HI! Im looking for a pediatric dental specialist that can get a root canal or two done on my 5 year old daughter and not scare her from dentist. Up until now she's just been to dentist for check ups, now she's been complaining of pain and her regular dentist (not necessarily a pediatric dentist) suggested that she needs to see a pediatric specialist for dental work of a root canal or two. She's bh not scared of dentists so far and I would wanna keep her that way. Any suggestions of dentist accepting United healthcare community plan and accepting new patients in a kid friendly environment with maybe screens in the room to distract them? I live in Staten Island but Brooklyn would work too.
I saw Dr. Zelman today and was very impressed by his manner and the office staff & promptness.
Im just worried about the amount of work he told me my daughter needs. Her original dentist said she needs some root canals, dr. Zelman took individual xrays of all sides of her mouth and said she basically needs work in all 4 areas of her mouth. Do you find that they're forever finding work that needs to get done in their mouths?
I'm afraid my dentist prior to this was the opposite and never found holes and that's why she needs all this work at once. What's your take on them if you have experience at all
