Our Top 4 Unique Services

What Our Patients Say

  • My girls have been going here since they turned two, and they always look forward to their next visit. The staff is so friendly, gentle and accommodating. We never wait for long, but the waiting room is stocked full of toys and cute movies to keep the kids occupied. The whole facility is clean and bright, and we have had such pleasant experiences there. I highly recommend Dr. Shawn!

    Stephanie Hooper
  • Our triplets had a great experience here. They left all smiles and determined to never eat candy again (we'll see how long that lasts!). Everyone was friendly and the kids were made to feel comfortable about everything being done.

    Michelle Therrien
  • My son had his first visit here last month and I was surprised and delighted at how much he loved “the dentist”! Check in was smooth and quick, even with restrictions on entry and social distancing due to COVID-19. They had Finding Nemo playing on a huge tv in the waiting area and his name up on a new patient board, which he was so excited about. There was no physical paperwork as everything was completed on an iPad which was sanitized between each use. When he came back from his cleaning he was holding a cup with a new toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and even a t-shirt that said “smooth sailing”!

    When we got back in the car to head home he said “mommy, can we go back to the dentist on Saturday” 😂 which means you know it was a hit. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for their kids to have a fun time receiving great dental care!

    Nichole Subia
  • I was looking for a pediatric dentist on Google a few months ago and this place popped up. Just the pictures alone told me this was the one! So i decided to try it out. Our first visit felt welcoming. Staff is just awesome, very polite, very patient. Always greeting you with a smile! I loved it!
    Second visit was today (procedure was done) and WOW!!!!! Everything went great.
    They did a great job with my 4 year old. She loves them. Highly recommend it!

    Gregoria Regalado
  • My 3 year old loves his visits to the dentist. Mrs. Jen has been WONDERFUL to him and it's comforting knowing that he's in caring and capable hands. Highly recommend!
