I need a second opinion about my 4 year olds teeth. The dentist said he needs a baby root canal and 4 silver crowns.

In brief: OK

See another pediatric dentist in Bellwood.
One cannot tell if your child needs this care without an examination.

It sounds to me like the dentist may want the "four silver crowns" for him or herself.

In brief: Don't wait

Cannot give you an opinion without examining your child & x-rays.
Important that all children see Dentist, preferably a Pediatric Dental Specialist (Pedodontist) for initial exam @ Age 1, and every 6 months after that. If you are unsure of Rx Plan, seek 2nd opinion w a Pedodontist ASAP. Please do not put off treatment. By the way, 1st Orthodontic examination Age 7. Best of luck.

In brief: Second opinion

This HealthTap platform is not set up for second opinions.
If you wish to obtain a second opinion from a dentist on HealthTap, you need to use an inbox consult or HealthTap prime. Even better find a second local dentist who can examine your child and give you a comprehensive second opinion. Try to get the second opinion from a dentist who specializes in children.
