Toddlers and Dentists

I haven’t taken RC to the dentist yet. Both I and my husband agreed that we are not taking her yet. Probably when she turned three years old, she will be better prepared. Some dentist recommends that the first visit should be done a few months after the temporary tooth comes out. RC is already scared of the regular doctor and we don’t want to subject her yet in another type of trauma. I know it can be good for her but I just know that she is not ready yet to see a dentist. I was just at the dentist a few weeks ago for deep cleaning and it hurt… for days.
All of us at one time or another needs a general dentist or orthodontist. It’s great if we have a family dentist, but many of us don’t have dental insurance and need to find a dentist for those emergencies like cavities or a broken tooth. You can do it the old fashioned way and search through the phone book, but I don’t even have a phone book anymore since we got rid of our home phone to save money. Now everything can be done on the computer, smart phone, or tablet, anywhere you have internet access. To find dentists, go to On their website, you’ll be able to find either a dentist or orthodontist, and you can make an appointment after you’ve located the dentist of your choice. The site also has payment options and special offers to reduce the price of more expensive dental procedures. All dentists in the Smile Generation approved offices will provide you with exceptional care and the website is very convenient and will save time.
Please share some experiences about your kids going to the dentist. I would be eager to know.
