Our Core Values
The dental industry is all about teeth, right? Wrong! At least not at Smile Shoppe Pediatric Dentistry. We focus on the whole patient and not simply the teeth. Since we know we are working with the future leaders and difference-makers of the world, we have made it our mission to inspire the next generation of confident smiles. We have identified six core values to help us achieve our mission every day. Our Core Values are exemplified each day in the four walls of our offices, and also in our communities away from our workplace.

Core Value: Patient's Needs First
Our patients come first. We are willing and ready to adapt to whatever a patient might need to instill them with confidence. We see past the mouth and treat each patient’s whole-self. When a child is overly anxious or frightened in our office, we consider all the possibilities.
Whether this is wearing a red razorback nose to mimic the “piggy nose” during operative treatment or singing silly songs while we clean their teeth, we pull out all the stops for our kids! Our team is dedicated to figuring out how to treat every patient with the compassion and respect they deserve.

Core Value: Integrity
Integrity is defined as being honest and having strong moral principles. Some people might define integrity as doing the right thing when others are not watching. Whether we are in the shadows or in the spotlight, our commitment to do the right thing never wavers.
We like to say we run on kid time. Integrity in all situations might mean we have to give a little more TLC to our nervous patients. While it might be easier to force a child through a procedure, we are committed to doing the work of talking a patient through what they are experiencing, allowing them to leave our office more confident than when they arrived.

Core Value: We Have An Honest And Authentic Team
We recognize the importance of a strong team. When we are strong, our patients are strong. When we are lead well, we are then able to lead well. It is our goal as a team to improve each person individually and personally. As iron sharpens iron, we want to be a team that sharpens each other. Why does this matter to our patients? When we succeed in improving our team, we succeed in serving our patients. We are able to accomplish so much more when we work together as a team than as individuals.

Core Value: We Approach Every Day With A Positive Attitude
We approach every day with this mindset because we believe that our optimistic energy can influence a positive reaction in our patients. Through our enthusiasm, we hope to create an environment that makes our young patients feel more comfortable and at ease. We understand that many kids come to us nervous or afraid. It is our intention to make the dental office a fun and enjoyable place for kids. Whatever the day may bring we are committed to letting our enthusiasm take center stage.

Core Value: We Laugh Loud, Hard and Often
Why is this a core value? Our office is filled to the brim with patients that make us laugh daily. However, laughter is not simply something we see as a byproduct of working with children. We regard having fun as a way of life and a necessity for inspiring the next generation. There is a company motto that says: Love what you do and do what you love. We know that doing what you love means that you are having fun. If you aren’t having fun, do you really love what you are doing?

Core Value: We Always Bring Our Best
We believe in bringing our best. No matter what industry you are in, excellence is important. Being in the healthcare field, we recognize it is required. We strive to put everything else aside and focus our entire energy on the patient in front of us. For our team, Ȋgood enoughȊ is never good enough. We are always aiming to improve. We want to improve our skill-sets to find superior ways of caring for our patients.
