Dr. Blen and his entire staff are AMAZING! They are fast, extremely friendly, caring, and AWESOME!harperh
We have been going to Dr. B for almost 9 years now and the kids absolutely LOVE him! We started there when my daughter was 4 and my son was 22 months, they’ve never had any anxiety about going and we’ve referred several friends and family members who have all been satisfied. I couldn’t be more happy with the service we’ve received from Dr. B and his staff.brianj
Dr. B is a true miracle worker. My anxious 5 year old loves him, and had a great experience even getting a filling for a cavity yesterday. We are always in and out in a short amount of time, with smiles on our faces. I highly recommend him and his friendly staff!mollyp
Are you looking for a children’s dentist in Memphis, TN?
As parents, we take our children to pediatricians because they are children specialists. Their extra special training allows them to limit their practice to meet the very special needs of our children. A pediatric dentist is the equivalent to your pediatrician in dentistry. A pediatric dentist has years of extra training even after they have become a general dentist. Come see what a great experience children’s dentistry should be by scheduling your child’s first dental appointment with Dr. B!

First Visit Forms
“We are going to see Dr. B today!” childrens dentist Memphis Tn
The first visit to the dentist can be the most important in your child’s life. Say something like, “Dr. B will show you lots of new and fun things to make your teeth sparkle and help you have a pretty smile.” If your children ask searching questions, explain that Dr. B and his staff will tell them what he’s going to do,show them how he’ll do it, and then will actually do it. Be sure to tell them if they have any questions to ask Dr. B and staff. The earlier the dental visit, the better the chance of preventing dental disease.
The team at the office exceeds my expectations. They are so good with explaining things to my child in a way that she feels comfortable, is excited about it, and understands what is going on. The feedback presented to me as a parent is done so that I fully understand what is going on with my child. I recommend this practice often and will continue to do so. This is a much better experience than what I had as a child I we feel fortunate to have found such a great practice.smithj
Dr. B and his kind, friendly staff put my kids right at ease. The office is clean and cheerful and the very short waits have been pleasant at both our visits! My five year old daughter has been pestering me for weeks to set up her appointment, and she has can’t wait for her next checkup. My two year old had his first cleaning today and I was amazed how relaxed he was. His enthusiastic take away was “The doctor…my teeth! I didn’t bite him mama!” High praise indeed. Thank you team for giving my children such positive first dental experiences!ezraa

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a child’s first dental visit by 12 months of age.
Dr. B suggests that parents bring their children to the dentist regularly, beginning with an infant oral health exam. Dr. B can recommend a specific program of brushing, flossing, and other treatments. These home treatments, when added to regular dental visits and a balanced diet, will help give your child a lifetime of healthy habits.
What really goes on in the operatory
Once in the operatory, Dr. B will review your child’s medical and dental history. The health history includes an assessment of your child’s diet and nutrition, fluoride adequacy, oral habits, past injuries or trauma, oral development and oral hygiene. Dr. B will gently examine your child’s teeth, oral tissues, and jaws. He will provide preventive information or recommendations to you regarding your child’s diet, nutrition, fluoride and oral habits. If your child has a sufficient number of teeth erupted, Dr. B will recommend a subsequent appointment for a cleaning and topical fluoride treatment.
