What Our Patients Say

  • We love TPD and Dr. Shawn! When calling to make an appointment for my daughter, the woman helping us over the phone was incredibly pleasant and helpful! The waiting area is very inviting and clean, and we only waited a very short time before being called back. The dental hygienist was kind and friendly and helped put my sometimes nervous child at ease. Dr. Shawn was kind, professional, and thorough. I would highly recommend this wonderful practice!

  • Our son had his first trip to the dentist this morning and it couldn't have gone better. The office is so cute and inviting and the staff is amazing!

    .. Fast forward a year...
    This morning was his first time in the "big boy chair"!! Jen made the cleaning a fun experience with headphones, a dinosaur tv show and some cool shades to help with the light. They have really thought of everything here. Clean, friendly, super cute office and even a prize at the end. Our son can't wait to come back! Thanks guys!

  • Restorative work can be extremely traumatic for a child. I never wanted my children to grow up with a fear of the dentist. Thankfully, IV sedation is an available option at Tallahasseee Pediatric Dentistry. My 5-year old needed several fillings, so before selecting sedation the hygienist recommended trying the procedure first without and she got through it like a champ, she was so calm and relaxed. She needs to return in a week to finish the other side and she has no fear as she felt no pain!

  • So thankful to have found Dr. Shawn! My newborn baby had a tongue and lip tie and we had been having all sorts of issues until we found Tallahassee pediatric dentistry and had a tongue and lip tie release. Within a few days, my baby was feeding, and sleeping so much better! Both my husband and I were impressed with the office from the cleanliness to how friendly the staff is. Working with kids can be hard, but this group does a great job! I can’t say enough about Dr. Shawn and her lovely, compassionate bedside manner. As a mother to young children herself, she seems to really understand how nerve-racking these procedures can be for parents. 10/10 recommended!
