I am a first time patient and I was very apprehensive about having more dental work done because of previous negative experience at another dental office. I quickly was placed at ease because from the moment the Dental Hygienist called my name I could tell I would be treated with dignity.She took the time to talk to me let me know exactly what procedures I needed done & what to expect. She made sure that I was comfortable during my cleaning. Once the dentist came to talk to me about the additional treatment I would need, I again was met with a very friendly and knowledgeable person. I am so glad I was finally able to find a dental office that I feel confident in. I would highly recommend this dental office.

Dr Florence is very good... She helps with so many things and is so motivating... I saw her for close to a year, she is so easy to talk to.. She even came to my home when I had no transportation... I felt soooo comfortable talking to her... I just loved Spring Life period!! She deals with adults and kids as well... I would love to thank her again one day!��������
Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
