Can anyone rec a great pediatric dentist in Fairbanks? I went to Dr Higgins when Orion chipped a tooth 2 yrs ago, but he didn't want me to come in with Orion--and Orion was under the age of one! I mean, you just need your mama sitting there with you until you're maybe 3 or 4. And he was very anti-BF. So we need a new dentist...

TIA

We like O'donoghue. He's pricey but he gets a lot of natural concepts so the tug of war isn't there. He has I think 4 kids of his own. He's very prevention focused. We went for a 2 yr check and were happy - he did it w ds1 on my lap.

O'Donoghue has 4 hs'd wonderful kids. He's also anti-flouridated water, and very intelligent and well-read.

We see Dr. Tanner (his offices are called Gentle Dental). They kind of giggled at me years ago when I requested to be asked before they did fluoride treatments on my kids (I don't allow them), and I told them I *always* want to approve any X-rays (so they aren't routine...the kids don't always need them, IMHO), and that I want their thyroids covered during x-rays. Now they're used to me and my silly ways.

He's a great dentist, and sees a ton of kids, takes Denali Kid Care and sees a lot of special needs kids. He also has 4 kids of his own and is a hockey dad.

Why do you see Tanner instead of O'donoghue?

To my knowledge, O'D doesn't accept DKC. He's pretty pricey.

Plus, his wife and kids are family friends, and it would just be awkward.
