Worst place! Would give less then 1 star if I could!! They Will use every opportunity to do work on your child as long as you have Medicaid they can charge with out question but the min you have private insurance, they won't do work that needs to be done unless your willing to pay ALL up front expecialy if its not EXACTLY what they suggest! They do not take parents opinion seriously & do not allow you to go back with your child & when my child said One of his caps hurt after being put on the dentist said it didn't & dismissed him. ITS STILL BOTHERING HIM A MONTH LATER! One of his teeth needed a little filling, they put the filling in poorly & it came out the next day! Then I asked them to put it back in & they wouldnt said it need to be capped so I let them cap it, then the cap broke off, put back on 3 more times & it kept braking off!!! So then they had to pull it b/c it abscessed!! All b/c they didn't put the first little filling in well! Do not go here!

Dr is absolutely terrible if you don't agree with her treatment plan she will quickly dismiss you. They do not allow you to go back with your child. Dr wanted to do root canals and caps on my childs teeth. I brought my child to get a second opinion and they said she just had a couple cavities that they would fill. Beware!!!!

Dr. Deyoung does not allow parents to go back with their kids after the first visit. My 3 year old, shy son did not do well with the 2nd visit when he had to have a crown and his dad could not go back with him. My husband let them tie him down so they could do the dental work. I called the office to ask why they wouldn t in such a circumstance with such a young, shy child let my husband go back to tell him to behave and everything would be alright.The said it was their policy. They gave me other pediatric dentist phone numbers to try. I called the other dentists and some let parents go back, but because of the driving distance, we chose to try Dr. Deyoung 1 more time. However, before he could even go back, they sent us a letter saying our children were no longer patients. I called the office; told them I thought they should consider letting parents console their children in special cases like my sons. They told me they no longer wanted my kids as patients. I cannot believe a dentist would treat kids like that and facilitate fear of dentists. As a teacher, I know that not all kids learn or react to things in the same ways. Meeting each child s individual needs is the most important thing we as adults can do. Obviously, Dr. Deyoung does not share this belief. Totally bad experience!

Dr. DeYoung has bizarre practices. Parents are not allowed back in the area where she and her staff work on the patients, even when the parent would like to quietly observe what is going on or has some questions/concerns to talk to the dentist about. Also, the parents never have any contact with Dr. DeYoung at any point during the child's appointment--the parents are only allowed to speak to the dental hygienists and never the dentist herself about concerns they have about their children's dental health. I would not recommend this dentist.

This office was GREAT!! My child has sensory issues and does not like things in his mouth. I thought going to the dentist would be a nightmare with him. The office staff was able to clean his teeth and get x-rays!!
