"My daughter had her first dental cleaning today and she had an absolutely fantastic experience. The waiting area is clean and the area where they do the actual cleanings is impeccable as well. The hygienist are very friendly and patient, but Dr. Jenni is the real star of the show. She is professional, friendly and takes the time with all of her patients to explain and listen to concerns. If you are looking for a pediatric dentist for your child, look no further and bring them here. Your child will thank you for it!"
"Excellent modern office, great new games for kids, awesome staff! Dr. Jeni is amazing with children!"
"Dr.Kong is great with my daughter.. she's patient and caring and my daughter just loves her. It's great to find a dentist that your 2year old likes and not be afraid of. We have a dental surgery coming up and I'm hoping everything goes well. Fingers crossed!"
"My 3 year old daughter is very resistant when it comes to her teeth. Her teeth are very sensitive. Dr.Jeni and her staff are VERY clever when it comes to examining and cleaning her teeth. My daughter even said she loves the dentist after her visit to Apple Tree. They were even able to do X-rays and got my daughter to keep still, which is a difficult task for us. The staff is amazing. Wait time was minimal. Meanwhile, my daughter was entertained her entire visit with either, books, toys or electronics. I am in awe of this place. I would refer anyone in a heartbeat!"
"Dr. Jeni and her staff are all wonderful. After a bad experience at another dentist we came here for a second opinion and I'm so glad we did. Dr. Jeni is great with children and made my sons dental experience as painless as possible. No fears of the dentist here even after some fairly extensive work."
