DeltaCare USA dentist for 7 year old?
Does anyone have a positive, kid experience with one of these dentists below? My very active 7 y.o. son needs some cavities filled for baby teeth.
We've gone to Aloha and POW Dental for cleanings but their costs for fillings are high. If we want dental coverage for our kid under Kaiser, we're restricted to using these providers under the extremely limited Deltacare USA network. We can't access the broader Delta Dental network nor see a pediatric dentist unless referred by one of these providers.
We're new to Kaiser as of March 2019 and new to Berkeley as of Aug 2018. Initially I was pleased for pediatric dental coverage but so far the customer experience with Delta Dental has been really disappointing to say the least. 3 offices just told me they're not accepting new patients (one hasn't accepted in 3 years); I deleted from the list below. Caution to anyone considering Kaiser who's also attracted by this so called benefit.
