so my dd has to get some dental work done, fillings. we took her in and they were going to give her the laughing gas. (she is 5 and absolutely terrified of the dentist, needles, doctors, any thing like that.) so she doesn't cooperate well. they began to tell me their plans before starting anything, this is their plan of action: the dentist wanted to restrain her before even starting the laughing gas! i don't understand how restraining a child is going to help calm them! then they told me that if she still wouldn't calm down after being restrained and getting the laughing gas they would ask me to leave the room! so what they can pin her down and hold her mouth opened while they fill 4 teeth and extract 1?! i don't think so! well, we ended up leaving and getting a referal for a surgical dentist who will fully put her out for the procedure. and i won't be taking my dd to this dentist anymore! what would you have done?
