Really great dental care
for really great kids.

Look forward to taking your kids to the dentist—seriously.


No matter how much you love our pediatric waiting area (hello, gourmet coffee bar!), we honor your time by respecting your schedule and getting you in and out as quickly as possible.


Beyond excellent preventative care, we promise to only recommend treatment your kids actually need. And, since you’re invited to be in the room with them, you’ll always be in the know.

A lot of

We didn’t just slap bright colors on the wall and call it “fun.” Our office is decked out with TVs on the ceilings, a commercial playground, and an iPad station in the waiting room.

Going to the dentist should be easy for kids…

And for their parents.

A trip to the dentist should never be stressful or scary for kids. We want your child to enjoy the dentist and ask to come back, even when they don’t have an appointment. Our team is warm and committed to keeping your kids’ teeth exceptionally clean. And, if anything needs to be fixed along the way, we take care of it gently and get it done right the first time.

We also believe that your child’s visit shouldn’t cause you stress, either. So, you’re always invited to join us for the appointment or take a few minutes for yourself at the coffee bar while we take care of your child. No matter what you choose, we promise to get your family in, freshen up those smiles you love, and get you back on your way. We proudly serve pediatric dental services to Pelham, Hoover, Alabaster and all of Birmingham.

Good news!

We are in-network with most insurance plans and, since no one likes a surprise bill, you’ll always know treatment estimates before we begin.

Your family will make a difference
around the world, too.

Mission work in our community and throughout the world is really important to us. Dr. Baxter travels on mission trips frequently, often teaching dental care practices to pastors to help them serve their communities. And, a significant portion of our practice’s profits go directly to support projects in our local community and abroad.

We celebrate and share this commitment to mission with our patients by decorating each room in the theme of a different continent!

Awesome children’s dentist. Worth the drive. Always quick and very nice. Everything there is done up for kids. Wouldn’t take my 2 boys anywhere else.

Dallas W.

Best medical facility I have ever been to hands down. I am so impressed by the staff and facility. I will never go anywhere else.

Shelby S.

I will always highly recommend this office. Dr. Baxter and his staff are extremely polite, respectful and always put the children first. The environment is beyond any expectations, with complimentary coffee, toy stations, prize machines, and television on the ceiling. Parents are encouraged to be with their child at all times, and everyone is trained to handle nervous children. 

Mariah B.

Amazing first experience with my “spirited” toddler, that otherwise could have been a traumatic experience for us all! The waiting room has everything you need to keep your children happy and busy. Once they called us back, it just kept getting better. They have a flat screen on the ceiling so your child can watch their favorite show. 

Sara H.

I drive 1 1/2 hours to bring my kids here because the staff is great! My son is autistic and I was nervous about how he would handle getting a dental check-up. At our appointment today, Dr. Baxter and his staff were so great and were very patient with my son. I will definitely continue to bring my kids here.
