We are the Top Rated Local® pediatric dentist in Las Vegas for a few different reasons, one of which is that we have two convenient locations — one in Henderson and the other in East Las Vegas (Charleston).
Obviously, having our location be within a reasonable driving distance from our patients is fairly important, but it’s far from the only factor worth considering while you are trying to find the right pediatric dentist in Las Vegas.
While we will be the first to admit that we have a horse in this proverbial race, we hope you find the tips listed below will come in handy whether you are in the Las Vegas region or elsewhere looking for a children’s dentist. So without further ado, let’s get to the aforementioned tip providing!
Check Out Online Reviews
Let’s suppose you are at the very beginning of your search for a Las Vegas pediatric dentist. Perhaps you are new to the area or to being a parent in the first place. Regardless of the specifics, you know you need a kid’s dentist you can trust.
Where should you start? With the internet, of course! While the internet isn’t always the best place to go for technical information (unless you know where to look), one of the things it’s best at is helping consumers find reliable businesses to work with. We recommend checking Google Reviews, Facebook, Top Rated Local®, or Rateabiz to find out what people who were once in your shoes think about some local options.
For our part at Anthem Pediatric Dentistry, we are quite proud of our online reputation, in terms of both quantity and quality (you need both to be confident about pursuing a business of this kind of importance). Our Top Rated Local® shoes we have an average rating of 4.87 stars out of 1,984 reviews on four verified review sites! On Google alone, we have over 1,000 reviews with a 4.9 star rating average. We are confident that is among the very best in Las Vegas and beyond; here is one such satisfied parent with a glowing review of our pediatric dental services:
“My son was previously seeing another dentist and I just couldn’t handle them anymore they were terrible. The first time I called to make an appointment Tammy was so kind and helpful, she explained everything and addressed all my concerns. My son ended up having to get one of his teeth pulled (due to the last dentist). Geralyn the back office lady was seriously AWESOME!!!! She is the most genuinely kind person to be with kids. She made the experience not only great for my son but also great for a parent. Dr. Kinney was also really good. Gentle and very quick with the procedure. We will be with this dentist as long as my son is a minor and he is only two!!” – Emily F., Five Stars, Rateabiz.com
Thanks for your kind words and trust, Emily!
Ask Your Parent-Friends
Asking parents who you know for recommendations is one of the best ways to progress your search for the right children’s dentist. As popular and efficient as online reviews are, word-of-mouth recommendations are going nowhere. Why? It’s simple — the people you know and trust won’t lead you astray because you’ll be able to track them down and ask them what on earth is wrong with them!
We kid, but the point remains; asking your friends and family is a sure-fire way to get great advice. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about the atmosphere of the office, the professionalism and kindness of the staff, and how the overall experience was for both them and their child. You want to make sure that the parents you ask have had interactions with the actual dentist rather than merely a hygienist, as you need both to get a sufficiently clear picture of what you can expect from the pediatric dental office you are considering.
What Specialties Do They Have?
Perhaps you have a child whom you know will need specialty dental services, such as orthodontic treatment or otherwise. It’s worth checking to see if the family dentist you are considering has any specialties to offer.
At Anthem Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we have a Las Vegas pediatric orthodontist on-staff. Our orthodontic services include:
- Traditional metal and ceramic braces
- Self-ligating braces
- Invisalign® for children
- Dentofacial orthopedics
In addition to our orthodontic treatments, we also provide dental cleanings, x-rays, and three different sedation options to ensure your child remains comfortable and calm during their treatment.
Visit The Dental Office
Whether you are considering Anthem Pediatric Dentistry or not, we will always recommend taking a visit to the dental office you are strongly considering before scheduling your first formal appointment. Websites with fancy photos of their dental office are all very helpful, yes, but it’s important to take in the atmosphere for yourself. Don’t be afraid to bring your child either! After all, they are the one who will be receiving the dental treatment in the first place!
Good With Kids
While no two children are alike in their oral health or personality, it’s fair to say that, in general, children are more rambunctious than adults. Regardless of if your child has behavioral problems, among which might be a fear of going to the dentist, it’s important to find a children’s dentist with high-quality behavior management skills. Keeping your child calm during the treatment administered is almost as important as the quality of treatment itself; you can’t have one be successful without the other.
This is why we recommend looking for a dentist and staff who are very natural around children. You want your child to feel comfortable, accepted, and able to speak their mind, so finding a dentist with excellent social skills is paramount in promoting good dialogue. Look for warmth in their face and listen for it in their voice. It can make a marked difference in how your child feels about going to the dentist — both now and in the future!
