What our Patients are Saying
“My 3 year old son had such a great first experience on Thursday that this morning when I said it was time to brush his teeth he said Mama, go to the tooth doctor again?! with a huge smile; telling him no broke my heart. I will certainly recommend Roots to anyone & everyone, & we will never go anywhere else.”
“You guys ROCK!!! The staff was extremely nice and answered all my questions. By the time I left, they made me feel very comfortable and confident with my child’s treatment plan. P.S. I never leave a review until now!!”
“Dr Tatford is amazing & hilarious and a delight to see interact with his young patients! My little patients are teenagers now, but we don’t want to even think about moving on from Roots Pediatric Dental! Thanks for all of the years supporting these great smiles!”
“Grant was running late because of a test at school. The staff waited an extra 20 minutes to accommodate him. THAT does not happen very often. His appointment was at 4:00 and we got there about 20 minutes late. How outstanding was that! Total wait time was less than 5 minutes after WE arrived late.”
“My family is so appreciative for the great care we receive at every appointment at Roots Pediatric Dentistry. All of the staff members go out of their way to make it a comfortable, enjoyable visit. Dr. Reviere and Dr. Tatford treat their patients with kindness, compassion, and patience. They take the time to explain and answer all questions from both the patient and parent. Could not ask for a better experience, my kids love going to the dentist!”
