We use easy-to-understand terminology to eliminate confusion when your child visits us. We want to make sure your child knows there is nothing to fear when going to the dentist.

Atmosphere

A trip to the dentist can be fun! Our office is brightly colored with movies, cartoons, video games and a super friendly team that loves to work with children.

Our kids actually like going to the dentist now! Dr. Matt does a great job reassuring my 5-year-old how important it is to keep her teeth clean. She was very nervous on the first visit, but we got through it without tears. We've even had a major procedure done with no major trauma--a significant achievement considering it was a root canal. 
Dr. Matt has shown a high level of care with our children. We are very pleased with our experience at this location.

Dr. Hillman and staff are amazing. Two of my kids are absolutely terrified of dentists thanks to a bad experience in Lawrence a few years ago, so I was very worried about how they did things. However, they worked with me to alleviate all of my fears and let me stay in the same room with my son, which a lot won’t! Once they had him in there, they explained what they were doing to him patiently, avoided telling him anything unpleasant that might upset him (like shots—he seriously had no idea, I was SO IMPRESSED!) and told him he was doing great throughout. He’s no longer fearful at all. Love this place. Would highly recommend to anyone!

AMAZING!!!! 
We took our 15 month old for his first dentist appointment and the staff was incredible! 
From the phone call to make the appointment all the way until the end. Everyone was very welcoming and kind. The dentist was so gentle and kind and sang songs while examining our son’s teeth. 
The waiting area was very clean and even had a photo booth app so we could document our baby’s first appt. 
I would definitely recommend them. I’m so glad I read the reviews here on Yelp and made the appointment. They were amazing! 
The dental assistant even sent my baby a card in the mail saying she was his new friend and looks forward to seeing him for his next appointment! 
They were patient, kind, and knowledgeable! 5 STARS!

Love Dr. Matt and his wonderful staff. They were able to get my 21 month old AND my 3 year old teeth cleaned and examined all without any tears! Just smiles all around. We have had baby teeth extracted here due to an unfortunate accident as well and would have no one else care for our children's smiles. I am a professional dental hygienist, and I am very critical when visiting dental offices. No complaints at all from me here. Fun colors, coffee (yes, please!), toys, movies, video games, TVs above the dental chairs, the sweetest and most patient staff ever, lots of friendly faces, digital X-rays for low radiation exposure, and excellent dental care. I highly recommend you check this office out!
