From 5 dentist offices and a traumatized 4 yr. old in exactly one year. He had one traumatic experience after another. Granted he’s not as verbal as most but he understands just fine and is very stubborn when he doesn’t want to do certain things. I called the minute I found them and I’ve felt welcomed just from that first phone call. The squeezed him in right away after listening to my story. He was hesitant at first but one toy later, 5 minutes of trust and another 5 minutes of entertainment he opened up. They cheered him on from start to finish literally. I was so amazed! No tears, no running away nothing! He called me once and when he did the smile on his face was all the relief I needed! The staff at Joyful Smiles are simply amazing. I highly recommend! You will not regret it!

My son and I had such a great experience here!! They were so pleasant, very professional and created a friendly environment. They made sure my son was comfortable and explained everything to both of us. I would recommend this office to any parents for their children.
