I have been taking my daughters here since my oldest was 3. She had major dental work to have done, and this was when Dr. Hobbs was there, he did great with her, she had an extreme fear of strangers, much more so dentists, but she did wonderful. Since coming here for 3 years, she no longer has a fear of the dentist, and her (now) 3 year old sister has also been seeing them since she was 18 months now and she has no anxiety about seeing the dentist which is awesome! Now that it is just Dr. Dawes, I am not sure how our experiences will be, as we've only seen him once, but I am assuming the same quality of care will be given.

I am 38 years old & was a patient as a child. I was yelled at, pinched and "restrained" as a child. When I told my mom, the staff told her that I was making "those things" up. To date I have panic attacks when I go the dentist and have to take Valium for cleanings. God forbid I have to have a cavity filled or root canal. I DO NOT recommend this practice for pet dentistry needs, let alone human beings!!

Both of my children have gone here several times. My oldest is shy and wouldn't say anything to them, but later revealed to me that they would tell him to shut up and say mean things to him. My daughter who is now five said similar things as my son did, that they had said to her as well. Very mean, for being a children's dentistry!! I have found another dentist to take my children to, and would not recommend these people to anyone!! The sad thing is, is that the dentists themselves are good, it is the dentist assistants that are the ones who should be fired!! Had I had a known this sooner, I would not have let it slide!!

I was a patient of Dr. Dawes in the 70's when I had four six year molars that had to have crowns put on them. I was scared to death but though it was a long procedure, everything turned out great. I didn't even feel the shot he gave to numb my gums!

Fast forward to about 1998. I chose to drive 40 miles one way to come to this practice, convinced there was none better for my children. Ten years later and one more addition to the practice (Dr. Hobbs who is also wonderful) my husband and I remained satisfied customers and would recommend them to anyone (and have!).

My three year old daughter was scheduled for getting her four front teeth taken out because they were decayed..i was so nervous and scared..as i was sitting in the waiting room with her they called her in by herself..i was so scared..thank god my daughter didn't get scared to go in by her self..about 35 to 40 min..they called me back to see her..she was all ready to go..she had some gauze in her mouth to stop the bleeding..but she looked ok..no tears in her eyes or anything..although she looked kinda confused..i still think they did a great job...as long as i did not see my daughter terrified and screaming it's a plus for me..she never complained about anything after that and she healed quickly too.

We went to this dentist for our child because they accepted medicaid. This was a terrible mistake. They don't deal with children well at all and they are a pediatric dentistry. They PHYSICALLY restrain children who are uncooperative!! And they don't let the parents go back with the children to see exactly what is going on. My child came back tearful and terrified. They actually told us they had to restrain him. As if they couldn't have called us back to help. Awful people.

We were referred to Dr. Dawes and were hesitant to make the 90 min. drive to see him, but since he came so highly recommended and our last dentist was the dentist from hell, we went. I have never been so glad for a decision! He made all the difference for my daughter! They handled her so wonderfully, and made her feel right at home. She had had such a horrid experience, I never thought we could get her to peacably see another dentist!

They did x-rays and examined her and not a peep was heard from her! He saw some serious problems her previous dentist had overlooked and was able to fix them and even cap a tooth without so much as a wimper!!

I will gladly make the 90 min. drive to see him, because he is so worth it! If your child has ever had a bad experience, Dr. Dawes can help them get over that!!

PROS: Helps children get over their fears and deals wonderfully with them!
CONS:
