Business overview

Dr. Michelle Stafford and Dr. Michelle Kurkowski work together to ensure that your child has a positive experience in a caring environment. Both Dr. Stafford and Dr. Kurkowski enjoy teaching families and other healthcare professionals the importance of prevention and laying a foundation of healthy dental practices from a young age. Not only does our doctor team advocate for infant oral health and have extensive experience with patients of special needs, but both doctors are Board Certified.. Pediatric Dentists.
A Board Certified Pediatric Dentist, or Diplomate, is a dentist that demonstrates an exceptional knowledge and expertise at a standard not possessed by other dentists. During the certification process a written examination followed by an oral examination with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry is completed that determines the proficiency of pediatric dentists. Only about 47% of practicing pediatric dentists are board certified. Both Dr. Stafford and Dr. Kurkowski proudly practice as Diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
We invite you to come and take a tour of our World of Smiles, from seeing the staff dressed up for one of our weekly dress-up days, to our comfy toddler room and colorful toy wall!

Great for our kids!, 11/01/2011

Our kids - both under 5 - were pretty nevous about going to the dentist for the first time, but the staff at World of Smiles made them very comfortable. They were never pushed and they were even made... to feel proud of getting through their appointments - the prizes didn't hurt either. Dr. Stafford answered all of my questions. I was disappointed that our younger one had some "sugar bugs", but they helped us understand the treatment so I am sure they will get get her fixed up! The waiting room is really fun - kids LOVED the turtles!
