Meet Dr. Herod



Dr. Otto Herod , DDS

Family and Cosmetic Dentist

Dr. Otto Herod grew up around dentistry. Both parents were dentists and he learned early on what was important to run a successful practice. “I believe that maintaining excellent clinical skills plus good communication between doctor and patient are the essence of successful dentistry,” says Dr. Herod.

After graduating from the Baylor College of Dentistry, Dr. Herod operated a successful practice in East Texas for six years. But as a native South Texan, he decided to move to the San Antonio area to be closer to his family and friends, and to serve his local community.

One skill Dr. Herod's patients really appreciate is his ability to communicate and thoroughly explain treatment procedures. His patients are put at ease and they appreciate the time he takes to get to know them and answer any questions. They also appreciate his thorough approach to their dental work and his gentle techniques, often commenting on the fact that they never even feel his anesthesia injections.
