Micah Claire's first visit to the Dentist!

This morning Micah Claire had her very first dental appointment. She was so excited. She wanted to leave as soon as she woke up this morning. I was really nervous that she was going to freak out once she got there and got into the dental chair; but I was wrong. She did GREAT!

She couldn't wait to get out the door this morning.I had to fill out all her "new patient" paper work and she kept saying; Mom what are you doing; Mom are you done yet; Mom can we go see the dentist yet. She just about drove me crazy. But once we turned in our paper work they quickly called her back; and she was READY!Ms. Cindy showed her all the tools first and explained what everything did! Micah Claire listened to her and watched her super closely!Then she cleaned scrapped all her teeth. She sat there so calm and still; I was so proud and impressed with my girl!!!!Then it was time to really clean them. They told me about 6 months ago to start using an electric toothbrush to help M.C. get use to the noise and movement in her mouth. That was the best advise ever! That electric cleaner didn't phase her one bit!

Then it was time for a little flossing. Then Dr. Child's came in and checked all 20 of her teeth and said they were pretty and perfect!!!! M.C. got a new toothbrush and a sticker. She was so excited; but all the way home she kept asking why they didn't give her a sucker. LOL! I hope our next visit, in 6 months, goes just as smoothly!

It really is nice to look back on these, and see how your daughter's first dental visit went. That should show how she could work with medical treatments in the future. It seems she did exceptionally well here, so this is great news for the well-being of her teeth. Her dentist went by this step-by-step enough to not only make her understand the necessity, but also make her a part of the process. Thanks for sharing this with us. Cheers!
