Dental Anesthesia concerns? ((Please READ )) I thought that it was very important to leave this review because I could not find any reviews on dental anesthesia from dr. Petruzzi’s office. I have the absolute WORST anxiety as Show morea mom I mean terrible and while I knew my little one needed dental surgery I almost canceled and I am SO happy that I didn’t. My daughter has always had the most amazing experience with desert kids. She loves going to the dentist. Everyone handle me with so much care when I expressed how scared I was. I called Rachel balling she listened to me. She had the Anesthesiologist call me and explain everything to me. During the process the nurse continued to give me several updates. I could tell that they did everything to keep me calm. My toddler is back to normal after her procedure today and I am chasing her trying to keep her from flipping and running ha! I didn’t have the best dental care growing up I truly feel like family when I walk into this place brings tears to my eyes. We are so grateful to have come across such a caring dental office. If you are reading this and you are scared because your little has to have GA you are in good hands. Thank you to the desert kids dentistry team we appreciate you all.
Very great experience all around. They called me about an appointment I made online and they offered me something sooner, at first I said no but a couple hours later I called and asked if they could take two of my kids who were neShow morew to them last minute and they did squeeze me in. Everyone was very nice, clinic was nice and clean. Heather was our dental assistant (?) and she was the absolute best with my kids, she definitely knows how to talk and make kids laugh. My youngest is super anxiety ridden and Heather handled it like a pro and was able to get her through everything with a smile on her face. She never once seemed annoyed or frustrated with my girls and she just was super kind and playful with them and talked to them like a human being. I appreciated her so much and because of her my kids had a great experience. Dr Petruzzi was really awesome too. The whole experience was great and I will be bringing my kids back. Thank you!

My boys are super comfortable with Dr. Petruzzi & the staff at Desert Kids Dentistry. Communication & customer service is outstanding. We always feel well cared for.
My daughter had a pressing dental issue and they were able to see her that same day and do the procedure needed that same day as well. The dentist was very kind and talked with my daughter to make her feel comfortable.
Dr. Petruzzi is the best, both of my grandkids see him. They absolutely adore him!!!!! They feel safe and secure with him and his staff
My son had an appointment on Halloween. They had a skeleton staff with just a hygienist (I wish I remembered her name) and Dr. Petruzzi. They did so to give the other staff the opportunity to spend time with their little ones on Halloween… thoughtful. She was dressed as Luigi and he was dressed as Bowser from the Nintendo game. My son was 1 of like 4 appointments that day. They’re effort for just 4 appointments I thought was endearing. When my son and I left he said, “That was the best dentist visit I’ve ever had.” Effort is rare these days.
My son seems to do well there.
We had a great visit! The staff is friendly and patient!
Dr. Petruzzi is the best!
I highly recommend Dr. Petruzzi!! The staff was very friendly and flexible with scheduling around kids school/activities. My son had two cavities filled without a single tear! He was happy coming in, and leaving. I would highly recommend this office!
Friendly staff, Dr made procedure easy as 1,2,3
Super friendly. Love going here.
Have been going to Dr. Petruzzi for over 10 years and now our second child is coming up and we’re still treated as good as day one. Wonderful doctor, wonderful staff. Always treated with respect and children’s teeth taken very well care of.
Great attention. I appreciate the time taken to answer and address not only mine, but my son’s questions about his teeth. (Current and future) A great staff of caring people.

Great dentist clinic and friendly staff
Dr. Petruzzi is always so comforting and good with our daughter. When we had an emergency the day before Christmas, he got her in right away whereas her regular dentist didn't. We are forever grateful, and our daughter trusts him.
Dr. Petruzzi and his staff are kind and friendly. I have really appreciated the care they have given my 2 scared 4-year-olds. And no shaming when my daughter has cavities beginning on some molars.
Dr. Petruzzi and the staff are really amazing. I want to recommend this office to everyone,
All staff are great and so far dental work is too!
Outstanding service from scheduling, until cavities filled !! Everyone loves kids! Kind, professional. Both my 9y and 7y old had a total change of heart about teeth brushing! Both keep asking me for floss, and actually STARTED brushing them sometimes without being asked. Staff and Dr made the kids feel empowered to learn why good teeth health is so important! Put the responsibility on the kids in such a loving way! I am grateful for not having to WW3 every time it’s brushing time. Thank you DESERT KIDS DENTISTRY for the 5 star experience ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
