Dr. Stump and the entire team at Charlottesville Pediatric Dentistry have provided my children with wonderful experiences. The environment is fun and welcoming and the highest standards of patient (and parent) care is exhibited. I recommend this dentistry to anyone without hesitation.
My son has special needs and they are so considerate and gentle. They accommodate his needs and make us feel at ease. We love our Dentist!!!!
Dr. Stump and his staff are fantastic. My daughter loves going there. Everyone in the office is very professional and Dr. Stump really works with you as a parent to meet the needs of your child. We've even had dental emergencies, and Dr. Stump has always answered his phone (once while on his family vacation) just to help us on the weekends. He is fabulous and I highly recommend this practice to everyone I know.
When your 4yo leaves and says he can't wait to go back, you know it was a good experience! We had less than a 2 minute wait in the waiting room, the dental assistants were incredibly friendly and energetic. My little one with sensory processing disorder, didn't fuss at all. The dental assistant working on him unabashedly sang a song during his entire cleaning.
Dr. Stump was courteous, answered all of my concerns, and was gentle as he checked my boys' teeth.
We don't live near this practice, but I make the drive and wouldn't go anywhere else!
The staff is so friendly and polite, they get my 4 children seen quickly and always ask if we have any questions and provide detailed responses. Dr. Stump always takes the time to meet with me at the end and address any issues or concerns I may have with the children's teeth. We are extremely happy repeat customers!! Thank you!
Excellent dental care!
Friendly, compassionate, knowledgeable and you never have to wait for your appointment. Thanks for taking such good care of my children.
The assistants and Dr's here are always very efficient with their treatment plans and letting us know what should be our priority. Dr. Stump is also very good about including my son in our discussions about his teeth; making sure to explain what is wrong and how we are going to fix it. Which I believe helps ease some of my sons anxiety about the procedures. We are never waiting very long once we arrive. They are also efficient when scheduling new appointments. My son always has a great experience and actually enjoys going to the dentist!
Everyone is friendly, calm and thorough. As a parent, I appreciate Dr. Stump coming out to talk to me after my children's exams and give me a report on their check ups. My kids always leave his office happy. Thank you for making going to the dentist a pleasure!
5 Stars! (Mother of 1 boy)
They are the GREATEST!!! (Mother of 3)
These people are the greatest. They essentially closed the office to see my 3 kids at the same time today because my autistic child has such a hard time having her teeth cleaned. They really get Autism - special hours , trained staff, desensitization work, etc. The techs and office staff are so lovely. I would recommend this practice to anyone. We've seen both Dr. Stump and Dr. Dixon - great.
I couldn't be happier(Mother of 2)
A friend recommended Dr. Dixon's office to me over three years ago when we were in search of a dentist for our toddler. I have consistently been impressed with the care, patience, and education provided to our family. Initially, our daughter was not the easiest patient. However, the dental assistant (who we love and request regularly) would sing her silly songs while cleaning her teeth completely distracting her from what was really happening. I always feel as if we are a priority with Dr. Dixon. She is thorough in answering all of my questions, she takes time with our daughter, even using funny dolls to teach proper cleaning techniques. I couldn't be happier with this practice. When we were leaving today my daughter eagerly asked "When do I get to go back?"
Highly recommended (Mother of 1 boy)
Dr. Stump is a great doctor, very caring for his young patients. I highly recommend him!
Very Thorough and Thoughtful(Mother of 2)
Cannot say enough about the amazing staff at Charlottesville Pediatric Dentistry. They are kind, gentle, and truly make the visits for my 2 and 4 year old a fun experience. We've been seen by both Dr. Dixon and Dr. Stump and they are both thorough and thoughtful in their exam and discussion about dental care in our home. Thanks for providing a safe, friendly, professional environment for my children to start their lifelong dental hygiene habits!
We could not be more impressed!! (Mother of 3)
I do not think it would be possible for me to more highly recommend this practice for pediatric dental care. My three children (all under age 6) are patients of Dr. Stump and we could not be more impressed by the quality of care and attention to detail from him and his entire staff. Our initial visits were because one of our children required extensive dental care. We had originally been recommended to another pediatric practice in town, but were unable to have the work completed successfully after multiple attempts. We were not happy and decided to look for another practice. Many sources directed us to Ch'ville Pediatric Dentistry and we haven't looked back. Dr. Stump and his staff were very patient and understanding through the entire length of the procedures. All options were explained and questions were always answered fully before any work was done. In addition, we have been continually impressed at how this practice is geared 100% towards the needs and attention span of children (as it should be). There are many games and activities in the waiting room to occupy your child while you wait, yet everything always looks very clean. Once you're taken back, the hygienists and dentists do everything (including singing and reciting children's movies) to keep your child happily distracted during the exam. All in all, I could give no higher recommendation for a pediatric dental practice!
Such a happy place! (Mother of 3)
We love Dr. Dixon and Dr. Stump! They are wonderful with our kids. We started going when they first opened, and have been so happy with the service they give our children. All the staff and hygienists are so good with the children - it is such a happy place and the children can sense it. My kids are at ease going there and actually look forward to their visits. I trust all the dentists and hygienists completely - they take great care of my children!
Happy Children…Happy Mommy (Mother of 3 boys)
I have three little boys and we just had another fantastic visit with Dr. Dixon. After a terrible experience elsewhere with my 1st child, I found Dr. Dixon's practice and I immediately felt like the heavens had opened up. She was and still is everything I could ask for: compassionate, a great listener understands the mother's point of view, low intervention and of course, knows her trade inside and out. Besides Dr. Dixon, the staff is very warm and good with children as well. They have the best prizes and ways of keeping the children happy during their visit. My kids can't wait to go back. I'm not kidding. And my 18 month old is so ready to sit in one of those bright-colored chairs and wear the cool shades! Thanks everyone at CvillePeDO, see you in 6 months.
Wonderful Dentist…Amazing Dental Care (Mother of 3 boys)
Dr. Jennifer Dixon is an amazing pediatric dentist! I could not ask for more for my three young children. Our first experience with Dr. Dixon was when my oldest was two and he chipped his front tooth (about 1/3 of the total tooth) on a swimming pool. Dr. Dixon fixed his front tooth. She was warm, caring and thorough. She has video screens to keep the kids distracted and even sings to them when she brushes their teeth! When our oldest expressed some anxiety about his visit, she personally cared for him. Her office staff is equally kind and caring and her office environment is quiet, calm and very child friendly. Honestly, sometimes getting children to cooperate in the chair (as in life) means being firm, but I have never heard her (with my kids or others), be mean or unkind. In the four years we have worked with her we have never had anything but a superior experience. Our boys truly love her! If you haven't seen her yet, I would highly recommend checking out the practice!
Love That Dentist (Mother of 3)
Dr. Dixon is the best dentist I have ever dealt with. I am a mother of three with ages ranging from 5 to 26. I have been taking children to the dentist for a long time. Dr. Dixon has been treating our daughter for a year and a half. She has done every thing from extensive surgery to a cleaning. She and her staff are very calm, gentle; loving well informed and has a great sense of humor. When we first started going to Dr. Dixon my daughter was just terrified, she would start to shriek and wail the minute we drove up. Dr. Dixon has made my daughter so comfortable that she now says “I want to be a dentist when I grow up” One of the best things about Dr. Dixon is that she takes in to account that every child is different and has different needs. I would recommend her and commend her for being a wonderful dentist. If only she would work on grown ups.
Outstanding in Every Respect! (Mother of 2)
I am a mother of two and a physician, myself. Both my 2 and 4 year-olds have been to see Dr. Dixon on several occasions. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this doctor. Clinically, she is the most talented dentist that I have come in contact with. Personally, she is a positive, fun, and energetic woman who exudes warmth and has a great talent with children. She sings as she examines them; tells jokes as she cleans teeth; and her office is a dream for children--fish tanks, developmental toys, television. The office is clean, modern, and clearly about making the patients feel comfortable. The entire staff was genuine, welcoming, and well-run. I have been overjoyed with our care and recommend Dr. Dixon to every person I know with children. All of my physician friends take their children to her and have been equally thrilled with her care and services.
The Greatest Dentist for your children! (Father of 1 girl)
Dr Dixon is the best! My daughter has a slight aversion when it comes to going to the dentist, to put it mildly :) This is my daughters 4th dentist and we will follow Dr Dixon to the ends of the earth to keep her as our dentist. Every visit Dr Dixon worked a little more to gain my daughters trust, now after a year of this my daughter is actually comfortable (no exaggeration) going to and being at the dentist. I would HIGHLY recommend to any one who is looking for an honest, patient, and gentle dentist for their child. A+++++++++++++++++
Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful!!! (Mother of 1 girl)
I can not say enough good things about this practice. Dr. Dixon is truly an extraordinary person. She came to us highly recommended. I consider myself an overly protective parent and despite that fact Dr. Dixon has earned my trust 100%. My little girl actually looks forward to the days she gets to see Dr. Dixon and her staff. She has seen my little girl for years now with out my little girl ever shedding the first tear. This is a great place to take your little one for their first visit. I bet you too will be hooked.
Best Pediatric Dentist in Town (Mother of 2 boys)
Dr. Dixon and her staff are wonderful!!! My children love coming to see her, and are so excited to get their teeth brushed. This comes as a surprise to me, because they used to not enjoy going to the dentist. Ever since meeting Dr. Dixon, they brush and floss every night. Amazing! She is such a caring and compassionate woman. She sings songs and tells stories to my children while they are in the dental chair. My kids love her aquarium. In summary, we feel so blessed to have her in our community. We will continue to go to her, even if we move away!!!
The Best Pediatric Dentist in Town (Mother of 2 girls)
My children absolutely LOVE going to see Dr. Dixon and her staff. They enjoy the experience and have no fear of going to the dentist. The staff is so inviting, friendly and helpful. Dr. Dixon actually filled a tooth on my youngest without her even knowing that she had been numbed!!!!!!! It takes special people to work with children and I feel that Dr.Dixon and her staff are the best in Charlottesville and the surrounding area.
