Hi! My daughter has had some not so good dentists. And she already is sensitive about her teeth. So now she has some dentist anxiety. We really need a nice dentist who will be patient with her when filling her cavities, and let me hold her hand. During her last dental appointment, the dentist was literally throwing things at the trash can, in anger, because she didnt want him to bother her loose tooth. A grown man/professional dentist acting like that! I really appreciate any suggestions to help us find a dentist who has patience with children who have dental anxiety. Thank you!!!!!

A bit of a hike for you, but after trying two other pediatric dentists for my girls (one autistic and one with major dental anxiety) today we visited Pediatric Dental Town in Suwanee (they also have an office in Cumming). http://pediatricdentaltown.com/  The website seems to be down right now, grr, but it is set up like a tiny town. SO kid friendly. And Dr. Hansen and all of the employees were amazing and understanding.
