The Smile Surfers Philosophy

As pediatric dentists in Sumner and Richland, it’s our number one goal to inspire your little surfers to love their smiles while living a healthy, happy life.

What Sets Smile Surfers Apart?

We ♥️ kids, making it our goal to provide the best care anywhere!

Fun Environment

Nothing is more important to us than seeing your little surfer smile! Our pediatric dentists are wonderful with children, getting down at their level and taking the time to address their concerns.


Setting an example and having open communication will set your child up for success. Our Surf Instructors will educate you and your child on the importance of oral health and provide tips to prevent small issues from becoming bigger, painful problems.

Oral and overall health come in full circle, and we all know healthy kids are happy kids. This means we’ll encourage your little surfer to make healthy decisions in terms of diet, exercise, hygiene, sleep, and so much more. This will guide the child into a life filled with healthy decisions.

Here For You
Here For You

Every child is unique. In turn, we develop personalized treatment plans, take our time with your child’s level of treatment, and work with you to ensure your little surfers receive high-quality treatment.

Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

Our dentists have received specialized training and techniques to treat children.

The difference between a pediatric dentist and general dentist is simple: We’ve received 2-3 years of extra schooling after dental school to specialize in treating children’s oral health.

This additional training allows us to treat children from ages 1-18 from all backgrounds and needs.

  • Our Smile Surfer dentists in Sumner, Richland, and Kennewick are pediatric dentists.
  • We’re able to treat infants, children, adolescents, even those with special needs.
  • They’re trained in understanding the growth development of children’s skeletal and dental structures.
  • They’re trained to understand the comprehensive nature of your child’s oral and overall health, allowing us to provide you (the parent) tips on diet, exercise, sleep, and so much more.

We took our daughter to her first dentist appointment ever yesterday, and we chose Smile Surfers because of its high ratings on Google. We were very impressed and are super excited to have found a place that our daughter loves to go to. She already wants to go back! Great office. Dr. Jared was awesome with the kids, and our dental assistant was great as well.

I have been taking my daughter to Smile Surfers for four years. The knowledge, customer service and ability to ease the anxiety of children is amazing. Jeannette and Dr. Collette have been so great with my daughter. I highly recommend them for infants to older children!!!!
