Dr. Deppen is a very thorough and caring pediatric dentist. He makes sure the children are relaxed, and tries to explain to them (when it's appropriate) what he is doing. There is a very nice waiting area for kids with toys, videos, games, a giant fish tank, and a train that goes above the room! And, after the appointment the kids get a sticker and a prize! My daughter told me yesterday that he was the best dentist in all of Michigan!
