dentist


Grace had her first visit to the dentist (finally!). Our pediatrician recommended that she go after for her first check up when she turned 2. It only took us 11 months to get there. Really though last year was so busy with having a baby, and moving that the dentist just didn't fit into the equation.


Anyway, she did great! She did everything they asked and got lots of prizes and even an award for having no cavities. Oh and the dentist was great! The office was just for kids so it was decorated all fun and had fun kid stuff. She just loved it. I wished they would have had dentists like that when I was a kid! I mean if I got a sticker, a balloon, a little toy frog, an award, a toothbrust and a cool kiddie flosser I might want to go to the dentist more often than every 6 months. Seriously she got all that!

Yay!Glad you liked the dentist! I loved my dentist growing up. For your 1st visit they take your picture & place it on the wall. Then when it's time to go to the "grown up dentist" they give it to you. I think the wall said watch us grow or something!Plus I always got a new toothbrush, tooth paste, &toy! Anyway, Dr. S said for us to find a dentist for Miss Priss now to see by 12 mos. Maybe because she has 101 teeth already?? I was thinking Dr.Scott, but we have 5 to pick from!!! :)
How's the b-day planning going?

Glad y'all finally went. Shoot! We were told to go about a year ago and didn't make it until Bubbie fell and knocked a chip in his tooth- at the end of the summer... so who cares!
