Re: Pediatric dentist recommendation?
Dr. Ngo at Alameda Pediatric Dentisty (also in Pleasanton) is absolutely wonderful. Warm, highly skilled, and flexible about parent concerns and preferences. She is the best! Miriam

Re: Recommendations for Dentists
Alameda Pediatric Dentistry in Alameda is tops. They have been in business for over 30 years. Dr. Perry was just named BEST pediatric dentist by Parents'Press. All the dentists have special training in caring for kids, including those with special needs and are excellent at communicating with children. The entire office is family oriented and understanding, plus kids love playing with the games and activities while waiting to be seen. You can find out more about the practice at:http://www.alamedapediatricdentistry.com Miriam
Re: Family dentist for children
We love our pediatric dentist. She is in Alameda at Pediatric Family Dentistry. Her name is Dr. Gno, and she has the top credentials, is kind, warm, interested in your child, highly skilled, and flexible.
I really like Dr. Ngo in Alameda at Alameda Pediatrics. She is kind, very knowledgable, and takes the time to do the best job possible. The office can be kind of busy, but I think she is a very good choice.
Re: Looking for Good Dentist in Berkeley Oakland area
Try Alameda Pediatric Dentistry. We took my now 2 1/2 year old there when she chipped her front tooth. She saw Dr. Perry, who actually used to be MY pediatric dentist 25+ yrs ago when he was just starting out. He's kind, gentle, extremely knowledgable, and UCSF-trained. I'd recommend him to anyone.

When we had to take my son to a dentist for the first time because of a bad fall that affected his mouth, I called Dr. Fong and he recommened Dr. Perry in Alameda (there's a lot of recommendations for Dr. Perry in the BPN archives). Your two year old is NOT going to lie willingly in the dentist chair, and at Dr. Perry's office they have a way for you to gently hold your child in your lap so they can look in his/her mouth to make it less traumatic. Plus the dentist and assistants have routines to help calm the children. You go early and get to play with your child in the open dentist office where your child can watch other kids getting their teeth checked out, play with toys, etc. so they are more at ease when it's their turn. For the younger kids that will probably cry, there are private rooms. My son still likes to be held versus laying on the table, but when we just took him a couple of months ago he didn't cry, and he actually enjoys going to the dentist because of the toys and finds it calming to play with other kids while he's there. anon
Re: Dentist good with toddlers who accepts CIGNA
We have CIGNA dental and use Alameda Pediatric Dentistry. They are excellent with toddlers. My 2 1/2 year old just had 2 fillings, and didn't cry at all during the procedure. They have videos, toys, books etc. Everyone there has been great, and others I know who use them have had the same experience. Good luck! draemel
Re: Pediatric dentist for first timer?
Go to Alameda Pediatric Dentristy in (obviously) Alameda! They are absolutely awesome! Son with Happy Teeth!
There are various posting regarding pediatric dentists. I think David Perry in Alameda is fantastic. I live in El Cerrito and he's worth the drive! His office is so kid friendly. It's one big open room with various dental stations. There are all sorts of games and toys for the kids to play with and you are asked to come early so your kid can hang out, play and get relaxed. It's like going to the park.
We went when my son was 1 yo and had a bad fall that affected his gums. In that case since we were going to have to restrain him and he was going to cry no matter what, they put us in a nice private room. We went back when he was 2 there was no problem; he was good through the exam so he could get back out to the main room and play. anon
Can anyone recommend a fantastic pediatric dentist in Alameda or near? I have read the reviews on the site and was just wondering if there are any more recent ones. Thank you. anon
Re: Worried first dentist visit will be traumatic
I highly recommend Dr. David Perry - or any of his associates - at Alameda Pediatric Dentistry. It's a bit of a hike for us, we live in Oakland, but worth the trip. They would NEVER strap a child down to clean teeth. In fact, they do everything they can to make the dentist a fun and enjoyable place to be. Be prepared to stay awhile, because they let the kids play and wander in their spacious offices and kind of let the cleaning and exam happen organically as the child seems comfortable. They will LOVE going to the dentist, as my now 4 Y.O. truly does! Happy Mom
We talked about the dentist alot before then and even read some books to her. The visit couldn't have gone better. The office was totally geared for children of all ages. The setting was very open and I got to be with her the whole time. I was so pleased with every aspect of the visit. Give the office a call.

I just came back from a dentist that I was referred to by Dr. Wampler. His name is Dr. Perry in Alameda. I was hoping someone had some additional recommendations for Dr. Perry and specifically in doing work with general anastesia with young children. Did you have any good/bad interaction with him or his practices with the young children? Did he seem knowledgable in the area? Kristi
