The reviews for this office made me nervous to go here but I had no choice because my provider list doesn't have a pediatric dentist near me. My experience was 210% opposite from the bad reviews. My daughter has a sensory processing disorder & is scared/anxious about ANYTHING to do with her mouth or tools that make noise. Amber the hygienist spent 20+ minutes introducing my daughter to the tools & made them fun. She even let my daughter use the suction hose on her stuffed animal. My daughter made it through the cleaning without a single meltdown! Once the cleaning was over, I expected my daughter to have a panic attack when Dr. William's was to examine her. Dr. William's was not only extremely patient but also took the time to "play" dentist with our stuffed animal before examining my daughter. She actually allowed him to examine her teeth WITH tools which is a HUGE step for a child with high oral defensiveness. Every single person in this office performed way beyond my expectations!

Love it here! Would recommend to anyone, especially who has a fear of dentist. My stepdaughter has 0 tolerance for pain and went through 4 extractions without complaining once. My husband has had nothing but horrible experiences with dentists, to the extreme of constant sedation. He can go through proceedures here with only nitrous! He wont go anywhere else now. They are awesome when it comes to emergencies too! Financially...never had a problem...with or without coverage it has always worked out.

This place isn't nearly as bad as the other 2 reviews make it out to be. Lets face it, no one likes the dentist but this place has everything on site and runs pretty efficiently. They had a fire a couple of years ago that slowed things down, but never hurt service in any other way. It's still not as quick as it used to be but seems to be catching back up.

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.
