Your kids will be all smiles when you take them to The Smiley Tooth Pediatric Dental Specialists. Here, Dr. Chou and the compassionate team of dental experts are committed to providing the best possible experience for kids. In fact, Dr. Chou wants every visit to not only be easy for children but also enjoyable.
“We have a fun, friendly environment. We really want to make children feel comfortable,” Dr. Chou says. The practice features an interactive floor and walls that let kids play games. Each room also has a screen on the ceiling for children to relax and enjoy a movie during their visit.
You can accompany your child and be an active part of the exam or wait in the reception room — whatever works best for you and your child. “Our goal is to make it a pleasant visit for the kids,” Dr. Chou says.
For children who might feel nervous or need a little help relaxing during a visit, The Smiley Tooth offers various sedation options. Laughing gas can help children through less-invasive procedures like fillings, while oral conscious sedation and IV sedation can be helpful for longer or more complex treatments.
“We also offer silver diamine fluoride that can treat cavities in a non-invasive, fast, and painless way,” Dr. Chou says. “It can help arrest the cavity so it doesn’t get larger.”
Whether patients are coming in for a regular checkup or need treatment for a cavity or injury, Dr. Chou and her dental team enjoy building trusting relationships with families. She also enjoys seeing her patients grow up over time. “We see the kids twice a year, sometimes more,” she says. “They become part of our family, and it can be sad when they grow up and ‘graduate’ from the office.”
Over the years, hundreds of happy parents have left five-star reviews on Google. One patient raved, “Amazing. They are angels in human form. The office is such a loving, kid-friendly place.”
When it comes to kids, Dr. Chou understands that unexpected things can happen — and often after hours. “We want to be there when our patients need us,” she says. “If someone gets hurt in the evening or on a weekend, parents can call the office and get in contact with one of the dentists on our team. We’re always there for our kiddos.”
Outside of work, Dr. Chou, a self-proclaimed foodie, loves to hike, read, and spend time with her husband and kids. “I really value the relationships in my life,” she says. “I want to have meaningful interactions with people, and I’m fortunate to be able to do that daily in my life.”
