“The Pediatric Dental Specialist at the Grand Island location are very friendly. Right from the moment we walked in until the moment we left, everyone made sure my daughter had a great experience. They talked to her and showed her how all the tools work to clean her teeth, to make sure she was comfortable with how everything works. Because of their patience and friendliness, my daughter had a great experience and did not freak out once for only being 3. Very happy and pleased with the overall appointment.”
