Tracey Payne starstarstarstarstar My grandson is disabled, and in a wheelchair. They were so thoughtful with him and his needs! They were so sweet with him and quick! I was nervous to start my day at 7 AM at the dentist. But they started our day with awesomeness!
Chelsey starstarstarstarstar My son has been going to Kids Dentistree since he was old enough to go. I love it. The staff is really nice, I never wait long & he’s always excited when he leaves. I would recommend any parent to bring their children here.
Cierra So starstarstarstarstar The dental team is very friendly and empathetic with the children they care for. We are always in and out of the office in a timely manner. Would recommend to other parents/guardians seeking a pediatric dentist.
Smiles bring us together.
Let’s keep yours healthy!
