Our boys really enjoy their eye exams with Dr. Sowards
Waiting doesn't take long it's clean and inviting, they schedule all of our 3 children in at the same time. The staff are always curious and professional, they take the children to get their teeth cleaned and take x-rays so Dr. Knott can spot and examine any problems if any arise. An appointment is scheduled if treatment is needed refers you to specialists and he is straight forward and explains intervention at a moderate time. I highly recommend Dr. Konnt he cares about my children's dental health. We really got motivated to brush and floss gently for a longer period of time our teeth after eating and we are know cutting down on sugar after a couple of cavities where found on 2 of our children. We want them to grow up happy and healthy. Thank you Childrens Dental!
