I looked online for a new dental center for me and my husband. saw this one and liked their website, so I scheduled an appointment. Well, after canceling twice on them, they called me back and so i decided to finally make time to go. I’m pregnant and they told me i only had so much time before I wouldn’t be able to get work done when i reached my third trimester, so I was glad they cared so much. Very refreshing. I went in and the paper work i filled out at home online so there was no wait. another great thing! the office looks so nice and clean and everybody was so nice, polite, smiling, it was peaceful and quiet in there. very welcoming and the equipment looked very current and high tech. The dental hygienist was awesome. She was so friendly and easy to talk to. I didn’t feel rushed at all, felt very taken care of. Dr. Vela was very polite and professional. The whole thing was great, from walking in, to xrays, to getting our bill, and scheduling our next appt. I’m so glad I went! My teeth look great, I feel good, and they gave me tips and stuff. You won’t regret going with them! I promise.

AllSmiles is a caring and professional dental office dedicated to their patients. Stephanie is awesome as well as Dr. Vela, Sam, Lourdes, and all the staff I haven’t personally met. I read once that the dark side of intelligence is anxiety because the person tends to overthink in the least-likely scenario. A patient who needs to be treated with more patience can be grateful and delighted at the commitment and enthusiasm of AllSmiles staff to ensure anxiety stays at the door, helping the patient to develop new (and positive) behaviors. From the level of comfort they provide, to the positive psychology methodologies they use, there is no doubt AllSmiles is in the business of people, combining science with personalized treatment and a friendly attitude that helps a patient feels relaxed. I hope in the future, AllSmiles opens more locations in the state of Texas and is recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA) as the exceptional business they are

This honestly is the best place ever! I was terrified and embarrassed to go to the dentist, but I have nothing but praise for the staff and doctors. I only wish I could remember the name of the dental hygienist that treated me, she deserves all the praise in the world. I’m actually looking forward to my next visit, which is somewhat ironic.

Karalea H. from San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


I used to be that person who never went to the dentist unless something was wrong, and I mean really wrong! When I went to see Dr. Vela and the staff because of some major issues, they took great care of me. They didn’t lecture or make me feel bad for not seeing a dentist sooner. They made a great treatment plan and scheduled according to what was best for me. I now go see them every 6 months for my cleaning and check up. I never thought I would ever routinely go to the dentist like you’re suppose to. They are very professional, flexible, do amazing work, and sincerely care about you as a person! Best overall dentist experience!

I just got my wisdom teeth taken out!!! it was the most amazing experience I have ever had. And I have had some crazy experiences. Dr. Vela did and amazing job!! His assistant Sandra was so kind through out the entire procedure. I had my teeth cleaned while back and Sylvia did a great job getting teeth all clean and shiny!!! I will always be grateful to everyone here. You are all amazing people and I love every single one of you!!!!

Beth R. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


My journey with All Smiles started in March while vacationing in San Antonio. I had an emergency and they took me in immediately. I live in Houston and it’s now August and I’ve been back 5 times and still have a few more appointments to go before I’m done. I can’t say enough about EVERYONE there from the amazing ladies up front to the assistants that help the hands down best dentist I’ve ever had!!!!! I’m a little partial to Dr. Velas as he is the dentist I’ve had the most contact with but I assure you they are all above qualified and so super nice!!!!

Alyssa Felan (Source: Google)


The very first day my son and I walked in the door, we immediately loved the office. Everyone was so friendly, helpful and responsive, three great combinations that a business SHOULD have. The most valuable quality All Smiles has is that they put us (the customer) first. I would go so far as to say that All Smiles sets a benchmark in customer service that other businesses could learn a lot from. And anyone reading this in search of a new Dentist, try them. Trust me, you will love them as soon as you walk in the door. I highly recommend them to anyone in the San Antonio area.

I had a great visit, no wait time pre work forms done ahead of time and x rays done immediately and then my cleaning . Everything explained to me, friendly service and just a great fast, efficient and productive office being run. Will recommend to all my friends and family! Very happy with my dentist visit and Stephanie was great, gave me a tour and explained everything to me step by step which helped calm my nerves. Thankyou for a great visit!

Maribel S. from San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


All Smiles Dental Center is a top notch facility and the care is the absolute best. The service from the moment we walked in until we were personally walked out by our hygienist Stephanie was by far the best customer service we’ve ever received at a dental office. Dr.Vela is extremely thorough and makes his patients feel comfortable by explaining his process and putting patients and parents at ease. Our daughter has never been so calm and happy to be at the dentist. I’d definitely recommend anyone who’s looking for a clean, professional, family atmosphere to go to All Smiles Dental Center! They do not disappoint.

Sa R. from Corpus Christi, TX (Source: Yelp)


I spent three hours at Alpine Dental after being advised they could repair a chipped tooth (that needed a crown) only to find out they could not schedule me until next month. I was frustrated because not even a temp crown could be put on. Very unhappy so I called 6 or 7 dentists and no help and I happened upon this office. It was everything I hoped for and more. I was asked to come in within an hour, they did not focus on everything else but what I needed fix ( like Alpine Dental) and they immediately took care of the issue. The Dentist was very good, he took time to fix and build up the tooth. The temporary crown looked perfect. I have read the other reviews and if I read them before, I would have been inclined to avoid going there but I can assure you I was more than pleased with the work. It was the right color, it fit perfectly and they took time to make sure it was right. I was told to call them back right away if I felt any pain or discomfort. It is hard for me to believe if you vocalized any concern to this team that they would not immediately remedy the situation. Maybe they have changed their practice since the last negative reviews were placed and often we learn from our mistakes. I did not know anything about this office, I came in highly frustrated and they fixed everything and more leaving me a very satisfied and happy customer. I go back in 2 weeks and if anything changes, I will be the first to update this post. Otherwise, I have to say the crown work is top notch and I am happy with the work so far. They are very attentive and caring – and they seem to care about their patients

Terry P. from San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


This was my very first visit. Highly recommended by a coheart I scheduled an appointment. I must say from day one everyone was professional, attentive, friendly throughout the visit. An old fashioned southern hospitality welcome. Was given a bit of history and a tour before placing me in a room for the initial visit. This indeed ease my anxiety of a regular dentist office. I know for sure I mattered as a patient not just a dollar. Yaresi scheduled my appointment Gigi checked me in Crystal gave me a tour and very gently took xrays. Dr Vela very warm friendly and professional introduced himself before the exam. There was no rush he sat and discussed the plan individualized for me. Eased my mind of past diagnosis. And on top of that didn’t have to come back for an additional appointment for my cleaning Sylvia took care of this. Being very gentle. I know this was very lengthy but it’s very rare for this profession. Did I mention a gift and a personal signed welcome letter from all of the Doctors.

This place is amazing. I was recommended to go here at the advice of the 1-800 dental hotline when I called and complained about a filling that had fallen out. And they picked a pretty good place. I was amazed at how clean and organized All Smiles has their facility. The staff here are attentive and very welcoming. There’s little bottles of water and coffee at the front if you need it (I took one cause why not?) They listened to my needs and offered me a list of good solutions. I highly recommend this place. I’m just glad they took my insurance. Give them a try

Dr. Lorenzo S. from North Central, San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


Excellent customer service and dental staff! I have been going to All Smiles for many years, and the team they have is exceptional! Dr. De la Rosa has also been my dentist since I was a teenager, and I feel like one of the family at this point. His son-in-law, Dr. Vela, has also performed many procedures on me, from root canals to crowns, and they both are quality professionals. Their dental support staff, both in the office and in the dental rooms, give you 5 star care at every turn. Stephanie, Sam, and all the other dental technicians and hygienists go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at ease. My entire family goes to All Smiles, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! I highly recommend All Smiles to anyone seeking dental services in San Antonio and the surrounding area!

Utsabeth E. from San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


I have been to 2 other dentist in San Antonio but this place made my experience welcoming. I’m one that doesn’t like to go to the dentist and will wait last minute or until I can’t bare the pain any longer to go to the dentist. I was feeling some discomfort and decided to try this place because of the great reviews and a friend referred me. The entire staff was wonderful, very courteous and help answer so many of the questions I had. I highly recommend anyone looking for a dentist with great staff to come here!

Caitlyn J. from San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


My family and I have been coming to All Smiles Dental Center for several years now and not once have I ever been unsatisfied with the care or customer service. Everyone in the office is very knowledgeable and helpful. The office is very clean and kid friendly which is a big plus in my book, my daughter never loved coming to the dentist until we started coming here. You’re greeted with a smile and treated with the upmost respect from the time you walk in until the time you leave. Dr. Vela and his staff do a wonderful job with not only myself but with my children.

Amanda Deibel (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I have been going to All Smiles for over three years now and I’m always greeted with a warm welcome. They have great hours and are open late some weeknights and on Saturday, which is great for our busy schedules. I love that they give you a courtesy call and email to remind you of your appointments. This family owned business really makes you feel welcomed. Dr. Vela and his team are wonderful and always keeps us informed (from procedures to insurance and billing). Mrs. Vela is a fantastic Dental Hygienist! She is very gentle and friendly. If your looking for a great dentist you need to check them out. They’ll take care of you and your family.

Charles S. from San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


I’ve always came here for my normal dental care and the service has been excellent. My daughter has been coming here as well and now she is making the transition to braces. Dr Vela and Dr De la Rosa are truly incredible individuals that have always been very caring for myself and my 10yr old daughter. They’re very transparent in the advice and take the time to really help me understand what to expect and our next steps for my daughters braces. I can also say their schedule flexibility makes it very easy for me to get her appointments scheduled. This is a great place with excellent service! -Charles

Joshua R. from Seguin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to the All Smiles Dental Center for a couple of years and have never had a problem with them in any way, shape, or form. Scheduling has never been a issue. I was able to book an appointment for the next day after learning they’ve been reopened for about a week or two (due to COVID) and fully expected to have to wait another month for an appointment. They’ve always been gentle and friendly for every single check up and cleaning I’ve attended. I HIGHLY recommend this clean and professional Dental Center. They always go above and beyond to make sure they can protect my health during these uncertain times with temperature readings before hand and limited access to the building. Thank you All Smile Dental Center.

If you want exemplary service, amazing rates and incredible staff, come here. They take excellent precautions with COVID, they will see you in an emergency and they value their patients above everything. All Smiles is passionate about dental care and clearly puts patients over profit. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this practice. Plus they’re in a great location. They offer several services and won’t attempt to sell you on work that you don’t need. Absolutely thrilled I came here. Was Blown away by the the affordability after receiving my treatment plan!! I just needed to add they took such amazing care of me during a dental emergency, took me in when they were already busy and took incredible care of me. Offered such incredible service and WOW the technology. Can we also talk about small details such as offering blankets, offering lip moisture (vaseline) which I have never been given at a dentist before, constantly being checked in with throughout the procedure to make sure I was ok and always talking through what was happening. From the time I walked into the office until the time I left EVERY single staff member was compassionate, kind and genuine. I am still blown away and I feel completely at ease with my care. They spent hours taking care of me and addressed additional needs while keeping me completely comfortable. I am seriously so grateful for my care here and, again, if you’re not getting your care here, you’re completely missing out.

Cynthia T. from San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


Friendly friendly FRIENDLY people! The only drawback of my current job right now is I don’t have dental insurance, so I can’t see my friends at All Smiles. However, they have mentioned they are very accommodating for folks without insurance. Regardless, every single visit to All Smiles has been a joy, and that’s speaking as someone who gets major anxiety with anyone sticking tools and fingers in my mouth. The hygienists make conversation, they ask you what kind of music or shows you want to listen to while they work, they offer you free water. I can go on and on. (Shout out to the amazing Sylvia!!) They gave me a really cute metal tumbler which I still use, they give you movie tickets when you refer new customers, and they genuinely care about your teephers. As soon as I get dental I’m scheduling an appointment here. Dr. Vela didn’t hesitate to refer me to an oral surgeon when he noticed my bottom two wisdom teeth were being problematic. If Dr. Vela approved, he had to be good. Both doctors did excellent work and All Smiles has my complete trus

Jennifer T. from San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


All Smiles Dental Center is the BEST dentist in San Antonio. The atmosphere is very calming and nice looking. The staff are some of the nicest people I have ever met! When my 3 year old had to have a couple of cavities worked on but wanted me very close to her they rearranged everything they had to do so I could be right there where she could see me. They hung in there the whole time and never even showed the slightest bit of frustration! As a new patient they give you a little gift for coming and seeing them and they are always doing something special for their patients. If you don’t have a dentist or are unhappy with your current one I would definitely suggest you go see them! You won’t regret it! My 3 year old loves going to the dentist now because of the staff at All Smiles!

Best Dental Place hands down! I went in today for a tooth ache and ended up needing my wisdom teeth removed. Stephanie was very patient and explained everything to me as I was freaked out! Dr.Vela made my numbing be pain free (I hate needles) Such wonderful stuff and they make you feel so welcome. Got a little tour upon my arrival and a welcome bag with a nice tumbler. I definitely will be back for my other wisdom teeth to get removed and to try to get my husband in! Thank you so much for taking care of my teeth and making it a very fast and easy process. Will be recommending this place to everyone.

I’m terrified of dentists, it’s just a thing I have. I went to All Smiles in horrible pain because I put off going to get my root canal. Finally I showed up there miserable and nervous, they worked me in that morning. The front desk staff was fabulous and very sweet. The whole staff was so kind and gentle and welcoming. My dentist rocked! It was the best experience I ever had at the dentist. I literally enjoyed my root canal! Who can say that?!?! I strongly recommend going here, I’ll be a loyal customer to them from now on. The sweetest people and the best service ever. No heavy hands and painful experiences anymore. Plus it’s family owned and I love to support anything local, just a added bonus.

I walked into this office without and appointment, thinking it was a long shot they’d be able to see then and their. They took care of me. I was treated incredibly well. Went back a few days later to get my wisdom teeth removed (all 4), even though i was overly anxious Dr. David Vela really knew what he was doing and talked to me during the process, making it an easy breezy quick procedure, felt no pain. This place is really amazing and they have now become my forever dentists. I definitely recommend this dentist office!

I tried All Smiles Dental for my recent 6 month check-up and I’m so glad I did! I was greeted and welcomed by the nicest staff! I was given a tour so is know where everything is. I was given a personal welcome note and gift. My hygienist was incredible! She was extremely gentle cleaning my teeth and I’m very impressed with how clean and white my teeth are! She was very friendly and considerate. Her dad (the dentist) came to check my teeth before my cleaning and took a lot of time to speak to me about my concerns and my history. I really have no complaints and I will be going back in 6 months!

George L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have an unnatural fear of dentists but was finally forced to seek dental care after I recovered from an infected tooth. I was impressed from the time I walked in the door. The staff was smooth, courteous, and knowledgeable. I thought my extraction would exemplify all the reasons why I hadn’t been to a dentist in decades. I was pleasantly surprised. I’m a fan and I’m going back. I had a tooth that was snapped off at the gum line and I was prepared for a long arduous and painful visit but it was virtually “over” before it started. Kudos to the staff and the doctor and “yes” I got a welcome gift.

Alejandra H. from North Central, San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


First time coming in the office, was just a pleasant feeling. The receptionists are very welcoming, and the setting/environment was absolutely refreshing. Working as a front desk for years, the receptionists really do enjoy their job. As soon as I walked in “Ms. Harness can you sign in please?”. That feeling of comfort that you receive when they know who you are is a nerve relief. My appointment was scheduled for 1:15pm. I came in 15 minutes early for any paperwork to fill out, and I was called back at 1:13. Very nice and on time. The hygienist, and Dr. Vela came to see me after sitting in the dental room, introduced me, offered me a drink, blanket, channel on tv, and a goodie bag! That was the best part. Lol. Very educational the Doctor is, as well as the hygienist. They give me my estimated price that was covered by the insurance and scheduled me right away. It was the quickest, fastest, yet so relaxed appt I have had in a long time. I just would love to say, I recommend this office to anyone with a search of dentists. I yelped first before selecting a provider that accepts my insurance, and they accept a lot and more. Bilingual speakers, and careful on listening to your desires within Dentistry. 5 stars with no doubt.

Brian H. from San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


I have in the past had an extreme fear of dentists. Upon moving to San Antonio several years ago, my wife had to try very hard to convince me to come here. I will never go anywhere else now. I have had multiple crowns completed and they look and feel great. I have also had a couple of root canals and felt minimal pain–no missed work and no complications. I also think the cleanings here have been the best I’ve ever had. I could not be happier with the way I have been treated by the dentist and staff. I never hesitate to recommend them.

Anna L. V. from Pipers Meadow, San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


Such an amazing dental office! I went through 3 different offices before finding this one. They were the only ones who would work on me with my high dental anxiety. I am NOT an easy patient, but this office has found near to every way to make me comfortable. I’ve had a tremendous amount of NEEDED work done, and the prices are honestly spectacular. I’ve had countless appointments in the past 9 month time period, and I can honestly say they have become a big part of my life. If it weren’t for them, I would not have gotten the 13 years of dental care I needed. Thank you Dr. Vela for accommodating me to be as comfortable as possible in the office. Thank you to the front staff for always being as kind as possible. Lastly, thank you Dr. Ray for continuing to work with me at every appointment even when I’m being difficult. If you need a dentist, this is the one to choose. Any negative ratings you rarely see on this office are highly inaccurate…

Anna Martin (Source: Google)


GREATEST EXPERIENCE EVER!! From day one Dr. Vela and his staff (front and back) have been extremely professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. However, my crown experience has been the best!! No residual pain, able to bite and eat with comfort right away,. Didn’t even need numbing for the crown install. Every assistant I’ve had has been extremely thorough, and detailed, doing everything possible to ensure I’m comfortable, and receiving the best care. This time I had Anna, she took her time and didn’t stop until we were both happy. They even made two molds of my tooth, and allowed me choice of which I liked better! And the crown is perfect! A perfect match!! My smile continues to be one of my best features!! THANK YOU All Smiles Dental!

Andrea P. from San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


I was greeted as soon as I walked into the office. It was beautiful in there, complimentary water or coffee. Nice TVs in the waiting area with nice comfortable chairs. All the staff that I encounter during my visit were pleasant and friendly. It was my first visit and I actually got a tour of the office before being brought back to my exam room. There is a TV in every room as well. I hate going to the dentist so having a tv kept my mind off of the exam and cleaning. And for my first visit there I got a Welcome gift! Can you say impressed?! I give All Smiles a thumbs up and five stars!!

Abby W. from New Braunfels, TX (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to this place by a friend because of their hospitality. I was hesitant to go since I live in New Braunfels and it was a drive, but they did not disappoint me. First off, I was the very last appointment of the day, (they stay late on Tuesdays) which worked amazing with my schedule. I ended up being a little late to the appointment, but they still greeted me with a huge smile, and I never felt rushed. They gave me a tour of the office, a nice little gift, and they were all so very friendly. They stayed later just to meet all my needs, and even went above and beyond, giving me some pricing and services that I didn’t request over the phone. They made me feel welcome and I will definitely go back. They have a loyal customer in me.

Audrey Ochoa Gonzalez (Source: Facebook)


I have been a patient of All Smiles since the beginning and always highly recommend them to friends and family. I appreciate how they know patients are busy and have minimal wait time and Saturday appointments. The hygienists are helpful, friendly, and thorough. Dr. Vela truly cares about his patients and uses his expertise and skill to keep my smile healthy.

Joe Closner (Source: Google)


I can’t say enough about the staff at All Smiles Dental, we’ve had a relationship with them for the last 3 years! They have always been helpful and professional with all our kids, we have 7 kids and they always take care of all our dental needs. They even go above and beyond of what I would expect from a dental office. They open their doors early for us and to top it off it’s always on a weekend, Saturday’s always smiling and making the kids feel comfortable to the point that the kids are always excited to go to the dentist! Now that’s remarkable! Thank you All Smiles Dental for all that you do, you have always been a blessing to our family!

John A. from San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


I accidentally broke my front tooth on Sunday, 6/10/2016…I called Dr De La Rosa and he immediately arranged for Dr Vela to see me as he was out of town once he assessed my condition. Upon putting me in Dr Vela’s caring and most competent hands, he immediately went to work with his entire staff to prepare a set of temporary teeth while I waited 2 weeks for my permanent crowns to be made. I have to tell you that Dr Bob, Dr David, Pat, Stephanie, Patrick, Sandra and Sam treated me so well during the entire process. In fact, even Victoria their High School Intern Observer was friendly too. I was most certainly in great and tender hands during the entire process. Many thanks again for your professionalism…I am very happy with the results. My teeth look even better than before I broke my teeth 2 weeks ago. If you need Dental Care no matter how large or small, this is the place to go!!! Thank you so much!!!
