Dr. Justine Turla and Dr. Thomas Pham
Your Corpus Christi Family and Cosmetic Dentists

We have closed our Staples location and now both Dr. Turla and Dr. Pham are at Oak Park Avenue

Dr. Pham and Dr. Turla have closed the original Staples location and are available for you in our larger and updated office on 735 Oak Park Avenue. We are conveniently located near I-37 on the Westside of Corpus Christi. 


If you are a previous patient at our Staples office, we have your dental records conveniently located at our Oak Park location. We are confident that you will love our Oak Park dental family in our new location.

Corpus Christi Water Update and Dental Treatment

While there is a water ban due to contaminated water in Corpus Christi, we are fortunate to already use distilled, bottled water in all of our dental rooms and sterilization procedures. We care about the safety of our patients so we implement these water policies everyday. You can rest assure that we do not use city water as we treat you and your family.

We have extra water bottles for handwashing and many antibacterial wipes and hand sanitizers to keep everyone safe. So don't be afraid to come in for your dental visit as the city addresses the water dillema.

Story about the office transitions

Our first office at 2802 S. Staples Street Suite D of Corpus Christi was formerly Texas Tooth Doctor with Dr. James Plaveich. Dr. Plaveich sold the office in January 2015 to Dr. Pham and Dr. Turla who continue his legacy of a quality, personal dental care in a boutique-like setting.  


In January 2016, Dr. Pham and Dr. Turla also adopted the office of Gentle Dental Spa with Dr. Barbara Brough at 735 Oak Park. Dr Brough is no longer practicing dentistry but had also trusted Dr. Pham and Dr. Turla to care for her patients. 


Both office locations and phone numbers have remained the same. We hope that you give Dr. Pham and Dr. Turla the opportunity to be your dental provider. 


"We are grateful that two great dentists (Dr. Plaveich and Dr. Brough) have chosen us among a large list of other dentists to treat their longtime patients. We hope you see what they see. Please give us the chance to be your trustworthy, friendly and capable dentists. We will always do the best we can for you"- Dr. Thomas M. Pham, DMD

Rest Assured. It is safe for dental treatment despite water boil advisory

Rest assured. It's SAFE to get your dental work done at our office during the water boil advisory because we don't use the water from the public water system. Instead, we gladly use distilled bottled water for all our dental procedures.
