    On the plus side, maybe this time he will find the REAL killer.

    What kind of dentist puts a three year old under general anesthesia in his office, so he can put on two caps and pull two BABY teeth?

    This obscenity is not an isolated incident. It occurs because dentists are reimbursed by Medicaid for procedures that very young children should never receive.

    And, of course, because the state boards of dentistry around the country lack the intestinal fortitude to outlaw these practices and yank the licenses off these dentists.

    Monsters. Imagine spending all day, torturing children, killing a few, for no reason other than greed.
    Interesting, I see it the opposite way. Giving a child anesthesia would make the procedure less tortuous for the child. I am not saying that was the right treatment, but children are put under anesthesia all the time. When I was a kid we all had a tonsils taken out around four years old.

    Who determines what is medically necessary? The patient's doctor, or a bureaucrat who has never examined the patient?

    Putting 3 year olds under is common, it's no more danger to them then anyone else.

    I can imagine doing much dental work on a 3 year old would be near impossible if they felt it.

    And I doubt those baby teeth were just wiggling around or the kid would have pulled them out himself. They were probably still rooted in there so I would like to see you get teeth pulled with no anesthesia or nova cane at least.

    But there is always a slight risk when people go under, that's why they warn you and make you sign something.
    Thanks from Isalexi

    A child could need their tonsils out. Repeated infections can be dangerous.

    They do not need caps on baby teeth.

    Why are 3 year olds seeing the dentist at all?

    To begin with, the collegial body of dentists.

    Well there may have been a problem with the incoming adult teeth they need corrected.

    As for the caps I am not sure unless they are talking about that procedure where people put that coating on their teeth that helps fight cavities or whatever it does, I forget what it's called.

    Whenever I get dental work done I always have them put me under unless its really minor.

    I like to see how far I can count backwards until it hits me.

    I found this:

    First Trip to the Dentist


    By 2 1/2 most children have cut all of their baby teeth, so toddlerhood is a great time to instill good dental habits. "Baby teeth are important because they hold space for permanent teeth," says Judy Ann Taylor, D.D.S., a pediatric dentist in Brooklyn. Decay in baby teeth also increases the risk of decay in permanent teeth.

    Although dentists now recommend that kids see a dentist for the first time by their first birthday, twice-yearly dental checkups and proper care at home are the keys to ensuring pearly whites throughout childhood. For toddlers, however, the first dental visit can be a scary proposition. Strange instruments, loud noises, and new faces can upset even the most nonchalant 2-year-old. But with careful preparation (and plenty of prizes), a first trip to the dentist can actually be fun.
