They spend more time trying to up-sell your procedure than properly performing the one they charge your insurance for. I came in for routine cleaning (D1110 Prophylaxis-adult) that was supposed to be covered by my insurance. They informed me that I had tartar/calculus build-up and attempted to sell me a more expensive procedure
I just returned home from my visit with Dr. Timm and his great staff. I had such a great experience, I thought that I would share!! I have never had such a relaxing and entertaining dental visit. Everyone there was so nice to take the time needed for my treatment and the Dr. never rushed. I am going to tell all of my friends and family to go there as well. Definitely will be returning and will be a patient for life. Thanks Dr. Timm and staff!!!
I just had my teeth cleaned and whitened with the Zoom at this dental office. I was so pleased with the cleaning alone I cant emphasize enough. The hygienist was so thorough and gentle. The girl who answered the phone when I called to make my zoom appointment recommended that I should have my teeth cleaned first since it had been so long. I was so excited they could do it all in one appointment and I did not have to wait. My teeth are much brighter and look great. What a great experience!

I bought a groupon for the Zoom teeth whitening for my wife. She has had the procedure done at another Galleria area dentist and had a great experience. This place, on the other hand, was not very nice, and the people that did the procedure were sloppy and even burned her gums. Before they did the procedure, she was subjected to a long list of cosmetic procedures that they tried to sell her, all at special one-day-only prices. After the long sales pitch, they did the zoom procedure. Overall, we would never use this business again.

i just logged on to write a review of this awesome establishment and i had to laugh when i read the last review with one star. it so happens i was in the office last week getting my teeth whitening treatment while your wife was yelling at the owner over the phone. when i originally made my appointment, the secretary told me to make sure that date would work because there was a change fee for the zoon promotion. i will bet you she told you that as well. i seriously cannot believe you have the audacity to write these wonderful people a review like this. you even said yourself that the work was good. if you ask me, you are lucky they only charged you 100.00. by the sounds of it, i would say they should have charged you three times as much just having to deal with your unprofessional wife. (i wish i could use a stronger word than unprofessional). i am sorry you have to wake up next to her every morning. yes, it was that bad. i will say that the lady in the office handled your spouse with the utmost professionalism, which is more than i would have done. anyone who happens to read this, listen to all the rest of the reviews. seems to me like you are the type of people that go to restaurants with the intention of complaining loudly in order to get a free meal. when that doesn't work for you, you strike back by writing a bad review. i just can't get over how great these people are. the other reviews spell it out perfectly. someone below said that if this is not your dentist, it should be. i agree with that statement in spades! think about it. have you ever seen reviews like this for any other establishment? you folks should just concentrate on making each other miserable and leave the rest of the world alone.

The procedure was fine and folks very nice. But then they lied to me and told me my wife had approved a $100 charge for changing the appointment. She never did. I paid it, not thinking they would lie. And then they refused to refund it when I complained. Not good folks. I would have trusted these people and had more work done there, but not now.
Have been coming here for close to the past year and can gladly say each time I come there is no 15-min wait in the lobby. I am seated in the chair as soon as I arrive and they even ask if I would like to watch a movie or listed to music while the work is being done.
The staff is very professional. My no fault of my own I was 15 min late but they did not miss a beat. They were quick to sit me down and get started. The office is high tech and I watched a movie for the time it took to whiten my teeth. My teeth look fabulous. I cannot recommend them any stronger. I would us them again and I will refer them to others.
The staff at Uptown was quite pleasant and through when I came for the ZOOM treatment today. I was given a phone call reminder and directions a day before. They explained the procedure in detail and answered all of my questions, I even got to watch the movie of my choice from their listing. Great experience and I will definitely recommend to my friends and family members.
I had a great experience at Urban Dental Spa today. I needed some teeth whitening done and they offered the Zoom whitening which I had seen before on one of those ultimate makeover shows so I thought I would give it a try. I gave them a call and Stacy was very friendly and helpful. She took the time to tell me about their practice and lead me to the forms that I could fill out ahead of time instead of being rushed when I got here. She gave me another call the day before my appointnment not only to confirm my appointment but to make sure that I knew where to find them. When I arrived on the day of my appointment, I walked in and immediately was relaxed. Sounds of a little waterfall going on in the background and the surrounding were very pleasant. I was met immediately by Stacy who got me into the system after which I was immediately taken back with no wait whatsoever. I hate having to wait when I have an appointment at other places! Anyway, we get to the back, get me in a chair and in comes Liset. Now, I'm comfy, watching a great movie and I got two hotties taking care of me. Lot better than being at work.... They explained what they were going to do and aksed if I had any questions. The thing that goes in your mouth to expose just your teeth was a trip since I looked like Hannible with it in there but hey, made for a great txt message to my wife. haha. The procedure went VERY well and my teeth look worlds better than when I walked in. I didn't have any pain during the process which I really appreciated....
If you have need to for a dentist or some whitening like I did, I would HIGHLY recomend these folks.

This is an amazing dental office. Everyone from Dr. Timm to the front-desk receptionist area is professional, responsive and friendly. They send you appointment reminders by way of calls and post cards. (love that). I have been a patient of a few dental offices prior to Uptown Dental Spa..There is no comparsion! They make you feel like you are the most important patient!! I live in Katy, Texas and I do not mind traveling to the Galleria area. They are so worth it!
I have been going to the same dentist for about 15 years. My sister has been telling me to go see Dr. Timm because she loves him, and I was ready to make a switch. I went for my cleaning and it was so pleasant. They offered me a glass of wine and visited with me for a bit while Stacy handled my paperwork. It was absolutely the best cleaning I have ever had!!! Summer explained everything to me as she cleaned my teeth and she never hurt me. When I was done, I felt like she didnt miss a spot. It was very relaxing and enjoyable. Dr. Timm came in for the exam and was so interested in what my thoughts were about my teeth, he listened to every word. I loved that he did not rush me and took all the time I needed and he didnt run out of the room. The staff was wonderful, Summer,Yvette, Liset and Stacy all greeted me by my name when I arrived and they all made an effort to say goodbye when I was done. I didnt even get treatment and the assistant knew who I was and spoke to me. I am definitely the lucky one to find such a charming office that really cares about their patients. I will never go anywhere else!
Wow, who knew going to the dentist could be like this! Hadn't been for awhile and knew I had some issues. Was a little nervous (who isn't?) but was put at easy right away when I walked in and the receptionist offered me a glass of wine. Too cool. Was feeling better already. Summer took x-rays on me and cleaned my teeth. She did a great job and I could tell she was doing a thorough job without hurting me. Dr. Timm is a great guy, he listened to me and spent the time discussing my options. It's refreshing to have a dentist with a personality as well. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and I must say I was surprised I had such a good time at the dentist. Can't say enough good things about about my visit. This is how a dental office should be.
I don't like going to a dental office where I feel like I am just another number or in a rush to get me in and out. At Uptown Dental Spa it is quite the opposite. First of all I was asked if I wanted a glass of wine! Then the hygienist took her time to explain different types of cleaning procedures and all this time I thought it was just a teeth cleaning. I did not know there where different types. Dr. Timm I loved because he told me straight up what I need it and was not pushy at all. The staff are all very personable and made my dental experience very enjoyable!
Very pleasent experience. Was ""zoomed"" about 10 years ago. Not fun. However after my experience today, I'm going to get my son an appointment. Great office staff (than you, Summer), and almost wish I could stay around and chat.
Dr. Timm was very easy to talk to, and I could tell he knows his stuff. Highly recommend!
I never really liked going to the dentist. I was hurt as a child and just always feared the dentist. I started to have a toothace. I found uptown dental spa on the internet it was literally minutes away from the Galleria. I called and explained to Stacy what was going on and she was very helpful, I was able to go in the same day. From the moment I walked in everyone was so nice! I never once felt scared, they explained everything they were doing and why. I had so much decay on my tooth that i needed a crown, they gave me the option of doing it since I was already there. I am no longer in any pain thanks to Dr.Timm and his staff. I will definently be going back!!!!!
i just returned home from my second visit at uptown dental spa. this was by far the best experience i have ever had at the dentist office. the place is nothing like the standard paradigm of what a dental office should be. the lobby is painted in earth tones and it really seems like you are in the waiting room of a day spa. they offer you a glass of wine while you are filling out paper work. not cheap wine, good quality Cabernet. the ladies on staff are easy on the eyes and very professional. they have fantastic customer service skills. with cleaning and exam, the staff made me free teeth whitening trays. on my first visit, i had two crowns and a filling done. dr timm has great bedside manor. he is professional, but constantly cracking little jokes to make the patient feel at ease. he was fast too. all of that work was taken care of in about 2 hours. about two weeks later i went back to have my permanent crowns set. i let them know i was in a bit of a hurry because i had another appointment later in the morning. they had me in and out of there in 45 mins!!! my new teeth fit perfectly and i have no sensitivity. i will never go to another dentist office. neither should you.
Stacy, Ivette, and Dr. Peter Timm make me feel like I am actually a grownup individual. The first time I had an appointment, I stated that I was extremely afraid of any type of dentistry. Today (Oct. 19, 2010) was my second vist and their professional tactics and attitude is to die for (not really). I recommend Uptown Dental Spa to everyone/anyone who fears any dental appointment. The satellite radio background is very calming. Jake Medellin Jr.
