First Trip to the Dentist

My dentist's office called to remind me of my appointment to get my teeth cleaned. When I got off the phone Hannah said she wanted her teeth cleaned too. So I called a children's dentist and made an appointment.
Not fun filling out new patient paper work, especially when you have to do it twice. Hannah and Gavin did so well.
First they got "pictures" (X-rays) of their teeth.
Around every corner they had these bins full of cheap little prizes. Gavin pulled out all the little plastic animals. Hannah found some play money, which she wanted to buy diamonds with, and some jewelery.

Next, the "Tooth-Fairy's friend," the dentist, counted their teeth. She was going to tell the Tooth-Fairy that Hannah has done a good job keeping her teeth clean.
Finally, they got their teeth cleaned. Hannah had a fluoride treatment as well.
I'm so happy their first dental experience was a positive one.

Where did you find a child denist? I have a great one..he would tell Nathan he had cavity bugs in his month and he had to go in and get them. Nathan LOVED it!
