Let’s get real here…when it comes to selecting a dentist for your child there is certainly not a shortage of options (it seems like there’s a dental office on every corner in the Alpharetta, Johns Creek, and Roswell areas).
Most of those are general and family dentists and while most of them are great at treating adult patients, they don’t have the expertise that comes with 2-3 years of extra education and, more importantly, seeing kids, all day, 5 days a week (we love it!).
So then it comes down to selecting a “pediatric dentist.”
Again, quite a few places to choose from and all of them are going to say they are the best, but how do you really know?
Instead of writing a “marketing piece” for our office we figured we would just let our patients do the talking and combine it with a little bit of our own commentary. What we’ve done here is scour the internet, look for a few unique, amusing, and off-the-wall reasons that parents choose Children’s Dental Zone.
Here’s what we found:
1 Krista’s kids actually cheer (yes, you read that right) when they get to come to Children’s Dental Zone:
Nothing wins you a “parent of the year” or “super mom” award like selecting a dentist who your kids actually WANT to come see. We know that by creating a welcoming, fun, and exciting environment, your kids will want to visit us and we’ll take care of their dental needs at the same time. Win-win, right?
It seems impossible (I know I never wanted to see the dentist as a kid), yet here we have Krista, whose three kids love the slide and video games (we like to think they like our dentists and amazing team members, as well…or maybe it’s just the parents that like us).
2 Hannae brings her kids to slide down the slide 30 minutes before their appointment (#AmazingMom, #MyMomNeverDidAnythingThisCool)
Say what? Kids coming early to a dentist appointment because they want to? Our goal from the start has always been to have a space that eliminates the fear associated with coming to the dentist and replacing that with FUN.
We’re kinda like McDonald’s, except….instead of packing your kids full of french fries and chicken nuggets, they actually leave our office healthier than when they walked in:)
3 Caroline “Wishes Her Dentist Was This Fun”
Sorry, Caroline. We can’t make your dentist office as fun as ours (although we can write a strongly-worded letter to your dental practice, if you wish…kidding).
Besides, would it be weird if there were tunnels, slides, and a movie theater at a general dentist’s office? We try to go about things differently and we’re glad it shows! Little things really make a big difference and we see it every day at our office.
And by the way, Caroline, if you really need to crawl through a tunnel at a dental office you can do it at Children’s Dental Zone…we won’t tell your friends! Wink.
4 The Kids are “Begging Me to Come Back”
One of our favorite things to do at Children’s Dental Zone is give mom and dad a little downtime. As you can see from this review, this mom has a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old, so it’s probably pretty safe to say she doesn’t get a whole lot of “me time.”
Who ever thought you could get some time to recharge while visiting the dentist? At our office, we think we’ve found the formula that brings joy to everyone who walks through our doors – from kids to busy parents!
Fortunately the kids love Children’s Dental Zone, had great appointments, and are apparently begging to come back. Who knew that kids could actually look forward to going to the dentist? Stranger things have happened, right? 🙂
5 Video Games + Tokens = No Fear For this Brave Kid
Sara’s son had to have a few teeth pulled due to an abscess and overcrowding. While some children might be scared, he wasn’t afraid at all because, according to Sara, he was going to “get to play video games upstairs and get a token for a prize afterward.”
If we can create an environment where kids aren’t fearful of coming to the dentist, then we’ve already won! We are so grateful that we are able to improve your child’s oral health while also making sure their anxiety stays at bay.
She had a friend recommend Children’s Dental Zone to her and now she’s recommending us to you (thanks, Sara)! Call our office and schedule an appointment for your child today and see what all the fun’s about!
6 The Entire Team is Amazing (Especially with Special Needs Children)
Okay, if you want to learn the “heart” of Children’s Dental Zone, just read the above review along with our response. Najwa and her children are amazing; and how Dr. Lulu and the rest of our team interacted with her youngest autistic son will hopefully give you a glimpse into how much we genuinely care about each patient. We love, love, LOVE what we do and who we serve!
Know that when you walk through our doors we see you and want to get to know you and what makes your kids – well, your kids!
We promise to take the time to understand your family and make every effort to ensure your visit is as smooth and welcoming as possible.
7 Six Emojis? We Must be Doing Something Right…Thanks, Marsha!
While we don’t claim to be completely fluent in emoji, we’re pretty sure this is a positive review! Thank you, Marsha, for all of the love and support you show to Dr. King and the rest of our amazing dental team at Children’s Dental Zone!
Our hope is that each patient leaves knowing that quality care also includes compassionate care. Quality and compassion go hand in hand and we can’t wait for you and your kids to see what sets us apart.
8 The Disney World of Dentists (Maybe the Single Greatest Compliment Ever)!
It’s no secret that Disney World is one of the greatest places on earth for kids, so when this precious little girl referred to us as the “Disney World of Dentists,” we were floored.
I mean, come on! For a dentist office to be compared to this magical place, we can’t help but to think that our vision of having a space that can be fun while also promoting oral health, means we’re on the right track.
Mom also wanted to mention that our facility is modern, technologically advanced, and that she was thoroughly pleased with Dr. King and Dr. Lulu.
9 Amazing Care, Amazing Team, Amazing Moms, Amazing Kids, and Amazing Smiles!
While we hope you were entertained reading this, what we really hope is that you understand our core message. Dr. King and the entire team at Children’s Dental Zone work hard each and every day to ensure that parents and children have an amazing experience while they are here.
We know that we are building a foundation of health for your child and we believe that every experience you have with our doctors and staff can be the difference in setting your family up for a lifetime of health!
We don’t think visiting the dentist has to be “traumatic” for a child, even if that is the experience you had growing up.
At Children’s Dental Zone, we’ve created a different type of practice with a different type of environment, to not only provide great dental care to your children, but also to positively reinforce that dentistry is a “good thing” and not something that should be feared.
By helping kids to develop the right attitude regarding dental care at an early age, we hope to instill healthy oral care habits in your children that will last a lifetime.
If you’re looking for a pediatric dentist for your child, look no further than Children’s Dental Zone. You can schedule your appointment right here on our website, or if you’d prefer to meet us and “scope out the place” before scheduling your appointment, feel free to drop by our Johns Creek pediatric dental practice at any time.
We would love the opportunity to give you a tour of our office and show you how we can take care of your child.
We look forward to meeting you and the rest of your precious family!
