Re: Dental misery
Oh, dear. You do sound miserable, and rightly so!

I have what I think will be a *wonderful* option for you: my dentist, Dr. Scott McKinzie, who is on Grand Ave on the Piedmont/Oakland border (walkable distance for you!)

Not only is Dr. McKinzie kind and gentle, his wife, Kate, runs the office and she is a true gem of a person. She has an amazing memory, and will therefore always remember you (at least she always remembers myself and my husband). Here is their info: 931 Grand Ave (between Boulevard Way & Jean St) Oakland, CA 94610 (510) 654-3030

BTW, I would recommend requesting their female hygenist (I forget her name, but it is slightly unusual, so hopefully Kate will know who you mean). She has provided me with THE MOST gentle cleanings I've *ever* had.

I think you'll be happy. Good luck to you!

Re: Dentist for teen who has outgrown his pediatric dentist
I highly recommend Dr. Scott Mckinzie. He and his staff are awesome! After having several bad experiences at Pleasant Valley Dental in Oakland, I found Dr. Scott (on Grand Avenue near Ace Hardware). He is the best dentist I've ever known - very caring and patient, actually makes a dental appointment a pleasant experience. His phone number is 510.654.3030 and he has a web site Can't say enough good about him! Lorraine
