I am looking for a good pediatric dentist in Orange County. We are in central OC (Tustin) but would be willing to drive. Especially looking for a dentist that does not routinely use fluoride treatments, but maybe they don't exist? Do any of you have recommendations for a dentist you/your kids like? thanks!
Not only did I use to work for this pediatric dentist but I continue to take my children to Dr. Suarez in Aliso Viejo. I like her bedside manners and truly trust her work! In regards to fluoride, all you have to do is request not to have it, although I don't understand why parents opt not to have this. I make the drive to her office from Orange because I trust her conservativeness!
Last year we switched from our old pediatric dentist who we had for about 5 years after much disappointment with him. We pay cash for all our dental care, and I felt like he was just ignoring things at the early stage to bill more later for more extensive treatments.
I am fully happy with the quality of care and honesty at our new dental practice. I feel like we are on the same wavelength of preventive care rather than letting teeth go bad in order to have something to fix. This dentist is skilled, excellent with my boys, and very likable. He is in Old Town Orange, Eduardo Correa, DDS (orangekidsdental.com).
