My 5 yr old and 3yr old loved this place! The waiting room has a few options like video games and a nice flat screen to watch to keep the kids occupied and even a little social play area for littler kids . The ENTIRE staff was customer service oriented,which is important because going to the dentist with our kids is a challenge so it's nice to be treated ...nicely... which most places lack nowadays.The staff knew how to handle my children, explained what was going on and praised them and made them feel comfortable. The doctor was very thorough and explained in terms I could understand, explained to me what he wanted to do and why, which is more than I get from my own dentist. My daughter had to have four teeth removed. Everyone thought this was a bad idea but in looking at the X-rays,EVEN I could see why he wanted them removed.After much debate, we gave the ok to pull them. My daughter had a pleasant experience, easy aftercare and NO COMPLICATIONS! I let them know we were planning to move and without even having to ask, Dr.Richards informed me of what needed to be done next & when and gave me a print out of my child's X-rays so that I could bring it to our new dentist. I love it when you dont have to ask...they just give you what you need. TWO THUMBS UP!
I'm glad that I visited the office prior to going. I was pleasantly surprised when I went in. At first I thought...oh, know it's another shopping center office like the last one I went to. Turns out it was clean, nicely appointed. The staff was professional. The Dr. greeted us. The equipment was state of the art. Dr. Richardson did a thorough exam. He made sure that my daughter was comfortable at all times. He spent time with us explaining treatment options. I felt very comfortable the whole time. The flow of patient care was very smooth. Thank you!!! Denise Vanhouweling
I took my child to Dr. Richardsons office for a second opinion. I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and staff. It was so relaxing for both me and my child. The Dr. explained things to me that other dentists never did. He explained how cavities are made, now my child tells all his friends! I am totally converted to Adventure Smiles!
I was really nervous about my child is first dentist appointment. I didn’t know what to expect. My friend, who had visited Dr.Richardson is office with her son kept on assuring me that everything would be fine, It turned out great. The staff is great with the children, and they make it more of an adventure, rather than just another dentist appointment. Thank you Doctor and staff!!
