I had a great experience here! The staff are very kind and friendly. The Dentist himself is wonderful. He genuinely cares about how his patients feel and look after having any work done. I recommend Smiles Dental to everyone looking for a dentist.
There’s nothing I dread more than the dentist but Dr. Katib makes the experience stress and pain free! The office is great too.
Friday’s after doing all the testing both at Smile Dental and at his office (Summer Dental Office) in Haverhill. He informed me that he could do it but it would not last because of bone loss and referred me to another specialist. This is what I call a true doctor.

Young children are cavity-prone, even with good brushing habits! That’s why we repair teeth and restore smiles using both silver and tooth-colored dental fillings.
Dental sealants can help keep your child’s teeth cavity-free by protecting them against bacteria.
Regular fluoride applications during your child’s checkups can strengthen their enamel and prevent tooth decay.
We use natural-looking porcelain crowns to restore healthy smiles.
If your child has a severe toothache, broken tooth, or other emergency condition, call our office right away!
Protect your child’s smile with our comfortable, custom-fitted mouth guards!
Your child’s first tooth will come in at around six months of age, so it’s important to take them to their first dental visit as soon as you notice it. While you should take your child to the dentist by their first birthday, an early start can help set your child up for good oral health and happy smiles.
You can expect to take your child to the dentist for a checkup at least twice a year, or as recommended by your child’s dentist. Regular checkups are essential to maintaining good oral health and wellness, and your little one is no different! Attending regularly scheduled dental visits every six months can help your child's dentist prevent cavities, monitor the development of their teeth and jaws, and keep their smile bright for many years to come.
