Free Second Opinions – Why Do I Need One?

1. Not All Dentists Use The Same Approach To Dental Care

At Kids Tooth Team, Dr. Alex practices conservative dentistry, which means that she will always recommend the least-invasive treatments for your child. For example, she will never suggest a dental crown when a simple filling will be enough to treat a cavity.


Not all dentists do this, especially dentists that work for larger, franchise practices. Now, we’re not suggesting that these dentists are trying to rip you off, but they may not provide the same level of personalized care as Dr. Alex, and this can result in unnecessary dental treatments.

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.

Get A Free Second Opinion For Your Child’s Dental Care At Kids Tooth Team!

We offer free second opinions at Kids Tooth Team. If you think your current dentist may not have diagnosed your child’s issue properly or you just want to explore your options in more detail, you can call us or contact us online for a free, no-commitment consultation at our Buda office or our South Austin office.

Before you come into our office, get in touch with your current dentist to get a copy of your child's dental records. Dr. Alex will examine your child’s dental records, x-rays, and their oral health, and provide you with the guidance you need to choose the right treatment for their situation.
