Hi Everyone!!!
I'm in Roswell, GA and I am willing to drive up to 30 minutes if needed.
I need to take my two sons (2 and 5 yrs old) to the dentist. Anyone have a great dentist they'd refer me to. I'm looking for a kind dentist that is wonderful with smalll children and also, allows me to stay in the rooom.
Thanks bunches!
Judi

Hands down, Dr. Hansen at Pediatric Dental Town in Johns Creek! I'm also in Roswell and it takes me 30 minutes to get there. I love them, can't say enough good things about all of the people there. I have a child who was very fearful of all strangers, and they took so much time and special care with him. He actually enjoys going to the dentist now.

I searched a long time and it's hard to find a dentist who is willing to let you be in with your child during procedures- here, it is just understood that you would never leave your child. And Dr. Hansen is completely open to any questions/concerns. He makes it clear that you as the parent have the final say. I'm nitpicky and make him explain everything, especially any chemicals used in treatments; he has been more than happy to do (or not do) anything I want.

Don't write them off if they don't take your insurance, either; they are out-of-network for us, but their fees are reasonable. We actually ended up paying less out of pocket for ds's major procedure than we would have at another, in-network dentist we saw, and we never pay anything for twice-yearly visits. They can give you an estimate.

Dr. Brown at Kids Dental Spot in Inman Park (Atlanta) did not have any problem with me being in the rooms / wandering around the office and parent choice.

Thanks Kristi!!! I made an appt for my son 4/11. They asked me for who referred me. I don't know your last name to say you gave them a glowing review. Let me know if you'd like me to tell them you referred me.
Hugs and Thanks again!

Also Kristi, I noticed that you have a son born 12/04. My older son Connor was born 12-19-04. We should get our guys together for a playdate. We are often at local playgrounds. Let me know if your free to meet us one afternoon!

Oh good! I'm sure you will love it there. In our experience, they really enjoy and understand kids. If your sons like trains, be sure they see the gazebo with the train table that they can play with while you're waiting.

I'd love to meet you! You should come to Friday playgroup sometime soon-have you seen the North Metro playgroup thread? There are several boys 4-6years old. I think we are out this Friday, but should be back next week. I can't wait for the weather to warm up so we can go to the park every week.
