Chris’s Story

Chris and Dr. Koo met each other in a rather unique situation. Chris was having a tooth removed by his general dentist, but it was proving to be very difficult, as the tooth had calcified and was splintering. Dr. Koo just so happened to be at the office, and the general dentist invited him to take over and finish the procedure. From that meeting, Chris began a journey that involved rebuilding the bone in the area and having a dental implant placed. While Chris certainly appreciates his new tooth, it’s Dr. Koo's willingness to help him that very first time without skipping a beat that sticks out in his mind.

Armando’s Story

Armando came to Piney Point for a second opinion because he didn’t like the treatment and options he received at other practices. Even for an experienced oral surgeon like Dr. Koo, he presented a pretty complicated case. He had a lot of asymmetries in his face, jaw, and bite, meaning that all would need to be corrected to give him the best result both functionally and cosmetically. To make this happen, Dr. Koo used advanced 3D imaging to create custom surgical guides for Armando. While he was thrilled with the result, the first thing that Armando talks about when remembering the experience was how Dr. Koo took the time to ask him about his goals and what he wanted out of the surgery. It made him feel like he was a part of the process rather than just an observer, and he knew right away that Dr. Koo was the person he could trust to provide what he needed.

Patrick’s Story

Patrick was originally referred by his general dentist. At the time, he was debating on getting veneers to improve his smile. Dr. Koo told him he had great natural teeth, but they were hiding behind his gums. Piney Point Oral Surgeons suggested crown lengthening instead. Patrick is very happy with the results.

Jeeta’s Story

Jeeta's longstanding trust in Piney Point Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery spans over three decades for both her family's needs and her recent personal battle with TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint), which required three extractions and dental implants. The expertise and compassionate care provided by Houston oral surgeons Dr. Koo and Dr. Shepherd showcased the pinnacle of patient care, making her feel uniquely valued. Their guidance led to a transformative improvement in Jeeta's condition, freeing her from pain and dietary restrictions. She affectionately refers to the team as her "Piney Point angels," highlighting their exceptional support and kindness. For Jeeta, this Houston oral surgery practice stands as a legendary beacon for anyone in need of oral health care, embodying professional excellence and patient-centered service.

Nesrine’s Story

Without a doubt, there is a direct connection between your oral health and your overall health. At the same time, we rarely get involved in life-threatening situations. In the case of Nesrine, we had to help her win two battles. First, Dr. Koo rid her body of a terrible, aggressive tumor that consumed half her jaw and placed a series of dental implants. Second, Dr. Klimowski restored the beauty and function of her smile by creating a set of dentures anchored to these implants. Our success enabled her to have the confidence she needs to live a happy, productive life as an attorney and mother of two, young children. Watch as Nesrine talks about her journey.

Kendall’s Story

In his 20s, Kendall was in an auto accident that proved to be devastating for his smile. Since the car wreck, Kendall has struggled with numerous oral health issues, including bone tissue deterioration, dental discoloration, and tooth loss. When Kendall made the choice to visit our team, we knew we had to help him restore a smile he was proud to share. Kendall decided to move forward with a dental implant supported denture procedure called All-on-5. This treatment allows us to maximize the naturally denser parts of the jaw to quickly, and comfortably recreate lost tooth structures. With just a few days of recovery and minimum discomfort, he said he was able to chew, speak, and smile confidently again. After treatment, Kendall said he felt like he was twenty years old again, and that’s an amazing gift we were able to provide.

Grant’s Story

When he first came to the Piney Point Dental Implant Center, Grant suffered from numerous damaged teeth and had even lost a tooth in the upper arch. Thanks to the expertise of Dr. Koo – who he regards as “probably one of the best surgeons in the city” – Grant was pleasantly surprised at how easily the entire process came together while he was getting his dental implants. He felt completely comfortable throughout his treatment, and today he can enjoy a beautiful, natural-looking smile.

Jason’s Story

Jason initially came to Dr. Koo’s oral surgery office for a wisdom tooth extraction. In the past, he’d been told by other dentists that he had a strangely large amount of bone in the bottom of his jaw, which could possibly contribute to sleep apnea. We let him know that we could handle the surgical removal of this bone, which would help alleviate his need for frustrating CPAP use. The surgery and his recovery went very smoothly, and he was finally able to sleep comfortably without the machine! Today, he’s grateful for how thoroughly and transparently our team explained the procedure to him so that he felt confident in moving forward.
