Quoting Not tellin:" Really? Incorrect across the board. I am pretty floored at all you just had to say. #1 it is not ... [snip!] ... #4 Professionally, they aren't allowed to "give an ear full". It isn't ethical. One that does can be in big trouble "
Be floored all you want, this is what I have been told by my DS old dentist. I'm going by what was said. Most kidsm in fact, do freak out. Dentist don't wanna deal with them, so they gas them. I was told they don't pull teeth because they're baby teeth and they'll eventually fall out. Lastly, it may be unethical, but it does happen. I've heard my sister get chewed out by my nephew's pedi cuz of his weight, I hear her get chewed out by my niece's pedi because my niece is 4 and haven't been to a dentist and still sucks her thumb, I've heard OBs chew out girls for their weight and I've heard my DS's current dentist chew out a mom because she doesn't enforce teeth brushing with her 2year old. So, you may think you have all the facts, but you don't. This is what I've been told and what I've experience. I'm sorry we were taught differently.
Thanks for the reply though.
