Dr Teja and his staff are the best!! I chose San Angelo Smiles because I wanted a Holistic dentist to remove a mercury filling properly and take care of a cavity. In addition to those things, they found I had impaired mouth syndrome/sleep apnea. I’ve seen so many doctors and sleep apnea never crossed their minds. This ended up being the root cause of most of my health problems-fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue, crohn’s, and hormone imbalance. Definitely recommend!!

It is nice to have a holistic dentist in town. Before, I had to travel. The staff is very kind and Dr.Teja is a skilled man doing good work for people in need. My wisdom tooth had a cavity and he filled it. I thought it would need extracted but he showed me the tooth is still healthy. They made sure to give me focused care and scheduled me as the last patient of the day. I look forward to visiting again! Holistic dentistry is the only one you can trust to do the job well and proper with your well-being and safety in mind. I will recommend San Angelo Smiles to everyone I know who needs work done on their teeth!

Our Featured Procedures

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea can impact your quality of life and put you at risk for cardiovascular issues and more. The search for the right treatment can be difficult, but not if you have a trained professional on your side. Our doctor is an experienced sleep dentist who can identify the cause of your sleep apnea by examining how your teeth, mouth, sinuses, and throat are affecting your airway. He can provide treatment with a custom oral appliance that gently opens your airway and allows you to enjoy restful sleep once again.

Emergency Dentistry

Dental pain or trauma like a knocked-out tooth can be overwhelming. Our practice in San Angelo, TX, offers emergency appointments to alleviate your pain and restore your smile as soon as possible. 

Explore Emergency Dentistry


Missing most or all of your teeth can make it difficult to eat or speak, greatly affecting your quality of life. Dr. Teja can help by crafting custom dentures to fill in the gaps or replace an entire dental arch. By restoring your oral function and appearance with dentures, you can eat the foods you love, speak with confidence, and love your smile once more.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a ceramic shell that fits over a tooth following root canal therapy or treatment for damage. The crown provides strength and protection to preserve the tooth's structure and restore its function and appearance. Thanks to our CAD/CAM technology, we can design and fabricate custom crowns in just one office appointment.

Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART)

When removing silver amalgam dental fillings, Dr. Teja uses the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) technique to minimize your risk of exposure to harmful mercury vapors. He can then replace the silver filling with a tooth-colored resin. This is a natural-looking alternative with greater biocompatibility.

Kind Words From Our Patients "I will recommend Dr. Teja to anyone in a heartbeat"

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. 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
