I had my first appointment with them on Monday, and I AM IN LOVE.I am very pleased with the care and professionalism of each employee. I don't go to the dentist because I have a very bad gag reflex. When I made my appointment I made them aware of it. They told me not to worry about it. I was able to get a FULL set of x-rays done with only gagging one time.They when over my insurance coverage explaining everything to me. I have NEVER had anyone go over my coverage with me. Dr. Lee put the cherry on top of my visit. By caring about me and not the money. Other dentist made me feel like they just wanted the money. I didn't care about my treatment at all. I am very pleased with Family Dentistry. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING MY SMILE BACK...

This is a great pediatric office and I would have given it 5 stars based on care and demeanor of dentists alone. However, trying to get an appointment is a nightmare. Scheduling is 5 months out if you're willing to take anything (scheduling January appointments in August) and if you don't want your kids to miss school, scheduling for a school holiday (MLK day, Presidents day, etc) is 6+ months out.

I'm sorry to hear about the bad experiences others have had here but we have nothing but wonderful experiences! My oldest has Autism and Dr. Golnick was just wonderful with him and his staff. He never felt uneasy. He did wonderful with his cleaning and even his filling. I recommend Dr. Golnick and his practice whenever I can.
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.
