Dentist for 6 years old - ZUG

Any good experience with a dentist for your child in Zug?

SwissGerman&German are OK for us.

First priority is that the dentist is really good with children.

Many thanks.

Re: Dentist for 6 years old - ZUG

I would normally recommend my dentist, but he is definatley not good with children........he is not even good with adults.

He is a complete r-sole.........but he is a great denist.

cheers
SC

p.s. I think maybe he just hates me because i am half his age and we have the same car but mine is a higher spec. He always brings it up.

Re: Dentist for 6 years old - ZUG

Well, maybe if he is a great dentist, it may also work. I don't have a car and most probably I am older than him, so I can't find any reason he would want to hate me....
Would you mind to send me his contact details? Many thanks!

For the sake of your 6-yr old, please find a dentist who will work with young children. You don't want to spoil the experience and scar your child for life.
Just my 2 cents.

By the way, most of the Swiss dentists I went to (visited) have special dentists (often a woman) who treats small children. You just have to ask and book her.
They are usually very kind and play games with the child to ease her nerves.

For me, I visit dentist in DE because it is way cheaper for me but not advisable for small children.

You should also consider getting a Dental insurance for your small child. I pay something like 15chf per month and they pay 50% of everything dental up to some thousands for fixing teeth alignment etc. Ask your krankenkasse.

Looks nice. I AGREE with HAT....better to take time with small children, than to repair adults.

Already did this morning after seeing that braces will be here in 2.5-3 years time.

Apparently, before 7 years old one can be insured at any level with no dental exam. After 7 years old they ask for an examination (unless you choose basic coverage) and they decide what is the maximum coverage you can take. So it is worthy to have it before 7 years old.
