My name is Yaneth, my mom was a single mom to 6 kids. My sister and I were both born in Mexico and were brought over without proper documentation. We have since then become legal residents of the United States but growing up we had a lot of challenges because we didn't have proper documentation. We couldn't get Medicaid because that was only offered to legal residents/citizens so we went without medical checkups or dental checkups all through out our childhood. I remember when I was 19 I got a really bad toothache. I had never had a toothache that bad, I think that's when all my dental problems started. My mom gave me Tylenol and that was the end of it. Dentist nowadays are so expensive, and they will only finance you if you're working a good job with great pay. So going to a dentist wasn't an option for me. With time my teeth took a real beating. My molars were full of cavities and some had already pieces missing and my front tooth had started to chip. As a woman it was embarrassing sometimes to even smile. One night I'm at home and I get that same awful pain I had when I was 19. The pulling on your nerves pain. It was a Friday night and I knew I had to just ride it out with over the counter medicine until I could get it fixed. At this point I had already had a few molars pulled at the University of Texas where they charge 45. It was cheaper to pull them than to fix them. But this molar was in the front. I knew I HAD to get it treated. I started Googling "Charity dentist" "Cheap dentist" "Pro Bono Dental Work". Some names came up and I Facebooked stalked them. I sent a bunch of messages to a lot of different dentist. Only one responded and that was Dr. David Hassid. He asked me what day I would be available to go to his office, he said he would do my exam and xrays for free and we could then talk about pricing. He also told me the most important thing to do was to get me out of pain as soon as possible. I couldn't believe! I was finally going to get my first dental checkup at 31. He scheduled me for that following Thursday. I went in and his dental assistant came out and greeted me. I was first taken aback with the office. I had never seen a prettier dentist office. It didn't feel like a dentist. And I was going to get my check up there!! He came in, he introduced himself and started doing my check up. He got xrays, took pictures, and poked around a little. He then told me I would need this and that and this and that and all I heard was $$$$$$$$$$$$$$. He said he could go ahead and pull one of the molars that needed to be pulled out that day. He said whatever I was able to pay that day it was fine, he would do a invoice and then give me a discount. My bill was around 5,500. He brought it down to 3100. And on top of that he gave me an opportunity to pay it in pymts. Since then he pulled 3 teeth, he did a root canal and crown, he did about 7 fillings, and he fixed my chipped tooth. It has been about 2 years of me going to him. My son now sees him as well. I cannot and will not ever be able to sing him enough praises for being the type of person he is. He is caring, he treats you with dignity, his whole office is just awesome. He does a lot of other charity work as well. He helps at Houston's Food Bank, he helps at animal shelters. He is just awesome! There are no words to describe Dr. Hassid. He helps you in any way he can and I just want other people to know about this hidden Houston gem we have. If you're ever in Houston and need dental work, don't hesitate to call Dr. Hassid.
