I always HATED the dentist when I was little. ( I SWEAR mine was a Nazi in hiding here in the US)

He never believed in using anesthetics on children, saying they didn't feel pain the same way adults did, and somehow my parents believed this was true?!

Needless to say I was hesitent to bring my children to dentists.. but I perservered, because I was an "educated" mom. Yeah, right.

But my older daughter got an ear infection with EVERY baby tooth, so she was evaluated by a pediatric dentist at the age of 15 months, when the molars came in...

I was amazed that these guys even existed!!

My second daughter was first seen at the age of 18 months, and needed a root canal between ther front teeth, where she had a cavity at the gum-line in back that I never saw... Poor baby ( poor Mommy!!!)

But as I said, thank G-d for pediatric dentists!!
