What Sets Us Apart
As the only infant to adolescent focused dental practice in the Lakes Region, Dr. Melissa Kennell, General Dentist, Dr. Matthew Smith, Board Certified Pediatric Dentist, and Dr. Timothy Smith believe seeing the dentist can be a fun and positive experience.
At Children's Dentistry you and your child are greeted with a warm and comfortable atmosphere that lasts throughout your visit, which helps reduce any anxiety your child may have. While checking in upon your arrival, children of all ages can enjoy the unique décor showcasing the beauty and splendor of New Hampshire, including real wood sculptures and natural trees immersed in hand painted murals. Your child can choose from and play interactive games and check out the fun colorful bubble wall. Parents can catch all the latest highlights about our practice on the informational TV’s.
We welcome and encourage parents to join their child, as we believe that good oral hygiene and education should be supported by the entire family.
Our leading-edge practice delivers state of the art oral health care, utilizing digital imaging and digital radiography (x-rays) to minimize your child’s exposure to radiation by 90% compared to conventional x-ray equipment. Parents and children can view the enlarged radiographs on flat screen monitors so that we can educate you and your child about their oral health. Be assured - we utilize the most advanced sterilization techniques to ensure your child’s safety.
Our open bay hygiene room is perfect for accommodating families of all sizes upon one scheduled appointment (we understand the need for convenience for busy families today). Painted on the walls are popular scenes from the lakes and mountains, that you are sure to recognize! If you look above you will see our train the “Molar Express” passing overhead the room.
Dr. Kennell, Dr. Smith and Dr. Tim are excited to offer private teen rooms, for when your child is at the age where getting their cleanings in the open bay hygiene room is no longer “cool”.
As well, we offer a private infant room where the children can play while the parents discuss and become educated on the best oral care for their child. We love to see children prior to their 1st birthday or upon eruption of 1st tooth.
Upon leaving your appointment, you will be checked out by one of our front desk greeters. While there you child will be rewarded for a great appointment by Bernard the Bear, and you will likely see a friendly face or two on the No Cavity Club wall of fame. Your child could also find their own face on TV if we find no cavities upon their visit.
We believe that your child will love our environment and experience. This will essentially create a trusting relationship with their Dentist and a positive experience with oral care and treatments. Children's Dentistry – Creating Smiles…lasting a lifetime!
