We've had issues in the past with Dr evans (the dentist) giving out information that contradicts the American Dental Association regarding breastfeeding, but today my husband informed her of my daughter's sensory issues and that she doesn't like her face messed with and the dentist physically restrained her (anyone wrote working with sensory kids knows you do NOT restrain them unless it's life or death and you hurry the hell up if you do have to) while she took more than 15 minutes to brush her teeth VERY roughly while chit chatting with my husband (all the time our daughter was screaming her head off) and kept sternly telling her to stop screaming and stop spitting. Then told my husband to not give her any juice in her water at all (completely contradicting the information she'd given us previously-and again sensory child she can't taste or sense the water at all without any flavoring in it, it feels like drinking air to her) When I called to complain the office manager said that they talk to all the parents and that there's nothing wrong with the way the dentist handled my child-that they deal with sensory children all the time and "that's just how they are" . My daughter can't stop crying and clinging to my husband and won't open her mouth for anything even though she's never had an issue letting us brush her teeth before.

I drive clear across Knoxville for my children to see Dr. Townsend. It is out of my way to go here but worth it! The movie screens on the ceiling for the children to watch while receiving treatment is great! But the way Dr. Townsend greets the children as they come in is what makes this office so special. You would have thought your children were the only ones in the office that day (and we are treated this way everytime we come in.) My kids love going to the dentist just to see Dr. Townsend!
