All three of my children have attended the Scripps Drive dental office, and though all 3 were originally under the care of another dentist at this office for years (until my 2 eldest turned 18!) until he retired, the ease of the transition and the "feel" of Dr. Birch was entirely stress-free, and I/we didn't give a thought to finding another dentist. My youngest daughter has been a patient of Dr. Birch for a number of years now, and we're very happy to remain that way until either my daughter turns 18, or he retires, whichever comes first. Thank you very much Dr. Birch and staff! You've all been great over the years!

I know this doctor: for several years after my youngest daughter's original dentist from this partnership retired.

Took my infant son to see Dr. Birch because he had two teeth that were starting to stain. Dr Birch did a 30 second exam from which he concluded that my son needed 8 crowns and nerve treatment. He stated that there were no other options. I wanted a second opinion and asked my dentist for a recommendation and was referred to Weidman Dentistry who performed a very thorough exam (using a pick to determine if staining/decay was superficial or deep) and followed up with x-ray to confirm treatment plan. They recommended fillings for 7 teeth (all superficial) and stated that x-rays showed no nerve damage. They also took a lot of time showing proper brushing and flossing techniques for our infant son so we would not run into the same problem again. I was very impressed with Weidman Dentistry and elected to go with them for their thoroughness and professionalism. Will NEVER go to Dr. Birch again.

went out of my way to find this doctor who is out of network from good review here, I was very disappointed with his staff who was very nervous cleaning my daughter's teeth. For a pediatric office, I expect them to be kids friendly, but this hygenist was clearly nervous working on my daughter's teeth. She said she couldn't apply fluoride on her teeth after cleaning, while this was not my daughter's first dentist visit. She was fine at our other dentist. Doctor was okay, not friendly for first impression. wouldn't recommend to others as we're not going back there again! I'm used to my ped dentist in another state who is very friendly and always gets the kids attention. They always have a way to get the kids to clean their teeth, it's their job for goodness sake.

My daughter has had many surgery's unrelated to her mouth, so going to the dentist was not in my proirties. She is deathly afraid of anyone who resembles a Dr or nurse. The anxiety was high our first visit, but going in the first thing I noticed was that Dr Birch does not wear "Dr clothes" he wears his street clothes so that was one plus! Next he never forced her to do anything she did'nt want to, and all he did was look in her mouth count her teeth and it was over. Now she looks forward to going because at the end of the visit she gets to find a treasure in the treasure box! LOVE him!!

Dr. Birch and his staff are amazing with my daughter. She has had some "mouth trauma" from falls and Dr. Birch has been calm, honest and reassuring to both my daughter and me. My daughter loves going to the dentist! I would highly recommend Dr. Birch to anyone looking for a great dentist for their child.

My 3 children LOVE Dr. Birch. I appreciate and respect the fact that he talks to them and includes them in the entire process. He is very patient. My boys actually LIKE to go to the dentist. They look forward to seeing Dr. Birch and his staff twice a year. There has never been any stress or anxiety associated with going to the dentist for my children. Dr. Birch's office has made my life a little easier! With the utmost confidence I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Birch.

Dr. Birch and his staff are wonderful at taking care of children! He calmed my 2 yr. old son by explaining the x-ray process, each step of checking his mouth and by really talking to him and not at him. He made what could have been a nightmare and possible "melt-down" situation into a pleasant one. Thank you Dr. Birch!
