About Us

Fueling family togetherness & lifelong oral health.

Our Mission

Every day at PlayWell, we’re inspired by childlike wonder. We believe that awe, imagination, and curiosity can strengthen family bonds and gather momentum for more meaningful daily dental routines. With that vision in mind, it’s our mission to instill a positive attitude towards smile care by way of play! Teaming up with parents, Dr. Jadin and our energetic crew are building a space that empowers kiddos to feel confident in themselves and their oral health for life.

Meet Dr. Jadin

Born and bred in Wisconsin, Dr. David Jadin grew up with an innate passion for math and science. His friends could usually find him number crunching or tutoring other teens in calculus and organic chemistry. During his freshman year of college, he delved into the wonderful world of dentistry. A career path that didn’t originally cross his radar, dentistry seamlessly integrated his hands-on, innovative spirit with his desire to help children lead healthy, happy lives – and the rest is history!

After graduating with his Bachelor of Science degree in biology, he went on to become a Doctor of Dental Surgery and earned his Fellowship at Marquette University. He then completed his pediatric dentistry residency at the University of Minnesota. With a tender hand and a mind that’s always eager to learn more, Dr. Jadin stays up-to-date with the latest minimally invasive methods in dentistry to protect his patients’ natural growing grins.

As the founder and visionary of PlayWell, guiding little ones towards a flourishing relationship with their dentist is the heartbeat behind Dr. Jadin’s practice. He absolutely loves working with families, and there’s nothing he enjoys more than seeing a child take sincere pride in their accomplishments. He’s here to bring laughter, knowledge, and encouragement to Elm Grove’s little brushers!

Outside of pediatric dentistry, Dr. Jadin’s whole world revolves around his family – and he wouldn’t want to have it any other way. He’s married to his lovely and supportive high school sweetheart, and has three brilliant kids who keep him on his toes! Whether he’s knitting something new, making his own LEGO creations, tinkering with watches, or doing a STEAM activity with his kids, you can also catch Dr. Jadin immersing himself in new experiences and projects.

Our Patient Reviews

“My 3yo had such a great first dentist experience with Dr Jadin & Playwell. The whole staff is very friendly, and Dr Jadin was so patient & good at explaining things at a child’s level. I also learned a lot as a parent that I can do differently/be aware of to maximize my daughter’s oral health for the future. She had a blast and has been carrying all her ‘prizes’ around all day, practice flossing, and let me do a really thorough brushing this evening ‘like at the dentist.’ As a side bonus the office Lego theme is AMAZING, I think I was even more impressed than my daughter lol. So cool. Definitely recommend!! I don’t think there’s any other dentist office that can match this experience.”

– Rachel Chelstowski, Brookfield
“You can tell Dr. Jadin and team absolutely love what they do! The office is colorful, fun, and kept immaculately in order. Thank you for making our baby’s first trip to the dentist special.”

- Lora Santiago, Wauwatosa 
“If I could give more than 5 stars I would! My 2 year old has developmental delays, so we were a little anxious about his first visit to the dentist. Dr. Jadin was beyond patient with him, and made us feel comfortable throughout the visit. He was very informative as well, I had great take aways that we can implement at home. It was such a positive experience I told my husband "I think we found the best dentist in the greater Milwaukee area!" I highly recommend and have shared info with all of my family and friends with kiddos. Thanks, Dr. Jadin!”

– Alexis Hughes, Wauwatosa 
“Really exceeded my expectations. Dr Jadin was great with my 19 month old daughter who wouldn’t even open up for our previous dentist. He addressed all our concerns and thoroughly explained his thought process. All staff were professional and friendly. The office is super cool as well. While there was almost no wait at all, we would have been plenty occupied looking through all the Lego displays. Looking forward to our next visit (something I never thought I would say about a dentist).”

– Cole Lightfoot, Brookfield
“From the receptionist, the assistant, and Dr. Jadin my daughter was treated with such kindness and patience. She was nervous but they all had her walls down in the short time we were there! I appreciate Dr. Jadin giving me advice and not doing anything that may not be needed at this time.”

– Angela Anderson, Fond du Lac
“This pediatric dentist blew me away! He approaches the kids right away and talks about toys and legos, and they're relaxed and excited, and happy to select a movie to watch during their cleaning. They trust him because he's a kid at heart and everything goes so smoothly. He's able to get the really little ones to cooperate no problem by goofing around and being silly. This is the best pediatric dentistry experience we have had, we will definitely return to him, and highly recommend him for toddlers and children of all ages. It was actually fun for the kids and they're excited to go back.”

– Kristin Hodorowski, Brookfield
“Want to be super jealous of your kids’ dental experience? Then bring them here! My six-year old needed some restorative work, and I am glad we found this gem. The clinic and staff are top notch-skilled and dedicated to providing high quality care from check-in through departure. I personally love places that are a clear reflection of the people who created them, and PlayWell is truly that. Legos, cool TV, books, stuffies, clever signs, and a prize box round out the package. Check it out!”

– Andrea Gage, Shorewood
“Amazing place to take your child to! I have previously taken my son to a different dentist who he was not happy with. He hasn't stopped talking about wanting to go back to the Lego Dentist. Love that Dr. Jadin takes time to not only make sure you feel comfortable as a parent, but spends a lot of time being at your child's level talking to them as well. He is very thorough and actually shows you what he is talking about while he is doing it. Couldn't recommend this place enough!”

– Laura Donehoo, Colgate
“Our adult-focused dentist seemed OK for our kids until one day it wasn’t. My 5-year-old was referred to PlayWell and I’m happy we were. I now realize a pediatric dentist can offer a much more positive experience, even to my older child who was compliant at our old dental office. I’m more excited to take the kids for their regular check-ups knowing they’ll have a fun, warm, kid-friendly experience. Dr. Jadin has really gone the extra mile to set up an amazing space and takes time to help kids warm up.”

– Lin Nelson, Brookfield
“We knew Play well would be a fun place for my kids to go to the dentist but did not expect it to be this awesome!! My LEGO lovers said "BEST dentist ever!" Dr. Jadin was very thorough and took the time to explain to our kids the importance of having healthy and clean teeth, and how to properly care for them. I loved that he donates to an awesome organization for every new patient he receives, and gives the kids books at each visit. Talk about caring for his patients! I can't say enough great things about him!”

– Erika Klockner, Brookfield
“A beautiful experience from start to finish! Dr. Jadin greeted us in the lobby and talked to/educated us while asking questions about the little one. Allowed little one to continue getting comfortable in the environment with all of the lego pieces laid out and had legos that responded to a push of the button that he liked! We got an office tour that the little one said “wooww” to! This was our first dental visit for the kiddo and the transition from meet and greet to examination was seamless. The patience and service that Dr. Jadin and his entire team presented was great. All were welcoming, cheery, and assisted in calming the kiddo when he became upset after his first professional cleaning. We didn’t feel rushed to get out and even with a scream-crying toddler, not once did anyone display frustration. We also got a goody bag with stuff my baby started playing with in the office and continued playing with at home. I think Dr. Jadin put my son on to a new activity - legos! I’m so glad to have found PlayWell for my baby. Thank you Dr. Jadin & PlayWell Team!”

– Githa Hansana, West Allis

We Love to Give Back

Partners with sunbeam kids

With every new patient, PlayWell Pediatric Dentistry donates to and supports Sunbeam Kids! Sunbeam Kids, Inc. is "an all volunteer driven 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated organizing projects and providing resources to make it easier for kids and families to volunteer together." They are based here in Brookfield but their projects benefit people & organizations here, in the Milwaukee Area, and beyond.

It is our mission at PlayWell to serve families and to encourage family values - to reinforce what you already do at home. We want to show off how cool it is to play together (puzzles, card games, board games, and of course, LEGO!), to read together, and to encourage family time spent together through volunteering!

Volunteering together is a great way to get out and experience something new with your family. Sunbeam Kids make it easy to get out in the world to see new places and do an array of unique and different things, all while providing precious moments with your little one that they'll never forget. The lessons they learn while sharing in the experience of volunteering will not only last a lifetime, but it also leaves a positive impact on the community, giving children something they can be proud of.

Sunbeam kids is a great organization and we're so proud to sponsor them and we hope you check them out, join, and hopefully my kids and I will see you at the next Sunbeam Kids event!
