First trip to the dentist

Lydia had her first dentist visit last week and was an angel! She sat in the chair (mostly) and was surprisingly cooperative. Rather than scare little ones with the electric toothbrush, they put the fluoride and paste on a small child's toothbrush and do them at the same time. Lydia (my little control freak) had to have her own hand on the brush at all times, but let the girl brush her teeth and even opened extra wide! She was great when Dr Johansen did the exam and didn't flinch when he poked around her crowded teeth with the explorer. Having been a dental assistant in a previous life, I was AMAZED at her cooperation! I had to hold down more than one child to just get a peek in a mouth! Let's hope she's always that good!
Since all three girls had a check up, they got three tokens for the carousel and I was dizzy by the time we left. No cavities, just a recommendation for orthodontia for Jenna. (She's only 6!!!)
Good work, girls!

You are such a good mom, my kids still have not been to the dentist. Ooops

Way to go. M just had 6 cavities filled a month or so ago and I felt so bad - I've never had one! How do they know about orthodontia??? (sp?)

Jenna already has 6 of her permanent teeth and they are SOOO crowded. Tim and I both had braces for about 4 years each, so our kids are doomed!
