The Children’s Dental Center of Central Iowa Difference
Your child’s happiness and healthy smile are our top priority. Dr. Robert Wade, Dr. Jim Shealy, and our team at Children’s Dental Center of Central Iowa are passionate about pediatric dentistry. We love helping children develop positive feelings about their oral health and visiting the dentist.
Our team knows how important it is for your child to look forward to coming to see us. We understand that if we can help kids learn that seeing the dentist is a fun event, then they will have a positive attitude toward dental care as adults.
That’s why we do everything in our power to ensure every visit is filled with laughter and smiles.
Our Office Environment
Ours is a pediatric dental office where everything is tailored to our young patients: from playful, whimsical décor to TVs over every dental chair. Each of our team members loves spending time with our patients, and getting to know them as the remarkable individual they are. We learn about their lives and hobbies, and develop long-term relationships with each of them.
Your Child’s Needs
Your son or daughter will always be treated with respect and compassion, just as we’d care for our own child. We’ll explain things in a way they can understand, and we’ll encourage their natural curiosity and desire to be independent. By educating kids about caring for their teeth and gums, and showing them the best way to do so, we’re setting the foundation for great oral health for the rest of their life.
Before becoming a pediatric dentist, Dr. Wade was a child and family therapist for almost ten years. He specialized in caring for children with emotional problems and anxiety. Because of that clinical background and experience, he’s especially adept at understanding children’s worries and is able to connect with them. He spends a lot of time talking with each child, about dental health, and also about the child’s hobbies and life. Children trust him and often give him hugs at the end of their visits.
Plenty of Time for Your Child’s Visit
We understand that your time is valuable. That’s why we refuse to over-schedule and always ensure that we have plenty of time for each patient. Your son or daughter will not be kept waiting for the visit and Dr. Wade is always available to answer your questions.
