    Hey, my daughter is seven years old and she has got hypothyroidism. She has got some problem with her pituitary gland and that has interfered with the production of thyroid hormone. Doctors have termed this condition as congenital hypothyroidism.
    She has dental cavities as she has the habit of consuming too many chocolates. I am planning to take her to a dental clinic, which provides children dentistry services ( http://www.centenarydental.com/female-kids-dentist-dr-stacey-stein/ ) in Toronto.
    Is it okay to take a child with hypothyroidism to a dentist? What are the things to be noted before taking her to a dentist?

    Make sure to ask them to use a thyroid collar if they do x-rays. Any good dentist will have one available.
