A Pediatric Dentist Your Kids Will Love
Welcome to Olympia Pediatric Dentistry. We are a pediatric dental office for Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater, and the surrounding areas. We specialize in the treatment of infants, children and teenagers. Our commitment is to help your son or daughter keep an attractive, healthy smile for a lifetime. We pride ourselves on preventing dental problems, protecting your childrens overall health, and creating a relaxed and dental-friendly experience. Come on in and meet your kids dentist!
Olympia Pediatric Dentistry offers a wide range of standard services for the pediatric patient. For those patients who are unable to cooperate either from age or from extensive treatment needs, we offer in-house general anesthesia services with an MD anesthesiologist. Emergency services are available when necessary.
We care about children and their oral health. Our primary goal is a healthy child with good oral health who will enjoy his or her dental visits and have a positive experience that will last a life time.
Amazing dental office, and extremely nice and helpful staff! The receptionists, the hygienists, Dr. Van Cleeve, everyone there is so wonderful! They listen to my concerns and are so kind to my son and treat him like a person, not just a patient. Thank you to everyone that works there for making going to the dentist such a positive experience!
The service was highly professional, friendly and very courteous. CJ said, "it was AWESOME!" When asked why it was awesome, was it was because of all the pretty ladies, he looked at me with a matter of fact look and said, "no, it was because they did their jobs." Not sure what criteria he used to make that determination, but all of you made a good impression with him. He is looking forward to his next visit and that's what counts. Great job!
I really cannot express how awesome Gideon's experience was here. This was the first and because of the kindness and care for not just getting to the exam but in letting Gideon see, touch, and hear the tools so that he was comfortable. Both the Dr and the Hygienist talked to him about what they would do next so he felt in control. The experience has made him change how he feels about letting us (parents) brush and floss his teeth so now he asks at night to take care of his teeth. I could go on about the great office feel and how my son loved the helm. 🙂

Thank you for considering us as your child’s new dental provider. We recognize that every child is unique. Therefore, we can choose from a variety of approaches to make the first visit comfortable and fun for your son or daughter. At this visit the dentist will examine your child’s teeth. We will clean your child’s teeth and apply fluoride. X-rays will be taken if indicated. We will definitely give your child lots of praise to build a positive dental attitude. We encourage you to be a part of our dental health team, working with us to protect the health of your child. We will be counting on you to give your child encouragement in good dental care at home, as well as sharing with us your questions and concerns.
We need to inform you of our 10 minute late policy and 24 hour cancellations policy. We reserve a special time for your child’s appointment. If you are 10 minutes late for an appointment, we will need to reschedule for another day. We take pride in giving our patients quality care and need the entire appointment time to do so. We also request that you give us 24 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment. This gives us the opportunity to offer that opening to another patient. Thank you for your understanding on this matter.
All treatment fees are the responsibility of the parents. As a courtesy to you we will bill your insurance, however, any estimated amount not covered by insurance will be due on the day of treatment.
Our goal is to make your child’s dental care as easy, comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We look forward to meeting you and your children.
