Meet some of our patients


Yesterday, I went in to have two cavities filled. Dr. Andersen and Miss Crystal were able to fix me up. I wanted to email y'all and say how thankful I am for Dr. Andersen's patience and kindness. Like most people, I get nervous going to the dentist, even though I know everything is going to be A-ok. Dr. Andersen's interest in our life and kind words and attitude removed any anxiety I had. I knew Dr. Andersen was going to be incredibly kind and help me through any issues I had. Lo and behold, she absolutely did. Thank you Dr. Andersen for showing immense kindness and patience during my procedure. I now look forward to my next appointment anxiety-free.


Great place for kids of all ages. I have 4 kids that were seen by Dr Blake. The front office was so nice to the kids and made them all feel at ease. The dental assistants calmed my 9-year-old who was very nervous because of past experiences and made the rest of them at ease also. Dr Blake was awesome and answered all of my questions and was really gentle with the kids. They all walked away loving the dentist and actually excited to come back. I would recommend East Mesa Children Dentistry to anyone looking for a great place to bring their kids.

J. Toscano

This office is phenomenal. From the atmosphere, the cleanliness, front desk staff, hygienists and of course the Dr. is amazing. My 2 kids and I left feeling organized, informed and happy. I highly recommend.

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 to our patients 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.
