Had an amazing experience here with my 2 year old daughter. They treated her with great care and I felt very comfortable leaving her with them. The procedure went great and she healed very quickly.

If I could give 0 stars I would. They don't go off your regular doctors x rays, they do their own and then go off those. We were told one thing by one dentist off ice and salida did something different. DONT RECOMMEND. They refuse to take off the silver caps and let us pay out of pocket for white caps when originally we were suppose to get white filling.

The staff where really nice and helpful, they're very good at explaining everything that's going on, I was so terrified that my son had to go under anesthesia but everything turned out great. I do feel like they need to do some remodeling, the chairs up front are ripped and doesn't give a good vibe. Had me double thinking of the place.

They were very nice & knowledgeable. The Doctor came out & personally spoke to me after the procedure. But I wish I had been allowed to bring someone with me...I had to load my granddaughter into the car & I've had 2 back surgeries & getting ready to have a knee replacement. I wish I would've known.. Other than that, they were great.

I wish I could give a 0 star, But front seat was nice it was my sons teeth for me they didn't do a great job how Childrens choice does not only do they don't let you wake up your own child from being put to sleep & had me wait almost a hour to get my child back and had the end results upset me luckily these are his baby teeth but also they gave him is iv while he's awake Go somewhere else in my opinion not the most soothingly way to go about things children's choice was way better my son doesn't even want to go to the dentist anymore .

I was scared to bring my daughter here, she needed so much work done and I was scared for her having to be under anesthesia and getting everything done at once but the nurse, doctor and anesthesiologist were all so nice and great at explaining everything it really helped me to be calm for my child. The treatment didn't even last an hour. Was only there for maybe an hour and a half.
