Re: So many cavities, so little time.
Like a PP mentioned, many doctors (dentists included) are offered incentives. I have loved both ped dentists my kids have seen and nothing is ever pushed. The one time I took DD to a regular dentist, he 'recommended' lots of treatments. We went to a ped dentist and he said her teeth were just fine, that she'd need braces but not for a long time. I'd go with your gut.
