    Dr. Eric Downey and his staff at Behind the Smile Dentistry for Children recently received a 100 percent satisfaction rating on their CitySearch.com profile, making them one of the top ranked children’s dentists in Beaverton, OR. Dr. Downey and his staff are recognized for creating an enjoyable dental experience for children, helping them establish healthy habits for oral health.

    According to the Dental Fears Research Clinic, approximately 7 percent of Americans avoid visiting the dentist out of fear. This can especially be the case with children who experience anxiety about unfamiliar settings, sound, and potential pain.

    “As dentists, we understand how important it is to emphasize oral health from a young age, but also know that one negative experience at the dentist can affect a child for years to come,” said Dr. Eric Downey, general pediatric dentist in Beaverton, OR. “My staff and I really appreciate receiving these top ratings because it shows that our commitment to our patients having a positive experience isn’t going unnoticed.”

    At Behind the Smile, Dr. Downey works alongside two other qualified dentists, Dr. Carolyn Muckerheide who is also his wife, and Dr. Ashley Schaaf. Reviews of the Behind the Smile Dentistry for Children team by parents show that their children’s positive experiences have had an impact on how they view dental care.

    “Our eldest son was very scared about going to the dentist for the first time, but his first visit to Behind the Smile Dentistry for Children was a huge success,” said Elsa Clements. “The staff is warm and welcoming and they have books, games, and a great video machine in the lobby. Now instead of being afraid, my son actually looks forward to visiting the dentist.”

    Shannon Duffy said, “My daughter has had great experience each time when seeing Dr. Downey. The staff is so welcoming, nice and caring to each patient and their family. She can’t wait to go back each time which makes me happy, because no parent wants to take their children somewhere that scares them.”

    Together with his staff, Dr. Downey provides a variety of pediatric dental and restorative treatments in Beaverton, OR. To assist parents with children who have immediate dental concerns, he is also an emergency dentist in Beaverton, OR.

    Dr. Downey has been practicing dentistry for nearly 15 years. He completed his DDS degree at University of Iowa, and subsequently completed a pediatric dental residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. He has been the president of the Oregon Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and a trustee for the Western Society of Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Downey is board certified.
