My twin girls are 2-1/2 and today was their very first dentist experience and it was the absolute BEST!! All the staff were so patient & amazing with the girls. They never pushed anything or forced them to do anything they didn’t want to do. They worked with them so well, it truly amazed my husband & I how well the appointment went, all thanks to the staff at Fantasea Pediatric Dentistry! Dr. Lastres answered any questions we had and was so so so amazing & patient with my girls! We can’t thank them enough for how incredible they were with the girls!! My girls couldn’t stop talking about the dentist when we left. I know they can’t wait to go back for their 6 month checkup!
My first child was just born (Feb 2020), joyously but with what I have read is a 1 in 2,000 condition. She had a sizable natal tooth in the bottom front. There are lots of legends about this kind of thing, but we all worried that it might come loose and she might swallow it. Our pediatricians resolved that the tooth must come out. Not knowing who to turn to for this critical procedure on my beloved baby girl, I accepted the recommendation of the pediatrician to go to Fantasea Pediatric Dentistry. It was close to NCH where we had just been discharged a couple of days earlier. Walking into the Fantasea office, there was a beautiful room-covering painting and aquarium. We were greeted warmly and given a tablet to register with. I was all focused on what was to come. Soon the doctor called us back. Her name is Joana Lastres, and I was immediately encouraged by all the genuine caring shown by the doctor and every single member of the staff. Dr. Lastres thoroughly explained to us what was to be done, and I was confident by the time she began the extraction. She applied a few techniques and quickly removed the natal tooth from our baby! It was a great relief since this had been my primary concern of the five days since the birth. Our little girl was calm, painless, and smiling again almost instantly, just a few seconds after the doctor finished. Finally, Dr. Lastres spent some time with us post-operation, and personally followed up with a call the next day. I told her that I was eternally grateful, and I truly am to everyone at Fantasea. Thank God for highly-skilled people who passionately care about their work. They are rare, but I have found some here and I intend to take our child often when she is old enough for regular dentist checkups. Right now, our baby is still in her first week and already a big fan!
Love the staff and the whole environment. My kids have zero fear of the dentist. We are so grateful for Fantasea
The best first dentist appointment ever ! Perfect for kids. Can’t recommend more !
Beautiful clean office! Very kid friendly and professional staff! Dr. Lastras and her awesome staff made it a VERY pleasant experience. From spending time teaching my little one how to brush her teeth and then brushing their stuffed animals teeth. It was all the fine details that count. I'm only sorry I didn't bring my daughter sooner. Thank you!
They took the time to explain the xrays that I provided from another dentist. I was given options as to what avenue we could take and her honest opinion. The staff from the front desk to the back was very nice, personable and professional. While the procedure will cost a little more compared to my previous dentist office I’m still making the switch because the customer service was amazing and there office environment was friendly and welcoming
My kids love going to the dentist! Dr. Lastres and her staff are amazing!
Miss Alitia was extremely calm, friendly, accepting and welcoming. She helped my son pick out a new brush, new toothpaste and asked him to brush his teeth for her. He got to brush the teeth of other animals, see Mom her her teeth brushed too, sit in the X-ray chair, pick out prizes....it was a happy experience for all of us. Dr Lastres was very calm, understanding and gentle. My son didn’t want to have his teeth cleaned so she helped him count all his teeth and reviewed his xrays. I HIGHLY recommend this office for anyone with a first-time visit, anyone with a special needs child AND for anyone with any kid of any age. We are excited to return!
Fantasia Pediatric Dentistry is the best. Dr Lastres is so caring she puts my son at ease. He has been there 3 times now to prepare him for his first cleaning and he has enjoyed every visit. She even took the time to follow up with me on a weekend when my son was sick with a virus. A little extra that goes a long way.
What a wonderful office! Everyone is very kind and professional, and they made my very shy little one feel right at home.
Dr. Lastres and her staff, along with the entire facility at Fantasea Pediatric Dentistry have been AMAZING with my additional needs 6 year old. My little one is not only ADHD, but on the Autism Spectrum. These lovely folks are so we'll prepared and attentive to her sensory, behavioral and developmental issues, that I was in complete awe and how well they were able to get her to cooperate and keep her from going into meltdown mode. I highly recommend them!
Friendly, prompt, and professional!
Positive experience for my daughter and I both, from start to finish! Exactly the atmosphere I was hoping for when I decide to change dentist! My daughter asked if she can come every month for a cleaning!
Love this place. My daughter felt comfortable and enjoyed her first visit! Very kid friendly! And all the nurses and doctor were amazing! Wonderful bed side manners. They were very prompt and informative. We would definitely come back.
My girls love coming to the dentist! Dr Lastres and her staff are fun and upbeat. They are not afraid to take time and explain dental issues or concerns and definitely go above and beyond to make everyone comfortable. The moment you open the doors at Fantasea Dentistry you feel a sense of calm and see the excitement on my girls faces as they wait to be called. Dr Lastres by far is the best Pediatric dentist and my girls can’t wait to visit them every 6 months. Never a fight or a struggle when you tell them they have a dentist appointment. Thank you so much Dr Lastres and your staff for always making it a fun and enjoyable experience every time.
We had the best experience at Fantasea Pediatric. The staff and Dr. Lastres were so sweet and patient with my son. Everyone is welcoming and make the whole process as stress free as possible. We’re very happy we found them and excited to come back.
Very professional and great experience. Although the reason for our visit was due to a fall that resulted in a traumatic tooth/gum injury to my 3 year old son, we were provided the confidence to make an educated decision. The injury was so significant that we had (2) other dentists review my sons injury but it was clear that the subject matter expert was Dr. Lastres.
The best staff! I love coming to the dentist thanks to them!
Our twin 1 year olds had a great "first check-up" with Dr. Lastres. She made them feel very comfortable and allowed my husband and I to be apart of the experience. We were given useful information about what to do until their next check-up. We are very happy we chose this office for our girls.
Leo's first dentist appointment went so well! The staff was so friendly and attentive... They made it such a great experience for him. Would highly recommend!
Lovely staff! My children love going to the dentist now.
Very quick. Very friendly. Highly recommend!
Very kind, funny, and patient with my silly 7 year old as she had her cavity filled
This office consistently provides outstanding, honest And professional service in pediatric dentistry. My children love the staff and dentists.
My daughter first saw Dr. Singer for years and sold his practice and it’s now Fantasea. You would never know there was a change. Everything stayed the same, the staff and the care. Only thing different is the Dr. who is amazing!
We love the staff! They are excellent at keeping the kids happy and entertained the entire appointment. Would definitely recommend them!
I had been going to Dr. Singer for many many years and have never had a bad experience. With the amazing addition of Dr. Lastres I can’t think of a better pediatric dentist in town!
Best pediatric dental practice by far. Their staff is very friendly and professional. They take the time with each kid to explain on what what they’re doing. My son used to be scared of going to the dentist and now because of them he loves going to there.
Our family was very disappointed when we heard that Dr.Singer was going to retire. We are extremely picky when it comes to health care and our providers . Dr. Singer was the very best in our opinion and i think it will be very hard to replace him; however we met our new Dr today and we were plesently surprised ; she is warm , kind and it is clear that she knows what she is doing. Our eight year old daughter felt very comfortable with her. Many of Dr. Singers assistants are still there and i think that says a lot in itself . They are awesome with kids and we just love them as much !!!! I️we trust that Dr. Singer wouldn’t leave his practice to just anyone. He cared way to much about each and every patient to let anyone take over for him. This doctor has to very very special and on our first meeting we saw that as well
My kids love going to the dentist! The staff is superb and make you feel like you are their only patient. I definitely recommend this dentist!
The staff and dentist here is top notch! They are so professional and they are Awesome with the kids. My daughter has been a patient here for years and we have no complaints.
Amazing Staff! So patient and fun with our kids. They love going to the dentist!!!!
I really like Dr. Singer as my dentist. I am so sad to see him leave to retire.
I took my 2 year old son in for his first dentist visit. The office was very cute and entertaining for kids. The staff was SO friendly and Dr. Lastres was the BEST! I never thought my son would actually agree to sit down on the chair and get his teeth checked, but he did! We loved it and we will definitely be going back!
Dr. Singer is a fantastic dentist. He is gentle with the kids and his office is beautiful. I love all of the members of his staff; they are so nice to the kids. If he took care of adults, I would be a patient. :)
Outstanding care, amazing child friendly decor, fish tanks, gorgeous dental chairs, top notch!
If you are looking for a pediatric dentist in Naples Dr. Singer should be your first choice. The doctor is very knowledgeable, accommodating, generous with his time and most importantly truly great with kids. It was my son's first time experience with taking care of a cavity. (Unfortunately good dental care at home did not prevent it from happening.) He was somewhat nervous, but Dr. Singer and his staff made this experience absolutely painless and even somewhat fun. I wish dentists in my childhood were as personable and caring as Dr. Singer! If you ask my son what he liked the most about Dr. Singer's office he will say: "The prizes, of course!" At the end of the visit he was offered to select toys for himself and his little sister. I do not think I will have a problem bringing my son back for cleaning in 6 months.;)
We have been using Dr. Singer for about 7 years now and we love him and the staff is great!
This is the BEST and ONLY place i will take my boys. OUTSTANDING!
