This was my first time taking my 3 year old son to the dentist and it was a GREAT experience. I set up his appointment through their email service online, which was so convenient for me to use. My son and I watched the Virtual Tour online on their website to get a feel of what it would be like when we got there. When we arrived the staff were all friendly and professional. Doctor Harris was GREAT!!! Very child-friendly and made us feel relaxed, which is a must when I take my children to see doctors. He did a TERRIFIC job on my son's teeth. I will definitely be making appointment for my other two children to be seen at Happy Smiles!!

Both my 9-yr-old and my 3-yr-old both love going, and the play area is really helpful for keeping them occupied while waiting. We have been attended by several different staff members, and all have been friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and great with kids. My older child has had more extensive dental work and was leery of seeing a new dentist when we moved here, but she's comfortable with the staff at Happy Smiles!

Have to let everyone know again. If you're looking for a great Dentist along with a great staff and atmosphere then Happy Smiles is the place. My daughter absolutely hated going to the dentist until we went to Happy Smiles when they 1st opened. Dr.Harris is great and he makes sure what needs to be done gets done. I have and would refer anyone to Happy Smiles!

My kids love the play area, the entire staff is great, my older son has been going since they opened but I have recently took my 19 month old and was nervous about how it would turn out and they were wonderful with him. They made both of their appointments together and called them back together. The kids also enjoy the tvs above the chairs!

We love Happy Smiles! The entire office is so kid friendly - from the waiting area with video games and a large play area to the televisions above each chair in the back. The staff there is also great! They take the time to listen to the concerns parents have as well as help the kids with their questions and concerns too.

Awesome place. My nephew loves this place and is always ready to go to the dentist. Thanks to happy smiles he is no longer afraid of the dentist. The whole staff is amazing. Kid friendly. The reception area makes it hard for my nephew to want to leave ... But I wouldn't dare go anywhere else

A great place to take children. From the moment you walk in the door they make your children feel comfortable and happy. The play area is a great way to put them at ease. The staff is wonderful and so friendly. Love having a Happy Smiles in Meridian, MS!

My daughter's first visit was last summer, and her second visit was this week. The staff made her feel very comfortable and the environment is very kid friendly. The wait time is exceptional as well. Very organized and would highly recommend.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
