Love the entire experience. Dr. Grady really knows how to handle kids and make the trip to the dentist fun for the kids. Amazing modern facility!
- no waiting in the office. Receptionist knew my child was coming. Welcomed her well enough, where she was comfortable enough to walk with the sweet dentist assistant who showed my child all the amazing tooth brushes, tooth paste and stickers. the Dentist was patient with my child explained everything where she understood all. Ever since her visit with Dr. Grady, my child Brush and Floss and asks me often when can she see the dentist again.
The dentist was very patient & kind. She talked the patient & parent with an open mind and compassion.
We've see Dr. Grady since my daughter chipped off a baby tooth at 15 months. She is great with kids, super patient and takes all the fears away. Staff is friendly and provides good information for parents as well.
