The best dentist in the area, great staff very organized and clean thankyou
My son has autism so it was very hard to find a dentist to properly accommodate my sons needs until I came across La Petite kids dental. Doctor makes my son and myself feel very comfortable during treatment. I definitely recommend her!
What can I say about this office that has not been said before?! First the office is in a great location and provides validated parking. The office is always clean and you feel welcomed as soon as you walk in the door. The office is stocked with self serve coffee and water. Now to the most important thing the staff ! Everyone is amazing, friendly and knowledgeable.Dr. Sonia Lim always has a warm and kind smile that makes you feel comfortable and you know your child is in great hands. She can answer any questions that you have and works to make sure your child leaves with out being scared to come back. Any chance I get I make sure to recommend this office to family, friends and coworkers. Recently I learned my coworker started to bring her children here Based on my recommendation. Prices are also very reasonable and will work with you to find the best payment plan. Daughter- I like going to La Petite Dentist because they are very kind to me and because they always have a smile on their face.I will highly recommend everyone to bring their children here.
Very nice staff, doctor, and nice location.
I have been coming to la petite since my daughter has been 2. They are always so friendly and make my daughters experience so pleasant. My daughter actually looks forward to the dentist because she feels comfortable. They also have movies for them to watch while getting serviced which is the cherry on top for her.
Dr. Sonia Lim and the staff are excellent, my granddaughter been going there on two years now very very gentle, patience highly recommended.
I am very happy to have found La Petite Dentist. Dr. Lim is excellent. Her staff is knowledgable and patient. I love that my questions are answered with respect. My son loves the distraction that is offered by the latest kid shows during his cleanings and exams. A positive childhood experience with dentistry is a big key in adult dental health. I am so glad to be giving that gift to my child.
We love La Petite Kids Dentist, Dr. Lim and all her staff are so wonderful. My son looks forward to his dentist visit twice a year, which is remarkable!! Recommend La Petite to all my family and friends!!
I have been taking my daughter to La Petite Dentist for some time now, and I absolutely love it! We tried a few different dentists before finding this gem. This staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. All procedures and long term care plans have been well explained to me, while making sure I was aware of all my options. They make sure my daughter is comfortable and happy throughout our visit, which is very important for kids who are uneasy about going to the dentist. Highly recommend!
Highly recommend this practice! They helped my very nervous and scared daughter feel at ease! They facility is clean and inviting and the staff was kind and patient. Thank you!
Great place for first timers and for all kids.
Our experiences with Dr. Lim and her staff have been nothing less than exceptional. They are professional, caring, and gentle in every way. I was so anxious about dental care for my daughter, but now having worked with Dr. Lim I have no worries. It’s so relieving to know that my daughter is in the best hands. Thank you for your excellent care!
Amazing!! I am all about posting reviews from this day on. I actually chose la petite kids dental after reading ALL the 5 star reviews :) my daughter had the worst toothache so we were in immediate need for a dentist. Spent all night searching for a dentist on Google and La Petite kids dentist stood out with amazing stellar reviews. I am walking out with the happiest child as I'm writing this~~ she was so scared and full of anxiety walking in but Dr. Lim quickly took it all away with her calm and loving Dr bedside manner :) she didn't feel a thing!!! I Sat with her through the whole extraction process and even I was so surprised when Dr. Lim said "all done" - really??? I'm writing this review for all the other parents out there who rely and trust reviews like myself. Thank you so much Dr. Lim! We'll be seeing you every 6 months from now on~~~
We were looking for a pedia dentist for my son and found good reviews for this place and Dr. Lim so we decided to try it out. Great thing that we did as everything worked out well for us. My son had cavities on all his teeth and needed treatment under sedation. We got worried about the sedation part and even sought for a 2nd opinion in which we were also advised the same thing. We had the treatment done with Dr. Lim and Dr Bankie. Everything turned out pretty well and they took great care of our son. The clinic is also spotless which to me also reflects how they take pride in taking care of things and how they work. I highly recommend Dr. Lim and this clinic if you are in search for one. P.S. They also have screens for the kids to watch on while they do their cleaning and checkup which also helps to keep them distracted. It was a plus for me since we didn't know how my son would like going to the dentist and this was one of his favorite part of the visit to the dentist.
Great pediatric dentist! My boys have been with Dr. Lim for 2 years now.. she is very great with children, even when my boys have fears, she helps them overcome them quickly. The TV above the dentist chair helps! 😉
I am so happy with Dr. Lim and her staff. My son 4 year old had multiple cavities and Dr. Lim was amazing. She is incredibly talented, knowledgable, patient, warm and she made the experience comfortable for my son (and me too!) I am so happy I found her!
This is a very clean and well kept office. My son has been coming here for over 3 years now and the staff is always very friendly and helpful.
My 3 kids have been coming to Dr. Lim since they were babies and their first teeth started coming in. I’m so glad we found her. I love her office. It’s always so clean. Her staff is super helpful and always ready to answer any questions I may have. Dr. Lim is always so patient with the kids. She always explains to the kids what she’s doing as she does it. I would definitely recommend her!
I love this place because it always is fun . They put on a movie for you. Its always exciting
Dr. Lim is a fantastic dentist! Both my kids have been coming here for 3 years and are always happy to go. They love that they get to pick out their movie and leave with a new toothbrush! My daughter had several cavities and Dr. Lim suggested “the wand” and it really was a painless and fear free process for my 5 year old. They are gentle with the xrays and very patient with my son who can be squirmy in the chair. Highly recommend!
My son has been going to Dr. Lim for all of his pediatric dental care and he absolutely loves going to the dentist! La Petite is a fabulous office for children, putting them at ease for every visit. Children watch movies during their exams and Dr. Lim and the entire staff are simply the best!
Dr. Lim and her staff have been wonderful to our children! One of our kids has needed a bit of work and Dr. Lim was very thorough explaining the problems and the solution to each issue. We felt very comfortable with the plan of care. The best part was that Dr. Lim personally called us in the evening to follow up after each major treatment to check to see if our daughter was doing ok and feeling alright. We were extremely impressed by this level of patient care. It made us feel that she really cares about her patients. The office staff are welcoming and friendly. The extra touches like coffee and water in the waiting room as well as office decor adds to an overall great experience to the dentist!
Dr. Sonia Lim is truly amazing. Both my boys have been seeing her for almost 2 years. They love to come in and grab a movie and are actually excited to be there. Dr. Lim is gentle and explains everything to the kids in her soothing voice. She came highly recommended from our orthodontist friend. The office is clean and modern. Most importantly she is thorough without pushing anything unnecessary. She wants what’s best for the kids and really cares. We are very happy with the office and Dr. Sonia.
Doctor Sonia is the best. She is very kind and her caring level is beyond just a dentist. She is a very knowledgeable and give us a clear answer of all questions.She helped our son through a tough time and there are no words that enough to describe how appreciated we are. We are so happy that we have her as our son's dentist.Her clinic is very clean and cute decorating. Staff are friendly and welcoming and very easy to park. Highly recommended!!
This place is by far the best kids dentist in town! My son has been coming here for the past 3 years and he actually gets excited when it's time for a cleaning or regular checkup. Doctor Sonia Lim is very personal and super friendly. Her experience working with children is at the highest level. She explains thoroughly what my son needs and what is best for his pearly little whites.The office staff is always very welcoming and professional. They even offer complimentary coffee and bottled water. The experience makes it easy on the parents as well as my child. He even gets to pick out a toy after the doctor sees him.There is also free parking with doctors validation too!To all those parents looking for a child dentist, look no further. Doctor Sonia Lim is the best in town!
Loved this place! The whole staff was really nice. Especially Dr. Lim! My 3 year old had a melt down but X-ray Tech was very patient. No xrays were taken becuase he has just moving too much, but she was great through the ordeal. Dr. Lim did the exam after and she got him to sit, open his mouth, and she was able to do the exam and the cleaning. She talked him through it and he did awesome! It's a drive for me but will be back just so my boys can have a pleasant dental experience. Thank you La Petite Dentistry!
Dr. Lim is always very professional, gentle, caring with our young energetic boys. Very nice and kind staffs, too. Not only the people, but even Dr. Lim's office environment is very welcoming for kids as well as for parents. It is always super clean and kids can choose what to watch on screen placed directly in front of them, so it helps them to feel comfortable during kids' cleaning and treatment. Every little things like small paintings, mobiles and in the office helps kids to feel ease during the whole process.If your kids have dental insurance, the price is very reasonable and Dr. Lim never over do things, and her gentle and detailed treatment always make my kids keep wanting to come back for the next cleaning appointment. She is such a great dentist. Our whole family swears by her. I always recommend La petite kids dentist to my friends who have kids who live around Pasadena and even whole LA area. It would def be worth the drive!
It's almost 2 years that we are visiting this office and I told all my friends about it. It's difficult to find a place and a doctor you trust and I usually don't give advice unless I have a very great experience. In this office I always feel welcome, all the people are very nice, they explain in details everything they plan to do, the doctor is really sweet and good with kids. Go with confidence, you will be happy you choose them
We have been coming here for about 1 year and we are so happy with the service that we have received. They are gentle and caring and wonderful with our two boys. My 3 year old actually said he likes it here. Bonus for working parents are that they open on Saturday's! Highly recommend this place.
I am so grateful to have found Dr. Lim. I only wish we would have found her sooner. She is amazing with my two boys ages 4 and 5 they look forward to going to the dentist which wasn't always the case with our previous dentist. Dr. Lim is very informative and her personal laity is warm and welcoming. The office is spotless clean, they have tv's with movies and the staff is more than helpful with scheduling and anything else I need. The location is perfect and parking is never an issue. I highly recommend La Petite and Dr. Lim!!
Amazing! Very clean office. First time here for a filling and spacers for my 8-year old son without any type of sedation.(He had dental experience in the past in a different office with oral sedation). They started him with a movie then Dr. Lim was so calm and she talked to him during the whole procedure. She explained everything that kept him calm. She with her dental assistant was so quick and efficient. They made a good team. I'm happy that I have found our dentist. Thank you.
We've had a great experience here. My kids are totally fine going to the dentist in general, but they really like going here. My son recently had to have two teeth removed, however... That had me a little concerned. His adult teeth grew in behind his baby teeth. It was easy. They use a new drip system to administer numbing to the root of the tooth--at least new to me--and he just watched a cartoon during the entire process. I couldn't believe how easy it was. And how his sister's teeth have come in the same way, so guess who's next in a couple weeks??? I feel completely confident. I'm not a tv or video person with my kids, and this office very much is, so know that. For instance, they automatically suggested a video for my kids' first teeth cleaning, which I declined. I want my kids to be able to sit without entertainment, and they have the capacity to because they don't watch a lot of tv or play video games. (But for extractions? Watch away!)
My 7 year old son just had his first visit here last week. We had been a little behind on our Dentist appointments because we couldn't find a Dentist we liked. Making my appointment over the phone was easy and prompt. I was able to fill out registration forms online which made my check-in a breeze. The location was easy to find. The building has parking ($4 after 3:30pm) but with validation I didn't pay anything. The receptionist is super friendly and helpful. I was very impressed with how clean and welcoming their waiting room was. I even enjoyed a cup of coffee while we waited. The x-rays are quick in their seat, no need to move around. The Dentist was diligent and explained her findings clearly. She was patient and caring with my 7 year old. We have a follow up appointment coming up for treatment. I'm happy this far and excited to have found this Dentist office.
Friendly staff and Dr. Sonia is gentle and great with kids! The kids get to pick out a movie to watch during their treatment/procedure and sometimes get a prize afterwards. My daughter loves going to the dentist. I wish my experience at the dentist was similar haha.
I appreciate Dr. Lim's approach of letting things take a natural course and not trying to push unnecessary treatment, it truly is appreciated. My son feels very comfortable with her which helps tremendously with his high level of anxiety which is for the most part diminished during his visits to Le Petit Dental.
I have been look for a good kids dentist in the are others clams to be kid friendly but are not. This place really is and it's amazing, very friendly staff and the Dr is super good.
Dr Lim and her staff are AMAZING! My ten year old hated the dentist until we met Dr Lim after having an extraction and fillings done with Dr Lim my son danced out of her office. Dr Lim was very patient and very loving.
We came to Dr. Lim for a second opinion after my son's other's pediatric dentist said he was going to need two "baby" root canals and a bunch of cavities filled. They had recommended using anesthesia which I wasn't comfortable with. I should also mention that from the time we first started taking my son to the dentist when he was two, it was always a horrible experience- he would cry and scream and kick and we would basically have to hold him down to have his teeth cleaned. It was totally traumatic for both of us and just awful. His first visit to Dr. Lim was like that and she confirmed that he would need a fair amount of dental treatments (sans the "baby" root canals) but suggested that we bring him every month just to do fluoride treatments and to get him used to coming before we started treatments. She also suggested a more intensive home teeth cleaning regimen. All in all, there was a lot of effort involved but by the time we started his treatments (that included "the wand" and sitting in the chair for sometimes more than 30 minutes), my son could totally handle it. I am so thankful that we came to Dr. Lim for a second opinion and for her suggested approach. She has a calm, sweet bedside manner that my son always seemed to respond to and going to the dentist is not the dreaded event that it used to be. Very grateful that we found Dr. Lim!
The best pediatric dentist! So gentle and calming...my kids actually love going to see Dr Lim! The set up is ideal for kids.
First time here and it was amazing. No long waits, no trying to keep the children quiet and down, none of that. The receptionists are so nice and professional. It was our first visit there and they acted like they've always seen us. They asked my son if he wanted to pick out a movie he could watch and they had a great selection of choices! When it came to his appointment, they were quick and professional. I love how the movie played while he had his cleaning and check-up, so he was very distracted. I sat in a nearby corner and I was always with him. The tech also told me I could move closer to him if I wanted and there was so much room so I wasn't in anyone's way. Most importantly, our visit was very quick! We were in and out in no time. First visit but definitely not the last. My only gripe is the parking. I suggest parking on the street or in a nearby lot. Parking in that building is horrendous so I don't recommend it. But I do recommend this pediatric dentist!!!!
This is a great dentist for kids! They are very professional but also laid back. I bring my daughter here and she, like many kids, gets nervous. They are patient with her, putting both her and this mama's heart at ease. They also let kids choose from many different flavors of pastes, which is a bonus. I will definitely bring my baby here too when he has teeth! Check this place out! You won't be sorry!
Dr. Lim is an amazing dentist. She has an amazing bedside manner and finds ways to treat children calmly to ensure they are having a wonderful stay. She has treated our daughter for a little over a year now and she was able to not only eaze our daughter's anxieties but our own as well! We are so thankful to have such a caring dentist as Dr. Lim! She is well informed on her profession and we couldn't be happier with having our Dr. Lim as our daughter's dentist!
My kids just had another appointment today and I have to say I love this office, Dr Lim and all of the staff are so kind and calm as well as the overall environment and office setting- it really is the best dentist office we've found!
I have already reviewed this Dentist office but I need to update my review. If I could give a million stars I would. Dr. Kim and her staff are absolutely AMAZING. I cannot say it enough. She has state of the art equipment, her staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Now on to Dr. Lim, she is very nice, patient, knowledgeable, easy to talk to, she explains EVERYTHING that is needed for pre and post treatment, and informs the patient what she is doing as she's doing it. I wish she could see adults as I would be first in line. She will be my kids dentist as long as she has a practice! Keep up the good work, you guys are truly heaven sent
They've been so patient with my daughter. Very friendly staff and great work overall. Love how they explain everything in detail on what they are going to do.
We came to see Dr Lim to get a second opinion for our 3yr 10mo old son's cavities, and we're glad we did!We had come from another local Pasadena pediatric dentist and just didn't feel comfortable with them. The OfficeA great and welcoming environment the waiting room had plenty of books and small activities. Coffee and water for parents. StaffFriendly and very knowledgeable with answering any questions or concerns about billing and appointments.Dr LimI was very impressed by Dr Lims patience and care when it came to our son. He is a very active kid and had a very hard time getting his xrays. Dr Lim was very patient and anticipating of his needs. Our son has a lot of cavities, so when deciding which route to take for treatment we had many questions. The first big choice was whether or not to put him under anesthesia, being so young we were naturally concerned with this, however due to his adversity to having even the dentist touch his teeth we thought this would be best. Price wise the doctor that dr Lim used was also less expensive than the other dentist. The treatmentWe arrived early that day and followed the instructions not to feed any food for 8 hrs beforehand and no liquids 4 hrs before hand. He first got a shot for sedation before getting an IV to put him under. As I said above he had a lot of cavities, so the procedure took close to 2 hrs to complete. He came out sedation crying, and it took about 15 min for him to calm down but we stayed in the waiting area to make sure he was ok. His teeth look great and we glad we came!
We were directed by our primary dentist for our 6 yr old daughter. The care that Dr Lim have gave to our daughter was great, we really like her. Everything went quite smooth from initial consultation to treatment. She talks to the kid all the time and makes the kid relaxed. She is very patient even our kid cried a lot. We had general anaesthesia for a long treatment and it went quite smooth and very happy about the result.
Dr. Sonia and team had a great disposition, so sweet with our little guy. Really nice office with modern tech and amenities including toys and movies for kiddos while in the chair 👍🏼
Dr. Lim is amazing, we had a bunch of work done on my two daughters and she walked us through it and was totally patient as I accidentally asked a lot of the same questions my wife has asked previously. She even called me that evening after hours to make sure everything was healing normally for my girls. Outstanding!
Look no further Dr. Lim by far is the best pediatric dentist in Southern California! My 7 year old son has only had to have his teeth cleaned in the past, but while on vacation my son cracked his tooth and we needed to find a dentist fast. After our 1st check up we found that the tooth would have to be pulled. Dr. Lim and her assistant were awesome with making my son feel comfortable because he was so nervous and did not know what to expect. The procedure was quick! He was back to being a normal kid within the next hour!!! Thank you Dr. Lim and staff. They rock!!!!!!
Dr. Lim is the best pediatric dentist both of my children haver ever had. She is very patient (especially with my autistic son) and informative. The office is very kid friendly, clean, spacious and the staff is very attentative and courteous.
Dr. Lim is great. I came here because my husband was concerned about the radiation of the x-ray for the kids and she showed me the type she used and the amount of radiation it contained. I was pleased with the information she showed me and it also made my husband feel better about doing x-Ray for my kids. My kid also had her tooth extraction and the process was easy and pain-free. Overall, she's great with the kids and I will recommend it.
Fantastic first dental cleaning and x ray visit for our scared almost 4 year old. Dr Sonia is calm and sweet and so great with kids, as is the rest of her staff! So great!
We first heard about Dr. Lim and La Petite Kids Dentist on my Moms group page and was looking for a closer dentist. After researching, we figured we would give her a try.From the moment we walked in, the space was beautifully decorated and serene for a dentist since some kids are scared of seeing the dentist. The staff and Dr. Lim made my daughter feel comfortable and treated her like an adult, letting her pick out her own movie to watch during the teeth cleaning.Dr. Lim and her staff are kind and patient. My daughter told me she loves her new dentist and can't wait to come back again. So happy we have found a new dentist closer to home.
I've been taking my now 3.5-year-old daughter to Dr. Lim for about a year and a half, and every visit has been great. Dr. Lim is very, very nice, and is so patient with my little girl - who was terrified at first, but has gotten so used to going and knowing that it will be easy. My daughter has a couple of cavities, and Dr. Lim is very good at giving us lots of advice to keep her teeth healthy and slow down the progression in order to avoid aggressive treatments before my daughter is old enough to handle them. The appointments are always right on time, and we're in and out very quickly, there is an adorable play area in the waiting area - where we usually don't have time to stop when we arrive because they're always ready for us. (But my daughter likes to stay and play after her appointment!) The staff is excellent, and the office is immaculate and bright. I definitely recommend La Petite Dentist for young children.
Finally found the perfect dentist for my kids!!! Dr. Lim and her whole staff are the best!!! From the moment we walked in for their first appointment, we knew our search was over. If she didn't specialize in kids, I'd be a patient of hers myself! What's more? She even follows up with us the evening after a major procedure was done to see how my daughter was doing and feeling.
I really like La Petit Kids Dentist. I've taken my son twice and both times he has enjoyed the experience. He's 4! The waiting room is spacious and clean with cushy couches, soft pillows, clean toys, a sitting area for kiddos, and a coffee/tea/water station for parents. And Dr. Sonia is great with my boy - encouraging, patient, and talks to him directly about the importance of brushing and flossing. Both times, he watched paw patrol on the flatscreen tv while getting his cleaning and afterwards we left with an oral care goody bag. For our second visit (today) I brought my 8 month old with me and there was enough space for me to bring the stroller into the room with us. It's just a calm, peaceful, and smooth experience - which is super important when it comes to kids and doctors. Highly recommend.
I was in search for a good pediatric dentist for my son for a while. Thank goodness for yelp, I found Dr. Sonia Lim. She's super sweet and my son felt really comfortable with her and her friendly staff. I've been taking him to her for a couple of years now. He had a few cavities and she was super gentle and fast to remedied the cavities. This last visit, he has no cavities. Yay!!!!! The place is really clean and high tech with warmth.
We recently had to switch over to Dr. Lim as was easier to get my kids to with their school schedule. Thus far we are very happy with the change! The office staff is friendly, with both the kids and parents! Dr. Lim was fabulous with the kids and she took the time to answer all my questions and explain everything in great detail.
Excellent kids dentist -- we've tried more than one and Dr. Lim has a perfect touch with the kids, the environment is just right so they're really comfortable. The kids get to pick their movies, if they have to get a cavity filled they get to pick a big toy at the end (not just the little stuff in the box!) huge selling point. And the staff is always friendly and professional.
La Petit KIds is the best dentist office for kids. The office is always clean and my kids love the waiting room. Dr. Lim is amazing, she really cares about her patients. Office staff is very helpful and caring. We brought in my 3 year for a check up because we knew he needed work. Dr. Lim explained he needed major work. He had several cavities and tooth decay in the front teeth. She explained we could try doing the work without IV sedation to see if he could handle being in the chair for a long period of time. Well we tried but my little guy would not have it. So I decided to go with IV Sedation. I was so nervous and scared but Dr Lim and Dr. Bankie (Anesthesiologist) were amazing. They gave me all the information and told me what would happen step by step. Once the procedure was done, both doctors stayed with us till my son was awake and asking to get off and play. I will never take my kids to another dentist. I also want to point out that I visited two other dentists offices but they did not compare to La Petit...
We have been searching for pediatric dentist and didn't know where to go. I was recommended by my sister in law. She brings her kids here. Dr. Lim is so friendly and takes her time to explain everything throughly. The staff here is super friendly as well. I like that they let you pick a movie to watch while they are working on your tooth! I would totally recommended this place to everyone!
Dr. Lim is awesome, prior to this my 7 year old was terrified of the dentist! We couldn't even get x rays for her. At Dr. Lims office she was a little nervous until the doctor talked to her and guided her the whole way through the procedure. To my amazement my 7 year old loves coming to the dentist now! She even asked me to take her to see DrLim when she had a loose tooth! Today I brought my 3 yrs for her first check up and she loves it here! No crying while cleaning! They get to pick out a video to watch during the procedure. The x ray machine they use is awesome does not hurt their little guns at all! Recommended my sister to this office and her 5 yr old loves it too! The staff here is very friendly and helpful!
Good dentistry with clean and welcoming facilities for young kids. Dr. Lim took the time to answer any questions and provided good tips to help keep the lil chompers in good condition.
I dont know what to say, I knew my daughter was going to need major work done on her teeth at 3 years old, I was so ashamed and embarrassed and had the worst anxiety.. the second I walked in for our first appointment the place was very welcoming all the staff was so nice! I feel like Darlene (the front worker) is a friend of mine now. Dr. Lim is the sweetest, gentle, kindest lady I have ever met and I knew she cared about my childs safety. I came back a month later for our scheduled appointment where my daughter was under anesthesia for over 3 hours.. I was a mess but the anthesologist they use was fantastic and she reassured me she would take care of my baby like it was her own.. sitting out in the waiting room waiting for 3 hours was so nerve wracking but Darlene is such a kind spirited person and I felt like I made a friend that day.After surgery my daughter had extracted front teeth and extracted molar we came back today to put her pedi partials in and her spacer from the pulled teeth... I cant express how glad I am I found this office we will definitely be coming here as long as we can. Mind you I drive 1.5 hours to get here from where I live worth every single mile. I'd fly here if I lived out of state.. any anxious parents out there come HERE they will take care of your childs teeth and take care of any anxiety you may have.. thank you so much La petite! Thank you for giving us a great first experience.
I am so thankful for Dr Lim and her staff! I've learned less is more when it comes to pediatric dentist. This is the 3rd dentist we've taken our toddler to after a dreaded experience of getting cavities filled and being strapped down at another office :'(My daughter was scared to be back at the dentist but her teeth suffered from so many cavities even after religiously brushing twice a day :(Dr Lim and her assistant were so sweet, kind and gentle to my little one. The office isn't over the top with kid decor but has just the right touches for a calming welcoming environment. We were extremely nervous about choosing to use IV sedation because her age but her teeth were in such bad shape we knew she wouldn't allow the work needed to be done. Dr Lim and the anesthesiologist prepped us well for what to expect and what we would experience post procedure. We went early morning and got to hold our daughter till she was sedated enough for the IV and we were able to be in the room once she was waking up. It was a little sad seeing her disoriented and very dizzy afterwards, but so much better than seeing her strapped down screaming and crying like her previous experience at a different office. She remembers falling asleep and feeling dizzy but she still enjoys coming in for her follow ups and cleanings we do every 3 months now to keep an eye on her cavities. Thank you so much Dr Lim! I'm sorry my review is so long but I had to share all the details!! :)
Both of our kids love it here. Well, sometimes there are tears but it is the dentist afterall and Mom gets nervous.
Dr Lim always did her best to check my son's teeth, and my son doesn't afraid of seeing the dentist anymore.
Very professional dentistry. Dr. Sonia explained well. Darlene was awesome! Due to my sons condition I look forward to future appointments.
yes, I highly recommend it. unfortunately I have to move my kids from the first dentist they had do to the distance, but I'm so glad their pediatrician recommended to me Dr. Lim is amazing, and her personal as well.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟😁❤👍
My 5 year old son had a dental surgery today and he needs to put to sleep through I. V. Sedation to do multiple dental works job well done Dr Sonia Lim and the anesthesiologist was did such a great job they both knowledgeable and explained about the procedure they are very gentle with the kids , playful asking which movies they want to watch such a great office . Thank you Dr. Sonia Lim and to awesome Anesthesiologist. It was a great experienced especially with the kids they know what they supposed to do.
Dr. Lim was so kind and skillful with my daughter that she actually enjoyed the whole cleaning procedure. I am grateful that they made it a fun and interesting experience for her and that she won’t be afraid to go to the dentist in the future, she being 3 and a half in age only.
Dr. Sonia Lim is truly incredible and understands small children from a developmental standpoint. My daughter was TERRIFIED of the dentist we went to in Glendale for her 1 yr old appointment. Dr. Sonia was the complete opposite- she took time to let my 2 year old daughter warm up to her, had me hold my daughter in my lap for the exam, took her time when my daughter was clearly afraid vs. rushing us, talked gently to her, sang to her while cleaning her teeth (which completely changed everything- that was the moment my daughter stopped crying completely), and gave me really sound advice for improving our tooth brushing at home/how to prepare for our next appointment in six months. I've been doing what Dr. Sonia suggests for toddlers who are reluctant to open their mouths for her. She suggested we "practice" at home by having my daughter lay down on the floor and tilt her head back while I brush her teeth with just water. "Play Dr. Sonia!" has become one of my daughter's favorite games, as silly as that sounds. Meanwhile, I get a great look at my kid's teeth now (including molars) and an extra brush in before nap time. She even has me sing, "this is the way we brush our teeth," when I do it and pretends I am Dr. Sonia! She loved her which is amazing considering she has been fearful of pretty much every single doctor up until this point. I am a speech language pathologist and honestly I feel like Dr. Sonia gave me some amazing tools for when I begin working again and need to complete oral motor exams. The lay down method of looking into kid's mouths is wonderful for kids who are afraid or who just don't open their mouths up enough to see everything.Thank you so much, Dr. Sonia. Best pediatric dentist I've ever worked with and I have met quite a few over the years!
So far so good. She agreed to not take ex-rays of my children's teeth unless medically necessary. You would not believe how hard it is to find a dentist to agree to this, even though the FDA recommends children NOT be given routine ex-rays. The recommendation by the FDA is to reserve ex-rays for when it is medically indicated and not just give them on a schedule. La Petite has agreed to this, and I am so happy. We only had our first appointment, so I will check back and let you know how it goes throughout the months and years to come.
After our family dentist retired we were looking for someone just like her. We really wanted our kids to have a positive experience and not be so scared of the dentist office. We accidentally walked into Dr. Sonia's office after my daughter visited her allergist. We fell in love with the calm cute decor of the office and once we talked to the doctor we knew right away she would be the one for our kids. My son loves how gentle she is with him. My daughter still needs to work on being not too scared but she is getting better each time. Dr. Sonia is the best. She is the best I have ever seen. She is patient, calm and thorough. She even calls to see how the kids are doing after their visit. The staff is amazing and they really do treat you like a family. Our kids are truly in good hands.
From the time I walked in everyone was so friendly. They were not busy so we had no wait. They let kids pick a mo ie to watch during the visit. It was very easy. Dr. Sonia and her hygenist are very kind and gentel. Thank you!
Dr. Lim and the staff were very helpful for my son's first dental visit. I was afraid for him but their patience and warmth as soon as we walked into the office helped with my son's dental anxiety. He chose The Grinch as his movie of choice, yes the children get to choose a movie to watch during their dental visit. He got X-RAYS(pictures) taken of his teeth. I walked right out of the office and he felt very comfortable with the X-ray tech. Then, Dr. Lim walked in for his routine cleaning which was quick and easy.I definitely recommend La Petite Kids!
Dr Sonia Lim is phenomenal at her practice. She's extremely patient with her patients. Has the best staff and they use the best tools to treat the kids. My daughter loves Dr Lim and the staff. She never feels scared to visit the dentist now. Thank you Dr Sonia Lim and staff.
If I can give 10 stars to La Petite Kids Dentist, I would! That is how satisfied and happy I am with Dr. Lim and the staff of La Petite. At first, we brought my son to Star Kids Dental, but I was not satisfied and convinced with their plan on his teeth that's why I looked for other opinions. Not to discredit Star Kids or anything, I would say that they are also good but their plan was not the answer I was looking for. And I was not looking for a good dentist, I was looking for the best. And I found the best in La Petite! I cannot thank Dr. Lim enough for doing a great job on my son's 4 front teeth. Now I can stop worrying about his teeth because I'm confident that he is under the care of the best dentist in town :)
I absolutely LOVE this facility it is so kid friend from the painting on the walls to the available books toys in the waiting room. Little things like the pretty bright pink gloves and the theme of the facility (comes off to me as under the sea) really help the environment seem fun. The equipment they have to help ease the child is phenomenal, from allowing the child to pick a movie to watch while in their dental chair (to distract and calm them) to their wireless xray machines! Dr. Lim and her staff are very sweet and knowledgeable my 3 year old gets excited to go to the dentist (I know right?!).
Dr.Lim and her staff are wonderful! We have been here 4 times with my 5.5 year old since moving here from Texas. Finding a new dentist can be hard. I'm so grateful we found Dr. Lim. My daughter actually doesn't mind going and likes to watch the movies and shows they have available for children as they get their dental work.
I am so thankful for the care Dr. Lim and her team have given my boys. My 4 year old needed extensive dental work and Dr. Lim did such an amazing job!!! The team was so friendly, compassionate and caring. I feel so blessed to have found her dental office. As a mother, Dr. Lim can relate to parents taking in their toddlers for first time. The team and Dr. Bhanki, the anathesiologist, made us feel so comfortable and secure taking our little one in. From the beginning, I knew I wanted my son under IV sedation . After researching different providers and visiting this office, I knew here my little one would be in good hands. I couldn't be more happier!
Dr. Sonia was highly recommended and we are so happy to have found her. Everyone at the office is friendly and approachable. The kids always have a good experience here.
Our child has been coming to Dr. Lim for over a year now and looks forward to her visits every time. The staff is one of a kind and very helpful.
I give them 6 stars ******!!!!! My daughters have had such bad experiences in the past year with two different children dentistry locations. La Petite Kids Dentist and Dr Sonia Lim are phenomenal in the specialty of children dentistry. They are on another level!!! Dr Lim makes your child feel so comfortable and confident in the exams and procedures at hand. Her extensive experience and professional yet friendly demeanor throughout your visit make you feel at home. Her staff (Jessica, Darlene, and Jovana) are truly an exceptional staff who treat you with dignity and respect and make your entire visit easy and enjoyable for the entire family. Two thumbs up and highly recommended if you're looking for a professional, gracious, friendly, clean, and knowledgeable dentistry for your children.
I have been to many dentist offices and Dr. Lim has been the BEST to all three of my kids. They finally love to come to the dentist. And trust me, finding someone my son is comfortable with due to his easy cavity/root canal issues, Dr Lim and staff has worked wonders. Thank you so much for taking the stress off my shoulders. I always recommend her office to friends & family.
We needed a pediatric dentist because my 5 year old son has multiple cavities and needs a lot of help (entertainment/distractions/laughing gas, etc) and someone who knows how to make him feel comfortable. Boy, was I glad I found Dr. Sonia Lim! We were so happy with his first check-up/consultation and first round of fillings. Dr. Lim was super efficient and is awesome with kids as well as parents. She explained her procedures and answered all of my questions (I was a little nervous because it was my son's first time receiving laughing gas). They have a variety of movies/cartoons to keep him entertained and distracted. My son was so happy that he asked me if he could come back the next day! I also want to mention her staff is super friendly and happy to answer any additional questions I may have. I wished I was able to come here when I was growing up! I have another son who is 2 and 1/2 years old and is deathly afraid of doctors. I can't wait to take him here soon because I think he won't be scared. The cherry on top is that parking is free with validation! It's so depressing when I have to take my kids to other doctor appointments and have to pay $5 each visit so I really appreciate this bonus and everything else about coming to this dentist.
This pediatric dentist is wonderful. She is very kind and really cares about dental health. My son is severely autistic, and she accommodates us above and beyond!! She also gave me great advice regarding my son's dental care. Her assistant at the front desk is a genuine angel.I feel so lucky to have found this dentist and Dr. Hom for my family.
Dr. Lim is amazing and the staff are so kind. My 3 year old son received a crown within 30minutes and there was no tears! Dr. Lim explained everything she did in words that he could understand. My son has had such positive experiences here and he loves the dentist now!
Did not think a place like this can actually exist but it does and I am so happy to have found it for my kids. They are the epitome of how to run a business. Thank you for everything you do and your attention to even the smallest details!! Can't praise them enough.
For any parent who has a child that is reluctant to see a dentist, Dr. Lim is the perfect dentist for you. We have a child that has anxiety issues and he was absolutely terrified to see a dentist. Given that our child is in his early teens, it had been a challenge to find the right office for him. Upon calling the office to inquire about their services, we were relieved to hear that Dr. Lim had experience working with reluctant children. We decided to give her a try. On our first visit, we were greeted by the friendly staff and there was no waiting time. Dr. Lim focused on our son, and was extremely thoughtful and patient while working on him. She explained everything she was doing to put him at ease. Our son has been completely comfortable and trusts Dr. Lim, and we now have zero problems, zero arguments when visiting the dentist office thanks to Dr. Lim and her staff.
Dr. Lim was kind and caring with our 5 year old who needed anesthesia as part of her treatment. When a young child needs to be put under, Dr. Lim shuts down the office and devotes a lengthy time slot just for the one patient. Because our daughter is terrified of dentists, her treatment took far longer than it should have. This came at Dr. Lim's expense, who politely made no mention of this fact. She and her assistant Darlene were also kind and attentive with me as I repeatedly requested documents while wrangling with insurance to help cover anesthesia costs which can get very pricey. Just a heads up. There was some confusion regarding insurance coverage. Dr. Lim may tell you anesthesia is not covered by insurance. Yet, I discovered though Blue Shield dental that a small portion of it is. Because Dr. Lim is 'in-network' but her anesthesiologist is not, this made it more difficult to recoup costs. Nevertheless, throughout this process of discovery, Dr. Lim was professional and always made sure the lines of communication were open.
La Petite Dentist is great. I called because my daughter had a chipped tooth and she was really concerned. I was able to get her an appointment that same day. The dentist is great and walks her through everything that is being done. Which for kids can be quite scary. She makes the process seem easy. My sister recommended her because my nieces come here and I have to say she's really great. I would definitely recommend her to parents. Kids are always so scared to go to the dentist but rest assured your child will be in great hands. We had been searching for a great dentist and I'm very happy we chose La Petite Dentist. This is definitely our go to dentist. You won't be disappointed with her. The staff is super kid friendly. You even get to watch a movie while your getting your teeth fixed. It's a wonderful atmosphere.
Dr. Sonia Lim is great with kids and provides excellent care. She explains everything she does to make them feel at ease. My kids love the personal TV screens and the nice selection of DVDs they can watch during their appointment. The clinic is very clean and modern. There's even coffee and free water bottles for waiting parents.
We couldn't be happier with Dr. Lim and her wonderful staff. She is great with kids and provides excellent care. I love how she explains everything she does to make them feel at ease. My daughter had a cavity once and she didn't even mind the filling. She walked out with a nice toy, as well as a new tooth brush and tooth paste. My kids love the personal TV screens and the nice selection of DVDs they can watch during the appointment. The clinic is very clean and modern. The coffee machine in the waiting room and free water bottles are also nice.
We love Petite Dentist! I found them looking for a second opinion after hearing my five year old needed two root canals. She told me that she would be able to just fill as cavities and not even give Novocain! She numbed each tooth individually without a shot and my daughter, who was previously very scared of the dentist, said it was so easy! My other daughter went as well and sailed through her cleaning and X-rays no problem. She saved us!!
I love this dentist. I was nervous taking my kids to just any dentist because you don't want to frighten them with 1 bad experience. So I went to see Dr Lim and she's awesome!!!! I love the way she interacted with the kids and she made my kids so comfortable. I highly recommend her to anyone with children. She's so sweet and nice and I'm so so glad I found her. The office is nice and clean and the staff is amazing. I can't say anything negative about this place. Hard to believe but it's true.
I took my 5 1/2 year old daughter in to see Dr Lim for the first time this afternoon and I couldn't be more pleased. The office is immaculate, welcoming and definitely child friendly. My daughter immediately felt at ease. Dr Lim was so patient and genuine, which means a lot, especially because my daughter is on the spectrum and sensitive to loud sounds. Dr Lim took the time to explain everything to her in order for her to understand and after the exam/cleaning she explained what we can do between visits to prepare her for the next visit. We have found our dentist and will definitely be back :)
We are SO thankful we found Dr Sonia Lim! She is kind and patient, and very thorough with her explanation of a treatment plan. Being a parent herself, she has an excellent demeaner with children, and has a warm and humorous way of explaining each foreign tool that will go into the child's mouth. My 3 year old was never uncomfortable, and even told me she was excited to go back after the first visit to 'watch the movie and get a toy after' (provided by Dr Sonia's toy reward chest). For one of our visits, there was confusion over the appointment time, but Dr Sonia answered the phone herself, and rushed up from the parking to great us and get to work without the assistance of technicians. This really impressed me. The front desk staff and technicians have also been wonderful.
Dr. Lim and her staff are EXCELLENT. Dr. Lim is a fantastic dentist and has a gentle and playful approach to her patients. I really appreciate how she explains each action she is taking and why while they are in the chair. It relaxes them. They have no fear of dentist appointments - even to fill a cavity for my 3 year old. The office is very nice (and coffee for parents!!) and you can park in the building for free with validation.
This dentist is amazing, so patient, kind professional and thorough. Admin staff is wonderful and easy to work with. Everything is super high tech and geared towards kids. Top notch!
We have used another office in the past and we will not be able to take the kids anywhere else after visiting La Petite Kids Dentist. The kids love the atmosphere and we loved the staff and Dr. Lim. Everything was very efficient and comfortable. As a parent it is easy to watch the appointment. Dr. Lim made the kids excited to be there.
This dentist office is so cute and clean. It's perfect for any first time patient. My 18 month old loved the waiting area and even more the TV dental chairs. Dr. Lim did a quick clean and was able to tell us what to watch out for and how to take care of our daughters teeth. I highly recommend this pediatric dentist office!
We love, love, love Dr. Lim. Believe it or not, it's been tough to find a pedodontist and I am a dentist! Most pedo offices seem to go for the corporate factory model, but Dr. Lim is simply an old-fashioned patient centric dental care provider. She is awesome, the office is awesome and I am so glad that my son is now a patent. (And, no, I can't treat him myself).
Dr. Sonia Lim is super patient dentist and very gentle with kids. Been coming here since my daughter was one and at first she was a bit afraid, but the staff and dr. Lim were super helpful, nothing seems to phase them :). In addition, the office is super kid-friendly including toys in the waiting area and individual tv on each examination chair! Now my daughter is three and she gets excited about seeing a dentist!
Dr. Lim is awesome and so patient with both of our kids! The office is set up really nice too. Perfect for kiddos!
Dr. Lim @ La Petite Kids Dentist supersedes my expectations of the qualities a kids dentist should have. Patient- she takes her time with each child; explaining, demonstrating, and treating. Dr. Lim has built a positive relationship with my kids which is why they love visiting her. Caring- she is intentionally careful during each cleaning and during any other procedure. Expert- she is an expert at her craft. I learn from her feedback and trust that she is suggesting the right treatment for my kids. Dr. Lim carefully reviews X-rays and develops a treatment plan. Her staff is incredibly warm and welcoming. With two little ones my visits at La Petite Kids Dentist is a breeze. They offer tons of movies to keep little ones entertained. I am truly happy with all of their services.
She was amazing with my son. He is prone to cavities. Her practice is beautiful and her work is thorough and caring. Highly recommend her to anyone! Thanks Dr. Lim.
I can't get tired enough of saying that I LOVE this place! I had a horrible experience with the first pediatric dentist. I search and came across La Petite Kids Dentist. I'm so happy I gave them a chance. It was a blessing, really because I prayed for a good dentist for my son and my prayers were answered. I took my 5 year old in for a consultation. Everything just went smooth from the first day I called to schedule the appointment, to filling the cavities. Everyone is so friendly and understanding and they knew how to calm MY nerves because My little one was in aw with the cool movies and service he was receiving. Dr Lim is the most caring and patient pediatric dentist I've ever delt with. You can honestly see that she loves her job and takes pride in her work. This is the kind of doctor you can trust your kids with and might I add she calls you later on the evening to see how your kid is! She's awesome! I'm definitely recommending this place to everyone! Double stars!!
Great Childrens Dentist!, New office great staff. ALL 3 of my young children love her! She is very informative and gentle. No strapping your child down. Love this office- Highly recommend!
Dr. Sonia Lim is awesome! She makes kids feel so comfortable and she explains everything to you. The staff at La Petite Kids Dentistry is excellent. My daughter has visited the office a few times and each visit is excellent. Highly recommended La Petite Kids Dentistry.
Oh wow, great place. Never expected to be this great. Definitely worth it!!! I highly recommend it for any parents.
Dr Lim is very patient and capable. They were able to get my VERY shy and reluctant 3 yr old to take X-rays and get a cleaning, no problem. All good so far!
Dr. Sonia is great, she makes sure your child feels comfortable and safe. She's also soft spoken. Her assistance are also great. The office is very clean and modern.
Awesome staff! Dr. Sonia is great about explaining everything and the office staff is so nice. Also like that there's not a lot of waiting time in the office and validated parking. Would definitely recommend.
My daughter likes it Better than all of the dentists she has been to
We had a great experience here. Dr. Lim is very patient and great with kids. It was my son's first cleaning and xrays and he did great! The staff is also very nice and professional. We will definitely come back.
Dr. Lim is an excellent dentist and her entire staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The office at La Petite Dentist in Pasadena is warm and welcoming, with comfortable couches, and a wonderful children's area with videos, books, toys, and coloring books. Dr. Lim was recommended to us by our pediatrician and we have been so happy with her. From our very first visit with her she made our 3 year old daughter feel comfortable, explaining everything she was doing and all the tools she was using. Dr. Lim even allows her patients to pick a movie to watch while getting a cleaning. Dr. Lim also gave us excellent guidance on which toothbrush to use and she offered helpful techniques to get my daughter to brush twice a day for two minutes. My daughter now looks forward to her appointments and loves visiting the dentist. As a parentI am so thankful to Dr. Lim and her entire staff for being so sweet to my daughter and making her love going to the dentist.
We have been following Dr. Lim since my kids were three year-old. Dr. Lim is great with kids and extremely patient. She is very detailed and professional. We really trust her with our children's dental care!
Dr. Sonia did an amazing job filling multiple cavities on my 4 year old son. She is very soft-spoken and put my son immediately are ease. We came here after another office wanted to charge an arm and a leg for full sedation. Dr. Sonia was able to help my son feel comfortable and fill most of the cavities without any anesthesia at all. For his one crown, they have a special wand for single tooth anesthetic and it didn't even numb his whole mouth. He felt great the whole time. The office staff is very friendly, it is clean and very kid friendly with movies and prizes. His older sisters were able to watch a movie in the waiting room during the procedures. Costs were very reasonable. Highly recommend for any fearful child for a great experience.
Dr. Sonia is THE best dentist ever! Her office is so soothing, her demeanor and skill are so perfect especially for children, I wish she was an adult dentist as well. Hands down, highly recommend her as the best and only dentist that your children must go to!
This is my 6yo less than 1hr after tooth extraction and a decay tooth treatment. He literally threw away the gauge and started eating. I'm amazed when he said: "it's not painful". The clinic and equipments are state of the art, there is TV on each station and the kids pick what they want to watch from a selection of latest animation/movies (including my 2 other non patient kids, wow!) my kiddo picks a stuff animal to hug during treatment and get a toy after that. When it's done, I'm shocked that it's so fast and Dr Lim said: "got to to be fast when I'm working with kids". I was so impressed that I asked if they accept adult patient.... nope, haha! The price? Not expensive at all (we are covered by Delta Dental)Highly recommend this clinic to all parents, MUST COME!
Finally I found a wonderful pediatric dentist! My daughter Andrea was so scared but Dr. Sonia Lim did an amazing job calming her and making her experience wonderful ! The staff, Darleen and Jessica were wonderful in answering all my questions! Thank you Le Petit kids dentist !
really good service and my 4years old son love it very much, highly recommended for all Parents with kids!
Dr. Lim and the staff are very polite and professional. My 3 year old has had a positive experience on his last two visits. We also appreciate the suggestions Dr. Lim's provides us- so we can continue to maintain my son's healthy teeth.
Everything was amazing from scheduling the appointment, to getting my lil one in the chair for exam X-rays and cleaning, as well as completing same day tx. Oh and to top it off my 3yr old leaving happy while being numb and not even knowing she got a shot. And of course me leaving happy cause she's not crying. I plan on telling everyone I know about how wonderful dr Sonia and her staff is.
We were in search for a pediatric dentist for our 8 years old daughter, Viorica. We searched the web and found La Petite Kids Dentist.We checked the reviews and they were all 5 stars.What else can you ask for?We scheduled an appointment for cleaning and check up.Dr. Sonia Lim was extremely nice, patient and friendly with our daughter.We were lucky to find Dr. Sonia Lim and now she is our pediatric dentist.The office is very nice and provides lots of kids CD's ( or you can bring your own CD) to keep them preoccupied during the procedures.Last but not least, the staff is very friendly.You will not be sorry to take your kids to Dr. Sonia Lim.
I found La Petite kids Dentistry through reviews on a couple of websites. I had to take my daughter to the dentist for her routine cleaning (first time) and wanted to go somewhere that focused on children and had a relaxing environment. Atmosphere: It is located in a very clean 4 or 5 story business building. Upon walking in, there are two spacious areas to sit while waiting for the doctor. There is also a flat screen TV mounted with children movies playing. There is a small table with various children's books and coloring materials. To the left, there is a refreshment area with coffee and water bottles in a refrigerator available to everyone. The interior of the office is very spacious and warm, with themed decor. There are tv's placed at each dentist chair mounted above so your child gets to choose a movie that he or she wants to see and they play it while performing the services. It makes the whole process so easy when your child is focused on the movie. My daughter really enjoyed it. At the end of the service, if she did well, the doctor let's her choose a toy from their toy shelf as a reward. My daughter loved it. Staff: Everyone I had to deal with, starting with the ladies at the front desk, the dental assistant and the Doctor were all extremely pleasant and easy to work with. They treated my daughter so well, I don't think I've ever seen her that comfortable in a similar setting. Everyone was very calm and treated her so nicely and the entire process was smooth. Quality: the doctor recommended some early services for preventative measures and gave me a few options to go with. She was very thorough on what we were choosing and talked us through the whole process while she was working. Everyone was very informative and detailed. I received a call the day prior to confirm the appointment and with my busy work schedule, it was a comfort knowing that I'd get a reminder sent. Overall: I wish I could give La Petite Kids Dentist 10 stars. The service was outstanding, everyone was extremely personable and courteous and the office and waiting area is clean and spacious. If you aren't sure about this place, I can only tell you to at least come by for a consultation and you will find out very quickly that they have one of the best children's dentists in the area and completely worth every penny.
Dr. Lim and her staff are wonderful. My son was very nervous before extracting his tooth but she made him calm and comfortable. Now he isn't afraid or nervous coming to La Petite. I strongly recommend this place.
WOW!!! If only I could leave 9 stars, one for every year of my son's life that he has not gone to Dr. Lim! For the first time, my son had a positive experience at a dentist, and we've tried 4 with him. We arrived at a next day appointment with Dr. Lim already knowing that my son needed work done, and Dr. Lim put him at ease immediately. There's something about the way she talked to him -- and she talked to him through the entire, multi-faceted procedure -- that she not only got him to easily cooperate, but he actually LAUGHED in the middle of things! She explained every detail to me beforehand, even having me look in her little mirror with my own eyes. She is making a plan for his adult teeth to come in properly, based on all of his previous work done, which I really appreciate. She let him pick out a toy from an incredible display -- now Silly Putty is his favorite thing. My son is still talking about his visit 2 days later. Dr. Lim's receptionist is so personable and efficient, and her assistant is just as skilled, knowledgeable, and attentive as she is. To top it all off, Dr. Lim called me in the evening to check up on my son -- she cares that much!I love the decor of the spotless office, plus there's tea, coffee, and a frig with little water bottles available. Super comfy, clean, chic, kid friendly without being babyish -- love that.Thank you, Dr. Lim, for turning my son's dental life around completely!
I consider myself a good father overall, but given that my 3 year old had 9 cavities, perhaps I get an F in the dental hygiene portion of parenting, lowering my ranking to a just ok dad. Luckily, I found this little gem of a pediatric dental office in Pasadena. The place a immaculately clean, I would eat sushi off the floor there if they'd let me. As you walk in, you get the immediate impression that a lot of thought went into the design and lay out. The place exuded warm and welcoming character, as does the staff, a far cry from the medieval dungeons I recall from my own childhood. In comes Dr. Sonia, a warm and personable soft-spoken clinician of high regard with a string of accolades following her name and reputation. My daughter took an instant liking to her friendly and non-threatening disposition. Given my kid's natural apprehension towards strangers, this was an important start. I knew what we were in for before we went in, how difficult our nightly ritual of chasing my little girl around with a toothbrush is, and I must say that the experience was much more pleasant than I had expected. Exercising patience, tenderness, and a steady hand, she managed to undo the damage that all those Skittles and Gummy Bears inflicted on my baby's chompers, and after every session, she was skipping around with glee as if nothing happened. The vast library of cartoons and Disney movies displayed overhead were a welcome distraction during the procedures, the whole ordeal of two "baby root canals" and crowns followed by several fillings was surprisingly painless. We have found our kids' dentist, and my only complaint is that I'm too aged and long in the tooth to be Dr. Sonia's patient myself. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sonia to all my friends and family. Je vous remercie Dr. Sonia.
Me and my daughter love the office. Dr. Lim is very nice helpful and patient with my daughter. My daughter needed treatment and was nervous but Dr. Lim got her through it all. Thank you Dr. Lim
First time for my 2 year old girl to see a dentist. Very clean and nice clinic. Dr Lim is very patient to explain everything. Look forward to next visit!
We just switched to Dr. Lim's office. Our first appointment was on Saturday. We found Dr. Lim to be knowledgeable, diligent, and thorough - everything you want in a dentist. She is also patient, gentle, and caring with kids - which should be a pre-requisite for any pediatric dentist (but, sadly, isn't). Her staff is also outstanding, and the office is clean, well-equipped, and comfortable. We're so happy we were referred to her. I have a feeling we'll be here a very long time.
Dr Sonia is the best dentist ever! She is so kind and gentle and makes every visit perfect!! Thank you Dr Sonia for being so awesome!!
We are happy to have found Dr. Lim to be our 5-year-old son's dentist. On our first visit, she and her staff were able take some X-rays and clean his teeth. My child's previous dentist could not perform any procedure on him because my son has anxiety and gagging reflex. Each visit at his office was a failure. Dr. Lim is gentle and patient. She found cavities and took time to thoroughly explain to us what needs to be done. All her staff are nice and friendly as well. They quickly helped my son feel at ease. The following day he exclaimed, "Mommy, I like the new dentist and my own TV. " My son is not afraid to go to the dentist anymore.
Dr. Sonia Lim is seriously the best. We've been going to another very popular pediatric dentist office in South Pas for a long time but was not happy. Thankfully, my dear friend recommended Dr. Sonia Lim so we decided to visit and the experience was like night and day difference! Dr. Lim is extremely knowledgeable and great with kids. Also love that her office has the most up to date technology including X-ray machine that had the most minimal exposed of radiation to kids (which was my big concern taking X-rays) and it takes fool proof / precise picture. The other office we used to go had old machine and they would have to take multiple X-rays just to get one good one! Horrible. On the same visit, we got to do cleaning and treatment for my 4 year old son. He didn't feel any unpleasantness through out the whole procedure and everything went so smoothly! The office is very clean, clam, friendly and all the children patients were happy too. Almost surreal, too good to be true all thanks to Dr. Lim and her great staff!If I could do over, I wish she was my son's dentist all these years. She is seriously the best pediatric dentist and I HIGHLY recommend her!!! Thank you Dr. Sonia Lim!
I absolutely love this place! Dr. Sonia Lee is great and her staff is super sweet. Awesome place for kids to have a good dental experience. My 15 month old daughter can be difficult when it comes to brushing and Dr. Lee made it easy and painless plus she was patient and vary comforting.. highly recommend!
Highly Recommend La Petite Kids Dentist!We've visiting this office twice and both times we've had really great experiences. Dr. Sonia is so sweet and patient with the kids and great at explaining things to the parents! Marcy the hygienist is super friendly, as is the receptionist. The office is very clean and spacious. The first time we went I found great street parking right next to the building, but depending on the time there may not be street parking allowed. The great thing is that La Petite validates in the lot right next to the building (the driveway to the lot it just north of the building). They are also great about figuring out insurance and letting you know the cost before starting work. We've been to a couple pediatric dentists in the area and this is the practice I would recommend!
Dr. Sonia is WONDERFUL! she is so sweet and so absolutely patient with everyone she comes in contact with! I would recommend her to anyone I know. She knows exact verbiage to say to keep your child calm and cool during all visits!
I consider myself a good father overall, but given that my 3 year old had 9 cavities, perhaps I get an F in the dental hygiene portion of parenting, lowering my ranking to a just ok dad. Luckily, I found this little gem of a pediatric dental office in Pasadena. The place a immaculately clean, I would eat sushi off the floor there if they'd let me. As you walk in, you get the immediate impression that a lot of thought went into the design and lay out. The place exuded warm and welcoming character, as does the staff, a far cry from the medieval dungeons I recall from my own childhood. In comes Dr. Sonia, a warm and personable soft-spoken clinician of high regard with a string of accolades following her name and reputation. My daughter took an instant liking to her friendly and non-threatening disposition. Given my kid's natural apprehension towards strangers, this was an important start. I knew what we were in for before we went in, how difficult our nightly ritual of chasing my little girl around with a toothbrush is, and I must say that the experience was much more pleasant than I had expected. Exercising patience, tenderness, and a steady hand, she managed to undo the damage that all those Skittles and Gummy Bears inflicted on my baby's chompers, and after every session, she was skipping around with glee as if nothing happened. The vast library of cartoons and Disney movies displayed overhead were a welcome distraction during the procedures, the whole ordeal of two "baby root canals" and crowns followed by several fillings was surprisingly painless. We have found our kids' dentist, and my only complaint is that I'm too aged and long in the tooth to be Dr. Sonia's patient myself. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sonia to all my friends and family. Je vous remercie La Petite Kids Dentist.
Everything was great. Wonderful experience. Definitely coming back. X-rays was a breeze and everyone was very accommodating and encouraging.
My son loved this place. The doctor was very gentle with him and took very good care of him. The staffs are very friendly and welcoming. Will be coming back for every dental check up
Dr. Sonia is amazing! My son, who had been afraid to go a dentist in the past, had a wonderful experience! Dr. Sonia and the staff are so welcoming and very nice. My son said that the entire procedure was very relaxing and he did not feel any pain at all. He's alreading asking when his next appointment is. Would definitely recommend to friends and relatives. Thanks!
Dr Sonia is amazing and her staff are so sweet too! My 3 daughters had their first cleaning with her and now they can't wait for the next one! Glad we transferred to this office!
Today is my daughter's first visit. We love this place. Dr. Sonia is amazing and her staffs are very nice. Highly recommend!
So happy with everything about this office. The front office was super patient (as I had several insurance issues) and they talked me through all of the additional costs and gave me treatment options once those insurance issues were resolved. Dr. Sonya is kind and gentle and fast - which is perfect for a kids' dentist. The space is recently renovated and very clean - as well as being up to date with the latest technology. My 4 year old has to have several cavities filled and he didn't flinch when she used "the wand" to administer the anesthesia with our first treatment today. Would highly recommend her to anyone. Big plus: video screens at every station/room.
