Welcome to 5 Star Dental! We’re a family-owned dental practice in San Antonio, Texas. Dr. Craig Carlson has been committed to helping patients maintain healthy and beautiful smiles for over 40 years.

With decades of experience and knowledge to draw from, our team strives to provide excellent dental care and education in a comfortable environment.
We believe that going to the dentist should be an enjoyable experience. A warm, inviting reception area, a caring team, and all the comforts of home are just a few things you’ll find when you visit our office.

We pride ourselves on establishing trust with our patients and providing the very best dental care that San Antonio has to offer. Find out more about how our office is different here.
We know what a new smile means to you — it’s the confidence that comes from looking younger and feeling better about yourself, or the freedom to laugh, smile, and talk to others without having to cover your mouth from embarrassment. Dr. Craig Carlson is an expert cosmetic dentist and master ceramist, having spent over 40 years perfecting his cosmetic dentistry craft. With our in-house lab and custom cosmetic dentistry process, you will be involved every step of the way. We’ve seen porcelain veneers change the lives of so many of our patients over the years (you can even read their testimonials here). You don’t have to live with the embarrassment of cracked, discolored, misshapen, or crooked teeth with the help of cosmetic dentistry. We can’t wait to find out how a new smile will change your life.
We can determine a lot about the state of your health by taking a peek inside your mouth. Regular dental cleanings and checkups are essential to your health. It’s recommended to have regular dental cleanings at least twice per year. Our skilled dental hygienists use the latest technology to ensure that your mouth stays healthy and clean. In addition to gentle teeth cleanings, we offer Oral ID oral cancer screening, laser-assisted dental hygiene, same-day crowns, and the most knowledgeable, loyal team in San Antonio.
“The entire staff is so friendly, and even ask follow-up questions about previous conversations from previous appointments (how is your dog doing since he was sick? Did you get that project done at work?), which is almost unheard of anymore. They treat their patients like family and you can feel entirely comfortable knowing that the well-being of your teeth and mouth are in this team’s hands! Thank you 5 Star Dental!” – Caitlin Y
