Polk Moms

Connecting moms in Polk County, Fla.

I know there have been lots and lots and lots of discussions about pediatric dentists in Lakeland. I just wanted to share something that I learned recently since it always seems to come up in these conversations (and because I didn't want to comment on all of the other threads with the same information).

We recently had someone from Dr. Erin's office come and speak to our MOPS group about helping children develop good dental habits. He said that, despite what they had originally planned to do, she now allows parents to come back into the treatment area with their children.

This was a huge relief to many of our MOPS moms so I wanted to make sure other people knew about it too. To the best of my knowledge, she is now the only pediatric dentist in Polk County who allows this.

Now, if only they would take my child's insurance so we could to there!

Dr. Berling is the only pediatric dentist in my network right now. I took my daughter there to be evaluated because her previous dentist found a cavity and also said she should have two teeth pulled. After talking with Dr. Berling, we opted to hold off on the teeth pulling, but she also saw the cavities, so we went back to have them filled. I really liked the office and the front desk staff is very friendly. It is smaller and not too crowded which is a nice change. I was surprised that I was allowed to go in the back room with my daughter too!   

You threw me off by calling her Dr. Berling! :) I'm glad you had a good experience there and have heard lots of similar stories.

Jennifer, 

Thank you so much for the kind words about our office and the presentation we did for the MOPS group. I had a great time talking with you all and throughly enjoyed the questions that your group brought to the table! It was great to see a group of young parents that are interested in their children's dental health, especially one that would let me ramble on for an hour :) We would be happy to come back anytime to discuss further topics or do a small refresher in a couple of years for the new members that join.
