"Although I'm still having "denture issues" overall Fairfield Dental Care has serviced me very well. I met Dr. Celeste Mohr in 2013 at another dental facility. She went above & beyond what I expected for my dental needs. Three (3) years later (2016) I required dentures; went back to the office where I first met her but she was no longer there. I literally prayed that Dr. Mohr was still in the Houston area & still in the practice; my prayers were answered and I located her at Fairfield Dental Care. Dr. Mohr & the staff at Fairfield Dental Care have rendered friendly, courteous, professional and quality service from my initial visit through the present. I've never had a problem scheduling timely appointments, in fact, I've had the need to reschedule a few times and their understanding- of my mistake(s)- was far more than I expected, e.g., no additional fee(s) for cancellation, no attitudes,no penalty, etc. I have never experienced pain during my office visits nor have I ever had a long "wait time." Upon installation of my upper dentures to present, I've encountered some "fitting" issues - that I cannot attribute to Fairfield (perhaps the lab?). Be that as it may, the staff is continuously working with me to get this problem resolved. In essence, I would definitely recommend Fairfield Dental Care to my family & friends, as well as give them the highest rating for excellence in all catorgories."- K.J. / Google / Mar 20, 2017

A new set of dentures is usually needed about every five years.
