The 10 Best Kid-Friendly Dentists in Utah!

Let’s face it: going to the dentist is not always fun. But it’s also no secret that dental work is a crucial part of everyone’s health, including children’s health. That said, it may be children who like the dentist the least. It’s important to find a dentist that your children like, so that the experience isn’t nearly as painful as it could be. The following 10 Utah dentists are some of the state’s best for kids! 

1. Mountain View Pediatric Dentistry of Farmington, Farmington, UT

Mountain View believes in having a dentist that truly gets excited about what he does—and that’s Dr. Barney Olsen. Olsen has completely ADA-approved residencies in both orthodontics and pediatric dentistry. Mountain View is a state-of-the-art facility with up to date technology and an enthusiasm for teaching young ones about the importance of dental care. Their goal? “To build a foundation for a lifetime of excellent dental health for each child in our practice.” 

2. Smart Pediatric Dentistry, Multiple locations

With locations in American Fork, Saratoga Springs, Spanish Fork, and Provo, Smart Pediatric Dentistry is—perhaps unsurprisingly—one of the state’s most popular pediatric dental practices. All doctors that work at Smart Pediatric Dentistry are certified specialists by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, meaning that after dental school, they attended two additional years of school focused specifically on pediatric dentistry. 

Because going to the dentist is a great way to end spring break. πŸ‘πŸ» #ItsEarly #IsItSummerYet

Any spaceship themed dental practice has got to be good, right?

Headed by pediatric dentist Dr. Scott Folkman (who grew up in Layton), the practice and its staff are incredibly kid-friendly. 

4. West Valley Pediatric Dentistry, Taylorsville, UT

West Valley Pediatric Dentistry aims to make dentistry as fun as possible for your children. With two head dentists (Dr. Samuel Daily and Dr. JD Reimschissel) the practice has an under-the-sea theme and services not only Taylorsville residents, but families from nearby areas.

Dr. Trace M. Lund and Dr. Kevin R. Markham love what they do, and it shows. At Provo Pediatric Dental, you can feel confident that you’re choosing caring and friendly staff and doctors, as well as a place where your children will feel comfortable and cared for. The practice also offers a variety of services that you may not find at your typical pediatric dental practice. 

7. Reading Pediatric Dentistry, West Jordan, UT

Another stellar pediatric dental practice, Reading Pediatric Dentistry is located in West Jordan. Dr. Tyler Reading is also a specialized pediatric dentist, meaning after finishing dental school at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, he completed two additional years of specialty training in pediatric dentistry at the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York. In addition, Dr. Reading is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. 

And this is happening.
