As a mother of 5 I have been to other dentists that my children haven't enjoyed and it was miserable trying to get them to go kicking and screaming. They LOVE going to the dentist now and yes my children have had to have the extensive dental work ~ crowns ~ spacers ~ cavities filled etc. The environment is wonderful for children, and everyone you come into contact with is friendly and courteous to you and your children. Don't be discouraged by the other reviews, go in and see for yourself, because I have truly had bad experiences at other practices. This office makes going to the dentist fun ! ! !
