Why Choose Us

OUR DENTIST is the heart of our practice. Dr. Helderman loves being a dentist and working with children. She aims to please and wants every experience to be amazing!

OUR FACILITY is designed for children, not adults. Most dental offices look like…dental offices.

Our waiting area has a fun and interactive play area for little ones, along with video games for the bigger kids. Check out our facility.

OUR COMMITMENT to you is to provide your child with the highest quality dental care. We trust you will find the atmosphere child-oriented, the staff friendly, and our service exceptional.

OUR TEAM is amazing! We specifically choose each of our staff members for their friendliness and ability to build relationships with children. Not every person was born to interact with children all day – but we were!
