We are moms who get kids and know how to make them smile – and we get what parents want for their kids! Pair that with our decades of pediatric dental expertise and you have a recipe for whole-life dental health! We take an enthusiastic, friendly approach to every visit and take the intimidation out of pediatric dentistry.

Dr. Jennie is great! She remembers the boys at each visit, very thorough with exam and follows Covid protocols. We love seeing her twice a year. Thank you for taking care of my boys as if they were your own kids. ❤️

Absolutely worth the 1-hour drive to have someone as knowledgeable and experienced as Dr. Jenny for lip/tongue ties! Beyond that, the facility and staff are completely tailored to kids. Extremely safe protocols and very clean. Thrilled to have had our frenectomy done with Dr. Jenny! Thank you!!
