I’m not sure if I have the words to express my gratitude for my experience with Dr. Baldy and her team. My daughter is 7 and has Autism Spectrum Disorder. We have searched high and low from Birmingham to Mobile for a dentist that would be understanding to her sensitivities and special needs and had yet to find one. All of the dentists I contacted told me they had experience with kids with ASD but I think it was just basic experience. Her first dental experience in Birmingham, I asked if if she could be put in a private room, if she could sit up straight in the chair and if they could avoid using suction and water. The best we got was a private room. This traumatized my daughter so much it was 5 years before we could see someone else. That’s when we found Dr. Baldy. She was amazing! Her assistant was kind and patient with my daughter. They put her in a private room and let her sit-up straight in my lap. She had her first teeth cleaning in 7 years and it went off without a hitch! Also, while her teeth were being cleaned, one fell out. They brought her a pillow and box that she is so proud of. After the cleaning, Dr. Baldy came in to check her and talked with us for a long time. She didn’t act as if she had somewhere else to be. She answered all of my questions and was amazing with my daughter. Now, I only wish I could find physicians like Dr. Baldy. I will be referring her to anyone I know! Thank you Dr. Baldy and team for the excellent experience and compassion you showed my daughter.
