This was Ella Kate's very first trip. She was okay at first but started to be a little skittish when she tried to floss her teeth. She wanted nothing to do with that floss...probably because (shame of all shames) no one had ever flossed her teeth before!! The hygienist tried every flavor they had but she just hated it. So in order not to scare her, they just backed off and let her get up. After she stood up, the hygienist (wonderful, wonderful girl!) talked her into letting her clean her teeth while standing up. So she did eventually get each little pearly white polished.
All in all it was a great trip. We love our new dentist office!
I do have to add...Jake had a cavity about a year ago at his first dentist visit. At that time he had to be sedated to fill it which was a dramatic ordeal in itself! At this visit, they found a problem with the previous filling that had caused a cavity to form in the crack between the filling and the tooth. :( So, we scheduled yet another filling. We decided to try it in the office first without sedation for several reasons - he does really well in the chair and it's also about $400 cheaper!!
I was so proud of my baby boy....he got in the chair and didn't flinch the entire time they worked on him. He sat and had his filling without even a numbing shot! Wow!! Sometimes I just want to squeeze that little face....
Mr. Thirsty is the favorite!
