What Our Patients are Saying

Elgin Pediatric Dentist

IT’S THE PATIENTS THAT TRULY MAKE THE PRATICE WHAT IT IS

  • Dr Corey and the entire Team made our visit easy and fun! My three year old asked when he could come back to the dentist! The environment is bright, cheerful and upbeat- helping to mitigate any anxiety my kiddo may have about a dentist visit. We highly recommend them!!!

  • Dr. Matt came out and talked with is while our son had to numb up. My son was in tears. Dr. Matt not only made my son feel as he was in charge and safe. Dr. Matt made us as worried parents feel good about everything. Dr. Matt played country music for our son while he filled my sons tooth. Thanks, Dr. Matt!
