Wonderful Office! Thank you to the entire team for making my toddlers first dental visit great! We were greeted by friendly smiles and Lauren and Dr. Shawn made my daughter feel extremely comfortable during her visit. We are relieved to have had such a positive first dental experience and we look forward to many more in the future!
Very patient!This was our first trip to the dentist. They were very patient with my boys and showed them step by step what they were doing. My 4 year old said it was the best part of his day! Thank you!
Awesome place!We had a wonderful experience. Staff was extremely friendly and the establishment was very clean. After having a bad experience at another dentist my daughter was very upset. Everyone was so friendly and helped her calm down and adjust to being at a new dentist. They were very patient and understanding. I would recommend them to anyone and will be moving my other children as well.
I absolutely loved this place from the moment we stepped in the door until the moment we left. The ambiance of the facility is very inviting. The decor catches the attention of both the parent and child. The staff were so friendly and polite. Dr. Shawn has great bedside manner for a dentist (there is such a thing right? LOL). Watching the manner in which she spoke and attended to my son allowed me to see the passion she has for what she does. I look forward bringing my children here for many years to come. #GoGATORS
Positive experience from start to finish. I was about to give up on finding a dentist for my special needs daughter but then I called Tallahassee Pediatric Dentisty. After trying several dentists in the area that would not attempt to treat my daughter we finally found a caring office. The knowledgeable staff took time to sit down with me to discuss treatments options for my daughter. I would highly recommend taking your child to this practice.
Very professional, friendly and informative Dr. Hanway, Miss Lauren and the receptionist (my apologies for forgetting her name) were all very professional, informative and friendly to my daughter and I. My daughter had an exam, cleaning and x-rays done and miss Miss Lauren was extremely soothing to her needs. They offer your child the opportunity to watch tv while completing their services and rewards your child on a job well done! I would definitely recommend Dr. Hanway.
Dr. Hanway is The Best!!!!! My daughter went in today for a visit to get rid of the sugar bugs and was not very happy about it. The dental assistant and Dr. Hanway were so patient with her. She talked my daughter through the entire process. Great friendly staff!!!
Comfy, friendly, and professional We had our first-ever dentist visit for my newly turned 2-year old, and we are so glad we chose Tallahassee Pediatric Dentistry! The staff was warm and friendly, helpful, and timely. I loved that Dr. Shawn allowed my son to sit on my lap and lean back and lay his head in her lap, he felt safe and comforted the whole time! Everything is clean, the waiting area is awesome for kids, highly recommend!
First visit! Best pediatric dentist and staff! Our 2 yo son had his first visit and our 5 yo daughter had a check up and did x rays. We were thrilled w Dr Shawn and staff! I would HIGHLY recommend them to all! Clean office, perfect for kids, and great overall visit!
Amazing Experience! My daughter is 3.5 years old. She had her very first dentist appointment today with Dr. Hanway! It was amazing, she actually had fun! The staff was very cordial and ensured my daughter was comfortable every step of the way. The office is very nice and kid friendly. I would definitely recommend to anyone. Thank you Tallahassee Pediatric Dentistry!
We want your first visit to be smooth sailing
How you can help the appointment run smoothly
We do ask that when you accompany your child for treatment, you assume the role of a silent observer. Your presence is greatly enhanced if you play a passive role because if more than one person is speaking to the child, he/she may become confused. The presence or absence of the parent sometimes can be used to gain cooperation for treatment. There may be times when the child’s experience is enhanced by parent’s absence to gain the patient’s attention, improve compliance, avert avoidance behaviors, and establish appropriate dentist-child roles.
