Dentists in Ticino / Lugano area

Hello everybody

I was just wondering if anyone might possibly recommend a good dentist in the Lugano area?

Ideally, they would speak English and essential they are good with small children. I appreciate we might not be able to go for regular check-ups just now but am keen to have a dentist in case of emergencies too.

Thanks very much

RASZ

I've used Fabrizio Casanova for decades, my wife Croce Verde.

Jokes aside, isn't Croce Verde a hospital?

The OP stated that he just wanted to know of a good one in that area in case of emergencies, for now.

My dentist called me a few days ago to reschedule a cleaning/check-up appt. that was originally set for next month. She re-scheduled it for May and also mentioned that they're only open for emergencies right now.
