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!

Everyone is very professional and friendly and my daughter loved it!
We are new to town, and the entire staff was friendly and welcoming.
We had a great first visit, everyone was friendly and my daughter loved the waiting room toys.
When my daughter says "I like going to the dentist!", then I know that we have found an amazing office! Everyone in the office is friendly, professional and really care about the kids that they provide services too. When my daughter first starting to see Dr. Celeste, she was scared; she didn't want to open her mouth. Now, she is happy to go -- this says A LOT about the staff at this office. I have recommended them to many - and I will continue. They are the BEST!
We have been going to Dr. Celeste for about 5 years now and we haven't had a bad experience yet. The office is always beautifully decorated for the season for the kids. The hygienists and front desk staff are always so welcoming and friendly. Dr. Celeste is so gentle with my daughter and so thorough. I highly recommend this office!
We are always happy with Just 4 Kidz Dentistry! The dental hygienist’s are great with kids and Dr. Celeste is great!

My son loves going to the dentist! Thank you!!!
This was my sons fourth or fifth visit to the dentist and it was again a good experience for him. The hygienist was very friendly and explained everything to him on terms he can understand, hes 2.5 years, and showed him all the tools before working with him. She was both patient and efficient. The doctor is friendly and informative. I love using this office for my son. I have recommended it to multiple friends and family members for their children.
Friendly receptionists, hygienists and dentist. The hygienist did an amazing job at making my 2 year old feel very comfortable at his first dentist visit. He was so good because she made him feel so calm.
Wonderful from start to finish!
Wonderful visit, Thank You!
Excellent! I am so happy to have this office and dentist providing dental care for all 5 of my children! You make my children feel comfortable and provide excellent care!

I am obsessed with Just 4 Kids Dentistry. I have never experienced a warmer, more welcoming dental practice. My sons LOVE going to the dentist. Your staff all work above and beyond the call of duty to make this a calming and fun experience for children.Thank you so much for all that you do.
It is always a pleasure to come to the office and visit the girls. It’s been our dentist home for 16 years. I enjoy all of the entertainment that we share on our visits. This is not just our dentist, it is a friend.
My daughter enjoys going to get her teeth cleaned and that’s because of how fun and welcoming everyone at the office is!
Amazing place for kids!
I drive about an hour to go to this dentist. We move frequently, so I don’t know what i’ll Do when it’s time to go somewhere else. My kids LOVE going to this dentist.
Best Dentist and staff. Up to date equipment, extremely knowledgeable, friend. Recommend to everyone that has children.

"Excellent Dentist. Highly recommend!!"
"Dr. Celeste was wonderful. She is so helpful and really takes the time to explain things. Everyone is so nice there and my sons finally love going to the dentist."
"love love love this place!!! You are all amazing from the desk to the techs and Dr."
"My daughter was thrilled to recently have had braces put on but has been having difficulty cleaning around her brackets, especially in the back of her mouth. This was especially worrisome because her gums had become so puffy/irritated that in some spots they were close to actually going over the brackets. Dr. Celeste quickly got her in with one of her fabulous hygienists, who formerly worked in an orthodontic office, for braces education practice cleanings. My daughter has been able to get some great recommendations to take home and implement for more confidence and more importantly to make sure her mouth stays healthy while her braces are on. This is just another example of why our family chooses Just4Kidz for our children’s pediatric dentistry. They really go above and beyond our expectations every time! Thank you Just 4 Kidz!"
"Visiting Dr. Celeste and her team is always a pleasant experience. My son looks forward to the activities, toys and decor as well as the tender and attentive care of those taking care of him."
"I was a bit nervous as to what to expect during my little Olivia's 1st Dental visit, I must say it was very pleasing to see the staff so professional , friendly, attentive, but mostly extremely patient with her.. I would recommend Just 4 Kidz dentistry to everyone specially any 1st time parents who might be just a bit more unaware as to what to expect.. Location is great and easy to find its was only a 15 minute drive from Waterbury for myself ... THANK YOU All specially Marissa you were so kind and gentle with my baby girl... Keep up the good work."
"Dr. Celeste is very skilled and knowledgeable. We appreciate all her and her wonderful staff did for us! Highly recommended for children!"
"This is the best dental practice I've ever seen or been to. The multiple play areas, friendliness of everyone, cleanliness, and professionalism is amazing. My son is 3 and very active and they does such a good job being patient with him. Thank you for taking care of my son & his teeth."
"Everyone in the office is great! Their patience and ability to interact and make kids feel comfortable and calm is amazing! The focus on care & comfort should be for the kids - and they truly excel in doing this! Any opportunity I have to recommend them, I do -- they are amazing and the BEST pediatric dentist group!"
"My kids and I both love coming to this dental practice. The staff is great with kids and the office is set-up very kid friendly. They make kids excited about brushing their teeth!"
"The office is a 30 minute drive from my town but the service is worth it. My son's first experiences with 2 different dental clinics left him adamant about visiting the dentist but this changed from his first visit to Just4Kids. He LOVES going to the dentist!!! I have to pry him away when it is time to leave and he looks forwards to his next appointments every time. Thank you Dr. Celeste and team!"
"My 1.5 year old daughter had a fantastic visit! She immediately made herself at home with all the toys and wandered the office as she pleased throughout the appointment. The staff let her have her teeth checked at her own pace and they were all very friendly. I have never been to a healthcare office where we felt so at home, and it was very refreshing! It's clear that this office loves what they do and their patients. Thank you and keep up the excellent work!! :)"
"Both of my sons love Dr. Celeste and the care they receive at Just4kidz dentistry. They actually look forward to their visits, rather than dreading it, as so many kids do at other practices. It's a wonderful office and we recommend it every time anyone asks us where the kids go - since they rave about their dental experiences. Thank you!"
"We love the office! Everyone on staff are excellent with our two and a half year old. The technician was so great with her and my daughter easily allowed her to do the entire cleaning. They are great at what they do!"
"I absolutely love this dentist office for my children. My son is autistic and they handle him very well and are always very nice and patient. I would recommend this office to anyone with a child looking for a dentist."
"We love your office. The kids are happy to go. Everyone who works there is very friendly and professional and great with children."
