Meet the Doctors
Welcome to Just4KidzDentistry!
Hi, I am Dr. Celeste and please let me be the first to welcome you to Just4KidzDentistry! We are so excited about the opening of our brand new state of the art Pediatric Dental office here in Southington! Thank you, for taking the time to visit our new website! I am so happy about this new adventure, as I have been practicing Pediatric Dentistry for over 10 years and now, I am finally fulfilling my lifelong dream of opening my very own practice. As a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist and a mother of two children, I know how important it is for parents to find a comfortable dental home for their children. That is why it is our primary goal here at Just4KidzDentistry to create a warm, inviting and most important of all, fun environment where children can learn about the importance of good oral hygiene and diet while feeling at ease during their visit. Our office specializes in the dental needs of infants, children, adolescents and young adults. We pride our self on comprehensive early prevention because we believe excellent oral hygiene from infancy is vital in a child’s overall general health and development. Please feel free to stop by to see our Amusement park themed office and say hello! Also, don’t forget to like us on Facebook to see all the fun and exciting things we have planned!

Just 4 Kidz never disappoints. I have been a client for the past 3 years and my kid still loves going to his Dentist. He actually looks forward to his appointments and is really happy when he leaves.

Catherine R. - February 2019
The absolute BEST dentist, staff, and office environment possible! I have been bringing my kids here since the practice opened in Southington. They do not miss a thing! I just cannot say enough positive things about the practice and they are always so kind and willing to talk to you and help your children. I always feel as though they care about my child just as much as I do and I have never felt rushed or like a number. Although they are busy, they are calm and efficient, making you feel as though your child is the only one in the office. I recommend them to everyone I know.
Andrea M. - January 2019
My kids love going here!! Everyone is super friendly and always answer any questions we may have. The kids love playing with all the cool toys while we are waiting. The office is always clean.

★★★★★ The way the hygienist handled my son was amazing; she was so gentle and kind and explained everything. The dentist was also great. I was anxious because his first visit to the dentist was awful at another office, but just 4 kidz was amazing. I am so happy we found you and will recommend you to everyone!!!
Mateusz - August 2017
★★★★★ This office is fantastic! The lengths that every member goes to make sure that the patients develop a positive relationship with oral hygiene is amazing. Every person is warm and lovely. The decor is fun and so kid-friendly. I recommend this office to every single parent I meet.

Marcus - July 2017
Dr. Celeste and Melissa did great with my son today. He was very afraid of the dentist, but they knew exactly how to handle the situation. The office and staff are all amazing. I highly recommend this place to anyone. We live in Wallingford, but it was worth the drive.
Mandy Coulter - May 2017
My 2 and 3 year old girls went here for the first time this week. I was expecting full blown melt downs. The staff was so amazing - not only were there no melt downs but the girls didn't want to leave. They have tons of toys and activities to keep them occupied and Melissa did such a great job getting them both comfortable with the process and procedures. Thank you!!
Gina Lombardi - May 2017
Dr. Celeste and her staff are amazing! Both of my kids (4.5 and 15 months) are patients and we couldn't imagine going anywhere else. They are professional and love what they are doing. Most visits, I have a hard time getting my kids to leave. I recommend them to everyone I know!
Nichole Smith - March 2017

Danielle Kelleher - May 2017
I brought my 20 month old son here for his first dental visit. From the moment we walked in the door we were greeted with a patient and kind staff. Thanks for making his first Dentist fun and not scary.
Kelly Ann Constantino - April 2017
Our first time ever at the dentist was a wonderful experience, thanks to Just for Kidz dental. The building is so welcoming and kid friendly. The waiting room is full of fun things to do. The staff is amazing. They explained everything to my son, showed him all the dental tools they were using and really made us both feel very comfortable. We never thought going to the dentist could be so fun. Looking forward to our next cleaning in six months.
Lori Michelle Patterson - July 2016
I've been taking my daughter to Just 4 Kidz Dentistry, pretty much since it opened. I loved them before ... I love them even more, after today! My 6-year-old had to have 3 teeth extracted. They were the BEST! My daughter was very nervous (scared) going into the appointment and they made her feel at ease - she was even smiling and joking a little. Their professionalism and care of the kids they treat are above all the rest! Thank you, to Dr Celeste and the whole office for making such a great environment for your clients - kids & parents!
- Terry Kramer - Feruary 10, 2016
Amazing experience. My 3 year old son always had a meltdown at his past dentist, when we moved we decided to try here. He was nothing but smiles his whole visit & said he can't wait to go back! Thanks for taking such great care of my little guy!
- Christine Young- December 4, 2015
★★★★★ I lost my "Mother of the Year Award" when we were told our son had multiple cavities. I'm sitting here watching Dr. Celeste and her staff work on our son, fixing those bugs, and they are absolutely amazing. I've been in the dental field for 10 years and would recommend her and her staff to anyone!! Bonus, is her office is absolutely darling. You won't be disappointed if you choose Just 4 Kidz Dentistry!!
- Lindsay Henderson, December 8,2014
★★★★★ Brought my 2-year-old son there for the first time today. One week prior to our visit, we got all the paperwork in the mail and the envelope was decorated in a very fun playful manner, and there were stickers inside! We also got a call and reminder text about the appointment two days before.
As for the actual appointment, the staff could not have been any more friendly! The doctor is kind, informative, and not in a rush. My overall experience was better than I could have ever imagined!
This place understands and has great empathy for their clientele. I hope that as my son grows, he'll enjoy visiting his dentist as much I enjoy bringing him!

Two kids...four cavities. ....ZERO PAIN! What a terrific dentist and office! :)
- Kristin Parett Collins, September 10, 2014
We just brought our daughter to Dr. Celeste at Just 4 Kidz Dentistry for her first dental visit. Everything from when you walked into the doors was exceptional! Clean, kid friendly waiting room, a play room within the exam room and cute themes through out were enough to keep my 2 year old calm and cool. Dr Celeste was a very calm, caring presence full of knowledge a...nd education to keep your child on a healthy track! If Dr. Celeste isn't enough of a reason to make this your child's dental home try her amazing staff, especially Jennifer Guilmette. She had the exam process running like a fine tuned machine all with all the added kindness and knowledge you and your child would want and need. Truly exceptional care and people here...if you want the best for your child, this is the place!

What a Fantastic Experience!
My wife and I recently brought down our twin 18 month baby daughters to see Dr. Celeste at Just 4 Kidz Dentistry. All we can say is
Wow! We wish WE could go here!
The staff is friendly and helpful. The amusement park theme environment is warm and open. There are video games for the young and older kids. Fun things to explore on the wall and places to draw. An open area where two kids can be prepped at the same time with parents and others having fun! A beautiful little roller coaster is in the background and kinds get their x-rays taken in a Photo Booth in back! What a blast... This is NOTHING like the places we used to go to, and a far better experience than so-called generalized "Family Practices" trying to offer pediatric and adult services simultaneously with a rotating staff. Dr. Celeste was wonderful with our kids, and even showed us how to make teeth brushing a fun activity each evening! Our twins look forward to it now, each evening before bedtime. If you are looking for knowledgeable pediatric expertise, excellent service and an overall great dental experience for your kids, we HIGHLY recommend setting up an appointment with Dr. Celeste and Just 4 Kidz Dentistry.

I just recently brought my 6 and 4 year olds to their routine check ups. What an amazing experience! The entire staff was so friendly,
the office was beautifully decorated and their cleanings went so well they didn't want to leave. I would recommend this office to
anyone with children. See you ladies in 6 months!
