    I Googled compassionate dentists in the area and ACE was one of the top listed. I have too many traumatic experiences and that has created a huge fear. The doctors and the hygienists are all so amazing, especially Jasmine and Dr. Sonkar. They were so gentle throughout the entire experience. I feel that my issues were dealt with very professionally and the process was explained thoroughly. If you are looking for a dentist & periodontist and you are scared, this is the place to come.

    I'm from Round Rock & I have been with my current primary Dentist & Periodontist for the last 9ys plus. However, I have not been happy with my current Dental treatments & the prices, I've been charged & paying for my results. I was speaking with my co-worker, who lives in Killeen, regarding my concerns & she referred me to Ace Dental. I could not be happier, it's was worth the travel to Killeen, to receive such Great Dental Service & Care.

    Once the staff was great. Dr. Sonkar explained that the the procedure went well and is healing however she stressed the importance of continued oral hygiene and gentle brushing around the surgery area to ensure proper healing of the gum. Once again I am extremely pleased with our visit and highly recommend this practice for your dental needs!
