“I've been taking my son to Tender Smiles 4 Kids since he was 6 months old (he's 10 years old now). I've been with them even before they moved to their new location and I truly love them.  They are the best and their facility is beautiful. Highly recommend!”

- Allison C. 

“I just left with my special needs non-verbal son and I can’t even believe how professional, caring and nice everyone here was. It’s the first time I have ever had a pleasant experience and my son is 8 years old. It is very hard to get my son to see any Dentist. Looking forward to my son's next appointment! I’m so happy! Thanks for taking the time to provide my family with such an amazing experience. It is so hard for special needs families.”

Frequently Asked Questions About Pediatric Dentistry

Can you help children with special needs? 
Every child is unique, and we believe their dental care should be too. That's why our staff and doctors have special training in helping children with special needs. We provide sensory-safe and private rooms to help accommodate every child’s needs. Learn more about our special needs dentistry, and call us if you have any questions.

When should children start going to the dentist?
We recommend that babies have their first dental appointment before their first birthday. If you’re child has passed that benchmark, don’t stress. We are happy to give your child an excellent first dental experience no matter their age. 

What payment options do you have? 
We accept most major credit and debit cards, including those through Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. We also have financing through CareCredit. This service can provide low- or no-interest financing for major dental procedures or braces.

My child has a dental emergency. What should I do?
If your child has tooth pain, gets a tooth knocked out, sustains damage to their braces, or has any other dental emergency, you want to get help as soon as possible. If there is a life-threatening emergency, call 9-1-1. Otherside, call our office as soon as possible. If we are open, we will walk you through the next steps and schedule an appointment.
