    Dental Emergencies

    Dental emergencies can happen unexpectedly and require prompt attention to address pain, prevent further damage, and maintain oral health. Dental emergencies for children are situations where immediate dental care is needed to address an urgent dental issue. Children may experience dental emergencies due to accidents, injuries, or sudden onset of severe dental pain. For the best dental care, visit Dental Care for Kids.   COMMON DENTAL EMERGENCIES FOR CHILDREN   KNOCKED-OUT TOOTH (AVULSED TOOTH)   If a permanent tooth is completely knocked out, it is considered a dental emergency. Prompt action can increase the chances of saving the tooth. Handle the tooth by the crown (avoid touching the root), rinse it gently with water if dirty, and try to reinsert it into the socket. If reinsertion is impossible, place the tooth in a container with milk or the child's saliva and seek immediate dental care.   BROKEN OR FRACTURED TOOTH   A broken or fractured tooth can cause pain and discomfort. Rinse the child's mouth with warm water, apply a cold compress or ice pack to reduce swelling, and seek dental care as soon as possible. The dentist will assess the extent of the fracture and determine the appropriate treatment.   TOOTHACHE   Persistent or severe toothache in children should not be ignored. Rinse the child's mouth with warm water and use dental floss to remove any trapped food particles. Avoid applying aspirin or pain relievers directly to the tooth or gums. Contact a pediatric dentist for an appointment to identify and treat the cause of the toothache.   SOFT TISSUE INJURIES   Injuries to the lips, tongue, cheeks, or gums can result in bleeding and pain. Clean the area gently with water, apply pressure with a clean cloth or gauze to control bleeding, and seek immediate medical attention if the bleeding is severe or does not stop.   THE BENEFITS OF VISITING AN EMERGENCY DENTIST   PAIN RELIEF   Dental emergencies often involve pain and discomfort. The child can receive appropriate treatment to alleviate pain and provide relief by seeking immediate dental care.   PRESERVATION OF NATURAL TEETH   Dental emergencies, such as knocked-out or broken teeth, can jeopardize the integrity of the child's natural teeth. Seeking prompt dental care increases the chances of saving the affected tooth or preventing further damage to neighboring teeth.   RESTORATION OF FUNCTION   Dental emergencies can affect the child's ability to chew, speak, and perform daily activities. Prompt dental treatment aims to restore the normal function of the teeth and mouth, allowing the child to resume their regular activities without discomfort or limitations.      In any dental emergency involving a child, it is crucial to visit Dental Care for Kids at 3235 N Towerbridge Way Suite #200, Meridian, ID 83646, or call (208) 888-7711 [tel:2088887711] to consult our pediatric dentist as soon as possible. They can provide appropriate advice, evaluate the situation, and effectively administer necessary treatment to address the dental emergency.

    A dental filling is a restorative procedure used to repair a tooth affected by decay, cracks, fractures, or wear. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed, and the tooth will be filled with a dental filling material. Children benefit from having their teeth filled early to prevent cavities from forming and address any discolored or decayed teeth. Your dentist will essentially “fill” your child’s tooth with a safe material to avoid further decay or discoloration. The filling will be shaped and polished to resemble the child’s natural tooth. It’s quick, easy, painless, and affordable!  THE PROCEDURE FOR DENTAL FILLINGS * Nitrous oxide is typically used to reduce anxiety and increase a child's ability to cooperate for treatment.  * The child may receive local anesthesia to numb the area around the affected tooth, ensuring a pain-free procedure.  * The dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth using a dental drill, leaving a clean and healthy tooth structure.  * The composite filling material is applied in layers and shaped to restore the natural contour of the tooth. A curing light hardens the material, ensuring it bonds securely to the tooth structure.  * The dentist will check and adjust the filling to ensure the child's bite is comfortable and the tooth functions properly. The filling is polished to smooth out any rough edges and provide a natural appearance.  THE BENEFITS OF DENTAL FILLINGS FOR CHILDREN  TREATMENT OF TOOTH DECAY  Dental fillings remove decayed portions of the tooth and restore the damaged area. By treating tooth decay with fillings, the progression of decay is halted, preventing further damage to the tooth structure.  PAIN RELIEF Tooth decay can cause tooth sensitivity and pain, especially when the cavity reaches the inner layers of the tooth where the nerves are located. Dental fillings eliminate the decayed part of the tooth, alleviating pain and discomfort.  PRESERVATION OF NATURAL TEETH Dental fillings help preserve the natural tooth structure by removing the decayed portion and filling the cavity. This avoids needing more extensive treatments like tooth extraction, which can result in gaps or misalignment.  PREVENTION OF FURTHER DECAY The risk of further decay in that area is reduced by removing the decayed portion of the tooth and sealing it with a filling. The filling is a barrier, protecting the remaining tooth structure from bacterial invasion.  Parents must encourage good oral hygiene habits in children, including regular brushing and flossing, a healthy diet, and routine dental check-ups. Early detection of cavities and timely placement of dental fillings can help prevent the progression of decay and maintain the child's oral health.

    Fluoride is a mineral that naturally occurs in water, soil, plants, and animals. It’s also present in many foods, such as fish, eggs, and rice. While small amounts of fluoride occur naturally in everyone’s water supply, tons of it are used to prevent tooth decay on our teeth by strengthening them — making them more resistant to decay. Fluoride treatments are a common preventive measure in pediatric dentistry to promote optimal oral health in children. At Dental Care for Kids, the primary purpose of fluoride treatments is to strengthen the tooth enamel and make it more resistant to tooth decay. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps prevent cavities by remineralizing the weakened areas of the enamel and inhibiting the growth of bacteria that cause decay. THE PROCEDURE FOR FLUORIDE TREATMENTS Before applying the fluoride, the dental professional will clean the child's teeth using a toothbrush and toothpaste with a gritty fluoride-free paste. This step removes any plaque or debris from the tooth surfaces to ensure better fluoride absorption.  The dental professional will paint a thin layer of fluoride varnish onto the surfaces of the teeth using a brush or applicator. The varnish adheres to the teeth and slowly releases fluoride over time. It is safe to swallow, and the child can eat and drink immediately after the application.  THE BENEFITS OF FLUORIDE TREATMENTS FOR CHILDREN PREVENTION OF TOOTH DECAY Fluoride is highly effective in preventing tooth decay, which is a common dental problem in children. It strengthens the tooth enamel and makes it more resistant to acid attacks from bacteria and sugary foods. Regular fluoride treatments can significantly reduce the risk of cavities and the need for extensive dental treatments in the future. REMINERALIZATION OF ENAMEL Fluoride has the ability to remineralize the weakened areas of the tooth enamel. When the enamel is demineralized by acids produced by bacteria, fluoride helps to repair and strengthen the enamel, making it more resistant to decay. This helps to prevent the progression of early cavities and can reverse early stages of tooth decay. PROTECTION FOR DEVELOPING TEETH Children's teeth, especially permanent teeth, are still developing and are more vulnerable to decay. Fluoride treatments provide an added layer of protection during this critical period of tooth development. They help ensure that the permanent teeth erupt into a healthy oral environment, reducing the risk of cavities and other dental issues. Fluoride treatments can significantly reduce the risk of cavities in children and promote the development of strong, healthy teeth.

    Pediatric Crowns

    A dental crown is needed when a child’s tooth becomes damaged, either from decay or injury and needs protection. A pediatric dentist at Dental Care for Kids will determine if a crown is necessary based on the child’s specific situation. Typically, a crown is used on baby teeth with a large cavity and must protect the remaining tooth structure. As the child gets older, their adult teeth will come in to replace the now-weakened baby teeth. However, if a baby tooth falls out before its time, it can lead to space loss and prevent a permanent tooth from coming in correctly.  THE BENEFITS OF PEDIATRIC CROWNS  Children are just as susceptible to tooth decay as adults, and pediatric dental crowns can be used to treat severe decay in children’s teeth. Since children are so prone to cavities, restorative dentistry often starts early in childhood to ensure that children have healthy smiles for life! Dental crowns are a versatile restoration that can strengthen weakened teeth and protect them from further damage.  Crowns are also beneficial because babies and children can maintain a normal diet and smile without embarrassment. If a baby's tooth is severely decayed, it may require a crown to prevent complications with the permanent tooth below. Dental crowns can also be placed over baby teeth that lose fillings to restore function and prevent further decay or damage.  THE PROCEDURE FOR PEDIATRIC CROWNS  * The child will receive local anesthesia to numb the affected tooth and surrounding tissues. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is also used by our pediatric dentists to create a calm and stress-free environment for children undergoing treatment. It helps alleviate anxiety and enhance a child's ability to cooperate during dental procedures. * The dentist will remove any decayed or damaged portions of the tooth, creating space for the crown.  * The appropriate size and shape of the pediatric crown will be selected and adjusted to fit the child's tooth. For stainless steel crowns, the dentist may need to contour and crimp the crown to ensure a secure fit.  * The crown will be cemented onto the tooth using a dental adhesive or cement. The dentist will ensure proper positioning and occlusion to ensure optimal function.  * Any excess cement will be removed, and the bite will be checked to ensure proper alignment.  Pediatric crowns are customized to fit the unique needs of children's teeth and can play a crucial role in preserving the dental health of young patients.

    Pediatric Dentistry

    As children grow, their teeth and jaws also grow and develop. Pediatric dentists specialize in treating young patients and ensure that everything is developing as it should. During their visits, pediatric dentists perform routine cleanings and take X-rays as necessary to monitor growth and development. They can also provide preventative advice to help patients avoid tooth decay and other common dental issues. In addition to regular dental care at Dental Care for Kids, our pediatric dentists can also help treat a variety of issues that many young patients have, including thumb sucking, pacifier use, poor oral hygiene habits, teething pain, dental trauma, and more. Having a dentist specializing in pediatric dentistry can benefit young patients and help them maintain good oral health as they grow into adulthood. WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON TREATMENTS FOR CHILDREN? Most children are cavity free when they leave the dentist, so there is no need for fillings or other restorative treatments. Instead, many pediatric dentists focus on preventive dental care to promote good oral hygiene habits that last a lifetime. This includes cleanings, fluoride treatments, and sealants. Children are also taught about proper brushing and flossing techniques to prevent cavities from forming in the first place. During the appointment, the pediatric dentist will also check your child’s teeth for signs of decay to identify any problems early on so they can be treated. This will help avoid additional future procedures, such as root canal therapy or crowns. Other common treatments that are performed on children include tooth extractions and mouthguards. Extractions are sometimes necessary if a tooth is severely decayed and cannot be saved with fillings or crowns. Mouthguards protect the teeth and jaw during sports and other activities where the face may be hit. These custom-fit appliances help protect the teeth and prevent them from becoming damaged.  THE BENEFITS OF PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY SPECIALIZED EXPERTISE Pediatric dentists have specialized training and experience in treating the unique dental needs of children. Dr. Whitt and Dr. Coletti spent two extra years after dental school to better understand the complexities of dental development in children, including the eruption of primary (baby) teeth and the transition to permanent teeth. Their expertise allows them to provide appropriate and effective dental care for young patients. PREVENTION AND EARLY INTERVENTION Pediatric dentists focus on preventive care to maintain optimal oral health in children. They educate parents and children on proper oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and dieting. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings help identify potential dental issues early on, allowing for timely intervention and preventing more severe problems. EDUCATION AND GUIDANCE Pediatric dentists educate parents and caregivers on proper oral hygiene practices, nutrition, and habits that affect a child's oral health. They provide guidance on topics such as teething, thumb sucking, pacifier use, and the importance of a balanced diet for oral health. This empowers parents to make informed decisions and establish healthy oral care habits for their children. The primary goal of pediatric dentistry is to promote good oral health habits and prevent dental problems in children. For the best dental care, visit Dental Care for Kids at 3235 N Towerbridge Way, Suite #200, Meridian, ID 83646, or call (208) 888-7711 [tel:2088887711].

    At Dental Care for Kids, dental sealants are protective coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to prevent cavities from forming. The grooves of the molars are difficult to clean, so many patients experience cavity formation over time despite regular brushing and flossing. When placed, the sealant acts as a barrier against food particles and plaque buildup, reducing the number of bacteria on the teeth and the risk of cavities. They are typically applied during a child’s early permanent molars erupt around age six, but adults can also benefit from using dental sealants.  THE PROCESS OF APPLYING DENTAL SEALANTS The dental hygienist or dentist thoroughly cleans the teeth that will receive sealants. This cleaning ensures the tooth surfaces are free from plaque, food particles, or debris. Once the teeth are clean and dry, the dentist may apply an etching gel or liquid to the chewing surfaces of the teeth. This etching solution creates a slightly rough surface on the enamel, which helps the sealant material adhere better to the tooth. The dentist will apply the liquid sealant material onto the chewing surfaces of the teeth. They may use a brush or a small applicator to spread the sealant evenly across the grooves and pits. The sealant is typically a tooth-colored or clear resin material that bonds to the tooth enamel. After applying the sealant material, the dentist will use a special curing light to harden and set the sealant. The light activates the sealant material, causing it to bond securely to the tooth surface. Once the sealant is cured, the dentist will check its placement and make any necessary adjustments. They will ensure that the sealant covers all the vulnerable areas of the tooth and is properly sealed. ARE SEALANTS SAFE? Yes, sealants are generally considered safe and nontoxic to teeth. Dental sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth and are a great way to prevent cavities on kids’ molars. This safe, inexpensive, and effective procedure only takes a few minutes. Sealants are made of plastic that coats the tooth to protect it from plaque and bacteria. This coating prevents food particles and sugars from being trapped on the tooth’s surface and causing decay. The plastic resin material comes in colors that make the sealants nearly invisible when your child smiles.  The primary purpose of sealants is to protect the teeth from cavities. Visit Dental Care for Kids at 3235 N Towerbridge Way Suite #200, Meridian, ID 83646, or call (208) 888-7711 [tel:2088887711] to determine if sealants suit your child's teeth and to discuss the best timing for their application.

For how well we were treated- me and the kids, their fun environment, their understanding staff, and how fun they aim the experience to be for the kids. We just went for the first time. I have four little ones, ages 8-3 and I had to have all of them with me. I was really worried about this, but everybody was so understanding. The dental assistant was so good. My son was really unsure about some of the tools she started to use, so she let him hold them and demonstrated what she was going to do. He still was unsure so she opted to not use them at all with him. I really like how she also spoke directly to my son, but also included me. Everybody was so patient with my brood. Even when my three year old went off looking for me by herself. She was patiently brought back by the same dental assistant that helped my son. It was such a wonderful experience for all of us, even though I have dental anxiety myself. My concerns for my children were quickly calmed."

"Highly recommend! This was my son’s first appointment at a dental office and he loved it. It was easy to see why with their fun lobby area and play room. The best part was how wonderful Dental Assistant Becki was! She was so gentle and sweet with my son. She let him touch something to show him it was soft before putting the tool in his mouth and even described the little x ray film as little crackers and was able to take perfect x rays very quickly without any mom intervention. Dr Brock was equally as friendly and gentle. They both explained what they were doing before doing it in a way a 3 year old would understand. I loved the whole experience and so did my boy! That’s so important to me. Thank you for being wonderful! See you again in 6 months!"

"Decided to get another opinion for my son and was more than satisfied with this clinic! We walked in knowing that our son would need to possibly be put under anesthesia for his procedure and sure enough they confirmed that. They made him and us feel so comfortable and at peace with the decision to love forward with it. The staff is truly amazing with children…one of the assitants said she had worked with pediatrics for 20 years and that the assitants had all been there 7+ years which assured me that they truly love working with children and are passionate in what they do! The entire experience was one we will never forget! They got us in same day and had my son’s appt for his procedure scheduled within 3 weeks. Not once did we feel like we were a transaction..which I have felt so much lately at other clinics! Im so grateful i found them!"

"Amazing!! The dentist and staff was great and the place is a child's dream! My 22 months daughter got home so excited to tell her dad about everything there. You guys do a great job ❤️ Thank you very much!"

"My son has really bad anxiety when it comes to dental appointments. Dr. Whitt and his team are so patient with us and very encouraging that someday it won't be such a dramatic thing for my son. They tone down every visit based on what my son is able to deal with that day. They don't push anymore than they need to. (Literally just getting my son to open his mouth is a struggle...) I really appreciate how patient and understanding Dr. Whitt and the crew are!"

"Great Dentist! Clean and friendly. Feel confident in trusting them with the care of my daughter."

"Our kiddo had a new tooth not coming in quite right as the baby tooth hadn't come out yet. The office got us in quickly for an appointment. The education they gave us and our child was thorough & easy to understand and removed any anxieties/concerns. They did an extraction in no time and with no discomfort at all. So grateful for the quick service and amazingly kind staff!"

"I have been taking my daughter here for years, ALL the staff have made my daughter's visits very comfortable and stress free from day 1. I recommend them to anyone that needs a good dentist for thier family, I will not go anywhere where else."

They worked with my daughter so well and explained everything and let her help so she was very at ease. I would definitely recommend this dental office for kids!"

"My son had an emergency abcessed tooth that needed to be pulled and a spacer put in. The quality of care is top notch. Dr Coletti and the assistants working with my son made sure to make him very comfortable with the treatment he needed and were so very kind. And I was grateful they were able to do everything in one office visit. Office is clean and fun for the kids. Had little trouble scheduling at first but may be in part due to asking for an emergency appt as a new patient. The front desk promptly called me back same morning when they had a cancellation to get us in. I appreciated that. Services are very expensive for self pay but that’s to be expected with a pediatric dentist. Overall worth it for the wonderful care we received. Was very happy with our first visit."

We were done in less than an hour, the office is SO cute, and the staff there are miracle workers. They give amazing care and individualized attention and somehow make going to the dentist something for kids to look forward to! Even the anxious child can feel at ease there. Never thought we’d say we’re excited for our next dentist visit, but we are!"

"There are no words to describe the team at Dental Care for Kids! The patience each of them have to work through anxiety and a million questions from my son truly amazes me! Becky hit it out of the park today!"

"Everyone here is always so considerate of your time. Never a long wait time when you arrive, hygienists get right to work, dentist is ready & waiting. My boys love all the different themed rooms. X-rays are always a breeze, which says a lot because my boys used to hate getting them at other offices. All the staff are friendly to the boys & do a great job explaining how to take care of their teeth, showing them the x-rays etc."

"great place, my daughter loves going to the dentist!! Everyone is friendly, she loves the treats!"

"Dental Care for Kids is professional from the first call. The office staff took all the necessary information and scheduled a quick appointment for our new patient appointment. The moment we walked in the office was clean, the staff was welcoming. My 3 year old was overwhelmed with joy to see a playroom. The playroom is kept extremely clean and is pirate themed. We just fell in love with Kim the dental assistant. She was calm, and loving toward my 3 year old son who is stubborn and and strong willed. She made us feel at home due to struggling with a big move and a new environment. I could not say enough about Dr. Coletti, this is definitely his joy, and passion. He was so wonderful towards my son. My son was nervous being in a new dental office. Dr. C has a great catchy song (which my son is still singing) and it was so helpful to calm him down. Dr. C's background is extensive, and impressive and makes me feel lucky to call him my child's dentist."

"Update- the first time I took my my daughter to Dental Care for Kids was 2.5 years ago. I have since had another baby and bring him here too. The staff and Dr Coletti are so great. They are willing to work with me and my preferences and are wonderful to my kids. I would and have recommended them to anyone seeking a pediatric dentist! Becky and Dr Brock were so patient with my crazy toddler! They answered all questions I had and were just overall, great! Grateful to have them as my toddlers dentist!"

"I was Dr. Whitt’s patient from ages 5-17 and was very sad to leave once I turned 18. My siblings also came here. Dr. Whitt was always so kind and caring, and, fun fact, I have the same exact name as his wife did before they got married! It’s been 5 years since I last came here and I still miss it. Highly recommend this office if you’re looking for a dental office for your kids!"


"We absolutely love Dental Care for kids! The whole staff is so nice and welcoming and they take amazing care of all 6 of our kids."

"This office is one of the best pediatric dental offices I’ve ever been to. And I’ve been to at least four in this valley. Amber the hygienist was fantastic! She worked with my very difficult and sensitive son and he hardly even made a noise. I’ve never met a staff that I’ve been so willing to bend over backwards to help my child feel comfortable and yet be successful at fixing the problem. He had a filling done & tooth pulled with hardly a peep. They put a weighted blanket on him to make him comfortable & keep his hands down. Why don’t other dentists do this? They were so kind & didn’t make me feel like my kid was weird or I was an overprotective mother."

"Dr. Joel Whitt is an amazing dentist!!! He is the best. He is kind and patient with kids. I have been to a lot of the other pediatric dentists and he is by far the best. He is great and his assistants are just as awesome. I highly recommend him. My kids had to have a lot of work done, they were really scared and not wanting to get started but the assistants calmed her down and made it a great experience. Going to the dentist is miserable but Dr .Whitt makes it a great experience."

"Amazing experience!! Friendly and professional staff. Office was very clean and totally geared towards kids. Not sure if I loved the play area more for my children or how quick our dental appointment was. Both were awesome perks for this busy mama. Dr. Whitt was fabulous! Friendly, answered all questions, quick overview of exam and just generally awesome."

"We love this office so much. We have always had an amazing experience. The dentist is so amazing. He’s SO GOOD with my son. All the hygienist we’ve had are so amazing as well. I’d recommend them to everyone!! I don’t know if they remember us every time we’re there but they sure make us feel like they do :)"

"Nice, professional, highly recommended this office. Dentist and staff are all fantastic!"

"Very competent staff and so amazing with kids. I have a dental background and was impressed with our entire experience! I’ll be bringing all my kids here."

Lots of gentle words and patience from the whole staff and everything is geared toward kids is the most positive and thoughtful way. Both Docs have been fantastic with my kids in both their better and worse moments and it’s so appreciated. I’d recommend them to anyone and am so happy to have a dental experience we love."

"I’ve been taking my kids here for around 11 years. Started with my son and now my 2 other girls are going. I love the staff and over all experience!! They take the best care of my kids!! Still won’t go anywhere else!!!"


"Absolutely love this place. My kids are excited to go to the dentist. It's amazing. They have a sign there that says something along the lines of, it's the dentist you wish you had when you were a kid- and it's 100% accurate. Even if they didnt have the playroom with boat, TVs in the ceiling, fishtank or treasure... the staff is amazing. Highly knowledgeable and so sweet to my daughter and making jokes with my son. Even my two year asked if we could stay and play. Cannot recommend enough."

"Everyone is so understanding and good with our kids!! Would recommend this place to everyone!"

"I came to this kids dental practice as a translator for 6 kids that spoke no English. I can not say one negative thing about the staff. Every single person in the office is super sweet, kind and caring. Thank you for the kindness and hard work!! Truly blessed to find a place that is open and honest. Highly recommend, you will not regret your decision, the children are definitely the priority here!"

"I called in the morning and was able to be seen the same day! Everyone that I talk to was super friendly. The doctor was very knowledgeable and obviously good with children. The office was fun and inviting and very clean. We definitely will be returning!"

"My son use to dread going to the dentist, we switched over to dental care for kids and now he’s ASKING to go to the dentist! The staff is kind, caring, PATIENT, and comforting. They keep a clean environment and are very good about rescheduling if kiddos are sick. I am so happy I was recommended here by our last dentist!! We initially were going to do surgery since my son was so scared of dentists and felt we didn’t have many options. We asked them to try and do his cavity filling without surgery and didn’t feel any pressure from the staff one way or the other. The first appointment he didn’t want to come in at all so we were thinking we’d have no choice but to do surgery, but by the end of the appointment he didn’t want to leave! 😂 All appointments since have been nothing short of amazing. I have nothing but great things to say."

"I am not one for change as it’s hard but today shed light on change is good with new dentist working on my angel and she actually enjoyed going for a filling. Very please with this office and how they work with children is amazing. Thank you for restoring my faith in good customer service in the professional field."

"Dental Care For Kids is the best pediatric dentist office in the Valley. My son had one of his front permanent teeth broken off by baseball and the other loose when I called 10 minutes before they were supposed to be closing. They had me come right up and took care of it. But not only did they help his dental emergency, they were so kind and compassionate to a stressed mom, a worried older brother, and a scared eight year old boy. Every experience we’ve had with them over the years has always been positive. Their entire staff are kind, and the best in the dental field. Thank you so much for your excellent service! I would highly recommend this dentist office to any parent to trust with their children."

"We have been coming here with our kids for years. Everyone is so nice and caring. It’s great having all four of our kids checkups at the same time!!"

With everything going on in our world right now with Covid-19 we appreciate that they were there and did everything they could for her without hesitation. We highly recommend Dental Care for Kids in Meridian!!!"

"Such a fun environment!! Most of the waiting room is the play room for kids! It’s so cool! And the receptionist is super nice and friendly! And the dental hygienist we had was super sweet! My 3 year old son loved her! The only thing was that he gave the dentist a bit of hard time. Nothing about the doctor was wrong. My son is just not too comfortable with men who isn’t his dad. But the dentist was super nice about it! Made us feel not so bad our son was screaming and not letting him look in his mouth. Said it happens with a lot of younger kiddos! Our whole experience was just the absolute best! Definitely recommend this dentistry!"

From the minute we walked in until our checkout, all of the employees were very friendly, kind, and efficient. Everything is made to be as kid-friendly as possible--from the play area, the TVs on the ceiling while in the dental chair, the prizes the kids get at the end, and more. I usually dread going to any doctor with my kids, but I am looking forward to our next visit to Dental Care for Kids!"

"Everyone is absolutely wonderful! Of course Staci is our favorite 🙂 highly recommend 👍🏼👍🏼"

"I am very HAPPY & SATISFIED with everything from the moment I walked in, to the time I walked out..They were great with my 3 year old daughter. We had seen a another dentists office who had her terrified of dentists on her first visit and then proceeded to put her care last priority.I am GRATEFUL for Dr Joel Whitt and everyone I met yesterday! They made my daughter, myself and grandpa feel welcome as well. We are going to hopefully be able to save her front teeth.Surgery is scheduled.

Also, they work so quickly our most recent appointment was for 10:30 and both my kids were done by 11:00!"

"My 3 y/o went for a teeth cleaning earlier today and had a great time. They really know how to work with a squirmy patient."

They gave us their opinion but left the ultimate decision for us to make. After having to extract my son's tooth they made him comfortable and even had him smiling when he left the office! We appreciate their quick response, and their ability to make kids feel so comfortable!"


"Office staff is super friendly and makes going to the dentist a fun experience for little ones! I would highly recommend them to everyone!"

"Dr. Witt and his entire staff are amazing!"



"Dr. Whitt is wonderful with all three of my kids (11, 8, 3 years). The hygienists/assistants are always so kind, patient, and make the cleanings fun for kids. We drive 45 minutes to his office because he is worth it! We have had exams, fillings, teeth pulled, etcetera... and every time I walk away amazed at how great the appointment went. I highly recommended dental care for kids and Dr. Whitt."

"Dr. Whitt and his staff are the best! I have two children with major medical complications. Dr. Whitt has been so gentle and kind with my son who was adopted internationally and had a background of trauma. My sweet son was terrified at first, and now is so excited about going to the dentist. My other son is autistic and nonverbal. Dr. Whitt just spent 20 minutes gently playing with him to see his mouth. His office staff scheduled us first thing in the morning because he has an immune disorder (limiting his exposure) and did everything possible to accommodate us. My son’s aide was with us to help and on the way out she said, “WOW. He is so nice.” We couldn’t ask for a kinder, more accommodating dentist."

"The staff is friendly and knowledgeable! We had a great experience. The office has a room just for the kids to play and watch movies."

"Always a great experience. Staff is very friendly which is needed especially when working with kids."

"We’ve been going here for years and I couldn’t imagine taking my kids anywhere else. They are always very kind and patient with us and we love the atmosphere."

"My daughter was scared to try a new dentist. as she has had the same one since she was a baby. They made her feel very comfortable. It was a great visit. she really liked them alot."

"My kids are 12, 12, and 17 now and we've been going there for about 11 years. One of my twins is autistic and mostly nonverbal. They will clean and examine his teeth while he's standing, if that's what he's comfortable with. They are so patient, friendly and just awesome."


"We have gone to dental care for kids for years. They just got a new dentist and our kids liked him. The hygienists are great too very patient and good with kids. The facility is awesome and our kids always look forward to going. Only negative thing is that some of the office gals are catty. While waiting you get to hear quite a bit of gossip and wonder what they will have to say about you and your child after you leave. Guess this is an issue almost everywhere however, most places are a bit more discrete about it. Overall a great place and would reccomend for others with kids."

"The staff was very friendly, My daughter was very nervous about going to a new dentist. She was very comfortable with the staff, and very happy."

"We had the BEST first experience at Dental Care for Kids yesterday! It was my 2.5 yr olds first time ever at the dentist. My 4.5 yr old has dental anxiety after a couple of bad experiences at two other pediatric dental offices in the area. It's been a struggle to get her to even just open her mouth so the dentist/hygenist could look inside, let alone do anything else. Yesterday, however, they were able to do so much. That was HUGE for her! Everyone was so kind and friendly and it was the most child friendly office we've been to yet. We saw Dr.Coletti and he was great, as was the lady who cleaned their teeth! My kids are already asking to go back. I highly recommend this office! We are so excited to have found a great pediatric dentist!"

"Best place for kids. Got us in and out in 30 min for all 3 of my kids."

"My seven year old had such a great experience with his first cavity. The care and professionalism by all staff members really set the stage on how kids should be treated and we are so pleased to say we will continue bringing our kids to Dental Care For Kids. Thank you for putting this mom at ease and making this experience one that my son will remember as a good experience... not bad one or scary."

"My daughter has some anxiety and sensitivity issues when it comes to many things in life, dental work included. From start to finish, Dental Care for Kids was AMAZING!! They made her feel so comfortable and when she said she was nervous they walked her through it like it was nothing!! As a mom it was an extreme relief and an incredible experience for me & my daughter!!"


"Our kids enjoy going to their appointments. The atmosphere is fun & comfortable. The Doctor & staff are kind & knowledgeable. The best part is they don't roll their eyes when we refuse flouride. 😆"

"I am very picky when it comes to people treating my kiddos. Dr. Whitt is the BEST! I even tried going to a pediatric dentist closer to where I live, but he just didn’t compare to Dr. Whitt or his awesome staff. The other dentist wanted my 4 year old to be put under anesthesia for her crowns, Dr. Whitt and his staff was able to make her feel comfortable enough to do it in the office. She still gets excited to go back. I can’t thank them enough!"


"Dr. Whitt and his staff are exceptional! My little girl did so well at her first appointment. He answered any worries or concerns. They were so gentle , kind and attentive. They have a great kid waiting area to play before their appointment to ease any jitters. Highly recommend!"

"The staff are always super friendly and the kids love Dr. Whitt."


"Everyone is ALWAYS so friendly and acomidating. We have 8 children and visit every 6 months. From ‘door to chair’ ALL the staff are genuine and caring. We recommend this office to all families and plan on staying with this facility adding to the 4 years we’ve already been going."

"They are great with my kids."

"We love Dr. Whitt and staff. They are so friendly, always on time getting in and out of the office and very professional."

"I was very afraid of my autistic 8 year old son having a major meltdown during a tooth extraction. They did such an amazing job of distracting him and encouraging him that he didn't even realize what had happened. He told me afterward that his mouth "felt funny", but that was it. They were so amazing, and I highly recommend this office if you want your child to enjoy going to the dentist."


"The staff is amazing! I loved how they worked with my 2yr old daughter when we needed to fix a chipped tooth that was causing her some sensitivity. The whole environment is so inviting and fun. I wish going to the dentist was this fun for me."

We found out yesterday that my son has to be put under and get a few cavities taken care of, as a mom I felt like I failed. My son, up until recently has been a huge milk drinker and it’s now effecting his teeth. The dental assistant (can’t remember her name!) and Dr. Whitt were very nice and gave me assurance, mostly made me feel like I didn’t fail. If you want a place where you can take your child that every person working there will acknowledge and treat your child like their own and without judgement this is the place you want for your child. All the cute fish tanks resembling Nemo & Dory to the Pirate ship and play area are really cool and will keep your child entertained throughout!"

"It was a great experience for my daughter. She has some developmental & speech delays and its hard to find "the right fit" for her needs. She always asks tons of questions & is very inquisitive about the things they're using in her mouth, (or whatever is happeneing at the time.) We needed a dentist as well as a staff, with a lot of patience to help her understand what's going on. They were incredible with her!! 👏🏼👏🏼 Everything went smoothly. It was short & to the point. Explaining everything to me as they worked. When it was time to leave she was upset because wanted to stay longer. She's already excited to go back. THANKS A MILLION!!!"

Both had major anxiety. Wow! Staci and Ashley were absolutely AMAZING. I have never seen more patient and happy and personal dental assistants. They were absolutely incredible.

"Okay, so today was my almost 2 year Olds first dentist appointment and I couldn't be more pleased with how it went! The staff was very welcoming, the play room was AWESOME! We were taken back fairly quick and they allowed my son to bring a toy back with him. They gave my son a tooth brush to take home right as he sat down, so he was pretty entertained! The best part was how comfortable they made him feel, he was able to sit on my lap and lay back onto Dr. Lewis' lap for his exam, they didn't force or rush things. After he got a gold coin to pick a prize! We will definitely be going back in 6 months!"

"Been taking my two kids there for years and love it. They understand that certain kids are a little more scared and the techniques they do to lessen the childs fear is wonderful. I couldn't believe they were even able to get into my child's mouth. They also teach the kids about brushing as well while they hold up a mirror and point to areas they should focus on more.
