Dr. Elling, his assistant, the hygienist and the office staff are superior. They are attentive, reassuring, observant and thoroughly competent. I have visited them for a wide variety of dental issues, and in every instance they have provided superior service to me and my family. Persons I have referred to Dr. Elling have all praised the people in this office.

Worst experience EVER!!!! This dentist was the biggest PRICK I have ever met. I went in to get a tooth ache checked out, and without even asking me they bring me a paper to sign giving permission to extract a tooth. I'm 7 months pregnant so I just simply asked if I could get prescribed antibiotics for the tooth infection to simmer down before getting extracted and Dr Ellings response was "fine but don't come crying to me when your baby is born dumb and retarded". I WAS SPEECHLESS. I walked out crying and instead went to see Dr. Novak at Alamo heights orgal surgery. Dr Novak saved my day!!!!! NEVER GO TO FIESTA DENTAL!

My family stuck with Dr. Elling for over ten years, even when we moved to North Austin, we drove all the way to San Antonio for our checkups and treatment. The customer service at this office has become ABSOLUTELY horrible! He has NO regard for his long time patients and I am disgusted and disappointed in what has happened to his practice. This past week I sent my adult daughter for a minor procedure that is mostly covered by insurance and he SENT HER away because I forgot to give her the $65 co-pay. He has been our family dentist for YEARS and he has never gone unpaid. Because she could not reach me by phone for the credit card number, so he REFUSED to take care of a chipped tooth! Really, so much for loyalty...we are finding a Dentist who has some sort of respect for and appreciation for patient loyalty! I do NOT recommend this selfish office for treatment for anyone who expects to be treated like a person, not a walking income!

This is the first time in my life that I can actually say I look forward to going to the dentist. Every time I go, I get a happy and warm greeting, get to join in the fun conversation (which totally gets your mind off your dental work), and listen to good music that you can actually recognize and sing along to. I can't say enough about the entire team, but I moved about 15 miles away and cannot think of going to any other dentist, even though it is a long drive. I have been a patient of many dentists, and some were good, but none were the same as the experience you get from Dr. Elling and his team. Just go and experience this unusually friendly and fun team. You'll keep going back. Be ready to laugh at their fun jokes and conversations though.

About Hygienist: Jennifer is as highly recommended as Dr. Elling. She not just cleans my teeth, but educates me on different ways to maintain clean and healthy teeth. Be honest with her about the things you don't like to do to maintain your teeth, and she will recommend ways that might be better and more effective for you.

Dr. Elling and his staff are as upbeat as they are professional. You are greeted prompty upon arrival. The wait time is minimal. The dental hygenists are courteous, friendly, and yet still maintain their professional bearing. The office staff takes all the hassle out of insurance claims. Dr. Elling sets the example by being very friendly, very interested in listening, and very "human" -- not always a common trait upon doctors and dentists. Dr. Elling is fantastic about letting you know is you need a procedure now or if it can wait until later -- or perhaps not at all if the condition resolves itself. He doesn't hard-sell a costly procedure like some dentists. This can be a money-saving trait for the patient. So long as Dr. Elling is in practice, I shall be his patient.
