Dr. Max Teja

Poor oral health can lead to costly corrective procedures, and even critical health issues like heart disease. 

A quality dentist can help you maintain a healthy mouth and improve your overall health and well-being. 

Patients all around San Angelo, TX, trust holistic dentist Max Teja to take care of their teeth, gums, and oral health. 

What Sets Dr. Teja Apart?

Dental filling

Biocompatible Dentistry

Many common dental materials can cause adverse effects on the body. For example, the toxic metal mercury that is often used in silver amalgam fillings can harm your immune, urinary, cardiac, respiratory, and digestive systems. Dr. Teja has made a commitment to using safe biological materials. This method makes Dr. Teja's treatments biocompatible, mercury-free, metal-free, and non-toxic. If you have already received toxic mercury fillings elsewhere, Dr. Teja can replace and remove them with healthier alternatives.

Emergency Dentistry

When patients suffer from urgent dental needs, Dr. Teja and his team are ready to treat them with swiftness and compassion. He offers this service to relieve patient pain, preserve quality oral health, and reduce long-term dental costs, which can skyrocket when issues are left unchecked. Dr. Teja can take care of tooth damage, loss, bleeding, jaw pain, and more with procedures such as tooth extraction, root canal therapy, and dental crowns.

A World of Experience

Dr. Teja has practiced in Kenya, England, and at multiple locations he owned and operated here in Texas. Throughout his globe-spanning career, he has continuously learned advanced dental techniques. In San Antonio, he was accepted into the Implant Preceptorship, which at that time admitted just five students annually. His other training includes studying with world-renowned CEREC expert Dr. Robert Conrad, mini dental implant education, and extensive training on Lumineers® by Cerinate. 

Treating Texans for Over 30 Years

Dr. Teja was born in Kenya and began his dental studies at the prestigious King's College Hospital in London, but has been proud to call West Texas home since he graduated with honors in 1991 from the University of Texas Health Science Center. For over a decade, he operated a dental practice in Mason while he and his wife Karin raised their children. In 2005, the opportunity to open a practice in San Angelo presented itself to Dr. Teja, and the chance was too good to pass up. After two years of making sure their San Angelo office would live up to their exacting standards, the Tejas opened their doors and have treated locals like family ever since. 

Every year, Dr. Teja completes more continuing education than required by the State of Texas. As part of his ongoing commitment to the Texas community, Dr. Teja volunteers at health fairs with complimentary dental screenings for numerous organizations. His other involvements have included the Ballinger Rotary Club, American Heart Association, and the Lion's Club.
