Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Shante' H. from Greenway/Upper Kirby, Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I have been a patient of Dr. Moukarim’s for going on ten years. During this time, Dr. Moukarim has proven that he is very knowledgeable about dentistry and takes the time to share this knowledge with patients and staff. Along with being personable and having a great personality, he is a perfectionist who takes pride in his work. This builds the confidence and trust that I have in his ability to do great dental work. The staff is also amazing. Each staff member has always provided great customer service on each visit. I will continue to choose Dr. Moukarim and Dental Illusions for my dental needs as well as recommend the office to anyone seeking a new dental family that provides great service and is always professional.

I understand that we all are is some type of business, that we make a living from something. Nevertheless, having a human touch or caring about what we do goes a long way. That’s what I felt when I came to Dental Illusions, I felt that they cared about me. Even from the moment I called to set up an appointment I noticed the difference between this clinic and the others I visited before. They explained me with details the treatment that I needed and how much my insurance would pay. The clinic is extremely clean and the best part is the staff. Michael in the front office, Becky and Dr. Moukarim are amazing! I’m glad I came to this clinic.

I am extremely happy with Dr Moukarim and all his staff. I have been a patient of him for several years now. He always makes sure you feel comfortable and calm , and explains in detail beforehand any kind of procedure . What I also really like is his concern with all patients as he always follows up personally after a procedure to make sure you are not having any further discomfort or any questions. Dr Moukarim is a wonderful professional that takes pride in his true vocation as a dentist. I would highly recommend Dr Moukarim!

★★★★★

Dr Moukarim and his staff are amazing. I have been a patient of Dr. Moukarim for 11 years and I couldn’t be happier. Dr Moukarim always explains any procedure beforehand and makes sure you feel comfortable at all times. One of the other aspects I really like about him is that he personally follows up with you after a procedure to make sure you are ok. Excellent human approach from him and all the staff in every single visit. I highly recommend Dental Illusions.

Outstanding service and safety measures during COVID times. I’ve been coming to Dental Illusions for about a year now and really enjoy it/highly recommend. My most recent appointment was this week (Aug 2020) and I felt safe with all the additional measures they’ve taken during the virus. Dr. Moukarim is great!

Mario V. from Washington Corridor, Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

First off I would like to thank the team at Dental Illusions for taking such good care of me. The office manager Mychel was really nice and mad sure I was informed and kept me up to date about my procedure. Dr Moukarim and his assistant (forgot her name)did an excellent job extracting my wisdom teeth I honestly didn’t feel a thing. Thank you to the whole team at Dental Illusions for taking such good care of me. Dental Illusions is second to none in my book!!!

★★★★★

I had Anita clean my teeth this week. She was great. I was thinking about someone checking my mouth (teeth and gums) for any signs of cancer. I didn’t have to ask, that is part of what she does. She did probably the best job of cleaning than I have had in many years. I have been going to Dental Illusions a long time. They are great.

★★★★★

This was my first dental appointment since COVID-19. I felt very safe and they were taking all of the precautions. Temperature at the door, survey, masks on, no one in the waiting room, partitions, air purifier next to the chair, wiped down googles before they gave them to you. They even adjusted practice so that you didn’t walk around the clinic to go get X-ray. They did the X-ray in your exam room. The cleaning was all done by hand to avoid aerosolization. I felt they were doing a great job during this difficult time.

★★★★★

This was the best experience. I had a procedure that took 10 months. Each appointment I was welcomed to the office. Dr. Basil staff was fabulous. Michael and Becky got me through it all. I left today and the processes is over. What great results. I look forward to my cleaning just to revisit with this team. Thanks for everything.

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

★★★★★

This is my first review for a dental office but both times I’ve been there has been very pleasant. I like Debbie. She is gentle yet very effective and most importantly she used the suction tool often. I hate having extra saliva in my mouth..she told me the areas I should work on but she wasn’t lecturing or judging in anyway. I definitely would go to her again.

Mrs V. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

We are new patients. Both my husband and I have had poor experiences at other dentists, so we have been looking around for awhile. We had cleanings and fillings done at West U Family Dental. They are prompt, efficient, good prices, accept insurance, courteous with a personal touch, and have clients such as the Houston Texans. My husband was so comfortable that he fell asleep during his cleaning. There was only slight discomfort when I had my fillings, and a few hours later I went to the gym and had a nice family dinner outing. Thank God we found great dentists and great hygenists!

★★★★★

I’ve been using Dental Illusions services for about 12 years now and I’ve always received the best service and great dental work. The staff from the admin. staff to the dental staff are very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable with all of the questions that I always have for them. I highly recommend Dental Illusions as your new dental provider or if you’ve been looking for a change.

★★★★★

My husband and I have been going to Dental Illusions for over 2 years now and we love it here! Dr Moukarim and his staff are wonderful. Apart from the exceptional dental care they provide, they are also very personable. Mychael and Becky are so friendly and helpful with any of my questions or concerns. Going to the dentist can be an annoyance or intimidating but I can honestly say my experience at Dental Illusions has been quite the opposite.

★★★★★

Dr. Moukarim has always been outstanding with regards to his dental work, his dedication to explain exactly what he will be doing with any options you may have and his overall chairside manner. The office atmosphere is great and the staff is very attentive to any patient needs. Fantastic overall experience.

★★★★★

I have always been invested in my dental care. From a young age, I got cleanings twice a year and was diligent to extend that practice into adulthood. As a kid, I had a great family dentist and when they retired, I was scared to find a new one. Enter Dr. Moukarim and his great team! My dental hygienist, Ms. K, is friendly and diligent. The front office staff, Mykal (Michael), is so helpful and exceedingly kind. Additionally, the office has great hours! I’m usually able to get my cleanings at 6:30A, before work. That’s such a help. I am grateful to have found a great dentist and I recommend Dental Illusions to all my friends.

★★★★★

Excellent service and dentistry. I have been comming to this location since 2014 and cannot be any happier ( with the dental work). They are very friendly, professional and do great work. I have done a wide range of work here such as retainers made, teeth cleaned and crowns made. I reccomend Dr. Moukarim to friends and family. Keep the great work going!

★★★★★

In search for a dental care provider I had a vision what would be a perfect dental clinic for me. Knowing that my teeth need special attention, I need somebody who can provide individual plan for me in treatment and care. Before I found Dr. Moukarim’s dental practice I have tried a general franchise dental clinic and did not feel comfortable to stay there for conveyor belt treatment approach. Then, I read number of exceptional reviews about Dr. Moukarim’s practice. And after meeting him and his team I felt it for myself – I can rely on the doctor, who is providing tailored individual care and approach for treatments. Ms. Becky Silva is outstanding RDA, with Dr. Moukarim they are professional tandem who always make sure that treatment is comfortable, and best possible. Ms. Mychael Duffy is thorough and thoughtful business assistant, who is taking care of all insurance and appointments questions and beyond. They always have time to listen in all the questions and concerns I may have, and suggest the best options possible. I am happy with the care I am getting from Dr. Moukarim and his professional team, and recommending Dental Illusions clinic for anyone who is looking for outstanding personalized dental care.

Had an incredible experience today. Dr. Moukarim did my first ever root canal today and I was freaking out. Never felt a thing! Fantastic at what he does and has a phenomenal staff. His assistant Becky was fantastic and his hygienist Yuliya was also phenomenal! A lot more work to do but no longer have any issue going to the dentist will happily return and recommend. Dr. Moukarim and his team work wonders!

★★★★★

My mouth was saved by Dr Moukarim and Shante’. The price was reasonable and the Team of professional have always been amazingly friendly & helpful. I highly recommend Dental Illusions to anyone in need of dental work. Talk to Michael she will get you end for the services to save that smile! Dental Illusions FIVE STARS IN MY BOOK!

★★★★★

My name is ECBurrell. I have been a client at Dental Illusions for many years now and and i would like to encourage anyone to seek dental services with this team of professionals. The Dental Illusions Staff has always been knowledgeable and consistent, as well as, respectful of my time by going above and beyond to make your visit pleasurable. Again I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a really nice dental office. I can honestly say they gave me back my smile !

They were recommended to me by a coworker and its the best recommendation I’ve had. Dr.Mikarum(probably spelled it wrong lol) is amazing. He answers all of my questions, makes sure that I’m comfortable and does a great job on my teeth. Michael along with the other staff is so helpful, sweet and professional. Highly recommend them!!

★★★★★

I’ve been using Dental Illusions for nearly 9 years and love them! Everyone on staff is friendly and professional, beyond any other service provider I’ve used. Last year I tried a new dental practice closer to my new home (the only reason I tried them), and it was a terrible experience. I came back to Dr. Moukarim and plan on using him and his team for as long as I live in Houston.

★★★★★

Dr. Moukarim and crew are always the utmost professional and personal in providing great dental care. My wife and I have been patients for many years, and we always feel we get supreme service for everything from cleanings to other dental needs. Michael in the front office is very friendly and makes sure you have the information you need (especially timely reminders of you appointment). COVID-19 may have slowed them down temporarily, but we both felt they were very much on top of the game in dealing with the “new normal”, still providing the best of service while making the office secure. Always top-notch, but now even more so.

★★★★★

Flawless experience overall. Dr. Moukarim did a great job advising me on the best treatment plan and took all the time to answer all my questions and make me at ease. The staff was very accommodating and professional. They helped me sort out all aspects of my insurance and getting me in and out on time. Happy to report my procedure went beautifully well, minimal discomfort or pain, and I’m back to my winning smile.

This was the first time I’ve been to a dentist in about 5 years. I had an appointment today for a routine check up/teeth cleaning and I can not be more satisfied. The staff there is SUPER friendly and easy to talk to. The environment was comfortable and relaxed. I briefly met with one of the dentists and he was very kind and friendly as well. I know how important reviews are in determining which dentist to go to so that is why I am writing this one. I would definitely recommend this place 🙂

★★★★★

Dr. Moukarim, Beckie, Mychael and team are 5-star! I’ve chosen this dental office for almost 10 years. Even though I moved to the suburbs, I chose to make the trip into town for my appointments. They treat me professionally AND like family – that’s hard to do. In regard to the Covid threat, the office is VERY cautious and clean and has every safeguard in place for extremely low risk appointments/interactions. I’m so thankful and very happy to recommend!

★★★★★

I was so pressed with the Precautions Dr. Makarim, Mychael, Becky and Brittany took before my visit and during. They are going out of their way to protect those of us who could not wait for dental work. I worked in hospital quality for 30 years, this is a safe place if you need dental work. Dr. Makarim explains everything in such detail and the entire team works together in a way that you feel confident you are in a high quality setting. Thank you!!

Damian D. from Spring, TX (Source: Yelp)

If you’re looking for a new dentist, look no further, these are the people to go to! They make going to the dentist a trip to look forward to, I kid you not. I’ve been going there for years, and recommend them to all of my friends, my entire family now drives into town to go there. Even since I have moved out of state, I prefer to fly back to Houston to get treatment as well! Everyone at this practice is incredibly professional, super friendly, and very caring about your comfort. They are also dedicated to getting you the treatment that you need done right. If you are having problems with your teeth, they conservatively develop a treatment plan which will preserve your natural teeth as much as possible. Whenever I’ve had emergency painful situations, they have always strived to work me into their schedule ASAP. After many years of struggling to find a consistently good dentist, it’s incredibly refreshing to find a practice of such great people.

Excellent staff!!! Very professional. Dr Makarim is very compassionate I am in the process of having extensive dental work. Every procedure has been explained to me. I suffer from dental anxiety. I was accompanied for my anxiety. Zero wait time I have been to several dentist in the past however I have never felt the comfort I encounter at this office.

★★★★★

I’ve been a patient of Dental Illusions since 2009. My view of dentistry was significantly changed by Dr. Moukarim’s professionalism, demeanor and sense of humor. I’m always pleased with him and his staff, and I’ve learned a new respect for what a top-notch dentist can do to make a person’s life better with an amazing smile. My thanks to them for all they do!

11/15/20 update: all the below is still true AND the staff have been committed to getting patients the care and dental cleanings needed safely through COVID. I have been to the office 3 times for a cleaning and 2 retainers. I’ve seen the pen I used at the front desk sanitized immediately, have never passed a non staff member in the office or waiting room and they have made some other changes with xrays and tools to limit the number of surfaces that would be contacted. You are safe in their hands. I have been to Dental Illusions for 3-4 cleanings over the last 2 years, and had my first procedure this morning. For those of you that are skimming, the overall summary of the below is that the staff is super friendly and professional, Dr. Moukarim is excellent at what he does and I highly recommend you try them out. This is the first dentist that I would actually be sad to have to leave and one that i have personally recommended to my coworkers. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt like i could say this is “my” dentist. You only see Dr. Moukarim briefly after routine cleanings and he is friendly and chats with you and has my type of humor! Today I got some quality chair time with him for a cavity and a redo of an old filling next to it to make the teeth fit together better. As many people do i kind of psych myself out with needles/shots. Dr. Moukarim is so great I didn’t really feel anything! He has awesome chair-side manner and makes the whole process as stress free as possible. I have always had great service by everyone there. Since before my very first visit Michael was so sweet and went the extra mile to help me get my primary care dentist changed with my insurance prior to my appointment that was in a couple days. She has always been friendly and in a good mood. It’s hard to describe how she does it but talking with her about scheduling, insurance questions, and other very basic stuff she makes you feel like you are talking to a friend. The office waiting room is really nice and comfy but i’m never in there more than 5 min before i get called back. The dental techs are great with cleanings and get you in and out. During one cleaning I asked the tech about mouth wash, she gave me some advice on selecting something effective that wasn’t too strong and a sample. Most recently I mentioned I was having dry mouth and the tech provided samples of two rinse options that might help.
