Quoting Colt's mommy:" Exactly. I've seen it happen. I've seen a little girl screaming and running around the room while we ... [snip!] ... worse. THEN the mother calls and complains that the other tech traumatized her daughter. Children are very tricky, lol."
Quoting A is Me:" Maybe they don't allow more than one person back with child at a time which I can understand bc most ... [snip!] ... I sat knee to knee and my son sat in my lap facing me and leaned back into dentist's lap. That made things much easier for DS."
Quoting A is Me:" <blockquote><b>Quoting GL♣PB:</b>" Okay, thank you.. I will ask first then. ... [snip!] ... before, you can hold and control a child's hands and make them feel comforted and not freaked the smurf out strapped to a table."
Quoting Supafly★:" Some don't but I wouldn't go to one that wouldn't let me back there. I recently heard of a story where ... [snip!] ... the parents even know about it. Plus my 3 year old is scared of everything so I had to be there to help hold him down. "
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 GL♣PB:" That is awesome they get to watch movies! Lol I do not remember that when I was a child!"
Quoting Moses.:" Exactly. And, my kids LOVE the dentist, so when I saw her acting a fool, I knew it was cause of me there. ... [snip!] ... to switch dentists. When we were living in San Antonio, we still kept them and I just made the 4 hour drive every 6 months lol"
Quoting Moses.:" Oh yeah, they have screens in the ceilings so they can watch a movie or play video games. Then they ... [snip!] ... they can play. For the cleanings they get a pair of sunglasses to protect their eyes from the big lights. LOVE their office."
Quoting GL♣PB:" Now I wish we had a Kool Smiles .. there are only 18 Pediatric Dentists within 25 miles of us (and in ... [snip!] ... of us (and in network with our insurance), but over a hundred General, would you definitely reccommend a Pedi over Gen then?"
Quoting GL♣PB:" lol I want to go there! I HATE the dentist .. even more the shots, thank goodness for the gas!"
