We exclusively treat children and are passionate about making the dental office an amazing experience for both kiddos and parents! A positive dental experience from a young age paves the way for a healthy mouth and body as an adult, which is why we recommend the first dental visit after the first tooth grows in or by age one.
Most pediatric dentists graduate among the top of their dental school class to have the privilege of receiving an additional two to three years of pediatric-based residency training. Dr. Higgins received a combined three additional years of training at Denver Health Medical Center and Children’s Hospital Colorado. He is honored to teach future pediatric dentists as an adjunct faculty at Children’s Hospital Colorado Pediatric Dental Residency Program. Dr. Higgins also voluntarily completed a rigorous board certification process by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Board certification helps ensure only the highest quality of oral care is provided to patients. Because board certification is difficult, time-consuming, stressful, and expensive not all pediatric dentists are board-certified; however, Dr. Higgins recommends seeing only board-certified pediatric dentists because they have shown a commitment to excellence and lifelong learning.
Dr. Higgins grew up in the Valley and knows the value of seeing the same provider over long periods of time. Mountain Valley Kids Dental is a single office owned and operated by Dr. Higgins, which ensures only the highest quality care is provided. Other offices will often delegate certain dental procedures to dental assistants, but Dr. Blake places all restorative materials himself to the ensure the quality your child deserves. Parents are welcomed in the treatment areas to witness first hand our exceptional care. We look forward to being part of the community for decades to come!
Every aspect of our office is tailored towards young patients. Our caring team members are remarkably adept at relieving any anxiousness. Besides the kid friendly décor, our office utilizes the smallest lowest radiation digital X-ray sensors, fun toothpaste flavors, TV’s in the ceiling, prizes, as well as state-of-the art but proven dental instruments and materials. We encourage you to join our family at Mountain Valley Kids Dental where your child will receive the highest standard of clinical and emotional care.
