Dr. Febres and her staff are very friendly. My kids never have a problem going to the dentist because they treat them very well. Their ages are 12, 10 and 6 and we have been going since my oldest was 2 years old. They love the rainforest theme at the office. Even though we are no longer nearby, I willingly drive the 30+ it takes me to get there

Dr. Febres makes the sometimes nerve-wracking trip to the dentist fun and easy! I've been a patient with Dr. Febres for years. She always makes me feel comfortable and treats everyone with respect and kindness. The office is beautiful and highly decorated. I definitely recommend Dr. Febres!

Dr Febres unfortunately has a jarring bedside manner completely uncharacteristic of a 'pediatric' dentist which made my children uncomfortable and anxious. She seems to follow the foreign model where decisions are made by herself alone as the final authority as opposed to the American model of valuing the patient's input. Additionally she is very forceful in pushing a overtly monetary agenda. Despite being out of network we will return to Klein Family Dentists who are true professionals.

Dr Febres is the BEST pediatric dentist! She has seen my kids at least twice a year since 2007, preventing any cavities and teaching us to improve teeth care. My son also had an accident where he broke his front tooth in half. Dr Febres repaired it as an emergency procedure and his tooth looks perfect, as if it were fully natural. I recommend Dr Febres to all my friends. She is highly professional, courteous and a pleasure to talk to.

Excellent dentist and staff. My kids have been patients of Doctor Febres for 9 and 6 years and we couldn't go anywhere else. We drive one hour to get here because they make us feel that we are getting the best care. My kids are not afraid to come to the dentist because they have made all our visits comfortable and stress free.

I have grown up going to Dr. Febres' office. Ever since I was little she has taken care of my teeth. She is kind, patient, and funny. As a child, I adored visiting the beautifully decorated office. I was always excited to go to the dentist because I got a prize at the end and all the staff made me feel so great about myself. Now I am in college pursuing a degree in the health field. Dr. Febres has helped me explore different lines of work within the dental field as well as other medical fields.

First and foremost the welcoming smiles of all the staff. My Children loved the way the dental hygienist work them through every process and enjoy their conversation while cleaning. For me as a parent while at Dr. Febres, I feel that sense of genuine care for the health of my children's' dental hygiene by the way she spends each time with every child after cleaning.
