Dr. Goins and his staff have been amazing! My 3 kids absolutely LOVE going to his office. They are great at making your child feel comfortable and putting them at ease! My kids favorite part is getting a treat at the end to make them feel special. Also, they have gone over and beyond in helping us in different ways to accommodate our youngest who is 6, who has Leukemia. It has not been an easy rode. Dr. Goins has been a great support to our child and family. It's a blessing to have their help!

My toddler had a cavity!!! I was embarrassed and felt like a very bad mommy. Dr. Goins put my mind at ease. Made me feel better about the situation. I took my son in for his procedure. They took very good care of him. He can't wait to go back!!!
My Chikdren love Dr. Clay!! The staff is very helpful and super friendly. Any dental emergency we have ever had Dr. Clay has gone out of his way to make sure my children are taken care of. He even met us after hours because my son was in pain instead making us wait the next day after a procedure. I can't say enough about how amazing this Dental office is to our children! I highly recommend Dr. Clay and staff!!

I've been taking my children to Dr. Goins for years. The staff has always been wonderful. Dr. Goins is such a kind man, and the kids love him. The office is decorated in such a whimsical way for the kids, even though mine are now teens, all of the kids enjoy playing while they wait. I couldn't imagine taking them anywhere else... Unfortunately, I know that day is coming. I would recommend that anyone take their children to Dr. Goins...he's simply a wonderful dentist.
Wonderful experience!!
