Pediatrician Recommended

High-quality service, professional and friendly. Dr. Kavita Kohli was recommended by our pediatrician 6 years ago. It was the best recommendation we could have ever dreamed of. Our girls love going to have their semi-annual dental check-ups and keep their daily dental hygiene in check thanks to Dr. Kohli. Thank you!

Fantastic with Kids

Dr. Kohli and her staff are fantastic with kids, whether it’s getting them to remain still for X-rays or get through routine cleanings. Her warm nature and sense of humor put the children at ease.

Look no further than Dr. Kohli's door

The office staff is welcoming and the environment is very family-friendly. The office has an airplane theme (what kid doesn't like to see an almost life-size image of the inside of a commercial plane's cockpit?). There is always a popular movie playing in the waiting room as well as in front of each examination chair. That alone does wonders for kids going to the dentist. Everyone gets sunglasses so the light won't bother them while being examined. There's also lots of parking in the lot. If you are looking for a pediatric dentist, look no further than Dr. Kohli's door

Knowledgeable and Caring Dental Practice

Dr. Kohli is the most knowledgeable dentist I've ever met, and her insight is simply superior to every other provider. She considers the whole child, not just their mouth, and that kind of thoughtfulness is rare. We are lucky to have found her for our children, and I would not take them to another dentist.

Top Notch Professionalism

There is never an appointment where we don't feel important. We are greeted and recognized as soon as we enter. Kavita and staff are very knowledgeable. Just as important, my daughter leaves feeling confident that she can succeed with good oral care. Smiles Galore!
