Hi Tashablueyes,

So how are general dentists as opposed to pediatric dentists. We have general dentists at the Arizona Tooth Doctors for Kids office here in Globe. Thats where I took my daughter. The anesthesia still bothers me. I remember when I was a kid they didnt use general anesthesia. Just oragel and a needle of novacaine. I dont mind the dentist for myself. Never did. To be blunt, I dont want my daughter to die in a dentists chair! There I said it. Logically I know the risks are nil, but the mom in me.....

So, what about no general anesthesia just oragel and novacaine. It was good enough for me and I still have a mouth full of fillings.

Thanks for the info, Jackie
