2. You May Not Have Seen A Pediatric Dentist
Did you know that anyone can call themselves a “children’s dentist” or a “family dentist” even if they aren’t a board-certified pediatric dentist?
It’s true. And while these dentists can provide great care for kids, they may not offer the same range of treatments as a pediatric dentist, and they won’t have as much specialized knowledge about children’s dentistry.
So if you want a second opinion about your child’s dental health, we highly recommend you see a board-certified pediatric dentist like Dr. Alex.
3. You May Be Able To Explore More Treatment Options For Your Child
In most cases, there’s no “one-size-fits-all” solution for dental care. For example, if your child has a cavity, they may be able to get treatment with a filling, a dental crown, or even SDF (silver diamine fluoride). Or, if the cavity is really small, your dentist may simply choose to monitor it and apply a fluoride treatment to strengthen the tooth.
Because of this, seeing a dentist like Dr. Alex for a second opinion lets you explore more treatment options for your little one. Having more options is always a good thing!
4. Getting A Second Opinion Can Save You Money
Finally, one of the most important reasons to get a second opinion is that it can save you money. If your original dentist recommends a treatment that isn’t necessary or isn’t appropriate for your child, you may end up spending a lot of money on treatment that you don’t really need.
But by getting a second opinion at Kids Tooth Team, you can avoid this and make sure you’re not overpaying for pediatric dental care in Buda and South Austin.
