Re: the dentist... (my poor I the most horrible mommy ever?)

Yeah I think maybe this has been so hard for me b/c I never had cavities as a kid so I just keep thinking cavities as a kid = bad mommy. I know in the long run it's not the end of the world b/c these are baby teeth anyway, it's just the short-term pain I don't want my daughter to go through.

I also wonder if maybe the family dentist's laid-back approach is more my style. I'm all for preventative measures when they're definitely necessary but struggle with doing things for the sake of doing them. I trust medical professionals to make professional decisions that take the child into account and HOPE that everything is being done with my daughter's best interest in mind.
