From booking your appointment, to teeth cleaning and other in-office consultations (such as Zoom Whitening and/or InvisAlign), to checkout, the entire team at River Oaks Dental is knowledgeable and professional. I have never enjoyed going to the dentist as much until I met Dr. Testa’s twam! 5 stars all the way!

Dr. Testa is very nice with great bedside manner. She is also very meticulous about her work. Very few people take pride in their work, but she has old school values that exude excellence!

The River Oaks Dental Arts Team is the Best of the Best. Their customer service is as much of an Art as their Dentistry. We drive our 7yo daughter from The Woodlands, she loves her visits. My wife and I have been patients for 10+ years. ??

Excellent staff! Always friendly, responsive, and prompt. Never have to wait and very accommodating when making or changing appointments. The clinic is clean and comfortable. Highly recommend Dr. Testa and her staff. Kudos to Nadia for excellent dental cleanings! Thank you for your great service.

I cried at my last appointment due to my depression and anxiety. They had never seen me like that. They treated me with a lot of care and even talked about depression with me and shared their personal stories having to do with depression. I would never expect that from a dentist office. I will keep coming here for years to come.

I highly recommend Dr.Testa - she is extraordinary on so many levels: I love the veneers she created for me. And I love her gold-standard, cutting edge approach to dental care, I have gone to her for my beautiful veneers and superb dental care for 15 years. She and her great team are a joy. Because of Dr Testa I really love my smile. Thank you so much!
