5-Star Reviews From Our 5-Star Patients "I will recommend San Angelo Smiles to everyone I know"

After several years of feeling terrible and having innumerable "unexplainable" different things happening in my mouth, I was referred to Dr. Teja by my primary care physician out of Houston, Texas. My primary dentist had done numerous caps and kept sending me to the endo over and over for a 3rd root canal in less than 12 months. I finally decided I had had enough. I needed answers. Dr. Teja took the time to seriously review my records, meet with me, and truly listen and search for the root of my problems. He wasn't looking to just hand over another pill or offer another root canal! Dr. Teja found abscesses missed by the last dentist! There WAS something wrong! He was so through and kind. I have a treatment plan set up and am over half way through. Please, take the time to see a dentist that doesn't see you as a number, but is actively still learning and using his practical experience to actually treat your entire body-starting with your mouth. I feel like I have my life back.

I am well pleased with Dr. Max Teja and his staff. While reviewing my dental CT image, Dr. Teja noticed a spot on my carotid artery and strongly urged me to have it checked out. That began a chain of events that led me to see a cardiologist. After several diagnostic tests, I underwent a heart catheterization procedure and the placement of a stent in one of the arteries supplying blood to my heart. I am thankful to Dr. Teja. His attention to detail may very well have saved my life. Not to mention the fact that he's a really good dentist. My wife and I are happy with the outstanding care he provides.

When searching for a dentist in West Texas, you may not expect to find someone who was born in Kenya, received his secondary education in England, and underwent his initial dental education at the prestigious King's College Hospital, part of the University of London. However, this is exactly where you will find Dr. Max Teja.

Meet Dr. Max Teja A Dentist With Over 40 Years of Experience

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

In 2005, Dr. Teja was presented with a new opportunity: a chance to open a dental practice in San Angelo, TX. He and his wife, Karin, worked tirelessly for two years to remodel the interior of our San Angelo, TX, office to meet their high standards. Those standards have paid off in the form of an office that makes patients feel calm and welcome as soon as they enter the door. 

Those doors opened in June 2007, and Dr. Teja believes everyone who walks through them should feel at home in our office. In fact, every patient is a member of our dental family and is treated as such. This family is of extreme importance to Dr. Teja and to the practice, which is one of the reasons why our dentist insists on pursuing more continuing education each year than is required by the State of Texas.

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 your 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 employ 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 to a dental filling made of tooth-colored resin, a more natural-looking alternative with far greater biocompatibility.

Suffering From Sleep Apnea? Dr. Teja Can Help

Dr. Teja is a dentist who helps patients with sleep apnea, a condition in which the upper airway becomes blocked during sleep. Sleep apnea can lead to snoring, stops in breathing, gasping for air, and interrupted sleeping patterns. Serious health issues such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and depression can develop if sleep apnea is left untreated. Dr. Teja may offer treatment with the DNA Appliance® by Vivos, a biomimetic oral appliance that can ease or potentially eliminate your sleep disorder without surgery.

I loved loved loved my experience at the office today. I was extremely nervous to go in but everyone at the office made me feel so welcomed and taken care of. Veronica front/receptionist was extremely nice, caring, and was able to explain everything to me as far as billing and options for taking care of dental cost. Dr.Teja explained everything so very thoroughly to me. I’m excited, hopeful, optimistic for the dental plan he will be providing me. His dental assistant unfortunately do not have her name but her initials are AK(maybe) either way loved her and her vibe. She was so caring and explained everything she was doing. Overall experience was amazing. I recommend this office to anyone.thank you so very much for your service today.

Came here yesterday. Had a really bad tooth that needed to go. BTW first time having this done, didn't know what to expect. Thought it might be horrible. They took care of me here. Was a pretty tough surgical tooth extraction, as the tooth was getting brittle. I had procrastinated a long time. But Dr Teja got it done, and well. He used a P.R.F. tooth extraction trick. In this system he draws a little blood, throws it in a centrifuge (the spinny thing, sperates stuff), and puts all the good healing stuff inside the socket that's left empty from the tooth removal. It's been a little over 24 hours since at the time of writing this review. I feel pretty good. Almost zero swelling. Took two 500mg pain relief pills this morning. Just as a precaution before I left for work. Didn't really need them. Overall it was a great first experience for me. I will recommend Dr Teja to everyone I know. His assistant was great as well, she helped quell any nervousness I might have been showing at first. And the receptionist was very welcoming. As soon as I walked I already knew I was in the right spot.

I had a really good experience at Dr. Teja's office, he and his staff are amazing. I went there specifically to get the Mercury fillings removed because I wasn't sure if they were all removed by my previous dentist, so Dr. Teja told me that he will drill (explore) one tooth and see if I have Mercury still, and If I didn't he wouldn't need to drill the other 3 teeth. I think this is the kind of Dr we all need, that's sincere and makes you feel comfortable during this type of difficult procedure. Also, he is SMART certified which is so important when it comes to removes Mercury fillings in a safe way. I will recommend Dr. Teja to anyone in a heartbeat
