they are pleasant, caring and professional; I did not even have to hold a clipboard :-) Thanks, all of you, for getting me out of pain so quickly.
Dr. Lilia was fantastic! She was very professional, so friendly and all of her staff went out of their way to make me feel welcome and comfortable. I was very impressed and highly recommend her.
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 opposed to 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!
Dr. Cyr and her staff are always professional, friendly and caring.
The office staff and the doctor were GREAT!! Everything was explained from beginning to end . May have found my regular dentist.
Dr Lilia Martinez is amazing in every way you can imagine!; I'm very lucky to have her as my Dentist!
I was very pleased with the entire visit and staff. They were all very friendly. My children were very comfortable with Dr. Cyr. She talked to them and asked them questions the whole time and before you knew it, the visit was over and their fear of the dentist was forgotten. Dr. Cyr's work was very clean and she talked me through the procedure. I would highly recommend Dr. Cyr!
Awesome experience! Dr Lilia Martinez Cyr and her staff were extremely, professional, courteous, and personable! They took great care of me during my recent visit. I highly recommend Dr. Cyr for all your dental needs!
This was an amazing visit. I would not have believed a dental visit could this comfortable. Everyone was great to deal with.
Dr. Cyr is great. I enjoy every visit, even for my cavity. - from a 9 year old
My family and I have been going to this office for two years. Dr. Cyr is always professional and patient with all my questions and concerns. She is wonderful and a great doctor.
this is one of the easiest and most relaxing visit to the dentist that I have ever had
Dr. Cyr and her staff were very professional, knowledgeable and very nice! They definitely have your best interest in mind. I have found my dentist for sure! Highly recommend her and he staffs services.
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 explained what 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.
she and her staff are great!
Best I've ever experienced
Just moved to the area and after hearing my colleague told me "there are no good dentists in San Antonio", I was a bit scared about going to a dentist. I had a very positive experience with a physician I found through Zocdoc in another city so I decided to give it a try. Checking in was a breeze. In fact, all I had to fill out was the privacy agreement document. I was impressed that Dr. Cyr actually did 100% of the cleaning. She was professional. There wasn't anything wrong with my teeth so I can't really speak for the quality of treatments but I got good vibes from the practice (I work in the medical field as well). Anyway, I had a very positive experience today and will return in 6 months for another check-up for sure.
I am extremely thankful to Dr. Cyr and her team. My tooth chipped in the middle of the night, and she took me in early the next morning. The staff is very friendly. Dr. Cyr is very professional, caring, and really good at explaining the procedure. I am really happy that I found such a great practice and I will highly recommend Dr. Cyr and her staff.
This was the Best Dentist I have had since I have been going to many of dentists. I am 54 years old my husband had a broke tooth he hates pain he told Dr Cys in she made sure he did not feel anything it was his lower jaw tooth she explained everything so patiently in clearly so very understanding he assistances was on top of everything I did not even have an appointment was waited on also , yes I say this dentist is great it was a very ,very big blessing for us to have been guided to her she oulled his tooth he did not even know it was out she really is a Blessing hope more will visit this office.
Very pleasant atmosphere, and very thorough doctor.
She was great, really friendly and professional and let me know exactly what she was doing and why in an understandable way. I have found my new dentist!
Going to see dr Martinez is quick, easy and fun. She does a great job and makes you feel right at home!
Dr. Cyr was really fantastic! She is confident, knowledgable, and very personable. I would recommend her to everyone and anyone!

Daughter was seen for a braces consult. Visit was very informative and pleasant. Dr Cyr made her feel comfortable and answered all of our questions. Took her time and did not rush through our appointment. Going to bring my entire family here.
Great bedside manner and makes sure you are comfortable during any procedure. Highly recommend.
Absolutely fantastic experience! What a sweet, courteous, helpful staff and comfortable facility. I needed a filling in my back molar and was able to get an appointment at the time and date that was best for me with zero hassle. I booked it online through ZocDoc and received multiple reminders of my appointment. Dr. Cyr was the best dentist I've ever visited, bar none! She has fantastic bedside manner, was quick and efficient, had all of the modern equipment you should expect from a top tier professional, and best of all... No pain! Dr. Cyr's skill and expertise was evident the minute she looked at my chompers. She made sure I was comfortable at every step of the procedure and has the perfect touch for dentistry. What a fantastic trip to the dentist. I already scheduled my annual exam and cleaning for next week. I have found my dentist, people... And she is good. I couldn't recommend Lilia Martinez Cyr, DDS highly enough. A++
Dr. Martinez repaired my tooth when the cavity fell out immediately. This had to be repaired due to another dentist's shoddy work. The charge was minimal.
Dr. Martinez was very professional and explained things very well. Both the doctor and her staff were very pleasant.
It was a very pleasant visit. Everyone was very professional.

Good visit, very courtious staff. Highly recomend this office.
The office is very clean, well equipped and beautifully decorated. The staffs are amazing. They're very friendly and helpful. They even make me feel I'm their relatives or family member. They're careful, honest and funny. And doctor Lilia Martinez Cyr is just wonderful. She might look young but very professional. She makes me so comfortable that I even enjoy my treatment (which supposed to be painful). I never want to go anywhere else. Would highly recommend!
Wonderfully friendly staff! Staff are professional and made my appointment painless and enjoyable.
She was very friendly and personable.
I would definitely recommend her!! She was very informative and very polite!! My teenage daughters were very happy with the service they received.

I googled dentists in the San Antonio area and found her. I was very impressed with her positive nature and the level of service she provided me.
I had a very excellent experience. The staff was happy to help me and made me feel right at home. Dr. Martinez was very professional and courteous to my needs. I definitely picked the right dentist.
Addressed my concerns and gave me medication.
My children like her and she did a wonderful job on their teeth!! They will be going back!!! Thank you
She was PHENOMENAL! She explains everything, and shows you on a monitor at your chair what she's going to do. Her office is so conveniently located, clean and beautiful, her staff very nice, professional and accommodating.... I can't say enough, by far the BEST dentist and dental experience I've had in my long life! BOOK NOW!!!
She was very comforting and thorough, she left me in a great mood after my visit. I would definitely recommend her to all my friends...

Outstanding! Highly recommended!.. Made going to the dentist for a cleaning quick and painless
She was very kind. Highly recommend! Staff was great! They made it very reasonable to make a payment for the procedure. Overall awesome visit!
OMG!!! Word cannot express the joy i have. This was my first visit. I went on for an emergency. See i had chiped my tooth over the weekend. Though it wasnt hurting I needed to get it fixed. After some short paper work i was wisked away into a room. Immediately i was being preped. Xray dental history etc. After about a 10min wair for the xrays to develop the dc was in to see me. We reviewed the findings together. Discussed some options and got on with the procedure. Though most dental work involves some pain it was nice not to have my mouth spread as wide as they could. Everyone was soo polite. I really enjoyed this visit as much as one enjoys going to the dentist for a crown. Highly recommendt Dr. Cyr.
I thought Dr. Cyr was fantastic. I especially loved her bedside manner. She truly went out of her way to make sure I understood the information she was telling me. Also went went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable during the cleaning process. The staff were also wonderful and very accommodating.
It was great! I was made to feel extremely comfortable and she is such a sweet and caring dentist. My visit was quick and painless. I have to say I actually enjoyed going to the dentist. Two thumbs up!
She made me feel very comfortable
It was fine.
