Our family loves Growing Smiles. We have been going for about seven years and the staff is pretty much all the same. It must be an awesome place to work! We' never had a negative experience and in fact, we look forward to going. Mr. Thirsty and the stuffed animals with a full set of human-like teeth are always a huge hit. I'll be sad when my kids outgrow our pediatric dentist. See More

We have been taking our kids here for a few years and we love it! The kids actually look forward to going to the dentist. The entire staff is amazing! Highly recommend.

The dentist is nice but the staff isn't that great. They provide quality work but at their convenience. Waiting over an hour for a procedure is ridiculous. Then the staff tried to blame me for being early as the reason why they were late.
