Muy buen servicio, muy  amables, profecionales y justos con los precios, ademas de eso la Dr Nguyen es muy honesta, ya habia consultado con dos dentistas que me dijeron que necesitaba root canal y corona, ($2,000) y la doctora me dijo que con un simple empaste era suficiente. No solo te cuidan tu sonrisa, si no tambien tu dinero. : )

This dental office is awesome! Right when you walk in, the lobby area has entertainment for kids and you fill out your paperwork on an iPad! So very tech savvy/efficient & environmentally friendly. Dr. Nguyen has helped me straighten out my teeth with braces! I had an underbite and now it’s all fixed! She’s very easy to talk to, and she really cares about her patients. Highly recommend this practice. They accept all types of insurances as well, so don’t hesistate to call & check if they accept yours!

They’re great!! I’ve been here plenty of times over the years for myself and my son with and without insurance. Their self pay prices are reasonable. They also don’t do extra stuff just to get money out of your insurance or you like other dental places. I absolutely recommend them all the time to family and friends.

Incredible experience from start to finish. As nervous as I am during the height of the pandemic, Centra Dental took extra measures to ensure the safety of their staff and patients. From waiting in the car to the staff in full head to toe PPE and sanitizing station every where you turn. Overall, I felt safe going in for my treatment. Dr. Nguyen is highly professional, she takes great care of her patients and pride in her work.

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


My son has been coming here for a couple of years now. Since he got his braces, he’s never complained about pain or discomfort. The staff is awesome, they explain everything thoroughly and if you look confused they’ll explain again. I like that the same dentist has followed him throughout this whole ordeal. The office is always clean and very well organized. Thank you Centra Dental!!! I’ll post before and after pics next month.

I love this place. Dr. Nguyen is really nice and patient. I always have a lot of questions about my teeth because they’re very sensitive. She has great recommendations for me about what to use and is always prepping me for my next visit. The staff is really friendly and I always feel very welcome. Their wait time was short, especially since I hate waiting, and they also have wifi (which is cool). It’s a win-win for me. I’ll be seeing her for my regular check-ups!

I came to Centra Dental due to a dental emergency and I will def come back for future services. The office was clean and all necessary precautions (due to covid) were taken to make me feel comfortable about my appointment. Dr Natasha was very nice and informative about helping me understand my options. She even asked Dr. Kathy to come give me her professional opinion as well. I am so glad they were able to see me and I will def come back for all my dental needs.

I’ve been need a cleaning for quite some time, but didn’t get to schedule anything because of COVID. I finally got the courage to make an appointment with Dr. Nguyen and let me know tell you, her office was the cleanest! I think they had the best procedures on ensuring their patients that they will be safe from COVID – from entering the office, giving us shoe covers, taking your temperature, and oxygen levels. If anyone else is scared to see the dentist during these times, I would definitely recommend Centra.

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


I’ve been looking for a dentist that was close to my work, Dr. Nguyen was recommended to me by a co-worker. First thing I noticed was how clean and modern the office looked. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and offered me refreshments which made me feel really welcomed. My wait time was less than 10 mins after stepping inside, definite plus when it comes to any medical visit. The fees were My overall experience was awesome and I definitely will be coming back!

Harrison N. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I am not a texas resident and recently moved here to Houston. I’ve been searching for a routine dentist and this is it. The establishment is modern and clean. The staff is fast, efficient, and welcoming. Dr. Nguyen was extremely kind and informative during my visit. They truly listen to your problems and address them accordingly. I am more than pleased with my first visit and I will most definitely schedule with Centra Dental again.

The customer service that they offer is just amazing , coming here during this pandemic make it a bit scare cause off the news , but they sure make sure that they take all precautions necessary to ensure you feel safe … from the people in the front to the dentist and assistant are just great ! I will never change my dentist!!

Kelly T. from Sugar Land, TX (Source: Yelp)


My parents and I really enjoyed our visit to the dentist this time around. This location was very clean and the wait time was fairly short. Dr. Nguyen and her staff are very organized and friendly, and she cleaned my teeth without any residual pain. She is much more gentle than most of the dentists I have been to/experienced. The wait area has iPads for the kids to play on, and there is free wifi! They always have a movie playing as well. They know how to keep their patients entertained and distracted while they do their job. I highly recommend this place!

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


Dr. Kathy and staff are the nicest Dental office I have ever visited. They are truly professional and made me feel very comfortable. I had a deep cleaning and 2 fillings and they were gentle but thorough.  They did a wonderful job. I was very pleased the pricing and payment options they had. I highly recommend this dental office.

Dr. Nguyen and her staff are top notch and very professional. The waiting time is quick and the girls are great at taking pictures. I always hate taking X-rays because they hurt but the dental assistants are very gentle. They have the state of the art equipment. Thank you Edit: It’s been a few years since I have been back to the dental office, but the office staff are still friendly and welcoming. I came I with my mom In law and baby and they were so accommodating to the both of us with the little one. We were able to get our teeth cleaned and exams done within a reasonable time frame. Dr. Nguyen is the nicest and very sweet. I love how they have the latest technologies. Thank guys for a great visit

I had a really great experience with Centra Dental. Upon arriving the staff greeted me with a warm welcome at the door. They were polite, sociable and actually made me feel as if I was at home hanging out with friends. They were also punctual with my appointment time. I arrived 10 minutes early because I knew I’d probably be doing some paperwork. It took me just 5 minutes to fill out the new patient forms and as soon as I was done they sent me in to see Dr. Nguyen. That was probably the biggest shock…actually starting my appointment on time. Every dental and doctor’s visit I’ve ever experienced prior to Centra has taken longer than expected. I’m a very punctual person and waiting around, wasting time is a huge pet peeve. The office itself was clean and tidy, another big plus in my book. And Dr.Nguyen couldn’t have been more pleasant. I can tell she is quite skilled and knowledgeable in her practice, which is important to me because I like to feel safe and that I can trust my dentist entirely. All in all the visit was one of the best I’ve ever had and I’ll definitely be coming back to Centra.

I always take my daughter to Dr Nguyen to get her check ups. The doctor is very good with kids and seems to care for her patients. She gives good advice and follows up. She may seem very young but don’t let her looks fool you, she is a very good dentist. I am very happy and will be coming back for years to come.

Great experience! It was my first time here. I chose this dentist because the location was convenient and all of the great reviews. Everyone was very polite and kind. They are taking the necessary COVID-19 precautions by offering shoe coverings and taking temperatures. They even gave me a mask at the end! Will definitely be back here.

Yesenia C. from Pasadena, TX (Source: Yelp)


I appreciate the professionalism and honesty that Dr. Nguyen showed. They were professional, they also obviously reviewed my concerns respectfully and made sure to answer all my questions and made sure that I was feeling comfortable at all times. It was pain free, relaxed, and not hurried at all.

Trung N. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


Wonderful dentist and wonderful staff. Can’t say enough about this group. Very caring and gentle. I would recommend this office to all my friends and family. There facility is state of the art, clean and lobby area has a T.V. so that you can be entertained while you are waiting to be called. Appointments were easy to schedule and they are very flexible to fit your schedule.

Best dental experience I’ve had! No one likes coming to the dentist but this place exceeded my expectations. I love how they make me feel comfortable. The staff are kind and professional. They are always upgrading equipment to the latest and greatest technology. Thier office is very clean, modern, and organized, it is worth the drive there. The wait is never long and they try to accommodate your every need. Definitely a dental office I will be staying with long term.

I brought my mom here for the 5 star reviews. They did not disappoint! First off, my mother’s English is not the best, every assistant there spoke Spanish and do did her dentist. I could not go in there with her and I hoped for the best. She came back telling me how wonderful and kind they were to her, the Dentist and every staff member she came across. That’s the best part is the way they treated her. They even went out of their way to find her a closer appointment date since she is from out of town. They called me to follow up with everything. As I waited outside I saw Dr. Nguyen pick up trash from the parking lot. That says a lot to me about her character! My mom also said it was incredibly clean in there. They take sanitizing very serious. So glad I came here. I’ll recommend anyone I can!

I just recently moved to Houston and I did my research on finding a nice dentist office and I loved the reviews I read about Central Dental online so I scheduled an appointment. The atmosphere was amazing and everyone was extremely nice and helpful. I definitely give it a 10/10. I can’t wait to go back.

Lanha T. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


You know a dentist is good when you willingly come back time after time. Conveniently located close to work and near beltway for my way home. The staff is extremely courteous and professional. Always available when you call to set up appointments and love how they handle all the insurance nuisances before you get there. The office is always clean and sterile with low wait time to be seen. I find I catch up on my Disney movies there since its playing on the tv during my cleanings. (awesome distraction) Dr. Nguyen is gentle and very detailed in her work. She is personable and answered any question I had. You never feel rushed when there. Without a doubt a great experience from when you walk in the door to when you walk out.

Muoi T. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


Highly recommend Centra Dental! The doctor and staff are all super friendly and professional. I had an appointment and came in for a check up. There was no wait time and I felt comfortable the whole time. They even made a night guard to fit specifically for my teeth. I will definitely come back and bring my family!

2 N. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


Great dental office! I’ve been going here for 2 years and I never dread going to the dentist anymore! They are gentile with teeth cleaning and once I had a cavity filled and I didn’t feel a thing! Not even the needle! Front staff is always welcoming when I enter. Haven’t had any issues with insurance billing or paperwork. The entire dental office is tidy, neat, and clean, which tells me that their utensils/tools are also clean!! I definitely recommend this place to anyone needing dental services!

Bianca V. from Humble, TX (Source: Yelp)


I recently visited Dr. Nguyen’s office. From the moment I walked in to the very last moment I left I was beyond pleased with the entire office. The front desk were very helpful with helping me fill out my paper work. The assistant was very gentle while taking X-Rays. The assistant asked me the reason for my visit I stated to her I was there because I knew I have cavities. Dr. Nguyen then came in and went over all the treatment with me I feel she explained everything super well. Dr. Nguyen was able to perform treatment on me the same day! I was in no pain at all I left out of the dental office knowing things I didn’t know about me teeth. I’m super happy I found Dr. Nguyen and she will forever be my dentist.

Let’s be honest, we all hate the dentist. This office is the picture of COVID-19 adaptability. They have installed air filters and suction vents in each operatory. The staff (although what looks to be hot and uncomfortable) stays in their protection equipment throughout the visit. The doctors are knowledgable and patient. My sons are a handful, but the staff at Centra treated them like family. Great place, highly recommended.

Carolyn Collier (Source: Google)


Dr. Kathy Nguyen and staff are awesome. They’re very good with my little girls. They were always scared of the previous dental experiences, but the staff treat them like responsible little patients. The girls listen, get X-rays, let the staff brush/floss/paint sealant/fluoride their teeth, etc. The team always thoroughly explains everything that is going to happen to the girls and us, parents. I appreciate their patience and dedication. Makes my life a lot easier! Thank you, Centra Dental!

Vincent P. from Westchase, Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


Came in for a teeth cleaning not to long ago and had a pleasant visit. Upon walking into Centra, the first thing you notice is the cleanness of the facility. The staff was very nice and welcoming. The equipment was up to date and all of the cleaning utensils looked sterilized. There is a large TV in each of the operating stations which was awesome cause I hate looking at my dentist the whole time. Overall a very pleasant experience and will definitely recommend them to my colleagues.

My husband and I visited Centra Dental for an annual check-up.  It was both our first time at Centra Dental, which was recommended to us by friends.  Dr. Kathy Nguyen worked on both my husband and me.  She told me that I had 4 cavities (EEK!!) and proceeded to fill those cavities.  Dr. Nguyen explained the situation clearly and communicated her procedures as she was working on me, which I appreciated.  I was slightly nervous when she had to numb part of my mouth, but to my surprise, I didn’t even feel the needle injection at all.  Dr. Nguyen spent ample time filing my cavities and cleaning my teeth and I didn’t feel rushed at all.  I appreciate the fact that she spends quality time on each patient and gives each patient the attention they deserve.  She even showed me the correct way of brushing my teeth and flossing.  You don’t get that level of attention and service from many dentists these days.  Dr. Nguyen was extremely professional, knowledgeable and very attentive to her patient’s comfort.  Likewise, her staff (dental and office assistants) were all very polite and conducted themselves professionally.  I was also impressed by the equipment used, which seemed new and up-to-date.  Going to the dentist office is usually not a pleasant visit, but Centra Dental was able to make us feel comfortable and at ease.  I will definitely come back for my next visit and recommend her to everyone.

Very kind, patient and family oriented! She was extremely honest and saved my daughter the trouble of going through unnecessary procedures that were recommended by my former dentist. My children enjoyed the experience and so did I. I also love that I missed my appointment and space was made for us the same day.

I took my 6 month old today for her first dental check-up. As a new patient, I felt that Centra Dental has VERY nice and friendly staff. It was a quick visit, and I didn’t have to spend a lot of time in the waiting room. My daughter was born with teeth, and the Dentist was able to give me information after the x-rays were taken, that the teeth she was born with are most likely her baby teeth, & are really loose. I look forward to bringing my daughter back in 3 months! Thank you Centra Dental for caring for my daughter!
