I had a terrible time finding a pediatric dentist in the area, when I finally came upon Bright Smiles. So glad I did! We've always felt welcome at Bright Smiles, and never have to wait very long to be seen. My son is completely comfortable, and even gets excited when he knows he's going in for his checkup and cleaning. We've never had a problem getting an appointment, and even were accomodated with a last minute change in the past. The treasure chest for the kids gets two thumbs up from my son, he can't wait to go pick out a goody when he's done. The dentist and her staff take the time to explain what they are doing as to not overwhelm or scare the kids, and I think that's a rare thing to find in the age of rushed HMO doctors.
Another benefit is that the whole family can see the same dentist, as she isn't just for pediatrics! They even have some late evening and occasional Saturday hours, which gets two thumbs up from ME, as I don't want to take off work or have my son miss school for routine appointments.
