Re: Pediatric dentist for first timer?
I just took my 3.5 yo to his second dentist appointment. The first time, when he was 3, he cried histerically and the dentist decided to just show him around, take a brief look at his teeth, and then gave him a little present. The second time, I got a cleaning appointment right before my son's, and he saw the dental hygenist ''at work.'' Then the dentist came, he saw my son, and the dental hygenist gave me a complete treatment! I was so happy. The care was great, they were very pacient with my son and very supportive, and took everything one step at a time. We have been going to Dr. Van Dyk's practice for several years now (pre-children) and have always liked him a lot and recommended him to our adult friends, and after taking care of my children I'd be recommending him to our friends with children! He is superb and his team is great! They are located in San Pablo, but to me it's worth the drive (we live in Oakland). Here is the info: Dr. Van Dyk 2089 Vale Rd., Suite 30 San Pablo, CA 94806 (510) 236-1662 - Eva

Re: Severe fear of going to the dentist
I don't know if our dentist specializes in treating people with dental phobia but I know he is the kindest, nicest dentist I've ever found. When I had my wisdom tooth removed I developed dry sockets and he called up on me (he did not remove the tooth, he referred me to someone else who specialized in that) and always offered TONS of comfort. His staff is also extremely nice and accomodating. They always makes us feel very comfortable --or as comfortable as one can be in a dentist office ;-) If you'd like to contact him, here is his practice info:
