My 2 year son fell and bumped his front tooth. Several weeks later the tooth started to show signs of darkening. We scheduled an appointment with Dr. Snodgrass at the Cool Springs location. We felt extremely welcome when we entered the building as his waiting area is fantastic and very kid friendly. When it was time to see the doctor, we were taken into a room and waited to be seen. Needless to say, my son was terrified being at the denist as he did not know what was going on. I made sure to try and make it a fun experience for him. Dr. Snodgrass came into the room and with no introduction asked me to put my son in the chair so he could examine the tooth. At this point my son became histerical and the Dr. did nothing to calm my son and kept looking. I picked my son up and at that point he told his assistant to schedule a pulpectomy. He did not offer up to tell me what was going on until I asked. He basically told me this was my only option to avoid an absess and pulling of the tooth. Needless to say, I got two second opinions the next day and BOTH doctors told me it was absolutely unneccessary and would be very tramatic on my son. They both said that the best option was to wait and see if any infection develops and that more than likely my son's tooth was fine and would be there until his permanent tooth arrived. Since the appt. at Snodgrass/King I have learned that they on numerous times have tried selling services that are unnecessary and $$$$. Needless to say I have found a pediatric dentist that has my child's interest at heart and not $$$$.

Pros: Excellent Waiting Area

Cons: Dental Care/Selling Unnecessary Services

The kids like it (which is important), but the office staff told me I had to call the insurance company on my own to determine what was covered. Additionally, my daughter had xrays in November and they did xrays again in May at which time I questioned a) the need and b) the coverage. I was assured it was necessary and covered but guess what ... NOT. AND although they told me they would call to schedule follow-up work, I never got called. In the end, I've had much better dental care elsewhere and for the prices they charge (above and beyond what is covered by my good insurance), I expect more than a video game and a latte.

From the moment my children and I walked into this dentist's office, we knew we were in the right place! Not only is the kid-friendly environment great, but the staff really knows how to work with children, most of time bending down or getting on their knees to speak to my children at their level. I was very blessed to have Dr. Snodgrass himself see both my children on their first appointment, and it was very apparent that he loves working with children. He also took the time to answer all my questions. I was very, very impressed, and highly recommend this dentist office.
