I took both my boys to her for a routine cleaning hoping it would be a good experience considering the nightmare they had just experienced at this place in Gainesville but it was horrible!! Both my boys told me she was mean to them by telling them to shut up and quit acting like babies! And the worse part was they told me my oldest needed some sealants but when the girl asked if I wanted them to go ahead and do his sealant on a certain tooth I said sure. Well 5 mins later she comes out asking if I wanted them to use gas? I was confused because sealants don't hurt. So I told her no it should not be necessary. Then when he was done he came out holding his mouth and almost in tears! I for to talking to him on the way home and he started describing to me what they did and it was not a sealant!!.. I called them when I got home and they said oh I'm so sorry they did a filling instead of a sealant. I apologize they said and needless to say I went up there and in front of everybody I raised hell!! How do you get a sealant and a filling confused?? Really! So yeah they will never go back. Also come to find out she said my youngest had a cavity but when I took them to their new dentist they told them he did not have a cavity!! Seems like she is fishing for money and could care less about your kids dental health. Really scary!
Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
