Don’t Just Take Our Word for It. Here’s What Our Patients are Saying

“Dr. Krell and his team are wonderful. I would recommend him to anyone I know, and strangers alike, simply because he is exceptional at what he does. I first came to Dr. Krell about 5 years ago, when I needed a crown after a root canal on a tooth that the endodontist did not even believe could be saved. Dr. Krell did amazing work and the crown is still doing well. I've been back for my preventative care ever since.” Layne T. Houston, TX

“My family has been involved with this practice for fifteen years and we have had an excellent experience. Dr. Krell and his staff make conservative decisions regarding long term care and continue to be thoughtful about future dental concerns. Dr. Krell is thoughtful and listens well as regards patient needs. Highly recommend. Also, very good place for children's dentistry.” Charlott C. Houston, TX

“I've been to many dentists in my life because I've had to move about in my training. Being in the medical field myself, you recognize quality medical care. Dr. John Krell is the consummate professional. He's also a good guy, down to earth and fun. He and his staff are pleasant, quick and efficient. I love the technology they have on site, especially the 3D videos and modeling, as well as the on-site crowns. I couldn't recommend them any higher. Good folks on all levels.” Clayton M. Houston, TX

Frequently Asked Questions


How often should I schedule a dental exam?

It’s important to schedule a regular dental check-up and professional cleaning at least every six months, or twice a year. This allows us to eliminate any plaque or bacteria built-up in difficult places your toothbrush can’t reach. Dental exams also prevent further oral health issues, like cavities, gum disease, and even tooth loss.


When should children have their first dental visit?

It’s recommended that you schedule your child’s first dental visit around the age of four to six months old. During this time, children’s primary (baby) teeth become erupted, or when they begin to show through the gum line. Their first visit is focused on educating children on the importance of good oral hygiene and how to properly take care of their teeth at home.


I’m afraid of the dentist. How can you help?

Dr. Krell and our highly trained team will do everything they can to ensure each patient feels comfortable while visiting our Houston, TX dental office. When you enter our office, you’ll be greeted with warmth, compassion, and friendliness. We offer sedation dentistry to maximize your comfort and help you feel completely worry-free.


What can I do to maintain good oral health?

To maintain the health of your teeth and gums, it’s important to use a soft-bristled brush at least twice a day, floss regularly, and rinse in between meals. You should also schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings at least every six months, or twice a year. This allows us to help eliminate any built-up plaque or bacteria, and prevent cavities, gum disease, and more.

Thorough Dental Checkups & Refreshing Cleanings

Even when you brush and floss well at home, some oral health problems can develop in subtle and dangerous ways. You need the ongoing support of a trusted dental team to ensure that your smile stays strong and healthy over the years, and our Houston practice is more than up to the challenge. A comprehensive dental examination will allow us to pinpoint any concerns at their earliest stages, while a professional hygiene session will eliminate decay-causing plaque and tartar, leaving the teeth wonderfully refreshed.

CROWNS & Bridges Fix Your Smile

When your teeth aren’t at their best because of injury, decay, or even total loss, everyday life can become a little more difficult. Thankfully, Dr. Krell can replenish what’s missing in a reliable and lifelike manner with dental crowns or bridges. Crowns are meant to rebuild and revitalize individual teeth, while bridges work to “bridge” the gap left by missing teeth with sturdy replacements. These restorations are custom-made for each individual patient and designed to be an ideal match alongside the rest of your natural smile.
