Pediatric Dentistry

Children learn from their parents. If there is any habit worth passing down, it’s the habit of regular dental care.

Making Visits “Happy!”

Dr. Vandewater’s office encourages patients to bring their young children with them so they can see what it’s like to have a dental check-up.

When your child turns 3 and you feel that he or she is ready for a visit of their own, schedule an appointment for a Happy Visit. Your child will have their first pediatric dental exam with you right by their side.

Family schedules are busy enough. Make your life easier by scheduling all your dental appointments at one place.

We wouldn’t think of going anywhere else.

I never thought I would find myself actually looking forward to a dental visit, but I can honestly say I do when it means I will get to visit with the awesome team at Dr Vandewater's office!!! Everyone is not only extremely knowledgeable and friendly, but they are really good at what they do!!!! I began visiting Dr Vandewater's office for all my dental hygiene appointments approximately 4 years ago and have since brought both my children and my husband to the practice as well. Wouldn't think of going anywhere else for our check ups and any dental work we need done!

My kids cannot wait to get their teeth cleaned.

I have been to several dentists. No one beats Jay Vandewater and his remarkable staff! He is the best dentist in West County. My kids cannot wait to get their teeth cleaned at his office. I always leave there feeling taking care of, all of my questions answered and happy that he provides such a professional and caring approach to dentistry. His staff has been the same in his office for years (some 20+). They know how to run a dentist office with professionalism, high integrity and perfectionism and all with some fun and amazing smiles! I adore this office. If you are in need of a dentist, make Dr. Jay Vandewater, DDS your next phone call.

The staff was great with my 6 year old.

My 6 year old needed some preventive work for decay. The staff was great with him and he had a positive experience! They have been helping our family for over twenty years.

Dr. Jay and his staff are so amazing my 11 year old son looks forward to his appointment!

He acknowledged that I was a very busy full-time working mom.

Not many people I know say they enjoy going to the dentist, and I absolutely do! Dr. James VandeWater and his incredible staff always have their patients best interest and treat them with the utmost respect while doing quality work. I have been going to his practice for 13 years and I will never go to anybody else. Even when his practice went out of my insurance's network, I continued to go to Dr. Jay and it is because I always leave 100% satisfied and glad that I was able to see these amazing people. On a recent occasion, I went in for my routine cleaning and Dr. VandeWater noticed a small cavity. He acknowledged that I was a very busy full-time working mom and asked if I would be able to complete my filling that day instead of asking me to schedule another appointment. This is just one of the many examples that I have experienced with his outstanding customer satisfaction and patient first philosophy. I can't wait until my son is old enough to go and see Dr. Jay. They truly are like family!
