We Love this office! My daughter never had one issue with this office. My son who is a terror for any practioner is calm and cooperative for Dr. Bernadette. I would recogmend this office for anyone who's child has fears and phobias as the staff is excellent.

Flanders Pediatric Dentistry is a great place to take your kids...once they are no longer afraid of the dentist. This was the first dentist both of my children went to and I had similar experiences with both. My son's first visit was approximately 18 months ago (when he was 4 1/2 years old). My daughter just recently had a visit (she is 3 1/2 years old). Both of my children LOVE the office (fun toys and games, cheerful atmosphere). However, once required to sit in the dentist's chair, they became frightened and cried (a lot, I admit). I assumed that, since this was a pediatric dentist, the staff would be used to this type of behavior. They seemed to approach the children with little tricks to make them "comfortable;" however, if these "tricks" don't work, the staff falls apart. The staff (two different dentists and a hygienist) became visibly irritated and lost their patience with my children. A young male dentist actually told my son that if he didn't stop crying, he would send me (his mother) out of the room. I was so disappointed by the experience, but my son was enticed back by the "goody bag," which included a character toothbrush, lots of stickers, and toys he was able to choose.

I do have to say that my son was cooperative during his second appointment and was met with a VERY different attitude toward him. The hygienists for the "big kids" are great and my son now LOVES the dentist.

This is a wonderful place to bring your kids, for both dental work and orthodontia. The office is bright, cheerful and kid-friendly. They are highly-organized, and everything runs like a well-oiled machine. My kids actually enjoy going for cleanings or orthodontic appointments, because it is such a nice place to go.
