Covid has changed a lot of how businesses operate. However my two sons last visit was still comfortable, fast and easy. The staff make all the difference! Thank you for continuingly giving amazing service over years and now through these Covid times.

My daughter has been frighting by the dentist but now that we go with Route 66 she’s been getting the confidence and liking the dentist more and more. Hands down the best dentistry that I have ever gone, that they actually work with kids that are afraid of the dentist couldn’t be more happy with them. Thank you sooo much at Route 66 for all your help and support because they work with you as a parent as well love it and super grateful for the whole staff...

A Non-Traumatic Approach

Being a dentist for kids requires a special set of skills. Our children’s dentists take every care to ensure your children are comfortable throughout their visit. Our dentists never force treatment on a child. We avoid any traumatizing experiences that may prevent your child from coming to the dentist in the future. Our staff and dentists take the time to explain what we are going to do before we start and discuss all viable options with parents. We also encourage parents to stay with their children through every step of treatment. We strive to provide an environment that is candid, transparent and friendly for all patients, parents and staff members. As always, we welcome patient reviews, feedback and suggestions.

Orthodontics

All of our orthodontic services are performed by a certified orthodontist, not a general dentist. Our orthodontic specialists offer a free consultation to kids up to the age of 18! After a thorough evaluation, the orthodontist will explain in detail your individual treatment plan and your treatment coordinator will go over all insurance benefits, costs and payment options. In some cases, we can even offer same day braces so you be on your way to a straighter, beautiful, healthier smile in no time!
