First Dentist Visit

Last week Grace had her very first visit to the dentist. I had been putting it off since I thought the only reason for going was to get her acquainted with the dentist. But after the doctor mentioned it at her 18 month well baby appointment I finally made an appointment at the pediatric dental clinic (which I didn't even know they had until I called to make the appointment!).

I was told to arrive early since it is a class format with around 10-12 other kids all close to her age and it would be first come, first serve to see the dentist. We were the third patient there! After filling out paperwork and looking at the story boards they had set up it was time to start. Grace got to play in the back with her Grandma while I listened to the presentation on dental hygiene.

After the presentation was over the two pediatric dentists started seeing patients. We only had to wait about 5 minutes until it was Grace's turn. She got her teeth looked at, then flossed, then the dentist painted them yellow with a fluoride shield to help keep them nice and pretty. She told us that Grace had very beautiful and healthy teethe and gums and that we are doing a great job brushing and flossing!

Grace was most excited about the 5 stickers, toothbrush, and paintbrush she got to bring home!

Thanks for keeping us on track with Gracie. So often just the little things are like beautiful music in our ears.
