"Overall the appointment went really well. We arrived on time and had a very short wait to be called back by the hygienist. She (the hygienist) was friendly and" interacted directly with my son, making him feel at ease. For the most part she spoke directly to my son during the cleaning, explaining what she was doing in words that he understood. The only downside was that we had a substantial wait (I think 10 minutes) after she had finished before the dentist was available to come complete the exam. The office is well designed with children in mind. There are decorations on the walls and ceilings to make it friendlier. They also have sunglasses for the kid to wear and little prizes if they have a clean checkup. If you want appointments outside of school hours, be prepared to wait an extra month or so.

"I have taken my child here for 6 years and I am extremely happy with everyone on staff there! They create a relaxed yet professional atmosphere that puts both child" and parent at ease. They use their own termology for instruments and procedures being used/done to communicate with each other while keeping the kids worry free (shake the tooth buds to sleep instead of saying one shot of novicane). You can be with your child during the entire process and they provide hand held video games for the kids to play while prepping for dental work or waiting for the happy nose (laughing gas) to help with nerves before procedures. If your looking for a pediatric dentist look no further, I would go there myself if I could!

Young athletes are at risk for injuries to their teeth, jaws and head while playing. But is it worth the cost for a custom-fitted mouth guard from the dentist?

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.

Hi Elizabeth,
 
This is Sarah B. in Member Care. I'm happy to help!
 
I was able to find several rated Eye Care Surgeons. For your current need though, our Snapfix specialists would also be able to do all of the dialing for you, match you up with a top rated provider and arrange to have them call you to figure out the logistics. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please fill out the form in the link below and our Snapfix Team will take it from there!

If you would like to reach out to these providers yourself, please let me know. I’d be happy to send these to you.  No matter which option you choose, I hope you’ll take the time to fill out a review when everything is done.
 
If you would like information on additional providers through this forum, please let us know. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at memberservices@angieslist.com. We're happy to help, Elizabeth!

While my teeth did not need significant movement, I had wanted to do this for a couple of years. Dr. and I planned the work together. He personally talked me through what he would do as well as the cost (Invisalign and post treatment retainers and options). I felt when I went in for my scan, as well as my buttons, first tray ...More through my last tray, I knew what to expect. I am now done with my trays and waiting for my retainer to come in. I am very pleased with the results and love my smile even more!

Dr. and his staff are absolutely amazing. Our two children (3 and 5 years old) LOVE going to the dentist... It is great! I can't say enough about! Highly recommended!

She and her staff are very caring and professional. She took the time to meet us, and did some follow-up appointments, to make sure everything was taken care of. She was great about answering my questions about follow-up care and nursing. We really appreciated her understanding, knowledge and kindness. She even did a presentation for us so that we knew ...More what the procedure entailed, and I really liked knowing that she was making every effort to make sure her patients are very well informed. The brochures and information in her waiting room indicated that she's up to speed on all the latest dental practices. I do know that she offers other services, and I would highly recommend her.

NO ONE cares MORE about your child's dental health than DR . So thankful that My daughter has been his patient for more than TEN YEARS. When she was hit in the mouth by a ball accidentally, Dr 's office managed to see her right away to assess the damage. Through baby teeth, adult teeth and braces, ...More Dr and staff have cleaned, advised, and even admonished when necessary-- all with the goal of a pretty smile with healthy teeth. It is clear from all their efforts that Dr and his staff REALLY want the kids to have GOOD CHECKUPS. Also, the atmosphere is very pleasant, as Dr and his staff know how to talk with patients whether they are children, tweens or teens. I got to Dr because another dentist told me that was the BEST CHILDREN'S DENTIST in the area.

Dr. and her dentistry techs and hygienists are thoughtful, smart and quick. Especially, with little toddlers and small kids who are scared and freaked out by everything. Parents are encouraged to go back and sit in plain view of the child during treatment and this offers a sense of security and calmness for the little ones ...More and the parents. My toddler received x-rays for the first time and the tech was fast, friendly and interacted superbly and at a level which encouraged my toddler to want to participate. It was a game and she wanted to too. My only drawback is that sometimes the front office staff forget or get appointment times mixed up and patients get skipped and you're there waiting and waiting not knowing why.

Best pediatric dentist who doesn't push extra costs or un-necessary procedures on the children/parents. Is gentle and patient. Would highly recommend!

see above. I go there for all the girls cleanings, fillings and sealant. Dr Shocker even pulled an absessed baby tooth for me.
They let me go in with my children (tip--if the pediatric dentist does not allow you to go back with your child--find a new one)
and they realize that I'm totally neurotic about my kids teeth but they don't ...More judge me. They take the time to educate me about what they are doing and I feel like I'm part of a team that takes care of my children.

I had the most positive experience with each and every person that I met. Everyone was happy, smiling, kind, attentive and professional! The office was lovely and Dr. was wonderful with me and my exiting problems. I hope to become a patient.
