Locally Grown: Children’s Dentistry Group, LLC {Lake Zurich}

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month!  Which means now is the perfect time to introduce you to Children’s Dentistry Group, LLC in Lake Zurich.

Children’s Dentistry Group, LLC is a pediatric dental group, located at 195 South Rand Road in Lake Zurich.  Earlier this month you met Dr. Paul Herer, whose 40+ years of caring for children’s teeth have made him a beloved Lake County legend.

But Dr. Herer is just one member of the team at Children’s Dentistry Group.  He is joined by Dr. Melissa Patenio, Dr. Sarah Mahmoud, and Dr. Anu Krishnamurthy.

If you have a toddler or young child who hasn’t visited the dentist yet, now is the perfect time to schedule his or her first visit.  Dr. Herer advises you should bring your child after the eruption of their first tooth and at least by age one.

Personally, I feel there’s no better place for a child’s first dental visit than Children’s Dentistry Group, LLC in Lake Zurich.  My children have been patients there since a traumatic visit to our family dentist when my son was two years old.  We’ve never looked back!

Most everyone has run into a situation where you love the doctor, but the support staff rubs you the wrong way, or vice versa.  Not so at Children’s Dentistry Group.  I’ve always found the Clinical Assistants and Administrative Staff to be polite, patient and exceedingly friendly and helpful.   When you deal with children all day, you can’t have anything less!  My children have always been treated with the most gentle care, and they always succeed at taking the anxiety out of dental visits.  They all have that magic touch that can literally put a smile on the face of a frightened child.

I’ve had a lot to say about Children’s Dentistry Group in the past (read my past review,) so I thought I’d share a few unsolicited remarks from our readers:

We drive almost an hour to see him and it is well worth it! All the staff are compassionate and always take time to make our children feel comfortable. I always recommend them when people are looking for a dentist for their children! ~ Jessica

My little girl got a tooth at just four days old (!!!) Dr. Herer and his staff were able to see her right away and be sure it wasn’t causing any immediate problems. He set my mind at ease. Now she and her sister are both patients. ~ Samantha

Love this practice!!!! The whole staff is AWESOME and so timely! ~ Jeanine

Took my kids to see Dr. Herer when he had his office in Lake Villa, then Gurnee years ago, now the grandchildren are his patients. ~ Rose

It’s one thing when Little Lake County tells you a place is special, but when our readers echo the sentiment in droves, you know that Children’s Dentistry Group has got to be an office where people care.

February ~ National Children’s Dental Health Month

In recognition of February as National Children’s Dental Health Month, Children’s Dentistry Group travels to local schools and programs to educate children on proper oral hygiene and good dietary habits.  They offer free presentations that are fun and interesting for kids, including an exciting experiment.  They also donate goody bags that include toothbrushes and activity books to get the kids started on their oral hygiene journey.
