As usual, a wonderful experience at Wayne Pediatric Dental. My daughter chipped a filling while we were on vacation. Of course I forgot all week to call to try and schedule something on Saturday. We called at 10 am Saturday morning and they said they could fit us in at 11:30. We walked in, they took my daughter right away and 20 minutes later we were walking out the door and my daughter had a new filling. I absolutely love this practice, they are truly the best!!!!

We have been using Dr Johnson for years and have never been disappointed. Isabella was petrified to have her teeth worked on. After going to Wayne Pediatrics her fears are now a thing of the past. She loved the office and the gentleness of the staff.
