WHY BRING MY CHILD TO A PEDIATRIC DENTIST
A pediatric dentist is specially trained to treat infants, children, adolescents, and those with special needs. After completing dental school, a pediatric dentist attends a postdoctoral residency for two years to continue their education and focus on the treatment of children’s specific dental needs. The additional training provides a pediatric dentist the expertise to provide specialized care for babies, toddlers, children, and teens with unique health, behavioral, and developmental requirements.
Pediatric dentists are also more experienced in handling emotional and developmental issues that can have an impact on a child’s dental appointment. At Where Smiles Grow, our focused approach attempts to make dental visits enjoyable for both you and your child.

WHAT PATIENTS ARE SAYING
Our mission is to provide every patient with compassionate, innovative, and quality pediatric dental care in a safe, child-friendly environment. Our pediatric dentists are committed to educating our patient families about oral health in an approachable, professional environment. Here’s what our patients have to say:
“I cannot thank Where Smiles Grow enough!! We started looking for a different dentist a few months ago when we found out our 5 yr. old had a cavity. I wanted somewhere that felt more personal, where we had options for how to treat it and above all I wanted my child to feel loved and taken care of. From our first meeting we felt all this and more! I felt listened to as a Mom. And today her filling could not have been better. She walked out happy and calm!!” – Elyssa C.
“The administrative staff, dental hygienist and doctors are all lovely and work so well with my son. I was impressed that the first solution to my son’s cavity was not to drill. Incredibly thankful that they care about the child’s impression of the dentist to not create a fear. The atmosphere here is inviting and my son always looks forward to coming here.” – Rene P.
“I have been bringing my 3 children to the Latham Office of Where Smiles Grow for over 12 years… my oldest is 15, and they have always made the experience of going to the dentist a comfortable one for each of my children! Whether it’s for a cleaning, a filling or a tooth extraction, my children have never been afraid to go! Keep up the great work! You are a parent’s dream!” – Jill B.
