I hope it is ok to post this. I turn to mothering.com often for advice and support, but I rarely post on the forums. I need some help from some like minded mamas. My 20 month old daughter has cavities on her 4 front teeth. Today a dentist told me she should stop nursing right away. Because she is too small for sedation I have to go back in 3 months for another check, at that time they will either fill the cavities under oral sedation or consider general anesthesia. I do not want her in a hospital under general anesthesia for this. As far as oral sedation goes- the dentist didn't know which drugs they would use when I asked, which seems very odd to me, and she said I can't be in the room during the procedure. I feel very uncomfortable about all of this and would love any recommendations anyone might have for AP friendly/crunchy dentists anywhere around Philadelphia or the western suburbs. Thank you.
