I am truly appalled at the treatment of my child by Dr. Spates...and this is supposed to be a kids only dentist! I took my daughter here for dental work based on reviews. She loved her consult and told everyone about her appointment to go back and how excited she was. We came back and had a tooth extracted and a cap put on, this is when things drastically changed. They did not introduce themselves to my daughter or myself, didn't explain anything that was about to happen to her. Instead after getting laughing gas the dentist came in with two other nurses and without a word to my daughter or myself the helpers physically held her down and the Dr. Spates gave her numbing shots in the mouth. My daughter screamed and cried and tried to get away. They left the room after the shots without speaking to us. Came back ten minutes later and again held her down and didn't speak to us or explain anything to her, or even try to relax her, the procedure was a nightmare of screaming and crying. My daughter has burst blood vessels under her eyes from the extreme trauma she was in and her crying. I am upset with myself for not stopping the procedure but I was experiencing shock and now regret not taking action. The only conclusion I can come to is she was in a rush and short on time and didn't care to take the time to speak or make my daughter comfortable in anyway. After a couple days to reflect the only way I can describe my daughter's appointment is that she was physically assaulted. She now has extreme fear and paranoia against the dentist that I will have to deal with the rest of her life. Previous to this she told me she wanted to become a dentist! I am so mad/sad over this ordeal and can not fathom how this is how they treat young patients, especially when they specialize in pediatrics only. I did call and speak to Dr. Spates the dentist and owner of Just Kidz Dentistry and she simply said that due to my daughter's age of 4 that it was common for her to have that reaction and that if I didn't want to be seen there again she could send my daughter's file somewhere else. I am not one to badmouth a business or make a fuss over things, but I have to speak out when it concerns my child and other children. Please consider carefully before taking your child to this dental practice..

I have known Dr. Mathes for several years, he is very courteous and professional and his office Team made me feel right at home. My teeth feel great and I know that Dr. Mathes practices with integrity, if he tells me I need a procedure I have 100% confidence that he has my best interest at heart. Thank you Dr. Mathes for being there when my teeth need you..
The Staff is very sensitive to my needs. They help me to understand what is needed and why. Friendly, approachable doctor. He takes the time to listen. Multiple payment options make the work affordable..
Dr Mani and Shelley are just wonderful. I had 2 wisdom teeth pulled and a deep cleaning in one visit and left with no pain. I was not kept waiting either before or between procedures. Just a great all around experience!.
