What our patrons say about Jordan Creek Pediatric Dentistry

“Everyone was so friendly here! From the front desk to hygienists to dentist we met, A+. My 3 year old liked them and they made her feel so comfortable! She loved that they sang a little song while looking at her teeth. So much so she was singing it on our way home! Highly recommend looking into bringing your kids to Jordan Creek Pediatric Dentistry.”

“Everyone was so amazing with my 3 year old - they took things slow to make sure he was comfortable, and stayed positive, calm, and collected, even when he got scared. Such an incredible experience, and we are so happy we found a great dentist to bring our kiddos to!!”
