I looked for a pediatric dentist for a looong time before we got a referral for one that we like! There are a whole lot of them out there who refuse to even let you in the treatment room.
The one we think is super is Dr. Hansen
. He's not really near you. He's not really near me, either, but we're more than happy to drive there. He and especially his hygienists were so excellent with my fearful son.
I can't say whether he takes BCBS, you'll have to call. I will say that he doesn't take our insurance, Aetna, and our cost to pay the out of network charges is going to end up the same as we'd have paid at another dentist we saw, who DID take our insurance. We found Dr. Hansen's fees to be very reasonable.
He encourages using and also sells xylitol products, which is a nice change from the 'fluoride as the end-all, be-all' thing most dentists go with. And I found that he was more than willing to follow whichever treatment plan I felt comfortable with. He kept saying that everything is up to us and whatever we want to do- that may sound obvious, but it's *not* the attitude we got from other dentists I checked into!
