Connecting moms in Polk County, Fla.
Call me naive, or maybe misinformed, but I've never heard of a child dying at a Dentist's office before. Of course, when you consider any type of anesthetic, there is a risk of allergy or complications, but wow, the below, recent story has me rethinking what I might agree to at a Dentist.
This is the recent story,
Family Mourns Death of Cedar Key Boy
When I did a google search, this isn't the first time death has come at a dentist office for a child :(
Young girl dies during dental procedure
2-YEAR-OLD DIES AFTER OPERATION IN DENTAL OFFICE
Girl, 2, dies after routine visit to the dentist
Children Dying In Dental Chair
The list, I am sure, is longer than we care to see, but some of these stories can be real lessons for us. One story is of a girl who chokes on her own pulled tooth.
By no means will I go without dental care for my kiddos but an expert Dentist with a gorgeous past history just became more important to me.
Do you have good children dental recommendations? Have you had less than stellar performance at a dentist's office with a family member?
I take Alexis to Dr. Yaserbi, she's a pediatric dentist over off Edgewood. I love their office, very kid friendly, has video games and regular games, the back area has sinks and animals with teeth they use to show children (and parents) how to brush their teeth properly. She also has a website and is on facebook.
