I barley do internet review. Got here through my dental insurance. The staff is always nice and helpful. Love my dentist!! Dr. Lising brought in a specialist to work on my crown while she administering it to make sure I have the best treatment. They’re the best and I feel like I’m never rushed. They sure know how to make you feel special!! Lots of personal attention and couterous people. Don’t see that much around these days. The company offers financing as well. The hours are pretty flexible. Like 730 on Fridays. Waiting for my Cerec to be done as we speak. Their top notch technology let me know I’m in great hands!!! Thanks my dental team!!! You should come here if you’re looking for a great dental service. The great thing about Smiles Generation is they’re a big company, lots of capital so their staff is always receive up to date training and state of the art equipment! And no I don’t work here.

I was so worried about going to the dentist after many years of neglecting my dental health. I saw Dr. Janice Lising and she was AMAZING. She was so kind and professional. She helped me understand what my dental issues are and how to improve my dental hygiene. She has excellent bedside manner and made me comfortable despite my anxiety. She is the BEST. I’ll be back every six months from now on! Thank you Dr. Janice Lising!!!

I would highly recommend Dr Lising and the team. I’ve worked with Briargrove for around a year now, they are very friendly and their work has been amazing. My schedule can be hectic sometimes but the team have always worked with me and helped me get the care that I need. Again, I can’t recommend the team highly enough.

This was the BEST dental office I’ve ever been to, I’m not exaggerating! I went in because of extreme tooth pain I was having. They booked me for the end of the day which was perfect for me. I was so happy because I had no luck in my primary dental office. When I got there, I was assisted right away and I had to have a tooth extraction. In previous experiences at other dental offices, I would go in with pain and if I needed an extraction, I would be asked to come again the next day for the extraction. So I would be sent home with pain and my problem not resolved. However, in this place, as late in the day as it was (it was close to 6pm and they close at 7) the dentist really wanted to help me and wanted to do the extraction right away. I was so happy. Before the procedure, I was told step-by-step everything that needed to be done in my mouth and everything was explained. Afterwards, a kind woman came in to talk to me about the prices. She helped me so much and was sensitive to my financial situation. I got the extraction done, it was quick and painless. The dentist assistant was also chatting with me the whole time, she was very kind. I’ve already recommended this dental office. I rarely ever write reviews, but this place truly earned it. I made them my primary dental office already.

If you are looking for a compassionate dentist who really cares for your well being, look no further than Dr. Lising and the team at Briargrove Smiles Dentistry. This office is the best kept secret in the Galleria area. Dr. Lising did a CEREC crown on me 5 years ago. I have never had any complications with the tooth after her work. She was quick and walked me through everything she was doing during the procedure which helped calm my nerves. Additionally her support staff is equally as awesome. Brenda, Maria, Chasity, Hugo and her other doctors are all amazing. Check them out if you are looking to establish yourself with a new dentist. Highly recommended!!!

Mary S. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


This place is full of friendly, honest, and helpful employees. They take great care of you. After our traumatizing experience at a different dentist my husband felt immediately at ease walking thru this dental office’s door. They are the best dentist office we have been to yet! To have my husband excited and happy about going to the dentist after his entire life hating the dentist says a lot about this business. Their bedside manner is great. The rooms are private. They let us stay with each other in the exam room if we want to be together. The waiting room is private, comfortable, has plenty to read, tv to watch, water cooler, and a game section for the kids. Makes the wait by oneself not bad at all for whoever is getting work done or while you wait to be seen

Tiffaney G. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


So I’ve been contemplating on writing this review and I’ve finally decided to say how I feel. I read all the wonderful reviews on this location an decided to give it a try. I went in, had my initial appointment and I enjoyed the staff very much, however at the end of my appointment, I was given a breakdown for the suggested treatment and the total after insurance was still $6,000, no veneers, no braces… I was like wow, I thought that was what the insurance was for. I was offered a payment plan, but even it was wayyyyyyyyyy out of my budget. I was super disappointed and I haven’t been back because I felt like that was a total snow job for someone who just started working. No effort was made to try and break things down, this treatment and this payment. Just $6,000. No thanks.. I’ll keep looking. *****Update as of 03/26/15***** I have received an outreach phone call from the office, after they received my review. Alot of companies wouldn’t bother to contact you after a review, but I was pleasantly surprised to awake to an email from the office manager. Aaron Parrish,(OFFICE MANAGER) invited me back into the office to speak with me about my initial visit. Aaron spoke with me in depth and explained everything about my insurance and the pay structure to me in depth. We spoke about monthly payments and how they will be paid and he asked me if this would work with my budget. He made me feel at ease and didn’t make me feel bad for my lack of dental insurance knowledge. I appreciate him meeting with me and explaining the process step by step and even more so helping me come up with a dental budget that I am comfortable with and I can begin treatment as soon as next week. Aaron’s professional courtesy and kindness also that of Dr. Lising as well is greatly appreciated. Thank you Briargrove Smiles for all of you help

I loved my dental experience at Briargrove Smiles! Dr. Lising was so thorough and patient. She made sure all my questions are concerns were addressed. Emily and Hugo walked me through my insurance and made sure I understood my out of pocket before my treatment so there were no surprises. That’s happened to me before at another place so I’m so happy I found Dr. Lising’s office! Pretty office too and great location. Highly recommended

Esther Mazzarino (Source: Google)


Wow! What a great experience! Going to the dentist is definitely not my favorite thing to do but after my experience with Dr Lising and the team. From the minute I walked in, I was greeted with a warm welcome. Dr lising did a great job explaining what treatment was needed and why. I am so glad to have found my new family dentist.

A S. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


Five stars all the way! These women are professional kind honest and good at what they do! I did my research before choosing this office and waited for the right time and had no doubts in my mind that they would be everything that a dentist office is supposed to be. All the ladies that worked with me explained everything they would do before they did it in an informative and helpful way and it was greatly appreciated since I have a measure of anxiety too handle in situations like these ie someone Drilling and scraping metal picks in my mouth LOL. I actually cannot wait to return here so that I can get my teeth to proper health and appearance. I would suggest that anyone who could, give this office your business and you will not be disappointed rather you’ll be greatly satisfied and in good hands.

Donna H. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I have nothing but good things to say about my experience here. Dr. Lising is professional, friendly, and very thorough. She took the time to go over my x-rays in detail and put me at ease about my treatment plan. Jennifer was also extremely nice and did a great job at performing the extensive cleaning I needed. The entire office staff was very courteous, professional, and helpful. The office itself is very modern and welcoming. Thumbs up all around!!

Kirsten H. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough positive things about Briargrove! Janice is simply amazing. I’ve come here for several appointments ranging from cleanings, cavities, root canal and even wisdom teeth removal. My teeth were not in the best condition but after seeing Janice and her team of professionals my teeth are better than ever. The staff is extremely helpful and kind as well. Let’s just say I’m not afraid of the dentist anymore 🙂

Michael C. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


My wife and I were dreading going to the dentist after having not been to one for so long, and its hard to find good offices. I found this place on my first go on yelp, and the reviews are all correct. Here, everyone is extremely friendly and nice to talk with. I felt in good hands, everyone seemed knowledgeable and the technology was the latest and greatest. Props to the dental hygienist for doing such a great job. We will be returning regularly. Best dentist ever!

Tlove L. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I am so in love with this crew! From the warm welcome of Anthony at the front desk, to the beginning consultation with Dr. Janice and then to Xrays by Corrina and I will not forget Ms. Jennifer!! I WAS terrified of dentists and all associated with this visit but boy has that changed! I was taken care of promptly. I was so very pleased with the work performed and most of all NO PAIN!!! I have a few more appointments and can’t wait until the end results. My husbandd and I will be renewing our vows in April 2015 and I can’t wait to smile for our photos and not be ashamed anymore!! Thanks guys, I have totally regained my full confidence back!!

Blanca A. from Katy, TX (Source: Yelp)


If I could give them double the stars I totally would! They deserve them. Everything about my experience was the awesome! I just wish I had found them sooner. I was referred by a co-worker and the place is in a fantastic location close to Galleria. From the initial phone call with Anthony everything was pleasant, I received an email within minutes to fill out my medical history online. Once I got there there were electronic signatures and I was in the x-ray room within a few minutes. There I met Brenda Karina, she’s awesome and did some very detailed x-rays and then took me to a room, they are all so nice! Didn’t have to wait at all and Dr. Janice came in, she was just as pleasant. She explained everything in great detail! I did not feel rushed at all and the whole experience was just the best ever. I can say that I won’t miss any dentist appointments anymore! I also didn’t feel like they were wanting to do more dental work than necessary. I give this place a thumbs up!!! All the way. I will be referring to all my co-workers, family and friends.

Zachary B. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


Updated review: left my first 5 star review 2 years ago, and I’m happy to report that it’s still 5 stars. The entire staff here is caring, professional, courteous, and efficient. I never really loved going to the dentist very much, but the dentists (Dr. Lising especially amongst them), hygienists, and assistants are always very concerned for my comfort and well-being. Treatment options are always explained and they always take the time to answer questions. They always tell me about the cost up front. I always leave feeling taken care of and respected. Highly recommend.

After countless amounts of horrible and traumatizing dental experiences, I spent years avoiding the dentist at all costs. Finally I couldn’t take the pain from a nasty toothache and found Briargrove Smiles near my office. I expressed to the staff that I had awful experiences and was terrified *sounds silly – I know* but they were all very understanding and made me feel comfortable. 5+ years later, I still visit Briargrove Smiles for all of my dental work. I’ve had extractions done, a root canal, fillings, crowns, and routine cleanings, all pain free. Facility is very clean. Appointments are flexible and payment plans are available. I would recommend Briargrove Smiles to anyone that is looking for a good dentist/hygienists.

This is the BEST Dental office I have ever been to. I would bet my bottom dollar on it! Dr. Lising is OUTSTANDING! She takes pride in what she does and delivers nothing but QUALITY dental care. My teeth are the healthiest they have ever been. Dr. Pierce is no exception. I have also been examined by her and she also had me leaving with a smile. The hygienist are very thorough and explain what they are doing during the whole cleaning. The dental assistants are all very hard working, detailed, friendly and professional. I can’t thank them enough. If you’re looking for quality dental health and hygiene. Search no more.

Brandon S. from Katy, TX (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely hate going to the dentist, but Dr.Lising and the dental assistant that helped were AWESOME! I had to get a few cavities filled on my front teeth and didn’t want to spend a fortune and Dr.Lising worked with me with some prices! I have a ongoing treatment plan and I’ll get back in there soon, but I wont go anywhere else because this office was so awesome with everything from making my appointment, to checking me in, to x-rays and the exam. not to mention they are very tech-savvy with the pen-pads in the room for you to sign and the television you can watch while doing treatment! I would recommend Dr.Lising and her staff to anyone who asks!

Rajoshi B. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Undoubtedly 5star. Extremely professional staff and team of dentist. Dr. Lising is super nice and very good at her job. Everyone was very caring of my financial situation as a grad student with no dental insurance. As per my wish they only did the minimum possible treatment. The full x-ray was free!!! And one molar filling cost me $140 out of pocket, without any insurance- unbelievable compared to all other dentist’s office who were going to charge upwards of $250. I highly recommend this place. They are also very quick, the whole treatment took hardly any time, never had to wait. I am getting a dental insurance next year and this will be my go to place for any tooth related problems

Reem Abbas (Source: Facebook)


All I have to say is that I had an amazing experience! Dr. Janice was extremely sweet and patient as well as Jennifer and Maria, definitely recommend. They really welcome you right in and make sure you’re satisfied.

Toni Ussary (Source: Google)


Dr. Lising and the entire staff are amazing! I have always been provided with exceptional patient/dental care. It is always very apparent that Dr Lising truly cares about me as a patient and as an individual. This office offers state of the art technology and you are even able to get a crown same day! If out of pocket cost is a concern for you, the team is always willing to do everything they can, to help set up financial arrangements so you are able to budget out your payments and still get the treatment that you need. You will have no regrets making Briargrove your dental office.

My husband was in severe pain. I had to find emergency treatment. Our usual provider location did not have an availability but wanted to help. I believe it was a rep Donnell that helped by referring us to Dr. Lising’s office and that was the best decision made that day. I was given good directions and we were welcomed right away. Office was also following social distancing protocol. I realized it was Dr. Lising herself that helped great and assist us with check in. Our experience during treatment and after with the doctor and staff was impressive and very pleasant. My questions were answered and we both felt at ease with our visit. We feel that as long as the overall atmosphere continues, we will continue to visit this new location even if availability comes up with our previous smile dentistry location.

J.R.A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a great experience! I hadn’t been to the dentist in 2 years so I was pretty nervous, but I was even greeted by Dr. Lising in the lobby. What doctor does that?! So nice! The whole experience was great…xrays w/Lupe were a breeze, and Dr. Lising was just so easy to connect with. Luckily no cavities but she did express the importance of keeping my visits regular…definitely coming back! Monica, the hygienist, was probably the most thorough hygienist I’ve ever had. So attentive and kept it real with me….floss people! Chasity and Emily up front worked my insurance and I just couldn’t believe how seamless the experience was. Thank you 🙂

Reem A. from Westside, Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


While searching for a new dentist to go to, I ran across this place and let me just say that I fell in love!!!! Dr. Janice was so sweet and extremely informative. Janice went into details about everything that was done and why, Janice was patient and makes sure everything is right. All the workers there are so sweet. They really welcome you right in and make sure you’re satisfied.

Kevin D. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


Everyone in the office was terrific. Dr. Lising greeted me within a few minutes to get an idea of what I wanted and then it happened! Emily went over the treatment options with me and when she found out I had no insurance, Dr. Lising and her worked with me to fit what I needed into my budget. In about 2 1/2 hours, I had full mouth X-Rays done by Corina, I had all of my old silver fillings replaced, a crown called Cerec, done in the office and put on a rear tooth, a couple of fillings replaced on my front teeth, and a scaling and deep cleaning done by Eddy. Dr. Lising also did a great job with the injections as she first applied a topical and then shook the area she was injecting so I felt very little discomfort. The whole staff was great and the office was extremely clean, modern, and comfortable. My name is Kevin Daniels and my # is 619 517-8151 if you want to double check that my recommendation is real.

Tonya M. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


This is a review is only in reference to calling to make an appointment. The process was very simple and the ladies who answered the phones were so nice. I had to call 3 times in order to get the log in information correct for the new patient paperwork, but for once I did not seem like I was bothering the worker because of issues that just happened to be on their end. I called at 3PM in the afternoon and what do you know, I have an appointment for tomorrow. Just from this experience I am very optimistic about my visit as I was previously with Castle Dental and every time you call you are placed on hold, them workers are rude, or the phones are just not answered. So far I am liking BSD but will give an update after my appointment

Dr. Janice Lising is absolutely amazing! My son (2 years old) and I both went in for services and I was super impressed by the cleanliness of the office, professionalism and kindness from the staff and Dr. Lising herself. They were thorough during the cleanings and icing on the cake is that they are super fast! My son was able to focus on the “strategically” placed distractions therefore barely making a peep. I have found a new practice to bring my entire family! Thank you Briargrove Smiles Dentistry!

In the four years that I’ve lived in Houston I have been going no where else other than Briargrove Smiles! Everything here is 10/10 from the team, the service, the cleanliness, and even the parking (cause let’s face it, parking is important!!). I would recommend BSD to anyone and I will never go anywhere else!! Dr. Janice Lising is my girl!!! Love you!

Vicki L. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Janice Lising is excellent, listens to my concerns and I have confidence in her recommendations. Jennifer Garcia, the hygienist, is also wonderful and takes great care with my sensitive teeth. Both are very friendly while efficient. They do have advanced technology here which I think reduces discomfort, and my teeth/mouth feel very good and clean when I leave. This is one of the few dental offices where they make you feel like they actually care about your dental health and not about making a quick profit. I’m very glad we found them here in Houston.

Ted P. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


After experiencing a few underwhelming dental visits with other dentists in Houston, I am happy to say I have finally found a place that has met and exceeded my expectations. The office was very clean, quiet and organized. I actually arrived with incorrect insurance (medical was not the same as dental) but the people behind the desk quickly did some investigating to find the correct company that was covering me. I then had a short consult with the dentist to get a broad overview of my dentist health and history. This was followed up by x-rays that displayed results in real time so that I could get feedback immediately. A small high-quality camera was also used to capture a variety of images within my mouth. Pretty cool to see up close all possible angles of your teeth. I needed a crown to cover a tooth that had undergone a root canal. There was this unbelievable 3D imaging technology (cerec) that allowed for a perfect fitting crown to be crafted in about 30 minutes. So instead of having to schedule multiple appointments, the crown was put in the same day in a very small amount of time. I had also had some deep cleaning with some laser treatment to help out with some gingivitis which also went very well. Overall, everything went very smoothly and the dentist and staff were happy to answer the multitude of questions that I inundated them with. I actually did quite a bit of research to find this place as my last experience taught me that it is very worth taking the time to call ahead and ask the right questions. These are the questions I asked: Question: What type of material do you use for fillings? Expected Answer: Most modern places use a composite and not almagam Question: How long does scaling in root planing take? Expected Answer: My last dentist did my whole mouth in 15 minutes (which is a joke). It should take significantly longer (up to 30 to 45 minutes per quadrant) Question: What type of machines (xray in particular) do you have? Expected Answer: They should have new machines (younger than 10 years) that use a fraction of the radiation as the old machines. There are lots more questions of course to ask but these should weed out the bad dentists. I also look at the exterior (google maps) and the website. All together you should have enough info to make the right decision. It seemed to help me!

Laura M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


The place is well organized. Very professional and clean environment. I will return. I was originally told by my last dentist (at another location) that I had 8 cavities. Which shocked me (because I take care of my teeth). I was told here I had no cavities. Which I think is correct. Every step was explained and I was provided with several options for care. I recommend this place.

Dr. Janice Lising is amazing and so is her staff. The week of my wedding she was able to squeeze me in on late notice for a teeth whitening. As someone with sensitive teeth not only were my teeth just fine, but super white and I received many compliments. Couldn’t stop smiling for days. Thank y’all!

Emily Jennings (Source: Google)


The greatest service and the most talented staff. I’ve had major dental work done and would give my greatest endorsement for this location. Everyone is very professional, and treat each patient with extra care. I never have pain even with crown work. I can’t say enough about this place. I’ve lived in the dental chair all my life and been around the world. If you want to keep a clean youthful set of teeth and great gum health…then come here!!

Likeythia B. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a client at BriargroveSmiles for a year, and I must say that I’m impressed with the service, products, and the staff. As of yesterday, I completed some work that literally brought tears to my eyes because of the quality of the service and the compassion expressed to me by Dr. Lising and her staff. At times, dental work can be intimidating, but they’ve been so very supportive of me since day one! Briargrove Smiles is really a great place for dental needs–especially because dental needs are very personal and can be a very big deal! Dr. Lising and her staff have the necessary empathy and compassion, and will even celebrate with you!!!
