Tooth doctor?

Now that my girls' pearly whites are finally making their appearance, I think it's time that I take them to see the tooth doctor. Soooo, I am looking for any recommendations for pediatric dentists in the Orem/Provo area. Thanks!

How old is your daughter? Most pediatric dentist won't see a child until they are at least two, more often three and then they just have you come in, count their teeth while doing a quick visual to make sure things look good, and then do a quick brushing with a normal tooth brush. The positive is the kid leaves with good feelings about the dentist and three or four treats out of the dentist treasure chest. The negative is who can they justify charging 100 bucks for that :)

I don't know how old you have to be, but I always liked going to Dr. Hill in Orem. He's on State St. and like 200N (the medical building just north of Staples). My family started going there when I was like 8 or 9 when we moved back to Orem and stayed there until they moved to Oregon a couple years ago. Again, I don't know how old they want their patietnts to be.

My daughters = twins = are almost a year and a half. That's interesting about the age limit; all I've ever heard is that it's essential that you get your chillins to the dentist within 6 months of their first tooth.

Thanks for the info!
