fun dental office for children! Live music by dr. bland!

Our mission at The Wiggly Tooth is to help children reach adulthood without being fearful or anxious of dental visits.

When a child has a bad experience at the dentist when they are young, they are less likely to seek routine preventive dental care when they grow up! 

 

Our Practice

Dr. Shahbazi, Dr. Bland, and Dr. Korf are specialists in the field of Pediatric Dentistry. This requires the completion of an additional two-to-three years of advanced training beyond the traditional eight years of education to become a dentist.

Dr. Bland and Dr. Shahbazi have received extensive training in sedation dentistry beyond their residency programs. Together, they have completed thousands of cases using sedation dentistry practices.

Along with being Dr. Shahbazi and Dr. Bland's mentor, Dr. Korf is a lifetime member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, has practiced pediatric dentistry in Scottsdale for decades, and is an expert in non-sedation pediatric dentistry. 

The Wiggly Tooth is excited to serve our community as pediatric dentists in Scottsdale, AZ for years to come.

Our Services

Early Dental Care Arizona
Exams, Cleanings, Fluoride, X-rays, Sealants & *Live Music!
Good habits start early. We recommend bringing your child to see us by their first birthday. These visits will allow us to catch any dental issues that may be starting early. Your kids will also get used to visiting us! For all the moms and dads with kiddos under three years old – If you think they’re going to be quiet during their exam, think again! It is called separation anxiety and is completely normal. Don’t worry, we love it! 🙂

NON-SEDATION DENTISTRY

Not comfortable with sedation dentistry? Hakuna Matata! (That means no worries) Dr. Korf is an expert in non-sedation pediatric dentistry.

*Dr. Bland plays guitar and sings to every patient that he sees! Dr. Shahbazi is actively learning the piano! we love music, and we love being pediatric dentists in Scottsdale!

Early Dental Care Scottsdale

restorative & Sedation dentistry

Oh no. sugar bugs.

Don’t panic. We’re the exterminators. We will take care of your little one’s with white crowns on their front teeth, and white fillings/silver crowns on their back teeth. if a tooth is lost too soon in the back, we will make a space maintainer for proper growth and development. We typically recommend some form of sedation dentistry with most kids. It relaxes them, which makes our job a lot easier. That’s the gist. Oh yeah, they’re going to love us too!

nitrous oxide

Laughing gas

The pediatric dentist’s best friend. You breathe in through your nose, it takes effect super quickly, and wears off just as quickly. suitable for minor cases(sealants, small fillings)

moderate sedation

the unicorn juice

Your little one will drink a small cocktail that will enable them to relax during the procedure. Don’t worry, unlike many dental offices you can stay in the room with us and see how hard we work.

general anesthesia

The Caveman needs a nap

Sometimes children may need to “go to sleep” in order to have their dental treatment completed. This is accomplished by working with an anesthesiologist in our office. 

My grandson Jace went to the dentist today for the first time at 4 yrs old. Dr. Bland was Amazing!!!! He played his guitar and sang to Jace which was wonderful because it made Jace forget how nervous he was. This is by far the best Dentist visit that I've ever encountered. I just have one question, " will you sing to me before working on my teeth Dr. Bland? LOL... Your the Best!! Thank you for making Jaces first dentist visit comfortable and memorable. We were 100% satisfied!

Kathy M. Grandma

This is our second time coming to this dental office and let me tell you, I usually don't do reviews on much BUT in this case this Dr and this dental office deserves recognition for their care. My daughters were very afraid to go to the dentist but now they absolutely love coming to this office because they can not wait to see Dr Bland. Dr Bland is very patient with his smaller patients who may be scared of Drs and he takes his time to get his patients comfortable and happy. Most importantly he takes the time to get to know his patients and everyone in the family! He comes in with his guitar and sings to his patients and sings with his patients and unlike other Drs he does well in informing everyone what is going on. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT you give him a call when it comes to your children and family. Wonderful dentist, Dr and man💯

Whitney P. Mom

We take our 3 year old son to see Dr. Shahbazi. She is a great pediatric dentist. Dr. Shahbazi's demeanor puts our son at ease, and it has helped him to develop a love of the dentist. Besides Dr. Shahbazi, the whole team is great and makes each visit easy.

James T. Dad

Dr. Bland is so amazing! I love the fact before he start working with kids! He will bring his Guitar and sing a song or two with the kids so they can feel comfortable with him! He is amazing!

    I highly recommend The Wiggly Tooth if you're looking for amazing dentists who make the experience fun for kids while providing them with the best treatment possible.

    I am an ASU pre-dental student who has been given the opportunity of shadowing at this wonderful office. I have the upmost respect for Dr. Shahbazi and all of the amazing professionals within the office. Having visited a variety of offices, The Wiggly Tooth has the most welcoming staff and Dentists who truly care for their patients, comfort levels, and building lasting connections with them. Going to the dentist can be a very scary experience for a young child and I have seen first hand how Dr. Shahbazi combats this by creating a calm and welcoming environment and walking the patients through their care. I cannot recommend this clinic enough because of the incredible staff and outstanding Dentists.

    Dr. Shahbazi and Dr. Bland are both outstanding and respectful professionals. I am a pre-dental student from ASU who shadows both Dr. Bland and Dr. Shahbazi and I could only say that my experiences from both of these Dentists are strictly positive. Throughout the office I have witnessed an environment full of positivity, professionalism, and opened-minded people throughout the staff which helps create a very welcoming experience, especially for young kids scared for their first dental visit. I would say that it is definitely a unique experience coming to this dental clinic compared to others due to the fact that there is so much care and effort that is coming from this staff to their patients, which is something that isn’t usually seen in some clinics. I recommend this clinic because Dr. Bland and also Dr. Shahbazi build connections with their patients and help them understand why it’s important to keep teeth healthy and clean.

    My first visit of the Wiggly Tooth in the Desert Cove location was terrible! They recently took over ownership for my kids’ former pediatric dentist, Dr. Korf, who was retiring. We have been going to Dr. Korf’s pediatric dentist office for at least 18 years and we never had a problem under Dr. Korf’s ownership. Once I arrived, they didn’t greet me with a friendly smile. Instead, they told me that I was 30 minutes late. They ended up changing the times to my kids dentist appointments 30 minutes earlier, without notifying me as the parent, which I set up months ago. Instead of them apologizing and showing polite courteous customer service, they acted rudely and made it seem like it was my fault. They said that they would still take my kid’s in for a cleaning, but that we would have to wait after they see 2 other patients, which they moved ahead of us. I told them never mind and said that I will no longer go to their office and walked out.

    We had the best experience at The Wiggly Tooth! My son is almost two and this was his first dentist appointment and it was so fun, quick and easy. Nurse Adrianna was sweet and attentive, Dr. Najmeh was tender and thorough when cleaning my son’s teeth, and to top it off we got serenaded by Dr. Nicholas which was just the icing on the cake! My son had fun and was all smiles when we left the appointment. I would absolutely recommend this place for your kiddos!

    First off, this experience was incredible!! They had the best waiting room, perfect for children. Dr. Bland and Adriana (as well as the rest of the staff we encountered) were so personable and friendly. They got all three of my kids in due to some cancellations, no questions asked. We all had such a great time. Bland came in with a guitar and played whatever nursery songs my kids wanted him to do. The crown he built on my baby girls tooth is PERFECT!! My kids cannot wait for their next appointment and frankly neither can I!

    I cannot say enough good things about this place. The staff is exceptionally sweet and personable. The lobby has plenty of toys and a very spatial area where kids can play while they wait but also to ease them into the appointment. My son loved the attention and how interactive the staff was with him. He was told about a treasure box and that he’d be able to pick a toy to take with him after his appointment which was a very motivating factor for him. The staff also played his favorite cartoon on the screen and my son immediately felt like at home. Dr. Naji is very gentle and fun, my son responded really well to her, to the point, where he is motivated to let me floss his teeth at home now, all because Dr. Naji “said so”. I’m very thankful for his experience that was so positive that he is going to want to go back. Thank you Wiggly Tooth we will be back!!!!!

    If you’re looking for a pediatric dentist, I could not recommend Dr. Nicholas Bland The Wiggly Tooth enough. He was absolutely amazing and the front desk staff, Adriana was so sweet as well.He sang and played the guitar to help our son feel comfortable and was so patient and kind . He was thorough and answered any concerns or questions I had with research based answers.It didn’t end there. We walked a few suites down from them to CafeAu Plait(which I highly recommend as well) and he was already in the playroom singing holiday  songs to all the kid s and moms in there. Sooooo amazing ! I wish my son needed more dental visits 😂.

    My daughter was scared to death to go to the dentist. She went to the Wiggly tooth with anxiety and came back smiles. The dentist and staff were amazing from booking the appointment to taking care of her. She wasn’t afraid going back to have work done. He made her laugh and feel at ease. There are very few people out there to go above and beyond for their younger patients and he is one of the best. Thank you so much for taking care of my daughter

    I had my daughter at another dentist. She had to have 4 teeth pulled and was super scared. The dentist wasn’t very friendly. She gave my daughter a bunch of shots and just started to pull out the teeth. My daughter freaked out and slipped out from the nitrous. The dentist pointed her finger and told my kid she needed to stop or she would give her 10 more shots. So this is how we found Wiggly Tooth!!! They are so amazing!!!! He came in sang a cute song to her made her feel safe and comfortable. Unfortunately we didn’t get the work done. She has a very high tolerance to any medication. She woke up just as he was starting and she became to wiggly herself. It made my husband and I comfortable to know he wasn’t comfortable continuing with her being so wiggly. He was very informative and walked us threw the process. We will be going back definitely. Oh and I drive 33 minutes 1 way.

    My 2 yr old special needs son had his first dentist appointment today with Dr. Bland and I seriously cannot thank him and his team enough. They were all patient and so very kind. He sang multiple songs, played the guitar and Lucian was lovin it, even danced a few times. It made me so happy to find someone who actually cares and is willing to show it. Thank you all again and I HIGHLY recommend this dentistry to everyone! I'd give 100 ☆ if I could!Happy Holidays!The Hardin Family

    The staffs were very friendly and helpful and the dentists were honest and straight forward. I have been to other dentists that exaggerated what my needs were in order to make more money. So it was a relief to find a dentist with integrity for my kids.All of my children loved both Drs (Dr Shahbazi and Dr Bland).The professionalism and friendliness of the whole team was outstanding,So that is a seriously highly recommended If you wanna take very good care of your kids.My experience after 3 different visits.Mother of 3Somy

    I am so glad that Dr. Shahbazi, and Dr. Bland have moved into the neighborhood and will be my daughter’s new Dentist! We had our first visit yesterday with Dr. Bland. My daughter had the best experience. Dr. Bland played the guitar and sang her a song. The coolest experience you could get from a Dentist. My child actually liked him and there were minimal tears for an 18-month-old. Thank you, Dr. Bland. I look forward to having you as our primary Dentist for our daughter’s. The appointment was very personable, and the staff were very happy. Overall exceptional experience. If you live in McDowell Mountain, definitely look into switching your child’s dentist.

    What an excellent dental office! Everyone was friendly and welcoming, and Dr. Shahbazi was amazing. She took her time, explained everything to me and answered all of my questions, and made the entire visit pleasant for my kids. Dr. Shahbazi and her staff were especially wonderful with my 4 year old, who was very nervous for her dental exam but left the visit with a big smile on her face due to the kindness and patience we experienced. Highly recommend.

Then Dr. Bland played songs on guitar for my daughter. Dr. Shahbazi did the exam for my daughter. She took her time with my daughter to ensure she wasn’t scared. I have already scheduled my daughter’s 6 months exam. Great practice.
