Pediatric Dentistry & Braces for Children & Teens


5-Star-Rated Pediatric Dental Office

Since 2001, Dr. Frank C Pettinato II, DMD, MS, has been caring for children and transforming their smiles. Over these many years, we have received numerous reviews praising our friendly atmosphere and state-of-the-art dental treatments. Take a look at what our patients have to say about their experiences at our North Port, FL, dental office.

This practice is wonderful! Dr. P and his staff are great with kids, we went in for our initial visit Monday and had treatment that following Friday! This was my daughters first time having any dental work, 1 - she was not scared at all to go back (she is usually scared of her own shadow) they made her feel so comfortable! And 2 - when she was finished, I asked her how she felt about it and she said “It didn’t hurt at all, it was really no big deal” (she had a crown and filling done.) According to her, they didn’t even have to give her a “shot.” I know they did, so that just tells me how great they are, she had no idea! I would recommend cool kid dental to anyone with kiddos!

Today was the first time there and we had a great experience. The dentist and staff were friendly and knowledgeable. I loved how they explained everything and made the kids feel comfortable. I will definitely go there again!

— Dawn Dandrea

One of the best dentists I've been to. Dr. Frank was beyond amazing with our eight-year-old, talking through everything that he did and even singing! The staff was just as good! They make sure to make you comfortable and give excellent care. Would highly recommend.

This place is amazing. Other dentists wanted to sedate my daughter due to autisum and they were so patient and great with her. From the front office staff to the assistants to the dentist, 5 stars across the board. Highly recommend!

This is the most amazing pediatric dentist we have ever been to. Due to bad experiences at a previous pediatric dentist, my eight-year-old developed high anxiety about going the dentist. She was having some issues and I ended up calling this office. Best decision. From the first call, talking to Erin and Brent, they were so pleasant and accommodating with getting us in the same day. The dental assistant, Brittany, was so warm and caring with my child. Took her time to explain everything, let my child touch everything, let her have an anxiety attack, and talked her back down. Then Dr Frank made my child smile, laugh, and feel comfortable. Four days later, my child had a small tooth emergency, they fit her in within the hour. Ya'll, they got her to use the gas instead of anesthesia. Miracles. She was in and out within a half hour. Happy child, thrilled mom. Can't say enough! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

This was my daughter's first experience at the dentist and they made her feel so comfortable and she really enjoyed the visit. I had my niece with me and they involved her in everything as well. She wants to me to tell her Mom about Cool Kid Dental for her next dental visit.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about this brand new dentist that just opened five days ago! I called them this morning to make an appointment for my son to get a cleaning before his braces get put on next week and they got us in the same day! They are very personable and friendly. They informed us about everything they were doing and even let us stand over them to see how things were done. Any questions I had, they answered. They even do braces there, which I am sad about because we already started with a different Orthodontist. But that's okay, they have our business from this point on for everything else! Another plus is that they are local! From the atmosphere to all the staff, it is simply perfect. No one likes the dentist, so they definitely ease your mind from the moment you walk in the door.

If you are looking for a dentist for your kids, this is the place. Very knowledgeable, friendly, efficient, and fair pricing. They try very hard to help your kids have as good an experience as possible.

— Andrew Mcneil

I have just recently moved to North Port and picked Dr. Frank to take my daughter to, and what a great experience and great staff. They were very friendly, professional, and their hours work great for getting out of work at 5pm. Dr. Frank, Britney, and Brent were great. Thank you, Catherine.

Great experience! My kids loved their visit today. Everyone there was very nice and professional, from check in to their exams. My two-year-old wasn't afraid at all and my four-year-old wanted to stay and "work" there with the staff (haha). We look forward to our future visits!

— Crissy Lauffer

This is absolutely the very best dentist to take your child to. They were wonderful and treated my granddaughter fabulously. She loves going to Dr Pettinato  and I recommend them to everyone. Very very pleased and happy to go there. — Woodstock7357.
