My First Trip to the Dentist!

Today was my first trip to the dentist, and I really don’t know what the big deal was all about! No one thought I would cooperate and get in the chair, let alone let them come near my mouth or even brush my teeth, but I showed them! And I found out I have TWENTY healthy cavity-free teeth! I wish Emily had the same mouth I do…

I really don’t like people with gloves on, so the hygienist let me try some on myself, so they weren’t so scary anymore.

Then she showed me all of her cool instruments, and they weren’t scary at all!

I was a tiny bit nervous when my chair started moving…

… but I warmed right up to it, kicked my feet up and got nice and comfortable for my cleaning!

Their toothbrush is pretty tickly, but I loved the strawberry toothpaste!

There’s even a special sink to fill up my cup of water and swish and spit!

I LOVE my new toothbrush and my big boy floss… now if I could just figure out how to use it…

These are great pictures. I have been looking into a dentist for my family. There are a lot of dentists to choose from. I hope that I am able to find something soon. There are a lot of great dentists to choose from. http://www.dentistryranchocucamonga.com/Teeth_Whitening_Rancho_Cucamonga_CA.html

It seems that Benjamin is really doing well. That is a real, proper first for him, complete with medicine and the hygienist administering it well, and really convincing him in making those visits a habit. I'm glad that his first trip to the dentist was a success. Thanks for sharing that, Karin! All the best to your family!
