“I have been a patient of Dr. Chu’s dental practice for two years. I had jumped around from dentist to dentist for years before coming to Dr. Chu. I reached out to Dr. Chu after I cracked two old fillings. I was in tremendous pain and I was terrified! I am a giant chicken about dentists but the people in his office went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. This group is – hands down – the BEST dental practice in San Antonio. The staff are friendly and professional. The La Cantera location even has a therapy dog! I cannot write enough wonderful things about how kind everyone is. If you are new to San Antonio or just searching for a new dentist, I strongly recommend Dr. Chu and his staff. They are incredible!!”

“Absolutely loved La Cantera Dental. Waited less than 10 minutes, the entire staff was extremely efficient and friendly. Warned me that my x-rays may not be covered (since I already got them done this year at another practice) before actually doing the x-rays and let me choose if I wanted to proceed with them. Really appreciate the upfront honesty and no surprise bill! Having control over my health is great. I recommend this place to everyone.”

“La Cantera dental is amazing! I had been going to the same dentist for 15 years + and seen the same dentist and hygienist who were amazing as well. They stopped taking my insurance so I had to switch which is always a bit on the intimidating side. I worked with Dr. Schroeder previously at another dental office so I was comfortable but still skeptical at the same time. It’s just always hard switching to new doctors for everyone. I went in with an issue on one certain tooth that my previous dentist I was going to looked at and said there was nothing wrong so I went on my way. I went and saw Dr. Schroeder and he fixed it right away with no problems and the tooth pain is now gone! He’s definitely magical and made me feel so much better ! Also Shannon the hygienist I saw at the office is amazing my teeth never felt so clean ! I highly recommend this office! The whole staff is amazing! Also Sarah the assistant was a pleasure as well and super sweet! A++ for this office”

“Shannon is, by far, the best hygienist our family has ever had. With 4 kids, that’s saying a lot! We all love her. ”

“Dr. Schroeder and his Team are FANTASTIC. Could not ask for better service or treatments. Dr. Schroeder is VERY patient as is his staff.
They work with your insurance and help you make decisions that will have the best outcome for your teeth. No high pressure sales jobs here.”

“I rarely encounter a dental office that is friendly. But now I have! It was so easy to schedule my sons first appt to consult with Dr. Chu. The reception staff, nursing, and Dr were all friendly & super helpful. It’s always stressful when we have to meet a new Dr to add to our long roster of Drs for my son but I am happy with this group & looking forward to having my sons dental work done by such an amazing team.”

“My husband and I are over the moon with Dr. Chu’s Dental practice La Cantera Dental. We fell in love with Macie on the yelp reviews and wanted to met her in person. The moment we were introduced to Macie her sweet loving eyes transformed our surrounds to a warm and loving family environment. Mrs. Chu is a graceful and caring friend open to hearing all about our experiences!!We highly recommend the marvelous duo Dr. Parra and Olivia his dental hygienist!!! They both go out of the way to make sure you feel comfortable and most importantly they take the time to listen to all of your concerns. Jeanette is radiant and thoughtful when preparing the dental estimates and scheduling future appointments!!! The new technology in the office and videos on the websites that can be played on our Apple TV after a procedure to help inform yourself and the people caring for you is so ingenious!!! Make an appointment and you will not be disappointed!!!”

Angelica G.

“For some reason my last review stopped showing up, so let’s try again.
The staff is friendly and they always try to make sure I get the treatment plan I need balanced with what I want. Jeannette, the office manager, is like a diligent warrior for her customers staying on the insurance companies to pay their fair share. Oh and Mrs. Chu walks around with the fluffy puppy for anyone who is uncomfortable to hold while they get their dental work done! Dr. Chu seems very good at what he does and can do a tooth pull in no time!”

Lee B.

“I highly recommend this place for anyone who is afraid of the dentist and, frankly, for anyone who isn’t! I have a serious phobia of the dentist after a few bad experiences in my life and had put off getting a cleaning for longer than I should have. La Cantera Dental offers sedative dentistry for scaredy cats like me, and they also cater to special needs patients of all ages. At my first visit the hygienist made me feel relaxed and at ease, as did all the other folks in the office. After my cleaning and x-rays, I was told that I needed to have some work done, so I came back a few weeks later to see Dr. Schroeder for some fillings and to have an old crown replaced. Dr. Schoeder has a superb bedside manner (for lack of a better term) and made me feel comfortable right away. He was so patient with me and made sure that I wasn’t feeling any pain at any point during my time in the chair. Not only is he patient, he is an artist and obviously cares about his canvas! He made sure that my crown was fitted to perfection, and after living with a mediocre crown in that spot for 10 years, my new crown feels like a natural tooth. I could not be happier with the service or the product.”

Victoria A.

“I absolutely adore Dr. Chu and his staff! I just recently had my wisdom teeth extraction at La Cantera Dental. Dr. Chu has such a warm and caring personality and the ladies there are so friendly and helpful. Oral surgery can be scary but Dr. Chu was so attentive and answered all my questions and concerns. Jeanette was so helpful in the weeks prior to my procedure, making sure everything was prepared for me. Dr. Chu and his staff went above and beyond to make me comfortable on the day of my surgery. I had zero pain and zero fear!
I highly recommend Dr. Chu and La Canteral Dental!”

“We are building a home in Boerne and I’d like to establish nearby doctors/dentists. We are in San Marcos in an apartment since moving here from Calif in Sept. I made an appt with Dr Chu in February for today. I was out at the mall near the office when I called and texted trying to get help finding the office. No one would answer. After going in and filling out paper work I was told by an assistant I would see a different dentist. I am used to Scripps Dental in LaJolla, Calif, where I was always treated respectfully and efficiently. None of that was to be found here. The staff really lacks congeniality, efficiency and are on the whole disrespectful. What a disappointment. I had to leave finally.”

Phyllis C.

“I can’t thank the staff and especially Janet enough for all her help she was AMAZING took the time to talk with me and also very friendly and professional. It didn’t matter how many times I called she was there with the most positive attitude. Again thank you soooooo much Janet”

Brandi M.

“I love this dentist office. Dr. Chu is the best dentist in San Antonio. His goal is to make sure you have a healthy mouth all around. He isn’t all about cosmentics. He wants overall health then he will worry about what they look like. He is honest, affordable and just a good person. His staff is just as awesome. They love working for him too and you can tell. He has people that are there for years. You won’t see a new receptionist each time you go. You will see Denise. If you get your teeth cleaned unless one of them has a baby or moves away you will get the same person cleaning your teeth for many years. I was recommended by a friend to come here and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I love this place.”

D C.

“I just want to let everyone that la Cantera dental group makes you feel like a family member from the time you walk in its time to leave my son and I really talk this place up I tell all my friends and family about how great this group is . Thanks for all you guys do . Thanks James Garza”

Helise Mack

“So happy to have found La Cantera Dental. Dr. Chu and Dr. Schroeder are amazing. State of the art technology and excellent personal service. Going to the dentist has actually become an awesome experience!!!”

Heidi S.

“Entire staff was super friendly. It felt like family. Best cleaning I’ve had in my life! My teeth feel A-mazing!”

Debbie T.

“The receptionist was very accommodating as I did not have much availability for appointments. They were able to take me in with late notice. I’m happy that there was ample parking!”

Jennifer L.

“I had an extreme phobia of dental work for 23 years, and Dr. Chu knew how to handle it. He just let me make my own choices on my own time. He changed my life, and I will be forever grateful!”
