we're in west seattle & had a good experience w/ Dr. Christine Kirchner at the Morgan Junction - California & Fauntleroy next to Blockbuster. I had to pry my 4 yo ds out of the car & they let him sit on my lap in the dentist chair which I appreciated - didn't have to fight for it or anything. I'v heard that some don't let the parent even go back. they were gentle getting him out of the waiting area to the chair - and had good tactics with him while in the chair - & he got to hold a hue stuffed snake the whole time. he got to explore the tools & pick flavors, etc...overall a good experiece.
