This message comes in response to "angrymary" in regards to hers comments about JKD. Her statements seem to be totally unfounded and untrue, at least based on the experiences I and my wife have had with that office over the last 3 years. Furthermore, I can honestly say that I have gone to several dentists in the area, both pediatric and general dentist with my children, and I can say, without reservation, that the staff as well as the Dentist (Dr. Spates)- at JKD are "head and shoulders above the competition" . More specifically, everyone was very professional and timely, something you seldom see in most health professional offices. And the statment that she does not allow parents back with their children is absolutly incorrect, because there are chairs in the operatories specifically so that parents and/or siblings can go back with the child to make the whole experience less scary and more pleasant. And while we have been fortunate in terms of the amount of work we have had done, whenever, our son has had more extensive work done, he has received nitrous so that the entire experience has been extremely pleasant for him and for us, his parents(Thank GOD!!). In regards to her being bad with children, I can say that I know people whose children, as do my own, actually look forward to going to the dentist-- something I never did as a child, but then again I did not have a "Just Kids " dentist when I was growing up!!
