first trip to the dentist

A few days before we had the baby we took Chica to her very first dentist appointment. This time I wasn't so busy shopping that I couldn't attend. :) We're blessed to know a pediatric dentist through Downline Ministries. He and Danny went through the program the same year and have traveled together on a couple of mission trips since then. His office is pretty far from our house but our experience was totally worth the trip.

The whole office was decked out kid style. They gave Chica a name tag which I loved because everyone immediately knew her name and talked to her like she'd been going there forever. I wasn't sure how she'd do, but she hopped right up on the chair and laid down. She held still throughout the cleaning, flossing and exam. They said she did great for being three years old. Atta girl, Big Girl!

Free toothbrush!! Best day EVER! :)

  1. Atta girl indeed! It looks like a complete success. It seems there were no cavities and it ended with a happy smile. It's great to see good results from the first trip to the dentist, right? Well, may she have more happy and successful check-ups with the family dentist!
