Hi! I'm looking for a recommendation for a dental office in the Boston area (ideally in or near Lexington, Arlington, Winchester, Woburn, Burlington, or Cambridge). I may need to get some dental work done in the next year or so, and I'm not really liking my dentist these days. I'm hoping my new dentist won't use amalgum fillings. Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

the dentists i used were not in those areas, but in Dorchester. but i will tell you that i still saw them for 3 years after moving to NH (still worked in boston) b/c i couldnt/woudlnt find a new dentist up here.<br>
they are a very small dentist office...a husband and wife establishment but i absolutely loved them. i saw the husband more but my son saw the wife more...dont know if it was when i had appts. scheduled or if that is the way they do it.<br>
i dont have the #'s right now but the names are Drs. Lee in Dorchester MA. ill try to post their # later today.<br>

Rachel, thanks for the referral. I don't mind a bit of a drive if I know they're good. I'm going to check them out. Thanks again! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Hi just thought I would share info with you. I'm from the worcester county area and my children and I go to Dr Burtton and Dr Hariawalla in Newton Center off of Grant ave. They don't use amalgum filling and will not use floride if you ask them not to. Very nice people working there. My 3 year old loves to go.<br><br>
Good Luck<br>

Tim Smith in Roslindale (or it may be West Roxbury, not sure where they change over) is just THE BEST dentist, and is great with kids too. I always reccomend him and everyone loves him! Easy parking too, for if you are driving.

Thank you all very much for your responses. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> I thought I'd try one more time to see if anyone could suggest a dentist in the Arlington, Lexington, Burlington, Cambridge, Winchester, or Woburn area. I am totally fine with traveling to wherever's necessary to see a good dentist, but my DH would prefer one that's more convenient. I think I need to get a filling replaced, and the one I currently have is amalgum and I'm freaking out a bit about getting it removed while nursing. I want a dentist that I can trust that's not going to try and convince me that amalgum is harmless (like my current dentist is doing). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Thank you all for your help!

I love my dentist, Seymour Andrus in Central Square, Cambridge. His phone # is 617-491-0943. I'm not sure about fillings though since I've never had one. I've been going to him for 10 years or so and my husband has seen him for even longer.

Hi Golden,<br><br>
I don't know why I've been so lucky. I'm 33. I'm not really a tooth brushing fanatic or anything and both my parents have had a lot of cavities.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I know it's farther out there for you, but I thought I'd throw this in for everyone else<br>
Dr Novak in North Attleboro<br>
She is russian and she is fantastic!!! I am a huge BABY when it comes to teeth, I can barely tolerate a cleaning, and she is super nice, friendly, blah blah blah. Another great find! Her whole staff is super nice and awesoem, I have been going for years and have successfully recommended several families.

My 5yo has been twice to Dr. Renu Maewall in Wellesley. She is very gentle and calm. We really like her. In fact, we are all switching to her as she sees adults too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> We found her through a friend who said she is breastfeeding knowledgeable, etc. She raved about Dr. Maewall. Don't know if Wellesley is too far but...<br><br>
Her info is:<br>
Renu Maewall, DMD - General Dentist<br>
358 Washington Street<br>
Wellesley, MA 02481<br>
Ph: 781-235-7399<br><br>
On the no cavities deal, my husband has not a single filling. Never a cavity. Perfect teeth. Before he met me he had, at one point, not seen a dentist for 10yrs. Maybe that has something to do with it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"><br>
I, on the other hand, have been to too many dentists and have the teeth to show for it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
