I was wondering if anyone can recommend a nice child dentist for my children to see. I have a 3 & 4 yr old, NO dental insurance, so we would be paying ourselves. We live in the East Mesa area near Signal Butte. I have never taken my children to see the dentist yet and feel it is time. My oldest is a little dramatic, haircuts and shots tend to be a big ordeal, so someone who has patience with little ones is needed.

If you don't mind a bit of a drive to Gilbert... Dr. Quackenbush is the dentist we use. ( I have a 10yr old and a 7 yr old). Most of our friends and neighbors use him as well. The staff is excellent and you will get great care! His offices are on Val Vista and Ray Roads. Good Luck!

They have a pediatric floor that has murals, cute dental puppets and friendly dentists. I was a little nervous at first because all of the work was performed by the students, but there is always a licensed dentist on the floor. Here is their website it should have all of their information-if you can't find their phone number just let me know, as I think I have a business card somewhere;)

Wow S.. It sounds like you are very busy with 2 kids and 2 jobs as well. Hopefully one or both of those allow you to work from home. I love having the ability to work from home.
I'd recommend taking your kids to a pediatric dentist if you
have one in your area. My kids loved it and stayed with it for years. They even looked forward to going to the dentist. Good luck.

Impressions Dental at Riggs and Cooper is great. They are not very close to you, but the staff there is great with kids.

Hi, S.! It looks like you received several great responses to your question. I, too, have good news for you regarding locating a good kids' dentist. A couple of weeks ago, my 3 and 1/2 year old grandson said he had a toothache. We were kind of concerned about his anticipated behavior in a dentist's office (he had never been before). He has a normal child's anxiety about doctors and is VERY active. I called my dentist's office and asked about getting care for my grandson and could they recommend a dentist who works with children. They recommended their own Dr. Ellingson (Synergistic Dental Arts-Brown Rd & Lindsay), 2855 E Brown Rd, Mesa, AZ 85213, phone ###-###-####. My daughter took my grandson in for an appointment and, believe it or not, he did superbly well! We were astonished! Dr. Ellingson has two young children of his own and was able to put my grandson at great ease. He called his dental equipment "Mr. Bumpy" (that may have been the drill) and other funny names. My grandson did need a whiff of "laughing gas" once, my daughter said. Dr. Ellingson filled his little tooth and was done pretty quickly. He was even smiling after his appointment when they visited me at my house.
My family has been going to this practice since 1992. It is very clean and neat, and the staff is outstanding.
If you haven't found a dentist, please give this office a call. "Annette," in Accounting will be happy to discuss costs with you.
