Unique Features Of Pediatric Dentist:

A child can go through same problem as any other normal human being. In fact they grow more cavities than any adult, so they need more attention.

  • When children are brought to the clinic, they start to lose patience gradually, so playroom is adjusted for their recreation. Instead to wait outside the chamber and nurture thoughts of pain and treatment, a child needs to get relaxed before they are taken inside.
  • A dental chair which is the most common thing in a dentist office must be used in a different manner for child’s care. The chair must be stuffed with toys and fondled with all sorts of soft and colorful pampering materials in the office, so that he does not get terrified at the first place.
  • It is easier to capture the child’s attention, the moment you are able to seek it, you can calm their mind before operation.

I so love affordable dentist. At first I was skeptical and unsure but I took a leap and made an appointment. I’ve been going through some extensive dental work, but the staff here is exceptionally loving and they make sure my confidence stays up to par. I love the ladies here so much it feels like family and I hate to leave lol 😂. The doctors are very nice, helpful, and professional. I got a tooth extracted, and implant placed in less than 15 minutes and I couldn’t believe the doctor when he said it would take that amount of time. Affordable dentist and its staff keeps me laughing and smiling but most of all feeling loved. 🥹🥹

Would not recommend, unless you absolutely have to. Staff was extremely friendly but no one knew what was going on. I went in for a cleaning and I left after 2.5 hours. The entire appointment had a lot of back and forth and waiting. Someone would come in, say "Hey you doing okay? Great, I'll get the doctor" or "I'm just getting set up and I'll be right back." They would maybe grab a pair of gloves, or move a chair from one side of the room to the other (and then move it back) and then make a comment that they were short staffed or technology was being slow. For the cleaning, they polished my teeth first, which was odd. The tech did not know what she was doing- the toothpaste was literally flying all over the room. It ended up in my hair, and all over my glasses and face. The dentist who "cleaned" my teeth was extremely rough. It's not uncommon for my gums to bleed or get nicked, but after an hour, they're still bleeding. The toothpaste that was used was still stuck in my teeth after. They did not floss as part of the cleaning. I had asked to get molds for new retainers, but it was more waiting and "oh the computer is being slow." So I left at the 2.5 hour mark. The rooms are more like cubicles- they do not have doors. They also do not have sinks- everything is portable, like a pop up shop. Every room has two large flat screen TVs installed and mounted, but none of them turned on (not even the weather or like a reminder to floss). The rooms are freshly painted and decorated. The person on the phone had suggested a same day appointment multiple times. The waiting room was packed. Another person who had the same appointment time as me was still in the waiting room after an hour. It felt like they're trying to get people in the door. It felt like the two women who were interacting with me the most were not actually trained or authorized to perform work, but more like they were just supposed to stall. Again, everyone was super friendly. I have some theories about how this place operates but I'll keep that to myself. It was not traumatizing and it was not the worst experience I've had at a dentist-but definitely the most bizarre. I had scheduled a follow up appointment at the beginning of my visit and I canceled it before I left because I would not want to return.

Great experience. Went in for a tooth pull and was out really quick. Dr.Pham was amazing and so was Jennifer. While in the room Jennifer talked to me and my girl and really made sure I was comfortable and had a good experience while there. If I could give 20 stars I would. 10/10 DEFINITELY recommend.

Chrissy at the front desk was super helpful and caring…she went the extra mile to make sure I got what I needed. Dr M. Kim Den was great as well I got 2 extractions and she told me step by step everything she was doing and also made sure I wasn’t in any pain. The last wisdom tooth I got removed hurt so I was scared but this procedure went so smooth I didn’t even realize she was done because I felt absolutely nothing. This is definitely going to be my dental office from now on.

They did a fantastic job on fixing my grill. I have acid reflux really bad and so the acid has eaten up my teeth. I now have a new 😁 smile thanks to them. Their nurses are the freaking best part of my entire experience. Very sincere and caring.
