How on earth do I find a good dentist?

I have many friends, relatives and colleagues who are enjoying the sleepless nights that accompany expanding families. As a dentist, I need to be able to give a little more help than simply saying, It's only teething…

Throughout history, teething has been held responsible for a wide variety of childhood illnesses. There are references to teething difficulties in the Homeric hymns from around 1200 BC and in the prayers of early Indian literature around 1000 BC. In the fourth century BC, Hippocrates wrote a short treatise ‘On Dentition’:

‘Teething children suffer from itching of the gums, fevers, convulsions and diarrhoea, especially when they cut their eye teeth and when they are very corpulent and costive’.

Ambriose Pare (1517-1592), the French army surgeon, began to advocate a new solution to the age old problem of ‘breeding teeth’: cutting the gums with a lancet. In 1575, he described how he developed the method, from the examination of a dead child:

"When we diligently sought for the cause of his death, we could impute it to nothing else than the contumacious hardness of the gums… when we cut the gums with a knife we found all the teeth appearing… if it had been done when he lived, doubtless he would have been preserved."

And later:

"…of which kind remedy I have with prosperous and happy success made trial in some of mine own children… which is much better and more safe to do as some nurses do, who taught only by instinct of
