Our Mission.
Your Child’s Health.

Welcome to Destination Smiles, conveniently located near Naglee Ave & N Bascom Ave. Here, our professionals know that dental
health is not just about white smiles: it’s about building habits that support a lifetime of strong teeth and healthy gums. Our
doctors and staff are passionate about providing our little patients with painless, compassionate, and friendly dental care.

Kid Friendly Approach to Dental Care

A child’s first visit to the dentist should be not only enjoyable but a time to learn healthy habits. Destination Smiles’ goal is to create a safe, comfortable, and fun experience for your child. Our gentle doctors and friendly staff are mindful that your child may be anxious when visiting the dentist. That’s why we take the time to explain everything that’s going on in a way your little one can understand.
