Mark Lawrence DDS
Professional, caring, gentle, friendly, dentist and support staff. My kids love to go, and the waiting area is exceptional. I wish they were my dentist too (they only take children 18 and under).

I came once again after bringing the kids I Theresa Dykstra felt like Dr. Yu had no bedside manners he was rude and impatient. The 2 technicians shonte Robinson and casandra and there was two more the tech with the braces that completely understood and had patience with while I was in tears from the way I was treated by Dr. Yu and the lady with the blonde hair also helped because my insurance wouldn't cover something she made sure I could get the work done at a reasonable price. Also the other lady at the front desk with the ponytail helped a whole lot. I appreciate the people that helped me and I hope Dr.Yu's impatience came from being very busy. I don't feel like it has changed my mind about lol smiles I will still use it for my family dental needs I will even try Dr. Yu on a not so busy day.

Overbooked as usual, ridiculous wait time, Dr. Johnson is the only good thing about this location. Dr. Johnson always has a positive attitude and does his job very well.

There was one nice guy that came to get my daughter to do x-rays, but the Dr barely spoke a word to me. He was busy, and I think he is nice, but parents want a Dr that will slow down long enough to make eye contact. I also want him to tell ME what he sees, not just dictate it to the nurse. Neither of my children had cavities, and I feel the staff should have smiled at least. Yes, it was close to their lunch time. I was also 10 mins late to my appt so I guess they were ill bc of this, but I had a good reason for being late. Look, just smile people. The staff could have been a lot friendlier and the Dentist should have communicated with me at least a little bit. I had to ask 2 or 3 times to find out my children had no cavities. I am not sure I will go back, but my kids love the play area so much, I just may have to.

The dentist my son saw didn't even o ow why he was there, she was asking me all types of question that in my opinion she should have been aware of before he got in the chair. Every other time my son is usually ok at the dentist I mean as with all other kids he's a bit nervous before the dentist. However, this time his dental assistant did nothing to make him feel comfortable and continuously pointed out that he was too old to be that upset at the dentist, which was very unprofessional in my opinion. I explained to her he had a bad experience in their office prior to this visit and she continued to be very impatient with my son. We will not return to Kool Smiles and I hope this review will help inform other parents.

The website should be clear that walk-ins are not taken. I visited on Saturday for a cracked/chipped tooth and was told I couldn't be seen that day. I had driven 45 miles one way!

Adams Family And Cosmetic Dentistry PC DMD
Dr. Adams is definitely the most excellent dentist we've ever know! He is very careful, making sure you're not hurt. The staff is just like a family, a bunch of wonderful friends, taking care for all your needs. Don't let me forget, Dr. Adams is very fair with remarkable low and affordable charges, unlike many others in this trade...Thank you Dr. Adams and family for all what you did for us! Dianne, Walter and family.

Playground once again was closed this has happened last 3 visits. Its hard to explain ro a 3 year old. Instead of blocking with chairs that 5 or 6 kids moved including my own close it off better. The hygienist Beth usually cleans my daughter s teeth with zero problems and remembers she is 3 not 10 where a kid would sit still. Instead of trying to reassure my daughter everything was ok, they bring 3 people to hold her down as she is crying from being scared. Also im not really confident they cleaned all of her teeth it seemed since she was moving around they rushed to get her out. If Beth is no longer there we will NOT come back.
Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
