Your kids need a dentist, but they don’t have to see a pediatric dentist.  One dentist I trusted told me any dentist could care for children, but if the child was scared and not doing well at a family practice they should go to a pediatric dentist.  I’m not an expert, but that seemed like solid advice to me.  So basically it’s your call. With that in mind, here are the pediatric dentists recommended by area moms:
