I *love* this dentist's office!
We had an appointment today, and when I told my daughters about it this morning, my oldest got all excited and started dancing around the house, saying, "I love going to the dentist!" If that isn't the mark of a good children's dentist, I don't know what is. The office is very pleasant. The wait is not usually particularly long, and they have some Duplos and usually something child-friendly on a TV for the children to watch while they wait, plus a beautiful saltwater aquarium. My daughters love to watch for "Nemo" (there's a clownfish). The receptionists and dental hygienists are, to a one, all very pleasant, friendly, and good with kids. They treat "big kids" like big kids, not babying them, letting them feel grownup and responsible, but at the same time they are gentle and sweet with them. They do a great job with even screaming toddlers (last appointment I watched it with another family, and this appointment, unfortunately, it was my own screaming toddler). They have a "no cavi-tree" that children with no cavities get to stick their name to, which makes them feel special about not having had any cavities. They have goody bags ready for the kids when they leave, they let them pick out a nice small toy to go with it, and they give each kid a balloon. The dentist herself is very friendly, very good with the kids, and very gentle and quick. She's very good at keeping the parent informed about what's going on, what might be a risk factor for the future, if there are any special hygiene instructions, etc. And she's just generally very easy to talk to. I would *highly* recommend this dentist's office to anybody who is looking for a pediatric dentist in the area (I only wish they accepted adults, I'd switch to Dr. Talaksi in a heartbeat!).

Great place for kids!
Love Centreville Children's Denistry! They know exactly how to handle kids as it can be challenging w/ little ones. They do such a great job with both my kids! Dr. Talaski is wonderful and can handle any toddler!
