Testimonials


My wife and I had an excellent experience when we brought in our twins. We were worried with the procedure that she had to have done, but they made us and our children feel comfortable, and reassured us that everything is going to be okay. My experience could not have gone better. Thank you Dr. Teglia, and the reception staff as well, for creating a pleasurable experience.

An amazing practice!! The office and waiting room were very clean. I had gone in Friday to make an appointment and was able to get my daughter in on Monday. There wasn't much of a wait and plenty for her to do with 3 tabs being available for kids to play with as well as a movie playing on the TV. The young lady who checked and cleaned our daughter's teeth was amazing as was Dr. Wilde. Both made us feel welcome and were willing to answer any questions we had. Thank you!!

Our first visit was in Oct 2014 and it was a great visit. The girls at the desk are super friendly and make you feel comfortable. They have a big screen tv with kids movies playing and a couple of kids computer areas with games. On our first visit they had me come back and the first thing they did was had the kids brush in a sink to help with brushing skills. The hygienist asked me questions about their dental health and cleaned their teeth. Dr. Wilde is our dentist and he is wonderful. Very good with the kids, he seems to genuinely enjoy working with kids. At one point he recommend something I had questions about and when I brought up concerns due to my own research he very patiently acknowledged them and without making me feel bad, explained with his knowledge what he knew about the topic and why he thought my concerns were unwarranted and I felt totally at ease taking his advice and trusting him.

Dr. Gookin and his staff are amazing! They keep my kids comfortable and relaxed during every procedure. They communicate everything that is being done, give options so the parents have some say in what will be done, clearly explain the post procedure care so you don't go home unsure of what to do. Dr. Gookin makes follow up calls in the evenings to make sure his patients are doing ok. Dr. Gookin will definitely be my kids dentist for the rest of their childhood.

The staff here provides excellent customer service and everyone works to provide the highest quality of care. They are very considerate of the needs of young people and very helpful to parents. All three of our kids have been patients here and all have been treated very well.

I can't thank Dr.Gookin and his staff enough for the amazing care my daughter's received at their recent dental appointments! You can tell everyone there, especially Dr.Gookin is made to work with kids because they were so good at making the appointment comfortable and fun for them. The office itself is so colorful and filled with Hollywood/Disney decor & my girls kept telling me how cool it was there. Dr.Gookin even sang Frozen songs to them, and when we left they both let me know he's the best doctor ever! They're already looking forward to their next checkup, I mean what more could a mom ask for?!

Dr Gookin is such an amazing dentist. My 4 year old daughter gets so excited when I tell her we're going to the dentist. Dr Gookin and his team at the south Reno office are truly awesome, my four kids and I absolutely love them all! If you're looking to have a happy kid and a wonderful experience when going to the dentist make sure you go to My Kids Smile in South Reno.

I can not say it enough but this place is ahhhhhmazing! Dr. Gookin and his staff are always kind and courteous. Dr. Gookin does not offer unneeded treatment and explains all options possible to allow the parents to make the right decision for their child. This is not one of those "absolute dental" type chains that only cares about numbers. My kids smile cares about the kids. They try to make the experience as enjoyable as possible considering this is a dentist office. I have two children and I wouldn't imagine having any other dentist work with them. Luckily Dr. Gookin is young so I foresee him working on my kids for a very long time!

I usually don't write reviews unless I'm really happy. As a mother you always want what is best for your child. To me that was Dr. Gookin he attempts to make your child comfortable and helps you understand what he recommends. He doesn't push you into making a decision and is willing to try to accommodate you if he feels like it will benefit your child. Dr. Gookin is friendly and takes the time to make sure all your answers are answered. I will continue to refer my friends and family over to Dr. Gookin.

What a great practice! Being a mom of twin girls, taking them to any doctor isn't the easiest task. Luckily from the moment I walked in the door I was able to breath a sigh of relief. The waiting room had a big TV that was playing a movie and there were three iPads for the kids to play with; my girls were instantly entertained. The office was clean and had a fun sports theme. Staff was friendly and Dr.Wilde seemed excited to see us and made us feel welcomed. We did not feel rushed, especially from having two appointments, and they made sure all my questions were answered before leaving. I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone looking for a pediatric dentist in the area.

This is a great dental practice!! We were referred to My Kid's Smile by a friend after moving here from Las Vegas. Dr. Blake Wilde and his staff took great care of both of my girls and I am so grateful! My girls were comfortable and happy during their procedures and I am so glad they aren't timid about dental work due to good experiences like this one! The waiting room is clean and nice with iPads for kid's entertainment. We didn't have to wait long for our turn either. The front desk staff was wonderful and I appreciated the text reminders!
