What Sets Us Apart

At Growing Smiles, we love kids and treat each one in a unique and caring way! The goal is to have each young patient enjoy every visit to Growing Smiles and allow for a good first impression of dentistry.

By providing a safe, calm, and caring environment that is focused on the child's needs, we provide a lifetime of good oral health. Our team is committed to helping kids and parents learn how to care for their teeth properly and develop good brushing and flossing habits that can keep their smiles healthy for years to come.

In addition to helping keep patients happy inside the office, we’re also committed to ensuring the success of our community and are active in numerous local organizations and activities.

Growing Smiles is the official sponsor of the Junior Jayhawks, the official kids' club of University of Kansas Athletics. We also participate annually in Kansas Mission of Mercy, “KMom”, and Give Kids a Smile.

One of our biggest promotions is our school presentations for National Children's Dental Health Month each February. We donate staff and doctor time to local elementary and pre-schools to educate kids on the importance of good health every year. We’ve reached approximately 1,500 kids annually over the past five years.

Growing Smiles sponsors an annual candy buyback for Halloween, in which all the candy is donated to troops overseas. Most years we collect and donate more than 500 pounds of candy! We also throw a party for our patients every year called the Summer Bash and we host a free event before one home KU football game every year.
