Dr. Laura has seen both of my girls since their first appointments. My oldest is 11, and she’s always seen Dr. Laura. She is amazing! She is kind, gentle, considerate and knowledgeable. We are thankful for her and all the staff. The office is run so smoothly. This is truly a wonderful place to take children for dentistry.

I CANNOT say enough good things about this place. We’ve been going almost 2 years now and it’s such a pleasant experience every time. Had a couple non-routine visits, chipped tooth today for example, and they do everything they can to help you, explain to you the situation, potential problems. But also assure you that things are probably fine, just keep an eye, etc. They don’t push procedures at all like regular dentists, they explain what can be done, and then explain when certain things aren’t necessary. They are not money hungry at all, excellent dentists, excellent hygienists/assistants. I will definitely keep bringing my kids here and keep recommending this place.

We love St. Johns Pediatric Dentistry! The lobby is adorable and the staff is amazing. Once you are in the back, the kids feel safe, comfortable and entertained while their exam is happening. Thank you for being awesome!

I'm coming here for years we love this little dentist office. Steph is amazing and kind. Almost as if they become family after so long. The dentist patient and caring and will work with your child and whatever their needs may be. Highly recommend. They have TVs in the back for the kids to watch and headphones to watch a movie while they're waiting.

I absolutely love this place. My daughter, now 2 1/2 has been going since she was 1. The waiting room keeps the kids busy and engaged. I have never waited really for my appointment either. The dental chairs have movies with headphones for the kids to watch movies of their choice which keeps them for being scared and the dentists are amazing. And once the kids are done with their visit they get to choose a prize. We recently went and Dr. Susie convinced my toddler to give up her paci. She then kept it and called me the next week to see if the wean went well if she could discard of the paci. Talk about personal touch. My 6m is already scheduled for his 1 yr visit. Love this place!
