We love working with children in a family-oriented approach, and helping them all have a fantastic dental experience.


Welcome to
Westerville Pediatric Dental

Welcome to Westerville Pediatric Dental, our team is dedicated to serving you and your child in a friendly, safe, and fun environment. You will realize you are someplace special from your first visit. The custom “treehouse themed” play house, video game area and iPad stations are just the beginning of a great experience.

Dr. Joel and his team are devoted to making each and every experience a positive one. Our fun experience doesn’t stop at the waiting room either. We continue to engage your child, and you, throughout the exam. Making a point to speak directly to the child, building trust and growing their confidence! All of this is backed up with the finest equipment, technology and highly trained and educated team. It is our goal that every child and family have an amazing experience, one they will want to share with family and friends.

FUN! Waiting Room

You will know you are somewhere special from the minute you walk in the door!

Your experience will begin with one of our fabulous team members.  Your child’s attention is sure to turn to our custom-designed tree house play area, that engages imaginations and encourages creative play! For our older patients, you will find video games and iPad stations!

When we say going to the dentist is fun here, we mean it!!! We haven’t forgotten the grown-ups, who will be oh so happy to sink into one of our comfy waiting room chairs and enjoy our WIFI and coffee station!

Fantastic Exam

We speak the language of children, and they are fluent in FUN!

We believe trust is the cornerstone of all relationships and earning our patients (and parents) trust is imperative to a successful appointment. Don’t be surprised if our conversation turns to superheroes, Star Wars, and fairy princesses.

We are also fluent in Pokemon and snapchat! Rest assured that in the midst of all the talk of superheroes we are completing a thorough examination.

We complete each exam by discussing our findings and recommendations with you and making sure you have the time you need to ask questions.

super Experience

While we all love to have fun, we also understand that your child’s health is serious business. It couldn’t be more serious to us.

We strive for excellence in everything from our education to our equipment to our continuing education and more to provide the best care possible for your child.

YOU and your CHILD, are our highest priority. From the first call for an appointment to our “goodbye, see you next time” we insist that your experience is fantastic! We know it will be for us! If it isn’t an amazing experience for your child, we want to hear about it and make it right!

We love working with children in a family oriented approach, and helping them all have a fantastic experience.


We care about the well-being of our patients
