Dr. Teja may be the best dentist I have ever encountered. He has done extensive dental work for me and I am very pleased with the results. He is kind and caring in the process. There was no pain of any consequence.

As always, my experience was great. The staff is so kind, and so friendly! I never "dread" having an appointment and I really like the fact they are so sincere about working for "you" the patient and not an insurance company. Very very knowledgeable as well. Love this dental practice!!

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 US, 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.

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.

Under his care, you can experience far-reaching benefits that truly give you and your family something to smile about.

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.

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.

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.
