Artaza Dental is dedicated to providing the community of Katy, Texas, with high-quality oral health care. The private practice’s founder, Hugo Artaza, DDS, has worked as a dentist in Katy for more than 40 years. Dr. Artaza and his team truly feel a connection to the city of Katy and strive for excellence in every aspect, with the highest technology in dental care.

As a general dentistry practice, Artaza Dental delivers comprehensive preventive and restorative care through regular or periodontal teeth cleanings, crowns and bridges, and even dental implants. Dr. Artaza is experienced in oral surgery, can place dental implants robotically, and perform bone and tissue grafts from the comfort of his office. Dr. Artaza is always looking for the best route of care for his patients and offers over-the-top treatment for all dental situations. For all of his patients enduring a surgical procedure, Dr. Artaza will offer additional therapeutic procedures to enhance the healing process. A few include PRF- Platelet Rich Fibrin in the location an oral surgery is performed and a diode laser for any area needing periodontal or surgical treatments. 

Effectively performing oral surgery and other complex procedures requires the right technology and equipment. That’s why Artaza Dental has invested in the PreXion 3D Excelsior CBCT Scanner, which procedures panoramic 3-D images of a patient’s underlying tooth-supporting structures, including bone and gum tissue.

A true perfectionist, Dr. Artaza isn’t satisfied until his patients are happy with their treatment results. Whether patients come to Artaza Dental for KöR® teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, robotic-assisted surgery, or dentures, the entire team takes the time to listen to patient concerns and deliver the right treatment for them. To schedule an appointment with an experienced dental team, call Artaza Dental or request a visit online today.

Our Team

Registered Dental Assistant - Office Manager

Suzi’s dental journey began before she even finished school for her license! She was hired by Dr. Artaza in February of 2012. As ironic as her friends and family believe it is that she made her way to the dental field of all places, she says, “I am that patient that needed to be sedated prior to arriving in the office and had to have a friend/family member bring me here and pick me up. I WAS TERRIFIED. This gives me pure compassion for our patients; being able to nurture those in need to get through the treatments they have been dreading.” Sometimes we hear Suzi battling the insurance companies and then with just the turn of her chair, she is smiling and laughing with the patients. Suzi started here as a single mom with one dog and one daughter of her own.. She has since started a marriage, gained two bonus kids, another dog & became a Siamese Cat Mom.

Registered Dental Assistant - Treatment Coordinator

Ileana joined our team in 2014 after spending a year with another dental office.

“So far, this has been the greatest experience! I have learned so many things assisting him.”

Ileana wears a lot of hats in this office, so sometimes you will see her during your New Patient Exams, sometimes she is in the assistant chair with you and Dr. Artaza, and sometimes she actually gets to stay up front where she belongs! Ileana prides herself with excellent teamwork efforts and she really does love every job she gets to do. When she gets time away from work, you will find her playing with her two wonderful puppies and hanging out with her lovely soon-to-be HUSBAND!

LE - Marketing Consultant

Brooke has a passion for helping patients in the medical field, which she started 6 years ago. She is currently a Licensed Esthetician and she works a full time job doing esthetics at a MedSpa here in Katy. “I began marketing for Dr. Artaza in 2017 and joined his team working in the office because I absolutely LOVE interacting with his patients. Dr. Artaza has a special team with a special feel and working outside of the office just wasn’t as enjoyable. Knowing I am a part of his honorable team, even if I am just doing the back end promoting gives me tremendous pleasure!” Aside from spending her spare time here, Brooke enjoys spending time with her two children, husband and her friends.“
