I grew up going to the dentist. A lot. So- like for many people- it's not my favorite thing. :)
The good thing is- I have a really good dentist now that I trust and who does great work. And more importantly- I love my hygienist, too.
All of this to say....no excuses....until yesterday- I had not ever taken Parker (who is almost 6) to the dentist! Eeek! Needless to say- I was a little nervous as to what we would find.
And was so so very thankful that she got a good report! What a relief. A blessing! ;)
Sweet girl before we were called back. I think she was a little nervous, but Payton (my niece) had already been so we had given her a very vivid description of what to expect (Parker likes for us to tell her step-by-step what to expect in almost all things). She knew she did not want to have cavities though!
Like I mentioned before...I love our hygienist and I don't make appointments unless I can be seen by her. Here- Parker is picking out her toothpaste flavor. She chose bubblegum.
She counted her teeth. All 20 were there. And...her 2 front bottom teeth are loose. I can't believe I have a kid old enough to lose her teeth!! She also told us to expect her to get her 6-year molars soon. She's just growing up.
And she did great with the teeth brushing. It tickled her teeth and she was giggling most of the time. I don't remember my trips to the dentist ever being fun when I was little. :)
We left with some fluoride toothpaste, a new toothbrush, and a piece of peach trident gum (Parker's favorite). Now....if only all of her dental appointments will go this well. :)
