Corpus Christi Dentist Reviews

Derek J. Chang, DDS, Family Dentistry ExcellentDerek J. Chang, DDS, Family Dentistry5.0 Based on 132 reviews fromChris S. ★★★★★ Like most, I’ve never been a fan of the dentist. However Dr. Chang and his team were fantastic and made the experience quite enjoyable. Beautiful facility, comfortable waiting room (although I didn’t have to wait much at all) top of the line equipment, and an extremely nice staff. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.Victoria F. ★★★★★ Just had my first visit, and everyone was so nice! I was such a baby, but They were understanding, kind, and made sure constantly that I was ok. Very nice staff.Janet V. ★★★★★ Dr. Chang and his friendly staff were warm and made me feel comfortable. I felt no pain which is always a big plus and he explained his every move which puts you at ease. I felt that I was receiving the best care possible. My experience was positive and highly recommend Dr Chang for dentistry.Shirin D. ★★★★★ Best dentist I could ask for! Dental hygienist is a perfectionist especially. Other ones I had in the past were in a rush. Also, the other dentist I went to was pushy upselling sealants and floride. Glad to have found a quality place that accepts our insurance.Mary S. ★★★★★ I was so relieved when Dr Chang was able to replace my retainer/mouth guard and even more so when he didn't have to take impressions. His staff was able to scan my teeth and walked me through what to expect step by step. When my retainer/mouth guard came in, they fit great and were better quality than the ones I'd previously gotten from the orthodontist. His staff is friendly and professional, I highly recommend Derek Chang DDS for your dental needs!Stephanie S ★★★★★ THE FRIENDLIEST staff I have ever been around. I've been terrified of the dentist since I was a child. They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and calm. Dr. Chang was so kind and gentle and explained everything clearly.
