I saw on the news tonight that the pediatric dentist we use has been accused of child molesting. I’m a wreck and don’t know what to do. How do I know if he touched my child? He doesn’t let parents go back so I don’t know what happened.
To the worried mom,
I understand your fear, but I can’t tell you what happened between your child and the dentist. Your best bet is to talk to your child and he police and ask their advice.
I will tell you most pediatric dentists go into the field because they truly care about children and are perfectly safe.
When it comes to going back to the operatory with your child in the future, go with your gut. If you feel something isn’t right, then it may not be. tell the dentist you’re uncomfortable. Either they’ll let you back in or you can take your child to a different dentist.
