What Patients are Saying

  • “Best dentist ever! I’m 14 years old and used to hate going to the dentist, but Dr. Downey and the staff are so nice it makes it enjoyable to go. I’m not saying I count the days until I go, but I always leave feeling fresh and clean.”

  • “There is no worse feeling as a parent than seeing your child hurt, bleeding, and in pain, but that was us when our 3 year old fell at a trip to grandmas house. I was terrified as I saw my daughter’s mouth not only bleeding, but her teeth shifted up and inward. It was 10 pm (way past bedtime) when I called the office, and left a message. Within 5 minutes I had not only 1, but 2 missed calls from Dr. Downey. He told us to come in (it was a weekend and afterhours) and he was so patient, and calming. My husband and I said he treated her as if she was his own. When we left close to midnight, my little one was puffy, and sore, but smiling! We got a call from the office checking up on her and they asked to schedule a check in two weeks. This time our little one was thrilled to go back and see him again. The Doctors at Dentistry for Children treat their patients, little toddler or teen, like they are their own. They continue to amaze me, and we are so thankful for a good family business that cares for your little ones.”

  • “No more tears! My son had been going to our family dentist for a couple of years and each visit was filled with so such much anxiety and fear that he wouldn’t even sit in the exam chair alone. On the recommendation of a good friend, we decided to switch dentists and see Dr. Carolyn. Oh my gosh, what a difference! Is this the same boy? My son actually completed a full exam, cleaning, x-rays and fluoride treatment without a single tear. In the past, he never even got past the cleaning. He is no longer afraid of the dentist because he knows he’ll be going back to Dr. Carolyn and her excellent hygienists. This is THE PLACE for kids!”

  • “Dr. Ashley and staff are wonderful! This office was a recommended to me by a family friend and I am so glad she referred. My two children had a great experience at Behind the Smile. My son is autistic and usually gets very anxious at the dentist. Dr. Ashley and her staff made him feel very comfortable and he had no problems at his first visit (or the next two visits). My daughter also saw Dr. Ashley for her very first dental exam and she actually had fun! I also love that the doctors send personal notes after the visits. I will recommend Behind the Smile to all of my friends and family.”

  • “I have 3 daughters who quite eagerly ask me often, ‘When is our next dentist appointment?’ It’s all because they have been treated so well by Dr. Downey and his staff. My youngest one needed 4 fillings at the tender age of 4 and I thought it was going to make future dentist visits a really stressful event, but Dr. Downey handled it so nicely that he is my daughter’s ‘favorite dentist for ever!'”
