Can anyone recommend a good gentle dentist? Not a pediatric one.. I am in SW Austin, but will travel to central or north Austin if I need to. Thanks. J.

I am very picky about dentists after having a really bad experience. I found Ashley Strickland in Buda (Buda Dental) after my 6 month old son almost knocked his tooth out. She checked him out late on a friday. She is not a pediatric dentist, but she saved me a trip to the emergency room. Then I decided to go and see her for my teeth. I really like her, very kind and professional.

We love our dentist, Dr. Brian Friedell. We had been going to him for about 7 years and can't imagine going anywhere else. My 8 yr old daughter loves him. She had a horrible experience with another dentist and was terrified to go to any dentist at all. But Dr. Friedell and his staff always make her at ease and now she enjoys going to the dentist. My 14 yr old loves him as well. His office is located in central Austin, near the Central Market on N. Lamar.

Melanie Babot. ###-###-####. She does specialize in kids but is not listed as a pediatric dentist. Give her a call if you don't want to see her, she knows many good dentists and could recommend one, but I know many people in the dripping springs area that love her as does my daughter and I.

Hi J.,
We've had the same dentist for the past 8 years, and we love him and his staff. His name is Dr. Richard Butcher, and his practice is called Lake Pointe Dental. They are off of Bee Caves Road (FM 2244) about 2 miles east of 71. From SW (Circle C area), it takes me about 20-25 minutes, depending on traffic. Their phone # is ###-###-####. His hygenist are so great with my kids; my youngest has been getting his teeth cleaned there since he was 3! I highly recommend them.

I like Dr James Mcgee on So. Lamar, across from Sun Harvest.
I started there 9 years ago when I was pregnant and needed a root canal. They were ok with me using my homeopathics and going easy on their gas/pain killers.

Drs. David Carr and Bryan Smith are off of Far West Blvd. but are worth the trip central/north. My husband and I have been going to Dr. Carr (Dr. Smith is a new partner and still just as gentle) for almost 20 years and now four of our children go to him. We've had excellent care and their upbeat personalities always lift our spirits for the day. Make sure the receptionist knows you want a gentle hygenist...they are great about making sure you get the care you need.

Once I needed a filling replaced and Dr. Carr was numbing my mouth. He was talking to me and massaging the inside of my cheek and I said...just let me know when you are going to put the needle in...He said, "I'm already finished!" I didn't even feel it... :)
