"Awesome. I was so afraid for my 6 year old. His first dentist basically told us my son should be sedated and only performed 1 filling. Dr.
" assured me he would try to perform a regular treatment without sedation. I insisted on doing 1 of 3 teeth needed bc my son had failed another time with dr. Xxxx. He was so patient with my son when he got finicky. He stopped and assured my son he was there to help him and to sit still and he would be fine. Shortly after I was amazed, he did all 3 teeth at once. I looked him in the eye and told him.... I drove from Tampa for you. Thank you for being patient with him. He nearly had me crying bc my heart was so happy that he has a positive soul.

Pediatric Dentists

Pediatric dentists can catch and treat tooth problems at a young age, making it less likely for the problems to worsen as your child gets older.

Hello, this is Kyle K from the Member Care Department.

I apologize for my delay. We encourage healthcare providers to list the insurances they accept when creating their Angie’s List profile. At this time however, many providers have not completed this section, or the information wasn't available when Angie's List created their listing.
 
I encourage you to visit your insurance provider's website, as many offer search tools to find local healthcare providers. You can then cross-reference these with Angie's List. We’re happy to help look up these individual providers for you, too.
 
I am sorry I could not answer your question directly, but I hope this information was helpful.

Hi Elizabeth,
 
This is Sarah B. in Member Care. I'm happy to help!
 
I was able to find several rated Eye Care Surgeons. For your current need though, our Snapfix specialists would also be able to do all of the dialing for you, match you up with a top rated provider and arrange to have them call you to figure out the logistics. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please fill out the form in the link below and our Snapfix Team will take it from there!

If you would like to reach out to these providers yourself, please let me know. I’d be happy to send these to you.  No matter which option you choose, I hope you’ll take the time to fill out a review when everything is done.
 
If you would like information on additional providers through this forum, please let us know. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at memberservices@angieslist.com. We're happy to help, Elizabeth!

Pediatric Dentistry reviews in Altoona

My kids absolutely LOVE coming to the dentist thanks to the awesome staff at
Altoona Pediatric Dentists Provider Name Locked
. Honestly, as soon as we're done with one appointment, they're disappointed to know that we aren't returning for another six months! My kids enjoy playing in the hut in the waiting room, then going to the back and see which color boat (chair) they get for their checkup. The dental assistants take care of all three of my kids at once so I'm not there for hours. All-in-all, it takes about 45 minutes for us to get checked it, checked up, and checked out. Oh, and the

bag and temporary tattoos they offer are also a huge bonus for my kids. Thanks

Dr.
Altoona Pediatric Dentists Provider Name Locked
was rude and condescending, going on and on about how my grandson "pitched a fit" the first time he attempted treatment and how "he must have learned that somewhere", when in fact my grandson does not throw fits at all. This was his first experience with a painful dental treatment.
This practice was not set up , in any way, for small children. There was nothing to divert their attention or focus on something pleasant. He had no bedside manner or way to connect with a small child. He told me not to talk to my grandson to calm him down, as I went back with him since he reportedly "threw such a fit" the first time my daughter took him.
I took all my children, as small children, to

,

who had a pediatric dentistry practice and Dr.
Altoona Pediatric Dentists Provider Name Locked
's practice was NOTHING like that. There was no decor that would engage a child, the room provided for treatment was an adult treatment room. It was scary looking to me, so I can't imagine what a child would think and I do not have dental phobia.
Overall, he was rude, trying to cow me with comments, until he learned that I had worked for a preeminent orthodontist and currently work for a large health network then his demeanor changed slightly.
He was overbearing, rude, and should not be practicing on small children. We will never return to that practice and the only reason we attended the second appointment was my daughter had already paid for the new patient appointment and changing to another provider would have extended treatment for my grandson and cost her another new patient visit somewhere else. In hindsight, however, that would have been a better choice. This appointment cost $589.00 for two small fillings, two sealants and oral sedation and nitrous oxide. This was a terrible experience.

We were extermely pleased with the service we recieved from Dr
Altoona Pediatric Dentists Provider Name Locked
and the staff. My son wasn't cooperating for the full teeth cleaning and they were very kind and accomodating to that. We went forward with the exam and they assured me it is normal at the first visit or 2 for children to not want to have the cleaning. I loved that they went over all the tools with my son to show him what they were and let him touch and hold them to see that they weren't scary. I would recommend Dr

Terrific! We met w/ Dr.
Altoona Pediatric Dentists Provider Name Locked
and his friendly staff for a first routine cleaning.
Everything started out on the right foot because they had a great play area for little ones in the front office area. We weren't waiting around with nothing for my toddler to do. She enjoyed the slide and the opportunity for large motor skill play time.
Dr.
Altoona Pediatric Dentists Provider Name Locked
was clear and patient. He explained everything to me beforehand, and the time went reasonably well once our toddler was getting the exam, cleaning, etc. I was very pleased and relieved to have found such good care here. They really know how to help children feel comfortable.

Everything from the procedure to the billing went off without a hitch. Everything was explained up front, including how much my insurance would cover and how much I would have to pay. And most importantl, my child did great with the procedure and the results look great. Everyone in the office is so friendly and cheerful and the office is so cheerfully decorated and kid friendly.

Beautiful new office, very fun for the kids! High tech, state-of-the-art equipment. Very nice, friendly staff. Prices are high, but then again you are paying for the beautiful facilities and high tech equipment. During our first appointment there, my son, who has special-needs, was very upset. Because of this, the visit was a little bit chaotic and the dentist did not introduce herself to me. During our second appointment I also did not meet the dentist. It is disappointing to me that we have been there two times, spent an incredible amount of money there and I have yet to meet the dentist. Also, my son's appointment for the x-rays was specifically set up with a dental assistant who is good with special needs children. When someone from the office called to confirm the appointment they offered me an earlier appointment time. However what I did not realize is that this earlier appointment time was not with the assistant who is good with special needs children. The x-rays ended up being extremely traumatic for him, partly because the dental assistant who worked with us was not as well trained with special needs children. They should never have offered me that earlier appointment knowing that my son has special needs. This is something that should've been in his chart.
