What To Expect

We see children from age 0-adolescents in each of our locations, with their families. We particularly love to see little ones in our pediatric offices devoted to kids dentistry, specializing in child dental care and experience.

What to expect on your child's first dental visit?

Once you arrive at our office with your child you will meet the dentist and the dental staff. The dentist should test for decay and alignment during your child's exam. The dentist can also ask you to sit in the chair and keep your child, depending on your child's age.

He may check for any possible issues with your child's gums, jaw and overall mouth health. The dentist or hygienist can also clean the teeth and assess the need for an application of fluoride and sealant. The dentist will assess the developmental conditions and will answer any questions you may have.

What to expect from your child's dental developments as they grow older?

Infant years:

It's time to see the dentist after the first tooth erupts. This isn't going to take that long. You should hold your little one in your lap while the dentist is testing their tooth (or teeth) and overall dental health.

Timing tip: arranging your visit after nap time and getting a snack would make your visit much happier

Toddler years:

After the first teeth come out, your child will see the dentist at least every six months. These years are all about making the dentist a nice, healthy place to visit because caring for the teeth is your child's second nature.

The dentist will add stuff to the routine of your child as they grow, such as toothbrushing (twice a day!) with non-fluoride toothpaste and flossing — with mom and dad's assistance.

At this stage, diet is very important. Gummy treats, including gummy vitamins and fruit chews, as well as starchy foods such as pretzels and potato chips stick to baby teeth and cause cavities — including in children. So make sure to snack on fresh fruits and vegetables and clean those choppers!


Your child is expected to have a perfect, full baby teeth smile by now and we want to keep it that way. Your dentist would check your child's teeth and add new activities once a day to accommodate their increasing motor skills, such as flossing on their own.

Fixing a cavity

In a baby tooth, several children get cavities. A dentist should handle it as though it were a grown-up tooth, like grinding out the decay and filling the tooth again. It can be really disturbing for children and parents. Note, children look to their parents for a way to react to issues, so speak frankly with the child and remain upbeat.


Soon, one of those little teeth will get wiggly and a giant, too-big-for-that-little mouth, grown-up tooth will take its place. When the new teeth join, the dentist must pay careful attention to balance with them. A good bite to chew, eat and talk is necessary. When there are signs of your child's teeth coming in crooked, your dentist can refer you to an orthodontist for a full assessment.

Middle school

All of your child's adult teeth should be in by middle school, except for their wisdom teeth, which usually do not arrive until later. Plaque and tartar are the targets for cleaning and your dentist may apply sealants to their molars to prevent decay. Your child is likely to become more and more independent too, and you probably won't help them brush their teeth like you did when they were five.

Make sure they retain the good habits that you helped them to create. Brushing twice a day, eating floss and eating fresh fruits and veggies are just as important now as ever.

High school

Your kid is almost all grown up. Yet to the dentist, they are not too grown up. Furthermore, teenage teeth may face a whole new set of hazards. Be sure that in sports they wear bite guards that have some risk of touch, particularly if they have braces.

What if my kid has dental anxiety?

It's fine. There are plenty of adults too. Speak to us prior to your visit about your child's fears. Our pediatric dentist has a knack of helping children enjoy their check-ups from exploring the office to playing a game together. Helping children know how to enjoy the dentist is one of our passions.

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.
