Dr. McNay is the kindest, most gentle dentist I’ve ever known. He treats our whole family and is so wonderful with kids that our daughter actually looks forward to seeing him.

Amazing customer service, relaxed atmosphere, and amazing dental care! -Bianca L.

My family is so happy to have found them to take care of our dental needs. –Shawne J.

Rodriguez, Alex, DMD

I feel like they are my extended family – my dental family! –Monica P.

Orthodontics

Francis, Oral, DDS, PC
Suwanee Orthodontics, Suwanee
Dr. Francis is the only orthodontics I know that has the school’s calendar accessible so appointments can be made for the children without conflict. He has a dry erase board to welcome new patients and it feels like he rolls out the red carpet.  -Patrice L.

Koch, Jacob, DDS
Koch Orthodontics, Loganville
A visit to the orthodontist can be very intimidating but not at Koch Orthodontics where they make all kids feel like rock stars! From the initial consultation to follow up visits, Dr. Koch and his staff are personable and make it all about the kids. They are knowledgeable, caring, and are not in the business to bankrupt parents for retainers or braces. When the kids walk in the door their names are displayed on a big board like they are coming to a fun attraction, not the orthodontist. You see the same technician each visit and always see Dr. Koch. They dress up during prom season and have a dance party when the braces come off. –Brandee A.

Long, Meredith, DMD, MS
Touchstone Orthodontics, Atlanta

Podray, Susan, DMD
Serenity Orthodontics, Cumming

Eaton, Jonathan, DDS
Eaton Pediatric Dentistry, Decatur
Dr. Eaton is an incredible dentist! He put my rambunctious and busy 2-year-old right at ease and was able to complete a full exam. He was knowledgeable, professional, and thorough.

My daughter had an emergency over the Christmas holidays while the office was closed and I left a message on the emergency number and Dr. Henry called me back herself, not once but twice! She even followed up after we visited the ER for the dental emergency while she was away on vacation. –Brandee A.

Hicks, James, DMD
Pediatric Dentistry of Johns Creek, Johns Creek
What truly makes this dental practice exceptional is Dr. Hicks himself.  He clearly loves children, and it shows.  He is so patient and kind.  My children love him, and I love that he takes his time and doesn’t rush. –Rose-Ann M.

Howard, Jaha, DDS, MS
A+ Pediatric Dentistry of Atlanta, Atlanta
A-Plus Pediatric Dentistry with Dr. Jaha Howard is undoubtedly the best pediatric dentist practice. They are extremely professional, but personable.

Overall, I really appreciate the environment they’ve created for kids and I’m lucky to have found such a gem. –Toiya T.

Lee, Susan, DMD
Children’s Dentistry, Atlanta
Dr. Lee is personable. She is open on Saturday, and there are emergency hours.  She has the BEST staff — the employees know my kids when they come and they have real conversations with the kids. My oldest child is 10 and I met Dr. Lee in an emergency situation. She also saw my 1.5 yr old and made her feel comfortable. Dr. Lee tells you what you need to know NOT what you may want to hear. –Teva W.

Madhiwala, Priya, DMD

Her office is beautiful and spotless, and hours are very convenient.  –Nadia S.

Powell, Wesley, DDS, MS, PC
Dentistry for Children and Teens, Atlanta
My son loves Dr Powell. He talks directly to my son and pals around with him and makes him feel comfortable. We love the games, LEGOS, and movies in the waiting room. There is never a long wait, my son isn’t happy about this because he can’t play the games!  –Christy S.

Procter, Nirali, DDS
Cherokee Children’s Dentistry, Canton
Children’s Dental Zone, Alpharetta
Dr. Procter has transformed both my children’s dental experiences. At my daughter’s first appointment, she screamed and cried. By her second appointment Dr. Procter had her calm enough to sit patiently through the entire exam and X-rays.  The office is clean and well equipped and all of the staff is friendly. Their hours accommodate school hours and their office is filled with every amenity to make the kids want to come back (entry tunnel, video games, tvs, prizes).  –Meredith S.

Roehl, Brad, DDS

Rossitch Pediatric Dentistry, Marietta
My son has mild autism and was always terrified of the dentist. Even just a basic exam was a battle. Dr Rossitch and his whole staff are understanding and patient. They do whatever they can to make him feel calm and comfortable. I wouldn’t take my son anywhere else. They answer all the questions I have and take time to explain everything. –Jennifer P.

Schwartz, Aaron, DDS
