In the middle of West Texas, you do not expect to find a dentist who was born in Kenya and received his secondary education in England from King's School in Gloucester and initial dental education from the prestigious King's College Hospital, part of the University of London, but that is exactly where you will find Dr. Max Teja.

Meet Dr. Max Teja A Dentist with over 40 Years of Experience

Dr. Max TejaAfter graduating from King's College in 1978, Dr. Teja practiced in both England and Kenya before moving his family to the United States. Upon relocation to the U.S., he attended the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas where he graduated with honors in 1991.

In 2005, an opportunity unlike those before presented itself to Dr. Teja: a chance to open a dental practice in San Angelo, TX. He and Karin worked tirelessly for two long years to remodel the interior of the San Angelo, TX, office to their exacting standards. Those standards have paid off in an office that feels calm, peaceful and is decorated in soothing colors of a home that everyone comments on the second they walk in the door.

Those doors opened in June 2007 and Dr. Teja believes everyone who walks through should feel like it is a home. In fact, every patient is a member of our dental family and is treated as such. Our dental family is of extreme importance to him and to the practice which is why our dentist insists on doing more continuing education every year than is required by the State of Texas for his licensure.

Suffering From Sleep Apnea?

Dr. Teja is a dentist who helps patients with Sleep Disorder Breathing (SDB), a condition that can often times involve snoring, breathing stoppage, gasping for air, and causing interrupted sleeping patterns. Serious health issues such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and depression could develop if sleep apnea is left untreated. Dr. Teja may offer Craniofacial Epigenetics by using the Vivos Appliance System, a wearable biomimetic medical device that can ease or potentially eliminate your sleep disorder.

Dr Teja undertook an emergency procedure for me when passing through town, and not as a regular patient. Dr Teja was very thorough and professional, and the modern and comprehensive equipment in his office allowed me to walk in with a broken tooth and leave with a perfect crown. Everyone in his office was welcoming and friendly and I would not hesitate to recommend San Angelo Smiles.

The very best dentist. Not only is he kind but the best at making my dentures. He worked with me and the dentures until they were perfect. I feel sure he would be able to take care of any of your dental needs. His staff is great and make you feel comfortable and at ease.

Featured Procedures

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea doesn't simply cause loud snoring and overwhelming daytime fatigue - it can also take a toll on your cardiovascular and metabolic health. Dr. Teja is a dentist who can identify the cause of your sleep apnea and provide the treatment you need to achieve restful sleep and safeguard your health.

Learn More about Improving Your Sleep

Airway Analysis

As part of his approach to diagnosing and treating sleep apnea, Dr. Teja will conduct an airway analysis to determine how the soft tissues of the mouth, throat, and sinuses are affecting your ability to achieve deep sleep at night. This data informs treatment using the Vivos® System, which our dentist can use to help you gradually achieve an improvement in your ability to breathe properly during sleep.

Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART)

Removing silver amalgam dental fillings can expose the patient to harmful mercury vapors. Dr. Teja uses the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) to minimize risks and safely transition the patient into a dental filling made of tooth-colored resin, a more natural-looking alternative with far greater biocompatibility.

Payment Options

At our state-of-the-art practice in the Concho Valley area, we want to make payment as easy as possible for you. That's why we accept the following forms of payment:

  • Cash
  • Check
  • Credit Cards (Discover, MasterCard, Visa)

Insurance and Financing

If you are a patient with dental insurance, we will work with your carrier to maximize your benefits and directly bill them for reimbursement for your treatment, subject to your plan’s specific limitations and coverage. However, if we do not receive payment from your insurance within 90 days, you will be responsible for payment of your treatment fees. Also, if you miss or cancel your appointment without 24-hour notice, you will be charged a $25 fee.

Not all dental procedures are covered by insurance, especially cosmetic treatments and dental implant surgery. That's why we work with CareCredit, Lending USA, Lending Club, and First Finance to provide our patients with affordable and convenient financing options and payment plans. Dr. Teja wants you to receive the high-quality dental care you deserve regardless of budget limitations.
