La Vernia Family Dentistry – Dr. Simmons

La Vernia family dentist, Mark Simmons DDS, offers complete family dental services to all patients starting at age 3. Since 1985, Dr. Simmons has been practicing family dentistry and splitting his time between San Antonio and La Vernia offices. Recently, however, Dr. Simmons has opened his La Vernia location full time and is serving the community with complete family and cosmetic dentistry services. Dr. Simmons has extensive training, including more than 500 hours of post-dental education which gives him the knowledge to treat most cases both simple and complex.

Our La Vernia family dental practice caters to the needs of all patients, ensuring that they are comfortable and relaxed. Understanding that good oral hygiene habits are formed early in life, our entire staff strives to make sure that children are calm and content at the office. Our dental team believes that positive personal interaction between patients and staff is essential during early childhood, which means we make every effort to ensure each child feels welcome and at home.

The office waiting room is welcoming, and our staff is friendly. Questions are greeted with smiles and answers. Dental procedures are explained thoroughly in an effort to keep patients informed and relaxed. When working with children, the staff at our La Vernia family dental practice uses examples appropriate for the patient’s age.

A primary focus of our office and staff is the provision of good oral hygiene. Dr. Simmons makes a conscious effort to explain to children the proper way to brush their teeth, how to floss, and the proper way to rinse their mouth. In addition, good nutrition is explained to encourage children to make healthier choices when snacking.

Setting the stage for years of healthy smiles, our La Vernia family dental practice focuses on providing comprehensive dental care that begins with prevention. While good oral hygiene habits are stressed, sealants and fluoride treatments are also available for patients who need or want an extra level of protection.

Dr. Simmons offers a wide selection of dental procedures including teeth cleanings, dental exams, x-rays, sealants, fillings, as well as more advanced dentistry. His many years of experience with family dentistry in the La Vernia community have afforded him the pleasure of watching his patients and their families grow.

Please feel free to call for an appointment or schedule one online today. We look forward to seeing you and your whole family smile.
