This Dental Experience is a Mom, Kid Pleaser
University Dental Associates in Rochester treats Oakland Township family with kindness and respect.

My kids actually count down the days until they get to go to the dentist. We just went the other day and once again they were delighted with the whole experience. Of course, the fact that they haven’t experienced cavities yet certainly helps, but mostly I think it’s because we are lucky to have an extremely kid-friendly dental office.

We go to University Dental Associates in downtown Rochester. They’ve been in Rochester a long time. The office is friendly, clean and comfortable and we’ve never had to wait long, which is especially nice for a mom with several kids in tow.

We go to Dr. Tyler, who is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Sometimes we see Dr. Kennedy as well, who also does a great job for us. Both dentists have an easy, friendly manner with kids, which I appreciate.

One nice thing about University Dental is that it will schedule me and all my kids within the same 60-90 minutes, putting us in separate but close rooms so we don’t have to spend most of an afternoon at the dentist. In fact, I happen to know of a family with six kids who goes to University Dental and is given the simultaneous use of nearly every room in the place.

From a mom’s perspective, the team of dental hygienists is one of the best reasons for going to University Dental. What a friendly group of ladies they are! They completely understand what it’s like to be a mom, they are wonderful with my kids and they bend over backward to give us a positive, convenient experience.

I have lain in the dentist’s chair with a new baby on my chest while they dealt with my teeth without disturbing the baby and I’ve had them pull out toys to keep my busy toddlers distracted while I was having my teeth cleaned. They remember me and my kids and are unfailingly kind.

They chat with my kids, putting the kids at ease and explaining what they are doing as they clean my kids’ teeth and teach my kids how to brush and floss. And they hand out prizes from the prize basket at the end of the session.

When we leave the office, the kids want to go back again.

I feel good, because I think my kids are starting off as well as they possibly can in the world of dental care.

Accidents Will Happen

Unfortunately accidents do happen, and when they involve your teeth you want to go somewhere where the dentists have experience in these matters. At University Dental Associates we have not only been taking care of our current patients in these times, but for the past 25 years we have been the practice that treats Oakland University Athletic department needs. When there is a sports related injury at OU we are the office that gets the call to provide the emergency services. This has given us the opportunity to provide for and gain experience in these complicated cases.
