My soon to be ex-husband hasn't been an intricate part of our 9 year old daughter's life for four years and now he thinks he can come in and decide that he wants her to go to a different dentist. I have been taking her to the same dentist for the last 4-5 years & the ONE time he took her he felt as though the dentist wasn't up to par so he now wants to take our daughter to his dentist. My argument to that is, she has been going to this dentist for years, she has never had a cavity, her teeth are growing in properly & our daughter loves the dentist so why change her. So he says, well I wasn't happy with how she cleaned her teeth & we should agree on the dental care she gets. Well ummm, it's a fine time now for you to all of a sudden decide what kind of care she receives...where were you four years ago?? So I say no...I'm not switching her dentist. If the time comes and she needs an Orthodontist...we can agree on that but I'm not agreeing to pulling her from where she is currently going just because you took her one time over the course of 4 years & didn't like the way she cleaned her teeth. Am I right for feeling this way??
