First Dental Appointment

on Thursday, June 3, 2010

O had her first dental appointment today.  I'm shocked at how well she did and kicking myself for not getting any pictures.  I scheduled an appointment for myself first and O second.  Apparently, there was a mix up and I didn't need to be there because insurance won't cover a cleaning for me just yet.  That's a different story.  We brought Chicka Chicka Boom Boom to read in the waiting room as it is her favorite book.  I think this is the first time she's ever not been entirely interested. 

Anyway, they called me in, sat me in the chair, found out I couldn't get  my cleaning and so they called O in.  I loved that she was able to sit on my lap and I think that made her feel more comfortable too.  The dentist came in first which is unusual and said that she just wanted to see how pretty O's teeth were and to count them.  She let O touch all of the instruments including the mirror and the pointy stick thing (I have no idea what the technical name is).  O did not like the light at all but the dentist called it Mr. Sunshine and she warmed up to it a little.  She said her teeth look great!  The dentist has a bit of trouble checking the bottoms because O loves to stick her tongue out when you tell her to say "ahhh".  She's such a cutie but had to say "cheese" so they could be counted.  Next was the part I was unsure she'd like, cleaning.  She let them use the electric cleaner and didn't start to cry.  I think it was because she already had her brand new dinosaur cup, brush and timer.

We ended our morning out to breakfast where we enjoyed french toast and strawberries.  I had the most massive latte ever complete with whipped cream.  What a pleasant first experience!
