~4/30/09 Dr. Stafford and her staff are AMAZING with kids. I was surprised by how much time they spent with us making the visit easy and fun for my girls and answering all of my questions. If you are looking for a dental office that specializes in caring for your children,  this is the place for you. My girls love going to the dentist and getting their "princess" teeth cleaned.  Even after getting a filling, my oldest still loves going there.

~Dr. Stafford and her staff really know how to work with children. They explained everything to my boys and made it a positive and fun experience. Of course, the TVs
on the ceiling and all the special prizes helped too! Now they keep asking to go back so they can visit the baby turtles! Anne, SW Portland Mom of 2 boys (4 & 2)

I took my 3 kids to this pediatric dentist. They loved the toys everywhere and the
TVs on the ceiling! I was really nervous about my 5 year old because he has sensory
issues and has never had a successful dental appointment. But to my surprise Dr.
Stafford was able to do his exam in their 'comfy' room and her staff gently eased
him in to the 'big boy' chair. I still can't believe Elese did his cleaning! I'm so
grateful they took the time to make it so easy for all my kids, especialy Joey. Now
he keeps asking me to go back!

~We are very pleased with Dr Stafford and her staff. Our 6yr old autistic son had
alot of issues (dental and otherwise) and Dr Stafford took care of everything with
great results. Our 4yr old son is extremely shy and during his last visit, he
actually sat in the chair on his own (to my great surprise), which Dr Stafford
really encouraged and supported. Things run smoothly in this office, and the place
is so inviting for especially children. My boys are now quite comfortable about
going to the dentist. I've already referred WOS to several other families,
especially to those with autistic children also.

~I am a mom of two, whom used to work in the Dental field. I know how important finding a great dentist who is also great with kids can be. Dr. Bailey has a ton of experience with children, thus he has four of his own, and he is very patient and all about pain free dentistry for both his young and old clients. His staff goes above and beyond to make both your visit as a parent or patient and your child's the best it should be!

~She and her staff are amazing with the kids and make going to the dentist fun. - Sara, SW Portland Mom of 1

~Dr. Badger is amazing. Everything about her office is for kids only which made my kids feel special and very comfortable. Dr. Badger takes the mystery out of dentistry and gives the kids lots of prizes too (not candy, of course).  The coffee in the waiting room is a bonus for parents too!        Julie, NE Portland Mom of 2 (ages 4 and 1)

~We love Dr. Bourdette and her small staff.  When one of my children had a hard time at our previous dentist and he yelled at her (she was just 2 and scared), we were forced to find a new dentist.  We called around to a few and explained the situation.  Dr. Bourdette assured us there would be no yelling and was accustomed to working with children that might be frightened of the dentist.  She was very patient with my daughter and helped her get over her fear.  The office is very quiet and kid friendly, we are usually the only ones there during our appointment time. 
Sherri, Beaverton Mom of 4

~Dr. Bourdette is a Pediatric Dentist, and she and her staff have been absolutely fabulous with my kids!  She schedules only one child at a time, and I believe she does even the cleaning herself.  Her office is very kid-friendly and my kids feel safe there.   Heather, SW Portland Mom of 3 (7, 6, & 4)

What a wonderful staff they have in their office, and soooo kid friendly.  My daughter is on her second oral surgery, and Dr Downey and his staff have really been such a wonderful encouragement to our family through all her work.

~Dr. Kuhl and his staff are superb, especially with kids! The technicians who clean and prepare the kids for exams are patient and kind and always willing to answer questions. Dr. Kuhl is calm, quiet and gives wonderful information necessary for good dental care. The staff and doctor definitely makes the place, but they also have an awesome aquarium filled with saltwater fish.        Suzanne, Tigard Mom of 3

~This is a kid friendly dental office.  They have a little room off the waiting area for children to play.  Dr. Wieland is a dentist that you can trust.  He is very thorough and conscientious dentist.  He loves children and plays with them to relieve their anxiety. The hygienists do a GREAT job cleaning your teeth.   Mother of Two, Gresham

~I am sooo happy with the work he has done with my daughter I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a children's dentist. The staff is very friendly and the office is set up so cute. My daughter always wants to go back to the dentist, she was not scared at all!!!        Carrie, Tualatin Mom of 1

Our family loves taking our kids to The Kids Dentist.  The staff and Dr. Yip  arealways going the extra mile for us.  I trust them highly.  They have helped my kids get past some dental problems that I didn't think they could handle, and my kids
still love going to the dentist! We are glad we found a wonderful office for our

~Dr. Shebani and her staff are wonderful! Her office is all kid oriented...everything at kid level and style.  The exam rooms have different themes and are so fun.
Having an Autisic child is hard enough...getting one in a dential chair even harder.  Now my child looks forward to going to the dentist....not dreading it.  If you have a child who really dislikes the dentist....look no further that Dr. Shebani's office!

She is wonderful!!  My six year old daughter in the past has had to have Versed(oral sedation) to get her fillings done.  Dr. Crocker took the extra time and she got her first filling with just the novocaine!  I'm pleased and would recommend her to anyone with small children.  Her associates also are very nice and they take time to explain things to your children so they understand.  Highly recommend!

~This is a dental experience similar to taking your children to a girlfriends house
for a playdate.  The difference being the man in this story is not your girlfriends
husband, but your family dentist.  He is very down to earth, personal, funny and
professional all at the same time.

~I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Wilson 8 years ago! That first visit --- I was
bowled over by her gentle manner with my son and her ability to patiently listen to
my concerns and address them with competence. She and her hygienists helped my son
feel at ease in the chair and, through their gentle prodding, he learned all about
taking care of his own brushing and flossing. And he follows through--- mostly! He
had to have quite a few extractions, and they've always made sure to give him just
the right amount of sedation to make it as easy as possible for him. He had a choice
of videos to watch and that really made it easier. I also got to sit right there and
observe their amazing skill. These days, we also see Dr. Shawn who is great and
we're just as comfortable with her. The office atmosphere is welcoming and when my
son was little he loved the toys and videos. As a budding adolescent, he's content
to sit and listen to his Ipod!
