non-judgmental, thorough dentist in Toronto?

I have just moved to Toronto, and am looking for a good dentist. I am a grad student at U of T, so something that can be covered by their dental plan would be nice (although not absolutely necessary). The main thing is that they have to be thorough, non-judgmental and be willing to listen to descriptions. I need regular cleaning and check-ups, and want to have a place I trust if god forbid I have dental problems down the road. [more inside]

TMJ, or Scamsville USA?

How much would my mention of the phrase 'TMJ' (a jaw disorder) to a dentist affect his decision to attribute my toothache to grinding rather than to tooth decay? I am worried that I am about to be scammed, due to the fact that (i) my aching tooth (and that tooth alone) has obvious decay, and (ii) that a new dentist was able to attribute my toothache to grinding before actually looking in my mouth.

Dentist filter: dull ache when biting on one tooth!

dentist filter: I have a tooth (upper right molar, second to the last one) that occasionally have a dull pain when I bite on it. It usually happens when I am tired, i.e. when I am sleep deprived. I had a dental cleaning/checkup on Jan. 13, and the dentist didn't say anything. I am out of the country now and have no access to any dentist, and I am really worried. [more inside]

Should my seven-year-old son's dentist knock him out?

Just got home from a dentist appointment with my seven-year-old son. Five of his baby teeth are crowding the rest of his teeth and need to be extracted very soon. But he's extremely anxious at the dentist, and after today's ordeal, they're recommending putting him completely under using IV sedation with an on-site MD. I had IV sedation for my wisdom teeth, and it was amazing, but I'm flat-out terrified to knock out my little boy. He's never had anesthesia of any kind. Is it worth doing? Are there any risks or caveats I should know? Would it be better to stick with oral anasthetic? Help!

Did My Dentist Screw Up My Crown?

A rear molar (#30 for you dental fans) had a chip missing but was otherwise asymptomatic but my dentist recommended a gold crown before the tooth broke and caused greater problems. I followed his advise and while wearing the temporary crown I noticed a new, distinct and very painful sensitivity to cold. He dismissed it as a fluke and installed the permanent crown, but the sensitivity remains and now I can't eat anything frozen without agony. He x-rayed the tooth and found no structural issues, nor did he find any leaks in the seating. He claims that the problem is just routine cold sensitivity and advised aggressive fluoride, but with no prior problem isn't it more likely that he screwed up something and, if so, what?
