"I had an amazing experience with my 5 year old and 3 year old boys. The office was very clean and kid friendly with all the vibrant colors. Teresa and Laurie were friendly, and made my boys feel comfortable for their first dental cleaning appointment. Dr. Yvonne and Ajikwaga Felli were very professional and informative. Overall, everyone was welcoming!"
"Super clean environment, excellent for your kids. Staff very nice and professional. Dr Felli is just awesome. Glad my kids have the best dentists in the community."
"An amazing facility with a very hospitable and accommodating team. Dr Felli is very caring and thoughtful with kids. I’d highly recommend them to anyone looking for pediatric dentist."
"Dr. Felli and staff were so wonderful! It was my son's first dentist visit and they were all so accomodating and sweet! We absolutely loved our experience and will definitely be back!"
"Appointment took a little longer than expected, but it was worth. The kids are happy and I’m happy with the care provided by every single person at Cuddly Smiles. I have a problem with dentists taking X-rays every single time we go for cleaning. I asked doctor Felli to skip it if her assessment looked normal and she promptly accepted after looking at a previous X-ray. They are not pushy to have things done if the patient is not comfortable. She seems to be very honest with her patients and I really appreciate that. I finally found a dentist I can trust to care for my children."
