New to the Houston area, I selected another dentist office prior to coming to Edge Dental and was HIGHLY disappointed, but I read the reviews about Edge dental and they were so good and the office is so close to my home that I decided to give it a try. I arrived to a clean state of the art dental office!!! I was greeted on the phone with a professional woman who was just as concerned about getting me in for my tooth malfunction!:; the entire staff from Chelsea to Dr. Lai were EXCEPTIONAL!!!  Although the work will be extensive, I FEEL SAFE and comfortable at EDGE DENTAL!!  I appreciate the quick response!

Dr. Justin Lai and his staff have been an absolute pleasure to meet and receive dental services through. Lorena is the office manager and has always been professional and greets everyone with a smile when coming into the office. I have been going to this dental office for almost 2years and have never had bad service. The office has always been very clean and the equipment looks brand new. With Covid-19 going on this is very important as a patient. I have recommended his office and services to family and friends that feel the same way.

Worked w dentist as a new patient relocating from Midwest. Office assistants were pleasant in providing assistance for finding dental insurance information so I could get taken care of via special seen online. Honoring online commitment and going above the call of duty to provide help is appreciated with being a newcomer to energy corridor area. Thanks.

Yes I’m giving my dentist a 5 star review!!  Normally I hate going to the dentist but I’ve been a patient for 18 months since my old dentist retired.  Every time Dr Lai and his staff have been kind!!  I have almost no pain with cleanings and same with my kids and husband.  Dr Lai has top of the line equipment and yes that matters with cleanings.  Love this practice and Dr Lai!!  See you in 6 months, I booked my returning appointment today!!

This dentist has changed my life!!! I have been wanting to fix my smile and was very afraid. He is very patient and he makes sure you are well informed of any procedures!! This is the best investment I’ve ever made. My confidence is their the roof right now and I’m only half way they my process and I see the difference. The staff is always nice as well! Thank you Dr. Lai and staff my whole family is in transition for their dental needs!! You guys rock!!!

It took a while to locate it with the memorial traffic and my gps not saying if it on the left or right but The square is noticable Reserved parking signs if you are going to see Dr. Justin Lai Very clean, modern looking waiting area. They have a portal for your appointments as well as text reminders (you have to opt in for the option). I filled out documents day of. The consent forms are very atraightforward. The staff is super nice. Honestly I have a lot of anxiety getting dental work of any sort done. I have a low threshold for pain, and sensitive teeth lol In the forms they ask if you are scared. It’s nice that they ask if you have anxiety, in not so many words. My appointment was quick given I have not had a proper cleaning in YEARS AND I had a cavity. I was done within an hour. Xrays are the standup kind that encircles you versus those things you clinch between your teeth. You have xrays prior to any work, or at least I did. I called in my appointment with the concern of my cavity. They open til 8pm on mon and tuesdays which is nice because Tuesday is my day off and otherwise I work afternoon/evening shifts or on Weekends and can’t go.

I decided to see a dentist for the first time in nearly four years (not because I’m neglectful, but student insurance doesn’t cover dental). I chose Dr. Lai’s office based on the reviews and the location. I made my appointment and they were able to accommodate my working hours. I walked in, verified my online paperwork, and then went back for x-rays. Dr. Lai was working with another patient and so I waited a little bit. Not terrible… maybe 15 minutes. Dr. Lai, as friendly as could be, examined my mouth, gave me a cleaning, and advised me of possible problems that he saw. Yay! No cavities or excessive plaque! He was kind and ever concerned with my comfort. Overall, an excellent experience.

It was my first time there. A great experience! All of the staff wore masks, even the receptionist, which I appreciate during these coVid times. Dr Lai and his hygienist Esther explained things to me in a clear manner throughout my visit. They were gentle and made sure I was comfortable. This is a clean, up- to- date facility with the latest technology and equipment!

Superior service from Lorena-scheduling and insurance verification to Esther-the dental hygienist to Dr. Lai the care is considerate, professional, and exceeds expectations every single time I go. All COVID-19 standards were met or exceeded. At no time did I feel at risk of exposure. Thank you all and will see you in February!! Okay-Edge and Dr. Lai are requesting a follow up review-he’s wonderful, great hours. I’ve been a patient since he opened and not planning on changing. If I ever move I am adopting him and taking him with me!

Tasha D. from Frisco, TX (Source: Yelp)


I just visited this new facility as the one in my office doesn’t accept my insurance anymore. I wasters just for a cleaning which went well and I really liked how the dr took pictures of my teeth and showed me. The only downside was the wait time. It wasn’t bad but I was spoiled where in my previous Clonic there was absolutely no wait time in the way they did scheduling to get employees in and out quickly!

Edge Dental is wonderful! So professional and friendly. And the place is SO clean, everybody is following all Covid protocols, I was very comfortable going there. And talk about convenient: you park RIGHT out front! No parking garage to deal with! I highly recommend Edge Dental!

Had LANAP procedure and “deep cleaning” done recently. Great customer service, very personal, yet very professional. The clinic is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art equipment. Dr. Justin Lai was very gentle and caring, making sure I was not in any discomfort all throughout the procedure. He also provides a good post procedure follow-up. Edge Dental is highly recommended.

Scheduling an appointment was so easy as well as filling out first-time-patient paperwork. It all can be done online. The staff was very friendly, professional, and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Lai took the time to talk about my teeth and my concerns. He provided options and a reasonable dental plan. I was very pleased with how cleaned my teeth looked and felt after my cleaning. The office was clean and inviting with proper protocols in place to protect patients during this pandemic. I would highly recommend Dr. Lai and his team!

Thank you Dr. Lai for taking care of my client and his family, it is greatly appreciated. If you leave near the Memorial Area Dr. Lai is a dentist you can truly trust and has such flexible hours to accommodate a crazy busy schedule.

I went to Edge Dental this afternoon as a new patient and was very impressed with the whole experience. The office is located in a nice part of town. It’s clean with a nice, relaxed ambiance. Overall, the staff was all incredibly professional and courteous. Dr. Lai was quick and thorough. He has a great sense of humor and appears to really enjoy what he does for a living. Hester did my cleaning and she was amazing. For someone with sensitive teeth, she was incredibly careful and took her time to make sure that I was comfortable. They are running a legitimate operation over there and I highly recommend anyone looking for a new dentist to give them a try.

WOW! All I can say is Edge Dental is the best! My wire from my retainer needed repair and they took me in immediately. From start, to finish, the entire team took great care of me. Dr. Lai is exceptional. He is kind, attentive and very professional. He took care of my wire, I was in and out in no time. I was so impressed by their safety measures especially during Covid-19, the process of my dental exam/x-ray was so easy- no uncomfortable squares in my mouth that is so time consuming. Very professional imaging machine… I already booked my next cleaning with Edge Dental! I am happy to be a new patient of Edge Dental. Keep up the great work!

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


When you walk in, you’re greeted not only by a friendly face and hello, but by a clean, bath and body works like smell. The ladies are professional, friendly and proficient. Dr. Lai takes his time to explain all of your options and treatment and the cleaning is quick and painless. They even give you an option to watch something on their huge flatscreen or listen to whatever you’d like during your procedure. Was a great experience and I’d recommend this place to anyone.

Dr Lai and team was amazing. Emergency crown due to cracked tooth. I was traveling and needed some real help. Fixed me up and then accommodated a really quick flight to H Town to install the crown and back to the airport. Pain free, great work and now my official dentist. I’ll travel in every 6 mos for this crew!

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


Friendly staff is so important to me.The front desk staff girls are always so welcoming and make you feel comfortable. My favorite part of the exam had to be the Xrays..I always gag and dread getting my pictures done because it’s so uncomfortable but their technology is top notch. The dentist also does a thorough procedure of checking the lymph nodes or any other soreness near the neck and throat which most dentists that I’ve been to haven’t done. Dr.Lai is patient, explained the cleaning process ahead of time and very gentle! He and his assistant are the best and I would recommend Edge Dental to my family and friends! I was finished in 30 minutes with a brighter smile. Thanks Dr. Lai and Edge Dental!

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


Great first time experience at Edge Dental and look forward to coming back in 6 months. Who says that after going to the dentist?!  The office is modern, clean, innovative and technologically advanced. The staff is friendly and Dr. Lai does a great job of communicating and educating the clients. They have a lot of ancillary service options such as teeth whitening, 6 month smile, etc… at a great value but they will not be pushed on you.

Vinh N. from Redmond, WA (Source: Yelp)


I was in town for a wedding and chipped my tooth on an apple a few days before. I found this dentist due to the Yelp reviews and stopped in to get it fixed. They were able to squeeze me in and Dr. Lai was able to fix it right before the wedding. The office is also one of the fanciest dental offices I’ve ever been to as well.

Vanessa I. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I was looking for a dentist that was open late on Tuesday night and possibly on Saturday  I came across this one on yelp. This one my first visit after a very long time I haven’t been to any dentist. I called and asked if I could go in and the front desk lady said they had an opening so I arrived in about 3 minuets. They took me right in. I’ve been having some problems with my tooth so they took ex rays checked me out and told me all I needed done. After a few minutes I agreed and they started working on my tooth that was decade. Whole procedure took about an 1 1/2 hrs. The only wait I experienced was while I was filling out my paper work. Excellent customer service and care. I loved it. I’m so glad I found them.

I was very impressed with Dr. Lai and his staff. I had zero wait when I arrived and I was very happy with the advice I received and the treatment. I was there for a deep cleaning to alleviate issues I was having with my gums, and the very next day the improvement was significant. I highly recommend Edge Dental.

I went here for a look at what was giving me pain. It was 7:50 pm when i got there and Dr.Lai still saw me. He quickly saw i needed a root canal and wanted to do it the same night, but i wanted them to be able to talk to my insurance first. I came back the next day and got it done. There was no pain during the root canal, even when giving me the numbing medicine. He was very gentle and his assistant was very helpful. Edge Dental is a very professional and comforting bussiness. I will recommend Edge Dental to anyone who wants a kind and professional dentist.

Super friendly staff. I felt welcome and cared for since I entered the office. Adrianna was so polite and Esther (hygienist) was very good and gentle with my cleaning. Dr. Lai saw me first before the hygienist because it was my first visit and I had not seen that in any dental office I have visited in the past. He explained his findings and recommended treatment plans. I never felt he was pushing any procedures that were not necessarily but took in consideration my dental concerns first and then asked me what goals I had in mind to improve my denture. There was no wait, which is always a plus.

Dr Lai and his staff at Edge Dental are the best of the best. It is a beautiful dental office with the newest equipment. They have great hours to allow flexibility with your schedule. Professional, personable and fantastic dental office. I would highly recommend!

Dr. Lai is extremely professional and personable! I trust his knowledge and experience to keep my smile healthy and bright. The technology they use for x-rays is easy and noninvasive, which I absolutely love. The staff is supportive and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Lai and look forward to my next visit!
