I love this dentist. She was nice and friendly. The staff were nice friendly and helpful. My daughter needed to get something else done and I wasn’t able to reschedule for another day because of my work schedule, so she stayed open a little later to do the procedure. I really appreciated the services here. I just moved here from Michigan and I am glad I chose this clinic.

Dr. Carpio is professional, personable and has a great bedside manner with younger and older children. I love the diversity of her staff and how good they are with kids. She has multiple waiting rooms for patients and parents that have televisions and magazines for entertainment. When my oldest child had to have his teeth pulled in preparation for orthodontic work, we were called that evening and the next day to see how he was doing! I am very happy that my son's friend recommended her to us. I am hard to please, but am very satisfied with Dr. Carpio, her staff and Kids and Teens Dental Place! Love them, love them, love them!

The customer service/dental service is below average. My child had caps on her teeth within a week she woke up in with blood clots on her mouth,on her sheets,and on her clothes. I requested an emergency appointment at a specific time and the admin laughed at me. Imagine laughing at a frantic mother! They squeezed her in and when we took her the admin stated that it wasn't an emergency because her tooth wasn't hanging out of her mouth. In the end,they could not tell us why it was bleeding and that it looked fine. Not only am I going to go get a second opinion to fix what was wrong but will never return to this place. They are unprofessional as well as in this case, clueless.

Dr. Cecilia Carpio is AMAZING!! She has a wonderful staff that is very friendly and professional. I would recommend anyone with toddlers/teens to make an appointment and be apart of their dentistry family!! Dr. Carpio has a special touch with the kids. My son is four years old and had a lot of dental work done and he did not cry at ALL!!!! That is because he was very comfortable (kids know when they are in good hands).

The lady at the desk have no manners requested a copy of the consent I signed for me to read through and she told me I have to pay for the copy. I asked if I can take a picture then she also said no, I have the 3rd option to read through it she also objected. I was so angry cos I know my right as a patient, then she gave it to me and apologized. Other than that over all experience they are wonderful people working there.

Quick and easy. Staff saw that I had a baby and took care of my eight year old without any hesitation while we waited in the waiting room. Even if I do have a wait time, I never mind, the staff is always friendly and they’re the same friendly faces for the past couple of years.

I think that she is good, Just not fun of her staff they can come off rude. Also, I didnt like that they cancelled my sons appt all because they felt like they couldnt reach me. And i confirmed over a email. Also, i told them that to contact me at work and they didnt but all of a sudden his appt was cancel. But other that that, i think she is okay .

When I did not agree with a suggestion Dr Carpio made, she turned to her assistant, addressed him and walked out of the room. She did not tell me if my child had cavities, give me the assessment of her teeth or anything that she normally does. I had to ask the assistant how my daughter's teeth looked. She was unprofessional and acted as if her pride was wounded because I decided to wait rather than going forward with her suggestion. She didn't even address my daughter anymore. In the past she walked us to the desk to check out and was very friendly...not this time. I won't be back! Customer service and professionalism is VERY important to me.

I took my 3 year old daughter in for her very first dental appointment ever and it could not have gone better. Every single person we interacted with was extremely professional, kind and informative. Both the hygienist, and dentist were very knowledgeable. My daughter was very much at ease and had a pleasant visit. There was nothing scary for her and the hygienist talked her through every step so she knew what was coming. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.

First time here and we loved it. Everywhere my son went I went, so made him less afraid of the dentist. They had a tv on the ceiling, so while he was laying down getting his teeth cleaned he was staying focus on the movie Trolls playing. Very friendly staff, talk to me step by step on his next appointment/procedure.

The Doctor who seen my daughter today said "Hi" in the beginning of the appointment, but he walked away after he was done without explaining anything to me as to whether the appointment went well or not. I asked the nurse "how did it go?" And she informed me that my daughter had 1 cavity on her back tooth. I would have liked for the Dr to speak more and inform me without me having to ask "How did it go?". Especially since my daughter had a cavity, why didn't he tell me?
