This article features the new Humble dentist and the new dental services the dental office now offers. It has been Dr. Gregory’s vision to build a dentist office in Humble Tx that offers all the dentist services a family would need in one office. This article by Clare Heekin Lynch outlines Dr. Gregory’s vision and how it has finally come to fruition. Now her office offers pediatric dentistry, family dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, Invisalign, dental implant and denture services with the added benefit that there are very few things that a patient would need to be referred out to a dental specialist for outside work. With all dental services offered in one location, patients are able to save time and money in their dental treatment.
By combining proven technologies and techniques with a gentle and caring approach, Houston Dental Implants, Family Dentistry, Oral Surgery & Periodontics brings you the high-tech benefits that comes with big city dentistry, combined with the warm, personal feeling you’d find in a small town. The doctors and staff will work hard to make you feel more comfortable and at ease during your treatment.
Meet the Doctors
Holly Gregory, DDS, MS specializes in oral surgery, the placement of dental implants, and the treatment of gum infection (periodontal disease). Through her practice, she offers start-to-finish dental implant care and implant maintenance work. Her practice also includes procedures like tooth extraction, gum recontouring, grafting, and non-invasive laser treatment of oral infections.
Dr. Gregory, a native Texan, graduated with a 4.0 from Texas A&M in the department of Biochemistry/ Biophysics and went on to be first in her class at Baylor College of Dentistry. She trained at one of the top residency programs in the country and is known for her strong and precise surgical skills as well as her gentle and calming demeanor. Dr. Gregory is committed to providing the kind of care to her patients that she would provide for her own family.
In an effort to expand her practice to help even more patients, Dr. Gregory is excited to finally announce the addition of Alisha Paal, DDS to her dental team. “Having Dr. Paal join our team allows us now to offer all-in-one services,” shared Dr. Gregory. “In addition to the cosmetic dentistry and oral surgery services that my staff and I were already providing, we will now offer orthodontics and general dentistry care as well.”
Dr. Paal earned her undergraduate degree in Neuroscience and her Doctor of Dental Surgery graduate degree at the University of Michigan. After completing dental school, she pursued a highly competitive general practice residency at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. “This residency enabled me to further refine my knowledge of complex surgical and aesthetic cases,” Dr. Paal said. In addition to her extensive educational background Dr. Paal is personally invested in global oral health, having traveled to both Guatemala and Kenya to promote oral health awareness and to research the barriers of access to care.
“Dr. Paal has a knack of connecting with her patients and putting them at ease. Her approach is comprehensive and patient tailored, and she works to make them comfortable by getting to know them,” continued Dr. Gregory. Dr. Paal agreed. “My favorite part of dentistry is building relationships with my patients and following them as they grow. I take pride in being very detail oriented as I take an aesthetic approach in my care through patience, time and the use of X-rays and photos so that you can easily see the difference in before and after treatment.”
State-of-the Art Technology and Caring Staff
Dr. Gregory is proud of the practice she has built and continues to grow. “My knowledgeable and warm staff sets patients at ease. We utilize techniques and procedures that make patients’ appointments stress free and their healing process rapid, successful, and comfortable,” the board-certified surgeon shared. The staff also advocates for patients with their insurance companies so that you don’t have to do the often-frustrating legwork.
Dr. Gregory utilizes magnification, lasers and 3D images to be able to place dental implants without any incisions, leading to rapid and very comfortable healing. Robotics procedures and imaging further allows her to give patients their new teeth the same day as their extractions are done in many cases. “We can talk to patients about our high-tech equipment, our lasers, and our robotics surgeries but, at the end of the day, the patient wants to know that they are getting the best quality care at the best price and that their healing isn’t going to be difficult. And that’s what they can expect to get here.”
A Variety of Services for Every Need
Sometimes a check-up and cleaning are all you need, but sometimes additional dental work is required, too. “Unlike most other dentistry practices in the area, we offer complete oral care from the surgical placement of an implant to teeth cleaning,” Dr. Gregory explained. This results in seamless patient care and optimal results. “A multi specialty practice gives our patients access to the best dentists in one convenient location and it allows Dr. Paal and me to concentrate on our individual specialties, while still working together as a team for excellent patient outcomes,” the doctor continued.
As an added convenience to their patients, Houston Dental Implants, Family Dentistry, Oral Surgery & Periodontics also boasts an in office lab technician who makes all implant and crown parts right there on the premises, and an in-house anesthesiologist. “We want to provide a positive lifelong relationship because it enhances the overall results of the care we offer. It’s a huge compliment to have our patients come back time and time again and refer family and friends. That is the reason we do what we do.”
From general dentistry and traditional orthodontics, to cosmetic periodontal surgery and “New Teeth in a Day” implants, the doctors will work together to help you achieve excellent oral health and a beautiful smile you will love. “We are confident that by providing an exceptional patient experience through top-quality dental care and comfort in a relaxing, low stress environment you will feel right at home,” said Dr. Gregory.
