What parents are saying about Dr. Kate 

Dr. Kate is MAGIC

"Dr. Kate Lambert and staff are AMAZING!!!!  It's like wrestling an alligator trying to brush my 2yo teeth.  Dr. Kate is MAGIC!  She was able to keep my daughter calm and cooperative.  They are taking extra precautions to keep everyone safe during this COVID crisis!  I can't thank them enough for enough for such a great visit and experience."
-Kate B

Very thorough and knowledgeable

"Dr. Kate Lambert was incredible and answered every question we had about our 5 day old's tongue/lip-tie.  We had her revised and Dr. Lambert and her staff were so welcoming, concerned, and wanted us to follow with a team of our pediatrician, lactation consultant, and follow up with her a week later.  Our little girl has healed beautifully and our latch is great!  We are now almost back to birth weight.  Very thorough and knowledgeable of breastfeeding moms/babies.  I would recommend her to anyone in the area!"

I would describe the office visit as going to Disney World

“I never write online reviews but I must in this case. Dr. Kate and her team are absolutely wonderful. My four-year-old is excited to go to the dentist because of the way she is treated at this office. They truly go out of their way to make the whole process FUN, even while having cavities filled...who would have thought this was even possible? I would describe it as going to Disney World and having your teeth fixed at the same time.”

My daughter can't wait to go back to the dentist

"My two year old loved her first dental experience with Jacquelyn and Dr. Kate!  She can't wait to come back for her 6 month check up.  She still talks about going to the dentist and loves brushing and counter her teeth now! :-)"
-Kassey H 

I couldn't be more pleased

"I took my 22-month-old son here for his first dental visit, and I couldn't be more pleased.  The entire staff was extremely kind, and the environment is ideal for small children.  There are plenty of activities in the waiting area to keep your kids occupied.  They even have a large touch screen video game for older kids.  The methods they use to keep toddlers calm during the exam are very effective.  They even gave him a ball to keep!  The dentist, Dr. Kate Lambert, has a great personality and she definitely belongs in pediatric dentistry!  My son was very comfortable with her.  She was very gentle with him yet she completed the exam quickly!  We will definitely be back, and I highly recommend this place."
