I found this odd.. I have a new Dentist for my kids (a pediatric one) and when I went to schedule a cleaning appointment they don't want to take my kids together (or one after each other). They want the 5 year old to come in the am and the 9 yr old to come in the afternoon. I'm like, what? It's not a waiting list issue. They can fit in 2 kids, they just don't take both ages at once. Now my 6 year old is a very good patient -- if you know what I mean... doesn't cry with shots, etc. and he has been to the dentist numerous times with no problem. I don't work, but if I did, I would really resent having to take off two different times to take my kids for their cleanings separately. Our old dentist's first concern was getting them in together.
Do your kids dentists do this or can you bring the kids in for cleaning all at once? I'm kind of put off by this and am thinking of trying someone else. What do you think? Am I missing something?
