Dr. Alani and her staff are simply amazing. Everything about my experience was awesome. I have had a gap in my two front teeth since middle school and I have never seen my teeth without a gap. I have went to other dentist who simply told me they could not do it, they don’t think it would look right, my gap is too big for teeth bonding, etc. I found this Dentist on YouTube and seen her amazing work. I instantly knew I just had to see her for my problem. When I say she is freaking awesome, and a perfectionist!!! She will not half do anything, she made sure my teeth were as perfect as can be and I am highly satisfied. Thank you so much for my smile, I have even more confidence than I ever have.

Today my experience was splendid. I drove from Dallas to get some TLC on my teeth. It started with an instant positive connection at the front desk. No long wait. Next, the lovely & pretty dental assistant prepped me for my exam. I had alot of questions and she was on IT! Thank you for your help. Dr. Terri Alani next then worked on my smile with precision, humor & skills. I’m happy to say that’s my dental office!!! My 4 hour drive was worth every mile. I’d super recommend her to my family & friends. To much more success team!

I love Dr. Alani and her staff! I had a terrible situation that I was put in by another dental office (read my other reviews if you would like to know which one) and Dr. Alani literally saved the day. She has been in her field for a very long time and is HIGHLY acclaimed and regarded. You receive top quality care and VERY reasonable prices (especially if you have Delta Dental). Dr. Alani and her staff get to know the patient and actually remember what you tell them. She will ask about my “boyfriend” or lack thereof and talk to me about my experience at XYZ school. It is really refreshing and a whole lot better than Doc: “Didn’t you say you went to ABC school?” Me: “No Doc, no I did not”. The only downside is the potential wait time. DR. Alani likes to keep her establishment homey, so she only has a few chairs. If there are backups during the day, a late afternoon appointment gets pushed back quite significantly. I recommend making appointments in the morning! Truthfully cannot say more wonderful things about this office!

Dr.Alani is The Queen Of Teeth. I absolutely Love Her!!!!!! I got my snap on smile from her and I’m overly obsessed with the fabulous job she did. And I had the pleasure of going with her on Thw Debra Duncan Show!!!!! And she’s so sweet she makes you feel comfortable on every visit. You rock Dr.Alani I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants that Hollywood Smile

My experience with Dr. Terry Alani was phenomenal, she thoroughly addressed all of my concerns her chair side manner was perfect! My experience with Dr. Dan awesome he also made recommendations to address all of my dental cares and concerns. After my consultation I’m very comfortable with proceeding to complete all of my dental services. I am looking forward to my next visit.

It’s always been my position that you should find a good dentist and stick with that person like your married to him or her. I’ve known so many people who have used a different dentist for every cavity and crown in their mouth and what they end up with is a lopsided mouth with a crazy bite. I found Dr Alani when I was 27 years old, thought she was awesome and decided she was the one for me and now at 52, I’ve been with her way longer than I’ve been with my husband, lol! Dr Alani is a consummate professional, as are her staff and their work is absolutely the best. I trust all of them implicitly and know that I am in good hands every time I walk in the door. I don’t know what I’ll do if Dr. Alani retires, I guess I’ll have to follow her to the retirement home for dentists or something.

Ok…so I do not usually write reviews but I wanted to share my experience ..I called Dr. Alani’s office in panic .. I found her site on the internet..seems she does alot of tv and radio so I felt she would be qualified. My front veneer came off eating lunch and I needed a dentist pronto!!I Anyway, I called Dr. Alani’s office and I was shocked that an energetic, capable person, not a machine, answered the phone. I told her my front veneer had popped off and she made me feel at ease. She told me not to worry, that Dr. Alani would be able to see me within the next hour. Talk about a relief.. no more snaggle tooth..Anyway, the office was sort of small but very clean and everyone was really nice. I was seen relatively on time. Dr. Alani is really personable and knows her stuff. She recemented my veneer and I was on my way…They actually called the next day to see how I was doing. Her office is on Westheimer, a busy street and there can be traffic, but it was worth it…

Dr. Terri Alani and her team are a crackerjack operation. From my initial consultation with her, to my final procedure thus far, her price quotes to me remained the same and there were no surprise add-ons to pricing. Dr. Alani took her time with me, and even though I thought my teeth looked perfect after she let me look in the mirror, there was something she didn’t like about her work. So, she went back in and worked on them some more until she was satisfied. And, my teeth did look much better afterwards. Thank you, Dr. Alani, for being so persistent and thorough in your work, and for giving me such a beautiful smile again!

I would like the world to know she is the most wonderful person i have ever met she is my angel on earth. She is very kind, loving and if you ever need a Dentist please see the tooth lady. She made me a new woman i am entirely grateful for this office and my angel. I just love Dr. Alani for blessing me. I am blessed for Ted from channel 13 for helping me find my angel. I just love my beautiful teeth.

Thank you to Dr Alani & her amazing team for all their wonderful hard work! Everyone including & especially Piper were so sweet, helpful, calming, understanding, honest, pleasant patient, & precise & knowledgeable ! Having gone to many different dentist over my 50 plus years, I haven’t found until now such a great team that work all together for the common goal of helping & making people feel better about themself.. Dr Alani & her team are honest & precise! They truly cared about us making it easy when scheduling my appointment days & times! (driving from Magnolia to Galleria with traffic isn’t easy. ) Dr Alani made any & all adjustments to make sure everything was done perfectly. (lab work) My husband & I are elated to find a dentist & team that truly care about the patients and not only the bottom line.. My husband still has some more work to do but with Dr Alanis team he is more comfortable with much less stress & anxiety about going. Having Piper on the staff was amazing experience & watching my husband go from having anxiety to an instant calm was awesome to experience.. we ARE dog lovers though I didn’t realize how calming they actually keep us during times of stressfull situations..He has a phobia about Dentist & Drs but it’s mostly the needles & shots) I think more hospitals and Dentists & Drs should follow Dr Alani example as it was truly a great experience! Dr Alani team worked with me & my insurance situation (which is never fun!) I would definitely recommend her & her hard working team to help you for all your dental needs! Thank you Dr Alani for all your honest wonderful hard work!

Latasha J. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I LOVE HER!!!!! She is the BEST DENTIST I’ve ever been to! She was very compassionate and I didn’t feel like she was rushing with me. She took her time and explained everything she was doing before she started. All the staff was involved in my care. Every person in her office has a job and they do it so smoothly that you’re in and out! I went for a deep cleaning and she did a great job. My teeth haven’t felt this clean or looked this good in a long time. I’m so grateful to her and her staff! If you are looking for a great affordable dentist she’s your go to dentist! She has me as a patient for LIFE. I took about 20 cards just so I can give them to friends and family.

I was extremely pleased with EVERYONE in the office! The girls in the front desk are always so sweet and make my visit worth waiting for, whenever there is a wait, (Which is hardly). Also, Dr. Alani is amazing! She is extremely nice and makes me feel super comfortable whenever I come to get my teeth checked. I’d definitely recommend her to everyone and anyone who want to get their teeth checked!

Alicia R. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


First let me start off by saying hands down the BEST DENTIST EVER  no wonder they call her the tooth lady. Doctor Terri Alani is the cream of the corp !, Just recently I had to go in for a  severely painful tooth that I’ve been dealing with for 6 months and had no other choice but to get a root canal ……ouch Dr. Alani and her staff made sure i was taken care of at all times. walking into the VERY CLEAN AND WELL PUT TOGETHER office i feel very much at home. I was absolutely scared to death walking into the office and getting the work done but dr. Alani made sure that I was numbs really good to where I couldn’t even feel a thing I swear she has a magic touch no other doctor in Houston can amount to her skill. Please guys visit the doctors office you will not be disappointed

Sajiah C. from Bellaire, TX (Source: Yelp)


I can’t begin to evaluate Dr Alani. As a stage 4 breast cancer ! I have seen many MANY doctors. She is the top of the list. All I can say is she is exceptional. She isn’t just a dentist, she is an activist for health and an educator. She has inspired my 11 yr old. She cares about her patients, their health and the office is immaculate and  the staff is so skilled. You won’t regret going to her. I haven’t!

Dr.Terri Alani (Texas Tooth Lady) and her staff are ABSOLUTELY the BEST! Dr.Alani is proffesional, knowledgeable, careing, patient, and so informative above and beyond any dentist I have ever seen before. I am so thankful and blessed to have Dr. Alani for my dentist. You will feel like family and receive the Golden standard of care for your teeth, with Dr Alani and Staff and Piper of course, she’s adorable!

Terri Alani is by far the best dentist in town. She does not mislead her patients and advises them based on whatever the patient needs for solid mouth health. I love her for this honesty and for this reason I know I can trust her and whatever treatments and procedures she recommends. Her office staff are just as competent, trustworthy, and kind. I LOVE her therapy dog; she is so sweet. What more can I say? She is simply the best!

Betty T. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Alani is one of the safest dentist to visit during this pandemic with SARV-2 virus being airborne. She and her staff follow very careful protocols for masking and protecting their patients. The area has proper ventilation systems where is air is cleaned as well as possible. I appreciate the professionalism of Dr. Alani and her staff taking everything possible to keep us safe. Thanks. Dr. B. Thompson

A couple years ago, I briefly skimmed an article on Dr. Alani’s SnapOnSmile procedure. I was curious, but didn’t bother pursuing it further due to what I imagined would be either costly cosmetic dentistry or something “affordable” yet completely lacking in quality. Last April, I was sent a photo from a family friend taken at a family event. My smile is usually confined to conceal the missing teeth (located towards the side/back of my mouth). Although you couldn’t see the missing teeth (something I’d learn to perfect over the past few years), my smile had become asymmetrical. This prompted me to IMMEDIATELY search for a solution. I found myself watching a video of Dr. Terri Alani on our local Good Day Houston (w/Debra Duncan). I watched as she detailed a rather uncomplicated, non-invasive (not to mention cost efficient) solution to my problem. So I made my first appt the next day. I was greeted (as continued to present day) by her courteous, friendly and accommodating team. Admittedly, I remained somewhat reticent as to the final results. (Surely, nothing that sounds this ‘too-good-to-be-true’ will ever live up to its hype?) Today was the day I had my SnapOns placed on. After a few adjustments to ensure my comfort and satisfaction by Dr. Terri (and Ayanna – she rocks, btw!) I was set. My first look, I was slightly taken aback with at quality of the detail, the craftsmanship of the results. Before, I imagined I would probably have to become accustom to my “new” look. To my delight, the look isn’t “new”, it’s just my smile … complete. My advice to anyone contemplating an answer to affordable, non-invasive cosmetic dentistry: make an appointment w/#TexasToothLady and her welcoming team. – Lee A.

First off let me say since day 1 the customer service has been fantastic. Dr. Alani and her team are the BEST EVER!!! I’m always so nervous about going to the dentist, but the vibe that you get when you go in makes you feel so comfortable. I would most definitely recommend Dr. Alani to everyone. You will not be disappointed. She’s down to earth, I swear it’s like I been knowing her and her team forever.
Get you a A1 Dentista like me!!!  🙂

10- Stars!!! Dr. Alani and her team were simply phenomenal, the experience is definitely 5-star. The Physicians Assistant and nursing staff was knowledgeable about the process, I was a bit nervous but everyone was extremely patient. The restrooms, lobby, and examination rooms were clean, modern, and peaceful. My procedure was painless and I appreciate that she walking me through the process start to finish. I love my smile!!! Sending my friends, family, and colleagues to Dr. Teri!!!

I started to develop a small gap as I was getting older, it was becoming very noticeable especially in pictures. Dr. Alani was able to match the exact color of my tooth to the bonding material and successfully close my gap. I wish i got this done years ago! Saved me a lot of money from getting braces. Shes a wonderful lady and very sweet, you guys will not be disappointed! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I’m a gentleman in my late 50s and needed some cosmetic dental work, and after my due diligence, I selected Dr. Alani and her staff.  I’ve had some previous cosmetic dental work done, but truth be told, it’s been decades.  Let me start this review by saying after the very first time I called to set up an appointment for my initial visit, a little while later that day, Dr Alani personally called me back to talk to me and that made me very comfortable with my decision to choose her.  Who does that?????   From my very first visit, Dr Alani and her staff made me feel very welcome and comfortable in their office.  Her entire staff at the office is very professional and friendly and personable, and they go out of their way to take care of you and make you feel comfortable.  I had five porcelain crowns made and a Valplast lower partial denture and I can honestly say I felt absolutely no discomfort with any of the procedures, which did include 4-5 relatively PAINLESS injections…. something I can’t say I’ve ever previously experienced.  Dr Alani is professional, yet down to earth and always makes you feel at ease.  Her assistant, Esmerelda, is very professional and friendly and experienced as well.  The whole whole staff is great.  My dental work looks fabulous and I wouldnt hesitate in the least in recommending this dentist and her staff to my friends and family.  One other thing I need to mention – Dr Alani is in the heart of Houston, and not particularly close to where I live in the suburbs, but it’s been well worth the extra time to commute to her office.  Very highly recommended!

Terri S. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I had seen Dr. Alani on Channel 11 on Great Day Houston . She seemed very warm and really enthusiastic about dentistry..so I decided to try her out..not a large office but the customer service was first class. Just like back in the old days when people actually developed relationships with their clients and made them feel really important and comfortable. The staff is really down to earth and I was seen on time..Imagine that! I had a crown done and new digital xrays …it was so pleasant and not painful at all..believe me, I was dreading this appointment but I was totally satisfied and I am now a loyal patient. By the way, she gives the best shots..so that is my review and I do not think you will be disappointed!

Grace H. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr. Alani for porcelain Lumineers and after a week with my new smile I can honestly say it has been the best decision I have made. I have extremely sensitive teeth but Dr Alani made sure that any discomfort was resolved in the end. Very helpful, attentive staff as well. Ask many questions during your consultation and be well informed on the process. But know that the end result is priceless!

Alison A. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Teri since I was 13 and she is just the best, bottom line. Everyone in her office is so nice and the hygienists are incredible. I am never uncomfortable and they are so gentle! Teri is basically a dental celebrity but so genuine when you get to know her that you’d think you’ve known her forever. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my teeth, she’s just the best out there! If you are looking for a great reputable dentist, this is the one!

Now,I can smile with confidence and Dr.Alani made it possible! She demands perfection in her work. Her practice is top notch. Entire staff are so professional and friendly.I can say that Dr.Alani has a high quality team of skillful staff and awesome customer service. Highly Recommended Let’s not forget Piper, my stress reliever.

Jamie Kalish (Source: Google)


The staff is very friendly and helpful. They make you feel very at ease during your experience with them. Dr. Alani is very friendly and expects perfection when her work is complete. I wouldn’t want anything else. I will have the smile I have wanted for years when all is complete. I am very pleased with my experience here.

Margaret W. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I cannot say enough about Dr. Alani, her practice and her staff.  Dr. Alani provided me with beautiful porcelain veneers I could not have been more pleased with the result.  Her staff is the very best at cleaning and checkups.  But the reason I love this Dr. and her staff, happened this morning.  I tripped and fell on my face the beautiful veneer in front took most o the impact.  In tears I called Dr. Alani’s office and her compassionate staff told me to come right over.  Miraculously the tooth was not shattered but had been dislocated, Dr. Alani dropped what she was doing and within 30 minutes she had my tooth back in place. She is the BEST!

Jessi J. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Alani’s staff is very kind and thorough. It is an all female office and someone always says hello when I walk in. Located just down the street from the galleria, her office is a neat and up to date on technology. Sometimes it can get a little chilly so I would bring a sweater. They didn’t just try to sell me on one expensive procedure. Dr. Alani sat with with me and we went through all of my options. And thus far I have been very pleased with the treatment I have received. I highly recommend Dr. Alani for anyone who is looking for a general dentist and especially for someone who is looking for cosmetic work.

Shawnie Shawn Simmons (Source: Facebook)


Everyone was very friendly, caring and informative. My cleaning felt very thorough but comfortable. Dr. Alani was personable and knowledgeable, I switched to her as my dentist because I’ve heard so many great things about her being the Texas tooth lady and the smile fixer and I just was not getting any remedy or results from my old dentist. After just 1 visit she identified my problem and personalize a plan to get me started on smile goal! I’m excited to be on this journey with her leading the way!

By far my this has been my best experience with the dentist. For starts the staff has been very helpful. My work was mostly done by Dr. Alani and Ayanna in which both made sure I was comfortable and had a painless experience. For the first time I really feel like the dentist cares more about me achieving my goal of a perfect healthy smile more than getting as much money out of me as possible. Definite 5 stars. Thank you so much and I’m looking forward to coming back to complete my work.
