  • Dr. Rick has commitment to providing the most outstanding care, in a warm environment that welcomes every child. Our son being on the autism spectrum has a few fears. Smile Station works hard to make him as comfortable as possible. This is achieved not only their extraordinary care, but by supporting parents with the tools they need to ensure their children are confident and prepared for visiting the dentist. Our son loves Dr. Rick so much he calls him, Dr. Mickey.

  • Soooo I’m a stay at home momma who thought it was a good idea to take a 3.5 and 5 year old boys to the dentist at the same time. First visit ever! The staff was hands down amazing. I didn’t know what to expect. I always feel like I’m running a circus and the visit went smoothly as can be. One child had no cavities and did awesome. He was the one I was worried about. Hahaha. My oldest had 4 cavities and in need of one pulled as it had went to the root and a spacer put in. Dr. Bryce knelt next to me and explained perfectly what was going on with both children and what the plan of action should be for the oldest. Everything was in terms that I understood and felt comfortable with. Thanks for making the dentist fun and not at all scary.

  • Smile station is the best!!! We have had a great experience so far. We have also been to both locations and they are both great. Everyone is so positive and kid friendly! ...Dr Bryce as well as the rest of the stuff know exactly what they’re doing in all aspects and have sent us a piece of mail for each time we’ve been with either a picture, stickers or a little note! Love it.

  • Highly recommend! Everyone who has worked with my kids have been amazing. They really know how to interact with them to help them feel calmer and safe during any procedures. It made a difference in my daughter who used to get very anxious during dental appointments. My kids see Dr. Carstens, he is great at explaining things, making sure we understand exactly why and what is needed. I find him to be very professional and humble. He explains all options available, taking into account the parents concerns without being left feeling awkward for saying or questioning something. I have always felt confident with any decisions and dental work my kids have received.
