First trip to the dentist!
The boys had their first pediatric dental appointment this week! My sister-n-law recommended a wonderful dentist to us, and we had a great experience! It definitely helped that the boys had video games and toys to play with in the waiting room. After being called back, the boys received sunglasses to protect their eyes from the dentist's "flashlight". They watched Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on the big flat screen TV's while we waited. The dental assistants were super sweet and explained every single tool to Carson before they even started. The dental tools even had fun names so that the kids are not scared...so smart! Carson layed perfectly still and did absolutely wonderful during his cleaning! He was excited to get a new Lightning McQueen toothbrush and toothpaste when he was finished. Tanner sat on my lap during his cleaning. His was just done with a toothbrush, then his flouride treatment. He did great too, but the dentist said he has 3 small chipped teeth! Yep, that's our active boy! They were very minor, but it was noted! :) After the dentist was all done with the boys, he gave them each a token for the treat machine in the lobby. We are so thankful for a great experience and for healthy teeth and gums!
