This is my forth implant I received from this facility. Obviously, I would not have returned if I did not feel that this was best for my mouth and I. The entire staff was wonderful from speaking to the front desk and setting up my appointment to the finish of the procedure. During the 4 implants, I had two different doctors that did the surgeries. Prior to the implant, the assistant had all the necessary information and paperwork completed, the proper tools were ready for the doctor and helped me get comfortable. The assistants and doctors explained what would happen while I was in “sleepy land” and before I knew it, the procedure was finished and I was wheeled to my car and my driver drove me home. They explained what post directions I needed to do. A few days after my last implant I still had discomfort to my jaw and called them to see if I could have the doctor look at the area hurting. I thought I would be lucky to see the doctor later that day or even the next day. Well… they said “when can you get here?” and I said 30 minutes and I was in the chair and the doctor was looking into my mouth to see if there was any concerns. Customer service is important these days and I feel Summerwood went above and beyond what was required. I would recommend this office for any of the services they offer. The only problem I wish they could do was be a full service dentist office as I would visit them for my normal dental needs. I hope I won’t need another implant but if I do I guess you will know what dental office I will go to……………

Honestly, I was terrified of having my wisdom teeth removed, so I did my best to search for a place that would do a good job without the excruciating pain and swelling that is known to happen afterwards. This place has such amazing reviews and they really live up to it. I had all four of my teeth extracted on July 18th after postponing it for six months out of pure fear. Fortunately, the staff is absolutely wonderful and helped me feel less anxious in order to schedule the appointment. They put me to sleep and it felt like it was over in an instant. After following the instructions on the papers I was given, there was very minimal swelling. My mother could not even tell the difference even on the day that it was expected to be the worst! For the most part, all I have really had to deal with is slight discomfort with the teeth near the extraction site. That is all. It has been almost two weeks since the procedure and I am thoroughly pleased. I am recommending my mother to come here for her dental implant.

I went to Summerwood OMS because they accept my dental plan and the office is close to my home.  The office is very organized.  I filled out all the paperwork on line, and got a detailed plan of treatment on my first visit.  I choose local pain control instead of general anesthesia to reduce the cost and also drive myself home after the proceedure.  The extraction went fine even though the tooth broke up and had to be removed in pieces.

I brought my son here last year to get 4 wisdom teeth pulled. We had such a great experience with the doctor’s and the staff, I decided to try them out again with pulling 3 of my teeth and adding 3 implants. The staff is very professional, kind friendly faces, and very helpful. They worked around my schedule to get me in with the doctor quickly. The process and procedures were explained a number of times to me by the doctor as well as the staff to make sure that I was fully aware of the process, the downtime, and what was to come after the surgery. I would recommend Summerwood Oral and Maxillofacial

I was pretty nervous coming into the appointment but once I got in the chair I felt very comfortable with the assistants and the Dr., we started talking about anime so that was coolant it made me relax even more. The surgery itself didn’t take very long and apparently I was very comfortable in the chair. 10/10 would recommend to people!! Thank you guys!

Beth G. from Humble, TX (Source: Yelp)


Very clean office and staff was fantastic! Since they ”squeezed us in” for emergency surgery, we did have to wait a while, but at least they accommodated us. Very professional, and easy to talk to. Very friendly and knowledgeable about all sedation questions I had (I had many for my son , a first timer). I highly recommend this office! You won’t be sorry!

Debra D. from Humble, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Thang and his staff are wonderful! I don’t think anyone would put a new implant on their Christmas list, but it is something I have to have. I thought a cap fell off the week after Thanksgiving, but when I went to my dentist he told me my tooth was broken. He referred me to Dr. Thang who could see me the next day. He thoroughly explained to me what needed to be done, his staff explained the costs involved, and I was able to schedule the extraction for today (Monday). Afterwards I came home, slept for 6 hours, and I am functioning now. So far, so good

Wonderful experience! Front desk, Nurses, and my Doctor (Dr. Thang) were absolutely amazing. I had VERY impacted wisdom teeth. Roots so deep that they were by the nerve in my jaw. The surgery went great. Recovery time I was nervous due to how bad the wisdom teeth were. But I did great. No pain just mild discomfort. Highly recommend! I’m sure all the doctors are great, but Dr. Thang was awesome, he’s great at his job. Thank you Dr. Thang, Nurses and staff you all deserve more than 5 stars. ~Leslie Lewis

the service was great! the ladies were very cool and easy going. it was a breeze making the appointment and getting all my information. the doctor is very handsome, nice, intelligent and a cool guy. He told me what needed to be done and I was able to get it done the same week. I healed quickly and everything was so amazing. I recommend this place to anyone who needs mouth work done. I felt no pain during my procedure and everything was smooth sailing. 10/10 or 5/5 🙂

Fast and friendly service: My time is never wasted unnecessarily at this dental office. I arrive at the schedule time that my appointment is set and as soon as I check in, I’m walked to a patien’s room or immediately taken a radiography of my dentures, depending on the reason for the visit. In no time I see my dental surgeon Dr Thang and he usually does a brief but thorough explanation of matters to be taken care of. Over-all the the staff at this dental office is pretty friendly and accommodating starting with the first person(receptionists) I speak to the last person I see (Dr Thang).

Best oral practice ever! Very professional I would recommend this place to anybody. I had a horrible experience at another place removing my bottom wisdom teeth but once got in the nurse walked me through everything and my top wisdom teeth were out with no problem! Doctors and nurses are amazing and know their practice.

Let me start by saying my experience here was great from the 1st call the young lady managed to squeeze me into their schedule for me to get a wisdom tooth extraction, Dr.Thang, and his assistants Unique and Kathleen were amazing in making me feel comfortable the entire time, when I was released they gave me proper instructions on aftercare and a good 3 days off work to recover which I really appreciated! I 10/10 recommend this office!

My husband went in to have a molar removed and was somewhat nervous because he had never had a tooth pulled before. Dr. Thang was great and explained the procedure and what to expect afterward. His assistants, Unique and Misty were also professional and kind. My husband had no issues with my surgery whatsoever and healed up fast! Would definitely recommend to anyone.

I had three wisdom teeth removed here and was blown away by the experience. They were very thorough and explained everything in detail so I felt comfortable. On the day of the procedure, they brought me in and before I knew it, everything was over and I was on my way home. I have experienced little pain post procedure. Dr. Thang, Misty, Kathleen, and Grecia were great!

David Martinez (Source: Google)


Please give a round of applause for Summerwood Oral Surgery! Dr. Price and his assistant Grecia were absolutely fantastic! Got my wisdom teeth pulled on Friday and by that night no swelling, no pain. Followed the instructions for post surgery care and went the next Friday for a check-up. Dr said I look great, healing processing is excellent and I get back to eating like a normal human being. The price was better than expected (insurance may vary). I would highly, highly recommend this practice to anyone on a budget and looking for great customer service! Thank you guys again! Saved my life and wallet!

I was in a decent amount of pain from procrastinating the removal of my wisdom teeth. I was referred to and contacted Summerwood Oral Surgery. They worked me in the same day. I saw Dr. Thang. He and Kathleen (assistant) made me feel comfortable about the upcoming procedure (wisdom teeth removal) and set me up for the easiest possible recovery. The staff is very considerate and accommodating. They have worked me into their schedule when I felt like I needed to be seen. I appreciate a medical practice that hears my concerns and works with me in a timely manner.

Wisdom teeth extraction and recovery was a whole lot easier than I thought it would be. I avoided this surgery for years and wasn’t sure which surgeon to trust. I decided on this office after reading good reviews on Dr. Thang. He didn’t disappoint- great at what he does. I highly recommend Dr. Thang and his team.

Emily Porter (Source: Google)


I would give 10 stars on Google if I could, to my surgeon, Dr. Thang and his assistants, Grecia and Unique! I had 6 teeth extracted and 2 bone grafts done. My procedure was quick and efficient. My recovery has been the same! No infections, no trouble with healing or stitches. Plus ALL of the front desk, insurance staff, etc were so polite and informative. I highly recommend!

Nicole Roberts (Source: Google)


Summerwood Oral Surgery office is amazing! I was referred here by my dentist and was immediately welcomed. The staff was very friendly and super sweet from the front office to the all my assistants(Misty) to surgeon (Dr.Thang). I was getting teeth extracted which isn’t a fun experience but they made sure it was very easy and painless. My recovery was quick! They made sure everything was communicated clearly and thoroughly (payments, appointments, recovery, surgery) which is always nice. Never have I ever been more happy with a dental experience.

Britt H. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely amazing service fit me in in less than 24 hrs with dr Warner heathman and I couldn’t be happier with bedside manner staff and his work! Had 26 teeth removed and immediate dentures placed and day 2 I am hurting a lot less than expected and so super happy they gave this 29 year old a new life I’m forever in debt to them with gratitude

Ric B. from Humble, TX (Source: Yelp)


Excellent customer service. I was skeptical at first because I was going in for an initial consultation and even though I was referred by another dentist they were talking about a $59 consultation fee. I was like the dentist already consulted with me when she referred me to you and sent me with this referral slip saying what tooth to extract. But the consultation included a panoramic x-ray, and real time conversation with the oral surgeon soon after. The follow up appointment was booked almost immediately and they worked real hard with my medical and dental insurances. I just had my surgery. It went excellent. I feel no pain, but doctor wrote two Rx just in case. Pain and reliever and an antibiotic. Very satisfied with results. Special thanks to Marisol and Grecia. Highly recommend.

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


I moved to Houston from Florida and had a great experience here with the full staff at this location! I was very speechless with such out standing customer services they provided! The Doctor put me to sleep with out me even knowing when, he makes you at ease!! Young Lady named Aurora was awesome, she made me really relax even while in pain! When it was all done she still remained by my side until I was able to get up to walk!!! Love this place I recommend with my eyes close!! Thank you all so much!

The best surgery ever (wisdom teeth extraction)! I was absolutely horrified at being put under the knife for wisdom teeth extraction. I should not have worried. I was in and out in less than 30 minutes. I felt not an ounce of pain during surgery. When I got home, the painless feeling continued and kept going. I took one pain pill anticipating the pain once the anesthesia passed, but the pain never materialized. I never opened the pain medication bottle again. And now, one week later, I still have not felt any pain (or swelling) and have begun eating real (regular) food. Dr. Christopher Thang – thanks! You are a wizard of this. When my kids grow older, I’m bringing them to you for their wisdom teeth. 100% two thumbs up! Oh, and it was NOT pricey at all. It costs much less than root canals for sure.

Elizabeth T. from Humble, TX (Source: Yelp)


Awesome customer service at Summerwood Oral Surgery! Each person of the team was very helpful and even apologetic when I had to wait 1 1/2 hours for my consultation visit due to several last minute emergencies. They were so apologetic that they gave me a Starbucks gift card for the inconvenience. Does your dentist do that? If not, I suggest giving these guys a call for your dental work. On my second visit, I was in/out in 10 min! Now I am not a fan of any dentist, but if you’re afraid of them like I am, give this Dr. and his staff a try. They were very comforting and patient with me. Thanks guys!

Andrea O. from Atascocita, TX (Source: Yelp)


I couldn’t be happier with Dr. Thang’s bed side manner. His pleasantness and professionalism put me at ease. The staff was so helpful in calming my nerves with my wisdom teeth removal surgery and all matters were explained clearly before and after the operation. Within 30 minutes Dr. Thang and his assistant, Cynthia had completed the procedure and I was on my way home with absolutely no cause for complaint. A week afterwards I came back because of some discomfort in my lower jaw. He and his assistant, Grecia , had the perfect and quick ( only a 10 minute appointment) solution, a paste that would numb the area until the socket could fully heal on its own. Sending me home with extra just in case I needed it later this week. They made an uncomfortable day into a great one! I have had no pain since! I am so happy I was referred here by Dr. Miller. Thanks again! Keep up the great work!

Lina R. from Humble, TX (Source: Yelp)


First of  all I was TERRIFIED about getting my wisdom teeth removed … I just hate anything that is dental related … But the staff and the doctor are fantastic , my whole procedure went well and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience , everything overall was a 10 I highly recommend this place for anyone looking to get some work done .

I would highly recommend Summerwood Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. The staff is very professional and the Oral Surgeons are warm, compassionate and up to date with the latest developments & treatments in Oral & Maxillofacial issues. I have a rare chronic condition and am truly grateful for the expertise and support of the Surgeons there. Stephanie Fahie

Overall great service. From the front desk staff to Dr. Thang I can’t say anything but positive things about them. I got all 4 wisdom teeth pulled on a Wednesday and had very minimal pain or discomfort the days following. My concerns were all addressed when I went in for my follow up appointment. Even when I called a few weeks after with some billing questions the front desk staff was able to immediately help. Overall very glad I chose Summerwood Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery for my procedure. Thank you all

Summerwood Oral Surgery is so professional! They are extremely kind and they took care of me. I was so happy after my procedure. I was very nervous in the beginning and everyone there reassured me I was in good hands and not to stress. Dr. Justin Seaman also let me borrow a CD for relaxation and took care of my needs. I was not in pain after the procedure and did not use the medication after day 1. I will be returning next year and I look forward seeing the wonderful staff again! Laura is in the front and she is soooo warm and caring. __________________________________________________________________ Post #2 in 2021: I came back! This time, I had a broken tooth during my pregnancy and I was 50/50. At first, I was not nervous because I already knew Valerie (Office Manager) and her staff is so kind! The ladies there are genuine, sweet, and very understanding. I was nervous on the day of surgery because I am pregnant and it wasn’t the ideal situation. Dr. Thang and Unique (Assistant) both sat down with me during consultation and surgery day. Surgery day, I was nervous because I couldn’t stop thinking about the baby. Dr. Thang used topical ointment and shots (approved by OBGYN) for numbing and talked to me the entire time. Dr. Thang has really great bed side manner, he is very professional and kind. Unique is also professional and spoke to me with facts and logic for the entire procedure. When my stiches came out I was so happy, I knew I healed great! I go back in 2022 to complete my implant! I look forward seeing everyone again!

Last week, I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth taken out. Dr. Thang and his team did a really great job. Everything was thoroughly explained and everything was answered without question. I honestly had no pain at all and just minor swelling which subsided after 3 days. I was in and out with a blink of an eye. I would really recommend this place.

Leslie Corona (Source: Google)


I went to get my wisdom tooth extracted, and had the best experience ever. They have such friendly staff, the place is really clean. I was so scared about the anesthesia part but Dr. Thang and his staff made it go so smoothly they played some music and we were talking and laughing while they prepared me for surgery that I don’t even remember when I fell asleep. The answer service is the best. I’m so glad they referred me to them!! Also Dr Thang was so professional explaining all the details of the procedure

I went here twice to get a tooth removed and I had the best experience on both occasions. Staff is very friendly and Dr. Chris Thang is awesome. He always try to make small talk during the procedure to get you talking. Next thing you know you wake up in a wheel chair rolling out of the office to go home. LOL! I love sleeping through surgery. Wish I could give it 10 stars. Would definitely recommend. There new office is pretty dope too.

I am not a fan of dentists, nor a fan of needing a tooth extracted. I have never been put under using anesthesia in my life. So my anxiety levels were extremely high going in! I was greeted as usual and escorted to my room. I had Grecia and Kathleen working with me to get me set up and feeling comfortable. They were very sweet and set me up with some nitrous oxide to help calm me down before the doctor came in for the IV. Dr. Thang came in and made sure he got a good IV line set up and told me I should start feeling less stress. That’s all I remember! Next thing I knew, the assistant was helping my wife get me in the car to go home. I never felt a thing and even days after, the pain level was minimal. Take it from someone who is not a fan and hates pain, this was the best dental experience I’ve ever had! I have found my “go to” dentist for any future work of this nature! They have my recommendation 110%

The staff here are super friendly and welcoming. I was really nervous about having 3 molars removed, but I was quickly put at ease. They were super informative as well and made sure to call and remind me of my appointments. The entire staff was really helpful following my appointment too! I would recommend this place to anyone. The best dental experience ever!!! Dr. Thang is the best and Kathleen was great as well.

On time, friendly, efficient, and professional. My 7 yr. old daughter had to have an extra tooth removed. They were so friendly and caring, explaining every little step to her so she wouldn’t be scared. Dr. Thang was so nice and clear on what needed to be done. They even played my daughters favorite music during pre-op so she’d feel more comfortable. Dental assistant Unique was great, always making sure I was well informed and my daughter comfortable. I just can’t say enough great things about this place.
