I am very happy with my new veneers that help my smile look more cohesive. I’m only 12, but even I know how important your smile needs to be to feel good about yourself. Dr. Dave and Beth were so nice to me and they made sure I knew what to expect because I’d never had nitrous before. So, yea it was great, thanks! 😁

I brought my 2 yr old in for his first dental visit and everyone was so sweet and amazing even as he was screaming bloody murder the whole time. Dr. Aste saw him and said he had 2 cavities and was going to need a fill and crown and be put under which made me nervous. They were able to accommodate me at the office for his procedure within a week of our first visit and Dr. Dave and the anesthesiologist talking to me about the procedure and being put under really put me at ease. Highly recommend this place I'm so so happy I found them for my little guys first dental experience!!!

SLPDentistry makes me wish I was a kid again just so I could love dental care the way my son does now. This dental office provides a fun environment for children and they are so, so good with kids. (I know–whoever thought 'fun' and 'dental' would be used in the same sentence! Lol.)In all seriousness, the staff is incredible here. Dr. Aste is delightful. She is kind, attentive, skilled, and most of all: my son likes her. They're thorough in their communications, utilizing the best new dental techniques, and I cannot rave enough about how much my son loves this place. They've made it a memorable experience for him with the wonderful treatment they provide (and I'm sure the prizes he gets for being a great patient play a part in this as well).100% recommend bringing your child here–they're gonna love it!

Love the dentists and staff! Dr. Dave is awesome but they are all good. My daughter saw a pediatric dentist in Atlanta since she was a baby (she’s 13 now) so changing dentists was a big deal. We were not disappointed!

I love everything about this dentist office. The Drs (specifically Dr Dave), the cleanliness, the dental assistants/hygienist, the location, even the ortho office on the first floor who lets my son go in and play basketball whenever we go, everything is amazing. Everyone is nice, and it is comfortable, my kids “like going to the dentist.” If I could improve one thing it would be to not have to update the lengthy medical history form every time I take my kids (every 6 months)
Ashley S.
01:32 11 Aug 20
We had a wonderful experience with Dr. Aste at the Cottonwood Heights location. It was our first visit with my 11-month-old and she was so gentle and caring -- she made his first check up and cleaning just so easy. Will definitely be back as a regular patient now!

Dr. Aste is INCREDIBLE! So knowledgeable and professional, but also very warm and kind with her patients, and happy to take time with you to fully explain procedures and help you feel good about the decisions you make in your child’s dental care. Could not speak more highly of her. Came here after my daughter had a traumatic dental experience elsewhere and I was worried she would never adjust. Now she loves to go to the dentist to see her friend, Dr. Aste!

My daughter is very nervous of anyone looking in her mouth. The last dentist we saw couldn’t even get an X-ray on her. The staff at SL ped dentist were amazing. She left feeling confident about her teeth (even though her teeth are going to need orthodontist work in the future)! So happy we finally found this dentist. I only wish they saw adults!

04:33 10 May 20
Growing up, I was very fearful of the dentist and always dreaded going. From the smell to the sounds, the whole experience was terrifying. Because of this, I want my children to have the best possible experience and have made sure to find the best pediatric dentist in the valley! Dr. Rupp and his fellow associates are absolutely the friendliest and most professional dentists who think about every last detail to make a positive experience for the whole family! My kids enjoy going to the dentist, even when they have cavities, because the entire staff pays attention to all the details and makes sure every kid is comfortable and happy. It feels clean and pleasant from the moment you walk in, with no weird dentist office smells! It feels new and the interior design is spot on! We’ve been to several other pediatric dentists and Salt Lake Pediatric Dentistry is by far my favorite! Highly recommend!!!

15:53 20 Feb 20
The Denist are Amazing!! They explained everything and made us feel so comfortable. They even cared enough to call and check on my little one to see how she was doing after her appointment. They definitely deserve more then 5 stars. I would definatly recommend this place to everyone who has children.
Kelli D.
03:49 12 Feb 20
We enjoyed our experience with Dr Dave and the rest of the staff at Salt Lake Pediatric Dentistry! They were so helpful and friendly in treating our son who had a broken front tooth. It was hard to have a young child do any sort of dental treatment beyond routine cleanings but they made great recommendations that we trusted and felt good about. We are very happy with the outcome.

Everyone is so very friendly and kind to my kids! We never wait longer than a few minutes. They make special arrangements for our medically fragile daughter. I can’t recommend them highly enough!!
19:18 07 Nov 19
We had a great experience! My son was having a difficult time wanting to be there and made it known. He didn’t want to do the x rays and they were so patient and eventually got him to cooperate and by that point he was trusting of them and ready for his cleaning. Which he loved!! He was so excited about the dentist that as we were walking out he said he wanted to come back! Highly recommend!
Ariel P.
02:21 06 Nov 19
I wish I had a place like this when I was a kid. They have all the proper distractions to keep kids from focusing on getting dental work done. We had a recommendation to go here from another office due to their ability to preform sedated procedures. I was extremely nervous that our son needed to be put under general anesthesia for some work done but they did it very smoothly and our son did not even know he was given a shot. He had everything he needed done in one visit and I am extremely thankful. Keep up the good work.

A beautiful space and super friendly staff go a long way for a dentist office, and this office has both in spades. This team passes the true test and true success of a pediatric dentist office: my kids love going to the dentist now, they beg me to go back, remind me to schedule cleanings and look forward with excitement to visits. This place is great! Highly recommend it!
Arves S.
20:11 13 Sep 19
I have been going to this dentist since I was 6 ( I'm 12 now) and it's the best dentist any kid could ever ask for. You guys are awesome
12:48 11 Sep 19
Both my sons have had cleanings, X-rays, and fillings at Salt Lake Pediatric Dentistry. Every hygienist and staff member we have come in contact with has been great with them. The dentist were all very kind and answered all my questions and were great with my kids!
Ashlynne A.
19:41 09 Sep 19
We love everything about the office. The staff is always friendly but the best thing is Dr. Dave - my kids used to hate going to the dentist and now they ask when they get to go see Dr. Dave.
Brenda F.
14:40 09 Sep 19
Their new office is stunning! Absolutely beautiful! The staff are phenomenal as well. My son started seeing these folks at 1 year old and has never one time been afraid or forced to do something that made him cry- hes 3 now. The dental assistants and hygienists are all so kind and friendly. The dentists (we've seen multiple) have all been kind, informative (1st time mom), supportive and caring towards my son. I recommend ALL my friends to these guys, for your daily dental care to more advanced needs. They do a wonderful job with it all!

I’m so glad this office was recommended to me! My kids had a great experience with getting their teeth cleaned. My 3 year-old needed to have 2 cavities filled and her frenulum clipped. Dr Rupp did a fantastic job with both!! I will be telling everyone I know to take their kids to this office.
Kalie D.
22:54 30 Jul 19
We absolutely love bringing our kids here! They are friendly from the moment you make the appointment until you leave. I thought the hygienist and the dentist were extremely thorough and it was not loud, which tends to scare my children. I loved how my kids were entertained and at ease for the entire appointment. My 3 year old asks to go back often! She had fun!

Review from my 9 year old son, Alex (he has had to have multiple teeth pulled, no cavity experience, but 7 years of teeth cleaning here): “One of the best dentists I’ve ever been to! Everyone is so nice. They have a lot to do and that helps me be distracted. They do everything super well. They make me feel calm and welcomed. I don’t feel terrified. They let you have options and it’s entertaining. The options take my mind off of things that bother me. They are so welcoming. Even though I get scared when I have to get teeth pulled, everything is so calm and peaceful. I really like coming here.”Mom’s opinion: The staff is so kind! They are able to help my kids actually enjoy coming here! My kids are disappointed when we only come twice a year. They take the time to explain procedures and recommendations. They listen to and address my concerns and questions. They also have worked so well with our Orthodontist and coordinating care.

Salt Lake Pediatric Dentists are so great that my kids actually love going to the dentist. Dr. Dave and the whole staff put my kids at ease and make the process painless - even my 4yo has no hesitation of hopping up on the chair to get his teeth cleaned. Highly recommend.
Jill L.
22:21 17 Jul 19
My daughter had a great experience while having a deep cavity cleaned and an enamel crown put on. Dr. Rupp explained to her what was going on each step of the way so she was not nervous. He was also a good listener, courteous, and incorporated my input as we discussed the options of the treatment plan. Pricing was also very reasonable. Would absolutely recommend.

LOVE this Dental office. Their new location is amazing. I love the decor, and the clean, organized and modern feeing of the whole office. So beautifully designed. My kids love every dentist they have seen with this practice. This new office has a great staff who are so attentive to my kids needs. They are definitely a pediatric office and know how to help my kiddos get past theirs fears or nerves of going to the dentist. My kiddos look forward to going to the dentist and insist on brushing AND flossing daily. Win win for me. We won’t go to any other dental office.

We moved here about a year ago and were looking for a new pediatric dentist. My son has celiac disease, so he has to avoid ingesting gluten, including certain toothpastes and other dental products. His gastroenterologist suggested we look up Salt Lake Pediatric Dentistry. We were happy to find out that they have gluten free products. Even better, the staff is so nice to check their materials each time we have an appointment just in case something has changed. My kids love it there and enjoy going to the dentist.

My kids love the dentist! Everyone at this office is wonderful and accommodating. My favorite part is that they can see all four of my boys in one visit. This new location has made taking them to the dentist so much more convenient!

My pediatrician referred me here, but we’ve continued coming here because of the excellent service. Everything about them is geared towards an incredible experience for kids whether it be a standard checkup or cavity. They really are the best!

We have been seeing the dentists in this practice for over 3 years now. They are all wonderful, patient, and supportive of all needs. The hygienists are great also, they put the kids at easy from the moment they are called back and help parents understand every step of the appointment.

My little boys is autistic and gets anxious every time he has to go to the dentist. They have always done an amazing job comforting and helping us ensure a great visit. My daughter loves (yep no kidding) going to Dr. Aste bc she’s so fun and personable

Took my daughter here for her first dental visit. Dr. Dave G. was very patient, gentle, and kind with her. My daughter got really nervous and started crying. I held her and her hands while Dr. Dave peeked in her mouth. Once they applied the fluoride she stopped crying, and became relaxed. I would highly recommend. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and the hygienist was also very friendly and patient.

I’ve been to a lot of dentists which has brought to me the fear of a dental seat. After visiting SLPD & Dr. Dave that fear no longer exists. The staff made me feel comfortable & welcomed & after having two cavities filled I left pain free. I highly recommend SLPD to anyone who has children like me that have feared dental work.

We started bringing our daughter when she was about two and a half. We noticed she had a huge cavity in her molar and we had been referred to Salt Lake Pediatric dentistry by our dentist Dr. Bye at City Creek Dental.We have a son now and he also comes here. We've worked with both dentists and they are both fabulous!

I’ve been going here for years for routine cleanings and always loved the staff and the quality of the work, but when my daughters needed a small oral surgery I was floored by how thoughtful, kind, efficient, and professional SL Pediatric Dentistry was. I HIGHLY recommend them!

Salt Lake Pediatric Dentistry in Cottonwood Heights has been amazing for my children. The dental assistants, and dentists are very patient and compassionate. We drive across the valley to continue our dental care at Salt Lake Pediatric Dentistry. The office staff is amazing as well. Hands down the best dental experience my kids have had, as we previously went to a different dental office before we moved here. Overall a great dental experience for our family.

My kids love going here! They are actually excited! I love it because they get all four of my kids in and out quickly. I never feel oversold on dental work we don't need. I'm always skeptical of dentists, but they have earned my trust.

Truly exemplary. Our children have a history of struggling with pediatric dentists, including fear, anxiety, and resisting treatment. There was none of that here. We've seen both Dr. Gustafson and Dr. Rupp and it was like night and day when compared to our experiences with other dentists. These dentists and their staff are all uniquely adept at dealing with children and have clearly found their professional calling. We'll be clients until the 18th birthday of every child now. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Both of my kids have had extensive work done by Dr. Dave and Dr. Rupp and they were amazing!

This dentist office is out of this world! My girls were super scared to go to the dentist but honestly all the dentists were so friendly and warm it seemed like we were family! They never rush us and always make sure my kids are comfortable and happy. Plus the coin they give at the end is a great way to get my kids excited! We won’t be going anywhere else!

I paid for 3 unsuccessful tooth extractions at two different dentist offices because none of the dentists we went to had the soft skills, patience and charisma like Dr. Rupp and his wonderful team of caring and genuinely friendly people to manage to get my son, who is extremely anxious, to get his tooth out. If you have a child like mine, or in the autism spectrum, I highly recommend Dr. Rupp and his team. Wonderful people!

We've been coming to Dr Rupp for years and we wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. He is so attentive and kind to my children putting their fears at ease in an instant. He has gone above and beyond when we've had emergencies. The staff is equally amazing and helpful. You can tell they love where they work. We love this place!

This place is amazing! We've been to both the Holladay and the Cottonwood Heights locations with both boys. Clean waiting room with playroom and movies playing. Never have had to wait for more than a few minutes. Front desk, hygienists and dentists are all very warm and welcoming and excellent with children. Moved from Seattle a few years ago and the first Pediatric dentist experience at another provider wasn't the greatest so we made the switch to Salt Lake Pediatric and so happy we did.

Salt Lake Pediatric Dentistry is like an angel dressed up like a dentist office. They give out prizes, have cool movies playing in all the chairs, and have been especially helpful/accommodating with my 8-yr old son on the autism spectrum. Five out of five stars.

Took my 4 kids to Dr Dave today. They have been going to him since they were little and get really excited to go every time! My 5 year old kept asking when it was his turn to get his teeth cleaned because he loves watching the movie with his cool sunglasses they give him to help with the lights! Dr Dave knows his stuff! He explains each child’s exam throughly and answers all of my questions. They are so accommodating to me, all my kids and very understanding with my busy 20mo old. The staff is so friendly and easy to work with! Highly recommend Salt Lake Pediatric Dentistry!

Everyone was amazing! Our daughter has had some health issues that other dentists and medical professionals could not figure out until we went here and it was diagnosed as dental. The anesthesiologists was very nice and helped our daughter overcome her fears. The dentist was very friendly, informative, and did a great job. They took very good care of daughter. The entire office was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. Thank you so much!!
