The staff are wonderful. From the gals
at the front desk, to the technicians and the dentists - everyone is professional and child friendly. They modify their language when talking to children and for the parents they take time to explain everything.
Personally, I also like that they use technology to its fullest. They have a mesmerizing and informative web page. Plus it looks like their patient records are all electronic with photos. They have a Facebook page and use email for appointment reminders.
Most importantly, my child loves visiting them and looks forward to her visits.
Great doctors who work with children
all the time. Dr. Cindy is the original and is very respected in the community and by her peers. But all the other doctors are very qualified and good too, from Dr. Jeff and Dr. Darcy to Dr. Jenny and Dr. Tommy.
Their staff is well trained to not only work with children, but also very young infants and special needs patients.
They also have an on site Orthodontist, Dr. Lexie, to handle all orthodontic cases thus saving time and another unnecessary trip to a different office.
Lastly the office is very very kid friendly. There is a cool ocean beach theme throughout the office with surfboards, underwater creatures and an aquarium. Not to mention TVs everywhere showing kids movies and a video game area where kids can play games before and or after their visit.
I wish this place had been around when
I was a kid! My son (age 11) actually ENJOYS going to the dentist!!!
Weideman Pediatric Dentistry has several different treatment areas catering to different ages/stages and needs, including one room for kids with special needs. They have two areas for xrays, and there are a couple of areas where kids can entertain themselves if they have to wait between procedures. They also offer little extras that help make the visit more comfortable while kids are in the chairs...sunglasses, headphones with music, tv's mounted in the ceiling, and more!
My son has seen several dentists here including Dr. Weideman and all have been kind, caring, engaging, and concerned. They spoke not only to me but also to my son. We always leave with my son happy (even after a cavity being filled!!!!) and the feeling that they really care about my son's needs.
I will be sad when we move next summer...think I can get them to move with us?
Where to start? This place is AMAZING!
If I could give them more than 5 stars I would. Like another reviewer wrote, I wish there were places like this when I was growing up. You can just tell that customer service is #1 for them.
When we first started going here, they offered to give us a tour of their office which is beautiful and clean. The waiting area is inviting for both adults and children alike. They have a play area and flat screen TV playing children movies. There is also a large fish tank. The only downside is that they are so efficient at patient intake you don't get to spend much time in the waiting area. The area where they do cleanings has 6 small benches for the children to lie on. Above the benches are TV screens playing a movie. Another large LCD screen on the wall plays the same movie. While the kids wait to be seen, they can play in a pirate area that has video games or they can play in the toy area. They also have a treasure chest and stickers for the kids after they have completed their appointment. The real bubble walls and ocean artwork on the walls are a nice touch.
It was simple, easy, and fast.
Love love love this place! Our daughter has autism and if we didn't have this resource in our area I don't know what we'd do! In the first few years, my husband and I would have to LAY on her to keep her in the chair, surely the bright light and sounds can be a nightmare when you are a child with hyper-sensitive eyes/hearing, but they have a nice quiet room in the back and staff that are trained and accepting. They have Renee who is such a calm and kind hygientist who helped explain every tool, every process and how to maintain the best dental health! Our daughter is 1 years old, has never had a cavity and eagerly attends each and every appointment without restraints, fear or anxiety. I recommend this practice to every family we know in the special needs community and their early id of our son's cross bite helped him tremendously! This office is a local treasure!!
This place isn't just a great dental
office, it's an amazing business. From the dentists to the office staff, everyone here is kind, enthusiastic and truly wants to take the fear out of going to the dentist. I had to take my daughter here when she was barely 1 year old, since my family dentist would not see such a young child. I was very concerned about my small child and they sweetly and very intelligently put my fears to rest, explaining every last detail to me.
Later, when we had to return for a more lengthy procedure, four of the nicest dentists came to help calm my daughter down. And they did the procedure so quickly and in such a funny manner, that even though my daughter was scared, she was laughing along with them.
Yeah, laughing while they did serious work on her teeth!
This place is AMAZING!!! Not only did they take great care of my children, they educated me. Who would have thought to floss your kids teeth? The staff here is very friendly and really care about you and your children. Everyone from the first phone call to make an appointment to the check out girls and everyone in between were very friendly and helpful. I highly reccomend this dentist office to anyone who has children. I now know going to the dentist will never be a problem for my children.
This place is awesome! I was raised in Folsom and came to Weideman Pediatric Dentistry as a child and teen. Even though I live in Folsom, the 15 minute drive to Citrus Heights was worth it for the care and friendship I received in this practice! I was a patient from childhood through my teens, so the assistants and doctors I saw were like my family. This is the only doctor's office I have ever felt comfortable being at from the minute I arrived for my appointments all the way until I left the office. Most of the staff has worked there from my first appt & through-out, so I was able to make a connection with them that allowed me to feel as if I was at home. Whenever I would come for treatment, I was always comfortable and everyone would check to make sure I was doing okay. They weren't just focused on the technical aspect, which made me feel at ease. I am expecting my first child later this year, and I can't wait until I am able to bring him to this amazing place! I know that if my child ever needs anything from a simple cleaning to a dental emergency (let's hope this doesn't happen) this practice will treat him as their own child giving him the same extra special care they gave me and give to all their patients!
Lets just start this place is AH-MAZE-ING!!! The staff is just so knowledgable, extremely helpful and have such patience with dificult children. (I know I had one) =) They are so great with children, especially special needs children. I have witnessed it. The doctors are gentle. My son was so "off the hook" worried about getting a tooth taken out (they call it a "wiggle") but the doctor and assistant talked to him and he did not even know it was already out. They have helped to make him a great patient.
