Quoting Logan&Lilly's Mommy:" I have always been allowed back with my son or allowed to look through the window at him.. I took him to Kool Smiles. I dont know if they have one where you live or not."
Quoting GL♣PB:" eh I don't know.. She got amazing reviews, then one.. not so good review.. at all. She is the first ... [snip!] ... good reviews from my minute list that our insurance allows.. so I wanted to double check before I moved on.. to the next haha"
Quoting 36-24-36OnlyIfshes5-3:" The one we went to like that was horrible, they used this "papoose" thing to basically tie down my son ... [snip!] ... afraid of dentists (he's 11 now). I'd never take my kids somewhere that doesn't allow me in the back ever, ever, ever again. "
Quoting tonys_mama(army wife):" Not normal at all. That would be very traumatic for a 2 year old."
Quoting Moses.:" This is very normal practice. Here is why. They told me it was because children tend to freak with parents ... [snip!] ... my kids, even before they went back by themselves, I have NEVER seen a child pitch a fit who was back without their parents. "
Quoting ×ø×K·ßear×ø×:" id keep looking. i take cameron to kool smiles and theyve never had a problem with me going back with him"
Quoting PurpleBama582:" My pediatric dentist won't let me back...and the regular dentist my 11 yr old sees won't let me back, either. I'd say it's pretty normal. "
Quoting PurpleBama582:" I think for a child's first visit, and especially given his age, the dentist might allow you back there. ... [snip!] ... you back there. I went back with my youngest for her first visit, and she was 4. I don't go back with my 9 year old, though. "
Quoting Angel [Mariah's Mommy]:" Some places don't, they say it's distracting for the child. Just keep looking for one that will let you back"
Quoting GL♣PB:" How do your children do with going alone?"
Quoting Love = Moco and Bubba:" Try tomorrow? Just find a place you are comfortable with. I haven't taken my oldest to the dentist yet and he is going to be 2 "
