Everyone here is really nice and respectful, from the admin to the dentists. They were able to see me last minute and do the dental work I needed. I spent a long time in the chair, but they were gentle and mindful of my comfort the entire time. Dental Assistant Michelle  was even gracious enough to track down and lend me headphones so I could listen to a book while they worked! Additionally, they helped me find an affordable treatment option. They really go above and beyond for their patients! I even recieved some aftercare videos to review at home. Highly recommend.

Well first let me start by saying I am absolutely terrified of dentist because of a childhood experience but I had to go because my tooth was hurting me horribly. I chose this location because of all the good reviews and let me say it was a great decision. I had a great experience here, Every single person was great. Everybody was reassuring and comforting. They made sure I was okay and talked to me the whole time. I would definitely recommend this dentist to others and will definitely use again.

All the employees at Republic Dental are AMAZING!  From the time you enter the facility,  to the time you leave it,  you feel welcomed. The receptionists are nice, the hygienists are Awesome & patient, while the dentist is extremely helpful. They even do a follow-up call & make you feel like they care. I have already recommended my husband & would definitely suggest this office to others. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK REPUBLIC!

Besides the office being nice and modern, everyone there is geared toward excellent service and I was treated well. My treatments were explained to me very clearly and there wasn’t a guessing game regarding the cost. I would recommend this office to anyone who wants excellent service and excellent care!

I decided to go to this dental office because it was closer to my home then the previous one I use to go for my dental needs. I had no information about this dental office from anyone, so I was reluctant. It was one of the best decision . The office was sparking clean with top of the line medical equipment. The personal were very friendly and courteous.The dentist was also very friendly and nice. Great experience!

Staff & Doctors where very friendly and took very good care of my husband. They never made him feel uncomfortable. He/ my husband is the type of person whom never wants to see a doctor of any kind. He left the office happy and not dreading his next appointment. So happy that we found an office that he/ my husband is willing to return to. Thank you so much.

This is first time here for us (Wife, Son and Me). We had wonderful experience. Staffs are nice and professional. All went well and they executed it neat and nice. From the entrance to exit, whoever you meet, they treat you like special guest. I would say, this is the best clinic in town. Special thanks to Sandra.

New to the area and discovered this gem of a location by sheer luck. Walked up knocked on the door and was greeted by one of the nicest and welcoming staff I have encountered in a really long time. Very refreshing to be honest. Making an appointment was very easy and they accommodated four new patients all in one afternoon so I wouldn’t have to schedule multiple days. The day of the appointments was very easy and pain free. Four patients in and out with three hours with all of us requiring xrays, cleaning, and one patient requiring extra attention. I would highly recommend this service to anyone searching for a friendly and professional dentist.

My experience with this office far exceeded my expectations. The staff are courteous, professional and go to great lengths to make their patients feel comfortable. They are transparent about recommended treatment plans and pricing. I feel the office utilizes modern techniques to effectively treat for different dental needs. They strive to ensure superb quality and that their patients have excellent dental health. I have finally found my dental home.

A family member recommended this dentist office and I’m so glad they did. I could not be more pleased with how this office conducts their business. They are kind, professional, and empathetic – characteristics that are sometimes all too rare nowadays. The office staff was fantastic & their prices are very reasonable. I am thrilled to finally find an excellent dentist office again. Thank you!

Great doctors, assistants and reception personal! Customer service is better then other places we ever experienced before, treatments are almost immediate which makes your health condition get well in short term! Doctors are very good in explaining the details starting with X-rays and finishing with step by step explanation of the treatment plan which includes ONLY NECESSARY procedures. Doctor dedication to the patient and performance during non-business hours.

Great experience! Very friendly staff. Greeted by Valerie with a warm smile. Stephanie was my hygienist. She was easy to talk to, nonjudgmental and very gentle. Everyone I interacted with told me what was going to happen and Valerie covered my benefits with me. Dr. Espino spent about 10 minutes with me before my appointment. He tried to find out a bit about me personally and put me at ease for the appointment. Definitely glad I chose this office…even got a goodie bag at the end of the visit.

Great dentist office with friendly/helpful staff and convenient location. An uncommon service this establishment offers is they only recommend procedures that are actually necessary instead of taking every opportunity to make money. I really appreciate that they are not in it exclusively for the money and that they really seem to care about your personal condition – offering suggestions and treatments specific to your individual needs.

This was my first visit and I must say I’m seriously impressed on the great work. I had to have 2 of my front teeth corrected due to cavities. I was dreading that people will be able to see I had work done. To my amazement you can’t even tell I had any work done. My teeth look absolutely amazing !!!! The bedside manner given makes you feel completely comfortable and at ease. Looks like I found my permanent dental office from here on out. I highly recommend them !!!

I’ve been using them for a few years after recommendations from other friends. Without a doubt, she and her husband are the best dentists I have ever seen. Yesterday, I showed up without an appointment as the office was closing, and they re-opened for me to repair dental work done by another dentist several years ago. They treat you like family! I’m retiring in Dallas but will be coming to San Antonio for my dental work in the future.

They are amazing! Very kind to patients and the patients family. They make sure you feel comfortable. They worked with us financially and didn’t push anything on us. They did my brothers wisdom teeth a month or so ago and he healed great. I had a filling and wisdom tooth pulled today and will be back next month for the next 3. It was not painful and it was quick. They are meticulous. Highly recommend! Thank y’all! I already feel relief 🙂

Today was my first appointment with them. Great customer service, conversation, and care. All employees including dental assistants and the dentist herself were fantastic. They are very considerate as well about how sensitive your teeth may be. The couches in the waiting room provide for a relaxed and comfortable wait as well

I have been a patient with Republic Dental for about a year now. I had my braces put on with them, which I still have on. The staff are great individuals and the doctors are very knowledgeable and experienced. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a good dentist and orthodontist.

Diana Franco (Source: Google)


From start to finish this is the best dental experience I’ve had in quite some time. The staff is friendly, courteous, thoughtful, and very knowledgeable. The hours are super convenient for those working a regular day job, and these guys are taking the extra precautions necessary to keep you safe during the Pandemic. I highly recommend Dr. Espino and his staff for all of your dental needs. You won’t be disappointed.

Melinda T. from San Luis Obispo, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the best dentist office in the world!! I have a lot of dental issues and have been to several dentists. This place is amazing! They took care of me last minute and treated like family right away! Every single staff member has a great personality and is easy to talk to. Most of all, they were honest about everything and that is really hard to find in any medical office now a days. I recommend this place to everyone! It’s definitely my new home for all my dental needs!

Hands down the best dental practice in all of San Antonio. As soon as you walk in, the staff already knows who you are and greets you by name. You wait almost no time at all to get admitted and have your dental work performed in a swift and timely manner. I now get my cleanings scheduled here every 6 months and I enjoy the honest critical and constructive feedback given by my hygienist on what best practices to follow for my oral and overall health. I’m also glad they are now open Saturdays, meaning no need to take time off of work! Don’t think twice if you live in the area and are looking for a dentist and orthodontist practice that will keep you smiling, not just with happy and healthy teeth, but also because of the utmost attention to detail and customer satisfaction.

I’ve never had a better experience at a dental office than I have had with Dr. Espino, his staff has an immeasurable amour of kindness, care, respect and a genuine love for there patients. Dr. Espino’s knowledge, quality of work, and care is of the utmost excellence. I’ve had implants, tooth extractions, fillings, and partial work performed with minimal discomfort or pain, my children have had work done here also and they love to come to the dentist because of there excellent care for children. I highly recommend Republic Dental hands down, they are definitely a blessing from God.

Excellent service every time I go in. I’ve been going here for the past 2 years since I’ve moved to San Antonio and every time they exceed my expectations. Not only is the Dentist very kind but so are the assistants and staff. My Fiancée and I love to come here and get out teeth worked on. 10 out 10!

This place was so nice as I walked in with my daughter, we were greeted, offers coffee, and my daughter got a bottled water, with a snack for latter, ok my daughter is 16teen, was very nervous, but all went so well, they amazed me on how nice and caring they are!we love them,for just doing an awesome job.

Needed a root canal and they immediately accommodated me; from check-in to check-out everything was smooth and seamless. I was initially greeted by Steve Z. who took care of me on both my visits; he is very personable, kind and patient. Dr. Espino gave me the first diagnosis and recommended a root canal – they explained everything but were not pushy. My second visit Steve was there again to help and assisted Dr. Sanchez with the root canal. The entire staff (including the young lady at the reception) are kind, caring and just wonderful. I would definitely recommend this location and the staff there. Additionally, the prices were surprisingly low – so my wallet is happy too 😉

I absolutely hate going to the dentist, I really can’t open my mouth too big and hate huge mouth guards. My hygienist was 100% kind to me and very patient. I asked her questions about my procedure and what to do after that, she even used a smaller mouth guard for me. I have never had such a great experience like this before from the dentist. I’ll definitely will be going back!

I I am a plastic surgeon here in town and I fly my mom down 1800 miles to get dentistry work (including implants and complex work )with Dr. Espino . I’ve known him now over 10 years and find him to be the most competent dentist and implant specialist in the city. I sent my patient damn for zoom whitening all of my complex plastic surgery patients and cosmetic patients and they love him as well if you have any questions you can call my office!!! Dr J

I had a broken wisdom tooth and a broken molar, felt agonizing pain for about 2 years. I suggest anyone that has a broken tooth, don’t wait two years, the pain is a 10 out of 10 I can promise you. Got myself a root canal and a crown and removed the wisdom tooth that was broken. Needless to say, I am walking on air. The staff was phenomenal, they were attentive to any time I felt pain and addressed it immediately, the process was not as long as I thought it would be, and the overall results I could not be any happier. The only way it could have been better is if they could have regenerated the tooth itself back to its original state before anything happened, which is a fantasy dream and never going to happen in real life at least in our lifetimes. I like the way my tooth looks, I love the way the crown feels in my mouth, and I look forward to my next appointment. I’m always hesitant to leave reviews for anything, but I am pretty confident in leaving this review. Update: 09-09-2020 Oh my, went in thinking it was just updating and preparing for yet again another potential root canal and crown, but they did it that day and it was faster than my previous visit in 2018. Far more accurate, less pain, I literally fell asleep for a bit during a root canal and crown. My only gripe, only one and it’s probably just me…but I would have loved to watch the procedure being done. Like a monitor or mirror above showing me what they’re doing in my mouth, oh that would have been more fascinating than any netflix show. Otherwise, this was spot on, they took care of me and made sure I was 100 the entire time. A part of me kinda wishes I had more trouble teeth as I can’t find that kind of attention anywhere else, well for me anyways. Honestly I was colored impressed with how quickly it was done and far far better than my last visit…I cannot stress that any further.

I had an amazing experience at Dr ESPINO’s office. I started at the front of house with attentive , Courteous, and kind staff. In back of house was just as fantastic . I have anxiety going to the dentist and everone there took my level of anxiety to comfort level that I can go back l am looking forward to seeing Dr ESPINO and his staff all the time .

It was my first time going to the dentist after almost 3 years. Thankfully I only had to get a cleaning. The staff was very friendly, the doctor as well, super professional and down to earth. The hygienist was very sweet, professional and fast. Overall, I had a fantastic experience and will definitely recommend this place to anyone.

We’ve gone to Republic dental for several services and the staff is always courteous and professional. Doctor Sanchez makes us feel confident that we’re in the right hands and Hygenist Steve Zuniga is a pleasure to be around and always make us feel comfortable.We’ll continue to refer everyone we know here!

Probably the best service I’ve had in my life and I’m only 24 years old, the girl in the back I believe her name was Jessica had an excellent attitude as well as Rachel and the other staff just made me smile throughout my visit. Everybody in the office made me feel special after my visit. Thank you Family Dentistry(Dezevala Location)

The entire staff is warm and welcoming but most of all was my experience. I have very sensitive teeth and cannot even handle a cleaning without being numbed. They explained everything fully and i was reassured that I would be pain free. They were so gentle and painless. I definitely recommend them to anyone needing a dentist. I’m encouraging my brother to switch dentists since he is not completely happy where he is at currently.

Camryn Middleton (Source: Google)


Great experience. I am honestly hesitant with dentists because I have sensitive teeth and what not. But the staff was great, the doctor was knowledgeable, and they were very good about getting feedback during the procedures to make sure I was comfortable. Will definitely continue going and pick back up with my yearly cleanings.

I suddenly had a large (and somewhat complicated) filling fall out. They had an appointment slot for me 2 hours after my call! Very sweet, careful, and I didn’t feel a thing while having a new filling put in (and I have anxiety about that stuff.) Very fairly priced and I already have additional cleanings scheduled. Thank you guys!
