Experienced Pediatric Dentist in Northern Suburbs..
I am looking for a good, experienced pediatric dentist in the northern suburbs. We live in Blaine and would like to keep it close to home. I need someone that specializes in kids, as my daughter has had a heart transplant and needs some special considerations, and extra patience as anyone in a medical setting now, understandably, terrifies her.
We would love it if they also had late evening and/or weekend appointments.
Can you help me out?

I just took my son to Riverdale Pediatric Dentistry and loved it. He has autism and I was very nervous about it but he did great. I highly recommend them.

One of our preschool parents is a great dentist in New Brighton. Silver Lake Dental. Her name is Teri Snell.
We would use her ourselves if my hubbies family weren't dentists in Elk River-- probably too far for you to drive- and if not- Elk Dental-- great practice too with young fun hygienists which make all the difference to kids! I know they work late on Tuesdays.
And successful transplant for your Daughter Madi- I was just down at Rochester myself for our MN perfusion meeting. I bet one of my friends/colleagues pumped your Daughter's surgery on the heart lung machine. Continued health for her!! along with prayers for a long and happy life.
About me: 49yo perfusionist, wellness coach for nationwide online biggest loser for $$, wife and mom to 8 yo twin girls.

I would highly recommend Riverdale Pediatric Dentistry in Coon Rapids (cavitypatrol.com). The dentists, hygienists, and office staff all specialize in working with children, and it's the most inviting atmosphere you can imagine.

I can tell you where NOT to go. Metropolitan Pediatric Dentist. They call themselves pediatric, but are not good with children. If you want details I can give them.
I am about to try Lake Area Dental(www.aperfectsmile.org) in WBL, and have heard great things about them. Email me if you want to know about them.

Metropolitan Pediatric Dental Associates, Ltd. is a good one. They have a few locations, one being in Shoreview, and maybe Fridley?? K. S.

Our dentist is a family dentist, not a peds specialist, but she's AWESOME with kids! She's big on continuing education and did a major peds rotation this spring.
