I highly recommend Dr. Osagiemwangbon Omoirawuz and the office staff. Dr. Omoirawuz work is high quality work and you will not be disappointed. And, the cost was very affordable. Dr. Omoirawuz is very thorough and very compassion with his patients. He displayed extreme professionalism with his work, communication, and his overall office staff. They work amazingly well together. Highly highly recommend Dr. Osagiemwangbon Omoirawuz at South Texas Dental and his office staff.
Brought my daughter here a couple of weeks ago for her first visit. The front desk staff, techs, and dentist were all very welcoming and kid friendly. They made my daughter feel very comfortable and relaxed. The hygienist (Susan) was very personable and walked my daughter through each step easing her fear of her first time jitters. I definitely would recommend this place!
I always have a great experience when I visit south texas dental 28th st.The people are friendly and knowledgeable. The doctor is a delight. I would definitely recommend this place.
My entire family has been seeing Dr. E since 2011. She is a very caring human being and she works diligently to keep your teeth healthy. I had restoration (filling) and crowns work done. Dr. E is a perfectionist in her work. If she is not happy she will send the crown back to the lab until she satisfied! Dr. E extracted all four (4), my Nieces wisdom teeth. My Mom has had fillings, crowns, and root canal. She has wonderful hygienists that thoroughly clean your teeth, make recommendations and educates. I highly recommend Beyond Smiles Dental and Dr. Evangelista. She treats me and my family like her own family! 😁
Dr. Lala is great. I've not been keen on going to the dentist over the years (I'm 62) until I started going to Centreport Smiles a couple of years ago. Dr. Lala and her staff are very caring and friendly. Best dentist I've ever had.
Everyone was nice from the moment I walked in to the time I was finished, great customer service. The doctor was so sweet & funny she took her time although I was the last one she did her job & was not in a rush. Can’t wait till my 6 month checkup
I am very impressed with the staff and very thankful for the kindness, consideration, and care given to me and my sweet dog, Trudy. It was time to say goodbye to my 16 year old dog and I contacted Animal Doctors. Dr. Daniels made time in between surgeries to take care of our dog in her last minutes on earth. Dr. Daniels and her staff were so sensitive, attentive, and kind throughout the process. I am 50 years old and I have always had dogs, so I have been through the end with many dogs and I must say that this goodbye was the most peaceful, sweet, and respectful that I have ever experienced. I am so thankful for the compassionate care provided by Dr. Daniels and her staff (receptionist and technicians) and I will never forget how gently they handled me and my dear Trudy.
Very poorly managed. Took my daughter for braces and qualified for care credit. They wanted me to pay them and care credit which would end up being $300/mo for braces. Gave me no other options. I had called weeks before for someone to call me in regards to finances so I wouldn't waste my time taking a day off if I couldn't afford payments. Needless to say they told me the lady was fired and didn't even apologize for no one taking her place to call me back. Front desk never has the same people in there when we go. The lady that did my daughter's cleaning was also complaining about how unorganized the front office was. Would highly recommend you find a better place, because this one couldn't care less about their customers. There was also another woman that had them pull her files on her daughter in order to move to another dentist, I should've known at that point that it was not a good idea to seek out this place.
My children have been going to this dental office for 5 plus years and we couldn’t be happier with our experiences. The doctors and staff are very helpful, patient and friendly. The office is clean and kid friendly. My boys were taught to question anything they don’t fully understand and or makes them uncomfortable, the staff has been very patient with their 100’s of questions and in explaining their procedures. As a parent I feel at ease knowing my boys are comfortable and in good hands.
From the staff upfront to the back the professional is A1. The atmosphere is relaxed they are courteous. The dentist is very good in explaining process of procedure. I recommend this Dentistry
Choosing the right vet for your pet can be tough. After all, your furry friend can't tell you how he or she feels about the doctor. Even though you're not the one treated by the vet, whoever your animal sees is obviously your decision. Since many veterinary diseases and injuries can turn into emergencies very quickly, it's important to have a go-to vet. This way, you can ensure you'll know whom to see when your animal needs care.
Speak to your friends and family about vets who've treated their pets. You can even talk to your groomer or an animal shelter worker for referrals. When you visit the clinics you've been referred to, check that the facility is clean, animals are separated and the staff is calm and courteous. Not all clinics are American Animal Hospital Association accredited. This accreditation isn't a legal necessity, though a clinic that's AAHA-accredited is guaranteed to offer high-quality medical care. To receive accreditation, the clinic has to meet the AAHA's standards in the areas of facility, equipment and quality care.
If you're looking for a specialist, you want to make sure he or she is board-certified to practice in that specific area of animal medicine. You'll want to make sure your vet is also convenient to visit, so there are factors to take into account.
The type of animal you own should play a part in which vet you choose as well. While your options are vast if you have a dog or cat, you may have to visit an avian clinic for your bird or an exotics clinic for your snake.
Just as there are many types of doctors, there are many types of vets. Some focus on livestock or house pets, while others may specialize in dentistry or surgery. They may work in a veterinary clinic or zoo, working specifically with the animals housed there, or travel to farms to work with livestock. Since horse racing and other equestrian activities are so popular, some vets are trained to work just with horses.
Diseases, like malaria and yellow fever are also transmitted through animals. Some vets have insight to diseases that affect both humans and animals. Vets have contributed to the treatment and cure of many diseases that plagued both humans and their furry friends.
Government agencies employ veterinarians as well. When an animal comes from a foreign land, these vets quarantine them and check for any diseases that may be present in an effort to control new diseases that can be brought into the country. Other Specific types of vets include:
A vet assistant works alongside the veterinarian and helps out around the clinic. In some cases, they may assist vets in surgery or restrain struggling animals during tests or lab work. The everyday duties of a veterinary assistant include; monitoring and caring for animals after surgery, keeping medical records, cleaning animals' teeth, feeding and bathing them, cleaning cages, sterilizing surgical equipment, giving animals medication, collecting samples for testing and performing laboratory tests, and offering grief counseling to pet owners.
It's a good idea to bring your pet to the vet regularly. This way, he or she becomes familiar and comfortable with the care providers, and you can stay on top of your pet's preventative care. If the animal is small enough, bring it to the office in a carrier. Just as you visit the doctor for a yearly check up, you should bring in your pet for regular check ups as well. During a routine veterinary visit, the vet will probably begin by asking you if there have been any changes in your pet's behavior or habits.
The vet will then take your pet's vitals, like weight, temperature, pulse and respiration rate, and perform a physical examination of the pet. During a physical exam, the vet checks the abdomen for swollen organs, and the legs, feet and joints for any potential problems. Depending on the age, breed or condition of your pet, your veterinarian may also check the eyes, ears and mouth.
When your vet conducts a full body examination, he or she will check out your pet's coat and skin, noting any hair loss, itchy spots or lumps. Keep note of your animal's shedding habits so you can let the vet know if anything seems abnormal. The vet will check for parasites, fleas, ticks, mites and heartworms as well.
Vaccinations are also important to your pet, especially if you have a cat or a dog, and your vet will suggest that you make sure they're current. Keeping up to date with vaccinations can prevent your furry friend from getting distemper, rabies, hepatitis and lyme disease. Some vaccinations last longer than others, so speak to your doctor about staying caught up with your animal's shots.
Just like your own health insurance, you want to make sure your animal is covered before he or she needs veterinary services. Some common animal surgeries can cost thousands of dollars, and you don't want to end up having to foot a surprise bill that costs more than your paycheck.
There's no set price for pet health insurance. Costs can depend on factors such as where you live, the age and breed of your pet, and how much coverage you want. Before you take out a pet insurance policy, you'll want to meet with your vet to go over what he or she thinks your animal should be covered for. Many vets believe that you should make sure cancer, chronic disease, hereditary and congenital disease, and common breed-related medical conditions are all addressed in your policy.
Some pet owners can't afford insurance for their pet, so there are other options to make paying for surprise pet visits as easy as possible. Some pet stores have wellness plans - which tend to be much cheaper than an insurance policy - that offer shots, check ups, screenings and discounts on various procedures your pet may need. A lot of veterinary offices offer payment plans for pricey procedures as well, as long as you have decent credit history. For a last-ditch option, there are even privately funded organizations that offer pet owners financial aid for their pet's treatments.
