Irene Blaess, DDS
Dr. Blaess became a dentist because she wanted to show people that it is possible to have pain free dental experiences. As a child, she had a very traumatic dental episode and it took years to be able to stop being sedated for dental work. Her goal is to ensure children never feel the terror she experienced and have a pain-free dental visit. Her gentle touch and caring manor is what makes her one of the best dentists in Texas. Dr. Blaess believes it is vitally important to commit time to keep learning. She attends many hours of continuing education courses every year, far beyond the necessary amount required to maintain licensure. The office undergoes constant improvements in equipment, materials, and techniques. Dr. Blaess grew up in Houston since the age of eight, graduating from Sharpstown High School. Upon graduation, she attended the University of Texas in Austin. She is a Longhorn but treats Aggies with the same caring touch. Upon receiving her dental degree in 1997 from the University of Texas Health Science Center she opened DeZavala Dental. In 2003 she partnered with Dr. Stan Zebrowski to open Northwoods Dental Spa, with a commitment to treat each patient as they want to be treated. She is a wife and mother of two boys, Michael Blaess and Brian Levin. Michael is attending TMI and enjoys lacrosse and football while Brian Is at San Antonio Boys Academy and is the soccer guy.
