“Always amazing, very polite, clean and patient with the little ones. My daughter "loves" the dentist.”Elizabeth Jeknavorian
“Today was my youngest’s first appointment and just like with my oldest, they nailed it. Made her feel comfortable and explained everything that needed to be done in a way that was understandable without being patronizing. I live about 40 minutes away now, but I won’t take them anywhere else. They’re all so lovely! And their new office is beautifu and light, and nothing like my scary dentists of my childhood lol”Samantha Ramirez
“My son had a dental emergency and they were able to see him right away. He’s 3 and brand new to the whole dentist thing but Dr. Meggan and Emma were amazing with him! They kept him calm and made it quick. I cannot emphasize how great the staff is with children. They make the process so easy for parents. They also have a beautiful new facility. There’s no reason for a customer to be upset by billIng amounts. There is such a thing of calling in advance to find out what procedures your child needs and how much you’ll pay. Thank you Growing Smiles!”Missy N.
