SECOND OPINIONS FOR HAPPY SMILES
Kids naturally get nervous about going to the dentist — but it doesn’t have to be that way. Dr. Roya Pilcher developed her S.A.F.E. method for exactly this reason: to help children feel safe, comfortable and informed about their dental care, both at the dentist and at home.
After all, we believe that kids really can have fun at the dentist, but only if they have a pediatric dentist who truly cares about and understands kids’ unique needs. Our S.A.F.E method is structured as a game (complete with prizes!) to help reduce patient anxiety and teach kids about what’s happening throughout their appointment.
So if you’ve already met with a dentist (or a few) and haven’t found the right fit, that’s totally normal. At Smile Valley, we encourage all parents to get a second opinion before moving forward with pediatric dental treatment. Ready to get a second opinion for your child? Contact us today.

I have been coming to Dr. Pilcher for 4 years, with my now 8-year-old and my 4 yr old sees her as well. Dr. Pilcher is a truly gifted health care provider. She is so sensitive, calm, kind, SMART, and efficient. Her office is clean and cheerful and the staff are great as well. I would recommend Dr. Pilcher to anyone and everyone - I wish she did adults!!Anna J
