Richmond Kids Dentistry
Kids Dentist vis-a-vis Location
When it comes to choosing kids dentist the location is an important criteria. A lesson we learn many years ago that still holds true. When you need to see kid’s dentist, you need to see kid’s dentist period. When the kid is yelling with pain in the middle of the day or school calls you asking you to take the child as he is suffering from acute dental pain, your mind stops working and you can't think or see anything beyond reaching the best kids dental clinic around.
This is the reason location should be given a priority while choosing a dentist. Because as much as a good doctor is important with his qualifications and experience, what is also important is that his clinic is close by.
When we reached Richmond we loved the city at first sight; however our first concern was that we wanted dentist for our kids near where we stayed; or around the school we then went to, so that we could take them to the clinic at shortest possible notice whether the child was in school or at home. Owing to our familiarity with the city we knew we will find a good kids dentist in Richmond however like mentioned earlier, we were very keen on finding someone within our location range to deal with mid night or last moment crises or emergency.
And we found one who is really good, a real gem. His clinic is nearby. Plus when there is an emergency we just need to call him up and he keeps appointment. We rush, he treats our child on priority if he is in too much pain and gives mild medicines if need be. We are really so happy to be in Richmond close to friends and relatives and a dentist like him who listens and understands kids.
Over the years we have also understood that kid’s dentist is not same as dentist. The one who understands kids dental problems and specializes in resolving them is the person you should take you kids dentist to. Not to an adult dentist. Because kids dental problems are peculiar and so are their solutions. Experts needs to do their job. So are the medical equipments, medicines, doses, etc considering the size of their mouth, their age, and teeth is small.
Our kids dentist in Richmond specializes in kids dental health, he knows how to examine kids, how to ask the right questions, how to get our child talking about his problems related to teeth and knows the tact to explain the measures to take for good dental health. That's what makes for kids dentists, not degrees alone!
