My kids have both been seen here a few times; they are currently 6 & 4. My daughter gets very nervous at doctors' offices & in new situations, and right from the first visit, Dr. Bruce had her leaving the office smiling, even after her second visit, where she screamed bloody murder just getting into the chair to have the hygienist get started with the cleaning. Neither of my kids have ever had a cavity, so I can't speak to any surgical or dental problem issues, but Dr. Bruce seems to be one of those people who was meant to work with kids. He has an easy, gentle, jovial manner with them, and made my kids feel like they were having a special, fun time instead of any type of required visit (despite my daughter's fear of the cleaning.) The office was neat & clean, with cool toys for kids to play with, the staff is friendly and helpful (which is more than I can say for or dental insurance co,) and the kids always get sent home with basically a goody bag of fun, tooth-safe treats.
