Dr. Oppenheim is extraordinary! She is everything you want in a pediatric dentist. She is extremely kind and caring, detail oriented and always wants the best for you.

Dr. Oppenheim is a fabulous dentist for children. She is a wonderful person who really cares about their well being and makes them comfortable. My two year old fell and chipped his tooth and she took good care of repairing it and calling for follow up. The office is equipped with fish and other distractions to keep them entertained!

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!
