The ENTIRE staff was wonderful. It’s more like walking into a spa rather than a dentist office! Never been treated so nicely at a Dr.’s office before. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable. I never felt like just another patient more like part of a team. I will for SURE be referring my friends and family. Thank you 5 Star Dental! You are more like infinity and beyond rock stars!
I just moved to San Antonio. I picked Dr. Carlson based upon a recommendation from my HOA referral page and from the information provided on his website. I felt at home immediately. Office staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Carlson is very thorough and explains the procedures in a step by step fashion. I have now had my initial visit / cleaning and a crown replacement. I am well pleased and
recommend Dr. Carlson to others.
I feel twenty years younger with my new smile. It did more for me than a facelift.
EVERYONE! Anyone who wants to “enjoy” getting their teeth cleaned (or having a dental checkup and/or dental work), MUST HAVE IT DONE HERE! Karen, Mary Jo, Beni and Dr. Carlson have been taking care of my teeth for a long time and I fly in from California twice a year to keep my teeth in excellent condition. This really is the BEST dental clinic in San Antonio!
I love them; they feel wonderful. I am getting so many compliments on my beautiful smile — for the first time in my life.
Overall experience was like none before. Everyone was so hospitable, friendly, personable, and kind. Thank you!!!
I received the most outstanding service from everyone at the office. I absolutely love my smile and Dr. Carlson.
Hygienist was amazingly welcoming! I love the staff and probably one of the best dental offices I’ve been to! I think this is definitely a place for anyone who is scared to go to the dentist. They make you feel at ease!
Everyone at the office was wonderful. Karen did a great job of cleaning my teeth. Mary Jo was very friendly. I saw Dr. Barnes and he was wonderful filling a cavity.
I would 5 Star Dental to everyone. They are professional, knowledgeable and caring. I have been coming to them for 26 years with my entire family… that should speak for itself.
I commute 90 miles to this office and that is the best statement how good it is. Very friendly and professional staff, newest equipment, great warm atmosphere plus a lot more. I simply love to go there.
I have been coming to Dr. Carlson for around 15 years. I enjoy walking into the office and being greeted by such friendly front office staff. Each person that enters 5 Star Dental Group leaves feeling as if they just finished having coffee with a friend and not like they are leaving a dental appt.
Dr. Carlson and his staff are simply best of the best. When you walk into the office reception area you know you’re in a first-class environment — it speaks quality and professionalism, and that’s the level of care you’re provided.
Dr. Carlson and his staff are wonderful. I have been going there for several years and I just love the whole team over there!!!! They are caring and make you feel so welcomed!! Love, love, love, them. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Carlson to anyone!
I’ve been going to Dr. Carlson and his team for over 10 years now because they are amazing. Their hygienists are great, I’ve never had to wait, everything is like clockwork. Over the years I’ve had a crown and multiple fillings performed by Dr. Carlson, and every time the experience has been quick and painless. I would recommend 5 Star Dental to anyone!
Dr. Carlson and his staff have taken care of all my dental needs (and my wife’s) for over 15 years. They do everything right and I always leave after an appointment knowing I’ve had the best attention and care that can be provided.
I’ve been going to Dr Carlson since I was young, so I’ve never understood why some people don’t like going to the dentist. I can honestly say I have never experienced any pain, but rather quite the opposite! They provide top of the line dental care and customer service!! I look forward to my visits!
