Can you recommend a dentist? We're in Troy, MI. I'm specifically looking for a non-drill-happy variety of practice (more gentle care if possible.) I'm ready to take our 3yr old for his first appt, and would love to find someone that is also very child friendly, of course! I can't wait to hear you suggestions... thank-you in advance!

Just went to him recently and had a flouride free cleaning! The hygenist was very nice and was telling me about yoga and eating naturally.

They didn't have a cool train like my dentist growing up but they were super friendly and natural :

Happy to be married to DH and SAHM to Brenden (10/16/06) and Jackson (5/3/09)! Expecting baby #3 in July
Homeschooling worked for me!

I finally went to Apple dental in warren, after my family kept telling me too. My family all goes there and they drive 1.5hr to them and they love them. I thought they were really nice too and they said they LOVE seeing children.

Lara, we just started seeing Dr. Rousseau at Maple and Telegraph. It's a holistic practice, no fluoride, they support not vaxing, etc. He is very nice and not pushy. Haven't taken M in yet (yes, I am procrastinating), but the practice came highly recommended by several people as a very good, holistic practice. The number is 248-642-5460.

I hope to see you soon ... we've been homebodies lately ...

Mama to M (7/05) and S (5/08) my surprise !!!

My dh has seen Dr. Nyquist and I have heard good things about him.

I have taken my twins to Dr. Ostroth in Royal Oak (13 mile and Crooks) since we began dental visits when they were around 3.5 yo. The office is fantastic with kids - my son had to have two fillings after his first visit (which came as no surprise to me) - and it was really easy - no restraints, I was in the room, etc. I declined flouride the first time and they've never brought it up again.

I go there too

Oops, forgot to mention that I think I read on a previous thread here that someone took their child to see Rousseau, and they used a laser acupuncture technique to manage pain during a filling I believe, and it worked really well. I might be shaky on the details, but that's the gist of it.

We have used Dr. Rousseau for 2 years now and LOVE him. My daughter had to have a pitted area (not cavity) filled and he used a laser rather than pain medication. She felt NOTHING and it was amazing! : I second everyone who has recommended him. Not enough good things to say!

How does it work to use a laser for pain? Where is the laser directed?
