“This place is amazing! We get out of the car for my five year old son's six month check up and he says "Hey! I remember his place! This place is fun." He got to choose between grape or cupcake toothpaste, the clifford or spongebob bed, and marshmallow or watermelon flouride treatment. He was totally relaxed and had zero apprehension about going to the dentist. Everyone was friendly, patient and fun.”


“Dr. Sophie is amazing with all three of my kids. She works well with my nervous 5 year old, my crazy 1 year old and my 4 year old who has cerebral palsy and is very difficult to get to open his mouth. She is very patient and obviously loves kids and what she does. I highly recommend her.


“I truly can't express how much I love bringing my children to Dr. Sophie and her team! Absolutely the best dentist in town, her way with kids and her professionalism is just outstanding. Nothing forced everything is done with patience and love, we will definitely be patients for life!! Thank you Pima Ped. Dentistry.”
