About Our Doctors

Our friendly associate Doctors & staff include husband/wife dentists - Dr. Trent S. Weera, Dr. Claudia Thomas, along with our well-trained dental assistants and front desk administrators.  Our goal is to provide quality patient care customized to each patient's needs, with an overall pleasant experience at our office from the moment you step through our doors.

Dr. Trent S. Weera is from Bangkok, Thailand and graduated top 10% from Michael E. Debakey High School for Health Professions here in Houston.  He attended Baylor University for his undergraduate studies graduating Cum laude with Bachelor of Science in pre-healthcare Biology, minoring in Organic Chemistry research and received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery shortly thereafter, at Texas A&M Health Science Center Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, TX.  Dr Weera practiced in Dallas, TX for some time and then moved to Houston in 2009, where he has been serving Houston & surrounding communities.  He speaks English, Thai, and limited Spanish.

Dr. Claudia Thomas received her dental degree in 2001 from the Universidad Central in Venezuela.  She moved to the United States in 2003 and earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from University of California Los Angeles Dental School.  She has been serving the Houston area since 2008 and speaks fluent English & Spanish.  

Dr Weera & Dr Thomas opened their first location, Weera Family Dentistry, (originally founded in 2012, formerly known as Southwest Dentists) to serve the Bellaire/Gulfton & surrounding communities.  In May 2023, Southwest Dentists 1&2 were combined together once again and has now re-opened as simply, Southwest Dentists (orginally founded by Dr. Kathy Nguyen in 2001).  

A message from Dr Weera:

Hello! I want to welcome you to our dentist office and give you a brief introduction of our family practice.  My name is Dr. Trent Weera. I am a father of 4 wonderful children - Ellie, Eli, Emry, and Oliver. I am an alumnus of Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, and re-located to Houston in 2009. 

Our dental practice has 7 associate dentists that share similar practice philosophies in patient care - myself, my wife - Dr. Claudia Thomas, Dr. Jimmy Tran, Dr. Haitham Wehbe, Dr. Ahmad Muhieddine, Dr. Saeed Rohi, and our orthodontist, Dr. Daniel Le.  The seven of us have combined 7+ decades of experience in dentistry and we work together to provide the best dental care possible for our patients. We strive to give our patients a great experience that is comfortable and will help alleviate the anxieties of going to the dentist. Our friendly staff will also be there to support you and help to clarify any other questions you may have. We are a private practice that is focused on providing quality dental care in a relaxed environment for the entire family, at an affordable cost. We recognize each individual has different needs and concerns; therefore, we individually customize your dental care in accordance with your needs and primary concerns. Our team will help guide you through the process, by prioritizing your dental treatments in a way that is easy to understand, affordable (payment plan options), and practical for you to achieve your dental goals. We look forward to working with you soon!

Trent S Weera, DDS & Claudia Thomas, DDS
