What people are saying about us

Right when we walked into Dr. Nick's office my son was enamored with all the toys and gadgets offered to the kids. He had a blast in the waiting room and absolutely loved the train circling above the patient chairs! Dr. Nick put my wife and I at ease immediately with his knowledge and instruction and is incredibly kind and friendly with the kids! Once my daughter sprouts her first tooth she will be going to First Tooth as well! I wish my dental trips were this fun when I was young!... See MoreSee Less

We recently had our first visit for our two kids at First Tooth. I had been to another dentist with my oldest child once previously, and it was a night and day experience. Dr Nick and his staff were SO good with the kids. I couldn't believe my almost three year old let them do such a thorough exam! He and his assistant were so calm, comforting and knew all these tricks to get the kids to cooperate- it was a great experience! We found out about some new tricks to help us brushing at home as well. The office is SO nice and perfectly clean. The waiting area for adults with awesome coffee machine/water plus the fun waiting area for kids with tablets and a bunch of fun animal characters on the wall, there's a cool train and TVs everywhere to keep the kids happy and just enough distracted, they thought of everything! I can't recommend this office highly enough; it was an awesome experience which I had been nervous about (two kids, both young, not much dentist experience). Will be back.... See MoreSee Less

Even though I'm an adult, Dr. Nick found time to do an urgent filling for me on very short notice.
The filling was for an unusually large cavity, so he had his work cut out for him, but he and his staff were able to execute big time without any complications whatsoever.
He also did an outstanding job of explaining all of the important issues along the way, and I walked away happy and healthy.

His office is turned this 27-year-old into a bright-eyed youngster as I enjoyed Star Wars on the overhead screen without a care in the world.
Would recommend 10/10

I have nothing but praise for Dr. Nick, after my son fell and hit his two front teeth on the Thanksgiving holiday, Dr Nick called back this worried mama and got us in the next day on a non-patient day. He was kind, gentle and very engaging. The office is beautifully catered to children, my daughter who was just along for the ride thoroughly enjoyed herself as well. Excellent experience!...

We love Dr. Nick! My son dreaded brushing his teeth and trips to the dentists were horrific until we started seeing Dr. Nick. He's wonderfully skilled and very patient with our son. Our son had a few cavities that Dr. Nick addressed openly and honestly, so as a mom I was at ease knowing that our son was getting the best and most age appropriate care possible. That made all the difference to me. I can't imagine trusting my son's dental care with any other dentist.... See MoreSee Less
