These are the Pediatric Dentists Kidding Around Readers Trust

Posted on | 3 Comments

Searching for a great dentist for your child? This list includes the pediatric dentists our readers recommend. No matter what part of the Upstate you live in, you’re sure to find the perfect dentist for your child!

Finding good dentists for their children is often at the top of any parent’s mind but the choices can be overwhelming and oftentimes online reviews can be hard to find. One of the best ways to find a good dentist is to ask friends and family for their recommendations. But even then, parents may only have one or two answers without much background.

Kidding Around Greenville gets questions all the time about pediatric dentists in Greenville – so who do we go to in order to find the best answers? Our own readers. And boy, have you all delivered.

Please note that this content is provided for informational purposes only and does not constitute medical advice. Users are advised to check the certification of any care providers listed below and consult their own medical doctors before proceeding with a care plan.

best pediatric dentist in Greenville

Pediatric dentists treat children from infancy through adolescence and address everything from thumb-sucking and pacifier issues to preventative dental care, addressing cavities and repairing knocked out teeth from sports to face-plants on the playground. Hopefully the dentist will educate parents and kids on good dental hygiene and how certain foods and drink affect teeth. It’s certainly important to choose a good pediatric dentist to keep those pearly whites nice and healthy.

Note: Greenville Speaks selections are based on both the number and types of comments made by our readers on social media. Each of these pediatric dentists received multiple recommendations from our readers.

Greer Pediatric Dental Care

Dr. Mary Okuley
3115 Brushy Creek Road, Greer

Reader Kerry says, “Mary Okuley. We now live 40 minutes away from her practice in Greer and I still won’t leave. My daughter had to have four baby teeth pulled and Dr. Mary was able to do that quickly and painlessly. She sings songs from Frozen and talks about fairy dust and freezing magic to the kids while she’s working. My daughter seriously thinks she’s the tooth fairy.”

Reader Staci says, ”Greer Pediatric Dentistry – Mary Okuley is wonderful. So patient with my children and thoroughly professional!”

Reader Morgan says, “MD Mary at Greer Pediatric Dental Care. She is a mother and understands what children need and how to make it fun. She sings to the kids when she counts their teeth and she always gives them sugar free suckers. AND you will NEVER wait in their waiting rm. We check in and always go back immediately. They are very quick. I drive from Spartanburg to go to her practice because we love them so much.”

Reader Zemfira says, “Dr. Mary Okuley Greer Pediatric Dental Care. We LoVe Dr.Mary she is amazing and all her team so caring 😍 I drive from Five Forks 🤗”

Upstate Pediatric Dentistry

Dr. Brian Jones DMD
545 Verdae Boulevard, Suite A, Greenville

Reader Stephanie says, “Upstate Pediatric Dentistry I have 5 sons and they always get them in together and effortlessly. I usually have to take them by myself. The staff there is so patient, efficient, and sweet. My boys LOVE going to the dentist even the 4 year old. We have used them for 4 years now.”

Reader Kassidee says, “Dr Brian Jones! He has his cell phone on the voicemail and called me back late on a Friday night about my son’s semi-emergency. That won me over right then.
And he’s also super gentle and great with kiddos. But I couldn’t find anyone else who’d take a call at that time. That’s Upstate Pediatric Dentistry, btw.”

Greenville Pediatric Dentistry

1376 Cleveland St., Greenville

Reader Jannah says, “We see dr. Robin at Greenville pediatric dentistry since my oldest was 2.5. My now 4 and 2 year old get sooo excited every time we go! It is nice knowing they love going, vs dreading the dentist! Staff and atmosphere is great too! :)”

Dr. Ann Bynum

1673 East Main Street, Easley

Reader Morgan says, ” Dr. Ann is amazing. Her & her whole team at Holly Tree are! We have 2 autistic boys & ever since we’ve gone there they have gotten us in at the same time every time with the same assistant & the routine takes the same amount of time so our boys know what to expect. They also allow the boys to help do certain things in their appointment that makes them feel more comfortable. Overall, the whole team is just friendly & understanding.”

Appleseeds Pediatric Dentistry

Taylors Location: 1405 Brushy Creek Road, Taylors
Simpsonville Location: 216 Scuffletown Road, Suite D, Simpsonville

My 5 yo has autism and she makes sure he is scheduled at the same time every time (routine is key for him) and he loves her!”

Reader Adrienne says, “Dr. Cherry at Apple Seeds Pediatric Dentistry is wonderful!! The staff explains everything to help my children feel comfortable, they are quick and friendly. We have been with them since our first dentist appointments 6 years ago and last time I went I had three of my kids all in seats at the same time getting their appointments done!”

Reader Sarah says, ” Apple seeds pediatric dentistry in Taylors. My 4 year old is terrified of the dentist, they were so patient and caring with him. My daughter loves Dr Cherry! Best dentist we have ever been to.”
