I wouldn’t go anywhere else! Our entire family has been coming to Helotes Gentle Family Dentistry since 2010 when the Air Force moved us to San Antonio. Everyone who works there is very nice and professional. I’m so glad we found them.

Dr. Keepers is a great dentist. She knows what she is doing, she works quickly and she really cares about her patients. She will even work with you on the payments which is appreciated. She is patient with people who don’t like going to the dentist (like me) and she is indeed gentle.
— Wilson

I have been going to Helotes Gentle Family Denistry and Dr. Keepers since 2012 when we moved to San Antonio. I have Carol work her magic on cleaning my teeth and wouldn’t want to go to anyone else. Dr. Keepers is thorough and friendly—easy to talk to, answers your questions, and makes me feel welcome. Can’t imagine going anywhere else.
