  • Has your child had problems with freaking out about dental work before? If not, I would decline the sedatives.

  • My daughter has her first Dentist appt in August. She's 4. They are a pediatric dentist office and they only do what the child will let them do. They will do a cleaning, and take X-rays if the child will allow it.
