Drove across town for baby's first dental appt. (@ My Kids Dentist). After filling out paperwork and waiting a good while, was refused a simple (visual) exam for my 14 month old! Their excuse...He'd be endangering their staff! irked.gif They weren't helpful/understanding, or apologetic at all. 

 

Any other non-vax parents have a good dentist anywhere in Cobb county (GA)?

 

Has been truly stressful trying to find anyone to see my son, even with an exemption form. It pisses me off, bcuz it's really all about their own personal liability/insurance, and has nothing to do with the welfare of the child! I'd be willing to sign extra forms, not holding them responsible, but they don't ever offer that option. They just treat me like I'm somehow 'unfit'. 

 

I found some great testimonials online for Dr.Kute (peditrician) She said she'd be more then willing to have him as a patient! A big relief, and grateful!

HI. I believe you want to post this in your local tribe so that some local mamas can help you out. Here's the link:

Hi,   sorry about your trouble with the dentist!  I have never even had a dentist ask about our imm. status.  Never even thought of them doing that.  Maybe since we go to a family dentist and not a pediatric one?  Good luck with your new one.

I would look for a holistic dentist. They may be more apt to not get their panties in a bunch about vax status. Not sure where Cobb Co is - is that near Atlanta or Norcross?
