Pediatric Dentists

Pediatric dentists can catch and treat tooth problems at a young age, making it less likely for the problems to worsen as your child gets older.

The longer your dental sealant lasts, the better it will work to prevent cavities from forming on your child's molars and back teeth. Follow these tips.

Dental sealants can't prevent all cavities from forming everywhere in your child's mouth, but they still offer valuable protection for adolescents.

Hello, this is Kyle K from the Member Care Department.

I apologize for my delay. We encourage healthcare providers to list the insurances they accept when creating their Angie’s List profile. At this time however, many providers have not completed this section, or the information wasn't available when Angie's List created their listing.
 
I encourage you to visit your insurance provider's website, as many offer search tools to find local healthcare providers. You can then cross-reference these with Angie's List. We’re happy to help look up these individual providers for you, too.
 
I am sorry I could not answer your question directly, but I hope this information was helpful.

Please let me know if there's any other assistance or info I can provide. You can respond in line to this Q&A thread by submitting a new answer. You can also reach us at memberservices@angieslist.com or toll-free at 1-866-783-2980 to speak with a live representative.

They're friendly and do a good job. They're good about being able to schedule an appointment on short notice - even within 2 weeks. One time we had a tooth emergency and Dr.

came in on a Sunday to treat us. I typically wait 5 minutes to be seen when I arrive. The hygienists and office staff are all really nice too.

. The entire staff excels at making the kids relaxed. They are very patient with kids who are nervous or resistant to treatments. I have a 6 year old and a 3 year old - and they look forward to going to the dentist (an added bonus is the "prizes" they get for having a good check up.)

Unfortunately I have used this Provider for years. The practice is basically run by dental hygienist students that rotate in and out of the office. The lack of professionalism and care is alarming. I am currently seeing another Dentist that is correcting the mess she has made of my mouth. Dr. pulled one

tooth, which lead to me getting TMJ and changed my bite. She recommended a bite guard, a student took the impression TWICE, billed the insurance company and three months later the bite guard arrived and was given to me by another student with no information on use or care. It took me from October to January to figure out where the bite guard was and why I didn't have it. My insurance company launched an investigation as to why she billed me for a service that was fulfilled three months later. That was the last straw. She replaced all of my fillings with sub-par fillings that I now have to replace. During my time in the practice she insisted I needed about 3 crowns, which are now cracked or of the improper size and in the process of being replaced. She insisted the insurance would not pay for the crowns that cracked immediately after she put them in. In summary:poor customer service, questionable insurance billing practices, expect to see a dental hygienist student instead of the Dr., work is of poor quality and a total lack of communication from the "staff."

We got a letter that he retired recently. He was very gentle and very good with my children. We didn't have to wait longer than 10 minutes to be seen. The parents weren't allowed to go back with the kids, but it wasn't a problem.

He's good. He gives each patient personal attention. He gives good referrals for services that he doesn't do. I have no complaints on the 5 crowns he has put on for me. I never have to wait to be seen when I arrive for my appointment; I get in right away.

I have been seeing the dentist for about 2 years. She is good with the kids. She has very professional hygienists. They make the experience very easy, comfortable and pain free. The office staff is very friendly, engaging and social. They interact with the kids well and make sure you are comfortable while waiting. I had no problem at all scheduling with the dentist. They are very accommodating and flexible.

We have visited one time so far. They were very kid friendly. They did not push unnecessary services or make me worry about orthodontics just yet. I like that they are low key and do not intervene too much. They were really great and good at working with different personalities of kids. I had no problem scheduling the appointment. Their pricing is a little higher than other dentists I have heard about.

The appointment went great. The staff is very friendly and even helped my daughter with a very loose tooth. They were able to remove it easily for her which she was very concerned about. All was great and will always go back.
