When Taking Your Kids to the Dentist

I told my friend, Lesley, that I was going to take a leaf out of her book and post about this!  We recently had a friend who took her daughter to the dentist; and her daughter was restrained without her knowledge or permission!!!

NEVER leave your child alone at the dentist’s office!!!  Always insist on being present with them.  If you’re not allowed to be with your child, then take your child and leave!

Here’s some links on the types of restraints that dentists are using–basically a straight-jacket for kids called a “papoose.”
