So far after my first visit I give it a 5 star. Dr Speck and team can best be described as quirky with a splash of something which could be genius and could be Kra Kra. But they do seem to be passionate about your teeth. And as long as the Jimmy Buffet keeps filling this beautiful space, I’ll keep going. Updated 11/16-seriously he’s great. The space is great. The dental hygienist (her name escapes me) is AMAZNG. I went in this morning because I was in Alot of pain from a tooth that had been giving me fits. They literally spent 30 minutes calming me down. Holding my hand. Cold compress on my forehead… And letting me hold Timmy the Tooth. All for a procedure that took 2 minutes. All good now. Ty Dr Speck. Check him out if you’re looking for a new teeth Dr. If you’re considering a nee

It’s been awhile since I’ve seen him but Dr. Speck was Greet. He is always Happy go lucky. A smile on his face. His helper was Great also. I love going to his office. If I am down in the dumps, by the time I leave I’m in a better mood. THANK YOU – DR. SPECK!! Ann

Dr. Speck was great! I only give him 4 stars because it is after all the dentist so I do not think I could give any dentist 5 stars. It was a very short wait. He was great and actually cleaned my teeth himself. I have only had dental assistants do that before. He was gentle and explained everything as he was doing it. He has a really cool office space in the TribecaLofts. I would 100% recommend him to my friends.

Hi Dentist Seekers, I normally do not leave reviews because “Ain’t nobody got time for that,” (to leave a review or read my lengthy story) but Dr. Speck’s service was superb and I hope my story helps another person. Doctor Speck has been my employer’s dentist for years. After I had an unpleasant experience at another dentist, he referred me to Dr. Speck. My visit with Dr. Speck saved me countless dollars and frustration and provided a great service to me. My previous dentist had a lavish setup, a pleasant staff, and all of the newest gadgets but that previous dentist refilled a filling incorrectly. It had microscopic holes in it, so six months later at a routine cleaning, that doctor needed to refill it again. Long story, I had to go back two more times and that cavity still jolted me if I chewed on that side of my mouth. At the first cleaning, that dentist told me I had four cavities and no enamel on my teeth. He wanted me to buy some paste products for $75 and gave me a quote for the cavities. I decided to look elsewhere for service. I waited six months and went to Dr. Speck. I told him none of my previous woes except I had pain on a certain tooth. He did some magic tricks, sanded something, and I can bite on that side. Yay! He also cleans your teeth himself with a turbo water pick. This could save him overhead costs, but who cares? I felt really good getting special attention. Other dentists only spend five minutes with me to knock around my mouth. I got to ask Dr. Speck questions about my gum health and each of my teeth concerns without feeling rushed! That’s relieving. Once he had cleaned my teeth and looked at my x-rays, he said come back in six months. I said, “What about my four cavities?” He said I had a few spots to watch but no cavities. I asked about my enamel. Turns out the ridges were simply a bit of old glue from my braces years ago. Dr. Speck restored my faith in humanity and the healthcare system. I sleep easy now. If you want to rest assured that you are not getting suckered to buy snake oil, go see Dr. Speck. Kristen 28, yuppie female Houston, Texas

Just left the best cleaning/exam ever! I made an appointment to come in with my mother and sister and we were all in and out in about an hour and a half. The deco inside of the building was very artistic and went perfectly with their Montrose location -I felt like I was in an art studio! Assistant Annie and Dr Rachel Speck were both friendly and super efficient. They thoroughly answered all of my questions and left my teeth feeling so fresh and so clean. I’ll be back again in 6months!

Because of an accident to the face when I was 4yrs and 7yrs old I have been in the dental chair all of my life I have learned a lot about dentists as I grew up and moved around Houston I can tell you that Dr Frank Incrapera and Dr N Kirk Speck are two who are technicians as well as artists in their craft. Dr Frank is retired But Dr N Kirk Speck has taken over the care of my teeth and I am so blessed to have a dentist is who is both “genius ” and current technological expert Truthfully I cannot believe I found him at this later stage in my dental life

I would like to thank Dr. Speck and his staff for being very caring with me today during my appointment. I emailed the office prior to my appointment Dr. Speck actually read my message. He was informed about my dental issues. This made my appointment so much smoother. He did not have to guess what was going on with my teeth. My appointment went better than expected. Thanks

Wisdom teeth pulled. He was efficient, skilled, and spent time making me feel comfortable. Staff is highly skilled and dedicated to explaining everything. Made the whole process as painless as possible.

I want to start by saying I am a patient who comes with a lot of dental related anxiety from a previous experience. I was recommended to Dr. Speck by a good friend of mine who is also his patient and I am so happy! From the office administrator to his dental assistant to Dr. Speck himself they each seemed to genuinely care that I had dental anxiety and wanted to do everything in their power to put me at ease and they did just that! I had the most positive dental experience ever and I had not been in 2 years! I will definitely not miss any more check ups now.

Hi fixed my tooth! I had a root canal about 2 years ago and continued to have problems with it. I went to multiple dentists and they all said there was nothing wrong with it but it continued to bother me. I went in for a general cleaning today and Dr. Speck noticed something on my X-rays. He was able to adjust the bite and fix my problem that I had for 2 years!

Hi I’ve worked side by side with Dr. Speck for over 30 yrs. and it’s such pleasure to work with someone who’s passionate and enthusiastic about his profession. Dr. Speck’s satisfaction is knowing at the end of the day he’s made all his patients feel comfortable and that all their dental needs were fulfilled. It’s still such very rewarding coming in to the office to work with Dr. Speck.

What a guy! Great experience with this dentist. Very honest, professional and humour that you will not get anywhere else. Just had my wisdom teeth taking out by Dr Speck this morning. I was in and out faster then you can say ‘wisdom’, i have zero pain and back to work. Which is a reflection of his dentistry.

Cumi W. from Texas City, TX (Source: Yelp)


The best Dentist hands down! He was so informative about teaching me about my teeth. I appreciated that because it was a simple thing as telling me the correct way to brush my tongue. No dentist has ever educated on my teeth. He actually is passionate at what he does and I am forever thankful to find a Dentist like him.

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


Hands down the BEST DENTIST EVER!!! His office is very stylish and super comfy. The music is always good and that helps take your mind off what’s happening. A+++ for the dental work! All my fillings, wisdom teeth extractions and repairing fillings from previous horrible dental work, all done quickly and beautifully and I didn’t feel a thing! Dr. Speck is a dental rock star!

Dr Speck and his staff are fantastic. Dr. Speck has a great wealth of knowledge and experience. I would certainly recommend his practice to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and reliable dentist.

Enjoyable visit. Great atmosphere and Dr Speck has a wonderful bedside manner. I’ve always enjoyed my dental visits. Never a bad experience in the 12-15 years I’ve been visiting his office.

First time I’ve ever been to a DDS that the dentist did the cleaning and screened for sleep apnea & measured oral cavity. Chair side manner put me at ease after years of going to the same dentist who retired, I was very anxious- Dr. Speck put me at ease that he is a good choice!

Haider A. from Spring, TX (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to them by a friend. I can’t say enough good things about the experience i had for my appointment on 06/02/15. They did an excellent job of identifying and resolving the issue along with ensuring that i got the preventive care i needed so badly. Very honest, professional, and thorough!

Art F. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I have the most different and very positive outcome going to Dr. Speck. First off  I like the atmosphere and decor which is not the “standard” dental office atmosphere. The staff I asked has been with him for 20 years. But what Sold me on coming back to Dr. Speck is that the 2 previous dentist did not ever “catch” this over bite I had due to previous dental work and Dr. Speck noticed it immediate and fixed it to where my “bite” is normal again. My wife also went there.

I came in for a cleaning. First time patient. His office was very quaint and very non-dentist. More like a lawyer’s office in a loft which made it seem less scary (although lawyers are scary). He was very gentle and he has up to date technology to clean your teeth painlessly. I recommend him!

Dee K. (Source: Zocdoc)


Excellent personal care from everyone in the office. I needed deep cleaning, which I thought would take at least two visits. To my pleasant surprise it only took the one visit and the results greatly exceeded my expectations. Dr. Speck and his assistant worked as a team and were thorough, patient and caring. The procedure was comfortable, my teeth look and feel great and I do not feel any after treatment pain or discomfort. They kept my mouth well drained throughout the entire procedure and explained what was going on. One other thing, I observed that they also treat each other with old fashion courtesy and respect, that really says a lot to me. Words of advice, go through the entire email; it has parking instruction and the building access code. Also for your first visit arrive a little early as there is construction going on in the area (11/13/15) and you may need the extra time.

I am a new patient of Dr. Speck. I went in for my first appointment, a teeth cleaning, and I was very surprised that Dr. Speck was the one actually doing the cleaning. I am 24 years old and have never had the actual dentist do the cleaning. It’s usually an assistant. He did a really good job with the cleaning because I hadn’t been to the dentist in two years, so I had a lot of buildup and he got it all.

I typically hate going to the dentist–not the case with Dr. Speck. It’s as quick as easy as possible–and he didn’t make me feel bad about the fact that it had been quite a while since my last check up. Everything was timely; I didn’t feel like extra charges were pushed on me, and I’m actually looking forward to having my teeth cleaned in 6 months.
