The paperwork seems excessive. It seems like I have to complete paperwork at every visit. Also, the cost seems excessive. My husband uses same insurance and seems to pay less for the same procedures. We are considering switching the kids to the other dentist office.

The front desk does not suit this dentistry at all. I expect a pediatric dentistry to have friendlier staff. The girl who seats at the front desk doesn't know how to treat patients.After a routine cleaning, at check out ,my 3 year old asked for his goodie bag and when I requested her for the goodie bag, she said that we had not paid for the service yet!! My 8 year old asked for a sticker and she said that for a child of his age they don't give stickers and it would be only the tooth brush and toothpaste!! I found this behavior very petty. After that visit I called the office to schedule an appointment for my 3 year old because of his front tooth discoloration. During the conversation,she said that the X-ray of the front teeth were not taken which sounded strange to me. Then two days before the appointment she called to let me know that the visit will not be covered by insurance except when it is an injury or accident. I called the office to let them know that i'd like to know if the discoloration was caused by a cavity or was because of the trauma he had a couple weeks back. Long story short, she mentioned that the X-rays of the front teeth were taken!! And I mentioned to her about what she told me before and she denied. When we went for the visit, she showed me the X-rays and also mentioned that we had a balance from our last visit and that the regular copay would be applied to the visit. After the transaction was made I noticed that I was charged more than what she explained to me ( which by the way was consistent at all; she kept changing the reasons that the X-rays and the cleaning were not covered...) When I asked for the explanation about the additional charge, she said that she could not explain to me and immediately she refunded that amount back to me !!! WHAT DOES THIS MEAN!! I am not sure if the business can survive with such incompetent administration staff! I have a lot of respect for Dr. Chandiwal but I will not return to this dentistry any more.

We had an appointment and still had to wait an hour because the doctor had left the office to run errands. Instead of an apology I was shamed for being (reasonable!) upset by saying “Thank you for your patience”. And the office policy that a parent can’t be present during treatment outweighted that my son was obviously very nervous and would have been much better with me in the room. I had put into the patient information that he is very sensitive for a good reason! Never have I been kicked out of a room during my kid’s treatment.

Doctor Shilpa handled all our children (11, 7 and 3 y.o.) very well. There was a problem with one of the kids not fully cooperating with the treatment, but the doctor did not give up and all the necessary procedures were completed as planned. The entire office -- the doctor, nurses, admin/reception -- operate very efficiently and professionally.

It was not the most positive. For a child dentist my family expected a more personable pediatric dentist staff. Staff was very dry and did not seem friendly. The people in our community told us not to come here but we came in aways just to discover they were right. Probably wont return wish them the best.

My child's first visit and it went amazing. Dr. Shilpa has you hold your child while they meet to enhance the comfortable environment. She sang the ABCs during the appointment to distract my daughter. After they were done she stayed in the room and talked to her and gave high fives. It reinforced that the dentist is a good place. We will definitely be staying with Dr. Shilpa.

We've brought in 3 kids for a checkup and cleaning. All 3 have been handled quite skillfully with no usual resistance even from the youngest one. Following the checkup, Dr Chandiwal gave us her assessment and outlined the treatment plan. All options have been made very clear. We are really looking forward to our dental problems taken care of.

She was very patient and listened to my concerns. My child has picked up bad habits of biting nails and chewing on LEGOs. She had a talk with my son about how these bad habit are no good for his teeth. He listens to his doctors more than his Mom. He is now trying to stop these bad habits. I am a happy Mom!

The wait area is great the play current movies for kids on the side and they have ipads with kids friendly games on the other side keeping the kids attention busy while they wait. They also have screens in the back rooms to distract the children while they work on them. I just transferred my other son to this location as well the staff is friendly and great. Very patient staff members as well.

I have been coming to Dr. Shilpa office almost 2 years, I was apprehensive about going because the drive is over 50 minutes away, but I want you to know that I got the most thorough care for my children I have ever had, and the doctor took the time to address my concerns and answer all my questions. This place is great! Outstanding service. I've always recommended Healthy teeth pediatrics!
