Does anyone have any suggestions for a good pediatric dentist near College Park, MD? My DS is 2.5 and I have been putting this off way too long. He's not good with new situations or strangers, so I need someone patient and flexible. A low-stimulus environment (i.e. not crammed with weird equipment and busy people like my dentist's office) would be awesome. TIA!
Urgh, I had a long reply all written out and it got deleted! I've taken my kids to 2 places and they have both been very good for different reasons.
Don't have contact info on hand, but they are easily google-able.
Bethesda Dental Specialties- Drs. Etessami, Hickory, et al very kid-friendly, big fishtank in waiting room, toys, bathroom w/ changing table, very friendly staff with low key approach. My son even had to get several cavities filled and he was ok. On East-West highway in downtown Bethesda.
Dr. Henry King- off of Rt. 29 and the beltway- super gentle, calm, friendly husband and wife team. They have grandkids and have a wonderful, positive approach. They don't take insurance, but I've had no problem submitting the form for 100% reimbursement.
Hope you find someone good!
