What Our Patients
Are Saying

S Martinez

Dr. Tasker and his staff are the best. They did an excellent job keeping my "little" calm while he was having his first extractions done. It was a pleasant experience all the way around and he was not traumatized whatsoever. Thank you!

Briana Blocker

This was my child’s first dentist appointment and it went awesome. The office is well decorated for kids and the front desk staff was helpful. We loved all the people we came in contact with, and Dr. Peck was easy to talk to and good with our son. Definitely staying with this dentist office!

Laura M.

We came here for the first time with my 6 year old son to receive a treatment plan for his teeth. Dr. Peck and his dental assistant, Breanna were amazing! Then explained everything to him and made sure he was comfortable. I would definitely recommend this Pediatric dental office to everyone!

Elisha

I love this office! All the hygienists we have had have been amazing, even when my kiddos were struggling to make it through a tough moment. Dr. Tasker is really thorough and I have always left the office with all the information I needed for my kids' dental health.
