My 9-year-old son had 4 teeth pulled, and she did an amazing job of keeping him calm by carefully explaining everything she was doing and letting him know he could tell her if he had any pain. He was very comfortable and everything went very smoothly.

Dr. Oppenheim is an awesome pediatric dentist. We started working with her when my daughter needed extensive dental work, and we've been with her now for several years. She is kind, gentle, and has been able to persuade my daughter to take much better care of her teeth. No cavities today!
