    Advance Parent Reviews

    I took my daughter to Advance Pediatric Dentistry for her first ever dentist appointment. I was so nervous because I thought the whole experience would be awful with a toddler. I was completely wrong! The entire staff at Afton was amazing! They took such great care of my daughter and made her feel very comfortable! The staff was very sweet and comforting. We got through the whole appointment without a single tear and a toy monkey! I 100% recommend Advance!

    This was our first time at Advance. My 6yr needed an extraction. The dentist did such a great job. The next day he was playing like normal no pain no swelling, no soreness! The staff and dental assistants are equally as knowledgeable AND kind. They explained their treatment plan and costs. I just can’t say enough good things about them! WE WILL ABSOLUTELY be going back with my 3-year-old! If I could give 10 stars I would !!!
