Monarch Dental is always amazing! Everyone is helpful from the front office to the dentists and assistants. They even let us wait inside for a tow truck to come for my dead battery after our appointment.

This was my first visit to a new office after my dentist of 24 years retired. I was nervous but it was one of the most pleasant experiences I have ever had at a dental office. From the x-ray technician to the dental assistants and the dentist. She was clear in her plan of action and describing clearly what and why it must be done. Of course, dental work isn't cheap and I thank God, I have insurance. The dental hygienist, Cindy, was the best hygienist I have ever had and I am 60 years old. She was upbeat, checked up on me repeatedly and was so caring, considerate, professional and I will request, every time, to have her services. Very pleased with my care, the office and the staff. Kudos to you all.

I've been coming to this location for a number of years & have been quite happy with the service provided.The staff AND the Dentist are super nice. They are all very friendly, and you're made to feel like a welcomed guest, not a patient. Waiting room wait time is not long. Thank you Monarch, for all you do.

They saw me very last minute on a Friday because I had a broken permanent retainer and was going on a cruise the next day. I have never been here before until today but let me say this will be my regular dentist going forward. Their orthodontist wasn't in today so their general dentist is the one who fixed my retainer. From the dental assistant who took my xrays, I wish I caught her name, from the dental assistant who assisted with the retainer (Her name was Stacy and was THE BEST! Made me feel very comfortable and was fun to talk to) to the dentist and the front desk team was TOP NOTCH. Thank you so much for fixing my retainer when my regular ortho couldn't.

The dental hygienist at the Forum location cleaned my teeth and made sure to tell me teeth what she was going to do next. She was so nice and professional, even have me dental tips even though my teeth were pretty clean before I came in. She just like the rest of the staff are and were amazing. I always recommend you to my friends.

I had my reservations about going to Monarch Dental as it is a chain. Not a private practice. I have always had a private practice dentist..well everyone at the office was amazing. I was even a little rude to Rachel when she called back to schedule my appointment. Well I got three teeth done in one day. Everyone works as a team there. I will be keeping them for future appts. !

I was scared out of my mind to get 3 teeth pulled and a root canal with a crown😩 also I didn’t have much money. They had in house financing and ended up getting me approved for 2000 with bad credit I paid $110 down and $259 monthly for 8 months which my loan will only accumulation $90 interest total 😁 got my work down the same day and it was really 10 times better than I expected because man when I tell you I was traumatized from an experience I had 5 years ago. Best And Most Affordable Office I've been too

I have always severe pain with my teeth my entire life. Only up until recently was I able to afford dental care services. I've always been nervous to deal with a dentist, out of fear they would shame me. And, I came during the pandemic, so I felt even more nervous. As soon as I came into the office, this team's took the right measures to make sure the environment was safe. My dentist and her assistants were so friendly and inviting. They made me laugh so much, and I felt so much more comfortable. The procedures that I've gotten over the course of this month have been so easy, that my anxiety over the situation went away completely. Over the course of my visits I had 11 fillings, 2 root canals, and a cleaning done. Every single procedure was pain-free and I left the office feeling so much better with my teeth. I now have no sensitivity and am so happy with the results. I would recommend this office to anyone who may feel anxiety about these kinds of situations. I had a great experience and plan to make this my permanent dental office.

Staff was amazing. I have severe anxiety, especially when the dentist is involved. I haven’t been to a dentist in about 8 years and needed quite a lot of work done. They comforted me without judgement when I had an emotional breakdown in the chair. Not once did they make me feel embarrassed at the condition of my teeth. They were able to start treatment the same day and I’m currently 2/3 of the way done with my treatments and it’s been about 1 week. Thank you Monarch for making the experience less stressful and for the kindness you showed me and continued to show me. Over all it was a great experience and I will recommend this place to everyone/anyone who asks! I’m not embarrassed to smile anymore!

Monarch dental went really well. Not only were the staff very courteous and professional, but they got me in and out in a very timely manner. The place is very clean and organized. It also have a very homey feeling as well. They help formulate an affordable dental plan that way I can get my teeth fixed or cleaned and won’t break the bank. When I got my first wisdom tooth extracted. The staff made sure that I was comfortable and that I was okay. They even did a follow up the following morning to make sure that I’m okay. I look forward to visiting them soon the get more work done.

Ok, where do I begin...I will with Lissa Valdez, the word Amazing doesn't begin to explain this woman! Lissa was beyond helpful in every encounter I've had with her was very detailed, heartfelt and welcoming. Lissa not only explained the break down of my payment process but she did more than required to ensure that both of my dental companies paid the max for my recent procedure that cost $9,800.00 yes you read that correct. my Portion was a little over $900.00. But wait I am not finished I couldn't convey my worries about my smile the correct way however she understood and was able to inform both the General Doctor and the Ortho Doctor (Dr. Shaw) of my concerns in turn the Monarch Dental team came up with a solution that benefits me now and later. I wish I had everyone name I worked with from my procedure yesterday to my upcoming appointment for braces w/Dr. Shaw, I look forward to working with everyone here again. I've enrolled my entire family at this location, regardless of where I move to in San Antonio I will not transfer from this location, the drive will be well worth it every time. I recommend everyone that's interested in a entire knowledgeable and friendly staff searching for a dental home make this location your families dental home. Heads Up- I am going to update this review with the names of everyone I worked with just incase anyone is interested in the General Doctor her Dental Hygienists (by the way they were amazing together)!

I have been coming here for probably 3 or more years. I did not take good care of my teeth for much of my life, so that caught up with me and I’ve unfortunately had to have a lot of work done. Going to the dentist is inherently not fun, but the people here make it as good as it can possibly be. I have never had an unpleasent experience at this dentist. Everyone is friendly, they always work with your schedule and needs, and do top-notch work - whatever that work may be. I’ve had a root canal, multiple fillings, cleanings, etc... and each time it is the same, always great. Thank you Monarch Dental at the forum and all the folks that work to make this place great.

I had a very enjoyable and informative visit, My first with Monarch Dental office at the FORUM in Selma on Feb. 06, 2018. The whole. TEAM was very friendly, compassionate and informative during My visit. From the receptionist (Aracely), to the Dental assistant/X-ray technician (Alicia). The Dentist, (Areej Alankar) was especially responsive and compassionate in her manor, I also must add that (Alissa) the patient benefits counselor, was very informative and compassionate to My specific situation!. All in all I rate the warm and invitingly friendly atmosphere during My visit with Monarch Dental at the FORUM in Selma Texas was a 10+ on a scale of 1-10 . I look forward to having them help Me together during My following visits and further dental treatments. Sincerely, Kendall C. Miner.

I went in last Thursday for an infection under a pre-molar. They did an ex-ray and exam and discovered that the tooth was cracked and need to be extracted. The young dentist that did the extraction was great. After the tooth was extracted, the area was prepared for a future bridge or implant. I did not experience any pain or infection following this event and left the office feeling quite satisfied. However, during the extraction process, the tool used to extract the tooth slipped and fairly forcefully hit one of my teeth in the front that were previously capped. The dentist asked if I was OK and I didn't think there was any problem. Following their instructions, I ate soft food and did not brush or floss until the next afternoon. As I was gently flossing, a portion of the tooth that was hit broke off and ended up going down the drain. No pain, just an ugly gap right in the middle of the teeth. They were closed during the weekend so I had to wait until Monday (today) to go in. They squeezed me in among their regular appointments and the same dentist looked at the tooth and current and previous ex-rays. She did not think the contact between the tooth and instrument caused the problem but knew that I needed to have it fixed. The manager came in showing me a proposed bill that was reduced from their regular charge for a crown. I complained about being charged for an accidental mistake by the dentist and asked if they could do something a little better. I fully expected that I would have to pay for the material (new crown and items required) but was really surprised when the manager came back with a big "N/C" over the lined out previous cost! They did the prep work for the crown immediately and again the dentist showed her skill by doing an excellent job while still working on other patients with appointments. I left the office with a temporary crown and will be going back in three weeks to have the permanent one set. "WOW!," is all that I can say. If you need any dental work, I would certainly recommend them to anyone. They really did a great job for me. THANK YOU!!!!!!!

I had a GREAT experience at this Monarch location. The staff are all very helpful and accommodating. Lisa set me up with a treatment plan and was VERY helpful and not pushy at all. She was very understanding and made everything so clear and simple. Dr. Alankar is honestly the most compassionate doctor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They made sure I was okay during every step of my procedure. I had 12 cavities filled, 2 crowns done, and a root canal. During all of this Dr. Alankar always made sure I was comfortable and not in any pain. She is THEE BEST!! This location if full of kind and smiling faces and I totally recommend them to anyone needing work!
