After enduring some bad experiences with local RGV dentists during the early 1990s, we luckily switched to and have been receiving all of our dental care from Dr. Person over the past 15 years. As such, we couldn't be happier. He, and his staff are fantastic -- always on time, courteous, and very caring. They are a magnificent team that complements each other and takes tremendous pride in their work. In fact, he and his staff are so outstanding that we gladly make the long drive from Rio Hondo to Dr. Person's office in McAllen for our dental care. We like to think of the drive as just "going to see family." Lt. Colonel Gary Andresen USMC

I've been a patient of Dr. Person since the early 1980's. I came to Dr. Person, because a local dentist wanted to fill 21 cavities he claimed I had. I just couldn't believe that was correct, so I came to Dr. Person for a 2nd. opinion. He educated me about dental X-rays and said I only needed 2 cavities filled. Alleluia! That was over 30 years ago, and I still haven't had all those cavities filled. Dr. Person is a dentist who cares for his patients beyond their dental health. He truly cares about the health of the whole person. I appreciate his upbeat and friendly staff. I look forward to my 6 month check-ups, because I know I'm going to be treated with respect, and will receive the latest in dental treatment. If I have a tooth that might need treatment, but can wait, I know he will watch it and do what's best when or if the time is right. In addition, Dr. Person is my husband's dentist, and now my grandson's dentist! My entire family is grateful for Dr. Person and his professional staff. Thank you, Dr. Person for being the best dentist in the Valley. Deborah Case Kryzak

Dr. James Person is an excellent dentist. I have been referring patients to him for 32 years. He is very professional, sincere, and honest…A very caring doctor who is always there for you, especially with emergencies. Whether you need dental or cosmetic work, this office is second to none with an exceptional staff. If you want a beautiful smile, this is the place to go. Thanks Doc! You're the best!! Rosie Koertgen

Dr. Person has been my dentist half of his life! I have ten pages to tell about all the things Dr. Person has done for me, but they said to cut it down to one short thing! Dr. Person was in the middle of a root canal and cap on my tooth, which takes several visits to complete, when I had to return to Houston for my treatments there. Dr. Person was concerned that I might have a problem while I was there so he gave me the x-rays of my tooth and told me to call him on his cell, day or night, and he would contact a friend in Houston who would see me quickly! I was blessed and didn't need anything and Dr. Person completed the work when we came home. He is the best dentist in the world and we love him for all he has done for me and Carl. I've never heard anyone say, "Yea! I'm going to the dentist today!" but I do. When I open the door all I see are beautiful smiles from Melissa, Frances, Nelda, and all the girls there. I love them like family! Tress Hamilton

I had the privilege when I moved to McAllen to be hired to work as Dr. Person's dental hygienist. I loved it so much there that I stayed there for 17 years. It always felt like we were family there. Our children grew up loving to go to the dentist. Dr. Person always made it so much fun. He always would say to the patients that he would treat them just like he would want his family members to be treated. I loved watching the children of families there grow into young adults while I was there. I still love going back as a patient there, it is like family. They take really good care of me still. I still miss seeing the patients that I grew to love and I love the staff that is there now. Jan Keller, RDH

My family and I have been going to Dr. Person since 1987. My wife was his hygienist for 17 years. When I was a youth my experience was awful and painful with an abscessed tooth that was pulled with no anesthetic. Dr. Person knew how sensitive I was, and fearful. In all these years, I can say that he has made sure that my dental chair experience has been great. Dr. Person has always been more concerned for my well-being than anything else. The staff and office have been great to work with and schedule. Thank you for this opportunity to tell of my 24 years with Dr. Person as my dentist. James C. Keller

Thank you very much for giving me back my smile Doc! I was approaching the same place my dad had to endure with his dental issues and you saved me from that. Also, thank you for the SoniCare power toothbrush. I use it (most days) twice daily because it feels good and makes me care about my dental hygiene. I truly appreciate you and your staff for what you have done for me and I highly recommend you and the entire James A. Person, DDS organization. Richard E. Friedrichs II
