What Our Patients Say

“At my first experience at the Penn Dental Medicine clinic, they were on time, personable, and exceptionally thorough. The medical history they took was the most thorough I ever had at a dental visit. They were patient and willing to answer any questions. I was assigned a dentist (student) who was friendly and concerned about all my worries. If the rest of the procedures go this well, I will feel that I have made a particularly good choice.”

– John

“I couldn’t have been more impressed with the quality of care and knowledge of the student dentist who I saw. She put me at ease and made me feel comfortable with the procedures being performed at every step of my care. I usually am nervous about going to the dentist, but am actually looking forward to my next appointment.”

Cavities are the most widespread childhood disease. Don’t let your children go a year without an appointment with the dentist. Going to the dentist is an important habit year-round, but your child’s back-to-school checkup is especially important in combating the most common childhood illness: cavities. Did you know that dental diseases cause children in the US to miss more than 51 million school hours annually? To help you get into the swing of things and start the year right, we’ve put together a set of back to school dental tips. Back to School Tip 1: Be aware of your communication. If you feel nervous whenever you think about going to the dentist, chances are that your child can probably sense something.
